Welcome!


There's a new Destiny coming out called Rise of Iron coming out September 20th. You get a rocket launcher early if you preorder but you can still get the same gun without the preorder as well. Don't get the preorder. Well, maybe get it if you forget when things come out like me. Also if you like rocket launchers, but in black. The old thread is too big so I'm here to make a new one.


ROI MAP OF THINGS

What is Destiny?
It's a game where you shoot guns, but not always in space. It's a cool place to hang out with bros. Sometimes you kill a cool boss and sometimes you teabag some dipshit in Austria.
There's three classes

Titan
Only class with a defensive void ball that you can play house in. They also can throw fire hammers and can smash their head into the floor to pretend to be a lightning bolt. Titans were football players in a past life as told in the lore.

Warlock
Warlocks use magic and can either make a giant purple death ball, throw fire grenades really fast, or turn into Palpatine. Warlocks have cool armor but have a lovely jump.

Hunter
Everyone hates hunters. They smell and don't contribute anything to the team. They can either ruin supers with a void ball, shoot a fire gun four times, or be really worthless in PVE with a tiny lightning knife.

http://i.imgur.com/gBkpWbA.gifv
What systems is it on?
It's on all four of the game systems tuned for adults, but the new poo poo is only on Xbone and PS4.
http://i.imgur.com/55WqT6s.gifv
Alteisen bought four copies of the game for four systems. If he says somethinng dumb just call him out on this piece of trivia.

http://i.imgur.com/jgr2Kl2.gifv
Teabag people you don't know?
Yeah, the Player vs. Player is Cool and Good when it works. Sometimes you can play people on Teach Tv. It's like regular TV but they show you how to play games.
There's also Iron Banner, or Boner for short. It's when your gear counts and people get really mad at stupid poo poo for one week out of the month. There's a wolf theme so it has something to do with the new wolf expansion pack.


Teabag people that you do know?
Totally, but you can only run in a 6 man wolf pack in raids and PVP.

http://i.imgur.com/8TEZpxh.gifv
I'm an idiot loser and and only have a couple friends, what do?
You can play Prison of Elders against a bunch of really bad players called NPCs.
You can also play PVP but you won't be as cool.
That is, unless you play Trials of Osiris. That's where 3 man teams get sweaty with each other. It happens on Thursday-Tuesday


I'm an idiot loser but I want more friends!

If you're an Xbro you join through here:

:siren: Attention Xboners :siren:

Bungie chat app sucks and we liek to post so join our cool guys Slack channel where you can post all your cool gifs and plan out pubstompings and whatever else.

Don't know what Slack is? Then gently caress off! jk, but for real it's basically IRC on 'roids and it's way better for organizing and chatting about video games.

PM me with your email address here or send it to my GT: Wrecks Box One to get an invitation.

YA BOY ETHAN COUCH posted:

So you've got a bone, and you wanna play with other boners?
You're in luck, Orbital Drop Shock Goons is hiring unpaid interns for the role of "Raid Scrub"! We're the only goon-only XBone clan for Destiny, and we're all pretty cool.

The old Destiny Xboner Spreadsheet is dead. :rip:

Long live the :boom:New Destiny Xboner Spreadsheet!:boom:

:thurman:-*-*-SIGN UP FORM-*-*-:thurman:

Add your GT and forums name there, as well as other pertinent information. Then go through and basically add all those people to your friends list. We got goons in plenty of timezones and you're almost always guaranteed to have a few online. Once you've got the krew added, just spam invites like crazy every time you log on. We like it when random dudes come in while we're getting busy.

How to apply to the ODSG, aka the Bone Krew:
1. Become a member of SA Goons, instructions in post above above
2. Go to: https://www.bungie.net/en/Clan/Detail/313913 and apply
3. Wait for Adregan and/or Kingly User (the admins) to approve.

Requirements for joining ODSG:
1. Have an Xbone (Microsoft Xbox One gaming console)
2. Have a huge dick and a convertible coupe
3. Be willing to have a good time and teabag people in PvP and PvE

Why should I join ODSG?
I don't have time to explain why I don't have time to explain why you should join ODSG. Actually, I have lots of time because I'm an IT worker and am getting paid to write this OP.

1. We have a good team of regular players, both for PvP and PvE
2. We raid every week multiple times
3. We work hard, we play hard, we bone hard. But we don't really actually care when we lose.
4. We're down to clown for most activities such as sherpaing raids, crucible, and team patrols of the cosmodrome

But I don't want to have to join ODSG, can't I just post here?
You basic bitch. This thread is almost always PS4 players, so you're gonna scroll through pages and pages looking for Xbone sign up sheets. The best way to guarantee you'll have people to play with is to either have irl friends (lol), or join our clan. Our clan chat is very active with players looking to organize raids and strikes and PvP every day, so it's best to just join the clan and post there.

My brother and me are gamers. He is unemployed and play World of Tanks all day, I have a job and support the pretense to be a normal function being.

This summer my sister left in our house the cage of my cousin hamster in the living room without telling us about it. Not having a reason to go to the living room (we all have our own room with big TV's to play videogames all day) the poor hamster died. The summer was specially hot this year, so it not only died, after a few days was a completely desiccated and odorless mummie.

I feel bad for the animal (I really do, plus is my cousin ex-hamster), but had a good laugh about it.

I want to render a analogy of this dead hamster and how Bungie manage loot in this game.

Bungie is me and my brother. And this hamster is the players.
The hamster is addicted to water and food. Players play Iron Banner for the rewards. Is supposed to be a high challenge high reward activity.
The hamster died without any water, under high temperatures and with not food whatsoever. Players find it confusing that after 30 games, they only have seen 2 or 3 items drop for anyone in any of the 30 games.

Actual true story: Not to rub it in (actually, yeah, I'm gonna rub it in), but my wife is also close to a decade younger than me and she's hot. She's a goon, into games, and she's a CSE major that can out-code most of the posers in this thread. And to return to an earlier point -- just perhaps, the people that cry sperg the loudest may want to look inward. And just perhaps, maybe I'm doing something right and the problem isn't with me.

You're too close when it pulses, and each pulse deals basically half health. The hitbox is larger then the lightning effect lets on sometimes. I think that if the edges of your vision are lightning, like the areas that turn red when taking health damage, you will get hit by the grenade when it pulses. There might be a "you're in the area of effect!" sound queue too.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Huh. Then Lightning Grenades had close to 180 degree radius? I was standing next to it, it was facing perpendicular to me, still got hit by it.

Either that or I got killed by a different lightning grenade than the one I could see on deathcam or Lightning grenades are loving insane.

\/ That makes sense. So much in Destiny you would never know unless you googled it or asked someone who has played longer. I still can't decide if I really like that or fuckin' hate it.
