ReK42, a logistics director for TEST Alliance Please Ignore addressed Subdreddit Tuesday, emphasizing the corporation’s place in TEST and recognizing the mercs’ commitment to the Alliance. Morale is now at an all-time high as the troops mobilize for conquest.
Dust 514 and the Subdreddit Corporation
Are you an active Redditor? Do you play Eve Online or find it intriguing? Do love first person shooters and own a PS3? If you answered yes to these questions, consider downloading the free-to-play Dust 514 and applying for citizenship of the Subdreddit Corporation!
New Eden is about to get interesting. On May 6, Planetary Conquest will begin. Eve pilots on the PC side will be vying for control of planets as usual, but now they’ll be able to deploy armies of immortal mercenaries to the ground to seize control. These mercs in Dust 514 for PS3 will be waging ground wars, taking over planets district-by-district.
Subdreddit is one of the largest and most experienced mercenary corporations in Dust 514. A band of over 500 Redditors, we pride ourselves in supporting each other as a team and making sure everyone is well equipped and has their needs met. A member of Test Alliance and the Honey Badger Coalition, Subdreddit is backed by the ultra-powerful Eve corporation, Dreddit. A Subdreddit roughneck knows they will never be alone on the battlefield, and they will always have orbital support by their brothers and sisters in the sky.
Questions for Mc Ribwich
Subdredditor Mc Ribwich (who goes by Horrorgun in EVE), produced and directed this awe-inspiring film. He’s one of Subdreddit’s many talented video journalists, and he’s done great work for the corp. Here’s his debriefing:
Vile Heathen: How long have you been playing EVE and DUST 514?
Mc Ribwich: I started playing EVE back in 2010 when the Domination expansion was out, and I have been playing DUST 514 ever since the closed beta.
VH: What inspired you to make this film?
MR: I was inspired by a collection of things really—boredom, EVE propaganda, old Soviet propaganda, and the constant jibberish North Korea spurts out. The inspiration of the old Russian propaganda really stands out as the whole video is based off of those films. I also referenced snippets from North Korea’s recent speech denouncing the United States. But overall, I wanted to make this video for Subdreddit because I find the idea of propaganda in the EVE universe awesome.
VH: What does it take to put something like this together?
MR: A helpful corp for one. When I first posted about wanting to make a propaganda video, everyone was happy to help. Our CEO, Dent308, even set up a corp battle so we could capture some footage without interruptions from people in public matches. And snacks, dear god don’t forget snacks to feed on while editing.
VH: Who else was involved?
MR: Dent 308, Orca Amsel, Ivan Avogadro, Vile Heathen, and many others who I can’t remember right now. Loads of people helped out.
VH: Any advice for allies?
MR: Make sure to yell at your opponent when beating them with a stick. This helps you maintain dominance on the battlefield.

CCP recently released their latest trailer showing the interaction between DUST 514 and EVE Online. We can’t help by think it was inspired by the fan trailer produced and directed by Horrorgun (Mc Ribwich in Subdreddit) four weeks ago. Horrorgun was also the videographer who recorded the viral first orbital bombardment as seen in both games, which was retweeted by CCP.
Subdreddit. A Corporation of Creative Professionals.
Good morning, (Sub)Dredditors and (Sub)Dredditor friends!
As promised last week, Subdreddit media aficionado Starfire Revo lead the charge in producing some fan-made television for your entertainment consumption needs, with yours truly as one of the guests, along with some more Dust names that you may recognize. I was joined by Subdreddit Warlord and Fearless Leader, dent308 as well as Kane Spero, leader of The Imperfects, a highly regarded corp and current tournament champions. Fellow Subdredditor Horus Forge helped me rep the Subdreddit name, and Cerebral Wolf of Goonswarm joined with some great viewpoints on where we can expect the meta game to go. That’s enough of an intro, I think. We had a really great discussion on where we think Dust is heading, so I encourage everyone to give it a listen. Now, without further adieu, I give you…
I’d actually like to take this opportunity to expand on a few ideas I threw out during the show, but if you haven’t watched it yet I’ll try and give some context. It’s been a while since I’ve been on a podcast, and as a writer I think it’s a tad easier for me to get my points across in text as opposed to an impromptu conversation.
Master tank drivers Lurch and Ted Nugent of SVER True Bloods rolled with LowRateHitman as he drilled them with questions pertaining to their field of study (and mass destruction). They generously shared their knowledge of HAV tactics, offering tips for beginners and intermediate players alike.
Lurch, who did most of the talking, suggested that beginners should decide on a path of tank-building and to stick with it: Armor Tanks (Gallente) for up-close brawling, or Shield Tanks (Caldari) for a faster sniper or hit-an-run tactic. He also stressed the importance of using mods with tanks, because unlike with dropsuits, the difference between not having them and having even low-tier ones is humungous, and he especially recommends level-1 upgrades for resistance mods (armor or shield, depending on your style).
Some other upgrades he recommends are level-1 large hybrid turrets to free up PG and CPU (to fit more mods!), heat sinks to keep the turrets firing, and he loves to use multiple active hardeners which he rotates, giving him a series of armor boosts.
Other highlights of the video include tips on dealing with anti-vehicle weapons and installations and the three orbital bombardments they achieved throughout the match!
Extra thanks to these STB mercs for disclosing their tactics with us and LowRate for getting out there and making this video!
