  1. Trusting West Brom to not concede for more than 20 minutes?  What were you guys thinking?  I'm just glad to take a point.  Minus 6 goal difference already and we conceded three in a draw >_<

  2. What an evening.  Never have I been so pissed off at a side that finished in the top 2.  Dodgy defence, too many touches, general moaning about lack of urgency.  Feels like we scraped victory from the jaws of...victory?  Weird feeling.  Maybe I’ll replace it with another.




    (man we are going to get roasted in the Prem)

  3. Well done to Leeds.  At this point, we’ll done to Brentford as well.  That eight game win streak is something else.   WBA haven’t been great since after Christmas (something like 8 wins in 24) which simply isn’t promotion form.  Watching them yesterday it feels like a bottle job.


    Weird subs and a seeming lack of urgency especially near the end of the game.  Not exactly what you want when you needs wins to get automatic promotion.  Huddersfield played well and were difficult to break down.  We only had a small number of chances, despite playing some decent football occasionally.


    Even worse, Pereira was supposed to be a full West Brom player right now.  Loan terms were played 20 games and promotion, or played more than 30 games for more than a half.  He’s hit that, but no word on actually securing the transfer.  We are somehow going to bottle that as well and he’s going to end up at Wolves or somewhere just to make us look extra foolish.

    Adding a shoutout to two of our old F1/Forza racing buddies @Moodmon and @sixbuttons - hoping they are still well and turning laps (and stomachs).


    Still here, mostly lurking the F1 thread and COVID folder.  Not done any racing in ages, unless grinding out stuff in Destiny is a race.  Thanks for checking up on me, but don't worry - I'm still here throwing medicines at people.

    The default wheel settings in Codemasters games are fairly widely reviled. Have a search for a setup guide for your specific model of wheel (or any similar Thrustmaster wheel should do), it'll make a world of difference. On the default settings you'll find the car just will not turn.


    At least some things never change.

    Whilst I agree with a lot of this, just thought it was worth mentioning that one of the community managers has confirmed that armour will drop some weeks at 3, 5, or 7 wins - it’s on rotation so not limited to flawless runs. 


    That does make it better.  Does highlight the woeful communication from Bungie again.  I can understand people moaning, without the clarification it would have looked like all the armour is flawless.  I still don't think it is a good look that depending on how the rotation falls you might have to play trials every single week to get a chance of the full armour set if you cannot go flawless.


    I don't mind the idea of there being interesting builds like those above, or the charged with light builds from last season.  Problem here is you have to get the bunkers up to level 3 just to get a weapon, which is an awful lot of grinding.  Well, not like there is anything else PvE wise to do this season.

  6. I had zero interest in trials before, and zero interest now.  That’s because I don’t fancy playing a stressful game mode.  However it sucks for those who do want to play it as Bungie keep making idiotic decisions.


    You can only get armour by going flawless.  This week you can only get gloves.  It can roll with shitty stats like most armour in the game.  You can also only get three weapons this week (I think they drop at three, five and seven wins).  If you want the auto, shotgun or sniper then come back next week.  Any tokens you get during a run only gives you a chance of what you earnt before, if you are still waiting say for the rocket launcher it will never drop from tokens till it drops from the card.  There are no adept weapons.


    It is a series of terrible design decisions.  Reused loot, having to come back and go flawless every week for the full armour set, the lighthouse maybe offering an ascendant shard if you are lucky.  I cannot help but put on my spinfoil hat again and think they have about three people working on the game now.  I mean out of the new stuff you can get right now, the hunter exotic is already disabled because there is a bug that causes infinite blocking.


    There does not feel enough stuff here, the new PvE activity is more bounty grinding, only this time with a power level wall behind it for reasons best known to Bungie (new lost sectors and event are near the 1000 power level mark).  It is more running the same activities, for pretty much he same loot.

  7. Apparently it is something like that or reload and kill perks are all on the same tree now.  Spinfoil hat theory is this is how they get us to use different weapons by remove the standard reload/kill perks on primaries - then slowly retiring the good stuff.


    So either we will all be using inferior weapons or they bring back the perk combinations for us to grind for again.  Not like Bungie to pull a trick like that.  I mean they certainly never did that with elemental primaries in D1.


    I'm away right now, but I have little interest in what they have shown.  So I come back, grind power for the sake of it, get weapons that objectively aren't as good as what I have for PvE?


    Trials I have no interest in, I can see them having another issue with Titans.  The new exotic...


    Let's you shoot through barricade only it has less health.  Going to be a nightmare if they have snipers.  In fact, you would think they made the new barricade adjustment solely for trials/this new exotic.

  8. My main issue with all this is that is screams "We have nothing new to add." Moving away from season activities to adding stuff to existing playlists?  Some of the faction stuff to be added as drops?  Even the trials armour shown is old.  Having a shelf life on weapons to encourage engagement or whatever the term is doesn't seem to fit Destiny.  I don't think they release enough new weapons for a start.  Starting from scratch works in Path of Exile as they usually introduce some crazy shit each season, having a slightly refreshed strike isn't going to cut it.


    Plus Mr Smith might as well have stuck a D3 logo at the end with the constant Destiny 2 cannot last forever spiel.  It certainly feels they have barely anyone working on D2 at this point or the game is so unwieldy to manage they can barely produce content for it.  I've only just thought the new maps for trials are also...old maps.  Play how you want seems to have gone out the window, now it is play what you want within a 9-15 month window assuming we don't nerf it due to usage stats.


    But hey, at least the shooting still feels good, right?

  9. Finally, after 11 runs and two failures on bosses...




    Watcher is done.  Got a little lucky with the strike/defend upgrade event and using a flex potion on Donu with wraith, a lot of smites and a decently upgraded ritul dagger.  I'm more glad it is out the way than anything. Found it hard to get into a build (like strength on Ironclad or posion on Silent).  Never managed a pressure point run, or a real mantra run.  Did have a decent attempt at a stance change deck with flurry of blows.  Sadly Time Eater said hi and I couldn't burn them down fast enough.


    At least Watcher eats the first floor, especially the slime boss who gets murdered under wrath.  Time to play some other classes again.

  10. Talking of managers, all signs point to West Brom hiring Slaven Bilic as their new boss.  Only three months after we sacked Darren Moore.  Why it has taken so long I don't know.  Bilic seems fine, I don't have a problem with it.  Would have thought Houghton would have been a better bet, not like we are going to have much money to spend to replace a half depleted squad as all the loans return.


    Kept reading in the local paper about the Sheff Utd boss being a contender.  Something about a court case involving the two owners.  Anyone have a better perspective about what on earth is going on at a club that just got promoted?

  11. If/when this ever comes to Apple/Android I'm ruined.  Seems practically made for tablet play as it is.


    I always struggle more with the Silent.  I always seem to take a while to get up and rolling.  Meanwhile I can get a lucky card with Ironclad and Defect and be away.  The Dark orbs can seem a bit meh, but a good dualcast and everything dies.  Alternatively getting all the block like the picture a few posts up is tremendously satisfying.  If you want a series to watch I'd suggest Rhapsody on Youtube.  He started his series again from episode 1 on full game release, and for the first few eps goes into a little bit more depth on the relics and his decisions.
