What Is The Other Guy Doing?

In Entropia Universe, it’s vital to learn from other people. Every mistake you make can cost you money, and knowledge will help you to profit. In previous articles, we’ve discussed getting a mentor and joining a society, and there’s lots of good information on the community sites such as EntropiaWiki and Planet Calypso Forums.

Look Up Stats

Understanding an item’s stats is important in most MMO games, but in Entropia Universe, it’s more crucial than ever, because of the real cash economy. Using the right tool for the job can make the difference between profit and loss, so you need to know what to look out for.

Get A Pet


As you explore Entropia Universe, you’ll notice that a lot of avatars are accompanied by an animal or robot that follows them around. These are pets, and their main purpose is to provide special buffs that increase an avatar’s abilities. There are various different types of buff available, and each type of pet has a different selection of buffs. The most popular buffs at the moment are the ones that increase your running speed, and the ones that allow you to automatically loot a creature when you kill it (similar to the auto-loot pills available in the trade terminal).

Skills Matter in Entropia Universe

While it is rare to find gameplay that does not incorporate skills and the various doors that open to more highly skilled avatars, few games have the complexity of skills as Entropia Universe. Your typical game uses skills as gateways, requiring you to reach an arbitrary level before you can use a higher level weapon or access a different level of the adventure. Entropia Universe absolutely has these functions and more. Calling Entropia Universe a skill based, real cash economy loot gathering game is really on beginning to describe

Matching Gear With Skills

Playing most pvp or shooter type games, one typically tries to use as much firepower as possible. Let’s be realistic, when you are heavy into a season of Fortnite, do you care if you use a Heavy Shotgun or a Grenade Launcher as long as you obliterate your enemy? The same thing goes for nearly every other shoot-em-up game in existence. As always, there is an exception and if you guessed Entropia Universe, you would be absolutely correct.

Write It Down

Since the days of GI Joe cartoons in the 80’s we have all known that knowledge is power. What if I were to tell you that in Entropia Universe it is not exactly power but money? An entertaining  recent example of the power (and profit) of knowledge is in the movie “Ready Player One” when Wade Watts wins a contest to take ownership of the entire OASIS simply because he knew of an easter egg in one of the first Atari games, Adventure. Wade became the richest person in the world because he knew his facts and applied them correctly.

How Important is it to Socialize in Entropia?

What makes Entropia Universe stand out amongst all the other sci fi adventure games available today? Asking players will give you answers such as “I like to make money from games”, I like a more “adult mmorpg”, or I love “building and leveling up an avatar, in Entropia there is no limit.” While not every player will give answers such as these, nearly universally they will say” I love the community and have great friends in the game” Being social is an essential part of any mmorpg, but Entropia Universe takes it to another level.

Why You Need A Mentor

As with any adventure into a new game, it helps to learn the ropes from someone who has been around. Entropia Universe has a reward system for veteran players who want to spend time helping noobs figure out how to play the game. Too often players land on Planet Calypso ready to begin their adventure but are quickly overwhelmed by the the options available to them. Do they hunt, mine or craft? Start a service or invest in virtual real estate? Hang out and chat, go sweat or search for fruit and rocks? This is where your mentor comes in and helps you along.

Get Paid to Play Entropia Universe

Who doesn't like to play video games? Every game has its cost: some have a one-time purchase fee, some have subscription fees and others are free to play -- but you need to pay to get the extras in the game. How about a game that can pay you to play? Yes, it’s true, you can earn real money and get paid to play Entropia Universe. Unless you are very lucky, you won’t make money directly from MindArk, the game’s developer. We have to be realistic: for the game to exist, the developer must stay in business. The way you make real money playing this game is to sell your loot to other players. It doesn’t matter if you are hunting, mining or crafting; someone needs the resources you are producing.

Buy Low and Sell High

We all know that is the secret to success in the stock market right? Easy enough buy an asset cheap, sell it for more than you paid for it and repeat that way all the way to the bank. Difficult at best in real life, not as hard as you might think in Entropia Universe....if you pay attention that is. One of the great things about a real cash economy game like Entropia Universe is the ability to make money playing a game. One of the many ways people playing the game make a few extra PEDs is to play the resource markets. The real money comes from knowing when it is going to be high and low, that comes with experience.

The Trend is Your Friend

One of the great things about the Entropia Universe console is the chat box that gives you information about things that are happening that will help you in the game. One of the more important pieces of information is one that you really have to pay attention to is the global announcements. Global announcements happen anytime someone gets an above average size loot in hunting, crafting or mining.

Specialize Then Generalize

Starting the adventure of a new game is always exciting. So many new areas to explore, missions to complete, friends to make and fortunes to acquire. Part of the appeal of the Entropia Universe includes taking that online fortune and converting it real world funds that you can spend on dinner instead of skill increase pills or a new jacket instead of armor. As a new participant, you will have started off in a new player area, most likely the Thule. In this area you are exposed to a very few areas of the game. You are given a pistol, told to mine complete a few tasks and then sent on your way.

Play Free Cash Games Online

Looking to play free cash games online? A growing list of developers are expanding gaming titles that serve the desire of gamers that want to add a little spice to their online play, allowing for the exchange of money through skill based games and creating a new generation of real money video gamers in the process.

Special Events Keep It Fresh

Do you get bored playing the same old game with the same old levels? Are you tired of repetitive games that once you figure out what to do offer no challenge or stimulation? If you are looking for an open-ended game that has regular special events you should explore Entropia Universe, from the developer Mindark.

Literally Get Paid To Play???
