Major issues addressed in latest Defiance patch

Early today "Defiance" servers were brought down to apply patch 1.012. This patch fixed several major issue plaguing the MMO shooter while enhancing the overall quality of the game.

Aside from general server stability improvements, players can also expect to see more active random encounters. Although these encounters no longer reward keycodes since the "Sharks in Winter Solstice" patch, players can still complete them for scrip.

Larger problems like losing items in the salvage matrix and loadouts not saving properly have also been "improved." PvPers should be pleased to see the correct capture and hold results at the end of a match now making the new episode pursuits completable. Finally, missions will only offer credit if a player actively participates in the mission now. With this change, leech camping might be somewhat rectified. (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sounds pretty good. The Game has a few pretty rough edges so it's nice to hear they are fixing those.

How games are reviewed in this patch it later era needs to change from day-one reports.

It's a tough situation, really. From my perspective a reviewer should always be reviewing the product they have in their hands, not what it may, or more importantly may not, be in the future.

having said that it would be nice to see more articles revisiting games like Defiance a month or so after release to see how its doing.

Defiance has a lot of potential, but my immediate experiance has been one of mediocrity. it's okay, but has a lot of problems and the core gameplay is just servicable. Still patches to fix the major problems could bring it up to being good in my eyes. And then if they expand on the game then it could even become great.

Speaking of expansion, I'd love them to follow the show and introduce a massive world event where the Volge launch an attack.
