    Trion needs to get a clue

    So here I am trying to play Defiance and I'm dealing with insane lag and disconnects galore. Is this a symptom of Trion stealing server resources to stand up the 2050 Beta or is this just a snapshot of the things to come when 2050 goes live?? You'd think that Trion would do everything they can to keep people interested in Defiance / Defiance 2050, but alienating their loyal players (some of us who have been here since it was pay-to-play) would be the height of folly. To any Devs that read this, I implore you to take a hard look at how you are rolling out this 2050. If the current Defiance turns to crap you will disgust people and no one will hang around for 2050 nor will they come back since most will just expect 2050 to behave like the current Defiance which is laggy with lots of disconnects.

    Fix this or you'll lose so many people it won't even be worth rolling out 2050.

    Well i mean, 2050 looks sketchy for the first year or two after release as it is. I mean, it's been promoted as essentially Defiance, but with less content and not much of importance carries over, right? So i mean, that alone will give it a slow start. I mean, to me it seems more like a new server, with emphasis on free content, but overall it's essentially a reset. Again, that's just how it comes across to me. Long term, i hold hopes, but short term it's sketchy.

    Trion has replied in the forums, they are not taking server resources from the original Defiance for Defiance 2050. Lags and Disconnections have plagued the game from its inception. The game was rushed into production to launch at the same time as the TV show. Additionally, it was launched on two consoles (PS3 and Xbox360) whose hardware specifications were underwhelming to say the least. Thus IMO, the game engine has serious flaws that are so ingrained they can not fix the game without gutting it. The most logical course of action was a reset, and so we have Defiance 2050. If Defiance 2050 has these same technical issues then I agree its game over.

    Few things. The Defiance player base was next to nothing a few months ago. I remember running around being lucky to see 20 people all day. Now you have 100 people showing up for a single minor arkfall.

    Trion likely shut down servers as the community diminished. Resources not needed at the time. Now, the remaining servers are dealing with a lot more, and Trion knows that once 2050 comes out the base population of Defiance will again drop to next to nill. I understand them not putting money and resources in adding servers for only 6 months of real use.

    Tie that in with the other issues explained by Stevenlmarler which are also true and yes the current game is a nightmare. Mainly Database issues as it is being over taxed. Not much to do about it with out major cost increases and I'm sure all the extra bit purchases they are earning as people buy more Valor is going to help pay for 2050 to keep it F2P at launch.

    Just some guesses, well educated ones, but don't expect Trion to come out and tell us anything. It's not how they operate. Be happy you have the lvl of communication you have now. It's better than it's been in the past.

    Personally I think it's uncalled for... I think Trion already knows what they need to do to be successful. The jump to PS4 says they will be trying to make a more stable version of the game. But hey, if you have a problem with everything, you do not need to play the game. Hope I will not be seeing you on PS4 NA server...
