Greetings ark hunters,

Thank you for your patience while we straightened out our recent server stability issues. To show our gratitude, this weekend will be a Bonus Loot Weekend commencing now and lasting until 11:59 PM Pacific on Sunday, March 23. During the Bonus Loot Weekend, you'll have a 25% increased chance to earn loot when participating in a variety of game activities that offer loot drops. The loot categories are weapons, weapon mods, shields, and grenades.

In addition to the Bonus Loot Weekend, we'll be granting players who logged in between March 11 and March 20 the following bonuses:
All players will receive two Tier 4 Lock Boxes.
All players who own the Gunslinger Trials DLC will also receive two VBI Gunslinger Weapon Caches.
These lock boxes have been delivered as of this posting, no logout required.

Again, we thank you for your patience in this matter; we take server stability and minimizing downtime extremely seriously, and we apologize to all who were adversely impacted.

- The Defiance Team

i got an oj vbi tacc auto shotgun...with no nano, backpack synergy, accuracy, melee, recoil, ego on full reload, and mag...so basically worst case rolls, probably master it and get reload on melee kill, lol...but it is an oj. even though everyone is crying nerf on drop rates, i have had more ojs in th last two weeks than i have had from when i came in week 2 of release until now, so i can't really complain too much.

also got a purple shield but it was the vehicle damage one and a purple slugger.

I got the white hat and old faithful. Also a VBI EEC SMG . just wish it had a nano. That groundsplitter looks interesting as well. I may try it.

Thanks.

While i saw you had done a difficult work those last weeks, it's definitely a really good compensation. Trion "do the job" recently to raise this game at the level which it deserves. That's much appreciated.

And also, Scapes and Kiwibird are an essential contribution for the players.

So, again, thanks!

I think, Ocho did a good job of Filling in for Scapes while he was away this week, as well. :)

I really liked what I got out of the boxes! =)

-The Adversary

-Colonel's Hat

VBI EEC SMG
Nano Effect = Shock
Synergy = Rolling Thunder
EXP Roll = Not Mastered
-0.10 Accuracy
x1.15 Crit Mult
x1.05 DMG
10% EGO power recharge on full reload

KLOC EVO Pistol
Nano Effect = Fire
Synergy = Run-n-Gun
EXP Roll = Not Mastered
x0.95 Reload
-0.30 Accuracy
-0.50 Accuracy
15% DMG on next grenade after a kill
x1.10 Fire Rate

The rolls on the pistol are far from great, but it's still a legendary to top off the other things!

Although I hunt bugs to help Trion with no request for any form of reward, I am very grateful for the 4 boxes.
It was nice to see Trion rewarding us players for the bug hunt.

For me personally, this bug hunt is far from over, and I continue to test several more instances and situations.
I hope, albeit no reward is offered, others will also keep on testing and sending in bugs, in order to smoothen out this terrific game.

Yes, my friends, you, the players, too, can help us making the game as it should be.
And although I cannot reward you with more than thanks, you have my deepest sympathy.

Thank you, Trion.
Thank you players.

Looks like most are pretty happy with the boxes, as am I.
I received a gunslinger outfit, a white hat and the gunslinger wolfhound variant with double crit rolls! It was a rare blue version. So the WarMaster better watch out!

On a side note, I have had 9 tier 4 lock boxes in a row with all rare/blue weapons....until last night. Pulled 3 purple/epics from one box. Looks like luck is finally starting show his face around these parts again.

Thanks Trion, I appreciate the compensation - good call, guys. :)

That is would be really a nice gift if i could log into the game on the PS3 EU server. This is not possible for me since hours. I get allways the time out screen.

Fried chicken for everyone, fellow ark hunters... I received "The Colonel" and the "White Hat" in each of my compensation boxes last night! Now where in the jekk did I put those 11 herbs and spices?

It is rather interesting seeing what everyone received from these four boxes. It seems to have been at least a bit profitable for all those involved.
