  1. For anyone who has a spare 4hrs (lol) we covered off all of the new updates on our Wurm Wednesday stream on Twitch. The good and bad aspects, the impacts and what needs to be done from here and what needs to be tweaked. Feedback and thoughts are welcome, cheers!
  2. Traders will be available to place on Xanadu
  3. Some might say that I have a presence in the community. I've been vocally in support of removing RMT for the past months leading up to this news. We all knew it was coming as soon as the steam launch was announced in typical Rolf style. You'll be upset to know that actually the vast majority of people I've interacted with as a result of these discussions have been in favor of these changes. You're right though, this will cause some people to leave, however this change is made not under the intention of trying to retain people but under the intention of creating a better game for the future. There's no secret that Wurm has been in decline for a long while and Wurm needs to go where people are looking for games to play - which is Steam. It's no secret that RMT has shaped Wurm to where it is today however it IS bad for the game and this change is a good one. It is a shame for my back pocket in that going back 5 years ago my entire game inventory and toons were worth maybe 3-4k euros. Now that's basically nothing, but the basic concept that I should be able to enjoy the game for another 5 years instead of seeing a slow decline until it's servers are shut down due to expenses (which is our trajectory atm). Makes it worth the gamble, I want to see more of these big, decisive changes that will drive Wurm to a proper vision instead of a compromised wishwash, trying to make every player happy. Best of luck to anyone who leaves. Thank you for your contributions to the game and for the enjoyable memories. For those who stay, I look forward to making new memories with you all.
  4. I've swapped my Nacho to Mag and kept my current Fo. Whilst it is a shame to loose some of those spells, definitely think this will be good in the long run I hope. Take the pain now on tough decisions that are in the best interest of the game and it's vision now rather than after you've brought in potentially 1000's of new players which are much less likely to stick around. I would say it's the best way to approach this in the lead up, and it wouldn't surprise me that we'll see more things like this in the coming weeks and months. You understand right that you're saying that your chosen player god filled the role of all 3 priests that originally existed then in the same breath blame PvP balancing as the reason for this change. The fact you could get one priest that could "do it all" in PvE was not good for the game and was not balanced. So realistically when you break it down, the reason this changed was made is the same reason you find yourself upset. Hopefully in time you'll see that this change will mean that there will be some amount of renewed enchants market within the game since people can no longer do everything with one account. You hopefully in time will see a renewed emphasis on collaboration within the game and peoples priests. All of which was common place before players gods became such a focus.
  5. Personally I ALWAYS hated the Player god mechanic. It was always broken and unbalanced, I think it's just a shame that it's taken the devs to realise this was terrible idea in the first place. Ongoing a focus on just 4 major gods makes complete sense and hopefully result in a better balanced game in the long-run both for PvP and PvE. Whilst I can understand some peoples frustrations on not being able to access some important spells (because certain player gods were more blessed than others). The fact that one god has so many crucial spells for your everyday stuff is a perfect demonstration that some were OP and others vastly irrelevant on the basis of the order of the algorithm that they were generated under. I feel like Wurm is going to be making many more of these unpopular and hurtful changes in the lead up to releasing on steam. However, looking forward. It's better to make these changes now than continue to pretend its not an issue and have continued impacts hurting the game. (This applies not just to player gods but also to many other factors of the game I hope to see changed.)
  6. You know I always had an immense amount of respect for the work and attention to detail of this deed. I always loved stopping by your place on stream and showing this to people who haven't played this game before to show people what the "endgame" for Wurm really looks like. I'm very sorry that you're leaving and I really REALLY hope that someone purchases this deed. It's such an incredible place which has served as inspiration for both myself and many other players. To have it decay away to nothing would be a huge loss. I am chuffed to hear your Wurm love story though and I wish both yourself and Zorana all the very best in the future. For any potential buyers, say hi since we'll be future neighbors!
  7. I never had the pleasure but I wish all the best to all the friends and family affected by this. Rest in Peace.
