      When you "flag" a comment, it is the same thing as reporting it or is it meant to show the moderator to look at it?

      Flagging a comment is the same as reporting. We're made aware of flagged comments and deal with them as appropriate. Flagging a comment should NOT be used a downvote or negative mod.


      Thanks for the question!

      Tom Clancy’s The Division Beta

      2 months ago

      Tom Clancy’s The Division, the newest open world shooter/RPG from Ubisoft, just had it’s Open Beta, and while I had a lot of fun with this upcoming game, I did learn a few tough lessons.


      First the positives: the game is beautiful, the gunplay is fun and the weapons feel and sound solid. Some of the movement is a little wonky (my buddy and I got stuck a couple of times), and there are bugs/issues that very well could be because of the game’s current beta status.


      That’s all fine. I’m here to talk about The Dark Zone or DZ.


      Before I get ahead of myself, let’s touch on the story campaign or the Player vs. Environment (PvE) content. There’s almost none in the Beta, but what is there is all over the place. Some of the story missions are very intriguing. There’s one in particular that involves the search for missing person that was very compelling. You search for clues, you actually get worried and concerned about this stranger you’re looking for, and it’s great. Some of the other missions are disappointingly unimaginative. Go here, kill dudes, get key, release hostage. Ugh, this got old quickly. Surely there’s going to be more content in the full game, and as long as it’s not just Pin the Bullet in the Hostage Taker, then it should be fine.


      BD3Pdr2.png

      Now for The Dark Zone, the much touted Player vs. Player (PvP) area. Full of awesome and powerful loots, it’s the place where you make a choice: Will you help your fellow agents in the DZ and fight high-level enemies, or will you be a villain killing other agents and stealing their stuff? I respect the developer for taking a chance and doing something different and interesting with PvP, and initially the DZ was SO fun.


      Rolling in to the DZ for the first night of the beta, we consistently had a team of three or four friends. It was awesome! We ran into high level NPC enemies, we ran extractions, and even hunted down a few rogue agents. There were a few tense stand-offs with other groups of players, and that was an amazing experience. I pre-ordered the game the next day. Even into the 2nd night and the 3rd day, when we were rolling with a big group lots of fun was had.


      On the 3rd night, the cracks in the DZ fun started to show. That night I loaded up with a friend, and as a duo we ventured into the DZ. We had a mission. Recall that I mentioned that the DZ had all the best loot, and in the best the most powerful gun could be bought in the DZ with the DZ-specific currency. On this 3rd night of the Beta, I had almost enough DZ bucks to get this gun. My partner already had hers and she was happy to help me out. After some lucky scrounging I had the DZ bucks to get my new toy, and we only had to make it to the Safehouse in the DZ to buy it.


      On our way to the safehouse, we ran into a group of 3 neutral agents, after passing them on the street, they opened fire and killed us both. Then they camped our respawn and killed us again. This continued for a bit, we’d get caught out, and randomly killed by groups that had more players than us. It ended up costing us a bunch of money and time. Eventually I was able to get the gun, but the pattern we were seeing was disturbing.


      5Sm0n1b.png


      It’s no fun to have to hide. To have to run when you encounter a bigger group, because they might just decide to cap you for no reason. This wasn’t the only incident. A few times my partner got caught out and killed by players, and it happened to me when I later tried to enter the DZ on my own. That didn’t even take into account the spawn camping. Even with a big group, there were times when other groups were trying to goad us into becoming rouge by sending a member of their group to walk in front of us while we were shooting. As well when trying to fight mobs of computer controlled enemies, you had to constantly watch your back lest someone come up and try to take advantage of your distraction of actually playing the game. It’s wasn’t fun, and it was a toxic. Ugh.


      The DZ is all about projecting power, and when you have a big group you are a larger threat that isn’t to be messed with. I get that the rogue agent mechanic is going to be a thing, and it’s discouraging that there seems to be no effort to combat abuses of that mechanic. I can’t discount the fun I had, so I’m going to play the full game eventually. It just sucks that the game area that has the best stuff isn’t practically accessible by singles or duos.


      I’m done with the beta for now. Hopefully the game’s release will spark that magic that made me buy it in the first place. But again, for now. I’m done.


      ALSO HI ILU ALL.

      I was thinking about taking a detour on my way to RTX and stopping in Norman to hang out with you, @darnclem, and @capnbirdman. (and @shadowsflame? I assume you guys hunt as a pack). Would that work? Are you all driving down together? Would it be possible for me to join that carpool? I would help pay for gas and whatnot! If carpooling is not an option, I could still fly.

      Just throwing this out there! Alternatively, this detour could be on my way back to MN. I hadn't thought about doing it both ways, but I guess anything is possible. Let me know.

        Ok @RoadBlock, @darnclem, and @capnbirdman...I think everything is sorted...and I hope it all works out for me. Hopefully on the way back to OKC, you guys can wait for me to eat at the salt lick and then we can leave...if not, I would rather have a ride to OKC than eat a BBQ lunch. :P

        I depart July 8 from OKC at 3:35pm to home.

        So I'm going to Guatemala right before RTX. And the dude booking the flights for the group made a mistake and booked an extra day on the end. July 1 is now in Guatemala...and not meant for sleeping and flying to Oklahoma. I might get a flight booked so I leave a day earlier (the original intended date) or I might flip Oklahoma to be the end of my trip instead of the beginning. So I'd fly to Austin and get there on the 2nd at night probably, then drive back to OKC with you guys Monday. Are you going to the Salt Lick Farewell lunch with RTSQ? If you weren't this might be a problem...

If no one can, I can take a taxi. And then do OKC stuff until we leave on July 2. Wooooooo. Skipping OKC and going straight to MN on the way back.

        I KNOW. I keep saying I'll be in Austin more, but stuff keeps happening.

        If I do make it down and you're still in town, you'll be the first to know. :D

      The Busey/schoolgirl picture toward the bottom is the one I meant. I don't stalk her or anything, so whenever it was that I happened upon her profile this was her avatar. Gary Busey haunts my everything. Dude's craycray.

      if there's someone else i should send this message to or somewhere else i should put messages like this please let me know but here:
      during first person let's plays (halo, minecraft, the ship) it'd be nice if there was a translucent color coded overlay around the edge of the screen so you know immediately who's screen you're looking at without having to glance at the top left corner every few seconds. For example, Geoff always picks orange armor so have a see through orange border around the screen and jack picks green armor so have a green border when you switch to jack's screen.

      These are the books by the authors I was telling you about at RTX. The later ones are some of my favourites, but I would recommend starting at the first one, Relic, and going forward. :)

      I also really like The Rachel Morgan books.

      Let me know what you think!

    Thanks for the question!
