    Developer Notes #2

    This Entropia Universe Buzz article is part of a new series of Developer Notes where the development team at MindArk will share various tips and bits of information about Entropia Universe with our participants. Some Developer Notes will address important issues that we have noticed being discussed on community forums, while others will be prompted by feedback and questions received via support cases. Our goal with the Developer Notes series is to help participants better understand MindArk’s goals for Entropia Universe, and hopefully correct several misconceptions that have arisen within the community that we feel might help participants make more informed decisions for their avatars. We hope that you find the Developer Notes article series interesting and informative.

    Efficiency Matters - One issue that we have noticed being discussed quite frequently on community forums such as PlanetCalypsoForm.com is the concept of efficiency (sometimes referred to as economy), especially with regard to hunting tools such as ranged and melee weapons. A growing number of participants seem to have adopted an approach based on the theory that “economy does not matter”, a theory apparently based on (faulty) field tests or other experiments. We would like to state here very clearly that avatar skills and efficiency on the tools used do indeed matter a great deal, and have a very significant effect on overall returns in all Entropia Universe professions. Any playtest experiments, theorycrafting or other analysis you may be presented with which indicate or suggest that efficiency does not matter are thus flawed either in their conception, data collection, data analysis or conclusions.

    Personal Lootpools - Many of the theories which suggest - inaccurately - that efficiency is unimportant will often employ the concept of a “personal lootpool”, claiming that the “system” will eventually provide a sort of compensation to avatars who have been operating in an inefficient manner. Such theories are very much misguided. There is no such thing as a “personal lootpool” for individual avatars, and there is no system in place which tracks each avatar’s returns over time, or which provides compensation to individual avatars. As a result, long-term results in Entropia Universe are directly related to the choices made by each participant, and those who approach their chosen profession in an efficient manner will find more success than those who do not. Overall this is a very positive thing and an important part of the Entropia virtual universe concept, as it allows those participants who spend the time and effort to approach their activities within Entropia Universe in a smart way to improve their chances of becoming successful, just like in the real world.

    Wonderful, so I cant hope for any kind of compensation for the ~60 K TT loss over the past months, and seems like mining for mu is not "approaching in an efficient manner".

    Peds 'scammed' from me: ~44.000 peds

    This is my tought exactly, will EU ever pay me for some of the 20-25K lost in the last year? Or is that just cost to play, because I haven;t lost it in a unefficient way

    Anyway, a good point would have been the explanation of those big HOFs ar ATH How do they come to us? I always tought that I will get a 20K one after I loose 30K or so, now I don't know....
    ATH is chasing me, but I'm faster!!!

    I have been so convinced that Personal Loot Pools do exist it is almost like learning that black is in fact white or 2 + 2 = 5.

    My entire, completely inefficient, hunting tactics will now have to be reviewed.

    I will struggle now for some considerable time going over the events I saw as 'evidence' that supported Personal Loot Pools in an effort to see them as, I guess, just random hofs or poor loots.

    Great that these type of insights into the Loot System are now being offered though.

    No personal lootpool?

    Oh yeah, right. Absolutely.

    After logging 70k CLAIMS I was just fucking lucky then?

    I'm not whining or something, but that information is fine for newbs. Explain then noob ATHs as "luck", thus, admit that EU is simple gambling.

    9 years I've been playing EU, you still are new. By looking through your posts in other threads and seeing how you attack nearly everyone, I can tell already you won't last long in EU.
