It takes a long period of time before a major arkfall spawn. Can you please make the spawn rate a little higher.

Thank You! ;)

Back to leveling weapons / earning XP. 6 hours, 2 majors, 2 minors... Good reasons to participate at a marathon but a marathon looks different... Thought we wouldn't even had time to do a toilet break, now we can order pizza while watching sports

Update: 200 minutes later, one more major. Even regular majors are missing. Very rare today... boring like hell

I read the EXL announcement wrong. I though the time starts at 12:01 am on the 7th but it doesn't. only the Event does. The time starts at 8am PST on 11/7 and ends at 8am PST on 11/9! Obviously I mentally reversed the two. LOL




Don't miss out: the count starts at 8am PST on 11/7 and ends at 8am PST on 11/9!


Event Goodness

From 12:01 AM Pacific on Saturday, November 7, to 11:59 PM on Sunday, November 8, we'll be having special Arkfalls appearing in game as well! Attempt the Minor Arkfall "Extra Lively Hellbugs", or the Major Arkfall "Extra Hellbugs, Extra Life!" for extra fun in game and the chance for the Halo headgear!

Plus, we'll be doing LIVE giveaways on the stream throughout the event. Join us on the team (http://www.extra-life.org/team/trion) and have a fantastic time playing for a great cause!

The few EXL majors that spawned last night surprised me, I wasn't expecting the event to go live until later this morning. I returned back to Defiance on the last day of the Extra Life event last year, I think I managed to get to one major but don't really remember. Anyways fast forward to the present I see an EXL Major and rush to it...it just literally spawned and by the time I arrived on scene three of the crystals had already been cleared, I was lucky to even be able to tag something at the crystal I went to. So when it ended and the finale was about to begin I was rushing my butt to the location. I was surpised the Major looked exactly like the minor crystal ark site...I LOL'd and in less then a few minutes it was over.

Trion you should've made the finale of the Major similar to the other regular Majors at least.

Why can't the devs put some logic into the arkfall rotation system?

If event == on && arkfall.type == normal then
Arkfall.type = event

11-07-2015, 01:09 PM
Don't worrie guys their solution is to clear the maps, so I cleared nothing because there was nothing, and nothing spawned on 3 different servers for 50 minutes or more. But don't ***** because it's for the kids so when the spawn rates suck for hulker hell and nfh and solstice strike that's for the kids to so nothing has to ever get looked into.

NullWolf

the issue with the clearing the map is theres no guarantee the event you're looking for is going to appear.

Last night at one time their was a good 7 or 8 hellbug destruction and extermination minors on a single shard and a couple of us went and hit every single one in a short amount of time. Needless to say the map stayed empty for a good 10 minutes before a wave of raider and darkmatter minors swarmed onto the map.

Also while the hellbug destruction minors are easy to solo finish in seconds half the time they glitch and the thing you should be shooting disappears meaning you have to wait out the 20 minutes for it to expire

One would think so . Don't get me wrong I get it . Yes clear everything they'll show up . Well I know they can insta spawn a arkfall . It happened in a live stream along time ago . I know they can shut off the other arkfalls by default giving us 100 spawn rate because I've seen it done . Again these both were a long time ago and maybe changes that were made since then would hinder this but I just can't see why things like this were not planned for better .
Yes this 100% about the kids . No question . But how can they expect to keep out attention for 24 hours with every 2 hours we get 1 major that last a whole 5 mins cause there are 100 ppl there killing a small crystal . At least make it a real major . Oven a matron so we have time to get there

Lithova

^^^ I doubt it, otherwise we'd have better spawn rates for these major events....but nope they like to make statements like how we need to clear other events (and when we do) nothing happens so we get trollololotrion'd.

So they are able to "fix" this but they are unable to adjust spawn rates? Trion, you have to hire some experienced coders. I wonder about the source code, must be redundant and chaotic. The game is dead since 2 days, the map is clean 90% of the time I look at it. I'm not talking about Extra Life only, in general it's empty. No wonder the goal hasn't been surpassed yet, people are disappointed.

Lithova
11-08-2015, 05:30 AM
The spawn rate for these EXL majors is pathetically low. It feels more like a regular day in Defiance than any special event taking place. I was expecting to see server messages announcing various live-streams, announcements to partake in their twitch stream giveaways and more dev's making their presence known within and playing with their community...instead all we get is long waiting periods for these EXL majors and a notice that they are removing the EXL vendor due to some bug.

I find it laughable that they didn't fix the vendor exploit that they knew about 2 YEARS AGO! Of course, you're going to see people taking advantage of it. Especially newer players that don't know any better. For all we know, since the vendors were the only noticeable different between any other day and this uneventful event, then the vendors were... wait for it... "working as intended". Oh, well. Add that to the list of other known bugs that are over 2 years old (some since original release) that have yet to be fixed. Business as usual over here in defiance for the Defiant Many that just wanted to enjoy a 48 hour event aimed at helping children. There are so many other groups that have put more enthusiasm, planning, and execution into Extra Life. Shame that we just have this. 3 yrs running and this was the worst.

Well, it's near the end of this event and to be honest, it has been a total and complete disappointment.

1. The major arkfalls are over so fast (since they're all minor arkfalls strung together), they can hardly be considered as exciting or even vaguely challenging. It's more of a challenge trying to give my cat a bath.

2. The minor arkfalls are over so fast there's barely enough time to even port to them.

3. And the last thing, this event has shown clearly that there are issues with the spawn rates for the arkfalls. Not just special event arkfalls. Quite a lot of people went around clearing everything in order to try and force spawn the event arkfall but once cleared, it showed glaringly that for extended periods of time (longest I bothered to check was 22 minutes), nothing appeared on the maps (except for maybe a Bathhouse run up).

I just can't imagine what will happen if people all got together and decided to do this consistently. In fact all your competitors have to do is exactly this. Then when new players come into the game they will have the impression that it's a game with absolutely nothing to do so why bother playing it.

I understand that Trion has to prioritize resources and budget but if you do intend to keep this game going then something has to be done. The sheer lack of care/professionalism that went into this particular event is just too incredible to comprehend.

Well, it's almost 1 am here, and only seen 4 mins worth of action at what might have been a major....?

I'm sure you've heard it already, Trion. You dropped the ball on this one. You dropped a big ol Poo on everyone's expectations for this event. I was actually looking forward to this event, compared to the Halloween Hulker Hell event...

Here's something to consider for next year: Bundle up some cool bundles and lock boxes for everyone to buy and use 90% of the proceeds for EXL. I'm sure many of us don't mind giving to a good cause. And The Extra Life Charity is a pretty good cause.

This year, I was willing to give $75 just so I could get that sublime Challenger....Didn't happen. Why? I'm not tied into the whole Social Media thing. It's just not my thing. Sure, call me a neanderthal if you want to. But when it comes to dealing with some of the world's biggest ******s online (and mind you, I'm not calling everyone this, just the ones that like to push things too far...), I'd rather steer clear. I think having lock boxes and bundles would cut to the chase, without having to chase down a single participant as a rallying point to donate to.

You could start a bundle for $25-50-75-100, and have different things for the community with each of them that will make it worth while.

And if you still want to do the whole social media thing, that's fine.

But whatever you do, you better Go Hard or Go Home. And I would suggest going hard after the unmitigated disaster this event was for the community, because the overall consensus for EXL 2015 was: "This event really sucked!", and that is the 'nice' edit.

This year, I was willing to give $75 just so I could get that sublime Challenger....Didn't happen. Why? I'm not tied into the whole Social Media thing.

I have to ask what you are talking about, I joined Trion's team and raised 200 dollars, and all I had to do was provide my email. And since my email is attached to my Glyph account, I fully expect to receive whatever rewards I may have earned.

I still would have done it without any rewards, Extra Life isn't about me (or you), it's about the kids.

Once I gave up worrying about the Extra Life Arkfalls, I still had a good time in game working on stuff I've been putting off for ever (season 2 incursions) and even managed to make over 40 ego while playing this weekend. Less than 300 ego to go!

According to my spreadsheet I did 12 EXL majors and 5 EXL minors this weekend. I got a few purple EXL drops I like and I made close to 900,000 script before they removed the "dealer".

My thoughts on the EXL ark falls are regardless of the spawn rate problem (and it was a huge problem, I went over 6 hours without seeing one, and my clan was actively finishing all the non-EXL arkfalls that spawned and we shard jumped frequently) was that there wasn't enough mobs and they didn't have enough hitpoints. Also the fact that the major final was just another minor, made it extremely hard to get to the ones we did find in time to even do anything.

Next year they need to improve the amount of mobs that spawn and how many hitpoints they have (for both major and minor), and add a true final (mother-bug was suggested elsewhere) to the majors.

And raise the halo drop to at least a 40% chance.

They do that and people will enjoy the event and we won't have a bunch of pissed off players ranting here in the forum.

So when did this happen? I was in game around 2 hours ago and my money was the same as it was when I logged out last night.

If they did it was only people who were using a vendor glitch exploit similar to the one used in 2013.

How did this event pass Q & A? The minimal spawn rate is one thing, but the design of the EXL arkfalls.

The minors are over in 2 minutes. If some of the selfish, that dont announce arrive there first, there is now way to drive there in time.

The so called majors are over in 5 minutes. If you want to take part you are not allowed to do a coop or a warmaster. This "event" makes the game boring since all you can do is constantly scan the shards to have a small chance to arrive before its over. And when you do arrive, there is nothing to shoot at, since all enemies die in a split second.

Lol before the event started i would have liked to get the halo for my main and my alt.... not even my main got the halo being online nearly all of the time. Looked like they wanted to show me, im wasting my livetime with this game.

I took this stance after last year's Extra Life.. refreshing to see I actually upheld that.

It takes forever for EXL to spawn but it takes a blink of an eyes for it to be gone!

do the Devs actually plan on making a Comment about this Rather Disappointing Event that we all looked forwards to??

i realize most of the year nobody even knows who or what Defiance is,
but during Exl we had the chance to show a Lot of people a really cool game...
so...what happened? :confused:

This was my 3rd year participating in EXL with Defiance.

I chose to play Defiance during this event because I enjoy playing the game. I play the game because I'm not overly concerned with the rewards I may receive. I knew from previous years not to expect a lot and played as I normally would. If a clan mate or friend announced an event arkfall, I would go. Sometimes I made it, sometimes I didn't.

I didn't receive what I was looking for as rewards, and refuse to pay 5m+ for an epic shield. However, I did have fun playing the game and joking with friends.

I'll receive the awards for the fundraising I did, and be happy knowing that the kids at my hospital of choice will get a little bit from my "having fun playing the game and joking with friends".

And, I'm content with that.

It takes a long period of time before a major arkfall spawn. Can you please make the spawn rate a little higher.

Thank You! ;)

To clarify a bit on this topic, adjusting the spawn rate during the event wasn't something we can do. We'd need to make changes to the game, make a new build, test the new build, etc. All together this means that it couldn't happen in the appropriate time frame. Feedback on the topic is certainly being taken however, and will be considered for next year's event.

Ty Ocho,as im sure you guessed,quite a few of us were wondering where the hamsters were this weekend.
ty for explaining this. :)

i guess the next question,is will the Next event have a better spawn rate??
the NFH one?

How about making the major finale last longer? Something bigger like the Hulker Hell finale? I'm sure that could have been done. If we're all still around next year I hope changes can be made. I truly love the game and it would have been great to have the livestreams showing how fun it is. I am still glad I participated. Hope the kids and hospitals receive the money and it helps.

As opposed to adjusting spawn rate, could it be as simple as:

Normal Rotation: (I think it was by region?)

Minor Hellbug Arkfalls
Major Hellbug Arkfalls
Minor Scrapper Arkfalls
Major Scrapper Arkfalls
Minor Dark Matter Arkfalls
Major Dark Matter Arkfalls
Incursions
Sieges
Etc


Event Rotation

Minor Event Arkfall
Major Event Arkfall

There seems to be different ways of doing it, and for that, I won't argue with you. This was actually my first EXL in which I was ready to participate in, since the one last year, I had no clue what was going on in game, never mind the EXL event. So I guess I'm guilty for not knowing how to participate in EXL this year. With that said, I have no issues just donating in my own way, now that I know which hospitals in my area are included with this event.

Ocho, I'm glad to hear you guys are open to some of the suggestions. Here's to hoping that the next EXL event rocks.

Probably not with the time constraint. Next event kicks off in just a few weeks. Not nearly enough time for the "small team" to "make changes to the game, make a new build, test the new build, etc."
