Well I did PvP because it was a quick way to grind gear so I could continue the story, so I just did the quest stuff while I was there because why not? And it worked I’m now 487 and tracking down those guys in the new zone

Quickplay will give you gear just as well and you won't get bummed as much. That's all. Investing in a quest I don't see you persisting in so thought I'd give you a heads up. Playing ranked competitive in any FPS will be tough if you aren't a regular PvPer.

Otherwise carry on 👍

So yesterday I beat the new Destiny campaign which was pretty decent and have now hit the grind for equipment portion of the game. It used to be you logged in once a week did the weekly objectives that took about 3-4 hours for equipment and that was it. That is now the same but they have also retooled it a little bit where there appears to be daily challenges as well, but also they’ve put higher emphasis on bounties for powerful gear.

Bounties are like a mix of generic quests and challenges. You go to an NPC and they will have either “Go get X amount of kills here/using this/in this mode” or “Go kill this guy for me”. And I think if you’re a hardcore Destiny player this is probably a smart decision because it keeps people playing daily, it gives them more to do. But to me this is a massive undertaking that I don’t have the patience for.

Firstly because you have to fight through all kinds of loading screens to get to the NPC’s but also they all seem to have a mix of easy and difficult ones. So I need to do twenty of them so I’m flying to one planet, doing a couple easy ones. Flying to the next planet, etc, etc.

I didn’t even get off the first planet it was like “Get twenty grenade kills” I got 6 and gave up.

Unless there is a super efficient way of doing this I’m not sure I can stomach it. I’m all right doing the simple objectives like play 5 multiplayer matches and play 3 strikes and yada, yada. But any more than that is a big ask.

Take it from an MMO burnout, don't do daily gear treadmill shite. It's a time vampire with little payoff.

This will sound odd and I can’t explain it but Destiny 2 feels like the most modern game ever. And I don’t mean good, but like. I don’t want to say I feel younger when I play it, but I feel like I’m playing a game that younger people play I gues and I can’t really describe it but it’s nice sometimes. Like, oh, I’m not completely out of touch with everything else. Just mostly

I fucking hate the multiplayer in this game. On average my K/D is 1.5 or higher in quick play, with every now and then just having and off match and getting my shit pushed in. And yet I’m always on the losing team. I would love to know my total K/D bs total W/L

I mean, yeah. Like I’m bad at PvP for sure, but the last few times I’ve done PvP I feel like I’ve done really well and yet the team I’m on always gets fucking trounced. The highest I’ve got on this 5 win streak since the expansion is 2.

The first game I played today it ended with one of those “We’re breaking up the match to find better suited teams”

Yuck I hate the PvP in this.

I used to hate that "We're breaking up the matchmaking to find a better team" thing. Aye, it never did that when I was getting my arse fucked. I could play 10 games and I'd be still put against the same team to get my ring split. As soon as I'm balls deep in another team it's throwing down a mercy rule and finding someone else to **** me. Otherwise just keep letting the other team cumming in my ass and on my face, because **** me, right?

I'm messing.

But yeah it's harsh on your own. Unless your good enough to carry a bit being on your own your left pairing with the dribs n drabs.

I don't mind Quickplay as I tend to do alright. Skill based match making isn't as strong there so you're going to get a mixed bag. Some you stomp, some you get stomped. Competitive will actively **** you tho. All sweaty games in there.

Will you help me do gambit matches this week? I’ve never done them and I’m only 511.

EDIT: Also Iron Banner stuff.
