Gotta admit, even with all the negative press, this game seems appealing. I'm someone who does hundreds of hours in open world shooting games, solo. STALKER, Borderlands, the Far Cry games, even the Division, most of which i played by myself, and enjoyed immensely.

Assuming i don't have a huge need for raids and pvp (but will do the former if it's decently chill/not anal about minmaxxing), do you think I'll get much out of this game? The demo, which I've only played a bit of, assured me that I'll like the action, but i don't want to pay near full price if solo can only carry my so far.

I'm pretty much on the same boat as that guy who asked about him and his wife playing a few hours after work. Minus the wife.

Gonna end up paying full price for the Expansion Pass, though, so it's a wash.

Does the expansion impact non-max-level gameplay?

Just got this game, joined [TIME], and am enjoying the game as I 'level'. Don't care much (nor need to) about the writing, and it'll be weeks before I can even parse most of the jargon going through this thread

Happy to be aboard.

Though I'm willing to bet the reason you don't see more mixed enemies in the forest rooms is that they all programmed to fight each other if they come in contact.

Not that it matters but the new zone in the recently released Division update reverses that exact same thing. There are several factions in the game with their own territories and if they cross paths, normally they fight. In this area they all spawn a lot more and work together to kill Agents (players).

While I understand it might not be the easiest thing to reverse, it sounds like it'd be a welcome addition/aspect of randomized Rift-likes.

I wish more people thought like this so every time I ask about anything related to weapons I wouldn't get an automatic "JUST USE BETTER DEVILS AND SUNSHOT FOR PvE. BEST IN CLASS. DON'T NEED ANYTHING ELSE."

I lucked out about that. I didn't know 'takes less time to summon' meant Instant, so I thought it was a useless skill, because I never felt like I was in a rush to get one. Hell, I almost trashed it.

Once I saw the power of it though...

Can someone explain this timer/cooldown of loot that you guys are talking about? I don't play many MMOs so this is a new concept to me.

Alls I know about chests is running around getting them in dead zones and lost sectors. If there's an aspect about getting extra loot, restricted by time/chest amounts/both, then I have no clue about it.

funkmeister posted:

Just to spell it out, it isn't extra loot. If you try to open multiple chests within a shorter time frame than Bungie has invisibly decreed you should, you get nothing at all.

What kind of chests are we talking here? Lost Sector? Strikes? Etc.

That's not odd that's actually pretty normal right now

The division suckers you into trying to get more loot via its psychology, not loot boxes. It's still not healthy because all rng loot games are a bit problematic tbqh, but it's a much more pleasant gaming experience.

I play both games because I enjoy the shooting in both but The Division has been consistently less frustrating with loot--and playing with different skills/loadouts.

I really like Destiny 2 and got my moneys worth but cut it out with all the loving gemini jesters holy shiiiit

i might seriously give Warframe another try.

I love the shooting in this game but if I keep literally getting nothing but loving Gemini Jesters then i think i've reached ultimate endgame here. gently caress.

It honestly depends on what you want out of it.

The gunplay is a Bungie-Quality good time, and the recent balance changes to weapons, exotics, and move speed/supers have improved this even more. You can have a lot of fun just logging on and doing patrols or public events if you just want to shoot stuff.


I'm considering reinstalling based on this alone. I play solo, generally, and enjoyed the shooting enough for about 2 months straight as a near max-level hunter, peeking in a few days a week just for the fun of shooting and running around. Getting the same exotics every week was frustrating, though, and it eventually put me off. This was in January. Has there been enough change to loot distribution/rewards? I'm not trying to min-max in a hurry, I just want access to different things if possible.

Sweet, I'll keep that in mind.

Lastly, does the 2nd xpac add anything that adds to the open world/arsenal? Just a patrol zone?

Haven't played since like Q1 2018. Is 1.2.3 going to bring fun back to someone who just liked doing bounties/patrols for time-killing PvE?
