  1. It fooled me- I thought I had a field of new-born foals! Surely we are not going to complain too much for something that has been done with the very best of intent even if it does not suit us?
  2. I write the following as a person who loves Wurm, has played for a decade now and has paid premium throughout that time: I sometimes play for two or three hours during every evening and most of that time I see no chat at all in my server. If I was a new player just trying out Wurm I would probably give it a few days and then try somewhere else without discovering the amazing game that we have here. I also write this as a person who is not a 'chatty' person myself but do enjoy the feeling of belonging to a community. It is therefore surely evident that some things need to be tried out in order to encourage people to try Wurm and then stay. As MrGARY stated earlier and elentari expanded on, free to play characters can in fact be just as important as those like me who pay. They help create the sense of community, they help with the 'imagination' of a vibrant active world that is simply waiting to be explored. In the real world, the VIP who pays more money for a better view of a sports event is no more important than the crowd in the tier furthest away from the action who in fact are the ones who create the atmosphere at such events. What could be done? That is the great unknown but it will remain unknown until ideas have been tried out. As a premium player I receive rewards every month that I can exchange for items that benefit me in-game. I would be quite happy if that was the main difference between f2p and p2p- I am sure that others would disagree! I would also take a risk with substantially raising the levels achievable by f2p to at least 70. This would allow the 'free' player more time to get involved (hooked) in Wurm. I suspect that those who remain for longer will be more likely to invest in the premium side the further up-the-ladder they travel. Events are often a source of great enjoyment in Wurm for older and some new players and there are those players who put a great deal of time, money and effort into creating things such as impalongs and unique hunts. Most of them seem to be the sort of person who does it for the love of the game but I feel that it would be good if such people received something not obtainable by others as a commemoration of their input into Wurm. Are my ideas, comments and suggestions going to help? Quite possibly not and earlier Maiya wrote something that will ring a bell; 'Common sense- if too many people enjoy the free ride... and not enough people help pull, the wagon is not going anywhere' I would try to be a little more positive and say that if we had more people enjoying the ride some of them may be encouraged to get off the cart and start pulling.
  3. So glad to see that you have stayed on! From my comment on your leaving thread: 'You say that you still love the game. That in itself tells me that in your heart of hearts you really do want to stay in our ever-expanding Wurm world. I hope that you will think again about your decision and give it another go- perhaps trying another server or even Wurm Unlimited' I find that playing Wurm 'the casual way' is a most enjoyable experience and fully recommend it to you. I do not play on Melody or indeed any of the new servers, however, I shall wait with interest to see how you get on with your dream deed. Good luck from a Pristine island-dweller!
  4. Some good ideas Katrat. I thought of a few more here. Guard 1 "Sigh! Oh, just a minute" Guard 2 "Again? Already?" Guard 3 " When are you going to improve your own sword?" Guard 4 "But I've just healed myself!" Guard 5 "Hi Ho Hi Ho , Its Off To Work We Go!!" Guard 6 "I want danger money"
  5. Retrograde, thank you for all the work that you have done to inform us of developments in Wurm and your undoubted efforts to make this information more open or clear to all the community. I can only imagine the time you put into all your work and those times when you had to give news that some folks would not want to hear- that is when you really did need a 'thick-skin' (now on sale 25s from the store!). I hope that you can now enjoy some game-time in this great game. Wherever you play or whatever you do next, I wish you the greatest of success- stay lucky! Oh, and a great welcome to DemonaNightshade- all the very best!
  6. In my almost 10 years of playing Wurm, I have enjoyed my time so much thanks to the great community but today I am writing about enjoyment and ultimately sadness on a completely different scale. At the end of 2016, I saw news of a Wurm Unlimited server that was to be opened soon. It was written by someone who I had been following through their Wurm adventures on YouTube It is now over four years since I took the ‘chance’ and plunged into life on Mystic Highlands. It is my sad duty to report that this morning Mystic Highlands server was closed down. 'Alas, this day was going to come some day or other, it is with very heavy hearts that we must announce that Mystic Highlands will have to be closed down on the 15th February 2021 for good' I am incredibly sad and yesterday I spoke to many citizens about what we had all achieved and enjoyed and to be honest, tears were shed at times. I would like to thank those who made Mystic Highlands possibly the greatest ever Wurm Unlimited server. Valiance, Kaylie, and Razathor, you achieved a wonderful dream. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the MANY things that you did in order to create these lands, put on wonderful events and support us all. No-one worked harder than you to create these wondrous lands. Valiance and Kaylie I hope that you stay well and enjoy great happiness and success in the future in everything that you do. To my neighbours and good friends Duskwind, Windwalker and Debbie I thank you for being great friends, wonderful fun in chat and simply the best of people. To all the citizens who came to Mystic Highlands, thank you all for creating this wonderful land and for making it a place of fun, fantastic architecture and great community. I shall miss the wonderful buildings created by people with skills far greater than my own. Most of all I shall miss riding around the roads, lanes and forests of Mystic Highlands on my trusty white horse Nadacopper who was with me every day I played. To anyone who suggests closing down Wurm Online server because of this or that, I say please never do it! To all at Mystic Highlands I say you will never be forgotten. Thank you so much!
  7. [23:00:01] You have received a box of chocolates! Happy Valentine's Day! Thank you Wurm!
  8. Your idea is laid out in a logical and genuine way, however, I would be against the changes that you are proposing. I have invested almost 10 years of my life in some deeds in Wurm. It would make me genuinely sad if just because I was one of a small group of settlers left on a particular server all my hard work was to be destroyed. It is honestly not the money but the emotional and social investment that would be lost that I would be against. The memories that well-known places and events offer to a player in Wurm are often as a result of the longevity of the game and in my opinion are far too important to be erased even if players are long-since gone and events are simply a fond misty haze. Think what it would be like if the Coliseum or the Roman Wall was to be destroyed in order to provide new building space in Rome or Northumberland!
  9. Congratulations! It is one thing to have a dream, but to have the ability and drive to actually do something about it is impressive. Continued good luck!
  10. I am not sure if this is the place to let someone know about this little problem- apologies if it not! I have recently been creating another floor in a building. I used the wiki to help me create a set of stairs and the page is correctly named: Wide staircase with both banisters When I hover over the staircase in-game I see the correct naming of the structure being built. However, when I view the event tab in-game I see the following text: You attach planks and shafts to a wide staircase with banisiters on both sides. I realise that this is minor, however, it would help you tidy up a tiny loose-end with text.
  11. Well noticed! As most of us are not able to celebrate in real life because of you-know-what it would be good for the soul to be able to celebrate a special occasion in Wurm.
  12. Get well soon- from a neighbour on Pristine
  13. @Bloodreina, there are few people who can say that they 'get on' with everyone. Judging by all the positive comments that you have received during your too-short time here in Wurm, there are many people who value your input and feel that you are an asset to Wurm. We all make mistakes and if you can accept that, then I feel sure that there is a great future for you here in Wurm. The fact that you did not receive any invites to a village or alliance does not mean that people do not want you, rather they value their independence and hermit-like existence. You say that you still love the game. That in itself tells me that in your heart of hearts you really do want to stay in our ever-expanding Wurm world. I hope that you will think again about your decision and give it another go- perhaps trying another server or even Wurm Unlimited. You never know, you may just find a fantastic new start out of this thread? Good luck with your final decision and hope to see you playing for a long time yet!
  14. That is an amazing achievement. You must have repaired the entire server!
  15. Happy New Year to everyone. Let us all hope that 2021 sees some return to normality for everyone no matter who they are and wherever they live.
