Can someone answer a quick question for me? I did not play much of Destiny 1 and I am on the fence with this, the Beta was ok and didn't love the PvP.

One deciding factor me, is there matchmaking for PvE? Or can I randomly meet up with people some how or do you have to do these with people on your friends list? I really don't play with many people anymore so being able to hook up with randoms or some kind of matchmaking will be important for me if I am to buy this......I am leaning towards yes since there is a good 2 months between this and Call of Duty.

The campaign you will likely do solo (likely, dont know for sure).

Strikes you will probably matchmake for.

Guided games (sort of lfg ingame) for normal raids.

NeoGaf for hard mode raid

you mount in the pike at the same time your super, and the super stay forever.

it seems a D1 glitch that got ported to D2. only affect open world activities and vehicle modes in pvp, that where super rare anyway.

They have to be buffing hunters for release right? Like everywhere is pretty much in universal agreement that they got the shaft here. That video is hilarious.

That hurt to watch lol

I like how Cayde destroys the Cabal with one shot kills with his Golden Gun but you can't do the same lol.

Jesus, it really is like Bungie forgot to include Hunters while developing D2. Their 3rd subclass, if it exists, better be ridiculous.

You're 10 LL below the enemies, there's no reason to express pain in watching that, when we know why they're not being one shot.

I do think it's a good sign that most people seem to be in agreement over what needs to improve for the final release, even if there is some debate over the severity of the issues. The feedback to Bungie is all mainly focused on a few things, should make it easier for them to target and address the key issues.

So liked the beta, but have some questions. Is there no cloak for hunter or revive for warlock anymore? Or are those abilities just not in the beta?
 
I liked what I played. I'll buy this.

Here are my complaints:

1. Where's the ammo? Why is my primary gun running out of ammo constantly and purples NEVER drop?!!?!?

2. Fusion rifles require purple ammo now... ugh. There goes my favorite gun. Sure, I could have one equipped, but with no ammo I might as well have a pillow in that slot.

Do all of them? The LL is definitely what's causing that in GG though.
Yeah sentinel shield and warlocks sword both one hit. I bet you're right but comparatively I think they need to buff it a bit. It should one hit, especially with how rare it was to get them (although they said that's changing)

Pretty sure they said ammo drop rates will be increased and they'll be adding specific enemies that'll always drop heavy ammo on top.

Edit:
They did, source.

It's probably tuned a bit differently since it's a ranged super that can basically kill from any where, and any situation. Bungie shouldn't have had the LL be 10 points higher anyways, but oh well.

It feels like anything that made life rough for Bungie balancing is gone.

 
LL may play a role but GG not one shotting while the other classes have 1 shot supers has to do with the spec in the tree. It gives more shots but those shots are weaker and the timer goes by faster.

The 3 shot GG will hit harder on each shot AND it can crit.

Power issues aside, gunslinger is boring as fuck. It's a no effort subclass with zero creativity. A good example of what Bungie could do is void warlock. Their devour skill group seems interesting and fun. You're eating your grenades to trigger health regen on kills which cools down your grenade and extend the effect. That's interesting and seems fun. Good job, Bungie. The choice between more and less golden gun shots is not interesting or fun. They completely phoned it in on gunslinger. Bad job, Bungie.

If you're going to remove class customization, at least put s modicum of effort into designing the classes.

Really hope they go all out with the crit damage on Golden gun in that skill tree.

It's already gonna be a monster for orb generation (I hope) but if it can do some serious boss DPS it would be amazing. Seems like the best DPS class as far as abilities go so far.

The first tree is underwhelming but the second one I think has the potential to be huge.

Well it needs to kill things first. Let's hope the other skill set hits harder.

It doesn't. The 3 abilities on the tree trigger on precision hits, not kills.

I think its, precision hits increase super charge rate, precision hits with golden gun generate orbs, precision hits with golden gun extend golden gun duration and power.

Remember in D1 when they buffed super damage in PVE across the board? Remember how happy everyone was? Supers need to feel at that level minimum, but I just don't see it happening.

How come it tells me to buy digitally to go to farm? I already bought it coupla weeks ago

Because you missed the boat to the farm. It was for only one hour yesterday at 10:00AM Pacific. The farm icon was bottom row far right. That middle icon is for pre-order. You will get to witness the farm and all of its soccer playing roof clambering high wire walking glory when it releases.

This is because we farmed Omnigul for hours, is not it?
 
Is it confirmed you can't download beta anymore? My bro wants to play with me but he can't find it on PS Store...


Anyway to get around this?

Had an engram drop in a pvp match called 'guided games engram' I wonder if this is something that pops after a certain length of time in d2 before you can use the guided games function...

Just ran a strike where a guy finished with 10 total kills and was generally just standing around doing nothing. They need a boot option so that shit doesn't happen.

Strike in the Beta also soes not let anyone else join if someone leaves. Me and a random finished it just the 2 after the 3rd random quit/crashed at the arena before the giant terraformer
