Doesn't stadia just use the PC version? That's what I thought.

As for how well it runs, it all depends on how close you are to the servers geographically. Someone else's experience isn't going to be the same as yours.

I meant if anyone actually played on Stadia, not how it ran. Stadia runs beautifully on every game I've played. More was curious about how Stadia version was dealt with for crossplay. If it is PC that should alleviate my concerns.


I believe the latest update adds crossplay between stadia and the PC.


Thank you.

I will say this last leg of the manhunt I am getting exotics like others have mentioned. I have Acosta's Go Bag, Sweet Dreams, and something else which dropped all just doing the manhunt. Prior to this I only had Coyote's Mask from the season, Chameleon level 30 and level 40, and Sawyer's Kneepads from the Reanimation exotic cache.

Where is the save game location? I found a spot under Documents/ mygames /Tom Clancy's The Division 2/ was wondering I copy and paste that in the same folder if my save was ever wiped?

It's an online game - there are no local saved game files.

There are screen captures you can save but that's about it.

I never finished the previous "seasons" manhunt and I'm kind of picking away at this one with lukewarm interest. Are the regulars still playing this or has everyone burned out and moved on?

I finally completely bounced off it at the end of season 1. When they also removed the daily login recipe quest, I switched to weekly logins for the exotic cache quest. Did the first week and didn't really see any reason to keep doing it. Then Season 2 launched and I saw it was identical to season 1 and it killed any interest in playing.

I have never been one though for rinse and repeat content really. It is why I always enjoyed the leveling process in MMOs but hate the endgame. I don't have a desire to scale up in difficulty so rerunning content for better gear to I can play the game at harder difficulties to replay all the content just isn't fun for me.

40 is the lhighest. It goes 1-30 and then World Tier 1-5. During World Tier 1-5, you are level 30, but you then have a gear score instead up to 515. It then switches back to levels when you go to NY with the expansion.

My buddies and I are on most days still. I think some of them are on today leveling new characters - Dogfish, Neofite, and Acrown. I'm on and off depending on my work schedule - Themaker387.

Give us a holler in clan chat if you have any questions and whatnot.

So what is considered Meta for TU10?

Also, best AR now? Used a black market AK-M and it hits hard. Still want an Eagle Bearer though.

Raid Operation Iron Horse is tomorrow.

I like the AK's too but the recoil is too bad to deal with so I switched to the (socom or tactical) MK16 variants on my pure DPS builds. Though I'm currently running an ACR-E or a FAL 58 for the better handling, nice slow rpm and the larger per bullet damage. Works great on my DPS skill hybrid Technician build.

I keep thinking about reinstalling and playing again, but the end game loot grind is so bad. Did they fix the modding table so you can change more than just one stat line at least?

Has anyone done the raid yet? How does it compare to the Reagan National Airport one?

Haven't done either of them now. Want that Eagle Bearer AR :(

I've watched a few of the videos of the new raid and it looks like a skill check vs a dps check like the first raid was. Alot of synchronization / coordination or timed events in the new one and not just MORE DEEPS.

My issue with the game is that the raid is an 8 man situation but there are no ways outside of doing ad hoc groups in the DZ for 8 man teams to practice and coordinate. My buddies and I are doing legendaries as 4 man and know each others style since we group all the time but to expand that to 8 man ... is kinda tough. Plus who wants to PUG ... nobody.

There is a RAID LFG Discord group that runs it regularly so might look there.

Another channel that runs them...

State of the Game




This State of the Game focused on the new PVE mode “The Summit”, new gear, and the TU11 PTS.





Priority Alerts
Maintenance - September 1st, 2020

  • Fixed an issue that caused inconsistencies with sniper turret aiming and shooting.
  • Fixed an issue with the Tidal Basin Heroic boss checkpoint sometimes not working.
  • Added Season 2 Level Skips for purchase in the in-game store.

» Source





Title Update 11

Overview so far: Link





TU 11 PTS

The PTS will start September 4th – this Friday – PC only





Content:


  • The Summit – the entire summit will be accessible
  • The new Skill Variant
  • The new Gear




New PVE Mode: The Summit

=> Image




=> Image




=> Image






Goals

The Summit is designed as a replayable PVE game mode that you can jump in and have an action-packed experience that feels different each time. Basically a “greatest hits of PVE experiences that we’ve had so far in the Division”




Features

  • All the factions will be involved in this mode (Hyena, True Sons, Black Tusk, Outcasts, Underground)
  • Legendary Floors (81-100) will have the White Tusk as enemies
  • Environments can change floor to floor
  • You will encounter old and new Objectives – for example:
    • Rescue Hostage
    • Destroy servers to disable hacked Warhounds
  • It should always be a new experience so that you don’t know what or who you will face on each floor.
  • A set of 10 Floors is about a Stronghold
  • The Boss drops loot in equivalent to a Stronghold
  • XP amount that you earn in a 10-floor segment is also equivalent to a Stronghold



Randomization

Just to clear up how much is pre-defined and what is randomized:


  • There are dozens of floor sections with pre-defined looks and layouts that get selected when you reach that floor.
  • They select the Faction that you will face on that floor.
  • When the floor has active Directives, they will select what Directive will be active.
  • So it is pre-defined, but it is randomly selected, what you will face and encounter.
  • Spawns are also random.



Process

=> Elevator Floor 1




=> Elevator Floor 21




  • You start by approaching the elevator
  • When you play it the first time, you can only travel to the first floor
  • From then on you need to clear The Summit floor by floor
  • Every 10 Floors you encounter a boss level, that will unlock a “Rally Point”
  • For example, once you have beaten the boss on floor 10, you can use the elevator to reach the Rally Point on floor 11 next time and continue to play from there. (So you don’t have to start at floor 1 each time)
  • As you work your way up The Summit, you will encounter floors that have normal / hard / challenging / heroic / legendary (floor 81) difficulty and the higher you get the more difficult it will become.
  • It is up to you, what difficulty you want to play because once you have unlocked the Rally Points, you can use the elevators to reach the different floors.
  • For example, go to the Rally Point on floor 51 and continue to play on heroic there.
  • Once a Rally Point is activated, they stay active and you can return to them at any time you want.
  • You can return to the lobby after you have killed the boss on the different boss levels
  • The Global Difficulty is ignored – the floors define the difficulty
  • The Summit is accessible on the New York Mega Map



Checkpoints

=> Floor Map




  • As you go up the Summit, you take an elevator every third floor
  • These are also the checkpoints.
  • When you die or wipe on your journey up, you will restart at the last elevator you took
  • For example, when you die on floor 8, you will restart on floor 7
  • That also applies to Legendary Difficulty.



Matchmaking

  • You will be able to matchmake by difficulty
  • You basically select a difficulty and then you will be placed on the floor with the other players.
  • You can join other players on higher floors



Access

Free for all players that own the Warlords of New York expansion




Targeted Loot

  • Targeted Loot is active and the assigned Targeted Loot will apply to the entire Skyscraper regardless of what floor you are playing.
  • That will be tested on the PTS and then see if that will be changed



Scalability

  • The Summit is built to be completed solo
  • So the content and the difficulty will scale to group size
  • The legendary floors will also scale, but you have to be very good to complete those floors solo.



Rogue Agents

  • Rogue Agent encounters can occur at random on different floors




TU 11 – Gear

Belstone Armory Brand Set


=> Image




  • New defensive Brand Set
  • Survivability and self-sustain as a theme




New Named Gear Pieces


  • Perfectly Efficient(Chest Piece)
    • Using an armor kit has a 75% chance to not consume the armor kit.
  • Perfect Bloodsucker
    • Killing an enemy adds and refreshes a stack of +12% bonus armor for 10s.



Season 3 Gear

Shrapnel Trap


=> Image




  • It is both a defensive and an area denial tool
  • You can throw it and then it creates a minefield of Shrapnel Mines.
  • If you quick-deploy it, it essentially acts like a claymore mine in a designated direction.




Hunter’s Fury Gear Set


=> Image




=> Talent




  • It is up-close and personal Gear Set
  • Players that want to attack NPCs up-close
  • Once you kill the NPCs you can regenerate armor and health
  • You also apply a debuff to the NPCs in the area
  • Those are personal buffs and not group buffs




Kard-45 Pistol


=> Image




  • Standard and Named Version
  • The Named Version applies +1 Skill Tier when you are holding it.




SIX12 Shotgun


=> Image




  • Standard and Named Version
  • The Named Version gives you armor on kill




Exotic Backfire SMG


=> Image




=> Talent




  • As you are shooting the gun, it stacks Crit Hit Damage until 200% in total
  • When you reload, you apply a bleed to yourself, and that damage scales with the number of Critical Hit Damage stacks that you have.
  • 200 stacks remove all your armor
  • Hazard Protection helps to mitigate that damage
  • This exotic is on the Seasonal Reward Track




Exotic Memento Backpack


=> Image




=> Talent




  • It rolls with all three Core Attributes
  • When you kill an enemy, they drop a trophy that you can collect
  • When you collect a trophy you get two buffs, the first buffhas a short duration (10s), but the buffs scales with the number of cores that you have on your gear.
    • All red build => 30% Weapon Damage
    • All blue build => 120% Bonus Armor
    • All yellow build => 30% Skill Efficiency
  • For every Trophy you get a second buffwith a long duration (5 minutes)
    • For every Stack you get
      • 1% Weapon Damage
      • 1% Skill Efficiency
      • 0.1% Armor Regen
    • Max 30 Stacks
  • Skill Efficiency is a new attribute similar to Weapon Handling – it does many things
    • 1% Skill Efficiency is:
      • 1% Skill Damage
      • 1% Skill Haste
      • 1% Skill Repair
      • 1% Status Effects
      • 1% Skill Health



The Summit Gear

Exotic “Ridgeway’s Pride” Chest


=> Image




=> Talent




  • This is an Exotic Quest that you unlock once you have reached Floor 100 of The Summit
  • Once you have completed the quest, you can craft the Exotic
  • It applies bleed to all enemies you shoot within 10m
  • Good synergy with the new Hunter’s Fury Gear Set




TU 11 PVP Change

PTS Phase 2 will focus on PVP


  • Resistance Mods get doubled (20%) that will also help in PVP against the new Gear Set
  • Riot Foam base duration is lowered from 3s to 2s
  • Firewall burn on armor break talent – the burn effect is removed on PVP
  • The changes to Pistol, Rifle, and Marksman Damage that were done during 10.1 Server Patch will be changed.

More will follow





Rainbow Loot

There was an update after last week’s State of the Game:


TheDivision2 PSA: After further consideration, we will lower the on SotG suggested 100% chance of the first random attribute matching the core attribute color (to reduce rainbow loot), because of the impact that has on build flexibility. That new value will be tested on PTS.

Tweet







Season 2

The Titan League is now active.

So I managed to score a Bullet King exotic for completing floor 10 on normal difficulty of Manhunt WONY season 3. It has some decent rolls, and I can't complain, but holyshit is this LMG mad fun. Combine it the new gearset Hunter's Fury and you're in for a good time. I am still playing around with the build but this may pull me back in.

For those that have WONY and have completing all 100 floors of The Summit, is Ridgeway's Pride exotic chest piece worth the grind?

I just start playing again, not sure what to think of the changes. Last I played was before they changed all the skills and stuff.

I'm trying to play again after a bit of a break...but the game keeps freezing up on me after about 5 mins of play. An image (of the Division 2 screen) will literally be frozen on my screen...and I end up have to reboot my pc (ctr+alt+del doesn't work so I can end task) to kill it and try to play again. The only thing I can think that might have changed since I was playing 3 months or so ago was that I might have OC'd my 8700k a bit...it's a somewhat mild oc compared to others...only 4.7ghz...but everything else runs fine.

I think it can do 4.7 on turbo mode normally...but I have it for all cores.

My first things to try would be:
- close OSD apps (MSI afterburner, etc)
- update drivers
- verify game files
- if none of that fixes it then try removing your overclocks

I'll give that a shot, I don't think I had any OSD apps running at the time, but I'll make sure.
I believe all my drivers are completely updated..
I'll see if I can verify the files using Ubisofts client..

yeah, my last ditch effort will be to reduce the OC....although I thought I had it running @ 4.3 before....which is still a mild OC.

thanks for the advice!
