I know that, I was specifically referring to the server hosts

I have a lot more faith in an already 14(?) year old game with a dedicated niche audience and consistent funding from said players continuing to persist over a long time than I do some random community server

It kept sending me emails on that but I kept thinking "I don't have three years to slowly build shit right now"

Enjoyed the times we spend on WU but I don't know that I want to go and do it all again on a server setup with even more soul crushing grind.

Games like this benefit from the ability to start as something other than a weak, unskilled idiot. I would be up for joining something like this if I could start it at "Doesn't need to spend several hours grinding basic shit" levels, but as it stands I really don't want to spend several hours grinding just to get my basic ability to be useful
Like ideally, a game like this would have you start with basic skills and some basic materials, plus a cart or small boat, in a place with friends. Then you can go out together to wherever you decided to settle and actually do it.
Kind like the dorf fort embark doesn't start you with 7 useless shitters. It starts you with some skilled dwarves and items to get you going

It wouldn't be difficult to set that up on a server you ran yourself. Some servers also have starter towns where you can grab some basic items for free from NPCs and start with 10 or so in all skills, or have public ressource nodes/crafting benches etc.

I did play on a server with some friends once, it tends to be that the build-up phase is the most fun and then slowly everyone else starts losing interest and it's downhill from there. I'd like to play Wurm again but as it is I know it's a gigantic time commitment, for me at least, and I would have to pretty much cancel all my other hobbies to play the way I'd want to and I don't think that's healthy.

Periodically I consider going back to WU, but somehow the pitch for Online is just "it's bigger, slower, and less fun but everything is more spread out and unique now because everyone is having less fun"

re: all the complaints about how slow it is, WO has actually introduced a lot of baby brain accessibility features

common mats like planks or stone bricks have a 100% craft chance even on a brand new character now, pendulums can be made with iron, etc etc

don't really agree with anything beyond slower but that's because every WU server cranks the multipliers up wildly high

the steam launch went really shakily but they've fixed it up and there's so many new players they actually made a second PVE map to help with the load; there was 2500 players online at once today which is absolutely massive for wurm. I got a deed put down and I'm excited, it's really cool to be able to actually influence how the map is gonna get shaped so early

I like seeing what people make in this stuff
I've considered going in and making a nice little homestead or something myself but I don't have the time or motivation, so I will watch others do it instead

are the rates reasonable? like x2 or x3?
