Twenty-Five Reasons Why People Join

  • “The real reason I enjoy playing is the complexity of the game and the freedom granted players to do whatever they want. Players can hunt creatures, kill robots, drive or fly vehicles, drill the ground for resources, manufacture armor and weapons, explore, even kill other players and loot them.”
  • “In this game you build real world value into your avatar. In WoW, the property you acquire has NO value.“
  • “During my second day in the game I joined a society called “The Knights of Calypso.” The group helped me discover new towns, answered all my questions, and I even received many items as free gifts. I was amazed that these people were setting me up with things that normally cost real money, yet they were giving them away to strangers.”
  • “Other games seem pointless when a real cash economy allows you to actually gain real life value for your gaming.”
  • “A difficult game to learn, but after playing it for a year I admit the game is solid. You can earn real money, but the knowledge in learning how to do this will take a lot of time invested and perhaps some lost earnings because people won't tell you how to make money you have to figure it out slowly on your own.”
  • “It’s amazing who you can meet in the game. I love the women too ;)”
  • “Unlike any other game, this one is difficult. WOW for example is so piss easy that you almost automatically level up. Here you either open your wallet or you play extremely smart on a smaller budget. This game has no cap and the combination of Real Cash Economy and its toughness is what gives me joy .“
  • “Breathtaking scenery, loads of untapped potential, great people from all over the world and from all demographics.”
  • “The only MMORPG where if you win or lose has a real sense and thus increases the adrenaline when you play.”
  • “Great if you seek nice graphics, excitement and a lot less 14 year olds running around calling each other nub and other more unfriendly names.”
  • “The Real Cash Economy aspect makes this game more exciting than any other game out there.”
  • “No other game has kept me interested for such a long time. The economy is an on-going challenge that just makes it far more interesting to play than subscription-based games.”

  • “This game strives to be the most realistic virtual environment ever and contains many features other MMORPG's can't even dream of. Take, for instance, a REAL WORLD INCOME for those who are smart enough.”
  • “Not for everyone. This game takes thought, dedication and time. Have you got what it takes to succeed here? I'm 5 years playing and it only gets better.”
  • “Real cash economy, stable player base. Really tough at first, sometimes a bit expensive, but very pleasurable game to play!”
  • “The Real Cash Economy makes it feel real more than any eye candy graphics. Playing it for 6 years and still love it.”
  • “Great graphics and awesome leveling system. A great economy ran by players allowing people to explore multiple opportunities.”
  • “Mainly adults/mature gamers.”
  • “Hard as hell, good looking, not for the faint of heart. Real cash economy makes it tough as clint at his best.”
  • “Challenging, frustrating at times, but when you finally do succeed, the feeling is exhilarating!”
  • “Huge areas to explore. Most diverse and dynamic game I've ever played.”
  • “You really can make some money there. Even if you just buy Calypso land deeds that bring you a weekly revenue.”
  • “I have been an MMORPG player since Ultima Online. After playing UO, EQ and WoW I had lots of memories but no $$$ from the time I spent. In this game, I was hoping to deposit $15/month and $60 twice a year (what I was paying to play WoW) and see how far that takes me over the next few years. I was hoping to get an account value of 30k-100k. I was doing pretty good, making nice progress ... but all changed once Calypso land deeds came out. I am now depositing more and having ALOT more fun with business end of the game; ie: crafting for mark-up, trying to find low cost suppliers of raw materials, building customer lists, …”
  • “I thought I'd have this game figured out over a cup of coffee and walk away rich. Still drinking my coffee and still aint gotten rich so I'll call it a work in progress.”
  • “Like many I was interested by the stories of people profiting from the game and thought I'd check it out. I may never profit, but I like the fact I don't have to pay every month, and that if I wanted to I could cash out the value of the items I have in the game.”
