I recognise that last reply - I wrote that in the Wurm forums...

An enjoyable read.
To be open from the outset, I'm a WurmOnline GM and wanted to agree with more or less every point including the negatives - trading does indeed lack a certain polish, and animations are more or less non-existant. Having said that, a new animation system is being brought in as we type, and new character models with visible armour, animations and remakes of all the mobs will be coming in over the course of the next few months. If you run the unstable client with experiemental packs on, and come off the default 'no animations' and you're able to find a hen, you will see the first example of such that was implemented to test the system. Quite a staggering improvement. You can see snippets of what the team has been working on in this thread of the Wurmonline forums.
I also wanted to clarify payment for being a premium member, there are a variety of options, one of which is the 10 Euros for 1 month and 5 silver (the in-game currency) that you mentioned, but if you don't require any silver, you can also purchase 2 months for 10 Euros. Due to paypal charges etc there is not option for anything costing less than 10 Euros.
Hopefully you'll be able to add a postscript about graphics and animations in a few months time!
