The Division 2 is seeking applicants for an Elite Task Force to improve the online shooter

    
7

It worked out for the last game apparently, so maybe it’ll work for this one too: The Division 2 is looking to form up an Elite Task Force of community members to speak with the devs in Malmö, Sweden, with the aim of improving the online shooter’s gameplay and features.

This so-called Elite Task Force Echo is looking to bring over players who can provide constructive feedback directly to the team. Members of this Task Force will get the opportunity to look at plans for future updates and discuss a variety of matters related to the shooter such as endgame RPG, loot, PvP, and inventory matters. Of course, all of this will be strictly under an NDA, so potential applicants are also going to have to know how to keep quiet and sign an affidavit confirming as much.

This is not the first time that the devs of The Division have utilized a group of players for help; the first game put out a similar call for an Elite Task Force and their feedback resulted in some game-changing updates to the shooter. If you’d like to be among those looking to legitimately help the game out, you can check the forum post for a link to an application. The Task Force workshop is scheduled for September 4th through the 6th, with all travel, lodging, and food expenses handled by the devs. You will, however, need to ensure you’ve got appropriate travel documents.

I think one problem is the dark zone loot seeing that only exotics mostly there why am I only allowed to use the helicopter to extract contaminated stuff when you play alone there are roving teams of agents that sit around these points to kill you and take your gear why cant I leave I leave out the door with the contaminated gear, I much rather try to get to the door then going to an drop zone that announces that I’m there waiting for the helicopter to arrive/leave.

Primary issue is loot, which I’ve always found interesting because it’s the exact same issue Anthem has, but for some reason TD2 got a pass from the media on it while Anthem got publicly and loudly lambasted.

Second issue is the bullet sponge nature of the enemies in a game that is supposed to be a tactical shooter.

Biggest problem this game has is Ghost Recon Breakpoint. That game looks to address both of the above issues and have more varied gameplay to boot.

The main problem with Div 2 is lack of content.

Sure, it has other issues – loot, difficulty, the usual game bugs – all of which wouldn’t matter if the content was their to keep you occupied. I have around 500 hours and the last 50-100 was a struggle.

What content that is in the game is great, and the latest addition was fun – but not enough and they took it out on ‘rotation’. Ummm, WTF?

It also has no endless type mode like they added with Div 1 – because they apparently know better *rolls eyes*

Anywho, I’ll go back for each new contrent drop, but it lacks any sticking power with a mode that is fun to endlessly grind, and they don’t way to pay for (I can only assume anyway) for a constant stream of content in quick time.

Maybe if the development team wouldn’t have dumped the original design doc in favor of what the series has become, they wouldn’t need to figure out why people play, beat the content then leave. The announcement of this franchise and what it became is so completely different

That’s good. I dropped Division 2 a few weeks after launch. It was pretty rough. I’m hoping the next title update that revamps inventory management will be worthwhile enough for a reinstall.
