  1. When they announced last year’s black friday sale, it was on Nov. 20th, so I would assume if we don’t hear anything by the 20th or a little later then it won’t happen.
  2. +1 I think the small cart model would have to be changed slightly so you can sit in it, should be easy. The speed would probably be slower than the large cart with horses/bulls.
  3. +1 for rideable bison. In addition, I also think allowing bison to wear gear to increase speed similar to horses should be implemented.
  4. I think the merge is simple. Just allow people on NFI and SFI to sail to each other’s servers by boat. Allow the trade channel to display messages from NFI and SFI at the same time. Allow sending items from NFI and SFI through mailbox. Skills and items all transfer when crossing NFI servers to SFI servers and vice versa.
  5. If it does happen, I bet most old players who play on NFI will revert back to their toons from the SFI. If there are no plans for attracting and retaining new players, I’d say merging is a not a bad idea if things continue as it is.
  6. With the significantly decreasing population growth on the NFI, I don’t see why merging NFI and SFI would be a bad thing. We are averaging about 400 players and alts included on all NFI servers at peak hour on Niarja. Unless there is some plan to advertise and entice new players to come to Wurm Online to increase the population five fold like in the beginning of the steam launch, merging the NFI and SFI could be one of the best courses of action to take to keep the current populations somewhat connected.
  7. I think it would be better to connect Defiance with the other servers. I’m seeing Defiance head towards Chaos population levels at this point in niarja.
  8. Will current 5 speed horses/hell horses/bison become slower with the new update? 5 speed horses go around 25km/hr peak without horse gear. 5 speed bison go 18km/hr on a wagon. I am not sure what a 5 speed hell horse peak speed is since I’ve never rode one before. We appreciate your response.
  9. I am wondering the same thing, this was not addressed clearly at all for such a major change to AH.
  10. I am not sure if we really need 23 new traits, I never met anyone personally who had issues with the number of traits currently. The new items, horse shapes, and in game wurmpedia changes are a welcomed update to the game.
  11. I’m not sure what good creating another new server will do, as it will further split the community apart. However, I do think keeping the NFI and SFI separated in the long term is not good for the game at this point.
  12. The only reason I continue to play is because I purchased a year's worth of premium on Black Friday. I will consider quitting for good once that runs out.
  13. The devs are in the right direction with the upcoming changes to enhance the new player experience, but it is way overdue. Changes like the straw bed and donkey will help retain new players to the game. Maybe keep at these changes and release into Epic Games Store, coming in the market a bit more prepared than the Steam release?
  14. It is still an issue even in Harmony’s lower population levels. It has been this way since the beginning of the steam release and not a lot was done to address it. You can’t find any wild horses or bison in the steppes or anywhere in the wild.
  15. If only the donkeys came earlier before the steam release day, it would have helped out the potential 1000+ new players which is now lost. This was way overdue. Why is the dev team suddenly changing their ways and releasing very late changes to help out new players?
  16. It is a shame that this straw bed was released this late, it should have been implemented before the Steam release.
  17. As the title says, Give all priests the ability to cast Mend. I don’t understand why only Vynora can cast Mend on items/tools that can’t be repaired regularly.
  18. This is partially true, but eventually the NFI and SFI will merge. From what I experienced with merchants, is that often times their wares are more expensive than what people offer on Trade chat. Also many players don't like to leave their deeds and spend time traveling, which also contribute to dead marketplaces. Most of that population lost on SFI is just old players switching over to NFI, they will eventually come back when the merge happens. It was in Code Club's and/or Game Chest's interest to merge the sever clusters at some point.
  19. There is no doubt that connecting the NFI to the SFI is in the works for the future.
  20. The next question is: What will the devs do to bring in more new players to Wurm and retain them, now that the new servers release hype has died down? Lack of advertising for the game is one thing, but in the long term will we ever see a huge influx of new players like in the first week or two again? What can be done to accomplish this again?
  21. Everyone wants to see Wurm succeed, but if the devs don't take any suggestions or measures to improve the game at heart for new players, the Northern Freedom Isles could suffer the same fate as the Southern Freedom Isles.
  22. Maybe if the devs actually cared about Xanadu and getting more new players to settle, they should fixed its major lag issues early on. +1, I agree Melody was mistake, unnecessary small server that is losing players fast. It will eventually end up like Deli, Release, Exo, and Pristine. +1, Remove that sign at the tutorial portal as well.
  23. The Steam release for Wurm Online could have been executed much better. 1.They should have made the initial PVE server 32x32 instead of 16x16 to avoid the early server expansions. 2. The devs could have fixed the difficulty in finding livestock and mobs MUCH sooner, I believe this is partly the cause of new player discouragement for the game. 3. The channeling exploit could have been addressed MUCH sooner as well, but the devs decided to wait 3 WEEKS from the start of the new cluster, to tackle the issue and controversy about it. 4. The devs had a plethora of time to address server lag issues with higher player counts, this issue has been present since Xanadu first came out and they have yet to come to an effective solution for YEARS. 5. This ties in with #1, but the devs split the community WAY too soon. This is my opinion, but I think with our current Northern Freedom Isles PVE population, it would be nice to have everyone on the same server instead of scattered throughout.
  24. Its not looking to good, population growth slowed down a lot.
  25. I’m on the fence about adding more servers. The population growth of the Northern Isles hasn’t been growing much, I’ve been seeing the weekdays total about 750-800 something on PVE servers in niarja, which takes into account alts and unique players. I’m just not sure if splitting the community further like this is the right choice.
