I am wondering how may people actually have EB10 and if they actually thought about it before they bought it.
So I bought EB10 without actually thinking about it. I have talked (a little) to Rex to provide my opinion on EB10 and why not may people have it and how EB8 is the way to go.
EB10 gets a 1% interest a day. Yup, just a whopping 1%! So if you want that glamorous 5m daily, you will need to have 500 million credits. Sure, 500m is doable, but you will need to spend some real money just to keep it. First, you will need to spend 15 euros just to keep your bank level at wipe. Second, you will need to spend 20 euros to keep 400m. Combine the 400m support package and the 100m carry over for having EB10 you get to keep that 500m. But it cost you 35 euros (more than half the cost of a gameas average cost of a major release is $60 US) every 3 months. If you were lucky enough to spend more money (before the change of carry over) you can carry an additional 100m (dont remember how much that cost, but lets say 20 euros). With a potential to carry over 600m. Sounds nice right?!
Lets add in some of the other common purchases you spend ever 3 months. Recycle carry over, 9 euros and a planet for 77 euros. Sure you DONT have to purchase it, but the time it takes to get recycle and doing PVP you can lose a lot of mats. Sure you DONT have to buy a planet, but lets face it, it is a MAJOR convenience thing. As you can see, the support packages can add up real quick. All that adds up to 121 euros (not including if you are a patron).
I know a majority of you do not pay this. But there are a LOT of you that do. I finding that this game is costing more and more the enjoy and with the recent EB10 and support carry over, it has started to put things into perspective. Name a bank that gives you less interest with the more money and investment that you give the bank. I am not complaining, but when I talked Rex, I was told I could spend more money. That kind of had me thinking, ALOT! Is it really worth it? Full disclosure, I did state that I am considering stopping support with the rising cost to enjoy the game. When you spend over 100 euros ever 3 months and support via patron, the cost is a lot.
