Well... I made the initial decission since there is no confirmation regarding if the original planet you were born on gets a piece of your expendatures regardless of where you are to chip Trina out and start a brand new ava on Arkadia. I wanted to do this simply to not aid the idiots that treated us like crap for so long no matter what company they work for at this point. Its a matter of principle to me that I give my money to someone who treats me with some sembalance of respect. In the Entropia Universe that seems like Arkadia is the only place willing to treat its customers with respect. That being said... Today before I logged out I loaded the skill scanner...Captured my skills and logged into the optimiser site. Needless to say I am steaming mad. I am not going to vent here as I will give the same considerations to Dave and the Arkadia staff as they have given us so far and not go nuts here. We all know that since VU 10 a major effort by MA to devalue as much of players holdings has been in full force. Starting with the moronic idea to have events with 2x and 3x skill gains for the lazy ass Wow children to feel they got something for free. I did the quick and easy chip out to 0 setting to look at what I needed in ESI to pillage Trina and start a new Arkadian. The cost to chip her skills out came to 27k+ peds. I was pretty impressed that I had gained that much skill to cost that much even with ESI the lowest I have seen. That is until I looked at the place that showed total skill value. MA royally jammed any possibilty to salvage any investment into our avatars from skills sooooo far up the darkside my head is spinning. The cost to chip out my skills is over double the value of their total. Yes I can go tweek actual current percent values and gain some. This will in no way shape or form come even close to breaking even. Soo just a word of warning to any and all who play... If you are thinking down the line you can recoup some of your money by selling your skills FORGET IT. I cant imagine after that much loss in value of skills and the further devaluation of gear now and the added fees to actually get your money in your bank that you would even be at zero dollars and not go even further down the crapper trying to get the money home. I now fully believe inside info has been passed and that is why we are seeing so many of the old "Uber" gear being sold off before MA makes even that worth nothing. I thought something was mad fisshy when all these people selling that gear all of the sudden wanted to "open their options" for other ways to play. They are full of crap and only gettin out why the gettin is good.
