    Redesign PC UI

    They are making some changes to the PC specific UI, but when there is a game for 3 platforms there is an efficency factor that they have to pay attention to. They will be slowly adding some more PC specific settings and changes, but not a sweeping full UI change just for PC.

    So this translates to:

    "PC is the least important platform for us".

    Great.

    Something here feels horribly wrong.

    Perhaps, we don't get to see the numbers there might be far higher amount of console players and so it makes sense to focus on them, that said they probably wouldn't have lost some players if the UI was improved.

    I am glad it is on their radar, and can understand that maintaining two different systems would be a waste of resources at this time. Looking forward to the updates whatever they are.

    Great job Etaew - thanks for the recap. Not sure about the answer to the question about an auction house though, seems like when asked about banks and auction houses they said "probably not" to banks and ignored the auction house part of the question?

    In all though, they did a fair job of giving us a look at their future plans.

    The one that actually bothers me the most is this:

    Why did you remove weapons from the new Raptor vehicle?

    Firing weapons from vehicles we think are really cool. I don't remember us making a change there, there was never a turret there.

    I do recall watching a couple of different videos from E3 and SDCC where it was said that the Raptor was going to have a turret on it and that it was going to be a PvE/PvP vehicle.

    Etaew - Great work as always, Thank You!

    Yep, I remember them saying that too. Otherwise why would it be a truck of doom or whatever, if it is just a transport with no offensive capabilities.

    I doubt PC will get any love in the near future, but one would think that if they wanted to game to last, they would focus on the PC aspect.

    With the new consoles on the horizon, and those consoles not being backwards compatible, PC users would not be the ones jumping ship. Of course, the game is abysmal for many PC users, as it is basically a bug filled 10 year old game as the specifications the game is built on is for the 10 year old consoles.

    They would basically have to rewrite the code from scratch to get the majority of PC players back, or new players to stay, and they have a hard enough job fixing something without breaking 5 other things.

    So instead they will focus on dangling the carrot in front of console users in hopes of milking microtransactions as fast as they can, knowing they only have a limited amount of time before the console users start jumping ship to the new consoles.

    What I heard was what I have heard since the game released. A bunch of things in the pipe, no real times anything will be improved, etc etc, just from new voices.

    I honestly can not believe people get all excited chasing the carrot from a team which has a track record for disappointment. Reminds me of a dog that is so desperate for attention that a person can kick it repeatedly and it will still come when called. Trion has done nothing to deserve the loyalty for Defiance, and everything to show that if there is any way at all to mess things up, they will do it.
