    My first real sit down with the retail Xbox version,and wow, 50-60 players all doing the Ark Fall vs the Hellborn Queen Mumma Jamma.And when over we all gathered in the middle and bounced like 5 year olds.For that amount of players,it was the smoothest Ark Fall I have done compared to lesser numbers on beta.

    Have a sweet shotgun that turns enemies in to dark purple mist,with a mag of 12 bullets it is deadly up close.

    @DFawkes I added you last night and you accepted. And I'm pretty sure you invited me to the clan, but after I accepted my UI went loony and then I hard locked, and called it a night.

    So... hell if I know whether I'm in or not. I guess I'll see later!

    Pretty dumb you only add people when they are online. Ah well. No other major issues so far, so I'm not going to complain about that.

    :) I did one of those late last night. It took quite a while and I had to skedaddle out of the area to grab ammo at one point too, but it was hilarious. So many players trying to shoot bugs. It did get a bit flaky with all the 'splosions and some folk were binging grenade launchers everywhere which didn't help. Needs to be a little bit smoother in future, but hopefully they'll get that sorted out soon.

    It was really funny though, only a few folk there at the start, but by the end there were masses of players there all attacking this thing.

    I almost got roped in to some shadow war event as I passed through later, but had to bail out, since it was 1:30 and I really had to get some sleep before going to work.

    I'd sooner be at home playing more though. I think this game is going to grab a hold of me for a while!

    I love it when everyone zergs across the landscape to get to the next part, it adds to the epic-ness!

    I'm gonna have to start forcing myself to log out before midnight - it was nearly 2am when i eventually crawled into bed, and i'm really feeling it today!

    I had a lot better night on this (PS3) last night because the drones of Ark Hunters were back and we all kept together for about 4 epic Ark Falls, zooming off like an army to each. Never had so much fun with a game and it's nice to slow down check your inventory and mod and tinker about, and cruise about doing missions. I even went near the first few missions and helped out the noobs.;-)

    They really should have supplied a nice informative thick manual for this.

    Yeah,I looked at the clock and went,no it can't be 2 am. Also being able to truly play the launch version for the first time had something to do with that.But I had a big smile on my face the whole time.

    Latest news of what they are fixing.

    I reported to as many Defiance channels as possible how I fixed my problem.Hopefully it gets people in game who had my problem.

    MMOs rarely have anything but pamphlets, normally they'll have tutorial missions that explain stuff or expect you to follow guides on the website/in game help.

    Pointless having a manual that can be out of date within a week of launch due to patches.

    I settled down to read the manual during the server shutdown while they updated stuff last night. I didn't have much to read. For a game like this I was really surprised how little info they give you.

    At least the Intel area gives you more info, so it is essentially an online manual, but they really do just chuck you in at the deep end in this. The EGO tutorial wasn't exactly comprehensive either. No idea if they teach you more when you unlock break down for scrap, or mods etc, but I shall see in time.

    Quite frankly, this game is a little...underwhelming (playing the PC version here). I bought it since I enjoyed Trion's other offering, Rift, but this one....urgh, it really needs work:

    - chat broken?
    - gunplay is terrible - bullet sponges, floaty feel
    - graphics are meh
    - I don't expect to be hand held but a little more explanation at the start would be cool

    If you're looking for a futuristic shooter and never played Borderlands .. buy that one instead.

    I got bored of borderlands. This has much more scope and the combat is perfect imo.

    I've yet to finish BL2... /blush.

    This is too early to say for me at the moment, as its only been 3 nights, but I've already pumped about 14 hours into it. /blush again.

    The lack of any real manual is very annoying, as are the chat issues.
    I don't remember any other MMO's being any better though certainly while being in week one.
    I remember (in recent times) Guild Wars 2 was dreadful for chat/guilds and trying to gather a team for the first month or so.

    Really is too early to tell for me, but I've enjoyed the 5 or 6 hours of playing thus far, not great, but entertaining enough for now, the gaming equivalent of a KFC.

    I don't think not finishing Borderlands 2 is anything to be ashamed at, there's plenty of EGers who got bored with it long before the end.

    Defiance has a much bigger scope and I like the combat quite a bit, it's much nicer to have player skill rather than some arbitrary level be the decider in an MMO fight. My solo encounter with that Hulk came to a screeching end because I failed to dodge an attack not because of some "spell" effect.

    I prefer it to BL at the moment. The world feels made for more than just you. BL had all the trappings of large-scale online, but with a crap story and limited co-op instead.

    I also like the combat. I love being able to jump high and run fast. It's so much more fun than 'realism', most of the time.

    If you have problems selling items, check you load outs. Anything that's equipped in any load outs you can't sell. Just managed to sell off my level 30 shield :)

    Ah, that's what I'm doing wrong, I've never touched my other loadouts so they'll still have the tutorial stuff. Cheers :)

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    Been trying to get rid of the level 30 stuff since launch day :). Got decoy and overcharge powers unlocked. One for each load out,if everything goes wrong with decoy switch over to overcharge loadout with 2 explosive weapons equipped. Just have to get the explosive damage perks as well now

    Well god damn!

    And I bet I've got separate shields/grenades in each load out too, no wonder I can't sell tons of stuff :)

    [edit]
    Fletch am I being daft, do you need to do anything special to unlock the other ego powers?

    So 30% extra explosive damage for every additional enemy caught in explosion perk +fully maxed out overcharge+auto grenade launching shotgun. This Is going to be a fun experiment

    Probably load out bug,you can equip the same item for 2 load outs but not 3
    Also when you equip different perks for your 2nd load out, then cycle through the load outs it's ok. Once you close the inventory screen then reopen it all your 2nd load out perks have reset themselves back to the first load out. This is for co op on Xbox.took me ages to write that up in the bug report section using the control pad :)

    You just need to have a skill unlocked next to it. If you put in the EGO codes on the website you should have scavenger unlocked, which is right next to overcharge (so I wouldn't go for that as the first skill).

    @Vortex808

    Yeah we got the usual 30 min warning message in game about servers being shut down. When I'm see you and Starchild online I will send you a clan invite
