    Lethys got a reaction from Borb_1 in Dear Novaquark, please reconsider your combat system.   
    Not having ramming imgame isn't because of weapons of mass destruction but because you can kill large ships with cheap ones with nearly no effort, except manpower. 
     
    Not having automated turrets and only a tuned down version (less dmg and less accuracy) isn't because of fast moving ships but because of balancing issues.
     
    If ppl can build bombs. They will do it. And at some point, no matter the initial cost, it'll be cheap so they will just throw them around.

    Lethys reacted to Peregrin in Dual Universe Sleepers   
    As the name implies, Dual Universe Sleepers is a temporary initiative: it will cease, or at least change, when we awake, i.e. according to NQ's current lore, at Release.

    I'll keep making daily notes for my own use but will then switch to my "real" original project: collecting and recording knowledge and history through an ingame library with ingame readable "books" (programming boards with screens and buttons, most probably), open to public use in a safe area.
     
    Details are still in the works but there will be books, as many of them as possible, from different writers and in several languages.

    This is the first iteration and Implementation of alpha 3. They maybe expect this to be a bit unstable so they only do a 3h test to see if the servers hold. When everything goes well they might extend the test.
     
    Normal test schedule are weekend tests (96h long) every week

    Neither do they, a sub model is needed for du anyway. Eve was dead since 2005, still going tho.....and WAY more successful than any other MMO too. 
     
    Buying dacs for rl money give Nq more money than a sub. Then you can sell them on the ingame markets either via direct sell (fullfilling buy orders from ppl at a considerably lower price) or Setting up a sell order for a higher price, but you have to wait until ppl buy them. 
    This will ofc change buy/sell margins and other adapt their prices too. Thus prices for dacs decrease because of more supply. Thus getting you less and less quanta for each dac. 
     
    After say a month you sold everything and then you got 2billion quanta out of it. Now what? How is that p2w? What do you think you can "pay" in order to "win"?

    wow ..
     
    This guy is clearly on a path to try and get himself kicked because he is breaking a number of forum rules. No doubt he will spin it as being silenced for revealing the fact that "DU is a P2W game" .. without ever obviously presenting a single piece of fact that supports that claim. Maybe it would be best to just ignore this thread from here. He will try and provoke but will either run out of steam or see the thread locked (at best).

    Something like that wouldn't work, then orgs would just have their miners not officially join so they get the solo buff.

    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

    You do realize the community portal has been on "phase 1" of it's development since it launch right, and it's not priority 1 for NQ at the moment?
     
    I don't see how this is an issue... Regardless if it gets "fixed" people will still join the biggest org in numbers... But that doesn't mean jack until the game release and those orgs can prove to be stable and active.
     
     
    That's why I voted for #2
     
    Let people join and worry about it later.... But if you have DEFINITE proof that orgs are DELIBERATELY inflaitng their numbers by creating ALTS ... Point it to NQ... They'll do a investigation just like they did with DSI, NG, UL and mmtheboss...

    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)

    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)

    The only time I've mentioned you besides this thread was to say you "don't have any license to disparage people for complaining about something," which I still stand by. I hope you didn't find that block-worthy, because my god, that's blowing it way out of proportion. Either way, thanks for giving me more content.
    Genuinely, this sort of thought process makes you one of the most unlikable people I've ever had the displeasure of sharing a community with and is absolutely a minority opinion.
    You clearly aren't tolerating it, because if you truly tolerated PVP, you wouldn't make comment after comment after comment slamming PVP and those who enjoy it. You're sort of missing the "without interference" aspect of tolerance.

    Frankly, at the end of the day, you'll just feed the system you so vehemently hate on; and we'll all be sure to hear you complain about it when it happens.

    @Daphne Jones As a person with a "mental Illness" I find you throwing the term "Mental Illness" around like you do VERY hurtful! You are "hurting" me by throwing those words around! I am a high functioning autistic person I have Asperger's Syndrome. I DON'T PVP! But when i do I am not as good as others because of my "mental Illness" which causes me to be slower on reacting in PVP situations! I formerly request that you don't throw the words "mental Illness" around OR label the completely NORMAL people that DO PVP with those words! Those words are very demeaning! I know for a fact that I am NOT the only disabled person playing DU, these other players may take your words very hurtful as I do!!
