  1. We can compete with larger organizations in different ways. They may win in sheer numbers, but smaller organizations have the advantage of being more close knit and friendly. Most of us will play Dual Universe for fun, not for maximizing efficiency. Would you rather have a handcrafted ship from, let's say, Objective Driveyards (wink wink sponser me), or a generic ship from Generic Corp? To answer your question about raiding: raiding is hard, but some EVE players can tell you about how they 1v8'd due to specialized tactics. Good luck!

    LG or Benq gaming monitor?

    Depending on your budget, definitely the BenQ. It has every single advantage apart from a rather unwieldy size. Your GPU, however, may not be able to run it as its fullest potential.

    Just wanted to say Hi to everyone

    If you enjoy working a lot, you should try joining one of the many manufacturing corporations like Objective Driveyards or Vultures. See you on the battlegrounds!
  5. -TRY 1 "Don't touch that," the merchant warned as my hand neared the intricately designed sphere, with the cobalt-blue metal reflecting everything. "A priceless artifact from Earth," he continued, slightly annoyed that I didn't ask why. Obviously, I tried to grab it. Even inches away and through my gloved hands, I could feel the cold of the metal. The merchant, with all of his bionics and computer systems wired into him, knew this before I even came here. His gun was already in his hand under the counter and shot a slug of superheated plasma. -TRY 7 "Don't touch that," the merchant warned, and I immediately retracted my hand. He was a bit surprised and assumed his normal slightly-too-perfect smile. I wandered around the shop for other details I could glean. Dr. Chenski is literally going to murder me a million times if I don't do this, as he thinks cheating in a casual game of poker with "high" bets is unacceptable. Hard-ass. I'm wondering why such a high-class trader is on such a deadbeat research planet. The fruit here is to die for, but you can always export it. He's probably here to smuggle some illegal technology. Speaking of illegal technology, have you ever heard of a multiversal groundhog day device? That was the bet Dr. Chenski put in, as he was completely certain he'd win. He then figured out I won. And here we are, stealing an artifact older than anybody alive. I walked back to the device and asked what was so useful about it. "This 'just a damn sphere' you speak of contains all human records of a continent called 'Oo-star-lie-a.' That information is worth fighting wars over." He answered, proud of the fact. He took a sip of a drink that was just asking to be poisoned which gave me a rather nefarious idea. -TRY 8 A few hours earlier, I was surveying the area. I wondered where he even got the drink from, but I have all the time in the universe to find out. I saw him setting up his shop with a tent made of polished metal and white sheets, putting down a cup of something. I would tell you the several hours of boring waiting, but that doesn't deserve to be in the story journals of the legendary Yamada! As he is helping out another customer, I slip a paralytic agent into his drink that smelled faintly of citrus. There is no way this plan could fail, as it was foolproof. -TRY 16 Apparently, his bionics detected the poison. That's embarrassing. New plan: hack into his systems and turn off the bionics. It's genius, completely fail-proof. -TRY 917 I cannot hack. At all. I resorted to pressing random buttons and hoping they'd work- why? Why did I force myself to do this? Wait. I just had a completely, 100% foolproof idea that has no chance of failing. I fucking shot him. Then just took the artifact. Whatever, I did it on the first try which is quite impressive even for the legendary Yamada. -TRY 3059 Have you ever tried to play one of those ancient video games from Earth? There was something called "save-scumming," and I am definitely doing that right now. Have you ever murdered a galaxy-renown merchant who just so happens to keep such a dumb grudge? No? Just me? Well, trust me when I say this: it sucks. Constantly being on the run where you can't even take time to smell the roses or snort the drugs is no way to live. I want you to know I love you, but it all just has to end. I cannot live like this. -TRY 3060 Well, you can't suicide. I'm just going to let Chenski do whatever he wants. I can deal with that, probably. Update: Dr. Chenski says he was joking. He gave me a defective device that somehow worked, allowed me to install that defective device, and let me use the defective device to steal something from a merchant. Fuck you, Chenski. This is the legendary Yamada signing out.
  6. Hey Azure, you don't post much. Everything okay?

    Resources

    Corvus tells some great points. You can travel the planet's 60km circumference in less than 15 minutes with just ordinary airplane speeds. You can create high-powered ore detectors that will strip a planet of all its natural resources in a short amount of time. But let's face it, DU wants to mimic reality a bit. We will create massive farms for renewable resources such as bioplastics and mine asteroids for resources instead, and organizations will protect the land's natural beauty or do massive terraforming projects that will be heavily defended. Until DU adds these mechanics inevitably, there will be resource problems. But hey, it's just an alpha.
  8. If I need to explain this, I'm concerned.

    Wishlist of Eccentric Systems

    An arctic planet that used to be an ocean planet; the only place you can even think about inhabiting are the interesting caves formed because of the lunar tides pushing and shifting the ice over millennia, with the geothermal vents occasionally cracking the planet with bubbles of gas under extreme pressure.. It teems with alien organic life in these caves, with the few weak geothermal vents allowing these things to grow around. These spots are an oasis for life. On the surface, raging and frigid winds force anybody who was brave enough to not immediately go to the caves to reconsider. The winds throw giant icicles around as if it were dust, piercing metal and flesh with unnerving ease. So why would you go to this planet? Perhaps you're interesting in the surprising lack of hostile creatures, or want to export the mineral-rich water after processing to make some easy money. But this planet was built like a fortress, and it'd be near impossible to find somebody if you didn't have a map. Maybe that's why you want to manufacture questionable medication, or perhaps you're interested in the research you want absolutely nobody to know except you and your researchers. Now, why is this place an arctic planet? Because the icy atmosphere reflects almost all heat like a sparkling jewel in the cosmos. How it got this icy atmosphere is a mystery that nobody knows.
  10. You got my investments. Edit: You better have the DitF 02's giant ship thing.

    Can we stream it?

    If you're a new player, you'd know this would be cherry picked (and it is). This type of game with an alpha NDA creates a very bad kind of hype. It shrouds it in negative energy and makes people wonder what is going on in development. The dev logs (something made from the devs) look awesome and so does the Alpha features showcase. From an outside perspective, it makes you wonder what the hell is going on and why is there an NDA when the game already looks great and seemingly functions. We (the "in-the-know" community) know why there is an NDA, and we know it's beginning to hurt the game. I love Dual Universe, but this just seems like a really strange move. Still love you, JC ❤️
  13. You probably shouldn't link stuff that associates you with mislabeling.
  14. I'mma still blow it up. The only thing that can deter me are a lot of turrets, waifus, or no loot.
  15. I wanna blow it up. I can to blow it up. I would blow it up. I should blow it up. I could blow it up. I may blow it up. I have to blow it up. I will want to blow it up. I need to blow it up. I desire to blow it up. I believe I can blow it up. I truely want to blow it up. I will blow it up. -A Poem by Kuritho

    Hi

    Hi.

    Can we stream it?

    My hope in DU is fading each day. Not streaming it is killing it rather quickly, as seen by forum activity differences and quality. I want to feel happy for the game, but the only reason they have the NDA is to make sure the game's current quality isn't shown.

    What would the 7 Greatest Wonders of DU be?

    I'd give the video a solid 1/10.

    The numbers, Mason! What do they mean?

    What would the 7 Greatest Wonders of DU be?

    Wherever there is a Wonder, there is at least a dozen people who want to crave their need to blow it up. They'd need to be protected heavily.
  22. Can we get an F in chat for H***** Haven?

  23. What if you wanted to die in DU, but...

    Actually, quantum mechanics forbid this.
