  1. I just assume the mission nerf is for the wipe. If not then there needs to be an increase with the suggestions made above ^^
  2. check discord for announcement play other game
  3. Don't agree with the 1 month trail. Bots will destroy this game. You can already buy DACs from other players so buying a sub is already a thing once release hits.
  4. It costs basically nothing to attack the alien core and it can be put into lockdown within minutes is a bad design choice. Make the stakes higher, otherwise people will just continue to troll alien cores without having to put up a fight.
  5. Is the podcast going to be live?
  6. Wow, I didn't realize this was still going. Time for some replies I guess.
  7. I think alien cores should have their own weapons or some sort of gunner seat. Just don't see anyone trying to defend from inside the alien core. Only using ships to defend with.
  8. Ok, the mission nerf means new people coming into the game right now will have an extremely hard time getting schematics. Now if you wipe the game I think someone needs to look into possible price changes for the schematics. Not sure what they could be though.
  9. "eve is my favorite game so lets bring those features here" lol
  10. 1 - Seconds into the video we already see dog fighting and close quarters combat. You can only see this type of combat if you're less than 10km away from each other. Can't really imaging a fight over an alien core being this close. I don't see NQ showing off how true combat is. Just this glorified dogfighting and close quarters combat that they keep peddling to us. 2 - Gives off the feeling that the alien core is going to be armed with weapons and a big crew is going to defend it from the inside. Any PvP org wouldn't be using the alien core to shoot their weapons from because all the enemy has to do is shoot from one side and half the weapons wouldn't hit them. Everyone is going to use ships to fight with. I don't mind using the ships, just how the warfare is actually going to pan out. Maybe give the alien cores some special gunner seat to allow more guns to incentivize that vision from the video 3 - The description says Deckard and his crew go into hostile PvP space. Deckard is a true care bear and would never do such a thing. Although I can see him losing the station pretty quickly so that's probably spot on. The video had some good parts in it so I'll say that. Although this is an RP video and probably shouldn't be taken very seriously, it does get shown to new people so I think there's some responsibility in showing how dual universe actually works.
  11. Same could be said about you. Refusing to read or learn any counter-measure, just insulting the people responding to you. Enjoy your day.
  12. lol that warp drive was broken before NQ fixed it. People were able to warp instantly before getting shot so please don't bring that up as an example. Joke after joke from you. Also maybe your hauler guy just had someone on his ship, that's an exploit but I think NQ may have fixed it recently. That or someone is using a trajectory script on you and is flying like 20 SU ahead of you to setup an ambush.
  13. Try learning a valid strategy instead of expecting to go down a pipe and not die from pirates...
  14. I don't think people realize how easy it is to avoid pirates if you just fly outside the pipe. Sure you'll get caught once or twice but 9 times out of 10 you'll be safe. It's funny how people would rather just cry to NQ instead of actually learning a valid strategy to avoid pirates altogether. Everyone only has a 2 SU radar which isn't that far. If you're already 2 or 3 SU away from the planet and you haven't been noticed (and not going down the pipe), then essentially you're free.
  15. Damn I was just replying to another pvp bashing thread. Now I have to do it to another one? Like this magnificent other poster, Walter, just said, you can avoid it if you just fly outside of a pipe.
  16. How it is right now is fine and it's not even overpowered. Before people could just click warp and instantly get away from a pilot if they payed attention to the radar. There's been plenty of times before that warp update where I'd go to an asteroid, see a ship, get ready to engage, all to just see them warp away in an instant. The timer they implemented evened the odds for pirates. Now haulers have to use other strategies to avoid getting killed. It's not "crutch after crutch" like you're saying. You're saying this like now it's impossible for haulers or anyone for that matter to go into pvp space without getting killed. Re-read what I said regarding the past year being expensive for pirates. You can still go to an older asteroid in the pvp zone and be relatively safe. The other thing alot of people don't do is go out to asteroids with friends, they just go solo. There is no universe where a solo miner is going to fend off some pirates. Most pirates go out with friends and you will not be able to defend yourself. You need a defense crew to help you mine at the exotic asteroids if you want to get out alive. This is why the avoidance strategy is best for the solo player. Also most people just end up panicking and have no idea what to do in the event of a pirate attack.
  17. What a joke of a thread, honestly For the last year pirates have been overspending when it comes to PvP. When we'd go out to asteroids, 90% of the time it end up with us spending warp cells and fuel for absolutely nothing. And the time there was something, it was mostly a tiny throw away ship that nobody even cared about. When we actually got a whale, I'd say we absolutely deserve it. Even when we killed big mission runners in the past, those people were already making tons of quanta so that they could repurchase the ship they lost 10 times over. and alot of times we just sold it back to them so they could redo their mission route. The fact that you think pirating is point and click clearly shows that you know very little about it. Most of the skill comes through how good of a pilot you are and there is no script like you're suggesting out there that's going to help you with it. You need to come up with ideas to avoid pirates like other players do. There's plenty of people who have avoided pirates by using good escape strategies or just using a throw away ship that they don't care about.
