    It's the best one in recent memory for the price, in terms of looter shooter.

    Yea I gotta admit the game is hands down so much better then Division 1. Now don't get me wrong there are bugs and i still get a freeze here and there, but overall I am very impressed.

    Yea I agree, I really like how they did the weapon mods. Just craft 1 and you have 1 of those for every gun.

    Delta-03 error code disconnect. First issue like this with 30 some odd hours of gameplay under my belt.

    Possible you were just kicked out because there was an update. The game updates whenever you first start it up, and they push stuff in the background pretty often from what I can tell.

    I was reading on the subreddit that the maximum DZ player count is 12 per instance. We should get a full squad together and get some loots!

    and basically had to start thegame over
    this I did not expect, but I'll run with it.

    Really??? what caused you to have to restart? I had a progression bug that I had to open a ticket with ubisoft, but thanks to the internet(reddit) found the work around. I started a 2nd character that I think I found a use for later to redo some of the missions for specialty points.

    New motherboard / CPU / RAM installed and running. Gained 12 fps in the game benchmark. Also changed my uPlay name - I'm Ole_Smutty now . A long time ago I my online combat flight sim handle was "-smut-", and I was known as "Smut" online and in the game biz. So long winded way of saying my in game name has changed.
    Was: TomcatTech
    Now: Ole_Smutty

    I've been getting these momentary stutters after about an hour or two of gameplay. Was running 16GB of RAM - decided to throw in the other 2 sticks of ram to take me back to 32GB of RAM. I took 2 sticks out when I first upgraded to Ryzen due to stability issues, seems the latest bios has fixed that. Been playing all afternoon with 32GB of ram and no stuttering at all.

    Yeah this, still not sure what's going on there, seem to lose points almost as fast as I capture them, still had a great time with a clansmate helping me out, gained some nice gear so all good.

    Our HardOCP clan earned the highest tier weekly clan cache this week. Nice!

    I hear that. I hit WT1 this morning and powered through to WT3 already. Feels like there's still a lot left to discover.

    I'm home again, but after putting in about 33hrs of driving inside of 52hrs. I'm wiped. I will be on the next couple days (Mon-Tues), and did make it to WT4 right before I left, so if anyone wants to do some level 3 Control Point farming for Blueprints, hit me up.

    I'd just get it via Uplay at this point unless you are getting a good sale price. A downside of ubi games bought via Steam and I'm assuming Epic is that you have to run the store launcher you bought it with.

    If you buy it through Epic it's like Steam. You just launch it once, and it'll be added to your Uplay account. From that point on you can just launch it straight from UPlay anyways.

    At the moment all gear is broken, you best bet is all red set bonuses and traits. Do that until you get to 450, then stash any other balanced gear you get.

    At that rate I'm not going to bust my ass until they fix it. I just crossed 30 yesterday and I have not done any strongholds yet. I have all the perks. I have all the skills everything done and unlocked.

    Is it ok for me to start breaking items down for some crafting and upgrades? I'd like to try and get the Lullaby and Ruthless guns upgraded and things of this nature.

    I would say yes, the loot drops like crazy so you will have plenty of supplies. Don't forget you and run missions over and over for farming too. I did that a ton in Div 1.

    PSA if you are dropped a desert eagle side arm put it in your stash, don't sell or break down, you will need it later for the exotic side arm. I haven't come across one yet.

    So random question, once you hit 30 do you have an opportunity to finish all the side missions, etc? I'm probably going to hit 30 tonight and due to some prolonged exploring, I'm way behind on the side missions, haven't touched strongholds, or finished the story missions.

    yes, you have an opportunity to complete all the side missions after you hit the higher world tiers. I hit WT1 last night and still had several of the blue side missions avail. WT1 isn't started until you finish the story missions + hit 30 + do all 3 strongholds.

    Yeah I deconstructed a lvl ~300 one last week. At that time I wasn’t aware you needed one for the exotic. I wonder if the D50 you can unlock on the Survivalist skill tree will work?

    No. I've seen a couple of videos try this and confirm that will not work.

    They've changed it. Running it from Uplay will launch Steam if it isn't already running. I could have sworn it wasn't this way before, that I used to be able to start WIldlands or FC5 without Steam active. I assume it will be the same with Epic.

    I am glad my instinct has been to hoard exotics. I will continue to do so as I do my vacuum cleaner impersonation. ;)

    I just got my D50 from a control point weapon crate... I can't make my mind up now between using it and using the chatterbox. Love 1st world problems.

    We had 2 opening in the Clan today, so I sent out invites to those I know have been waiting. If you are waiting and have not joined another Clan yet, please apply to HardOCP. This will make finding Forum Members waiting on a spot much easier to find. Thanks all.

    These level 3 and 4 control points are freaking hard. I'm embarrassed to say I've died several times while trying to get these. And this was in a group too.

    I’m getting my ass handed to me attempting them solo. I need to gear up, group up with people, or both.
