Planet Calypso: The $70,000 virtual egg is finally hatching

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by EntropiaPlanets, Apr 16, 2013.

  1. Today Entropia Universe AB or MindArk AB or Planet Calypso AB or TractionPR or whoever -let's hope they know who they are and what they are doing- published a press release stating that the Unique Green Atrox Queen Egg has hatched.

    That actually happened yesterday and resulted in the Feffox which is considered one of the ugliest creatures ever seen in Entropia Universe.

    But even after the egg has hatched the current owner of the egg, David Storey, seems not to be involved.

    David Storey aka Deathifier is a well known Entropia Universe player and investor who bought the egg for almost USD 70,000 from Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs. More of the eggs history can be found in this article: http://www.entropiaplanets.com/threads/the-history-of-the-unique-green-atrox-queen-egg.8830/


    Original press release

    Gothenburg, Sweden - April 16, 2013 /Entropia Universe/ - Entropia Universe AB, the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (or MMORCE) game, announced today that the famous $70,000 virtual Atrox Queen dinosaur egg is hatching. The egg had lain dormant for over 6 years, and been sold numerous times, what comes out though will be worth the wait.

    As scientists in the game attempted to open the egg they were attacked by the RX robotic units, invaders that have plagued the world before, and allowed the newborn creature to escape. This new creature, a Feffox, has begun causing havoc on the planet, destroying cities and wildlife alike. Players will need to go into the Feffox nests to gather specimens and create a toxin to stop the spread of this deadly beast. Once the toxin is released the players will have to come together one last time for a massive battle to save the world.

    During this Spring event players will find special creatures and loot spawning on Planet Calypso. There will also be special PVP events with MindArk personnel, a hunting competition, and new areas will be introduced along with a huge new robot unit that will require team coordination to take down. There will even be various and hunting, mining and crafting events to keep everyone entertained as the new storyline unfolds.

    "Entropia Universe AB, the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (or MMORCE) game, announced today..."

    "There will also be special PVP events with MindArk personnel"

    "Planet Calypso AB develops and markets Planet Calypso, a Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (MMORCE) game based on the Entropia Platform"

    How comes EU AB is making statements for Planet Calypso? How comes MindArk personnel is running events on Planet Calypso? Is there a chance you get this straight once and for all?

  4. I read on MindArk official site that Planet Calypso it is given back to MA by SEE Universal ...do not have the link because I am on mobile...but is posted there that Planet Calypso is owned by MA..

    Edit: reached home so i can copy paste

    Notice: 16 June 2011 12:30 UTC
    MindArk wants to inform our users that the cooperation between SEE and MindArk has been terminated. From now on, MindArk will run the operation of Planet Calypso. Participants of the Entropia Universe will not in any way be affected.

    So MindArk PE AB owns Planet Calypso AB and Entropia Universe AB

    yeh they reposessed the planet ages ago. Old news. I find it hard to believe the egg came to no value in the end.... then again... it was never really "meant" to be sold. I'm sure we have not seen the end of the storey yet.
