The Sweatiest Iron Banner Because I Forgot to Select Freelance

IB is around again, and I’m actually playing this time around. There are 4 “easy” pinnacle bounties to grab per character, and they’re +2 pinnacles, so your LL will go up. For some reason (I must have been tired), I played regular queue for at least an hour.

The State of Trials of Osiris In Season of the Chosen (Destiny 2 S13)

Trials has always been an issue with the D2 community. There’s this meme of how they wanted to ship trials right. Instead, we got a playlist populated by cheaters and account recoveries, also ultra sweat lords.

Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen S13 Way Better than S12

I actually started playing the new season of Destiny 2 last week. I tend to take a break between January and March. It didn’t help that Season of the Hunt was pretty bad. I logged on on the last day to get the Warden title, checked out the beginning of the season, then didn’t play until last week. I hadn’t realized that you could still get that title in the following season. That’s cool.

Cyberbug 2077: The Most Disappointing Game of 2020 (Cyberpunk 2077)

Like many fans of CD Project Red, I preordered Cyberpunk 2077 a while ago. It must have been August. I was getting hyped for the release. The PR machine made it sound like an impressive RPG, putting The Witcher to shame. Amidst delays over delays, the game finally launched on December 10th 2020, and was met with utter disdain over its incomplete state.

Iron Pain: The Iron Banner Experience with no SBMM Destiny 2 S12

Since S11, SBMM in Destiny 2 has been limited to comp and elimination in order to lower queue times. This made a lot of PvP mains happy because they get to stomp lower skilled players. But how much fun is it?

Destiny 2 Beyond Light: Deep Stone Crypt Raid S12

While I wasn’t really ready to raid on day 1 of the release of the raid, 11/21, although I was close to 1230 light, I kept at it all week to make sure that I was near or on the hard cap before making any attempt. I had scheduled it for Saturday with a couple of mates.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light Impressions & Grind

The new Destiny 2 expansion launched on November 10th. It introduced a “new” element called Stasis. It came after an extended season, s12 Arrivals, and after a long content drought. Did it live up to the hype and expectations? Read on to find out more.

Festival of the Lost 2020: We Made Your Least Fave Even More Grindy (Destiny 2 S11)

With Beyond Light delayed until November, we got another year of the Haunted Infinite Forest, which is basically a cut and paste event from the last few years. Good or bad? Probably average. But what I didn’t expect was for this to become even more grindy, thanks to having to farm Cipher Decoders in order to open 45 chests in at least 9 complete runs of the Haunted Forest.

That Time I Spent Raiding Last Wish All Night and Got 2000 Voices (Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals S11)

About a month or two ago, I joined a new Destiny 2 clan. To say that the clans I’ve been in were somewhat lackluster (IMO) is an understatement. When you put a bunch of strangers together, you can end up with some strange drama. Believe me, I know. I used to run a Division 2 clan, which imploded.

Solstice Pain: The Grind On All 3 Characters (Not So Bad TBH) Destiny 2 S11 2020

It’s been a weird couple of weeks. There’s not much going on to be honest, and there was plenty of time to get the solstice grind started without any problems. I am still scarred by the fact that I grinded out last year’s on one character, only to immediately delete it come Shadowkeep. That was nasty.
