    Every weeks i see a post who a guy say : don't do that, the game will die !
    Oh guys ! Stop to cry before MA start to move. I'm tired to read that all the time.

    In fact, this game is still alive, i started in 2015. Ok some players left the game since but other players took the free place.
    I read all time the game will die after each major change, but as i see, majority of players are still here and i see new faces all time. I would not stay in a game if i have to play like i was in 2003 or 2010 XD

    You want all a better game experience, better loots etc ... The game is not perfect, ok i can admit that but with post like that, i'm pretty sure, plenty potential players leaved or never started the EU experience and that deserve not only the game but all of us.

    So stop EU bashing please.

    Thanks
    Would not really call it bashing.
    The Cryengine was a good move at that time, Gamebryo was too old and limited.
    A lot of people did not have the hardware then to run it halfway decent and alot of people will probably not half the hardware if another update like that comes. A lot (really really lot...there where around 1 Million registrations in 2008) left after the update.
    What most are afraid of is that their hardware will not handle it and if I read that a laptop can not handle it even now properly....

    kind of funny/sad....spent a few hundred bucks each month to play and can not afford some proper hardware because of spending a few hundred bucks each months for playing ?


    Aslo swiching to another engine would be a really bad idead, it took them years to have eveyrthing back in what we had before the switch and they are using only a fraction of what the current engine could produce. There is simply no budget to make it look better, not enough users losing enough.
    No "Second Life" hype to draw new users in masses.
    A gazillion of MMOs which are free to play and do not costs an arm and a leg each month (unless you considers those big "microtransactions).

    Entropia is a niche for some very special people, there are not that many on this world that are willing to pay the time and costs for it. It is not something that can attract tens of millions, maybe only 5 million and of those we have probably lost already 4 because of the changes in the past 16 years. It is something for the better monetary funded people, not really rich, but able to spend some 100 bucks each month.
    One can surely play it for free, if one does not work and have a family and no ambition at all to get <enter next archievement> .
    Besides that, the higher you get the more you have to either invest or do smart trades.



    So, nope...see no bashing....just the fear of losing it all.
    And personally...I ended up here because I really got sick of all those game servers closing down...had two-three subscription running on so many MMOs and then suddenly they were gone..after years of dedication.
    nope...no drastic changes after the active playerbase reaches something like 50k monthly and not the roughly 5k we have now.

    Says the guy who joined just this forum never mind the game 10 years after me. You where not hear to see the glory days when Entropia was a fantastic universe to be a part of. That was all way before your time. You have not see the major changes that have sunk the game backwards. Your the one overreacting to me just saying I worry that it will happen not that i assume it will. I'm just pointing out that MA should at least be looking at stats of it's users to make sure that they dont change the engine to make the game unplayable for many of it's users.
    Still trying to figure this game out after 14 years.

    It seems you think i'm not legit versus you because i started the game 10 years after you...
    I bet i reach alot more than achievement on the game than you, i bet i spent more ped in hunt/craft/mining than you in less than 4 years than you in 15 years.
    I'm not a forum specialist, i prefer to spend my time on the game than on the forum.

    As i saw since i started the game, MA reduced the cost to play as they stated, MA did a great improvement with that new camera system (some bugs have to be repaired like the HOF/Globals animation), it is alot more easy to hunt and i would be happy to see a huge graphic improvement.

    About low grapgics computers, there is differents graphics option, low up to very high... MA did alot improvments and now you can configure the game,there is alot more options that you can interact yourself, you can make the game unique for you.

    I don't care what happenned 15 years ago. I care only what the futur will see me, i'm always excited to see improvements. When i see screenshots from the game at star, omg this is horrible, don't tell me that was a fantastic universe !
    This is the main problem with old "players", you are stuck in the past. I'm from the new generation, i'm not alone, and for us, the game is more better since we started to play.

    I agree, but i think MA is not stupid and they know that. But at a moment, they can't give 100% satisfaction. This is impossible. I prefer to see a move from MA and lose some account than to not see anything new.

    Unfortunally thats true, im one of those that if i dont find and better hardware from the computer shop trash to switch to i dont bother to buy an hardware improvement, but when u have tons of people that do not have 500dollars to upgrade theyre computer but are ready to deposit 10times that over a shop or a ship it means that they are goin in the right direction.

    Game doesnt even express full graphic potential of cryengine 2 yet, a playground of this dimension is almost impossible to be done very quick. Tho they never stopped updating and people feel more and more confident = prices of goods keep increasing, new people entering business, people are finally understanding how to play this game = competition even for the old immortals from gamebryo. I dont want to make names, but newcomers are there, builded themself depositing and some are getting out of theyre egg after years of freeplaying.

    new version of engines are usually development compatible with older versions, we could have already switched to a new engine and we dont notice the difference.

    Was a niche not anymore, im the living proof that u dont need to be irl rich to obtain notable achievements (land area). It is true that the higher u get the harder it becomes, like every mmo, but in here it still worth doin it.

    We all have fears, but if u let fear drive ur actions u will not live. U should revisit active player count, because its way higher than that.

    lets not update the serious old game engine to the latest edition because the old age pensioner playing the game has an old potato and doesn't want to spend $400 dollars on a new pc even though they probably spends $1k's a year paying to play the game!

    You wont boost a fricken games player base using decade old game engines. You must keep with the times!

    I would probably return as a regular player if the engine and graphics were not so outdated.

    I will write what I wrote on the website, as I am not sure if the person who owns the site approves his comments to public:

    I hate to say it, but these are very typical question that have been constantly asked for over the years by many interviewers with basically the same responses. Although its good to see MindArk doing up to date press interviews, For someone who has played Entropia since basically the start, this is not new information.

    As an old Entropia player I recommend Entropia Universe itself, virtual tycoon Is no good, you cant even split or join stacks, and really only designed for crafting.

    And for the link that leads to the VU16 graphics update, right click is still needed to get out of vehicles and to pick up vehicles, right click has not gone away, if anything they just removed how easy right click was to get to, and its ability to access absolutely everything in a few clicks, there has been a number of improvements in the update, targeting is one of them, but its still a new released update and still need to developed further.

    Actually this would be one of the worse moves for Entropia, if you keep changing the game engine every few years to keep a few people happy, where is the time for updating the actual game play?

    Why push for a graphical update when many elements of the game play are still lacking, like an actual point to taming animals for example.

    There are many older less graphical games that are still played today based on their great game play alone. No one wants a pretty looking game with no content, or half completed content.

    hmmm...are you talking about Anthem ?

    and talking about taming...how long did it take till it was back in...four years ?


    They could probably get the graphics in a new engine (helll..we still have a lot of textures from the old one ) , maybe even use most of the extras they developed, but I would see absolutely no reason for it. New engine does not improve anything visually, unless you do the upgrades to the visuals, which would require developers for it which MA does not have.
    The Content on Calypso is almost non existent....there is some storyline now and then but nothing a noob would start end at a certain point. We have mission from which most do not have to do anything with the storyline but are just a grind whit a small sweetener at the end as reward (from which I am really not sure, if I pay for the reward along the way...when I start a 10k Mission it seems my return rate goes way down).

    For me it has nothing to do with not having the right equipment at home...it is enough to play anything at 1080p in ultra and I do not need more.
    Some may call the old timers in EU "old farts", which I find very unrespectfull, because they paid enough for still having EU alive and kicking today. Even if their Computers can not handle the full glory, they are the ones paying the most.not the one to three that spen 500K Peds to get to the top in 5 years, but the roughly 1000 that have spent around 100K Peds the past 10 years and especiall the really few dozens that have broken way more than a million and keep doing it, because they just do not care about the money and see EU as a way to wind down from work...few clicks on explosive projectiles can give a Vegas kick without the flight

    nope...EU needs a solid fundation of players and changes that endanger the existing one is a way to bancruptcy (which Ma also has experience with). We need "highrollers" that stay not a few thousand "spent 1k Ped, was nice looking but boring and told all my friend to stay away".



    Maybe it all went wrong when Planet Michale did not take off ?!
