Interesting article about problems with the Dark Zone

Postby Extreme_One » Tue Mar 15, 2016 7:59 am

Seems like the Dark Zone ain't currently very dark, but much more friendly than intended.

All explained here: http://kotaku.com/the-division-s-dark-z ... 1764822722

The current issue is that the punishment for going rogue is so severe that everyone has already decided not to do it. Going rogue is almost always a death sentence, and the rewards just aren’t worth the risk. As a result, most players will work really hard to avoid going rogue. Once you know that, it removes a lot of the tension from the Dark Zone.


I also saw a couple of players accidentally go rogue while shooting at NPCs; the other players let them live until their rogue timer expired. There was a sort of unspoken agreement that we were all just farming loot and no one wanted to be a jerk about it. It was actually fascinating and tense, if ultimately anticlimactic.


I wonder how they're going to rebalance for that. :?

Yeah, they definitely need to make it more appealing. I'm level 8 and rank 15 in the dark zone just going around killing NPCs. There are a few people that do go rogue I see around but are swiftly taken down....

Maybe did a little side mission ;) TBO the reason why I leveled was cause we're all close to level 8 anyways and the Darkzone is hard at level 7 as the lowest NPC was Purple lvl10 :twisted:

... If I really wanted to Rambo I would have been lvl30 by now ;)

The only way to make rogue worth it is to have better loot I guess.
You have just been killed by the Twins, stay down you Muvafocker!
