Tom Clancy's The Division / The Division 2

Is anyone else looking at The Division 2? 

I'm weary of IP's and sequels,  but I may give this one a look.

I was curious about this and while drinking my morning coffee I poked around their website.

It appears you need to purchase the Shadow Box (Thin Client hardware) if you need hardware to run their software (VDI).  The subscription only covers the service and you would need to download their app on a device with an operating system.  Either of those would run the VDI session.



Availability of the Shadow Box is currently limited.


It's not very clear on the surface and this is my interpretation.  I will correct if any errors are pointed out.

I've been using a Razor Naga Hex for the last few years and it's worked well across a bunch of games.


I just received in the mail today a new Swiftpoint Z.  I can't tell you my personal experience with it just yet, but people swear they are the best mouse they have ever used.  We'll see...

With the flight changes coming in 3.5, it might be a beast.

If that Graphic Jer just posted is up to date with knowing info then your info is wrong. Reason I said that you listed one Hull C thats fine and dandy but you forgot we have 1 Hull D and I own it lol Plus I also own Starfarer, Banu Merchantmen,  Reclaimer, Orion, Dragonfly and  Ursa rover over and above my Supper Hornet and Connie  and Hull D lol
The fleet changes at every sale as people melt and upgrade and shuffle, so it's impossible to track accurately.

My token buy-back list is 8 pages long...

When it comes to melting, buy-backs, CCU's and coupons, I've worked some creative accounting.  The point I'm trying to make is,  even my roster changes month to month.   To keep tabs on an entire fleet is much tougher.  :evil:

Spending your money is easier than spending mine, but I'm not going to tell you how to spend it.  :D

But I will say this if you are in a buying mood.

  • Cater to the play-style you enjoy.
  • You get more return on investment with bigger ships.  Both with insurance and in-game costs.
  • Don't worry about what other people have, purchase for you.

  Ugh, the Valkyrie makes me mad.  New dropship announced this week will be flyable in the next patch.  My Redeemer was introduced 4 years ago now and still no updates or anything.   ::)

Gah, I was looking for the quote for the last few minutes but I can't locate it.   It was mentioned during one of the talks that the Redeemer was being made into a more pure gunship.

I'll keep looking for confirmation.  Depending on your expectations of the ship this could be good or bad, but yes, it would be nice to see the older ships work through the pipeline.

Edit: Not really official confirmation, but someone else caught the comment.

Squadron 42 is feature locked.  Pure speculation and a wild guess, but I think it will release next year at Citizencon that will be held in Manchester so that many of the actors can attend.

PU - Chris said they will stop wiping the servers and update every quarter indefinitely once server meshing is in and working.  Most likely after SQ42 release.  Source : https://youtu.be/EGzcYLBN2VU?t=1108

A couple of really good videos to watch:

Star Citizen / Re: Who is hyped for 3.1.0?
« on: March 21, 2018, 11:06:47 AM »
I'll load it and check it out.

The game has A LOT of promise, just waiting for the performance and mechanics to catch up.  I'm trying to not play too much alpha, beta, etc..., so when the game does launch there is still that sense of wonderment and surprises.

I hope the performance in 3.1 allows for another flight night.  I missed the last couple.

You look like you aim to misbehave.

Nah, he just saw a sign advertising three tacos for a dollar, he's looking to see if barbacoa is an option...
