I find the ally ai in this game to be pretty helpful, it definitely pays to take control points in sequence so you can quickly get help on the next one. I've also seen groups attempting to complete the rescue civilian side activity by themselves (probably wouldn't have succeeded since it was quite a few enemies to deal with.)

Anyone else having audio sync issues?

My system is set up correctly, so pretty much every other game, TV show, app, etc all have perfectly synced sound, but all the effects in The Division 2 sound like they're behind just a fraction of a second. I can't seem to dial it out with my receiver, since my lag competition is already set to the lowest. It's annoying because it only seems to be an issue with TD2.
Are you on PC? This old fix for Division 1 worked flawlessly for me. Make sure you're at 96000 Hz in settings.

For people experiencing crashes on PC, try turning off DX12. I went from 4-5 crashes per day to zero in the past 5 hours in game. Fingers crossed.

Matchmaking is weird ...

I have been in "calling for backup for 30 min now" I just want to do this side quest with randoms ...

Main Quests have a find agents option but side quests don't
So matchmaking does what you think it would. Calling for backup just creates a ping on other people's maps and they can decide if they want to help or not. I haven't had any luck with that.

Calling for support when you're taking control points is great, because it brings AI into the mix. For side missions it's not consistent.

I swear this game is cursed. When D1 came out I was enjoying it and then my ex-wife told me she wanted a divorce. Now I'm loving D2, me and my sons are in the game room enjoying ourselves and a tornado hits literally 200 yards away and destroys the power lines. I'm lot meant to play this game lol.
Damn man that's rough. Maybe you should avoid Division 3 lol

If I play in the session of my friend, the activities that we do, only counts for him. When I'm back at my session, I need to do all over again. So boring...

Man I am loving this game but the bugs are worse than Anthem. I am not joking. I have 40 hours in Anthem and only had a few bugs. With only 5 hours in Division 2 have had a host of bugs and odd things. Today's new issue, started a new character to play with my wife. Got to Level 4 and all of sudden when to the menu and all my gear has massive stats. My Level 3 back pack was showing 12.5k Armor. Basically all my Armor items where showing 12.5k armor. My Health was showing as 11k, total armor was 112k. All guns I picked up were showing over 10k damage.

I then got bug where when I tried to throw my seeking grenade, it would not throw it. I then could not select my gun. The fix was to hit the menu, back out and then I could use my guns. Trying to use the seeking grenade would be hit or miss after where at times it would no throw and not allow me to select my guns. Going to the menu and back out fixed it. Still have the occasional audio bug where it drops to low levels even out of battle.

Really enjoying the game, but they really should of held it back a little to fix these issues. I have my game on a SSD and have really no issues with texture streaming or stuff loading in, but on my wife's X where it is on the internal drive, I do notice when we loaded in that textures were a little delayed loading in. I know PS4 owners that also have this issue. Hope they fix this stuff soon. Game is great and it is one of the very few games my wife plays and we were loving it.

Whelp, I put over 20 hours into the division before last night's patch, and what I'm encountering tonight seems like a new bug it might have introduced.

No matter where I put my turret, it disconnects and goes away with the short timer within 7 or so seconds after activation without fail. It's basically useless now.

WTF is this Ubisoft? "Failed to validate game files. Please try re-installing the game. If the problem persists, please contact Ubisoft Support." I had to download the Beta twice too. This shouldn't be a thing.

I have the same issues though sometimes the turret does deploy and other times it doesn’t. Goes for both turret and drone

If I respond to a call for help, would the mission / activity the caller is doing be completed for me too?

it may be a coincidence but I stopped using the drone, and have gone through 4 strongholds and some invaded missions with no crashes, but before than I was crashing like 4 times in those large missions

I just noticed something in the world map, this in WT, I noticed there is a green sidearm icon just moving, so I followed the friendlies, turns out they were going to try and takeover a control point, but I never initiated it, they were doing it on their own

I was following them and passed by a hostage situation, we helped the hostages and we went on our way and took over that control point

this game man

The first part is the normalize stats button which I believe is R3 while in your inventory. The second part is most definitely a bug thats on the front of the subreddit. Your skill goes on an instant 15 second cooldown and you can't deploy it. Annoying as fuck.

Holy fuck at the lag spikes and complete framerate destruction to single digits. And when it crashes, it crashes for everyone in the room. Everyone in my lobby got blue screen of error right when the mission was about to end and a buckload of enemies spawned.

PS4 btw. It can't handle all the enemies spawning. If this continues, it'll be a very shit experience.

Last night I got an access key for one of the factions and remembered seeing a place to use it. Logged back in today and it isn't in my inventory in the keys section. Should it have been? Do they disappear over time?

FYI the Firefly, Chem Launcher and Pulse are the only ones that don't bug out so go with those if you're having trouble with your other skills.
