I can't seem to find detailed information on how this game is intended to interact with the Eve universe.

Is it live against Tranquility yet?

Will everyone in Eve that wants to conquer a planet have to rent dust-playing mercs? What will make the matches balanced, I mean, strategically, you would want to attack mostly with an overwhelming force, right?

Eve players pays isk to dust player, dusties pays for gear in isk. Will dust player have any strategic interest in what goes on in the Eve universe, except maximizing their salaries?

I see someone talking about districts on the dust forums, is that a strategic asset giving benefits to dust corps holding them?

DUST already affects faction warfare; the results of DUST fights affect how the faction warfare struggle turns out. I believe that the next stage of the plan is that DUST planetary sov will affect the effectiveness of POS (player owned stations) at the moons of the planet - and that means real money in the EVE universe. People will pay very well for a bonus that makes their reaction farms and research POS more efficient.

The only luck I had today was to have you as my opponent.

pos = player owned STRUCTURE :)
