    Open beta this weekend for The Division, for anyone interested in trying it out.

    It started at 5AM this morning for Xbox One, and 8AM tomorrow for PS4 and PC, and goes until 8AM Monday.

    If you were in the closed beta a few weekends ago, and didn't already delete it from your console, it just needs to download an update, rather than having to download the whole 30GB again.

    I've been playing for the last 3 hours with no issues. Server issues at midnight on launch date are to be expected nowadays, unfortunately.

    I've been enjoying it so far. It's much better with a group of friends, than alone though.

    I have a couple hours into it. Was all set for a good session last night but the servers were "upgrading" and I got the boot in the mittle of an epic firefight.

    It's good, not great...and there currently is no end game content other than daily quests and "Challenge" mode which is just the same quests on a higher difficulty

    All enemies are "bullet sponges"

    End game is coming next month in a free DLC aparently


    And don't even think about going into the Dark zone without a full group...that zone is set up simply to troll people, you will get fucked if you go in there

    I spent about 10 minutes in the Dark Zone by myself the other day and went from level 1 to 7 fairly easily, but didn't venture any further than that.

    I've been playing most night with a group of about 6 of us, so we usually end up playing as 2 groups of 3, since you can't have more than 4 in a group. I'd love to see them up the group limit to 6. Of all of us in the group I think I'm the only one to go into the DZ so far.

    MRAMRA, I'm assuming you must be MorningWood-whatever? :lol: I thought I had you on Xbox Live before, but don't see you now, and have no idea who MorningWood is, other than they're someone on RC.

    I just realized that with work being a little slow right now, I've actually put more time into taking care of NYC than I have working at my actual job in the last week :lol: I just hit level 21.

    Im hooked on this game. Loving it so far, hit level 17 last night. I'm Surprised because I usually hate online games, but knew I'd be giving this one a chance. Doesn't disappoint.

    I hit level 30 and completed the main story earlier in the week, but have been busy and haven't gotten a chance to play much more since then. I'm still loving it though.

    Have you spent much time in the dark zone yet? and are you playing with other people, or by yourself?

    I typically play an evening alone, then an evening with friends. Keeps it interesting.

    I feel like it's not worth playing until they do a gear reset...there ahve been so many glitches used by peple to get really good gear that someone who didn't glitch is at such a disadvantage it's not worth playing anymore
