  1. New one. Trying to aim with a controller
  2. Try their PUBG videos next. They're too funny.
  3. Maybe. Not sure I agree. Just because it's a practice with some big business doesn't make it something to be just shrugged off. But the pertinent point for me is that the promises were made anyway, in the face of all the questions in the beginning about the possibility of this very thing happening eventually. And for me, drowning unwanted puppies is reprehensible and won't be forgiven. Sure, we always knew that "some" features would be held back as "Wurm Exclusives." That's fine, and was stated at the beginning. But the promise being broken was that WU would always continue to get graphical updates, bug fixes, and "most" new features. WU was to be the sister game, not the unwanted puppy tied into a bag and tossed in the river.

    I really don't think many are talking about shutting down WU and removing it from Steam, not sure where that's coming from. What people are upset about is the broken promises of always supporting WU, that it was to be a sister game, not an unwanted stepchild, and that it would "always" get "all" updates except a few features that would be held back like rifts. It was also promised that it would "always" get all graphical updates. Now it's just being dropped like a piece of trash. There was a lot of skepticism in the beginning and a lot of questions about the potential for this sort of thing happening and everyone was assured that it would not happen. Oh, and we get a final " bugfixing update?" And then you're done with us? Since when has a bugfixing update ever fixed all the bugs? lol. Thanks, I needed a good laugh in the midst of all this. Speaking for myself of course, but I know a lot of others feel the same, my trust has finally gone completely out the window. I've tried to believe in this company for so long. Sure, I believe you (collective you, the company), will be making an "official" statement. Like all the "official" statements that were made before? What I don't believe any more is that we can put any stock or faith in what's being said. Quite honestly, I doubt I'll believe a single word. You now say "...it won't be getting any of the new WO updates......." Interesting that back when we were all sold on WU in the first place it was "it won't be getting all of the new updates." Big difference there. To be perfectly honest, I'm starting to really regret that I've continued to support WO all this time by continuing deed upkeep and premium in WO even though I've been playing WU. Now I honestly don't know that I care to continue giving my money to a company I can't trust anything they say. Look at my signature. It's something I live by.
  5. Yeah, I haven't either. But I suspect that's due to my playstyle rather than any imagined virtue on my part. I'm too easily distracted by other things I need/want to do at any given time, plus I just don't have the stick-with-it-iveness to do one thing long enough to trigger it. BUT........(and this is a biiig But..), in principal the fatigue function should never have been a thing in a game where you are paying a monthly fee to play. Any mechanic that prevents you from accessing what you are paying for needs to go. I am fully on board with those who want it gone, and I can sympathize with those who's preferred playstyle does trigger it.
  6. LOL. Hard to come up with much more than LOL. Maybe ROFLMAO! Wasn't even gonna bother posting in this thread but I'm just in that kind of mood this morning. The whole thing sounds like the ravings of some con artist pyramid scheme, get-rich salesman with that talk of how it should be "half game and half mutual fund investment software" and putting in x hours per day like a job, and return on investment, blah, blah, blah. Either that or the enthusiastic but nonsensical ramblings of someone like a relative of mine who is high-functioning autistic. Harmless but not to be taken too seriously. Then again, could just an incredibly elaborate troll post by someone with way too much time on his/her hands. LOL.

    Sure, it can happen. Of course, in WU, the actual money spent by the player is usually so minimal as to be not worth considering in the overall scheme of things unless someone goes batshit crazy "donating" for more useless cosmetics than they really need, on servers that have a shop. But only a few WU servers have any kind of a cash shop anyway and as a rule on those that do, the value for what you spend is worth it if you use any kind of common sense. The majority are completely free once you own the game, so what do you really lose if they go down. (unlike WO where one has conceivably spent hundreds or thousands over the years and have to keep paying monthly for deeds and/or premium). Also, I like to think of it as not keeping all my proverbial eggs in one proverbial basket. Personally I play on a few different, very well established servers. I would say the odds of any those cutting & running are about on par with this new company that took over WO doing the same. But if one does go down, I still have the others I play on. It would be annoying, sure, but not devastating since the money I've spent on WU is a drop in the bucket compared to what I've spent on WO for a comparable period. edit: Losing the work put in would also be annoying, to be sure, but that's somewhat mitigated if it's a server that didn't take as much "work" as WO. Still would be a bit easier to take than if WO ever goes down, where the work and money over the years are not even in the same league as WU.
  8. -1. For all the reasons others have stated in this thread. And for all the reasons others have stated in the many previous threads over the years on this subject. All of which I will take the liberty of assuming you already know full well, judging by the creation date of your forum account.
  9. +1. Add to that the ability to plant grass & trees on those tiles. It's always been a minor burr under my saddle that there's always a few tiles that have to be dirt, disfiguring an otherwise pleasing view of your water line. Once upon a time, when I was still new to Wurm, I tried to make a little pond with benches, grass, and willow trees. The picture in my head was a far cry from what it actually turned out like, due to all the stupid dirt tiles I could do nothing about without raising the offending corners above the water line which created a pond with square jagged lines, ruining the natural curves I'd created by having certain corners submerged in varying degrees.

    Yep. When I log into WO after playing WU, it's so tedious I have to log back out after a short time. I feel like I'm trying to play handicapped, half blind, and bogged down in mud. So then imagine the people who own WU, already tried it, and found it too slow, grindy, and tedious. Hard to imagine any of those people enjoying WO. Oh, and nothing wrong with "kiddy stuff." hehe. It is a game after all. You don't stop playing because you get old, you get old when you stop playing. :)

    LOL. This sounds like the FUD to me (or whatever is the opposite of FUD). *smiles sweetly*
  12. Maybe if they make one Steam server as a destination for one-time, one-way transferred WO accounts, (but keep the rest of the Steam WO servers permanently separated), and make it known to anyone starting on that server that it will be populated with older, transferred accounts, it might solve part of that problem. At least that way, people could keep their characters they've worked on for years. Should def be one-way though. I can see where transferring back to the RMT side would definitely be a problem not easily solved.
