    Post Crystal Palace 2018

    Hello fellow Entropians, I am writing to inform people about Crystal Palace and it's evolution this year.

    In the beginning of 2018 I had been thinking about the idea to sell Crystal Palace. It has been a great honor and it has been very exciting, fun and rewarding to have owned it all these years. But it was on my mind that perhaps I needed to move on from CP, as owning such a large investment didn't make as much sense anymore for me due to real life issues. And also for the fact that I haven't had much time for EU as I did in the past. After having kids it has been difficult to find the time anymore as I once did. And so CP has suffered somewhat do to this. I also knew that selling would be a difficult thing to do since it is such a large investment for anyone take on. And so I asked a few old friends who might be interested and that have had significant investments over the years. They were interested but passed as they didn't have enough resources to take it on by themselves. At this time I was hesitant to fully acknowledge the fact that it would be in my best interest to sell. And so I was not ready to make it public or post about it on the forums yet that I wanted to sell. So I instead I decided to just keep on going as I had been and wait.

    Some months later I was in negotiations about a private sale. Due to unforeseen circumstances things fell through. We have moved on since.

    In this process it was discovered that there was no terminal in order to claim the deeds on CP as this was a bug and overlooked from the start and not known about until now. Being the current owner I felt very upset that there were no terminals as with every other Land Area or Estate ingame have. And this is something I would like to see fixed.

    I was very bummed about at all of this time wasted and effort that had gone into this deal. And the result of this whole experience from my perspective is that now it will be even more difficult for me to sell CP in the future. How would I be able to sell it, as it is a large investment for any single person? I was now planning to potentially post about selling Crystal Palace on the forums and go from there. First I would try to get confirmation from MA that they would be able to add the Terminals in the future.

    And so... I contacted MA again in order to see if they will be able to add the terminal to CP. Just to have that done I think would be a step in the right direction and one less hurdle to deal with. I asked Mindark again about this issue and what can be done. After these discussions they suggested to me the idea to turn Crystal Palace into a Deed sale.

    I felt very optimistic about this new idea! A new evolution for CP. It was not only a great solution to selling CP as I had been thinking about all year... But it really felt like a win-win situation. This would give many players, hunters, and investors the opportunity to own a part of Crystal Palace! I love the idea of that. The future of CP could be great. Having large amounts of people who invest in it would mean more would want it to be successful. This could bring new opportunities for events or other exciting things that could happen in the future. And all of these positive things would increase the revenue for all of the future deed holders.

    Mindark would be taking care of the deeds, sale and everything they need to do in order to implement and make this a reality. They have valued CP and they will share the sale revenue in order to accommodate this change and costs associated with such an endeavor. After the announcement many people have been asking me for more infomation about it. I hope MA will be able to give some more details for all those who had questions about it all in the near future.

    Near the end of the year MA put out a press release about it: http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...SALE-Gamasutra

    I have been a player in Entropia for 16+ years now. Everyone who has known me in this time knows I have always been kind, respectable, honest, and a trustworthy person. I have always tried to be a good person because I don't like to deal with all the drama and hassles that come with negativity and all of its forms. I have written this post in order to prevent as many misunderstandings as possible. And so everyone can see my side of things, my motivations, and to update everyone about how Crystal Palace has come about its Evolution in 2018!

    I see a bright future ahead for Crystal Palace. I am optimistic that 2019 and Beyond will be a good step forward for CP and all of the future deed owners!

    Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

    Having met you Buzz and known you ingame for pretty much all of 16 years, I can honestly say that there is no one who embodies Entropia more than you m8. Losing the auction of Crystal Palace didnít sting as much knowing it was in good hands. Thanks for the outpouring of honesty as always.

    Happy Holidays and Best of Luck with the sale!

    A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.

    I appreciate the backstory to this Buzz, I'm sure it came as a surprise to many to have News Bot rather than Bertha Bot reporting about this sale.
