    This site convinced me to join and try to get into Dust 514. I really enjoy fps games and have been curious about Dust, but must say that right now I am a total clueless noob who is still installing the game...

    Welcome to the corp! I am writing up a bit of a starters guide now. Ask any questions here for the time being. Next time I see you in game, we'll have a chat about the game and give you some direction.

    i went my whole session today losing continuously

    im down 5 million isk, stats aren't too pretty to look at, bleeding aur....not a good day today.

    i wonder if the matchmaking is still $#@!ed up or if 6 man squads are pushing it for instant battles? before i could more or less stay close to my 3:1 K/D ratio. but now im getting demolished by everything and barely managing 1:1...

    however, i ended on a high running and gunning with my Scout suit so i can't complain, still lost but whatever. after a day of getting raped any solace is good solace


    that being said, BETA should stay in the title.

    CCP don't seem too concerned by the issues people are having.

    the modded controllers are bull$#@!, the random invisible walls do my head in, grenade throwing is glitchy, getting stuck on objects is a pain....how long has uprising been out?
    i know CCP are looking into a hotfix for modded controllers but what about all the other stuff?

    not the best start to a game that wants to make it 10 years.



    the lyrics create a halfway accurate description of Dust atm

    Hello DUST mercs!

    Some of you already know me as Kyle Prahl, U.S. Managing Editor on the PSU content team. After tinkering around in the beta periods, I've decided to give the full version of DUST 514 one more college try.

    I'm currently just derping around in the Merc Quarters, trying to figure out how everything works. Looking forward to getting to know people in our corporation and joining the festivities!

    i've been struggling with controls ever since uprising went live.

    Ye Be Gods can attest to my woeful performance as i had a match against him and even though we won i was down 6/13 or something...

    that's an unacceptable stat for someone who stands on the frontline.

    on top of it being a chore to aim and kill someone, the problem is compounded if we do PC more often. me wasting clones at the front is not something i particularly fancy.

    CCP seems slow in responding, i've seen the cries on the dust forums and as best as i recall, they only have a fix for the slippery aiming. yet modded controllers, the random invisible walls, getting stuck on stuff still seems a long way off.

    yeah, i need to take some time to evaluate how i play the game. right now im just a burden and im not having fun. so not going very well.

    the various bugs obviously effect the way i play the game, but there are things i know i can do to mitigate that issue. i just don't have the patience right now to see those changes through.


    but whilst i was browsing the dust forums i came across a little tidbit of info for logistics. when someone dies, the server registers that client side. so the point of death is sent to peoples PS3's. however, ragdoll is handled locally on individual PS3's. so the position of a mercs body is likely to be different to the position the server is reporting.

    for example. if i get shot at the top of the hill, tranquility will report this location to all players [the top of the hill], however, all PS3's connected will ragdollise the merc rolling down the hill. if you run up to the body which rolled to the bottom it wont work. you need to go to the top of the hill where tranquility saw me die and revive me from there

    hope this helps our logistics in finding our downed team members

    I haven't been been having to much trouble myself thankfully. Except for the usual getting stuck on random objects. You get good games you get bad games. It's all part of the Dust life.

    Sent in an app. Hopefully things are better than in the beta. I remember it being very clunky.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Hi, I have been playing Dust for like a month now and I'm really starting to enjoy it. (Dust is also not my first FPS, just saying.) I've just joined the forums and will be sending in my app in the next couple days. Oh, and I go by ninjamonster.

    I'll send my app in this afternoon when I get home, seems like a good beneficial idea to be with a corporation in this game, apparantly it opens up more things to do so hope to be welcomed in.

    Yeah that was a bad battle. I was fed up with it all so I was sniping and shot you just to see if there would be any bs. I had no intention to kill you toolshed, lol. But there were actually 2 other times you froze and I could have easily headshotted you but didn't. I'm doing the same right now too as far as taking a few days off.

    thanks to the reskilling done by CCP im having a better time of Dust now. the bugs still get to me *cough* UE3 *cough* but im managing steady.

    got my scrambler up to proto level and that $#@! is AWESOME!!!! with the amarr suit this thing is just lol

    during my sabbatical i thought about my fittings and did away with them all and refitted from scratch!


    so what i run now is two variants centered around the two scrambler variants.

    at proto level

    Marksmen Suit:
    complex armour repairers x3
    Complex damage modifiers x3
    Single shot scramble rifle (proto)
    nono hives
    locust grenades

    CQC Suit:
    complex armour plates x1 (this thing is OP imo)
    enhanced armour repairers x2
    full automatic scrambler rifle (proto)
    nano hives
    locust grenades
    BPO submachinegun

    the regular suits for pub matches are obviously lesser versions of the proto suits which make do with advanced gear and less high/low modules.

    also, i find it a bit weird that the scrambler rifle comes with heat build up when its threshold is seldom reached

    I used the refunded SP to become a fully proto logi. Got my injectors, hives and uplinks to augment my repair. I'm glad you're getting back into the swing of things.
