As many fans of Tom Clancy’s The Division are probably aware at this point, the game’s Update 1.2 Conflict patch officially went live earlier this week, and it’s brought a fair share of problems to the third-person shooter. A bevy of game breaking bugs across the game’s platforms have cropped up, with some players reporting that the update has been deleting characters, while others describe encountering myriad issues with stability and matchmaking in multiple game modes.
On top of all this, The Division‘s daily missions were plagued yet again with an ever-persistent bug stopping them from refreshing since Update 1.2 released, which caused the developers at Ubisoft Massive to pull the servers down for maintenance in order to fix the issue. According to the studio, the maintenance was scheduled for May 26, at 11:00 AM CEST, 5:00 AM EDT, and 2:00 AM PDT, with it lasting around two hours.
Although the error has apparently been taken care of, this isn’t the first time The Division‘s daily missions have been broken. At the beginning of this month, in fact, Ubisoft Massive had to deploy a hot fix so as to rectify the problem. Not to mention, the issue has now occurred so regularly that developers even faced the glitch way back in April shortly after the game’s launch, with the bug rearing its ugly head, only to show up on a seemingly constant basis.
For those unaware, when The Division‘s daily missions are up and running perfectly, would-be Agents use them as a standard source for earning Phoenix Credits, which can then be exchanged for the whatever is currently the best High End gear, weapons, and blueprints being offered. Bearing this in mind, with the game feature in what now seems to be a constant state of disrepair, a lot of fans have been distressed by the problem to say the least.
On the face of it, The Division‘s nearly incessant experiences with complications have changed fans’ morale completely. Around the beginning of the title’s release, players were praising the action-MMO for its gameplay, but now it seems as if folks are leaving in droves due to the glitches, especially considering a recent report showing The Division‘s PC player base has dropped 81 percent since its launch. Plus, with many fans criticizing Clear Sky—that is, the military shooter’s latest Incursion—as being too easy and extremely short, it remains to be seen as to whether or not fans will stick around for the game’s paid DLC.
Did The Division‘s servers being taken down for the daily missions fix impede you from playing? Has the game’s almost never-ending waves of bugs dissuaded you from booting up the third-person shooter? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
