I wish they did these streams after office hours. I can get away with a lot of shit at work, but I think watching a live stream about a video game may push the limit haha.

Kinda sounds like people aren't thrilled with all the news on Curse Of Osiris so far. I'm starting to get the vibe that we're heading toward the game not being "fixed" until a year later like with TTK.

Personally I don't think how broken d1 vanilla was is comparable to 2. But after watching that stream I am not impressed and feel like I could've just read a recap on the sub and been less annoyed.

Hadn't played in a bit and IB got me back in, want the three pieces of armor I didn't get last time. Of course the engrams I got for IB only gave weapons. Got like 4 or 5 exotics from weekly tasks and went up a few power levels, still only at 269 though.

Did some random playing and finished the first branch of the world eater quest. I don't know if I'd ever do the raid, is the weapon wicked good where I shouldn't dismantle the slot it takes up?

meh, its a two round shotgun..it pushes people so its neat if you get someone on the edge of a map in pvp, the arms dealer strike to get it is fucking dumb hard

the raid is the easiest raid they've done, if you're an xboner, just holla....gt: mastersleeperrr

The arms dealer boss is actually quite easy. When you get to the top, shoot down all the gunners and wait till its arc burn before you dps the boss. Then unload your arc supers on him and youll take that fucker down in less than 10 seconds.

So you can do the strike to possibly pick it up or is the strike part of the quest line to unlock it? I need to try to get back in to the game. Haven't played since last iron banner and had only done a couple strikes.

LOL Bungie got fucking straight up exposed on XP throttling. This is remarkably embarrassing. Even as a D2 apologist, I cannot possibly stand behind this and I'd like to see more from them besides simply 'THE API DOESN'T ACCURATELY PORTRAY THE ISSUES YET'.

This expansion is really a make or break type of deal for a lot of people. They need to do a large revamp of the idea they want the game to be similar to what they did with D1 going into TTK.

Honestly its kind of sad that we are still facing the same 4 type of enemies after all this time. The variety of gameplay is almost identical to what it was at the beginning and this is a minor complaint compared to all the other issues.

Grinded out 34 IB packages and didn't get anything but the chest/boots. That shouldn't happen.

an unorganized/unranked list of my +/- to follow

+I like that weapon skill actually matters in PvP. No one can lone wolf a team of 4 the way that you could in D1.
+I like that I can grind up my weeklys in ~1.5 hours if I have to, but I also don't like that it gives me no incentive.

-XP throttling is really embarrassing and shitty and they should be dragged for this, especially since they only acknowledged it after the entire community figured it out and then, and only then, they said 'hey we're gonna stop this'.
-Still not a huge proponent of two primaries. I get that this makes it so PVP isn't a NLB snipe fest, but it's still kind of a bummer.
-Loot system doesn't really seem to make any sense at all. I've gotten 14 Crest of Alpha Lupis, and I've been counting. also 11 Rampant Lions.
-If you use the sword you are a piece of shit.
-Pulse grenades are the mark of 'I have no weapon skill' in PVP.

The worst part in it all is they didn't even try to pretend it was a bug. Sorry they got caught not sorry they did it.

That next stream needs to just ignore the dlc and talk about where they're taking the game. I'm already locked into the first two DLC but unless they switch up shit I am not planning on playing past that point.

I loved the reward system in the old Iron Banner. You could score weapons and armor after every match. Now you can grind through 10 matches and not get anything? I miss that anticipation to see what loot you might get, then checking to see what kind of weapon roll you got. But lets take that all away and give you a token instead, without the ability to even pick out what you want/need. Weak sauce.

no need to throw all that shade at my striker Titan haha

i played D1 this weekend and the gameplay is not as smooth as D2 (the supers are downright herky jerky), but it was more fun. i love how chaotic the public events are in D2 and i'd like to see more of that. bigger teams would help, and so would creating PUGs for patrolling, quests, adventures, and flashpoints.

I jumped on last week with my brothers to play and we did crucible and I didn't change my set up from doing pve and i wrecked shop with Sweet Business+Actium War Rig. It was nice to fuck up multi-tool team shooters but I think that was my only time ever using it in Crucible. It felt dirty.

I'm legitimately very fucking angry at bungie over this XP shit. I give a lot of time/money to this fucking game, and they only finally 'fixed' an issue that's been there since launch because of a fucking article (posted by FORBES?!? I digress) on a major publication.

they knew, and they didn't care until they got caught.

Are you surprised? Why wouldn't they pull some shit like that if it encourages people to pay actual money for bright engrams, which don't even have cool cosmetic items anyway?

The release from Bungie I read made it seem like they tried passing it off as their systems behaving incorrectly and that it wasn't actually intended. I could be remembering wrong -- did they actually admit to it and apologize? Either way, they have a lot to make up for/fix before I invest any more of myself into that game. I am having plenty of fun playing Fortnite, Overwatch and single-player games. I'm bummed because I've played so much Destiny over the past three years and I wanted this game to keep the feeling alive, but fuck Bungie.

Am I surprised? Yes and no. Yes, I am surprised it happened, honestly. They were at such a pivotal point after fucking D1 into the dirt. I thought maybe they really listened/cared. No, I am not surprised that it took a Forbes article accurately trashing them for their fuckery to get them to react. Same thing as that SLR book that they fixed immediately when they realized it would cost them money.

I am absolutely not surprised that they would throttle XP gains to push players toward spending actual money on bright engrams. At the very least, they could always fall back on the fact that they're still earnable in game and those earned in game have the same loot pool as those purchased with real money -- however long that may take. They've recovered from all other bad PR, so I'm sure they figured they could come back from any fallout that occurred should those shenanigans get discovered and also make a bunch of money in the process.
