Ark hunters,

Season 2 of Defiance is well underway and we’re thrilled to see the resurgence of fan events! What is a fan event, you ask? To break it down to its most basic definition, they’re events driven by community members like you. They can and have varied widely, taking the form of contests, PvP competitions, races, character build challenges, and lots more.

We’d like to begin supporting these events to celebrate and encourage more of them. This will take the form of publicly promoting events on our official channels and granting in-game rewards to the event organizer to be distributed to their event’s winners. Since this is a pilot program, we’ll start out gradually with small prizes and players and clans who have held successful events in the past. After we’ve helped support and promote a few established events, the program will grow broader and take on new hosts while keeping a close watch that they’re being held responsibly and fairly.

Our goal is to scale this program up to include all manner of fan project authors including fansite operators, fan artists, YouTubers, Twitch livestreamers, guide writers... the list goes on! We want to make sure we’re keeping track of all Defiance fan projects, big and small. Even if we can’t support a project with in-game prizes, we’re still very interested to hear about it and potentially promote it on the Defiance website and social media channels.

Tell us what you’re working on and what you’d like to do!

Main mission is the soul of the game.

Trion can not replace the main story of the game for the TV show. That's a mistake. There must be a mission in the game, and well made

Without main mission the game become very repetitive. I know it is an exaggerated comparison but everyone needs a purpose, as in life.

You can enjoy ark-falls, coop, competitive multiplayer and many other things the game offers. And you will probably do that most of the time.

But the main mission is the spine of a game.

One thing is playing ark falls knowing that the main mission is there. Another is playing ark falls because there is nothing more to do.

I hope my point of view is understandable. Without main mission Defiance lacks soul. Just see how important the storyline is in the TV Show. Imagine a TV show of defiance with just "competition"... would be crap.

This isn't a community based project but I don't know where else to ask, what I'm looking for is some detailed drawings of the tiny little scrapper bots that come from the Forges.
They look almost hand shaped so if anyone knows where I can get some of different angles I'd appreciate it.

I am in the starting phase (paper & pen) of designing an app that eases the use and integrates both Defiancedata and this forum. It will ofc be free, in app links to support DD will exist also in app (everything donated direct to DD) I am looking at the possibilities to sign in to glyph and keep being signed in since when you go from page to page (on WP) you get automatically logged out. The app will be available to WP, Android and IOS (also HTML5 for other OS users).

Release: Yet to be announced

Any help, programming coding etc will be appreciated. Tips ideas and requests are also welcome. This project is relatively difficult since we are just modifying the view and looks not exploiting the code of the sites. So everyone interested in helping out feel free to email me or PM on the forum

I really hope that this will be possible to complete!

How about this for an event sometime?

An official thread gets made for players to submit their own Lock Box Jack Pot Weapon. Kinda in the same way the Holiday Screen Shots Event's operate. And the Devs vote on 3 of their favorite ones that will be the next 3 Jack Pot Weapons to be released in those coming months. This would be cool during a dry spell of no Holiday Events for forum members can take part in.

I assume such a thing would have certain boundaries on what Players could submit, them boundaries being the same rules Devs follow when making a Jack Pot Weapon such as using standard synergies and bonus rolls within the limits and rules of the game. And of course 1 submission per poster.

Weapons by default would be OJ as Jack Pots are and Players would submit the weapons stats of Weapon type, Synergy, Nano-(if any), and Bonus Rolls. And most of all the Name they create for it.

It would be cool to see a few Player made weapons be introduced as Jack Pots into the game.
