  1. Slaying uniques personal goal, offer to help

    See post from a dev on exactly this: Answer is basically no.
  2. Add Alpacas!

    Baaad idea, too much wooley thinking going on here.
  3. Wurm Contrails?

    Nicely done, sir.
  4. More Time Please

    It was originally anounced that the personal goal system would be going away something like 6 months ago. So plenty of time to complete them before the 2-month warning. It sucks for you personally, and I'm sorry for that, but aside from the 3 months premium, if you really want to do it, it can be done (and there are people who will help). Regarding doing goals on epic, so long as the last one you complete is on pve, you'll get your reward on pve. So if you want to do the slaying goal on epic, don't leave that until last.
  5. Do you like the new fishing system?

    If you can manage to produce a boat, then you're not really a complete beginner. And this is wurm, you can (and will) get randomly attacked basically anywhere. At least there are generally guards available on the shore...
  6. Personal Goals Shutdown

    Just no. You complain about straw men, then say that having to rush to finish your goals means you can't enjoy fishing or the new tutorials? Unless you've somehow heard something nobody else has, neither of those are going anywhere; in fact, fishing will probably be a whole lot better in a month or so, once the initial launch bugs have been fixed! So the devs are actually doing you a favour by giving you something else to focus on during the fishing teething trouble, so not only do you get to look forward to giving it a go, when you do, you'll get an even better experience than the folks rushing in at launch. No matter what deadline is chosen, no matter how far in advance it's publicised, there will always be someone who's "almost finished". There was no shortage of notification that the end was coming, and 6 weeks is plenty of notice that it's here. With the greatest of respect, I suggest that if you've decided that completing these (completely artificial) goals really matters to you, you spend less time complaining about them and put the same effort into actually completing them. There are plenty of people here who will offer suggestions on how to do that most efficiently, too.
  7. Personal Goals Shutdown

    There will always be someone who started too late to get full benefit from something before it goes away. Should AFK fishing be extended because someone just started a month ago and wants easy fishing skilling? Of course not! It's tough for you that you fall into this crack, but it's not a surprise at all that personal goals are going away - as others have pointed out, it was clearly announced literally months ago. You still have a reasonable stab at completing in the time left, if you choose to do that; you don't even need to buy anything, if you prefer to do the work yourself. Ultimately, unless you're planning to head off to pvp lands, the reward is basically personal fulfillment (which is entirely up to you) and bragging rights only - tomes are basically epeen and character decoration on freedom. Ultimately, it's a sandbox, so your goals are what you set for yourself. In short, no, the deadline should not be extended because you need more time to finish. If you really want to get a tome in the time remaining, you can, otherwise move on to something else.
  8. Do you like the new fishing system?

    Communicate the dev's vision and plans to everyone outside of the dev team? Yes, we should definitely stop him doing that, and please can we go back to the days of zero warning of any changes at all until they land, and zero explanation or feedback on how things are supposed to work. And I'll be ending my subscription unless the devs do exactly what I want, and kowtow to my aggressive pointing out of every little thing I don't like. Or not.
  9. Do you like the new fishing system?

    Anyone who thinks the customer is always right, has never worked in customer service. Just sayin'.
  10. Rite of Death

    yeah, 'cos 5 hours of sleep is such a horribly pointless thing.
  11. Drat, just bought that a few weeks back. Really amazing game!
  12. Patch Notes 17/DEC/18 Gone Fishing

    So does heal cure disease again? Or is that still gone?
  13. Capes ...add capes! Please?

    Meh. So many better things to spend dev time on.
  14. Major issue with rude people

    Unfortunately, the community has many toxic folks, who like nothing more than to stir poop. I generally don't talk to people I don't have at least some connection with (e.g. having actually seen around a lot), as it's easier. Just because someone chooses not to respond to you, doesn't mean it's a problem - some folks just prefer not to. Also, the 'not read yet' forum PM thing is misleading at best, and plain wrong a lot of the time. You can easily have read the message, but still see that. Don't take it as gospel.
  15. Valrei International. 074

    Wait, from x to y? Is this some crazy new date format?!?
