I was able to almost break-even on my investment with my time as a miner, and should have $15 or so in PED along with $5 in equipment still on my character. Keep in mind I only played for 2 weeks to a month or so.
I can't help but see this game and think about how much more successful the game would be if it was actually a good game.
I can see why it can be addicting, but the same can be said about RuneScape... neither are really -good- games.
I would love to see a modernized, true action based game like this.
