Hi folks, can you submit recent and relevant questions this week for the Community Q&A that Kiwibird features.

I promise I'm working on getting the older list looked at, but in the weekly features we tend to get only a few answered. So let's make them count.

I got one! Me me me!! Is there anything new on the horizon for us? And I do mean new. Not reskins and all that. Something completely new to defiance for us to do. Clearly if my question makes the cut it will need some rewording so you or Kiwi chop it up however you wish long as it retains its core :D

What happened to the large Grid enemy with the six legs? I expected to see it when we got Silicon Valley, but it's still not in game, did it get cut?

What is going on with the server instability across all platforms? On PS3 NA, it is worse after the stability patch 2.06.
Lots of hard locks, lag, and disconnects.

Can they make the Grid control minor arkfall stay on the map even if a major or miner conversion spawns? Tired of trying to get that pursuit done and the thing just disappears on me.

1. Will you ever move the outfits attached to lock boxes to the store for stand alone purchase?

2. Are there still plans give us more versatility in the Salvage matrix (naming weapons, etc..)?

3. Have you considered my suggestion in revamping the Suggestions part of the forums?

Any plans of patron pass improvements? For example, why not a lockbox in the weekly rewards? Rift's just had a big boost for patrons, and even before that it put Defiance's benefits to shame.

If I may flying vehicles have already been addressed (forgive me for not providing a link) long ago as not probable due to a massive overhaul it would require due to draw distance and possibly a number of other factors. Not a programmer either so don't bite my head PFF if that's actually an easy fix. Just saying that's something that was listed.

Why are the devs trying to kill this game? Doesn't make since to nerf themselves out of a job.

I'm curious about this as well. That multi-legged creature seems to be the apex Grid enemy. Would be nice to see it at some point.

i asked befor and got no reply as to when thay would be seen. im going to make an egacated guess and say that we will fight it in a story mission at some poiont in time befor the release of season 3 of the TV show.

edit ::

another question from me.

will we ever get grid type wepons ? we have volge type weapons we have cold fire. we have 7th leadgon. and we have gunslinger and defiant few. will we ever see a grid weapon ?

Good lord, I hope this isn't from a native English speaker. Please tell me that's autocorrect punking here...

Few questions of mine would have to be....

With recent post about making the Thorn Rep items only able to be bought if, you have the dlc. How will that effect those who already have the said weapons say Charge Blade?

When if at all will there be new rides such as Cerberus (with or without turret) or other rides that can hold 3-4 players?

Could we ever get side skills to do like say fishing or like a bar w/ mini games in-game? (to earn titles or just post scores for fun)

When will we get more Episode Missions / Story Missions that reflect what has been happening on the show?

Is weapon crafting going to be anytime soon and will there be options to say pick a model/skin to base the weapon off of or will it be a set model for each said model. (example VOT distruper [Light machine gun] has 2 skins)

Any ETA when we can adopt hellbug skitterlings has pets or even a Pow =)

Any chance on a new Major Arkfall/ArkBreak that involves a Grid Boss that equals WarMaster?

Will there ever be a option even if, bit store to buy special Weapon skins (like Rift)?

Any plans for an auction house or a trading town were we could have chat bubbles ONLY in that town?

I would also like to see armor dye's in the cash shop, that would not effect game play, but just some customization.

No, but he has made question threads from the beginning, so the Devs have started taking him serious, and answer some of the questions.

Yes I do. We all asked the following.

Will they ever adjust the in-game help menu, so it makes more sense and gives people more helpful information (like how to gain more ego levels after hitting the Xp cap)?

I would like to add if they could add a quick change load out button instead of holding Q or going into the menu.
i don't mind waiting after the change like it is already, just want to be able to do it on the fly.

Also could they add the faction reputation points in the stats tab?

Is there a way to turn off the bird noises in Silicon Vally or just tone it down a notch?

ah that's nice to know. But yea some rain and snow would be nice. I say let it rain in the valley, and make it rain everywhere else.

To add to this, will the tutorial get an overhaul to add more information and helpful tidbits about the new game mechanics so new players are not going in blind?

TL;DR well then to bad.

There is no TL;DR to this MASSIVE GAME BREAKING ISSUE.

You have covered up for them for far to long. I have no love loss if they are close friends in test realm, or IRL friends. The fact you haven't corrected them yet makes me despise it even more.

I KNOW THAT IF I TYPE IN ALL CAPS OR IN PRETTY COLORS OR HUGE TEXT, PEOPLE WILL PAY ATTENTION!!!!!!!!

Yeah, or the exact opposite.
