This is a forum on steroids tbh. The rate at which content worth reading is being generated could get you pregnant.

essentially yes - basically all it is OR once the player market opens you could sell it & make a profit

also - theres things called "officer weapons" which are super super super super super super rare guns like
Balac's GAR 21 assault rifle
or Thale's sniper rifle
etc etc etc
theses guns are prototypes that have some pretty OP stats and can only be obtained via their low slavage drop rate

Are corporations separate between DUST 514 and Eve, or can a merc join an existing Eve corp?  If separate, can a DUST corp have the same name as an Eve corp?  For instance, could I train corp mgmt on my merc and open a Du'uma Fiisi Integrated Astrometrics in DUST despite it existing in Eve?

Corporations are seamlessly integrated in terms of membership. If a Dust merc joins a corporation he is joining an EVE corporation, essentially, even if there are no EVE players in it. The new NPC corps for Dust players are an exception.

All of us share the same server, and corps, alliances and player names for both games are in the same namespace in the database. If an EVE player takes the name "Samuel Poopyhead-Fartface" for their character, that name becomes unavailable as-is for use as a corporation name, alliance name or Dust character name. You might find it with different punctuation or spelling, but not as it is, until the character in question is biomassed and the name freed up.

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.
