#178957 I'm getting a little tired of your lack of communication skills Bungie......

Posted by mrscorps on 10 February 2016 - 08:24 AM

So, you're frustrated by vague terminology which you don't comprehend, for which there may be explanations provided by third party testers who may have taken the time to come to a clear determination as to what said vague terminology actually means in application, but you also don't want to invest the time to research and read for yourself / watch vids explaining their findings, but instead want to complain to the internet and take no real meaningful action, when you could. 

 

You're angry and/or frustrated because you're not being spoonfed.

 

What's that going to accomplish again?

 

Thats one of the most empty statements I've seen lately. 

 

Spoonfed would be complaining about not knowing something that is ingame but requires search ingame to find. Complaining about that would be lazy and would be demanding to be spoonfed stuff that is found ingame. By anyone.

 

However, saying that 3rd party entities have tested and come back with reasonings about such stuff as a valid source of information easily accessed is wrong. Thats not how its supposed to be. We aren't playing a Planet Destiny, Reddit, wtv game. We are playing a bungie game. Nothing about stats, ability inner workings, etc should need to be found outside of the game.

 

There are hidden stats ingame. Aim Assist, Recoil Direction, Equip Speed, Zoom but also Accuracy which is not actually measurable it appears but SEEMS to be a conjunction of weapon bloom, hit box size at ideal ranges, aim assist and  god knows what more. Bungie talks about something which a given perk changes but doesn't explain what that something is or does. And even the defined stats like for example range, have weird perks. Rangefinder - Increases range while aiming down sights. Ok...by how much? Double? What if the weapon is already max range within that class (like it happens with Sidearms), does it buff the range beyond that? I've seen people say tat not and others that yes. If no, why is it there? If yes, then by how much? Does it double range? How does it increase range btw? Space Magic? Lets talk stability. How can a weapon like Hard Light have max stability and kick more than a weapon with noticeably less stability like Monte Carlo?  How can Rodeo, which reduces recoil (somehow), have a bigger effect than a perk that actually changes the stability stat like fitted stock? Persistence. Weapon grows more accurate the longer it is fired. Does it mean it becomes more stable? Does it Aim assist increase? Does the bloom of the shots tighten? What happens? Target Acquision. Is it Aim Assist? Strong Recoil Control. Surely it can't mean stability as that stat doesn't change with it so...what is it exactly? Why does Charge Rate on fusions have a bar that you can't increase beyond middle point, regardless of your starting point, perks or whatever? You can't have a max charge fusion?

 

And it doesn't stop there. "Increases Agility by +2". Great...how much agility do I have in the first place? "Increased armor when using Arc-Based Sublclass". Ok, by how much and why doesn't my stat bar change accordingly? AND HOW MUCH DAMM HEALTH DO I HAVE?? "Between 186 and 212 according to various sources" Which sources? "Various ytubers that did a bunch of tests but couldn't really pin point any specific number beyond that..." If my super allows a damage reduction, why isn't that stated and specified? Why doesn't bungie say it clearly? Why is it all hidden?

 

We shouldn't need to go to 3rd party sites, watch ytube tests and what not to have "AN IDEA" (because, its all it is...an IDEA, not 100% facts...those only Bungie knows) of how this stuff works. Bungie made a murky job about the various stats that affect gameplay and I'd be all about that IF they didn't mention those existed. But they do. They show you stat bars of various stats that you don't know exactly what they mean or they show you atribute bars your character possesses but you don't have the slightlest idea of what they actually mean. 

 

In that regard, I'm sorry, but Bungie needs to get their language together and make sense. If there are stats that are to be hidden from us, then they should be hidden 100%. Both from data mining but also in perk descriptions and other things. If its hidden, I don't want to know it exists. If its mentioned, then explain to me what the fuck it is and how it works.




#163464 A Quick Personal Guide To A Good Fire Team

Posted by marckdwesthk on 08 October 2015 - 12:37 AM

Greetings everyone!  

 

I have been playing Destiny since the first week of launch.  While I cannot call myself some uber master ultra sherpa, I would like to consider myself a pretty decent fire team member and occasion leader when need be. 

 

I have had some people play with me over my time playing destiny and have been in many a fire teams (either 3s or 6s).  I would like to share with you some of my personal experiences as to how we can all maximize the effectiveness of your team while having a blast wth the people you are with!

 

1.  Master your class! - As silly as this may sound, some guardians still have yet to unlock the full potential of their class.  Go into patrol and try new things to see what works best for your class in regards to how you play.  

 

2.  Know your role - This has a lot to do with the previous point.  The 3 different class have different roles and knowing your role and how you can fit into your fire team will help make things much better for the over all success of your team.  Know what you need to do and what you do best.  If you are a defender, make sure you are on top of your bubble, if you are a stormcaller don't be shy with using your super or grenades when clearing out mobs, if you are a Voidwalker, max out your orb generation and remember your invis nade. 

 

3,  Communicate! - Communication is key.  If you don't have a functioning mic, find a way to work out via signals as to how to answer simple questions.  For those with mics, there are certain parts of every encounter that you need to be doing some talking, where some parts you can be on auto pilot.  However, communicating is always important if you want to build synergy within your fire team.  The King's Fall raid will absolutely test this.  Remember, don't shy away from calling out supers, check if anyone needs support, focus fire, count downs, etc.  The more you talk the more you will get to know the people you run with. 

 

4.  Don't be afraid to say "Sorry guys, I don't know" - Don't be shy to admit you don't know an encounter.  Its better that you be honest and tell your team you don't know how to do something than you not say anything and mess something up.  I cannot begin to express how important this is. I wanted to separate this from the communicating part of the tips because I think it more than just a simple act of communication.  Don't feel bad, our Destiny community is largely made up of some really awesome people.  Knowledge is power and using that knowledge you learn from people makes you even more powerful!

 

5.  Be patient - For people who consider themselves sherpas or leaders, lets be more patient with those that we choose to take with us into encounters.  Face it, we have all had to carry some buddies or "noobs" into encounters (Skolas was a pain in the ballz for this) and many times I had to remind myself that "yes, that was me at one time" so lets be mindful of people.  For those going into encounters for the first time (whither raids or strikes) listen to people and do your very best at what your raid team or fire team is asking of you.  Be patient with yourself as well and don't get frustrated, take a smoke break or a Tower break if you have to.  We are all here to enjoy this game. 

 

6.  Be friendly! - This community has been absolutely fantastic and I really feel like it sets itself apart.  I will be honest, I do some trash talking and jokes with friends but I'm not mean about it.  I have had a bad experience in Destiny a little back and it was not fun.  I would not want that for any guardian, I mean we are ALL guardians. 

 

7.  GO HAVE FUN! - Seems right to end this on a 7th point.  We are all here and part of this community because we are all guardians.  Lets just go and have fun.  Lets go and enjoy what we love about this game.  

 

Feel free to hit me up on XBL, I usually play longer during the weekends starting on Friday night (Friday morning EST).  I also play through out the week but not as long.  

 

Have fun everyone, happy raiding!

#187561 Rise of Iron

Posted by Noles on 19 May 2016 - 10:50 PM

From the article on the homepage:

 

 

The Iron Lords are all but gone, but this expansion could give insight into the stories of the Iron Wolves – WeyloranColovanceFinnalaDeidrisHaakonNirwen,AshravenBretomart, and Tormod. “The Iron Wolves, like the Iron Lords, came to the Last City’s defense during one its darkest hours. Little is known about the Iron Wolves or their relation to the Iron Lords, except that one day the Wolves gathered beneath an Ironwood tree and swore an unbreakable oath.”




#186913 R.I.P. Destiny 2014-2016

Posted by Lil'Ubo on 07 May 2016 - 07:20 PM

honestly, i stopped reading after the title. No one is supposed to play any game for 2 years straight. But to do so and then complain that there is no content, is ridiculous.

April's update make it easy for casual players to jump back in and jump back out. It was a quality of life update. They took out a lot of the grind (forever 29, forever 319)! And, as a result, when an expansion comes out later in the year, people will come back.

If you want to sell future copies of Destiny 2, you need to make sure that people can jump in and out and leave Destiny with good feelings.

You don't find PoE fun, ok. That is your opinion. I think it is great. I'm having a blast.

Conversely, regarding lack of PvP balancing, I don't give a crap about PvP. It is bad enough that they nerf sniper ammo perks on boots and chest because of PvP.

You have the right to voice your concerns and claim that it is 'dead'. But after hearing so many people cry wolf, I don't take it very seriously anymore.




#110552 Ended up guiding a group through VoG

Posted by Michaelashmore18 on 16 February 2015 - 04:43 AM

I've only fully completed it a few times, but I formed a group unaware that no one had much expirences at all. It was a pretty gratifying expirence. I really wish that someone had down the same for me in my first raid.

Just wanted to share, funny thing is I didn't get any good drops at all, but when I ran hard mode on my alt I it the helm, sparrow, vision, and crazy enough THE VEX MYTHOCLAST

I know it was just Rng but who's to say that karma doesn't control drops haha


#89565 Reviewers are p*****g me off

Posted by Ozaga on 12 September 2014 - 12:40 PM

Polygon gave Destiny a 6

Metacritic scored Destiny under NFL 2015

Gamespot is still reviewing it after a week...

 

Do people not understand what Destiny is? It's a beginning, a start of something new and exciting. The story is supposed to leave you with questions unanswered, the narrative is supposed to allow you to piece the story in your own way. The game is supposed to evolve over time and keep you excited for what is next.

 

But apparently people dont understand this and penalize this amazing game for it.

#86685 Two Clip Compilations (clips I didn't use in my montage)

Posted by yaters on 03 September 2014 - 03:27 PM

Listen KJHovey, I'm going to recommend you get some help before venturing into the Crucible.  There were multiple occasions where I saw you take at least 9 shots to kill 8 guys.  Plus, you died once that I saw in the first video.

 

I'll be putting together some videos that show LOTS of ways to die so you can get the hang of it.  I'll let you know when those are ready.

 

I'm kinda embarrassed for you...  :)

 

Seriously though, looking forward to watching your videos once you have more than a few weeks with the game. 




#83206 Level Cap is 30 & More (interview)

Posted by Noles on 21 August 2014 - 11:36 AM

From this interview we've learned:

 

  • Level 30 is the cap
  • AI behavior will get more complex as we level up
  • There will be many updates in the future, most of which will be influenced by the community
  • Beta leveling was accelerated 
  • Beta rare+ item drop frequency was increased



#79839 What does the "Lock in" and "illumination" feature does?

Posted by Free Healing on 03 August 2014 - 03:47 PM

Lock In for Weapons Increases their Attack Damage Rating, but makes it so your choice of Scope, Ammo, Magazine, Barrel ect ect are "LOCKED" from that point and you can't change between them anymore. It doesn't disable any bonuses that you've chosen but it means you can't choose between which bonuses you want at any time now.

 

"Harden" for Armor basically does the same thing but with an Armors Defense Rating.

 

Illumination is just like Lock in with a twist. Every class has Illumination but none of them affect the same Stat. Titan Illumination increases Armor, while Warlocks increases Recov. and Hunters increases Agility. Like "Lock In" and "Harden" once you do this you'll no longer be able to switch between Grenade Types, Moment Types/bonuses, Training, ect ect and you'll have to live with whatever you decided to have unlocked when you clicked on Illumination. 

 

In addition to that, using Illumination will actually cause the subclass you "Illuminated" to spawn a brand new level 1 no XP version of that same Subclass (like a subclass baby) for you to level up again and maybe build a different type of Guardian.

Yet another Destiny is Dead post. *for you FTFY.

Don't try to discount the fun that everyone else is having because you aren't enjoying a game.


#179416 To those who need help increasing their light level

Posted by HockeyDad21 on 14 February 2016 - 05:09 PM

I don't mind helping others out get through a mission or the sorts and you probably became friends with me through this forum, which I don't mind. I have a problem with those that decide to automatically join me and add me into a party without asking me first. As a courtesy, please message the person first with whom you would like to play with first and ask. It's very annoying when you're in the Tower or out on patrol doing your thing and then all of a sudden you get that message that x has joined your party and then all of a sudden I get asked if I can help them. 

 

Just need to get that off my chest and to give newbies a head's up. Most players don't mind helping out but please just ask. Yes, we might say no because there are things we want to do ourselves or we have some other plans, but for the most part we will say yes if you just make a courtesy message and ask.




#162854 How old are most Destiny players?

Posted by redafro1980 on 05 October 2015 - 06:11 PM

OK. Got everybody beat. I'm 53. My son plays and I thought it looked pretty cool so I started one night and I love it. Currently at 296 on hunter and 295 on warlock. Want to get going on a titan. The game is a good way for me unwind from life's stuff. Only thing I hate is the stress that came come from raids when you mess up and screw up the team. Guys who rage quit because others are not up to their standards are the worst. Wish I could find some really chill older dude groups who understand that this is a friggin GAME.  I'm not bad but for whatever damn reason I can't jump worth a crap. Really pisses me off but I guess it is true. Old white men can't jump!




#91502 I wish....

Posted by yaters on 27 September 2014 - 08:10 PM

...there was a bounty to sneak into the tower later at night without anyone seeing you and put a sniper round through the dome of the Post Master and the Cryptarch.  I'd even do it for just a single glimmer.  I think those guys secretly work for the Darkness.  That annoying little Wall-E robot and the blue-faced freak have me yelling and shaking my fist at the TV late at night.  And since I'm old and tired it comes out as "You mother-scratchin sonofabiscuit" or some variant.  My usual pattern is to play way too irresponsibly late and then one last quick trip to the tower before turning off my system.  I end up going to bed angry all the time.  So tonight I'm waiting in the shadows for all the guardians to go to bed and then operation 'Assasinate the Ass-Clowns' goes into motion.  Sorry if you like those guys.  Better take some time to say your goodbyes.

#89135 Destiny Release Party Swag.

Posted by Mr. Badger on 09 September 2014 - 05:43 AM

Pictures to come but I received the following:

* 1 of the first 600 PS4 copies of Destiny. My disc number is 026. I have an Xbone but still pretty cool.

* A strategy guide signed by a group of the developers

* More free Red Bull than I've ever drank, or had on my person, in my life!

* 2 packets of Destiny themed buttons

* Tons of Destiny themed stickers

* A black shirt with Destiny design art on it.

* More pictures than I knew what to do with. Some were kind of janky quality.

* Got to shake hands with Jason Jones, co-founder of Bungie and Deej. Fun fact: The video I posted of Deej on YouTube was the THIRD, and final one, I have of him. He asked if the other ones were bad and I told him "Nope. We're (Destiny News) just hungry!" Full write up to come when I'm not half asleep


#172323 A Thank You to the PD Forum community

Posted by michael6745 on 04 December 2015 - 10:02 AM

It's getting to be the end of the year and I look back at 2015.  I've been playing Destiny since December of 2014.  I knew I was missing a lot of the Destiny game and started looking around and found Planet Destiny and this forum and joined in Sept 2015.  I wanted to thank this community for being open and helpful to me and just being a fun place to cut up with fellow Destiny players as well as being a place to come for help even with the stupidest things.  It has made my Destiny game much more enjoyable.

 

THANK YOU!

 




#126273 Xero Chance - Weapon of The Week

Posted by Xero on 04 May 2015 - 05:18 AM

Xero Chance - Weapon of The Week

Guardians:
I will be incorporating a Weapon of The Week challenge into my weekly Destiny Adventures moving forward in an attempt to maintain my sanity and to live in a state of denial in regards to the RNG System potentially hating me just as much as my Mother in Law does.

What is that I hear?
"But Xero, what do you mean?"


Each week I will surrender to my fate and play with Whatever Primary Weapon Drops for me during the Nightfall.
- Failing a Primary Weapon Drop from that I will play with the First Primary Weapon to Drop for me in either of the two raids.
- Failing a Primary Weapon Drop from that I will play with the First Primary Weapon I receive in a Package.
- Failing a Primary Weapon Drop from that I will play with the First Primary Weapon to Drop for me in any ROC Strike.
- Failing that I wll be playing Super Mario for the week ...
- Failing that I will force purchase whatever Xur is selling that week even if it is No Land Beyond.
- If Xur is off sick I will purchase a Primary from either of the Quartermasters while Blindfolded.


* Only Legendary or Exotic Primary Weapons are to be considered for this challenge.

Each week I will provide feedback via the forum on the weapon from early stages right through to however far I get it upgraded during the week.
I will also be very Vocal in regards to the weapon's shortcomings over Both party Chat and Fireteam Voice Channel should anyone feel the need to receive feedback in realtime.

So if you see me running at a Hive Major with nothing but my un-upgraded No Land Beyond screaming something unintelligible, wave, it might be the last time you see someone that stupid ingame.
* Unintelligible screams normally decode into Afrikaans swearwords strung together so best not to repeat them in public or social spaces.

--------------------------------------
Week 01: 04 May - 11 May 2015
Word of Crota
http://db.planetdest.../view/437329200
Obtained from: Crota's End Hard Mode or The Place of a Million Deaths as my Stats like to refer to it

Initial Thoughts: (Un-Upgraded)

While the Word of Crota may look good on paper and will no doubt add to your overall prestige whilst carrying it around the tower, I am less than impressed so far.
While not upgraded at all the weapon feels difficult to aim accurately, partially due to the size and layout of the specific ingame model but also due to the fact that the green light effects on the side keep distracting me.

Recoil provides a welcome burst of wall killing goodness as the weapon kicks out of control and hits everything around the intended target the second one starts pulling the trigger slightly
faster than an elderly narcoleptic after six doses of flu medication would.

Looking forward to upgrades that improve stability as the recoil is currently the largest detracting factor.

 

Update 01:

 

Unlocked and Upgraded the First Two Upgrades (Zen Moment and 1x DMG) along with the two additional Sights

Performance on ROC Strikes is debatable, the weapon does significant damage but is still not really any fun to use :/

* I did find that the overall stability is not the real issue as it seemed at first but that the actual animation of the weapon firing makes it feel like you are suffering from severe borderline seizure like recoil.

If you wait for the crosshair to reset and fire it at a slightly slower pace it seems to be less bothersome.

 

- I suffered on Phogoth and had to consistenly switch to special and heavy to get the job done.

https://www.bungie.n...843009274659066

- Most fun to kill so far has been Goblins, although as a lower tier enemy and quite possibly the only thing I can kill with ease in the entire game this is not much of an achievement

 

Update 02:

 

Unlocked and Upgraded Speed Reload and almost finished unlocking the next Damage Node and Hammer Forged

In the Nightfall last night as well as the Weekly Heroic that both happened to have Void Burn active I had loads of fun playing with this weapon.

At one stage it was like it was melting faces off everything in the area on its own.

 

Damage to Minotaurs with their shields was tremendous and I could literally one shot anything that even looked remotely like a Harpy while Fallen Captains with shields took around 3-4 shots depending on how fast I was running away from them at the time and where my shots landed.

* As mentioned in a previous thread I always run away from Enemies backwards, making me look braver than I actually am.

 

This weapon might be growing on me ... which basically leads me to believe that once I unlock the Hive Major Damage Perk I will actually be sorry to switch to something else next week :)

 

Final Update to come On Monday along with First Impressions on the Weapon I will be using for next week, the seemingly innocent and non lethal looking Venation III, which may or may not fire flaming marshmellows instead of lethal ammunition

 

Update Final:

 

Unlocked all the upgrade nodes on the weapon and upgraded everything except the final two nodes.

The Word of Crota has grown on me over the past week and I have to admit to being wrong in my first assessment of it.

It is capable of delivering massive damage over a set period of time and has setup options for either ranged play with Hammer Forged or Close Range Combat with Explosive rounds.

* It should be noted that Phantom Gift does not work with Explosive rounds, or at least not in any discernable way.

 

Overall it is a great Hand Cannon and I would recommend levelling it as soon as you get it to make the most of it.

I used it on Crota's End this weekend to greate effect and with the added bonus damage to Hive Majors I at least contributed despite my level.
