I'm absolutely loving it (no experience of the first one). Personally I don't understand the shader controversy, got my inventory full of them, never missed any. The crucible probably gets bad scores because of the lack of options, it would certainly do better if players could choose what they want to play lol. At least the game mode. I'd give it 8 atm and with small changes 9.

Nice to hear some positivity :-) I do understand a lot of the complaints, but I have high hopes for the Osiris DLC.

Hard to see why CA would revisit it if it weren't. Monthly concurrent peaks have been hovering around nine or ten thousand players for a year - that ain't bad.

Every time I get back into overwatch the reason I leave again is because of hanzo's scatter arrow, it's a one shot on both tanks and dps every 10 seconds (cool down), and I wound't even be salty if it actually took skill to hit, but losing to someone who missed 4 arrows and is on 10 hp and then scatter arrows and insta wins the fight just feels so bad.

Been in that situation many times too; it sucks. Seems Blizzard are talking about it though!

Destiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fastDestiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fast
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

That's probably not true; power levels are unlikely to change until the first DLC, which isn't due until December - well after the PC launch. Obviously we'll update this once Raid and Trials gear starts dropping, but that won't affect the earlier stages of progression.


Edit: turns out it hasn't affected any stage of progression, because raid set gear is no stronger than Powerful Gear. You can get to the 305 cap through weekly Milestones alone.

And i saw people with a 305 Handcannon and 296 Powerlvl overall already (on PC)... i have no idea how someone can have so much luck in one week.

The season pass is £29.99 / $34.99. The expansions aren't available individually yet, but we would guess £19.99 / $24.99 each, or something similar.

Ouch. Maybe worth waiting year or two and maybe you get most of released dlcs with the game. Similar to ESO.

This is probably a bit hasty in fairness. Yes, it crosses a qualitative line into microtransactions affecting gameplay, but unless the impact of these mods is massive - which I doubt, given their descriptions - I wouldn't call it 'pay-to-win'.

An advantage is an advantage - big or small. And if there's a way to pay to gain that advantage over others - then it's pay2win, or at least pay2advantage

All of them should be - that's how it was in the original, at least. It's the strikes that are specifically designed for co-op play, though.

Yeah, I played the beta so we did the firestrike thing. I was wondering since the only campaign mission wasn't coop (I'm guessing it's the first mission?) I was afraid that the coming missions wouldn't be either.

I'm a Bretonnian at heart, but I'm really enjoying my Norsca campaign - Wulfrik's army is unstoppable with the experience bonuses from the Hound. Can't wait to see how they interact with Archaon when he turns up!

I've always been a 40k fan myself (still hoping we don't need another 39,997 planned titles before they can get the IP to make it!), but Bretonnians was definitely my favourite DLC to have been made.


After Games Workshop killed off them, the Empire and humanity as a whole (replacing them with the ascended cult of Sigmar), it was awesome to see the knights return.


Archaon's arrival isn't a locked event, you can choose what you want to do. I won't get into specifics, but it's great fun no matter what you decide!
