But tell me just why does it has to be reset?
this is a brilliant part of the game that is severely overlooked , more rewards and a persistent rank could do wonders for it ... and the game itself in return.
stop wishing that people get punished , that is just a selfish attitude that also reeks envy .
all i hear is , they have more exotics than me , they have more health than me , they have more *insert whatever* than me...
if you were worried about the overall health of the game and its playerbase i would give you a bit more credit , but no , its all envy and the will to see other people get punished because they have something more than you.
and for gifting me with eagle bearer, ravenous and almost all the materials needed for the regulus after only one run of each raid , you guys really rock , a great and fun group that carried me all the way through even without a mic and making me laugh all the way!
and naturaly a very special thanks to @V4MPiR1 who made this all happen in a couple days notice, you´re the real MVP.
Thanks guys , it was sure a tough ride , assisted roughly nearly 1k agents to get here , that is a lot of people.
had the usual dumb dumbs that get revived and kick you or disconnect , the ones that arent able to see or respond to a simple chat message and all the other less pleasant situations , but i also had a lot of thankful players who were more than happy to endorse me and whished they could do it more , teached a lot stuff , gave a lot of stuff , in general a very positive experience but one that carries no meaning other than my own sense of pride and achievement.
makes me sad UBISOFT and/or MASSIVE are too stubborn to realize that this Shepperding thing , which if you think about it is the total oposite of the the DZ rationale , is exactly what a game like this needs , people teaching and helping each other , not backstabbing and group raping each other forcing new players to get frustrated and uninstall the game.
i firmly believe a persistent rank and some minor rewards along the way would make a lot of people opt in to sheperd , even if out of boredom of having to run the same content again and again .
so i repeat , if a failed (IMO) concept that is the DZ where new (and old) players get frustrated , get ganked and backstabbed leading to quitting and overall player frustration has so many exclusive rewards , like exotics , gearsets, named items , commendations and so on , why cant this obviously beneficial mode to the game , where people get helped , learn and truly enjoy the game have some love too ? is it too much to ask to AT LEAST not reset the rank so people feel motivated to come back to it?
do you even have an idea of how hard this is to achieve? and that its the lack of some form of reward that drives people away from doing it? a simple persistent rank would be enough to suddenly have in game a ton of teachers to help all the new players , that cant surely be a negative thing.
think about it MASSIVE and UBISOFT ,you seem to be unable to recognize and give importance to what really matters , this wasnt easy to achieve , i dare saying it was harder than raiding , how many people have actualy reached 99 sheperd?
i did it like i said for myself , not for some prize or reward but also in the faint hope that someone over there DEVS /PUBLISHER would notice it and that could lead to some changes about it in the future because im not just asking for changes to something i dont know what im talking about and believe me when i say this is one of the many unexplored gold mines in this game.
now i will be off to cry in a corner because this will be only a lovely memory a couple of weeks from now after i get reset.
Respect to all the sheperds out there!
not trying to defend or attack anyone but players cant be punished for using something that is in game , its the devs responsability to assume the fact they didnt think about it and remove that option from the players , not punishing players for using their brain to achieve something using what is in game.
why do decoys and drones always gave as much points as regular npcs?
why do npcs give the same amount of proficiency points no matter if playing on story or heroic?
why do convoys give double the XP anounced?
why do players restart at the elevator on summit boss rounds if they want?
this is all stuff the devs should be more than aware about as they have been comunicated over and over and over , if it isnt fixed to this day then players cant be punished for using it to their advantage , i mean ... they dont seem to care despite we brought it to their attention multiple times , and besides nothing has to be done to trigger anything , its all just part of the normal gameplay loop.
and want a new one you probably didnt even think about ?
go on summit , normal dificulty , get a hacked drones room , dont cap the servers so the drones keep spawning almost endlessly and use a pulse to kill all the drones even before they get out of the door , profit .
this just isnt better than the tombs because you cant choose to have that room and you have to rely on chance for that , but when you get it ... ohhhh boy.
but rest assured you are not the first white knight that comes through here , and many more will come.
MASSIVE want to please the players with little to no work? give us the option to choose between 1/4 players scaling anywhere on the game.
im not a programmer but im guessing this takes little more than a flip of a switch and small UI option to click on .
all the work has been done a long time ago and its on the game , 4 man scaling doesnt give any extra nothing , so nothing to rework with this , just add the switch and let us have fun with our options.
and if this would get any consideration at all please dont lock it to solo play , i would want to choose the scaling no matter what , 2 players 4 man scaling ? lets go!
obviously this couldnt work the other way around so people wouldnt abuse 4 man blazing through stuff with 1 man scaling but the rest is all fair game.
so i logged in , as soon as im forced into the invaded animation , DELTA 03 , i relog , end up in WH , open inventory , realize all i had from PTS 1 and 2 is gone , DELTA 03 , i relog , get put into a queue , couple of minutes , as soon as in WH i change builds , DELTA 03 ...
ok, its the PTS ... but is that really enough of an excuse for something running so badly? and keeps getting worse and worse in every new iteration!! i mean... is there even hope?
well this post is way too important to be left unatended , this is so serious an emergency patch is in order IMO.
OP , post this on reddit , might explode there and have some decent visibility , and thank you for the heads up because this remembers me of some basic math i went to bed doing last night , see if you guys can make sense of it:
we have ATM 344 items to get proficient , at 10 ponts each item , with all proficient that is 3440 points , right?
to get expertise level 20 , at 200 points each level , we need 4000.
this left me scratching my head , at the comunicated rate we would never be able to get to 20 even after getting everything proficient , so what gives?
and now i see your post and realize the problem is even deeper than i thought it was , this needs a clarification from the devs asap.
MODS this is serious , can we try to get some answers?
and out of curiosity , OP , can you upgrade anything to level 30 ? and if so can you share the costs?
this strongly reminds me of that comment i saw on reddit when people were complaining about the lack of images in the annex...
" you cant take a pic of something that doesnt exists!"
i found it funny at the time , now i just find it on point, not funny anymore.
as much as i like this game , if everyone stopped playing it that would serve them well , then they could delay all they wanted because no one would be expecting , truth be said it was probabaly their plan all along , to let it die slowly instead of performing a swift and honest kill , but the quality of the game kept a lot of people in and now their plan is backfiiring on them.

i did it solo , heroic , 2 directives , reanimated on , only used the regulus .
just failed the 1st run right at the end because i have no minimap and couldnt see the clock , didnt even realized i had one until the objective failed came up because i took my time to board the chopper.
nice find , we are all really doomed , now imagine one more year of this constant messing up , the game wont survive that much.
also oh carol named sniper cant be recalibrated wich is strange because its a named weapon and not an exotic . can be optimized though.
i dont have this exact issue but since the GE started ive been having very poor hitreg at times , and its a weird one , one NPC just stops in its tracks and i can dump mag after mag on him without the health moving an inch , i then proceed to kill other npcs in the area and a few seconds later when i shoot at said npc again i can kill it.
game never crashed after this occurs and this only hapened a hand full of times but still its new to me from all the years playing this game.
i thought it was due to poor server maintenance and shrugged it off , but now that i read this thread the problem might be worse than i thought.
everyone and their mother is playing COD now , cant blame them ,its a new game , aparently fun and we dont even have the season running on schedule so there´s that too.
lets hope for better days , but the game is the same ,the game should still be fun no matter if there is 1 or 1000 players online.
