Hey there everyone,

This is the question gathering thread for the Q&A this week! If you have a question or concern you'd like to raise, please share it now. Questions related to the Colony Courtship and Alcatraz will be prioritized due to relevance this week. :o

Thanks!

Are you ever going to fix the priority system for majors so that some of us don't have to sit around for several hours and not see a single major ark event tied to these events like the Christmas and this Valentines Day ones?

They do not have direct control over this; however, they have stated before that they increase the spawn rate on these so again it is RNG making these so rare.

Are there any plans to tone down some of the graphic displays in the game? Things like the BMG beams, Crimefighter blasts or spikes. These all, when used excessively, cause problems for many people in the game.

Will we ever be able to buy T4 and T5 mods for the regular synenergies?

They have said before that they are working on this and if I am not mistaken they released a patch a few months ago that started to tone down the crimefighters explosions.

I'm well aware of what they said about them. I'm asking if the intend to change that like they said they wanted to.
They said they would like to have direct control over what spawns.

Any info on fixing the following issues:
-Looping in instances - when you land in water and are too far away from land the screen fades and you get auto extracted. In a co op this extraction loops continuously.
-crediting the dlc trophies to those who earned them. (PS3)
- BmG latency
- server stability.

can we please get an option to level weapons up to the nearest 100 instead of only increments of 100 per upgrade?

this is less so of a question but,
could there be an option to sell ark salvage for scrip?

Is there a way in the future that the older DLC that has been out for a certain amount of time can be available to those without income by using their in-game currency? I don't mean like a few hundred-thousand scrip, but for maybe a much larger amount, or even a significant amount of the harder to obtain currencies.

I am only asking because I love this game, but have no income due to being disabled, and would love to be able to get the DLC, but I don't expect it right when it comes out.

Also, if possible, is there any interest in a way to trade in-game currencies that are hard to get for bits (that others used real monies for) to use in the story?

I doubt Trion will ever do this but two great games I know of that do this are Lord of the Rings online and Dungeons and Dragons online if you have not played them it requires months of grinding to get the DLCs on these though.

Hey, I have a few questions, and would really appreciate an answer as me, my friends and many other clans would like to know :)

- When will the quick menu clan show more than 15 members online? My clan that usually has around 40 on at a time find this a little difficult to work with

- Will the game ever be able to show who is talking on mic in a chat channel by showing the players name somewhere on the screen with a little mic icon?

- Will it ever say how many members are in the clan somewhere in the clan tab? For large clans we are unable to count each and every member from top to bottom when their are over 1000 members. Not to mention that their is a bug that if we scroll passed around 100 names, it kicks us back near to the top of the list again.

Thank you :)

Can you tell me what it is about Defiance that makes the Xbox 360 freeze? I had this happen this morning, the first time on this new one but it has happened fairly regularly on my older white one.
I've submitted a bug report in the xbox 360 section.

I have a bad history with this forum, so I'll attempt to keep this as civil as possible.

Regarding Alcatraz and the information received during the last live feed. I realize, of course, that nothing is set in stone as it is still in pts, but am curious.

This company released a bug riddled game. Hyped and introduced 5 lack luster and extremely thin DLC's. Some of which are still broken after nearly a year and a half. Gave us now, 4 holiday events that are unplayable for several and have borked rng systems for rewards.

Now, Alcatraz....Hyped and monetized. How does the company, after such a poor history of content release, justify the system that is being pursued? Is the content that fantastic and bug free, that I will want to fork over hard earned cash to participate more than once a week?

If the monetization of the system isn't successful, is there a contingency, considering it is being added as a goal pursuing aspect of the game? Or are you simply stating that, for some that aren't as good at the game and only enjoy playing it for what it is, that it may become p2p again just to capture the pursuits because once a week isn't enough to gain the pts. to succeed?

Are there plans for new major arkfall events, such as a raider or 99er one? Especially 99ers, considering theyre the most fleshed out faction in the game, it would be awesome to fight a motherlode or some other creature at the end of the event.
Are expedition bosses just reskinned/ reused versions of existing ones, or are they brand new?
Any possibilities on a expedition to post-terraformed Manhattan?
Will there be any other way to obtain hunter reqs without spending money? Maybe we'll be able to find some additional ones in the chests you mentioned you would add to the free roaming world?
And, with the Omec entering in scene for season 3, I guess that the Volge will make some more appearences in the show so, can you tell us if we will ever see a Warmaster raid of sorts in it?
PD. Thanks for answering me last week :)

What's even worse, is that the season 3 missions will focus heavily on Expeditions. So there is also episodic storyline that can only be done once a week if you are poor. And if you wipe in one you will have to spend cash for another try or wait till the next week for your 1 free try.

This isn't a question as much as its a request.

Can you make the game more gory? Like when a grenade explodes it takes limbs off. When a Rocket hits a guy they explode into blood like Quake 3 arena. Head shots in PvP take off players heads. Blood spats from machine gun fire and even against toons bodies when they are down?

Or when the players character is on fire they scream or when they are electrocuted they make seizure noises.

I think it would help Defiance not be as cartoony.

I know yous all focused on Alcatraz,
But is there any plan for Echelon Vendor / Rep?

Would be nice to add it a specific vendor crate, and maybe restict PvP loadout to the gear acquired in Echelon vendor?

To get started, create a starter box in claims (but might be scrapped by newcomers) or add 1 Echelon gun in weekly reward?


Not willing to be rude but Echelon seriously need an update.

I would assume for the same reason I see so many now, common sense isn't that common. Also your odds become 1 to 1 after 3 BMG spammers and would just fall further after that.

From what I've seen from the last events.
We have 6 weapon categories this time. All mods available in these 6 weapon categeories can drop (either from mobs, lock boxes or rewards) in rarities white to purple. Since LMGs/ARs/SMGs all use the same mods, those mods *should* drop more often (I've been getting a ton of those).

Here are all AR/SMG/LMG Mods (http://www.defiancedata.com/mods.php?w=Assault%20Rifles&t=&q=)

Oh thank you Fuzzy, i ask because all throught events, in some: Never ever seen a blue catalyst, Burst mag non spotted in some events, Converters non spotted in some events.

In this precise case, a blue catalyst (according to DD purple doesnt exist) would be more than useful on a heartbreaker synergy...

Huh, I remember getting a bunch of green ones on PTS, on live servers as well. I always toss them since I don't plan on using them :D Can't remember if I ever saw a blue one though. I just checked the LMG/SMG/AR Mod Vendor too and they only have a green and a white catalyst mod, no blues. Maybe blue doesn't exist (anymore).

Now, I know this has been asked but are tier 5 mods going to be added for all the other synergies like assassin, grenadier, cannoneer and so on since, the bonus rolls have been changed and made it that weapons really are not any different than those in the paradise territory and chimera faction vendors and can not receive the duplicate rolls?

Could see them adding a Legendary Mod Hoard to the bit store and to the lockboxes in game if they were to add them in.

only 4 in 5400 levels? Seems like you wasn't actively looking for them at all. When i did mine on my main they were completed before ego 5000 and i wan't even looking for them, on my alt i did them all in less than a week (probably in less than 4 days, but saying a week just to be sure).

BUT (there is always a but....) the frequency of control grids seems to be drastically diminished during these special events, noticed it with exl, hellfire, solstice etc, actually i think SV is already screwed enough as it is, the special events should be done outside SV only.

When will the trophies be fixed?

Will we ever be able to wield two swords at once? Cause that would be awesome.

Now, I know this has been asked but are tier 5 mods going to be added for all the other synergies like assassin, grenadier, cannoneer and so on since, the bonus rolls have been changed and made it that weapons really are not any different than those in the paradise territory and chimera faction vendors and can not receive the duplicate rolls?

Could see them adding a Legendary Mod Hoard to the bit store and to the lockboxes in game if they were to add them in.
This was answered months ago. Here's a snippet but it's number 16 in the actual source:



Will we be able to obtain legendary tier mods "Tier 5" for other synergies besides paradise territory and chimera?
For sure! Although, not for many of the synergies you are familiar with.

Will we ever see more than 3 (Hellbug, Dark Matter, Scrapper) major arc fall events ? Maybe mutants, 99er or E-Rep?

cheers

Minor Grid Arkfall

Can the minor Arkfalls in Silicon Valley have the 'Grid' Arkfall frequency increased? Do we even need any other type of minor in Silicon Valley?

Sounds like you are under the (Wrong) impression that minor arkbreaks (the arkfalls that are called down) count as grid Arkfalls. They do not. Quit calling arkbreaks and do the actual Grid arkfalls that randomly spawn in Silicon Valley.

Look at the way she worded it.

To me it, sounds like she is doing minor arkbreaks instead of the actual Grid arkfalls that spawn randomly.

Are there any plans to fix the duel option? So that when it is set to no it actually blocks duel requests? Honestly, it can get annoying after awhile. Also leaves players open to harrasment.

After Alcatraz drops will server issues be addressed? (I.e. critical errors, time outs, etc.)

From the reddit pages, someone asked.

Would it be possible for the person who put down spikes for an ark break, to get some kind of bonus? higher rarity chance or a score boost or x2 random loot crates at scored tier? as he sees no point in putting spikes down if he will just get the same as anyone else, he paid for the DLC and brought the spikes.

i did point out, the reward is you can choose to call it, dont have to wait on others.

i know this is low on the list of questions, but i said i would ask in next Q&A

1. Is it possible to add a third weapon, it would be nice to have the ability to carry three, personal protection (handgun), short range (SMG or shotgun), and a longer range weapon (assault rifle or sniper).

2. Link rewards for major and minor arkfalls to your score instead of RNG roll. You can keep the RNG for lower EGO players to have a chance to get a better weapon, but it is discouraging for those that spend a lot of time and effort to get a high score to be rewarded with nothing or unusable stuff.

I know the difference. I ain't that silly. All I ever see is the claim jumpers (think that's what its called) minor, if any minors at all. And yes I realise I could have had them by now, but I took a break for while, came back about a month ago.

This is misinformation that's spreading out of control. Rewards, weapons etc, are not being altered with the economy changes. Only scrip and ark salvage.

I read that thread and it did not say that, only experience and script are being changed. When the developers ask for input, that is what I am providing. You can provide a positive "great idea" or negative "that sucks", but I would like feedback from the developers on if the concept is likely to adopted or not. Otherwise all we are doing is creating misinformation.

On Xbox 360, 'Claimjumper' minor arkfalls in Silicon Valley usually mean a 'Control Grid' minor arkfall is about to spawn, or if I'm remembering the order incorrectly, one just spawned beforehand.

This is all we need. More spikes on top of the BMGs and Crimefighters. I like to see what I am shooting at. I like the guys that plant a Armor spike when its nothing but the matron left. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

They mean ark batteries which cost 10,000 scrip each and you need a total of 4 spikes to call down a major arkbreak.

Too bad you are on PC. I see lots of Grid Conversion Arkfalls in Sillycone, on Xbox NA.

you are complaining about nothing here. The guy you quoted is talking about ark spikes, As in the Ark Batteries that are REQUIRED to call down the Arkbreaks.
