I miss that too, you shoulda seen us take on the Defiance haters back in April...we were pretty awesome Defiance Troll Busters.

But you know, you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

i plan on selling my ps3 within the next 3-4 weeks to get ready for ps4 so yeah if defiance does not make a cross over to ps4 (which i dont think will happen, will cost trion more money on a dead horse) the next month will be my last playing the game (even tho i have a season pass) trying to get the echelon to trusted for the platinum trophy ...

It been a bumpy road but I do not miss the old days at all. I really did not like Nathan Richardson but I have lots of faith in Chris Lena and since his post introducing himself while back things are getting worked on and fixed but working in the right direction I say.

ahh April I remember saying "this game will fail" posts and venting my anger 1 too many times but I say the good days are yet to come!!!

You could level enemies with the Berserker - and god forbid we ever got to experience a Grenadier one (for the later folk - it was nerfed too early when mod synergies didn't even exist - well at least not the mods.)

I miss not having to que for ages in hope for a game of PvP.
I miss not having to que for ages for Co-op.
I miss having people everywhere whatever the time.

Over 2 gamertags I have 100% the game twice! As much as i enjoy the game, my highlight being getting a legendary VBI AR from a dark matter arkfall. I'm checking out for the last time and before anyone asks, all my loot has been handed out fairly!

It's funny what you can see when you finally take the blinders off. Sure, you can glorify your defense of Defiance but the game was entirely mismanaged from the start, due to obvious reasons given what happened to (most of) the development team. Defiance Troll Busters... so what do you call it when the trolls were right?

hygh
09-26-2013, 06:34 PM
trolls are never right. they are the people that complain that they game isn't the way they want it (them winning all the time), the people that complain about somebody esle's weapon being stronger then theirs own even though the person worked hard to make their weapon powerful, the ones that complain to get good things removed, and the people that used to drive their vehicle at an arkfall.

GAH!!! Emergencies used to give keys?!?

You mean they had a purpose other than unwanted, invisible Volge annoyances that spawn in the middle of the road and drop you on your way to something you *want* to do?

Whats funny to me is everyone was complained about the high prices but atleast when prices was high the market was stable. Today the market is garbage and tomorrow it will be worse. They have made tier 4's even easier to pull legendary guns when the market is already flooded with legends. The forums have become noob haven selling there purps, blues, and anything else knowone wants.

Trion needs to figure out that there is two types of players in this game. They have not figured out how to please either.
1 the people who actually play the game
2 the buyers and sellers

I still enjoy the game. lol

Some of the bugs were funny though. I guess I miss some of those.

Though I don't play much now a days, but I can't really play a game for hours on end without it just not being enjoyable. I don't know how people can play games like Call of Duty for hundreds of hours and not get sick of the game.

Yeah I submitted a Suggestion on their Official Defiance suggestion list, but it seems to have been taken down. My current clans ran out last month and the numbers have been steadily dropping ever since.

Thinking of bailing myself, Their FB page and forum presence has dissapeared and the few that still play no longer talk to or assist anyone.

I miss when Trion's reputation was established with the launch of an MMO (I refer to Rift) and gave credibility to the reality that an MMO could be delivered as it should be - virtually bug-free.

Then everything went downhill.

Things I miss... lots of clan mates being online at any given hour, servers that seemed to run better than they do now, more people working together at arkfalls, and getting revived when I needed to be revived.

Things I don't miss... the old development team, the old Community Manager, lighting the lanterns, and the North Point Volge siege location.

getting revived when I needed to be revived.

I revive anyone I see down.....or at least try.

I stopped this morning to help out a hunter that decided to try to take 3 volge by his/her self in the wide open....only to have them evacuate and leave me there to try to take out 3 volge with no cover. Needless to say I ran a zig zag pattern trying to dodge laser fire and get the hell out of there!

I miss the days where I was learning co-op levels. Now I know them better than the back of my hand. I miss the days where I didn't ask myself why at arkfalls they sooo simple and get somewhat harder for the last 5-15 percent health on them. I miss the day of walking into my first volge in the road and was so much FUN. Now I just know the attack pattern and it just same thing and from time they came out I think they de-buffed in health now and stop and drop to the ground way to often now as well.

I miss when Trion servers went down so much and ahh the DAS BOOT going on and they gave us bonus xp or boost day/days. I miss the days when other too ban a post sonic and MODS would pop into threads and say sup and give out movie/music suggestions

I miss shotguns that where like real shot guns...

I miss rocket launchers that actually shot ROCKETS, not oversized glowing spitballs..

I miss weapons that had appropriate synergies and bonuses..

I miss Hamidon and weekly raids... *sigh*

hmmm stuff i miss!

my shotgun it took me a month to find my perfect ( I WAS VERY SPECIFIC WOULDNT TAKE ANYTHING ELSE ) auto fragger it had to have electric for the nano, veteran synergy, xp was a dmg roll, it had a fire rate 10% ego on full reload and a +8 mag ( MAG WAS 23 WITHOUT Extended mag. the minute i got it i went out and killed a few things, then got off the game only to wake up the next morning and trion patched it. it no longer had a fire rate and no longer had a +8 mag it was a stupid 12 or 13 mag F N ticked me off i think i lost all hope for them then and it all just went down from there.

Speaking as someone who is wandering the new frontier alone, and gets in over her head once and a while, I'm sincerely grateful for people like you. If after such a thing they leave, I'll not press my luck and leave also. If they stay, I'll stay til the end.

Having someone walk up, look down at you, then walk away and leave is the worst.

I love jumping off my ATV and throwing fire to distract when I see someone the Volge have blasted the shields off of.
Even when they then run off and abandon, I know I did right.
