omg only just found out that if you have 2 characters of the same type the second will have its weekly powerful gear drops reduced in power. A deliberate move by the developers but only confirmed recently.

This has really ****** me off as I just started a second Titan and put about 3 hours into it only to find out now I might as well delete it ffs

Well, you either like playing the same class or you were trying to gain an advantage.

This weekly maintenance is becoming a pain.

Well that saves me some time, was about to start going through with a 2nd character to try and get a higher level without such a rinse and repeat grind fest that the game has now become since hitting the 260-282 mark. Guess it may be time to get it traded in before the re-sale price drops too much

What like all those people grinding Public Events before finishing the campaign are trying to gain an advantage? If it wasn't a thing they shouldn't allow you to create a same class alt in the first place

You can still do it just make sure you choose a different character type. Careful you don't gain an unfair advantage though

I think I'm pretty much done until the DLC comes out. I might pop on occasionally for things like Xur and the odd strike, but there's no point in grinding when there are so many other games out or coming soon.

Haha, what like the jobless gits that can afford to bang in 12hrs a day on it to inch their way to the top?

It really does have some lame game mechanics imo, visually it looks great and plays like a dream, but a lot of the mechanics just make it an absolute chore to play. It offered a pleasant distraction for a few weeks, but I can't see me playing it for much longer. Normally multiplayer Pvp would keep me interested in a game but the crucible stuff is terrible!

That doesn't affect too much though does it and people grinding public events e.g. increasing the PvE population is not a bad thing but the loophole of starting a 2nd char of the same class, finishing the campaign and then transferring all weapons AND armor over to then start the exotic quests milestones for easy gear level increases. TBH they are doing you a favour by making it more attractive to experience all three classes. It is still much easier on the subsequent chars and you can at least transfer over weapons so it isn't too much of a grind for armor

£31 at CEX is very tempting.

I don't know. There is very little to do now but I might hang on to it as the end of year game line up isn't particularly exciting.

Patch notes say they've fixed an issue where some characters weren't receiving clan rewards from Hawthorne which is good as that happened to me last week. I got the clan reward for my titan but when I went with my hunter she had nothing for me.

Forgot the best part of the patch: Weekly call to arms (aka crucible camping) target score level reduced

Gotta love reset Tuesdays. In one hour at lunch I did flashpoint IO for a powerful engram and stumbled upon 2 legendaries, a bright and an exotic along the way, joined Dead Orbit and cashed in 40 tokens with him, cashed in 20 tokens on IO and unlocked the final part of my Sturm quest. Titan went from 294 to 297 and got an exotic auto at 303 and have made 55% of my weekly clan contribution. Repeat that with my hunter tonight and I'm looking at my first 300 character

Nameless Midnight is so much better than the MIDA Multi-Tool for me.

Well destiny managed to stiff me twice in the space of half an hour last night.

First, completed the Nightfall with 5:24 on the clock, got the final hit on the dude with the Wardcliff Coil but killed myself in the process. Teammate tried to resurrect me but it didn't work so he ran to the chest and then came back just as the final score popped up. Ratking challenge still says incomplete ffs.

Second, forced into competitive Crucible as the only "reward" option on my new Warlock got absolutely melted by a well organised team in the 2nd game. We were losing 5-0 and I was the last man standing against 4 with a crappy little submachine gun and an even worse sidearm. So I decided to have a point and a dance for the last 30 seconds waiting for the target to blow up. It kicked me for ******* inactivity ffs. How can I be inactive when I was clearly pressing the d-pad at least once every 5 or 10 seconds in a bid to keep myself awake??

New warlock is now at 272, almost ready to resume the campaign I reckon. Only having 2 locations to travel to is frustrating but I think I have enough of an advantage now to get some high rewards.
