You, like me, are part of the group that helped keep Wurm alive through all the years and I'm sure Wurm appreciates your service but our time has passed. RMT or no, the old servers are dead and are an inconvenient anchor around the devs neck now. If they starve the old servers of new players, the hope would be that most old players will either leave or start new toons on the 'money making' servers. I just hope they give us the option later to relocated to the new servers when they close the old ones. I really don't mind starting a new deed just hate the idea of grinding the skills again.
I'm just speculating though
