hopefully its just rumor. It was direct from bungie so it could be absolutely nothing.

journalists have twisted their words before, it's not past them to try and swoon the community amidst its current state.

Edit: I see your edit that you had noticed my edit.

Looking forward to it. I'm going to try Hunter in IB for the first time. Also, you PS users suck because you get the chainmail cloak.

I was practicing last night. I like it. I don't like the groups that don't want to play the objective. When stats are showing only you or only one person going for the spark, either try harder or get another group. Yeesh.

You get a lot of points for picking it up, I can't see why you shouldn't grab it. I love slam dunking and everyone nearby being vaporized by the explosion.

Dukie, there have been delays getting to the post office and it's all my fault. I haven't forgotten about you.

Pro-tip: turning around and going backwards into the rift lets you do a backflip, and gives you bonus points for style!

Had a great group going with Blaze and company for a while, I'm already rank 2 and have the weekly bounties done aside from the rank 4 requirement. That cloak will be mine. Couldn't care less about the fusion rifle, but I'd like to grab the chestpiece and scout rifle too.

It's a refreshing change of pace from control, that's for sure. Im enjoying it. Matches seem to go a little quicker, and there is LOTS of action. Control can get sort of slow every now and again. And achieving victory via mercy rule is very satisfying.

So... after nearly a year of boycotting Bungie and Destiny, some local friends who recently purchased TTK (cuz they were smart enough to avoid the vanilla) offered to buy me a copy of TTK. Presumably, so i can 1. play with them and sherpa older stuff, and 2. so i can shut the hell up about it.

Do this. Join us. We rage as a family.

I'm about to set my ps4 on fire. Who thought capacitive buttons was a good idea on a console that has fluctuating temperatures? If the recents models do have mechanical buttons like the later gen ps3's I'm gonna have to pick one up. The cost of a repair is almost a new console.
