I have only spent twenty minutes playing before the server went down. But I like a lot of the positive attitudes I see, even with the server down. I'm going to try and enjoy this despite all the negative comments.

right on friend! and Welcome to Defiance!
yeah a bad day to just be joining indeed.
the good news is the servers will come back up.. the problem is when.
hang in there, the game is a whole lot more fun with headset chat finally working (most of the time)

I bought the game last night but havent gotten to play it yet due to server issues, just finished the first 3 episodes of the show also. The show is great, way better than what I thought it was going to be and I am really into it so that will make me want to play the game even more. While I have heard alot of negative things about the game, from the few videos I watched it basically looks like Borderlands:Defiance Edition, which I have absolutely no problem with especially if it adds some MMO elements xD

It's very fun and IMO worth the $ spent. Gets frustrating at times though.

It really is a fun game. While the servers are down, browse through the clan recruitment forum and find one. Having an extra shooter by your side really makes the missions shine. Then make a Trion account and put in the 120 arkfall codes!

My condolences for missing out on the prelude episode missions. You didn't miss much with the episode pursuits that they replaced them with though.

The negative comments at this point is mostly pointed at trion, the game itself is actually very enjoyable despite there being alot of annoying bugs (especially if you enjoy pvp).

Ive had the game now for about 4 days and im hooked. The beggining was a little slow but it picks up fast.. Stick it out, this is the first time the servers have shut down for me (other then scheduled resets) Im sure you will enjoy it :D

Good for you. I waited till after the first episode aired on TV before deciding to buy it myself. I liked the show and have been having a blast playing the game. I get that a lot of people are unhappy. But for the most part I am having to much fun to care.

The game is quite fun, if you've enjoyed what little you played so far you'll be hooked, however alot of the "Negative" comments you see are from people who are just plain pissed off over ridiculous patches that are outright disastrous, others are angry because "boosts" they paid for are still ticking by while they can't even log on because the servers are still down I think it's been three hours since they've been down and that's a three hour loss on any boosts, reason enough to be pissed.

This person has a good point for what you can do IF you haven't already.

Ignore the negatives. Downtime is frustrating to everyone. They are just voicing it here, they are entitled. I have played since early beta and, for the most part, am loving it. I wish management was a bit more communicative though :(

Yeah it's been years since I last saw the show. I was going to do Vash, but Ryan was open by some chance.

That. Trion made a name for itself with Rift. There's a solid reason why, two years after launch, that game is the only remaining subscription-only MMO next to WoW, when all others have been forced to go F2P just to survive (and too often within the first year of launch).

The team working on Defiance? As I've told my friends and family that I finally convinced to jump to Rift last week: The Defiance team is like a subsidiary of SOE, and not what we should expect from Trion.

There are a few things to consider OP when playing this game.

- Expect this game to have flaws. It's a new launch MMO and it WILL HAVE PROBLEMS and i have some amazing Peanut butter cookies. Want some?

- If your going to suggest feedback to Trion, please do it in an easy fashion and don't just lash out and tell TRION they suck or anything rude like that. Be nice about your Negative feedback. Cookies are amazing man, seriously try them.

- Just enjoy it man, think positive and all the awesome stuff and features this game will get later on down the road. Sorry no more cookies.

As Always DEFIANCE

It's good to know there's some people that remember Trigun. It's the only anime I've ever really watched.
I remember Dexter's lab lol, watched it as a kid.
