I dunno about anyone else but this first night of NFH was much better than the past HH and Exl events when it comes to spawning.

9 Majors and 16 minors completed with multiple other minors on the map at the same time and that was in just a 3 to 4 hour window of playing.

Drops wise can't complain either
OJ relentless Magnum
OJ relentless Saw (weekly box)
3 t4 relentless magnums
1 t4 relentless bolt sniper

I did 3 majors and 4 minors in less than an hour and a half. Oh and even had to deal with a server reset in that time! So I'd say the spawn rates are a lot higher,for now... lol

Spawns are much better. Drop wise, I pulled an oj nanoless AR and a t4 mod. Tbh though, it's still early and I'm not worried about it since I don't like the guns much anyway. Using this event to level baby toon.

I got an oj nanoless Repeater for weekly and an oj Shotty in another major. Also got at least 5 T4 Mods, most of which where Recoil Stocks.

Yea we had fun last night hopping to each one. Much better than HH and EXL. Whew!


My drops were unremarkable. Purple was my highest rarity: shottie, bolt and pistol (blaster)

I think the vast majority of players is more interested in the free t4 jackpot than any of the paid jackpots currently on offer lol.

Wait, so the unannounced server restart last night wasn't to upload a hotfix for the Irath costume issue?

So why did they reset the servers last night? Every time they reset the servers it nerfs event ark fall spawn rates for a couple of hours. I was on for about 30 minutes after the reset and almost everyone I know never even bothered logging back in.

Did the daily and weekly in about 2 1/2 hours. Purple cyclone minor drop, and purple cyclone daily and orange cyclone for weekly. I don't use sniper rifles.

Was disgusted so logged out for the day.

I don't know about the restart but I still can't play on my main characters so I created a new one today but it's not the same.

I've turned the game off for now until I here back from support to say it's fixed.

Have fun guys.

Damn, sorry to hear that. Last night we had an unannounced server restart on PS3/NA around 11PM EST. I saw the dev's comments earlier and I assumed that this was to upload a fix for the problem that you are having. It's a shame that they can't just reset your outfits to a default of "unequipped".

Logging off/on usually helps me. Make sure they are turned on as well. One time I had team chat off and didn't even realize it (I am sure I didn't even turn it off!) For awhile I wondered why Warmaster chat was so quiet :confused:

I would say the event spawn rates kinda suckec yesterday, from my perspective. Loggeed in six or seven times throughout the evening and overnight, only saw just one major and two minors.

Alan Hawk
11-17-2015, 04:00 PM
I had already done all of that, but they are good suggestions. The only change I've made to my system is unplugging my game controller. I'll plug it back in, but if that's what is causing it, something is seriously wrong.

Odd. I logged in about 10 minutes after the restart and went to 2 events back to back within minutes of logging in...Will start whispering you when I get to them...

So got to go to two majors tonight. One ended right as I spawned in, so no credit for it, the second froze my Xbox, by time I got back in it was over, again no credit for it. That, plus the low spawn rates yesterday, coupled with voice chat completely not working for me makes this event a complete joke so far for me.

So far only completed 1 minor out of all the ones i went to... (always disappears as i drive to them or always miss when i tp... -_-) and dc from ever major so far. idk, thinking this isnt my event... which sucks because i want a turkey spawning shotgun... aka Gluttony.

I wish they would crank up the TL like did during Midsummer Mutiny or apply Expedition difficulty. The majors I've been to end quickly. Heck I started one on a new drop from beginning to end and it lasted all of 10 minutes. I would care more about drops if I could play one for least 15 minutes. Ugh.

I haven't been to a major NFH that has lasted longer then 4mins. Need players to stop shooting bio-men and shoot the others, NFH ends after bio-men stop spawning and are dead.

you concept makes sense, but often those are the only enemies you can see. regular enemies drop often before your bullets reach them. these Arkfalls just to don't have enough enemies to go around.

The biggest problem with buffing the event is the whiners that will come out of the woodwork complaining about how hard the event is...

I know at most of the AF's I went to last night, the final was ticking down to 23-24 minutes. It was the same with HH.

By the end of the event, and a lot of ppl were bored with it, I would see clocks dip below the 10 minute mark.

The event has been live for all of 48 hours, give or take. They'll last longer as it courses on...

Truth. I think the first Hulker Hell, majors stopped being defeated towards the end. They will get harder as ppl burn out.

Unfortunately fewer players also means fewer shards which in turn means fewer event majors. So we either get more ark falls that are over quickly or fewer ark falls that last longer. I can't say that I am very satisfied with either option.

And that's the downside. Though I did complete one about 30 minutes ago which was longer but the zone seems empty.

Managed to complete the holiday pursuit today with my low toon and have started to work on it with main. So far i haven't encountered nearly as many issues as with HH event far as critting out and such, great luck on loot day 1 but since then i haven't gotten anything but t3s i don't need. Such is my fortune haha.

Day 1 pulls: Nestling Death, Restless OJs: Auto Shotty, Cyclone(electric), Blaster(fire)Main toon weekly, and Saw(bio) Low toon weekly, about 4 t4 mods luckily 3 of which nearly completed set for my JP pull.

Day 2-to current: t3 goodness....

I haven't seen an oj yet other than the weekly. That's pathetic considering those of you who know me; know that I am on 8-10 hrs a day or more. No problem with the spawn rate; much better this go around. The main issue I despise is the lack of respect for other people. Everyone is aware of the problem the BMGs cause yet I see 5k & 6k ego players running around with them. Hell I have a double infinite BMG yet I don't use it. Simply because I have consideration & respect for my fellow gamers. For 3 days now I've not been able to complete a single event major because as soon as I get tagged with the BMG healing beam I glitch out & hard freeze. (not DC "HARD FREEZE") Just wish Trion would do something about that or people would be a bit more considerate & respectful to those around them.

Accellios
11-22-2015, 05:12 AM
Me too. Dropping enemies are dieing before they hit the ground. Thing is if you don't do enough damage (bullets spent)to the enemies in the event your drops will suck even more than usual. That's the main issue with the enemies being so weak. My low ego (726) toon with a oj BHF AR ego 194 I'm getting critical & power kills left & right. Now that is weak.

Saturday night did 2 majors got 2 non named ojs plus a another 2 oj's outta T3 boxes.
Sunday night did 10 majors got t3s all night long.

Have noticed a new problem in the last couple days I've never had happen before.
Can complete all the way through a nfh Major but after the score screen none of the other players start to load back onto the screen and im unable to pick up any ground loot. After about 30 seconds of this im either disconnected or the PS3 hardfreezes entirely its about a 50/50 split between both outcomes.

Have no problems as long as I exit out of the game entirely as soon as the problem starts but it getting tiring having to do it every 1 to 2 majors.

Thats what i think too. A few selfish just blinding anyone else for a mere 2 keys more. Then you must see this failed socialized on top of scoreboard. So all thats left from gameplay during the event: tag one enemy that you are in for the jackpot lottery. So please trion change something and stop rewarding the griefers.

Yes but aren't they still just medical dispensaries? Or is it now for sale for legal recreational use in Illinois as well?

That said, I recently got Dungeon Siege 3 and just two days ago got Payday 2 as well. So I haven't played Defiance much this event. So I can not say much about it's droprates other than that for the 4 hours that I did play, 3 I never saw any NFH Arkfalls and the one hour that I did see several I never made it to them before they ended.

Started using sheild spanner mk2 and now I get 300% more t2 mods off the ground.
