    Information from MindArk Balancing Team

    Due to the last days’ speculations regarding the balancing in Entropia Universe, MindArk want to present the following statement:

    MindArk´s vision with Entropia Universe is that all planets are a part of the same universe and follow the same balancing rules. In order for participants and items to move between planets, they have to be balanced with the same system. This is fundamental for the rule system and the market to work.

    No changes have been made nor will be made to these core rules. At the same time, MindArk is continuously monitoring the balance of the system and all planets within the universe. Anomalies are constantly analyzed and adjusted to maintain the balance.

    The market begins with the core rules, but is to a large extent affected by demand. Participants in a supply and demand situation strive towards stability to be able to predict the future, while at the same time it is in the unexpected and not so frequent situations that real opportunities can emerge.

    In the last couple of days, a few rare incidents occurred within an unusually short period of time in conjunction with a release. These incidents have been analyzed in accordance to our routines.

    On rare occasions, items and opportunities can be found letting participants with lower skills to also try out other aspects of the universe not usually available to them. These items should not be considered to be common in any way, nor competing with regular items. Participants investing time and funds into their avatar should be able to see their avatar progress.

    For MindArk, the individual progress is a core part of the universe and the market.

    With this MindArk hope you have a greater understanding of last days’ events and see them in a new light.

    In before the crapstorm

    Wow. MA at least be original and not so darn lazy when it comes to items like this.. You spit in the eyes of the folks again that have been around a while and had paid a fair amount for some of these items because of their rarity..

    Does this mean that because Rocktropia isn't balanced with Mod Faps, Mod Merc, Imp Mk2, Imp Fap and other extremely rare items that it will need to be rebalanced as well, and this goes for all the other planets as well (these so called anomalies as they were which sounds like a joke to me)??? Why would anyone at all have confidence in the price of their items in this universe as of now? How did you determine that ES series scanners in particular were needed to rain down in droves from the heavens.. Why is it that ND knew of this 'rebalancing effort'?

    Would this not pull every single person from Calypso if they were to know that every update for a new planet there would need to be this 'rebalancing' of rare items???

    'These incidents have been analyzed in accordance to our routines.' You guys sounds like robots.. Has MA been taken over by a robot threat! They have been analyzed seems like you are saying you didn't know really what would happen..

    'On rare occasions, items and opportunities can be found letting participants with lower skills to also try out other aspects of the universe not usually available to them. These items should not be considered to be common in any way, nor competing with regular items. Participants investing time and funds into their avatar should be able to see their avatar progress. ' I deleted my comments here as it appears at least this particular sentence was aimed at the new rifle that was looted.. I believe that some of their message in total is still targeted at the looting of ES series scanners and Fap 90's though.



    Why in the heck can't you create items specific to the planet that they are from.. Creativity in items is seriously lacking to the unique 'Worlds' that they should come from. This just screams screwup or maybe at worse incompetence.

    Sad sad sad..

    "If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

    These items should not be considered to be common in any way, nor competing with regular items.
    Huh?!?! If the item in question has a market value, and is tradeable, how is it not competing with regular items?!?

    By the way, how are the new estates on new planets that are on the auction right this minute, which I assume are functional, not unbalancing the estates on Calypso that have not been working at all since the first week of December, and were not working at all for about 4 months after vu 10?!?

    In order for participants and items to move between planets, they have to be balanced with the same system.
    That system might be great, if the system actually existed. For those with taming skills and items related to it, that system is currently non-existent... Taming is considered to be a "system"

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...ghlight=welter
    Work has already started on the “Taming” and “ Mentoring” systems which will be back with a number of added features. Next in line is the “Makeup” and “Beacon “systems and mutants.”
    However, it's not online currently... but... All systems are online is what we are told?


    These nonfunctional estates and missing systems seem like a massive unbalancing that needs to be rebalanced. Are there plans to "balance" this issue as you balanced out the unbalaning in the past when personal revives were repurchased and shopkeepers were given away?

    Found out yesterday Hades Booth owners got FREE shopkeepers on the VU to compensate for the booth bug. Should mean ~20 new shopkeepers in game.

    It has been some rumors about removal of personal revival terminals and I got copy of something interesting here:

    MindArk wrote,
    "We need to inform you about an item in your possession. The management has decided that the personal revival terminals will not again be made operational and therefore we will now buy this item back from you.
    You may choose between the sum of 5000 PED OR a Powerful Resurrection Chip. Please respons to this by sending us a support ticket within the next four weeks and let us know which of these two options you prefer."

    Another AMAZING reply from Mindark
    If the stuff that comes out of my mouth upsets you, just think of all the things I keep to myself.

    Yes, this means we might as well get shadow drops now and then on old and new planets.

    Now, what rare loot did they stuff inside which mob on Calypso, is the interesting question.
