If you are gonna hate at least do it with solid points (and there are a lot) instead of  posting 80% of you being butt hurt by planetside 2 :p

Really let people decide for themselves, every game that releases this crap happens.. Leave it to the reviewers you useless waste of space.

 

Get it through your thick skull that not everyone shares your opinion and some of us like the game.

lol someone beat me to it, and actually said it better.

Thats what I thought.  I don't play soe games anymore so I wouldn't know first hand but I do know a lot of people who still play.

Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

Doesn't GW2 have a lot of hackers and bots?  If so, and it wasn't a big deal for you there, then why would it be different for Defiance?

No, not anymore.  Besides, I wasn't able to play around the time botting was a big issue.  And what I meant was, in a shooting game, hackers will take you out so much faster than they can in any MMO I've played.  That's why he/she had me at #1.

I never mentioned bots anyway.  You don't have to be able to hack to bot.

Besides, I never said I wouldn't play it (any hacking issues would be long fixed by the time the game is down in price) or that OP's other reasons were valid.

I played in the beta during more than one weekend and I preordered the game. The OP couldn't be more wrong about his ignorant and naive reasons.

I played the alpha plenty and cancelled my preorder, i just don't see the game being fun for very long, people will run out of content and be bored in no time. There's also almost no progression to be hard, and the world is tiny.

There could be a game that is 100% flawless in every aspect and haters will still hate on it.

Biggest thing for me is that beyond the TV tie-in, there is not much reason to hype this game. It is just not very good. If I do end up playing it ever, it will bought on sale and much later. $60? Not even close to worth it (and yes, I played the beta). Not even really an MMO either, since you don't need other players for nearly anything.

Whats with all the Defiance hate? Did it touch you guys inappropriately as childred? I think im going to make you guys some jerseys with your favorite mmo company logos on them so you can bash all the games you dont like with more style, the grace part is going to be up to you though.

Whats with all of the Defiance love? Those shouting from the rooftops its the best thing since sliced bread are just as bad if not worse. As Burntvet said above, all the reason you do not need to not buy the game is that its a lackluster title for computer, and only solid on console because it has no real competition.

As for those attempting to defend Defiance and its wide open ability to be hacked by saying "other games can be hacked too" please atleast look at the tech involved. There are decent ways to limit its hackability. Keeping everything client side like it has just so it can claim the term "pixel perfect shooter" for marketing is honestly pretty dumb. Keeping everything server side instead severely limits what hacks and how they can be implemented. After being told about the wide open security holes I cannot help but look at the title as anything but a joke.

That's what I'M saying.  But hey, people want to try and sweep issues like this under the rug til it happens to them.

Yeah try running Motherlode solo - hahah. Or doing any of the group dungeons solo for that matter, good luck with that.

How about soloing a major Arkfall, again - impossible without other players.

Also try PvP either 50 v 50 or 8 v 8.... again you don't need players for nearly anything?

 

Yes you can solo the entire main storyline, but folks have lots of problems with some bosses. Like I've never heard of anyone successfully beating the last boss with a pistol, I'd love to see that actually.

I've never seen this in beta or my 300+ hours in alpha. Period. 

There are folks who are DAMN good at sniping, but I haven't seen an aimbot yet - not saying it doesn't exist, I just personally haven't seen it.

Show me a video of this happening - would love to see it!

 

Also even in Alpha and Beta Trion is tracking all the dmg stats for every player, after every PvP match, every arkfall - heck every challenge you can see the player names and what their stats are, if something is far beyond the normal curve, you think they are not going to investigate that player?

Well that's good to know, though it's difficult to know who's using an aimbot and who isn't, isn't it?  I don't know, I was just concerned about the potential for cheating... but then again I know Trion is a competent developer and would take care of it if it did happen.

Then you didn't play alpha because the world is far from tiny
