Greetings Agents!

For the first time ever we have two State of the Games this week! Tuesday’s State of the Game (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-252565-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) focused on reminding everyone where the vital information about Update 1.2: Conflicts could be found. With the successful deployment of the patch, we are extremely happy to hear how much everyone is enjoying it!

There are a few updates to the Patch Notes (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-251907-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) so make sure you take a look at them!

For everything discussed on this morning’s State of the Game stream check out the vod below.

Today’s maintenance (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1453981-Server-Maintenance-May-26th?p=11728848#post11728848) deployed a fix for the missing daily missions.
Don’t forget that the new Operation ISAC (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_YijpXr4RA) mission is live. Go kill 100 Veteran enemies to receive your ISAC Esmay Beanie and 3 High End Division Tech!


We continue to work hard to improve the experience of the game. Expect more bug fixing in the near future!


Gear Score

There has been some confusion regarding Gear Score and the new Dark Zone bracket. Many people are being placed in the 201+ bracket but their visible Gear Score is below that. This is because there is an invisible Gear Score that is used to calculate the Dark Zone bracket you are placed in. This hidden Gear Score takes into account:

Equipped Gear (Chest, Mask, Kneepads, Backpack, Gloves, and Holster)
Gear in your inventory (Chest, Mask, Kneepads, Backpack, Gloves, and Holster)
Gear in your Stash (Chest, Mask, Kneepads, Backpack, Gloves, and Holster)
The weapon you have with the highest Gear Score. This can be any weapon you have equipped, in your inventory, or in your Stash.

Incursion Difficulty

There are many discussions surrounding the difficulty of Clear Sky. This is sparked by the fact that many players are clearing the Incursion in under 10 minutes. With Clear Sky we moved away from the wave based mechanics and into a system that allows you to control your own pace and naturally, with better gear and a similar difficulty scaling to Falcon Lost the Hard Mode is trivial for some players.

Double UI

Many users have been experiencing a bug that causes your UI to duplicate over itself, making it very difficult to read text and select things. This is something we are working on actively to fix as soon as possible.

Known Issues

We’ve created a Known Issues (http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/1233-Known-Issues?) section of the forum. Make sure you keep your eye on it to stay up to date!
