I've been afraid to try it to be honest. I did a strike once and the 2 other players were popping off headshots so quickly. I was barely keeping up.

I'm hoping the ranked solo queue will offer some hope. Playing solo against fireteams is pretty tough. A little coordination goes a long way in this game. Control the heavy ammo and chain your supers in a row. There's not a lot to counter that. Even on console I had problems.

Shadowkeep should attract some more casual players too. The free game should bring in more noobs. Right now there's mostly just the hardcore crowd so everyone's really good.

PVP is still my one major problem with the game. The system is set up to stomp on solo players. The best guns are only attainable by higher rank players, which just separates the best from the rest even more.

I still may just stick to PS4 for PVP and do PVE on PC. I'm just so used to playing Destiny on a controller that I have so much muscle memory built up.
It's rough but I feel like I can be pretty good at it with a little practice. As far as the weapons go, if you have Ace of Spades, The Last Word, Thorn, or a good pulse rifle you are good to go.

With the community event on Mars a lot of people are running EP. I found it's a good way to get used to the M/K controls.

Yeah I've spent most of my time just doing routine PVE stuff. Finishing up some old quests and just farming for materials in Shadowkeep.

Hopefully by the time Shadowkeep comes around I'll at least be ok. It isn't even like I'm new to mouse and keyboard, it just throws me off worse in Destiny for some reason. I've been struggling to find the right sensitivity too.

I am enjoying it overall. It is nice to not get the dreaded screen shake and unstable framerate anytime the action gets busy on screen.

For anyone still on the fence, they are selling Forsaken + the old annual pass for $24.99 US now

Sidenote but almost everyone I know that plays D2 has multiple characters. I kind of feel like an anomaly because I have only ever played one character (Warlock).

I never find time for more than one character either. It just takes too much time to grind things out. I think Shadowkeep is going to be worse too as we're going to be constantly grinding up an artifact. I've been working on an alt who's like 730 but has no gear and is basically worthless.

Destiny already takes up way too much of my gaming time. I love the game but I can't play it like some people do. I need to mix in other games too. There's people that raid every weeknight with different characters to keep them up... I wish I had time for that.
