Originally posted by WonderweissM Me and my gf are going to start playing this game today, and we were curious if we would be at a big disadvantage if we did not pay for the game. Also, is the game have a big enough population to have fun interacting with people? Thanks.
Wurm is F2P in the sense that you can try it for free and that there is no box to buy. There is however a skill cap for people playing for free. Sooner or later you need to buy "premium time" to advance beyond this skill cap, it's cheap (€10 for 2 months). Technically you could just play forever with the skill cap in place - but you will not want it.
What's big for you? Amount of people doesn't really contribute to anything in Wurm, quality of your neighbours in the game world is much more important. Wurm isn't a big game by any means: at prime times (European or North-American evening hours) we have roughly 800 people online.

I find that hard to believe. Did you update/install Java? Wurm runs on Java, just like Minecraft.
