  1. A daily charge would be pretty hilarious if it was based on total number of TU's. Pretty sure I would go through a few billion quanta in a week.
  2. Better suggestion. Once a week during prime time in russia for one hour, the market area becomes a pvp zone with a 10 minute warning. This problem will sort itself out in one week.
  3. Not enough pvp, duh. If we were allowed to hunt the mining people across every planet and burn them out of every hex then we would have a lot more people logging in to grind.
  4. I would guess a decent amount of us poking around with amusement at the forums here have actually stopped playing daily. Including you and me. As it is right now i'm not sure "diggy diggy hole in space" would have us screaming back into the game en mass. Digging and mining was not the greatest fun loop on the ground, in space it would also get old pretty fast. Especially since the mechanic to do so would not likely change much. They could eliminate the digging portion and just have us find higher tier ore in zones (that you could camp or patrol) as fully ready to be mined ore-r
  5. I hear your pain, I really do. But let's be realistic. Who are you going to pvp right now?
  6. Back when we were playing 8-16 hours a day we toyed with the idea of putting up MTI billboards on all the Sanctuary spaceports that told new players (Get in, Plop Down your free TU, Get out!, You're welcome -MTI). You are better off deleting your free TU and using that time to mine surface ore or unclaimed tile ore on Alioth until you have the money/resources gathered to get away from there even. Sanctuary is a trap. Long ago my bud and I wasted our whole first week there till we got evacced to Madis (Thank you Thunderblaze) and never looked back.
  7. Less about the company, more about the process. It's good to know how these things work and then see what a game like DU does with its own product. The video is just a heads up to the warning signs of what could happen. So pay less attention to what is said in public forums by PR people and pay close attention to what the company actually does with both it's workforce and pricing model.
  8. The problem is not that each weapon system requires a separate gunner usually. The problem is there is nobody to sit in all the chairs. If you are looking for pvp regardless though I would give DU a hard pass. The game is just not designed to make that fun.
  9. Lets just say DU is getting F to F- in everything but Mining. In mining it is marked absent. Maybe a C- for ship building, neither game is great at it but for completely different reasons. Because Medium fighters are the current meta. For a capital sized ship you could make 4 fighters and you would only need 2 of them to take a capital ship. Armor plating and turrets have a long way to go currently. They work, just not great. If they ever get the ship lock-lasers, torpedo and missle mechanic working properly then I see large ships having a huge purpose as carriers or artil
  10. During a pvp event 2 weeks ago I lost my fighter ship at one point, my ship exploded around me and my chair flew out of the ship with me attached as explosions and debris went in all directions. I got out of my chair and pulled out my grenade launcher and started firing in anger at the ships engaging each other all around me. *FOOM* Miss *FOOM* Miss *FOOM* MASSIVE EXPLOSION as the ship flying past me turned into confetti from the grenade I lobbed into the cockpit connects. I stared dumbfounded at the screen...Poor bastard didnt know what hit him One of the people watching
  11. No real NDA for Starbase, even streaming is allowed. There really is no comparing SB to DU right now as far as player numbers. In origin there are a lot more players in the area than almost anywhere in DU, period. May not sound like a big deal until you realize that Starbase is a CLOSED ACCESS ALPHA. FRICKING daily I am getting guild members popping into discord who have been absent for weeks, wondering "where everybody is?!?" They havent been on for weeks or months sometimes and they wanna know where everybody went.
  12. Hey as long as we no skin in the game we can watch the schadenfreude unfold.
  13. Is this like ducktales where they let the guy who regularly crashes the planes fly so that he can crash the broken plane since he has the most experience crashing planes?
  14. People always forget what day it is.
