    Yeah I turned volumetric fog and shadows down like the HUB video recommended. Jumped from 65fps to 89fps avg in the benchmark.

    I'm not trying to ignore anyone. :)

    In game I saw some greeting messages from other clan members and I pressed / to respond. I typed in a response and hit enter and then typed something else and hit the clan button. I never saw anything so I have no idea if those messages went through or not.

    Was I doing the correct thing?

    Some of the videos are useful over all, but most will really come into play after we've gotten into World Tier 4 (and eventually 5), so there's no rush. Enjoy your game. Btw, that Chainsaw dude, who I've run into 3 times now, still scares the crap out of me. He has brothers that run around with a huge 20lb maul. You get trapped in a room with them a couple times during the missions. Lot's of "oh shit" moments ensue, lol.

    Got a Bravo-04 error :cry: Can't launch the game. Ubisoft servers must be maxed out.

    Probably. Ran into that a lot during the first day of the Open Beta. Hopefully they are tooled up and will be putting more Servers on as needed. Ubi has got their flaws, but they've been pretty good about supporting their games & game launches.

    Here is my benchmark with everything maxed on dx12 and vsync turned off. What do the cpu/gpu percentages mean, is a higher number or lower number better?

    It's the avg load on both your GPU and CPU, generally you want your GPU at 100% and CPU as low as possible as that means your getting full use of your GPU and not being bottlenecked by the CPU. I run a 9600k@4.9ghz and a GTX 1080 and have no problems full loading my gpu with ultra settings @ 1080p

    If I enable a max fps @60 i only use about 40% CPU and 50% GPU.

    Unlocking the frames I use 60% CPU and 98% gpu and get an avg 80fps

    For those of you just getting started wondering when and how to access the Clan feature, here is a short guide:

    1. Do intro Mission
    2. Do Grand Washington Hotel Mission
    3. Do Jefferson Trade Center Mission
    4. Do Viewpoint Museum Mission
    5. Go to Theater Settlement, upstairs to the Progress table, recruit Grace Larson
    6. Go to Base of Operations, go to East Wing and speak to Grace again to Create, Search or Join a Clan.
    From this point on, you can access the Clan Menu at any time from anywhere in game. If you are interested in joining HardOCP's Clan, either search for it via the Clan menu, or PM me for an Invite. Happy gaming fellow grinders.

    Clan level 7 reached which upgrades the clan vendor to offering 10 items for sale. He’s got some pretty decent stuff!

    So I got booted out of the game and am in a vicious cycle of queue and loading which never ends, what in the fuck.

    So I noticed a few things, in the white house the recruitement pane will always say there is someone new even if I did not recruite someone new and this behavious seems to happen to some other panes too.

    Also I broke a mission when my internet crapped out last night, I was nearly done but when I got back I was at the white house and when I went back to the location I was at the start of an empty mission location with no NPC to open the door for me so I can't progress anymore unless I find a way to reset it or maybe it will reset itself in time no idea.

    The world does seem more dynamic then in the first game which I'm not sure is a good thing as I'm easily distracted :D

    Lol, I was up until like 4am playing and saw us hit level 7. Probably a waste but bought a couple pieces from the vendor. Feels like my guy isn't as squishy now.

    Screenshot (1).png Screenshot (2).png This alright for 1440p folks?
    im gonna run it again with shadows to to medium instead of very high and volumetric lowered as well.
    And the clan name is hardocp? im not good at searching forum posts cause im a noob
    Edit: changed volumetric to medium, shadow quality to medium, particle density to high and the game looks essentially the same, turned sharpness down too cause it was defaulted to 10? +54 on the core off afterburner, cpu at 4.6 stable, 3200mhz xmp profile on the ram(gskill ddr4) lol

    Had the game suddenly freeze, choke, and crash on me. No codes, no fanfare. First thing I'm going do: Switch out of DX12 mode. ;) (If updating GPU drivers doesn't help)

    Don't forget to do the Uplay store weekly achievments. You get free store currency to buy shit from the apparel store. If you aren't sure where to look, hit Shift+f2 and you will see the challenges/achievments.

    Right now I am working on 3 that will get me around 450 of that currency (I ain't paying money for that shit). Nice little bonus they added in. I am close to the 100 kills with a pistol!

    I didn’t realize the currency you get from those is for apparel. That makes it more enticing, I’ll probably start actively trying to complete them. Thanks for the heads up man.

    There are at least a couple people in the Clan that are not from the Forums and just stumbled upon us. Talked to one of them, and he may come check us out as he's just as into building PC's and gaming as we are. Personally it does not matter to me, I didn't think we were trying to build anything exclusive, but you guys can chime in if you think leaving the Clan "Open" is a bad idea. If we start to near 50 members and it looks like we will not have enough slots for Forums members, than I may look at inactive players and re-evaluate from there. I have run a few other Clans over the years, so this is nothing new. My point is, if you have input let me know; I'm no dictator.

    I say leave it open, the more the merrier. Games typically have a playerbase fall-off some weeks after launch. If that happens we might be glad the clan was left open during these initial weeks while people are still actively looking for a clan to play with.

    This is what I am thinking as well. Just like to make sure I'm not making any assumptions on how the rest of the Forum is feeling in the process.

    --

    EDIT: This is one of those videos where you think it might be useful for the new guys, but there will be no new info for you... and then you learn a huge new game mechanic you had no idea about.



    We all run solo from time to time, this should help you out:

    I've clocked in 10 hours of gameplay since Friday night. I've enjoyed it thus far, other than the occasional program crash. I ended up missing the 1st bounty because of it. Anyone run into a similar issue, and any suggestions to fix the problem?

    BTW, I just joined the clan -- Forum Name: CPCEleet | Uplay Name: spykedchris

    Had a really cool session with two [H] members and a friend of mine. The difficulty ramps up big time when you play in a team but it's much more fun.

    Adding myself to the list if you like - Forum Name "RanceJustice" UPlay name "RanceJustice".

    I'm just getting started as I didn't play very much of the The Division 1 . Is it thematically connected/story wise? It seems to take place in DC instead of New York like the first game, so I don't know how much of continuous. Likewise, I saw that the original The Division offered badges and whatnot to unlock special content in The Division 2, which is neat for those who enjoyed the first game; I wonder if they will continue to be available for the foreseeable future and if Div1 will still be somewhat popular?

    Overall I see many similarities to the first title at least superficially, which I suppose is to be expected. I am more than a little concerned about the huge item-mall for cosmetics though. Yes, they may be cosmetics but there's just a TON of premium for pay content for not particularly "micro" prices, even for those who own the Gold/Year1 Pass and/or Ultimate Edition. Are there ways to acquire the premium store currency or content through play somehow (a la Assassin's Creed Odyssey) or is it purchase exclusive? In any event, it seems to be way too much content that should in my opinion be earned through play and/or unlocked to be earnable with the purchase of content packs like the Year 1 season pass instead.

    Aside from that, it seems to be a classic sequel iteration that is recognizable and expands game systems and content alike. I'll have to get a better feel for things after spending more time in game.

    It definitely seems that way. Really feels like ages since there has been a loot shooter that can be called good without needing several "except this part" statements.
