Can we get some information on the shard system. Is it really just 100 people per shard? Can you only see 100 people across the entire map unless you enter another shard? Some more information would be nice as the in game world doesn't seem to be as highly populated as some expected.

i would like to know this as well. Im sick of games using these shards things because there is never anyone around anywhere.

1000 people per shard from what I understand.

I actually think this uses "phasing". Ive no complaints sure its alot different than most MMOs.

Btw, this is the future, Elder Scroll Online, TSW, Defiance, shows the way of the future.

You do realize that it's almost 3am PDT, and the people who could answer that for you are asleep, right? Bumping a post at this hour isn't going to help you at all.

If you can only see 100 people per shard. I saw 75 at a Arkfall...does that mean there were 25 somewhere just shooting mutants? =O

1k a shard 100k a server was what one of the devs posted in one of their little letters to the people thing. the info was in this http://community.defiance.com/en/2013/04/03/the-day-of-defiance-is-here-what-beautiful-baby-of-ours-it-is/ But it has since been edited lol.

and another hint at the number playing is in it now where he says they have scaled up to a million people playing. could devide that by 3 and figure current server size there about

Either way the bump was pretty effective.
