VU 10.0 on the horizon, if it's not out already; and apparently NOTHING has changed since the last dozen VUs. Even the same retarded counter arguements come up. Some of these might not have been raised; but I'll cover them anyway.

-Don't expect to profit.

Some people join to profit, some work hard at it, the have a right to expect it. Telling them not to expect it is idiotic; it's the main selling point of this game. Pity it's a LIE.

-Change your playing style.

Again, there's only so much economy you can build into your playing style before it becomes a job; or just maddening. At some point you have to realize no matter what you do MA is a bunch of stinking cheaters and thieves.

-Quit.

This is actually a good suggestion; but I take issue with the motivations behind it. Most people say "then go ahead a quit," because they're self absorbed, indifferent morons. They rather you leave then have to listen to, and recognize the legitimate problem with the game.

-MA is running a business, the need to make money.

They have the economy of a small country at their disposal; don't give me this crud!

You all want MA to change? to be fair? You're gonna have to break some heads to do it. Metaphorically of course; go to courts, get consumer protection laws covering their so called patented "virtual universe" so they can't abuse you anymore.

Oh and for the record the idea that MA "invented" the virtual universe, is such a load of garbage that the judge who allowed the patent to go forward should be thrown out of his position.

If getting up in arms is not your thing, for whatever reason; do what I did. Sink your money in Entropia Investment Fund, and go play something else. Every once in a while, check in, pick up your dividends and give MA the philosophical middle finger they so richly deserve for years of abusing the player base.

Ten thousand bucks and you're thinking about buying a new car AND house?
And I thought the economy here in Detroit was bad... :D

Funny post, though.

Lately I am mostly logging on, seeing a big noob hof and see no point to hunt myself at that day.

Yeah great, thats the spirit :loco:

What is you're point, that you don't get a hof?? If you won't hunt because some "noob" already got a hof you never will get a hof.

Wait... People actually deposit money in this game expect to profit? Why would they do that? Everywhere on this forum you have guides that make it clear that it`s all gambling.

I Don't mean to bring up the whole "EU is gambling" debate again, but if it's that obvious that "it's all gambling"... Why is the minimum age to play this "game" only 13? Here in the U.S. the minimum age to gamble is 18...

It sure seems like gambling to me, but I don't care, I'm old enough :D
But I've always wondered about the minimum age requirements.

Profit is possible so why saying it's a lie? There are enough players profiting.

All I have as for advice is, never expect your peds to last more than 1 hunt however much it is, and you wont be dissapointed.

// Exo

If that is what you expect from a deposit...then why would you deposit?

If you play Entropia like a casino you will easily burn out.

Problem is, even if you play it not like a casino, the mechanics very much act like one.

There are ways to profit and fun ways to do it. Sometimes its not about continually doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You have to be adaptive and you have to know that not every venture will work out. Treat every opportunity whether you win or lose as a learing experience and find out other ways to stretch you PED, it can be fun and rewarding.

Assess your risk - are you playing to risky which is hemorraging your PED card.

Nothing lasts forever - yeah realize EU is in a constant state of evoluation as are the player needs in EU. It takes time and patience and a willingness to perservere through bad times toi take advantage of the better times.

Profit will cycle - yeah its not a constant thing but once you realize it you will know when its a good time to play and when its not. Even I have to do some bopring task based activities to make my PED stretch so I can fully enjoy sopmething like and extended stay at CP or CND which carry more risk.

The things above have gotten me through some rough patches since I started to where I am today. One other thing is these days I really worry less about what others are getting in EU and concentrate more on what I see in my loot and adjust my play based on that. My methods are not a sure fire method but they temper my emotions a bit about EU and make me think more clearly about what I am doing and how I am in control of what I do day to day in EU.

I do take breaks from time to time its a healthy part of any gaming experience no matter the game. Posted via Mobile Device

This is like saying, "Well, we'll let you in to the casino but since you're only 13 you don't have a bank account... but you can gamble with your parent's money" :laugh:

Security would never let a 13 year old into a casino in real life, even if they were accompanied by a parent or guardian.
