    BAD - Battle Arena Deeds

    MA has announced their plan to introduce 200,000 Battle Arena Deeds in 2015 for 100 PED each for a combined total of 2million US Dollars. Holders of these deeds will get a share of revenue from these arenas.

    This new feature must be a substantial thing if MA thinks they can get 2 million USD for it all. It has potential, especially since they mention that there will be a mobile app specifically for this... So that will turn into a whole new game itself, opening up a whole new mobile market for EU.

    Here is the info:

    Creature Control System Stage 1 - (Planned for June 2014 Release)

    You may already be aware of a new feature introduced not long ago which allows officials and planet partners to control various creatures during special events. This system will be extended to participants in the form of Creature Control Capsules, consumable items that will allow you to transform your avatar into a specific creature for a limited time. This fun feature will be made available exclusively through the loot system, and will be monitored closely to prevent abuse.

    Taming Stage 1 - (Planned for Autumn 2014 Release)

    Some of you will be happy to hear that we plan to (finally) reintroduce Taming to Entropia Universe. In the first stage the core functionality will be quite similar to the original taming system, with added improvements to usability and fun-factor. Initially, pets will be to able accompany your avatar in its Entropia Universe travels, with more pet abilities and features planned for later stages (see below).

    Taming Stage 2 - (Planned for Late 2014 / Early 2015 Release)

    In this stage it is planned to implement additional skill-based taming abilities which will expand the capabilities of tamed creatures beyond the pre-VU10 taming system. In addition, a limited number of stables will be made available that will fulfill various roles within the taming system such as stabling, feeding, expert training, trading and more.

    Creature Control System Stage 2 - (Planned for Winter 2014 Release)

    Through a new Battle Octagon interface, your avatar will be able to control various creatures and challenge other avatars to battle in special CCS octagons. With lots of options for attack and defense customisation, each battle promises to be unique and exciting, especially considering the possibility of creatures and robots from different planets engaging in reckless combat against one another!

    Taming Stage 3 - (Planned for Early 2015 Release)

    Battle Arenas will be introduced which will allow tamed creatures to battle one another. Each battle will be unique, with a wide range of offensive and defensive pet buffs and upgrades along with customisable attack and defense profiles.

    Web-Based Battle Arena - (Planned for Early 2015 Release)

    A web-based Battle Arena game is planned for early 2015. The game will be developed as a cross-platform solution available on the web and for mobile devices, and will have direct ties to the Entropia Universe taming! system. Players will have the opportunity to acquire, upgrade and customise their pets for battle against the pets of others.

    Entropia Universe participants will have the ability to acquire Battle Arena Deeds and share in the revenue and excitement of the Battle Arena action. 200,000 Battle Arena Deeds will be offered via the Entropia Universe in-game auction and upcoming webshop at 100 PED each. Revenues generated from the Battle Arena Deed offering will be used exclusively for Battle Arena development and marketing. More detailed information about the Battle Arena Deeds will be made available very soon.

    They should make them 50PED (5$) and 400 000. If playable via mobile device, there are a lot of people out there spending $5 for joining a game, 10$ not so much. See all the f2p p4w games. If people get hooked thay would want more and turn into the EU game itself. Great approach for the game.

    I'm curious how it'll turn out, it seems there are way too many deeds for such a small player base.

    I can tell that this is a BAD idea. 2 Million USD price tag for this BAD idea is doomed to fail, unless they really make it worthwhile to participate in these battle arenas, like prizes for most wins, tournaments etc (similar to merry mayhem). Because it will get boring after like a month, like anything else that's new. After the hype is gone, they really need to attract and give a reason other than the "fun aspect". For players to waste their money there since its PvP = 0% return.
    I mean just look at planet cyrene, they tried the PvP thingy with the hub and its basically dead.

    They are actually valuing the Arena at $4M USD since only 50% of the revenue goes to the deed older ( I would assume its like the CLD)

    This is something really interesting and seems that will run ingame with a external connection to a website and app.
    Someone made a reference to a pokemon fight, and it could be running the say way.
    Most of us are already used to web based games like the old "Travian" and "hattrick" and it seemed to work great.
    I just hope this app works, and can connect to server unlike the existing Entropia app for android.
