EVE Evolved: Is DUST 514 a pay-to-win game?

Joystiq:

'I've been following DUST 514's development with a cautious optimism for the past few years and have been trying to convince my console gamer friends to give it a try since it launched back in May. Last week I finally sat down to play the game myself and was thoroughly disappointed with both its 2005-era graphics and fundamentally broken gameplay. DUST 514 will likely stay in development for the forseeable future and may end up becoming a polished and integral part of the EVE Online universe, but right now it's a buggy and mediocre FPS that has very little impact on New Eden.'

OMG this game is bad, just ask yourself this.....Would you rather play the game for 6 weeks to unlock a gun or just buy it on day 1 for ¢5?

The scale between time to unlock vs money items are one sided.

Only a fool would grind that much time when they can buy it immediatly.

Not to mention aiming, frames per second and hit registration is still schitt, even after 8 years of developement. Just last month their Executive Producer Quit!

Im waiting for Planetside 2 on PS4!

Who are you on dust? As in character name?

Don't bother Hammad, clearly doesn't play, just wants to complain about it.

Clearly didn't even grasp the concepts:
'Would you rather play the game for 6 weeks to unlock a gun or just buy it on day 1 for ¢5?'

Factually wrong. Something that takes 6 weeks to unlock can not be bought on day 1

I've been playing DUST 514 for a couple of months and I find the article "EVE Evolved: Is DUST 514 a pay-to-win game?" accurate. BlingBlaine, for a guy who really seems to hate this game, you sure seem to be interested in following the posts on this game on n4g.com and commenting on the game. I think you're exaggerating just a bit, don't you think? Did they disappoint you all that much? Did you even read the article?
I'm looking forward to Planetside 2 myself, and Destiny as well. (It's a shame Halo and Titanfall's XBOX One only.) I think DUST 514 has a lot of work to do if they want to keep up with the barrage of hot new games coming up in just a few months. I myself will be switching to both of them from DUST 514 in November, and I'll be putting this otherwise great game on the back burner till they upgrade it to the PS4, and then I'll only make the switch if I can transfer my account to the new console's version.

dust can be okay, but they need to get their act together. I just might write some of the ideas I have for that game. If they don't do it, I hope I get hired by someone that will use them.
