In Topic: Destiny 2

Thanks for the confirmation Matty. I downloaded Fortnite at launch and it was locked behind a paywall. I'll try again!

Bungie fixed a lot of stuff in D2 in terms of the grind, but they screwed the pooch by taking the random rolls out of gear drops. I understand it from a balance perspective, but there's no incentive to continue playing for those ever-elusive god rolls.

 

Ironically, Iron Banner used to be far less grindy with known rewards, now it's RNG and less enjoyable.

 

I also don't like the oversimplification of D2 at large, but it does make it more accessible for my 7 y/o son. From that perspective, I'll happily play, but I don't feel the same desire to put in thousands of hours like I did in Destiny.

 

It's pretty evident most of the core Destiny players feel the same - Destiny was a top 10 game on Twitch for 3 years. Destiny 2 is out of the top 20 within a month. Bungie is damned if they do and damned if they don't - I suspect we'll see improvements in the expansion packs.

 

And yeah, the Duma is great for controlling D2 lobbies :)

 

I hope so, i had over 2000 hours on my hunter in D1, i didn't even play destiny this weekend. The game is crap.

I disagree with the weapons. everyone thinks mida is OP but you can compete with almost anything. it's all about map placement and teamwork. I've only been flawless 4 times in D2, so I'm no pvp god but can obviously hold my own.

 

I agree D2 is boring as hell, I've been playing Fortnite battle royale and having a ball. It's free and I highly recommend it.

Destiny 2 is supposed to be P2P right? I found mostly players in my area but then i got the infamous beaver error. Sure, i found lobbies with geo off in US (mostly with terrible connection), but whats the point of having the Duma if you cant even use its features? This is so frustrating, everytime i go into a gunfight i always lost! 

 

Netduma can't control Bungie's programming. I've been using the Netduma just fine, the beaver errors etc are happening with my friends who do not have Netduma, the servers are still a bit flaky - the game is only 6 weeks old.

Just did and nothing. Locked Brazil because is worst than US servers. This is getiting frustrating honestly.

 

I'm almost certain the game works off timezones, not geolocation. In Australia we get people +/- 3 hours east and west and people from japan, south korea and guam. which are almost 10000km away.

I'm in Australia and ended up disconnecting the duma about 3 weeks ago due to constant beaver errors from various padlocked NA hosts, just wasn't worth the trouble, even in PvE with 2 local players.

 

Dissapointing to see it's still the case, dominate lag? yeah nah.

 

I'm in Australia and it works flawlessly. I have the geofilter set to include melbourne, sydney, brisbane and adelaide, with it on i never get kiwi hosts or people from guam. Its a shame you didn't give it a go, with it setup properly its worth its weight in gold.
