Defiance is a game developed by Trion Worlds and the SyFy channel.
The Earth was terraformed during a war with the an alien encounter. Now, both aliens and humans are working together to restore the world.
What does not
Launching the game. Upon launching, a Patcher error immediately pops up.
What was not tested
Everything past trying to launch.
I tried to launch the game with winetricks I used before, no luck, Patcher error. I tried with just IE8, no luck, Patcher error. I added gdiplus (the window with the detailed error log showed gdiplus near the top) with same results.

(12/9/2016) - Need to install Glyph now. Glyph installs well and works. As for Defiance, if using Wine-staging 1.9.23 it will work for a bit and give the connection to server failed mention. I caould play 9 or so minutes and put the video on my YouTube page.
Old way: I created a new 32bit PREFIX (deleted the beta one) and installed via winetricks: corefonts gdiplus ie8 msls31 pngfilt vcrun2010 winhttp wininet wsh56vb xmllite
