    I havent unlocked the clan yet but Im so enjoying the game. I just made it to the theater after about 2.5 hours because there was just soo much fun side stuff to do. I scooped out and found just tons of extra story plus loot just wondering around. I'll probably unlock it tomorrow. I liked the first one but this one is miles ahead for me.

    Stryderxx joined my game earlier, that was fun. If anyone wants to join my game whenever, you're always welcome.

    Noob question, what are these notebooks, utensils, etc I'm looting used for?

    So is the match making just broke as hell for anyone else? I'll select it on a story mission, it will ask if I want to join another group, and if I say yes it has like a 66% chance of throwing me in a group that isn't on that mission.

    The only use I’ve found for them is you can sell them at vendors for a small amount of credits. Other than that I don’t see a use for them.

    Happens to me too. Sometimes I stick around with the group and help out with random stuff but more times than not I just leave and keep matchmaking until I find a group actually playing the mission.

    When you get to a Vendor, under the Sell tab, you'll see an option at the bottom right of the screen to "Sell Trinkets". If you forget to do it for a while, it can turn into a decent sum.

    Yeah I saw you join up on me last night. At that point for me I was just running around collecting SHD caches in the Southwest. I saw you die and was coming to revive you but I had to retreat a little ways from our encounter.

    Like someone said earlier it's probably best to group up with people on your same level. I'm only level 14 but it feels like I'll hit 30 before I even reach the left side of the map. There's so much to explore, doing all the side missions, going underground, hitting the control points.

    One more thing I want to add here. Has anyone done the Agent Edwards Support 'side mission' yet? Not sure if it's random or it pops up at the same time for everyone but once you see it, just freaking do it. Stop everything else and go to that mission. No spoilers here, you'll thank me later. :)

    Lol... You were such a higher level than me but I figured "what the hell" and tried to hang in there with you. I think shrapnel from a bullet hitting the wall behind me took me out. :ROFLMAO: It was cool though and I got some good loot from that quick run.

    If you're running a ultrawide display, just a PSA to customize your HUD layout:

    Is Dx12 broken? When I enabled dx12 some part of the game the contrast is over saturated.

    Or if you don't really figure that out to say... level 2x... you can have like 3k! :|

    Not on my screen. It's fucking gorgeous.

    I want to follow up something: Earlier in this thread someone said that clan members will see other clan members via color coding if they call for assistance? Because if not I was wondering if we should do the [HOCP] or some equivalent thereof in front of our screennames for fast, easy reference? I do turn that feature off if I know I'm going to be in the middle of a story mission but when I have it on I don't want to miss a summons from a clan member.

    Thanks. I have an ultrawide, but haven't messed with the HUD layout yet. This looks so much cleaner.

    Not sure if this is what you’re talking about, but during the open beta when I used DX12 indoor spaces would slowly get brighter until eventually it completely saturated the screen and you couldn’t see anything. It was a known bug and it’s fixed (for me) in the final release.

    holy shit had a blast playing last night with a bunch of randoms. Started with the first mission and we ran around like morons for like 2 hours. Was an awesome time. DAMN this game is black though. So many corridors i went down and i couldnt see shit.

    My video card finally showed up. Mailman took it to the wrong house and the person was gone so didn't see it till a few days later when they got back. Claimed my code and got the game installed. Cant wait to dig into it this weekend.

    This game is much more polished than division 1. So far really loving what they did. So much more secret areas. The game feels much more alive the the first one.

    I hate to say it. Good job massive studios.

    The game only allows 3 characters for the tag, no more, no less. I was a little bummed about this because I had planned to just do "[H]". Either way, I have the on call function muted also, but that doesn't effect anyone on your Friends list from joining you, or you joining them. We just use the "Social" menu for that.

    So I ended up getting the standard edition of the game this morning, loaded up Uplay and the game started to download its 40 something gig files. It finally completed and I was able to get in and set my character up, controls etc. I thought once the game was downloaded, there was another 48gig "Title Update 1" I need to download and an additional 2 gig "Title Update 1.5" for audio issues. My Uplay never downloaded any of the additional 2 patches. How do I verify my game version and if I'm up to date?

    Sorry if this has been answered, but is performance better than the private beta? I don't want to download the game (or install EWplay) only to find I have to make it look like a blurry jagfest to be playable.

    This may depend somewhat on your set up. I didn't run into any issues during the Betas, and the full game runs smooth on the rig in my Sig. I have heard of frame rate drops on Console, but haven't heard of any significant issues on PC. I'm running "High" settings @ 4k and I think the game looks great, for whatever its worth.

    8700k, 1070. I was just hoping some optimization has been done since I last played, but I also understand that I'm going to have trouble running new games at 1440/100fps on my aging hardware.

    My uplay is eruditefacade if anybody - or others starting late like I am - want to group.

    I watched the HUB video. Volumetric smoke is an FPS killer. You can get a good 25-30% more fps going to medium without much visual loss. Just a heads up

    I have to start watching these videos. I've just been wandering around doing random stuff. I did run into some crazy gold enemy with a freakin' chainsaw! :eek: I ran for my life and was finally able to drop him after a few minutes.
