My roll... my roll is to sit still & figure out what I'm doing wrong TT^TT my teammates are better off without me.
You sound like you want/need some advice and help. Ask away young paddowan!
Spoken like a true recruiting hound^^^
I am the recruiting machine, please don't rage against me
....Wow. I read all your responses, and WOW. Not much support roles, and NO Armor drivers or Pilots!!?
I've been trying to wrap my head around this game called Dust 514, and realized late that it's called EVE Dust 514, and has this connection to PC game where cloned pilots fly fightercraft in HUGE space armada battles. And I find out this whole game is base out of Iceland (not California, or Berlin, or England...you know, the typically pounding bloody designers )
There's this whole religious following out there over this 10-yr old EVE capsuleers game, and it's the first time a console "shooter" game tries to merge with an "empire-building" PC game.
If those Iceland guys are able to pull this off as planned, all of us CoD, Black Ops, SOCOM kings may be in for the SURPRISE of our lives.
We're used to being just single or team shoot-for-all on a board, racking points and fillin' body bags. But the PC part of this game's got PC playeres forming and unforming HUGE corporations in the sky over our heads, and they are looking forward to using US as tools in their campaigns!! ...WHA!!
I read someplace that some players in the PC game had recently decided to transfer a HUGE sack of credits (AURUM?) as preparation to "fund" clans in our game (yep, your clan could get free credit transferred to you by a PC player who wants you to fight for THEM). The transaction took place in the EVE PC game...and apparently the shipment got hijacked by another group of players, cuz the game designers ALLOW spying and deception between players in the PC game. WOAH! Are you serious!!? COOL!
If they are able to merge these two games, then Dust 514 isn't just us running around assaulting for leaderboards anymore. THEY are hiring us to sack and burn....it's not just a "me for myself" shooter anymore.
With that much at stake, it's gonna be like Vietnam out there when the full game launches...you guys are gonna need team-player support roles. You're gonna need some super-good pilots and drivers and stuff.
Enough of the pimped-out army-of-one dude on two feet stuff for me. I'm gonna try my hand at SUPPORT, Big Time. May be expensive, but I'm gonna learn this Dust Marketplace system, and try to do it.
...Just something to think about.
Sad goodbyes and a Universe of good wishes to the 49, especially to CCP Eterne...
Because no story or character (not even an Eve character) can have a life without writers and publishers.
I'll miss your contributuions, Eterne.
