Gambling and Entropia in 2009. SEE what the oldtimers said back then and what they have to say today

Discussion in 'General Entropia Universe Discussion' started by McCormick, Jan 12, 2019 at 13:11.

  1. I stumbled across this old "Gambling in Entropia can destroy your reallife" article from 2009 on rock paper shotgun.

    And jesus, they all came up with their avatar names to fuck with the author...or, did they ?


    -Oldtimers yelling at the author, how shit he is...but disliking Mindarks way of today.

    -Oldtimers protecting Entropia at all costs, claiming the author "wasnt made for Entropia"...but disliking Mindarks way of today.

    -Oldtimers crying how shit the game is in 2009...just to fully protect it 10 years later...because they have "invested" tons of money...

    This is pure gold. Grab some hot chocolate or whisky and enjoy another "history repeating".

    Then, after 2 years of silence in the comments section...the account "Entropia Planets" shows up ala : "Hey, come around, we have all the info about this game you need" ^^ :p

    I mean, look where we are today.

    -Entropia turned into a gigantic PR gag, that keeps announcing things, introducing em half ready, or never...it fails constantly (CLD Land plots, Compet, Deeptoken etc.)

    -The bugs are strong in this game, keep returning and usally take ages to get fixed, if its a player problem...and hours, if its a Mindark problem.

    -Explosive Blueprint crafting (pure one armed bandit gambling) became a gigantic..."profession"...

    -"Kunrad Solo Reez" scamming millions since 2013 from other players...
    ...to feed his and others gambling addiction...on Explosive Blueprints...

    -Developer handing out big loots planned or by "accident" (Leeloo or recent Whip(L))

    leeloo 158k ATH.

    http://www.entropiaplanets.com/threads/12-000-loot-was-a-mistake-by-the-developer.22299/

    Yet this "game" is online...and they all keep dropping their money into it, because it is still so much fun...and they are all makign so much money...*lol*....uncontrolled gambling addiction anyone ? While the top players share all the badass items and win those steady events...events...this game is just events...

  2. If only I’d read this guy I’d never have downloaded and saved a ton of money. I like his straight talking:

    “First of all: It’s shit. This game is shit. It’s a grindfest devoid of the colour, sense of place, charm and polish that makes that palatable. You [1]can [2] do [3] better [4], don’t go near it, don’t let your friends and family near it, and if they disobey you then make a habit of sneaking up on them while they’re sat playing and farting in their ear”.
     
  3. Usually such introductions can make a game become more interesting to the reader. x'D
