Trion is Not so Defiant to Fans: A New Update Will Fix Defiance Bugs

Defiance launched officially on April 2nd and is supposed to attract players to the new SyFy channel show.  However, initial reports are saying that the MMORPG has some slight issues.  The console versions aren’t as smooth as their PC counterpart, and there have been a lot of bugs reported.  Luckily Trion has responded to the various fan complaints and are releasing an update that will fix the majority of the problems.  The update is expected to go live on Monday or Tuesday,  but you can get ahead of it and look at the list of fixes including problems with server stability, the dive-roll bug, and a whole lot more.

Trion is also coming out with exclusive boosts and an in-game title for players who stuck with the game even with its shaky launch.  This is what the Executive Producer, Nathan Richardsson had to say:

Like in all relationships, it’s give and receive. We’ve asked a lot of you lately, going through some difficult times during our launch. While you’ve been very understanding and patient with us, we still feel we can do more. More than addressing the issues with servers, improving the client, deploying patches and preparing a long road of massive free (and paid) DLCs, more than evolving the future of Defiance with you.

You might have had disconnects, unable to log in early on, long time to patch, wrong keys, pre-order items missing or simply had to read through my blogs while waiting for the servers to come up after code deployments.

It’s been rough, we know. So your account now has a gift from us, to you. To make good, to show you that we really appreciate what you’ve gone through with us. It includes;

• Exclusive Launch-Only In-Game Title: Daredevil

• 1-Week Weapons Skill Boost

• 1-Week Scrip Boost

• 1-Week Loot Boost

• 1-Week XP Boost

Hopefully the update works the way both Trion and fans want it to, and they get rewarded for their patience.  While things started out problematically, it’s nice to see that Trion is so dedicated to making this the experience that MMORPG fans want and need.
