What do you people think of games like these. I mean you have to spend real world money in this game to get anywhere at the rate of $1 for 10 EP. However when you start earning money in game you can actually transfer that EP back into dollars. I mean I've heard this game is in the Guiness Book of World Records cause some guy sold a resort propery on a planet in game for $635,000

I have no interest in playing it or any game like it myself, but one of my former bosses played it basically like a second job and I'm pretty sure he was earning more from Entropia than he was from where we worked.

YO DO NOT PLAY THIS FUCKED UP GAME!

It's a casino. I lost some money on here. The lottery commission or whatever agency that deals with casinos and galmbling, they tried investigating it... and EU found their way out!

In EU, it's basically gambling. You can hunt,mine,craft. You depo money, not for subscription time, but to buy ammo (hunting, probes (mining), materials (crafting). You can also spend the money to pimp out your avi (like clothes and ships).

BUT, so u spend 10 rounds of ammo, you get back "loot". Sometimes the loot you get is more than the ammo u spent, sometimes less, sometimes none. When you get loot above a certain amount, theirs swirlies and trumpet sounds and MMO-wide announcements and a Hall of Fame for highest loots (like winning at a casino).

The point is, there's no rule as to the minimum you can win or maximum. You could depo $100, spend htat in ONE HOUR, LITERALLY because bigger guns cost a lot more ammo, and the loot you get could potentially be huge (like $1,000).. So you could lose tha $100, or get back $90, but ofc, you'll want to keep spending that $90 to see if you can get back the $100 or "earn" more. It's not a game man. It's just gambling.

But, I guess if you go in knowing you're going to lose, and you're just in it for a fun time (ther are better games for fun times man... trust me), then you probably won't be disappointed.

I would stay away from the game though. I maxed out my credit card playing that. Ugh.

He probably was a trader. Those are the scum of the earth - but hey they make a good living. Buying low, selling high... rinse, repeat. But each time you know you're selling your soul cuz you know you're making money off of gamblers... idk.
