  1. So you didn't do any work, Provided any data nor did anything to back up any claim you made so far. Just spewing your opinion, own inceredulity, flame/troll others without data/proof. Keep going man, you're hilarious Now some orgs "obviously scammed numbers" - again a pointless and useless claim just to be toxic. Define "obviously scammed numbers" and please provide data of actual, real and definitive alts which are definitely 100% there to boost numbers
  2. You didn't provide any data, you simply stated your (wrong) opinion No one defended themselves here aka "I invited those ppl because...." so by your logic no one did anything wrong anyway. So where's the point in this post then That's a strawman, not proof. You didn't provide any data on anything. Just because someone doesn't own the game doesn't automatically make him an alt to boost numbers
  3. Again. WHAT are you referring to man. Link it. Then we could talk about it. Just spewing some allegations won't help you much. Where do I benefit? What have I done? What strange things?
  4. As I said. Dunno what you're referring to because there's rly nothing THAT strange going on
  5. Deception will always be a thing in DU. And, if it gets out of control, then NQ steps in. And did in the past. But I honestly can't see anything unusual in the top 20 (read: anything noteworthy or a huge scandal which will shine a bad light on du because of those horrible, horrible alt accs)
  6. Where are those 500 fake accs. Proof or it didn't happen xD Oh and by all means. Ppl will find out very quickly if an org is active, does shit and actually has that many members or if it's fake
  7. Beta is still very long time away though..... I have some but I don't want to give them to strangers who ask for free stuff. Gl finding someone
  8. Imho nothing should be sold for rl money (except maybe customizeable appearances). It is p2w if you can just buy a unit which helps you "defend" indefinitly by just hiding on some moon and bring all your stuff there which then cant be taken/Destroyed by anyone else. Also. Its only semantics so who cares xD
  9. Then please don't "beat" me up ingame with your market skills either. Cause That's pvp too and I can't defend myself. And it's not fun for me
  10. There are 0 sanctuary tiles on alioth. Also, buying them for RL money would go against their p2w ideology. STUs are used on MSA, not ASA
  11. I doubt you know what's fun for me or not, tyvm. Du isn't wow, it's more like eve in that regard. Some can't even hit a frigate there even though it's leveled too....and some hit it very well. Why? Because this kind of pvp isn't so much about player skill (hitting, doing dmg, all that stuff) but more about tactics and understanding mechanics to use them to get an edge. Everything else is leveled ofc, because it's only computed values. And skills or levels don't rly add that much to anyone char either. It's not wow, again. Skills give you an edge and an advantage, but never stop anyone from hitting you entirely. Non issue. If you don't want to train such skills, fine. But thats not an argument in any way. I for example won't have ANY building, mining, crafting skills (if I play DU At all that is). And plenty of ppl will have combat skills too because they want to experience stuff and not fall asleep from boredom (bam, thats my assumption xD)
  12. Omg run, a big eve knower here who outsmarted everyone here xD Circle jerking meanwhile, so I won't respond anymore even tho you'll see it as a "win"
  13. there are lots of EVE players here All we can say here: watch the videos about their server tech demo and the latest AMA (podcast). Everything else is NDA. CPU with AVX is the most important stuff you need and a good internet connection helps too ofc As in EVE - new orgs can ofc make it, even when founded later. The focus in DU is heavily on teamwork so an org is always a good idea your money, your choice. Won't give you any advice here. Just keep in mind that you can build everything
  14. After release, yes. In alpha you have to pay for it. Once there is beta, someone might give you a key to play the beta though
  15. Not really needed to do that when there are lots of resources in the ground - depends all on balancing that. I don't really like respawning resources either, doesn't help the game at all imho and only crashes prices, doesn't add any gameplay and only may increase botting.
  16. DU has a homemade server system as others already said - with such come some limitations ofc (only lock and fire, no simulated bullets, no "real" physics calculations - stuff might float if you just mine underneath it for example, and so on). But this allows for massive amounts of players - you can't have both imho. Millions of players with simulated bullets won't work well - see EVE for that. EVE did massive battles first with 5k + ppl shooting each other. It worked, but was slow af (TIDI). And this only worked 15years ago because it's lock and fire too with no simulated bullets. see EVE again - all player run too. I don't really see a problem if some players/orgs have a monopoly on something. That's just how it is in RL too.... It's WAY BETTER imho if everything is controlled by players and NPCs don't impact the market in any way - makes up for interesting gameplay (scamming, playing the markets, earning money with margin trading,....) the game doesn't and shouldn't deal with that. Don't like what someone builds? shoot it - talk to him - ignore it. Why should the game care if you like something or not. Do something about it yourself. This isn't something any game should do imho As I already pointed out, the server tech itself has limitations (thus allowing massive amounts of ppl). For example if you mine underneath a mountain it'll just float and not come crashing down. Same with ships - if you shoot a hole in a ship it's still one entity and even "detached" parts act as if it's still connected. But for flying physics it's a different story - watch the vids and have a look at the HUD there - there's drag, gravity, thrust, cross section,..... lots of variables to consider when building and flying a ship. In atmo or in space PVP (or combat) is one main pillar of DU. See https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/01/30/our-toughts-on-territory-protection-mechanics/ for more info about safezones and what they do. You can claim hexes of any planet by using Territory Control Units, thus enabling RDMS there for your org. If you manage to take more than one tile you may protect the central one with a shield too, so if others attack you, they first have to take out the surrounding TCUs. How this all works has to be seen later on, for now all we know is: CvC comes in january. The risks of doing PVP not only involves losses but also may include being excluded from player run markets, bounties on your head, ppl not selling you stuff, other large orgs (police orgs or w/e) hunting you and destroying your bases and so on. Players make the laws here - there is no game mechanic/law system besides the safe zone. It's all up to players
  17. https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/01/30/our-toughts-on-territory-protection-mechanics/ You can mine and trade in safezones but as always: risk vs reward. You won't find any high tier material inside safezones only the basic stuff
  18. Pointless topic rly with AvA pushed back to post release. Maybe better to come back to this in 2years
  19. If a prison ever was introduced I would jail everyone I see just for fun just to prove my point of how awful such a system would be. And believe me, I wouldn't be the only one to do that (others may even don't because they want those tears). Only because an org is big or has some reputation doesn't mean they should get access to unique mechanics. Either ALL ppl have access to something or NOONE. That's probably even a worse idea than a prison Very fun to imprison ppl and holding them off from playing for which they PAY MONEY. Kkthxbai
  20. I rly don't know where to start here. If I'm paying some company (xolla) and they don't resolve my issue after 3 days then I would call them and escalate it to someone who is in charge. If they don't do anything after some calls, then just retract the payment (call your bank). And just in case call my lawyer to be on the safe side.
  21. Sounds like all those boring, useless, random, unfun, Theme Park mmos out there. If du ever gets there, I'll burn all my accs for good and leave it for good. This is not what du is about and it's not what will be in the game (npcs) for a long time after release.
  22. Then you didn't read the devblogs or watched their videos. Standings are about your org btw. But believe what you want, feel free to be wrong xD
  23. That's why rdms is way better. In eve you can't even properly control rights for ppl living in a wh because there are only 4 roles and you don't want a random newb accessing your starbase fuel. DU is NOT eve and we get tools to make it easier. That's why eve sucks so hard and ppl get burn out, bevause the tools there suck And the following Wall of text. Read up on AMA and MSA zones. That's like 2000000000000% better than any sec status bs. And I always stated that for all I care the AMA/MSA can be a whole system for new ppl to test the game and see if they like it or not. The rest of your post is only about eve and really has no impact whatsoever on du because you're talking about different things here
  24. Only when the servers are up. There is no offline tool. You can check uptimes here https://www.dualthegame.com/en/server-status/
  25. They have had that in mind with their ks campaign, dunno if it's still a thing though. It would be very cool to have it but it's not something you can "just add" into the game. You need very different mechanics, UI, controld,... for VR
