The devs were interviewed and they commented that most players primarily used one gun when playing Wildlands. They stated that they're trying to expose the player to all different types of guns in Breakpoint... dude, we used one type of gun because that's the gun we wanted to use... that's kinda how a more realistic situation might be. This game wants you to take drinks of water or rest at a campfire... but you gotta change your hat or shin guards in order to be more effective against a buff enemy? Come on!

This was literally my most anticipated game of 2019 and I canceled it

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I'm also passing for the time being (and this is coming from someone with over 50 hours in Wildlands)

There's a lot in the game(Beta) that has left some really scratching their heads...some say it's The Division 2.5...some say it's Wild Division....in any case quite a few don't like how the Beta is in regards to the Ghost Recon series....

I remember seeing that article about the guns and wanting to "expose more" to players.....but I've seen some who played the Beta and they stuck with a couple they liked and trashed the rest...it didn't change a thing. Just can upgrade them but that's another area to where can you keep some low level gun, upgrade it and still will do the same damage as the Devs claim?...if so then why have all these different levels of guns?

And as to the 'Water & Food Bit"...the two I was playing with said they found it it doesn't have a thing to do during normal gameplay...it's the Food & Drink Buff you can choose around the Campfire that last 20-30 minutes"....we kept looking for a gage or something that would tell us you need a Drink or Snack....no such thing.

Players don't like the Player Hub...you're either alone or with a few others with hardly anything and have to "Survive"...only to find yourself at some Party Hub with 12-16 other Ghosts...yea that's real for you...

I actually came close to going back into The Division 2...I did like it and the way it played...the Loot System works there because it's Urban Warfare...not Ghost Warfare

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Even the Division 2 grows tiring with the huge number of exactly alike enemies that spawn around the map and the feeling that you should constantly be upgrading your weapons and gear. Ghost Recon should not be like this.

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Well...some on the board have started mentioning going to other games and one old topic popped up....COD Modern Warfare especially with some news about the inclusion of "Spec Ops"....from some of the threads, the PvP weren't happy either which has them looking elsewhere too. I'm not really big on the PvP side though I'll dabble in it and have with past COD games...I much prefer the single and coop stuff...including Survival, Horde and Zombie stuff.......might give it a look..Interesting video on What's Wrong With Breakpoint....

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I enjoyed the beta and am keeping my preorder. I liked The Division 2 and Wildlands for different reasons, and even though I'll probably be deep into Borderlands 3 when this comes out, I know I'll still play it for some variety.

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I cancelled my pre-order. The Beta is very close to release date and there is no way in hell they can right this ship in time. Maybe in 12 months with many updates and patches they can get together a better game, but as it stands its horrible. The fun and action of Wildlands is totally missing.

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I could have probably overlooked a lot of TD2 features if they would have given us an "offline" mode where we directed 3 other ghosts.

No doubt, Ubisoft usually sticks with their games and continues to update them. Rainbow 6 Siege and For Honor had similar issues when they launched and they were able to turn those around with time. The unfortunate part is a year after this release we will be close (if not already) in new console territory.

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Still not going to pull the trigger... I have a feeling this will be $20 on Black Friday. I have enough to keep me busy until then.

Zero chance. Not on this Black Friday. Maybe $35, possibly $30 if it bombs. But $20 for a 6 week old game? No way, will not happen.

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

I will pick the game up when the price lowers and they get their shit together. But having the Gold Edition pre-ordered and for $109 plus tax. No goddam way. I am still in disbelief that they took something that should have been so clear cut and made it so broken. Those gun and vehicle sound effects and how weak they were immediately made me think of a few other sandbox sequels that promised a lot and were released totally lacking in every respect.

The one glimmer on the horizon is if they got their shit together and said, ok we have the PS% around the corner. Lets take that time to whip this into the shape it needs and give everyone what they wanted as one of the opening next gen titles. That would get me interested again, but the state its in right now. Not a chance in hell.

And i see the base game going for around $30 on Black Friday, but i won't even get it for that.

Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

That video is great... for many reasons that aren't just Breakpoint analysis.
