E2economist is in essence bias / pro Earth2 in all articles. But THE E2 Investors / Community comes before E2 THE Company. By this article we want to show that E2Economist acknowledge the frustration the E2 Investors may have since the last E2 update.

Aftermath – Another poorly managed E2 Update

The dust settles
….from the release of the new Jewel System update performed January 19th.
Overall it is not very pretty for the E2 Investors.

In short, the update made Jewels less attractive with more slots for the Investor to fill together with a heavily reduced E-ther Boost. On the upside, Resource % Boost is up… an asset the investor know nothing about (yet).

The biggest impact has to be that Single tile properties ESSENCE farming is now a thing in the passed.

The single tile property strategy was first heavily impacted by the introduction of EDC (Dec 3rd), limiting ESSENCE yield, and now it seems like the last blow have been dealt by replacing the +2 E-ther boost attained from the T2 Crafted Jewels (Jamaican, Sunrise, Sunset) with the 2% E-ther boost.

A strategy many investors have invested hard earned capital in the pursuit to maximize the yield of the future Crypto Currency ESSENCE (ESNC). A Strategy that may now have been rendered obsolete.

A rebalance, where large properties are now more favoured than small ones.
However, not by strengthening LARGE properties with new benefits but rather by weakening the SMALL ones.

It is not the first update that have made E2 Investors feel cheated upon.
New country releases such as Dubai and Iraq. International Connected countries swapping to independent pricing without notice. New features without guidelines. Locking countries without informing investors what will happen to their investments. Cash grabs signals when EPLs where released initially without the option to pay with ESSENCE. T2 land that should not spawn jewels now can (E2 apologizing that this was the intention from start though misinformed). Slots adjustment making small properties more expensive to slot and the list goes on.

TRUST

The update did bring a lot of new questions about in-game features and new potential strategies which generally should be a good outcome of an update though more important questions where instead directed largely towards Earth2 as a company and their capacity to manage updates in a professional way.

TRUST HAVE BEEN DAMAGED

Investors expectations and mindset falls more and more into an increasing state of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt). Where nothing is safe or holy in Earth2. For all the investor know now is that anything can change in any future update.

What happens if the pricing mechanism for New Tiles changes and property value is reduced?
What happens if more countries are locked?
What happens if Holobuildings have no real purpose and is largely replaced by another construction function?
Is Holobuildings even collecting resources, as we speak, like promised?
Are they changing the Jewel Yield ?
Are they changing the Ether Yield & Conversion rates?
And so on….

PURPOSE OF THE TEST SITE?

Another outstanding question is:
What ON Earth..2 is actually the purpose of the TEST site? It was not hard for Investors, using the TEST site, to see the update and noticing several simple errors a couple of days before launch to the MAIN site.

Small issues like:
Descriptions either missing (E.g. Slate Jewel) or being incorrect. Number formats like 2 Decimals when jewels display their diminished performance in slots.

A simple solution the community have offered before:
Why not implement USER TESTING with a few passionate investors to trial out the Test site and report the simple bugs identified before launch to the main site. Volunteers would love to support Earth2 with this service for free. E2Economist would be one to support. Use the MODs or at least someone..

Earth2 need to step it up if they are aiming to compete with their peers within the metaverse space such as Decentraland & Sandbox and be recognized as a contender.

Moreover, to compete against Facebook, Amazon or other mega-platforms, they may ambitiously be going after, it is an ambition light years away.

Earth2 is still a startup in its infancy and hopefully learning and growing into a toddler pass the teethering issues and into adulthood. We at E2Economist believe the potential is there. Let’s hope Earth2 has the capacity to realize it.

Though little hope exist that E2 will manage the next release any better.

THEREFORE, ALWAYS BE CAREFUL WHEN INVESTING IN EARTH2 AND ONLY INVEST MONEY THAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOSE.

E2Economist will always try to shine as much light as possible to support the E2 Investor.
