Why is the loot in ark crates after major arkfalls always shitty, will there ever be epics in them?

During one of their recent live streams, they showed some of the new weapons they are planning on bringing out, and one was a "rail gun", but it was the same as the assassin's last skill, the charge sniper rifle.  I know the damage won't be the same, but it kind of makes that skill no longer unique.  I'm wondering if they considered this while developing it, or pitching it.

Are there any more back story with regards to the game? Which opens up new locations? For me the world map seems pretty small tbh.. We need more maps where we can use small boats and flying vehicles. To reach certain places.

1. Guardian's tanking ability in general is not needed for group play. How would you adress that?

2. Could you please give us more specifics regarding future end game content(s)?

3. Some weapons like manually detonated grenade launchers and semi-auto sniper rifles have no real purpose in the game. Any plan for weapon rebalancing?

Thanks for the fast response to my last question. I have another issue that needs to be addressed. The dailies for the defiant few are not showing completion. I am missing out on ark keys because of this. Are you aware of this glitch and are yall working on fixing it.

Are the “hidden” vendors ever sell the specials again? Cause it seems kinda pointless to have them if all they sell is the same stuff as the regular supply vendor. 

The timeline mentions a new leveling system. Will it be more productive than the current dump everything from your inventory so you can get a good drop.  Nothing like picking up an epic of your favorite weapon on wave 10 only to have it be 60 points lower than the base of your rare already equipped because you picked up 12 items in the siege already. 

And when will will there be an event or something different than the usual grind.

Dokugan Ryu (PC-NA)

The questions are :-

1. Is there any plans to introduce trade? Because it seems to happen that weapon drops are extremely random and you do not always find those particular weapons which you like to use as mains. If trading was introduced we could trade them out for other weapons.

2. Is there any plan to introduce blue and purple weapons in vendors? It becomes extremely difficult to wait for a blue or purple drop of a particular weapon that I need. Since, we actually earn those scripts I genuinely feel that we should be given the choise to buy blue or purple weapons from vendors.

3. Why do we only get damaged weapons from faction vendors? We work hard everyday to complete daily and weekly pursuits. Why are we not allowed to have a 5 star weapon with those faction currencies? It is quite sad to see this faction vendor system.

As you level up your rep the quality gets better. I get worn now instead of damaged. I’d be higher if I knew that I shouldn’t spend rep until later.

Lemonheads

Do they understand that games nowadays need more care in the first few months, to keep the player base from moving on to a different better put together game? The necessity of keeping people interested and fixing things early on is needed rather than just doing one big patch that will come out...a month later. Most players don't get hooked by the progression that automatically just brick walls, where it is a hassle after the campaign to do. Do they (Trion) think that the bigger patches are better for a game genre that should only have large patches for expansions, as the old game packaged a lot with lots of small hotfixes.

Solpandora

will they be at any point reintroducing ark codes or other ways to get exclusive in game vehicles/promos, also will we ever be able to mix and match abilities from classes to build our own buildout for play style or are we ever confined to the class system? will we ever be able to spec different classes for different load outs or only the one for all loadouts? 2050 sems to lack the cusmization for style of play that  the original had annd based on the trend of other games 2050 seems to be heading the other direction in that regaurd away from true customization towards a concrete class only system, how do they see this movement away from customization benifiting player experience in 2050 future?

I think the pursuits need to be fixed, some are unobtainable because of the kill mechanic. If we are all shooting the boss we should all get credit for the kill. For example, killing 60 monoliths. When you have to compete for that kill you will never be able to complete this task. Fix the arenas and the sniper hotshots. I feel if I get a 30 kill chain with a sniper I should at least get bronze. I feel so many things are inconsistent and need to be addressed. Fix the super weapons that you can't pickup in all of the missions. Fix the ark fall events where I have 180 kills and the guy with 30 kills gets 1St place. I think all of these issues should be addressed.

Are the shrill and the afflicted coming to defiance 2050 and eta on sieges as the game is dieing a slow death 

1 month ago

Krapping Koala

I'd like to ask if we can re-spec our classes differently within each loadout. I typically build loadouts for specific situations/encounters, and there are times when a certain class is the best for a given situation, but that same class spec'd differently may be the best for another situation.

So for example, I'd like to be able have Loadout 1 with the Assault class with Sprint, Super Melee, & Close Combat, and then have Loadout 2 with the Assault class with Sprint, Healing Stim, & Concussion Blast. The problem is that as things are currently, if I change the way a class is spec'd, it changes it for all loadouts.

In D13 we accessed the ego grid from within a certain loadout, and spec'd the grid for that specific loadout. So I dont think it should be too much to ask to similarly be able to choose a class within a certain loadout and then spec that class for that specific loadout.

I'd like to know why you gave mods a PR but they don't raise the PR of the weapon? I'm not talking about adding all of it but a % would be great.

Lemonheads 1 month ago

They answered this on a live stream saying the reason mods have pr is due to scaling rather than having it flat, they won't add extra pr from weapons because that would make sense =)

I want to know why Defiance 2050 is worse than the last one. For example, why you have fewer customization options. Less outfits too.

When Defiance the show and game had first popped up, it was great to see the tie-in between the two. It would be amazing to see another Defiance story, maybe in the form of a webcomic or podcast to go along with the 2050 community. Something along of " Defiance, Advent of the Arkhunters".

Actually in the last stream, from Trion on twitch they said they were adding harder "waves" to major arkfalls.

When are they going to fix arenas so that we can play them with friends like we were able to do in oldefiance?

why create classes if not all the content in the game is able to be played with friends so that you can synergize and have a medic, assault, Assassin, ect in arenas to complete them?

Why did they feel like Defiance needed a change in terms of PR, weapons, classes, less content?

Are the changes they made something that they thought the community wanted?

With the community response not being the best are they looking to bring D13 to next gens in any way?

When are they going to start to communicate with the community more on all platforms forums, Twitter, ect?

They are working on fixing the bonesaw and legendaries have higher drop rates the higher your power level. If you are under 3k it is very slim. Hope this helps!
