    yeah, i was talking about Edge of Intent/Action/Concurrence. you get the first pattern from a fairly easy quest, the others drop randomly from Wellspring. (or so i’m told)

    Hawkmoon at xur is very good today. Though I have one with full bore and I’m not sure if that’s better or not.

    Woo, got collective obligation.

    It's not great! I think ideally it needs some way to randomly generate buffs for itself to absorb and/or ideally, it's catalyst should extend is empowered mode duration for landing head shots or a similar mechanic.

    Still is not the worst either and I'm happy it dropped after 20 something runs rather than my still unbeaten mythoclast record

    I have been uaing it in PVP. (I've done zero PVE since it dropped). I like it!

    People say the archetype in general is good, and you can forge a better Synco, but I find it just a generally feeling pulse. It just feels reliable like an old Bygones or Jian, which makes sense, but I've been in High Impact land since Arrivals, so it feels new to me.

    I think everyone agrees it need Something, either a rework or a catalyst, since we are in Void season and already feels like the perk is missing something. I think being extending the duration would be ok, but yeah, a way to generate charge either through multi kills or precision kills, or reduce how many shots.you need to generate charge would help. As it is, I know it is meant to be "use in a team!" but Rat King works solo, it only gets better with more.

    That said, maybe it is potent in a squad with it. But Match Game makes it unlikely in many cases to run both your class and your Energy slot also void on the whole team.

    Selfishly I want a Catalyst that makes it easier to proc and boosts some stat and then it'll become Meta and like Mytho I'll have already had a few hundred kills and people will call me a crutch using bastard.

    I think I got it last week or the week before last.

    So I just got back into Destiny here. Last time I played was during the Taken King and the Cabal Emperor raid, but apparently we have an alliance now.

    I have a vault full of that era legendaries. Are they worth leveling or should I be breaking them for shards?

    If you haven't played in that long it's likely literally all your legendary weapons are sunset. Probably the armour too.

    Of course, the Crucible generally doesn't care about things being sunset.

    Day is almost no full stacks and I tend to do really well. Night is all 1 sniper 2 stompee shotty hunters that fly in and embarrass you

    Gambit rep is just so fucked. Spent like 4 hours grinding at 5 streak last night and barely got 50% of a reset. I think I’m just going to abandon the ornament and suffer the trials and glory challenges instead.

    Compared to crucible and vanguard, gambit is just fundamentally fucked from a rep perspective.

    Soooo it took me way too long realize I can shoot two tethers with my super

    Then it took me waaaaay too long to realize I can change my super

    Then it took me waaaaaaaaaay too long to realize I had access to all void nades

    Le monarque with axion bolts is just ridiculous. Axion bolts feel a bit too good compared to other nades right now

    Brought a Control match where we were down 35-83 to a tie at time, then during overtime again fought to a standstill as everyone popped supers and we again tied with a capture in the last second.

    Yes, a win may have felt one way, but I feel double tie that then left a confused Shaxx when we had a huge deficit earlier in the match made for a fine ending to the tale.

    The heavy weapon slot should just be completely off in Gambit

    Or they could let you choose generic weapons that are strictly controlled. Like a rocket launcher that doesn't track, or a sword without a super powerful spin, or whatever.

    I saw a great suggestion somewhere that primeval gets less health back when the invader kill is done with heavy, and a lot more if they manage to get kills with a primary ammo weapon

  • ArteenArteen Adept ValeRegistered User regular
    Another suggestion I've heard is that a heavy weapon kill would immediately bring you back to your side.

    If you invade and immediately fire your rocket launcher towards the first opponent you see? Back to your side after a single kill. But if you invade, pick off three opponents with a sniper rifle, then fire your rocket launcher at the final opponent, you can get your four kills per invasion like normal.

    No idea what that means but it sounds like they are dust now. I got something to google now, cheers! If anything I guess ill have loads of shards.

    Anything from before season 10 (except exotics) can't be infused to a higher level anymore. So it's useless in almost anything but non-IB 6v6 crucible.

    Basically you can probably dust almost everything purple in your vault.

    And any exotic armors may be outdated, depending on when you got them and if you were playing after the switch to armor 2.0 which was before my time but I still hear people complain about it

    How about 0 health back from a heavy kill. But that still doesn’t change anything with the pre-Primeval part of Gambit and Gjallahorn being used 99% of the time

    So as the invader, you’ll try to line up a snipe and get instantly Gjally’d

    No, I really want a Gambit Labs with absolutely 0 heavy

    Felt pretty good about this last ditch attempt to stop bubble captures (as I've been on the losing side of this a bunch of times)


    These dudes had been bullying us the first two rounds, and afterwards we took it back with 4 straight round wins, and I felt like this was the moment the morale was truly broken.

    At this point in the season, "flawless pool" is no longer the "kiddie pool". It's still tough.

    The teams we fought on Saturday pre-pool were generally not much better than the teams we fought on Sunday, post-pool.

  • Zombie GandhiZombie Gandhi Registered User regular
    Yeah my plan for abusing the pool has failed the whole season. Seems like at this point it is more about time of day, which at night is generally rougher.

    That said, I more just want an ornament as the weapon roll chase has lost some luster recently, so it'll come in time.

    Same. I was thinking that, last night, that maybe doing it at 1 am eastern to 3 am eastern was a poor choice haha.

    Still, had a few good matches and even a few rounds where I was able to terrorize the enemy.....and then other rounds where I was a weight.

    So it goes.

    The Guardian Games 1550 nightfall playlist is fun. I like it a lot more than the normal match-made nightfalls. Also: a few people confirmed that nightfall-only catalysts have been dropping, so I now have a method that is somewhat enjoyable to try and get the last four I'm missing.

    I need to get over my stress about glory. Only a few weeks left! I’ve made steady 100-400 progress every time I hop on but I’m just so afraid of having a bad run I quit while I’m ahead and then am nervous to jump back in,

    Last night hopped on. Got destroyed the first round then carried my team to a 4-2 win (they both had negative eff) got my 100 glory for a 4 streak and then just stopped because I felt ridiculously stressed about that match.

    I’m actually playing really well and my win rate is 14-6 over my last 20 so I’m flying up but somehow it’s still the most anxiety inducing thing

    616610-1.png
  • ArteenArteen Adept ValeRegistered User regular
    Yeah, you just need to bunker down, grind out the playlist, and not fear losses. They'll happen. Just play through the loss streaks because you'll inevitably be back on a win streak at even higher glory.

    Near the end, I alternated between Survival and Control to calm my nerves.

  • Zombie GandhiZombie Gandhi Registered User regular
    I try to follow the "play lile 5-6 matches a session, but quit if two consecutive losses" method.

    I feel like it avoids loss spirals, but also means some decent progress. I also try to focus on playing during Trials time, as I optimisitcally believe the true murderers are in that mode.
