Xbox live had a few hiccups yesterday, and it unfortunately affected Defiance in more than just a few negative ways. Hopefully this has been cleared up, but there may be aftershocks, not too sure. You can try testing your XBL connection, or waiting a few minutes then trying again. Hope this helped.

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about, as you are spreading the idiot rumors started on reddit.

As confirmed by TTG, Xboxmb, S7sins, and pretty much everyone else....the Xbox Live service just had some hiccups. Some people didn't even get kicked off (myself included). This is also a Defiance server outage, not XBL related.

I would greatly appreciate the developers posting something that confirms/deny whether the servers have "crashed"/"are down"/"whatever is going on" so that we have some idea of what to expect for down time or when things will be running. All the rumors, speculation, or hearsay just clouds the issue. So i would personally appreciate some information at this point. Considering Ive given this game a really good review on amazon thats been top review for a while now Im pretty sure a few people are buying this game at my word, and after a week of constant down times for maintenance Id like to know whats going on. Im not mad, Id just like to be informed and kept in the loop by the developers please. Thank you.

here's the article about the hackers claiming responsibility. i think it may be a fake claim. maybe this hacker group just thought they would claim responsibility to give people the false impression that it is possible to hack XBL, but in all reality, they had nothing to do with it. then again, maybe they did do it because of all of the "always-online" rumors floating around about the next Xbox, just to prove a point.

Congratulations on being fortunate enough to access other games. The issue being pointed out though is that a rather large group of players are unable to connect to any online service in the games they play, which would point towards an issue with Microsoft.

My god. I am so tired of hacker groups as of late. Getting real old, real fast. Maybe somewhere, somehow, they proved a point on something, but now all they do is cause problems. I don't know if they really did it or not, but I sure as heck don't trust M$oft any farther than I can throw them, which with them being a massive corporation isn't very far. I'll wait and make a decision once M$oft gets their act together here.

Ive been to that site several times since yesterday. Its referring to "in-game" challenges, and DIRECT connection to the XBOX LIVE service. The problem isnt being posted here that people "cant connect to xbox live". The problem is "The defiance Servers are not available"... which if they werent available how come it allows patch verification prior to our attempt to log in to the game.

If your servers verify/patch us, its XBOX LIVE not allowing us to connect to your servers? Arent we connected when you are verifying/patching/fetching? Its doesnt have a problem doing those things... its doing what its supposed to, and after it confirms/patches/verifies the data it stops us at logging into your server.

How is that Microsoft? Just asking is all. doesnt make sense that the game allows us to connect for the PATCHES, but then says no to logging in.

I've had the same lag today, where before this the game ran fine. My vehicle takes several seconds to spawn as well. Also, during an arkfall earlier, I stopped picking up loot...and all the hellbugs just froze in their tracks. Then I noticed the timer for the arkfall wasn't running down. The server then kicked me, but I was able to log back in. After that, I was fighting some 99'ers, and they were teleporting because of lag all over the place. The server then kicked me again, but now I can't log back in....

Once the patch is installed, it automatically says that, and what it means is that it is checking for any new ones real quick, while also pulling up the current ones in your hard drive. This does not truly require XBL to be functioning to run this process, if I am not mistaken.

not to start or rather popularize a rumor but i heard through a friend that anonymous has made a threat against live for the very old news megaupload situation, i ignored it then i got a warning from a page i liked on facebook but the site wasnt one i recognized as reputable by its url (myxboxachievements or something-not saying it isnt reputable but i havent been on that site before)...seems kind of suspicious that MS employees are getting hacked right after and that servers on live are failing-which has never happened since i got this current live membership(july '12). once again its just a rumor but just wanted to put it out there.

They probably need to verify that you have an active gold account to let you connect to the servers. If they don't have that connection then their servers are defaulting to a not available state. Just speculation.

Also cannot log in:

CRITICAL
The Defiance service is not available. Please try again later.

I receive the same error on xbox. Funny this, my girlfriend is sitting right next to me on her Xbox, and she's actually playing.

:-P Thanks.

I read the earlier post you put, then looked at your pic. Started laughing because they didn't seem to go together. Great picture.

Critical error, here in WA.

I can play any game and XBL is fine for me.

I have had a lot of issues all day with defiance,

When I could call my vehicle it would spawn behind me facing the opposite direction,

I couldn't see or buy anything from vendors all day, vendors all had dissapeared on me,

scores of other things too like being in a desolate. abandoned world.

Vehicle mechanics were all glitched out, weapon fire and damage numbers were all glitched as well.

Anyways just reporting so it can get identified and fixed.

The problem is with live and it seems to be a lottery if your going to get a game. So many haters bashing Trion but at least they hold there hands up to there mistakes and gave us the boosts.

disregard my last post on this thread-it turns out the so-called anonymous member warning is linked to a false account. it looks like some anonymous fan is trying to direct credit to the organization so its basically an opportunist hoax. mb for jumping to conclusions but after my previous info including a so-called warning video i bought it.

but again i had the same issues and manually disconnecting and reconnecting from and to the live service has fixed everything for me so try that.

I agree Microsuck will never admit to anything. And Im no expert. They even shut their phone service availability down yesterday when they had their problem. All I know is I can connect to xbox live with 5 of my other xbox live games and have no problems with connecting to any servers to play anything else except "Defiance". So the question remains why can my friends connect to all their other games but this game. *shrug*

I paid $60 for a game I can't even play right now. Some people have to work during the week. Get your server going on XBL already

You should be complaining for the $60 you spent on XBox Live. This (time) has nothing to do with Defiance. COD and other online games are also down. It's completely Microsoft's authentication system flubbing up.

This - XBL seems fine for everything else, I just can't login to Defiance. Sadly more the norm than the exception.

Apparently, a group called "ChannelZeroYT" has claimed responsibility for the recent MS and XBL problems.
Here is a link to the article.

People need to leave these companies alone. There are affecting more than just the CEOs and whatnot.

I do have to applaud Trion on this. They own up to mistakes and issues, and do very well at fixing and patching said items. Also, as a concilliatory item, they give us boosts to thank us for our loyalty and as an apology for taking the time they need to fix the game. I have not seen this with many other companies.

It says "appears" which in not concrete... do you really think MS would confirm that they indeed did get hacked after what happened with Sony?

That one is more, "purchase at your own risk." They may give it back, but they are not held responsible for what occurs once you pay, per an article or clause in the contract. Also, once you pay for it, they are not required, or even liable, to give you a refund or any such thing. Hope they help you though.

I wonder if they were having these problems because they are getting servers ready for the next gen console? I know they would have to shut some servers down to this and maybe they weren't expecting as much traffic and the servers they had couldn't handle it. Just a thought.

I am on "Underground", But friends of ine on "RECREATION" can play. Not sure if this means anything, but would be very curious to see if people on "UNDERGROUND" are the ones not able to play. WOuld be a place for Microsoft to start.

I believe I'm underground too. Could be an issue with this.

Just tried again and it let me connect.

That has absolutely nothing to do with connectivity. That is letting other players know your play style if they view your Gamercard....

I think it originally had something to do with matchmaking, they've seemed to expand those options to developers now.

And I've been DC'd from xbox live again. :(

My friend is having same trouble near east but not there. I forgot to mention... I used to get the same error all the time but without shutting down the game I just tried again and got in. Happens a bunch. Do if you did not say oh man! And pound the A button over and over except on the pause screen try that! It works for me :P
