That it doesn't exist outside of player made parties. You can't talk to your team in PvP or Strikes. You can't talk to any of the random people you encounter in the tower or when roaming.

Re: Destiny

For example you can't even tell the random idiots you get paired with to stop rushing the Devil in Devil's Lair.

Re: Destiny

can't you just R3 them and form a proper fireteam though?

also, I guess it may be different because of the extra 4 days - but lately I've had some amazing runs on the strike with randoms in hard mode (level 8 normal now). The strike on hard is the best place to farm top level usable guns, so tons of experienced players running that on PS4 now in pursuit of the best gear for Iron Banner PVP. Which btw starts up again in 5 minutes - http://www.bungie.net/7_The-Iron-Ban...News?aid=11959

Re: Destiny

The chat snaps on Xbone and takes up a third of your screen if you try that. Its also not something you can do quickly at the start of every PvP game.

Re: Destiny

It's pretty fun so far. Playing as a girl Hunter.

Still doesn't beat hanging out on the Normandy.

Re: Destiny

Good news everyone!! We get a new strike at 2pm on the moon tomorrow. Bungie also said that the 27th is no longer the stop date and the beta will go on as long as the want it to last.

Re: Destiny

I hope they just roll with the beta for like a month. Game is really good, just some kinks with PvP weapon balance.

Heads up, the gun guy is selling the Cydonia AR-3 right now. Get one.

Re: Destiny

That's pretty awesome that the Xbox and PS seem to be in sync for the gunsmith - I picked that up too, just to try it's different bonus (slower rof higher damage while aiming). The one I have already is "increase stability the longer it is fired", which is pretty decent I think.

Re: Destiny

Yeah for now.

Also don't buy that AR, that's a troll from bungie. The fire rate is nerfed, making it suck.

Only played to the first dark zone (?), really liking it. I think my hunter is only like lvl 2, haven't played any MP or figured a lot out, but can really tell I'll like it.

Looks like PvP is down for Xbone, PS3, and PS4 players. No idea about 360.

Re: Destiny

I've just finished my first session and although I'm just splashing around not quite sure what I'm doing myself and two other players just defeated a mission which ended with a big blue orb. It was pretty cool fighting with two randoms actually. I'm really liking this game from what I've seen so far.

Re: Destiny

Did the moon mission solo on hard, died a couple times to the moon wizard boss, was a decent if short mission. Then went back and explored for about 45 minutes - the map is absolutely huge! Found some really extensive creepy tunnel network and just kept going deeper and deeper. Sick game.

The Cydonia AR3 with slow down rof / increased damage is actually pretty awesome for PVE, though I still generally run the Jikogu SR3 then switch to a Shengen-E for Sepkis when grinding the strike.

Agree on the GOATish, really looking forward to 9/9 now
