Hey guys, as we all know Destiny came out today (I can't afford it right now, that's why i'm here right now.)

Anyway, I have some ideas to make Defiance better (After they fix the stability issues).

A lot of these are the "Bread&Butter" of most other MMOs and some Non-MMOs (Like Destiny)

1-EVERY MMO has an auction house, it's allows people to easily buy and sell gear and other stuff.

2-A Social Hub. I cannot say enough how important this is, especially in an MMO. Even Destiny has a Social Hub, and it's not even an MMO! Why can't Trion put one in Defiance?!

3-A Legendary Weapon is supposed to be I don't know, LEGENDARY!!! Just because it has an Orange name and an orange bonus roll DOES NOT make it legendary. A Legendary weapon is supposed to look unique and have a unique name and unique rolls and/or effects that are exclusive to that one Legendary Weapon.

please, everyone add stuff to this list if you think I missed anything, and Trion read this, because I heard Destiny is the BEST game on Console right now. You gotta wake up! And hurry up with everything! thanks for reading!

Most MMO also has Pets, that will pick up stuff for you

I'd like to have something like that in-game

Just theme the Pets that fits Defiance, which should be extremely easy, since we have all these alien stuff, and mutated stuff, also robots and such.

Sirserved you should play the last of us or play beyond two souls. They are very good.

Those ideas have been brought up so many times. Good ideas too but sadly, not in the budget.

They are in the budget, but they don't want to put these into their game, it's a shame really.

Check out the ghost town formally known as the suggestion forums. I have asked the ever awesome Kiwi Bird to run it by the devs to revamp that area of the forums and clean up the clutter. Unfortunately it seems like that suggestion fell flat like the rest of them.

I wish they would listen to us. Too bad they use our suggestions for the heater.

Hi Piers



2-A Social Hub. I cannot say enough how important this is, especially in an MMO. Even Destiny has a Social Hub, and it's not even an MMO! Why can't Trion put one in Defiance?!


We have some (IMO) pretty cool plans for something similar to what you're suggesting here. We aren't quite ready to talk about specifics yet, but once we finalize more details on it we will.



3-A Legendary Weapon is supposed to be I don't know, LEGENDARY!!! Just because it has an Orange name and an orange bonus roll DOES NOT make it legendary. A Legendary weapon is supposed to look unique and have a unique name and unique rolls and/or effects that are exclusive to that one Legendary Weapon.


Have you see the work Rashere is doing as talked about here (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?172550-Introduction-and-an-Update)? This is a start, but we plan on doing more on this front as well. This includes things like unique names, models, etc. Again, not quite ready to announce details yet, but you will see more about it posted in the future!

Thanks Phantasie! Yes I did see Rashere's threads and it is a good start, but you guys really need to shift to second and third gear before everyone leaves.

The Glorious PC Master Race has no f'cks to give for Destiny on consoles. When it's finally ported to PC however...

agreed. the game just does not fall into the type of game im looking for. it litterly reminds me of a none open world version of defiance and borderlands mixed with mass effect 1/2/3 all together rolled into one poo filled box of. ya.

bungie should stick to there hit halo and keep at that.

anyway. id love to see the pet idea. its been asked for by me and many others for well over a year now. no signs of them implamenting it but i did i think.. may not of been or may of been a hilusination. but still i beleave i once saw a dev say something about thay had brought it up a few time and asked about it and it was said maybe.

An auction house will never happen. Part of the design philosophy is to restrict the flow of loot and rewards to encourage people into the bitstore. Facilitating player trading with an auction house would run counter to that aim.

unless u could auction items from the bit store . such as outfits. and lock boxes that where bought with bits. or even boosts. that someone bought with bits. o.o just a thought

Alternatively, transactions could be taxed using arkforge. Trouble is, any version of an auction house that would be acceptable in Trion's plan for the economy would push the game more clearly into pay-to-win territory. Easier for them to avoid the issue and hope we'll play the bitstore casino.

Sigh... it certainly seems that way, doesn't it?

Now there's and idea for them, an auction house that charges 1 bit to post an item and a bit to buy one...or an auction house you can only use if you have a patron pass active...don't think it hasn't been mentioned:cool:

Great suggestions (nothing not mentioned before though), but at the end of the day if the continual lag & stability issues dont get fixed first & foremost--none of these wonderful awesome suggestions will matter--because players wont be able to enjoy the wonderful awesome game that is Defiance if we, the loyal players to the bitter end, cant stay connected longer that 5 minutes or experience severe lag, etc., etc., etc. Well, a bigger budget for all these nice additions would help too. Yes, a social hub of some kind somewhere in the land of Defiance gets my first vote & would be extremely nice!!! (like the ones in Final Fantasy 14 come to mind:)

Uhhhh dude, no. Im new here, Defiance is fun. But Destiny is next level. Also it is Open World, with spontaneous events, individual quests, pvp, and has ALL of the things being asked for in this thread, plus top support, new content is generated in Destiny, not patched in and released. It has great gun game and almost 0 bugs on ps3 anyway. Bungies single game pushed ps4 sales over 1 mil in just Europe. We are talking about a bigger development budget than Avatar the movie by 75 mil. Half a billion on this game dude. Destiny is awesome. Doesnt mean you cant also play Defiance. But dont knock what is obviously great.

It is pretty ghost-y over there. I took the first step and tore down that sticky - we'll figure out a better way to do suggestions in the future. The google method was interesting, though! In the meantime, please continue to post. I've seen some good stuff on there.
