I'm downloading this again. Hopefully the player numbers will see a boost. I know I can run the missions I need solo but it's so much more fun with a group. I may just start a new agent fresh though.

Had no intention of getting Division 2 but here I am doing the first mission with randoms and having fun. Gonna end up doing it like I did the 1st game, roam and explore and group up for missions.

Is anyone else jumping in because it’s so cheap now? Is there dlc I should get, I know the game has been out a lil while.

I’ll be buying the DLC when it’ll be on sale. Bought this game at release and it left a real bad taste in my mouth. I loved Division 1, but there was too much clunky shit in 2 and getting the right loot drops or getting a build going was crap.

I'm gonna assume you haven't played since TU6 or before that as they added targeted loot, allowing you to farm specific zones/missions for specific loot/brands

And in addition, the new recal system in Gear 2.0 allowing you to store the stats you want indefinitely.
TU6 changes the 5 variables into 4.
also tu6 involved logging in, seeing your taget loot wasn't at a good spot (or non-existant for DZ), logging out
storing indefinitely doesn't change taht you can only recal one stat

So it's been probably over 6 months since I played this. I jumped in a few hours ago and at WT5 it's pretty damned easy. Am I missing something? Is there a higher world tier now? I'm not sure how to make the game more of a challenge.

the overworld isn't very hard but they are adding a way to increase the difficulty for it with WONY.
If you want challenge, do the missions on higher difficulty like challenging or heroic

All sounds good. Did the 2 missions with episode 3 today and will pick up when loot 2.0 drops, don't see the point in farming now when it'll all change then, especially when exotics aren't upgradable but thank god they are adding higher difficulty = better stats/attributes on gear, no more doing heroics and getting shite returns from it.

Not a fan of how sparse in creativity and length these Coney Island missions were, I think the named Black Tusk enemies losing their minds over the radio is a weak way to convey narrative progression while making them look like uncharacteristic chumps of late.

I don't mind EP 3 having narrative hooks for the expansion, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

Finally decided to jump into Division 2 after buying the game at Gamestop a few days ago. I was really into Division 1 back in the day and I do look forward to playing with some of yall here.

Lol I not even attempting to collect loot until the expansion.
If you’re playing anyway, the only loot worth looking at is loot with exceptionally high attributes (40k health, 1000 skill power, 20% headshot damage, 15% weapon damage, etc.) as you can store those stats for recalibration come March. But yeah, otherwise, all level 30 gear will quickly become trash.

Yeah, this game is in a really weird place right now which is why I think they should have delayed and released Episode 3 along side Gear 2.0 right around the 1 year anniversary as a celebration of sorts and then released the Warlords expansion a week or two later.

I really wish they would have delayed Episode 3 for Year 1 until the first week of March and launched it along side Gear 2.0 while launching the NY expansion a week or two later. I just have no desire to play currently.

----------------------------------------------------

Besides that while this is a Tom Clancy licensed game franchise which will keep it somewhat grounded I think Massive should throw some kind of global weather situation in the mix with extreme dynamic weather patterns that could create different weather-types in places you wouldn't expect and/or just extreme storms, etc overall no matter the biome/location or time of year/season. This would quell all the folks clamoring for snow as weather is something the Snowdrop engine does well and I think something like this would just add to the experience/atmosphere.

----------------------------------------------------

Global difficulty/modifiers and the return of Legendary missions is music to my ears.
I always thought they would bring back Survival but with a heavy fog + air toxicity level to replace the snow and cold from Div 1.

If I find gear with those stats should I hang on to them or can you deconstruct and the stats will store?

I would do the Friend Referral as I just started ysterday but I'm on PS4.
PS4 here if you want to do it:

NO! All the DLC missions are free to everyone, year 1 pass people just get it a week early. You would be throwing your money away.
While I agree it's not worth it at full price, (it's currently £5 on psn) the 8 classified assignments and instant unlock of the Specialisations are well worth the £5 imo.
