And people wonder why the EVE community is regarded as one of the worst.

Why are people so eager to see DUST fail?


Who knows why people want dust to fail, its a new idea thats never been done before. Everyone just likes to ***** about everything. If it works and CCP does a good job, the game could be amazing and both games combined could bring in a more immerse experience. It would be great if eventually dust members and eve members will be able to walk next to each other and interact, it just expands the game to the next level. Who wouldn't want that to be a huge success? I applaud CCP for having big balls. This has the potential to be Epic.

Any news on how the economics of the Dust are going to work?

Like - pod pilots hiring dusties?

I assumed that was how it was going to play out, with an up front charge for the game and then ingame currency being decided on by how good your dual-analogue skills are.

Better skills = more ISK
More ISK = better 'gear'
better 'gear' = more options (like using tanks/aircraft/night vision)
More options = more potential contracts
More contracts = higher reputation

I always felt with this model, the game addictiveness formula would work - without it, hard to understand why this game would be addictive.

The basic formula as I understand is something like this:

(skill/expectation) X (time/exponential reward) = addictive

I can't wait for the beta coming from MAG(FPS) that's how I heard about EVE and Dust. The concept CCP have for Dust is hot MAG had the same concept except the Developer for MAG couldn't afford to push the original vision they had.

The most important thing CCP have to make sure is THE GUNS HAVE TO SHOOT RIGHT. Also those orbital strikes can not be OP'd. If the game plays smooth and the guns shoot right they will have a hit. If not use MAg as an example of what not to do. Horrible servers and the guns still don't work right killed that game went from 20,000 people on daily to now around 3,000 to 5,000 people on Sad

If i can't jettison them into space, i'll load up an ITTY 5 full of the little dust bunnies and self destruct that puppy 2000 KM off their destination planet.

That's right, your first day dust bunny, and you spent all your iskies buying my ticket and your guns and ammo which you won't get to use... see ya back at the medical bay bunnie boy.

I couldn't see how CCP would let this game just fail. It would be horrid to have it fail, the impact on EVE would turn to crap and it would make CCP look really stupid. Not to mention the waste of time and money would be enormous. I couldn't see how people wouldn't be attracted to this game. A lot of people will at least try it being that its not a $60 game, so people will say "Eh 20$, **** it, lets see how it goes". CCP is entering a market where FPS is all over the place but this FPSMMO will be entirely different. Even now MAG stands as its own, maybe not the best in the world anymore, but its still pretty much considered a different playstyle, so deciding on playing MAG or CoD wouldn't be, what game has the coolest graphics and guns, its totally playstyle. Dust will be an Epic MAG created by developers that have clearly made an already epic game, plus linking those 2 together? Own?

Beta please, k thx bai.

My welcoming plan is to kill as many noobies as possible. Then when they ask what happened?!? My response will be:

The logs show nothing.

Good Stuff Colonel I have a question who is the target Audience CCP wants to play dust??? Is it the Wii COD crowd, or are they looking for the intellectual FPS players who like team based games with objectives. This is the one thing that has me concerned who are they targeting???

My son age (11) hates EVE and loves COD he doesn't want to think just shoot and kill so who is the audience for Dust????

^ This.

TBH, if the price is "right" (and CCP does something *AMAZING* with the winter expansion [e.g. Trinity Shocked]) I might pick it up...

I intend to give Dust a go when it comes out...

I expect I shall still sneer at them all when I'm flying around in Eve, but that won't stop me from being an inverse-snob when I'm playing Dust.

There's a reason they call it Dust, because that will be the only thing that's moving ingame when it gets released.

I'm pretty sure I read in the eve mag that orbital strikes and any interaction other than sharing corps and alliances between dust and eve players(pretty much comms) is on the "high wishlist" you won't actually be trading resources and fighting to help your space brethren. Dust will also by a pay to win game. Ammo. Weapons. Gear. Premium content. The works.

I'll be trying dust out but id much prefer it on the pc. We'll see how the ps3 and pc balances out if they will be linked. But yeah premium content for rl money. Sigh. ugh
