PC, or PS4?
Just curious, and would like more details. Like what were you doing before you got banned? Playing a PvP Match?
On PC. And as far as I am aware I didn't do anything before I got banned, I logged in earlier in the day, don't think I even did anything more than sit in the hub area. The night before I raided with my clan only to log-in last night when we were supposed to finish to find I was banned, no reason given, not that there would be one to give.
As ‘Laser Tag' weekend comes to a close, we're making good on our promise to address the fact that Prometheus Lens is way too powerful. Sure it's fun, but it breaks the Crucible for anyone who wants to use a different weapon.
Given the short window we had to make an emergency fix, it will be adjusted to be way too weak. In January, this new Exotic will receive a proper, play-tested design pass.
Iron Banner will channel that old-school Crucible in the style of the Iron Lords. We've made a number of tweaks to the gameplay besides increasing team sizes to 6v6:
Match time limit is 12 minutes
Score limit is 125 points
Respawn time is 7 seconds
All control zones start off neutral
Control zones take slightly longer to capture by default
Additional Guardians (max of 3) in a zone increases capture speed
Guardians participating in a capture get more Super energy
Rumble will make its triumphant return, with no excuses, no complications, and absolutely no points for "assists". You get a single point when you get a kill, just like in the golden age of video games. Oh, and this time, we increased the player count to eight.
Mayhem is still Mayhem.
These three modes will share a central location on the Crucible Director page, and rotate weekly to keep things fresh. This Weekly Featured playlist will be home to gametypes that don’t necessarily fit into the existing Quickplay or Competitive playlists.
The Mode Formerly Known as "Doubles" is in its chrysalis, making a slow transition from what you played during Crimson Days to become a beautiful butterfly. We love the way it played in Crimson Days, but felt like we could take it further and give it more polish and flexibility. Once we lock that down, we'll release it into the Weekly Featured rotating playlist with the other fun stuff. For now, we are unsure of a release date, but we’ll add it the Road Map when we are more certain of when it will land.
There are, of course, other cool features coming in 1.1.4 that will make everyone's lives better (unless they're habitual quitters), and we'll be sure to talk more about them as launch day approaches.
Guess I'll grind out my ornaments this IB. Can't wait for the 27th, I really hope the changes are substantial. Not gonna get my hopes to high though.
I think this update is gonna be good. I just need to be able to play with it to form an opinion, of course. Just finished a couple PvP matches in D1 just for fun and honestly if they could capture the movement/fluidity of that again, I would start back getting excited for D2's future. Well, see ya on the 27th (Guess I'm only talking to Vertigo, does anybody even lurk this OT anymore lol)
If they're at rock bottom now and still won't implement matchmaking for ALL end game content then I don't think there's any hope to be had on that front. The real question is at present time is this as low as they can go? Things seem bleak but I don't think they're at rock bottom atm.I am so frustrated by this game. Still love the mechanics, but the macro elements are just so blah that none of my friends play anymore. Unbelievable to me that with the amount of hype, sales, resources, coverage, etc., we still don't have a game with more depth. And still no optional matchmaking for end game content. Considering how off putting the current system is, and that the end result is spending several minutes or longer to match up with randoms anyway, I'm at the point I just assume they are simply not competent enough to create a zone where people could talk and decide to match up in game.
Great question and I don't know the answer. Part of me says they have to be at rock bottom due to failed potential and other games siphoning off their players. But revenue wise they could be sitting ok still for all I know. Regardless, while I like some of the stuff in their pipeline, I don't see anything that makes the game feel like being in a clan matters or anything else for that matter to make the game feel deeper. Just more of the same dlc we've had for several years, and desperate attempts to win back their audience without actually addressing the elephant in the room, which is the game completely sucks if you don't have a team ready to go for endgame.If they're at rock bottom now and still won't implement matchmaking for ALL end game content then I don't think there's any hope to be had on that front.

Recently got back into some D2. Any suggestions on what to do as a filthy solo casual player? Have managed to get up to about 301 power level. Is that roughly where things are gonna slow down on that front from a solo perspective? I enjoy just messing around, and as a filthy casual, not interested in the Raid, etc (i know, i know). Maybe i should aim to get a set of armor? I haven't messed around with modding anything either. Or maybe it's just time to start a new character and play through again.
