Well with only hours remaining until Defiance, what is everyone doing to prepare? Are you getting your bags of Snacks and Bottles of Drinks ready, or making final preparations with your clan so that everyone is on the same page? DO you guys even know exactly what your loadouts will look like?

Personally, I'm just counting down the hours at this point, and trying to recruit the last few stragglers into my clan, but that's just me. I have an Idea of the Weapons that I'll be using, and I'm double-checking my arkfall codes. No need to go in unprepared I say.

I took the next couple days off work, got my counter running down and alarm set for launch time.

Mountain Dew... check!
Hot Pockets... check!
Extra soft toilet paper and baby wipes... check!

Well my too do list on launch day:

- Get out of Jury Duty
- Pick up game at GameStop
- Take kids to Monkey Joe's
- Take kids home and put down for a nap
- Bask in the install and patching screens
- HOPEFULLY play before I have to go to work

We will see how that all works out.

I've got Mug Root Beer, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper for drinks. Then I'll go to the store, get various chips, maybe some salsa, buy some hamburger meat and cook those to perfection and add a little cheddar with a Honey and Sesame Seed Bun and then go pick up my copy and play the **** out of defiance.

One thing though, I have heard the game is pretty hard to play by yourself, if anyone reads this, would anyone want to team up for awhile? Not really looking for a clan, just someone who is going to have my back when **** gets real.

Still waiting for amazon (uk) to even send a dispatch email for the UE, wondering if getting the SE from steam will be worth it ... steam rewards, extra pre-order awards, and play from zero-hour. Main concern will be that the UE bonuses apply correctly when they arrive if I've already started playing SE.

Soloing isn't too bad for the most part, there will be plenty of people around doing the same things at the same time, so you'll usually find help nearby, and on PC/EU beta people seemed pretty helpful even if you're not in their group. I don't have voice chat and the text chat is pretty poor, so I went through AMB3 solo.

Pepsi & Pop Tarts ,check. Bucket of Cotton Candy ,check. Life time supply of Peeps, check.. turning off the Phone Ringer...ahh well I'll do that after I get my PS3 Copy. I'll most likely be playing PC before I even get to pick up my PS3 copy. But I plan everything out and will be playing both at the same time Alternating both with just a pivit of my chair. . (Just hoping I still get the Challenger for the PS3 still haven't gotten any answers on that one.)

2/3 seem right on target, but if you have not acquired a poopsock for the launch, then I must question your commitment to this game.....

I must not Clam.
Clam is the mind-killer.
Clam is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my Clam.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the Clam has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Being annoyed that it's apparently the release has been shifted back by nine days; probably having to cancel my pre-order, then buy it on the net.
Oh Australia; you so silly.

Isn't Clam before the Storm a reference to Mass Effect's almost obligatory sex scene before final missions?

I think I must've had the only celibate Shepherd.

I'm good! Got a $125 food order arriving via Peapod this evening, I think I've installed the digital download version, cranking out a couple of gallons of iced tea (Luzianne: straight, no lemon nor sugar nor milk). I think I'm ready...

Getting ready to take a nap so I can pull an all nighter. Gonna roll solo cus none of the clan I have played with for years want to stop playing day z to play defiance with me cus there is no open world pvp and no shadow wars is not open world pvp its a glorified battleground. Gonna do pve till I get a decent shotty and a respark shield so I can cloak and destroy people in pvp. Will work my way up to the perk that reduces explosion aoe dmg range so I can combat all the bunnyhopping gernade spammers.

Sooooo... i bought the digital ver from Trion. No email with a link, but i found it under account management. seems it just installed the 10Meg loader. All i have is an icon and login screen. It will not let me log in to patch.
Anyone else having this issue?

not the best place to ask this, try the search function, you will find some threads about that issue. I reseted my trion password as recommended by some users and that did the trick for me, try it.

Thanks for responding, and yes it worked like a charm. As for not the best place to ask this.... the threads i found were no help nor was the FAQ answer of....

Click on Account from the patcher window.
You will then be asked to login. Please login with your Trion account login details.
After you are logged in, click on APPLY CODE.
Apply your 20 digit Defiance PC code from the back of your manual.
Once applied, please try to log into the Defiance Patcher using your Trion account details.

I bought the PC download ver, so no code to enter.
Again... tx for the advice... changing my PW worked. :)

Mountain Dew doesn't have caffeine in Canada :(

I'll probably try to login tonite just to create a character and confirm my bonus items are there. It'll start my bonus XP clock, but I don't really care about it TBH. I'm in no rush to level up.

All shopping bought for the week on Saturday. Holidays taken at work (only needed to take 4 days for the whole week because of German bank holidays...bonus!).

Ark codes up to 120 been claimed for days. All Steam codes applied to my account (deluxe, pre-order & beta).

Everything installed and regularly logging in to patch (there have been a few game and launcher patches) - worked around Steam's lack of download/install links.

Ready to go! Bed early...up for the 9am (CEST) launch.

As the great Keith Lemon would say: ready to smash its back doors in. ooooossshhhh!
