I have at least 20 people on my friends list that play Defiance and not a single person is online. I've been noticing all week the normal Defiance players haven't been in game either. Where all of you go?
I guess everyone is either burnt out on grinding event arkfalls or the staff changes for Defiance really sent a quake throughout the game. I know a lot of people have next gen consoles now but really?
It's a ghost town with noobs left over from the Dust514 closure.

3 weeks of MM followed now by 3 weeks of RB is a big burnout for players.

Probably ain't helping with all the problems that persisted through the MM event and the exchange closing.

Lol I thought it was just my friends list on PS3 NA. But your right there's only a few regulars I see at events. Probably a combo of weeks of event grinds,all the server stability issues and the crappy choice of weapons and the pursuit shield debacle. I'm just hoping there will be a few weeks off after the RB before the next event.

The choice of weapons could have been better but I can understand giving all the various weapon subtypes new event releases every now an again.
Mass Driver and Volt Relay are good and with the buff to sluggers Discharge Amplifers aren't useless now.

On the plus side its only up from here on the inevitable radiation and bio events

Next one will be Syphon(with some changes) and I wouldn't doubt out a new nano introduced before they do a rad or bio event.

@ OP I was standing around the fork surrounded by 6k egos today and after inspecting them I realized nobody had a persuit rating above 1500 :o

Only one I'm interested in is the Mass driver, maybe the Polarity diode (hate to say it) and just maybe the Circuit breaker. Doubt the Mass driver will replace any of my Sov SS2's though!

I'm tired of feeling I care more about Defiance than Trion so i'll just let them go on as they please.

I do want the Ion Shield but since the nerf it doesn't seem worth chasing minors all over just to see them end.

Youll love the Polarity Diode. Pulled one slapped a t4 crit barrel on it did the electric perks and 2 crit perks and poof im getting around 800k-1mil crit damage on the forges. With overcharge and a damage spike im getting 2mil dmg crit.

This is the truth, I remember the one game I played with Meaty, he did all the work.

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. And the menus in that game are so confusing to me. I've probably only put about an hour into the game. Ended up deleting it.

I'm waiting for No Man's Sky on Aug 9th.

Think I'm done with Defiance though. I don't think there's much else to chase. I don't even go to the event arks, just sit and talk, maybe.

I heard the pre sequel was trash so I didn't even bother. BL2 was awesome before it got hacked to death. Regardless, you know how to find me should you venture into Warframe.

PS- I was in game last night and I had probably 15+ people on and the few times I TP'd before getting the boot I didn't find one major. Most of the phases I was in were dead as well.

It's a ghost town with noobs left over from the Dust514 closure.

It is my opinion that it is because of Arkfall Event overload.. We all just finished four weeks of Mid-Summer Mutiny only to roll into Rolling Blackout, and as such--BURNOUT!!

While the thought of keeping things fresh and alive, and always giving us something to pursue, or do, or chase, is an EXCELLENT IDEA, it came a little to fast THIS TIME. Top that with the continuation of Threat Level 11 (Totally unnecessary), & the LOW RNG rate, and there you have it--OVERLOAD.. The Event overall is not bad though--it challenges (even with the lag and phasing issues--I think just to much going on at one time), better ground drops, to include epic's, and a chance at Legendary weapons or mods in the Weekly Bounty; however, the RNG Jackpot/Bounty drop rate is still way to low and the weapons themselves are truly not collection or use worthy. Not to mention the Shield should have been kept at the higher capacity as seen on the PTS page.

Otherwise, I believe the Defiance Team is headed in the right direction and are trying to give us--the players--and Defiance in general, a positive future.

So there are some of the pros and cons and the reasons for the lack of players--simply, OVERLOAD. Just an opinion :)

GPA

PS, lets not forget the loss of the Exchange. Hopefully the team will be able to correct/address and block the hacking/instability issues and bring back one of the BEST ideas they had.

If the jps were dropping as much as the rain at the major event arkfalls the servers would be packed.

What's in a name and it's only worth the name if it's sought after.
To be honest imo most just want them because they're a named weapon and not because it's supposed to be the apex of that weapon tree.

Which is exactly why everyone used to do DM arkfalls/seiges and incursions, the odds were with you for getting an oj and more often than not it was crap but because it was oj everyone was happy.
They felt they'd achieved something by getting a oj reward, the fact that the majority of the time it was crap was neither here nor there but they were happy and happy players played the game and spent money.

The weapons selected as jackpots along with the synergy just doesn't seem to mesh well. The constant grind for 2 blue rewards at the end doesn't help. I have had better drops on the ground in the thorn liro arenas.

The exchange closing was a big piss me off slap in the face as well. I finally started selling stuff again and as usual a few dip****s ruin it for everyone and now it's back to dealing with 12 year olds in zone chat not supervised after they just watched a Chris Rock comedy special spamming the channel with new words they have learned. Thanks but no thanks.

I agree. The weapon selection isn't the best, the drops aren't great, the chase has no reward and back to back events is a bit of a burnout. That might be why a lot of players have been away. It's cool that a few people got out to enjoy real life/nature. Can't complain about that.
But, it does seem like a wave of players/vets have moved on. The game isn't as exciting as when I started playing around 2 years ago. Just seems like stability issues, bugs, gear changes and a handful of players up to no good are killing the game.
Maybe in a week or two those people will return. Maybe not.
I don't own a ps4 yet since there wasn't a huge game selection. With No Mans Sky coming out, ESO still doing new content and Neverwinter I think there is enough to stay busy on ps4 if I purchase one.

I like Defiance and hope the Devs start taking those stability and bug issues more seriously by fixing them.
Still waiting for my DLC trophies. Still Hard locking my console.

My main toons never had to grind to 6k... when season 3 dropped and cap was raised, they already had the ego. I had an Alt toon that was 5854 after the XP update that I never cared to max out. It took a little over two months to get her to 6k on just xp.

all i have left for pursuits to get to 6k are pvp and i can't stand the pvp in this game its to unbalanced combine that with tons of bugs and freezing and other games offering a more enjoyable experience the only reason i come back to defiance is for my friends. the rng is also starting to bug me.

Two weeks into an event and nobody in the clan has gotten a jack pot.

Weekly rewards consist of a couple t4 mods and couple t3's.

Most of my friends are hitting the if I can't get anything useful by playing the game then why play?.

I myself am not going to drop $100 on the bit store in the hopes of getting a jack pot item. I want to play the game and get rewards. Not get lucky in the bit store.
