DUST Fanfest Player Here

It's really hard for me to explain things. I never heard of CCP until I became involved in DUST 514. A free FPS that looked like a solid game. I really enjoyed being able to be a part of this from the ground up as a beta player and all. Sure the game had its faults, but they were being fixed and with the players help, my help, we shaped it into something solid. I felt like I was part of a strange family, sure a digital one, but family.

Then I hear about this Fanfest and CCP really pushing DUST players to come up to Iceland and enjoy the party on top of the world. A party with the rest of the family and to meet EVE players as well as other DUST players. I am a family man and really wanted my family to experience the CCP and EVE family. We flew up here to join in on the Fanfest activities. My wife and little boy. Hopefully will try to get him another sibling to pick on later this year! (still trying)

At first things were great. It was interesting to walk around and introduce yourself as a DUST only player and everyone was so friendly. I meet a ton of people. Things were great. Finally, after all the other stuff we get to the DUST presentation. For a moment I felt special. This was a presentation about me and the rest of my friends who play DUST. A presentation for us and to become closer to the rest of this family here at CCP and with EVE. Everyone around me knew I was a DUST only player it seemed.

Never in all my life have I been this utterly embarrassed to be somewhere. To really feel executed on the spot and all eyes on you. I felt like the biggest fool in the universe. My wife just covered her mouth and looked at me with pity. It felt as if everyone was looking at me for a reaction.

Every single moment after that it seemed like my family and I had leprosy. People steered clear and ended conversations as fast as possible and vanished. I just don't know how else to explain it. I have never in all my life felt this betrayed and publicly humiliated.

I wish I never came up here.

This community needs to take their AURUM chargeback money and start a kickstarter for all the Dusties that went to Iceland to get PS4s or somethin. I feel awful for you man.... I couldn't even imagine how embarassing that must have been. Shame on CCP.

It's really just shameful on CCPs part.

This has to be one of the biggest PR blunders in gaming history.

I'm embarrassed in front of my co-workers after explaining why I was getting a refund from Sony. "Oh that game you like so much is over". I'm so sorry dude. This sucks.

sorry man. Turn it into a genuine holiday and go and see the sights or find other dust players and see what games they are interested in. Destiny seems to be the next popular game it seems.

I'll donate 10$ to you, I'm sure many other players would as well. Let's cover your terrible visit.

Oh, and when you make your new baby, make sure you throw the old one out and don't give it any future support.

That really sucks man. I was disappointed I didn't get to go this year after going last year. I can't believe they did this to those who came. At least they could have given the DUST fans some fun and dropped this on us later.

I feel for you. I would probably feel similarly if I had paid for the trip... try to hang in there. Oh, and demand a refund of your ticket price.
