For an mmo or even a shooter the progression of the game just ends far too quickly. It leaves lot to be desired. Also, if they don't fix that shot gun reload bug I'm going to scream. Shot guns are so nice in this game and every time you try to reload, it RE-RE-RE-RE-RE-RELOADS. -.-;  Fri May 03 2013 8:24PM Report

I've been playing casually and defiance is a good game to play on and off, worth the 60 bucks in my opinion. Depends on what you expect from the game when you bought it. I expected a mediocre game and a third person shooter(for a change of pace). I didn't bother following the hype train but rather followed my own goals and simply wanted a different game for a change of pace. Again.....worth the 60 bucks in my opinion. :D

I don't typically mind this as I played games like counterstrike for years and never really got bored, however I expect more from an MMO. Fri May 03 2013 8:53PM Report

I guild of mine lost an epic 2000 rating (orange) weapon with class synergy (yes your starting class does mean something other than starting outfit and look), and Trions customer support restored it for him the same day.

Also hacking issues - report the hackers, Trion is logging all stats and has been proactively banning cheaters last week, I haven't seen any in the last 3 days, and I PvP extensively.

DMG done client side is crap, been a long discussion on this, the hack that supposedly let's you do this shows you doing like 50,000 DMG on your screen but on that's only on your client, on the server you are doing your regular weapon dmg, so you other players are not getting hit for what you see on your screen.

There was another DMG exploit but it got fixed, I have only seen one speed hacker in PvP and have never seen this guy on again, he's been perma banned it seems.

I agree with other parts of your review, there are issues for sure, I can't wait for more content patches but in the mean time I am still having just stupid FUN, which Defiance delivers in a big way :)
