Title: The Division 2 "OldG Character" 19/03/19 8-10pm
Post by: sharkbiscuit79 on March 10, 2019, 08:40:09 am
Alright peeps...

Basically we dont know if the sequel will have the same player level issues. What I would like to do is set up a separate OLDG character so we all start and finish at the same level and only use your "OldG character" for specified game nights.

Obviously some people won't be able to make every game night so there might have to be a level of catch up.

Not sure when co-op opens up so will message any players signed up to let them know what the required start point will be if there is any at all.. (it was level 4 I belive in the first game).

Signed up......

Team 1...
Sharky
Blackstar
Milky
Chilli

Team 2....
Dinsey
Tequila
Mohawked
Ging

Team 3
Stele (maybe)
Will take another player from another team for you to play with...
NO OLDG LEFT BEHIND!!!!

True achievements has released the following achievement list. It is for the PS version of the game however, and nothing has been confirmed.

I like the idea of Division 2.. but I have concerns it might have all the same stuff wrong with it. (I was also pondering the PC one - which is £36 on CD Keys :) )

Thanks for the replies guys..

If you have only said you are buying it can you clarify if that's an intention to join the game night please  :)

Remember we will be playing with a SEPARATE character from scratch solely for the game nights so please make sure you don't join with another character .

 I WILL MESSAGE EVERYONE BEFORE THE GAME NIGHT WHAT LEVEL OR WHAT THE START POINT IS FOR OUR CHARACTERS AS I WOULD IMAGINE YOU WILL HAVE TO PLAY THROUGH THE TUTORIAL WITH EACH CHARACTER YOU HAVE

Thanks all, looking forward to it  :)

Apparently you can start co op after unlocking BOO at the White House. If the game starts like the beta (I'll find out tonight) it will literally take mins to get co op going  :)

This is according to the following: https://twinfinite.net/2019/03/division-2-co-op-multiplayer-friends-how/

Also to note, it's a 4 player story co op, and 8 players for raids

OldG Clan

Someone also needs to set up the OldG Clan room in the BOO  :)

Yes all you have to do is get to the White House and talk to the NPC's that are part of that introduction mission. Once you have done this co-op unlocks...

I timed it... from start up to character creation then the intro mission/s taking you up to the White House and watching the cut scenes took me 40mins dead on. Allow for around 35 - 50 mins depending on skill level and how long you want to take creating your character.

For those that don't know have to set up a second character, load up the game then once you are in bring up the menu and in the bottom you will see Log Out. Log out then this will allow you to set up a new game/character.. you will obviously have to play through the intro again.

Clans are still currently unavailable to me as you have to get so far in the game to do so and at the time of writing this I don't exactly know how much yet.

I was in the game this morning, and you unlock clans by the look of it through upgrading the settlement. Apparently you do this by completing the main missions.
I have 1 to go to get the additional staff memeber to unlock clans. I will get this done tonight. If you don't beat me to it Sharky, I'll set it up, if that's ok?

I won't go to indepth with the character creation, and will skip the cut scenes, as I've seen them 3 times now!

I've just set up a clan. Please edit to suit, but thought I'd get our name at least. The other details regarding the clan can be changed at any time.

Clan name - Old Gamerz

Soooo. some sort of good news with co-op....

It has level scaling. Milky joined me and a friend last night. We were both lvl3 and Milky was lvl7. When he joined it come up with a message saying the game will tailor for the highest lvl player but will buff the other players.

So next to our lvl it had another number next to it. It buffed me and my friend to lvl 6. It was a bit tricky in places and had to work a bit better as a team but still very much playable.

Down side is that when playing co-op although you still level up (even when buffed) any progress in the story is locked to the host.

That is some really good info there Sharky, thanks for sharing.

We would have had Milky join us last night in Div1, but our characters were lvl 8, he was either 37 or had to start a new character, neither would work. If he had a lvl 4 character, he could have hid behind us for a few missions and would have levelled up quickly.

I take it there must be a limit in Div2 with this new feature?

Good news and bad there then :)

I crumbled earlier in the week and got this for PC. Have to say - it just seems like the exact same game as the last one to me.

If you liked the last one I guess thats good.. if you didnt less so (although maybe they resolved whatever irked about the first...)
I didnt dislike the first - but there were things that irritated me... However I shall refrain from a mini rant about these :)

Something to consider perhaps,  just been playing and got kicked out due to server maintenance. It looks to be down for about 15 mins. This may interrupt our game nights if it's a regular occurance

Post by: HomerRamone on March 19, 2019, 09:28:36 am
Ive seen the server message both times ive played it. I was still online well after the timer expired the first time - and I rage quit before the time expired the second time :)

It took over 30 mins for me last night.
Got back on and 2 1/2 hours later it was about 12.30! Luckily no rage quitting just yet for me, however I've been close to it haha

Thanks for the session last night lads. Had fun. The crash back to the dashboard was a bit annoying but didn't ruin anything.

I definitely need to sort my headset out as I coudn't hear what was being said once gun fire erupted. What was the suggestion regarding using these characters more in non-weekly sessions, or am I mistaken?

If anyone wants to jump on again this week, be it with the OLDG Character or my alt (currently level 3) then feel free to send me a message on live. I'll either be playing this or Assassins Creed Odyssey, and I don't mind switching out from the latter for some a session.

My Oldg character is level 5. My other character is level 10. I will keep Oldg character for these nights, but will be on most nights with my other if anyone wants to team up.

I'll add you later if that's ok? My main character level is 12, so the upscalling won't be a big jump.

I enjoyed last night. Bit disorientating for me, with chat from 2 groups, but added to the fun.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one!  ;D I only recognise Orb's voice. And when people were speaking I had no clue who it was and if it was someone from my group!

Actually I did manage to get on quite late last night for some F1 2018..... and I don't have Division 2..... yet

Cheers everyone, to be honest the level scaling works just fine so playing with different levels won't be a problem (It was just too late to change by the time I found out)

As for group chat I did ask everyone what they wanted and was met with silence  ;D ;D ;D

I think in future it will be better if we split parties. I'll put another night up for next Tuesday and make it a regular thing, again as for levels I wouldn't worry about being the exact level as team mates...

As well as others feel free to join me if you see me playing, I'm really enjoying it and will be on most nights..


Cheers all

Just to be aware I believe there is a level scaling issue. Apparently its affecting armour not weapon damage. For example the other night I was matched up with high level players and I was getting one shotted.  I had to leave the game. This has happened twice to me. The developers know about the issue. Not sure if this is a common occurance but if you Google it seems to be significant.
