    I'm dreading seeing how bad comp is right now.

    Maybe I'll just run Hunter with skip grenade spam and hope for the best.

    At this point, I stick with comp after Fabled because I prefer 4v4 to 6v6, unless I’m trying to get a specific weapon triumph done or something and I don’t want to drag other people down with my performance.

    Oh, Bungie commented on the Comp issue:
    https://old.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/be8cxq/revelry_in_cruciblecompetitive/el5ny1j/?context=1000
    With the Revelry, we wanted to rejuvenate every activity type in Destiny with a global change to the Sandbox meta that lasted for a limited time. We knew this would be disruptive, but were willing to try the experiment because the event only lasts for a few weeks.

    It’s clear we overshot – instead of adding excitement and variation to the Crucible (especially in Competitive), we’ve instead made the experience random and frustrating.

    We don’t have the ability to immediately remove Tonics in Competitive via our servers. We’ll continue to investigate possible changes but this experiment will have to run the duration of the Revelry before we can patch a change.

    We’ve learned a lot from the last 2 days of Revelry. The next time we make changes that affect the overall Sandbox for a limited time, we will ensure a much better experience for the Crucible.

    It would have been nice if they'd seen this incredibly obvious result coming but this is about the best we can expect after they already screwed the pooch.

    It sounds good in theory, but it can get shutdown hard if you’re up against a competent team that’s ready for it.

    I mean, there’s still just shy of a month left in the season after the event ends if you don’t feel like grinding comp during ludicrous grenade weeks. That’s ample time to hit 2100 even if you haven’t done any games yet.

    I feel there are assumptions here about people's skill level that are not warranted. :P

    I apologize if I came off like a dick there, that wasn’t my intention. 3 weeks is probably cutting it pretty close.

    That said why the fuck isn't your mode rules handled server-side Bungie, get it together.

    Apparently the damage from Chromatic Fire scales according to the kill shot damage, which makes pairing it with Arbalest interesting. More testing to follow!

    Probably a contribution. But Gambit Prime uses Prime armor gameplay changes, but basic Gambit doesn't. Even when kerping the basic sandbox in place, custom rule modifications better be configurable when creating new content. Learn from your mistakes, Bungo.

    I don’t even mind the nade spam play in comp, if that’s what comp is then I’ll deal. But I do mind the switch up smack dab in the middle of the season. At least this one is not permanent.

    I can’t be expected to start experimenting in the middle of the season and try to figure out strategies of how to play, when trying out new things that don’t work out means losing a whole bunch of points that take tons of hours to recover.

    Three weeks is an awfully long time for the Crucible to be so weird, that's really what gets me. Are they going to run an Iron Banner with this nonsense happening? They'd almost have to, right?

    Given they've done specific modifications before it seems less like they couldn't do it and more like somehow no one anticipated this issue so the way the Revelry buff was implemented does not allow for them to just shut it off in one place. Not that they couldn't make that happen if they'd wanted to, they just would have had to design it that way from the start. Which they didn't. Because somehow they didn't see this coming.

    I imagine, given their apparent problems modifying individual guns from D1, there's some bad code design from way back in the day in there making some ways to implement this stuff more difficult then others. So they went with the easy way that can't be fixed on the fly. Because they somehow never anticipated that they'd need to.

  • Zombie GandhiZombie Gandhi Registered User regular
    I presume it may also be two different teams. One team (which knows better because they have been punched in the past) is off doing other work. The team that made this holiday content (both pitch and implementation) haven't felt that specific pain, so didn't think it would be so bad.

    One team is probably really cranky at another team but nothing to be done at this point but not make the same mistake next time.

    Reeeeeeally wish I had done the orbs in gambit last night for the triumph.

  • Zombie GandhiZombie Gandhi Registered User regular
    Guitar errors are too many object instance related, right? So the volume of extra orbs particularly in those activities is too much to handle?
    Are any Triumphs unable to be completed now, or is it just restricting the number of activities you can use to accomplish the goal?

    They're not touching the tonics at all. They're disabling the orb generation from precision kills.

    In wonderful news, the other day I got DDOSed by someone stupid enough to also send a message telling me they did it. Supposedly in retaliation because I DDOSed his team (didn’t happen, one of them disconnected, and managed to reconnect after I lost half my team), but it doesn’t matter, I got an actual written confession to a DDOS attack.

    My expectations for people with “General Lee” in their gamertags remain low.

    The relevant law is the CFAA which limits the criminality of such attacks to "protected computers". IANAL but I don't know if an Xbox qualifies based on my reading.

    A DDOS doesn't attack your console, it attacks your IP, which means it's attacking things that belong to your ISP which most definitely count as protected computers.

    Oh goody. With orbs disabled in gambit, If I want the triumph I have to get over 200 headshots to generate orbs, in this grenade-spam infested pvp

    If I’d had the time I’d have done it all in gambit earlier.

    How hard is it to hotfix this crap? We want tonics out of crucible and get told no. Free cores though, immediate hotfix. Screw up one of your triumphs, sorry guys we won’t hotfix this either instead play twelve times more pvp

    Boooooooooooooo

    2500 kills seems impossible with only two more sessions and I didn't even break 500 in the first one splitting time between D2 and other games. I am surprisingly disappointed by this.

    Took me most of my week’s play and a lot of frustration to do 500

    Not going to try for 2500 if it’s only this season. Pretty sure I wouldn’t make it

    EDIT: Oh boy. I'm getting guitared out of strikes too. So it's not just gambit and raids. So they should just re-enable it so I don't have to play a thousand crucible matches

    Arbalest does one shot to the body in an empowering rift or with inertia override, the person that told me it didn't was wrong. I know what I'm doing in the crucible soon!

    Yeah I think is exceedingly unlikely I will get it done. And so am less excited about Iron Banner than before.
    Time-exclusive content can be bad, and is even worse when combined with poor communication and and already gated period of participation. I will probably only get Wizened then stop IB entirely and enjoy other things rather than wind up hitting like 2200 and failing.

    Guitar errors?

    They kick you from an activity, and appear to be caused by too many objects being on the ground/spawned in?

    Which, you know, suddenly having everyone generated 3-4 orbs per headshot kill would probably cause.

    I'm only at 40/200 for gambit/crucible orbs made, and it seems to be inconsistent in counting headshot kills. This might be the first event triumph I don't complete if bungie doesn't do anything else about it.
