Thoughts on: The Division
The Division has been out for almost a week and there are a few people who have already reached the end game. I am a fan of the game, but I always feel jealous of all these people who can play games for a living and reach those milestones first. In other ways though I don’t mind taking my time. With those words in mind, I still believe that there are a few things that could be improved for the game.
I am only level 17 in The Division so far and level 5 in the Dark Zone and so far I have no problems with the game, I feel like I still have half the game to explore, the story is good, the gameplay is good, and the exploration of the game itself is pretty awesome. Even still, I think the game could use a little more rooftop action. There are a few rooftops you can reach but it’s only a little ways off the ground, how about we get to explore a skyscraper that’s been taken over by rioters? Or the cleaners? Or any of the bad guy factions culminating in a rooftop battle against a helicopter…..add an RPG or Rocket launcher for this area only too.
Speaking of which, what about adding a combat area that allows the use of vehicles. Nothing fancy, no need for jets and helicopters, just cars and Humvees shooting at each other out the window. It sounds ridiculous but I’m sure someone could refine the idea and make it work. Along the same lines maybe The Division needs a vs mode that isn’t the Dark Zone, like Squad vs Squad or 4 Squads vs each other or a free for all Dark Zone style, those are popular. I don’t think I would play it personally but it would give the fan base something to do at the end game.
Speaking of the Dark Zone, I read about how a certain amount of people have already reached the end game and now have nothing left to do besides either quit or troll the heck out of everyone else in the Dark Zone. I had a thought about this, what if these people played a “fair” game of turning rouge and helping everyone get some awesome weapons? Here is my thought. These people could go farm up some awesome weapons and carry them around then turn rouge then the manhunt begins and they just try to survive for fun, meanwhile the rest of the server tries to kill them to get these awesome weapons they drop if killed. I can see many drawbacks to this, but if it became an official gameplay mode then I could see it working.
Those are just some thoughts about how I think The Division could be improved a bit. These probably would not be popular options for everyone, but I am sure some people would play them. What do you guys think? Would you play these modes or participate in these types of missions? Let me know in the comments.
