View Full Version : American Defiance WAS: Prepatch Day youtube anthem

...Someone on another thread was asking for a Defiance version of a Youtube song called "Prepatch Day", which bemoaned the usual (?) problems associated with large MMORPG patches. it was sung to the tune of "yesterday" by the Beatles. In SF convention circles this is known as Filking, and the product, a filk song.

So I'm half asleep, thinking about this and some other Filksongs I've done...and the following comes to life. Enjoy, make a youtube video if you like, as long as I get credit for the lyrics. :cool:

American Defiance, by "Kayty"
Song: American Pie by Don Mclean

Not a real long time ago
I recall with pleasure how those Arkfalls used to make me smile
And I knew that with shotguns fat
that I could make Hellbugs go splat
and that would make me happy for awhile

But Trion Worlds they made me quiver
with every patch they did deliver
though I downloaded quick and punctual,
those servers remained quite nonfunctional !

And though we raged on in the forums
wargamers all, more than a quorum
it should have come as no surprise
Just more, of Trion's lies.

It's sad to see a game die a-borning
it's just about as bad as botched terraforming
as we sit around on Teamspeak eating bon-bons with Coke
are the servers up yet--tell me so
Have they fixed that patch yet, what a joke....
