Expierences playing Wurm Unlimited

Recommended Posts

A  little over a year ago I bought Wurm and joined some friends on a server called Redneck Solutions, we had fun in the beginning learning the game, crafting, competition and comraderie all in one, I looked forward to playing.  Then it turned kinddah ugly, you find out on private servers thaty the people who have the server have clicks and they can pretty much do whatever they want, like spawning  15 Nogumps and a gazillion trolls around your property  because they want your group to go away...so we did..(And we all did the happy dance when they imploded and disappearred)    to move on......So then you get your own server and it is a headache, especially PVE and dealing with new folks and keeping everything friendly.....in lies an oxymoron....friendly game.......well I come and go at this quite steady, really feeling underappreciated for dealing with new people and it is a struggle to have an independent open to the public server and cover all bases.  Finally this chapter closes,  alittle under duress and some friendships may never be the same. part of the group stayed with Redneck, but the majority left, some went on to the new map in the PVE  after a bigh ole fat wipe, and some moved on.....So now we try server hopping, man there are alot out there that have good and bad points, same with some of the people. Tamureil, Mythmoor, Skotopolis, Highborne, and a few other I am sure I lost count...Its almost like feast or famine with this game.  Finally settle into Fields of Conquest PVP, play for a while meet some folks, but never a steady stream, never the same....always feel like your just playing to beat boredom......so maybe to go try something new....Well if you are a noob, do not go to a very active PVP server, more lessons learned over the next couple of days.....then I think did I really buy into this to be this frustrated.....I mean the level of tedium in the game is fierce even on the modded servers, and thats another thing, this server has this mod and that one has this and generally there is no where to find out and the maps are all different  does anyone have a link?, It is completely maddening and its not fun anymore....well I guess some people were right PVE is to quiet and PVP if its an active server might not be your cup of tea, for there are surely days when you feel like you have been jumped by the mob. All in all it was great and it was depressing at times...I just can not find a happy medium  I guess....any suggestions? there are aspects of the game I like but there are some that are not so nice....

Play Wurm Online instead. You'd make long lasting friendships, and meeting your goals will actually feel like accomplishments:3

I played about 100 hours of WU on my own server before I headed to WO, I enjoyed it and wanted to play with other people, but the thought of playing on someone else's private server just seemed like a bad idea to me, seeing the case with the other 150 survival sandbox games on steam.

I feel like I found a hidden gem. The perfect blend between a PvP server and a PvE server. I never played on Chaos for the few years that I played EPIC on Serenity(RIP), but from what I understand, this private server is set up with a lot of similarities to Chaos. And the server is solid and takes the proper steps to ensure a "wipe" doesn't happen. I resisted WU for a long time because of the same fears of being at someone else's mercy because it would be THEIR server. But when you find a solid group with a solid plan, the thing that happens is that magic that we've all experienced in Wurm before. Not pay to win, no mods, no chests full of tools that make specialising in skills obsolete. Honestly, I don't even want to say which server publically. If you're interested, contact me. And if you are willing to follow Wheaton's rule, you'll be welcomed with open arms!
