View Full Version : Olive Branch

It really feels as if the player base is screaming for an olive branch from the dev team right now. Currently the servers are in shambles. Connectivity is a huge issue. PS3 has always been terrible, but now even the chosen ones on PC are having issues. Drop rates and RNG are as bad as ever. Player population seems to be at an all time low. I think there could be a few small changes that could really help out, soften the blow of all these factors. I know I mentioned them in another thread, but figured maybe others could add their ideas for a few, small changes that could be made to ease frustration in the game at the moment. Nothing huge, like a massive update, or fix lag, but small adjustments.

1. Reduce the bit and the PG cost of mods from the runners at Iron Demon Ranch.

2. Re instate the score boost.

3. Slightly reduce mass blaster damage in PVP only.

add a full time community manger and cs staff for the bugs and issues section to the list.

Completely agree. Honestly, getting T5 mods from the IDR runners is literally the only thing keeping me in the game right now. I'm just trying to full T5 a few of my favorite sup weapons at this point. I don't really have anything else to play for.

But now, after grinding for 5200PG without the score boost, and then going to the runners and getting a mod I don't need or a duplicate of one I already got, it just stings so much worse...

A decent nerf to MB's when it comes to falloff distance. It would be great if t5 mods were 3200 instead of 5200. Weapons should be 5200 pg. Also it would be nice if standard syns were also available like rolling thunder, cannoneer, grenadier, etc. As far as gameplay goes the lag had never been worse along with the fact we are criting out in the game even after first getting on or resetting. Sometimes at the worst time when a match of any kind is about to end. And you lose out on forge, keys, and pg. Last getting the same miss at use sucks. I just need a damn redo syn infector sight. I've gotten ask other miss twice in a row. How is that quality rng?

Would be overly enjoyed for this one.

Need a increase in falloff dmg for mass blasters but a slight reduced dmg from them also (maybe) :V

I am not suggesting or asking for extra resources to be added here. I am suggesting small changes than can easily be made that will improve what is left of our player experience.

Any official statement would be nice. The previous 3 years always started January with "what's to come" post.

I patched and logged in for the first time in almost 6 months today, just to find the same lagfest, but with less people online. Made me a little sad to be honest. I had a lot of fun playing this game right up until the prefected weapons patch. Now it's just a tired shadow of a formerly great game.

Player population seems to be at an all time low.

It'll keep dropping unless they do something. We all know what brought the game to this state, but some choose to blame other things. I read old threads that devs ignored and simply didn't think of the consequences, look at Defiance now, it doesn't look promising, does it?

"News" meaning... speculation?

Trion's answer to a next gen port of Defiance seemed rather vague, at best.

I'm more interested in seeing a stable build on the current technology...

I agree a stable connection would be very nice indeed. It just feels like their efforts are invested elsewhere at the moment. That is why I am suggesting 3 simple changes. I would love to hear others thoughts on what "simple" changes could be made to improve our game time left here in Defiance.

In another thread Destro said there will be a Livestream to show us some of the "what's to come" in Early February. I've been patient this long, so a couple weeks shouldn't be that bad.....

Uninstalled this 2 months ago due to not even being able to get in the game, checked here to see if anything had improved in hopes of maybe being able to play again. But it seems nothing has changed and would be a waste of my time to try and install this again. Sad too i miss this game, but since the update where they added the stupid amount of vendors at Iron Demon, i cannot even get into the game. Ever since this Perfected weapons and PG crap was started this game has gone downhill just like the player population. R.I.P. Defiance.

agree pg amount required for mods is alot, 5200 for guns is ok, with boost i could get 2 boxes a day especially on a monday, i for one say DONT bring back boost to not flood and devalue all things... as far as mass blasters IDC not my problem i dont pvp but see zone wars on subject i hate nerfs and hate when people call for nerfs -_- imo i say just buff other things... like br's dmg at range falling off less for say at very least in pve for meeee the br guy :) lol

The reason I suggest a slight reduction in mass blaster damage in pvp is that they were buffed a while back. In my opinion, a little too much in pvp. Pve they are fine, but pvp they are very strong. I am not saying this because I get killed by them all the time. I do. I also use mass blasters. I would love to see and increase in other gun types. Carbines for example. I like them a lot. But they are just not viable in pvp at the moment. Yes, they got a slight damage increase a while back, but not enough to compete. I think it would be easier to slightly reduce mass blaster damage in pvp than to ask for damage increases in other gun types.

Probably reversing PvP changes i.e. Health(longer time it takes to kill) as well as shooting while jumping.

And there's also the Exchange that we all loved, maybe they could stop the exploitation and bring it back.

Of course there's events and all the stuff that come with it, bring them all back.


In my opinion, nothing ruined the game but the people asking for nerfs and changes.

Right now I just reeeeally wish Nuclear Winter could be switched on with the boosts for a couple weeks or something

Other than that, I'm basically just trying as hard as I can to stay patient and wait for the February livestream with the hope that it brings some sort of announcement or excitement. I sure hope it comes at the beginning of February though... been getting harder to stay patient...

I'm also more than ready for the next ex inanis synergy rotation. That or an event (or both?? :D:D) would be enough to hold me over until the livestream at least

I do not think any of the current content, and the WOW LOOK ATE THE 100000th NEW synergy, is going to cut it the lack of respect TRION has for it's player base has become very apparent. After all {{we the player base}}are not vital to how or why TRION makes money. At least that is the impression we are given and perception is reality if no one else is to say any thing to the contrary. It does not take a genius to scan past a few forums in the defiance section to see what is important to the player base. 1 New content NOT an new synergy. 2 Fixing in game issues,having a better response time to tec support, Last time I put in a ticket took 3 days for a response, just my little dig there ;). 3 You should be able to trade anything in the game if it is in your inventory a person should be able to trade it. I touched on 3 that I believe need attention. I know there are A LOT more !!!!! but it would be refreshing to see something. in fact I know i could write a 10 page {needs this } but will spare us all the pain of this.
