    I kept on reading on official forums that new patch notes are 8 pages long. Not even close.

    However, i still don't see option for sending tells or keeping chat boxes on permanently. Voice chat is going to be a mess when large number of people are going to talk during arkfalls.

    I wish they just give us good old chat system.

  • OceanhawkOceanhawk Milford, OHPosts: 27Member

    LMAO, so much for all the fanboy comments that the game will get fixed with the first patch. Looks to me like they didn't really address what was wrong with the game.

     

    I guess having the ability to replay the main storyline is adding new content!!! LMAO

    Yes, once again you 'non' fan-boys have received a reason to be an ass on the forums. But, with no less than two  "LMAO"'s and a total of three exclamation points, and the assumption that creating and adding new content could actually be possible without stopping time between release and the first patch......I'm not sure you need reason.

    [mod edit]  I remember people doing just what he said for a number of games right after launch. A large number of those were things we were begging for and reported during early "alpha". Trion in general has this poor habit of touching stuff and then showing it off like its all awesome even though they really did not do anything to it. They have done it with numerous class "revamps" and even with base systems like how rifts granted loot and xp right after launch. The sheer amount of hype and double talk they do to drive this great reputation really irks me, and I just see more of the same with Defiance.

    Feel free to slam me for pointing out that Trion failed to live up to their promise of releasing an eight page patch to fix everything people are complaining about. Just because you think everything is all hunky dory doesn't mean I'm wrong. I am still  confused how people like you can spend most of you day lauding the attributes of a crappy game design when the vast majority of players point out serious issues. 

     

    How can a MMO be released with so little content that every quest can be accomplished in about a week? I guess their "Contract" are supposed to give you something to do once tou finish all the other quests. Problem is that you have like 5 factions with only 2 quests each, one doable once per 24 hours and the other once per week. That isn't conent.

    The chat fix isn't a fix at all one line of text available in an MMO? They didn't mention any fixes to VOIP chat that I can see. 

    So keep hating on people that would like to see the game get fixed as promised.

    Best fix in the patch.

    Wow.. so they are lowering the damage of grenade launcher when they already aren't that high.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    When you start and end your post with "LMAO" and calling the players fanboys, that tends to make it sound like you are the one hating and that you could care less that the game is being fixed.  Don't get mad if someone is calling you out on how you are posting.

    I did.

    But since my point seems lost on you:  it was not what you said, but the way you said it.

    Looks like a good start  to me, and I dont think people should be so shocked that the cannot get to everyones pet peave with the first patch.

    Most of the problems listed I have not even encountered yet because, well, I just don't burn through content like a ravenous flesh eating Zombie!

    Now don't get me wrong, I really appreciate all of you "RFEZ's", because of you by the time I get to problem area's of a game all the issue's have been addressed.

    So I want to thank all of you "RFEZ's" for your dedication to making Defiance a better game!

    Some awesome bug fixes there, Trion's been busy as usual.

    Nathan Richardson (producer of Defiance) said that the content patch would be delayed for a week as he focused the entire team on bug fixes.

    You seem to forget that in games like wow and its clones you hit the level cap in 2-3 days, then you spend months doing the same repetive (dailies and the same raids over and over) content for gear that serves no uses anymore. All mmo's are the same pretty much.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    Sorry but that patch list looked pretty damn impressive to me. But seeing as how I actually play the game, I guess my opinio matters more than the trolls that tend to stick around and cry about a game they don't like, or play. 

     

     As for new content, if they have no content ready to roll out, wouldn't it come out Monday with the premier of the TV show? I would not expect new content at this stage of the game. 

     

    Not so nice guy!

    This is a bug fix / improvement patch. Not a content patch. They never said this was for content, nor did any "fanboys", but nice try there. The 1st DLC is also coming out monday, along with the new episod emissions from the show airing coming out monday or tuesday. Knowing the difference between bug patches and content additions = win.

    Kinda hate when they push a game they KNOW is broken or not ready then for the next 6 months they scramble like their asses are on fire to fix the game before they lose all their playerbase.

     

    Just once wish someone would actually make their best damn effort to release a polished ready game.

    However, i still don't see option for sending tells or keeping chat boxes on permanently. Voice chat is going to be a mess when large number of people are going to talk during arkfalls.

    I wish they just give us good old chat system.

    Ehhhh, think before you type. I just pasted the patch notes into Word, and it comes out to 7.5 pages long with the default settings (Times New Roman, 12 point font, usual margins).

    So.... yeah, the patch notes are 8 pages long.

    There is no such thing when taking into account the number of variables they are working with, multiple video card makers, video card models, video card drivers, routers makers, models, router os, windows versions, etc...

     

     The list woud go on for days. Look at a game like Everquest that released in 1998? It still gets bug patches. It part of the deal when trying to make millions of variations of PC, and communications play together.

    Not so nice guy!

    He's been posting since 09' he already knows this. It just suits him to use the same tired old excuse trolling this game

    That would be a better argument if the vast, vast bulk of the issues weren't well known and discussed to death for months on the Alpha and Beta forums. And I don't just mean issues like draw distance (or lack thereof), there being no PTT or the laughably borked chat system, though those were discussed and ignored, I mean bugs, glitches, ways hotshots could be cheesed, in all a very long list of issues that were long known about and never should have been there at launch.

     

    Trion really did severly drop the ball on this one.

     

    In any event, there is one aspect of the patch notes that should bring hilarity to all:

     

    ? Area voice chat has been improved and is now on by default.

     

    If nothing else, proof the devs definitely have a sense of humor.

    I guess having the ability to replay the main storyline is adding new content!!! LMAO

     

    "I’m going tease a little bit and give you the draft patch notes. They are incomplete, we haven’t put our nice explanatory voice into them or highlighted the big wins, they are buried in there for you to discover but we’re all gamers, right? We’re pretty sure you’ll appreciate this small heads-up and apply your gamer eye to them instead of take these as the Final Truth to Fight Over™. I’m going to regret publishing these, aren’t I?

    Many questions will come up, such as, “why isn’t my problem fixed?”, “X is more important than Y”, “the most important thing is this, why not fix this first?” and “am I right to be afraid of pressure cookers?”. Some of these I can answer straight away. There are issues which are not on this list which require much larger changes to address than could fit into this patch, would have been too dangerous to change (server explode kind of way), didn’t have a clear resolution or simply, or the right fix might not have made it in time for the cut-off date.

    That’s why you get the opportunity to comment right now. It won’t change this patch, it’s almost impossible. It’s on rails. But you can chime in on future patches. So don’t hesitate pointing out the issue you feel we should be addressing, we love constructive criticism. In most cases we know about it and it’s in the pipeline but as they say in Iceland, sometimes “it lies in the eyes upstairs”, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m sure you understand."
