Hey guys, CCP Rattati here again. We’re pleased to announce that Hotfix Bravo has been deployed to DUST 514. We also wanted to give you some more insight into our hotfix process and how we see it improving over time.
Like before, we began a narrative process with the community followed by Feedback threads on specific subjects we were looking to work on in the next hotfix. These threads, including the Hotfix Alpha threads, are now all stored in the Development Discussion Archives.
We are pleased to announce that Hotfix Alpha has been deployed to DUST 514.
I am CCP Rattati, and I want to give you some insight into our hotfix process and how we see it improving over time.
My name is CCP Space Dog, aka Luo Bin. I joined CCP in 2011, and am the Visual Effects Lead. CCP has numerous talented and experienced employees, and I am very happy to have the opportunity to work with them. As a Visual Effects Artist, I am responsible for creating the in-game special effects players encounter, including muzzle flashes, explosions, solar flares, and so on. In order to create these, we use a wide variety of software and techniques.
My name is Snorri Árnason, a.k.a. CCP Rattati.
I will be working very closely with CCP Rouge to ensure the continued development and support for DUST 514, and from now on, will try to serve as your point of contact for all matters DUST. You can see more details here, and I‘d like to take a little bit of time to introduce myself.
DUST 514 is one year old today and to celebrate we are giving all our email newsletter subscribers a 3-day Active Omega-Booster. With this, you will be able to enjoy 100% more skill points for all battles completed during three days after this augmentation is activated.
I’m really excited to reach out to you again, and I hope you are following EVE Fanfest 2014. It’s a blast and a great chance for me to meet some of you in person and get feedback on our current and next endeavors. No pressure!

Welcome to yet another Developer Spotlight! This week we turn the focus to CCP Slevin, our resident Environment Artist here at CCP Shanghai. Laying waste to all that moves with his trusty Scrambler Rifle, he is arguably one of the best and most passionate DUST 514 players within the office and has the nasty KDR to show for it.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with CCP Games, endearingly known to me as “the game company from space,” and am even more thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in the development of DUST 514. I joined CCP Shanghai in 2008, and even now every morning feels fresh and exciting for me. My work is very dynamic, and every day’s visit to my workstation brings new challenges.
As an Environment Artist, my primary responsibilities include the terrains, textures and light effects present in game. While incredibly challenging, I take great pleasure in creating and presenting unique planets that speak to players’ imaginations. Much of my work is in the crafting of geographical features that are simply not present on Earth, and I find these very fulfilling.
