The location for 'Track the Drill' is not correctly spawning any format of 'drill' to either pickup or kill any enemies to continue the mission.

Yeah I can't get in either, also Cooper doesn't sound as cool or southern badass like he did

Add to the non-existent drill the never-ending loading screen at the end of the first mission that eventually results in a disconnect.

I was so amped for the episode mission. There is a crowd of ppl standing on the yellow circle marker on the map. I have no idea what we are supposed to do. Are we supposed to look for something? Is that a spot were 99ers come up for a fight?

We dunno what's supposed to happen. It refuses to progress so we can't.

I've finished the episode. 99ers pop up on those yellow spots. At least ,they are supposed to. I relogged and got lucky with one that was working and ended up chaining it along to the end.

I will also mention that the third mission may have a tendancy to bug as well. I got a non progression that I also had to relog (and fight fifty thousand 99ers again) to fix (No spoilers, but certain doors wern't triggering to open), So you aren't entirely out of the water yet if you get those spots working.

I believe its supposed to be the thing that digs up out of the ground, then the 99'ers pour out. Nolan says something about "They (the 99ers) will need to surface multiple times..."

So i think its a series of those things that tunnel up, but its not.

They could assign a few people to the Alpha/PTR server, and make it invite only in order to test this stuff. Then again, maybe there's not enough interested people to discover these things. Internal Q/A doesn't seem to be catching everything.

Well, epic fail, guys. Content doesn't work and you won't take it down or turn it off. Your customer base is confused and this does not look good. Whatever your internal QA process consists of needs to be revamped and/or you need an exact replica of the live server.

is that really your answer? comic relief on the first bug or two lightens the mood and lets us know your fixing things. comic relief after 14 months of not being able to release one patch, hotfix, dlc, or additional content without problems just means you really dont give a flying ****.

These guys have been busting tale for along time "DEVS"

I do not see a lot of games with this much freedom among players anywhere....

being ugly is not proper protocol.....

if you have constructive criticism ok.... but be careful what you ask for.

if you would not talk that way to a judge or officer that just pulled you over ....I would not to the DEV

Being nice cost you nothing

happy trails

PhantasieTrion answered your question here (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?163824-Patch-2.008-(hotfix)-Addressing-Episode-Mission-Issues).

In short: This fix didn't make it into 2.008, but it will in the next one.

Good Grief.
So, It didn't progress.
Shall we drag them out back and beat the sh!t out of them now? Come on.
You know what? This is like every other week we get new content of some sort leading up to the Show's Season Two premier and everyone goes ballistic when there is a bug.
I am not the biggest fan of Q&A, that is where these issues come from - but geez ..... let's not form an angry mob just yet, huh?
They will fix it.
I don't claim to be very patient, I want it good right after I download it but the firefight on the docks with the Biomen was pretty cool and I want to lase and blaze on "fifty thousand" 99ers.
I am willing to wait for it to be fixed, as long as it is right.

The fix is up on the PTR. Glyph > go to region > select PTR > hit play.

It played through OK when I did it. How it will be with a ton of people doing it repeatedly, no idea.

I agree with Crixda we dont need to riot. I also have to say that even though i have been here since launch and have gotten used to the TRION system of releasing something bugged and fixing it later , they have gotten faster with the fixes. That being said i am still getting bored and annoyed with the overall frequency with which this happens and can see why this will upset people and wonder how many of the F2P people will be ok with this.

Yep, the feeling is mutual... it's like a comedy of errors whenever new content is released.

Perhaps next time there is a live stream, the community should submit "bugged questions," non sequiturs that leave them wondering what the hell just happened.

The servers just went down to apply a hotfix, so hopefully this is what their fixing. I'm stuck there too.

On a side note, the emergency that keeps popping up there is making the time to wait for it to launch go by much faster IMHO.

And yes, I agree with Crix.. no reason to start a flash mob with the dev's on spits.. yet.

There is a scene in Rocky III where Clubber Lang (played by the robo-bad@$$ Mr. T) keeps on bashing the seemingly caved-in side of the grape-like head of Rocky Balboa (played by Sylvester Stallone) and Rocky keeps getting up and saying "is that all you got? You ain't so bad. You ain't so bad. You ain't nothin'". Clubber is bringing these right hands from downtown and just busting Rocky all over the place until he gets tired and then ....well, you know. "Rocky! Rocky! Rocky!" The croud gets behind him, he points at Clubber and the crowd goes "YOU!" And Rocky waves his finger back and forth in a "No, No, No!" And then gives him then Big Boot, drops the Big Leg and gets ready to body slam him. All the while, the crowd is flipping out.
This is "Hulking Up". So after the body-slam the ref counts and then Rocky screams for Miss Elizabeth and then all the little Hulksters wonder what in the hell Crix is talking about. Right?
Geez, Arkhunters! Aren't you trainin', saying your prayers and takin' your vitamins anymore?
Well, I HAVE TOO - because I am the one at the gate of Trion Worlds headquaters who has to protect them from you knuckleheads when you come down the road with torches alight and hoes and staves held high chanting " I wanna kill, every-one! I wanna kill, every-one! I wanna kill, every-one!"
Come on.
The patches don't work?
Didn't I tell you that they would jump right on it?
They aren't going to serve us brontosaurus dookie-burgers and MAKE us eat them.
(The condiments keep running out.)
Give them a chance, Hulksters!
