Gotta say, this game looks to be promising. I should be following up on it, but with its release date not for a bit, I'm to lazy.

Dust is nothing like Eve. It's just an FPS tied to Eve, you just go to planets and fight a match. All of the strategic stuff like building up territories is in Eve, not Dust. I suggest you read up on ER a bit more.

I suggest you look at when posts are posted. Before fanfest we knew almost nothing about it, so please, come down off your pedestal and start paying attention.

Maybe you should have been paying attention back when Dust 514 was announced.

It was never, ever described as anything even remotely like Earthrise except that both have shooter elements and are sci-fi. Every description of Dust 514, even before fanfest, was that of a game focusing on shooter action and made absolutely no mention of a player driven economy, construction of bases (or even direct control of territory), or any of the other elements that make Earthrise a complete MMORPG. In fact, it was even stated that it would not be Eve on the ground on the day it was announced:"Instead of doing EVE Online for consoles,” says Petursson, “we looked hard at what people want to do when they're playing in their living room as opposed to sitting in front of a PC." (first link above) That sounds like the complete opposite of what Earthrise is aiming for.

Further, my previous post was not made to correct you (as this one is) but to simply set the record straight for anyone else curious about Earthrise who happens to read the comments.
