Watched the show and decided to give the game a shot...

Hope it comes up before midnight.

I'd like to actually make a character :)

Your optimism is so funny. Wait until you go a few rounds on stuff like this and you wouldn't bother staying up until Midnight.

I think what happened, is they never tested the new Client Update and Server Update together... that is the only thing I can think of. If it was just a server thing, they could roll that back and then be fine... keep people playing and have "patch" release once patch actually ready (wouldn't that be nice?).

Of course I had to leave work early and download it.. so yeah, kind of a wasted day. I say midnight but I'll be asleep in less than an hour. If it isn't up by tomorrow morning I'll just get my money back from steam. But it would be fun to support the show anyway...

Is it me or do others find it funny that they're patching a patch right now.

You might try checking back on Monday. It's more likely to be that long with their track record.

Even if it's just a server thing, the bug may be so deep they need to restore the game/application to it's old state on all databases and servers, get the fix into the patching process then repatch everything again. All said and done, 9-12 hours total (including the original deployment) isn't unheard of since the first estimate they gave was 4 hours.

Working at an IT/Software design company, it happens more often then it should.

Yeah, well it's not prolly gonna get any better. If they're current track record is any indicator. Hope ya like PvP shooters, cause that what Defiance is.

I work in IT too with devs and yes bugs exist but we don't break something every launch.

Yeah it's a nice feeling to have. I admit this game has had some issues since day one. But I still get this fuzzy feeling when I play!

Funny thing when I went to steam it was on sale, so figured "Great timing"! Of course that was at 3pm Eastern when I started to download it lol.

Oh well, maybe someday!
