The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Player X]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
I have played at WoT for a very long time. I love the place. The atmosphere is rich, and the people are friendly. Numbers have dropped over the years yet we are still in the top 10 MUDS. Nowadays, I understand that's not really that huge of an accomplishment.
Back in 'the glory days', there would be 200 people online at any given time, split between the 3 races. Now, we're happy to get around 50.
In my personal opinion, I blame one person: Vivienne. She is a staff member at WoT and, simply because she has outlasted every other Immortal, has claimed carte blanche on the Wheel of Time, and will 'do as she sees fit.' An unfortunate direct quote. I can't tell you one person on the game who actually likes her, but if anybody speaks out against her, you are threatened with a site ban or we're told, 'Well, we don't have to run the game at all... you don't -have- to have a game to play.'
Absolute tyranny at its finest. I listed my name as Player X because if I were to be found out, I'm sure I'd be banned.
The game is awesome. As far as MUDS go, WoT is seriously THE (one of the) best. Quests, clans, helpful playerbase... I've been here 14 years and it's the only MUD I've cared to ever play, or will play. The others are just silly or too challenging, imo. If you can look past a tyrant at the helm, then this is the place for you. (It's really not that hard to just ignore her, she's ludicrous and power hungry, if you're just playing as a casual player, you may never notice her.)
