With the amount of shit they caught for the Rikers faction, I wouldn't be surprised. People freaking out about escaped inmates being bad guys while not batting an eye at the NYC Sanitation Department becoming a terrorist organization was one of those loose hope in humanity moments for me.Can we talk about The Division 2 here? Because I have a contact who's been playing the closed beta and he says that
1. the enemy faction is almost entirely white guys
2. nearly every friendly NPC is a woman, usually a colored one
3. if there is a male friendly NPC then he's almost always getting yelled at by a strong independent womyn of color
Yeah, after my wee bit of a tirade, I decided I wasn't going to DSP it and call it quits. I went back at the demo and tried looking at it in different ways, experimenting just how much I can manipulate the AI and how far I can pull the boundaries of a fire fight so it is doable, but the game and the grenadiers do make things a bit annoying, but I suppose that's there to prevent people who would prefer to snipe from a distance (like me).I dunno about it fucking you over if you don't play in co-op, I soloed some shit and came out quite alright, including the grenade launcher guys. Infact, I was kinda wondering if I've gotten too good because of Division 1 or if the combat was too easy. Also, I think with how it was easy to pin point enemies in Division 1 was because they wore bright colors or this grey background, here with how lush and colorful the scenery is they will blend together since they do wear somewhat more bright looking clothing.
I was watching demo gameplay earlier and noticed they also disabled most of the gadgets. There's no way that shit isn't ready a month before launch so the only reason I can think of is that they want to tease the players who got free codes because a real "beta" would enable everything for testing.The confusing thing about Division 2 is that the demo has disabled the ping powers. Y'know, that super fucking helpful feature from Division where your HUD would highlight hostiles who are otherwise a bitch to spot when they're crouched behind a car at dusk? That's probably my biggest aggravation with the demo, I'll be walking down a street and nearly in the laps of a bunch of gang members before I can actually spot them, and I spend a solid minute in every fight trying to find where the last fucking guy is hiding so I can shoot him and keep going.
