    What can however happen is those guys (they're located in Gothenburg btw) may compete with MA for employees, hence raising MA's labor costs. Said employees will be happy though.
    There are many ways to skin a cat but just one way to boil a frog.

    I do regret Afterworld failing. The core concept was very good, it was a pitty they didn't got any serious investor. While I do understand the "punishing MA" idea (I also shared it years ago when I used to get angry at math), I actually believe that competition would be good, via increasing the market.

    I've heard this sentence since i was introduced to this game 15y ago.

    I have wasted way too much time playing alternatives that promised to add withdrawal. Sooner or later all announced that it will never happen or game simply died. Don't forget that EU was built with huge pile of cash and somehow it has managed to get pass all of the laws related to gambling issues.

    I don't say it will be quaraneed fail, but history shows us that odds for that are way too high

    Few examples:

    AfterWorld - most successful competitor that have existed, but never managed to add withdrawal. Developers killed it with new version since they were lack of resources and never managed to complete new version. Servers are closed

    Project ION- similar to EU. Outdated graphics. Withdrawal was promised, but later on it was announced that it will never happen. Still running, but playerbase and content is basically non-existent

    Planet of Dreams- was promising at the beginning, rather big investments made by me (I still own most uber gear in game). Withdrawal is still working, but project is abandoned. No more updates, lack of content and graphics is non-existent

    Planet of Luck- Created/copied by the same guy as above one. never tried it, withdrawal is working (although i am not sure about it's legality). few player daily average and development is extremely slow (maybe one update per year)

    Aftertime Diaries- Biggest scam so far. Marketing videos and promises were awesome. A lot of cash received from investors, but game never saw daylight. I'd say that it was the closest thing to EU's alpha version


    Of course i hope for the best for this project, but please be careful before investing too much and getting your hopes too high.

    Feels good to hear most of those clones failed although I believe solid competition is good for everyone.
    If I have to choose between competition and long history of a specific business I'd go blindly all in with the long history.
    Good luck to all believers into new projects.I will try it out too who knows on my 2nd monitor while grinding in EU of course.If there are lots of money to be made I will hang around if not ... not

    This looks legit to be honest, they have published their full names and contact info (twitter, facebook, etc..). They seem to be answering all the questions in both reddit and discord, the other failed projects mentioned in this thread were very different (mostly the secrecy of who was behind them). Plus they are part of that game incubator thing so there's some tiny backing already.

    Competition is always good for the customer, I don't know why you guys are so negative and affraid the game isn't even in closed alpha...

    If it fails... whatever, if it succeeds... yay for us. No?

    Well my opinion anyway, gl

    Even though i dont believe this game will be competitive to EU i still highly believe that EU should start advertising much much much more than they do right now. Take for example Gothenurg, the city it comes from. Its 1 million people in that city only like 20 people play it atm. Start advertising first there for start and than ofc globally in every major city. The game needs to expand the other planets are empty and there is so much more space for more players. This will also increase the profits on both sides. New depositers will come and the loot will have even higher MU like in past. Look for example entropia forum 5 years ago it said it had 6000 people online. Nowadays i see like few hundred max. So i really hope they start listening about advertising because it is extremely important if the game wanna expand. I know they will probably have issues with servers and lag in the beginning but everything can be upgraded with the higher profit from newcomer depositers. I started playing this game because it has huge capacity and i dont wanna give up on it but I hope they will exploit it more.

    I don't say it is not legit, but negativity is real since none of the clones has succeeded

    None of these projects were different. Clones of EU and made by previous EU players who either failed big time or thought they can do better. By "better" every single project managed to get playing costs so low, that there was literally no money to provide decent development progress nor server upkeep.

    I really wish that Virtuverse will be something different from previous clones
    take my advice, i dont`t use it anyway!

    They choosed the wrong engine. Torque engine is outdated. PPL today use Unreal engine, or other AAA engines.
    And it was much boring to play that clone.

    Hi guys,

    I made this thread a while back:
    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...ve-competition

    And suddenly this comes up: virtuverse.io



    If these guys dont make same mistakes as MA, we might find the answer to this thread:

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...A-will-survive

    Alpha is coming out this september, but plans for beta is 2021. What do you guys think? Do they have a chance? Will MA start working overtime to finally fix all the broke things in-game and also add new interesting content?

    Time will tell...

    True
    At least, they choosed the right Engine
