  1. Not played too much of this, enough to have a few races. It is pretty damn good. Decided to go for Not Force India, and true to form the car is garbage at low speed. Treating this season as a tester, will probably restart at lower levels when I know what I am actually doing. It has that old Championship Manager balance of being just complicated enough but not too simple. The development side feels very XCOM in that there is always too much to do, so you have to pick carefully. I have been going for improving whichever post is crucial for next race, but I think maybe concentrat
  2. Got to rank five. Still yet to get a ghost, but about five Titan face towels. Not a fan of the auto rifle, but other seems decent. Shotgun is much better than my zero range Stolen Will, so that's a bonus. Might keep playing as by far quickest way to get higher light level stuff - if you get lucky. Of course, best way to play is to keep winning. So I guess the following would be some tips from someone who never plays PvP. Use a shotgun. When firing a shotgun, sliding is mandatory. If you see an enemy crest on the ground and a teammate approaching, alway
  3. Talking of Titans, don't sleep on Fabian Strategy. I liked it before RoI, even though the "Increased fire rate when enemies close" perk never worked. Not only does it work, but kills grant extra ammo straight to your mag. It is decent in crucible, as it seems fairly stable. It murders stuff when the perk kicks in, but that is shotgun range so you can still get outgunned. It is incredible in the raid. You just keep firing and firing and firing and it keeps adding bullets to the mag. I think I have gone about five enemies or so before I needed a reload. Loving the l
  4. Oh fuck you Eris, just fuck you. Second time I have grinded her rep up in the space of two days, second Titan flannel. Welp, time to burn some skeleton keys. Fucking useless blind cockwank. You see this wormspore, you can just [censored]
  5. I purposefully did the 320 strike rather than getting it in the heroic playlist. Is there a taken version of the boss, would that affect if it spawns?
  6. Where the Priest actually comes out, by the big pod.
  7. Believe best bet if ranking up Eris for one (not guaranteed). Apparently drop from from skeleton key chests as blues, at your current light level. I am one and none on that front though. The Stolen Will shotgunI got from Archon Priest is great for PvE mind.
  8. It's a bit late, but the Bungie quote. Did I read that right, or did they just say they will just be putting the levels you can find stuff/from engrams up across the board when the hard raid is released? So to get to a suitable light level for hard mode, you just wait and then grind again? I think I need to go to bed.
  9. Holy crap, sub-360 I solo'd Winter's Run up to the boss, before getting some help in. There is no solar burn, so I don't know how bad Saber would be. Talking about skeleton key drops, I have had a couple drop already tonight. Blind luck, or have they adjusted something. That is from a total of about 4 strikes though, so don't read too much into it.
  10. Don't sniff the Eris stuff as hard work. I decided to do the same thing. Do the Dreadnaught bounties, then Court of Oryx. Sure, it takes a lot of runes to rank up. However, as lots of people are having the same issue I have always found lots doing some grinding. Use three of coins, cross fingers for random engrams. A T3 ruin only gets you 100 rep, but with a few people the bosses just melt. Plus the runes drop quite frequently as you go. It is also fun as hell, having a random group of 6 constantly popping in runes. The Eris rank up got me a 357 or something arti
  11. Dunno if anyone is left who hasn't done it, but I need to at least attempt the nightfall before the reset tomorrow. Just send me a message if I am doing something else. Probably fail still being sub 360 but what the hell. Also seconded on cruicble being pretty good for drops. Got two legendaries above my current light level. I also seem to have picked up an Aegis of the Reef pulse rifle, which I can only assume came from Prison of Elders level 41. Don't even remember it dropping, was just in postmaster.
  12. Finally got to 350, decided to try the heroic strikes. These are a ton of fun. It is like a nightfall every run. You have to play carefully, but you can hit like a truck with supercell. I just don't know if it worth it with regards to levelling. Sure the boss can drop some blues to get me on the road to 365, but so can the single 320 strikes. I have not seen any sign of any skeleton keys either. Didn't help I have a few 352-355 items, decrypted three legendaries and they all dropped at 351. The grind is real. I am not missing a better way to level am I?
  13. Been watching a stream of the raid being run, as I won't attempt it for weeks. No spoilers, but it looks a lot of fun to run. People I were watching were at 360-380 before the raid, so bear that in mine. Doesn't seem short either. So looks like good times.
  14. I can understand why they made the decision regarding engrams but I don't like it. Simply a way of padding out the relatively small amount of content they have. I mean the new stuff isn't bad. However if you have the raid as a main selling point, and you change the system to effectively restrict access (based on previous raids you will need to be at the min light level to have a chance) it just seems a dick move. I suppose I am lucky in that I am still working my way up to 350, so I am not seeing the diminishing returns. Plus they have at least come out and confirmed this and q
  15. This is from Cosmo on reddit. Not only did they go year one with the story, they went year one with the meanness as well. That is an intentional change from TTK for the sole reason of slowing your progress. I did wonder why with 8 billion people on my friends list only one or two had got over 350. Talking of mean it turns out you can only hold one Forge offering at a time, and one in the vault. Unlike the Crota ruins. Again, looks like intentionally being miserly bastards to slow things down. I suppose for most it will be running endless
  16. The king returns, and he still comes with Wolfpack rounds. I love the quest. Not only is it varied, but the payoff is great. Not just the weapon, but specifically the last section before you get a weapon. There was sweating, there was swearing, and eventually there were many, many explosions. So while I think the majority of the story missions were lacking, they still haven't lost the nous that made Taken King so good. I look forward to hearing about the raid. Probably for the best I am not going to be on for a few days now, gives them a few days to maybe fix a potential engr
  17. New weapons spoilers, of the yellow variety.
  18. I wouldn't say the story is the worst they have ever done. On the same level of Crota, so adjust expectations accordingly. Seems there is some post story stuff just like TTK. As for how I actually found it...(spoilers include quest rewards if that is a concern) Been having a look at the vendor stuff. New Monarchy seems terrible again. Some decent scout rifles on offer, maybe someone with more knowledge and experience can tell me which ones are good - aside from just infusing the Hung Jury like a sane man.
  19. Oh hey guys, who's ready for a big day of Destiny...oh. Oh. Oh hey guys who's ready for a big day of Paragon, with maybe some Destiny in the evening? (I don't remember any of the other expansions having this trouble, so I'd put it down to something breaking. Give Bungie at least some credit for once)
  20. I'm assuming new raid is going to be like the old ones, as far as rewards go. Sure, there will be people here who will be sititng in orbit waiting for the raid to drop. There will still be loads of people who won't touch it for a bit till they have levelled up. Plus, even when the really heavy players have finished the raid they may not even get any good loot drops from it anyway (sorry guys, but Bungie RNG hates everyone equally). Add to that it will take weeks to get the raid down to a single play session (practice, getting the loot drops). People won't be able to attend every week. Fi
  21. I am cherry picking here, but compare "Run fast, avoid holes in ground, hang around a light bulb for a bit then repeat" vs "Organise three groups, each one has to stand on a plate and defend it at all costs" Or "Grab a sword, hit the boss, shoot the boss" vs "One group goes into this portal, one person grabs a shield that removes a debuff as the others kill enemies and shoot ticking time bomb. Guys outside have to defend a bit, then get on centre platform as shield person protects everyone as they hammer the boss. Oh, and the groups are random" The raids are different
  22. I remember watching streams of people trying to get KF done first. I knew at the time I couldn't put enough into the game to do the raid any time soon, so I thought might as well watch. Loved watching all those streams trying to work out the mechanics. In some respects it is better to go in blind and discover it for yourself. Then again if you don't have a regular group to hammer it for a few days after it launches you may as well just try and pick up tips from people round here. KF and VoG are especially good for that. Sure, you could spoil yourself on how to do it. But can
  23. So far in Destiny, most of the old content gets left behind. The higher level strike playlist right now is just TTK stuff, so stuff like Devil's Lair doesn't feature. There is zero reason to do any raid aside from KF outside of the fun. As they seem to be making a deal of year 3 (with the book waiting for be unlocked) they must have plans to maybe rejig some older content. I would be amazed if they weren't aiming for Destiny 2 this time next year, so they can make a big deal of year 4. I cannot see them adding any brand new stuff outside of RoI. Of course, I wouldn'
  24. It has been a long time coming, but after all this waiting it is finally here. I am getting up early tomorrow, getting all ready and then finally I can look forward to going back into something I haven't been into for ages. Yeah, my eye test is at 9:30am tomorrow at Specsavers. What do you mean there is something else to look forward to? As I have missed a lot, is it worth playing it right now or just wait till tomorrow? Not done a hard mode Oryx but being at 315 and not having raided for months don't fancy getting into that just yet. Only thing I wo
  25. Is it wrong I see all these reviews, I see all this feedback, and I STILL refuse to be swayed until at least a week after release? Anyone would think I bought 2015 or something. Really going to need you guys to test it out and tell me the online isn't terrible multiple times before I budge. God dammit Codemasters, even when you apparently do a good thing I ain't buying.
