Defiance Executive Producer Apologizes to and Rewards Early Players for Game Issues

Defiance, the new MMO-shooter from Trion Worlds, has had the same ups and downs as any other MMO during it's first week of launch. Server downtime, gamers not receiving pre-order bonuses on time, and other issues have occurred. Today, the game's executive produce, Nathan Richardson, issued an apology to early players for the game's problems and is also rewarding them with free items. (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yet another severely botched MMO launch?

Well... This is Trion we're talking about...

It's not botched and the game is really fun. It's a MMO so you have to expect this sort of thing early on. It sucks but that is the way it is. At the end of the day, the bugs are only a problem because I truly enjoy playing the game.

With that said, I brought the game on the Second day of release (had to hunt down a copy actually) and I was able to play it plenty. Now I can play as much as I want. The connection issues are annoying, but not Sim City game ruining.

Wasnt botched at all.....they just said sorry about the rough first week (which wasnt that bad at all for an MMO), heres a bunch of free stuff. Pretty awesome, keep it up Trion.

It really wasn't that "botched" per se. There were a few minor issues. And there's a huge patch coming out next week that's supposed to be working to resolve it all. Plus they have 2 more patches planned after that. Trion is really working hard to make this game a good experience for players.

Peoples willingness to accept the excuse of "Its an MMO so problems at launch are expected" never ceases to amaze me.

And "incoming patch" doesn't excuse them either.

As long as you're standing around going "Its the first week" and "they will patch it", you are basically telling MMO producers 'go ahead, release it now and actually fix it later... players will put up with this'

Stop it. Quit making excuses for them.

There are actual legitimate reasons, you know. They don't know what's going to happen with servers and such when 10s of 1000s of people are online until they actually have 10s of 1000s of players on the game...

People who don't understand how servers and coding work shouldn't complain so much. You should be happy a company is willing to spend the time fixing them and reward you for the wait. Many don't.

They could have sat on the d*** thing until they straightened that stuff out.

I didn't have any issues at launch. Considering the game is a giant PVE FPS it's amazing it works so well.
Alduin  +   503d ago
The game has a few little problems like server timeouts and such but overall, it wasn't bad at all. But a lot of people have apparently dealt with worse issues. But Trion is working to fix it all and showering players with gifts for it... well...that's ok by me.

Too late, returned it and got Bioshock Infinite, now that's how you make a game.
