    The colored dots on the side of the chat panel correspond to which chat channel you talk in.

    Not sure about missing text, though, maybe a bug.

    The beta key @Echo gave me let me install the beta from Steam. Then I used that key to add to my Trion account to have beta access. However, when I go to log in, the game tells me I don't have authorization to play. Was that beta key for a different event?

    What is this I don't even.

    Did you receive an email stating you are ready to play?

    I did not. I just activated the key as I was ready to go. Steam says I have 2 days left on the game, though, which usually implies that it believes the beta to be active for that key.

    You know, I love that in open world events in this game there are leader boards. I remember tooling around and getting into a larger arkfall event after it was halfway done and still managing to place second. I will say I felt pretty awesome at that moment, and its definitely something I want to see in more games.

    The game UI is a disaster. It's obtuse for the sake of being obtuse and some really poor decisions were made concerning it.

    That being said when actually playing the game, as opposed to interacting with it, I had fun.

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    Got the e-mail, beta won't let me in. Someone offered to let me just try it on their account, and they have definitely played it, but when I go to play it won't let me in for the same reason. Says I'm not authorized. XD

    What is this I don't even.

    Shooting feels a bit awkward, but its nothing I can't get passed. Haven't ran into any really noticeable bugs and the story seems interesting enough to want to follow. Overall, I'm having a good amount of fun not worrying about a hotbar rotation...

    I'm... I'm not actually considering impulse buying this, am I?

  • BasilBasil Registered User regular
    I, for one, am taking shameless advantage of the auto aim on zoom feature. It snaps to target, I DAKKA.

    The shooting is something I've noticed as well. It seems to be suffering from the problem that some third-person shooters suffer from every once and a while where due to the relation of where the shot comes from versus where the cursor and camera are located you're not getting a one-to-one relation when aiming. It only really seems to be a little annoying when using a sniper rifle or trying to be precise with a pistol though.

    Also, it seems I've hit maximum story progression for the content they are allowing us to run unfortunately. I didn't do much in the way of side missions either so I missed out on some potential content. As a tip for those who are just starting, don't do what I did. :P

    Other than that this game is great! REALLY looking forward to April 2nd.

    Hmm, can't access my Trion account because it's linked to a Rift authenticator from my old phone. Guess I'll call their customer support and try to get that taken care of.

    How do you get rid of the starting gun you pick from the 2nd quest? It won't let me sell/break down.

    But yeah I am having fun, I have gotten into more weapons like the beam one, explosive launcher and the infestor.

    At the bottom. Delete it.

    Nope, I have a grenade, shield and rifle I can't delete/sell/break down.

    Strange.

  • BasilBasil Registered User regular
    Sorry mojojoeo, I lost text and couldn't see any communication. Silly bug.

    Glad we got to shoot some stuff at least!


    I'm rather enjoying my grenade launcher. Got a medigun, too, but I only got to test it against archer hellbugs before the servers went down. Respectable damage for a lock on weapon.

    I just got a rocket launcher that throws explosives out when it hits. Haha!

    But yeah servers are down.

    I'll be on to shoot things when it gets back up; I only just showed up and it went down.

  • SeidkonaSeidkona Had an upgrade Registered User regular
    I'm really not having my mind changed about this game having tried it out.

    I'll give it another shot when the servers come back up to give it a fair shake but a number of design choices might have put this game into the "Not for me" camp.

    Any ETA on when servers are coming back?

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    They've been up, the downtime was very brief for a patch of some sort.

  • CorriganXCorriganX Registered User regular
    I think if you run it through steam something bugs out and it wont let you actually connect to the servers. I have a steam install and a beta install, and the beta one works fine the steam one won't connect.

    I found an Orange! I dunno what rarity that is, but the damned thing hits like a truck as it's a sawn-off shotgun. Obviously gotta reload between each shot, but other than stuff in events... Anything else pops. Anything that could survive gets an Overcharged shot.

    Shadow War is a hilarious game of Predator vs Marine when you have cloak and the other guys don't.

    PVP is quick and dirty and people drop like flies. It is pretty darn funny to watch teams wipe each other out in seconds.

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    Right before I logged out, I was jumping onto a dock at Murder Island and somehow glitched through it was and stuck under it in the water.

    Couldn't use weapons or grenades :/

  • CorehealerCorehealer The Apothecary The softer edge of the universe.Registered User regular
    I think Entaru might be coming back around to Defiance, UI aside.

    Though it could be a bit of the booze.

    So far this scratches the right itch. I'll try to put some more time into it tomorrow/today.

  • CorriganXCorriganX Registered User regular
    The game comes out in a little over a week. I've stopped playing it I think, I've done the beginning part 3-4 times already so just going to give it a pass until its no longer wiped. Cannot wait. Woo.

  • DecoyDecoy Registered User regular
    Yeah, I think I'm going to pick this up. Hotbar MMOs will always have a place in my heart, but it's no secret that I've been looking for a good, persistent, open world shooter for awhile. And it's been over a year now that I've been waiting for Firefall to get it's PVE act together, but they've seem to think that catering to a PVP focused, esport crowd is more important. Oh well, their loss.

    I bought this on a feeling that it had a certain something about it. The beta has confirmed this.

    I can guarantee It will be very solid. If some things come together it could be greatness.

    I barely played at all this weekend, because it'd be the fourth time I'd do the early stuff. I'm saving myself for the actual launch. See you there!

    Alright, yeah, there's more use of cover than I'd gotten from the time I was watching Echo's stream. Seems pretty fun. Been burned so badly by pre-orders lately though.

    Still would like the game to be cheaper then 60 to buy into, but when that goes down or in the event I get gifted the game on Steam, I will be all over this and buy into some of that delicious cosmetic goodness.

    I mean look at this:

  • DarkewolfeDarkewolfe Registered User regular
    Yeah, I guess that's a valid point. The more DLC a game has, the more likely it is to go on sale early. Once they hit market saturation for the $60 price point, they have more motivation to open it up to new buyers so that those buyers will be in position to buy DLC.

    I will buy DLC after I've become situated in the game and had a chance to sink some post launch time into it; the main thing is just to get people in the door and the sooner they make that easier, maybe to coincide with the debut of the Syfy series, the better for the game.

    Not to mention they have MTs as well and Trion is both known for good content generation and have an imperative to keep that pace up and add some free content too, specifically the kind that plays off the show.

    Bugs I've come across:
    1) Some weapons seem stuck in the inventory, won't let me delete them or sell them or break them down.
    2) When buying keycards from the merchants, after purchasing one it moves and another item moves into your selection, but the icon on the top right glitches to look like the keycard (This is how I bought a synergy mod set by accident).

    Anyway to report these?

  • SeidkonaSeidkona Had an upgrade Registered User regular
    I have changed my mind based on my second play of the game. There's a really great game here and at some point I'll be getting it.

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    I can't get a handle on PVP.

    Part of it is that I haven't played any shooter with KBAM in over a year, much less third person, nor am I used to maps being so open. I also haven't found the right weapons/perks combination either.

    Press ESC, space, select settings, the menu where you can log out/exit game, at the bottom of that list of support is a report bug spot, select that, report bug.

    I did this last night for a story quest where me and Man of the Waves got stuck in a loop of spawning raiders and engineer NPCs walking into walls.

    Coak + Explosives = kill generator.

    Looking at the perks, it appears you can get cloak up to about 4 seconds downtime without active ego regen perks. I wasn't entirely sold on cloak until I realized that it reapplies itself after you stop shooting. Add the 30% damage boost while cloaked and I expect some hilarity.

    Lots of the perks aren't that hot, but there are a few must haves for me scattered around. Like the one that reduces the range at which you get hit by explosives. That will be handy for my grenade launcher. I have killed myself so many times now.

    Cloak is easily the best power in the game. They should have come up with 3 more equivalent powers for the others.
