BioWare's entry into the Destiny/Division market. Haven't seen anything since the short scripted demo video at last year's e3, until, finally, a long promo/q&a segment ending today's ea play event, and now the release date is official: 2/22/19

Should be a lot more info this week, it's clearly their focus this year. Will post more as I find it.

So i jumped on last night for 2 hours and really enjoyed the Cataclysm event. Was playing with random's on GM1, and ended up getting a bunch of masterwork items and some of the yellow ones (epic?). If you guys are on PC/Origin, add me, I need help understanding what to do to get max score, etc on these.

There are some good guides out there. YourAnthem videos are probably my personal favorite.

Basically do the 4 arenas and then hope everybody else knows to do challenges and not just rush straight to vara.

The loot system has completely ruined the Cataclysm for me.

I just bought 130 war chests. I've bought about 250 total, between the two weeks and including the challenges.

I wanted 3 legendary items out of those 250 war chests: detonator melee and arctic tomb for ranger, and steam vent for storm.

That's all. 3 things.

What I got were 3-5 legendary copies of every other melee weapon and piece of gear, but not the three items that I wanted.

What's the point in even playing if there's no way to get the specific things you want?

I almost just deleted the game. I don't think I've ever been this frustrated and angry in almost 40 years of gaming.

I have a nearly perfect rolled Arctic tomb and it's highly underwhelming. Perfect that is if u want a high damage roll on a non damage gear piece.

After opening about the same amount of chests as you have on my next to last roll All I wanted was a Leg Steam vent and I got it with 200% gear charges and 19% suit dmg.

I do feel ya though before I started running endlessly on GM3 My entire gearset sucked, just in the last few days i've managed to roll a ton of high dmg and near perfect rolled gear. No idea what gives other than just switching exclusively to GM3 mode.

I don't think it bothers me now so much that I didn't get specific items, but that I got so many copies of some things, but didn't get everything.

It's the same issue I have with drops in general. Like yesterday. My Ranger doesn't have all the class gear, he only has 1 class component, I'm missing nearly half of the universal components, and I still don't have three of the original weapons. So 4 legendaries drop, and 3 of them are repeat items. With all of that stuff that I'm missing...

And then I got 6 legendaries on my other 3 javelins, combined. All repeat items.

It didn't bother me so much during the first month, even two months. But I have hundreds and hundreds of hours played now, and there's no way for me to guarantee acquisition of anything...

And the war chests just make it worse. Opening one is like asking how I'll be disappointed this time. I don't even get excited when I see the item is legendary.

It's those surprise mechanics EA thinks we're in love with. I've been a fan of RNG since the early days but most games do it wrong. Division 2 and Anthem have unforgiving RNG.

Back in the day a game like Diablo 2 had similar rng BUT you could actually trade for what you needed which made a HUGE difference. You might keep getting the same Legendary piece and another dude get's the piece you wanted over and over not a problem just trade him gear.
