...Lasers from the Sky, at Last! Factional Warfare backed by EVE

...And if you hear it, look up.  Look UP!...

 

Factional Warfare and its elaborate mechanics sneaked up on many of us between Uprising 1.4 and 1.5---we haven't fully realized that the merge between EVE and Dust players that many Dust gamers disbelieved could be acheived... IS ALREADY PART OF NEW EDEN. 

 

The Orbital Strike merc players call down "from the warbarge" in Public Contract games, is a lethal tool, formed from Caldari-based weaponry of magnetic pulses that 'hammer' the surface targets like feet of Odin.  But the often-chosen EVE orbital destroyers use LASER-based weaponry to 'incinerate' a target on the skin of a planet.  AND EVE PLAYERS HAVE JOINED US IN the Factional Warfare matches.  

 

So far ONLY IN THE FACTIONAL WARFARE MATCHES, is this EVE capsuleer/Dust merc merge established.  You MUST play in the Factional Warfare section of the game (and must accept the Loyalty Poihts payout instead of ISK payout that may be approaching in the future), but when you call down an Orbital Strike, the experience is this:

Factiona Warfare has opened up a door...

On the other side of it you are now your EVE players, just as eager to fire a round as you are. 

If you have squads, mount them together and follow the instructions in the thread to Q-synch and join "the future of New Eden".  Type in the Chat Channel "Caldari hierachy", and join to access the matches they are running.

Because no story or character (not even an Eve character) can have a life without writers and publishers.

I'll miss your contributuions, Eterne.

mercenary Milla Slater; adopted into Sebiestor nomadic tribe...MinmatarLOL, Supertman!!  WHERE did you hear the story about "seeing" the capsuleers in the sky? 

 

When you did FW, did you rememer to go to the "Caldari Hierachy" chat channel and q-synch into their match, or did you just click on the customary FW menu as usual.  If you used the customary FW menu in the game, then you only got the customary FW battle without any EVE players linked to it, (I think). 

With all the chatter that EVE Online players do when they are playing the game, and the fact that this "synching" of Dust and EVE was done before at one of the exhibitions, I'm sure the synched FW matches are happening. 

It also jives with CCP announcing they had to shut down Tranquility server on October 30th, to "acquire bulk data for EVE players"...(possibly the two are connected).

 

This coming Wednesday starts a Triple SP event, so I won't be trying the FW matches for a week or two...  But I will find the "caldari hierachy" chat channel and try it for myself just out of curiosity.  My secondary merc character needs some exersice!!

Saw an Orbital from EVE once in Amarr FW.

 

As for being able to see ships Supert, you cant physically see them, but if you look up when the OB is hitting, you should see a square with the EVE Player's name under it.

 

I've only ever seen two EVE OBs, once in a PC match, and once in a FW match.
