    Very interesting.

    What kind of bird is that Puffkin?
    I've heard that Defiance is substantially smoother now with less employees "running" the servers:

    I've also overheard Ark-hunters speaking German lately..

    It appears that synergies are progressing exactly as I thought they would ever since Trion decided to turn the game into a 24/7 event kegger. With revenue now completely reliant on the flavor of the month event synergy the only way to sell boxes, bundles, and passes is to release synergies that are slightly better than the previous generation. The synergies released in the past year have made all of the standard and faction synergies obsolete and it has done the same for most of the past event and bit store synergies as well. And it's going to continue with each successive generation (about every 3-6 months) until they finally pull the plug.

    A friend of mine created the following thread to illustrate a different point, but I believe that it's only a matter of time before we see this:

    Was saying a similar thing in game the other day. Each new synergy is designed to gradually push older synergies into obsolescence. The new synergies have to have a certain level of appeal in order to get players to go after them. So this is a natural consequence of the event train we are on…

    We will eventually get weapons will all nanos and all EGO powers combined, reaching god-mode for the final Defiance Armageddon!
