Just hope the story is a little more longer and has you do more things than just get this and that then fight solo. Hopefully though some of the new instanced arkfalls will be a good addition and the changes to gernades, the addition of stems. Hopefully it will be a bit better than DLC 1.

Also iare the servers down for 1 hour or 4 hours?

No update yet for me, or it lasted for 0.06 seconds.
Push the update button and it goes right to 'play'.

Looking forward to several things in this DLC, mostly quality of life changes. The grenade changes really not so much.

The missions in this DLC are better than the first and what we would have expected from the episodic content.

-.-'' sorry that the PS3 is a ****y console that dosent know how to get things runing properly ? but why complane about it here when people are trying to be happy and have some fun wating for the update to come out. and you know what even if you cant get the DLC till a few days from now
it dosent mean you can pertisapate in the content and still pick up guns and weapons and getnades and spikes and kill the boss and hang out with your friends . it just means you cant use any of your new found weapons till AFTER you get your DLC . so
even if you think your geting the shaft while you wait for SONY to get there heads out there pow butts and clean off the pow stalko it dont mean you gotta be mad at all of us. and take it out on our happy little forum post that we are trying to be constructive with while we the people of the defiance gameing world wait pasently for this new content to be inputed into ALL the servers around the world :P

make me have to lecture you now im annoyed.

BACK ON TOPIC

im looking forword to the influx of players tat are going to have the DLC tonight the rush of 100ds of people runing the quest lines gathering the objects nad items thay need to call down there ark falls. and i cant wait to hit the major arkfall and to face the boss.

seems trick BUFFED the SOB 4 times just to make him strong enough for all of the whiners that said he wasent strong enough O.O hes a beast if you dont have 15-max players fighting him. go watch the vid of the live steam last friday o.o it was bloody ....

Cool,
Thats the second time ive heard people having missing textures recently, maybe they will fix it in the update.
As for clans they are going to give boosts to good/skilled clans in the update so all clans in general should be more active. im in nuclear rubber but i don't really do anything with them and i dont see as many of them about these days. personally the thing im most looking forward to is less "General Steve's" i dont know how good the improvement will be but it is meant to be better

Lesson here little child, you so could not lecture me if you tried. I see you are back to blaming Sony because Trion did not submit the DLC in time to go through the processes for the store. As for my friends; yes I will be playing with them, but collecting weapons we cannot use is no fun at all. But you go on with your annoyed self and have fun!

It's a conspiracy again PS3 users, they need more of you to be season holders so they stitched you all up and blamed Sony *winks.*

Life's a ***** then you marry one and die.

It's a game.

Keeping those vitally important factors in mind just be happy.

It's not like you got screwed to the point they closed the game.

Now that's something to complain about.

Yeah all i could see was the sky and General Steve's as far as the eyes could see! Deleted the newest patch and now its downloading them all and the new one too i think. hopefully it will resolve its self :)

This comment appears a lot and I really want to highlight it and point out that copy and paste will never work in any game. Copy paste modify, perhaps but still a LOT of work. Not only are there multiple inputs, different channels and different platforms. There are also things like voice elements being tied into the chat. As much as I make negative comments about the low priority for the chat system fix, if it was easily fixed they would have done it.

Edit: Let's also not forget about different codebases and resources for each engine.

Rift has a game engine they spent years writing specifically for that game.

DEFI uses the years old HAVOK game engine.

It'd be like bolting a VW Bug drivers door on an Oldsmobile.
You could do it with a welder and a big enuff hammer, but it aint gonna be pretty, and it aint gonna work so good.

PvP is an odd subject in this game...
The game is in a setting where PvP would either be 'group up or die' (so Open PvP on most of the map.)
As it is now, it's a nice little game mode to participate in when you want something a little different to the mobs AI but is not a main aspect if the game and is very much a mode to keep the PvPers happy...

-Patch notes seem to say there are different spikes (rarities) for calling down arks. Can someone elaborate?
-What high tech pillars?
-Stims?
-Daily/weekly log-in rewards? See they just don't explain this stuff sufficiently

PvP wouldn't even need that many fixes to be fairly well balanced. Some adjustments to the movement accuracy of surge bolters and to the way cloak works, making Thick Skinned work on the shot that takes out your shield... things would then be considerably better.

But given how few people play PvP these days, I can understand that Trion is prioritizing PvE. PvP needs a community to really thrive, but by now the majority of the most motivated PvPers are long gone... We'll see if the changes to matchmaking help. I don't play PvP very much anymore, but I'd still like to have played Military Academy more than just once :/

I posted this in another thread, but thought it'd be better put here.

The DLC, along with the previous one, made some changes to the core game files. This created the "corrupt" patch file you see in your storage. Deleting this file causes the game to create a new launcher file with the updated information. This will most likely happen with the other three DLC's.

I installed my disk to the HDD so It only took about 5 minutes to recreate the file and go back to patching. Just some food for thought.

The only times I see PvP communities survive is when there are 'clan war' settings available, giving clan/guild/faction leaders the ability to declare and accept war invites on/from other clans so that PvP can take place anywhere any when and the leaders get together to organise bigger events (such as full scale wars, skirmishes etc.) normally these communities also set their own rules too to remove the use of OP or broken game elements...

Very rarely are such things taken into account in MMO's now though...

Well It's OFFICIAL Trion couldn't find a clue in a bag full of clues covered in clue glue, this is why they need to do major updates at times when it will least affect the players. I mean if you really want to keep the folks who pay to play happy keep the game up when they wanna play. I mean really oh wahhhh!!! so you have to pay some staff a little extra to come in after hours to do the job, well that's called customer service which Trion seems to lack in spades. So I will just have to continue biting my pillow and taking their medicine if I continue to play this game.

"Hi all,

We encountered some hang-ups with the database that took up more time than expected to resolve. Due to that delay, we're extending the downtime an additional ** 4 hours ** to ensure we have appropriate time to do verification. That brings our new ETA to 6PM PST / 2AM GMT.

Thank you all for your patience.

I'm having a hard time choking down the idea that the database caused an additional 4 hours of downtime. I'm not trying to troll either. I have some IRL experience with databases (of many kinds) and it just doesn't add up that any "glitch" would cause an additional 4 hours unless you hosed something like the inventory table. Even at that, I can't imagine the table would be larger than a few gigs which means a meaty-okra NOC system should be able to process a scripted repair in a few mins -- not hours :(

servers are incredibly complicated and expensive, and running an mmo style game requires more than just massive hardware. I own a small social network with less than 250,000 users and i run it on a $12,000 +/- server i had built on a BUDGET, and i still get complaints of lag. This game is fun but lacks the real paying user base to fund a real server setup. There is another thread where people are complaining left and right about trions "bad" servers, and they even compare them to blizzards, saying if they can then trion should be able to. Most of you guys have absolutely no clue about what server configurations really entail, or that blizzards game servers cost over 1 million us dollars total. Trion is doing an excellent job. This game is fun, fast paced, intuitive and engaging. In regards to that guy claiming to have experience with databases, dont you realize that every single element in the game, including player and account details needs its own table, some tables are shared others are not, and releasing a DLC requires integrating new tables into existing databases without any problems? All that being said, I was just joking about the servers being up, I am bored.

You're doing something wrong. I have 4 servers, that ran me about $420 each in a datacenter in Florida on 1gbps pipes that have more than 2,000,000 users/unique-hits per day (about 670ish websites) across all 4 atom-class servers -- yes, atom class. If you're using Linux, have a decent dedicated T2-T1 connection, with less than 1,000,000 subscribers to a CGI/PHP/ASP site, no one should ever complain of lag -- even if you're using something as bulky as buddypress.

This is so typical of Trion.

Not only can they not stick to a schedule, they apparently comprehend the passage of time, 'approximately 4 hours downtime'.......nearly 12 hours frackin' later and they still won't have not got their act together.

Sorry if I seem a tad upset, but having been waiting nearly all day for this dlc, this takes the biscuit, the mug of coffee and the box of chocolates.

3 posts on my profile and I think all of them are commenting on Trion's 'perfect' track record of customer relations......

Since the thread was closed before I had the chance to answer, here's my response.


If only they had actually listened to ANYONE who played the "alpha" Servers. Now called PTS. We wouldn't be in this mess.

They listened on the guns (or so they said ) i don't know how much of a difference my complaints made in that regard, dahanese said they went back and changed some things with them to make them better.

They listened when we said the boss was weak and they buffed it twice.

But when it comes to the main issue, they refused to answer any real questions or concerns about it and avoided them like the plague. Even the live stream with ktam, they avoided the issue.

-.-'' sorry that the PS3 is a ****y console that dosent know how to get things runing properly ? but why complane about it here when people are trying to be happy and have some fun wating for the update to come out. and you know what even if you cant get the DLC till a few days from now
it dosent mean you can pertisapate in the content and still pick up guns and weapons and getnades and spikes and kill the boss and hang out with your friends . it just means you cant use any of your new found weapons till AFTER you get your DLC . so
even if you think your geting the shaft while you wait for SONY to get there heads out there pow butts and clean off the pow stalko it dont mean you gotta be mad at all of us. and take it out on our happy little forum post that we are trying to be constructive with while we the people of the defiance gameing world wait pasently for this new content to be inputed into ALL the servers around the world :P

make me have to lecture you now im annoyed.

BACK ON TOPIC

im looking forword to the influx of players tat are going to have the DLC tonight the rush of 100ds of people runing the quest lines gathering the objects nad items thay need to call down there ark falls. and i cant wait to hit the major arkfall and to face the boss.

seems trick BUFFED the SOB 4 times just to make him strong enough for all of the whiners that said he wasent strong enough O.O hes a beast if you dont have 15-max players fighting him. go watch the vid of the live steam last friday o.o it was bloody ....

Try spending $200 on just the game on day one, and thats not counting bits, boosts etc.

Day 1 veteran here. This game really wasn't that bad, still isn't. It is just that gamers as a group are generally impatient now (example: anyone remember levelling in the original ever quest games? Now look at wow... impatience won out). I have faith that by season two, if the game is still alive, we will be very happy with where it is. But, then again, I still think the army will pull its head out of its ***, though it hasn't happened since I joined. Fact is, there are decent people at Trion, trying to fix this, they are just in over their heads for now, that is all.

Speaking of day ones, I'm a day 1 Beta EQer. I remember the arsenumbing hell-levels very well. I remember running across Keranas hoping that your Invis or SOE didn't drop and if it did, the pure adrenaline rush you would get. However, in those days, when the fastest server was less powerful than my Motorola Razr Maxx HD, it was expected that a database of 10 million subscribers would take a little while to update, 8 hours was the longest I remember, mainly because they started the patches at 2am in the morning and were usually done by the time I logged in and started playing.

I was expecting more honestly. I've finished all the base "content" in a week. (granted i'm a "content consumer" type of gamer) Other than pvp content i've done everything. I wanted to get a feel for the game before i bought any additional DLC's or packs. As far as i can tell, it isn't worth the cost considering the many alternative free to play games out there.

Additionally, i tend to judge games heavily on their community. And honestly, after reading these forums for the last few days, i'm singularly unimpressed. The community seems to be up-in-arms against trion and have some very good points that don't seem to be being addressed.

Most of the hate boys are what we like to call trolls. I thinks they really just wanna piss everyone else off cause they get some perverse satisfaction out of it. For being truly the first of its kind, I think Trion did a great job with defiance. I just wish they had known how great it could have been back before they released. I know they had a deadline with the show, but that should have been coordinated better. Hopefully the game will go the way of the show, get tons of financial backing, and season two will blow our minds.

These downtimes are fairly common for MMOs. But, adding two hours for the grenade change is salt in the wound. It's like Defiance is actually the setting for some larger game that Trion plays - where they collect subjects together and then find different ways to piss them off.
