So when Bungie was pulling ideas from Overwatch, did they include streamlining information like tinting grenades and supers based on which team they belong to, or callouts when its your teammate activating their super so you don't have to wonder if it's your Gunslinger or the enemy team's?

I haven't watched any PvP footage but from what I understand when someone activates super it shows who in the kill feed so you know if it was your teammate or not

There are definitely super fallouts in the kill feed.

Not sure about nades. Didn't stand out in the video I saw so I guess not.

The map on display says to me Bungie has been playing a lot of Overwatch too, which I'm kind of meh on.

Yeah it looks a lot like an Overwatch map which is a shame because I liked how wide and open a lot of Destiny 1 crucible maps were. That combined with the drop to 4v4 for everything is disappointing and gives the impression that everything's being scaled back and slowed down. I was looking forward to more 6v6 Mayhem and Rift

Do we know if the Moon, Mars, Dreadnought and Venus are returning in this game, or are the only locations the four new ones that they mentioned?

Presumably just the new locations.. Although D1 did have pvp maps that took you places you never go to, like Mercury (well, most people anyway )

I dont see any of those returning probably just the 4 mentioned today. I assume at least one of the expansions planned for Decemeber 2017 and Spring 2018 add a new patrol area.

Definitely no dedicated servers, but you already knew that.

quote:

We spoke with David Shaw, Bungie’s senior producer on the PC version, who told us Destiny 2 definitely wouldn’t have dedicated servers. I also pressed him on whether it would have a better tick rate than Destiny 1 which was abysmal, but he couldn’t go into any additional detail beyond saying it would still be some form of peer to peer.

Man that strike boss seemed really bullet sponge-y.. maybe it's just a gear issue, but meh, that wasn't nearly as cool as I'd hoped a "three-stage boss" would be. I didn't notice any mechanic other than what, the floor disappearing twice and the boss changing elements.

its very much gear related. why on god's green earth would they give promo players level matched gear on a reveal day? lmao @ giving a bunch of turbo nerds the gear needed to blow through brand new content in 5 minutes live

you're reading way too much into this.

While I sort of agree, they're showing the game off to a lot of people that wrote off the first game because of a lot of bad design choices, including bullet sponge enemies. It just didn't seem like the greatest look when they are definitely capable of creating more interesting encounters.

I said no cross save, not no cross play. What difference does it make to you if people can export their players to different systems? Asking genuinely, as I'm curious as to whether you don't want top level Xbox players to be able to jump to PS4 or vice versa, or what?
