    Mine just went live recently, I checked earlier today and it wasn't there but I was able to redeem just now. Never received an email saying it was ready.

    I can only preload at the moment, hopefully I will be on Friday and can join the clan at that time. My UPLAY account is BassTekCA.

    The Clan is growing nicely guys. After we can level it up to rank 1, we can unlock our Vendor.

    Got to rank 20 tonight before Server Maintenance kicked me off. Hopefully this means some bugs are getting fixed. There is rumor of a 50+ Gig "Day 1 Patch" (that's 3 days late for us customers who paid for >Gold), so given how good of shape the game is in already, I'm hoping what few bugs there are get addressed before the weekend. There is one that halts some of the open world story, and could prevent being able to go from rank 30 to WT1, but it's "known" so we can only wait and see.

    I got a 2400G for a customer that came with this, I did the AMD verification crap on the system and have a coupon code showing under the My Rewards section [of the AMD rewards account I created for myself]. I have no desire to play the game and want to give this to a friend in my gaming group. Do I just give them the coupon code and they have to redeem it on UPlay? Never done this before.

    Finally got the third main mission done and get into the clan.

    I'd like to field some tips here from people for efficient improving/leveling up. I'm a level 9 and that's pretty good considering my amount of play time but I feel like I could improve a little bit more yet. I've dumped some SHD tech for the XP perks to help it along, too.

    Are you all basically taking down one "zone/area" at a time before moving on to the next one?

    I tried to unlock the clans last night, wasn't paying attention, and ended up doing the SHD mission instead. Was too late to do the museum, so I'll have to unlock tonight. That's what I get for running around looking at stuff and getting caches instead of paying attention lol.

    Also got my sound issue (mostly) fixed. Since I'm using a Logitech G933 headset and a G502 mouse, I installed the Logitech GHub software, uninstalled the LGS app, and now I seem to only get an audio hiccup every 2-4 min for less than a second. Gotta say playing this at 4k is a nice thing, even if I had to turn some graphics settings down a notch to get decent framerates.

    Tracking data says stolen by USPS

    True story I went to the USPS to sell some stuff last year that was on ebay. I seen an entire USPS truck full of Amazon boxes just boggled my mind that people don't want to lift a finger and find the stuff locally.

    The tracking data says it was delivered but It wasn't at my door when I got home. I doubt it was stolen by someone as I got home about 15 minutes after the tracking said it was delivered. I also live in a pretty quiet neighborhood with lots of older people that like to watch out there windows all day. My guess is they delivered it to the wrong house but who knows. If it doesn't show up by the time I get home from work tonight then I will have to contact Newegg and see where it goes from there.

    yeah i have that issue here, my shit gets dropped off two houses down while their stuff gets dropped off at my house.. how they keep screwing it up i don't know. my address is 2127 their's is 2117, lol. you can try emailing or calling the post office HR department and they'll check the GPS on the driver for the specific time the box says it was delivered and see if he was in front of your house. but my bet is it's sitting in front of a neighbors door.

    So graphically how does it compare to the first one? I'm a huge fan of the first with all the snow effects but looking at screens from the beta it looks like the 2nd one is too nice and clean looking. It just doesn't have that dark gritty rundown look like the first. Has it changed in the final release?

    It’s still the same as the beta. It’s a ‘vegetation overgrowth’ look instead of the dark gritty snow environment of the first game. That makes it a little more vibrant. The atmosphere has a strong I Am Legend and Walking Dead vibe. It also feels like they’ve increased the duration of daytime relative to night time (I’m glad to see that). All that combines for a different feel. I thought I’d be let down by the new city and different season (summer vs winter) since I freaking loved NYC. That’s not the case, they’ve done a great job at creating another awesome environment.

    So other than the lack of the health boxes you could drop, does this game seem harder than the first to you all? One thing I seem to remember is that doing the side missions usually had you leveled up to the point you were a little overpowered by the time you were ready to go to the next zone. On this game it seems like you need to do everything to really stand a chance in the next zone.

    This game seems to be even more balanced for multiple player than the first. Single player seems just harder.

    Glad i'm not the only one. I've died a few times now and thought I just sucked.

    Maybe we both just suck?

    Is it me or does there seem to be a lot more loot in this one. Granted its been a long time since I played Div 1. Also got my first purple drop today after hitting 9. Only a handful of blues as well.

    Very possible. Just seems harder running single player.

    I don't think it's a stretch to say it's like 300-400% more stuff to open. There's stuff everywhere

    I don't like how you have to go to the safe house in an area to unlock the shade tech in that zone. I keep finding it on the way to the safe house.

    Dumb question: Is there a rewards vendor in this like there was in the first game? If so, where is it/how do you gain access to it? It seemed like they just let you use that Stash inbox and bypassed that sort of thing but maybe I'm wrong?

    I believe you access those from your chest > then you have 2 options it's the 2nd tab> you should then be able to view your rewards (if you're referring to items for pre-ordering). You can then choose to move those items to your inventory...or leave them and transfer them later. Sorry not home now - I will try to update this later if you still can't find it. I'm currently at work and will be finishing re-building my pc...so I'll try to be more detailed once I'm up and running again..LoL. There might be an easier way to access it...just don't remember off the top of my head..sorry.
