    Last night I swear I spawned away from my team in the other team's backyard who quickly turned and greeted me. This happened like 3 times every 5th game roughly.

    The spawns are terrible. Maybe they've always been this bad, but now that the game is so team shooting oriented it just hurts more.

    Going solo was always tough, but now even the spawns work against teamwork. The moment I spawn alone I look for a teammate and sometimes I'm not even remotely close.

    At first I was kind of raging at my teammates, but more often than not it is the spawns.

    That's awesome. I wonder what his PSN ID is. Maybe its the name from one of his movies like Jack Burton, Snake Plissken, Christine, Michael Myers or simply The Thing.

    I play with randoms so when we go against a clan of 4 we get slaughtered. I still go out on my own and want to strangle my team when I get mowed down by 3 @ control point A,B or C and my 3 can't get 1 zone.... WTF! :yfire:

    Had a 8 game winning streak with randoms earlier tonight . Lol. Could not believe it . Ran through the raid real quick with my clan then back to banner . We just finished up for the night. 19 wins in a row . What a night for tokens! The raid auto rifle kicks a## in pvp. I run raid scout and raid auto for my setup . The rocket launcher is good too because of the cluster bomb explosions after the main blast for clearing out the flags .

    I play with randoms mostly. Not sure how some still don't know the cardinal rule for Crucible, stick together.

    But with dull loot system set up and the dire weapon rolls I just can't be asked to keep playing IB.

    That's because most players end up playing every game mode like clash. Also the way the tokens work, once you have little chance to win you may as well just camp it out or even let the mercy rule take over. Look at people's captures at the end. I regularly see people with 0 -2 captures. In 4v4 instead of 6, it is almost a given that you are going to get more caps.

    I have won 2 games out of at least 20. Going solo is just impossible. I'm getting paired with the worst players (people with 1 cap and a .25 kill/death ratio). I'm winning a ton of gun battles, so matchmaking must be keeping me with other scrubs, but the other team seems to hold 2 points and know how to do it while mine just die over and over. My k/d is regularly over 2 so it isn't like I am getting run over myself (that's actually very high for me).

    I don't even get how losing that much is statistically possible. On work nights there's just no point in me teaming up as I only play for a bit.

    Good news, guys. Xur is selling one of the crappiest exotic weapons in the game. Now you too can experience the crushing disappointment of what was my second exotic weapon drop.

    Yeah the Fighting Lion is absolute junk. Most exotics aren't that good, but this is useless. This is the first Xur gun I've already had. I don't have the Titan boots oddly enough. Not sure if those are worth picking up though, as I rarely use submachine guns in either pve or pvp. Don't really see much reason to use them unless they nerf autos. With my playstyle range is usually king.

    I think I'll buy Titan exotic boots and equip the kinetic Antiope SMG with the Riskrunner as my energy weapon. To reload all I have to do is switch between the weapons and can keep firing for as long as I have ammo. This is more for fun, I'll have to test this out on public events.

    Which gun is the Antiope? Is that the Iron Banner SMG?

    Nahhh, just a regular legendary but you could use the Iron Banner SMG as well. The only problem I see using a SMG in both the kinetic and energy slot is you'll have to get in close.

    I watched Datto’s review this morning of Xur’s gear and he more or less said those boots are extremely fun for “non-important” activities where you can use any weapon you want. Not good for crucible or nightfall, but really fun for general playing.

    I just never find a use for SMGs in crucible. Autorifles and high ROF Pulses are just so good. The Lincoln Green and whatever the IB one is really good.

    That isn't really true. If you're playing control right and are a half decent team you shouldn't have high capture stats.

    You still want matchmaking for raids...lol.

    Bungie needs a solo quickplay playlist. Problem solved.

    I like it actually. What it. needs is a pair of exoctic gauntlets that gives an extra nade in the pipe and a rreload buff, then I would use it all the time.

    Isn't this expected? We all know digital sales have increased massively sincce D1 released. While I do expect overall sales to be dowh the big decrease in retail sales shouldn't surprise anybody.

    Have you completed the raid yet ? If not send me a friends request . Entreri804 and we can run you through it this week . You will definitely get raid armor drops and most likely the raid helmet. Should be a 300 helmet . You can raise it to 305 with the +5 upgrade. We also go back after we beat the final boss and use the keys you find to the secret sections of the ship and unlock all the chest for additional read gear drops .

    Not luck. getting the same weapon 4 times in a row has nothing to do with luck.

    Yeah. Boredom set in really fast in this. I’m also not really into shooters anymore so there is that too.
    Once my crack addiction to Shadow of War dies down a little, I’ll probably doing this up again.

    I had pretty good luck in IB for the very little time I put in. Still never got a helmet or the grenade launcher though. To be honest, I didn't play very much though. It wasn't even worth grinding for the milestone.

    The game isn't terrible, but it isn't pulling me in to play at all. I'm like 292 or something... why should I bother grinding to 305? Feels more like a chore than anything. Hopefully the 1st expansion does something fun with the game.

    Well Buungie said they are listening to the 'lack of end game' criticism and will do something later and reveal more soon.

    The irony is they said the samething in D1 and never really did anything.

    They also said they have ideas on making duplicate weapons more worthwhile...but then, they said the exact same thing like 2 months ago and never elaberated.

    Itt's actually amazing how little Bungie learned in the last 4 years...almost as amazing as how D2 hasn't evolved at all.

    I also did the Iron Banner grind and while I got all the armor except the bond for my Warlock I couldn't get all the armor for my Titan. I hate that Bungie changed IB drops to RNG. It was so much better knowing you could get what you want once you reached a certain level but now its all about tokens and the chance for loot you want.

    The loot system is dull.
