    So far, so good... optimised a couple of builds and I have tweaked my tac build a little. Might be a waste of div tech but it's what I use for legendaries etc. resistance is fun and I'm finding that my striker build works really well...the stamina buff has made a difference. i used my DT then opened my exotics..managed to get a house with deadly and responsive, chuffed. Got all the other new weapons but not that great rolls. And about 12 Barrett's and too many bliss holsters. Most if it got deconstructed, but you get DT so that a bonus. Need to get back in the dz and get some more... im enjoying it...

    DZ is the best place to get classy during non GE ... clearing landmarks/bosses . Play with a squad and share loot. Yesterday I got two striker bits, reclaimer and final measure plus a couple of exotics.

    OK, I still have my XW8400 - and I got a GTX970 for my son - so I will post if the CPU (or PCIv1) was really the bottleneck. Honestly I don't know, but suspect it is. My Ryzen and gifted GTX970 run everything at "high" at 60FPS solid - perfect for me. (and what my old monitor can support) And my son will be here in 11 days - we will GAME! I will update. ...gene

    As HawkShot noted, its the evolution of the DirectX interface from Microsoft. Try both! In settings for graphics there is a setting to enable DX12 - try it. If it works, keep it. If not, go back to the (IMNSHO) more stable DX11. And GOOGLE! Changing certain settings can have a huge impact. Also if you have a current gen (read GTX10xx or Vega) go for it, if not, still test it but do not be surprised if DX11 is better. On my GTX970 - DX11 works best for TD, DX12 works best for Destiny 2... So go figure. ...gene

    Maybe as a paid option. I like characters tho loadouts work well for me. If they were to add a for more gears maybe then an extra would make it easier. There are going o be people like you that like have characters for particular builds.

    Hey TWSF, DirectX is really just an interface to send instructions to the GPU. DX12 being the newest version of that interface. Now, I personally have never seen a performance increase from it, but some people describe up to a 20FPS difference from DX11 to DX12. Assuming your GPU supports it, of course. Research whether your GPU supports DX12, and if it does, maybe give it a shot, and see if you have any performance increase.

    How you finding it? I found with my DivTech hitting cap, I need to open Exotics slowly as I optimise stuff, so as not to waste any. Maybe it's not a big deal but still. So far, mostly Shortbows... It's probably only worth me optimising classified gear. Until I open all my caches, I might get better exotics than I have so, not point optimising them until later. In the DZ, I noticed two separate people who seem to want to go rogue on me but guessing the could find the switch, lol. I could here one guy of proximity chat grumbling to himself about how to. I won't get to try the new content until after my break.

    Yeah bug drops everyone in to WT4 after the update. Gearscores are related to the 'quality' of the items. The quality is now a lot more granular. Gloves weapon damage has changed from actual damage amount to a % but apart from that I have not noticed any changes but then I have not really been monitoring. Have found three loot caches for classified gear chances (one for each Resistance map). Think there are more though. Running a 5 piece reclaimer for resistance now which seems to work quite well. Have got a few classifieds from Resistance loot boxes, one or two are actually usefull.

    OK, not happy All toons were set to WT4 - took 30 min to realize that. Gear scores changed - all toons above 256 before doing anything - to me that is BS. It means that this drop was not part of the main game design. Gear stats "seemed" to have changed - not sure, but RPM, damage, effective range - you name it. My perception (mild complaint). Environmentals - close snowflakes seem to be bigger - seem - other non-tangibles seem different not better or worse, just different. Only done a walk around as RealWorld has intruded. Again - not happy. But ... More testing ...gene

    They have laptops around yo uhave to stay by to scan. Look for the icon in the map and it will pop up once the round starts. We failed on round 18 as the scan target was behind a locked door :-(. Tried the Underground yesterday. The new directives are ok. The matchmaking is much easier as more people are playing. The hunter loot is the same as for other bosses in my experience so far. I have yet to see any classified loot apart from one loot box in Powerhouse which gave me a Deadeye classified I already had.

    I still need to play some more before I make up my mind. Resistance was fun, basically GoW Horde and I had a good time with 3 randoms. Still figuring out the new gear (no classified gear yet) and GS. Ran solo DZ for like 45 min and didn’t see anyone, so I could farm some bosses and a supply drop easily.

Resistance is better than week 1 PTS but with players all going their own ways with the SHD credits it is hard to consolidate.

    UPDATE 1.8: RESISTANCE - PATCH NOTES 12.04.2017 12:00PM New feature: West Side Pier West Side Pier is a completely new area accessible for all agents where two new game modes take place: ‘Resistance’ and ‘Skirmish’. In the zones, the enemy factions are teaming up to take the fight to the Division agents. The West Side Pier map stretches over two named zones: Piers North and Piers South. A new safe house will be available named Camp Clinton. Camp Clinton will act as a new social hub, similar to the Terminal, for Update 1.8. West Side Pier features a new dynamic spawning system for enemies, new special assignments, and daily assignments. West Side Pier Commendations have been added. New feature: Skirmish In Skirmish, two teams of four agents compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the timer expires. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy agent is eliminated. Agents can start a Skirmish session from the Last Stand matchmaking gate in the Base of Operations or Camp Clinton. PvP rank (previously called Last Stand rank) cap has been increased from 40 to 99. Last Stand and Skirmish both contribute to this progression. New PvP rank rewards have been added, including Classified Caches. Skirmish Commendations have been added. New feature: Rogue 2.0 The Rogue system in the Dark Zone has been overhauled for Update 1.8. To go Rogue, the agent needs to toggle their Rogue status before being able to do any damage to friendly agents. Any member of their group can choose to also go Rogue or to leave the group. Manhunt levels and objectives have been added. Agents reaching Manhunt status will now have an objective to interact with, which will reward Manhunt Caches. Non-Rogue agents will see the general area of the Manhunt objective and will be rewarded for stopping the Manhunt agents. New feature: Optimization Station Gear Optimization provides an all new way for agents to invest in their favorite gear and achieve the perfect min-maxed build for their playstyle. Agents can take any of their gear to the new Gear Optimization station and spend Division Tech and Credits to improve the quality of the item’s stats towards their cap. New feature: Resistance The update introduces a new PvE game mode called ‘Resistance’ where factions are teaming up for the first time to fight against Division agents. Enemy NPCs continuously spawn in waves as the agents try to survive for as long as they can. This new PvE game mode takes place in three arenas in West Side Pier. Agents can start an event from the map or by walking to the arena locations located in West Side Pier and initializing the event from there. Resistance Commendations have been added. New feature: Underground changes The old Directives have been removed and replaced by new ones that bring new gameplay options. Electro Tech – New electro-tech gives the player vastly reduced cool-down on skills, however a side effect of this experimental technology causes disruption to other electrical systems while a skill is activate. Adrenal Healing –Agents are granted a constant adrenaline boost, restoring their health, however the extra intake means less frequent use is available for all healing abilities. Kinetic Armor – Experimental new gear that increases Agents armor as they increase their movement speed. Armor protection is significantly reduced when static. Compensator – Experimental tech that gives all weapons extra stability when firing down the sights; however due to weight of this tech Agents have decreased ammo capacity. Shock Ammo - Specially designed magazines allow for permanent shock bullets, but with constant fire this can cause it to be unusable for a short time and potentially shock the Agent. The Underground will now have checkpoints. Hunters have been added to the Underground as a random spawn. When they show up, there will always be one more Hunter than there are agents present. Slain Hunters have a chance of dropping Exotics and Classified Gear Sets. The Rave Room from the End is NY mission has been added to the room rotation. New Directives panel added to the Tactical Operations Center. New quick launch options in the Tactical Operations Center for Daily and 3 Phase 5 Directive Operations. Underground Daily Operations and Weekly Assignment information added to the map. The Underground has been given weekly assignments, and will reward a Weekly Cache which contains an Exotic.

    I noticed when I go into my settings to change my screen from windowed to fullscreen (which is annoying by the way) I noticed an option to Enable DX12 Renderer. I was wondering, what is DX12 Renderer and what does it do for the game?

    Let this be guidance to us millennial's when we have disposable income. Buy 16:9 monitors. Or whatever is current then. Lord knows. We may have pet robot monkeys by then.

    I just want the tactician set to be honest, predator and nomad seems like they are going to be the meta builds ....I just want to use my boom stick. what is a little disappointing is that they have made two sets that are really op and screwed up shield builds for the non D3 players. Right now I really like the build diversity and hope some sets get a bit if a nerf to balance the gear sets out. we don't need the alpha bridge brigade again...😂

    Not sure if 1.8 you can calibrate non Classified up to Classified. Bit harsh that those miss out on higher gear because they missed a GE. It's not just getting the 6 piece talents. Classified has better stats, defacto gear score. I'll miss GE 3. But at least I should hit GE 4 which has more preferential sets. But still...

    I have OBS and I used it to capture. I have lightworks for editing. I am a N00B with both. Future plans call for a youtube channel for babyboomers like me with a tech focus. I am assembling base gear ATM - PC is updated, but I have a 16:10 monitor - I at least need a 16:9 to match what most folks have. And I need a reasonable 1080p standalone camera. A reasonable studio mic. This should be fun once setup. I see very little focus on my generation - and we still have more disposable income than anyone else. ...gene

    Hey Agents, Thought I would talk a bit about a program here in the United States today, and hopefully, get some opinions on what you all think about it. Especially veterans. From my experiences, the older vets (WWII, Korea, Vietnam) all really like us, but so far, vets from onwards, such as the Global War On Terror (GOWT) are not as big of fans. Anyways, let's start. JROTC, or, the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, is a federally sponsored program by the U.S. Armed Forces. Each branch of the military maintains a corps. And yes, even the Coast Guard. But I believe the few that exist (as far as I know, they only have 2 or 3 units) are in Alaska. I may be wrong. Moving along. It's offered as a high school (secondary school) elective, typically lasting only a single period, and lead by retired veterans. One an Officer, the second an Enlisted. At least in AFJROTC, we call the Officer that SASI (Senior Aerospace Science Instructor) and the Enlisted the ASI (Aerospace Science Instructor). I myself have been a cadet for the past nearly 4 months now. C/AMN Scott, Flight F, Squadron OH-20052, AFJROTC. Each branch puts their initials in front of JROTC. AF being Air Force (Yay Chair Force!), A being Army, MC - Marine Corps, N - Navy, you get it. Also, regarding ranks, and addressing cadets. The C/ of C/AMN stands for Cadet. AMN = Airman, an actual USAF rank abbreviation. We do not hold that rank, we hold the cadet equivalent to it. Cadets are typically addressed as "Cadet", but by other cadets, it varies. Some units address each other by rank, but the majority just seem to do last names. I personally tend to address the cadet officers by rank. A question I get asked (and I assume many other cadets get asked) a lot is "Are you going into/are in the military?". Although we are in a program funded by it, no, we are not. We have no contract, service obligation, or anything. We are simply cadets. Now, if you do (some say serve, but again, some veterans do not like us saying that) 2 or more years in it, and decide to enlist in a branch, then you will get some benefits. I understand the wiki page says 3-4 years, but that is incorrect. I have heard, however, that each branch may handle it differently. This is what I know though. 2 years will get you E-2, and 3-4 years can get you E-3. I have heard that it is slightly different for the Marine Corps, and that it takes 3-4 years to get E-2 with them. A friend of mine did 2, and he has enlisted in the Corps. So I will check with him on that. Another question is if we get military training, and what do we learn from it. Military training, yes, and no. Is it like Basic Training? Absolutely not. But it will help you do better there, and obviously, once you graduate from it, you may get advanced rank. But this is not a mile run for PT every day, or even every week. It is not firearms, or tactics. It's not hell week, it's not anything near that. It is typically the more formal part of the Armed Forces. I'm talking marching, rank structure, uniform wear, courtesies, and for myself, also astronomy, and leadership and communication. There are teams, and guards you may join however. Armed, and unarmed exhibition, Honor and/or Color Guard, Raider Teams, and I have no idea how many units, if any at all, have air rifle teams anymore. I know the majority do not. I'm trying hard not to drag this out too long, so if you have questions, I will reply, but I'm trying to give a brief overall of it. To end things, I'll say what it's personally allowed me to do, and what I think of it. I haven't been in long, but some highlights have been being selected for my squadrons Raiders Team (Which is a physical fitness team), doing Color Guards, community service, parades, ceremonies, and using AN-PVS-7 Night Vision Goggles (I call them NVG's, or Nods, for short). My personal opinion of it, is that it's full of great experiences. Your under the supervision of veterans who have served 20+ years, and trust me, they have a great amount of knowledge and wisdom. Once you've been there for awhile, you can really start to look up to them, and be mentored even. That, in my mind, is invaluable. If you're looking to enlist, defiantly a good choice. Get a little ahead of other people, and go in with some knowledge that others won't have yet. If you don't plan to serve, you can still get some great experiences from it. You can even get scholarships. Which, nobody will really turn down. Any questions, opinions, or comments, are welcome!

    To answer @Oh. daesu from this thread: http://www.thedivisionforums.com/topic/4832-what-gpu-for-at-least-50fps/?tab=comments#comment-28448 I currently have not taken any medical courses since Spring. I was working to become a certified EMR (Emergency Medical Responder), but the state of Ohio prohibits me from becoming so till I am 17 years of age, and/or am in my last year of secondary school. So I have to wait till next year. I responded to one medical incident back in October, and have dealt with suicidal and depressed individuals in the past, however. If you haven't read by posts in the past, I'm looking to commission as a Combat Rescue Officer in the United States Air Force. It's Tier 2 Special Operations that aeromedically evacuates wounded soldiers and civilians. It's one of a couple reasons I am interested in emergency and trauma medicine.

    I personally prefer the load outs over multiple characters. Having the load outs allows you to have different gear setups to more easily swap between activities. With load outs you could go from Incursions, to DZ, to boss farming and then on to Last Stand with the same character. If you use characters and have like one for PvE, one for DZ and one for PvP you’d have to deal with swapping characters and the rejoining your group to do this - much slower and annoying.

    Developed by Massive and Blizzard and published by Ubisoft for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, The Division of Overwatch is a first/third person shooter RPG that is also a crossover between The Division and Overwatch but also features characters other franchises such as Fallout and Call of duty. Plot The city of Boston has become divided with no one not knowing to trust their own government or not, and gangs taking dominance in different neighborhoods, factions coming into power and mercenary groups setting up bases throughout the city.With all signs of law and order failing, Overwatch has been called upon to help restore order to the now crumbling city. However, at the same time, another organization has surfaced. The Strategic Homeland Division (The Division), a government organization made with autonomous sleeper agents from around the world has been activated with the directive of maintaining order when all else fails. As a Division agent, you are tasked with a responsibility of restoring order to Boston, or let it fall into chaos. Classes After completing the training and tutorial, players then have an option to choose a backstory for their character that determines what class they get.Soldier - Has higher health and damage resistance, and proficient at light machine guns and shotguns.Abilities: Ballistic Shield - Spawns a deployable shield that can also be set down to absorb damage before breaking. War cry - Increases player and companion damage, and take less damage for a limited time. Recon - Skilled at fast mobility and free running, has lower health, and proficient at submachine guns.Abilities: Speed boost - Increases mobility for a limited time. Decoy - Creates a holographic decoy to distract enemies. Reflex - Slows down time to make shots more accurate. Scout - Skilled at stealth, pickpocketing, and lockpicking, and proficient at sniper rifles, marksman rifles and silenced weapons.Abilities: Cloak - Become invisible for a short period of time. Decoy - Creates a holographic decoy to distract enemies. Medic - More oriented on healing and defense, and well rounded at most weapon types.Abilities: Heal - Instantly heals you and your allies when close to you. Healing Station - Deploy a small station that heals you and allies within its radius. Smart Cover - reinforces an area of cover that adds boost to defense. Engineer - Skilled at hacking, and well rounded at most weapon types.Abilities: Turret - Spawn a miniature turret that covers a small field. Seeker Mine - Spawn a mine that seeks out the closest enemy before detonating. Pulse - Emits a radar pulse that reveals and highlights all enemies within range. Gameplay Players explore the different neighborhoods of Boston, as well as underground sewers and subway tunnels. Different locations are discovered throughout the world, and when found can be fast traveled to at anytime. When engaged in conversations players can choose different dialogue choices which can affect the outcome of the conversation. In one-on-one conversations with a major NPC, players must successfully persuade the character to his/her favor. Players must read the character's body language and take their personalities into account. Certain NPCs will remember your choices which will be bought up later on. These choices will affect how the story will play out. Players can also take on side missions which include solving a detective case and tracking down a serial killer. Morality is also taken into consideration. Whatever action the player makes them lean from true agent or rogue and this affects how certain NPCs will treat you throughout the whole game. When in combat, players can engage the enemy in different ways. Either by engaging them head on, using stealth to take them out one by one, or by using a non-lethal approach. Damage is based on the weapon in hand, what armor the character is wearing, and what part of the body it protects. Shoot an enemy on a specific part of the body and it will impair them. Shoot at their arms and they will be disarmed, shoot at their legs and it will inhibit their movement speed, and headshots are lethal. However, players can also suffer limb damage so equipping body armor is essential. Different pieces of body armor will have different effects in terms of protection and mobility. These are determined by weight and bulk. Weight affects movement speed, while bulk affects how fast players interact with things. Wearing heavy body armor will offer greater protection but at the cost of mobility, while lighter body armor will have less protection but keeps mobility. Players can also craft different items such as ammo pouches to hold more ammo with materials found throughout the world. Attachments can be equipped to any weapon such as sights help with accuracy, and grips and compensators reduce recoil. When reached a new level, players can spend points on passive and active skills that not only increases their character's stats, but will also unlock passive perks as well. These include reduced flinching when attacked, less explosive damage, increased resistance, aim down sights faster, and faster reload speed. Stats Vitality - Overall health Endurance - How much damage the character takes Strength - Overall melee damage Agility - Overall movement speed and reflexes Willpower - Character focus and stamina Skills Marksmanship - Overall handling and accuracy of weapons Stealth - How undetectable you are from enemies Medicine - How much medkits or bandages will heal you Speech - How effective you are at conversations Hacking - How successful you are at bypassing a terminal, computer, etc. Intelligence - Knowledge of crafting materials, log entries, etc. Perks Hardiness - Reduce flinching when hit Sleight of Hand - Reload faster Dead Silence - Make less noise when in stealth Scavenger - Find crafting material from fallen enemies Blast Shield - Reduce damage from explosions Tactical Mask - Become more resistant to flashbang, concussion, stun, and gas grenades Steady Aim - Increase hip fire accuracy Fast Hands - Swap out weapons more quickly Quickdraw - Aim down sights more quickly Players also encounter different factions in the game. You can ally with them if you wish, however some factions hold some disdain over others and killing some members or completing missions of another faction will make you an enemy to that particular faction.

Suicide Bombers - Enemies strapped with explosives that can do serious damage when they get too close. They are indicated by a bomb icon. Heavies - Big burly units carrying a light machine gun or a flamethrower that can absorb great amounts of damage. They are indicated by a shield icon.

Each companion has their own like and dislike and these are affected by your actions. Players can give squad commands to each companion and depending on their affection, can either obey or disobey a command. Players also have the option to flirt and romance companions if they so choose. Maxing reputation with a companion grants players a unique perk, stat bonuses, and even unique side missions.

    I like micro-transactions that are clear and provide, for the buyer, good value. The current gambling exotic caches are bogus and as Lt Buzz noted, probably illegal. I am against overt 'power' purchases as that is the real benefit of, er, well - gaming. I noted a few in another post that I would buy (yeah, spend real money). I am sure there are lots of really cool things people would pay for that are not related to the power of the player - but the purchase has to be I want x, pay y - not pay Y and hope for x. ...gene

    I agree as a paid option. And I agree that if they add more gear sets then it would work. Since they are adding Classified Gearsets, that's how I got the idea. The prices couldn't be that ridiculous, maybe $0.99 for 1 character slot, so on and so forth.
