So

They increased the spawn rate of Event Horizon major arkfalls on Defiance 2050 but not on original defiance? How come? Are we 2nd class customers here or something?

Way to go devs, way to go.

3 majors on D2050 atm, 1 even at last chance, haven't seen one spawn there on d13 in years:

While on D13 we have only 1 after 1 hour waiting with even more spawn points since we have sillicon valley:

Theres even 2 phases on D2050 with half the population:

While on D13 only one:

Green icon means same phase, red icon, difrent phase for those that don't know.

Dont know if youve noticed but they dont really seem to care. The indifference has gotten stale and i have to say since the new company took over with their supposedly caring devs its just grown to be a total waste of time to bother even playing this broken game any longer. Seems they will be quite pleased to ignore us till we just all go away smdh.

Yea totally agree, other than Zeph and maybe Rarnock I don't think anyone else at Gamigo cares about D13 and Zeph is mostly focused on improving d2050 than fixing d13 so that leaves us with Rarnock who is prolly helping Zeph fix d2050 and in charge of the life support of d13 making only "new" events and (copy pasted?) jackpots.

Idk whats going on with the CMs but they seem to work in other games (Zyra on Rift for example) so not sure how much time left they have to work with Defiance, but even then they seem to be a little lost over the topics we talk about and need help with and they are mostly focused on replying to D2050 posts/players than D13 ones.

*attempts to hand over some of the major arkfalls from D2050, but fails*

In all seriousness though, with it being like that for you fellow arkhunters on D13...that seems crazy. If it meant us on 2050 having 5 minutes or so of breathing room, I support you guys getting some more arkfalls...although even with that, the crashing itself is another issue... :/ Sorry yall :(

i believe it was Wednesday, I logged in during my split shift, I had 2 hrs of ****ing off time as I live relatively close to work . and am afforded the luxury of a split shift. In those 2 hrs I was unable to find a major. FYI this is Long Johnsilver. my last account was permaded cus I was speaking too truthfully. I just happen to love Jane Seymore and I think she's the cats meow.

up the rates. been playin for years, never ever have ive gone a week and a half into an event w out a JP

Server about to restart so now we gotta wait 2hs for a EH major to spawn, awesome.

Server restarted and guess what? D2050 gets an EH Major right away:

While on original defiance we get the usual 1 hellbug / 2 scrapper majors combo after reset and gotta wait 2 hours now for the 1st EH major to spawn:

05-10-2019, 02:53 AM
2 more spawned on d2050:

While on D13 we still waiting for the 1st to spawn:

Do I have to provide more proof?

I think Zeph deactivated normal major arkfalls on d2050 and only EH ones are spawning, can you guys do the same on D13?

Any CMs working? It's 11 am on Germany atm, do you guys work 9 to 5? Last reply of a CM was 3 days ago, do you even work 5 days a week on Defiance?

not 20 :p It takes 15-20 minutes for us to clear out each major and with not many on....probably more like 6-10. Either way that is no bueno for yall. :(

Well it was a quick math asumption lol, anyway at least you guys having fun, we getting bored and bored of waiting for majors and for replies, not sure where the CMs are, 3 days since the last reply and it's already 2pm in Germany, at least Zephkial is at Huston and it's 7 am over there, plenty of time to check this out when he gets to the office and has a little free time.

Oh after 3 days im sure they are aware. As to whether they make any changes is another matter. You nailed it when you said we were the black sheep it seems. Many players actually returned when they heard drops were returning to major event arkfalls. And shortly after they quit again myself included. Not going to put in time for nothing. Time IS money and wasting my time is the same as wasting my money and that i dont stand for. Its been 5 years and they still have phase issues along with phasing enemies that can hit you and down you without ever being seen. And it cant be blamed on event af either since it happens full time whether theres a mjr or not. Alot of this bs could be narrowed down a great deal with an actual in game gm. Seen it done by far smaller companies and you know what we had a better community and well repaired game. No one ever thought of cheating or hacking and if they did they knew the whole game would be after them. Even had players they paid with in game store cash (bits in our case) to act as gms with gm accounts. Its not like giving bits actually takes money from them and it even benifits them more since they basically get a free employee. It would be a completely different game if they actually paid attention to the actual live side of the game
Dont just try it on the server side. When you go home actually try your own game see what we see from a non server linked network. Hell the connection speed that was posted is twice mine and i still play so im certain its possible for anyone to get it moving and have fun (if they can stay in for more then 5 mins without a crit ehhh).

Well almost 4pm in Germany and still no news of the CMs, PC NA servers crashed after a EH major final and now we can't get back in.

PC NA servers were down and now we in the 2 hours waiting for EH majros to spawn while on D2050 majors spawning left and right, it's not fair man.

Well, the jp drop rates also seem to have been tinkered with, extremely low drop rates to begin with. I haven't see or heard of anyone, not a single person, on ps3 to pull a jp. That's almost 2 weeks in.

Yea only heard of about 4 jackpots total on PC NA and only one droped on a major and well still no reply on the post but d2050 posts get answered right away.

So I just asked in zone, apparently a couple people have new jps, maybe 3 or 4. Tho idk if from arkfall or bits. Aside from those few, still seems really low.

llls1cKb0ylll
05-11-2019, 10:40 AM
Still no reply in here, asked Zephkial on defiance 2050 and no reply either, all I've gotten so far is a reply from Zyra on pms and all I got were excuses as usual, we are a small team, we can't reply to everybody, we are working on several games, the devs have their reasons, bla bla bla, thats not my concern, get real, go talk to Gamigo's human resources department and ask them to hire more CMs/Devs if you are overloaded with work, is not like they are losing money or are they?

We've been supporting original defiance for years (I've spent arround 300 bucks in this game and 50 on 2050 but theres people that spend thousands of dollars per month) when most of the players left cause Trion's f-ups, without us 2050 would've never existed in the 1st place so we deserve the same treamtment as 2050 players get.

Still being ignored as usual, more proof that we original defiance players are 2nd tier costumers.

Last year, I asked for the frequency of Solstice majors to be bumped up for PS3 NA, and that request was not met. It was funny because I made the thread like a day after someone asked the same thing in the 2050 forums, but their request was met and Chip responded almost instantly! Here we are three pages into this and it doesn't look like they catered to us at all. That should give you a general idea where all their "love" goes.

Edit: forgot to mention I was in a phase the other day for nearly an hour and no event popped up and couldn't get yesterday's daily from Tarr event pursuit.

Where? in d13 or 2050? havent play d13 most of the last week since the spawn rate sucks and no jackpots droping but on d2050 they disabled normal arkfalls so theres EH majors everywhere, something my friends and I asked for D13 for years and was never done.

2050 has way to many spawning .

KevinVonBach

Yeah, the EH spawn rate happens so frequently on 2050 it's pretty ridiculous.

To the point where I'm kind over this event before it has officially concluded.

This. My friends are suffering from Event Horizon burn out, and to be honest now the majority of the players have their event loadout and title prize I'm sure they could be cut back again to more normal levels, or mixed with the regular Arkfall majors? The AI of Bullwarks are now such that any majors with less than 5 players is pretty frustrating with many downs. I've attended some with such low numbers time simply runs out.

You'd need to convince a few more players in D13 if you want it to happen as they can then request it from the Devs as a group.

NOTE: This thread is for original Defiance (it was not posted in the 2050 section). The following post is referring to original Defiance only.

The average spawn rate for EH majors on my server (typically I only see one shard active) is ONE per hour. Every relevant person I have spoken to thinks it is on the low side (I haven't seen anyone complain in chat that ONE per hour is "too much" :confused:).

Perhaps it could just be made to spawn more frequently (continuously?) in Silicon Valley?
That would leave the standard arkfalls still able to spawn in the other (north) parts of the map.

What is the spawn rate there? How many EH majors can they get done in 2 hours, for example? Are they often jumping between shards?

Valani
05-20-2019, 11:11 AM
Good to see they're still holding the bottle for the 2050 players whilst we regular Defiance players have to continuously hop phases and wait minutes on end for one of these things to pop up, then they don't happen again for a while and often majority of us just Crit Out our get hard locked. I guess it doesn't matter if we ask time and time again during each event to increase spawn rate, they refuse to comply with a simple request.

At this time I don't even care, the event is almost over and jackpots aren't droping at all so I just moved to 2050 and made my way up to 5k but yea on PC NA the spawn rate is very low and theres only 1 phase, maybe on PS3 NA you guys have more phases so theres more EH majors spawning and woulnd't want a spawn rate increase since you wouldn't be able to reach every of em in time.
