    I'm not sure I even grasp the concept correctly... I think the idea is providing a hub from where you can start your games and chat with other people etc (basically the original idea of VR as seen e.g. in Futurama), so basically a VR Steam or whatever. not sure though how people are supposed to work in it though

    and again... why why WHY didn't you partner up with Second Life...!!!

    best case scenario really is Zuckerberg or Buffet or some other rich asshole buying out the entire scheme on a hunch... but currently that's a grasp, really

    Entropia Universe and MindArk are tuned to the pulse of the real economy

    The poowers that be are wanting revolts and MA is in bed with them obviously. Watch as people sell their stuff and stop playing all together. This game used to be fun. Now, there will be jobs to monitor what people are saying.

    Why this will never happen!

    #1
    Every new player counts to thousandths of PEC, even a 1 PEC transport fee is 1000 times to much, when they play as they struggle to never deposit in attempt to make money by playing a game. To get going to generate any revenue will require them to deposit to buy ship, oil, or pay tp costs otherwise to play. That goes against 98% of every new players will to play and all new players will quit even faster then they already do. Instead of a 10% retention rate of new players this action to be placed on teleporters or to get around would take that down to below 1% retention rate of new players.

    #2
    This action would F**K over LA owners even more if fee is placed on teleporters they already struggle getting people to their land areas via very giving events and they payed thousand usd to put a easy to access teleporter on there LA. That would be just a kick in the groin by MA if they ever did place such a tax on every teleporter.

    #3
    This would destroy what little business that still exists for shops in the game. Plan and simple, especially for out reaching shops. Apartments might as well just be removed from game no-one would ever use their own apartment because they have to pay to go there and then pay to get out.

    #4
    Monria, FOMA, and Crystal Palace may as well be removed from game if this happens, you are absolutely forced to take multiple teleporter trips just for dieing hunting hard as hell mobs. They already struggle the way it is adding this would mean no-one goes there period.

    #5
    To counter all the ill effect by adding a teleporter fee MA would have to allow option for LA owners to pay for all their TP access charges as incentive to get people to come to their LA's. Same goes for Mall and City owners. If they start to give these people the ability to bypass the tp fee what is stopping a PP to say they will pay for all TP fee's. Lets face it if Toulan would do this simple thing and no other planet did all of Calypso's economy would migrate over there as people would hang out there just not to pay TP fees. Other PP's would follow suit just to compete and then walla we are back to no TP fees again.

    This whole concept is half baked, not thought through and just dumb the way it is currently stated.

    Don't get me wrong it would be cool to see more vehicle traveling it would increase oil market value and Mind Essence markup value but I seriously think whole plan will never take effect.

    ofc ND has the ability to make his planet this way as he owns the rights to do so on his planet, but he does not have the right or the pull to enforce MA to make this happen to every PP that invested heavy and are trying to make their planets grow, and MA is in this to make themselves money and this simple addition they would force them to loose cash big time, not increase their revenue in anyway.


    No need for anyone to get bent out of shape about any of this. The only place this will ever come to fruit and pass is on RT, why do I say will come to pass, as ND will soon see how horrible the idea is when his 30 loyal RT players become his only players period, if they actually decide to stay.

    I know what jobs ND will build:

    the EU SS corps !

    If you donīt do what he wants you get locked out, and lose everything you have.

    Doesnīt need a concentration camp, just log them out to steal their goods and donīt let them in again!

    Welcome to brave new world
