First off I wanted to introduce myself a little. I am a 37 year old father of 1 beautiful daughter. I am 37 years old and work from home currently for a local insurance company. I am in my first year of college for 3d animation and video game design. I have been a avid gamer since the dinosaurs walked this earth. I joined the game Nov 30th 2013. With that said, yes I am very new to the game and am very noobish in many ways. When I first started the game I found myself interested in the game , but it was a little dull I must admit do to being used to playing games with peers, guildies, or clan members whatever the situation was at the time. I was completely lost, but eager to learn. So I began my search on google to find a community where maybe I could find my place in this new world I had become part of. I ended up coming here to entropiaplanets.com. I created a account made a post in the middle of the night might I say and had a response within no time. This has made me feel very welcomed as a player and has made my participation in this game feel in some ways refreshing and comfortable. After conversation on a couple posts I was introduced to a society named Q intities and welcomed with open arms to join them if I would like to learn more about EU. I gladly accepted the invitation and was signed up with a ingame mentor promptly to begin my new journey with my new Society. I just wanted to add that by joining a Society as a new player can be very beneficial as well. The more people you meet in the society and interact with the more knowledge of the game you will learn. Societies have players of all types new and seasoned players to share experiences and knowledge. Honestly at first I was cautious as a new player to just jump right in an go, due to the whole real money cash economy thing. But I must say being part of a Society has helped me immensely in getting my first foot in the door. Also as a new player try and take advantage of the Mentor System in game. After graduation you will receive armor and I believe the Mentor gets something as well for your graduation. From what I have found in this world is people are very accepting compared to your standard online games where people constantly try to troll you, belittle you , or just plain out steal from you. I have found this game so far to have way less drama than other popular games out there on the market. The people are nice and welcoming. The more people that feel welcomed the better and stronger the game becomes as a over all player data base and the more players means a better economy. I am just trying to give a feel for players that are new like me and hopefully you can learn something through my experiences as my posts come in the future to give updates on my experiences here in EU. One more thing to add. I know we all could use a profit and I just wanted to state that as a new player your chances of that start right out the door with this game. My 3rd day into the game I hit a oil mine with all noob gear and items no enhances no added features. My very first HOF (Hall of Fame) worth 236 ped. Amazing experience and the rush felt wonderful. Little lights glow around your avatar and it put my name and info on the HOF bulletin. Got me hooked, and on a positive note through my experience so far with the Society and here on entropiaplanets.com I feel I fell into the right hands and you all have made this universe a great place for me to be a part of. And I thank you! I have already began to spread the word to my real life friends and old gaming friends for many years about this game and hopefully I can bring some more members in the future to be a part of this great and wonderful community.
