26 Orange Dodge challengers... I really hope Trion is looking to broaden the vehicle selection with DLC. As it stands right now, All the newbs at the crash site have green quads, and everyone else has orange challengers. I barely ever see another buggy. My buggy is so lonely...

I use a different vehicle for every load-out, unfortunately one is an orange charger... what can I say, I like the color orange.

Maybe they should've made all the different colors have slightly different stats... so people would have more reasons to deviate. Also, whats up with the +0 stats in the vehicle skills?

the day after i bought my orange challenger i came online and everyone had one, so i thought screw this!!!! ima work my *** of for the black one!!!!. I felt abit more unique again after i got it :)

I hope with the new DLC the vehicles cost more to buy, i found the price to low/easy to earn. and also the specials at vendors, i mean come on 500 scrip for a white challenger? you would almost feel like you cheated to get it! 50,500 scrip for something that would special sound more right to me.

The problem is the Challenger is the fastest vehicle in the game that you can buy from a vendor or get from a pre-order. In order for someone to have a different colour of Challenger they would need to do something extra hard or challenging which most people will not do.

I do agree though. There needs to be some variety for high end Rollers. Heck I would like to see a glass speed version of a Runner to help add to that variety. I would only use a Runner now to level it up. Compared to Rollers Runners are quite inferior stat wise.

I guess the see me rolli, they hatin. The issue, is that 70% of gamers are casual, and what do casual gamers do? Take the path of least resistance to get the best stuff. Hence, why everyone and their mother has an orange Challenger right now. God forbid the game give them a challenge to get a different color. GOLD medal on a race? Pfffft, F that! I can't be bothered! Instant gratification and all that jazz. Like it or not, a large chunk of the money does come from them, they're also the reason our games have gotten so dumbed down in the past years. All I'm doing is making an observation. I've seen far to many games, where after the first two weeks, everyone has "A" gun, "B" armor, and "C" mount. They use them twice, get bored, and sell the game to make glue. Next thing you know, the servers are looking pretty empty, the company thinks they did something wrong, pulls out, shut downs their servers, and we're left with a dead game. But hey, at least EA doesn't have Trion Worlds, right? Oh, and another example of the above, I played a few Shadow wars and death matches. ALL of the games where shotgun/infiltrator only. That's not fun at all, only efficient.

eh, ya have to actually find the vendor to buy the Orange Challenger...these are the same people that call it at Charger thinking they're the Duke Boys sadly they're just a poor imiatation ..... they're like the Coys and Vances of the Defiance World.

I have a red one and an orange one yet i drive my Black n Gold Hannibal 96% of the time. I'll work on the Black Challenger when i feel like grinding out all of the races.

Rofl, I had that same thought. I'm hoping Trion will make more vehicles/colors more appealing. There's how many colors of buggies awaiting to be bought? Yet everyone buys the one color of Challenger that's readily available. I figured a buggy with a turbine all Mad Max'd out would be appealing to a lot of people. Apparently not.

It seems just even the color of vehicles isn't enough for some people, they want this, they want that, what I say is if you want something then go and do it yourself, I'd love to see them try.

I know it's a bit off topic but do you know what I've seen recently in these forums? the amount of people claiming to be ''EX Game Programmers' and how 'easy' it is to make certain changes. At one point I even seen a comment made from someone claiming to be a representative with Microsoft and even EPIC games, however the attitude and grammar for that individual was lacking and for some reason I just didn't believe a word in that comment.

As someone who grew up messing with game code, and am currently studying to be a programer. I can say, nothing about making a change in a game is easy. An analogy, try removing a single NON sticky strand from the inner most circle of a small spider's web without damaging the rest of the web, while wearing a pair of heavy leatherman gloves. Good luck even identifying which strands are the non sticky ones from a glance! It's gonna be a long and tiring process. Why do people think it takes years to make a game? Hell, even CoD, a game in which most of the work is done for them, they just have to make a few new maps and update a visual here and there, still takes them 2 years. (Two different companies work on the CoD series, they release a new game annually together)

Stats wise ya, but if you're rising around and you see a black challenger roll up, you will want that.

In the end its a mount, something to get around. Like you said casuals want the OP weapons and cars. So give it to them, they are a casual gamer so they probably wouldn't put in the time to grind for the epic gear. They will now stick around longer because they can worry about shooting and blowing things up, rather than to get a mount that is SLIGHTLY faster.

They will leave anyway. After you have 10+ vehicles isn't it a cosmetic choice for you?

SIDE NOTE: I was under the impression the Challenger was a pre order bonus only?

Grit
04-15-2013, 09:24 AM
Red Challenger was the pre-order. Orange is from a vendor that only shows up now and again. one of the 3 hidden ones. that's how i bought mine... did a mission.. saw some different colored vehicles for sale that i haven't seen elsewhere so i bought em.

anytime i see a vehicle special for $500 i buy it. now and again if i feel like wasting scrip i'll buy one at full price...

they're like pokemon, i want them all!!

I had a black one for a while, (A sale one, had no idea they cost like 10,500 normally (O_O) ) but I just love hill climbing in the buggy more. Not to mention, a giant turbine attached to my car? Forget about it! Speaking of which, totally random memory, when I first started playing, like, my second Arkfall, there was a huge convoy of a few buggies, a few quads, a challenger, and one those big trucks you get in Cass' mission, all different colors too. It was glorious looking, and what I expected Defiance to be. I haven't seen that at all since that day.

Ugh. These people obviously haven't found vendors. Apparently, some of you haven't either. I preordered, so I got the red challenger. Nonetheless, get gold in all races and you'll get a black one. The orange challengers are normally people who like orange or children that just want a cool car, but they were too young to preorder. I also have two Hannibals. I believe just playing the game gives you a black and green one. I found a white and red one from a weapons vendor as a special item. I also have two of the quads. One is red, and the other is black, I think. They came from either ark codes, preordering the legendary, or early story. I apologize that everyone wants the same car. That's called demand.

If you are studying programming then you should be aware of SQL Data bases and queries and how easy it is if you know how to do them to make changes to data code , a "seasoned" programmer wouldn't have much trouble changing certain things in game, more a matter of time doing it.

It would be nice if they brought the Cerberus into PvE and make it a boss drop with a .07% drop rating or sell it at a vendor fo 1.5m scrip. I would also like it if they gave us some of the vehicles just sitting around the map, like do this pursuit and get the raider buggies or do this pursuit and get the flatbed trucks, and finish this pursuit and get that DM personel carrier.

Same thing for my costume. Well I'm waiting for the other version to get in the Defiance store but if I see lots of people wearing it...

Hilarious. I stopped using the pre-order Red since everyone had one. I got the Plum Crazy from a vendor and I was happy to separate myself from that crowd, but I eventually bought (and don't use) the Orange. If you have the Black, job well done, but I'm seeing a lot more of them already.

I was also in a Arkfall when all of a sudden a Hulker came to the rescue and smashed the dang Mature Hellion. We had a bunch of people focusing on other things and I don't know if someone ran passed him and brought him to the party or if he was just hanging out waiting for some action. Regardless was the best part of my morning since I deal no damage anymore during arkfalls. Just thought I would share.

I would love to see a real world vehicle that is not a 2013 model Dodge vehicle. As a muscle car owner and enthusiast, I think the new Dodge 'muscle car imitations' are crap. I leave them at stoplights regularly in my 1973 GMC Sprint with custom engine. I wanna see some REAL Mad Max cars in this game, like beat up Subaru Brats and Bronco IIs with turrets in the back. The kind of stuff in the future parts of the Terminator movies.

I've still got my standard 'red' pre-order Dodge and am happy to stick with that and a decent quad! Not too bothered about the colour as long as it gets me from A - B.

However if we are talking about vehicles (usually a Dodge or Buggy) at Arkfall events ....... Oh how I wish people would stop just driving around in circles using them to hit bugs!
