If this has been talked to death, sorry but I didn't see anything with a quick search.

Do the Volge seiges pop on a timer like the old Afflicted ones did (pretty sure they would pop the same time each hour, every hour). Or are they more random than that?

So far the answer seems to be they wait untill I decide to do something else and then pop when I am not looking. I love doing the seiges but have had a bad string where I dont find them till they are 1/2 way done.

I suspect they are random, because they have been out long enough that if there was a schedule people would be talking about it. But it dosent hurt to ask.

I think it depends on which 'Shard' or server you're in. If you can manage to stay on the same server without logging off or be disconnected, I would like to think they spawn every 1.5 hours. There are 5 siege locations, but only 4 of those pop at the same time.

When the sieges are up on the map, they don't start the timer until a player captures a point. A good player would wait till more players arrive before capturing a point. *hint hint* :D

I think I read in another thread they are every 1 hr 15min, +/- 15 min... Not sure if that's right tho.

i've done every seige 3+ times. I wonder if others are having same questions / issues?
still haven't been able to get pursuit complete
doesn't seem to be that great when you get 1st and score tier 10 on the rewards...2 blue and 3 key codes, not much of a reward

Pretty sure there is a thread saying this pursuit is bugged, I have done all the seiges at least once and no pursuit either. I think I need to find a spot where I can farm some NPC's and be facing the right direction to see the Seige when it pops. (still need my 15000 score)

Indeed there have been multiple threads about the bug. Live Chat support can manually fix it for the character.

As for score, you don't even need to be there from the beginning. The first stages are nice to have of course as they will give score and xp, it is the later stages though where your score can really go up. Later stages have more control points and more control points means more bonus score. As a result, soloing a Viscera can net you over 3k points. Which pretty much is my strategy: avoid the zerg and try to defend the spot with the least defenders. As long as you manage to keep the upper hand, the score from killing the Volge will be split among fewer players and at the same time you will ensure that the bonus stays up.

It is bugged. I didn't use live chat I submitted a ticket , and it was resolved the next day.

I read somewhere that the next wave of sieges spawns 1 hour after the last siege ends. Again, however, as an NA PS3 player, that information is completely useless as I can't stay logged in that long without their shoddy servers disconnecting me.

On another note, if the bug with the pursuit has been reported many many many many many times, why do we still have to individually submit a ticket to get it fixed? If they can't get the requirement to work, they need to remove it. It's disrespectful to the players to waste our time like that, and it's incredibly wasteful of customer support resources.

Well you opened that door:
What you corrected is spelling (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/spelling) (orthography (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/orthography)) not grammar (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/grammar).


Sorry, I just couldn't resist :)

use an SMG, I get close to 30k every siege as long as I get there with at least 10 minutes, 15K even if I get there with more than 7 minutes left.
