Sins of a Solar Spymaster #25 – Unholy Dust

Posted Wed, Aug 26, 2009 by The Mittani

Many of the top developers in the MMOG industry have been making major announcements as the summer convention season rumbles on, and CCP is no exception as the Icelandic developer brought us the one-two punch of Unholy Rage and the debut of a new title set in the EVE universe, Dust 514. In the latest edition of Sins of a Solar Spymaster, the Mittani tackles these two announcements and sheds some light on what impact they may potentially have on New Eden.

Needless to say, this has aroused skepticism in the EVE community, especially among alliance leaders. As one critic put it: "Imagine you're playing chess on one table. On the other table beside you, a few kids are playing Ludo. Suddenly, the kid who won at Ludo comes over to your table and takes your queen." It's no secret that CCP has been mulling over some sort of 0.0 sovereignty revamp, since by and large sovereignty wars are an exercise in frustration and hair-pulling, but no one could guess that CCP would solve these problems through a FPS on a platform many EVE players do not own.
