Anticlimactic announcement, wouldn't you say?

at times i do feel ppl give trion def team a raw deal.

they advised us of the release date afew weeks back, they make an announcement to say when the servers are coming down on the same day they announced it would be released but people are still not happy.

ill await the new threads later today and tomo where people complain how the dlc is broke and shoulda waited longer to release it..

...No they didn't, they said it would be released in march, that's it. The only other time a date was mentioned was in a developer interview video trick did for massively that was never announced on the forums, it was one of two dlc updates that were made on other websites instead of their main forum.

They have been really quiet about this DLC, despite the opposition to some of the changes and you wonder why people aren't happy?

Oh and we've said it's not ready based on the testing.

No and I don't expect them to. Those will be the final patch notes, any time they've done "draft" notes, they were nearly identical to the final release notes.

I used to be a die-hard "Trionista", badukas. I wanted Defiance to thrive and be so amazing.
It can still be an outstanding game; honestly, It could be if It were given the attention that It deserves and if "The Company" were to listen and work with the community.
Now We can't even get a response from ANYONE at "The Company" at all.

No matter how much we want them to succeed and try to help them with this, I feel their biggest threat is from themselves.

Their continuing BUMBLING of getting things done on time to release to PS3 is starting to really piss me off. Once again they screw those of us that don't have a season pass into letting those that do have a 2-week start on it. Why, oh why, can't they get this crap done ON TIME!

The first DLC was released to PS3 store on the same day as everyone else. Since then, they've been on a 2-week delay and frankly, I find it ridiculous that they can't adhere to a KNOWN SCHEDULE after making that mistake once. This is the 3rd time, same mistake. Some cannot learn.

Thanks for the updates Arsenic.

I'll keep tuning in during the day, curious to see how the patching goes. Once people start reporting back I'll know if I'll be playing tonight. Or patching tonight and playing tomorrow.

Don't have much hope but, I'll wait and see what play is like after the DLC goes in.

Defiance is my fourth MMO, and if things turn out as bad as they sound in test, it will be the first time I left a game "on bad terms", kinda depressing for me.

See.
Successful incentive plan for you to buy the season pass.
Working as intended, yes?

Next time you'll know to invest wisely in the season pass.

Could you please direct me to that advisement. I missed any such advisement from Trion to us and I would be very surprised if it existed.

It did not exist, there was no announcement on any official source that I know of. There was a vid posted on Youtube, in the description of that vid 3/11/2014 was mentioned. Still not sure if this post was made accidently, if it was a leak of some sort, or if was a very poor attempt at stealth marketing. But it was not an Official Announcement ny any description.

LOL yes working as intended...

next MMO from some OTHER developer might get me to buy season pass if the price was right...it's not the $10 per, it's the delay madness that has me miffed. Well you know that already.

A few weeks back, all they said was "DLC in march" guess he took that as an announcement date.

Posted one day before it's supposed to go live... brilliant! Couldn't even bring myself to throw a favorite down on that tweet, let alone give it a RT.

Advanced notice? What's that all about?

Hey Arsenic, do you think the devs regret allowing us to have PTS access? It is impossible to hide this bs when we got players like you in there diggin' through it.

This scoring system is a game breaker, the reintroduction of the ridiculously high salvage matrix costs, which even the devs said was broken, and I thought they said we wouldn't get data recorders anymore as story/Dlc content.

That's Defiance for you -- Occasionally 1 step forward but ALWAYS two steps back.
