Haha, I appreciate that. A lot of grinding went into this build. I finally got my holster, I have slightly less health and armor by about 2-3k each on both stats. I get precise on my holster however for that extra 15% headshot damage.

I never played the first game but I've got a decent amount of hours in this one and I can't help but think that this game will never reach it's full potential while it has PvE and PvP. There is a lot of fun left on the table for both modes because of having to balance between the two. I'm not sure why every game needs some sort of competitive aspect to it.

It's just my opinion but I played RE2 for about 4 hours (never played the original) and it was easily the most boring game I have played in a long time. I wish I could give you the copy I got from AMD. It's very good looking and the mood/atmosphere is incredible, but all you do is walk around and look for stuff to help you get out of a building. I kept asking myself why I couldn't just climb out one of these windows I keep boarding up.

You gotta get past the introduction to the mechanics for it to get really juicy. I will say though that after you do all 4 playthroughs it gets a little repetitive. But then there are the challenge missions. Quite fun.

So decided to install it instead of selling my key, took something like 6mins (gotta love downloading at 110MB/s took no time at all). It's def improved quite a lot even from the closed/open beta. If anyone is interested in playing with a level 3 (although I'm much higher then that having played the closed alpha and closed beta lol). It's quite a lot of fun.

The developers stated that they are going to be adding 515 gear score loot drops, but they will only be in the Dark Zone. They make a game that has terrible PvP combat, and a terrible PvP system behind that combat, and think that the way to get people to play PvP is to provide better rewards???

I think my Division 2 career is going to end up being a short one if I have to deal with PvP to get the best loot for raids.

Honestly the difference between 500GS items and 515 are going to be insanely small. The difference even from 450 to 500 is tiny, it's mainly additional armor.


What's so awful about the PvP? I find DarkZone enjoyable, but it's also because I have a PvP build that just melts everyone who's using the "meta" builds.

The whole concept of the game works fine for single play or co-op against npc's but there is an awful lot of luck involved with making a build (almost all luck and time, we can be nice and call it determination) and that just doesn't seem competitive to me. I might feel differently if you could attain the best wepaon, armor, or skill through some means other than luck, but that's just how the game is made.

It just doesn't feel right for PvP to me. That being said, most of the reason I don't want to do PvP is simply that I don't want to do PvP. If I want to play against other people I will go play a game that's designed for it.

I don't think you understand how easy it is to make a build in this game due to the lack of variety. It takes maybe 2 hours in the DZ to make a solid PVP build. You don't need the "best" of anything especially since majority of the PVP in this game is normalized.

Maybe I just have bad luck but I have a really hard time farming in the DZ. Every time I get a landmark going or start a drop a rouge group will come and shoot me in the back before I can complete it and pick up loot. When I was below level 30 I didn't really have this problem, but now I have far better success doing challenge missions that jerk offs can't come in and ruin. All of this is probably going to get a lot worse once they start putting better gear drops in the Dark Zone, I'm sure all those players who love taking on unsuspecting players are just licking their chops.

The conflict PvP stuff is fine, it's more of a fair fight situation where everyone is expecting to fight other players. My problem there is that it's sort of like a crappy version of COD. I would much rather jump in another game that has good PvP combat, even the worst multiplayer FPS shooters are better at PvP than this game is.
