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.

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.

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.

Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals S11: Iron Banner Misery

In the last few weeks, there’s been a dearth of content in Destiny 2. I’ve been playing less. I’ve been playing Ghost of Tsushima. There’s not much going on to be honest. I’m still farming for a god roll Ikelos SMG as well as a Falling Guillotine. They haven’t dropped yet, even though I’ve turned in hundreds of umbrals.

Destiny 2 Season of the Arrivals: The Good, The Bad & Sunsetting

Guardian Games in Season of the Bounties: Grindy Grind Grind Grind

This season in Destiny 2 has turned into a bounty grind that has led many players to playing fatigue, ie getting bored out of their minds while playing this repetitive BS. I’m no stranger to this, as I took a break during S9 due the grind in S8 (Randy’s, Exit Strategy, etc).

It’s actually become bad enough for Bungie to address the situation in their TWAB. They are planning on changing from a seasonal model to something more akin with how the game was when Forsaken came out. I couldn’t be happier. But will it be enough? The plans are for Y4, and that’s still far away.
