    Lack of events.

    I don't get to play as much as I used to or frequent the forums, so I might have missed something.

    Has something happened to the event scheduler?

    When I do play I notice a lot of time between events, with almost nothing going on. It used to be Arkfalls, Sieges and Incursions running all over the place. Sure Incursions and Arkfalls would collided at times causing them to stop. But there was always another event to jump to.

    I can't remember the last time I saw a hellbug major Arkfall.

    The spawn rate has seen a little low lately though, I'm not sure what could be causing these problems.

    It was nerfed on purpose. They felt that overcrowding the world with constant events caused some of the lag and freeze/crash issues. So they lowered the number of events we see at one time, as well as how often they spawn.

    Well that's disappointing to here. I much preferred the overcrowded feel.

    Agreed. I loved having to decide what to do. Now I just wander until I happen upon something.

    Shouldn't you have a comma or 2 in that last sentence?

    If nothing much is happening it sometimes helps to "go to clanmate" to jump shards and see if anything is happening on that one. Sometimes doing that drops you right into a major arkfall or other action too.

    Yeah, the game used to get me hooked much more when there were a lot of events happening all the time, some of them are rarer than the others (or the server just hates me, but i rarely see chinatown siege or kenn farm siege anymore, maybe one of them every 10 of the others, and they usually are 1 afflicted siege every 3 volge sieges)

    Still, there are an awful lot of road emergencies everywhere what basically no one seem to care for anything except avoiding them while running our vehicles, maybe reducing them instead of the major events would have the same effect lag wise. Just a thought.

    Yeah,the emergencies need more rewards if they expect us to have any interest in them.Also,I actually see alot more afflicted sieges than Volge sieges for some reason(a 4/1 ratio to be precise).
    Defiance is gone. Gamigo has been "not neglecting" the game for over a year, yet there's nothing new except for low effort arkfalls and bitshop items.
    I know it might be hard to quit a game you loved for years but you have to understand that it won't get better. Ever. If you like the game in it's current state, then sure, keep playing it. You're enjoying yourself after all. But if you aren't, don't hope for a better future for Defiance. Because it won't come.
