  1. Well that was a shocking game. Went to Brom Vs Ipswich. How we got away with a point I'll never know. Looked utterly clueless (though 3 out of 4 first choice defenders out). Subs useless. Moore's interview after game had no bearing on reality. Still in play offs though. Then found out he's been sacked. The hell? I assume something gone on behind the scenes or someone already lined up. Sure he has looked a bit out of his depth tactically, but he has had very little money to spend and losing Harvey Barnes was fatal. Sacked though. Absolutely nuts.
  2. Forsaken has pretty much been excellent. A few odd missteps along the way (the latest puzzle, a few time gated quests that are on a three week rotation) and crucible for those that enjoy it has pretty much vanished off the face of the map. (Still no Trials, just a competitive playlist that from all accounts is...sparse). I don’t mind the attempt at the season pass, they are trying a drip feed of content to see how people get on with it. The idea is fine, but it seems to have swung too far towards streamers and people who can play all day. Some of the forge unlock steps are just a grindy mess. It is still great fun to play, the PC lot are mostly still playing it. The content pipeline thing must still be an issue, I mean why not just release year 1 armour again. Then again if you have to reboot a sequel about a year and a half before launch, after having done the same thing with the original you have to look at Bungie, not Activison. It sounds like it needs a new engine, start from scratch. Again. I honestly wonder if they are looking at free to play. Eververse frankly is fine, it is all cosmetics and you can earn stuff in game as well. Don’t know if that would enough to fund them. I cannot see them being able to self publish a physical console release. There is another issue. PC port is excellent, VV did the PC port and helped majorly with Warmind I think. High Moon did at least one of the better strikes (Pyramidium). Sure they have a load of people at Bungie. They must have a chunk working on that new IP the deal financed. Do they have enough people to do a brand new game? Could they make a PC version themselves? Would it be console only? All pie in the sky right now. For all the moaning about Activison forcing Bungie to do this and that...they signed the contract. They knew up front what they expected. It wasn’t like they were blindsided half way through that the deal had changed. They have shown consistently there is at least a core group at Bungie that think they know best what the players want. D2 seemed to roll back a lot of stuff that was good from end of life D1. Hell look at Deej, one of the worst examples of a community manager. Remember all the stuff at D2 launch, things like lying about the XP gain from certain events? I doubt much of that was on Acti. D2 is obviously on the clock now, wonder what they will do come September when they usually have a big content drop/DLC/new game. They still have the IP, which whatever you think is worth something, everyone has an opinion on it. I’d like them to have that clean break, come back with something where they can add content easier and have much stuff to chase (armour especially is very bare bones right now). Do I have much confidence they can do it? Eeehhhhhh.
  3. Just in time before the season ends, Positivity Club squeaks in a completion on Last Wish. Taken ages to finally get around to sorting a time and a night out, but we managed it. Did a five man on Kali to start us off, but if you want to see the run from the second encounter I’ve put the video below.
  4. Just spent an afternoon at the Hawthorns. Here is my review. Fuck me.
  5. After all the trouble Brim have had with taxis and players being dicks recently you would have thought Dawson refusing to go in a preseason tour maybe wasn't the best idea. Fair play to Jay for keeping his mouth shut, carrying on and if he goes then fine. You can fire Dawson out a cannon at this point. I think your figures are more likely. Again, they know how much we want and have done for months. You are in Europe, just stump up already. I thought Brom were bad at transfers.
  6. I'm absolutely amazed at a lot of you rating West Brom so highly (well, before today). We are still in the process of a massive clear out, Moore is untested and if both Rodriguez and Rondon go we are utterly screwed. I fully expect a few of the youngesters to be given a go, I'll be happy to not be relegated. We've signed a bunch of players I'm not familiar with aside the keeper from Villa via Man Utd, most of which are defenders. I think Dawson is likey gone, probably Rondon. It sort of sounds like Rogriguez might stay because we stuck by him doing the racism thing, but I believe his is a Burnley lad. As someone mentioned earlier Burnley do seem to like to take the piss with transers. Something like a £20-25m joint bid for Jay/Dawson, then a £15m for Dawson when we've said all along £20m.
  7. To be fair things like blinking, getting into a car, putting on clothes and breathing makes you want to play crucible. YOU DISGUSTING FILTHY ADDICT.
  8. I don't mind it being the case at all. I mind Bungie telling people you can get 400 light level weapons from the raid, then not telling them they cannot infused into anything until after the patch is out. Typical Bungie communication. They have had all that time, and release that info on the day of the Prestige lairs dropping. They absolutely didn't confirm or deny one way or another, and that is what annoys me (more than it should) that they have done the same shit again. They point blank refuse to learn at any point.
  9. Bungie guy. So confirmed that's the only way to get your armour to 400. I mean it looks good, but they release this info today? Fuck sake.
  10. Turns out, only the raid weapons can be used at 400. Non-raid weapons cannot be infused over 380. Wonder if they'll do the same with the Solstice armour. I would like to point out how very Bungie it is to fuck this up by not telling people. Just say in advance if that was the plan. Idiots.
  11. Got convinced by @Siri to play this again after trying it long long ago on PC and the original (and terrible at the time) PS4 version. Certainly looks a bit different. Despite still explaining nothing I have a general idea how to shootbangs again. Levelled my Excalibur to 30 (it must have had some decent levels on from my previous goes) so decided to try out the Ash Prime I got from watching too many streams on Twitch. Levelling pretty much went like this. These throwing stars seem shite, not matter what you tell me Man I have no shields anymore Woo, I can go invisible for a very short amount of time...great How good is a teleport going to be? Oh, it pretty much lets you execute an enemy, that is cool I have no idea what this final ability does Oh it is like that cowboy guy’s ultimate from Overwatch, I get it now Oh, it takes up very little energy And everything now dies What do you mean try teleporting during the attack? OH GOD I had the same thing happen with Excalibur when I realised the exalted sword not only fires off those projectiles, but that you can add mods to the exalted sword itself and it has all the mod space in the world. Pop sword, kill everything, resheathe sword. This game has style. So where do I sign up for any of that sweet PC clan stuff?
  12. It was fine to begin with. The vidoc was good "HERE'S SOME NEW SHIT". They then announce a season pass for a DLC they just announced. How tone deaf do you have to be? They then spend most of the stream talking about stuff that was in D1 at some point (truimphs looks like the TTK quest page, most of the roadmap turning the game into D1 but keeping the shader system). Plus Deej was evasive to the point you can pretty much guarantee there is no cutscenes and maybe no missions in the season pass DLC. Didn't talk much about the weapon slot changes when people at E3 will be all over that shit. Plus a High Moon dev was on the vidoc so they aren't even doing this all themselves. I mean I'm still in as I enjoy playing the game, but fucking hell Bungie.
  13. No idea. Doesn’t seem to be any posts that I’ve seen, and nothing in the Discord.
  14. Need to be more like Hitman. Place a hand held mirror on a balcony that mysteriously happens to crumble. Preferably next to a note that says “Are you shitting yourself?” as you walk out disguised as Sam Field.
  15. I would have preferred Pulis to be kept on till the end of the season. I think we would have stayed up, even if his football was garbage and his relationship with fans was toxic. Then fresh start in the summer with our new director of football bringing in his own people. I'll tell you one thing, I don't think Pulis would have taken the squad on that Spain trip. If he did, I can absolutely guarantee the taxi four would never have played for the club again. They'd be straight with the youngsters, even if one was Evans. Big Dave is being kept on one way or another. He might go back to being a coach, but there is no way he's leaving. He's done great, but again I think fresh start is needed and I'm not sure how he would hold up over a Championship season. Would not surprise me if they already have someone in place ready to go after the season ends. Maybe ask Mendes if he knows any other Portuguese managers, last one did a passable job I suppose I remember someone at the pub coming in after watching Wolves pre-season. Said it was the best football he had seen in decades. We all brushed it off, it was only a pre-season friendly. How wrong we were. I am happy you've got the best of the Midlands Chinese owners group. Fosun had a plan, they had the cash as well but pretty much everything they have touched has turned to old gold. Plus when I've seen them they haven't played Pulis ball, they done it properly. Nuno in his interviews with the local paper has seemed to be nothing but a class act as well. Now excuse me, I'm contractually obliged to rinse my mouth out with bleach after those compliments.
  16. So who’s the exception? OH GOD OZ YOU ARE TEARING US APART! In all seriousness Positivity Club is one of the few corners of the internet that still enjoys the game despite the flaws. It still plays like Destiny, the gunplay is still ace. The levelling process up to 20 and the campaign is much improved compared to vanilla D1. The PC is excellent with great performance. We’ve done mostly regular raids for a very long time, last one was I believe a couple of weeks ago. Game obviously has flaws. Compared to D1 the nerfing of recharge rates and the stupid double primary system with built in juggler was just idiotic. There isn’t a lot to chase when you’ve hit max light and most of the exotics aren’t worth using over a decent legendary - though weapon wise this looks like being fixed with the new DLC update (so it should apply to vanilla D2). The jump to 60 fps is truely amazing. I actually have it on PS4, tried going back and the drop is horrible to play with. We are always happy to have new people, Oz needs people to sacrifice at his PvP alter and we give no fucks if you haven’t done a raid or nightfall before as we are all equally terrible. There will almost certainly be more people playing with the new DLC dropping, us lot are hungry for new content,
  17. As a West Brom fan, the fact we are anywhere near a sniff at staying up is mind boggling. The fact the run in has included Liverpool, Utd and Spurs makes it even crazier. I think a lot of fans had come to terms with being relegated, getting things setup for not immediately going down a second time. Instead Big Dave has come in, played players in the correct positions and the impossible is looking....significantly less impossible anyway. Interestingly this has come with Barry and Evans being injured/not playing. I still think we are down but having Stoke relegated before us is nuts. Plus going down but not being short on confidence at least makes thing slightly more rosey for next season (though half the squad will probably go).
  18. His leg bent the wrong way. It’s horrific. I could also have done without that slowmo from that tweet above. Jesus.
  19. Here's a clip from elsewhere. Hope guy is alright. https://www.resetera.com/posts/6488010/
  20. I am sadly at work. However I will be passing on good vibes through the medium of being salty at work. Plus I will be handing out these completely clean and not infected at all dollar bills should you complete the raid.
  21. I suppose. See if we can teach Oz even more new words.
  22. Finally, someone has leaked MotS. Essentially the Destiny soundtrack for the entire lifetime of the game and never release by Bungie as they fell out with one of the three composers. Some dude called Marty, apparently he did some Halo shit. You know, as not releasing something composed in part by Paul McCartney is a wonderful idea. i like how reddit is taking it to be a gigantic fuck you to Bungie for all the terrible stuff recently. Marty himself has confirmed it as legit via Schreier on Kotaku. I’ve listened to a bit. It’s as glorious as you would expect.
  23. Hi, I'm designated dog gauntlet runner from Team Positivity Club (ie the PC lot). I like long walks on Io, grenade launchers and Cialis. I'll start by saying the PC lot are still having a tremendous amount of fun with it. Been having a few cracks at the raid lair, got the raid down pretty much and we even go into crucible to get carried. It's a fun game, a fun game I am still having fun with. However, everyone is right with all the bullshit they are calling out. When 50% or so of the new items in the DLC are locked behind the Eververse, that's bullshit. It also gives you less things to try and aim at. Sure the verses are nice (even if the guns seem to vary between ok and awful) and the masterworks are a nice addition, something to actually grind for. But the entire game has been adjusted to make Eververse more palatable. The entire token system for example. Yes we can buy pieces now, only after Bungie was put under duress. Now doesn't this random rolling for items remind you of something? Say loot boxes? Oh wait. Now as for the Dawning, here is the sum total of what you can earn free. 1 freebie 1 from Heroic Strikes 1 from Mayhem That's it. Account wide. Might be able to do some of them again if they reset but otherwise that's all you get. Three loot boxesengrams. Better hope you get real lucky if you aren't spending that dollar. Once again it's bullshit. As has been pointed out elsewhere, other games during seasonal events make all the boxes/engrams have seasonal rewards. Hell I play a F2P MOBA called Paragon. It is currently having a winter event with skins and such. If you play a certain number of games each week, you a guaranteed all the skins. No RNG bollocks, you just get them all. In a free to play game. Destiny as of right now costs say £60 for the full experience with the DLC, and you get guaranteed nothing. It's bullshit. It's bollocks. It's total fucking bollocks coming of TK/RoI which were somehow more full featured than the full price sequel. It is still a lot of fun, despite all that. I'm still playing it, I'll still be playing the next DLC and I'll probably be getting the Taken King equivalent when it comes out as the game is fun at the core. Don't tell me it's a chocolate cake with lush buttercream icing when the cake is replaced by meatloaf or something. You can enjoy the icing, but for god's sake let people call the cake shit.
  24. As far as Three of Coins goes, I did near four hours yesterday, got one exotic. Siri who also ran with me and didn't have it also got one exotic. SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN FOLKS! (no-one has any clue if it is working as intended or not, so I'm sure with Bungie's new found commitment to communication we will get told about it. Any minute now. Any minute...)
  25. I have updated the schedule thing. I mean unless you fancy starting near midnight Thursdays and Fridays. I might be able to join then. Does that help?
