How about you fix the ammo drops?
Ran 2 invaded missions and both strongholds and got 1 specialization ammo drop...

Thats the question a asked myself also.
Last Saturday i think also was something like that.

But making something twith the loot frustration ... not even giving a real answer .... there u get just a "we noticed that there is a problem" and that after one week.

I rly dont understand that company.
Stupid nerfs in all possible ways ... not fixing bugs ... killing all "positiv bugs" as fast as possible ... nerfing droprates to get less rewards ...

Somehow it feels like ubisoft allready said to them self: "The game is **** and all will leave it anyway ... so just test now how much u can do till the point is reached the last ones lwill go"

I rly cant understand it.

Seems like you guys shut the server down every day !!! Even during the early access that most of us paid extra to get !!!!! This is getting old real fast !!!! This bug was not game breaking. How about the bug when you die and get picked up you canít move until you die again !!! I mean come on. Hurry up and fix something that Helps players but donít do squat about the other game breaking issues that screw gameplay up. Like shutting the servers down every dam day !!! Iíll admit you guys got me good to purchase early access expecting to play uninterrupted. Only too deal with server shutdowns. I figured Iíd let that slide. Thinking it would end. But no it just keeps happening. Donít think I will every purchase something like that again from you guys.

Ran 3 missions and two strongholds and was firing grenades all over the place.

If you go back to base and swap out and back into your specialisation it works fine.

Because some things can be fixed server side with a Hot Fix and some stuff requires an actual Patch to be pushed out. They have to find the route of the issue, fix the issue and then test to make sure the fix doesn't break anything else.

Come on guys...It's getting worse and worse! Stop doing this things. i understand this isn't single player game but we got in place where we have servers down waaaay to often and that wont be good for a community. You'll lose players. I really think you should do this in 4am, each week for different time zone. 13:30 or 9:30 is terrible timing

fix the special ammo drop rate and let us keep what does drop. Every time Iím in a mission I pick up one maybe 2 ammo but if I donít use it during the mission I lose it so canít build it up to max

So that you get one shot is to your advantage?
Yeah, doesn't makes sense.
Special ammo was fixed yesterday, played a few missions and had to leave ammo behind.

Ubisoft I need your help to check because when I raise a point through a modifier in attack (red), defense (blue) or skill (yellow), do not count, do not add up.
I put points with modifiers in my team and they do not add up.
I hope you can help me
Thank you

They want to drag the content out so will near instantly fix any exploits or bugs that benefit the players but any issues that slow down progress of players getting through content they will purposefully not be motivated to fix in a timely fashion. Big gaming developers always do this whereas with smaller more honest indie developers they will go out of their way to fix all issues in a timely manner. This is sad.

They should learn from Blizzard Entertainment (Activision Blizzard) Implement a system where fixes can be applied without shutdowns, and only restart if it is absolutely necessary

You guys are quick when is something that advantage the player but we can't get the ammo drop, the workbench, the revive hive and many other thing fixed..... Now all the ennemis after the maintenance become the next level rusher today.... they just all run towards you you barely have time to kill one....

Wow amazing how quickly they can instafix a "bug" that is actually benefiting players. Yet the damn special ammo are still not dropping....I have only gotten 2 ammo drops since Thurs of LAST WEEK. That is with playing multiple ours each day...doing a variety of activities and missions.

They need to come clean with whatever nerf to special ammo they were trying to sneak in last week.

Dude, that is not a benefit to the players, you are being 1 shotted in dz with this bug.

How about fixing the Hardwired blueprints so that they actually craft near our characters Gear Score so that they are actually usable I crafted two the other day Hardwired Gloves crafted at 457 and a Hardwired Mask crafted at 451, I Gear Score 510 so these blueprints instantly became useless and a complete waste of time grinding to get them in the first place!!

The Hardwired blueprints have a crafting range of 450 - 500 so 451 is pathetic!! I'm sure it's broken! It's the same for all the High End blueprints also they craft too low to be of any real use save for as a stepping stone while increasing Gear Scores! What is the point of having a crafting system like this?

The Hardwired blueprints require some major grinding to get and so do their crafted items some dropped first time but others especially the Bank HQ took 14+ runs to get it to drop, then you have to get them all over again + the 10 Hardwired tech each to craft each one, you can see that is soon starts to get stupid, in fact a massive grind fest as you try to get them to drop of a usable level and they as a set are not very good for anything other than a skill build!!

Who thought this through???

sorry Massive, but that's not okay

Are you stupid? The bug with special ammo was introduced 7 days ago and they already patched in some changes for it yesterday (meaning they addressed it in 4 days because developers have weekends too... That's 3 days to identify the source, write a fix, QA it, and get it pushed to three platforms the following morning). The AI 'bug' is not an actual bug but rather a oversight (scales too hard in higher tiers) in the AI's aggression algorithm and is not a quick fix.

The bug that was fixed today allowed players to 1 hit all NPC's or even players if in the DZ. On top of the extreme priority in that, a streamer showed them exactly how to replicate the issue which is why they were able to identify and hotfix it so quickly.

Ok give you todays hotfix was probably important....but as for the special ammo... I am going on 7days of playing 4+ hours per day and in all that time I have gotten a total of 2 special ammo and drops (on Saturday)....since yesterdays patch I have gotten zero. Its hardly fixed...and something that worked perfectly fine before so should be rather easy/quick to undo. But the fact, they do not want to undo since the problem is a result of some "hidden" change to the mechanics of special ammo they tried to put in with the big patch last week.

The only reason this is not really a big deal to me is that my special weapon is really not worth using...which is a entirely different problem.

Played last night and was fine but now as of this posting I'm unable open loot crates, use previously deployed rappel ropes, open doors, fast travel to safe houses won't let me out because doors won't let me or auto open. Game is unplayable. Xbox 1x

Update: full Xbox restart (3rd times a charm I guess) seemed to fix all issues

That's not how coding works though. They introduced new code (Tidal Basin) which broke old code (launch state). Now either new code needs to be changed, or old code needs to be changed. Getting them to both work together is the problem, and apparently they've yet to find a solution for all platforms (who knows maybe they havent even found one solution for any platform yet), so they cannot implement a patch to correct yet.

You didn't think that comment through well enough obviously. Many people have jobs or other obligations that cause them to have smaller windows to play the game. You may have 24/7 to play as much as you like but most don't. So if one works and comes home to play for a couple hours at most and the servers are down I can understand their frustration. Not to mention the last time I opened the game it crashed to desktop 2 times within 15 minutes with no error message so I just didn't even take the time loading back in the game and went to do something else. I waited for years to play div 1 and hoped div 2 would be better. Just like fallout 76 (which was worse honestly, I played 2 days and thats it after spending $89.99 on my edition) I see this as another waste of money. I am most likely done buying games all together. Let the 12 year old kids have these games as a service dumpster fires because they were not alive during the 90s when real games were made. It's sad that I have to walk away from games. I never thought that day would come.

Actually, that is the first time I feel really disappointed for one game
The bug damage the player spent a long time to fix / without a fix
The bug benefit the player you fix it immediately
For me, the workbench cannot upgrade and stock in 200, even I already in world tier 5
I just see you just fix some buff problem, I mean some of the problems not really break this game
and the problem needs to face with and you just ignore it :)

Good job Ubi :):):):)

My team has had the same issue. I chatted with someone in Customer Support, and they suggested reinstalling the game. No joy. I assume that yesterdayís patch gooned up the system. They did tell me that they are trying to track down and correct the issue. Would be nice if there was a little transparency.

Wow, incredible that a game that was release a month ago still have this kind of problems... Should bought another game on another store. GG Ubi.

I have more than the recommanded configuration with an RTX2080 + 1Giga Internet speed...

They should refund the game if we ask for it because it's totally unplayable.

We can't play the game so you're better off taking the game down and patching it. As a developer, I understand the importance of testing before releasing into a production environment. But you guys don't seem to have a good strategy for that. It seems like you guys would rather test in a live environment because the problems we're experiencing should have been caught way before the last patch got deployed. I can't believe all the crap I've had to deal with. I spent 120 bucks on a game that I've had nothing but issues with. I work all week and usually look forward to the weekends because it's the only chance I have to play video games. But you guys have made it impossible. I always donate to open source projects because I truly understand and appreciate the hard work and dedication that goes into developing software. But that also means that I refuse to give money to those who don't care about their user's experience. Get your **** together or Ubisoft won't get another dime from me.

#FACTS

I'm in the same boat as you. I barely have time to play, but now that I have time, I have to deal with this BS. The games in the 90s were solid. I'm about to just shut my Xbox down and jump on Ocarina of Time.

I definitely agree with and approve the last few comments I have read in this thread. Today was my first time ever playing a Division game and most likely my last.

I just purchased the gold edition of The Division 2 for $80 dollars TODAY. And have had nothing but problems (Delta-03 errors occurring at random times and now the Final Epiphany Safe House issue where there's no way to get in to acquire the agent's note along with some more random Delta-03 errors).

I work all week and basically only have Saturday and Sunday morning to game. This is unacceptable Ubisoft... I feel ripped off and fleeced right now and this probably going to be the last time, I support this company after this mishap.

We are basically being used as Guinea pigs for an unfinished product that is really still in beta masquerading as being a finished product.

Fix your servers or get new developers, that know what they're doing. And please fix these type of issues before releasing to retail. I can't even enjoy an $80 game purchase... Thanks.

I'm still having issues with this damn game. I couldn't play at all this weekend. What a waste. I wanna know in what world the decisions makers are living in that they think it's okay to push patches on a weekend, when the number of PAYING customers trying to play will be higher? My IT Director would be scrubbing toilets if he allowed us to push patches into our production environment that hadn't been thoroughly tested. ESPECIALLY during peak times. How does that make any sense? How do I go about getting a refund?
