well tu15 dropped and ubi decided to make things worse by making a f2p weekend for division 2.
so far today i have had:
game not freezing but getting stuck at 100% loading. alt tab fixed that until
game dumped me to menu with delta 3 error and for no good reason turned on menu speech to text in order to irritate me more.
then i got into base of operations and bought a gun, put it in stash for my collection of AR and tried to leave base. none of the gates would open.
dumped to menu delta 3 error.
final try i tried to leave base, gates wont open, tried to quit game, had to kill it with task manager.
its not my connection to servers ubisoft. its your servers would have been near maxed out with your new update because ppl wanted to try expertise and countdown. now the servers cant cope at all with a free to play weekend on top.
i say this here not to hijack thread, but so other people know its not worth making any reports on the freezing issue until 16 may.
@xmdead i am unable to connect to division 1 servers. same exact error. i am guessing the game is down, but no way to tell ubisoft. i hope they extend the public event as a result of this outage. i am connecting direct from ubisoft connect and not using steam at all. but there is no server status for division 1 because they want everyone to move to division 2 and play that.
of course i cant find anywhere to check division 1 status not division 2 which i dont like and dont play. nor even find any link now to maintenance posts, so i have no clue whats with that. division 1 only got monthly maintenance; i doubt they are doing maintenance by choice in the middle of a global event. otherwise they need to extend the event by a day.
i dont like division 2. setting was their first mistake; empty city in an empty world, post apocalypse. there wont be any power or organised govt so no ISAC so no agents. gadgets wouldnt work. there wouldnt be the gang factions, because everyone would be growing food in susbsitence farming. travel would be impossible. the black tusk wouldnt exist. then after you do the final mission, the map is filled with action. that in itself is welcome but it is so jarring that this empty world can suddenly feel so full of enemies. you cant have it both ways.
so the whole premise of the sequel doesnt make sense and thats the first problem i had with it.
second is warlords dlc. making a dlc impossible to return from and locking the extra levels behind killing the bad guy at the end locking away the stuff you paid for doesnt make sense. i have ZERO desire to play the dlc i paid for, and certainly wont buy any others after that fiasco of being unable to kill keener. i ended up deleting that trapped agent and then i didnt play so long i uninstalled the game. remove the inability to go back to washington and level up if you cant complete warlords.
3rd with division 2, the uber classes. they listened to the Call of Duty clowns who whined about there being no specialisations for the pvp. because CoD players dotn realise CoD style games are not the only way games can be. these are the same people in both division games who when i tell in dark zone 'not interested in pvp' say 'well dont enter the pvp zone' because they assume thats what it is and dont bother reading up on the games, so dont understand anything like pvevp areas. if it isnt fortnite/CoD then they dont get it.
the beauty of division was the ability to flip 'classes' and complete customisation at any time on skills. the uber classes (if they worked, and they dont) fix that in stone. you can only upgrade one of them fully. you lock your agent into one uber class forever, only allowed 4 agents and there are about 8 ubers. i know they are 'revamping' them but the best plan would be make the div 2 basic system more like div 1 and scrap the specialisations altogether. revamp is code for 'we messed it up'.
oh and the system for linking up with other agents is bad in division 2. matchmaking never worked. by the time i responded to a call for aid, there was no agent there to aid. i gave up trying in div 2 early on. division 1 did it better, but last time i tried matchmaking in division 1, started the mission in div 1 because waiting to find other agents just didnt happen. so i wound up soloing all the missions yet again because of low player numbers in division 1.
but since division 2 is their baby now, division 1 can have servers go down and all we can get is server status for division 2, which is apparently fine. although i notice that i keep losing connection to these forums, which worries me. maybe the whole of ubisoft is currently being attacked, or they have a massive hardware problem.
