      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. I feel your frustrations. One would think with the amount of money MS has pumped into developing the canon of the series, they'd at least pay the writers to agree/develop a coherent plot. Forcing someone to spend hours reading EU material and wiki pages to find enjoyment with a story is horrible writing. Not to mention the games completely disregard established canon whenever it's convenient. Looking at you Halo Reach.
  2. I might have made a huge mistake. I bought five IMAX tickets on the SECOND row. They were the only ones available...
  3. Alright. I hardly post here anymore, but I haven't seen such polarizing emotions for a beta in years. So I'm gonna throw in my feels: Aside from the Star Wars license, this is the most original AAA shooter we've had in a while. Comparing this game to Battlefield, COD, Destiny, Halo, or whatever the fuck the kids are playing these days is incredibly crude. The game encourages you to shoot from the hip. There are no recoil, accuracy, or damage penalties for laying waste at players from 3rd person. I've yet to find an advantage to using ADS aside from the occasional 1 mile pot shots. I believe this style of gameplay is throwing the past 10 years of hardcore FPS players in for a shock as their tactics and gunplay nuance are completely worthless during firefights. This style of gameplay IMO is what really hearkens back a lot of the nostalgia from the simpler days of FPS. Where shooters weren't about fine tuning a myriad of gun attachments. Or developing freakishly fast combinations of twitch skills that is REQUIRED to be competent in a modern FPS. In this game you choose a few tools to wreak havoc, and proceed to kill the living fuck out of everything. If you're having issues with the killing part, you're thinking about shooting too hard. In terms of gunplay this game is EXACTLY like the old BF games. And if you don't believe me, load up BFII and play a few rounds. Aside from class based warfare and vehicle changes, it's mindless running and gunning while commanding objective points. Drawing comparisons to the original BF is pretty crude as well too. For one, the IQ in a modern game always trumps content. Making maps at the insane level of detail DICE has committed takes A LOT of time. Having this game launch with 20 maps simply isn't economical/feasible. DICE will most likely roll out expansions over the next year, and I would be surprised if they even get to 20 maps. The vehicle system is a pretty big gamble, but I find the change to be refreshing. Anyone that's ever played a Battlefield game knows about the camping lines for vehicle spawns, and it can really inhibit playing the objective. Putting random tokens in key battle locations keeps infantry combat more focused and retains the rushing excitement of entering a vehicle. I do think that players who have the highest objective points should be rewarded with game changer perks to clutch a game. I.E Getting a snowspeeder for a chance to win the game. Battlefield is pulling ideas from the past 20 years of shooters, and so far it's great. Does it have the depth to maintain a sizeable player count for another year? I have no idea. It completely depends on how DICE supports it. Which brings me back to say that this is a beta. Just about all of the major gameplay complaints about spawning and balance can easily be fixed over this month. It's completely unfair to say this game lacks depth because nobody actually knows the full skill trees, weapon options, scenarios, and content update plans. This game is too polished to say it's nothing but an EA cash grab. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 was a cash grab. DICE has shown in the past a lot of commitment to maintaining their products. The emotions of Star Wars were created by DICE as a labor of love. I'm looking forward to the full release.
  4. I really want to like the nemesis system, but it feels incredibly under developed. About halfway through the game my character was powerful enough that I didn’t even bother looking up warchief/captain weaknesses. With a quick run, I could brand/kill the majority of the available captains, and dispose the warchiefs with relative ease. As my character progressed, the nemesis system was more trouble than just killing whatever the fuck that got in my way. Putting that aside. The combat is really satisfying, and I really enjoyed the graphics/animation. They really have the pieces to make a phenomenal sequel. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
  5. That sucks man. I've only done halo 2 on legendary once, and I've vowed to never do it again.
  6. 3gb? My hdd is getting destroyed, and I've only had my Xbox for a week. Any impressions? I'm looking forward to trying the update out.
  7. They said that the only way I could get the deal would be to completely return my xbox, and then have them resale it back to me. I don't understand how these stores stay in business,
  8. If I bought my xbox from bestbuy last week am I eligible for this?
  9. I'm down for D1P customs.
  10. You have to own the game and be invited to get early beta access. If anyone got access, and doesn't have the mcc collection I will gladly take the key off your hands!
  11. I really wish Microsoft would give out some form of compensation. It's completely unacceptable that the game is still broken over a month since release.
  12. HOW DO I BECOME A PREVIEW PROGRAM MEMBER???
  13. Matchmaking is still horrendously slow, and I get a lot of dropped players. Also, Halo CE playlist are unplayable for me. Whenever I load a CE game, the axis on my analog sticks go full retard.
  14. sgonzo, I'll send you the codes when I get home from work today!
  15. Thanks! I didnt get the Kinect, I'm holding off till I try my friends. He wants to sell me his for a good deal. My roommate also bought me gta v for an early Christmas present. I've got a lot of games to keep me going for a while. I still want to pick up sunset overdrive. Also, does anyone want my assassins creed codes? I'm not a fan of the series. Hit me up, and ill send you the key.
