  1. I don't have the skills or inclination to do this kind of building, but I love to see what others come up with, and I love that the DU engine allows for this kind of raw creativity. I can't wait until the quest/mission stuff comes online. That's what I'm really looking forward to. Until then, I look forward to seeing all the amazing things the community dreams up! Well done, one and all who submitted entries for the contest!
  2. https://www.dualthegame.com/en/pledge/ Get a Sponsor Pack or a Patron Pack to play now. Note that Alpha testing sessions are only once a week at the moment. The final version of the game is not schedule for release until the second half of 2020, as of right now. https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/08/08/release-roadmap-alpha-launch-announcement/
  3. I usually describe DU as EVE + Minecraft to anyone who is unfamiliar with it. ?
  4. Welcome aboard! I'm here from EVE, too. ?
  5. https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/03/07/supporter-rewards-for-founder-backers/ Looks like you will have access at Alpha 2 -- currently scheduled for first half of 2019. https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/08/08/release-roadmap-alpha-launch-announcement/

  7. DU is exciting. The sandbox setting is appealing. No one can stop the orgs from forming. If there was no official support for it yet, it would be happening via other channels. The truly interesting thing about the metagame is that it is the context in which real people deal with one another, mediated less via the game world and more via actual human relationship. And just as that is a constant source of joy and frustration IRL, so will it be in DU. And so it is already! I'm thrilled by the level of engagement already occurring. It points toward the greater likelihood that a community will gel around this game quickly after release. That is what a game like this requires to remain interesting and fun. A sandbox MMO gets boring very quickly if you are the only one int he sandbox. Again, kind of like RL! So I embrace the early metagame. Even though I'm not much interested in the politics (i.e., power dynamics) of it all (as a member of the politically neutral Signal Cartel), I am delighted to see that it is growing with such vigor. It foretells good things for DU's success!

  9. What attracted you to Dual Universe? I love EVE Online. The deep lore and sandbox universe combine to produce some amazing emergent gameplay. But I also really enjoy custom crafting, a la Minecraft. DU seems to me like it could be the best of both worlds. What inspired you to become about of this fabulous growing community? The community! My favorite part of my time in EVE Online has been the tremendous community. It can look pretty rough from the outside looking in, but the players there are mostly wonderful. And my corporation home, Signal Cartel, is second-to-none in terms of fun activity, caring support, and genuine friendship. We say in EVE that the best ship is friendship, and I hope to be part of making that true in DU, as well. What do you hope to accomplish in this community? Any sort of in game goals you have? I love the non-PvP service-oriented gameplay that we have established in Signal cartel in EVE Online. I'm hoping to adapt that outlook to DU. What does search-and-rescue look like in DU? (Will there even be a need for it?) What will it mean to be neutral in DU? To be of service to the entire community in fun and creative ways? And I cannot wait to get my hands on the LUA scripting capabilities. We do a lot of fun in-game RP events in EVE, and the possibilities of what we can do in that regard with the scripting options is literally keeping me up at night in anticipation. I'm bought in to be part of the Alpha launch this fall/winter. I am super-excited to be a more direct part of Dual Universe!
  10. Just read the first two issues. Great stuff! Thanks for the work in putting it together.
