LoL, why did you miss another major? Couldn't you have tp'd somewhere near or tp'd to a friend?

A lot of times when you're stuck like that, there is no UI to make that interaction. I missed a couple last night because of similar circumstances.

How long does it take to switch from overcharge to decoy and get out during an ark-fall? Too long. I spent an entire NW major loading the character screen to switch, when it came up, the ark-fall was over and I was free. At least you had plenty of ammo!

The lag during this event, so far, is worse than any of the others. In my opinion.

Several times, I'm not able to switch weapons, ammo up at a box, place a spike, see enemies, collect the meager drops off the ground.{Did 8 mjrs last night. Saw a total of 4 blue and 2 green drops. No purple. All white! I mean, I understand it's the "Nuclear Winter" event, but all whites? C'mon.}

This isn't just your opinion, it's obvious! So far this event is nearly unplayable.

I've come to the conclusion that lag during events is cyclical. Last event for me was nearly unplayable that 1st week, but this NW Event so far (fingers crossed) is running pretty smooth when it comes to lag and critting out. *Knock on wood*

You might be right. Solstice Strike went fairly smooth for me but NW isn't working out so well. Of course it's only day two so I'm hoping it sorts itself out soon.

They should have named it the Nuclear Lag event. Most of the majors I did all I ever saw was a red arrow where the enemy should have been. It did get better right before the reset. Hoping tonight will be better and I can knock out the rest of my 50.

That's the trouble with ps3, if you're down you dare not extract in case you crit and now we find out if you're not at the event when it finishes your karma doesn't count.

The deck is firmly stacked against us.

This is my experience with Defiance so far. I should have waited to start playing until after this event. I just tried to play before coming to the forum. No go. Stuck standing there with a group of players, not being able to fill ammo or use the vendor. I hope there is no event, or promotional, or holiday, etc, after NW, that way I can try and experience the game without all of these problems.

There won't be much of a window of opportunity for you in between the events.. unfortunately, that's what passes as new in-game content these days.

Bare with it as these weapons are some of the most powerful we've seen in game and if you're starting to play now will see you through for quite a while until they get nerffed.

Like the OP, I got stuck for the first time yesterday:

https://s30.postimg.org/rnpvvfktp/stuck_in_ammo.jpg (https://postimg.org/image/rnpvvfktp/)

I think it happened because the 'pick up ammo' animation was taking ages due to the lag (at the NW major), so I tried to change the loadout/inventory and then that locked it up.

So if you want to avoid this, you just have to wait for the ammo to be added, then move away and continue with your adventures. :)

I'm glad I was able to do a lot of the storyline missions before Solstice Strike. I tried one of the main missions yesterday, and with the lag from the NW activities it was almost impossible to play.
It was (painfully) hilarious: I'd blow up a Dark Matter monitor, he would just stand there for a bit with zero health, and then just gently lie down as if he was taking a nap! :eek:
