Also quite telling that was all you had to comment on my post. You obviously don't get what people are trying to tell you, mind already made up I suppose. Or just pretty darn ignorant. Hopefully others who read this thread will learn something from it though.
The more players deposit and play, the more hofs and aths come into play.
If this amount of players is dropping every year, we can assume the amount of hofs and aths also change.
I don't know how many people play every day, it's hard to get statistics and Mind Ark really doesn't want to tell us.
But I do notice that the amount of pages on the calypso auction house has dropped a lot these past 3 years.
If you mean "rare items", then yes, the ultra rare drops are very hard to come by. Hunting is your main profession, and it is the most popular profession by far. To get these "rare items" you have to compete with the entirety of the universe, many players of which are cycling 3,4, or even 50 times faster than you on a daily basis.
This game does not owe you 500k PED. When you hunt without a profitable strategy, you are simply donating money to the loot pool/Mindark in exchange for skill gains. Some people will get lucky with no strategy, every casino has to have a few winners But by no means should you expect that to be you.
If it makes you feel any better, I've been playing (on and off) for 13 years, and my only "rare" loot was Supremacy Shins M back in ~2006.
Another quick tip is not to hunt iron mission mobs like Rextellum. They are too popular, so the "rare item pool" tends to be completely saturated 24/7. If your goal is rare drops, hunt some unique mobs! Try a planet that's not Calypso.
As far as 5k/25k ped loots go, as I mentioned before, you need to increase the size of your mob, or use larger mining amps.
If you want to break even or profit, markup is the only reliable way.

Rumors say that this chip was used by MOFUlogist Dan Dan Petrov during his specialisation in WTFlogy..
And I don't visit entropia tracker (not a website btw, I assume you mean Entropia Life) very often. But since you give me this credit, I looked up your profile.. and would say you have very little reason to comment in this thread.

See what happens golddude when you make nasty bitchy posts.
You get shot down in flames & end up looking a fool.
If you were generally nicer you would get nicer responses - its called Karma
OP is right. comon
Anyone of you remember when you could hope for a 20k loot on atrox? and this with many globs to let you hunt for a while?
remember when you could mine unamped and hope (with real chances!) for a big claim to get back your losses when you amped? which were ofc not awful compared to nowadays.
big loots disapeared, globs are very rarer or lower.
yes loot is certainly "almost or exactly" the same as before, if you take a 10 billions sample.
i've never changed my way of depositing and playing, or only a few times.
when i could play for a week with a bit of luck with 50-100$, now i can play 1-3 hours.
many will say that its not a problem, that OP and me are the real pb. You may be right, but why? because many players left, and you are the few ones that are still there, enjoying somth i can't understand.
looking for 1 year or more loot samples isnt a game its a job
and this game in its actual form is gonna die, just because the people surviving with their trackers of 1000000000000 samples are only surviving thanks to players like me (before, now im not really playing much) who are losing much. and this playerbase wont renew forever.
its like poker. do you think online poker can die? hell no it can't. why? because players are losing and winning, they never "work" poker, except pro players, which are not the majority.
So what? playerbase renew. ever and ever. Always new winners, new loosers, etc.
and loosers come back. because they can try to be better, AND have fun.
Being better on EU is becoming a worker. You just have to look at the advices posts to understand that. its not even a matter of intellingence or skill. You have to track everything and work on your Excell everyday. There isnt fun at becoming better at EU, and you can't expect anything good without doing it. so...
"this game in its actual form is gonna die"
its a matter of time

I have invested a lot of thought and time into the game, but hey, why shouldn't anyone else have the exact same knowledge as me for fuck all effort?
Yeah, you're right, it's bullshit
No offence but looking at your tracker, it seems that I have 4 times more experience than you in activity in the game, separated in 3 different activities while you only did 1 in 11 years.
looking at what you say, you either have a trade activity or bought some shares that let your very low turnover playstyle sustain.
Even if its not the case, I talked about renewability.I may look as a fake prophet to your eyes, but fact is that if you don't deposit, than you need to know that you are depending on a few ones that do.
do you think merchants, traders, investors, and excell lovers will help you sustain?
if you can answer this question, then you know this game has a end. I never told when, I just told its a matter of time, when other games won't die.
the worst is that EU could be like these games.
