    Defiance? What is going on behind the scene on Defiance?

    What is going on behind the scene on Defiance?

    There have been 4 different sales promotion ads in the past 2 weeks. I guess players are really cracking down on what they truly say they will do and not spending anymore money on this game. People probably say, well it's sales on different platforms/consoles. But in reality that truly shows how bad the situation has gotten that they are pushing ads after ads to encourage spending. Never in the past have I seen Trion push out as numerous promotion like the way Gamingo is doing. I wonder if this is the end for Defiance, last ditch attempt. This is just my 2 cents on the matter. If Gamingo truly cares about their bottom line/profit, they should start taking the recommendation and suggestion on the forum seriously.

    Below are the time line for the recent sales. (will update if new sales occurs)

    Seems like the easiest way to make some $ off the game without actually working on it :/

    It wouldn't take alot to make D13 much more rewarding to play and then they'd make more $ anyways because players are happy and want to spend more

    There’s no special reason behind the scene, it’s more like we make offers because we can do it while the other teams are working on other tasks. Of course, no secret that Defiance like any other free-to-play game makes its income from the ingame sales and without sales no multiplayer game would survive even for a year.



    We do care about the community and we’re working on providing you’re the experience that you deserve. The developers are working on fixing various issues but it takes longer than we would like it to be so this goes really slow here. You might see it as nothing gets worked on and that we don’t listen you but getting behind the scene I can confirm that the team is not slacking down and there’s many things that we look into, fix and want to do in the future.

    That's def what I was hoping to hear but it's just hard not to be negative about it with expos broken, skipped events or broken events, boosts are gone, broken karma drops, nothing special on Py, no synergy rotations, lag, the drop rate got reduced, that's a lot of stuff we had that's gone now. I'm not expecting bugs and problems to get fixed instantly but couldn't you guys put some of those things like boosts and drops back for awhile? If you did one cool thing like special weapons on Py or raised drop rate by 60% for a week or boosts or anything most everybody would be ecstatic over it.

    If you guys want to make more $ then make Patron do more, like better drops and earn loyalty faster or something. Put some special guns on Py for patrons. An extra drop in expeditions for patrons so there's 4 instead of 3 so your chances of getting a sup are a little better. There's so much you guys could do but all lately is taking stuff away

    Defiance 2050 = 2018's worst cash grab. 100% fact.

    Imagine trying to peddle bit store trash instead of fixing the game in 2020.

    I actually do not care if they have 1,000 sales or just a few, they're just offerings to us, no need to read into it too much.

    If you want to know what Gamigo is up to then just read their Q4 Financial Report, i posted all about Q3 on Discord chat. https://discordapp.com/channels/2585...32238717075476

    But yeah, Patron Pass was a slap in the face for me... i gave my money for subscription... but i'm not getting all i paid for... hope things are done to make us, and those willing to pay, be happier...

    They took away pretty much everything extra we had in the game like boosts etc. and now are putting up sales all over the place. Trying to sell us the same stuff we already had.

    At the same time we get some busted events and expos. I don't see anything to justify the extra greediness

    Im sure losing my crowd and most of the people like them really did hurt a bit. But what can i say you can only accept "soon" for so long.... I mean i basically HAVE to accept rng per crate end up getting 💩 most times but why pay for patron on top of it all when i cant be in game for 5 mins smdh. EPIC FAIL on customer retention there.....

    going 7 years here , i know a lot was promised , and a lot of those werent keeped . lots of stuff not fixed, stuff not adjusted in pvp , the just abandon pvp for d13. server lag so bad. and trion/gamingo eagerly sticking there hands out for more of our money with stuff not getting fixed for years and the server lag issues . two community bug bashes what did the fix? why did the lock up the pages as well. and who won the "log in" give away ?

    Instead of fixing stuff and adding content (except for a couple of synergies and one only in pay crates) they're taking things away and trying to sell it back to us. I'm not buying anything else if this's how it's gonna be
