  1. this is not a yes 😉
  2. Yes. Once at level 30 you will be able to earn points for specialization. Not before. You won't even be able to open and look before then. ...gene
  3. First - we are a fan site. We have no affiliation with UBI, Massive or anything. So what I say below is MY opinion, and I have lots of those 😆. According to UBIs EULA this would be a prohibited cheat. Anything that provide more intel "in game" than the game itself provides (they have a lot of lawyer gobbledygook) in essence is a cheat. But hey, its your money - all they can do is ban you. ...gene
  4. Hummm, this is in the right direction.
  5. Yes, I saw that. I have not played since the patch. Too many things to work on in WarFrame. And I am still burned out. But I do plan on seeing what impacts to my play this patch does. ...gene

    Prime Shield

    Interesting. I got this once it was activated. I would check the official UBISoft TD forum and post there. ...gene
  7. I am sure the email is auto-generated, but I did get one imploring me to play The Division 2 more. Interesting, Steam has never sent me anything when I stopped playing through them for months at a time. ...gene
  8. OK, this can be 'solved' - you can carry '1' extra round. So if you have 7+1 and and fire 2, reload, that will take the extra round and you'll be able to pick up just 1 (not two), reload and pick up another for 7+1. It does not happen all the time, but generally happens when you don't empty the gun. at least for me 😉 ...gene
  9. So, this is great, but... I am not seeing anything around fixing my issues with NPC toughness or item drops or being able to get a raid going. I will give it a shot and see. ...gene
  10. Yeah, it would really be an impact to have talents update the recalibration score. But hey - they put the slider in there, its just not working for weapons. I am sure Massive/UBI will make the game better. But some of the new direction with this new game just takes away from the flavor and fun I had with TD1. ...gene
  11. Absolutely agree. It's not about actual play, its about bragging rights. Yeah - its more about the satisfaction of a max build that works. In TD1 this was pretty obvious and I had several different gear sets with a couple of max builds that worked well. I like that approach, but as I really don't PvP... And in the DZ GS is not shown, or is it? ...gene
  12. I resemble that remark 🤩 +20 ...gene
  13. OK, ASRock acknowledged receiving my MB, but now an engineer need to inspect it - 4 to 7 days. Do they really expect a customer to be without a system for weeks? So some good,. some not so good. I still commend ASRock for the RMA, but the timing needs to be in hours not days. ...gene PS I am sure they are kicking themselves for not including a HUGE BIOS chip. I bet they fix that for the top boards like the Taichi. It's a $2 part.
  14. OK, as a baby boomer - I played PONG in a bar! <snicker> ...gene
  15. First, with the news below - I will highly consider ASRock again, and as I loved the MB, probably a 1st/2nd choice. I now know what is up (the sky)! OK, so here is why... AMD, evidently, has serious updates for each generation of CPU, so much that the original BIOS memory in at least all first gen MBs is WAY to small. No X370 BIOS can contain everything. While I am unsure of others, all MB manufactures had to make choices on what to support. So hence my dilemma. And with the announcement that AMD will not support PCI4.0 on the X470 and below, I will be selling the RMA once it is returned. maybe - lol. It still may be a cheaper path to upgrade my son. Time will tell. He (and I) 'want' to have him remain Intel - and that works for our future plans, but there is the money thing.... So, ASRock gets my vote - buy them, the RMA was a very good thing for everyone. (And I assume this is so common I will get back my original MB.) 'news at 11' ...gene
  16. OK, I was going to leave this alone, but WTH - why the sarcastic, derogatory tone? I like min/maxing my toons for my play style. I like having a 'visible' maxed GS. This is fun for me. And after all this is a game. Part of this game, for me, is maxing out. While not the only part - this is one aspect from TD1 I wish had crossed over. As noted in another post - having that 'max' GS is boasting - and hey - that is also fun. I still see plenty of toons with a GS lower than 500. This hidden recalibration score just does not provide the bragging rights that I enjoy. Don't get me wrong, talents and attributes are extremely important to the play of TD2 - your attitude is what I call into question. ...gene
  17. wholly crap - you're old like me 😁 ...gene
  18. That is not my point. NOTHING I have on any weapon mixed with any other weapon moves the recalibration score of any weapon. I spent over an hour working through all combinations. And while I agree that talents do not contribute to recalibration score - IMNSHO they should 😎. ...gene
  19. BAH! Nothing about the extremely spongy NPCs. Nothing about the 'average' gear drop. Nothing about recal of weapons. The first was hilarious. The second was fun for solo up to Threat Level 3. The third - good fix. ...gene

    Sapphire Pulse Vega 56

    So I will not be buying anything Sapphire again. First the good - they responded to my issue within 24 hours. Really good. And follow-ups were equally as fast. But that is where the good ends. The bad: No trouble shooting assistance. Constant questions on my build - I gave then DXDiag full listing when I sent the first ticket. Questions on is it only this game.... More than once. No GPU BIOS qusetions, or upgrades/changes. After almost admitting it might be hardware, nothing. I RMA'd to Amazon at week 3. It's gone. Benchmarks with this make/model showed 90FPS+ for 1080P on ultra. I could not get 60FPS, and was low 40s when things got interesting. I was only getting 2FPS more on high from the Vega 56 as my GTX 970 in the benchmark. At $300 its a steal - but the support Sapphire provides, while very quick, sucked. Lesson learned. ...gene
  21. Cool as with others, the weapon recal is just broken. I thought i was stoned when I went for it 🤣🤣🤣 ...gene
  22. OK is am confused - lvl 60? I will admit I don't do conflict. ...gene
  23. OK< it's essential that you walk around the white house alot. I too was a bit confused for a while, but its just a part of the game. ...gene
  24. OK how did this VEEEEEEEER off the RAID? Guys come on... jeeze - without a way to matchmake the RAID IMNSHO is limited to a very small audience. ...gene
