OP  4/02/13 4:44:14 PM#1

Watching a guy on twitch tv and he is already in the final area and what looks to be like the final story mission. I did post this on the Defiance forums and someone else has confirmed how short it is. If you dont care about the 12 hour story line and are ok with doing pvp and side missions after that like arkfalls then so be it. But for me that seems way to short of a game. Here is the fourm i started if you care to see his quick answer.

Scripted mmos are always short.

 

An mmo can only rely on solo questing and cut scenes so much before players are extremely bored (cough swtor).

All script, no depth.

The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.

The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, Linear Questing, Cut-Scenes...

So it's three times longer than most FPS games on the market?  xD

Serious though, if this is true then I saw it coming.  Almost Pre-ordered the collector's edition and bought the $39.99 season pass until I had someone slap me in the face that I was about to spend $150 on a FPS game just for the pre-order bonuses (I'm not a fan of FPS games as well, but I have nothing against those who are and no real complaints about this game as I've only played a few beta weekends and had a decent amount of fun).

I would've been so disappointed to have beaten the game in 12 hours after paying so much money, though.

D:

...Not to mention that I watched most of the story on twitch as someone played through already.  xD

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

The story is meant to progress with the TV show. Which mean progressive updates throughout its lifetime. Not to meantion the extreme amount of Misc. quest that you run into along with Arc Falls

The map currently is extremely small!

Can't help to bring it up, but it's for comparison sake.

If you look at the worldsize of WoW at launch, then the entire Defiance map pretty much fits into two of the smaller WoW zones.

That's like 1/50th the size of the entire landmass WoW had at launch.

Again.... just for comparison sake.

This game feels extremely rushed... almost in Cryptic Studios style.

It feels like the game has been developed within 2 years max!

Even the average single player RPG game has more content that this game. /shrug

TES: Skyrim for example completely dwarfs this game! Just the Main Storyline of Skryim takes way longer to complete then the Main storyline of Defiance. Not to mention the immense size of the Skyrim gameworld compared to Defiance tiny map.

With the current inflated Cashshop prices, it seems TRION is trying to quickly cash on this one... probably expecting the show not to last beyond the 12 episodes of the First Season... and so calculating the life expectancy of the game (regarding decent population).

I feel sorry for the people that got suckered in for the 30 dollar Season Pass for 5 DLC's. Unless TRION manages to push out that many within 3-4 months.

/facepalm

Still a wait and see game what with how much they release then.  The season pass made me worried that we have to pay to see the tie ins with the show.  Still, getting a one time or new event a week wouldn't keep me entertained on a personal note.  I'd definitely pay for the game if it was like $29.99 total with what I'm seeing so far.  Perhaps even pay more in a cash shop if it was free to play.

Progressive updates throughout its lifetime. So basically just like every mmorpg on the market? Released way too early, hardly any content, no end game. Is receiving updates over time something new that Defiance brings to the table? No, I didn't think so.

If the release schedule is (bi)weekly I'd say it's at least a new approach to this topic.

BTW: How is content measured in this game? By the main storyline? Looks to me to be meant to lead you around the map the first time and you go off as you want. Think GTA meets Rift.

 

I'm on the fence regarding Defiance. Bought in on a whim. Unsure as of now if it was worth it or not. Addicting but irritating at times.

I have chose to wait it out as im pretty sure this game will go free to play at some point. Free to play with a good cash shop and decent expansions for like 10-20$ every new season of the tv show seems like what this game should have been.

I know what this guy's done from my experience in the last beta weekend. He's put his blinkers on, ignored all the side missions and just followed the main storyline events. He's probably bypassed 70% of the content.

 

I did the same thing with my first character. Took me around 4 hours to get all the way to the last Storyline Mission (in the beta that is), and when that was complete, all those "side missions" vanished off the map. So I made a new char and at each stage of the main mission, new side missions became available on the map. I'd then go and do all of those before moving on to the next main mission.

 

By doing this my 2nd char played the rest of the weekend and only made it about half way through the main storyline (again, only the part that was shown in the beta, not the full story). So yeah, you can probably get through the main story in fairly short order, but there is other stuff going on. If you paid for the game you may as well take advantage of that content. Seems a waste to just bypass it all.

 You seem to have forgotten that it is 60 bucks for access to the servers without monthly fee or swtor-style microtransactions, also content updates (except from major expansions) and unlimited playtime.

Seems like a good deal to me, just like GW2 and Diablo 3.

Also - Defiance is NOT A MMORPG - it's a shooter. Even Trion said it is a shooter.

Nope! The 60 bucks is what you get now!  Every little content / feature update will be PAID DLC!

And for the rest you will be nickle and dimed in the Cash Shop!

 It is free to play after client has been purchased.

No different from GW2 or buying Borderlands 2.

If you want a free client as well I don't know what to tell you.

At least ArenaNet has so far released major content updates for free!

And on top you don't get nickle and dimed in the Cash Shop.

Defiance won't get free content updates! Everything will be added via PAID DLC!

Hence they try to trick people already in buying a 30 dollar season pass for the first 5 DLC's!

The more I play it... the more it feels like a total Cash Grab! /shrug

No need to tell me anything as i have said i think the game should be free to play. I understand other games are buy to play like Guild Wars 2. Which i do think (GW2) is worth the price as the game has a huge game world with much more to do in it then this game does. This game should be free to play with a good cash shop and paid expansions every once in a while.

Content will be available for free. There will be optional content per paid DLC.

The Cash Shop is convenience and cosmetics atm. Expensive but not p2win.

This is what I got from beta. It'a a pitty too, because I've been looking forward to this one since the rumors of Trion getting 150 million (or was it 100 mill) to make 3 mmos. 

 

What bothers me the most is that it's 60$ upfront.

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

Where is this mentioned? So far everything points to PAID DLC only.
