  1. I suggested to remove it from the upcoming event. It's not in game yet. Obviously the candies and the other stuff is already in game.
  2. Alright I'm sorry but here it is. I always praised how this game always did a good job with updates and for good reason. But I don't get those atrocious cosmetics. Bunny ears? Are you kidding me? This is way too far. I don't get the buckets and the candy canes either. When I thought the worse has come to pass we are getting bunny ears - truly the end times. Are you guys aiming at giving this game with no cashop those cheap abandonware MMO cashop vibes or what's the purpose? Not to mention those bunny ear costumes can have some vulgar connotations irl. Mortal Online 2 is going on UE5 - no clown cosmetics. Upcoming MMOs: Pax Dei, Ashes of Creation, Pantheon and now I hear Life is Feudal 2 (an old copier of Wurm mechanics) - no clown cosmetics. Star Citizen - no clown cosmetics. I'm sorry to say but for all it's good gameplay and landscapes and house building etc. this game is going to pale in comparison to those when new players will see a bunch of toons wearing candy and bunny ears/backpacks and what not - landmark characteristic of abandonware cashshop MMORPGs (which Wurm isn't). It's like self sabotage considering this game has been getting really nice cosmetics e.g. jackal skins, claymore/messer skin, the winged corinthian skin, jewelry cassette skin and the list goes on. Sorry for sounding insufferable I might sound insufferable but I invested a lot of time and money in this game and I hate to see it like this. My suggestion: remove at least the bunny ears from the easter update they are totally absurd. I'd suggest remove the stuffed rabbit and the knapsack as well but for some reason (absolutely baffles my mind) Wurm team seems to be pushing those cosmetics.
  3. Kinda like they added those motorcycle mounts in WoW. You're right it would silly, so pls no.
  4. Why the faith requirements. Anyone should be able to partake!
  5. You should come to those events sometimes. At one they had a small shop with a counter and everything where they mixed blood. Really cool. And people were like sitting in queue there. Also tons of players.
  6. Especially not if they want to expand, grow and keep the lights lit. Just because NCSoft and Call of Duty can pull this off it doesn't mean clown cosmetics is a meta for making money appliable to just any situation. In it's situation it's actually detrimental. A cashop isn't necessarily all evil. Just like pay for silver thing in Wurm or EVE is actually helpful I think. I'll give you one example of when me and a friend wanted to buy clown cosmetics off LotRO store: we wanted to get bare chested dwarf cosmetics to troll roleplayers on our roleplay server. I have some immersion breaking ideas for Wurm as well... : > Don't test me, lol. I can turn this game in a circus (with what is already available).
  7. Yes. Keep aesthetics. There is literally no one upset about the lack of clown cosmetics in any MMO. Except cash shop users in some games, which is not the case here.
  8. I've been playing Mortal Online 2 recently. The devs there are dedicated to not putting "funny costumes" in the game and it looks very good. Even though they use a lot of store assets. In addition to that a lot of people who say they are not bothered by lack of aesthetic cohesion or immersion actually just loose interest in the game and stop playing as the game is "too boring". I saw this happen even in LotRO, where the store assets are actually cohesive with the game's aesthetic but some of them are just too over the top (armor and gear that is much too fancy looking). Funny clowny costumes give a really cheap vibe to the game. When people mass up for a pve event you will end up seeing a bunch of clowns wearing buckets, teddy bears, santa hats and lollipops. This is not an OK approach for a game with monthly subscription. I know it doesn't have an actual dreaded cash shop, but the more reason to not put this nonsense in the game. The reason all the clown cosmetics exist in other MMOs is to lure some people to get the from the store with real money. What does WO gain from them in it's situation? Nothing, just loses. I apologise if this sounds harsh, but it's only because the game actually has good art and aesthetics overall. If it didn't it wouldn't bother me as anything graphical wouldn't matter on it. I've always praised the devs for the good work they been doing and rightly so. But this is a small matter that I think brings too much harm for 0 benefit. If they made a winged great helm or a ghilded great helm that would have still served the purpose of a monthly cosmetic with no harm to the game's aesthetic. And more than that I dare say it would have been a quick win: a variation of the already existing great helm model with wings on it, maybe the artist could have found something already made to start with. Also you probably play this game constantly for many years. You don't have a first impression of the game when you play like new players would. I sometimes showed the game to friends and got stuff like "lol why is he wearing pumpkins on the shoulders?" X_X.
  9. Nothing against asian MMOs or Aion. I played Aion a lot and will still play it. But the cosmetics are ridiculous, and seeing this in Wurm? Please stop.
  10. Totally agree. Guys please stop adding those ridiculous cosmetics or the game will look like some asian MMO like Aion.
  11. Figured it. Multiple trees with one slightly higher.
  12. What tree is that? Mine looks a bit shaggy compared to yours.
  13. Next update I gotta be more prepared.
  14. This just came out 2 hours ago loool Must be the first ever rare cartography table.
  15. This looks very good! I was afraid lol... they would show the players position or something. Amazing stuff guys.
  16. Nice work, guys. Hope it goes well
  17. Presets could work as mentioned above. But I'd rather see it more exclusive, not everyone planting a small deed having their own heraldry. Either it can cost some insane amount like a couple gold. And/or have some achievement requirements. Eligibility could also be tied to the Lomaner titles but that alone is not enough as alts can also have those. Also it should be possible to manage who can show your logo, so you can also give it for example to your alts or have maybe an alliance emblem. Oh and it should be cross Freedom/Epic. It's a personal logo after all.
  18. Would be nice to get in some special month (maybe for January : > with new year and stuff) skins for a whole suit of this kind of medieval plate armor. Of course this should cost more loyalty points as it's a full suit of armor. Would spend all of them if we get something like this, won't lie.
  19. @WO Team I don't want to nag. Normally, especially in my case, I would agree that we should have made sure to be slightly earlier for the deal - you know being proactive etc. etc. Especially since CA also told me the timezone in game but I forgot it. However life can be very eventful, especially before the holidays for some people. Sometimes we can give a thread like this a quick read - see Sunday there and assume it's in our time and not give it anymore thought then be surprised on Sunday we were not in time for the deal. Best is to put it till the last Sunday in the world or tell them the timezone. In my case I actually thought it would end later than my timezone Who would have thought WO is using Athens,Istanbul,Bucharest,Moscow time and not CET hihi Or maybe it was daylight saving hour, who knows... See? It's complex. I already got some stuff for the deal - am just missing some alt prem which I am gettin anyways when I have more time to play em. You guys do awesome deals, real actual deals, not the increase to decrease stuff we see nowdays. It is already a deal anyway - WO would be worth 30eur per month if WoW is worth 15, not gonna lie. Not some fanboy, I played WoW too as wee lad but man that game is so devoid of actual interesting MMO gameplay. Still refreshin...
  20. This while travelling through the woodlands of Wurm in spring:
