A. I pushed load out 5 to see a weapon in load out 4.......do not ask me how but that was the only way I could see weapon a of load out 4 (spec) was to look at weapon A of load out 5

B. look for "old school" title and daily rewards of all new stuff all popped on screen but no where to be found did not see title pop and has yet to be found ...

every thing was strange but it I did use the new load out Quicky and it did work and was kool.....then the server went down ....

Hope the guys get it straightened out without to many call out pizza's

Console players do not get the title, or patron's pass until the game goes free on console.

The only thing I didn't find favorable was that swapping a loadout in the menu also has that "interaction bar" that comes with using the "fast loadout swap" function. There's nothing faster about it... actually quite the opposite. In the grand scheme of things, I can live with it... but I'm not fond of it. :p

Or the 1000 arkforge. OK that's THREE things. I asked CM's for clarification today...anything else we don't get until July 15th? This is beyond confusing...

I think this is some of the stuff I got when I claimed my daily:

Would be awesome if Kiwi could provide clarification on what is inside them

Those only give one measly thing so they don't count.

DLC OWNER REWARDS
* Players will now receive an extra lockbox in their daily and weekly login rewards for *EVERY* DLC that they own.
* These lockboxes, named [DLC] Daily/Weekly Supplies so that you know what you're getting from which DLC, will contain 1 of 4 items.

* Daily Supplies:
- 1 Arkforge
- 1 Ark Keycodes
- 100 Scrip
- 100 Salvage
* Weekly Supplies:
- 5 Arkforge
- 5 Ark Keycodes
- 500 Scrip
- 500 Salvage

OK after reading this post, I'm still confused on EXACTLY what is being granted to Console players today.
Patch notes do not clarify the difference - it would be nice if they said PC <this> and Console <not this>

So here's the things we MIGHT be getting awarded on console - someone please copy/paste and say YES or NO:

30-Day Paradise Patron Pass - NO. PhantasieTrion clarified this yesterday.

Grant of 1000 Arkforge - NO? I could swear PhantasieTrion said patron pass was the only thing tied to F2P.

Please, please give us that dang 1000 arkforge today!


Both of these are tied to the Free-to-Play launch. However, they're tied to the console Free-to-Play launch for console players, which is on July 15th.

That is the standard daily we always had. Etaew. The new dlc ones give less stuff, see my above post.

{edit} Wow this is a first I think, I ninja'd myself with that! LOL

Something they could improve on is letting you know just where you are getting rewards from, like checking out of events, instead of random things appearing in your log and floating boxes and popups.

Erm, New guy here, Does the game normally fail after the patch? or are the NA console servers just down most of the time. Little curious, don't mean to sound like an ******, apologies.

Any MMOs will have problems on patch day, and Trion gives the impression of not doing enough testing. Even though they have a QA team, there seems to be so much trouble they find when they deploy it on a server with actual players. We all want them to open up the test server more often, but meh.

http://forums.defiance.com/forumdisplay.php?35-Defiance-Server-Status is where you will find out what is up with the servers, and yes they are down at the moment fixing some things.

^this, the old way was actually faster then the new fast swap. and now even the old way has a time penalty attached

It does allow you to continue monitoring the battle instead of being blind, but yes if you were quick you could open the full menu and press a number and be out again fairly quickly, it just wasn't pleasant.
