    Earlier in the GE Week there was a "Cheese-it hack" for Dragons Den apparently which meant players in the know could complete the Incursion and get the highest payout in GE Tokens really fast. This was patched but not until Wednesday/Thursday I'm told. I didn't log in so no idea where I finished up or if I got a mask but on the last day I was still running at only 1500GE Per hour mark. BTW - the "hour" calculated is from ACTUAL top of the hour i.e. 7pm-8pm with GE earned used for the ranking. So, best way to maximise GE collection was: 1) Start an incursion before the hour was up, make sure you didn't kill the end boss until just past the top of the hour i.e. 19:05hrs. 2) Immediately hit LZ bosses 3) Farm Lexington or another "fast run" Mission until end of the hour.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Finally got on to Tier 1 for the leader board. So many with the same scores though. Pages and pages. Seems there are a fair frw cheaters in there as well with massive scores that they could not get through 'fair' means. Weekly HVTs are a good way for getting GE creds (hardest are also 750 + looting on boss kills). I also have a 5 piece Deadeye now but still to find the backpack to make the 6 piece. Ninja bag does not helpwith that from what I have read.

    So, Tuesday after work I finally got the invite email to become a Twitch Affiliare. I'm pretty excited about this, as I've been trying for months to create quality content and pick up an Affiliate status. I've managed to fill out all of my forms, set up my bits donations and subs, and added a sub perks panel to my Twitch. I've submitted my emote for approval and am hoping to get it approved before the weekend. For those of you that are free and interested, I'll be running a celebration stream this Friday night, August 25th, from 11p-2a EDT. Feel free to stop by and say hi, I look forward to hopefully seeing some of your this weekend. https://twitch.tv/deadsockpuppet

    Hey guys, So I heard that Division 1.8 is indeed canceled or delayed for now due to Avatar development. I'm putting together a tell-all video for the community and viewers on my youtube channel and I'm trying to get as much information as I can. What does this mean for the division? With Destiny 2 right around the corner, the division player base is getting a big threat. I'm sure once division 2 actually release it will blow destiny out of the water but what does this mean for the division franchise? Also what happened to the movie? Source: https://culturedvultures.com/ubisoft-cancel-division-2-seems-like/

    Yes, they confirmed months ago that Massive was working on Avatar and along with that confirmation came notice that they were hiring hundreds to support Division and Avatar. And they've recently stated, as @quinch1199 mentioned, that they've got TONS of jobs available to cover these projects. I shared this article on Twitter and there were many players and content creators that 1.) said the website's credibility is questionable at best and 2.) that they pretty much feel the game has more to come (1.8 and a sequel) and that this is really just click bait.

    It was noted that the unit working on The Division has had staff moved from there into "other projects" however, they are also pushing on quite a large recruitment drive to back-fill those spots (that part was actually mentioned on the last SoTG by Hamish "we have lots of staff vacancies" or similar). This is sure to cause a delay on 1.8, however they are officially and fully committed already to 1.8 release. That said, I don't see any major patches AFTER 1.8 and its highly likely they'll see The Division as "complete" once that's hit with only bug fix patches after until the next game based on the universe. My opinion is that we won't see 1.8 until Q2 2018 with a follow on game pencilled in for release Q4 2019 at the earliest. Between 1.8 and the new game expect The Division to have plenty of micro transaction items added and potentially cost reduced on the core game drastically

    Saw this pic on Twitter today so I thought I'd share. It has the updated lists for the set bonuses, including the 6 sets for which they've created classified sets for.

    That's right... now, if only I had some Lone Star drop from one of those caches! *cries*

    That was super lucky to get. Very happy and it has ok stats as well. The other caches are not so good today. About 4 kneepads all TA and other items I already have... Lexington seems to be the place to grind but the Legendary give one top cache per completion and I am pretty sick of Lexington now.

    Yet they still drop Blue & Pink items ... seriously, can't Massive just make them drop HE materials instead and be done with it? Civilians who drop a mix of Key fragments & random HE Materials = perfect game mechanic.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    There's no limitation to how many times. However... Weapons : You can recalibrate only one weapon talent. (think it's only one, at least it usually only one). Recalibrating will cost you some Phoenix Credits and consume a Weapons Kit. Not all your weapon talents will be available for recalibration. You'll see a Locked symbol next to the unavailable talents. Normal Gear: You can recalibrate one attribute (either a stat, major attribute, or a minor attribute. But only one). Recalibrating will cost you some credits. Classified Gear: Like normal gear but you can recalibrate one stat and also one attribute (either a major or minor attribute) Having said that. Until you get to end game (level 30), recalibrating isnt worth the credits. So if you're still leveling up from 1 to 30, then best to save your credits. But that's up to you, you may want to give it a whirl.

    Week 2 Solo is another Splinter Cell-ing tasks. One of them requires you to kill enemy only with Headshot. AI Syncshot is allowed as well. The reward is Tier Booster. TF Challenge is to open 24 prison cages within 4 specific provinces only. Libertad, Inca Camina, and two others I forgot. The reward is called Traditional Pants. It's a paid item. Community Challenge is to detect prison cages. The reward is a Patch.

    I've encouraged people to try this out in my latest video... I really feel Survival is perhaps the BEST DLC I've ever played of any MMO game so far. My only regret is that each session has to end... I mean, I really hate having to go into the dark zone and extract, I would love to see how long I could manage in the frozen LZ before either cold or gangs got me and I wish there was maybe a solo version which turns off or greatly extends the infection death clock for this purpose. Also, now with the new achievements there are even more reasons to get on that fated helicopter!
