  1. Past hour
  2. GE Talk

    Same here. Have too wait for the figures from the leadership board. Originally knew I wasn't going to hit T2. Then with the changes I looked like I would. Alas no. So curious as to whether peeps hit the numbers hard and bumped me down. On the up side, I got a ninja BP from one of me Prof caches. So, Rngus, I take back all the blasphemous things I was saying.
  3. Today
  4. GE Talk

    Well, got one I guess...
  5. GE Talk

    Caches gave GE credits. Small amounts but opening a lot of them can help. I finished a Legendary mission just after the hour ticked over and then grinded and got the score I did for that Legendary helped a lot. People have also been doing the missions but not finishing them (I.e. Warrengate not doing the shutdown switch at the end and then when the hour rolls around again then cycle the almost completed missions and finish them all then open loads of caches and do a few quick high value runs to greatly boost their scores. Not my thing really. Would rather do it with ability than exploits.
  6. All I want to say is F Avatar. That movie was total garbage outside of the special effects. I do not understand why they want to make 4 more of them. One of the worst movies I have seen in the last 10 years.
  7. Taking a break

    I took a break a long time ago. I got my money out of the game the first few months. Then it just started to feel like a chore versus fun. Like I said, I got my money's worth based on the time put in, but overall the game was a huge disappointment to me. That is not to say it is not a great game, but I followed the development of it from the very beginning. If you go back and watch some of the reveal trailers from a couple of years ago, the game we got was not the game they were promising. For example, they mapped out all of New York City supposedly. All we ever got was a small section of Manhattan. The campaign was what, maybe 6-8 hours to get through, and they never really expanded on that. Anyone else remember the drones that could be controlled by someone playing on a tablet that got canceled? That looked awesome. I think they thought it would take people longer than 2 days after launch to complete the campaign. I don't think they had a real endgame plan in mind at the beginning. Then they spent the first 60 days scrambling to try to fix that. Don't get me wrong. If it is ever made, I'll buy The Division 2 on launch day. I think I would have loved the game more if I never heard of it before launch and then played it. I just had higher expectations after following the development for 3 years. Anyhow, sounds like you have your hands full with DA. I spent many hours in ESO before The Division. Great game too. If you are looking for something else to try, check out Warframe. It is kind of like a futuristic The Division, but with so much more content and variety. For example, there are 30 warframes, each with different abilities and stats (Something I think The Division was sorely missing. We should have had defined character classes instead of being able to just flick a few options and mod our character to anything we wanted. Just 3-4 of them would have added to the lifespan of the game quite a bit.) Warframe has a steep learning curve, but there are a lot of tutorials out there on YouTube and a huge wiki. The community is great too. Always willing to help. Oh, and it is free to play.
  8. Division 1.8 Canceled or Delayed Due To Avatar Development????

    Again especially with the amount of Return on investment they made when Division launched also apparently the movie with Jake Gyllenhaal is still in planning/development stages. I guess we have to what until its official.
  9. This is my 4th build so far. In this build, we utilize Sentry and Hunter's Faith with the old trust Ninja Backpack wildcard. This is a great tactical sniper build, it's not a one-shot kill build but it still pretty powerful. In the video, I use recon pulse but I switched to smart cover and I have to say sticking in the back with smart cover and providing sniper support it's pretty good in team play. It's ok in darkzone, not a solo build tho. I can solo with it, but that just because I'm awesome lol ha. This is a good starting point for a great build any ideas for improvements let me know. Gamer
  10. This is my third build so far and I have to say D3-FNC and Final Measure working together with the damage to elites and protection from elites is a monster combination. I'm still working on it but I believe this a good starting point to a tank build. We are a long way away from the old Tactician meta where you stack Toughness which was Stamina. So this is the best alternative I have come up with so far. Any ideas to make it better let me know. Of course, it all depends on the RNG gods. Gamer
  11. Division 1.8 Canceled or Delayed Due To Avatar Development????

    I agree those are some valid points but there has been confirmed that they are working on an avatar game and the division development team has been spread all over the place. I just hope they don't put the food on a great franchise and thank you for your info this helped a lot.
  12. Division 1.8 Canceled or Delayed Due To Avatar Development????

    Something else I thought of, Siege didn't hit it off well when it initially dropped, if I remember right. However, it had a dedicated group and the game had been steadily growing and had come back to being very popular. The two games are very different, but it's possible for Division to have a resurgence like Siege, which would almost demand a sequel.
  13. Taking a break

    So, I've decided to take a break from The Division for the foreseeable future. I'll continue to mod and post here and watch/listen to SotG and Division podcasts (to keep in the loop), but I've gotten a little burned out on the game and want to get back into some other stuff. Recently I've started playing Dragon Age Inquisition, as I got that for Christmas 2014 and only played it for like 3 hrs before going back into Destiny and then ESO when it finally dropped. I've been slowly remembering how much fun I had in DA, DA2 & DAO so I'm going to try and give that a fair shake. As I said, I'll be keeping in touch with the game and still stay active here, so feel free to message me or whatnot here if you have questions.
  14. Recalibration

    Yeah, the caps are negligible with how much Phoenix credits and regular credits you can get.
  15. Recalibration

    Coolieo. Hope this helped
  16. Recalibration

    I think they have, somewhere along the line, removed the incremental extra cost of recalibrating or added a very low cap. Effectively, you can reroll as much as you like.
  17. Division 1.8 Canceled or Delayed Due To Avatar Development????

    That's very interesting. I doubt that 1.8 will be canceled, as they claim to already have parts of it in the works (which seemed to be confirmed by ETF Charlie members), but the fact that there hasn't been any talk at E3 yet on a Division 2, it's possible the sequel was canned. Here's some things to consider on this: How valid of a source is culturedvultures.com? Has this info been reported on other sources? I'll admit that I don't spend a lot of time reading through gaming sites, but I'm not really familiar with this one. Again, as I said I don't spend a lot of time on them so it doesn't mean this isn't a legit source. Divison, despite it's faults, was Ubisofts best original IP at release so I would have to think it warrants an attempt at a sequel despite the player base dropping off. With Vivendi possibly making a hostile takeover bid, one would think Ubisoft can't afford to leave money on the table - on the flip side they can't afford to sink a lot of money into something that fails. This could explain dropping a second game and/or the movie - can you say Assassin's Creed movie? Destiny had a lot of issues (similar to Division), but Bungie is claiming Destiny is basically a 3 year beta and that the real game will be Destiny 2, could Ubisoft do the same with Division? On SotG this week, Hamish and Yannick said that Massive was hiring like 200 people to help support their project, such as Division AND Avatar and this is in addition to (I think?) hiring that they've done earlier this year for the same reason. We can only see the job postings, so there's no way to confirm that they'll be working on both projects, rather this is just what we've been told. Massive has said, via SotG, that there will be no more paid DLC for Division and that any future updates, including 1.8, will be free. So, the only money coming in for the current game will be microtransactions for emote and vanity items, not sure how long it will be able to keep the game viable as it takes money to support a live team and dedicated servers for the game. I'll probably be able to come up with more things to consider on this topic, but that's a good start. It's something I've been thinking about and I'm interested to see if more info comes out on it.
  18. "civilian in need"

    So, this changes things, as Massive has made doing this relevant again.
  19. Recalibration

    @Oh. daesu nailed this in his response. When you start recslibrating, the cost goes up each time until you hit a cap in normal credits for gear and a cap in Phoenix credits for weapons. I'm assuming the same is true for classfied gear, but I haven't played 1.7 or the PTS before it so I can't confirm this. I don't remember what the caps are for gear and weapons, maybe like 300-400k credits (gear) and 200 Phoenix credits (weapons).
  20. GE Talk

    I've heard there's a handful of hacks and/or cheeses that allow players to inflate their GE scores to hit the top of the leaderboards and that many (possibly most all) of those in the top tier are there from nefarious means. Massive said on the last SotG that they can determine players that are cheating and will ban them from the game, but that's for hackers, not sure about cheesers since they're not actually "cheating" per se. They did say that leaderboards are just the way they're starting out the GE and that they're working on tying the rewards to something else as a measurement to help reward players for skill as well as dedication and play time (the current leaderboards really just reward play time). They mentioned some ideas on SotG and said they're looking for more, but no ETA on when that might change or if it actually will change.
  21. Gear Bonuses - Updated for 1.7

    From what I remember, though, unless they changed things you can mix regular and classified gear for the 2, 3 and 4 pc bonuses, allowing you to get the benefit of the higher stats (armor and firearms/stamina/electronics) from the classified gear while still maintaining your set bonus as you collect classified pieces.
  22. Global Event Leaderboard Changes

    Just for prospective, this is what the original patch notes had. The Global Event leaderboards have 3 Reward Tiers that define what reward you will get: Tier 1 – lowest reward tier Top 50% - 16% of all players 1 Mask Tier 2 Top 15% - 6% of all players 2 Masks Tier 3 – highest reward tier 5%-1% of all players 3 Masks

  25. GE Talk

    *grumbles* I got 2x Damascus Pakhan and a McSkulls last night. Kind of disappointing. I think my score is about 1100 for commendations. I started to look at it them, then learnt the significance of the "hour". Sometimes I'e been lucky to have an hour to play when I login, so I just got get cray obsessive eyes when I login in and grind grind grind. Hopefully I'l get to look more sometime this week. Not sure how the hour is measure tho. They could measure across logins so 1/2 hour + 1/2 hour in a later login is still an hour. Or purely starts on the hour and runs to the next turning of the hour. Weeklies are good. I found the first half the LZ bosses are nearly (but not quite) as good as Lex. Which should be enough to get tier 1. And I say the first half of the LZ bosses because in the LMB areas you can loose too much time trying to fight your way to the bosses. Though, you may have better routes than me. There's that one boss you can get stuck with 3 r 4 lmb mobs lol. And that Riker boss that you may have to wait for him to arrive. Minutes minutes, all about minutes. Lex is a still a better grind. I've heard people grinding Clear Sky, but you prolly need a good group to farm that. I think I have a 6pc DE, but one piece has really crappy armour. Haven't check my inventory yet. Saw 5 chest pieces of FM, lol. So, might have missed a 6pc in that. Lex is full of my Prof Caches that dropped because of a full inventory. Ah, there might have been a Ninja BP in one of those. But... minutes, minutes, push, push push, reset, reset.
  26. Recalibration

    I'm already level 30
  27. Gear Bonuses - Updated for 1.7

    Yep, for 5/6 - must be all classified. And Ninja backpack only works for non classified.
  28. GE Talk

    Oh, grinding the HVTs as a group is a good way to bump GE credits. Each player does the top few weeklies which are 750 each plus boss bonus GE they drop plus caches you get. They are pretty fast as well. I have done them all on my 3 lvl 30 characters for this week and have opened around 35 top GE caches so far (with mission runs etc as well).
