Why the Average Player Can't Make Money in Entropia Universe
The interesting thing is that with this game you are essentially playing against everyone else playing. The important point behind this is that you cannot rely on other people in the game to help you make a lot of money. The people who spend time going around looking for guides and other tools need to realize that people are looking out for themselves because while it may look like they want you to succeed, it is in their best interest to have you spend a lot of money in the game so that they can hopefully make more money from your mistakes.
Do you want to be better than average? You can't just play the game and go sweat for 10 hours because you are making little money and wasting your time. The max that people make by sweating was $3 an hour. This is half of what minimum wage currently is in the U.S. and therefore not appropriate for your time. That being said, this is what the average player will do in Entropia so you need to do more than that. Think outside the box and begin to question what the 'experts' say. In order to be successful, you need to build yourself up into a money making machine. No one can't tell you what that is but be creative in your expeditions. There is no one way to make money and no amount of reading will tell you how to do it but if you think about what other players want and how you can get it to them, you will make money.
One good way to do this is to specialize. If you take one or two skills and make them your entire goal, you will become a master of them. When you are a master, people will come to you in order to get things done and get what you have to offer. The average people in the game will go out and try to learn as many things as possible, which is fun, but will require you to spend money to do pretty much anything. Your aim is to be on the other side of that and be the provider for the 'stupid' players who just want to have fun. The best part about this is that if you become a master of something, you will have so much money from fulfilling other people's goals that you can do whatever you want and actually have a good time playing the game.
