I think I hate The Division

The other day I hit level 30 in The Division and I think I hate the game now. According to the start screen I've played over 60 hours of this game and for the most part I have savored every moment. I was rolling with a crew that consisted of wanna be podcaster and now grown ass man killjoy, King_Bowser of the Zero Tolerance Podcast and occasionally geran42o. We were a crew to be reckoned with. Slamming out missions was fun and escaping the DZ with mad loot was better. But it's all gone, all because I needed to hit level 30 and experience the delicious yellow guns.


30 is the max level in the PvE portion of The Division and it's the only way to get the best gear. Or rather the opportunity to get the best gear. That's where The Division has fallen apart for me. Now that I've done all of the story missions and leveled up my base to 100%, my desire has receded into the depths of gaming purgatory. I still have plenty to do on my map, but most of the missions are side quests for XP I don't need and blueprints for weapons that I will never use. The other missions are for tech to upgrade the wings of my base, but I'm at 100% so what's the point?
The Division recognized this was going to cause issue, so to fix this they added Daily's, which are missions you've already completed, but harder. WTF is this trash? You want to me do more of what I've done but harder? How about more of what I found fun about the game?

Grinding, which is the most unforgivable part of any game, is the only thing you have to look forward to once you hit max rank. Everything that you loved about the game is gone and now it's time to head to the Dark Zone to farm Phoenix Credits or attempt to steal some pathetic fool's loot. The problem is that a lot of people have been 30 for weeks so you end up being that fool because you're up against people with yellow artillery and gear, while you slum it with purples.
I remember when The Division was good. Before Daily's, insane/totally cheating difficulty and farming was a thing. RIP The Division. I'll catch you when the 1st DLC falls, or perhaps I won't.
