Cool post, I didn't know about the last one and I've been playing it for quite a while. I do wish randoms I squad wirh would set objectives though, so much more points for everyone in the squad.

I would gather his opinions are based off a few times playing and honestly don't blame him. I did the same thing when I got into the beta in April, but decided to give it another go some time later. There is such a huge learning curve that a lot of people just give up before seeing the massive depth that is there.

That said, anyone can feel free to PM me for some help. If you're thinking about signing up then I can give a link for free in game stuff too.

What's Dust 514? I know that might sound like a weird question but I've never heard of it before.

Sometimes things fly under the raider, it happens.

I'll give explaining it shot.

Dust 514 is a F2P MMOFPS set inside the EVE online universe. They fight in space and the Dust players (Mercs) fight for control of the planets. Actually fighting for planets coming soon -

You get skill points and ISK (in game currency) for playing. SP is used to skill up your merc like in RPGs - buying skills and leveling them up. Buying and leveling up skills allows you to buy better stuff. ISK is used to buy weapons, suits and modules (kind of like perks - +10% damage, +66 shields, etc...) for said suit. When you die all of those things go with you so managing ISK spent vs ISK won is a major mechanic of the game. The suit determines how many of each kind of module you can place on the suit and what role you'll have on the battlefield.

Heavies carry big guns and have lots of armor, but are very slow and can't carry any equipment.

Assault is the jack of all trades kind of class with everything about it kind of being right in the middle.

Scout is very fast with higher shield regen so they can get away quickly. A lot of people use shotguns with a scout suit.

Last, but not least the Logistics (my class). The logi is the helper on the battlefield. These suits have more equipment slots so they can revive fallen teammates, repair their armor, and give ammo (along with a few other options)

If your gonna DL it then sign up here so you can get some Blueprint Original items when you start, they don't get destroyed in battle.
