Clan Perks.



These dates assume your clan hits the 100,000xp/week cap. QUITE lame in my opinion that the "Play Gambit Prime with Clanmates" becomes available seven weeks into the season of Gambit Prime, but the reward is a (powerful) Prime Weapon, which are rare as all hell, so that's no doubt an intentional way to renew interest halfway through the season.

Iirc Hamrick was the "play strikes" guy when they tightened the sbmm screws to the stupid degree and was behind the vanilla bullshit of destiny 2 PvP with no in air accuracy and "encourage team shooting".

This but unironically. Those 180 pinnacle weapons made PvP bland as gently caress.

There was a sweet spot between the 2.0 patch and before everyone got Lunas/NF where PvP was extremely good and loadouts were varied.

It might be more tolerable if you had to be legit good to get one (though it raises an valid debate topic where if you're that good it doesn't loving matter if you have an OP gun or not) because the problem I see is that any idiot can faceroll their way to one if they invest enough time and it's saturating the game. Now that it's even easier to grind glory it's going to get even more common and maybe in July Bungie will finally have to nerf it.

Yet another Patented Rasheed Prediction

Pinnacle weapons shouldn’t exist for pvp

But if they have to, Pinnacle weapons should be retired after the season except for private matches and pve

Yeah but even if its hard to get cunts will just ddos or pay someone else to do it.

I dunno. There is always going to be a downside. Would be more balanced if the 180s had recoil

I think the recluse is a good example of a gun done right. Powerful but with an array of drawbacks.

See this one was good because they retired it at the end of the season *checks earpiece* I’m getting reports it technically wasn’t retired

Or was it high fives?? I actually would give hugs at Bungie. But the hugs would turn into belly-to-belly suplexes through everyone's desks. Then I'd go hunt down Josh Hamrick, deliver a Superman Punch and put him in a Sharpshooter. After he tapped I'd find whoever has the authority to say yes to dedicated servers. I'd cut a promo, first off, because I have a lot to get off my chest, Mean Gene, and then I'd give them the big boot and a leg drop.

I've wondered before if he goes home and lies to his children and wife that daddy went out and worked hard, earned a paycheck. Tbqh I'm glad he's a step closer to facing up to his deceptions.

Put them in a new tier called mythic with an orange icon. All other equipped gear must be blue.

Also a 10% chance of getting booted to orbit every time you load into a game to simulate the effect of all those ddos' you inflicted on other players.

I liked when Hamrick ruined D1 pvp at the very end and left it for dead, and followed it up with the liver shot of D2 vanilla crucible. Incredible legacy.

I can count the number of redrix, mountain top, and recluse deaths I've had on one hand, so I think Pinnacle weapons on the whole have been a good idea, conservatively executed.

The problem is equal parts the 180 archetype itself, and the fact that nearly every zone of every map is perfect for it.

BlindSite

I don't have a problem with pinnacle weapons but they can be a pain in the rear end. Not Forgotten was easily best in slot, followed by Lunas Howl and while the former was difficult to acquire the latter just took a bit of time and effort.

The recluse isn't game breaking at all but takes some skill to use and is situational in terms of when it's effective. Not Forgotten on the other hand is probably over powered for the sand box.

The way d2 overall was been designed is kind of annoying the PvP side having assists counting so much, the whole team shooting dynamic, almost all supers making you an unkillable god, the terrible design decisions in the trials introductions, spawn design that has been fixed in other franchises for nearly a decade. On the otherside 95% of pve activities being so easy you can sleep walk through them, the majority of quests being glorified fetch chores that take time not talent etc etc.

The gun play and fun stuff is fun enough to keep me coming back to play but I gotta wonder what the d3 future is going to look like.

I think the idea of limiting certain equipment to certain playlists is worth exploring, I just worry about Bungie going off the deep end with it and balancing raids by banning cluster rocket launchers or whatever.

Basically they'd have to gently caress it up spectacularly then waste 9 months dialing it back until the game is fun again.

Good Hunter, what... what is this post?


On the one hand, I do think that the insistence on co-balancing pvp and pve and cross over loadouts has overall been detrimental to the health of both

but on the other hand, I solo-queued my way to luna's/mountaintop/recluse, so gently caress you, you can pry them from my cold dead hands
