FCC votes to abolish NFL blackout rule.  I think this is a great thing.

Does this mean they have to comply immediately?

On NPR they said they are still free to make deals with teams/broadcasters locally so it may just be put back in place that way. It's just not enforceable at the Federal level.

Is there a

Game is fun so far, but I hope there is some actual level design in there akin to the tombs in AC Brotherhood or the missions in Arkham City. If it's all "go to place in open world and kill stuff" I'll be kind of bummed.

Picked up 3 Crucible bounties - 5 Skirmish, 5 Salvage and win 3 crucible matches. At the end of 10 matches I was 1-9, and the one win happened within a few seconds of the start of that match when the opposing team dropped out.

Those modes can be so frustrating with no communication. And getting the heavy ammo is so important, especially in Salvage.

The 6- was comfortable in-pocket and in-hand, except for one handed use.  Browsing through some web pages and some system menus, it was immediately apparent that my thumb could no longer reach everywhere on the screen like it can on my 4s. 

So I'm left a bit torn between getting the 5s or the 6- this fall.  I guess I'll likely get the 6- and just get used to the different handling.

Something that I thought was a bug but turned out to be a feature is that a double tap (not press) of the home button pulls the page down so you can get to something out of reach.

I will admit I'm losing some of my passion for playing especially since my gearing has plateaued at 25.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.   Anyway, I like the game just wish loot dropped more frequently like D3

Are you leveling your faction rep? I think I bought pretty much my entire setup and got to 26 pretty fast. 27 is where it really slows down.

Also note that they nerfed engram drops after any hard wipe, which means that "we've woken the hive" no longer works either for farming.

I'm really annoyed by the Queen nerf.
1. There are a limited amount of runs you can earn per day (some of which are impossible to earn so far)
2. You have to earn those runs by doing things like 200 head shots to Fallen, which takes no small effort
3. Then you have to run the bounty

Isn't all that worth a freaking 2 ascended shards? Plus, it's only available for 2 weeks. They really want you to only be able to get 2 guaranteed shards or energy per day by doing the 28 heroic story? Your other option is to farm events.

The other thing that ticks me off is that they think not enough people are running strike playlists, when it's very obviously because the rewards don't match up to farming events. How about this? Figure out how long it takes on average to run a strike, then figure out how much you earn farming events for that period, and then match it up and add in a slight bonus. Scale it higher for higher difficulty, and you're done. Now more people will do strikes. This is not rocket science, Bungie!

Bat signal out:  I'd really love to do some Queen's Kill Order missions tonight if someone's up for helping me.  I was able to sneak in enough playtime yesterday to grind out three Queen bounties so I'm excited to get my first legendary equipment.

I also finally got my first exotic bounty yesterday.  I had my choice of the fusion rifle, the pulse rifle, and the machine gun.  I went with the MG since I don't care for fusion rifles and Hark seemed to hate the pulse rifle, but the first step of my bounty is to farm chests on Mars and I haven't even gotten to Venus in the storyline yet.   retard   

I'm happy to do some although I'm guessing you are playing late eastern time.

Oddly enough, i didn't.  I did get a ! on the Strike Playlist showing Level 24, though.  Anway, at least I know where it is.  I'm still confused why forgeforsaken has a 5th space for an icon on the map and I do not.  The icons are Queen, Crucible, Weekly Strike and Daily Story (can't remember the order) and then what is the other?
.

Queen's Wrath Bounty.    Just turn in one of her bounties and it will unlock Oh that should be Nightfall the 5th one

What is Nightfall?  How do you unlock that?  Is that a Strike?

Nightfall is the highest level strike - lvl 28 with a number of modifiers, the most punishing being that a team wipe means you have to start over entirely.

It just occurred to me that this game has built in powerlevelling for your other two classes.  Since equipment isn't soulbound, you can just set aside some hand-me-downs from your main and instantly level up your alts from 20 to a level almost as high as your main.

I guess they want the players to spend most of their time in the endgame 20+ content, but it still seems a little contrary for a treadmill levelling game to give such big treadmill shortcuts.

Isn't gear class specific?

Questions:

I'm now level 20. 

How do I join one of the crucible guilds? Visited one yesterday and there was no prompt

Where are the daily missions found?

In the crucible, when melee is fully charged is it a one hit kill?  (I'm a warlock)  I seem to go down alot even with fully charged shields from melee hits.

What does energy drain do practically in the MP?


I know this game is pretty divisive, but I'm really loving it.  Might get back to the story at some point too slywink>

You haven't been doing bounties? You can do those from like level 5.

You gain faction with a clan by buying their class item and wearing it while you play.

so the Queen's bounites equals

Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Handcannon
Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Scout Riflt
Collect items from Fallen
Run two strikes and kill specific mobs

So, after all this is done a special mission is supposed to open?

It looks like you have to earn a certain amount of queen's favor. I'm hoping they refresh tomorrow so I can ignore the headshot ones.
