My experiences in the Entropia Universe (2011 version)

As mentioned previously, I had heard about the game in a local magazine, and that it was not till much later that I had decided to try it out...

The day was February the 14th 2007, the time was 5:45 WAST, I had just finished downloading the client (took ages to download on my old pc) and began installing it, the installation process was nothing to speak about, just wish there was some nice background artwork or something... No matter...

So I logged in that Evening...

Since there was no extensive manual, of any kind, I had no idea whatsoever of what to do, the guides I kept hearing people mention were fairly helpful, they taught me a few things (which should have been covered by a manual of some kind) as did my soon to be mentor...

Much later...

I met my mentor, Alexandros Kingsize Phenomenon, or Alex as I called him, In the quiet town of Port Atlantis after a rather non-profitable sweat trip... He would give me advice that would help...

After receiving the advice of my Mentor (Alex), I took up hunting and made some money that way, but it was not long before I needed to learn about this thing called "Skill Increase Bonus"...

I found the information I needed from Alex and from that old gem, Entropia Forum, which later became Planet Calypso Forum.

Much, much later...

I had been a member of several societies (In other games, these would be called "Guilds", "Clans", or "Factions"), my first one was Second Life Anonymous, but due to the inactivity of the society and it's members, I eventually defected to the (Now Defunct) society Australianz Rules.

Sometime in July...

Eventually I joined the Society known as 'The Knights of Calypso', I would join following a friend by the name of Tony Rocketfingers, who I have not seen in some time. I am now a Captain of the Knights, something achieved after my old mentorship program and other activities.

Eventually, After much money, blood, sweat, broken guns and tears, I graduated from my Discipleship with flying colours, Alex didn't get anything special out of it, but he gave me a truckload (more like a few, I die alot ) of Fast Aid Packs, which I still have today in my storage on Calypso.

2009 came and would eventually bring a new surprise in mid August: Version Update 10.0.

With the new update came with many new issues, such as taking ages to log into the game because the client kept losing connection to the server, regardless of connection strength.

The new graphics were 'nice' though they should have remade the textures for some areas, as they look liked they were ripped out of the previous version and ported to the new one with minimal changes.

Some nice surprises had arrived in the form of loots, but nothing really impressive. Loots had sadly, been pretty poor generally, with mining even worse - In my experiences.

2010 came and I received my first Mining global, and a few more Hunting globals, which was quite the achievement, considering that for most of the year I was unable to play.

I participated in the WoF 2008 and 2009, representing Australia, which was fun, except for the deaths...

(I have come back and left many times, racking up over 1000 hours of playtime, with my avatar now surpassing my previous blog posting. Has almost unlocked a few more hidden skills)

My profits weren't much to speak of... Yes its possible to make money, not a lot of money I made a whopping 15 cents playing the way countless people have recommended... Anyhoo...

My avatar is worth more than that though, If I was to sell out now I'd at least get 1k or more for my trouble. That said, I'm taking a break from the game due to persistant login issues, and missing item bugs. I would like to return, but if I did, it would be as a non-depositor.
