the day isn't over yet and they always patch in the middle of the day for some reason.

Original message they said was on or around the 15th maybe little earlier, maybe a little later depends how it went.

Well the servers just went down for 10 minutes. I don't know if the patch is being applied "now" but they are certainly working on things.

Client patches are difficult beasts to handle. Small with isolated fixes can be deployed somewhat rapidly but if they are serious client patches, like srsly serious, it’s a huge effort. One of those is scheduled to hit Monday or Tuesday for PC and XBOX 360 and as soon as possible for PlayStation 3 following that (it’s logistics, I can’t change it). We’ve been doing our best to get it into your hands as soon as possible, therefore the discrepancy.

Monday or Tuesday it says.

At the very least they should say something. Nothing is worse than being kept in the dark by a ****ty dev team.

They seem pretty good about communicating once they know. Finding the communication can be tricky, such as when the servers first went live, and the only dev confirmation was a cryptic tweet from Lance (myll_eric).

I suspect on this patch, we'll get something from Sledge as soon as the developers actually tell him. He's pretty good about reading and responding to the client-base.

From the notes here on the forum it appears this is just a restart. The actual patch will not occur yet. I can't find any info on what day the patch will take place. The only information I find puts it happening somewhere in this week. :confused: But I wouldn't count on it.

Also, no word on when regional lock will be removed (if ever). As many of you know there's currently no way to play with anyone from another region (ie. US play with UK or EU). :p :(

FRUSTRATING! :mad:

I wouldn't risk a patch on the series launch day, first thing tomorrow would be more optimal.

As for the episode mission(s) that should be incoming after the show airs, they may not need to initiate any patching or server outages, it might just require activating/spawning the NPC the same way the "random" events are triggered

PC can, you just need to login to the same server, but your latency wouldn't be very good.

I have a feeling it would come after the show airs...

ok.... dude...

Bug fixes should be patch'ed right away and not waited on. I dont like game companys went with the idea of doing major patches that take like 2-4 weeks to give to the people that has been happening for years now if video game company's had beta testers to start and not used there customers for free labor finding there bugs for them we wouldn't have issues like these for any video game release if you asked me iv beta tested alot of games over my years and even the bugs i have told the devs about do not even get patched soon. iv reported about 10 bugs ingame to the devs. Just like other games and server lag and such they dont add servers because it costs alot of money so they have enough and they release statements saying we didnt expect this much people playing our game even though thats a lie look at the other guys new release of that city building game they knew ppl where going to play there have access to game sales like all other video game company's do.

Patch has been delayed until further notice. Has been posted on twitter a short while ago by Sledgehammer.

A delay was NOT confirmed.

Tuesday by trion's time, which is currently 12:47pm Monday, hasn't passed yet.

If they say today that the date is unknown currently, then it's highly likely it won't be tomorrow either.
Otherwise he would have said somewhere tomorrow. I mean... you pretty much know the day before if you going to release the patch tomorrow.

The fact that he clearly says that a date is currently unknown... smells like delay to me.

patch was scheduled for today/tomorrow, so a "new date" isn't needed

another patch in 2 weeks, and DLC after that at some point, a few weeks to a month IIRC, however new episode missions should be available after each episode airs.

There seems to of been a small patch as there is a new section under pursuit called episodes.

I agree I could play with them on a PC. However, I'm on XBOX. I've stated that in other posts but not on this thread. My apologies about that clarification. That said, I love the game. I just want to be able to play with my friends in the UK since many of my group/clan are there.

It seemed a bit fast for them to put up preliminary patch notes and then patch less than a week later. It's probably a little ways off still.

Yeah, see that now. Not sure what, if anything will ever happen with that, but the problem here would be latency, and M$ QA probably thinks it'll be too high, so unless they can get an incredibly fast IP bridge between the two, not sure how they'd resolve it.

How does M$ know what region you're in, is it in the firmware/physical copy, or do they base it on the IP address? Wonder if you can spoof a location if it's the latter. Wouldn't recommend doing that, of course, as i'm sure that's an EULA violation

Which patch is this you guys are talking about? 1.010?

Honestly, I really like Trion's staff as a general rule. Give them some time to settle most the issues you're having with Defiance and I'm sure you'll like them. Assuming you're patient enough to give them that time, which most people seem to not want to do.

Then back to the same as the language out. And say what phase. Always such silly talk and false promises. The catch exactly the same crap like Battlefield. Much Bla bla. I'm looking forward to the ****storm
