Inside the Entropy Virus, Part 1

 One of our many sources throughout New Eden recently revealed himself to be a member of the secretive EV Alliance or Entropy Virus [ ]consisting of the notorious Global Conflict, RND, STB and BHD among others. Many have heard whispers of the EV, this secretive alliance full of bravado, but we were finally able to confirm the existence of this mysterious group. Our source recently supplied us with taped discussions from inside secret alliance meetings where they discussed things like other alliances, corporations, how to get CONCORD to come down on rival groups and even which corporations they should "turn".

Propaganda Ridicules Border Skirmishes

While a massive roll-out and mobilization of ground forces has begun in many New Eden Corporations, many disenfranchised veterans of some of the popular MAG Border Skirmishes have begun filtering through some of the larger alliances.

TEST Alliance Begins Recruiting

The Test Alliance has begun their well publicized push for recruiting the soldiers that storm the surfaces of planets in New Eden. The enduring image many will remember is the recruiting poster (seen above) that harkens back to the days of the most primitive of projectile weapons that were used thousands of years prior. It's an odd but apparently very effective way to seduce mercs to fly their colors.

CCP Reveals Dust 514 Prelaunch Bundle

Yesterday David Reid revealed the Prelaunch Bundle that was recently made available for Dust 514. It creates a value based option to get more from the game at launch despite the fact that the game is a F2P title. As it stands, the bundle allows for a more enhanced starter arsenal in addition to access to all private and public beta events.

So what's your opinion of the Pre-Launch Bundle? Is it an asset worth investing in or something you will pass on?

We're Recruiting!

That's right! The Dusters Blog is recruiting again! We have a wonderful team here already but due to a big spike in viewership we don't want them to get swamped with emails regarding information from Sources, Headlines, Interviews and all the other wonderful things we do.

What we do is pretty simple, among other things we craft in-game events into Headlines, draft Interviews and we even have fiction writers that are featured on our blog, so there's a niche for everyone. Interested? GREAT. Send us an email at expressing your interest and we'll see what you got. Please keep in mind that what we do we do for fun, it's on a volunteer basis. But we promise not to fire you when the big bucks start rolling in :)

Is a ROFL/SYN Confrontation Brewing?

Sources have alerted us to a possible confrontation brewing between the ROFL alliance and SyN Corp. Most of the details aren't known at this time, but some of the animosity seems to be derived from the fact that SyN is the home of many former PHI members, producing a natural bad-blood between the two groups. While one look at the two groups would have you believe SyN has a significant disadvantage; as they are a corporation while ROFL is an entire alliance of corporations, rumor has it that the smaller group possesses some of the most elite mercenaries in the entire galaxy.
