@CCP_CmdrWang Hey I'm wondering if you'll be able to use mercenaries to fight over player-run outposts. Thanks! Excited about #Dust514

@ruzihm Yes, that is an integral part of DUST514.

Wondering if he thought the player was referring to POCOs instead of outposts.

I don't always post on the forums, but when I do, I post with my main.

Are you sure it refers to player run outpost in EVE and not something else? All I've read indicates DUST is about planetary combat only, so I'm a bit sceptical and your source isn't exactly specific about what it refers to.

Witty comments should be posted over there somewhere --------------->

The player-run outposts he's referring to are planetary outposts.. We would have heard a major announcement if that was one of the plans for DUST-EVE integration.

If it happens why would we protest? Anything that removes the grind from Sov should be an improvement and think of all the screams of frustrated rage when stations can be destroyed and we fry those Dust mercs with their target.

I think you mixed it into Dust's own outposts.

If dust 'groups' can take a majority of planets in a system how could someone else claim SOV? Because of moons?

Dust probably isn't that complex though, it's on a console after all.

On a related note, are they going to have automatic squading?

I'm actually looking forward to DUST since I have a mostly useless PS3 gathering... dust (lol). This would be pretty cool but what would be even cooler as an EVE player is if we could blow up structures the mercs are fighting in...

EVE Corp 'Our contract is ended'
DUST Corp 'But we've almost taken over the station!'
EVE Corp 'Not quite...'
*BOOM*

I feel confident speculating that Dust devs dont much at all about EVE and could easily be confused as to what an "out post" is.

How could they take over outposts that orbit a planet while on the ground? Should use some common sense before putting on your tinfoil hat. If anything it will have to do with DUST outposts on the planets or something to do with PI.

Am I the only one who sees imminent griefing using orbital strikes from EVE players who will be pissed if Dust gets released as a PS3 exclusive with micro-transactions?

Just so you know, I'll probably abuse the hell out it.

They arent going to let us have much of an impact.

If they do were going grief the s--t out of the Dust players and they know it.

Chat channels for Dust 514 (both voice and text) are cross platform. You can log into them from either your console or your PC, so that EvE and Dust players can coordinate their efforts in real time. This is working fine in all the testing that's currently underway and been documented by third party media that have gotten a sneak peak.

And yes, outposts refer to planetary outposts - currently all the nullsec sov system relies on space structures, once Dust is released Alliances forced to obtain planet-based equivalents. Each game will rely on the other - alliances won't have a choice but to pay for or recruit mercernaries if they want to maintain their hold on a region.

what might be interesting is a mechanic by which the attacking force has to bring in blank clones and guns and semi dock at the station with a freighter. Then defend the freighter while takeing the station. The station defenders have a store of clones and guns, but if they run out the attackers win. If the defenders suicide in to kill the freighter the attackers loose. Would be an interesting mechanic, especially if it involved PI materials and make a ground war on planets worthwhile.

Keep in mind that DUST will run from the same server as EVE.
