  1. My word. That modern.... I'm surprised.
  2. Seems their servers are down so I cannot login. They helpfully inform me with a website banner after I log a support ticket (not before) and state it will be for 4 hours with no start time. Does anyone else think these people are hiring at the lowest possible price point....
  3. Just finished Napalm on legendary on PTS 3. Took maybe 1.5 hours. None of use were heavily optimised I would guess. Shotgunners were a little bit of an issue (we stated with just 2 players, with 4 players they are not so bad). I got stuck on a barrier (stuck on ladder type bug) and had to kill the game but managed to join the same team on re-login. The big boss fight was tough. The bosses kept laying health stations, sometimes where you couldn't get them, and I ran out of ammo on my FAMAS, Pakhan, Historian and almost on my shotgun. Luckily I managed to restock. It was tough (I have finished it on PTS 1 & 2 in legendary). It was great the whole group stuck around to see it through though. The Historian is truly broken. It is not working as intended at the moment. It seems to be doing 5* firearms as explosive damage most of the time for me. I have Firearms of around 5k and it is doing around 25k explosive damage plus tiny initial hit damage. Any other gun is pretty much better at this point.
  4. When I finished it on PTS1 i took the shield and stood tgere with my 93r with Toxic and took potshots, dropped health stations around me (seems the MG went for those first) and only had to drop down for the last couple of waves. I was using strikers but with around 150k skill power. After the first 3 mini-bosses the MG blows up totally. The last boss is just a massive regenerating bullet sponge. We had 1-2 people taking on the respawning waves with 2-3 people trying to wear the last boss down. Not sure how it is in PTS2 as i have not got past the electrified floor room :-). Been playing the legendary missions more and building my second agent for Last Stand.
  5. Servers just shutdown. 28s notice before they went offline. Wonder if someone hit the wrong switch .
  6. Have you had the scoreboard at the end show less than 8 people on each side ?. My last game only had 4 player on my side listed and 5 on the opposing side. I didn't see that many players running around so would not be surprised if that is the case. 4 way comms only is disappointing.
  7. Shame they didn't do it with the gear as well. I would like to try out the Seeker set. I have only found two pieces so far. Have found the Times Square mission pretty tricky but mainly due to the shotgunners wave (6+ shotgunners all charging very fast). I have got past it finally but it seemed more by luck than tactics or skill. Napalm Production Site uis becomming a bit 'run of the mill'. Still some bugs moving on from defending the tanker and seems the immu station cannot revive people sometimes. Have also seen people hit a non-revivable state as well. Health statuons and manual revival just fills tye green bar and then the bar resets and fills up green again. Played another round of Last Stand. My mic was not working and it was 4 of us against another team of 5. The game was already running when we joined as most of cgeckpount A was captured by our side. We lost. I got 2 kills, 2 assists and died 2-3 times. Not a bad game.
  8. Copied from the round one thread as we have a new thread for round 2 now. PTS has refreshed. Terminal Vendor has Exotic caches for FREEEEEEEE....... Recalibration is also free. Update: Interesting. All FAMAS become exotic called Bullfrog. Elect shock room seems significantly harder. Immuniser station works fine but needs coordination in the team. I tried with randoms around 6 times and have not completed it. Vanity items are free at the vendor. Vanity item credits can get gathered in Last Stand. I had a run and it was pretty intense with 8 vs 8 vs AI (low level) but we got hit with a Delta error before the end and we had no team coordination.

  10. Armour damage in PvE is still very relevant, to the point that they are degrading bonus Elite Damage to minor and upgrading Extra Armour Damage to a major stat. Seeker may be an interesting set with Marksman rifles or the MDR. PTS is down for weekly maintenance for 3 hours... Live system is not really fun for me any more so played for 30 mins and just logged off. Guess I will try the PTS tomorrow.
  11. Yeah that was my thought. People spec to get high skill and then get punished with slower cooldowns. Maybe I misheard or they explained it badly. I did replay that part of State of the Game a couple of times though. Also, armour damage will become a major stat rather than a secondary stat. Running strikers I have 60% armour mitigation but they were unclear if the mitigation already on piece you own gets moved to the major or if both major and minor just get re-rolled. If the second, that will suck big time.
  12. @quinch1199 let us know how you find the boss of the final section with the minigun. .
  13. They are adjusting the support stations as they have seen the see the ease on the PTS. Seems they are changing the skill cooldown as well. More skill power then slower cooldown. Not sure i like that one :-). No date on the next PTS build yet though.
  14. Strange thing is they are saying that if you get stuck outside, let the team die and restart so you ca get back in the room for that incursion mission. They completely miss the point that you should not be able to get stuck outside in the first place . Better not to engage with those sort of people. They never seem to see the point what with their head being too firmly wedged up their own arse. Everything just looks brown to them .
