    @MagicPrime — I hope that last night, when you kept popping in and out of the party due to NAT errors, each time you entered you were shouting "HEY MOTHERFUCKERS!"

    For me, I'm honestly scared to just jump into a chat that's not specifically labeled as PAX. A huge part is being low on the social scale, which makes how I raid and attempt to lead raids kind of strange.

    The other part is that I'm afraid I'm going to intrude on real life friends. I know it's awkward for me when I'm doing stuff with an RL buddy and we're talking about work or family and all of a sudden a guild members jumps in. So even when I see other clan peeps that I've run with, I tend to avoid just jumping into chat with them if it's not specifically marked as PAX.

    On the Xbox side the only time we tend to lock parties is raid time and that's usually only in the early weeks of normal/hard/challenge .

    EDIT: after that, if you joined a party and heard someone counting down, you just keep quiet.

    I had to reset my PS4 and my Router to get whatever the hell was causing that to work itself out. I fell asleep at 9PM EST last night and woke up a little after midnight. Apparently during that 3 hours of weakness two or three groups of people that I know and probably could have weasled my way into their fireteam completed the raid.

    Now I know that I can't sleep ever again.

    does ps4 have the "appear offline" option yet?

    i love that on xbone because i am sometimes just feeling totally antisocial and just want to pew mans so i'll just go offline and do my own thing

    last i knew you couldn't do that on ps4 so i just have never tried

    but it does avoid the whole "oh man, sorry bro, i'd normally be cool with grouping but right now i'm just doing my own thing" thing

    basically, for me at least, if you see me online, i'm up for group stuff

    if i'm not up for group stuff, you won't see me online

    It does yeah, you still show up on the clan tab though which isn't great.

    well that uh

    kind of defeats the purpose

    Appear offline doesn't work in a few games when you're in a clan because most games don't check that status when you're ingame.

    It's frustrating that's there no simple definitive way to group up unless it's people you play with regularly. Personally I mind getting invites or people joining a chat at any time, I'm happy to shoot aliens with people. I'd just say the number 1 rule is don't be a toxic arsehole who feels entitled to other people's leisure time.

    I think you can actually fiddle with how Destiny views your status using the app.

    We had occasional secret Tuesday raids during Age of Triumph to run VoG/CE when they weren't the featured raid. Other than that it's been Thursday only.

    You can, yeah. Should be part of the long press of the PS button? I can't quite recall, but I think it's in there somewhere.

    ah, I guess I figured that would just continue through to Destiny 2.

    no, those and the story mission milestones are one time deals so don't reset.

    Power level really doesn't seem to help out on the majority of challenge from what I've seen. Like my titan is 302 and public events can wreck me all the same as if I was 102.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Hi, so first time caller, long time listener of the thread.
    I really liked the D1 lore and I'm really interested in the D2 lore (or maybe lack thereof?). I have ran into about 50 different things I can "scan for lore" and have been reading the weapons and armor lore but I was hoping there was a thread somewhere that puts it all together. Anyone know of such a thread?

    I'm really having a hard time deciding whether to level my hunter or warlock next. I played a lot of Hunter in D1 and love Night Stalker, but D2 warlock looks really cool

    what if light level doesn't actually do anything and it's just a placebo number they put in the game to keep us playing

    Awesome, thanks guys. This guy seems pretty knowledgable and his accent makes him sound super official.
    Maybe he's gunning for the position of Speaker, I heard there is an opening (too soon?)

  • AuburnTigerAuburnTiger Registered User regular
    Myelin Games is my favorite Destiny lore guy. Byf is ok but back during D1 he used to sometimes give more speculation than actual lore and wasn't always clear on the difference. His production value is nice, though.

    I would give up Poledancing entirely if I could just have "SUMMON A GALL DANG TANK" as a super ability sub-class.

    oh! that reminds me! weird thing happened last night. running strikes with @Chanus s and @Crippl3 and we got a tank on Inverted Spire. just sitting there waiting for us as we dropped down to the section covered in craters. guess that summoning plate is there for a reason, though that's certainly the first time i've seen or heard of it happening.

    I always loved the fully produced/voice acted/fully foley'd Grimoire card readings Byf used to do on the Guardian Radio podcast. All the Last Word/Thorn stuff was super good.

    yeah, though maybe worth mentioning that was the normal strike playlist version and not the nightfall

    see i had put together a last chance nightfall group yesterday

    and forgotten that i had never hit the milestone on xbox to open up the nightfall

    it was neat either way

    Are public events slightly different right now or am I imagining things? There's a giant healer shank that appears with the walkers on Titan, and the Hive ritual seemed to have more bosses as well.

    It'd be pretty cool if they're not the same each week

    I'll check him out. Looks like Bungie did a spot on him in April. I would prefer more organization of the lore into story form rather than speculation. I usually like to leave that to thread discussion among friends.

    I do have to say it can feel real lonely when you see clan people doing things but you personally don't get invited or worse get over booked invited destiny 1 tended to have this issue as well.

    Dont be shy to jump into parties (as long as you see they aren't in the raid or trials). I know at least on the Xbox side I've never felt like its a bad thing to do and I've been able to group up and do lots of cool stuff with new people as a result.

    Plus I mean most people know you. You have been one of us for a long time. You ain't intruding.

    This goes counter to me socially. Like anytime I join a party I always feel like i'm intruding. Socially I have a huge ton of hang ups. If I'm not invited I feel bad for joining anything.

    This is me in a nutshell. I have to give myself a pep talk every time I join a party chat in order to get my brain to shut up. So most of the time I just do things solo hoping for some kind of invite. It's entirely stupid but it's hard to quiet your brain.

    What's weird is people think of me at work as social and such, but inwardly I'm horrible at anything and constantly afraid I offend or anger people, so I find myself eating lunch alone, hurrying back to my desk to post on the forums.

    I think most people associate "talkative" with "social" when thats not necessarily always the case.

    They totally do.

    But in game, yeah if you see me online send me a party invite, though I do have the occasional mike issues because fucking live.

    My buddy and me had to go to game chat, because he could hear me, but I Could not hear him in a live party.

    I'm going to make it my mission to invite you every time I see you.
