    As 16,000,000 beta player. Dust is a never ending list of cheap tactics? No no, as a player who has been there since Feb, cheap tactics are not the norm. Although for weak players yes. Looking for an advantage because when they go One on one they cannot hold their own. What there is are players who must look for advantages over other players. Red line tanks, red line forge guns, basically any I can see you, you can't see me deal. MCC snipers, melee glitch, etc. We have all seen it. Also the lag is crazy in some pc and FW. I find the cheap tactics in dust only last as long as it takes for the dev team to fix it. That being said, players who don't try the flavor of the month will continue to become a better player then those exploiter of the game. Exploits get fixed, you can't fix a garbage player looking for the next cheap tactic.

    Oh man this is wonderful to read about. I can't wait to get stuck into eve soon.

    problem is Dust 16 .vs. 16 mechanics made it possible for one really small corp with elite players (teamplayers) to fight most of the EON battles and win them. Corps like STB and Zion who have 10x the players couldnt bring their numbers advantage into the equation. CCP needs to fix this. Game can be great but they're holding it back.

    I'm sorry but you have no clue what you are talking about, we have always each fought our own fights. If anyone is sort then we step up to support each other. Don't state false opinions as makes you look stupid. We would all like larger than 16v16 battles but to suggest that the game should pander to the zerg mentality is ridiculous. The lowest common denominator should never rule game design, it would be shortsighted and an insult to the game CCP has said they want to create.

    cmon broseph, now ur gonna act like TP didnt play in every important eon important battle? GTFOH. no ones saying u made the mechanics like they are but to imply more players than that is some kind of zerg is 1) stupid and 2) hurts the games progress. u like the mechanics because they cater to how u like to play, no one is saying ur the devil because of it but if CCP doesnt get its head out of its ass and soon Dust wont have enough players left to matter. in 2010 MAG put 256 total players in huge battles and the fact that 16 guys can hold planets in Dust isnt remotely new eden. u havent been here long enough apparently.
  • Cookie_Stein - October 26, 2013 2:43 p.m.

    I don't normally reply to 13 yr olds that obviously failed english but here goes... "now ur gonna act like TP didnt play in every important eon important battle" Cause they didn't, we make no apologies for knowing how to fight a war, we support each other when needed, we don't have A/B/C team like everyone else and that is what allows us to do this... "EoN won the vast majority of all its battles, successfully defending 8 out of every 10 attacks launched against it " and "the FEC launched more than 100 different attacks on EoN-controlled districts on the first day of the war". Want to try and claim TP was in all of those? Me thinks you lack an understanding of what an Alliance is. "to imply more players than that is some kind of zerg" I said I/we would love bigger battles, I replied to the implication that just throwing more bodies at something gets you somewhere, the subject of the article shows that to be false. You really want to see US throw 128 ppl at someone, really? lol see ya on PS2. "Dust wont have enough players left to matter. in 2010 MAG put 256 total players in huge battles and the fact that 16 guys can hold planets in Dust isnt remotely new eden" We've all played MAG and bad clans that all they had going for them was the numbers to zerg got stomped there as well. Dust has never been in a place yet where it could feasibly support bigger than 16v16 fights, the player base isn't there yet. To suggest that will boost concurrent numbers, well thank god you're not on the dev team with that fail idea. "u havent been here long enough apparently." lol mkay...who are you?
  • Draz - October 26, 2013 4:17 p.m.

    youre implying the people ur insulting are 13 yrs old but ur the one getting mad over a it. and if you know anything about MAG you'd know the same clans that dominated sabotage were not the same ones that dominated Acquisition or Domination, and its the reason ur logic here fails. But please tell us more about how you dominated a game no one is actually playing.
  • Cookie_Stein - October 26, 2013 4:42 p.m.

    *sigh* I guess debate and conversation truly is dead...if you have a point please let me know.
  • Draz - October 26, 2013 4:50 p.m.

    no, no point.......especially since when the going got tough u guys and TP wasnt available you just locked ur own districts by attacking them with alt corps. thats knowing how to fight a war? pfffft.
  • Cookie_Stein - October 26, 2013 5:07 p.m.

    "when the going got tough"? You are joking aren't you? A 80+% win record kind of speaks for its self. Guess I'm the defender of TP now...they would 5 cap teams in 2 mins then have 10 guys leave and go onto the next match for crying out loud and finish the win with one squad, I think they earned the 2 day break they took afforded by in game mechanics. You sound very sad and bitter over all of this. Did we take your stuff?
  • Draz - October 27, 2013 2:40 a.m.

    actually ur the one sounding sad and bitter insulting people over a videogame. Try answering the question. Did EON lock ur own districts or not?
  • Antares4 - October 27, 2013 10:56 a.m.

    yes mr pr guy who sux at the game tell us..did EON lock districts or not?
  • Cookie_Stein - October 27, 2013 noon

    You need to lose something to be sad and bitter. No EoN as a whole did not lock any districts, after the first wave of attacks (which lasted 2/3 days) TP did lock districts (as I clearly said above) to go back on the attack. This is common knowledge to anyone who paid attention to the forum at the time or was involved in anyway in this player generated event.
  • Draz - October 27, 2013 1:18 p.m.

    common knowledge? go back on the attack? ur excusing cheap tactic everyone vilified delta force for becuz ur alliance did it. lamesauce.
  • Cookie_Stein - October 27, 2013 1:33 p.m.

    Yes and yes. Dust has been a never-ending list of cheap tactics, last tournament was won with one...what are you new? "lamesauce" would go rather nicely with your lame duck.
  • Salspire - October 27, 2013 3:41 a.m.

    Just to say that your top alliance exists and has potential partially due to lag ability. Majority of your players play saying we are the best. But thing that moves everything is lagging, and it is hard for those who stand to lose. So on upcoming updates all top-lag corporations of Dust will be gone because there will be no more lags to help you maaaaaaaaaaaaddaaafaaaakaaaaaa!!!! (Greetings from Moody)
  • Cookie_Stein - October 27, 2013 11:54 a.m.

    Dust uses servers, there is no peer to peer connection. Invalid point is invalid.
  • SpadesSlick - October 25, 2013 1:12 p.m.

    things like this are one of the reasons I love video games so much.
  • Doctalen - October 25, 2013 12:58 p.m.

    Moar EVE/Dust stories please, they are intriguing :)
