The Best Thing For Wurm's Future

Recommended Posts

Salutations,


 


Seeing as there are mewlers who see it fit to create new forum accounts all the time, to pose/hide/masquerade as a new user or an 'innocent bystander', 3 of us decided to do the same.


 


We want wurm to work, we have been active and playing it for years. We do no cry, we do not whine, and we do not have the usual forum accounts (apart from our merchant accounts). We have been raised in families where we don't malign people, we don't scorn, and for this reason, the malevolent nature of the 'new era' of wurm player, have turned the boards into a place that no self-respecting, people-respecting player wants to be.


 


Here is out suggestion for the game:


 


1. Abolish the forums


 


The internet is a place where any person, with any view, can express any opinion. While the forum users are not abusing this (we have yet to see racist or sexist posts, good job), they do use it to bait, flame, accuse, ridicule, defame and act, generally purile, to other users (and especially to the staff).


The last thing a new player needs, is to read the low quality tripe, sarcastic, wailing insults thrown at users. Even more so, at the staff. This reflects the world's currently largest problem, self-entitlement ("I pay, therefore I can do what I want").


 


Please see:

2. If you don't like it, leave.


 


90% of wurm players, play. They don't post, they don't sob, they don't grief. There is no hostage situation.


Simply put, if you cannot handle the fact that a world exists beyond yours,  that others appreciate playing the game to the vision of it's creator and staff (who, by the way, can do what they want. Please remember that no one is telling you how to paint your painting, and cook your food.)  - you need to get out. From day 1, it was created from a plan, a dream and a vision, it works for most of us. A small amount of users on a forum, where the quality of comments do nothing but disclose the [age, anger, disrespect, social-status, insert other personal problems here] , it simply cannot be taken seriously.


 


3. If you like it, stand up for it.


 


It appears that the majority of players we meet on the ground (only have experience on Chaos, Independence and Deliverance) are fantastic, open-minded and respecting players. They do not get involved in pointless dramas, unless these dramas are inside a role-play perspective, which is healthy. They do not make demands, sarcastic retorts or close-to-sadist/psychpath type posts. They do, however, no stand up for things. Instead, some leave for long periods, get discouraged by the quality of the forum contents and the general bickering of players. This suggestion is to staff again, deal with the problem makers, deal with the defamers, protect the image of the game. There is a difference between freedom of opinion, and trolling/accusations and assaults on developers and staff.


 


4. Not everything needs a 'stupid button'


 


We have played for years, we did it the hard way. We got to our 80's and 90's by right clicking continue a million times. We did not have 'IARELAZU interfaces'. These additions are fantastic, but everytime a lazy player wants to accomplish what we all accomplished, they give up (which we did not) and start insulting, demanding posts. Developers then add features. This is followed by more crying, fonts too small, timers too long, moon too bright. The game has come a long way, without these things, and even longer with them, keep it coming.


 


5. To the good folks


 


Keep posting, keep playing. There are some awesome ones out there. The writers of this post (apart from one, who insists that he hates everyone equally) really love you guys. 1 of us made a huge mistake in misjudging a few of you, then sailing past your settlements, having a chat in local, realised that not everyone who appears as a self-centered egobat, are in fact one. Out with the bad, in with the good. Ignore the posts, or value them lowly, of the users who continuously find it in themselves to complain and batter. This is a reflection of their real lives, and a) we should either support them in their hardships or B) not pay any attention to them.


 


6. To the staff


 


We play this, because we love what it is. We do not sign up and start playing for the sole-purpose of attempting to derail and change the game, that has worked as it is, and give us what we want. It's a simple equation. If it was in fact the way the trolls are saying, we'd not be playing at all. We are playing, because it is what we want.


 


7. New players


 


It's awesome, suggestion to you guys: Stick it out, work hard, join the good fight, the good guys, the great settlements, or found your own. You will either find that this is exactly what you've been looking for, or not at all. If not, run, don't come back, don't post angry, self-centric little wails on the forums, just go. If it is, we're with you. Wurmpedia it out, ask it out, play it hard. All those fails, and injuries on the steep slopes, all those attacks by failed tamed animals, all worth it.

Grow a pair, OP. If you're going to tell unhappy customers to leave because there's no room for them amongst the fanboys, at least do it with your real account.

Translation:


 


The world is made of of only two types of people. Good people, and bad people. 


Good people go to heaven. Bad people go to hell. 


Good people work hard and push buttons. Bad people are lazy and are probably dirty too.


We like good people. We don't like bad people.


Not often, but on rare occasions, we have made a mistake in who is good or bad. We are not so narrowminded as to not admit we can make a mistake! 


Good people can stay but bad people should go away. This goes for our town and our country too.  


Since we are the good people, that increases the odds that if you are reading this, you are one of the bad people (because they always outnumber the good people). 


Remember, you can only be one -- Good, or Bad.


Which will you choose?

my in game name is doctorpepper


 


on blacklight the biggest trouble with freedom servers vs epic bl is in bl everyone CAN kill you but the thing is if your nice to others and try to be curtious people will help you and the jerks usually get tired of killing you the good is ill be there to help guide you the bad is the starter city is dead and almost no one is there I dont share in the hide behind a sea of trees and dont build anything or the enemy may find you the ugly is you will die over and over and over i personally built two gaurd towers and can tell you almost everyone fought me on everything i made and built even took over. If somone says dont build there if you dont want to buy a deed hen you need to respect everyone even the newbies because being mean to one that may seem like a newb has friends that can make your life hell.


 


in short stick it out be nice to all or stay on freedom you dont have to be premium but it helps

Do you even read your own stuff? Probably not cuz most people who go off the deep end don't bother. 

 

1) How the hell you gonna get on a soap box unless you have a crowd? lmao

2) If YOU don't like it leave.

3) How the hell you gonna stand up for it without a forum to say you like it?

4) Obviously you stole the stupid button for your very own.

5) How the hell they gonna keep posting if you took away the forums?

6) The staff has better things to do than read stuff by someone who stole the stupid button, used it to post stuff that's completely contradictory and then pat themselves on the back for being so...well, you got the button, that says it all.
