    Whats up with the ideas that get half-done or trashed?

    Hi,

    http://content-of-oblivion.blogspot.com/
    Can you comment why many of the ideas in the link above were cancelled, never implemented, or implemented very poorly?

    Thank you.

    There are many aspects of Entropia Universe that we would like to expand or improve. The issue, as for any company or project, is to decide how best to prioritize those improvements among limited resources.

    We feel that it makes sense to focus on improvements that benefit the largest number of participants, which can also be implemented within a reasonable timeframe. One good example of that is the Camera & Control system, which is in the late stages of development and will be released soon.

    We have also been focused more generally on improving client and server stability, and have made lots of progress in this area.

    Rather than discussing plans for specific features or future systems in this AMA, our team believes it is better to save such announcements for times when we are certain that the specific system will be implemented, and we have more concrete info to share, as we did recently with the Camera & Control system.

    Deja vu anyone? Better to just link/quote this post below instead of making another copy and paste tbh. "Please check Henrik|MindArk's response, as I believe it answers your question". The copy and paste response is frowned upon, and most of us if not all of us hate them.

    Thats nice, but WHY start an idea, tell everyone how awesome its going to be (because u need to sell something on auction) and then POOF - nothing or half-assed implementation?
    - Housing (Land plots)
    - Pet System (Stables)
    - Space (Trasport missions etc)

    How can you guys be satisfied with some of these ideas? Do you guys actually have someone that understands gaming? For example, there were so many better ways to implement buffs, but we do it through RINGS???!!! Why couldnt there be some kind of implants into the body instead(foot implant, eye implant, hand etc, depending on the buff type? What is cool about rings? We are playing a sci-fi game... Just a minute of thinking ... but NO, lets make it rings... FFS...

    To me, EU of 2018 is not a better game than EU of 2006. I really dont think its better. 12 years of development just making it worse... EU of 2006 was something different, an interesting sci-fi adventure... since then we only moved in the direction to make it more and more generic (but most generic games last only a few years and then die).

    Yeah, maybe someone should have played Anarchy Online (I played it even befor I did know about EU).

    There you have implants and symbionts, beside a shitload of othere things that make a great SciFi Game.

    Sad thing, if you reached max level in that game, there is nothing more to do, so I quit it.
