Wondering if anyone is able to get back on after the new patch? I even deleted the old game data file and re-installed it , same result. Used bits for skills in weapons yet can't logon.Wondering how this is not somehow illegal?Realtime bonus should be for game awarded only not bit-bought bonuses.Those should be game time.http://forums.defiance.com/images/smilies/mad.png

It's because the servers for PS are still down for NA and EU. They should be back up any minute, according to their server status page (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?138507-10-26-13-NA-EU-Server-Update-(PC-PS3-360)-10-AM-PDT-5-PM-GMT), unless it gets pushed back again.

If I had to guess why it's taking longer for us it might be because they are fixing the Crater lag issue. Don't think other platforms were having the problem.

Is it just me, I can't get past the new patch. It keeps saying this at me
CRITICAL,
PATCH ERROR
I waited to play this evening cos of a patch up date now this. It's not fair. We've all spent good money on this game plus extras, and now it's all gone Pete Tong.
Get your finger out Trion Worlds, cos we don't demand a lot, we just wanna play the game.

You need to read that server page again. They asked for an hour, now another hour. then when that time is up another 2 hours. This is what we have come to expect every Time we get an update or new content from them.

I just now got off live chat with support and this is an on going problem worldwide. So, I was informed that it "may" be rectified in an hour or so. Sit tight and if your old enough go have a couple of beers like I am now. If not just be patient, if that's at all possible considering the multitude of error this game has had and obviously still does.

The stupid thing is to not have the server status present on the game itself.not everyone wants to power up the pc every time they go to play defiance.How logical is that genius?

It had nothing to do with the servers being down. After reading the forums I decided to wait to patch until they said the servers were up. I still got the critical error. It seems rather stupid to make assumptions without having all of the facts.

This is a joke; all other systems are back up but the PS3? This is total BS! The weekend is the only good time to get PVP going and now that is lost. Doing a patch on the weekend right in the middle of the day when most people play? The person that did this should be fired at once. I have lost every last bit of faith in Trion and their ability to run this game. Then where is the person that is keeping us informed? Let me see 45 min past the time she was to do the next update that I’m sure will say nothing new anyway. Oh well time to start looking for the game to replace Defiance.

PSN version and the patching seems to be going smoothly here(though the installing is taking a hilariously longer time to complete than the download took). So that might be the problem

Edit: Nope it's effecting the PSN version too, As soon as the patch was finished installing I got 6-7 "saving content. Please do not turn off your system" bars and then got the "patch error" screen.

I just flipped the ol' PS3 on to try again. So far, no patch error, but, go figure, it says it's going to take 6 hours to download.

So....toomanyhourstocount for servers down/patch error, now 6+ more.

I know the feeling... I was right by making the correct decision to NOT get a copy of this game for the PS3. My update went off without a hitch... just got disconnected at the first major arkfall that I joined, decided to call it a night after that. However, I was overjoyed to see that my legendary scalpel was renamed: Extra Life Scalpel after the update was finished.

Trying to play any game like this when an update first goes live is just a recipe for disaster.

Trying to play any game like this when an update first goes live is just a recipe for disaster.

I am wishing I had just gotten it for PC rather than on PS3 at first. It plays so much smoother on PC than console. I prefer the controller though (except for the sharpshooting savior, can't silver it on PS3, but easily got gold on PC the 2nd try.) Absolutely no lag when I play on PC.

It would be a lot easier for updates if they didn't have to go through Sony and Microsoft. I do know I'd like everyone that plays to have fun and with disconnects that just makes it worse. If I could transfer over my 3000+ ego char over to PC, I would. Oh well, just have to do all the pursuits over again!
