    Jumped in and flew around again. Played for about 90 minutes. Couldn’t finish the quests cause I didn’t know what a crystallised enemy was and as usual it took for ever to find the events.

    Here is a link with the location of all the world event spawns.

    Running a circuit of the nodes usually nets events quickly and without issue.

    My brief time in, I didn't have any bugs. Performance seemed to take a minor hit with this pre-catacylsm stuff, but it could be that I should download the latest Nvidia drivers.

    I've had a slew of performance problems on the reg but the way the game lets the player quickly restart the mission at a check point means I haven't lost a whole lot of progress.

    If only other online games were as generous with reconnecting to instances

    Performance has been fine for me but I apparently have the perfect rig that's immune to poor optimization in games.

    Seems like a crystallised enemy is one of the new dominion soldier only. And for it to count towards the achievement you have to kill them with a bullet. Since 90% of my damage is combo and dots it probably explains why I’ve finished every other achievement but only 17/60 on the enemies.

    I tried to come back to Anthem this past week for new events, but I now randomly freeze in the first couple of minutes of a freeplay and get booted back to home on the xbox.

    Aye I heard on the PS4 it's particularly bad in Freeplay. Haven't tried myself on PC.

    So yesterday I finally got my javelin up to Masterwork. With everything 61 with one 75 and my lone 38 thing. And I'm amazing useless in GM 3, lol. So should I be playing GM 2 for more 75 drops, or be farming GM 1?

    I popped back in on PC and played a few strongholds and some free play. No issue getting it, but i don't think it was able to match me with anyone.

    I guess it's a ghost town now which sucks.

  • PapaganderPapagander Registered User regular
    I need to look it up online and maybe even delete and reload the game. It just really hurts because the timing is long enough to really get excited about flying around as I do the opening deep dive towards scenic waterfalls and then -blump- I freeze and get booted to home.

    Maybe I'll try something other than freeplay and see if that works too, but freeplay was the best for a short snippet of this game type. A daily, breath-taking 15 minute flight around the environs in this game always made me slightly happier than when I'd begun.

    I don't actually play Freeplay a whole lot, I generally try and group up on missions.
    The matchmaker doesn't tend to start me up with few mates but there's usually a bunch that fill out the instance mid-mission. If more players helped with that sort of thing it probably would be less of a ghost town

    When I play, it's mostly in freeplay. Very rare do I not have 3 people also in the instance. IMO, the missions don't really lend themselves to repeating too well, including strongholds. This isn't just an Anthem thing to me either, running Strikes/Missions in Destiny got boring vs patrols/pvp. Futzing about in the city in both Division games was more entertaining than the missions, which I only really touch now for projects... and so on.

    I would argue that in most games with an open world, that's where the population is going to skew toward as the missions get older.

    I can already hear complaints about melee not hitting as hard until you equip the new melee weapons, but hopefully the drops on those are fast. I know I'll be out there in my murderceptor tonight.

    Also guilds now?

    Re-downloaded the game and tried a mission. First bug was noticeable right off and super annoying. The screen ratio/size whatever is off on the TV, so most of the really useful HUD info is hidden behind my TV's bezel. Could not find any way to address this in game. I suppose I could have adjusted it in my TV settings, but then every single other application on my XBOX would have been hit with a 4-sided letterbox.
    Load times are still really long, I honestly thought it had frozen and was about to restart the console when mission finally loaded. Lack of a slow moving loading bar doesn't make the load times any shorter, it just denies you information on whether or not you're making progress.
    Played as a Ranger on GM1 with a full Masterwork loadout (barring melee and support items, which were Epic). Struggled hard to kill things before they got annihilated by the two Warlocks and Colossus in my squad. Unless there's new gear I have to grind for, the Ranger equipment still kind of sucks and you don't have any kind of weapon enhancing skills to make up for it. Tried a bunch of melee, range on the shock stick feels shorter, and it didn't do very much damage. Definitely not worth closing in on a group of enemies to use it.
    Coloration on the new mission (Tip of the Spear) was pretty similar, made it hard to differentiate the terrain. Maybe a poor design choice, maybe part of whatever bug is preventing me from seeing full screen.

    Not trying to be a downer but I think I'm going to re-delete the game. Just not really any improvements that I could see, and pretty much all of the same issues as before. Ft. Tarsis still feels tacked on and stupid and pointless. Flying still feels good, but I thought they'd upped the flight overheating timers? Had to land every 10 seconds or so, which sucks.

    Reinstalled it on my PS4, didn’t see any immediate problems.

    Used my Colossus to go through 4 story missions, and spending the rewards at the new vendor for the MW melee things. Got 2 different Storm and 2 the same Interceptor melee weapons.

    Tried the new gamemode, but we were only 3, and after the 1st crystal we didn’t know where to go, but after 5 minutes I found a new entrance leading to the 2nd crystal. The gamemode is timed and you need to destroy 7 crystals and then the Valkyrie. It has heaps of challenges, which rewards you with decals and even wraps.
    There are speed and no-kill challenges in there. GM1 was hard, might try it on a lower difficulty until I know what and where to do everything.

    The projector screens that steal the object (like a relic piece) are really annoying.

    Nopers, no new achievements. As such, haven’t played yet myself.

    Also doubt the patch and all will be a game changer to the folks who’ve spent an inordinate amount of time reinforcing their dislike of the game too, lol.

    Ok, so I owe Anthem a possible apology. Looks like my repeater has died, and my normal wifi is trash. So me shooting to Home after a minute or so of freeplay last week might have been early warning signs, idk.

    I couldn't do Xbox online at all over the weekend as I was too busy to diagnose the problem fully till Sunday (that, and I kept seeing some outages with Xbox game services here and there Friday/Saturday and assumed it was linked).

    I'm downloading the update but its a multi-day process without a solid repeater for my wifi. Gonna see tonight/tomorrow if the game can run at all till I get a replacement. Cataclysm sounds fun and I want in!!!

    Yeah having played like RDR 2 and Div 2 recently it was fun to pop into bright and shiny with like more actiony combat.

    I did one story mission and one of the freeplay events. I did notice there are a shit ton more daily quests than there were before which is a welcome change. No new weapons yet beyond a pair of swords for my murderceptor but again I've played like 40 minutes due to time constraints.
