Re: The Defiance Thread - News about the Show and Game

Yeah, apparently it isn't one of those things like EVE Online (which I only know about because I read an item about it a couple of days ago) where it's just an open world and the players themselves shape events. It's more a kind of game like Star Trek Online or the defunct City of Heroes where you just play through a set of prescripted scenarios in order to reach a predetermined goal. They wouldn't be reckless enough to have the show's events depend on something as random and unpredictable as the interactions and choices of thousands of players -- including trolls, hackers, or whatever you call people who play MMOs with the deliberate intent to sabotage others.
