Is Gold Editon worth it? Or will standard edition be fine for awhile and just get season pass at later time?
Yeah I'm not even sure what the season pass even does. DLC is free. I guess you just get to unlock specializations right away. I assume there are more benefits.

I'm guessing that unless you really want the early access, we can just buy standard and can always add the pass later on.

The season pass grants...

1 week early access to DLC
Immediate acces to specializations.
Exclusive bounties
Exclusive classified assignments.
Cosmetic items.
Loot caches --not sure if this is cosmetic or not.

That is all I can recall of the top of my head.

Gold is just playing early and getting the yearly pass.

I'm just being impatient. Most likely won't hear back about changing editions...and it's probably for the best.

FYI the side missions level with you, meaning the XP reward grows too. Might want to save as many as you can for the latter level ups.

People who hang in video game forums do such things ;)
Not true. I actually really intend to work when I’m at home tomorrow. Honestly. I swear. No I really do. :really:

Hmmm not sure if that is worth an extra $40.

Yeah honestly maybe not for the average player. I'm probably going standard, as I work all week and probably would only get a couple of hours in for early release. Can always buy it later on if it turns out to be a big thing.

After the BF V "digital deluxe" edition I'm sort of hesitant buying these versions. Back when they covered the DLC it made sense. Now I'm never sure exactly what we get.

If I do get it this week I’m probably just going standard. Plus I can get some impressions before Friday from the early gamers.

Was going to, but ubi support isn't quite that fast. It's fine. Saved myself $40. Plus, I'm in no rush to speed through to end game.

Yeah, I don't have the time really to play it right now anyhow, so the extra $40 is a non-starter. It does look like some small lore stuff will be in the missions included in this pass but honestly I just don't see that being worth it. Fortunately, it looks like they're not planning on nickle and diming every user, at least not the first year content. And anything that keeps menace busy and not posting here for several days has got to be a winner! :B->:

Been good so far. All the bugs I came across in the betas seem to be gone.

Loving the Hive skill.

hrudey Come on now, it isn't happening.

I took the Shield where you can use your main weapon and the Turret. What Hive ability did you take?

I took the the Stinger option. Has decent radius, does nice damage, good crowd control.

Standard release is 3/15, so only 3 days until us regular fold can play.

The turret is essential for solo play, imo. To useful for tactical options...

Haven't used it once. No skill is essential imo. If you play solo then movement is your friend.

Anybody tried pulse? In Div 1 it was great, but the description in Div 2 sounds like it is pretty bad.

Steve was saying he got pulse and that it’s complete garbage now. I’m not sure which ability he took with it.

I have to say I’ve found the turret pretty essential if I’m playing solo. It’s so much better than it was in D1. You still need to be able to move well but having it lock down a choke point is great.

One thing i do find really annoying the co-op scaling mechanic. It defaults to the level of the highest player and then applies a buff to the lower level players. Sounds good in theory but it’s awful in practice. I was getting one shot downed playing with menace last night because he was 13 and I was 6. This is going to make co-op with your friends very frustrating until everyone gets to 30. Not everyone is going to be able to put the same amount of time in or progress their level as quickly as others and players certainly shouldn’t be punished for wanting to play with their friends that have just put more time into the game at the start.

I caved and bought the PC version. If anyone is getting a clan going, I'm kerosene_31 on uPlay (who the heck stole my usual name?!?!??!) :tounge:

I just got the peasant version so I can't play until Friday. I wasn't going to get this, but the $52 deal was just too good to pass up.
