    I think EU is mostly relying on old players and their deposits. Once big part of them are gone, they will either have to change the strategy completely or make subscription based version just to keep it functional.

    I think you have a point there. I feel that there are so few new people that can really replace the amount of money the old depositors are bringing.

    For 15 years new players have continually replaced older players leaving. For 15 years people have posted that the sky is falling...

    Well. Mayhem and batsim were correct steps into pushing EU to new frontiers. They have nothing in common with the core concept, yet they integrated very nicely. I do trust MA they will implement more and more options, exactly to bring in elements of MoBA or card games in various game modes which to open up the experience. From this pov, Compet was a good intention (in a shitty direction, but hey, can't win each time).

    If it would stay static, it would surely die. It is not and I am sure it won't become.

    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.
    I second that. Eu has lost a lot of fun factors. The alien dropship is a good example of this. I always had the panic, that some other player hit the button before me. But always it was super fun to get a such ship.

    Nah, as soon as entropia becomes subsciption based it will die.
    Since then it will become like any other MMO.
    And because MA sucks in comparison to any other MMO it will fail.
    Entropia is RCE. Without RCE, no entropia.

    P.S This is purely my opinion
    I must agree, no RCE, no game. I don't think I would want to 20 USD a month just to play, although I have spent way much more than that over the years.

    Speaking of the dropships, it reminded me of those animations they did a year or 2 ago, it seems MA even outlasted the starfinder/pathfinders that streaked across the sky on Caly for a bit.

    While MA has lasted, many of their ideas and work on new "features" has not lasted long at all.

    I doubt EU had been developed to what it is today, if EU didn't have
    the RCE...

    MA should do the same as Blizzard and run another game with old version. Fresh start could bring new players and old retired ones too.
    From Mindark reports 2018 had more net deposits then in 2017. This year reports can show some pattern and if its also positive, then this game will be ok for a while.
    Also as this is real cash economy and players are not protected enought, MA can do whatever they want to bait money or change value of items or other shiit

    Well, it would be interesting to see the results of a virtual time machine, with lots of players from "the future" able to play in "the past".
    Would you play on a clean slate EU and restart an avatar the same as everyone else?

    However, you cannot make players "unknowledgable", so it would all turn out differently anyway, especially the mus, desired items etc. Also, what vu should MA chose anyway, and with or without bug fixes? Should they update that world, or keep it locked without further additions?
    Another LOL thought - is what we have now the best EU ever?

    AND, are there agreements with PPs in place that the platform should not water down the playerbase any further? Reintroducing a new Old Caly would split the existing base quite a bit I suspect, even if some new players were attracted. PPs would not like that - nor would CLD and other deed holders if the 'time travel EU' didn't share the turnover with them.

    Nope, the past should not be revisited if it is "alive" as an RCE, nor should EU compete with previous versions of itself...
