    How long do you think MA will survive?

    Nothing lasts forever - this we know. If Rome could fall, then we all can. And if Sparta could fall, then we're pretty much fucked.

    So how long do you think MA can survive? Are we already now seeing the doom of this company? Are we seeing any signs in prices dropping on different items? LA:s loosing worth? There has been a lot of speculations about the CLD's and MA/FPC/whatever (how am I honestly supposed to keep up with the names? huh?) creating a trust fund just in case they need to declare bankruptcy. This, of course, are nothing but speculations - but how serious should we take them?

    One might call this forum a place where a lot of whine exists, but one might also call it a forum where many, many players are very displeased with the game they have dedicated years to and a shitload of money. How long will these players stay loyal to a company they believe have completely fucked them over?

    There are reasons, however, to why we stay, and it's not just because of the money we have invested in our avatar. This game has potential and perhaps MA is working towards it. It's not impossible, however, that MA just takes all the money from CLD and declares bankruptcy, but on the other hand, EU doesn't really have any competition out there but is one of a kind in what it is, thus giving it huge potential with the different planets searching the globe for more idiots like us who'll pay to shoot pixels.

    Personally, I'm not sure what will happen - but I guess none of us are. If I were to guess I'd say that if the different advertisement campaigns from MA and the planet partners were to fail, we would start seeing the end of days for Entropia Universe.

    What do you believe is the future for MA and the planet partners? Are we going to see any planet vanish because of lack of funds? Is MA going to declare bankruptcy within five years? What do you think and why?

    DRUNK PERSPECTIVE. ma will survive, in the long term. they own no planets as of right now and there only istrest is to bring in more players. it doesn't matter what planet. MA will always profit as long as 1 player plays. keep that in mind.

    Also the Planet Cyrene group had said they were prepared to function with a small number of players in the first 6-12 months. Then advertising. Don't worry about doomsday theories, the sky isn't falling, just play and have fun!

    Yes, well, I never started one of them, so this one is special!

    I get your meaning, which is why I am not saying EU is doomed. Of course it would be great if it lasted for decades to come. It is unique, as you so wisely laid it out, and that's the advantage EU has at the moment considering the many seemingly unhappy players.

    Good news! Of course I, too, want the game to hold. I have put down enough money to wish it so, but I am not the only one with these thoughts. Do you believe that all the players complaining about loot and missing game-systems will stay or will they have had enough soon? I see too many names in my friend list I haven't seen on-line in months.

    In my last 6 years player comes and goes and comes back. My friendlist is "more active" than years ago ..and no i deleted most of the unknown after the "freindlist-update"

    And you see only a few ppl. of the universe in the forum, in real life ppl tend to complain but not to tell you they are happy. My loot isn't my best buddy - lol, but i still deposit to have fun and many ppl i know do the same.

    One thing people do wich is wrong is to assume that just because prices are falling EU must be doomed.

    This is wrong, there are several reasons for the prices to fall.

    1. Prices were allowed to go far too high in the first place, this leaves plenty of room for prices to drop even lower, considering the pricing was based on future expectations of prices to rise rather than actual use of the item.

    2. Its harder to break even of profit, when people are having a harder time selling their loot for any mu at all, they are less likely to buy UL gear for high prices.

    3. CLD´s , its become a popular thing to always compare before buying an item the peds you save owning it versus the peds you would gain from a similiar "investment" in CLD´s, this is on paper true , but people are missing an important thing here, ARE WE HERE TO MAKE MONEY, OR ARE WE HERE TO PLAY A GAME AND HAVE FUN?

    try shooting a mob with your CLD´S , and they are really not that good as armor either.

    I have faith in the EU plattform, if you would have asked me 1,5 years ago i would have answered differently, i think its a working model, in some aspects MA needs to be better at communicating what entropia is though.

    Its not a casino, they provide a plattform where you are free to login, you then decide how to interact with the plattform, and the plattform will return you results differently , based on how you choose to interact.

    Im sure EU will still be around in 10 years, for sure it will be a bit different than today, but then again today its not the same game as when i joined 2006, progress and evolution is hard to avoid.

    cheers
