Man this game is pretty garbage

I honestly thought it would be good...

It's like a planetside 2 clone and planetside 2 sucks as well.


Pros:
-Tied with Eve Online
-Persistent world
-Interesting universe
-Sci-Fi is cool
-Large scale warfare
-Free


Cons:
-PS2 graphics
-Combat is clunky
-Confusing user interface
-Steep learning curve
-Pay2Win

Given the pros, I really expected a solid AAA game given that CCP is behind it, but this is just really bad..

Pay2Win? You must have this confused with some other game...

(i agree on most of the other stuff though)

Pros:
-Tied with Eve Online
-Persistent world
-Interesting universe
-Sci-Fi is cool
-Large scale warfare
-Free
-CCP is trying to balance it, keyword trying


Cons:
-PS2 graphics (although graphics are a back seat priority to gameplay :P)
-Combat is slightly broken
-Confusing user interface if you can't read
-Requires you read stuff
-Requires you play a few weeks to get a few toys, a deterrence to impatient players

Its not pay to win at all. The crap you can buy is outclassed by what you can get by playing the game and earning the sp's to unlock them.

I'm suprised the P2W aspect keeps comming up. Dust is perhaps he leas P2W game of any that offer ways to real money on a game. About the only advantage real money has is lettting you get stuff a little bit earlier than you would other wise be able too either threw Boosters or Aur items that let you use something one rank higher than you normally could.

If anything Dust is an elitist game,one that favors not money but time spent. Once you gathered 8-10 mil SP you can pretty much be the best of the best in one narrow field, or pretty good in a few.

I can agree on pretty much all the other points but to me 'Free' is the big point. For a free game this is pretty good and until something better comes out that is also free I'm willing to spend my extra free time on this. I'm not going to dedicate my life to Dust by any stretch, and I'll keep playing other games but a few times a week I'm willing to blow people up. It only taks about 50-100 battles a week to hit your cap, less if you have some really good battles. That's maybe 12hrs total in a week. Yes there is a grind in dust, but at least it's not a daily grind like it used to be. Now you can easily hit your cap in 2 or 3 days and have the rest of the week off.

Cons....all of that sounds like a personal problem.

I'm sorry, but when you have an FPS with awful graphics dropping below 30fps, you have issues.

We agree on more then you realize, but a forum that sits around agreeing with each other is boring and unfun

Despite Dust514.coms INSANE stupidity its fun to read the train wrecks called topics, because no one agrees and everyone is the drunk guy at the party who goes "watch this"
