SITREP Radio #69: The Carrots Back in this Meal for Two!
SITREPRadio present episode 69, the focus of which is update 1.7 which went live on Tuesday. Mike, Rob and Luke have been grinding away at the Global Event since its launch, and are really enjoying the fun element that is very much back in-game now. “Outbreak” as this Global Event is known forces players to play missions, incursions and HVTs in a specific way, with a damage modifier being applied to you if you get too close to NPCs. This doesn’t quite agree with Rob and Luke’s play-style, but they certainly appreciate the way it is changing their focus and forcing them to change their Division-habits.
There is also talk of Commendations which also went live with the new update. These are challenges that get players to perform specific tasks (for example, burst 400 car tyres) with small rewards and new vanity patches for those that you complete. Completionists like Luke are really enjoying these and have multiple carrots to chase after, so #TeamSITREP say “go and chase those carrots guys and girls”.
Update 1.7 is a success, simple as that.
