So, quite the opposite is true.

Shame it takes 400000 times more mouse clicks and time than it takes intellectual manpower. ;)

I tried giving a review yesterday but the op is probably the one one that reported me as trolling and perhaps got my post removed by the overmoderational lean of this this site when someone writes an opposing view that is in contrast to an origonal post.  In any event, i agree with this sentiment, and in response to the title, the OP's point can be misleading.  

 

I do not consider Wurm as the "BEST" Sandbox, though it can be considered in the top 5.  I'll them and Wurm Sandboxy, because all have their limitations.  Now, how you cut that top 5 is a personal preference, and by that means, it might be your best. but not necessarily to others; especially if one takes into consumer population of other sustained sandbxy titles.

 

I beleive There ARE more immersive mmo sandboxes with greater access to content, game-play breadth and depth, community interaction within a mutable and persistent world, and which requires community dependence across access to far greater character skills and actions; Xyson is one of them, but I'm not playing Xyson now because of the sluggishness of the development team.  As one that has been watching, and at one point played them all, Salem is another that will appear to give the sandboxy genre a run for its money.

 

So, be sure to try Wurm, and try others that are on-track this year http://sandboxer.org/?p=409

 

 

Just be informed.

Best statement about Wurm yet.

 

Wurm is not the BEST SANDBOX GAME EVER!  but it is not the worst.  People who say its graphics are better than Xsyons are wrong.  The biggest difference is the fact that Xsyon has animations and Wurm does not, yet.   Wurm has some features I like, but many others I do not.   Xsyon has some things I like but it has a few I do not. 

I wish more games had half the features these TWO games have, then it would be a better gaming world but until then.  You have 2 real choices, and soon 3, but honestly none of them are the top of the other, it comes down to the players choice.

So much crap, so little quality.

You can set  nearly every action to a bound key using the console menu. I haven't clicked to do dig, mine, etc in a long time.

Yay for 'intellectual manpower'.

Not near every action, but a limited set of actions. So if you say wanted to add a peice of wood to a boat project, you cant bind that, so you would have to click 3x about 1000 times.

Pressing M and waiting for a timer 50 times in a row to dig a 2x2m mine tunnel isn't much better than clicking 150 times. It's still nothing but a huge grind. [mod edit]

 

I mean what's their forum about? It's not "look what I built", "look what I did", "look what alliances we forged and which wars were won", because the things you can build are actually very limited. Every deed has exactly the same stuff on it. And the things you can do, well, you can build said similar stuff. And the wars, well, pvp sucks and it won't change. And Rolf as well as the playerhood of Wurm are unable to adaptate to a dynamic kingdom system that would actually cause something to happen.

 

Instead it's "I reached 99.9999 in cooking!!!! It only took 3 years of clicking and staring at an ugly oven!!" And all the other players [mod edit] go "woah gj!"

http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/63203-increased-to-99/

 

On top of that, [mod edit] I'm surprised that nobody has noticed that Rolf Jansson simply cannot code. Hasn't anybody noticed that just about nothing has happened between the moment Notch left the team and the moment Rolf hired an additional coder?
 

Nothing happened. I think Rolf managed to create crude tools in those 5 years. Or maybe that was the work of the new coder as well. Other than that, all he did was database bullshit like creating useless servers that nobody needed and making speedgain slower or faster. [mod edit]

 

Everything between 2007 was just useless database work and artwork done by volunteers. Notch ditched Rolf because he was tired of being stuck in a team with someone that incompetent and counterproductive. Rolf can't even set up a website without the most primitive security leaks.

 

When asked if Wurm would shut down due to his resigning, Markus said Wurm's not going anywhere.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wurm_Online

 

And it really hasn't gone anywhere since then and it's probably never going to happen. Calling Wurm the best sandbox is just a joke and an insult to Eve Online. Hail Eve Online. The only game on the market with an actual social engine.

 

Btw: I spent some months in Wurm but the community was one of the most childish of all online communities I've experienced. [mod edit]

Best part on EVE is probably its unique feature of grinding by doing nothing (as in waiting, usually paid of course).
Gives you the time to post such pointless and lenghty rants, wtg!

and btw, as long as you don't follow the mainstream and what the "veterans" recommend, it's not that grindy at all. Wurm supports your own ideas, curiosity and creative concepts and that's where the adventure starts in wurm online. First step to heaven in wurm: switch off '/kchat'.

just my 2c from a childish and uneducated but typical wurm player who will celebrate his 57th birthday this year...

I believe my OP states the Best Sandbox Game, NOT, the best..... EVER.  If I were posting about the best EVER, it would be SWG hands down.  But since Star Wars Galaxies was pushed off the market by Lucus, my opinion is that Wurm is the current best sandbox experience.  I have played countless MMO's and I have yet to find a single one that comes close to the sense of ownership and freedom that Wurm provides.  No, Wurm is not the perfect game.  But it stands as the best available sandbox MMO currently running in my opinion.

Yea don't worry. I don't. Although, to say one good thing about Wurm - the subscription fee is fair. Though it sucks that you can't sub for one month only without purchasing 5 silver which are basically worthless because an economy simply doesn't exist.

The economy is definitely not a model configuration, but to say silver isn't worth anything and that the economy doesn't exist is simply not true.  Silver changes hands every day and I have made hundreds of silver selling items.  In addition, I think time spent in Wurm can be an investment.  Good skilled characters can fetch upwards of $500.00.  Yes, people sell characters in Wurm.  Wurm has private merchants that players can buy, place at their home or elsewhere, and load them with items for sale.  There are NPC traders that sell non-crafted items and buy crafted items, although it is difficult to find them with coins to trade because they usually get hit by players as soon as they get more coin through sales.  All in all, the market is totally player driven and while I would like to see some changes, there is definitely a viable economy in Wurm.

Both are bad in that way.  

Wurm-

*logs in Wurm, loads up macro program, sets it to run for 8 hours, goes to bed*

 

Eve-

*Logs into Eve, loads up book reading modules, logs out goes to bed for the night* 

 

Samething different game.   It actually is faster to skill up in Wurm than in Eve, lol.

So much crap, so little quality.

I know there are traders and merchants.

 

And I know that chars sell for that much - but it takes 3 years of grinding first and, 500 USD, no thanks, I'll rather work for a week than grind in Wurm Online for 3 years. Infact, if I had the choice between a week of Wurm and a week of work, I'd rather work. 500 USD are more enjoyable without a completely dead, numb mind and a solid carpal tunnel syndrome.

 

I pointed out why the economy is basically dead in that other thread now. :shrug:

The biggest downfall I find with WURM Online is that it's one of those games once you start, you get never leave, unless you want to start all over again once you return.  I like this game but I need a break from it.

A lot of players take breaks from Wurm just like any other MMO.  Hey, in  NINE DAYS Wurm 1.0 will come out.  A new PVE server is being launched as well that will be isolated from all other servers, which will give that pristine, new feeling to Wurm.  Only new characters will be allowed on that server, so it will truly be a reset of an entire map and players.

If you have ever wanted to try Wurm, 12-12-2012 would be a great time to do so.

And all I can see in the idea of an isolated server (and if you read the Wurm blog, even that is temporary, "for an undetermined amount of time") is Rolf finding a way to get new characters to buy premium and more silver to set up a deed.

There are decent people, but a large part of it seems made up of elitists whose only purpose in the game is to sell things to pay for deed upkeep/more premium.  On Celebration, the most recent server, the server chat sometimes stays silent for over half an hour, and then someone posts something about selling stuff.

I have played them both, and to compare Xysons crafting to Wurms crafting. wurm is just way way better. Yes its a click fest, set up a macro sheesh. Bu the sheer amount you can craft compared to Xyson is crazzy.

You can fricken breed animals how cool is that?

Now Where Xyson excels is the animations and graphics. But honestly thats about as far as it goes.

There are so many abandoned areas in wurm, its fairly easy to set up and normaly find everything you need to get started. Just explore.

While i enjoyed xyson for the few months i spent there the crafting in Wurm is so much better.

If your looking for instant grattification neither of these games is gonna work for you. Both of these games are true sandboxes and you will work your ass off for what you have. There is a great feeling of accomplishment when you can finally craft your first little boat and can go off shore to fish. ( just becareful or the big shark will knock you out of the that little boat.)

Both games now have a free trial so i suggest trying them both fo at least a full week and make up your own mind. dont take it for what everyone has said on here.

played M59,UO,lineage,EQ,Daoc,Entropia,SWG,Horizons,Lineage2.EQ2,Vangaurd,Irth online, DarkFall,Star Trek
and many others that did not make the cut or i just plain forgetting about.

The game has come a long way in the sense of animations since I started playing 3.5 years ago.  There are tons of simple animations in Wurm, even without considering the upcoming changes to characters and the new creature models that have been creeping into the game over the last few months.  Progression and improvement have been consistent and to say that the game has no animation is simply not true.
