I might take a look at it, though I've dabbled in their stuff twice- once during closed beta, and then again a year or two later. Both times I felt it was a bit off-putting.

Since I don't have as much time to game as I used to (a downside to employment :-P ), an "improved" starting area might make it a more attractive prospect for getting a feel of the place.

p.s. you have a typo (MinkArk)

I may check it out again as well to see what the starter area is like. The last time I tried it was sometime early CryEngine 2 release. The thing that really put me off most about Entropia was the horrible character animations and controls. My character just didn't feel like it had well...character.

So, I gave the new starting area a try. I like the training it provides. It does need some tweaking and it could use some better visual indication messages to direct players. Otherwise, once you are done, they explain to go to Port Atlantis where they teleport you inside a shopping mall and you pretty much have to find your bearings from there. I found myself running all over the place only to find out I made a few wrong turns. Wasted time running around. Definitely could use some more improvements.

I played it a couple of years ago and did not like the money sink part of it. The leveling for any skill is just a terrible grind. I love the idea, but did not feel I got my money's worth...

Is this Anorexia Online? Even the gun could use a few pounds.

Entropia is all about ripping people off. So their armor being "inspired" by a much more popular game and developer isn't surprising.

You do realize that Entropia Universe started in 2003 and Mass Effect was released in 2007 right? So I think it might be the other way around ;). With the release of CryEngine 2 to the game the armor has not changed much. The armor basically looks the same since 2003, with some great graphics tweaks along the way of course.
