Tom Clancy’s The Division is not at its best these days. The game has been attacked by bugs which are allowing players to acquire items that they get at a later stage much earlier than the developers intend to. One of the bugs also allows gamers to make their weapons more powerful by acquiring the Competent Talent. All these bugs do not seem to have gone down well with Fox News’ Red Eye show host, Andy Levy.
Whenever things go wrong, news channel show hosts choose to remain neutral. They are, most of the times, are seen just delivering the news. But the host of Fox News’ show Red Eye, Andy Levy decided to slam The Division for the nerfs. Here is what he said on air:
“Be able to gear up your character in The Division despite the way Massive nerfed the crafting system and allows packs of super-geared Rogues to gank you in the Dark Zone–thanks a lot. Jerks.”
Are you not happy with just the quote part? Do you want to hear how he actually, fearlessly, literally said that to Ubisoft’s Massive? Watch the video right here:
Game criticism is not something we expect from news channels. For that, we go to sites dedicated to gaming. Do you think The Division and its bugs is something a channel like Fox News should even be bringing up?
In any case, the game is experiencing some serious problems and it is something that players who have purchased the game would not at all be happy about. The latest reports suggest that The Division would need a complete rewrite for a proper functioning. Ars Technica, in its recent report about the game and its bugs, wrote that the game “has been scrambling to stem the widespread use of hacks, cheats, and exploits that have ruined much of the PvP experience in the online-focused multiplayer shooter. But an analysis of client-side cheating programs by an experienced network gaming developer suggests the game may need a “complete rewrite” to fix major holes in its online security.”
