The new activity is ok. A lot of add clear with some mechanics thrown in, but easy to clear with randos (the default is only 1100 power so easy for now). Could be fun at higher levels.

It is 3 person matchmaking instead of the random public event thing which is nice.

If anyone is wondering WTF we need to do this season. It isn't complicated when someone explains it, but the game doesn't do that

Since they removed SBMM from crucible 9 out of 10 games ends in a mercy. PvP is in a terrible state right now.

The new season is great, but yeah PVP is nearly dead. I always thought I was decent at PVP, but now I go out and get wrecked. I don't even try and play anymore. I just stick to PVE.

What's dumb is they take out SBMM and all you get is the top % of players and every game is super sweaty anyway.

It's popping on consoles.
Most don't want sbmm.

It isn't just SBMM.

They've completely ignored PVP. Stasis is tons of fun in PVE but is annoying in PVP.

There's few rewards for playing, which means it is mostly just the top players in there stomping. Iron Banner is supposed to be the mode for everyone, but it turns into a rout. Those weak rewards aren't worth suffering through getting frozen every 30 seconds.

You wouldn't need SBMM if you got more of the player base into it.

I'll have to try on Xbox and see if it is much better, but last time I tried it was the same nonsense.

Yeah I'm sure its different on console, I haven't had the luck of scoring a next generation system yet. But on PC, the quick play lobbies will humble you FAST.

Salvagers Salvo is fun to use, it's kind of like a grenade launcher version of Loaded Question.

I stopped playing this for a while now. I used to be in iAM (still in but just inactive), one of the top PvP clans, from Destiny 1 but I just can't find myself to come back anytime soon. Not sure, maybe just burnt out. Seems like Bungie's just rehashing and bringing back all the Destiny 1 weapons and levels.

Sometimes I feel it's best to take a break from this game, then when you come back there's plenty to catch up on, I'm definitely addicted to it again.

I did my first ever Deep Stone Crypt today and got Eyes of Tomorrow :laugh:. One of the guys in my clan has run it 76 times with no luck. I kind of felt bad, just a little.

If you missed the Heir Apparent exotic last time (it was a long grind), go for it now, it is a super short quest. I think the quest drops randomly, just start farming the new strike playlist and I got it right away. You basically collect 50 laurels and then get 100 machine gun kills and you have it. Takes like 3-4 strikes. I'm working on getting the catalyst now.

Also it is easy getting platinum medals. Just grab the nightfall one and run it on the easiest difficulty. There's no champions or modifiers and it is super fast.
