    The Dark Zone is what turned me off of D1. You can go play in the DZ but only flag if you want to take the loot or have a pvp mission. It still means you don't get good loot unless you flag and that frustrated me. It seems like it's going to work exactly the same way in this game only there are 3 zones instead of 1.

    The problem is I don't want to pvp at all and the premise that we're supposed to be the good guys but it's okay that there are "murder zones" just flies in the face of reality. Talk about killing the suspension of disbelief, it's bad, for me at least.

    Taking a pass on D2. Liked the PvE in D1 but got very tired of the bullet sponge combat. The DZ was great in concept but never did I find it what it was advertised to be. What the vids I have seen have shown, not just these, is that it is much the same as before. No intention to go back.

    Let's party like it is 1863!

    I loved the division, but it got to a point where I couldnt progress.  I would go into the DZ solo and try to team up.  Sometimes it was successfull, but most times it was just frustration.  A member of your team could go rogue and just melt you down.  Also getting ganked at the last second waiting for extraction was rage inducing.  Every PUG I tried for the higher level incurions or whatever they called ended in failure.  I think it would have been much better to have a solid group of friends to play with.  I will still be getting the second one because I enjoyed the leveling up and the lower level "dungeons".

    Fool me once shame on me... fool me twice...? I played The Division and it was so full of hackers I just gave up playing it. One shoting raid bosses... teleporting players. Thanks but no thanks.

    That's what I liked about DZ... how hard it was solo.
    I spent most of my time there solo... I loved dodging kill groups and extracting by myself.. avoiding ganks.. chasing down solo enemy players.

    DZ always had this amazing feel of constant danger.

    ..Cake..

    Sponging didn't bother me... but the TTK in D2 is lower which mitigates alot of the problems people had with spongingness.

    The Amazing recovery of div1 lawls, the only thing you should be asking ubisoft about is what they have done to stop the hacks aimbots and no recoil scripts... This site has gone to shit you for the publishers or the fans?
    LOL L2's new advertisement is wonderful..... 
    Take a step back in time and relive the original Lineage II experience as it was in the beginning. Create a classic hero from the original 5 races and 31 class options and jump into the nostalgic hardcore level grind where the rewards can outweigh the risks. It's your chance to experience the game the way it was when "hardcore" meant something!

    Wont buy until about a week after release, but looking forward to this. Had a good time in Div 1, expect just as much with this one.

    Played the last beta or only beta, hell I dunno. I stopped caring after I played it. It's just feels like the same game different area. Not to interested at this point.

    I really hope they add some kind of guild/clan support. In D1 it wasn't always easy to find groups. Especially under level 50. A guild system would be very welcomed. Especially for the DZ. Either way I can't wait to play this.
