Actually started playing this again on ps4, is a far better game then it was. I've now transferred to pc due to the current steam sale and really enjoying my time with it. So much better on pc

Tempting.. downloading Neverwinter again to see if the rubberbanding is fixed. Also tempted to try ESO again.

This could also be a possibility..

It's a tough one really, I mean the gameplay is pretty addictive while now having a loot system that is more similar to diablo 3 then anything else. But it is very grindy (i happen to enjoy that part of it), the dz is a lot of fun if not frustrating at times.

My favourite mode is survival which was a dlc expansion. The only downside to it is it isn't very rewarding once you've finished a round. The fun factor makes up for a lot of that though.

I picked up the gold edition on PC at launch, the news I have seen over the last few weeks has been tempting but I havent had the chance to give it a go yet.

I've also heard eso gaining popularity again.
With all the recent talk of 'Games as a service it's interesting to see some developers stick to a game and improve them over time.

I personally would rather see a paid DLC drop with decent value for money than a new game once it's in a good state. Like World of Warcraft has done successfully.

I actually sold my copy of the division, very tempted to get it on PC for $23 steam sale otherwise about $20 ps4; but my ps4 character had a heap of gear sets already so I'll probably stick to that.

Neverwinter still rubberbanding. I'll leave it installed but I can't deal with running forward 100m and then suddenly teleporting back to where I was. Does my head in.

Picked up the Division from eb games $15, put it in and said 1.8 patch is 24GB.
If only I had @spazmanaught connection, will take 5 hours on my connection...

Geez 24gb patch. Sounds like the entire game. I reinstalled Witcher 3 and it had 20ish gb update. Took about 45mins. First world problems.

Looking in the ubisoft club, says I have 204 hours in game to date.

My gear score is 192, looks like all the maxed items i had are now low. Looks like i best get to killing some enemies.
Played for a little and I forgot how fun the cover based shooting was. @Tweakzero maybe we can get a crew happening again, if anyone else is interested in having a run just msg me on ps4

Yeah I wonder the same. Do I have to pay for the season pass to level up my gear?

Also I hated DZ gank fest last time so is it mandatory to progress still?

DZ Not mandatory. Skillup outlines a little on YouTube, but doesn't explain the expansion content.

You don't need any dlc in order to get the best gear and have an enjoyable time.

Right now resistance is the best form of farming gear and that's free. Out of the 3 dlc released, underground and survival are both good in their own way and worth getting if you end up getting hooked.

The Resistance (hoard/ zombie sytle mode), skirmish  (2v2 pvp) new modes are free with base game, as is the new pier area. Plus entire map gets tier 1-5 scaling according to gear score.
What you need the dlc/season pass for is Survival, Last stand (4v4 pvp) & Underground DLC  (& 2 incursions)
You can get any gear drop anywhere now so do not need to go in dz other than for div tech. But new rogue system means it needs to be turned on and reduces accidents and some trolling

Last night I started at gs 192, did a high value targets and got a gold drop which boosted my gs to 204, I could then change world tier to two and lvl 31 enemies were tough. I did another couple of Search and Destroy high value targets (which were hard!) And got a couple of gear set items and golds ranging from 197 - 238. For reference my original gs 192 was weapons 186, gear mostly 186 and a couple 238 items from first incursion back in 2016.
Picked up a few gold guns 195, more gear over 200. But there is so much rpg customisation that I need to spend an hour playing with gear sets, bonus, mods and weapons to have an effect build without losing too much syngery from my original Tactitan build. I don't want to swap out my m1a or caduecus 186 guns or my skill build but new better gear drops seem better

I wouldn't worry too much about your gear until you hit wt5, that's when the real grind begins.

Also I find the quickest way to get to wt5 is to farm the world bosses, which respawn every 4 hours. There are maps if you google it which show where they all are.

The other way is to find someone who is in wt5 and join them and you'll get all 256+ gs items plus they can drop whatever they get for you. I'm happy to help with that, doesn't take long at all.

I'm playing on ps4 (dreaded starting again on pc) but tbh I'm not in a rush to max gear up quickly. I'll just be happy to be entertained playing this a couple of hours a night.
Maybe having a laugh at @Leinad300 blow himself up with a grenade  :troll:

Grenade wonít hurt me, itís rocket launcher that I am worry about, but none of those exists in the Divison (I think). Lol
