Choosing a Planet to start on
Which is the best Entropia Universe planet to start on? This page gives an overview.
If you are still undecided which planet to choose after reading the guide you might want to ask for recommendations on the forums: http://www.entropiaplanets.com/forums/tutorials-guides-and-help.22/.
Which planet to start on
Choosing the "right" planet to start on is really important. This choice is already being made by registering your Entropia Universe account via the website of your planet of choice. If you register your account via the official Entropia Universe website you can choose a planet when leaving the universal introductionary area called Genesis.
Although gameplay is not much different across the planets each planet has a specific setting and potentially offers opportunities different from the other planets. Also one planet might be more newbie friendly than the other and offer activities less expensive than other planets.
Once you have chosen a planet traveling from this planet to another quite likely will cost you a few PED (10-30). Also it is dangerous to transfer belongings in the form of stackable items because space is an area with Player-versus-Player combat where other players can loot your stackable items if they manage to kill you.
Furthermore the planet partner of your planet of origin will receive a part of the money you spend in EU, even if you spend it on another planet. You might wish that this part of the money you spent in EU will go to the planet you like the most and that way support the development of the planet.
So choose your planet to start on carefully!
Our current recommendation for a planet to start on is Planet Calypso. It has the most content, the most players and the most elaborated economy. For signing up you best go through the official website: planetcalypso.com.
