I finally picked up The Division since that's seemingly the only multiplayer game my friends are playing; I have idea how the hell you're supposed to play it if you don't already know people who have maxed out to level 30. I'm up to 18 and it still feels like I can get killed at the drop of a hat.

That game is basically designed for level 30 players. Unless you can find the three people on earth who aren’t level 30 and party up with them, you’re going to have to solo your way to the level cap. Or do missions with your friends and have them drag you through to get the xp

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm doing. On my own it took me all weekend to get just from level 1 to level 4. Playing with 3 of my maxed out friends on Monday night took me from 4 to 18 in less than 3 hours. I think I killed a total of, like, 4 guys with my terrible weapons.

I haven't played that game in a while but are you playing missions on a higher difficulty? I forgot if there was a scaling issue too (You are level 4 but your buddies are 30 so all enemies are level 30)

The other thing I remember is that weapons don't scale well at all. You cant use the same gun for too long because its Damage falls off quick and you have to be constantly using higher level stuff.

On my own? Whatever the default difficulty is. But with my friends I let one of them be the leader specifically so we can play on the hardest level so that I get max XP.

The biggest thing that still throws me solo are the bad guys who rush you; I keep thinking there's some kind of melee attack I can use, unfortunately. I'll lose track of one of those chargers and suddenly I'm getting clobbered from behind because he's looped all the way around to where I am.

Looks like they are trying to make it more realistic, but it’s awfully fun to build your player up to 99’s in everything. The new system is for the better, though

I’m going to wait to buy MLB18 until I find out if they have fit Schwarber or not. Someone report back ASAP.

Also the new RTTS is stupid. My life is all too real, when I play video games I want the fantasy me.

Probably 90 percent of the time I allotted myself to play videogames in 2017 was spent on my diamond dynasty team.

All I know is that DD let me create a team called the Bangkok Mummies with hideous all purple uniforms and the Greendale emblem as their logo, so for that alone it is good.

Ah, that's my biggest gripe with DD. For some reason the game refuses to let me name my team the Dongsville Dongers.
