Thread: BOooOoooRING

    BOooOoooRING

    That's exactly what I said to myself today while I was hunting.

    It's not a new feeling.
    I've been bored with the game for a few months now, wondering what's the point of...

    But now I'm getting to the point where I think it's an absolute waste of time and money.

    What's that because of ?

    Well I have to tell this weekend I lost 2500 PED by hunting big mobs for a few hours at Monria's event... It doesn't help to be happy..

    But most of all, it's an old feeling due to the flatness of the loot.
    Returns are flat as fuck.
    Nothing good ever happens, ever.

    Everything is planned, everything is calculated, no randomness, absolutely nothing to surprise us.
    You hunt small mobs, you lose a little.
    You hunt medium mobs, you lose medium.
    You hunt big mobs, you lose a lot.
    End of story.
    Where are the big loot ? Where are the big HoFs ? Where are the ATH ?


    Also, MA does a lot for the "trading platform" side of EU.
    So "investors" are probably happy, they will be able to deposit $750k again now thanks to the new deeds..

    So investors are happy, and MA is happy.
    But what's left for the players !?
    By the way, are there any PLAYERS left ? Or maybe I'm the last one ?

    I am BORED...

    I play a lot, every day, but now I wonder... why..?

    So to those of you who have read this, the players (not the investors or traders), I ask you;

    What are you holding on to ?
    What keeps you playing ?

    Life on Earth is boring. Just like you said about the game, Earth is the same:

    Everything is planned, everything is calculated, no randomness, absolutely nothing to surprise us.
    Life on Calypso is far preferable, despite days of poor loot

    If playing is as boring as real life, then what's the point of being in-game?

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I don't see how you can relate that sentence to real life, which for me is the exact opposite.
    I'm sorry if you think life is so boring.

    I, for one, have never known boredom in my life, not for a second.
    Even if I just sit around doing nothing, I don't know how to be bored.
    Life abounds with concepts, it is really entropic, and the amount of new things to learn every minute is infinite.

    It can happen that I find one thing boring, a movie for example, if that's the case I stop it before the end and watch another one.

    Unlike a movie that is already finished, Entropia is in constant evolution, which allows you to hope for better and better...

    Now, imagine doing this for 15 years...

    Maybe change planets?

    Or take a break?


    But yeah, this game is ultimately boring.
    You just need goals to keep going on.

    I'm done at calypso.
    No more long term goals there. Just lame codex.
    Now at cyrene, doing the dailies to get my 500 faction badges, 5 per day.
    Probably useless, but at least I got a goal to work to.

    1 hour a day, keeps the doctor away!

    I got my first tower at the same event

    I actually started playing this game in 2006.

    My main goal was to skill-up enough to be effective in PvP, as I think it's one of the few really fun things in this game.
    But PvP is completely dead, and MA doesn't care, as it probably doesn't make them enough money, and money is the only thing that motivates them.

    Yes, and how much did you pay for this ?

    I mean, how many times did you lose the amount of that tower before you got it ?
    And how many times are you going to lose it again after that ?

    That's the problem, I was playing this game long before 2.0, where you'd see 20k PEDs dropping from the Trox young every week for example, and alot of real big loots..
    You could win TT, I know it cause I did it long time ago.

    Now the only thing you can hope for is to "earn" a small part of the money you lost before...

    Basically, they take 100 PED a day from you, and then after 2 months they drop a 3k PED HoF, which is actually half of what you lost, and people are happy with that because it makes light !?

    It's genius... Or is it something else..?

    Hi ~ Cirrus ~

    Just to cover some of your points:

    It's called providing a service.


    I seriously don't understand how people can get bored in EU. Yes, you may get bored if you keep doing the same thing, but if you're bored with it - try something new. You can always try hunting new mobs, mining or crafting new things (and have either in-game mission and/or personal goals and specialties etc), or maybe something completely different like:


    • Running a shop

    • Explorer

    • In-game photographer/YouTuber/Streamer

    • Start a society (range of professions here from helping n00bs to professional hunt groups with special events)

    • In-game rare items collector (maybe even put items on display as I kind of art studio)

    • Healing in sweat circles (I like doing this )

    • Run a fashion competition

    • Have hunting/mining competitions with your buddies, etc

    • Be a social butterfly and just log on and chat to people in your FL



    I mean there's loads of little intricacies tied to the main professions and what I've listed above - you just need a bit of imagination.


    At the end of the day EU is a 'Universe' - a virtual playground for you to have fun in. Yes, there are set things for people to do, but there are also other things to try out as well. Mix it up a bit.

    Yes, by 'playing the game' the vast majority of people will 'lose' as you put it (or 'spend money on a fun service' as I would put it), but if most people didn't 'lose' then there would be nothing to play as MA would have gone out of business and EU wouldn't exist any more.

    When I hunt and mine etc, I fully expect to lose overall - and that's fine. I do it because it's fun. If I get a win in the process, then awesome, but I'm not 'expecting' it. When I get bored of doing a particular thing, I just stop and do something else. I suggest you do the same.
