    How long do you guess MA will survive in current gaming environment

    3.5 - Necroposting
    Pointlessly bumping of dormant, inactive threads causes confusion for other members and visitors who may not notice the original thread post date. A thread is considered inactive if there have been no replies in the last four (4) months.

    Come on Ludvig, don't be silly. It was not pointless. That's a real question! This is a serious question. Look what is happening in world of gaming. Gamers tend to leave MMO style of gaming, it is dying as a gaming genre. People who are familiar with current state of MMO games know what I am talking about. Just search in google "MMO's are dying" and you will find out that massive multiplayer role playing games are going to oblivion. The biggest titles are loosing tons of players, once powerful and populated now become abandoned. WoW, GW2, LOtRO are struggling to get new players.

    Yeah yeah sure but EU is 'different' - it is a 'real money'. But aren't people selling (legally or not) GW2 gold, items etc? Some of them are making nice penny.

    Welcome to new world old men. World of card games, football and basketball card casinos, cyberpunk 2077 and battle royale. There is no room for MMO's anymore, maybe except WoW Classic.

    EU is for sure long living kind of game but it is not eternal. The end will come someday. Keeping in mind all factors, current state of MMO's and new wave of gaming styles, how do you think. When EU servers will be closed?



    I know MA does not like threads like this one and will try to find a way to close it, that is why I post this Immunity Dog which do not allow you to just simply close this discussion

    Damn, he got immunity doge. Nothing anyone can do but let the thread runs

    Jokes aside, I share your sentiment. Every day, almost always the same faces. You get occasional new players asking around, but they don't stay for long once they figure out how much it actually costs you to play decently.

    * Non-existant marketing ("for mature gamers only", seriously???)
    * chat bug (the most basic system in MMO, hello?) that took a very very long time to fix
    * 130 x 26 new hunting missions that are all "Get X points from killing <insert mob here>", more to come when it hits planet partners
    * buggy malls

    It will end when u, me and some some others stop paying. It will also end when more and more deeds are in game and less no-lifers cycling to generate anything for the company.

    I don't see any major threats for this game to stop existing in the next 10 years.
    Without external factors (legality, competition etc) this game will be here for many years to come at least this is what I decided to believe in 2013 when I moved all in after studying fundamentals on their history and how people behave in this environment.

    First off, I agree with the OP that relooking at some threads and posting in them after a long time gap is not 'pointless'. If some readers "may not notice the original thread post date", then move the thread into a section for the living dead, or whatever, give it a different colour to highlight its age, etc, etc, don't just close it please.

    As I think the lifetime of a product is always relevant, more so if tied to an investment which can be withdrawn, I certainly consider this point irrespective of threads on the matter.

    So, will enough people soon stop or slow down to the extent that EU will enter a downward spiral? No, I don't think so, but more and more areas of the game are becoming 'bleached'. I don't think that 'more of the same' will help development. However, 'more of similar' might be ok, if we like the differences. I would quite like to see space development, but there are loads of professions and activities which could also be revived (a bit like a necro thread? ) usefully if MA cared to adjust them.

    I bet if you search "MMO's are prospering" you would get a lot of different results.

    I'm here quite a long time and there where several phases where this kind of threads where launched but atm this Project is still running.

    I think little things would get a lot more fun into Entropia.

    For example why not reinvent the Dropships you could get from mining:



    It was much more exiting than getting only a Global to search the Dropship, kill the Bots to go to the ship and press the Button to get your Reward than a simple 50 ped Lyst Global.

    I bet the code still lies around and could easily be reused.

    Or what about unterwater mining? Why not make it possible once again to mine under water?




    Or the save zone inside PvP was also allways a spot where you had a lot of other players trying to loot something nice



    So I think MA could make it a lot more interresting for their users with very littel changes/additions to the game.
    Dont hunt/mine on taxed LA's it will hurt you in the long run.

    I don't think we are anywhere close to that point. There are still plenty of money ingame for MA to decay, just look how quickly asteroid deeds were sold.

    If I remember correctly MA gonna hire more people for development.
    So if they stick to EU and stop doing odd sideprojects, develop more on a lot of excisting features,
    upgrade graphics and so on they will probably be around for a while.

    Funny, I hear this question for 15 years now.
    Each time the game dies, the sky will fall and we will all do something else tomorrow.

    Nearly 15 years, still counting and still able to log in.

    nuff said.
