I read many of the posts here. Including the negative ones. Its one thing to hate on a game if it actually sucks. But the reality of what Dust514 is compared to what our haters would like it to be are two different beasts. As someone who plays EVE(Praxis Initiative) and plays Dust, the misconceptions told by some of our members here is Incredible! So I have decided to my best ability to cover some(not all) of these misconceptions.
1. The game is going to fail and or crash hard? Well I got my PS3 for Christmas. Since that day Dust has been expanding and growing regularly. Even at my timezone I can log in and battle at 3,4,5 am and have no issues. Have seen many new players. A couple of my real life friends have actually started playing as well. Which is the opposite of what those haters with wishful thinking predict.
2. The game is not fun. Speak for yourself. Many people I know in game as well as in the real like this game alot. Some of my friends in my EVE corp play as well. We plan to operate a full DUST corp soon. We also plan to use Dust to our corps advantage. Whether it be in defence of some of our planetary holdings or in gaining new ones. We are already forming Dust alliances just for this venture.
3. The game controls are bad? Heh, this one made me laugh. Must have come from the tab and hotkey crowd :-D The ones who dont know how to aim :-D. Yes you actually have to take that target reticule and place it over the enemy! Difficult for those tab and hotkey people! Its all good, youll make easy headshots when im sniping :-D
4. Dust514 is only 8vs8? Well Dust at the moment has 32 player battle zones,16 per team. With multiple skirmishes taking place simultaneously. This game is quite fun.
Now that we have some of these misconceptions cleared. Would like to say "to each there own". I like Dust514 alot. I also like EVE alot. As well as Pirate101, Battlefield3, and Vanguard. I dont care if its a console game, PC game, or even a game on my smart phone. I play games for the fun and enjoyment of the title. I do not really care if its a MMORPG with its "tab and hotkey" design or if its a FPS where you actually have to learn to shoot! If its fun,enjoyable and addictive ill stay around.
Now to some of the people who hate on this game. You know who I am talking about! You are that guy who comes into a forum for a game and trash talks it. Tells everyone as though they should believe you just off of reputation alone how horrible the game is! But then has no real relative experience of the game you are talking about.
You know doing that just makes you special. At least be useful! Instead of trolling your trash, then repeating it.
