I only came over here because Gatwick (good friend and neighbor from WO) decided to give Sklo a chance. But he jumped in when the server first started, but when he would come back to WO, he was always inviting. "Come over and check it out, I will make sure you have everything you need to get started, you can even stay at my place while you figure out what to do". One day WO was experiencing a lot of downtime from an update that wasn't right and I finally got over Steam being a horrible place to play games (I was burnt once and so were some friends in the early Steam days) and so I logged in and joined the game. At first I didn't stick around, I logged in got some fighting equipment from Gatwick, then played for a day and logged out for a month or so...then came another bad update with a lot of lag issues on WO and I spent 2 weeks here, then I set a deed and everything was over...Had trouble not logging in everyday...Then when Gatwick retired, i felt i needed to be here to fill in the gap he created from his leaving...But all in all I have stayed because of the adventure and the community. Both are great!
Came here because of Sklo, who I knew from Deliverance days in WO. I remember him being a stable player back then and I wanted a stable server that wouldn't vanish in two weeks. I haven't been let down, not even for a second.
Found on the WO forums. Was sold on it due to the names of the people putting it together (mostly Sklo), as my top priority was to have admins/devs that were highly competent, fair and impartial, and very professional.
After my last server was closed I looked for a new one. This was the server with the fewest mess in the starting zone, so I decided to stay. Doesnt have much time yet, but will be back for sure mid august or september.
This was actually the first server I tried when I started Wurm in 2015 but I was lured in by another server with deed portals. Then I realized that the deed portals actually took a large part of the game away from what Wurm really is.
After running around the highest populated server at the time, Mythmoor Prime, for 2 hrs not finding a place to deed or a friendly "hello" back, I google'd "best Wurm Unlimited server" and Sklotopolis had all these glowing recommendations on the WU forums. It didn't have a good Ping value and didn't have the highest number of players, but the immediate assistance I received (from people like Resa and Elfin) in finding a place to deed was worlds apart from Mythmoor. Not long after settling, an Impalong happened, and I haven't tried another server since.
I just found the server as it had a lot of people online in the launcher window, and was jumping in highly populated PVE servers, looking for a good one for my family to play together on. Turns out this server had just launched Novus the day before which caused the over 250 people on the server(s).
ingame browser. looked it up to see what the server features were. the no upkeep grabbed me. \o/ one less chore in the game. Stayed because the community is unreal level of awesome . some of the things that got me to try it out other then going back to mythmoore ( after a year break). starter horse XD 19strength load all the thing! no upkeep \o/
the load all the things and no upkeep are what made my mind up specificly. the rest is bonus even if there are a couple things I miss from mythmoore XD.
