Let's call it an "update", in case you didn't notice what's happening with your game lately. You know, it's impossible not to notice, but let's use some suspension of disbelief because the alternative is that you don't give a crap about this game anymore.
So, the update is that the game CRASHES... A LOT... and it's getting worse.
Basically, any client update or server maintenance made things incrementally worse. I personally went from not having almost any problem in Feb to a mandatory 2-3 crashes every playing session now (2 hours on average). The only positive (if we can call it that) is that now the error seems to be always the same (the infamous "suspended" state and its error code), reported by many players with various configurations and at different stages in the game. Just check your forum and you'll see all the detailed reports. It's happening while playing, while browsing the inventory, in the loading screen... totally random. And it's not related to players' hardware or software.
Furthermore, since the start of this season, our client version is "unofficial", whatever that means. Needles to say, we never got a changelog for that last client "update", besides breaking the game on consoles.
It's baffling how a game could get worse and worse over time. How is that even possible?! What the heck is happening?
Now you are telling us this: "This additional time will allow our passionate development team to deliver the best quality for this new content. Of course, we will in the meantime continue to support the game and work on most pressing live issues."
Great words. What about actually doinf something?
When will the crashes be fixed, and perhaps some of the glaring issues that are year-old now???
I am so surprised! NOT!
Come on, no one was actively working on D2. Those Annex things are just ideas in Trick's nightstand notepad.
So much wasted with crap like GR Fortnite, Quartz and so on...
All I want at this point is to officially end Season "7", and the TU12 game version to be rolled back in. I want to be able to play ONE mission with three other players without crashing.
On a 1-by-1 basis?! You guys high on hard stuff???
It's the same problem for almost everyone here reporting CTD!
Wow, just wow... As others said, this is the latest attempt to buy time (for what?) or to quiet down the issue. If you want to kill the game, just come out and say it / do it. Why slowly and painfully?
I had money earmarked to buy AC Valhalla and FC6... Not gonna happen.
I wish I could refund all the games I have from you, and forget you exist.
Hey groupie, you are so in line with this crappy company (Ubisoft, to be clear; I am not talking about the studio) you keep defending for reasons that I can't understand...
What I said a few (maybe 3) months back is that no one at the Bucharest studio was actively working on The Division 2, there was no clear direction or project stood up... and here it is the end result.
But you keep lying as they do, can't say I'm surprised, again. Do your best whataboutism and picking & choosing, nothing new.
I don't think I have to say anything else, everybody else figured out your deal.
Yes, it's true, The Division kind if ruined gaming for me too.
The reverse is that it also destroyed any shred of goodwill Ubisoft as a business ever had with me. Don't get me wrong, this is not about the developers, despite some issues, it's clear these games are a result of labor of love. My problem is with the Ubi "leadership", or rather the utter lack of it on how it manages the relationship with it's customers, the development direction, and business abilities in general. The ineptitude is just breathtaking.
The bugs and glitches are not fixed not because the developers are lazy, or they are incompetent, they are not fixed because the developers are pushed to work on other things that are expected (by the "leadership" and their echo chamber) to make money. Same goes for improvements or features or content requested by the gamers openly offering their money for those.
The customers and fans are ignored not because the people like community managers are mean or bad, it's because they don't exist, or are stretched thin, or there is nothing to say or do - a result of cost cutting on games that are not generating revenue (mostly because the "leadership" is so blind and inept at capitalizing on what they already have).
Well, if I'm treated like this, I will respond in kind... As an example, I am interested in AC Valhalla, but I won't buy until all patches and DLCs are out, and hitting ~$10 mark for the gold edition. And a similar approach applies to anything Ubisoft...
I have received a Connect "update" this evening which renders TD2 truly unplayable, similar to the situation we had back in March.
I've timed it, and my game crashes every ~15 minutes with the "suspended" error. I can't finish anything I start.
... and yes, I've tried the usual useless steps.
You were supposed to fix the crashes, not to make it worse. Did you all suffer a blow to the head???
Ubisoft & Massive
While this is a nice sum up, there is nothing really new here. These steps will improve game stability and performance (especially if you didn't update your drivers in a long time, you need to delete the game folder in Documents/My Games).
BUT, the crashes will not go away... As many pointed out, the problem is more frequent when the servers are under load (i.e. more players on it) and/or the communication between server and client is more intense (i.e. GEs). That is something we can't solve with Windows or drivers tweaks.
There is an issue on how the PC client communicates with the servers, and how the client deals with communication errors. The latest update attempted a fix, only to change the crash from "suspended" to " not responding" status...
The laziest and lamest way "to extend" the life of the game...
... and if there are no new difficulties or harder stuff (i.e. Legendary expanded to all missions and CPs, and open world), these new stats will just make the game (as it is) way to easy, so when you hit the max, there nothing left for us than to move on to other games.

Still don't know why they decided to go with these old and ugly guns... I mean there are so many other options of modern guns that would fit this universe so well. Also sure that those companies / license holders would have no issue to get some free product placement.
SAI Gry, SIG MCX series, HK416 series and so much more... and please un-dumb the ones you forced to semi-only.
