    What's the playtime on the campaign? Thinking of picking this up but only if it's a decent amount of play time

    IMO the game is phenomenal. You can easily get 200 hours of it. At that point the endgame may become troublesome. But you should not notice that for a LONG time. You don't need to buy the DLC, it only adds game modes (random underground levels, rogue like survival mode, 8v8 capture point and a couple of incursions).

    Depends on you but easily 20-30 hours solo in the single player campaign. Between two characters, mostly single player, some coop and pvp I've got 80+ hours in the game.

    Haha, I'm still going strong with Division. I guess its easier if you have a core group of people you team up with on a regular basis. Build diversity has never been greater than it is now.

    I'm always trying out new builds in Last Stand. Sure its a broken masterpiece, lag riddled glitch fest at times. I'll be looking forward to 1.7

    Steam sale: $20 for the base game. $35 for Gold Edition. Absolute no-brainer recommend for any and all fence sitters.

    this guy is pretty funny, looks like nerfs to deadeye & svd are coming, also nerfs to seeker. a few rounds of that shit and really that was what killed the game for me.

    Wow.... Can't believe what I'm seeing. Are those Zombies? With all the different complaints and their response is Zombies. Alright then, guess I will let this game die in my library after all.

    Zombies? Who the fuck cares about zombies? Whatever it is Massive is smoking in Sweden, they need to stop. [​IMG]

    All I care about is finishing the Aaron Keener and April Kelleher stories, and maybe some new....content?

    Certainly won't happen on this. Not even 100 percent sure it'll happen on the inevitable part 2 based on the stray scuttlebutt thus far and at least one earlier discussion that happened in this thread.

    It's too bad. The game deserved to go out better than this.

    ninja backpack is going to screw exotic item builds in the ass... it will do nothing for them. meanwhile IMO it can make gearset builds OP, example, getting 4 piece & 3 piece bonuses, or 4/2/2 or 3/3/2 or 3/2/2/2 or 2/2/2/2/2
    will be interesting to see if they keep that as is, and if so, what types of builds are possible.

    In a video yesterday someone was showing off the striker 6 piece bonus. basically you heal instantly so you can pretty much face tank most enemies. lol cover based shooter

    I'm pretty sure that's a fan-made trailer, not an actual Ubi/Massive/RedStorm trailer.

    edit: yeah, that's the fan-made one I saw before. Here's the link to the dude that actually made it:

    I was knocked down and lost that 650 points so it could have been 23k. I cleared each and every stronghold in the DZ for the first time.

    I tried 6 piece Striker on Times Square legendary. No way anybody solod that. Those shotgunners rush straight at you and surround you. Although I did make it to wave 4 in Falcon Lost.

    That is a relief, thanks for the clarification. If they seriously put zombies in a Clancy game I was going to lose my shit in their general direction.

    For anyone still playing, the new patch is out. For the others, you need to get on to warframe. It is like diablo with guns. The guns and melee feel really good. It is what I hoped the division would be....

    Played a bunch last night since the 1.7 update, game is really feeling polished. I love everything about the world and design of this game....sadly 1.7 does nothing to advance that. It's just a rehash of the same missions we've all been grinding for years with a silly 1 shot kill mechanism for NPCs....

    So is this it? Is 1.7 the end of the road for this game?

    Man I hope not because I LOVE the game. There is no avoiding the fact that they have no plans to advance it though... :(

    Ha yeah you went on a crazy mat farming spree before you gave up on the game. Impressive credit balance too.

    I've been playing the game since the first beta, with only a small hiatus after burning out during the 1.3 patch. Still a great game imo.

    You just missed the Outbreak Global Event which breathed a bit of life into the game.

    Next GE is Assault with the LMB, it will drop sometime in September and the GE lasts for 1 week.

    Has the single player aspect change enough to warrant downloading this game again? I remember I got bored before. Any new areas?

    there is nothing really for single player if you've already played it. the DLC is just the same thing over and over and over until you get bored.

    the underground stuff is good for a 15-20 minute run through every now and then or just hopping into the dark zone for some gun play.

    The very first underground mission was great.

    You never see those rooms (tiles in the tileset used to generate the "dungeons") ever again, however. :(

    I'm surprised this game is still being supported maybe you can get it cheap now.

    Massive may have taken a wrong turn here and there but their commitment to the game has been great imo. I'm still enjoying it.

    I think they may have realized that their handling of the game will likely have damaged division 2.0 sales. Game still is not doing well, the last update did not generate a lot of interest and I doubt this will.

    I'll be playing both games. I can only take so much of the space theme so The Division will be a nice break from it. I still love the environment or The Division.

    the big problem I see with the game is the rogue system. if people don't want to deal with them then they should not have to. I believe that it has decimated their player base. I hope they ditch the system for 2.0 or at least make it optional like they did say for survival.

    So do I and it's apples and organges but the problem is, at least for me and I suspect others: There's just nothing left to do. There's no point or incentive to continue. Grind, loot up, play the same missions...for what?

    Any of you guys playing the 1.8 PTS? I gotta say West Side Pier is niiiice, I can't wait until we can get on the USS Intrepid.

    New exotics too, buzzsaw LMG, MPX, 417 DMR(I think).

    Glad to see them making the D3-FNC set viable again. That nerf played into me deciding to quit the game. Also nice to see a decent solo player build. As for the rest, it is interesting enough to maybe pull me back into the game... we shall see.
