Dust 514 Open Beta - Monday, February 04, 2013 12:01 PM
So I'm sure everybody knows it's out and everything. But i haven't seen any threads on a meet up or if anybody is even playing it. 
I just got into it and im really enjoying it, its turning out to be good, like really good.

I mean for a F2P on PSN, a Beta and by the CCP, who don't make FPS's.

I joined a Corp and i can barely put it down now, its so much more skill and strategy based then CoD, and BF, the dominant FPS's.

Just sayin' if you guys want to meet up and play, let us know.

Been wondering about this and if I should D/L. Is it Pay to Win?

So odd that you would make this thread today; how coincidental. I've been in this Beta for quite a while and stopped playing for about a month or so. Picked it back up on Friday and hit the XP cap on all 3 days. Game is a blast, really enjoying it. This game has gotten miles better than when I first joined. 

People who haven't signed up yet -

Use this link to sign up and you'll get a 7 day XP bonus and an unlimited use assault rifle that's a little bit better than the one you start with.


Unagi - My in game name is - Dr Stabwounds 

I'm also looking for an active corporation to join . They need to make better options for finding them, search shouldn't be the only way. 

I'll be playing later on tonight - ~8:30pm EST for a couple hours. 



@IrishGuy - I wouldn't say so. I've bought some things because I wanted to help support the game as I was quite enjoying it and find myself not really using the items all the time. For all the stuff I've seen so far there is an option that is almost as good or better than the paid version. 

It kind of works in tiers, I'll try to simply break it down.

AssaultRifles - The standard is what the others are all based off, with the other models being modded up or down to make variations. 

Tier 1
AR 
AR with high Dam, low RoF
AR with burst
AR with high RoF, lower damage
AR+: only bought with AUS (bought with real $) - slightly better than all

Tier 2: You may need to upgrade your skills to be able to access these
AR2 - better than the AR+
repeat

So while the AR+ (as I'm calling it) is the best of the group, the next level of guns are all better. That's kind of how it works for everything.

Alright, that doesn't sound to bad :) I just deleted the Rising Demo(after playing it about 15 times) and started downloading. Only 2-3 hours to go :/ ...........Being Anti Tank/Vehicle/whatever

bump --- Ah I hate being on a crappy team. We were locked in by 3 tanks for an entire match. People just camped at our base sniping instead of trying to take out the tanks and push to the checkpoints which wouldn't have been that hard had people intelligently took out rocket launchers, seems like no one knew how to use vehicles either. What a backwards way to play a game based around ensuring the objectives are taken

Too slow for my tastes and environments are pretty dull
