The game is in better state now, but, still people are not coming back as they might have switched to other game(s) already after having serious bad time with hackers and lack of end game contents in recent past. I think we will see a boost in player base after the next incursion and if they put the game on 40-50% sale on coming Steam Sale in June.
Btw, this drop is huge.
114,225 peak base in 2nd day to 22,130 in 7 weeks. 81% dip in active player base. In a side by side comparison with DS3, after 3 weeks of release, DS3 base dropped by -39% while Division faced -53% drop.
it got very boring quickly
This is the main thing. I'm not saying this is the case for the everyone but the game was unbelievably repetitive before the hackers were even a big issue. Once I finished the PvE content (which again, was repetitive throughout) there was literally nothing to do.
Grinding for gear for what reason? I'm more of a competitive player when it comes to PvP and The Division does not offer any type of good PvP scene with the DZ and I'm sure there's a lot of people similar to me.
Sucks because I've been following TD since announcement and while I got some 30 hours out of it, it could have been so much better.
Same here, I started playing Diablo again to fuel my loot grind, a game with potential is just a side project, I'd rather wait until the finished product is released, granted I spent well over 350hrs on the game. I got my money's worth. But the current state is just horrendous
Hackers and exploits weren't the reasons why people left including myself.
The fact that the only end game content is a warehouse with 15 waves of enemies that one shot you is why. The incursion is a terribly designed gameplay aspect
I mean even some of the daily missions are more exciting than going through waves of enemies.
