    I think this video may have been sponsored by MA. (Disclaimer: I only watched 4-5 minutes of it) If so, that's good to see MA doing a bit of advertising so to speak.

    I saw another video recently with the same creator, and in that video he said he was being sponsored to review the game. This may be part of that contract agreement.

    This is an Economics channel that has reviewed the economy in other video games such as Eve and the economy in different countries. Just natural to eventually talk of Entropia as an education video that fits the channel.


    So no it's unlikely that MA had anything to do with it. This is the best objective video I have seen talking of our Economy and they called the game a Casino latter in the video which MA wouldn't want in a sponsored vid.


    There was an MA sponsored video and there is a thread on that it had under 1k views. Then this video came out.

    Regardless it's a very fair video and after it's release I posted it in rookie chat yesterday and had a new player that watched that video and was here to check out the game. So likely more people have joined to see what Entropia is about. The things I love about the video is never did they ever talk about this being a FREE to play game or anything like that. They said you will lose money by doing professions. That Entropia is a good economic study in regards to it's actual economy.

    So good objective videos like this one are needed. Where players know you need to deposit and you will lose if you play. That the investment or economy aspect comes from owning Land, shops, deeds or services.

    nice video. I wish it were corrected that the exchange rate really isn't 10ped -> 1 dollar. If you buy ped online at EU website, its actually a .95% ratio. MU gets their cut right from the beginning.

    Very good information. Thank you for clarifying. I'll have to finish watching the video later tonight.

    And I agree with you, that more objective videos are needed about EU. I always felt like selling the game as "You can become filthy rich in EU all you have to do is play!" Was the wrong approach. It's good for prospective players to understand the risks, rewards, and know that most likely the game will be a hobby that costs some money to play each month.

    Great video, honest review of game more or less how I explain to my friends. You can have some luck but over time house will always win. Want to make money use the EU economy but don't play against the house.


    For sure this will get much better results than the one really sponsored by MA.

    But does a new player stay ?

    Any average joe can see how much peds spent per hour, see avg return with X setup, and see the cost per hour to play.
    And run away.

    Adverdising about making money is not a great idea, but i am probably wrong in this one.
