Day 1 Arkhunter in attendance.
I played the Beta when it opened.
I used to be a "Trionista" or a "White Knight" but I have tarnished and faded and fallen.
Now I am a dweller of the shadows, a Dawn Patrol prowler of the territories who cries for what this could have been - but I am still here as many of us still are.

do not let join dates fool you in the forum. alot of us are day one arkhunters hideing in the shadows of the unknown refuesing to be seen by others for who we are.

well im not a day one but i am a vet. i came into the game shortly before DLC 2 was released.

we all have our reasons for disappearing. some the game. some new games. some just dont want to be seen or hurd :) we are out there. we are watching. and we are silent

its just on the ps3 it hard to get a expert co-op map going if all the vets stay in hiding

id think that all the vets on console are diping out due to stability problums on them. o.o alot of the ones i knew where consol users iv also noticed had disappeared from the forums. i think thay moved on.

if your in a clan why not ask them to run it with you ? if not.. i dont know what to say.

? im sorry ? good luck in your hunt for consol users on PS3 that are vets. you might find one some where.

looks to be everyone jump to the pc might need to try that???

not realy the PC vet numbers are low but due to the F2P modual in place there are alot of people that play day to day over on PC NA alot more on PC EU and not that many that are over ego 3000 iv met a few that where high ego like me and you in there or near 5k and up but most that are on are all low ego. between 100 - 3k the most i see of vets each day are all clan mates that have stuch around though hell and high waters and razer rain. but even then there mostly sticking to PVP and dont do PVE anymore. you can still get a good EX run from time to time if you ask them . it also dosent hurt to just drag along a buch of low ego players and carry them if your egos high enough. this helps out to.

try anounceing in zone chat that u need people for an Exspert run. or are looking for someone to run one with you. you might find a few people . thats what most people do when thay cant find someone to group up with.

also theres no real way to transfer from consol to PC not that i know of. and it might take talking to a GM though PM on here to figure out how it might be done.

"Pale Wars Ronin" since day 1 live. I skipped the beta....didn't want to spoil the "surprise" (guess the joke was on me). @Jaded: ego lvl is not a true measure of time spent in game. I was around 1k ego for well over a year due to extremely casual play, and only in the last couple of months have I reached beyond the 2k mark....I'm in no hurries to play.

but yeah....we're still here, skulking around, cappin' headshots, scrappin' loot, all mad max style.....

Still here, still enjoy the game, despite the frustrations. I've been raging mad more than once at some of the horrible decisions the dev team has made, but on the other hand, the game has some terrific aspects (and I really enjoy the show).

I'm still a forum stalker and show watcher, but I will be taking up the helm of the Guardian on my Xbox One come 9/9....the game is already installed on my hard drive.

In the meantime I picked up Warframe, free on Xbox One. Will hold me over for the next couple of days...

I'm still here and been in the game since July 2013 because I love the game! :)

I never got on the forums until my gaming computer got sick last December, so the only way I could get my Defiance fix was going on the forums with my work computer. I only started to get on and contribute to the forums regularly when the lags and disconnects started to get so bad this summer. Sadly, I'mon the forums more than I'm in the game these days... :(

Another "Pale War Ronin"
PS3
Played daily - Beta to launch day of 7th
Too much BS

Returned in July, my attitude now...
I invest nothing in this game (including more $$$), the second it becomes frustrating or the 12 year old noob storm of F2P gets on my nerves, the disk gets pulled and something else gets put in. I really don't care what Trion does anymore, the day i find something better (Destiny maybe) I won't be back.

It's just a game....

I didn't lie when I said I quit, I haven't logged in for almost a month now. Played since Beta, I don't think I'll ever play again, I actually think this game will be shut down this time next year. My friends say a lot of ps3 users quit, very few high egos online anymore and lots more said they are complete done on 9/9.

Op this right here is your answer

I log in do the expert coop of the day and try to get enough keys for a T4 Box.

Most vets only do the expert co-ops if they are a daily or weekly contract. Then they do whatever daily weeklies the feel like after that, maybe kill a few random things or do an arena or 2 then log back out. I haven't been able to get it to work since the most recent patch. I am currently trying again, but may give up for the night and try again in a day or 2.

Yeah, I started some PVP for more EGO pursuits. <sarcasm> Boy is that fun....</sarcasm>

Nothing like getting into the Cerberus and get right back out because it took 2 hits and blows up. Or waiting for Waterfront to queue up and end up on a team 2 vs 4. Good times.

Day one player here also. Have all the DLC's with the season pass & then some. Haven't even reached EGO 5000 yet (currently my EGO lvl is 3000+), and with DESTINY out on Tuesday, I don't know if I ever will. I TRY playing Defiance once a week, if that anymore, but I still come to read these awesome forums for my daily amusement. I just rarely post, like today:)

Get a sniper and a shotty, only minimal skill required. You'll have finished most pursuits after about 2h, after that it's 48h of afk'ing (or running PVE while in shadow war) to get that last pursuit that needs 50h in PVP.

Played alpha (vailanna) and beta (blackwolfe) then played up until just before the casti dlc released. But back in the game since 2-3 weeks.

In alpha my char looked like my avatar. Accidentally claimed the char recustomization from the casti dlc so I decided to remake my alpha char.

Been a PS3na daily player since July 2013. Used to log average 5-7 hours a day. Now lucky to stay on more than an hour.

Until new things are introduced, I don't see much reason for playing. I have all the gear I need/want. 98% of my clan have gone to other games. I see a few ppl on now and then, but only for fleeting moments.

I just found out that the guy who got me into my clan left. I go on these days, and don't find any clan members on, when it used to be always 6-12 clan members on no matter what time I logged on. If I do find clan members, they are new members who just want me to get them in coops they don't have high enough egos to get in or to tell them where a DR is, not to chat at all. I always login to clan chat with a jaunty "Hi y'all!" - no one answers anymore! :(

Most vets are bored. There is nothing new to keep them playing and Trion keeps making crappy decisions (i.e. grenades, encryption, cutting payouts by 75%, etc.). Sure, they have a new wonder dev trying to fix all that crap, but it's too little too late for most. Plus they refuse to bring it to the current gen consoles where is could run much better, they refuse listen to reason and they have a history of blaming the players for "playing it wrong" or shaming them for being "lock keepers". Any one of the many major issues could be overlooked but when you put them all together, it's just not worth the hassle anymore.
