If they have an EVE CEO yes they can, but alliances have no visibility in DUST as of yet.


Do the EVE corp/alliance the Dust players belong to have to be enrolled in FW to OB?

Can't wait to dual box my Dust toon and EVE toon on the same machine!

Districts only popup on the overview if someone is at them. So it's actually really easy.

On another note, \o/ DUST 514.

:O I didn't know they were on the overview, probably because noone has had a real reason to go there. Thanks.

Does the damage multiplier on guns count for orbital strikes? Small guns on dreads, hit siege, wreck havoc!

When will Dust 514 be ported over to the PC?

And how, pray tell, will we as Capsuleers know when there's a battle taking place on a planet if not for the sudden satellite popping up on overview from a rival Capsuleer (potentially) beginning their bombing run?

For that matter, there should be a way for a Capsuleer to provide orbital bombardment without being notified before hand. I wouldn't mind helping out, especially in Faction Warfare, without having to know beforehand (impossible without word of mouth) that there's a battle going on. How are we to know that there is a battle there otherwise?

Considering it says (pretty much everywhere) that it's a PS3 exclusive, probably never.

I thought consoles didn't have keyboards?

Anyway, thanks for the heads up - we'll be in the smoke-filled scheming room thinking of ways to steal their stuff Lol



Actually I'm very curious about this. Perhaps I haven't had enough coffee yet, but how are dust players going to talk in local without a keyboard? Does dust use voice to text software? So confused on that one.

Otherwise though so pumped for you guys, I hope it's a success, though I have to wonder how much anybody outside of FW really cares about Dust.

Dust supports KB/M.

There is also the PS3 native keyboard thing that you type one letter at a time, but I'd rather throw the PS3 in a bathtub with me instead of that hassle.

Also, there is voice comms, haven't seen how well they work cross-platform, but I'm assuming it's just an extension of eve voice.

I am still waiting for the explanation why I can't just indiscriminately bombard the planets when I am forced to rely on some ******* beacon.

If a corporation currently has a Dust 514 CEO can it be moved to an EVE CEO?

I think playstations support keyboards and mice via USB. Also it appears there are some DUST-branded peripherals coming out.

Yes you can transfer the CEO from a DUST character to an EVE character and back again.

Somewhere in FW space:
EVE player: "Hey DUSTie, want some orbital support? Just 50 mil."
DUST player: "No thanks bro."
EVE player: "Ok. Well then pay me 50 mil anyway or I bomb you."
DUST player: "..."

Actually sounds kind of fun Lol

Will it be possible for a character to be both an EVE and a DUST character?

Will there be a client update to DUST on the PS3?
