  1. If you insist of only being paid in DACs then YOU are forcing players to buy them. Then YOU are the one to blame that NQ makes money with YOUR work. Simply be paid with money and buy the DACs from the market Problem solved. You will never get rl money for your work in-game....called rmt you know Edit: works fine in Eve. Someone paid your sub, I see no problem there. NQ didn't make any extra profit except for those 2 or 3 euros per DAC, which is fine cause you can play for free and the other guy only converted real money in in-game money
  2. I think they have good people at NQ, they will figure things out
  3. Oh and btw in DU it's not about content in the way a wow player sees it.... It's about development of deeper and deeper mechanics of the game (ressources like breathing, food, life support on ships, ramming, new modules, new techiques for building, new meshes for using in constructs, new .....)
  4. Single Shard Servers and Quality of Service If you don't wanna pay, then just make enough money through grinding/mining/selling stuff to pay for DACs

    I'd take a mouse....or Fly....for spaistuff Or the infamous blob!
  6. In the kickstarter video they talk about ai but those would only function while you are online.
  7. Actually it's all about closed beta....
  8. yup....20 DAC = 20 Months for 100€......good shot imho But my finger itches....it wants to click ruby
  9. but....but.....but I will ruin peoples day and fun in DU oh and BTW: on kickstarter: "You won't have to buy the game itself, but there will be a monthly subscription to be able to enter the game. However, it will be possible to play for free by activating a 30 days time coupon (Dual Access Coupon) that you can buy on the in-game markets. You can also buy a DAC from Novaquark to sell it on the in-game market in exchange of in-game currency." Perfect system. Can we now PLEASE stop those pesty topics?

    Bunch Of Ideas

    Plus this idea is completely against the spirit of a sandbox (like peace mode, no scam, no avoxing, no rapecage and so on). It's not YOUR choice if you have an encounter, it's up the pirates/bad boys choice. You can avoid it or render it useless by figuring out mechanics against it though but bad boys should and will have opportunities to kill you. Like you have the opportunity to whiteknight and kill them
  11. And ship fuel is mentioned in the construction video

    1) terrible. It takes long because that's the point. You need members who are dedicated to build something big 2) funny 3) war and allies will happen even w/o a system but it's discussable 4) hmm more diversity, interesting 5) I'm sure there will be plenty of weapons 6) no. Just no. In a sandbox? No. Exploitable and very bad 7) think this will come at some point
  13. You really have to watch your language on the internet, salt everywhere. Especially from people who have no clue what they are talking
  14. Hahaha possibly, I get money for free to waste on ze gang \o/ Every time I see the word mate it reminds of that hilarious story where someone thought mate was insulting.
  15. I don't even know where to start..... wow. just wow. Why should that PLAYER BUILT WEAPON FROM RESSOURCES THEY GATHER cost 1000times more? Sure there will be a bit of a drift in prices but just look at EVE markets - a titan costs like 50bil incl equipment. For like 3 Years now. You obviously don't understand markets or mix something really badly. I strongly suggest you READ my post again. Plex seller has lots of ingame money. So what? He cannot achieve anything with it, because HE IS BOUND TO BUILDING TIMES, RESSOURCE GATHERING (of others - he buys them) and FOR F**** SAKE: he is NOT born with an inherent talent to build/maneuver a ship! Yes he has more money than you, but guess what, with enough time and intelligence you can even make MORE money than a PLEX seller ever does! There are plenty of billionaires in eve who never bought anything - they just play a lot and are SMART about buying/Selling stuff. Do you want to punish or limit the online time of people too? Because a dude without work and living off social welfare playing DU 24/7 will definitely have a LOT of money....more than a plex seller I also f****** up the markets in EVE. Alone. Because I could. So what? happens in a sandbox, who cares? that's the POINT of a sandbox! You said it: 30 (!!!!!) people. Who cares in a world with thousands of players? Don't, just DONT, compare a theme park mmo with like 500 players to a sandbox. Don't That will be a legit tactic. Even without selling plex. What do you think big organizations can (and at some point will) do? They have the manpower to mine 24/7. They will build ships 24/7. They will rapecage you 24/7. No need for selling plex. only manpower and dedication. If you can't figure out a way to win (diplomacy, bribes, spies, terror, scams,...) then....just leave and build up anywhere else? enough?!
  16. Austria here, so maybe I start an organization followed by germans....oh wait

    It's not all about server load and computation, it's about how hard or easy they implement it for players. Take KSP (yeah whole other idea and deep mechanics, I know): thousands of players needing to understand orbits first before they even manage to get to a station, manage their velocities, trajectories, insertion burns, brake burns and so on....that's kinda hard at first. I see no problem in implementing a much easier system which adds something to the game - all good with that. Making it too hard and speaking of orbits with all that includes, as I mentioned, would be not good whereas making orbits too easy and it adds simply nothing - that was all I said. When someone writes about an idea, people should consider EVERY aspect of it and I just mentioned a problem when the idea would go to deep.
  18. You do know that there are conversion rates? I agree on the fact that, for a Brazilian guy 15€ is way more money than for an European guy because of salary and life cost issues. Now you could argument with: so this P2P rate has to be lower! But guess what would happen then And besides: pc gaming is not a human right. When the company wants to charge 15€ EVERYWHERE ON THE WORLD then you have to pay or you don't play. With PLEX you ignore one huge fact: players (be it EVE or DU) are not born with an understanding of the game mechanics. Lets take EVE: sure you can invest 5000€ to buy PLEX and have like 900bil isk. No Problem there. BUT: - a new player can't fly titans and kill everyone (because of skills) - even if he buys a character with that money (for lets say 100bil) and THEN buys a titan to kill everyone - he dies horribly. - he just has not the understanding of the game (because he never played) and he doesn't have the skills (hard and soft) to do so A veteran player could invest money to speed up his gameplay (as I do - I hate pve grinding). So what? What do you think will happen when I just bling out my ships or buy super-uber-extreme-mega weapons? I die horribly. Why? Because it's a MMO - for you: a massive MULTIPLAYER online game. ONE person (even 1000) would die horribly because of THOUSANDS of other players.....
  19. Yeah I had that written and open for like an hour while I read articles about the eve servers.... didn't realise I read for an hour \o/
  20. Well it was directed at aeon but whatever buddy, idc And again: don't assume things that never were said Mr. Narcissist
  21. Ok so you will run one server for DU then? You know that this doesn't work right? You have no clue what SINGLESHARD means do you? People these days....posting nonsense everywhere
