So, I guess Defiance has put in a new metaphysical play mode, let's call it "ghost play." When I log on, I enter the world, but can't see any wildlife or mobs at all. I log in just outside Parraba farm which is normally always under Hellbug Attack, except in ghost mode, there's NO ONE THERE AT ALL!

So, I wander around, every once in a while seeing a glimpse of the waking world as a car or ATV suddenly materializes and then zooms off, just to disappear again. At the spawn point, I see other ghost-mode players, most of whom just stand there looking stunned.

Ghost Mode isn't particularly fun, but it sure is pretty! It's a chance to roam around the world taking in the sights and not be getting shot at or eaten by the wildlife.

Seriously, though - can we please fix this? Some of us would like to PLAY.

I keep getting put into totally empty servers with no Merch Vendors. The Vendors show up on the map but when I get there, there's nothing at all. And when I try to do a mission I keep getting killed by things that aren't even there.

I'm sure this'll all get ironed out and the game is fun as hell when it's working so I have faith. They're doing a better job than DICE did so I'm happy about that.

How to tell if you're in Ghost Mode: try to use your special power. If it doesn't fire, then Ghost Mode Activated!

Also, run off a bit from your spawn point and call your vehicle. If it doesn't show up, or if it shows up back at the spawn point, then you've activated Ghost Mode!

This morning's Ghost Mode is at least an improvement over last night's when it was the MONSTERS that were the ghosts! I would spawn in and then come under immediate attack from invisible monsters and then die, over and over until I logged out.

Ya, same stuff was happening to me. I'm in game right now and it seems to be working fine at the moment. Just had to keep dashboarding and log in several times and it's fine. Hopefully it stays that way. I wanna get one of those big *** trucks I've been seeing players driving around in.

The invisible killing monsters are still there, and no matter how far you run, they still get you, because your not actually running away.... Only your ghost form is.

Ghost mode in competitive maps you get free EXP. If your team wins, there are few times everyone will be in ghost mode so you need to leave, but sometimes ghost mode will turn off for someone on your team.

Also Ghost mode you get to watch people walking in the sky sometimes. If you see a human character.

Well, the really big semi trucks you see around Tranquility are just for one particular mission. Though that would be a pretty sweet ride!

Ah, ok. I could've sworn I saw a player spawn one and hop in. Still, like you said that would be sweet! Maybe future DLC, eh? :D
