Hello, and welcome to my Defiance Let's Play Thread. I'm not expert at doing Let's Play videos but I do want to share my experience when it comes to playing games and most my joy comes from MMORPG's. So this is going be a shorter series since it is closed Beta and not the release of the game.

I hope you guys and girls Enjoy it and if you have any questions or comments or even suggestions then feel free to ask me 

Episodes:
Let's Play Defiance: Closed Beta - Episode 1 - Intro & Character Creation & Starting Zone
Let's Play Defiance: Closed Beta - Episode 2 - My First ATV and Mission Running
Let's Play Defiance: Closed Beta - Episode 3 - Arkfall has landed & I suck at racing
Let's Play Defiance: Closed Beta - Episode 4 - Pest Control
Let's Play Defiance: Closed Beta - Episode 5 - Team Deathmatch



Other Let's Play Series:
Rift: Storm Legion

I like all of your "let's play" videos alot for various reasons.

To name two of them, your play-style is alot like mine nowadays and your make it easy for the viewer to keep focus on the gameplay, i.e. rather present the game instead of yourself (like many people who upload videos do with their nonstop blabberingg, acting up and overall attitude). Back to your play-style, your approach to the game is so much like my own that i could very well imagine to have played along with you in one of your episodes -in theory ofc.

Just yesterday i watched your Rift clips and they reminded me what a beauty that game is visually. I do think that with your Rift series you are a bit late to the party. After like 2 years, i guess everyone is beyond fed up with the starting area and low level zones :)

Thats just some thoughts, keep the clips coming!

Back from the banned...again.

Thanks everyone. The last episode is up for the Closed Beta. I had a wonderful time and do recommend buying the game on release. I unfortunately don't have the pocket money right now but I will be with you guys when I do!

Let's Play Defiance: Closed Beta - Episode 5 - Team Deathmatch

Hope you have a wonderful time!

One thing that helps in PvP is getting a couple of folks to drive one of those armed vehicles - that machine gun is LETHAL, most powerful gun in the game by far.

Also my advice is to NEVER stand still when unstealthed in PvP, just move constantly!

I don't play a sniper in PvP as I don't like the style personally, but movement is key in PvP, aiming etc will come with practice, but just run all the time.

Nice video.

Also advice on those arkfalls - the flyers shoot the tar that snares you, gotta kill those fast as if you get tarred, you can't escape the Hellbug Warriors (they burrow and then jump at your feet underground for huge damage).

Also if you see elite_versions of any of those make sure you have backup. 

Another tip - the yellow areas on hellbugs are their vulnerable spots, so mouths, underbelly anything glowing yellow (especially on the elite and BIG bugs) aim for that, as the bigger they are the thicker their armor is and the bigger their immunity to damage is.

just watched the episode 5. Nice video. By the way, the weapon you had with a green symbol i think its called nano effect. There are various types, the green one which is toxic, a blue one which snares the enemy (slow down i think), electricity, syphon, etc. I noticed the electricity one is more effective against cyborgs (or maybe i was just lucky to proc the electrical effect with almost every shot lol). I love sniper / shotgun with cloak skill.

 

Anyway, nice vid man.

np :p

by the way, what software you use for your videos? i tried recording with Fraps and a 4 minute vid is like 3gb.... I have Sony movie studio platinum but i dont know if that reduces the size of the fraps vids without sacrificing quality. Im a noob with vids, gotta check some tutorials.

There are quite a few effects - fire does damage over time, I prefer the Volge blue plasma weapons as they seem to have armor penetration. I think that type is called Cold-Fire as that is the signature of Volge biotechnology weaponry.

I don't have the game but it seems that people can get on right now. It sounds like a April fools but you can get on. Now if they decide to wipe tomorrow then that is another thing...
