I have to say that this is the WORST game I have ever played as far as playability issues. I have had this game since day one and have had nothing but problems as far as being able to get on and actually play the game.

For instance, over this past weekend the longest I was able to play at one time without getting kicked off was about 1/2 hour. Usually it was more like 5-10 minutes and I would get a Critical error message that the Defiance servers were unavailable.

I have been in constant contact with TRION support about the issues with little to no change (actually the playability over this past weekend was the worst it's ever been). I have tried all their "fixes" and nothing has worked.

If you are thinking about purchasing this game, think again, unless you are willing to put time into a game that is pretty much worthless and was not ready for release.

I would advise waiting until after the game leaves Beta.
It has a lot of potential, but it's currently not worth the gas money I spent on the way to the store... >_>

I've also had this game since day one.

For the first week they had the servers down almost every night for an hour or so to do some minor fixes etc. Otherwise, i've had no problems connecting or getting into games and generally find lag/performance etc has improved.

So,
You're either unlucky
OR
I'm lucky
OR
There's a troll somewhere on this topic.

I'm not having the same issue on my end. What has support suggested so far? When I first got the game I had to go through the standard set of port forwarding setting on my router.

I have to agree with above post, You should really check your IPS. The members in my clan also experianced that problem on the first week, but ever since those new patches rolled out. They've been able to stay connected, with a few minor hiccups. But nothing changing a shard/Server fixes that issue.

I don't understand what you're talking about. I got this game last week and have had absolutely NO issues running it. I played 4 hours straight last night without a single hitch. Maybe you have a bad install or your connection's a bit spotty, but I personally have not had a single problem staying in game or getting DC'ed. If it is on xbox or Trion's side I do hope they are doing what they can to help you, but telling people just to plain not buy the game is a bit uncalled for when it is not a universal game problem but a personal one. As far as development "fixes", as with any online game nowadays, of course we are playing an unfinished product. Patches, add-ons, and expansions are now the norm for gaming and now that MMO's are coming to console, us console gamers have to learn the patience of the PC gamers and realize that the game can...and will improve. Telling people not to buy the game is counter productive to this, I personally want more people to buy it and watch the show because that insures that there will be future content and developments. If you want a growing game to get better then give feedback ( you can do this here or use the feature in game) and encourage others to play and give their feedback.
As far as fixing issues, like I said, console gamers now need to get used to the facts that we are now in an evolving games age where that title we get off the shelf is not a final product, but pretty much just the basic game features. Patches, fixes, add-ons, and expansions are a game's growth now. If you want to just "play to beat it" then maybe an MMO title is not the best choice for you.

This weekend i was only kicked off once and that was during a shadow war when i picked to spawn in the vehicle thing. You must just have real crappy luck. My buds who played about the same duration as I did never had a disconnect. That's not to say we didn't have other flaky stuff going on but I was the only one who got disconnected and that happened just the once.

Seriously??? Been playing since day 1, EU XBOX 360 server, very few problems at all...

Occasionaly bit of lag but to be expected in an MMO.

dont take to much notice of this thread ive had the game 3 weeks have a ok ish broadband connection and i have had very few issues with the eu server, just remember when your buying this game your not buying some typical console game you are buying a MMO which always improve and perfect with time, as mmos are developed as they are played acording to player feedback. so buy and enjoy

As far as people being nice and working together in game...as a veteran pc mmo player I can verify that in general console gamers are not at all used to playing well with others on a large scale, seeing as before you may have 2-10 xbox players on party chat playing halo, now you have possibly hundreds who can talk to each other and work together. Kinda like taking a home schooled kid and throwing them in a public school lunch room.

I love the game as well but you guys have got to be kidding as far as no DC or bugs in game. There are huge bugs still in and there are also several other things to be fixed. I have a newer (kinect generation) xbox and I pay extra for a doublewide connection. Yet I can't even start Nim mission or it freezes or a few other Co-op missions. Random NPC voices in my ear and other things that seriously hinder the fun factor for me.

I have read other post on this forum and other indicating that it is not only my setup but many that have same exact problem. I could guess but I don't know why it doesnt effect all, however there are quite a few of us with these issues.

That said I am hopeful todays patch will fix most. Though I was more hopeful in the beginning when I posted a support ticket about lost money in a trade for ms points to bits over 2 weeks ago and no response. Not exactly a confidence builder.

OP sounds like the standard issue of poppy ISP service or poorly configured network.

been playing since day 1. 1550 or so ego had the same issues as everyone else with patches and then some. But honestly, never seen it disconnect every 5 min and that's running two Xbox on defiance on the same connection along with two pcs that always run. Nothing to superb about our net either... So your ah, pretty sure the servers are rather stable. But bugs to happen in mmos... Lots of crossing systems to get confused.

worth the $0 monthly fee? Of course
worth $30 gamestop offered me? You can pry the disc from my cold dead fingers.

Darth Sully

I had issues the first week of the release and the other occasional bugs but other than that its been good. I am seeing lots of people complain about connecting issues maybe its not the game but the internet provider you ate using. Also I would encourage people to not use wireless but to actually use a ethernet cable my friend did this and it made a ton of difference. To think houses these days have laptop, computers, tablets, phones and gaming consoles hooked to the same internet which I would assume would slow it down.

I do agree that being new there have been issues for sure. But, after the recent patches I rarely have any issues, able to stay logged in for hours at a time.

if I ever receive a 'critical error' and get disconnected, I exit out of the game completely, and load it up from start, allow patching, and usually evenything is fine. What I did find was if I received a crit error, but just logged in, I would get the error again 5-10mins later. Shutting the game down and restarting it cleared the errors.

I've done the cache clearing once before when I had issue with Borderlands 2. Have you tried that yet? Never heard of the date change deal, I would almost say a full game re-install instead of trying that.

probably your garbage internet man, mine works fine except for the ODD booting off (and I jump right back in)

Buy somthing better then a 5sp connection.

I would be more sympathetic if your post wasnt so idiotic...


"DO NOY BUY THIS GAME!!!" as your title kind of writes off anything usefull you have to say, which prob aint all that much.

The game is fun, I am enjoying the hell out of it still. It has SOME issues, but playability has been fixed for everyone (everyone I know anyway)

Dave Blackwell
04-29-2013, 09:16 AM
I suspect these issues more or less are due to your network etc. as I, like many others no doubt, have had hardly any of these issues with the game. Honestly, you should have anticipated problems with a game similar to this due to the sheer scope and overall concept of it tying in with a TV show and what not.

As for discouraging others to give the game a try because of your own misfortune (and by the sounds of it, bad luck) I'd have to disagree with that. These issues seem to be for a minority as I don't see much drop in activity any time I'm playing Defiance, but I am sure I'm not the only one who's aware that the minority is the most vocal while those enjoying the game pay close to no attention to the forums or threads like this in general.

You also have to take into consideration that Trion are not robots, but people. They cannot spend one day and then fix every single issue that is and could be wrong with the game, instead they're gradually working their way through these bugs with each patch. Now, I suspect someone will call this one out. Patches and bug fixes can be applied to intentionally fix whatever the issues are, however, newer bugs and issues cannot necessarily be anticipated and for this reason this is why what happens does. One more thing; certain bugs take priority over others.

I seem to find myself repeating this line with each thread similar to this: Patience is a virtue that seems to be non existent in some.


Not a problem with internet, have good internet and no problems with any other games

For the fact you claim to have a perfect connection/network I'm finding it hard to believe that you would have disconnection issues. That or you have too many devices connected to the network during the time that you're playing the game as this will, obviously, slow down the connection as it'll be splayed out to other devices at the same time. You should also be aware that this isn't a typical online game with under 30 players in one game at any given time, the comparison is a bit steep but it is what it is.

Well, that's my piece. Make of it what you will.

I get kicked every other game in COD. Deal with it. Ask for something actually needed Like DLC hint hint.

Have you tried removing the game from your Xbox's drive + clear cache + full re-install?
That would remove any strange inconsistant installation issue, and pretty much narrow down the network being the issue. Are you using wireless to the xbox? If yes, are there other networks around you? If yes, try changing your wireless channel up a few. Are your ports forwarded in your router according to Microsoft Xbox requirements?

IMO this game is a lot of fun. Yeah, I have run into a few small bugs here and there, but nothing earth-shattering. I have not had any issue running defiance on my 360, and I am glad my friends told me to buy it. This game is a blast. On the other hand, if you have a Walmart connection I can see where someone could have issues, as with any MMO.

Good question. Mine is modem. Router will give you issues. I don't call it dedicated unless it's to a modem. Because a router by definition isn't dedicated, it's made to split up bandwidth.

If you are still having issues with connectivity, it's you not Trion. I have not had any issues with the game since the first big patch.

I would advise waiting until after the game leaves Beta.
It has a lot of potential, but it's currently not worth the gas money I spent on the way to the store... >_>

How do you say that after having 733 posts. This game has taken more then your gas money, it has stolen your time. Holy cow why do people complain they hate the game and are so active in the community.

I'll say this much for sure... I've had less issues with this game in the first six days that I've had it compared to how many issues I had with DCUO in the first six days that I owned that game.

In my humble opinion, that's a HUGE win for this game. Especially considering the fact that I'm playing it on the antiquated Xbox 360.

Correction... "Do noy read this post"

Don't understand how hard it is to check your spelling especially if your trying to gain attention...

Longest I played this game was yesterday about 12 hours off and on lol. Haven't had any major issues so I recommend this game for anyone that loves to shoot things!

I played this game every night for a number of straight hours and haven't had any issues and I go every where I can in pve and all the pvp maps. Might not be the xbox 360 version but rather that wifi connection you steal instead of having your own connection..Just a thought. ;)

I love the game as well but you guys have got to be kidding as far as no DC or bugs in game. There are huge bugs still in and there are also several other things to be fixed. I have a newer (kinect generation) xbox and I pay extra for a doublewide connection. Yet I can't even start Nim mission or it freezes or a few other Co-op missions. Random NPC voices in my ear and other things that seriously hinder the fun factor for me.

I have read other post on this forum and other indicating that it is not only my setup but many that have same exact problem. I could guess but I don't know why it doesnt effect all, however there are quite a few of us with these issues.

That said I am hopeful todays patch will fix most. Though I was more hopeful in the beginning when I posted a support ticket about lost money in a trade for ms points to bits over 2 weeks ago and no response. Not exactly a confidence builder.

I've had the game for just over a week now and have finished the main story line and a few ark falls. But I haven't had any DC's or glitches. The only time I've not been able to play is when they bring the servers down on purpose, but they definitely give you fair warning before that happens with the happy yellow text. Other than the server downtime, I've had zero issues with the game at all.

Try connecting the Xbox directly to the modem and not the router. Just for a test. It's one thing to look at in the process of eliminating the possibilities. If it works fine that way then maybe you need to check out port forwarding or maybe even need a new router.

I have to say that this is the WORST game I have ever played as far as playability issues. I have had this game since day one and have had nothing but problems as far as being able to get on and actually play the game.

For instance, over this past weekend the longest I was able to play at one time without getting kicked off was about 1/2 hour. Usually it was more like 5-10 minutes and I would get a Critical error message that the Defiance servers were unavailable.

I have been in constant contact with TRION support about the issues with little to no change (actually the playability over this past weekend was the worst it's ever been). I have tried all their "fixes" and nothing has worked.

If you are thinking about purchasing this game, think again, unless you are willing to put time into a game that is pretty much worthless and was not ready for release.

This game is Better than CoD. wait it out. look at happy wars that was unplayaible but now it's running smooth. GIVE IT TIME!

I play on xbox and actually have had far worse problems in a lot of other games than any I've had in this. If I had believed what some people were saying, I never would have gotten it. I've had a few bouts of this-the message that the connection timed out or something like that, but I start again and I'm on unless the servers are down.

I'm no apologist and it only makes sense for this stuff to work, but it's also a reality that in this game there are far more people playing it online together at any one time than in other games-and those games have far worse issues than this one, in my experience. I'm sorry you are having problems.
