  1. As it says in the title. WTS Cedar (slower to decay) Corbita, 30ql, delivered to Harmony, Cadence, or Melody to any coastal location accessible from the open seas. Asking 20s. Thanks!
  2. This was the problem I was referring to.
  3. This isn't a new problem, nor would I even say it's an exploit. It's not like the staff have been unaware of this strategy and suddenly need to react. Yes, it needs to be changed, but it's a systemic problem that has existed for years. This, aside from the cap being broken which certainly needed an immediate fix.
  4. The faith/channeling system has long been overdue for a change (for the better). I get that you folks there developing the game have had a lot on your plate, but this should have been addressed back when the 2s prem, and the resulting nerf in method of gaining faith/channeling, was removed from the game. The fact that the discussion never happened, and the knee-jerk change this recent patch looks like, some would consider inexcusable. Personally, I gave up on priesting awhile ago, as I think the system is wasteful and unnecessarily convoluted to get any value for your premium time. Obviously if one wants to be competitive in PvP, they are going to feel more pressure to buy that crappy product. They did that, and now the people who didn't buy as hard and fast are getting spanked? Honestly doesn't seem right.
  5. This all just really highlights the problems with the channeling grind. A new solution is needed. There was talk of opening a discussion about what that might be back when 2s first month prem and the faith/channeling grind around that went dodo. Perhaps this might be a good time for that to actually happen; perhaps, formulate a plan for how to improve faith and channeling at once. Even throw meditation into the mix for a real trifecta of progress?
  6. Running the installer to get the option to choose the preview client killed my keybinds. Not fun. This isn't so much a new ui as a reskinned ui, am I correct?
  7. And... just to update that feedback, on the west coast of Canada (Vancouver, good connection), I'm getting probably an average of 2s of input lag at this point.
  8. Post transfer lag is a lot better now. Thanks for that! Could probably use a touch more imo ,but its playable now!
  9. This still occurs. Log just chocked full of While cleaning error state: GL ERROR: (1282) o7
  10. Again, kinda making my point. It worked for some, and was solving a problem. You guys do a pretty good job rationalizing why you shouldn't gain revenue or a silver drain in game (effectively the same thing). What we're really not hearing is what harm it was doing to the game, other than 'your chef's knife shouldn't be used to cut cheese'. In any case, yeah, a solution to the problem would be well received, I think, whatever that be.
  11. Yeah, but don't forget a lot of veteran players are more vocal on the forums. I know of quite a few cases of the 2s getting people their first taste of Wurm prem perks. It was crucial for giving them the opportunity to earn their next 10 with usable skills. There is now no viable non-cash option for them. New player retention is one hell of a hurdle for an aging game in a niche genre without making it harder. I use a chef's knife to slice cheese. Doesn't mean I should have my chef's knife suddenly taken away, especially without a wire cheese board ready to go, because the design of a chef's knife wasn't specifically for slicing cheese... The 2s prem solved a problem that needs solving. If you're willing to consider discussing a solution, you're basically making the argument that maybe the 2s prem wasn't that useless a thing after all. Only, this comes after the fact after a solution, even if it was not an ideal one, has been ninja'd out of existence without a ready replacement. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Am I making any sense? Am I at least making anyone hungry?
  12. It might be confirmation bias but I see a lot of "we're removing this, don't worry we'll fix it later" from this management group. Meanwhile things aren't fixed from years ago. How about catapulting bridges? Any progress? Maybe fixing server travel issues once and for all. Hows that UI coming? How about just letting things, eg. 2s prem, sit until you have it solidly worked out and ready to be replaced (not we're working on a replacement system, but don't hold your breath), as did not happen with the war machine revamp? How about not changing the hell out of things without fixing old bugs and problems? It seems, so much, that we players are asked to shoulder the burden of poor planning and implementation. I myself, am near the breaking point. There is SO much useless work and time wasting in Wurm as it is, I'm not sure I want to continue supporting this management team and it's decisions, when it seems to just get worse. I mean, maybe just come clean, would you rather the OG players just sthu so you can get on with your master revamp of the game for this expected Steam audience? Brand loyalty only goes so far, what happens when you've burned through all that and a new set of people are asked to start shouldering the burden? How long can this model last?
  13. Yeah the 2s for a month of prem was great for new players to come in, make a couple silver during there 'to 20' grind, and get hooked on prem. Happened all over my stream deed with the people I brought in. Also, I was looking forward to a channeling grind that didn't involve so much absolute tedium. In terms of economy, I was prepared to spend 18s on preming up nubbly priests for my grind. Now I will spend 0. *shrugs* Loss of revenue and/or silver drain for wurm. Doesn't seem like the best business decision imo. Also, was this a total ninja change? I don't recall it in the discussion if coming changes.
  14. This started happening to me a couple days ago. Couldn't play at all. Every time I tried to give an input, it the server lagged out. I installed the VPN ^ and it seems to work for the moment. Is there no other fix for this?
