    I got through two of the Strongholds last night, hoping to get through the last one tonight and enter World Tier 1. I've solo'd nearly all of it because of the Armor scaling bug when friends join you, so I'm looking forward to WT4/5 so I can finally start playing with you nerds. They will probably have it fixed by then anyway.

    The Clan is full, this happened much faster than I anticipated it would. I'm a bit disappointed not everyone got in, but I knew it was a possibility. I am going to move us to "Invite Only" unless there are any objections. In a few weeks as people start falling off maybe we will free up some room, we will see. We were at level 9 last night, I'm sure we've surpassed that by now. Next rank gives us an XP boost for everything we do, that should help us gain rank even faster.

    What's the deal with the castle settlement?

    Is my game bugged, or is it intended that you do that mortar mission, and the settlement never actually 'unlocks' and is actually a base you can upgrade?

    I always keep a M60 or 249B LMG on me for the Heavies, this seems to help, especially if you have an extended mag and 1 pc Petrov for the added LMG damage. It has become much more difficult since the Skills bug, since none of our Skills will stay up. The Turret used to be like a second teammate, and the Fixit Drone could keep you just barely in the game. Until they fix these things they are but momentary aids.

    Either way, if I see you on, I will come give you a hand.

    It is not a bug, the Settlement is contaminated by a dirty bomb. I'm guessing they will do something with it in a DLC, but for now there is only a side mission if you find the couple underground beneath it.

    When I logged off a little bit ago we were at level 10 with a 5% CXP boost. I’m shocked the clan is at 50 people. We’re already at the second tier reward cache, I think we’ve got a decent shot at getting to the third tier.

    Thankfully I have a few of these weapons. I like them and I like the SAS-12 (?) Shotgun. Hard and fast but I'm going to switch to one of your suggestions.

    Thanks. :)

    LOL. Poor jiminator came in to help me and I'm a 17 and he's a 30. Guess what? All the enemies scaled up to him. It wasn't pretty. Sorry I couldn't be less of a drag on that one!

    I might even get myself to 18 and get back in there, too but soon.

    Incidentally: I notice when I type a message in the chatbox in game I always have to enter it twice. Anyone else?

    I plan on starting up tonight. I couldn't play over the weekend due to life happening, so I'm disappointed the clan is full. I'm going to join the Gen May clan if it's not full by the time I finish everything I need to in order to access clans.

    In retrospect we should have locked it down to [H] members initially. I also have 2 friends that wanted in. Oh well.

    I feel your pain gentlemen. I had planned to move us to Invite Only when we hit 40 members, but I missed it. The group kind of exploded. There are lots of good Clans out there, and I'd encourage you to find one... that said, I'm guessing we will have some transients that will move on once the hype fades. If and when that happens, we can start sending out Invites to those who are still interested. I would really like to keep the central focus of the Clan from the Forums, but I have friends in there that are only lurkers here because of me. So I understand people wanting to get their friends in too. Unfortunately we have a member cap (wish this was upgradeable) and will have to work within the confines of that.

    I will get you in, in time, if you're still interested at that point, but I cannot give any kind of timeline on that. Sorry guys.

    Is there a list of all the clan perks or boosts you get while the clan levels up? So everyone now gets a 5% XP boost? I like it. This will help grinding through the 20s.

    Just like when you mod your armor\weapons - I believe you click on the gear\skill > and there should be a spot on it to apply a mod. I'm at work...trying to remember..lol. I did apply a roman candle mod to my turret...I'll check and update once I get home and look again.

    All I got to say is I drive a truck and won't be on for one-two weeks at a time but expect me to be online all of my weekend which consists of four days. If that's an issue "activity-wise"? Lol

    Not that I can find yet, nothing on the Wiki even. I will try to make a note of these next time I'm on.

    The bonus XP is CXP (Clan XP), and imroves the rate at which Clan ativities count towards Projects, Caches, etc. It doesnot effect personal player XP.

    Don't worry, I'm not looking for reasons to kick people, that was not my point. After players start to leave the game and become inactive for an extended period (I'm thinking a month), I will attempt to contact them. If I dont hear back from them or they reply saying they no longer play the game, then I will remove them to make room. I'm not trying to turn this game into a chore for anyone, just be conscientious for those who may be waiting.

    --

    One thing we could do is start a second Clan, or use one of our Member's Clans as an extension if they are okay with that.

    Anyone can send me a PM for the clan I created, InfiniteKnights. It's invite only to keep randoms out.

    all I have to say is this fucking sucks. I can't play the game for more than like 15 to 30 minutes as it crashes. I can't even finish a mission now because it just crashes part way through.

    No clue what to do at this point. Tried DX11, forcing some low frame rate, other random shit. rolling back drivers. everything. just fucking crashes with no errors, no nothing.

    Have you been to Reddit yet? I know you are not the only one fighting these issues, there may be a work around, or at least info on specifics and when we could see a fix. Wish I had a better answer for you.

    FYI there is a solid black weapon skin, which is something some of us from the first game have been wanting. I got it from a random box, nice!

    I know this is totally outside your control, BUT:

    How can it be [H]ardclan when such a large portion are randos or people that just joined the forum? Seems I'm not the only long-term member that got screwed here..

    - I was really looking forward to playing with you guys.... (first time super-down to play n commit, had all my ducks in a row, andddd then - snake eyes) :(

    *ends rant about missing the boat*

    I understand your frustration... and I know that sounds cliche, but seriously, I endeavored to start this Clan for those very reasons. I wanted a place where we could all get together. We discussed this a couple pages back and the general opinion was to leave it "Open". I don't think any of us expected it to blow up as fast as it did. I don't know what percentage of Members are random and what is Member / Member friends. Outside of going through the list we've compiled here and talking to each individual member (because not everyone posts, some just check in for the info), I dont know how we'd determine that number even if we did want to get strict about a Forum Member Only policy... and I'm not sure that is what the majority wants. These are, in the vast scheme of a 2-3 yr life span game, growing pains that will be alleviated in time. I would not feel right booting people who have helped the Clan get where it is, and saying "oops, sorry, changed our mind". But I will send out invites as soon as I reasonably can.

    On a related note, I've promoted jmaker to Lt. and several other members to Agent. I will promote more as I get to know more of you.

    Appreciate that, and no, I didn't take it as negative. I would have felt similar. We can still add each other to our respective Uplay friends list and team up that way. We'll get our game on one way or another. (y)

    --

    Also, for the Faction Key farmers:



    These are useful to have before doing missions as there is typically at least one Faction loot box per mission. There is also a hidden room in nearly every mission that you either have to shoot an electrical box, or find a vantage point on a lock you can shoot off... or in one case, find a hidden comparment that houses a secret RFID Card that opens a door it doesnt look like you could open (Bank mission). They've packed a lot of secret goodies into this game, and I love it.

    I think the 50 character limit per clan seems a bit low when there are so many who might want to join up.

    Here's the link to my clan server https://discord.gg/UstXdfE

    You can request invites to the clan from there.

    Thanks. I wish I could squad up with you. You work some odd hours. Hopefully I'll be at level 30 by the weekend and we can group up.

    Also there was a patch earlier today that seemed to rectify that nasty skill self-destruction bug. I was just in game for a couple hours and couldn't recall my skills glitching out so hopefully that's solved.

    After almost 3 yrs of covering recurring vacancies on 2nd shift, I 'should' be back to days with normal weekends by the end of this month. We should get more game time then.

    Also, I saw they released a hotfix for the Skills in today's Reddit update, so hopefully you are correct.

    The Clan achieved a Silver Cache this week, so be sure to stop by the Clan Stash and pick yours up. Should be good for 3 High End items at your level. Nice work all!!

    Also, I made it to World Tier 1 and geared up enough to start in on the Strongholds again. Not looking forward to it this time. Black Tusk is aggressive and likes to overrun me when I'm solo. I'm moving my oldest 15hrs away this weekend as she's being deployed again (stateside this time), so I don't know how much I'll be on the next few days.

    I achieved World Tier 2 and got geared up to 378 last night (so I'm eligible for the next stronghold) and holy shit are some of those NPCs aggressive. Some of those missions are crazy hard, but I've found the matchmaking system to help with the strongholds as its hard to take on 4 elite mobs at once when they are flanking you from all sides.

    This game is highly addictive, according to Steam I put 94hrs into the first Division, so far after a week, Uplay has me at 36hrs. I need help, someone come take my mouse and keyboard away from me.

    I've put in over 20 hours and I've done nothing. I'm only level 17 right now. No idea where all that time when! :ROFLMAO: I think the fact that I've been jumping in to help other people has caused me to not level up faster.

    I tried doing the Dark Zone opener mission last night, have no idea what they mean by scouting it. Didn't matter tho, as I got stuck in the environment (between a fence and a shipping container) with 3 gold enemies about 2 feet away. That would have been a quick death if they could have seen me heh. Couldn't log out, so I had to ALT-F4 out of the game. Oh well, guess I'll have to try opening up DZ East again later today after chemo (ugh).
