    I still see a lot of people using it in PvE, mind. It does deal a decent amount of damage at a nearly unlimited range.

    yeah, nerfed but still popular :-)

    Just did Flashpoint and strikes last night, so will probably do my Crucible stuff tonight. Let's see what it's like.

    Note to Bungie: Making Mercury the weekly Flashpoint is fucking dull if you only give it one public event.

    Didn't see anyone using it in PvP this morning. It must have been one hell of a nerf.

    Maybe at some point they'll nerf the Wardcliff Coil too. It's almost impossible to run a Strike or Public Event without seeing volleys of rockets.

    Opinions on raid lair ?

    I've got three clears now and last night the boss was beaten first time.

    It's short but I really like it.

    its fun enough. IT is basically a harder strike which people have been asking for, for ages.

    It's probably there to make up for the COO strikes, which are essentially just rehashed story missions. They didn't even bother reskinning the bosses. A real disappointment there. And they aren't even fun to play, which makes it annoying when they turn up in the rotation.

    And I'm already tired of listening to Osiris and Sagira. I hope they won't turn up again in future DLCs. Give me Eris Morn and Variks again.

    I hadn't even thought that that would mean Flashpoint would be locked for anyone without COO - what the hell is Bungie doing??

    Not tried the Raid Lair yet, just not had a chance to try and find people to do it with, but it's at least had good reviews amongst the outrage.

    Awful lot of people still using the Prometheus Lens in crucible last night. The poor buggers didn’t know what hit them

    There's some cool looking new sets of armour coming with the winter event.

    ...It's locked behind Eververse. Of course it is.

    Gobsmacked at how determined Bungie are to kill their game. I've stopped playing entirely, and their gambit to tempt me back is...pay for more cosmetics? Who is making these decisions?!

    My fault I guess for buying the season pass. Live and learn (never to buy from Bungie again).

    Yeah I gave them the benefit of the doubt and gave Destiny another go when this was released but I'm long free of the shackles already thanks to their nickel and dime horse shit. Plenty of other games out there that are equally as enjoyable and don't treat me like a cow to be milked, while patronising me and telling me it's all meant with good intentions.

    I assume the last few pages with all the good bits are random Eververse drops

    I liked the old 3oC better. It was easier to just use whenever I wanted.

    The new one pretty much forces you to play for hours if you want to maximise its usefulness.

    With the fated engram and upcoming smart loot changes, you’ll probably have all the exotics in the game before too long anyway.

    @ecu aside from that, I still need exotics to increase my power level more quickly. I'm still only at 324 max.

    Just like in D1, where it took me like two weeks to go from 399 to 400, I expect it would take a while. Especially since powerful gear can only be obtained from weekly activities... and exotics.

    Stopped playing this for a while and kind of felt it was the right thing to do after I blitzed through the poor curse of Osiris campaign and strikes. Really a pretty bad expansion when you consider Rise of Iron before it, which was really good.

    Turns out it's the exact opposite of how I felt about destiny 2 though. I loved D2s campaign and pve stuff, but there was no incentive to replay anything. Curse of Osiris was bad but there's tons of replay value for the main game now.

    Quite impressed and disappointed at the same time.

    Since apparently there are not enough scandals about this game already, it turns out the new 3oC just aren't very good, since they only increase your base chances of getting exotic drops by 50%... and what's more, they currently don't work with Heroic Strikes.

    Bungie said a fix for that last issue is coming... in early 2018.

    I've totally dropped off of playing this, just no desire to grind away anymore, their new stuff isn't worth the bother if it just means you have to keep grinding the old stuff.
    I thought when the HDR finally dropped I'd have a reason to revisit the campaign with my third character but it hasn't really cranked up the visuals all that much and I just can't be arsed with it all. This is coming from someone who grinded away at the first one for almost a year solid. They must still be haemorrhaging players left right and centre by now.

    I still play, but my will is dropping fast. Once I'm done with the Forge, I don't think I'll play anything other than the weekly milestones.

    I thought the lack of loot and weak customization was to blame, but thinking about it, I'd still rather play Destiny 1. My stats in that game are established, and I already have all the good equipment. So I immediately dismantle everything I get. Which means it's not just a matter of loot or customization. There are deeper issues with the endgame in D2, but I can't quite identify them.

    Maybe it's the planet-specific bounties that don't easily let you mix and match with other activities, or the area-restricting patrols, or the event map that lets you simply jump from one event to the other, thus making them feel old fast. I'm not sure.

    The latest expansion is a massive let down. I couldn't even be arsed completing it.

    I have to agree that Curse Of Osiris was a huge let down. Luckily it only takes a couple hours it was that bad. Repetitive and tedious and loot was not that great.

    The expansion was fine. Cost me Ł12. The campaign was okay, couple of fun hours in beautiful locations. The raid lair, while short, is excellent and the new mp maps are okay. The strikes are a joke though.

    Curse of Osiris is decent for what it is, however Bungie still need to improve things to make Destiny 2 as good, if not better than the original.

    Just wish they'd have taken all the best bits of the first, and added all the new to make 2.

    Mayhem is a grim reminder that I actually suck at multiplayer, and only managed to get decent because they leveled the playing field. My K/D must have dropped sharply in just four matches.

    I disagree, they’re both decent but the one where you climb the tower might be my favourite in the whole game. The boss fight is so much fun.

    I don't like the Mercury strikes, but that aside, it's still a joke that they literally just reused two story missions, without even bothering to give them new bosses or even simply reskinning them to look a bit different.

    Well yeah exactly why they are a joke.
