you forgot skilling!
finally a real answer, thankstruantduck said:Well, once you get to a certain skill level, it can be said that one can have fun and profit at the same time.
For example, I hunt formidon naked, and I do quite well with that. Most trips I lose a little bit. Some trips I profit big. Each trip nets me stuff I can sell to help out. For the most part I have fun and profit hunting formidons.
However, when I put on shadow and hunt falx, and I leak ped like a noob in space.
Hunting at the edge of what is possible for your avatar may be more fun that "safe hunting" but not by a whole lot after a while of doing it.
But that's just hunting.
To be honest, I have lots of fun roaming the world, talking and trading, healing and escorting. Watching the markets, situational mining, crafty crafting. I think PE is very fun. It may be a bit more expensive than other games at fist (if you are a frequent player) but after a while it becomes free, and then you can get paid to play.
Well....that may be a little misleading...fresco said:finally a real answer, thanks
i understand that, but method is similar even for a new player - hunt mobs that you can kill w/o armor and use economical gun that fits your level.Azrael said:Well....that may be a little misleading...
Not many people are going to reach the level to which he refers...those that joined right after beta sure...but noobs wont get there for a LONG TIME to come. Just so you dont have unreal expectations.
Me and many others that have played this game for some time actually expected the buyout to happen, however I expected it to be a bit more bidding before it was taken on buyout. I also think that the estate was bought by a creative person that can be able to use it for something positive, both for himself and the other players, which in turn means something good for MindArk.seesor said:i have now been playing a few days, ok i might not make a profit or even break even, but this game is great!! realy frendly people and good fun, I still cant beleave somone payed $100,000 for a bit of VR but good luck to him
i think i will be playing this game for a long time to come
oh NOES! i have lost all!seesor said:But my real question is can you really make real money by playing this game??
Uhm.. Maybe u should have said that u have fought hard for all this stuff and not let ppl think it's easy. I have fought hard to go get my stuff, and my equipment is a bit lame compared to yours. I am still fighting btw, luckily I managed to get a crafting uber about 2 weeks ago, which has boosted my economy some. I will probably waste it shooting hogglos or bots though Anyway, my POINT is, YES u MAY earn money in this game, but u will have to fight hard for it, and have a healthy amount of luck.Nea said:oh NOES! i have lost all!=,(

- hangar and spaceship for travels
- faaabolus flat, decorated with style
