The MOther of all rumor packs.

6 replies 193 views Edited Aug 15, 2013

HeartIn forums we all tend to love RUMORS to post about and digest in our collective minds.  For forum conversations, rumors are more valuable than facts.  Kind of like feeding your dogs a bowl of food they eat in 20 minutes, versus giving them a butcher-shop bone they naw on for hours. 

 

In June 2013, merc Dao Ferret put together the biggest  meat bone for Dust 514 you could want.  So much rumor (but from actual CCP design efforts) that it would put you in the hospital trying to digest all this stuff in one reading. 

I deleted the part of his list that refers to Uprising 1.3 (why review the past?).      Thanks, Dao.

 

by Dao Ferret:

 There is a fair amount of content that we know to expect, some of which we even have a reasonable idea of when we'll get. My hope is to put this all together into one place.... 

...Also: Thanks go out to all the posters below who supplied links, likes, a valid complaint/criticism, or even a kind word/rant. Without all of you, this wouldn't possible.


Uprising 1.4 - unofficial drop date: late Aug/early Sept 2013

Confirmed (we've seen confirmation from CCP that these are in the update):
Expected to include (we haven't seen confirmation, but hints mean these might be ready soon):
Possible to include (but probably not ... until it shows up above, anything below here is speculation):

 

DROPSUITS:


Rendering from FanFest of all racial DropSuits

  • Caldari Heavy DropSuit and Heavy Racial Specializations - VVSN™
  • Gallente Heavy DropSuit and Heavy Racial Specializations - VVSN™
  • Minmitar Heavy DropSuit and Heavy Racial Specializations - VVSN™
  • Amarr Light DropSuit and Scout Specialization - VVSN™
  • Caldari Light DropSuit and Scout Specialization - VVSN™

VVSN™ = "Very Very Soon, NOT ™" from FanFest 2013 presentation ~1:01:00 mark (May, 10th 2013)
(proposal by CPM to use placeholder art till proper assets could be produced ... denied by CCP to the best of my knowledge)

Quote:
Only the Amarr Commando model will be live with Uprising 1.2, but the Minmatar, Gallente, and Caldari heavy Commando frames will be joining it in updates to come.


CCP have said in the past that Art Assets have been the holdup for the rest of the racial suits. This could be a sign we'll be seeing: Cal/Gal/Min Heavy & Sentinel & Commando being introduced in an upcoming update (possibly one race per update or two?) since once they have the Heavy model, we assume the Commando is just a reskin of it, which should take much less time to produce/QA.
Again... we aren't guaranteeing or saying this will happen, but it certainly is within the realm of the possible.

Re: The MOther of all rumor packs.

Speaking of Kittens and rumors, I don't want to seem over anxious, but has anyone found a firm release date for Uprising 1.4?

 

I've been reading some OHTER rumors from OTHER forums that indicate some changes I'm NOT thrilled with:

 

Possible deletion of the infamous "burning armour" effect that HAV and Dropship drivers encounter.  This is a wierd effect that causes your vehicle to catch fire---AND leech your armour down to zero if you don't do something quick to put the fire out.  Smiley Surprised 

It's a cool effect (I like it), but some players hate losing a vehicle to "a cockpit fire". 

 

Unpredicatble, slightly-frustrating, and original components like this in Dust make it a much more fun game to play, as far as I'm concerned.  So I hope we don't scare CCP into sweeping them all away with our constant griping.

Smiley Embarassed From the way the rumor list reads, I'm expecting the armour plating changes to relate only to dropsuits and not dropSHIPS or other vehicles.  As an Artificer character, my vehicle IS the "suit"  that I fitted to protect me from enemy fire.

 

Over the months I sank all I had into priming the vehicle, with only a scant amount of SP used to upgrade some personal weapon skills, and NOTHING for a dropsuit of any kind.   

I THINK I made the right use of my SP,... but sometimes I still try to second guess.  Smiley LOL
