Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-gb/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-318071-16&ct=tcm:154-76770-32), Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau highlighted community content and gave a quick update on the ongoing Global Event, Ambush.

This week, Petter and Yannick are back to discuss classified gear drop rates, community content and a kitten that has gone rogue.

If you missed the stream, you check out the VoD (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/224610835).

Today’s maintenance completed on schedule and performed its normal duties.

The fourth Global Event titled Ambush is now over. We hope that you enjoyed the event and got your hands on some neat upgrades for your agent!

Now that all Classified Gear sets have been introduced, we are looking at the possibility of increasing the Classified Gear drop rate in a few specific locations. In addition, we are also looking at other solutions with the aim to increase their overall availability to the players. We will share further details on this topic as soon as possible.

This week our customer support saw a case of a rogue kitten. A poor agent had his kitten sit on his keyboard prompting the game to delete his character. The resulting support ticket had this picture attached with the caption “The little ***** doesn’t even know what he’s done”. It sure looks guilty to me!

STATS WITH YANNICK
Yannick returns this week with some interesting figures from the recently concluded Global Event.

A genuinely impressive 19.9 billion Global Event credits were earned during the past week, with 13.3 million Superior Ambush caches opened.

FAN ART
Have you ever imagined what State of the Game would taste like in a can? Michael Batenburg (https://twitter.com/Batenburg2017/status/957469452236410880) rendered a State of the Game beverage for everyone to enjoy. We'll take a few, Agent.

Community member Cheshire Cat (https://twitter.com/ccat1986) created a series of movie posters for ‘A Christmas Miracle (https://twitter.com/ccat1986/status/958237031670349824)’, a motion picture starring our very own Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau. What we want to know is, when’s the premiere?

Thanks for the laugh, agent!

COSPLAY
This week we would like to showcase another great cosplayer in the ranks of The Division. Agent Akimura (https://twitter.com/AkiMura_tw_2017) is fighting against the elements with only his sidearm to protect against the dangers of the city. We hope that he managed to gear up and made it to an extraction point in time. We cannot afford to lose any more agents in the blizzard if we are to take the city back.

Hello division team !

I don t know where to post this so i guess this will be a good place for it.

I encounter so many players using cheat engine in last stand ( rpm increase ). This makes me very sad that nothing is done neither discuss in SOTG even if i report them all the time. Plz guyz do something about it and clear the game from all those cheaters so that regular player have a chance in pvp.

Have classified gear drop rates be drastically increased. slow down enemy AI movement speed. Keep balancing weapons. Improve AI performance: e.g. have them behave more realistically. Continue to improve endgame content: i.e.. expand upon the DZ idea, and add a fun and rewarding endgame PvE activity that also grants a constant reward that can be used indefinitely, e.g. division tech, etc. Add more blood and gore, less spongy enemies. Thanks for a fun game!

State of the game: The Division Cheater Revenge. Still ignore this issue. No words. Everybody is leaving for the same reason: cheater. But sure, let's talk to the new classified sets.

Re-run Global Events, give us a chance to complete things we missed the first time around, I have plenty of commendations that I never got done, and maybe you could refresh them with more objectives and gear
.
Introduce a DZ mode where there are no Rogues, but roving Hunters instead, make Hunters of different levels and with different skills, defenses etc.

Make the Hunters easier in Resistance.

Hunters are not problem scaling is. Whole game is broken because of bad scaling.

survival was the best add on by far and was a great addition to the game when it 1st came out but the numbers playing this has now dropped dramatically I still enjoy playing it but there are no where near enough people playing it on average its me vs 1 player. why cant the developers make it more rewarding to play this and get people back involved like more classified gear drops and harder enemies. please look into this as it is becoming unplayable due to the lack of players. :(:(

Here is an idea for your your show:

Talk about requirements of certain commendations such as flawless requirements.

Ex:

What happens if a player leaves the mission area?
What about if someone joins in the middle of the mission?

No need to be guessing, this should be a relatively easy for you guys to do.

Talk about the mechanics and techniques of certain parts of the game, such as how multiple healing stations work.

I believe that topics like this would keep us interested in the SOTG
