This can be a constructive thread. It can also be hilarious. I want to know why I should log on and play Defiance. I am 5300ish EGO. I have some pursuits to finish obviously. I probably won't torture myself with racing gold or all the PVP bull, but after that what am I chasing? What were you guys chasing before you hated the game? I am so bored with Sillycon Valley (thanks creep) and they killed everything else pretty much. It's booooorrriiinngg. So please, someone tell me Why I Should Play This Game.

Dude, I really want to know. What am I chasing? Is it a gun? Cool that would be okay but why? Why do I even want this gun anymore?

Actually someone tell me why they used to chase guns. Then explain why it the changes made it pointless. I'm assuming it's because rewards suck now? I want to know if I'm bored because of the way the game is now, or if I always would have gotten bored at 5300.

Welp I can't speak for you but in my case I was chasing guns that I could make damn good and give to my friends. I've got my dream load out more or less. My grind was for gifts to brighten someone's day. The nerfs to rewards wrecked that idea.

EDIT: Hell not even just my friends. I paid the major difference for someone so they could get a Wolfy. I donated loads of scrip to public events to be handed out as prizes. I'd pick up random noobs and buy em a car and give em some pocket change to get em started. Not anymore.

I still play because it's still fun for me.
Nothing lasts forever though and without writers and other key production staff it's only a matter of time until it just gets too boring to continue.

I'm not trying to be cynical bud, I just want to understand what I'm missing. I rely on you guys to give me the information about what's going on with this game. I'm a semi-casual player. I grind when I can. But, I just don't see what I'm chasing right now. Maybe I'm reaching that point that you OG's have reached already, I don't know.

Totally get it CP. It's not that deep though. I mean, I have pretty low standards, and for whatever reason I fall in the very small part of the bell curve that consists of people who still play after 3700+ hours. The last time I was really well and truly butthurt over this game was when they nerfed the firestorm and thundershock to absolute dust. That was when I learned the "it's their game and not mine" lesson. After that I just take it in stride and wait for the next game to come along.
I have played a few but they aren't as much fun as this one for me still so... I keep playing.
Pretty sure that's gonna change when the pre sequel comes out though.

All of a sudden my paycheck is cut, my friends start to leave, and I begin to wonder wtf I am doing here. I was having a good time, but all of a sudden I feel like it is being changed negatively.

Obviously if you've done everything and you're not enjoying the grind you should leave.

No point in extending the pain you're already going through. May be best to pack your bags and leave the forum to, it's one thing to read the views of guys who are frustrated with the game and it's issues but the haters just make the place unpleasant.

Right now my favorite thing to do is use a rock steady VBI AR that I have.

This thing has no recoil and I put a t5 falloff barrel and a tac scope on it.

I can kill anything I can see with pinpoint automatic fire.

That is fun for me at the moment.

However, I fully expect trion to ruin it now that I have said something publicly about it.

If you have to ask this question, then you are better of to something else. You play the game to enjoy it. Not for a reward ; not for new content ; not for new/old features. Although all these contribute , the "ultimate purpose" of gamming is fun. If you are not having any / or you have to ask what that is, it means you are not in the right place.

Not trying to drive you away. This is just a good reference for most people when it's time to switch.

You're grinding for the hope that eventually we will see the light at the end of the tunnel and see Defiance Nirvana. Right now, we are simply treading water.

The only reason to continue to log in and play is because the events are still fun to play. That's the only reason I am here, but the lag and DCs have pretty much killed that the last two weeks. Aside from that, soloing Arkfalls, Arkbreaks, Incursions, and SV Invasions gets old after a while. Heck, I can't even que for a PUG group in the Gunslinger Arenas to try to finish off those pursuits.

Truth be told:
They killed rewards as a means of playing the content
They killed the thrill of being able to take a much loved and fun gun and upgrading it as you progress in the game
They killed the excitement and challenge of playing the game solo and playing in a group thanks to Threat Level
They killed any reason to do the Warmaster by ensuring that winning is no longer the reason to play
They (along with SyFy) killed any hope of getting meaningful and interesting cross-over content (Hell, didn't both sides say that the cross-over content would be getting bigger and better in Season 2 - it's gotten decidedly worse to non-existant!)

Honestly, Bentu is probably right. A year ago, I was encouraging people left and right to try the game out. Now, I can't find one even average reason that someone should play Defiance. I guess I could say that it's free is a reason, but then I realize how poorly they are monetizing it and find that even free is somehow a rip off on this game.

So here's my legit answer, sort of:

The last thing that got me "excited" in Defiance was when I went back and got my hands on the El Diablo (mission SMG). I left my inventory full on my noob and claimed it as Tempest so it was already 5600 EGO when I got it. Then I was able to arkforge it up to OJ, add OJ mods and it's STILL my fave fire SMG - I have a Boomslang too but I just love having this "special" gun.

After the El Diablo was decked out, I would inspect all those greens and blues I picked up for weird rolls and synergies and either pass them to people or arkforge them up to OJ. Once we knew the grand nerf was coming I hurried up and got 3 blues up to purple at which point I was out of arkforge.

But now we can't do that anymore. And now I'm at 5900 EGO and my lower level toons are too easily killed (I like being OP). So I'm at the "now what" point too.

I'm taking a break from Defiance, not giving away my personals but have handed out my mediocre OJ's. I still have an odd assortment that I'll just sit on. I HOPE they fix this game but really, after this summer, my faith in the Team is pretty much gone.

18 days.

18 days.



Really. Was hoping to "ride off into the sunset" with some enjoyment, but I don't know if I can even stand it for 18 days more. My goal is/was just to get another 40 or so more ego points so that I could get the rest of my good gear over the soft cap of 5500.

I've got the arkforge to do it, but the grind is just too much. Everything left is miserable - pvp, gold time trials, sharpshooting savior, clearing umpteen hellbug minors just to get a Control Grid to spawn, soloing 300 99ers for 1/25 progress towards 5 ego points, etc, etc, not to mention the ongoing "stellar" game stability.

So, I guess, one answer is that there is no answer. I want to find a reason, but I can't. So it's down to maybe doing the daily expert and collecting "free" patron pass arkforge for no real purpose whatsoever. Not the way I wanted to leave, but it is what is (and whats its always been really).

Well actually...the last thing I did in Defiance is spent the last 2 weeks getting myself to 5900. My last pursuit was the SV incursions. I still have 2 more of the newest pursuits left but I don't need them so, yeah.

So much for that sunset. I may do expert coops to get cores for my friend if I can stand an hour of play each day...we will see. Last night I just couldn't do it.

You should play because the devs are going to be making changes to the game now that they (once again) realize that the current direction they've put game on in terms of development decisions is unsustainable. An additional developer has added his voice to the community discussion on several matters.

His name is Travis McGeathy and his forum name is Rashere. In this post (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?172550-Introduction-and-an-Update) Rashere has announced some changes for the better from the perspective of those players that have been unhappy with many of the recent development decisions that were implemented.

1. Arkforge cost for upgrading the EGO rating for gear is going to be reduced.

2. The rate of Epic and below rarity gear dropping with encryption on them is going to be reduced or removed all together.

3. They are temporarily removing the less desirable gear from lock box loot pools until they can figure out a balanced way in which to make them more desireable. This is will be a work in progress as what constitutes less desirable and what magnitude of that lesser desire should be used is a matter subject to reasonable debate. While there is universal agreement that some weapons are simply awful (Birdshot Pump and FRC Magnum for example), opinions vary on other weapons. You can join in that discussion in this post (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?172562-Undesireable-Lockbox-Weapons).

4. They will be adding lock boxes that drop only weapons and only shields. Anyone who has been through a long dry spell for a decent shield can appreciate how valuable this change can be.

Copperpot, I am EGO 5686 and most of the time the game is boring as well. Why do I continue to get on? For me, it's the people. I love my clan. We have a hoot playing together and we get along really well. There are many nights when I wish I owned some Depends (iOMG, was that my outside voice?). On any given night we can have between 15-20 people on at the same time. Sometimes it gets crazy in clan chat but that makes it even more interesting.

I do not believe in stealing people from their clans; therefore, this comment is not one to suggest you join mine. I very much respect the leaders of the clan that you are presently in and would never step on their toes. My suggestion to you is to aggressively recruit new blood. Train them well and have a ton of fun while doing it.

Our clan is getting anywhere between 10-15 new people a day. We have been growing like crazy since F2P and we are busy as heck. showing the newbs the ropes. Someone calls out for help in clan chat and most of the time (not always) he/she is surrounded by a sea of blue. I have met a lot of really nice people since F2P.

Because of the longer more fulfilling chase?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/c8/Thechaseposter.jpg/220px-Thechaseposter.jpg


What is it we chase after though? Is it the guns? I have 2 guns I use now, one is a wolfhound single crit (cause RNG hates me) and the other is a vot techmag pulsar (accuracy X3 rolls). I could try to keep going for a double crit wolfhound, but then I have to deal with the RNG, and after a year or so its not going to drop one for me no matter how many sieges, incursions, war masters or all that junk I do.

Rewards getting nerfed, lock boxes being nerfed, weapons having encryption placed on them. So really guns is out of the question in that regards. What about scrip or salvage? Nope, got plenty of that and don't plan to spend it on that 1 million scrip box.

DLC ? Don't own any and never will purchase any. The free updates were enough for me, so I don't get to use swords or some fancy homing smg gun, not a big deal.

End game? Used to be war master but that got nerfed into oblivion. I have also completed most of my pursuits save for dueling and some of the clan/social ones. Working on Silicon valley ones at the moment, what a pain in the butt those are.

What am I chasing? My tail I guess, just biding time till I can find another game that interests me.

Pulsars already have near pinpoint accuracy, ie; very small reticles. I think you would be better off with other rolls.

Thanks Treas. There are plenty of active members in Outsiderz. It's not that. I just wanted to know, I think, why different people are still playing and if that's changed since they hit max EGO (or close). I've been playing quite a bit today and even had some fun in shadow war. It's not so much that I'm burnt out, it's more a curiosity of how to motivate myself to continue to play. I rely on everyone here to explain the game to me. Simple as that.

EDIT: I also believe there are other people on here who wonder the same things I do. And thanks to everyone replying. I'm reading every post and it is definitely helping me understand why we keep playing.

You shouldn't. This game sucks and horridly so.

You shouldn't. This game sucks and horridly so.

In fact I'm amazed you got to such a high level. Either you must very much hate yourself or not have much of a social life. I've played the game for less than a week and I already hate it which sucks because I like the show.

Haha, I hate myself and I don't have a social life lol. Wait that sounds sad. Frowny Face...

It`s really interesting that every time someone doesn`t like a game for various reasons, they call other people no lifers.

Don`t like the game? Cool, great for you, move along and don`t judge anyone.

I came back from a long hiatus around late April-early May, I was around 1500ish with very bad loadouts (This was after all the "patches" and "DLCs"). I was clanless and just ran around doing almost anything to level up my EGO except for races and PvP. Almost 3 months later of hustling, gun-chasing, event-running, and joining a good helpful clan I got to 5307 ego. I did the races earning a silver medal for the Area pursuits (Mount Tam pursuits and the like, not the races pursuits making you race for the near-impossible gold medal) and just about every other pursuit I could do within the realm of my skill and just dumb luck, now when I log on I just do a few incursions hoping to find some decent gun and earn a feeble amount of Arkforge, I only do the Chimera dailies if I'm in the mood and the Defiant Few just for kicks. Hell I used to do the Arkfalls hoping to entertain myself and find a weapon I have never used before, which I did every now and then, not to mention wreck the Volge seeing as in my earlier EGO levels they would rip me a new one. Saddest thing, aside from the crazy nerfs from Trion, hardly none of the higher EGO players from the clan I'm in plays except every now and then. The lower EGO clan-mates play a bit less too, I'm in the same rut you're in Copperpot only I just decide whether to play or not based on how I feel and if I want to bother with any more of Trion's idiocy and lackluster server connection.

I played resident evil 6 online with a friend and that was so much fun i got resident evil 5 from a friend to start playing next.

Because of the longer more fulfilling chase?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/c8/Thechaseposter.jpg/220px-Thechaseposter.jpg


What is it we chase after though? Is it the guns? I have 2 guns I use now, one is a wolfhound single crit (cause RNG hates me) and the other is a vot techmag pulsar (accuracy X3 rolls). I could try to keep going for a double crit wolfhound, but then I have to deal with the RNG, and after a year or so its not going to drop one for me no matter how many sieges, incursions, war masters or all that junk I do.

Rewards getting nerfed, lock boxes being nerfed, weapons having encryption placed on them. So really guns is out of the question in that regards. What about scrip or salvage? Nope, got plenty of that and don't plan to spend it on that 1 million scrip box.

DLC ? Don't own any and never will purchase any. The free updates were enough for me, so I don't get to use swords or some fancy homing smg gun, not a big deal.

End game? Used to be war master but that got nerfed into oblivion. I have also completed most of my pursuits save for dueling and some of the clan/social ones. Working on Silicon valley ones at the moment, what a pain in the butt those are.

What am I chasing? My tail I guess, just biding time till I can find another game that interests me.

rng hates me too man really hates me

For me typically in games like this it's level cap and good gear. Trying to get all the rare stuff then when I get both I either start a new character or compete on leaderboards or do pvp.
