just came back after a long break and...
the game has improved tons. However, the server is DEAD. I think I saw 2 people the entire time I was playing. I was even going solo in arkfalls. Very dissapointing since I actually want to play this now.

I'm in the exat same boat as you, not to mention the day we come back the server goes down for maintenece. i Think the best bet to co operative questing or arkhunting would be to join a clan of some kind, maybe one should start solely to cater to new players

That's how most MMOs other than WoW are. Unless you're in a hub area then you aren't really going to meet people. Best bet it to join with from friends or join a clan/group.

I have been playing Defiance for a little while now, still fairly newb, and I have to say that when I started the server (Euro) was heaving with bodies at all times. I believe this was about the time of the first DLC release, so obviously lots coming back aboard for that. Since then it has been more hit and miss, and there are many periods when it is pretty barren. Nevertheless, I often log in to find a fair sized server worth logged in and can get down to some fast moving game time while it lasts. Busy times seem to be around what I would think is school leaving times, later it gets lonlier it gets. Weekends are just downright unpredictable.
All in all I find enough to do to keep me busy either way, but yes its definitely more fun the more people on board.

if you need a hand raiding the arkfalls, hit me up man, been jonesin to score some scrip and lootz, just boring goin in alone with no one to talk jek with.

Not sure about you, but me and the Ark Fall Hunters are around more than often enough. Just look for the insane driver aiming the Dodge at anything on the road, that'll be us.

Me too... I started playing again a couple of days ago and I'm liking it for now, they improved a lot. But today was the first time I was in a queue LOL :D and I'm playing but I have not seen anyone yet. I would probably play a lot more if there were more people in game or with someone...

Last 2 days it was crowded,never seen so many ppl at one time,so guess it depends when,or where you are :)

I'm playing free trial now and... I'm pretty alone! WTF? Only me and monsters around - noone playing this? ><
Warzerger Feb 20 @ 10:30am 
There are people around, but you just need to find them... They are probably around events or will be later.

I used to play this when it first came out, stopped and came back to it and it seems like way less population for sure. However, I'm assuming most players tend to stick towards the lower part of the map, yes? I just started a new character (I lost my old one, long story) so I havent' quite gotten to the middle/lower parts of the map yet, but I assume there's more people there? I hope? When I played it way back most of the north part of the map except near Iron Demon Ranch was pretty barren except for brand new players.

i played last night for a bit, and yeah - there was actually a lot going on in the bottom part of the map. lots of fun!

It's lacking in the combat and environment. When you only give people a choice of a bunch of passive perks and only shoot a gun and throw a grenade, it's going to fade quickly. Plus, I don't feel a sense of accomplishment working my way across the map when one end of the map feels just like the other.

I find plenty of people at Ark Falls and open world events, sometimes up to 60 in one area, just depends on the time and what's happening.

I don't see many people in the world but curiously the group finder for instances is still pretty fast. Even if you choose specific ones like I do since i just started playing.
