I hate the game now...here is why:
1) Object re-use:
Nothing says lazy devs, boring content, and zzzz when you keep re-using objects and regardless of whether its landscapes, interiors or exteriors, right now its to the point of ruining the games immersion and is cheesy cheap. For example, Arkfalls are a HUGE part of this game....yet, the Ark falls do not look like the cool space debris consisting of parts of Spaceship Ark interiors like you see in the first 15 minutes of the Episode 1 video. NOPE...they are genric blobs of leftover RIFT crap. They look like crap, the loot is crap, its exactly like dynamic spawns in RIFT where you have a circle of stupid stuff surrounding something. Frankly, the RIFT dynamic events are better than the ones in Defiance by a MILE.
You will soon get tired of all the landscapes, buildings and interiors to teh point of total boredom. I understand it gets better, but heck....why must every MMO force us to fight the same type of minions for hours on end - Rats = Hell Bugs. Freaking tired of stupid looking boring Hellbugs!
Give us something else!
2) Horrible Game Design:
The Weapon MOD interface is the worst in eh game industry and it doesnt even work properly IF and WHEN you figure out how it works.
3) Social and Chat is FAIL:
No one uses chat because you have to press Enter to use it and that keeps you from doing anything else. The game might as well me a PS3 console port in Single Player.
4) Loot Stinks:
The first several times you waste 30 minutes at an Arkfall with other players and get nothing other than junk loot, you stop bothering with them.
5) Quests are buggy and subject to server time outs:
So far there have been 2 quests that took hours to complete because they would time out do to server issues and you would not know it until the NPC you are escorting is unresponsive. You have to log out and log back in to fix , which forces you to start over.
6) Time trial quests give nothing:
If you dont place in top 3, you get NOTHING...not even XP.
7) Should be F2P with microtranactions:
Instead you buy the game for $59 and also have microtransactions, thats double dipping all for a sub par game.
8) Quest line comes and goes:
Sometimes the main quest line disappears and you get a message saying to use your map to do other quests. For the past 4 hours there has been NOTHING except the main quest which i cannot complete without a group. No Ark falls except for 1 or 2 small ones on the far side of the map, which when I get there will be over. No side quests for the past 4 hours either...BORING
9) Weapon stats are hosed:
Weapons with great stats stink and weapons with poor stats are good...you do not know what to buy, loot, or sell or keep or discard. Most green weapons are better than blue. You have no clue what you are using.
Save your money until they fix the game, re-design it, or something better comes out.
