What Do They Tell Me?
They give information on a variety of different things, such as the following:
These events will tell you when you have received CPs or when CPs have been removed from your account.
These events tell you when credits have been added or removed from your account. This can be when players send you credits, or you send others credits, or when automated procedures remove or add credits to your account.
These are events that do not fit the other categories here. This includes when you start or finish an action, increased a skill level, increased an XP level, entered another entity, when you stop travelling and others.
These events will tell you when you loose HP, gain HP or when your overall max HP has increased.
These events tell you how much XP you have obtained from specific activities, and it will tell you which activities they are.
