Grenades don't drop, but can be purchased through the Bits Store during an expedition... there's a reason I don't play games like Candy Crush. Which, co-incidentally allows you to buy Lollipop Hammers in-app when you run out.

Any thoughts?

yeah, that it was a poorly thought out cash grab and is insulting.

Yet I hear people are paying for it so I guess it's working.

Yea, great analogy. So Defiance is similar to Candy Crush because "it allows you to buy Lollipop Hammers when you run out". So basically anything that "allows you to buy" something "when you run out" is similar to Defiance. Nice. Now I can pretend like Im actually just playing defiance anytime I go to the store.

We should have all seen this coming really, but why would you attach the new arenas to certain parts of th game we all don't enjoy such as PVP ?
Seems Trion has decided to shore up flagging PVP numbers with a player forced mechanic of "want Alcatraz credits buy them or play PVP".
Sure If you come to Defiance to play PVP because you like rapid sniping or have some unicorn weapons and shields that makes it worthwhile, that's ok with you, but about the 80% of us don't have an ark shield/ unicorn weapons or come here to play rapid/pogo sniper and want to enjoy the whole of the PVE game we paid for ?
I understand lots of players aren't going to agree with me, this is merely my opinion and looking like I will not be earning too many HR's on the PVP based weeks.

What are your thoughts on how the mainly PVE based game could be better used to it's full extent including the new expansion ?

When the daily or weekly is PVP based and you face the pogo-sniper pros there's not much interest for many of us to do the daily or weekly, like I said in my post just my opinion, not everybody's.

Maybe I'm misinformed or misinterpret the Icons over Alcatraz island, It just seems odd that there's an icon there for king of the mountain ( 10 cap points in SW) and the other was expert Motherlode...

I find I can't do more than six levels of an expedition without getting incredibly bored - won't have a problem needing req's!

There's an Echelon NPC on Alcatraz that shows the Daily/Weekly for Echelon. Bring up the Dailies/Weeklies (It's J then tab on PC, no idea for consoles) and you'll see that the Faction "Echelon" has only PvP-based Dailies/Weeklies and is the only faction to do so.
Alcatraz Dailies/Weeklies are always Expedition based, and can only be from Paradise, Top-Notch, Soleptor or Von Bach (might be missing a faction but I think it was only the standard ones)

This^^ It is the same level each time with a different boss. Super repetitive.
