[News] F2P Defiance Finally Arrives on Steam

Posted 3 days ago by EtaewComments: 0 | Views:69

The Free to Play version of Defiance has arrived on Steam, 6 weeks after the standalone and Glyph clients were able to access it.

Previously people on Steam were able to download Defiance as a demo, but this stopped working and presented some problems with purchasing DLC on Steam that they were unable to get the Keys for.

There is still no official date on when Defiance goes Free to Play on consoles after the July 15 target date has come and gone.

I am glad that Steam users can finally gain access to the game, as I found it pretty shocking that they had to jump through a number of hoops to gain access to the game. Welcome Steam players!

[Question] What do you think of the site search?

Posted 5 days ago by EtaewComments: 2 | Views:90

I'm looking for feedback specifically relating to the site search, at the moment I currently use Google to power the search this has its advantages and disadvantages.

When we launched I provided my own dedicated search system, but this sometimes didn't work for everyone, especially the autocomplete functionality. However I am quite tempted to write the system again.

Are you happy using Google powered search or should I write a new search system?

[Soapbox] Defiant Few Weapons and PvP

Posted 1 week ago by EtaewComments: 3 | Views:813

Like most people, I've left my PvP pursuits until last, and now I'm trying to take it seriously for the first time since launch. After trying several matches of PvP and only racking up a handful of kills, I turn my frustration towards the new weapons. 

Edit: Kiwibird posted that some changes are going to be made to the weapons and PhantasieTrion posted some notes on the PTS for this.

[News] Giveaway Reward Winners

Posted 1 week ago by EtaewComments: 16 | Views:395

The first Defiance Data giveaway has ended, and the winners have been drawn. Thank you to everyone who took part in our first Giveaway. We wrote a system to sign up and give away the rewards, and it performed brilliantly.

Congratulations to the 24  people who have won an Extra Life Lockbox (a renamed Tier 4 Lockbox), you can see the list below or check out the Giveaway Page.

Those who won will receive a notification on the top-right of your screen with the code to enter into the account center.

Thoughts after this giveaway:

  • The giveaway duration was probably too long, maybe 3 days instead of 7 would have been a good amount
  • A giveaway really did boost the amount of registrations and interactions on the site, I'd like to do more of them
  • I didn't find out enough about the reward before I offered it, I'll do better next time

How did you guys feel about the signup process, rewards and the event in general?

[Soapbox] Warmaster Armor Health Indicators

Posted 1 week ago by EtaewComments: 2 | Views:259

Last week I proposed that we had similar health indicators on the Warmaster that we are used to on the Monolith. I provided an image to illustrate what I meant and a description of how it would work and why it would be useful.

The developers replied back to this suggestion positively saying:

Originally posted in the July 15 Forum Answers

This is something we plan on implementing, and it's going to be awesome.

I don't know if this topic contributed to this plan, there were several pages of forum posts desiring the feature, or whether they had always planned on doing this. I think it's an important quality of life change and I love those.
