    You better craft some explosive ammo, like "Kunrad Solo Reez". ;D

    p.s.
    Its still "amazing" to SEE, how much money people throw at Entropia...or stupid mobile games...to open crates....thousands of dollars, hoping to recieve an item, worth less then the already deposited dollars...gambling anyone ?

    It is interesting, however as I posted here earlier, people who do not deposit are people and people who deposit lots are people, both should be treated with respect.

    There is no real problem with people who deposit lots, or buy lots of strongboxes, or 'invest' in various things.
    The problem is unrealistic expectations. Strongboxes can be treated like depositing, so if depositing is ok, then buying strongboxes is also ok. Atleast that is how I see it.

    The problem is when you feel you 'deserve' some prize because you spent 'x' amount, or played 'x' hours, or are from whatever class of people you feel makes you better than everyone else.
     
  3. The problem is the "game developer"... before the days of DLCs and lootboxes...you bought a game and had fun.
    It was yours. It wasnt online.

    This is just gambling for great virtual items, no matter what kind of expectations you have.
    Everyone knows exactly what hes doing. And its already too late, if you are addicted and your reallife got fucked hard...
     
  4. well, as a side note, his gambling on boxes probably got him more fun in game than gambling in a real world casino or lottery would... it's all in perspective... is the glass half full, half empty, or non-existent since it's simply a bunch of atoms thrown together?
     
  5. there are different approaches i guess, one is by opening just a massive amount of boxes, another one by maybe correct timing to open (+right place for sure).

    for me the 2nd approach worked better than the first, as i looted an xmas ring on ark around 2 weeks ago. iirc 240 ped for 70 boxes (plus tip later). sold for 30k BO. well, thanks! :smile:

    only 19 rings were looted at all, so i guess 99% of all people who open boxes, sit in the same boat of peeps looting pets, snowballs and useless decoration - maybe an amp or some pills if you're more lucky than the rest...

    out ouf that 19 rings, 2 people looted 2 of them ... and THAT is the only fucked up mindarked issue i can see here

    In a real life casino you get free drinks. In EU you get free bugs.

  7. Yes I failed! I failed and lead people to think I lost 10k dollars which is not true and I try to fix in following posts I think its because of my low English language lvl. I'm doing my best.
    I don't feel I have gambling problems as it was not a gamble, it was my way of deposit for the last 3yrs. The point of my thread is to rise the question of how unfair and a heads up for those who think if they buy more boxes they will get something out of them easy. I have a lot of stuff bought with that money can't lie, I don't have it all but I do have over 80% of that money... yet.. :D
    But yes, i do recognize i spend more money in this game than what it is worth maybe ill spend it with hookers in a few yrs.. who knows :D

    PS: I follow you since almost forever and i like your sense of humor. keep it up!

    Regards

    I think it is important to know how much I can spend with lotteries or casino games. But usually when I invest a lot into a lottery I will earn a lot as well. It may happen, that I fail at one or two attempts. But over time it should work. Happened to me at least. And if I'm in luck I get a really big one. Didn't happen for me unfortunately. The problem with lotteries is: even someone who didn't spent a lot has the chance to win a big prize. Has been a problem since I can remember over and over again.
     
  9. Looks like the nub you mentioned looted another one...
    3 christmas rings to one player. I don't see how that can be coincedence (sure it can be in theory, but in reality.. no way)
    This is the lucky guy: http://www.entropialife.com/Profile.aspx?P=341485
    Not saying he does it on purpose somehow, but the system does seem to be broken.

    Uhm, maybe everyone can post screenshots of EntopiaLife, unfortunately its content is hidden behind a log wall.

    It's easy, you can just paste images in a post here with control+v.

  12. it's not a new phenomenon, it's just ignored by mindark as usual ... or fully intentional

    upload_2019-1-2_14-45-56.

    i mean, how in hell could it be possible, that only 2 players looted that 6 seasonal rings in a timespan of 10 days

    guess they can never ever again really convince me that they care about their game ... because THEY FUCKING DON'T

    :devilish:

  13. This kind of coincidences was what moved me to make that thread with a bit of drama title in hope to rise some attention in the community. I've been looking at who looted what and found that there are some players with few seasonal rings looted already. One well known player was lucky enough to loot 2x Christmas, 1x Summer, 1x Halloween and 1x Ares perfected so far. Don't forget rings looted on website don't show up on tracker.
