Ok, so what is Glyph?

Where it used to say Trion Worlds in the upper left when you login, now it says Glyph with a little Mass Effect/Borg symbol.

What's the deal? You guys finally going out of business?

Maybe they're trying to change their name to Glyph - put this whole Trion thing behind em...

Wouldn't surprise me, to be honest.

Regardless, I won't support this company... no matter what they change their name to.

It is the new system that hear's everyone when they bit*h and immediately de-spawn's they're vehicles. It is specifically designed to lag spike you or kick you off if you complain about four blue's in a T4 box.

Well, I guess that explains it... kind of.

Still not seeing where "high quality" fits into that scenario, but then again, I'm just the idiot who spent money on that "high quality" Defiance season pass.

I find it a little odd that they would not advertise this on their own forum.

I'll find it odder still if this company exists next year.

Here's a link for more information. (http://www.trionworlds.com/en/news/2014/03/trion-worlds-announces-glyph-digital-games-platform/) It's part of an effort to help other developers get their PC games discovered.

If you currently play more than one game from Trion, it will make it easier for you to do so. You can keep all your games updated from one launcher. If you're not into that, that's okay, and you can still just launch Defiance from there. I haven't had any trouble with it so far, personally. :o

I'm sorry about your chair. :(

In other news, it's also on our Trion Worlds Facebook page and Twitter. I figured there might be some confusion over it so I stalked the forums for a thread on it, and behold.

Here's another link if anyone's interested. (http://venturebeat.com/2014/03/11/trion-unveils-its-glyph-digital-games-platform-for-discovering-hardcore-digital-pc-games-exclusive/)

It says 'we’ve reached more than 10 million gamers, supported 25 million transactions, and more than 50 million downloads'. In other words all their games have contributed to those numbers, doesn't reflect the current numbers i'd wager.

As for number of downloads, does that include patches, hotfixes, re-installs, validations etc.

No offence but you all want to knock other smaller developers out of the gaming market quickly or just want them to be as much of a laughing stock?

In all honesty, after the train wreck known as Defiance(especially after this latest cruddy update) I would be very surprised if anyone would want to throw their hat in with Trion Worlds, that is if they actually wanted to make money and survive. Again no offense.

I just don't see people beating down your door with ya'lls track record. I've not played any of your other games because , well one I'm not a computer gamer, and well after getting my first taste of Trion Worlds through Defiance, I'm likely not to play any of your other games, and be more apt by word of mouth to have all my friends stay away too, and my students, seeing as I'm a teacher.

Now, you had no problem with the LAUNCHER, correct?
Since, there are still quite a few bugs ingame... XD

Just making sure I get it right. :)
