I had been playing Defiance on console (XBow 360) as a break from FE last year and loving it, but felt...lost. I only had one friend online (Jessi Lemon) and we had a clan called Bad Kitty. I ground my way to EGO 3000 mercilessly, sometimes with Jessi, but most of the time soloing (although "solo" can be misleading; I was never alone doing arkfalls and most Defiance players are very friendly and will rez a gal when she foolishly tries to kill the Hellbug Queen head-to-head). Still, console Defiance grew tiresome, mainly due to a lack of social interaction. I never played after EGO 3000.
Recently, two of my FE clannie/friends talked me into downloading it on PC. Siaphus/Agent Washington and Qabu had both been playing for a bit and had talked me into at least trying to download it (I had been running DirectX11 and it was hampering the operations of a few games; a switch back to Dx9 fixed that...thanks to Nysek and Soylent!). The download went smoothly...and the game runs even better than it did on console!
So...Bad Kitty rides once again...as of this posting, EGO 500 and rolling (now if I can get that legendary Casti charge blade again....). Anyone else out there wanting a break from FE and feels like doing a few arkfalls together, hit me up!
