    If they end up lowering the item drop rate for the F2P version. Then it won't really be worth it. I played when it first came out and ended up trading it back in to gamestop about 2 weeks later. The bugs were horrible. Always crashing or servers were down. The loot rate for the biggest bosses in the game just sucked. Out of all the times i killed the bosses i only got a few oranges. But yeah it was a good game. Maybe they have worked on it ALOT since i last played. If so i might give it another try.

    4.50 off Amazon during one of the black friday deals. Still have yet to redeem the key though, probably will just sell it or something. Is anyone actually surprised though? I mean the game bombed for a reason, a reason that can't be fixed by releasing a bunch of paid dlc.

    I don't understand you guys.
    You are writing as 2 month of playing a game is bad... Holy shit, 2 month playing the same game is a lot of time O.O Most singleplayer are one week before deleting, 2 months is a shitload!

    Btw, I played the game, finished every dungeon, every secondary mission and every primary missione. I have done at last one time every dynamic events and then I deleted it.
    It was a lot of fun and I have 60 hours on it and I think it's a lot of time for a game like this.

    When they will add more primary missions and new continent I will come back =D

    Are you kidding right? 90% of the DLC content was free for everyone. Most content for paid users are skins...
    yeah, I know, tons of grammar errors. Sorry :-(

    Already checked the drop rate issue. Seems to be the same.

    It's more of just a privilege than a job since you're not getting paid for it but I'm in the same boat. Got into the first wave of beta invites and ended up uninstalling it not long after. I remember trying to play the demo on steam and it would never launch. Had me chuckling for a good 10 minutes every time.

    I did too. Specifically the instances. I could run the same one 20 times in a row and still have fun.

    I def enjoyed the game. Melee build was a blast.

    I was waiting for this to go on sale again on PC. Just got my 360 replaced and almost put it in. Almost.

    Good news indeed.

    I could never do the Arena enough to actually purchase a castithan blade, you always needed like, 30k points to just get bronze, and that only paid out 50 cred to purchase the crappiest one :/

    The major Arkfalls were the one thing I always found were a blast, especially when 50+ people rock up to fight it.

    So you think that Defiance is (overall) superior to Firefall? I was looking for a (MMO)TPS and these two seemed the best choices, but Firefall seems a bit unfinished, and Defiance didn’t have a very good initial reception and since, unlike TRION’s previous F2P conversion, there seems to be a lot of content that is not free (DLCs). So, now that they are both free, what would you recommend as the better game for a mostly free experience?

    BTW, you are free to throw Global Agenda into the mix as well, since is another F2P TPS.

    Is this game F2P or do I need to buy DLCs to gain access to all the content/end game? If it's Freemium then I'll pass.

    1 or 2 of the DLC are required for certain non-story missions.

    And the new factions require DLC:
