First disconnect. Hmm, guess it's getting hammered right now.

Yeah it’s getting hammered as I kept kicking out now.

The devs are looking at ways to improve the servers to reduce the disconnects. I have tried the second mission 5 or 6 times and disconnecting each time.

It seems stable to play now.

3 Disconnects in total but managed to squeeze in almost two hours with Lewis, Crisp and Pedz.

So far it's more Division, which is great. Looking forward to more games over the next few days. :D

The lack of grenade spam and less bullet spongy enemies make this a lot better.

I realise this is just on what amounts to easy mode but shooting people in the face for an hour before they go down made the first game a real chore at times.

Aye! Very happy with that! Didn't take too long for it to feel normal again! 8-)

Graphically it is showing its age a wee bit now, still looks great, but lacks the wow the first one had at the time. Still might be different once the game goes gold?

The shooting feels a lot better now, with swathes of enemies taking much less to kill now, which is a relief.

NPC grenades are still a bit piss takey. Saw one NPC seemingly lob a grenade at my feet from about 100 metres :lol:

I took some photos of the gang reunion 8-)

My dude - looks like Hawkins from Predator :lol:

Had a go with photo mode but couldn't spend too much time with it as the guys kept legging it :)

The squad stood triumphantly over the dead boss (Read: Seeing what new loot we got and reorganising our inventory :lol: )

Was fun. I know I was very quiet for the most part, but I just kept my mic muteled most of the time or you'll be hearing my death coughing constantly.

But is anyone having bad sound issues? Because I've had loads of dodgy sound, especially during firefights and it really strawberry floats up.

I've not encountered a sound bug, though my Headset was cutting in and out, so I might have missed it! :lol:

I'm really excited to get hold of the full game already. I think the thing getting me most hyped is that the game got better as we played through more of it (until end game content boooo).
We had a great little set up of doing the Story and Side missions as a team, then doing you're own free-play/Dark Zone thing when the Squad wasn't online.
It made progressing through the story really fun to experience it together. And it also had a childish element of showing off your new toys you'd found/earned when the squad next got together :lol:

I was heroically bug testing the revive mechanic that's why I let myself be downed a few times and not at all because I think my pad is slightly broken and is forcing my guy to run forwards without me asking :shifty: .

I revived someone else so it wasn't only me.

I got downed once as I'd run out and revived Crisp and couldn't heal fast enough.

There is a flying drone that can heal yourself, others and turrets.

I miss the premise of the mobile Phone powered drone that they hit upon for Div1.

The idea of being able to get your friend at work to use a machine gun drone on his mobile phone while you're fighting it out was a great idea.
