Thanks guys! I'll be busy today then smile.gif.

Played it for about 5 hours yesterday. I'm really starting to like this game.

The codes were worth it I would say. The added storage space and weapon levels made it worth the few minutes it took. I played a few ark falls, did some story missions and then ran a couple co-op missions with three friends last night. This game is starting to look like it will keep me pretty busy for a while.

People who want another friend for the 15 friends online playing Defiance at once pursuit item can add me. I only have 63 friends now so there's still room...

Yea, but can you imagine the current Inventory menu with hundreds of items in it? You'd forget what you have in the middle.

They should let us make folders. Still tell me I have X number of items out of Y max, but let me decide what is readily available and for what I'd have to dig...

I was telling a friend last night, I wish they had a storage or locker system in the game. Most MMO's have a place that you can store guns that you aren't using at the moment but don't want to get rid of. Maybe they can add this at a later time.

I'll send you one this afternoon. I am pretty low level because I haven't been able to play it for a while.

I've had 2 Arkfalls today with no crystal. Anybody else seen that problem?

I haven't been on yet today, but I did have some instances yesterday where quest markers weren't were they were supposed to be. I just went to the dashboard and went back in and everything worked fine after that.

I was in an arkfall that involves destroying the protective crystals then the center one. All the others were gone but the center one never lost its shield. I left, and I assume it timed out unfinished.

I think the crystals that have a base and a separate top floating above it look stylish, but I assume that's also a glitch...

I'm not happy about the Kinect support in Defiance.

Nothing I need to do is as important as switching loadouts. There are commands that do change loadouts, like "EGO Loadout 2" and "EGO Cycle Loadout". These commands, however, only function after you bring up the same menu in which you can then use the Y button to get the same job done.

And my fear is, it's about Balance. I can't remember ever saying "Yea, they really needed to get rid of that" when a gun did less damage, or whatever was changed because it was deemed to have been unbalanced. If I felt something wasn't playable, I didn't play.

So I responded to a thread about Kinect use in Defiance, and someone pointed out that "EGO Loadout 2" worked, just not the way I wanted it to work. And I verified this. And then the Specter of Balance came upon me, like Trion wanted everyone in a PvP match to be blinded by a menu when switching loadouts, so Kinect didn't make a positive difference for those who had it. Frankly, I find Kinect to be useless without a direct effect on how the game is played. If Mass Effect 3 had been PvP, I doubt any of the commands that changed ammo type or whatever would have worked. That kind of thing. I'd be FINE with loadout switching only working outside of PvP games. Really.

So that logo on the packaging about Better With Kinect doesn't mean better in the way *I* would define better. Microsoft needs a new slogan for games that have crippled Kinect features, or commands that are slower via Kinect for a reason, like so folks without Kinect aren't at a disadvantage.

The story Harrison Bergeron where everyone is made equal with handicaps on the superior ones comes to mind, but I'm sure Handicapped Kinect would be rejected.

Perhaps Kinect Lite...

Just had my first boot from the game. I wonder how much progress I lost. I was just about to finish a Major Arkfall. Everybody must have gotten online at once. I had one that was insanely laggy but managed to finish. This one was getting horrible lag, couldn't switch guns, couldn't pull up my load-out. There must have been 100 people at the final battle. I got disconnected from the server just before the bug died.

My only real complaint is the map though. It really is terrible. If you are on foot it will tell you to climb over mountains that are too steep for you to climb and if you are in a vehicle it will send you so far out of your way to stick to major roads. They really could do much better. At least show the terrain somewhat on the map and actually show small trails your character can traverse.

Are you setting a waypoint (press X) at the location and not getting a decent path? I do it all the time now so I don't end up in bad places...

Yeah, that can be a pain. If you look really closely, you can sorta see some mountains are higher/darker. I'm also open for anyone adding me for Defiance, this game rocks!

Send me a FR if you want. We do a lot of arkfalls when we get a good sized group. I am loving the game the more I play it.

The UPS guy showed up early so I'm installing it now. Good thing I did the codes yesterday!

Enjoy. You can send me a FR if you want someone to group up with on stuff.

Does anybody else find the lack of information/details kind of frustrating? There is virtually no info available about different weapons and effects online. So far I have a gun with a lightning bolt that seems to stun on occasion, one with flame that sets people on fire and one with a purple/black swirl thing. I have no idea what that means. So much seems to just be trial and error.

I couldn't give you the exact name for it, but it is basically sludge. It has a chance to slow enemies down. I have been pretty lucky because my friend has a lot of information about the game. If I have a question, I can just ask him. So I guess if you have any questions, either pm me here or on XBL and I will get you an answer.
post #80 of 125
Thanks. It's just strange to me the secrecy. None of the wiki's say anything about the weapons except a high level overview of each class. So when it comes to effects, multipliers, trade-offs between weapon types, etc it is all just trial and error. I have fun trying new and different things but it would be nice if there was a reference somewhere if you want to check. I would assume certain types of enemies have immunity and weaknesses to certain types of effects but have no way of knowing.

It is a little ridiculous how hard you have to search for any shred of in-depth info...

Yes it is. I had someone ask me about the swirly thing so I did a search and came up empty. It's frustrating, that's for sure.

Here we go, found some more details.

Toxicity
EFFECT: Increases damage done to the affected target by 20%

Electrical
EFFECT: Stuns target and enemies near target, also shorts out HUD.

Incendiary
EFFECT: Burns the enemy, dealing damage over time. Also, causes NPC's to panic.

Biological
EFFECT: Slows enemies movement and decreases their damage dealt.

Radiation
EFFECT: Makes target vulnerable and increases the damage they take.

Syphon
EFFECT: When the effect is triggered, it will heal the players HP, or shield should the player have max HP. When the effect occurs you will hear a sound and a few seconds later around ~450 damage will be applied to the target and you will be healed.

I am loving the dynamic world. Hellbug season is fun. There are hellbugs literally everywhere in the world. I am not very far into the story at this point, but every time I log on there is so much to do in the world that I don't feel like I need to hurry through it.

Thanks for the post. Ridiculous we have to rely on posts instead of developers to learn the important stuff...

A huge thank you! And I agree gunner, so much to do and all of it fun smile.gif.

Anybody else had Lockboxes give you nothing? I bought a Tier 2 and a Tier 3 lockbox today and nothing happened. It deducted the scrip and keycodes but nothing was added to my inventory. WTF?

That is strange. I haven't had that happen, but I haven't bought a lock box in a while. You should report it to them.
post #90 of 125
Must have been a weird server bug. I quit the game immediately after buying the 2 lockboxes and when I logged back in about 3 hours later now I have new items in my inventory even though I never got the pop-up notification. Strange.
