So CCP has finally added some info in on how DUST 514 Planetary Conquest Mechanics will tug at EVE at the hip with the recent Dev Blog on Planetary Conquest Update. Yes it seems to be getting more real as Stabs say as well. If you had tried to read that long mega thread on the DUST 514 Forums with lots and lots of feedback by the DUST Devs and players all the way through, CCP seemed to be looking into a range of various interesting ways to have the benefits flow back and forth between DUST 514/EVE with Planetary Conquest and Planetary control and ownership. So I guess the first look of what some those bonuses will be from the EVE side.
Nice thing that CCP will also be condensing all that information changes to Planetary Conquest and Mechanics into one area as there was a lot of feedback information scattered all through that DUST 514 Forums thread for Planetary Conquest feedback. Which was allot! All that info which was hard to find without having to endure reading over 60+ pages of forum feedback and Dev comments.
The numbers for Planetary Conquest as it related to DUST 514 side with Clone Mechanic (attacking, defending, generation, moving & cost) and SI (Surface Infrastructures) has now changed much from the old previous numbers based on DUST 514 Forums feedback for the not yet implemented game mechanic. So seem CCP is listening much to player feedback.
However just thinking, a POS is anchored around a Moon which orbits a Planet. Wonder if there will ever soon be benefits from Moons as well in those planetary contested areas. That could possibly make Planets with lots of Moons quite valuable. Maybe changes to Moons and their resources as well in EVE. I guess TBD as DUST 514 Beta progresses.
