April 2 marks an important day in the Defiance universe: it's our birthday! 365 days ago today, Trion Worlds opened the Defiance servers (http://community.defiance.com/en/2013/04/02/defiance-welcome-to-the-new-age) to ark hunters on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. To celebrate, we're adding a 24-hour global boost to XP gain, skill gain, and loot drop rate! However, we're aware that Defiance's anniversary lands on a Wednesday when most ark hunters are not going to be able to celebrate with us. Our solution? A second global boost all this weekend!

EDIT: Players in North America on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will see the boosts implemented shortly, some load testing we were doing was preventing them from starting.

Why do you guys only give us the 3 boosts? When there are more boost to give?

EDIT:


Please do not ignore my question.

The XP gain, skill gain, and loot drop rate boosts are what we decided to give for this event.

Not an acceptable answer by any-means.


This is not the only event I am referring to. All boost weekends have only been the 3. Why? Seems rather cheap if you ask me, but hey it is Trion.


I can also ask again, why only these 3? Why not all boosts?


Asked and answered, we decided on XP gain, skill gain, and loot drop rate boosts for this event.


"because I said so" is no answer to me.


At 5k ego, what good is Xp boost? At 5 million scrip, what good is scrip boost, all weapons at level 20, what good is skill boost?

Still looks like SCRAPES never answered my simple question.

But looks like someone else, asked the SAME thing:

Scapes do you think you could at least push for some type of reputation boost in the future?


Looked into this when requesting the anniversary boosts, we actually don't have global reputation boosts coded for the server. Is it something we can consider working on in the future? I'd like to say yes.

OH WHATS THAT THE ANSWER I WAS WANTING THE WHOLE TIME?
HMMM... SEEMS SCRAPES DOESNT LIKE ME MUCH.

Seemed like a simple enough answer. Why did it take till page 4 to get my answer?
And it wasn't even my question he answered directly.

Also, I'm not understanding the significance of celebrating a yearly "event" when you're (you're meaning Trion) going to just turn around and offer the very same thing over the course of the upcoming weekend... I'm not the smartest man in the world, but I'm not really feeling an overwhelming desire to play the game tonight when I can just get the very same thing over the course of a weekend.

See, now this is a boost that people would really want. How about, 24 hrs of VBI rep given for every emergency or conflict site? Or, anything close to this. XP boosts mean nothing to the players at 5000 EGO, and many of us who have been here a year playing this game are there. Skills? Most everyone at 5000 EGO has everything at 20 already. Think out of the box a little, guys!

I appreciate the double boost, since work will be happening shortly for me. I was almost dismayed at the idea of losing out, because I've got some leveling to do. The three listed boosts are all I care about.

Setting event boosts on 24 hour cycles is good, because it gives everyone a chance to participate, no matter how wonky their schedule might be. Having said that, when it comes to paid boosts, why is Defiance the only MMO that doesn't pause your paid boosts when offline, and forces you into a bizarre 24 hour play stretch to maximize your investment?

I've never been able to get an answer on this. Let's see if it goes ignored yet again....

Glad you asked (again), we're actually in the process of changing how boosts behave, switching from real-world time to gameplay time. We'll announce this change properly when we get closer to implementing it. Worth noting that any active real-world time boosts won't be automatically converted upon implementation. Also worth noting that real-world time boosts will still exist for clans as basing them on gameplay time would be messy.

Our resources are limited and the team is entirely focused on bringing Arktech Revolution to PTS and live. The DLC will affect the game in a very real way while an anniversary event isn't permanent. With regards to development, it comes down to a matter of priority.

Does it mean our anniversary event is somewhat lackluster? Perhaps, yes. But the payoff is that we make good on our announced timeline to ship Arktech Revolution this month.

I can fully understand the issue with a lack of resources. However, I'd rather see the priority focus on fixing some of the major outstanding issues that have been highlighted by the community, rather than pushing the release of the next DLC which will not doubt introduce new bugs.

My ride still pops out of existence regularly, and this was a noted issue months ago....

Not to appear ungrateful, but I'm wondering what management is thinking. What is the roadmap for the Definace game in the near future?

To stay positive, how about 1 year into the game, to celebrate the anniversary, you guys start selling us tshirts and hoodies for cash money? It's a win-win for all involved. Have CC in hand and ready to order:

As irritating as this is, i still find myself eagerly awaiting many of the features of dlc 5. The lack of many of the features being implemented is the reason i stopped playing for so long. So yes irritating that I cant log in, to prep myself for the changes.

EDIT: Speaking of which do we have a release date for dlc 5 yet?

Our resources are limited and the team is entirely focused on bringing Arktech Revolution to PTS and live. The DLC will affect the game in a very real way while an anniversary event isn't permanent. With regards to development, it comes down to a matter of priority.

Does it mean our anniversary event is somewhat lackluster? Perhaps, yes. But the payoff is that we make good on our announced timeline to ship Arktech Revolution this month.

Although that's understandable, couldn't you atleast have given everybody a t4 lockbox and an epic mod cache. And perhaps even give a dlc catche to every dlc owner.

like this.
Everybody: T4, epic mod cache
Dlc owners:
Castithan: Castithan cache
Arkbreaker: Ark cache
7th legion: 7th cache
Gunslinger: Gunslinger cache
And yes that would men Sp holders get it all, as would those others that bought them all.

I am sure everyone would consider that as a better "thank you for playing our bugged game" than the exact same 3 boosts we always get. And not not give us all the boosts? It's supposed to be a birthday celebration! As in party favors for EVERYONE!

But I do not want to celebrate with something you give us once or twice EVERY MONTH. that is NOT a CELEBRATION!!!

Evan,

Thank you for the boosts. Not everyone has already capped out their EGO grid so just because the xp boost has no value to some players doesn't mean it has no value period. As for the loot boost, yes it is all whites and greens but Salvage doesn't grow on trees that we can harvest so it has value to me because I'm occasionally getting an open slot on a weapon at close to EGO 4600 and it has value to players with lower EGO ratings as well. Ditto for skill xp boosts.

It's also great to hear that boosts purchased from the bit store are going to run on game time in the future.

That being said....

Is there a specific reason why reputation boosts are not included during boost events? I think this is what someone was getting at in their prior posts. Given the increased value that reputation tokens have now, a 25% boost running for an entire weekend would probably be appreciated by all players and especially EGO rating 5000 players who really don't get much from the boost events otherwise.

I realize that Defiance is still a relatively young game compared to Rift and that is why celebration events have been relatively unimaginative with nothing to show for them but boosts, but it is 1 year now and you can't pull things out of a cache of special celebration items and events when the time comes until you actually start making and implementing them. It's probably too late now but making a special temporary vendor with special weapons and/or shields like the Extra Life vendor would have been a nice way to celebrate the anniversary. That would have been a nice start to building a cache of content you can pull out for special events. Oh well.

April 2 marks an important day in the Defiance universe: it’s our birthday! 365 days ago today, Trion Worlds opened the Defiance servers to ark hunters on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. To celebrate, we’re adding a 24-hour global boost to XP gain, skill gain, and loot drop rate! However, we’re aware that Defiance’s anniversary lands on a Wednesday when most ark hunters are not going to be able to celebrate with us. Our solution? A second global boost all this weekend!
Defiance Anniversary Boosts to XP Gain, Skill Gain, and Loot Drop Rate
Start: Wednesday, April 2 at 12:00 PM Pacific
End: Thursday, April 3 at 12:00 PM Pacific
Start: Friday, April 4 at 12:00 PM Pacific
End: Monday, April 7 at 12:00 PM Pacific
We sincerely thank you for being part of the Defiance community. To mark the game’s first year, Creative Lead Trick Dempsey will be posting a State of the Game article covering the year in review and how Defiance is growing in its second year.

So... should have been a few hours ago, right?

Looked into this when requesting the anniversary boosts, we actually don't have global reputation boosts coded for the server. Is it something we can consider working on in the future? I'd like to say yes.C'mon man...You honestly want us to believe that it's too difficult a task for the masters of copy\paste to not be able to copy\paste code from existing global boosts to ones that haven't got it?

I mean, seriously. Every DLC to date was copy/pasted from some other element in game. Boosts just a bit more difficult?

Checked in with the team on this, as it turns out it's a simple time zone issue: we set the wrong time zone for those platforms. As a result, the boosts will be starting in about 60 minutes (5:00 PM Pacific) for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 . We've made sure they'll continue for a full 24 hours and sorry we didn't preempt this error.

We'll be fixing our script's time zone setting so this won't happen with the weekend's boost timing.

why not have us deal with the Escaped WarMaster(s), for the event, with guarantee awesome loots, Must be quite a few out there running around, seen a few escaped myself.

As to how to keep the WM contained, from actually really escaping and running amok through out the Zones , leave that to the Dev-team, maybe caught and contained behind the fences on one of the farms ???

Random drops could be Outfits as well , yes no, maybe ???? they been running around for a while, they may even had picked up, and could possibly drop a Challenger ???

What I want to know is that if it has been a full year wasn't Trion under contract upon buying the season pass to deliver 5 DLC packs before the end of the first year and if that is true then what are they doing about it? Please don't give us some lame booster and I'm talking about what is Trion going to do to compensate the season pass holders, I know what would be nice. Give each Season Pass Holder 1 Legendary lockbox from the market place. Yes full weapon and synergy related mod kit. I know DLC 5 was announced to be released in April but it is April 2nd and as Scapes has said they are officially 1 year old. So?

I don't recall anything about them being under contract to get them out in the first year, but both the last director of global communications and previous EP's plus the CEO said that they would be out within the first year of the game. Today is the first year of the game, so it's clear that they didn't hit that mark. They said they're aiming to get the test server out this week.

It's not exactly an argument. I was merely asking if there was any truth to it and if we would get compensated for it. I believe the reason SOE wouldn't refund my money for the season pass and i had submitted 3 tickets was because Trion had a full year to provide the DLC content which even you can agree that some of the content they have provided shouldn't be considered DLC content at all.

I've worked shifts that were 24 hours long, and worked 505 hours in a month once.

But I think 12 hours is the most I've ever spent playing a video game. Any more then that and my eyeballs fall out, forcing me to walk around holding them with my fingers, and pointing them at things.

At first Congratulations Defiance !
Second: Everytime you activated the 25% Lootboost, the phase with the highest player popularity starts to lag like hell, especially at Incursions.
Why don't you change that one in 25% Quality Lootboost instead of 25% quantity Lootboost? This wouldn't cause server lags.

Yesterday i hit my limit, i turned of my PS3 and turned on my PS4.
I`ve been enduring "discos" after "discos" without complaining, enduring, enduring, but the last "dlc" that gives us no purpose no real way to gain anything and the next "dlc" that is becoming a real pay to win is the limit to me.
I´ll keep on playing because for a few minutes a day the game can still be fun but that`s it.
There is no real incentive to keep the vets from leaving the game.
If after this season is going to be a next season i can only promisse that i`ll not buy a season pass anymore neither i`ll buy another dlc that brings nothing new to the game and that the non paying players get the same as the fools who payed for exclusive content, because that`s what it means by buying a season pass or a dlc, except in this game.

I'm right there with you and feel your pain. The ps3 disconnects are still pretty unbrearable. It seems after the first dlc is when it started for me. I think they should give us Vets of the game a Cerberus. That would keep me in the game a bit longer. It would also be a way to honour us Defiant Few who are still left from launch day and who stuck around through it all. As for the season pass, I will never buy another from Trion, and this whole fiasco will even make me thing twice before buying from anyone else.

I'd like to stress out... like really stress out... that hopefully this kind of issue will have you guys totally reconsider the Season Pass model.

I think I speak for everyone when I say we do not care about having x or y number of DLCs a year, we do not care about a year-long timeline. All we want are thoroughly-tested DLCs that include quality content and take into consideration players' feedback. Making vain promises and virtual deadlines doesn't work for your team and doesn't work for us either. The "payoff of sticking to the timeline" amounts to zero, quality-wise. We'll definitely pay for quality over quantity. A couple of DLCs for season 2 with massive content over gameplay changes is what we need. And you wouldn't even need a discount offer to sell them. Please do not repeat the Season Pass fiasco.

Now it's been a year, so happy birthday Defiance! Alas, judging by some posts on this thread, it's sad to see how some of the biggest supporters of the game, die-hard Defiance players, are all on the edge now.

The one year anniversary is as original as the DLC's up to now, and from what I've read including DLC 5. A free to play game RIFT gets more.

As a DLC purchase mug, I would have thought that something special would have gone to the season pass owners. This boost is really a non event as stated earlier in the thread a far more appropriate celebration would have been reputation or equipment boxes from the various dlc factions.... something somewhat special instead of this constant regurgitation of unimaginative idea's. :mad:

Kindof a piss poor excuse isn't it, after all it's not like you people didn't have a full year, 365 freaking days to plan a little something that actually said "we care about the game and the people playing it", didn't have to be anything big just something other than boosts something unique.

Every other game works fantastic on the ps3. No Offence I don't feel like giving Bill Gates more money and a tighter grip on everything. He's got Windows and computers for a monopoly, I be hornswaggled if he gets anymore for the gaming market.

Still it would be me buying a product I don't respect or believe in. I grew up being an Atari 2600 player, then a Nintendo supporter, I never bought a Sega product until the Dreamcast came out(which I still proudly own, and works), Then I became a Playstation supporter. If Playstation ever goes belly up, I'll buy whatever system replaces it, So long as its not owned by Xbox, Bill Gates, or Windows.

First of all, as funny as it is on South Park, you do realize Bill Gates has nothing to do with microsoft anymore right? I mean the man runs charities in 3rd world countries!
Second, and much more importantly, I know everyone is feeling negative and a more thought out anniversary was prefered but come on. With the clearly small team they have working on the game its amazing they even get buggy patches released. I doubt they even had the people to do anything for the anniversary without completely halting progress on DLC5. Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking forward to it in the slightest, but they clearly are determined to get it out asap.
Happy B day Defiance!!!
P.s. Scapes, you got my respect. You seem to be very patient and cool headed, just the qualities your gonna need to deal with this lot!

I don't know how many people will agree with my opinion, and at the end of the day it's just my opinion, but if it's noted elsewhere in the forum that dev's have things on their schedules etc, then a one year anniversary should have been a priority one. To say the bmg calculation bugs are not being address because of DLC 5 means priority in this game are akin to spaghetti. To move day one bugs and errors further down the list than future planned DLC's is not acceptable in most environments and shouldn't be acceptable here.

Map expansion has been a number one priority for me and I believe a number of long term plays for a long, long time. I hear that Trion and their respective Defiance team members are listening, but I believe they are just hearing white noise or blah blah blah until they hear I would like another arena, maybe they don't understand sarcasm.

This anniversary and DLC is to me another fine example they are very selective in their hearing, abilities and direction. Maybe should take a leaf from the Army and provide some cross training and swap out some dev's and artists etc to your other projects and inject some fresh blood and perspective here, because your current formula equals FAIL. And the blunt approach with direct language should not, cannot be spun any other way, this is the way I mean it, and it's in context, and constructive.

I don't really think that as a company Trion should ever have felt obligated to do anything special for their anniversary. For F*** Sake they didn't even feel obligated to stick to the time frame specified by the purchase of a season pass!! I believe it stated that WITHIN the first year, FIVE dlc's would be released... Happy anniversary *ssholes! your year is up and I only count four dlcs released... now if you would kindly refund the amount of my season pass I would be happy...

Played during beta, pre ordered the game and season pass, I just wanted something that in some way made me feel like I'd received some value for money.

Indeed... something other than a last minute "here's another vanilla loot/XP/skill boost" event would've been a nice gesture.

Would've liked the drop rate of legendarys raised a bit. Or dbl Rep points. Or scrip cost on keys removed. Anything but more lag boost, I've broken down enough whites and greens to rebuild S.F. with. I thought they wanted people to play the game not stop and break things down or run to a vender every 15 minutes.

Sometimes I think they think the electrons that make oj weapons are more expensive than the ones used to make white or green weapons.
