Karl Von Bach has disappeared into Silicon Valley with his EGO-imbued followers (http://www.vonbachindustries.com/), but it’s not quite the paradise they promised. The valley is overrun with Grid and a strange cult, the Pilgrims of the Guiding Light, has taken hold in locations across the zone.

Questions abound: Who are these pilgrims, and what do they want? What challenges face the newly formed Defiant Few? Will history catch up with Doctor Eren Niden?

As these mysteries unravel, the populace of Silicon Valley calls out for assistance: The Grid is spreading its influence with invasions giving rise to special battles and conflict sites only ark hunters can clear! Do you have what it takes to face the trials of Silicon Valley when it opens next week on August 5?

I need to stay connected long enough on ps3 (lol I know right) to grind enough to finish my weapons before the game gets totally nerfed. Never not looked so forward to anything before.

Pout.

Is it September yet?

I'm sorry I've tried to be a supportive fan, but quite frankly until the server connection issue is resolved i don't care to see any new content. I can't stay logged in long enough to enjoy what has already been provided. Maybe once the game functions normally, like a fully released, sponsor supported, non-beta game should function then perhaps i'll be back but for now i am moving on else where. Hopefully, this doesn't damage my taste for the show =\

I get the frustration but the show really has nothing to do with the game. The official show stuff isn't even here on this forum, they have twitter and FB for that - and it's delicious. So don't get mad at the show if you are mad at the game and the other way round.

I do agree 100% until the game is actually playable for those of us who bought it non on PC anything new is just "meh".

I've just finished the work on PTS to allow us to deploy further in advance and this was only completed in the last few days. See this thread (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?168862-Changes-Coming-to-PTS!!!) for details.

Silicon Valley looks fun, small but I was expecting that. Not sure what to think about it being instanced rather then it being apart of the map at large.
I hope PTS is able to catch any bugs within the few days they have to test... Also hope for a smooth release of this new content, but knowing the Trion track record on patch releases I won't hold my breath.

All in all I'm glad to see Defiance finally get a new land(mini)mass/(mini) expansion. Will probably be spending most of the time in Silicon Valley up until Sept. 9th which is when I'll be taking a long break from the world of Defiance.

Considering I bought 2 DLCs on Monday.. and after logging out 75% of my inventory is gone...
I prob won't buy anything from Trion till this is fixed.
I have 141 inventory slots to fill.. i keep at least 30 - 40 open.
Blues and up on weapons.. blue only on mods.. gone.
would love to buy the map expansion.. but have already spent a lot of flow on this game.
Wasn't till only recent.. I experienced "tech support" to rectify errors.
most all were easily brushed off... but this.. I am left salty and sour.

Deunan

...would love to buy the map expansion...It's free.

Regarding your lost inventory, file a support ticket then log on to live chat support and ask for escalation. When 2.0 went live a lot of us experienced inventory loss and had our lost items restored. I don't know if they will do the same for you as an isolated incident but it can't hurt to ask.

It's alright. All I'll say, based on the livestream, is that it's a better San Francisco. Yeah, the grass makes it look better. Can't wait for it to hit the regular servers. Also looking forward to that new Defiant Few outfit.

According to PTS users the new land mass "Silicon Valley" is actually separately instanced from the rest of the map. Separate zone chat, can't see what's going on in the SF and paradise maps. Sorry but that is hugely disappointing, and lousy way to deploy more new unfinished content. Rush it out, again.

They covered this in the livestream. It was for some optimization reasons I think.

Given that there already was a Silicon Valley map which (although unfinished) was in the main map, i doubt the real reasons are "optimisation". It's more likely "rushing things" or just "laziness"...

Optimisation is the lack of rain effect, which is understandable. But having it in a separate map when we already know that the main map would be able to handle it? That's not understandable.
Except, of course, for the 2 reasons i stated.

Really looking forward to trying the new area, especially after playing the Gulanee arkfall. My only real wish is that zone chat can get merged with the larger map.

You'll have to forgive me, i'm new to the game and the forum, but it's my opinion that this new encryption patch will help everyone and even bring alittle skill back to the game. To me it ain't fun having an uber weapon that can kill most things that would normally take 5-10 people to do. Balance is a good thing, besides there isn't a game out there without some sort of cap in place - It could be alot worse.

Trion you really want to impress me, upgrade/fix your damn server. Getting punted every 2minor/major arkfalls frustrates the hell out of me..

08-05-2014, 03:56 PM
I completely agree with you. I have been playing for 2 months now and my EGO is up to 4,250. I reviewed the changes being made and from my perspective I see more benefits than drawbacks. I can see where players that have been here awhile may take offence. I personally have used the lockboxes on a consistent basis, I sell my loot and buy keys at the lock box, I spend my keys on tier 3 lockbox as I do not have DLC as of yet and have no access to tier 4 (I have been playing the game as a free player). I have found that most of my Orange Gear has come from the lock box and also most of my Ark forge as the lockbox sometimes give 20-40-50 Ark forge. With the changes being made I can see players resorting to this tactic more in pursuit of Orange items. Overall, this is one of the most enjoyable games I have ever played, the amount of content you have access to for FREE is massive. I see paying for the additional content, the purchase prices as more the fair. Yes, there have been glitches that can at times be very frustrating but I think for the size of this game it is too be expected. Continuing updates and providing constant info is awesome. Keep up the great work.

Yes it sucks when you can't play the game but it will be back soon. In the meantime here's how not to be seen when cloaked.

BC001
08-05-2014, 06:51 PM
That is the good thing about server based games, the characters are safer than on a local machine. The down side is of course the fact that the servers have to be up to play the game (and now I can compare the timestamp on this comment to the clock time and find out what the time zone is so posts referring to when things are expected to happen in relative time make some sense...).

Edit: Apparently the forum is set to GMT...

Currently downloading the expansion/patch and, after reading up on both. Am very optimistic. I expect that there will be issues, which has been normal for as long as I've gamed online (1990 to date), so am not all that worried about them...am looking forward to this. :)

so they said you can rank up because of their new patch, NOT!!!!!!!! this is the biggest lie. you see what people will buy with a smile and a pocket full of crap to sell you.

we love the million dollar package of shear crapola as well. SUPER NOT HAPPENING.

Most of the clan and new users could not save scrip if there life depended on it, they spend every thing and so do most other users

so they will never see a million scrip to get the box

you reduce the key drops and the ark forge drop and expect no one to notice..

Enemies below the ground on ark break arkfalls, people can still cheat in shadow wars.

and what a long mission, you bent the truth on that one as well by saying new missions available. really .

were is Von Bach!!!

I know I am over 50% deaf the sub titles did not say anything about that joker

Here is the xp issue your own patch notes, then support takes back what was stated and retranslates it any way you read this, it does not say you have to do the pursuits......

Don't waste your time with attempting to rank up that broken character if you are rank stuck you are stuck in spite of what they say

You like the new chat box default dark and dark and darker not readable

UNDER CHAT!!!

Clean install all patches removed we had numerous uses try the clean install only one person came up with a default in the "Colorblind Scheme: default"

love the menu operation select the lower options to change the option above FanF*$%ingtasic

This was the variety of messages from our clan and random uses

Colorblind scheme: 1053676274_STRING_MISSING
Colorblind scheme: -1_STRING_MISSING

then under game play you put the last field out of the screen limit scroll range so this limit can not be toggled.

all the clans need to come together and bring this to an end and stop buying bits period till this ends.

Cut the money off they will take you serious.

we don't work for you Trion why do we have to farm for days for high prices. well we are not

We have told our clan members to stop spending in the store at once.

Your lock boxes truly suck in most cases and you call them random. Your Epic Mod Hoards deliver the same things over and over again no mater were you go.

Remove the ark forge all together. WE all know you motive behind the locking of ranges.

We asked you for a clan bank for the clans so weapons could be stored for the clan so we could provide for new users.

I have 300+ storage I nor any other clan leader should bare the load for the clan.

1. Chat is stuck on color blind filter.
2. Sometimes as I drive i notice the ground turning black.
3. I can still lock on to people that are using cloak.
4. Some of the conflict sites in silicon valley hover over the ground.

not paying to level up guns

while you wont fix the issues

Played a couple hours. Was fun.

I like the new area, a lot. Bit on the small side, it seems, but fun. Episode mission was decent. Voice acting was fair; not sure where the 'hate' came from for that...contracts change, folks get tagged for other projects, it happens.

Lag is still a beast, at times. In the upper areas (not Silicon Valley) the lag seemed to recover fairly quickly when it occurred. In SV, ended up dumping off and reentering game to clear it. Likely had to do with how many were in the area.

Was finally able to reset the season episodes, though, from what I could see; some still cannot do so.

Chat seemed to default to a tab where I could not see what anyone was saying, changed the tab and could see folks yakking. Not sure if everyone would notice that. Also, I see Tab 3 and 4...what happened to 1 and 2? :D

I realize that I'm a F2P, and only been around a couple months. That said, I think you may wish to revisit your arkforge/key awards for various events, and such. Seems more than a bit tweeked or, nerfed...felt like a waste of time to do them.

It'll be nice if some side missions get added to SV, though there is definitely a bunch of random encounters to do to keep you occupied.

Overall, I'll have to give it a 'decent'. :)

We had reported the chat issues on PTS.

Simple change makes it work, but you have to know that you need to change it and that it resets any chat tabs you already had.

Anyone take a look at this or notice it first time logging in? (I haven't had time to log back in to make sure it stays, but since no one has said anything, I'm guess it does hold.) Would be confusing on first login.

First time I logged in I had this also. My keybindings on my mouse (two side buttons one grenade and roll) were still set.
