D2 isn't even a year old yet.
It's better than D1 was at this point in it's life imo.
Lol. Like that is some grand achievement or means anything at all when it suffers the same problems with less reedemable qualities. The Underground DlC>>Div 2 + its 2 DLCs.

It being a year old is a terrible excuse.

Underground wasn't out this far into D1's life.

D1 started good and got sour fast...
After years worth of upgrades the game got great.

Yes it was. Underground came out like 3 months after release. Like major DLC does.

New York is under threat. Aaron Keener, a former Division Agent turned rogue, has taken control of Lower Manhattan, backed by four devoted and highly skilled lieutenants. Trained by The Division but disavowing its ideals, they are now the highest authority in town and the most formidable force the Agents have ever faced.
Play in single-player or online co-op:
- A gripping new story, hunting down your nemesis
- A level 30 boost, allowing you to jump right into the Warlords of New York campaign
- A new open world in New York
- A revamped progression system with a level cap increased to 40
- New tactical options: exotics, gears, and skills
- An extended endgame, including thematic three-month seasons

Please make a zombie dlc, it's already environmentally zombie apocalypsey, just need a b-movie story and some zombie animations and textures on enemies.

$30 to get the expansion. I think I'll wait and see if they really improve the game. I never even really finished the main game.

Mtashed got to play it. Just be aware, Ubisoft is paying a lot of people to promote the game. They didn't pay him, but they did fly him out.

Mtashed does love to hype things before release (Anthem, Div 2) and then wreck them after they come out, but he has some details on the new game.

Not going to pay that. If I ever get back into the game and catch a sale on the expansion I might bite.
Same. I might pay like five bucks, but if they really want players to join in they should include the expansion in Game Pass somehow. The Division 2 was too much of a grind fest in the first place, once I hit level 30 I stopped playing. Don't think I did any end game missions lol

They will all be s***ting on it 1 week after release.

I gave Div 2 the benifit of the doubt and gave it a chance. The devs learnt nothing from Div 1, they gave garbage DlC, took way too long to fix stuff, and here we are still waiting for fixes to core parts of the game.

Div 2 can f*** off.

Yep. They overhype it to start, then a week later they'll be trashing it. Mtashed hyped the heck out of Anthem (lol) and then changed his tune.

These Youtubers are either paid directly or at least flown out to the studio to hype the game.

I just wanted to post it only because he did have some actual examples of loot.

For $30 I probably won't buy but when I see it for $10 I'll jump on, play for 5-10 hours and move on to something else.

Wow, nice to see new content. I played the hell out of this game last year but got burned out and was really disappointed with the lack of matchmaking for the raid. So I moved on to other games. Still, its been a while and I had a lot of fun making builds so I think I’ll reinstall this game soon and check it out as it is now, I’m sure there’s been a lot of changes.

I like Mtashed the youtuber. I don’t think he or other tubers intentionally over hype games. In his case at least it seems like when he’s having fun it shines through in his video delivery and he can be overly excitable at times especially when he’s owning fools online. I really like his vibe and enthusiasm and have learned that he like most of us gamers can get too excited for a game during its honeymoon period and then have those feelings abruptly change in a short time. So, I say pay more attention to what’s being shown on screen to see if its something you think looks fun and don’t pay as much attention to the opinion being shared, or at least don’t mistake opinions for facts.

I picked up the new expansion and it’s a lot of fun. Its great to be back in NYC and the new map has reignited the excitement for exploration. The few missions I’ve done so far are fun and some have cool little environmental puzzles in them for some nice rewards. The devs made significant changes to gear and totally destroyed my old build but that’s cool because of the new level cap all my old gear is useless so I either deconstructed or sold it all save a few pieces of gear and all my exotic weapons which I’ll need to find a way to get leveled up versions of.

I’m not a big fan of locking out the DC map until I complete the campaign in NYC. But now that I’ve settled in NYC I’m in no rush to go back just yet. A nice touch to award the player with a new skill taken from the defeated boss and I’m digging the manhunt for Rogue A. Keener. The story isn’t the best but I do like the setup of it all. Lets face it story is not the focus here anyway. Its going to take a while before I can tell whether or not the new gear system is to my liking. To be honest after so many hours in a few of these loot-shooters all I want now is some fun for a few weeks and then I’ll happily move on. But right now its good to be a Division Agent again.

Is this worth it? Seems like people were pretty negative about it, but that is how most games are.

Does it get rid of all your loot? I'd be ok with that as I never even really got to the endgame. I never finished the last strongholds or whatever. Could never find people.

I’m still on the campaign of the expansion. But I’ve seen vids complaining about “bullet Sponge” enemies back with a vengeance on harder difficulties. I had thought Massive moved away from that approach to increased difficulty but I guess they couldn’t find an alternative. I primarily play solo or with random groups and content that requires specific/synergized group builds is the fastest way to scare me away and have me leave the game altogether. You can’t expect highly optimized builds in a random group, I understand it for the hardest content like a Raid but for a Stronghold it’s too much to ask atleast for solo players like myself.

I wonder if skill builds are viable for the hardest difficulty. I'm thinking about this because I just hit lvl40 after completing the Warlords campaign and I took the few lvl40 gear pieces I have that add skill power that took me to tier 4 of electronics. I'm only playing on hard difficulty using the mortar turret and firefly banshee pulse. This combo allows me to stun the enemies for 5 seconds and then rain mortars on their heads. Its really effective in crowd control and does tons of damage. But I know things can change when the difficulty setting is increased. I'm going to try and max out my electronics tier and see how it goes. And since this is a range build I still need a way better rifle to pick enemies off with. But so far this is a fun build.

I am a high DPS and decent armor build.
I decided to join the DPS gang and put a build together. Holy hell, no wonder so many people are using the M1A rifle, it destroys. My build has my rifle hitting for over 500k per bullet and I have 50% crit hit chance for even more damage. I have been trying to increase headshot damage to replace weapon handling on like 3 or 4 gear pieces. If RNG would ever be kind and grant it that would be awesome. Speaking of RNG its been brutal for me, only have one exotic (sweet dreams shotty) after playing a lot lately. I've been farming the Wall Street & Tombs missions on hard and challenging for the bullet king LMG but nothing so far.
