Way too many players during the event Arkfalls. So much that it's causing the enemies to phase out. So much that only part of the participants actually spawn in after the ark is over.
Seems like these world servers need to be able to house more than 100 players. Lol

Yesterday at one point there hadn't been a major HH for about 20mins to half an hour and everyone went there at the same time when one showed. Many people critted out. I got back on faster than most and my friends list only had about 4 people on it when it is usually maxed. I'd never seen a major crit like that in open world before. lol

I can't speak for all of the shards but the one I'm on only has 1 or 2 majors all day so when 1 drops "everyone" shows up. Then all of the shard hoppers pile in on top.

Do you guys have any idea how many hamsters it would take to power enough servers to keep you happy ?? Geez. It will only be like this for two more weeks... then everyone will leave until fall harvest.

Maybe if we had normal hamsters, we would be better off.

To save a few bucks, we got these guys (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd8vl5LJoM8) from the temp agency tho. :(

Idk what why or how but since the first armistice event my connection issues have disappeared. Sure I get the connection has timed outside message everyday but I very rarely crit or hard freeze any more. I have the same internet and system as always and would love to know why its so.much better so we could make everyone's issues go away. Its not fair this happens to anyone...

they Supremed the lag on a 5% chance.
the crit took a 15% chance.

It gets really bad when 100-200 players all dogpile onto the same major arkfall. EVERYTHING and EVERYONE goes invisible. Fighting becomes impossible; your best bet is to just stand by the sidelines and wait for it to be over.

If possible it would be cool if the Final of Major's were an open world Phased Instance holding up to 60 players or something to help prevent rendering issues. But that cant happen. But something has to be done. Whats happening barley passes for a video game. You go to these events and it has nothing to show for it. The real events are the Minors and Ark Breaks, HH Majors blow.

Cars being unable to spawn in the red circle of arkfalls would help some. And its not like thats some kind of foreign concept. When entering "Dark Matter Base" with a vehicle they explode and are unable to be spawned within its perimeter. That would help prevent this nimrod tactic of just spawning rollers just to shoot them with Infectors to spawn bugs so they can go off to do all the work.

And just point management in general could be done better with weapons. Aiming has never been such a far 2nd priority in any shooter game as it is in Defiance. Its pretty ******ed on how much the weapons that don't need aim get babied, they should give very minimum points compared to the ones that do.

Cars are needed to keep the hulkers from running out of the circle and getting lost.

Wait people are actually doing this lol? Sounds utterly pointless to me.

It's not too bad sure I get rare glimpses of some Hulker's before I'm steamrolled, but in the process I pump them full o' lead and maybe an exploding pumpkin or two. Just wish the drop rates were a tad better have yet to see an actual purple drop in any of the event activities other than as a final reward from the scores. Like most events it's always just blues and greens littering the landscape.

You must not be on Xbox NA. It happens every major.

Yeah... sure... that's what the cars are needed for within a Major...:rolleyes::rolleyes:

I would rather take my chances on the Hulkers running off somehow and being able see them to go chase them then going to a event and not seeing them at all.

I just did this and it hard locked my console. When I came back the Hulker Arkfall was over an I got nothing. Honestly, as a gamer this is one of the worse feelings. To play for hours a day and get disconnected majority if the time and lose any progress. Very upsetting to see all the effort wasted. Even more discouraging when you come back and the event is over and you get nothing.

Trion really needs to step it up, why even have a massive MMO when your servers cannot support 100+ people in 1 place. Or in PS3's case, anyone. I don't know how they plan to sell bits and DLC when their servers do not work.

That's what you get for playing console. Join the PCNA master race; our problems are slightly less bad :)

Alot of us would, but you know, we were duped at game launch thinking we were purchasing a stable game etc... Now we have max ego toons on these God awful ps3 servers and we can't even PAY trion to copy our toon to pc.
Wish I could.
