Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-322031-16/state-of-the-game-april-19th-2018), Community Developer Petter Mårtensson was joined by Senior Design Lead Paul Turland and Designer James Norris from Ubisoft Leamington to discuss the recent update and the upcoming Global Event Blackout as well as showcasing more excellent entries to the #EmojiAgent (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23EmojiAgent&src=tyah) challenge.

This week, Petter and Yannick provided an update on the connectivity issues players have been experiencing In the last couple of days, announced the extension of the ongoing Global Event and showcased a couple of recent community creations.

If you weren't able to catch the stream live, we got you covered with the Twitch VoD (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/254689587).


In the last couple of days, players have been experiencing connectivity issues resulting in delta errors. Improvements were made on Tuesday evening and the issue should be fully resolved as of today. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period.

As these issues occurred during the Global Event, we decided to extend Blackout by a full week. It was scheduled to end on April 30th, but will now run up until the 7th of May.

As a quick reminder, during Blackout you are able to get your hands on the Classified versions of the DeadEYE, D3-FNC, Striker’s Battlegear & Tactician’s Authority gear sets as well obtain these new vanity masks for your agent.


Blackout - Always active. Agents are equipped with Shock Ammo that stuns enemies. Shooting or running builds your Charge meter. The more Charge, the more damage you inflict.
Extreme Blackout - Blackout behavior, plus you can instantly kill enemies with Overcharged melee attacks, but if you miss you will stun yourself and your allies.
Total Blackout - Extreme Blackout behavior, plus your Charge meter will cool down faster when close to other group members.

We also wanted to share a couple of great community creations this week, starting with this cosplay video from @CrankyPitfall (https://twitter.com/CrankyPitfall) where Division Agent alikakeks (https://www.facebook.com/alikakeks) is clearing an abandoned warehouse with her trusty G36. We thought that the log-in sequence in particular was a nice touch.


Elite Task Force member @THEaquemeni (https://twitter.com/THEaquemeni) created this unique take on the #EmojiAgent challenge. #MadLOVE to you, agent!

Please consider re-run the event on Monday instead of extend the event. End as the original scheduled Monday and give out the rewards, then re-run the event the same day for a week, so that we don't have to wait another week for the rewards.
