    Continous disconnections, DELTA 3 ERROR occurring too often, same dx 12 issues as the division 1, you do an instance with 3 people and suddenly you are alone because all crashed lol.

    The first maintenance they did fixed all delta 3 errors and disconnects.

    i hope too, but is ridicolous same issues of the division 1 happening also in the division 2. If they can't fix it just admit it, is less damaging than getting bad words because same bugs happen in all their games, and they act as they don't give a damn crap.

    The disconnects were a great concern when I first tried it and got booted every half an hour. But as it was maintenance the next day I gave it a chance and really had zero problems. Although, I assume they have different servers for different regions so there could be differences. I play from Europe btw.

    However, I was much more disappointed with the end game specializations. When I read about it, it looked like it's really a different class and gameplay, but those extra weapons are kinda meh. Also, the gagets are worse than in division 1, at least those we had access to. They all have super long CD and do very little. But I suppose I will pick it up, just not right away.

    Europe too, while free roaming and main missions gave me no problems, the end game was a continue DELTA 3 error until the end of the beta.

    In all fairness the devs had already stated that there were known connection issues when they released the private beta so it was to be expected.

    I'm not concerned about the disconnections, more from same bugs in different games. It's a beta, so all kind of issues are to be expected. But since i already tried the game and was not pleaseant at least for me, if it stays like this in open beta too no ty, i had enough.. I have anthem to mess with luckily, it was far more pleasent experience in beta in my case. I didn't expect to be so smooth, really positively surprised.

    I had practically zero issues playing the private beta.. like, nothing. I didn't play as long or party like I'm sure others did, but never got disconnected, and never had any crashing or anything else. Played better than many fully released games afaic.

    Same, the only issue I had was sporadic missing audio on some guns (M16 was one).

    Other than that, played all weekend with no other problems to speak of (same for the people I played with), can't wait for release.

    I also took part in the Techinal Aplha and performance wise the closed beta
    was much much better. I had no disconnections, but I did have crashes when using DX12.
    When I switched to DX11 I had no issues. It's the same thing in The Divison .. DX12 plays like crap while DX11 just works.
    I'm beginning to suspect nvidia plays a part in the DX12 mess, since no AMD users (I know) are having issues with DX12.

    I didn't have much time to play private beta but the part i played was working good and most of the time without issues. The only two problems i had were related to third-party things like msi afterburner's osd (game was crashing on launch when afterburner was already running but i figured out workaround for this) and easyantycheat which didn't have on its whitelist "rgbfusion.exe" and was preventing game from launch, i had to kill this process from task manager then eac was letting me start the game.

    Performance wise game runs pretty good, i do not know if i am alone on this but high resolution sky textures are killing performance for almost no visual improvement which you can see here:

    Tonga is getting old. Those settings are a no-go for the 380.

    Totally agree, i'm waiting for navi but seems like i will have to wait long and maybe on this way i will pick up sooner 580 or vega56/64. Time will tell.

    580 8gb is 180$, thats a steal and it will run it 60fps most of the time. I did the same and also waiting for Navi is easier then. ;)
