    We definitely want you to work 48 hours/day.

    Agreed... but honestly, I don't think they have the budget for this.
    Defiance 2050 = 2018's worst cash grab. 100% fact.

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

    You get event Weapons and Mods from the Minor Afkfalls (also from Minors those connected to a Major Arkfall) and at the end of Major’s Boss Arkfall. There’s also an issue with name displaying so you won’t see any “Devouring” text in the name but it will be shown in the stat graph.

    This loot drop rate was like this since the first event in Defiance 2050, so Mayhem and Mutiny works same as Event Horizon, 99ers, Colony Courtship...

    Hulker Hell and Solstice Strike were special events so they had different loot settings.
    Is ground loot going to be fixed for D13 as well? The ground loot is not in the event synergy, and infector mods aren't in the loot pool at all.

    The drops you see during events are not from event mobs. They are from outside mobs that wander into the event area. That's why there's so few of them.

    I messaged Medjed about this on 17th and she sent me:

    Only Hulker Hell and Solstice Strike had drops during boss fight.
    I tried to explain that this is broken, but she seems to think that it is not! Also if her statement is true, then this makes the Final arkfalls very unenjoyable, and useless if you do not have any of (pg) to spend on event boxes! Why would they ever set it up like this? The whole fun of these is picking up guns and mods from the ground to fill your event Guns! I remember on the 360 in the early days, there would be stuff everywhere on the ground to pick up! This made the events fun to be at! How this is now sucks! I have the pursuit done and after I spend my pg there is no reason to do finals! And if there is no reason to do the event, then what is the reason to play? We are all bored with this same stuff over and over! If it wasnt for this great clan that I'm running I wouldn't be playing this game! It has really turned into a giant cash grab if you ask me! I would be ok with that, if there were improvements, fixes, new content! But there has been none at all for way too long!

    This event is kind of a loser event. The synergy is really bad until you get 4 crystals (which breaks the whole thing, cause it's damn near impossible to get 4+ flawless, and anything less will decimate your synergy tier), the mod fusion is also very bad, and even the guns you can get as prime are bad, except maybe one.

    And then there's the problem with the majors themselves: the effing bosses are bugged to hell. I would say about 20-30% of my shots deal damage to the mutineer or the holograms. My turrets and mines are quite effective, always hitting bullseye, but relying almost 100% on your class powers is just silly. And that's when the bosses don't end up buried 100 feet underground.

    The one thing they did right was to get rid of crappy nades and shields from the event boxes. But they only increased the rate of blue mods to make up for it. So at least you get mods for all your guns that are not too awful, but they're all blue.

    In the old days - the business model was:
    • Buy the game,
    • Buy some dress up outfits from the store, if you want,
    • Buy some boosts to help get you to E-5000, if you want,
    • Buy an optional vehicle, if you want,
    • Storage was awarded as you leveled, buy more, if you want,
    • Otherwise, play for free after that.

    That business model failed when they discovered they weren't making enough money to pay for everything without a subscription, and went to microtransaction.

    Buying weapons that weren't available in game otherwise was pay-to-win, so they made them available in the store as a microtransaction and limited the rewards/drops in game to make the store profitable.

    Mods make your weapon more efficient but don't do much to increase the DPS by all that much beyond turning on the event syn, but since they're available as rewards/drops on a limited scale it's arguably not strictly 'pay to win'.

    All that stuff in the store has to generate a revenue stream to pay for the servers and (very limited part time, shared with other games) dev participation.

    Socialism free stuff has to be paid for somehow.
    You want the ability to 'play for free' without even having to buy the game, you have to accept that the money has to come from someplace just to run the game.

    I'm good with a subscription based game, and fewer microtransactions, but it was never set up that way, and they couldn't retroactively tell players they had to start paying a sub so that full time devs could be put on staff for new stuff and bug stomping.
    Especially with the poor development track record they were already bringing to the table.

    And when the game was reintroduced as 2050 - they didn't have the where-with-all to afford full time devs dedicated to making the game work all the time, so they couldn't lure players in with the 'pay a subscription, and we guarantee it will work this time, we promise', statement, so it was also destined to fail to a degree most of us find unpalatable.

    TRION got stuck overselling profit returns to investors in return for development money and then having to promise more money to get new investors to keep stuff running, that they ended up having to pay so much money to the investors that there was so little left over they had to cut staff to the bone.

    It's the old 'stuck between a rock and a hard place' problem.

    I'm just happy to play a game with a concept that isn't available in other games, with decent graphics and physics, and a storyline I like more/better than just about anything else that's out there.

    I play ESO with a sub. It's a great game, (and a MASSIVE game compared to this) with new maps and stuff added all the time, and their forums are full of the same 'crap don't work, some of it has never worked right, and it's never getting fixed regardless of the promises made since launch' comments that our forum is littered with.

    I want to see Sili Valley again, sure, and Kinship was better with volge, Chinatown was better with The Infected as one of the swarms there, and The Infected belong back in the game in general, and chat suxor, vehicles suxor, and the areas between maps suxor where enemy blink in/out/in over and over again (mutants between sniper ridge, and the Plaza Rescue, or the area surrounding Kinship as 2 examples) and they tried to fix some stuff and failed.
    I have my own list of disappontment as long as many here.

    Hell, sometimes I play this game just to listen to the battle music at Diablo swarms, and Quarry swarms, and Bugchug area.
    And there's something about the chaos of a night time Ark, watching the sky, and being in the moment, that I just can't let go of.

    Sure, I get frustrated at bugs that crop up, and stuff like my disappearing Tempest recoil bonus... you 'Just want stuff to work'....

    Beyond that - the rest of it is just water under the dam and over the bridge to me.
    These are just my opinions.
    I have lots of opinions.
    Some of them, on occasion, people have agreed with.
    I do not trust those people.
