34 replies 909 views Edited Aug 29, 2011

Acording to IGN if u search for dust 514 on ign website u will find thats Dust seams to suport up to 32 players thats mean 16 vs 16 battle if this is true it kinda suck 32 players is not thats bad its still can be really fun but i get use to 32 vs 32 battle !

Anyones can confirme the exact numbers of players because ive tried to get a answer on tweeter from ccp but nothing compleate silenced from ccp dev since E3 the only thing we know from tweater is they have start an internal beta since august 18 thats all !

I am not a big fan of scaling but they seem to imply that at the start it will be around 16v16 and grow from there if there is the player base to support it. Anyone know how big EVE fights were initially? I have heard that now 1000s of ships can be involved and that orginaly it was not that big.

i think at launch they were thinking it would be 20 vs. 20. 

the third party war rooms are also said to support 32 players in them at all times so I can only assume at one point we'll see 32 vs 32 battles and then some.

I think that scaling is the most efficient way to introduce a game.  It allows you to judge what you need in a manner that efficiently uses hardware and allows you to find out maybe slowly to get your game online.

That blog there I think they mentioned 40 people, now they didn't specify if it was 40 people on one team or 20 v 20 to make 40.

Check it out stew, lots of blogs and info there.

The war rooms can hold up to 32 people at a time the game mode the showed at gamescom was a 7 v 7 scirmish of a 32 player mode which means there will be modes with more people. The REGIS personally thinks that they will launch at 32 v 32 but that will be in nullsec whil in high and lo they will have mostly 16 v 16 modes. Besides scaling is good but they might be surprised at how many people buy the game and play it they may up the count beyond that of MAG's they say they can put 1000's of people on a map and we already know there servers can handle it they are always running stress test.

I agree regis.

With the size of the war room I assumed it would be up to 32 v 32.

Who is to say that the War Room isn't going to just be the leadership of the op?

The War Room is for both Dust and EVE so I never assumed that the initial battles would be more than 20-ish per side. If it is only for leadership then knowing what is the smallest size squad makes a difference. ie squads of 2, 3, 4...?
