***UPDATED WITH VIDEO OF STREAM and MORE INFO***

At the end of the Live Stream, they mentioned and I'm paraphrasing, "Tune in on monday for a surprise live stream..." "We're going to call it, Defiance.......Badlands..." "...you know the place you have to drive to get from San Francisco to St. Louis..."



Are we getting much more map as a lot of us have speculated?


Sledge also mentioned they are working on scalable chat and permanent chat box.

HURRAY!

PLUS, they also confirmed quite a bit of World Events type content to come as well.


Love the live streams!


So, tune in on Monday 8pm Pacific for super surprise live stream!

Keep watching for the super content teaser @ 3:59 to End

I'm adding the below section, just to clarify that it's on Trion's Radar, and people don't seem to get it. lol

From Patch Notes (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?30976-Defiance-Patch-1.010-Sharks-(in-winter-solstice)):

GENERAL
● Improved server and client stability.
● Main missions are now replayable after completion of the last mission.
● Extraction timer upped from 30 to 90 seconds to allow more time for fellow players to revive you.
● Optimized objects throughout the world to minimize pop-up and improve overall performance.
● Area voice chat has been improved and is now OFF by default.
● Voice and text chat channels can now be muted independently.
● Text chat now displays for longer and no longer hides when sprinting or boosting.

From Dev Blogs (http://community.defiance.com/):


Chat and VOIP This isnt broken, we just believe people should use their psychic abilities more. Can you hear what Im saying to you right now? Yes, exactly. Were working on it.



Chat & VOIP Back on the list again, we have some fixes for this, both that we can do server side but also client side. Unfortunately client patches of this nature cant be deployed till the 15th as mentioned yesterday.



Chat & VOIP Yes, this isnt going off the list. We know. We hear it. We see it.

I think more people need to watch the LiveStreams as they answer questions that sometimes don't get answered on the Forums.

Yes! Expand! I want to go to St Louis. It looks so cool in the posters and the show. Plus, that's where the show takes place so we'd actually be able to walk around the city saying "Yeah, that's in the show. Seen him, seen her, seen that shop..." It would be fun

Why bother tuning in? Why not just wait until the changes are made, without getting my hopes up and if it happens then that's a bonus.

No expectations, No disappointments

Because, these are things a lot of us have been asking about for quite some time, and hadn't gotten anything other than vague answers.

Sounds fair enough then, i'm happy where the game is right now provided they fix the bugs asap, hopefully this next patch will solve the majority. As long as my 4 tickets are fixed within 2 weeks of patch..

Aye. I"m happy with the game as it is now as well.

Chatbox has been something I and many other have been wanting since Alpha/Beta. Glad it's finally confirmed. :)

Now did trion grow a brain and add a global chat channel so the game doesn't feel like a bad single player shooter yet?

They're adding region (i.e. Mount Tam, Maderia, etc.) chat, so we won't get flooded with global chat spam. This is a good thing. Mount Tam chat, etc.

I know a lot of people don't watch the livestreams, and today had far fewer than last weeks which was at 2000 viewers at one points, when i tuned in towards the end, there were only 300 something people.

I already knew they had more map prepared, if you check the eurogamer review for example there are photos for a enviroment that is completly diffrent to that which we see.

Makes perfect sense that the game would stretch to the badlands.

Thanks for info though, I will most definatly check mondays stream now.

I watched the stream while it was live and participated in the attempts to ask question and repeatedly asked the same question that Im just going to come out and say it, I feel was purposely avoided:

Are we going to get voip to have push to talk?

Many of us for months in alpha tried to get this done due to the issues of having (if you choose to now once patch goes like) having voip enabled and just turning into a cacophony of mouth breathers crying kids and basement dwellers arguing with their mothers. They -really- dont seem to want this to be a feature of the voip and some evidently on that team are fighting tooth and nail to prevent ptt from being apart of the system from all seeming accounts of things.

Basically, Im glad they finally at least after much complaint recently changed the area chat voip to be off by default(though notice they avoided saying for it to be off by default for actual grouping). But it seems it is going to take alot more complaints before they get that PTT solves most of the complaints about the voip system going on at the moment.

PTT is definitely needed. However, once the chat box is fixed, I don't see it being too much of an issue anymore, as long as it's always off by default.

Most PC gamers use Vent/Mumble/TS/Skype by default and can't stand VOIP, traditionally.

Indeed most use their own server voip due to quality issues with most game's voip. But as you said the push to talk is needed so that those not using 3rd party voip's can at least not be annoying with talk constantly on by default for team grouping etc. Point is they're fighting tooth and nail to keep the voip on constant or not used at all which is what many have the contention with.

Yeah global chat would be bad. Experience tells me it will just be a medium for trolls and attention seekers to do their thing for the most part.

Region chat is fine, as long as they allow you to turn it off in the options. Region chat is not immune to this problem either, so it's always good to have the option to just shut it off.

Unfortunately I would have to agree. I'm curious as to the nature of the stream though? It can't be like The Talking Dead, as the show will not have aired yet. Maybe a recap of the Episode Missions from the previous week?

i dont think anyone doubts they will fill in the greyed out areas on the map, the question is how and when, how much per dlc, how often will dlc's come out, how much content will be in these new areas?
