Is anyone else getting a " Your connection to the defiance server has timed out", then another error "the defiance server is not available ".... I can connect to the character screen, I just had a new modem installed and not sure if it is me or not because everything else seems to be working fine

The server appears down. I am getting the same error after I exited a death match. I am now unable to log back in and have been unable too for over 10 minutes.

Yep. Logged on, had just enough time to put on my new red armor, saw it was laggy, so logged out. And then couldn't get back in.

I'm not one to b*tch about things, kind of serves no point to do so on a forum like this. However, I will say I'm a bit annoyed that the connectivity issues are happening and it's been at least 15 minutes and not a word from devs or forum monitors to indicate they're even aware of the problem. /sigh

Defiance Twitter feed has a post from 15 minutes ago about being aware of server issues. It'd be nice if the server status section actually reflected server status.

Meh, being a new game and given the size and genre on a console...im not too stressed about it. I do agree with the twitter/server status comment however

Yeah, the Devs all own Twitter stock I think....

Nice, they put it out on Twitter only? What about those of us that don't like twitter, hell I have a hard time posting things on FB. I only put up things that I feel are worth it, don't want to know about someone who just sneezed. You'd think they'd take the minute or two to post the information here. Not to mention real time server status information.

i think its bec of new event "MOST WANTED CONTEST" where they will make a life like image of you and put it on the game/show and players like me would want to try to win it and so does the other thousand of players. and im guessing servers just crash or you crash base on your internet speed connection. imo. if not that then TRION needs to do something. anything. maybe Free boost for everyone?

Trion, do you want me to let the monkeys out? Cause I'll let the monkeys out!

Yeah this happened right after a major Arkfall was completed, the list for the results even glitched.

the server seem packed before it disconnected me. people everywhere, arkfalls were so laggy from the amounts. my guess has something to do with that... too many people.

At this point any kind of consistent server stability would be completely strange and bizarre. Trion has lowered the bar for MMOGs.

What I find more odd is that Trion Worlds doesn't seem aware, or if they are aware, they don't seem to care. Official server status threads haven't been updated in hours. At last update, they were up.

Right that's what I'm saying. I'm looking at my XMB thinking well great he's playing but I'm not. Thanks Trion servers.

Hey Everyone, I'm not sure if this has been added to the "connection timed out" threads or not, but this is what I have learned thus far. Despite what has been posted about this being a "hardware issue," it in fact appears to be a software issue. My son was not able to continue past the first "mission" because of the "connection to Defiance server has timed out" error. His character was stuck behind a wall of which he was apparently supposed to be on the other side. Here is what my he did to resolve this problem with the help of someone in tech support. I have no idea why this fixes the problem, but I hope that it helps some of you also.

To clear the system cache

1. Press the Guide button on your controller, go to” Settings” and select “System Settings.”
2. Select Storage or Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller. (It doesn't matter which storage device you select; the cache will be cleared for all storage devices.)
4. Select “Clear System Cache.”
5. When prompted to confirm storage device maintenance, select “Yes.”

Set the time and date

1. Press the Guide button on your controller for a couple seconds, then release.
2. Press X to sign out of Xbox Live, then press the A button to confirm.
3. Press the Guide button on your controller again, then go to “Settings” and select “System Settings.”
4. Select “Console Settings.”
5. Select “Clock.”
6. Change the date on your Xbox 360 to 11/15/2005.

After changing the date, please restart your Xbox. When the system restarts, try Defiance again. You will be prompted to download game updates, so go ahead and do this.

Best,
Evangelon
