I'd like some feedback from people who fall into a certain range of players: Relatively new to Wurm (having joined withing hte past few months), Free to Play gamers. Whether you played for about an hour or still play to this day, I'd like some feedback on the game.
I tried this out before the major graphic update and the game then was... harsh. It was hard on the eyes, hard on the brain, hard on just about everything. I know the graphics update seems to have helped some of that quite a bit. What I'm not sure about though, is how accessible this game currently is.
Being released in 2006, even if a new server was created, how easy is it for a new player to get into the game and fully appreciate it? How helpful are other players, especially in a PvP environment? How easy-to-understand is the overall basis of the game/crafting?
Things ion this game seemed daunting before. I remember spending hours trying to just figure out what to do and then more hours building a simple fence. That's not something I really want to repeat, even with a graphics overhaul.
And also, how large is the player base? How many premium accounts vs free accounts and so on? I hate logging in to a game and only seeing a dozen people online. That first "M" in MMO stands for Massive, right? From the forum on here, it seems like the game is fairly dead, at the moment anyhow.
Overall, as a new player, just entering for the first time, I'm interested in seeing what other people's opinions/experiences have been so far.
