I'm having that "critical" issue at the moment and i can't connect to the servers. It just keeps saying Critical Your connection to the DEFIANCE servers has timed out. I have done an internet connection test and restarted my ps3 countless times as well. Any advice?

I'm getting the same. I'm thinking the server is down, cause 10 mins after I got dc'd the devs posted a hotfix server downtime for tomorrow for system crashes. Coincidence? I think not.

I don't think they can tell their time from their d##k, NA says 2am on the 16th and I am getting the same critical.. so I guess you take that 1hr downtime and times it by 10.

that could be the problem for us cause my friends are playing but they are in different time zones :l

I just tried to log in and I'm in Maine said server timeout 3 times so I gave up.

This is just ridiculous, and we hear word none from anyone at Trion...typical - lest it's to lock a thread with the normal cut & paste garbage.

Never seen a game with this much server downtime, really pathetic, and getting old.

I'm in Illinois and have been online since since about 6:30 or 7:00 PM and just signed out a bit ago. I couldn't sign in around 4:30 to 5:00 PM though with the critical errors.

I can't get on at all. Just tried over 10 times and it won't connect. Why does it say "Your connection to the DEFIANCE servers has timed out?" I'm pretty sure MY connection isn't the issue and it would be more accurate to state that "The DEFIANCE servers have failed to connect you, again."

Yep - this is it exactly, my connection is good enough for everything else in the house, but apparently Defiance tonight is just too much...

So How many more posts & threads get ignored on this before they even post one word on the issue?

the downtime note says july 15th 8 p.m PT, so the downtime shouldn't have started until 11 o'clock ET. seems they started about 5 hours early and it still isn't working

It still doesn't make sense why I haven't been able to get on since 7pm EST in this POS game yet friends and clan mates of mine get disconnected like clock work in this game as usual but yet they are still able to get on and play up until now.

The 15th is for EU servers, NA servers are on the 16. Unless Trion got their dates backwards. I've been trying to log in on & off since 7 pm EST with no luck.

7:30pm Pacific time here and have been haveing the same "Critical Error" crap for a while now.

oh ok didn't realise what EU meant.........stupid me i guess. now it makes absolutely no sense for it to be down. besides a massive mess up by Trion

The fact that they don't notify players about issues is the biggest problem.

its probably safe to say whatever they are doing to the EU servers has seriously messed up the NA servers

Well at least I was able to finish MOH Warfighter with this down time. Well worth it, the ending was pretty moving.

over 48 hours of :

SERVERS TIMED OUT
SERVERS UNAVAILABLE
DEFIANCE SERVICE UNAVAILABLE

or bootloop login IE> choose your character...loading screen...right back to SERVER TIMED OUT

cant get any arkfall rewards or weapons get d\cs right as the scoreboards should post, the BETA was more solid than this crap and Im in EASTERN Time Zone... whatever they did since VOLGE... has seriously compromised the stability and any enjoyment to this game.


goood job

I couldn't get on last night either, NA PS3.

After patching and selecting character, the connection timed out when I tried to play.

The fact that they don't notify players about issues is the biggest problem.

I completely agree, it's APPALLING that the server was down for so long last night and not a word from Trion - in fact they still haven't even acknowledged it anywhere. Not here, not on twitter, not on facebook. I'm disgusted and will never make a purchase from Trion again - of course, the likelihood of them having anything new to sell after this Defiance fiasco makes that pretty easy for me...

Anyone been able to play today? I figured I'd check on here and see if it was working before I tried it.

Good thing I'm not trying the challenge hour lol.

It's still very laggy, at times unplayable, but, at least I can log in now unlike last evening. I am constantly being DCed though. I have been concentrating on Arkfalls so I don't know the state of co-op or instance PvP.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably try later tonight. Hopefully this only lasts a day or so.
