Hey everyone,

We experienced a series of network issues last week related to a piece of hardware on our side and external factors. We’ve worked hard on resolving them, and we’re happy to let you know that we’ve just installed new hardware to help manage these recent issues better.

Now that things have returned to normal once again, we want to provide everyone who logged in during the issues with a heartfelt “Thank you!” for sticking with us through last week’s challenges.

If you logged in to Defiance between November 9th and 12 PM PST on the 22nd, you will receive 5 days of Patron status and 44 Loyalty. These grants may take a day or two, so please hang in there.

Thanks again for adventuring with us in our many worlds.
Now, let’s get back to gaming!

We are bringing Defiance (and all Trion Worlds games) offline for maintenance tonight. This downtime will allow us to swap out a piece of network hardware that started running into issues earlier this month.

We'll come offline at 11:00 PM PST (7 AM GMT) and expect to be back online at 1:00 AM PST (9AM PST).
