Sledge, its great that you fixed the recorders, but what about the missing challenge for pursuit? without it fixing hope does very little :(

How do you fix server crashes?

Did they mean "put up measures to prevent server crashes?"

Several players have suggested making it where vehicles didn't despawn so fast. Why was the opposite achieved? Just curious why the dev team chose this route.

i found it annoying have 30 Challengers in my sight during and Arkfall. Glad they went this route. Why would you want it longer, RP reasons? (serious question not meant to be condescending)

Nah, just sometimes I like to get out, do a few things, then hop right back in. Usually despawns right when I'm done doing what I'm doing. But hey, this route is cool too, not what I wanted, but then again, I can't have everything I want, so I'm good with it :)

I would be happy if it despawned as soon as a player gets out, but when spawned, go ahead and spawn the player inside of it by default. I guess my request wasn't worded right. I've been dealing with a lot of lag issues so when spawning I lag to "enter" the vehicle and sometimes those spikes will cause my vehicle to despawn before I get in.

Technically it could despawn as soon as a player gets out, but when spawned, go ahead and spawn the player inside of it by default.

Nice k, thats what I was thinking. It sweet to pull up to a shop, hop out, sell, hop back in. Possibly in the future it they could develop rules that will allow that to work, but not allow them to pile up in my LOS.

yeah but i think the main thing in a MMORPG is to be unique and you can't achieve that with 7-9 outfits and a couple of helmets which don't go with the outfits

Obviously it is to reduce system resources and graphic clutter. Both to increase average performance for people. Vehicle summoning does't hinder you in any way, so why not? :)

Thanks guys, though one thing to consider. In a Mature rated game, I'd love an option to turn off the swear filter, for that matter on the forums. I got a chuckle out of " ****load of crashes " on the OP server update information at the beginning. Even the mods get 4 stars ;)

Can we get a fix for the multitude of missing missions and other Pursuit requirements?

Including -

Progress resetting when moving to friends.
Remove some of the ridiculous ones such as having so many friends online at once... What if people wish to play in a small Clan with 5 or 6?

Last Hit on the Arkfall bosses is stupid as well.. Complete luck if you get it with 50+ people shooting at it. Can almost guarantee that people do not stop shooting towards the end if they have it..

Join a clan, get on TeamSpeak, forget chat and voip... (bypass the delay if you will)...

We routinely get groups of groups to do arkfalls, and certain repetitive missions... Agree that the social aspects should be improved, but these changes today are welcomed!

What the heck? I want my car to stick around longer, not shorter. I get out of it, and I barely walk away from it, turn around, and it's missing like someone stole it! I thought we were in the San Francisco area, not Detroit. "Gone in 20 seconds".

Seriously, when I park my car, I want it to stick around. It would also be nice if I could us it for cover in all those instances where I hop out in the middle of the street to fight enemies. They bring their own cover, so why can't I?

Well you can spam invites, and then once you get the objectives, you can PUNT them out. Also with larger clan you have a better chance someone will get clan rewards, which are a nice 7% for 24 hours.

So ... any eta on the most important issues ? (especially for a mmo)

1- Broken chat in various way's, it would take a while to list everything that's broken about it.
2- Push to talk key
3- Voice chat settings to adjust imput/output device and volume ect ...
4- 120hz monitor fix ? (aside of messing with a 3rd party program to mess with your registry......)
5- UI but especially bigger chat window / longer lasting messages

so when are they going to fix liberation of the lost glitch where when im adding a mod slot to my gun then join the game i have my weapon that has its mod slot being added deleted upon joining the game. i have lost 3 maybe 4 guns to this so far and i am far from pleased. i paid good money to get loot chest just to have my gear deleted not cool. lost my favorite gun a rare one too. please fix soon i wont be adding mod slots for the guns before joining co op liberation of the lost. and yes i play that one a lot good loot drops. i might just never buy bits again just wasting my hard earned cash. further more i have not been compensated by the company after reporting my guns being deleted due to bug lame. that would just be asking to much to have my gear back. that was deleted. :mad:

Tell that to the kid who was saying they are all lazy and should lose their jobs.

How do you fix server crashes?

Did they mean "put up measures to prevent server crashes?"

Yeah, ideally the servers wouldn't crash. It's software bugs that cause this. It's almost impossible to find and fix all bugs, so they'll continue to do this as time goes on. The servers seem quite stable for game of this scale this early in its life cycle.

You guys really need to add a message system to the centre of the screen that spams when you are going to take the server down just like every other game I have ever played :)

I agree, the little message in the chat box isn't exactly the most prominent of reminders.

Several players have suggested making it where vehicles didn't despawn so fast. Why was the opposite achieved? Just curious why the dev team chose this route.

My guess would be they did this because having a **** ton of vehicles laying around clutters up the area, especially when lots of players are around, and puts extra load on peoples systems.

Nice to see that you are fixing the problems quickly but a little warning would be nice that the servers are going down for maintenance. I've been playing on Xbox and the first time their was a warning saying the server would be going offline for updates but the 2nd and 3rd time I have just been booted out.

Also can you put EU times in the title or post as well, trying to keep up with the time zones and working out when 2:30pm PT is in GMT is slightly annoying.

We will be starting server updates on ALL Platforms beginning at 2:30pm PT.

Server Downtime:
Date: April 5th, 2013
Time: 2:30pm PT
Duration: 30 minutes (1 hour for Xbox 360 NA and EU)

Patch Notes:
- Fixed a ****load of server crashes
- Removed a broken superweapon
- Reduced vehicle despawn time from 20 to 10 seconds
- Fixed the “Mines of Madness” pursuit to update on finding the “That’s All I Got” data recorder
- Adjusted location of the “Hope” data recorder at Union Depot mine
ok thanks for the crash fixs ( which I only experience in Matchmaking), but what about the VOICE CHAT and GROUP STATUS in the Matchmaking as well.

Priority#1: Voice chat and text chat for all aspects of the game, ie, Area, Group, Team and Clan. TOP PRIORITY!!!!
Priority#2: Give everybody there pre order items that they deserve, I am still waiting and yes I redeemed the code at the in game Defiance store and have yet to have anything in my claim box. total and utter B.S.
Priority#3 Disconnects during Matchmaking/ Open world.

I promise if you fix those three things the Majority of Players wont even take much notice of the Other Little things, in which you all can tinker away with in your dungeon without being Lashed at by the Public.

So ... any eta on the most important issues ? (especially for a mmo)

1- Broken chat in various way's, it would take a while to list everything that's broken about it.
2- Push to talk key
3- Voice chat settings to adjust imput/output device and volume ect ...
4- 120hz monitor fix ? (aside of messing with a 3rd party program to mess with your registry......)
5- UI but especially bigger chat window / longer lasting messages

Probably in the big April 15th patch mentioned elsewhere.

any news on when your gonna release a solid pc ui and a workable chat system that inspires social interaction and a mmo feel so tired of solo play and the lame chat system as it is

Join a guild (Not being an a**, but find a good guild for social playing). I happen to like the chat system, it keeps all the kids from spamming nonsense like in other MMOs, such as poop or fart jokes. The chat goes away so quickly that there is no point in them just rambling on. Guild with Vent or TS has improved the game so much to me, although I liked it solo as well.

Next people will be expecting all downtime to be posted in all 40 odd timezones. Is it reallt that hard to check it yourself, or to just learn what the difference is between your zone and PDT/PST that they post the times in?

PDT = UTC -7
PST = UTC -8

We're currently in PDT at present, in case someone missed that.

God is busy trying to figure out how to do "The Heist" without getting killed so he won't spawn "outside" of the locked doors.

The chat works except its "off" be default as opposed to every other game on the market that has the never ending scrolling babble from everyone in the zone. So you have to press "enter" to turn on the chat and you get to see the previous 4 or 5 lines, usually system messages.

Now in all fairness to Trion, they do have voice which turns on automatically when you group, assuming it wasn't turned off in the audio section of settings. Of course there is no push to talk option. There are no options actually, its on or its off that is it.

Actually, prime time starts closer to 7 pm on the east coast due to most work shifts getting out at 5 or 6 pm. With bringing the servers online by 6 pm or 6:30 pm depending on platform, this means they will be ready when the bulk of players begin to surge in.

Is your mic on mute on your system settings, do you have a switch to mute yourself on the mic? Try going into something like google+ or skype or just a recording program and seeing if your mic is actually working Sounds like it is an issue from your comp/mic and not the Devs end.

Perhaps they should set a long 30 second spawn time when out of combat, but if the player in control of the vehicle goes into combat it reduces to a 5 second spawn time. Something to that order would allow people to do things at a quick stop without clogging up a Arkfall fight with incoming vehicles.

As I'm from the UK just wounded when the server would be back online much appreciated if anyone can let me know? Xbox platform

It will be about an hour man, might be a little longer if they end up having any more problems.

Ok what about the player character glitch where everyone appears as the default character on your screen and same for yourself, you will appear as the default character on other's screens for a minute and then it'll change back and this process will continue? Anybody else seen this?

Several players have suggested making it where vehicles didn't despawn so fast. Why was the opposite achieved? Just curious why the dev team chose this route.

Probably because of arkfalls and the 100 vehicles sitting there.

Also people keep parking them on mission points so you cant select them.

so when are they going to fix liberation of the lost glitch where when im adding a mod slot to my gun then join the game i have my weapon that has its mod slot being added deleted upon joining the game. i have lost 3 maybe 4 guns to this so far and i am far from pleased. i paid good money to get loot chest just to have my gear deleted not cool. lost my favorite gun a rare one too. please fix soon i wont be adding mod slots for the guns before joining co op liberation of the lost. and yes i play that one a lot good loot drops. i might just never buy bits again just wasting my hard earned cash. further more i have not been compensated by the company after reporting my guns being deleted due to bug lame. that would just be asking to much to have my gear back. that was deleted. :mad: probally would have stopped after the first one.

reason for this is because of arkfalls and other places where lots of people abandon vehicles, i like the shorter time. It is no big deal to get the vehicle back.

I believe I saw something about them considering removing the mod matrix until it's fixed to keep people from doing it. However, while I'm not giving them an excuse for such a bug I can't believe people are still doing it when they know why/how it's happening

You could also run over to the vendor and sell it, or just exploit it for Salvage. It was reported long ago in both the Alpha and the Betas. I'm sort of surprised it took this long to remove it.

Wonder what this Super Weapon was.. Anyone got an idea?

This is just a theory, but during one mission you have to "Search Rosa's courier", well I found that spot well before doing that mission and in place of the body that would be there it was a grenade launcher that said "Advanced Weapon" upon interacting with it a grenade launcher was glitched into my primary slot, after finally unequipping it I found it in my inventory labeled as "Search Rosa's Courier". It was also farmable and sold for about 200.

i found it annoying have 30 Challengers in my sight during and Arkfall. Glad they went this route. Why would you want it longer, RP reasons? (serious question not meant to be condescending)

Wow well I think that sucks. I like getting out of my vehicle and being able to use it for cover.

I personally think vehicles should not de-spawn. They should also implement a collision system, and not that it can't be done, it is implemented in Planet Side 2. Really lame driving down the road and driving right through other people. Game is still tons of fun, but reducing vehicle spawn time was kind of lame.

theres servers for US and Europe, so they could choose a better time and do the updates for each in the middle of the night, right now is primetime for east coast NA on a friday night, that is just about the worst time possible to bring a server down

Bear with me, as I am new to PS3 PSN, but shouldn't we assume that once we have updated everything we should be able to play the game? Is that too much to ask?

If so, I retract my critique of this experience... And look forward to future better experiences when things go as planned.
