We're excited to announce that Defiance Free-to-Play is coming to PlayStation 3 next week! Starting August 12, veteran ark hunters on PlayStation 3 will be granted 1,000 arkforge, 30 days of Paradise Patron status, and retain their increased number of loadouts, character slots, inventory slots, and keycode storage capacity (please note that some these will need to be reclaimed from the Claim Items pane). New recruits will be able to download Defiance from the PlayStation Network (PSN) for free once their store updates.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo a 3rd of my clan can't even log on tonight - it just crashes. One said she's been submitting tickets since june with no response. It's ps3 so no computer personal config issues.

Sigh it's over isn't it. Still love the show, the game makes me drink.

Your friend has likely not linked their PS3 account to their Trion Worlds account. We can't submit a direct response without an email attached, so if they submit tickets from the PS3, we can't get a response out to them. We can fix their issues, but we can't really send them notifications.

Tell them to use the support site online or connect their PS3 account to their Trion Worlds account so that we can get a response out to them. Alternatively, have her use Live Chat, because Live Chat is awesome.

It will be interesting to see how many of my friend who were ready to start playing on July 15th are still willing to start on the 12th.

They have been lurking the forums and dont seem excited about the game anymore..

I am ready for my Forge though! Thanks for the update.

Excuse me but my accounts are linked and I submitted the ticket via trion's site and plus I've posted the issue on the PS3 bugs page here on the forums and I can count the responses I have gotten for the support team with my hands closed.

Let me get this right you delayed the f2p to improve the game/server, but now its in a total mess on ps3 right now it's in a worst state it's been in since the new patch..

Incursions sieges bugged with 999999 scores, major ark falls bugged due to being in the same area as a ark break, constantly being dc'd entering stuff, I could go on and on, on

But I guess it's time to cash in on a sinking ship

I still think it was delayed because someone wanted both consoles to go F2P at the same time (maybe Microsoft?).

PS3 had a set date but that was changed to "mid-July" when they announced it for Xbox. We eventually got our set date of July 15th back but that didnt happen.

Well I sure hope they get voice chat back online for us by then. And fix the rest of us still having text chat stuck on colorblind. And stability and balance and about a thousand bugs and glitches and everything else that will not impress a newcomer to stay and check out the bit store.

But then again, I'm just here for the arkforge.

NO let's go free to play with bonuses not chat zone or clan , ghost enemy's, crit outs, no text chat, lag, and glitch out everything that will get people to come to the game right.

I have a question if we have to claim back load out slots and character slots from claims items and we have multiple characters will we get the load out slots back for all of them or just the one we claim them back on because you have to buy the load out slots for individual characters I for one do not wish to have to buy the load out slots again for the rest of my characters and will this apply to Xbox 360 when it go's F2P?

I am welcoming the F2P on Ps3.. even though I paid for my copy. Over a year ago.
More people to play the game with.

The game has been extremely laggy this weekend on PS3. I do hope that's solved before activating F2P, and that the F2P newcomers dont get the game to lag and DC even more than it currently is.

I can hardly wait for the influx of new people that we cannot communicate with because voice chat is still broken and text chat seems to only be working for some people. I know that this issue is being investigated, but it is terribly frustrating.

All these things point the way to stability.

pls dnt do F2P by that state of the Game we have now, that will crash everything ... oki many gamers left cos of no investment on PS3 ...

Scapes u doing great job, but the investment ppl they loose totally it seems, cos what happens on PS3 for the last 5days is really sad, seems nobody has time, and no eta for any fix or even investigation on the issues on PS3 ...

So, the plan was to hold back PS3 F2P until the servers were more stable.

F2P is finally dated for PS3 . . . with the days between announcement and implementation being some of the worst for PS3 stability in ages.

(Actually, it's horrible on the mainland. I've almost never been booted from Silicon Valley on PS3. Then again, that is made up for by all the emergencies spawning with enemies underground, stalled out Invasion events, Grid minor arkfalls that don't spawn at all despite their titles showing up in their supposed spawn radius, etc.).

Stable?!! There is still lag on ps3

eirich_liath
08-10-2014, 04:56 PM
It has been mentioned several times already. STABILITY is still a joke. I thought that's why it was delayed also.

Any more lag and discos will make the game impossible to play. Does The Company care?
Money? The game will be more of a laughing stock than it already is. F2P. Download. Crit out. Delete.

Really ought to reconsider the timing on this and worry about the STABILITY issues before anything else.
Else the chickens you've obviously already counted won't hatch.
Because grenades!

08-10-2014, 05:29 PM
Honestly, if the intention is to wait for true stability, it will never got F2P. Even if it becomes fully stable pre-F2P, F2P will tax the game enough that we're sure to see further stability issues. All they can do is say, "screw it," go ahead and make it F2P, give the paid-players their Arkforge and Patron Pass, then work in stability post-F2P-launch. At least then it's one stability mess, rather than one then another.

I played a bit last night.

And, I was amazed at what a ghost town it was!
Maybe my scrip wasn't good enough for ppl. I shouted out in zone that I was giving it away. Only 1 taker.

Really is sad. I loved the game this used to be!
Everyone on my friends list are playing other games.
Because grenades, and a slew of other reasons!

2 weeks ago, I had 30+ friends playing. 6-8 of those clan.
Last night, I had at its peak, 6 friends playing Defiance. 1 of those being clan. A shout in zone offering free scrip and weapons would have brought ppl to me in droves, a short time ago. The Company has finally succeeded in alienating nearly all that have brought this game this far along.

Stability, the main thing The Company should be devoting 100% of its time fixing, isn't "instantly profitable". So, is pushed back under the guise of "being constantly worked on".

Instead, they continue to push out more broken content and bad decisions that push ppl away. The loot drop, ark forge, and key code nerfs offer little in rewarding players for doing anything. The new "land mass" is boring as hell, not to mention how rough and unfinished it seems.

F2P will fail, with the game in the state it's in now.
