Ok I played this game for about a month and I have came to this conclusion. The game is fundamentally flawed. NO matter what you do and careful you are you cannot possibly gain or even retain your extremely precious PED. Some players would argue that this is incorrecct as you can partake in other activities such as trading, between mining/hunting runs to keep your PED balance up. I tried this and it took hours of anguished spamming the chat in order to gain 1 or 2 peds, and more to the point who wants to trade? Because I would much rather to be hunting.
As far as I could tell in my one month The only way you could play the game without depositing money each month is if you already deposited a good 5grand to get your skills up so you can be economical at what you do. TO be honest i'm not prepared to pay that much to play a game.
This brings me on to my next point MindArk charges you for absolutely everything you do. You are charged for rediculous things such as putting on and taking of armour.
However this is not the main reason for my quitting the game, and to be fair despite these things I was moderately enjoying my time on planet calypso. However eventually it dawned on me that i could be having the same amount of fun in many other games without having to worry about every last thing I did. This was the game breaker for me because I realised that I could simply log onto to any P2P game pay my monthly sub, and simply play for a month without having to worry about stretching my $15 over a month, and I can simply play the game.
