Upcoming Changes on PTS

PhantasieTrion 14 hours ago

FYI: Since there are various factors which determine which changes we can take from PTS and move them to live, there will be times (like today) where we take some, but not all, of the changes....

PhantasieTrion 6 hours ago

Hi Everyone As mentioned by Rashere in this thread, some of the improvements he is making to Defiance are ready to go on PTS, along with some other changes. And these changes are on PTS so we can...

Rashere 5 hours ago

I'm doing it in batches. I started with the Lock Boxes since I had to make other changes there anyway and that's as far as I got before the patch to PTS. It'll be another day or two before I can wrap...

Undesireable Lockbox Weapons

Rashere 12 hours ago

As I mentioned in my introductory post, I'm looking for feedback on the list of weapons that players feel are largely undesirable. The reason for that is two-fold: 1) I want to re-tune those...

Rashere 12 hours ago

They'll keep dropping in-game. I'm just temporarily pulling them from bit store boxes. Primarily, the lock boxes, but if they're in other boxes, from those as well. Rashere

Rashere 8 hours ago

How you buy the boxes is irrelevant, actually. They're the same box either way. It's just easier to reference the list as the ones that are in the Lock Boxes section of the bit store. If you use keys...

Rashere 8 hours ago

Sure. The only weapons I'm looking to remove are ones that you would never want. With that criteria in place, even a small drop chance is too much because someone is gonna feel bad when it happens....

Rashere 6 hours ago

Correct. I'm just making them stop dropping from lock boxes for now. It doesn't affect anything already in the world and doesn't affect their ability to drop in-game. Rashere

Rashere 6 hours ago

Just an FYI: my changes from the initial list are up on PTS now so I want to be perfectly clear: I plan to change the list based on this feedback before it goes live. What's there right now is just a...

Introduction and an Update

Rashere 14 hours ago

Hello everybody! I wanted to pop in here and introduce myself and talk a bit about some changes we’re making that should find their way to PTS soon. First things first, my name is Travis...

Rashere 12 hours ago

Great feedback everyone. Since I think we'll see a lot of debate on what weapons should or shouldn't be on that list, I set up a new thread specifically for that. Please post your comments there so...

Rashere 9 hours ago

Every day for 5 years. I consider Curt a good friend. He's an amazing man and I count myself lucky to have been able to work so closely with him.

Rashere 9 hours ago

I started down that path, but it quickly got extremely complicated so I just stuck with the basic list for now. If there are particular variants of a weapon you'd like to call out, please do so. ...

PhantasieTrion 6 hours ago

Agreed! I still have all the original, well worn, Icewind Dale, Dark Elf, etc books that, back in highschool, solidified my love for RPG's. I still read them every few months. Maybe thats what I'll...

Invasions and Conflict targets now show up in HUD

Two episodes, one code

Scapes 23 hours ago

Saw the same, the intent was for each episode to air a different EGO code. The missing one is HUNTER. Seeing about applying it to all accounts to compensate for it not being aired.

Scapes 23 hours ago

The Glyph code entry is geared for 4x5 codes (five sets of four alphanumeric characters), hence the added hyphen.

Armchair Arkhunter

Scapes 23 hours ago

Or we cooked it up months ago in time for airing deadlines, thinking it was a clever bridge between Defiance show fans and Defiance game fans.
