is any of that a solution to keep everybody happy?

Yes. Keep aesthetics. There is literally no one upset about the lack of clown cosmetics in any MMO. Except cash shop users in some games, which is not the case here.

Just because NCSoft and Call of Duty can pull this off it doesn't mean clown cosmetics is a meta for making money appliable to just any situation. In it's situation it's actually detrimental.

A cashop isn't necessarily all evil. Just like pay for silver thing in Wurm or EVE is actually helpful I think.

 

I'll give you one example of when me and a friend wanted to buy clown cosmetics off LotRO store: we wanted to get bare chested dwarf cosmetics to troll roleplayers on our roleplay server. I have some immersion breaking ideas for Wurm as well... : > Don't test me, lol. I can turn this game in a circus (with what is already available).

With the existing need for player interaction.. you'll maybe make 2 or 50 alts laugh.. other 48 will be afk/asleep waiting on their beep mark to go queue 1 action.. and go back to afk

I dare you... entertain people, we're here to have fun anyway.

By the way.. are there any news about meditation rework, currently it's in far worse state than ever before.. while before it allowed to start using sb only last few seconds for rng result and wait 5 times 30min.. then switch to 3h delays.. and try one's "luck" each time.. now it costs 2minutes of sleep bonus and a bit over that.. for the same gamble.. it's a far bigger investment lottery and outcomes are just as random, often no skill-gain at all for 2minutes of sleep bonus wasted per try.

 

Not sure what is going on in your case, but I always switch SB only for last few seconds (and hope for a tick). I didn't notice any change in behavior for last months and never used SB for whole meditation time.

We can have good cosmetics and wurm can make money. These 2 things aren't mutually exclusive.

 

We just need better skins instead of immersion breaking things.

there was a dev comment somethere, and seemed like it's news to devs that players only turn on sb for last ~3 seconds.. and then turn it off, I was left with impression last patch changing something around meditation changed also this to require 2full minutes, and only work with sb if the sb was turned on before starting the action, can't find the patch notes

so you didn't even test it out ingame to see if the prophecies in your dream were true before writing a paragraph on the forums? truly amazing

similar was the impression left around coffee changes and no idea who's post anymore about meditation.. and requirement to burn 2min full sb.. to get a gain etc.. there were a lot of comments, suggestions etc..

 

not my job to track any of that, and not all changes get into patchnotes, one of significantly game-breaking changes was tinkering with a fix to decay, which currently does more harm than good ondeed, but nobody notices, nobody cares and that will go for another 4-8months probably when people realize things have decayed; what did or didn't change around meditation and coffee breakup who knows.. you don't see me waving a gm/qa/dev tag do you, don't know why you sarcastically suggest I need to test anything, it's not my job

FWIW - I've been turning it on with 10s remaining and have not had a single problem.
