    Getting reoriented

    I had started playing entropia in the first half of 2009, and just as I was starting to no longer feel a complete newb vu10 hit. I strugged with vu10 for a bit, but it just did not run well at all for me so I needed to take a break from the game. RL issues then came up that made the break much longer then I thought it would be at the start.

    So, I finally got around to reinstalling the client and logging back in. I could not even seem to recall my account issue from before at the forum, so wound up making a new account. Now I feel like a newb all over again. Any tips to get back into the game would be apreciated. How are the new planets? Are they worth getting to? How would I got about getting to them? What is worth going to see and do on them. What should I be sure to do on Calypso now that has been added since then? Any changes I should be aware of?

    Welcome back!! The first thing I would do, just for safety reasons, is get ahold of support and ask them to either make sure your old account is dead or if it isn't, kill it so they can't ding you with it.

    Check out http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/ and http://www.entropiaplanets.com/forums/ then you can get acquainted again with all the new and old stuff so you can get a better understanding of what has happened since vu9! There are alot of things to explain here so the best bet is to take it slow and read up on what's going on.

    Next for the new planets... go to here:

    http://www.arkadiaforum.com/
    http://www.nextislandlife.com/content/
    http://www.neverdie.com/content/

    And for good measure:
    http://cyreneforum.com/ <<<- new planet coming online soon. as well as: Planet Toulan: http://www.planettoulan.com/game

    This will give you the best info as to what you can expect out of the new EU!!

    Gl to you and welcome back!!

    P.S. I hope you get a nice fat welcome back hof!!

    Welcome back,
    a lot of things have happened and a lot of stuff was introduced during the last 2 years. Unfortunately some of the reintroduced systems are still quite buggy, but i guess it will be sorted in the near future.

    Some Keypoints:
    -Tiering Items and atttaching Enhancers to them
    -Vehicles
    -Space travel ( lootable PVP )
    -Missions
    -Mining system simplified
    -Nice new planets ( Rocktropia, Next Island and Arkadia online, Cyrene coming soon, some more announced )

    Welcome back!

    I haven't been here long, but been flying around and done a lot different things lately, so I have newb view to share. Calypso is still place where most things happen, so it's safe bet to start if not sure about what to select. FOMA and CP are now very close to Calypso, so it's easy and short fly in space to there, if just looking small space visit somewhere and back. Hopefully those places get more popular, I like FOMA a lot, but it really needs more hunters and manufacturers there too.

    About other planets... It might be good for you to check out new mission line in Arkadia that are meant for new players. Just to see that planet and get those nice free items. That planet looks shiny! Almost opposite for it... Rocktropia is little bit hard place to start, but if enough courage and that dark theme doesn't run you away, there is also mission line that would give some nice items.

    There is "taxi services" etc that will transport people around space, if you don't want to buy own quad for travelling. From FOMA and CP you can instant teleport back to Calypso, but you need to pay some PEDs for it.

    Remember to find nice society to make you feel like home... If really feeling completely newb and lost, find good mentor. Mentor system is back and works nicely.

    Have fun!
