I just barely remembered to deactivate all my authenticators and now I am restoring to my new phone.

I upgraded my 4s to get all the updated apps - 4s on ios 8 doesn't seem too good...

So the black market dude allowed you to buy a strange coin with glimmer this morning. Then exploiters, as exploiters will do, realized if you switched characters you could get another one. Then create and delete characters if you have a slot available and you can do it over and over and over...

You can no longer buy a strange coin from the black market dude.

The average kill-death ratio for the raid was around 3-4  eek   And one guy had over 1,000 kills. 

281 deaths for the guy in the screenshot. Sounds like an evening of fun.

Guys are just banging their heads against the wall.  Some are talking about being up 12hrs straight trying to beat this   WOW

Also note that this is the normal version of the raid.  There's a hard mode.

Raid looks harrrrrd. From what I'm reading most of the streamers have given up partway to get better geared. Which makes sense, really. Raids have traditionally been progression content, not something you beat on the first try.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 15, 2014, 04:24:16 AM
Leveled up my faction and bought my first legendary piece. I'm just a hair short of 25. Wonder how long the grind to level 3 will be, although the black market trader was selling an exotic helmet this week anyway.

I'm really bad at the MP but I still like it a lot and keep trying to get better even though I complain a lot while playing. I even finished the sniper headshot bounty tonight.

I'm curious to see what they will be adding in the DLC to keep the progression going. I'm able to do the level 22 strike playlist with randoms so I will probably try the level 24 playlist next. I'm sure there are people that put in a lot more hours than me and will probably be trying the raid this week. It's not an MMO, but it has the progression model of an MMO and time to progress seems like it is going to be a lot shorter. That said, stuff like the nightfall strike is probably going to be really hard even for people at level 28, so perhaps the highest level stuff will slow things down a bit.

The scaling you're seeing Teg is the 'heroic' modifier.  Anything above the default applies this, so even if it's 10 levels below you, it will drop more elites.

Well yes, but I'd think that I should still be able to wipe the floor with an elite that is 5 levels below me. That's why I'm wondering if there is still damage scaling along with it?
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 12, 2014, 03:25:22 PM

Thought people would like this concise explanation of factions, since you may be wondering who those dudes in the city are:

Quote
Factions are represented by vendors in the Tower, and offer Legendary gear for use at Level 20. In order to buy gear from these factions, you must first represent them in the Crucible enough to get to Rank 2 Reputation with them.

How do I get Rep?

That's easy. You go to a faction, buy their Class Item for your class and then play PVP, do bounties, and do Strikes. You earn rep for each of these, as well as Patrol missions.

So, which faction do I pick?

This is the slightly more difficult part. When you pick a faction (assuming you don't want to go to the effort of achieving Rank 2 with every faction) you need to decide which two attributes you want to focus on. There are three.

Intellect: Intellect decreases the cooldown time of your Super, allowing you to use it more often.

Discipline: Discipline decreases the cooldown time of your grenades, allowing you to use them more often.

Strength: Strength reduces the cooldown time of your melee modifier, allowing you to use it more often.

The Faction combinations are as follows:

New Monarchy:INT/STR
Dead Orbit: DIS/STR
Future War Cult: INT/DIS

And that's it. Decide which of the three abilities affected by attributes you use the most and go with that.

As a side note, it's 315 Crucible Marks to get a full set of Faction gear.
Happy hunting, Guardians.

I don't expect to see a lot of people repping Dead Orbit. Who doesn't want their super on a shorter cooldown?

Looks like there's some rather ugly exploits out in the wild already:

http://kotaku.com/players-have-already-started-to-mod-destiny-1633772088

You know, I thought that being completely online would've prevented things like this.

Annoying, although I would be much more concerned if there were exploits to put you at max Vanguard/Crucible rank or item duplication hacks.

In other news, I hit 20 last night, woot. I am curious about the levels of story missions and if there is still scaling going on even if you are well above the story level. I've been playing story missions on hard because I have been well above the "normal" level and they have been quite challenging. Last night I played a mission on Venus where you have to hold off the Geth Vex while your ghost reads a computer and kept dying on the last wave of enemies because it dropped in like 4 shielded enemies who just teleport in the room after you. I tried it 5-6 times and finally decided to drop down to normal. I think hard was level 14(?) and I was level 19, so you'd think it would be no problem, but there were tons of enemies and they hit very hard. Normal, on the other hand, which was I think level 9, was a joke. I'll have to look it up.

Either no one is playing Titan or Titans don't PVP. I had a bounty to kill 25 Titans and it took FOREVER.

The swamp map is my favorite, and the Mars map is TERRIBLE for clash. Bunch of guys on bikes and everyone else hiding with sniper rifles. I suck pretty bad at PVP, but it has it's moments when you are not getting killed with shotguns over and over.

I came in not expecting to be interested.

I got interested.

Then they announced the price ($349) AND it requires an iPhone.

I got a less interested.

I am curious to your thought process on that. Android watches all require a phone, so requiring a phone was expected (and not sure all features do require it, fitness stuff for instance, but not sure). We knew the watch would be more expensive than the Android versions, and it is, just like the phones. Not outrageously more expensive either.

Not sure if I will preorder, but it looks good. I already wear a Fitbit, so this would be a cool replacement. Price point doesn't seem bad. Biggest fear is that because it's a 1st gen, we will see a huge upgrade in a year. Applepay with the watch could be awesome, and the fitness stuff looks good. Also like the idea of navigation on my watch.

I have no real knowledge of the smart watch space, this was my introduction.  I was not aware that other smart watches also require a phone nearby. In general that makes them a bit less attractive to me. I already have an iPhone, so that's not really an issue, but this basically makes the watch a phone accessory, not really a standalone product. As for price, it costs as much as the phone itself, yet relies on the phone for a lot of functionality.

As I said, I thought the functionality and design were very nice, I just don't know if I need it in my life at that price. I've got a while to read about it and see what other info comes out before release.

Cool, thanks naednek.  I had all the Grimoires but none of the other stuff. 

I don't even know wtf a Grimoire or Shader is in relation to Destiny, and I don't even know if I'll be buying the game, but I'll be damned if I won't enter any free code available!  smile

iirc Grimoire is like  an encyclopedia of all things Destiny universe.  You can read up on lore, backstory, etc.

Oh, well in that case it seems like a total waste.  First off I clearly don't care about Destiny enough to read about it, but even if I could I imagine anything you want is on the internet anyway so I'm not sure why you need an "in-game" code for it.

Keep in mind increasing your grimoire score will unlock "invaluable in-game benefits", whatever that is.

I guess this is the bit that is confusing to me

Quote
new continuity does not constitute a full reboot of the DC Universe but rather a "soft reboot". While many characters underwent a reboot or revamp, much of the DC Universe's history remained intact. Many major storylines such as "War of the Green Lanterns", "Batman: A Death in the Family" and Batman: The Killing Joke remain a part of the new continuity, while others have been lost in part or in whole.

So the comics assume you are familiar with certain things that happened in the past, but you have to figure out which things did or did not happen?
