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:154-315702-16&ct=tcm:154-76770-32), Community Developer Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau discussed how 1.8 has been progressing alongside details about the upcoming Global Event – Strike.

Petter is back this week with Community Developer Yannick Banchereau to discuss the ongoing Global Event - Strike, provide a quick overview of some issues currently present in the game and the return of Stats with Yannick!

If you missed the stream, you check out the VoD (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/209481094). If you’re currently on the move, we have you covered with our Podcast Recap (https://soundcloud.com/thedivisiongame/state-of-the-game-14122017).


We started today’s stream with a special message to Agent Mabeobja (https://twitter.com/Agent_Mab) who is currently going through some health related issues. We wish you good health & all the best! Stay awesome, agent!

A maintenance was performed this morning performing the usual duties and deploying a fix for an issue that enabled players to obtain World Tier 5 caches while playing the Resistance game mode in World Tier 1.

The new Global Event - Strike went live this week on Tuesday, 12th of December, spicing up gameplay with three unique global event modifiers that makes things go boom!

Strike modifiers:

Strike - Always active. Enemies explode when killed.
Pre-emptive Strike - Strike behavior, plus sustained incoming damage triggers a small explosion on Agents.
Tactical Strike - Pre-emptive Strike behavior, plus enemies are marked using Strike explosions. When killed, they damage remaining enemies. Ally-to-Ally explosion damage is increased.

Strike introduced four new Classified Gear sets to the game. You can now get your hands on the Classified versions of the Path of the Nomad, Predator’s Mark, Banshee & D3-FNC gear sets by participating in the global event and purchasing Strike Caches at the Global Event vendor.

Following the release of the Global Event, we experienced server instability due to high server load and we have been working throughout the week to improve server stability for our players.

Finally, Petter provided a quick overview on some issues reported by the community since the launch of Update 1.8 and what their current status is. We appreciate the bug reports we have received since the launch and we will be working to fix these issues in an upcoming client patch.

If you encounter issues while playing the game, remember to post a bug report on the Technical Support (https://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/1024-Technical-Support) forums.

Stats with Yannick
Today marked the return of Stats with Yannick, with a number of cool statistics from Update 1.8 and the ongoing Global Event. As a sneak peak, here's the amount of players who has been killed by Hunters in the Underground so far.


For a full rundown of the statistics, make sure to check out the VoD (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/209481094) or listen to the Podcast Recap (https://soundcloud.com/thedivisiongame/state-of-the-game-14122017). Can you guess how much D-tech has been spent at the Optimization Station?


We have decided to extend the ongoing ‘Strike’ Global Event by 48 hours. The event will now run until December 20th, 12:00 UTC, giving more time for you to enjoy Strike and perhaps get that missing gear piece you are after.

We will have news on a potential State of the Game for next week as soon as possible. Thanks again, Agents!

As always, be sure to join us over on the Official Forums (http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/498) or on the community Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/thedivision/) if you’re looking for a place to discuss all things related to The Division.

Until next time!

You Guys have done an amazing job with 1.8. Please keep this kind of content rolling. Having a "Blast" this week.

Thank You

Not one to dwell on the downside's of update's but if i'm being honest predators mark, it's a bit much... as in you were supposed to bring 2 stick's of dynamite and you brought a nuke instead.

10 Superior boxes opened and got 3 classified gear and 3 old exotics, the rest regular gear, useless

What I would like to know is why we still aren’t able to trade items out of these caches like we can all the rest I’ve asked this question before and no one has bothered to answer. Which leads me to believe along with the dismal drop rates this event that the devs are trying to slow your progression. 60+ caches bought no full sets yet hasn’t been that bad in any of the previous events that combine s

Bought the game on release, quit because of cheaters and misrepresentation of game during E3 gameplay demonstration.

2 years later... This is the best looter - shooter available. Impressive.

I love the idea of this game. This had the potential of being one of the best ever creations. The problem at launch was slow response to problems like cheaters and massive downgrades. The things i wish were in the game were in implemented in Wildlands, like a NPC team and vehicles. The opening of the chest like in the E3 trailer was epic and when we found it in game to be nothing more that a color indicator was so cheap feeling after all that hype. I want a Division 2. i want it to allow use to further progress on our current characters, have 1 or more NPCs to hang with on solo play, we need actual writers working a a story instead of boring characters with no depth. I want to feel scared trying to serve not just from fire fights, but food, water and maintaining a position like the current Base, but with needing to resupply it or people die type of feeling. I would like to see the environment change and react to our good deeds and clean up with people out and about making our progress feel real. What is up with having the game in NYC and all buildings are closed off. No dame vertical play whats so ever. Setting up ambushes from a multi floor building would be epic or encountering one we need to fight against. adding stealth would be a massive plus like in Wildlands, i.e. PRONE stance plz! It would be cool to randomly encounter NPCs engaging in firefights that we can assist, this would help make the world feel alive. Why cant and cars work, did the virus have a EMP effect on all cars? The class tree are way to small, not enough depth or unique enough. Why are all NPCs from friendlies to enemies all looking the same, isn't this a AAA game? Are we that lazy in 2017/2018 that that old style of creation is acceptable? I want to care about my character and those around me, but the relationship can not be forced.

Well i'm kind of tired of farming for missing gear sets. I have been regularly farming and buying the GE caches, only to get obsolete gear and other sh** items. 75 caches and 100k plus, and i still havent gotten all 4 sets. Friends of mine got it with around 30 cases. This is soo unballanced withe the droprate. Its like u are taunting me and not giving me my 2 last backpacks grrrrr. Some of us have to work too u know? Frustrating like hell.

Hi guys loving the 1.8, I'm having an issue with boom boom my last commendation for strike I'm not sure if it's a bug but I've tried every way to kill the npc's using explosive rounds but still no joy :(..... Also my patch from the last ge assault event is in in my commendation ( flaming skull) but it's not in my patch menu to use, ,,,,, also in resistance when u have opened the carrier door the npc's who are behind the open door can still shoot you and in there favour they can destroy the gun turret

They really should specify bosses and thier drops . I agree with you !

I have the division for two days and checked all update but my Xbox still show me that the version of my game is 1.0.6xx.2317.
Any idea ?
Best regards M.

on the pc the pulse is not running all the duration that is mentioned in the skills menu. Critical damage and critical hit chance are not being applied when triggering the ability.
the classified striker is very strong and unbalanced the game. the stamina is something that spoils the game, should not have come back with it. we only have tank builds in the game now. unfortunate.

Hi,,,,,do you guy even respond to posts on here, I'm still waiting on a response from 2 weeks ago,, also my manhunt comadtion is glitch out done several manhunts and my number is still the same, this seems to be an issue with a lot of my friends

O up 1.8 está demais porém espero fielmente que a vinda do The Division 2 não faça que o ciclo de vida do The Division chegue ao fim, é um grande jogo e ainda tem muita coisa que pode ser criado para melhorar mais ainda.
Grande abraço para os desenvolvedores.:legal:
