Amazon Prime Day 2019: The Division 2 Price Dropped Heavily (US)
Ubisoft's The Division 2 is a solid game to grab a few friends and hop into. It offers exciting shooting and a whole lot of content to work your way through. With teammates alongside you, it is a great game if you like your shooters tactical and full of loot that makes you progressively more powerful and cooler looking. As part of Amazon's Prime Day 2019 sale, both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of The Division 2 are available for $20. That's cheap enough that you could convince a few friends to take a shot on it alongside you.
This is the standard version of the game, but Ubisoft has been supporting the game heavily since launch. This means that, if you like what you play in the base game, there's more for you to check out should you wish to continue gunning your way to helping society rebuild itself.
In his The Division 2 review, Ed Tran said, although the narrative underpinning the game is lacking, "the strength of the systems and design that fuel The Division 2 as a game are compelling enough to keep you captivated for dozens [of hours]. The range of enemy types continues to keep combat encounters challenging, the equipment I earn and pick up continues to feel different, valuable, and asks me to consider new ways of play.
"The ravaged environments continue to intrigue, and sometimes they're so stunning I find myself needing to take screenshots before I move on. It might not have much to say, but The Division 2 is a perpetual cycle of tension, relief, and reward that's difficult to stay away from."

Fallout 76 has brought radical economic change to the wasteland
07.15.2019 07:00:10 From VG247: "The global economy dissolved in the same moment as the global community the telephone transmission waves that had pinged between bond traders across oceans replaced by nuclear warheads. Governments and infrastructure, the things that had given the stern faces on the bank notes meaning, crumbled and rusted. The people clung to the only currency capitalism had left for them, the non-degradable bottle caps from the soda pop bottles that stuck around like cockroaches in the wasteland."
GoldenEye 007 reportedly was so good that Valve changed Half-Life over it
07.15.2019 06:00:11 It shouldnt come as a surprise that GoldenEye 007 influenced a lot of FPS games that came after. But a story is now making the rounds about how the game directly influenced the development of another FPS masterpiece: Half-Life by Valve.
Would you be interested in a "single-player narrative-driven" The Division 2 spin-off?
07.15.2019 06:00:11 The Division 2's creative director, Julian Gerighty, has asked fans of Ubisoft's third-person shooter what they think about an idea to base a single-player game within The Division's expansive universe.
The idea was floated by TT Games' level director, Tim Spencer, who tweeted (thanks, PC Gamer): "I love the idea of a single player narrative driven spin-off of The Division Game. Focusing on an agent trying to get home to their family after being sent to NYC, during the SHD blackout from the fall of DC. TLOU x Division."
The Division 2 Second Raid Details, Community Sends Out Survey for First Raid
If you’re one of the many people who have already finished The Division 2’s first-ever raid, you might be looking forward to the next one, and here’s our early details about it. Over on The Division subreddit, user JokerUnique posted a few details regarding The Division 2 second raid.
Raid 2: The Foundry
The second 8-player raid will take place in “The Foundry”. This raid will be more raw, aggressive and “bad stuff is going to happen”. You will face the True Sons as your main adversary and they are building big and new weapons there. That is about all we know at this point.
In addition to that, the community (not Ubisoft) released a survey on what can be improved and so on. There’s about 60 questions in it, so make sure you have enough time to complete it.
The goal is to receive honest feedback regarding The Division 2’s Raid, both in terms of positive and negative experiences you’ve had during the gameplay. This is a chance for you to leave our detailed opinions. When working together as a community, we can leave balanced feedback and have a positive impact on the development of the next encounter.
Again, this is a survey by the community and not by Ubisoft themselves, but given how active the studio has been with the community, chances are they’ll read it and use the feedback for the game’s future.
07.14.2019 17:00:09 Godhood takes place in a vibrant, primal world where players take on the role of a newborn deity, developing their own religion from scratch, all while managing their followers and challenging any other gods that stand in their way.
Rumor: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale Info and Spec Ops Details, PvPvE Modes Mentioned
Remember when we posted that rumor about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting a battle royale mode? While nothing has been confirmed (or debunked), given the info we’ve gotten so far from TheGamingRevolution has proven to be legit, we’re going to roll with it. This time, a ton of Modern Warfare battle royale info and Spec Ops details have been revealed!
– Around 3 months ago Raven software started developing Battle royale (The date might not be dead accurate since TGR’s info is not the most updated) IW are still overseeing the BR mode.
– Locations in BR are a combination of spec ops maps and old locations from previous MW games, like MP maps and Sp missions.
– The BR map is also used in spec ops to give a Semi open world experience.
– The BR map is ENORMOUS in scale, it has mountains that are towering over you, Giant cities, it is “Phenomenal nad its much larger on scale than blackout
– There is a f2p component in the game might be spec ops or BR.
– There is an armor system within spec ops similar to BR, and you are also able to earn special killstreaks by doing special objectives in CO-OP.
– TGR clarifies that the maps are actually not the exact same between spec ops and BR
Modern Warfare Spec Ops Info:
– Initially Infinity ward planned to have zombies mode for spec ops, but that idea was scrapped 1.5 years into development.
– there were around 10 spec ops maps made and 20 missions for each, a lot of missions are reused between maps.
– Some mission will be saved for post launch updates, which suggests spec ops getting updates through the year.
– Spec ops mission will have the traditional difficulties, (recruit, regular etc..)
– You can select Spec ops missions from the menu or Go to the mission location on the open world map.
– Besides spec ops missions you also have different co op modes, like PvPvE 8v8 / 16v16, you will be fighting players and A.I’s.
– Right now there is no star system
– You play as the operators from Multiplayer in spec ops, they do not affect gameplay
– There are around 20 operators in the game, one is a OP similar to Putin but looks younger, And there is another operator played by Marshawn Lynch.
– In spec ops you have the option to play both sides of the conflict, Americans or Russians.
– Right now there is not much story in spec ops, Or the story assets are currently missing and will be added on later.
– There is likely going to be 20 mp maps on launch.
– Price is Involved in spec ops in some way, not a playable character.
– There was a PvPvZ (zombies) the mode was scrapped, might be added if IW plans a zombies event similar to WW2 and BO4. And even IW with Halloween scream.
– IW also reused the Zombies assets to build the 10 spec ops missions but scrapped that 10 months ago and replaced them with Normal AI’s and again this might come back in an update.
– The create a class system in spec ops is similar to MP. On top of the regular create a class, in spec ops you have ‘set classes’ These are not designated to specific OP’s, TGR doesnt have the full list but there are a lot of classes, one is a medic, It has auto revive box, its skill is “instant revive”. The tank class has a special issue which is a shielded turret and its skill is team armor, assault class, its special issue is a grenade launcher and its skill is infinite ammo for 5 seconds. Engineer has a special issue which is a recon drone and TGR’s source cant remember his skill. And finally there is another class that tgrs source couldnt remember the name of which his special issue is a Cruise missile which is a killstreak in MP but its a special issue in spec ops and he cant remember the skill.
– When you spawn in to the spec ops map its just like BR, you jump out of an AC 130 and parachute down to the destination.
– The different streaks are tied to the class you have chosen. and when you spawn in to a mission you can only use the streak once, after that you have to loot around the map to find another killstreaks.
– In spec ops you have to find boxes of ammo, armor and killstreaks within the open map, you cant replenish ammo another way. if you run out of equipment ammo armor etc… you have to find them in the open world map.
– If you kill a juggernaut with a mini gun in spec ops you can pick up that mini gun and use it as a 3rd weapon.
– There are rescue, escort, ac 130 missions and more.
– You can earn money in spec ops as well, the money carries over through all modes, MP, BR, SPEC OPS.
– “Gun bench: your gun is placed on a table and you have about 9 attachments to chose from, but can only chose 5. Weapon perk is bonus. Right now all guns can have any attachment and they aren’t limited to classes. This could change”
Same as before, none of the info above has been confirmed by Activision or Infinity Ward, and as such, should be taken with a grain of salt. Having said that, TGR has been quite reliable with the Modern Warfare leaks, so there is a good possibility that the majority (if not all) the info above is accurate.
DICE Comments on Battlefield 5 Invisibility Bug, Here
While DICE has issued a new Battlefield 5 patch for the Xbox One this past week to address the crashing issue, there’s still quite a few bugs left in the game. If you’re one of the many people who saw the Battlefield 5 invisibility bug and found it both annoying and funny, DICE has commented about that and mentions they’ve made “substantial progress” in fixing it.
The Dev team is dedicated to resolving the frustrating issues impacting many of our players. This week we released Hotfix 1.2 that helped address much of the Xbox One crashing issues. We’ve also gotten word that the team has made substantial progress in resolving the Invisibility bug that randomly affects players. More on that as we get closer to the next update.
Here’s what the Battlefield 5 invisibility bug loos like if you’re not familiar with it
In addition to that, DICE has also given a rough outline of what we should expect from the studio in the next few weeks when it comes to Battlefield 5.
TKC servers are well run and every attempt is made to ensure a fun gaming environment. No racist or rude behavior is tolerated on any of our servers. TKC tries to have round the clock administration for it's servers but obviously sometimes a server will have no admin playing so if you witness any abuse for any game please attempt to report the offending players nickname, and if possible GUID here: "Server Vistors Complaint". Just give as many details as you can remember such as what the player was doing/saying. In addition cheating is not tolerated on our servers. We are protected by any of a number of different cheat tools at any given time including; VAC, steambans.com, pbbans.com, ggc-stream.com, metabans, pbscreens.com and punkbuster, depending on the game. If caught cheating your information will be submitted to the appropriate cheat tracker and you will be added to their database which will ban your Steam ID, PB GUID or EA GUID depending on the game and website.
When available we also offer ways for players, in-game, to contact admins to report bad behavior. These come in the form of game server plugins. Players will, if the server has the option available, have the option to report a player using, @report [player] [reason] or @admin [reason] to call an admin to the server. If an admin doesn't respond in a timely manner, please use the @report option so we can follow up on it later or use "Server Vistors Complaint" as mentioned above. If an admin is not available, we also try to give the players the opportunity to use @votekick [player] or @voteban [player] [reason]. This allows the guests to our server the ability to kick or temporarily ban a player who is breaking rules.
Profanity - Many of the games we play have very bad language, some don't, that should make a difference in how we enforce our rules. For that reason we are going to implement a new rule, which will seem strange at first, but there is reason behind it. Bad language will only be tolerated on Teamspeak channels for games where there is bad language in the game. In other words, since there is bad language in Bad Company 2, bad language will be acceptable in the Bad Company 2 Teamspeak channel and on the Bad Company 2 servers. On our Half-Life 2 DM Teamspeak channel and game server, bad language will not be allowed. Future games will also be handled in this manner. The reason, we do not want to exclude members with different beliefs. If I buy a game and one of the selling points for me was the fact that it did not have bad language, that should be respected. I do not want a father or grandfather having to explain bad language to their children or grandchildren because they heard profanity on a TKC Teamspeak channel they thought was free of such things.
How to deal with with Mic/Text spammers - No one wants to listen to a lot of unrelated chatter either on the game server, or Teamspeak. No one wants to see a lot of text spamming either. It's distracting to some, and in the case of Bad Company 2, causes lag problems when the text log gets too long. If someone is talking or typing too much, respectfully ask them to stop. If they continue, you may have to mute or kick them, and if they continue after that, a ban might be in order. When on Teamspeak, a certain amount of "visiting" is fine, but the gamers who want to communicate tactical information to others playing shouldn't have to constantly interrupt talk about the latest CPU, or talk of what's going on at school. If someone is talking too much and you don't feel like you want to address it, PM a clan leader and we can handle the situation.
Team Switching - In some games this is a big no-no and if you are admin for one of those games, ask the player to go back, if they don't and you have the ability, move them back manually. If you continue to have problems, kick/ban them. In other games, like Bad Company 2, team switching usually isn't as big a deal. Sometimes friends or clan members might want to play together, in that case, try to facilitate them and swap some people around. This will show you to be respectful of community and they will probably be very appreciative of your efforts. If there is a mass exodus of people from a bad team to a good team, you can mention in-game that people need to stop. If someone is ignoring you and continues to unbalance the teams, just kick them off the server. For a game like Half-Life 2, teams change after each round, so trying to put clan members together is just a waste of time, that is why team switching is considered bad.
Hacking/Cheating - This is the most overused excuse for kicking someone off of a server. Players are unjustly booted off servers all the time simply because they were too good. That is not fair. Do not base a decision on cheating on a single round, if it isn't really ridiculous score-wise, sometimes people just have great rounds. But if they continue to have an unbelievable K/D ratio, then you might need to ban them. Sometimes it might be necessary to ban someone just because they are killing the server. For me, this is the thing I hate to do the most. That person might be doing nothing wrong, other than being really good at a game. Try to put yourself in their shoes and only ban guys who are really obvious. I don't want to see anyone being banned for an aimbot because they went 29-0. I and many others have had a better score than that, it DOES happen. You have to consider how the person is playing the game. Are they playing as recon? Are they in the heli with a really good pilot? Sometimes, if you are unsure, it might be best to ask the opinion of a clan leader. Remember, visitors to our servers have the ability and a forum to complain about unjust behavior from our server admins. If someone complains about you, you want to know that you did everything by the book.
Soldier Names/Nicknames - We will not allow names that are offensive to anyone. I think we can all use our best judgement here, but if you are unsure, ask another admin what they think of the name and come to a consensus before taking action. Players using racist names should be perm banned immediately. It does no good talking to someone like that because they're only goal is to cause trouble.
Banter and Trash Talking - Now its okay to joke around, but if several players are going at it constantly on the mic or in chat just nicely ask them to stop. If it continues warn them again that if they don't stop they will be kicked, if for no other reason that mic/text spamming. If they ignore this warning then go ahead and kick them. A certain amount of this is fine as long as it's good natured, however sometimes this can lead to hard feelings so you have to use your best judgement of when something is going too far or things are starting to get out of hand.
Racist/intolerant behavior - This is a subject that we will show no mercy on. If someone is being a racist, and that means they are hating on blacks, whites, browns, yellows, whatever the case may be, they get perm banned. No warnings, no kicks, just ban them. We don't need that kind of intolerant behavior on our servers. I don't care if the person is joking, I don't care what his real intent was, if he's spewing hate speech, he's gone. This also applies to someone who is spewing hate speech against a group of people, like Muslims, Christians, agnostics, atheists whoever. We are a gaming clan. This is our hobby and it's supposed to be fun. Everyone who comes to a TKC server should be respected and able to play the game hassle free. Not everyone believes the same, and if someone can't get over it and comes to our server with an agenda that includes racist or intolerant speech, I expect you guys to bring the hammer down swiftly.
Metabans - We will use Metabans only for cheaters and will verify each ban using Cheat-O-Meter. This will ensure that we are not forcing our Metabans followers into banning players we have banned for breaking rules other than cheating. If we deem you are cheating and Cheat-O-Meter doesn't really indicate cheating and we can not find information about you or your clan tag, meaning there is no website or previous information on you as a player or clan that we can cross reference, we will ban you on our servers, but not Metabans. Clans must have a website that we can find and access to be considered legit, otherwise we will view your tags as hogwash and your suspect behavior will be deemed as cheating. Again, we will not add a ban that is not supported by Cheat-O-Meter to Metabans.
We want everyone to have the best time possible so do your best to maintain a good gaming atmosphere, then everyone can have a good time.
To join TKC you only have to read our "Code of Conduct" and then apply for membership by filling out an online application. After submitting your application you will become a "member candidate". You will be allowed to wear our tags but only as (tkc), all letters in lowercase. As you progress, as seen by our members, you will be advanced to (Tkc), then (TKc) and then finally (TKC). You will receive emails at each step with detailed instructions on what you need to do. To obtain your full membership and the right to wear the (TKC) tags, you will have to pass a vote by the TKC members. Only those members who have gotten to know you will vote. An 80% yes vote will be required for full admission. Please keep in mind that full membership takes 8 weeks.
For you to be accepted you will need to display good manners, sportsmanship, and the ability to follow our rules. This applies to all game server activitiy and forum participation. If you do not feel you can meet our requirements we respectfully ask that you not apply as we have many who want to join and we can not waste time on gamers who are not serious about membership.
So now you're a member of TKC congrats! It is important for you to note that membership in TKC is not a lifetime privilege. Only the clan founders Big Flem and Squidward have lifetime membership and can not be removed. Clan leaders expect it's members to participate in clan activites when they can, and to be an ACTIVE member in the clan. We consider active members to be members who regularly post on the forums, participate in clan activities when possible, and communicates and develops friendships inside the clan. We do NOT consider a member to be active if they only ever play on our servers and nothing more. The leaders of this clan work hard to organize events and if you can't support these activities, can't check and post on the forums at least once or twice a week, then you are not TKC material and eventually you will be kicked from the clan. If you do not think you can meet these requirements as a member of TKC, then please don't attempt to gain entry into the clan as you will only waste your time, and ours.
Beyond administration positions such as "Clan Leader", "Division Leader", etc, the answer is no. However we do have achievable military style ribbons and medals that can be won for various acts. You may see each members ribbon and medal "Display Case" by going to the "Members" tab and under each members profile clicking the "Awards" icon. Below is each award and how you obtain that award. Note that medals also have an associative ribbon:
Ribbons(Hover over information icon for description)
In the past TKC had too many admins on our servers and things got a little out of hand. We are not looking for any new admins, however if we feel you will make a good addition to that team we will ask you. Being a server admin is not fun and games. It requires you to WORK, and follow server administrator rules which are well defined once you become an admin. Our admins are forced to stop playing whatever game they might be playing, and work to secure and maintain server tranquility reguarly. If you are an admin that does not mean you will get to run willy nilly and ban, kick, and torture at will. Admins who do not follow our rules will be stripped of admin duties and power. In addition there are more requirements of admins such as, reguarly checking our server admins forum. Once you become an admin you will be given access to this forum and you must check and read it quite often. It is a way for admins to help one another by posting their thoughts on what is going on, who to watch closely, etc. Do not ask us constantly to be an admin, that is the surest way I know to never become an admin. Our leaders will identify the best candidates for admin duties if we think it necessary.
No. In order to have an official TKC server it must meet certain standards. In addition, we might not want a server for a particular game, and if you aren't an admin, then you shouldn't have admin authority on any server. Official TKC servers have to be setup as close to identical as possible. This means that the clan leaders must have all access to any of it's servers including the ability to restart that server, gain access via FTP and game panel. It means that the clan leaders can setup the server with it's normal settings and add the usual addons. In short, if you want to have your own server then that is fine, but don't try to name it "Boom Boom Room" or tie it in any way to TKC.
Clan TKC maintains several servers that are open to it's clan members and the public. In addition TKC has other expenses that require money. To pay the bills TKC relies on it's members and visitors to donate. Without these donations, TKC will cease to exist. Please consider donating money when you can. We do our best to use the money wisely, to invest in TKC, to invest in PC gaming.
