Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-317588-16/state-of-the-game-january-18th-2018), Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau highlighted some community content and revealed the vanity masks for Global Event Ambush.

This week, Petter and Yannick are back with a quick update on Global Event Ambush and more community highlights.

If you missed the stream, you check out the VoD (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/222209576).


Today’s maintenance completed on schedule and resolved the following issues:

Completed Manhunts wouldn’t progress the “Manhunted” Commendation
Infinite enemies could be spawned while playing Resistance

We are monitoring the Classified gear-sets and how they perform throughout the game. Please keep in mind that Ambush’s Classified gear are still new, and we want more players to get hands-on to experiment with the meta.

With the Global Event live, we are re-introducing Stats With Yannick. Here is the amount of Global Event Tokens that have been earned in the first 48-hours of Ambush:


This translates to 4.3 million Superior Ambush Caches opened. We speculate that there are some players who are saving their Global Event Tokens or have not opened their caches just yet.

We received a Division-inspired fan fiction (https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12633386) written by Agent Saint (https://twitter.com/4g3ntS41nt). It highlights a London Division Agent diagnosed with diabetes. Thank you for sharing this story with us!

Lpariah (https://www.reddit.com/r/thedivision/comments/7siwoo/a_new_agents_photojournal/) is a new player to The Division who has just reached WT5. In an effort to expose more players to Manhattan’s landscapes, she compiled a Photo Journal (https://imgur.com/a/D6AZT) during the leveling process. There are some beautiful shots in the album!

Cheshire Cat (https://twitter.com/ccat1986) created something similar with her Polaroid Tour (https://twitter.com/ccat1986/status/953229500246093824) of Manhattan. The screenshots were edited into fantastic Polaroid stills for all your sightseeing needs.

We would also like to thank Agent Baundiesel (https://twitter.com/Baundiesel) for sending us a photo-book of his series of screenshots across The Division—#DivisionShots (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23divisionshots&src=typd).

SHD Umbra (https://twitter.com/SHD_Umbra/) combines Ghost Recon and The Division with his LVOA-C cosplay (https://twitter.com/SHD_Umbra/status/954747287393263616). Who says Ghosts cannot be SHD Agents too?


Agent Mabeobja (https://twitter.com/Agent_Mab) makes a return, showcasing her cosplay (https://twitter.com/Agent_Mab/status/955362022815756288) in the Dark Zone. Fun fact: this picture was taken all the way from Tokyo!


Ryoto (https://twitter.com/ryoto0309) also submitted a cosplay (https://twitter.com/ryoto0309/status/955420677015654400) all the way from Tokyo. Enemy LMB have been spotted roaming the snowy streets.


Keeping with the theme of snow, Tri_San (https://twitter.com/tri_san) showcases another Division Agent cosplay (https://twitter.com/tri_san/status/955566244576378880) while shoveling!


Orbital Thunder (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCle8JRLhUnagIcYDfWHZpxQ) produced a short-film based on The Division! The video features the Echo system in a captivating way. Well done!


TheRealCrazyJo (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFyOoKT_h0Cx7QhaEiGIBcQ) tours the International School in-game while commentating on the atrocities that transpired there.


Orenjiiro Sage (https://twitter.com/OrenjiiroSage) composed a song titled “Lawless” inspired by the chaos and anarchy that came with New York City’s collapse. We enjoyed every second of it!


As a reminder, we also feature community content monthly in our Agent Highlights (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-317030-16/agent-highlights-december-2017) articles!

So in the latest State Of The Game it was mentioned that the gear sets are working as intended. I find this absolutely ridiculous seeing as rogue agents are dropping players in the DZ in 2/3 shots with their RIDICULOUSLY OVERPOWERED striker/shotgun builds. The set is fast becoming the goto build to take agents down because it's that broken, it's like 2.4 all over again.

To Ubisoft,

So i want to talk about the timing of global events, which is the main source of getting the classified gear now. I and alot of my friends work away on a 7 days on 7 days off roster. Now for every global event so far ive been working and not able to participate. How can this be fair for all gamers who may not be able to play for this scheduled week? Im sure im in a minority here but it would be great if i could actually have a chance of playing in one of these global events.

Maybe extend global events to 2 weeks or something??

Maybe stop censoring?
