Dressed for Success
In my view DUST 514 success will relay a lot on player generated promotion – had CCP Games put a bit more of thought on this they would already be running several “promote your corps in DUST” schemes and competitions to create some hype, level the ground a bit and give apathetic EVE player a sense of pertinence to the whole thing. Maybe one of those guys with the word “Senior” on their job title could run to their bosses and tell them about this great idea they just had.
Anyhow here are a couple DUST 514 related propaganda pieces I feel worth featuring:
First – Here is this video, a well made remix of promotional footage to promote DUST recruitment for the “RISE OF LEGION” alliance. Pay attention as the bass shall be dropped only once:
Discussion: Promoting DUST 514.
Since our community is a crowd-sourced one, I would like to open a discussion on which could be the most effective way for EVE players and corporations to capitalize on the whole DUST 514/EVE integration. Some corporations already have an edge over others, for example TEST alliance has a good reddit (and more important the know how on how to capitalize on it), GoonSwarm Federation have their Something Awful forums base while entities like Eve University and RvB have a large active member base which could be called into activism to promote their DUST corps. All this is good, but what about the small guys?
Also one often overlooked side-effect of DUST 514 is the possibility of this being a catalyst for mass pilot recruitment and to serve as R&R for brunt out pilots.
The discussion is open.
