Nigouki: rip video
neisan2112: Perfect intro, nothing wrong
Riiiiiiis: as is tradidtion
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
TehAmelie: heya
PixelArtDragon: Hey look, it's what happened to my attempt at writing custom streaming code at work today
Foxmar320: Hello Cam
TheAinMAP: Hello.
Spades_Slicc: Are the lights a necessity? Seems unpleasant
GhostofJeffGoldblum: did Cam say "welcome to fuckington" or is my hearing that bad
TheMerricat: LOL
GhostofJeffGoldblum: No it's probably me, my hearing is bad.
Foxmar320: :D
DiamondMX: New Show Name now.
PixelArtDragon: So, Vandaddy got some more backstory, huh
Spades_Slicc: We could call this stream Fuckington if we wanted to
Anubis169: Greetings everybody!
Foxmar320: Talking Sim got a name change :P
TheMerricat: Fuckington is Let's Nope chat. :P
bigpuppystuart: The canadian accent is near impenetrable
Pywodwagon: @GhostofJeffGoldblum listen we all know you are bad at words today (boom roasted)
Riiiiiiis: comunucation requires both a sender and a receiver
Foxmar320: I think G would have opinions
GhostofJeffGoldblum: @GhostofJeffGoldblum RIP
TheMerricat: Eh?
Anubis169: I got good news. I made a desktop replacement from a raspberry pi and it's running IRC, Twitch, the stream dumper, firefox... all using the power of a clock radio <3
bigpuppystuart: What is cam saying, is that Elvish?
Juliamon: sucks to be Youtube rn, trying to understand what's being discussed
LordChrusher: Good, having a late dinner
TheMerricat: @Anubis169 WOOT!
Foxmar320: Have you dove into Arc 3.0 on Warlock?
TheMerricat: @Anubis169 Now how the heck did you find a Pi in this age?
Spades_Slicc: You don't ever need to go right
SnackPak_: D's in chat
Pywodwagon: @GhostofJeffGoldblum this is funny to the 3 people here who follow the wiggins wordle channel
DiamondMX: Three lefts is a right
Anubis169: I went to the physical store
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Ey up 'Gov. 'Ow's game?
Nigouki: home keyboard can no longer give the D?
Piratical_tendancies: lrrEFF
GhostofJeffGoldblum: @GhostofJeffGoldblum mattlrDed
Anubis169: they keep a stock back for walk-ins
PixelArtDragon: Map all of WASD one key to the right, so you get ESDF?
Foxmar320: Yeah switch to controller from keyboard or vice versa feels off
Anubis169: just waltzed over and picked up an 8gb version off the shelf :D
Foxmar320: Like I can't play Destiny on keyboard at all
TehAmelie: Rare pretty much gave up after Goldeneye
Spades_Slicc: @PixelArtDragon Ah, the Dark Souls 1 PC camera controls
DiamondMX: @PixelArtDragon That still uses D. Mapping one key down might work though
accountmadeforants: @Anubis169 Oh damn, right! That's in the UK. Lucky!
TheMerricat: @Anubis169 So jealous! :D

PixelArtDragon: @PixelArtDragon Oh wait, yeah.
Juliamon: Wow, fast shipping from China
bigpuppystuart: FPSs are just tastier on keyboards and mouse
PixelArtDragon: So shift everything to TFGH
Foxmar320: Oh it's a good season
Spades_Slicc: @PixelArtDragon Oh I didn't actually read the result, I thought you meant mirror
Anubis169: TheMerricat: It has nothing at all to do with the fact that i did some maths and it costs £68/month to keep the super-powered rig on all the time
Riiiiiiis: we can get things from China sent to the EU in 2-3 days - but it costs
Primcrane7081: oh good, season of the trauma
Anubis169: 'cause it uses 1kWh every 4h
Foxmar320: Zavalla's story made me want to cry
Spades_Slicc: AH! Zombie!
TK421WasTaken: Lots of good content to work through there. Excellent season.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Oh, hi Crow, didn't see you there.
airddragon: Season of the haunted was awesome. It is kind of the reason that the season for pirates is feeling a bit flat as haunted will be a hard story track to follow.
PixelArtDragon: I wish my computer didn't get to "too potato for Destiny" right for this year's content
Spades_Slicc: Is the force raising you from the dead named Neow?

kristian_fischer: Work first, then Banan.
SnackPak_: get those IB drops
kristian_fischer: Hi, Cameron.
Foxmar320: Well if you want company hit me up lol
PixelArtDragon: Crow's not NOT a bastard, but he's a loveable bastard instead of a "wow, what an asshole" bastard
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Afternoon Cameron
LordChrusher: I need to Iron Banner
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh shit Destiny time!?
EvilBadman: Going all gold shader for September?
Spades_Slicc: Are you?
Foxmar320: Also don't forget Dares weapons can now be crafted so Dares grind is real
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: hell yes what are we up to
Foxmar320: Oh yeah those are hot trash
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: rip
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: damn you were going to be my background noise while I documented this code but now I have to pay attention
bigpuppystuart: i just the warlock jump is improved in the future. * Cue audience laughter*
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: love Osmiomancyyy
Foxmar320: Osmio gloves are great with turrets
v_nome: Do you have any advice for somebody that hasn't really played before if they wanted to try this game?
TheMerricat: @v_nome hold tightly onto your wallet.
niccus: there's free trial, jump into it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: You don’t necessarily need max discipline with Osmio since it also returns grenade energy on freezy
Primcrane7081: @bigpuppystuart it's already good, just takes some getting used to
PixelArtDragon: @v_nome Check out the Destiny channel on the LRR discord server because Destiny is much better with other people
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: And since Os coldsnaps have 2 seekers you get more freezy per freeze
LordChrusher: But it is still a lot of fun by yourself
Foxmar320: Yeah the Destiny channel in Discord is a great place to find help with things
Solangel777: The new exotic auto rifle from the Lightfall Preorder
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Craft the new AR and LFR if you can
Solangel777: that gun is nice
BrowneePoints: oh yea the Lightfall pre order auto is super fun
Foxmar320: The new Warlock helm slaps hard
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: You’ll get quests from the Relic Forge for them
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh hey, Cam and I use the same emblem
niccus: turn your demons into guns
GhostofJeffGoldblum: It's a great emblem
Foxmar320: Drifter still the only dude with a beard in the game
Foxmar320: My Exo wants a beard Bungie!
BrowneePoints: and the new craftable LFR Taipan can be made with Triple Tap/Firing Line as well
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: to be fair solid hints Misraaks and Spider have a somewhat traumatic past and Misraaks used to be uh not a great guy
TK421WasTaken: Drifter best NPC send tweet. We love Todd
Solangel777: Lets be fair. The pirate season is the after care of dealing with trauma
PixelArtDragon: Oh wow, Saladin got a better spot in the Tower
LordChrusher: though it looks like we are going to get some good story with this season
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: So we will not be entirely without trauma and confronting the past
Solangel777: drifter knows how to help with trauma
Primcrane7081: @TK421WasTaken eido eido eido eido
airddragon: I described Season of Plunder to a friend as the anime filler season. Just out of nowhere, pirates!
Ogrekidd: Drifter is not interested in your trauma he cant eat trauma
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Check DIM/ they have perk lists
Solangel777: @Ogrekidd He just hasnt tried yet
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: And yes Riiswalker rolls Iron Reach it’s the chase PvP roll
PixelArtDragon: @airddragon Ships are to beach episodes as spaceships are to space beach episodes
TheAinMAP: guyjudgeRaid guyjudgeRaid guyjudgeRaid BEAVER RAID guyjudgeRaid guyjudgeRaid guyjudgeRaid
niccus: is it ok to go with the drifter? don't we need a chaperone
nymistrya: I do love how the seasonal model has really just been crazy whiplash. like hey I killed a god but I need help my friends with their trauma oh but im a pirate now and hey wait I need to fix time to bring my grumpy grandpas boyfriend back to life.

flapjacksofwar: Wish me luck to get a Malice in my upcoming Kings Fall!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, flapjacksofwar! (Today's storm count: 25)
Foxmar320: So might as well
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Posterity
bigpuppystuart: I wonder if any gaurdian finds out that their past was just uneventful. "I was an accountant...hmmm. Maybe i can fight a calculator."
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: JQK?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh right duh Cantata
Foxmar320: lol
CanPlayGames: Best Mod
flapjacksofwar: {erfect
Foxmar320: I still don't have Heartshadow
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @tk421wastaken you take that back one day my boy will come back to the war, best NPC
Foxmar320: Ive had terrible luck getting exotics
EvilBadman: Bungie needs to move sweaty confetti to like a cosmetic mod slot
flapjacksofwar: Ashens will never have it at this rate
BrowneePoints: wishender is apparently doing great this it wishender?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @foxmar320 me neither
airddragon: @airddragon The real question now is what character is going to show up in an awkward outfit.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Ashen is at 69 Duality runs with no Heartshadow I think
TK421WasTaken: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou Which one, the thumb drive? :p
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The bucket of thumb drives yeah
Foxmar320: Thunderlord :P
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: And an engram! And an Atari.
flapjacksofwar: Thunderlord
TK421WasTaken: Ashen Georg is an outlier and should not be considered
BrowneePoints: I got Heartshadow my first Duality run last season, and I was in there WITH Ashen lol
flapjacksofwar: maybe?
Foxmar320: It's so good
flapjacksofwar: Lets see if Ashens or I can snag a Touch of Malice first
flapjacksofwar: Maybe I can port mine over from D1
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: definitely not any Arc machine guns of really unreasonable range accuracy and even collateral dmaafe
BrowneePoints: Also, all the seasonal weapons are, pretty darn tasty this season
bigpuppystuart: "if i only had a tesla coil." Cam 2022
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: damage that was damage…I’m typing on my phone
Rourke9: So tragic when grenade launchers were disabled that one week
Foxmar320: At least 2
SocraticMethod: Fun fact: The thunderlord AOE can cause the overload ability debuff to hit yourself
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: to be fair we do have a Tesla coil but it’s classed as a rocket launcher
BrowneePoints: I think the seasonal slug shotty is one of my fave feeling weapons in the game atm
Piratical_tendancies: 1 1/2
Gekyouryuu: how many? enough.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The blunderbuss shotty is legit good
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Welcome to Talking Simulator where we talk about how our teammates are merely a simulation of a team, suggestive of the real thing but in no way impactful.
PixelArtDragon: Isn't it skills-based matchmaking now? Does that change it?
Foxmar320: Im goign to say 2 AFK, 1 sweat lord, 2 average players and you.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: and I hate shotguns
TheMerricat: Was nice!
Nigouki: ICREAM
TK421WasTaken: SBMM only applies to Control in the main playlist right now
Foxmar320: Made me want ice cream
TheAinMAP: Yes!
airddragon: Yup.
BrowneePoints: Yes I did! I also saw your photos on twitter and they are gorgeous Cam!
DEATHlikescats: It was really fun
Nigouki: it was a very fun stream
Rboy634: Yes indeedy
han_cholo55: it was very nice to hangout for the adventure last night
airddragon: Well soft sbmm
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh dang I didn’t know there was ice cream I gotta watch thus
Spades_Slicc: Yeah the I-Stream was fun
Rourke9: Yea! Control is fun now!!
BrowneePoints: What was the Red flower on your tweet if I may ask Cam?
Gekyouryuu: I was having family dinner for labor day
TheAinMAP: I hoped you enjoyed your ice cream.
DEATHlikescats: I hope y’all do a Halloween one
SocraticMethod: The new game mode is either swingiest or most one-sided game, there is no middle ground
bigpuppystuart: it was too hot to exist last night, so i missed it, because i was not existing
GhostofJeffGoldblum: baby gear doo doo doo doo doo doo
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: or they are a baby
Juliamon: It was a lovely stream, highly recommend the vod to anyone who missed it
SocraticMethod: Only for Control (vanilla)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Epic Game Store, lots of New Lights right now
Foxmar320: Also everyone remember to Dress in Gold for September. Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Rourke9: this season is so fun
CataclysmicReverb: If your ice cream flows enough that it's a stream, it might just be cream
Rourke9: Pirates!!
airddragon: I think next time everyone should be required to order a screamer. Just because.
Watson87: unfortunately sbmm is active in Control, but not Iron Banner
GhostofJeffGoldblum: @Foxmar320 ...the color, or to clothe myself only in fine gold lame?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: because the second one may be an issue
Foxmar320: The color in Destiny. Gold shaders
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I was giving an EGS new light the rundown and noted I could also answer lore questions as long as they didn’t mind hearing about Rasputin and they said “Why is Rasputin in Destiny?” and I nearly vibrated out of this dimension.
DEATHlikescats: Ain’t nobody surviving that
Rboy634: This season is a good chill season just enjoy some pirate shenanigans and massive amounts of AoE. Arc 3.0 might be my favorite crayon this expansion
Rourke9: Really loving everyone's gold fashon <3
Foxmar320: It's a community driven goal to spread awarness
bigpuppystuart: Don't worry Cam, you are still way better than i am at this
PixelArtDragon: Right, I forgot how much Twitch's compression hates Destiny
josh___something: Mayhem with extra steps
Foxmar320: This is a new game mode I have no idea what the rule is
Rboy634: You get supercharged for killstreaks but everyone sees you
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh I haven’t seen the new mode
josh___something: more kill streaks = more ability energe
Rourke9: if a person is on a kill streak 3+ they gain the hunt for their team
Gekyouryuu: cam, you're still a surgeon. ... you just get charged with malpractice is all. >.>
Rourke9: and they have to kill at least once every 15 seconds or they die
josh___something: 5 kill streaks show you on the map, and straps a bomb to you
Rourke9: and they are visible for everyone and you get more points for killing them
josh___something: Once you hit 5 they give the enemies wallhacks to you
josh___something: So, it's actually hard to get to more than 6
Foxmar320: Mercy :(
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: seems if you hit 5 you also have to keep killing or die. Interesting.
Rboy634: Oh yeah I forgot.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: I can say confidently that something happened just now.
josh___something: (and also again, it straps a 15s bomb to the 5 kill streak holder)
Rboy634: Once you get 5 kills you either keep killing or you explode
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Yeah if they explained the new mode beforehand I did not notice…didn’t even know there was a new mode.
Rourke9: I like the idea that Psion interns go up to Saladin like "hey, I have a GREAT idea for a game mode" and he's like "Fine, lets run it"
Foxmar320: Yep because no one ever played objectives
josh___something: I mean, rift was a pure obj gamemode
Foxmar320: Even in Rift
Rourke9: they might do objectives again in the future? they just want to change things up seems like
josh___something: no one playing obj meant I got all the dunks :P
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Sadly the control points are gone which means I can no longer contribute to my team even a little =\
bigpuppystuart: When i played, all the powers were being updated so i could never figure out how sub classes would play. Maybe i should give it another go.
airddragon: Yeah spark just ended up being the other team steam rolling you to right before the win and then farming you for kills. Never in between.
josh___something: Esp with blinklock
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I am a strict detriment to my side
han_cholo55: Objectives were just where you hung out to farm kills in other game modes lmao
Rboy634: @bigpuppystuart Now is definitely a good time. All the subclasses are now updated and good to go
Watson87: @josh__something yeah, and the pvp playerbase did not like rift
Gekyouryuu: "it's weird. the objective is always "get kills", but they keep spelling it weird."
josh___something: The reception was poor, but I LOVE RIFT
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I liked Rift but I usually like the opposite of whatever the PvP players like
josh___something: It's such a fun mode for me
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I could actually help in Rift
Rboy634: Rift definitely got better after the mercy changes.
Rboy634: After that I enjoyed it alot.
BrowneePoints: I hated Football
bigpuppystuart: Well not enough diskspace. so nevermind, i wont be picking it up now
josh___something: assists also count for kill streaks... so play with your team to leech super energy off their kills :p
Foxmar320: We got fridged

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @bigpuppystuart ah yes there’s uh…there’s an ongoing thing about the size of the game.
josh___something: I... don't know
bigpuppystuart: at least it isnt as big as ESO...
bigpuppystuart: which is also something i gave up for disk space
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh Cameron they fixed Arclock resilience so you are no longer tissue paper
josh___something: destiny is a chonky lad
Juliamon: my sister has a dedicated hard drive for ESO lmao
Rourke9: you've been doing great!
bigpuppystuart: your sister was wise
Dog_of_Myth: Hiya everyone
Foxmar320: Arc warlock is so much fun. Just blink melee everything into oblivion
josh___something: to be fair, they supered so they wouldn't blow up
josh___something: @Foxmar320 I love how it's good in PvP too

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Teakasaurus_rex! (Today's storm count: 27)
josh___something: kill streaks give you like 20% super energy after 1 kill
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Destiny is a chonker and a few years back Bungie went to “vaulting” of older content saying it would rotate back in, which I thought was a good idea, but other people complained that they were losing content they paid for, and it sounds like expansion content won’t be vaulted going forward. Seasonal content seems to still be fair game.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I liked content vaulting because it meant narratively the world was allowed to change a lot more
bigpuppystuart: I hope they find one. Cause i liked my time with the game
Rourke9: and game size is only one of many technical hurdles to bringing back/keeping all that content
josh___something: Vortex... I think?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I know at least some of the content vaulting was to remove sections incompatible with the major overhauls they did on the backend to scripting etc
Foxmar320: Slova will get there eventually
PixelArtDragon: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I very much appreciate the "we need to be able to make changes to the engine without breaking things from 5 years ago". I have a good feeling they'll be adding a lot of stuff back eventually
josh___something: Not-so-Slowva bomb since the speed increase :P
Rboy634: Cata works pretty great. Especially with all the Arc blinking
josh___something: it also tracks :P
Rourke9: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou yea, to bring stuff back they would likely have to essentially remake everything
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Honestly I don’t really want the old content back except maybe EP. At least not without narrative justification? I liked having the flexibility for serious stuff to actually happen and change the status quo.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: It's a tough problem to solve.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Leviathan going away and coming back all fucked up was really cool for instance
GhostofJeffGoldblum: There are lots of people who have a visceral reaction to there being "less game," even if it isn't especially relevant game stuff.
PixelArtDragon: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou EP?
Watson87: Escalation Protocol I assume
Rboy634: Aim trouble is the big reason I cant use hand cannons lol
Cptasparagus: are sidearms still bad? I liked them a lot
Foxmar320: Sidearms are good
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @pixelartdragon Escalation Protocol, Destiny’s first and still best Horde Mode. Rasputin wants you to kill things for science and he’ll pay you in guns to do it.
Rboy634: @Cptasparagus They are a more niche pick these days. Some folks swear by them.
josh___something: Sidearms are good
PixelArtDragon: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Oh right, I remember that from when I started playing right after Forsaken came out
Cptasparagus: everyone used to give me crap for bringing a trespasser
josh___something: It fills the same roll SMGs have of "The second primary" if you're using a scout rifle
Cptasparagus: gotcha
Rourke9: nice shot!
josh___something: Well that was a quick hunt XD
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s possible I am somewhat biased in that I hold the LRR server record for most EP clears
GhostofJeffGoldblum: "Now you are the wolf, finish the hunt! The hunt has ended." Oh okay, thanks Saladin.
Pywodwagon: fully excited for the panic that will come with the first time Cam gets a 5 streak
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: someone finished the hunt I guess
Rboy634: Is... Is Uncle Sal ok?
bigpuppystuart: "Let the wolf up on the couch."
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Salad Dan hasn't been okay in awhile.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @rboy634 story of my life I cannot use hand cannons at all and am always murdered in PvP because of thag
josh___something: Old saladman is not ever okay, to be honest
Rourke9: have you done the seasonal story stuff?
josh___something: The ammo changes were rough on GLs
josh___something: Only getting one per brick hurts
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron do you have a Lingering Dread from Duality yet? Didn’t we get you one? It’s no faster but the grenades are so bouncy it gets very funny.
josh___something: I really need to craft a Pardon our dust

josh___something: Spark of resistance?!
josh___something: I think they barely lived because 2 people were near them
Rboy634: Connections have been a bit off with Skillbased Matchmaking from what I have seen
josh___something: SBMM is only in control RN
Rboy634: Oh yeah your right
Rboy634: Nvm to my previous statement
josh___something: (and glory, but haahahahaaha no one cares about glory)
GhostofJeffGoldblum: the Nova Bomb had to return to its home planet
Rourke9: i think you blew yourself up?
niccus: it no va
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Nova Bomb is…a bit of a free spirit, sometimes.
josh___something: It clipped the ceiling and decided it no longer wanted to exist
PixelArtDragon: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou A bit of a void soul, if you will?
Foxmar320: That Smart Fridge is full of death
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @pixelartdragon no Stan the friendly black hole is pretty good at going where I tell it
Rourke9: I wish the grenades did more, yea :(
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think they changed the damage radius in PvP
Foxmar320: 1 point difference
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I could be imagining that though. They did a lot of PvP changes for special ammo weapons.
Rboy634: GL's seem to still have to pay for Mountain Top's Sins it seems lol
VillageFlipper: absolutely reeling that you are playing against someone named Samsung Smart Fridge
LordChrusher: This game, explain what you are supposed to do?
Pywodwagon: killing people, I guess?
Rourke9: I think maybe killing someone with the streak?
PixelArtDragon: "Get points"?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Challenges yes
Rboy634: Yes, Challenges are just playing matches in new IB
Watson87: Apparently so
Rboy634: think it caps out at 8
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Challenges is the “win X amount of games” when you mouse over the playlist nodes
josh___something: The objs are... kills? or kill streaks?
Cptasparagus: "interesting choice summoner"
josh___something: The challenges are just the pinnacle marker
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The ones that give the rank increase multiplier
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Jotunn! :D
josh___something: which is "complete matches in IB on arc or stasis"
Rboy634: Shotguns or Fusions seem to be the popular special.
Rourke9: Cameron, have you checked out Immortality?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: I lean heavily on Jotunn for pvp.
mjpants06: Glances are good?
Foxmar320: Shotguns I think. At least thats what I always die to
GhostofJeffGoldblum: I am that person.
Cptasparagus: you're a braver person than I for even attempting pvp in this game, I only ever raided
PixelArtDragon: Snipers any good ATM?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @ghostofjeffgoldblum me too absolutely
josh___something: It's on the pinnacle marker in IB
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yes mouse over the node to see. It’s very bad at communicating this fact.
josh___something: ^
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Last time I ran like 10 games on the wrong subclass ugh
josh___something: Thankfully I was already on arc
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Progress on the Challenge, that is. You still get rank points with Saladin to get stuff.
Foxmar320: At least 1 AFK on our team
josh___something: Yeah, arc/stasis only matters for the challenge. you can still do everything else on void
josh___something: WUT?!
Foxmar320: It should yeah
mjpants06: That’s seems a bit off
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Only if opponents use it, in my experience.
Rourke9: rude! ugh :(
Athelgar: thats some fucky hitbox detection
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Mine has some sort of anti-tracking
josh___something: It's much less forgiving after the nerfs, but yes
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Seriously I think about…75%? 85%? of my PvP success is thanks to Jotunn. The Rain of Fire exotic spiced it up even more last season. It’s the only thing I can reliably use.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Jotunn is how I got my Recluse, back in the day
josh___something: OOOH, I need to dirt people out with Rain of Fire jotunn
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: somehow I’m so incompetent at PvP that I can’t even figure out slide shotgunning
GhostofJeffGoldblum: That and abusing HHSS (F)
Rourke9: i still love Witherhoard
mjpants06: Everyone loves withehoard
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @ghostofjeffgoldblum oh god don’t get me started on my doomed and disheartening fight for Recluse
Rourke9: that was a great streak!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @josh___something if you haven’t tried out rain of fire Jotunn in PvP and or the triple LFR Mythoclast build you have something To Do
josh___something: ugh, I remember having to sludge through the witherhoard catalyst...
josh___something: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou If only I had a mytho 💔
Rourke9: yea, the catalyst takes forever
GhostofJeffGoldblum: nice nice nice
GhostofJeffGoldblum: ICE to meet you
Foxmar320: Cam just kiloled half their team
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I ran a Vow on Deliverance/Mythoclast/Reed’s with Rain and my goal was to never touch the ground
josh___something: I love the stasis warlock super
Foxmar320: Someone on the other team is uninstalling the game now
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Stasis Warlock super: “stop. shut up. everyone stop.”
mjpants06: Exotic glaive?
josh___something: I'm partial to pulse rifle
Sogheim: it's good to know the Samsung Smart Fridge has something to do while I'm at work
mjpants06: Vigilance wing is good at killing
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: There’s always Eye or Ophidian or Transversive
josh___something: mostly because you don't have to hit all headshots to reach good ttk for adaptives
josh___something: and lightweights, I think?
Rourke9: familiar is good!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cold snap osmiomancy can ruin people’s day in pvp
josh___something: Osmiomancies is lowkey a very strong build
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The double cold snap seekers rule
josh___something: oppressive, in the right hands
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s like getting the double axiom bolts
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s hard to dodge the Coldsnap seekers and most people don’t pay enough attention to try
josh___something: I can't use coldsnaps to save my life, but I've definitely been on the recieving end of it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Just don’t get too attached to turrets because unfortunately most folks are smart enough to shoot them down
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: And the energy refund Os gives on freezing a Guardian is significant
josh___something: wait... did the COLDSNAPS kill that guardian?!

Brozard: The usual BS?
josh___something: God, it's fun to freeze folks XD
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Stasis subclasses should make your character spout Mr. Freeze one liners
josh___something: It's significantly less bad than control IB
josh___something: but that's not saying much

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: speaking of the seeker coming right back at you, I once headshot myself with a Sleeper ricochet down the back hallway on this map
josh___something: Briefly at a 5 streak, nice!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @ghostofjeffgoldblum better yet, Ghost starts coming up with worse and worse puns
josh___something: The turret is less good once people learned to shoot it
josh___something: But still basically stationary arc buddie
Foxmar320: Turret was never great in PVP
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: in PvP most people know to shoot the turret and with the freeze stack changes it doesn’t freeze a guardian fast enough for them not to kill it
GhostofJeffGoldblum: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou yes. love it.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: rip Stacey
josh___something: It still slows, so still useful. but, you'll never see a freeze on it now
mjpants06: That was clean
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I get why, it would feel very bad to just get turret frozen all match, but still, pour one out for Stacey
josh___something: I forgot you put the confetti on this gun XD
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Nice
josh___something: I still find the slow very good value.
josh___something: but maybe not on osmiomancy
josh___something: since turret maxes out the cooldown regardless of grenade
josh___something: freezy rift?
josh___something: I like freezy rift, yeah
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: are you on Shards?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Shards with the overshield mod can help
noSmokeFire: "oh, front towards ENEMY"
josh___something: nope
josh___something: light level does not matter
josh___something: NGL though, I just use the fragments as extra stat points to round out my recov XD
josh___something: Absolutely dirted that hunter
josh___something: holymoly
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: nothing funnier than getting the freeze mid attack
josh___something: it stopped just before, I'm afraid
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: especially when it’s in mid air and they do the looney tunes hang for a moment then fall
Nukified: seeker, keep seeking
josh___something: God, lightning surge is such a cool ability
josh___something: Nearly got one-punched, jesus
mjpants06: Seeker sook!
Stammer6: Finally I'm online to catch a LRR stream!
josh___something: props to the titan for giving it the ol college try though
Stammer6: How's Cam doing? :D
satyropodobny: a hoonter must hoont
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron did I ever tell you the story of the saddest Grombit Thundercrash
Cptasparagus: is that person a hunter gone rogue or a hunter of rogues?
josh___something: @Cptasparagus yes
Statist42: hay friends lrrSHINE
Lord_Hosk: Hey Chat, I forgot to tell you something
josh___something: There's also banana loot to cash in from saladin
Lord_Hosk: You are an outstanding person and make the world better by being in it thanks for being you (points at each and every person in chat)
Cptasparagus: if you're not a cop you have to say you're not a cop
josh___something: I've not tested out the wizened rebuke, but I do like High-impact FRs just for how far it can oneshot
Statist42: any particular reason for d2 on talking sim? or just "cam is solo, and d2 is fun"?
Juliamon: the latter
ContingentCat: that's all the reason we need
Statist42: perfectly fine reason, just wanted to check
CastleOtranto: @Lord_Hosk Much love back atcha
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: we’re analyzing the mystery of the Destiny PvP sandbox, a capricious and impenetrable maze
Nukified: so a hand cannon or a shotgun?
TokenMickus: I'm curious about the tags for the stream but too afraid to ask.
Juliamon: They make sense to me
Dog_of_Myth: Need a Space Horse tag.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: sure why not
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: IB is good experiment time
TokenMickus: I like any horse, just sad that none is here
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: High-Impact Reserves Under Pressure and or Backup Plan I think
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Because you’ll only ever have a couple shots in the mag high impact and under pressure will basically always trigger
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I like the sound of TB with stasis melee
BrowneePoints: The seasonal shotty also goes and I quote, "Ka-chunk"
josh___something: Isn't skyburners unironically a good gun now?
BrowneePoints: Skyburner's got much better yes
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: There’s also the new Pugilist trait which is Demolitionist for melee, the new blunderbuss shotty can roll it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Sky burners is unironically fine for aerial PvP yeah
josh___something: syncopation is craftable anyways
BrowneePoints: that auto rifle from the preorder is spicy Cam
BrowneePoints: like...Thai place mad at a Karen spicy
Foxmar320: The new exotic auto from Lightfall is already making Telesto sweat for bugs is causing
josh___something: isn't the exotic disabled everywhere?
Foxmar320: No it's only disabled in some content
BrowneePoints: yes. it's a Rifle that can then fire grenades which can then fire rockets
BrowneePoints: and has caused some bugs
TimeToFry: What does the preorder exotic do?
josh___something: I'm partial just just cracking them raw
aesir_blade: more importantly it wants a hundred legendary shards per!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the preorder exotic morphs between three different weapon classes is what it does. Lots of bugs, not gamebreaking, but weird.
josh___something: saves you 20k glimmer
Gekyouryuu: @browneepoints so destiny is having a Macross collab? Kappa
BrowneePoints: and, if the lore tab is to be inferred correctly, is Neptunian Tech!
josh___something: Air assault, still not useful
josh___something: Gutshot whiff :p
BrowneePoints: but yea the concept behind the gun is I think it's an Auto Rifle that fires nanites that shape to whatever payload is needed Cam
BrowneePoints: the Neptunians have some fucking advanced stuff
Foxmar320: It fires actual cannon balls
josh___something: the cry mutiny actually fires cannon balls
josh___something: it's wonderful
josh___something: They are to some extent, but not to the heights of particle decon, sadly
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I have a Theory on Neomuna
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: (which means like a 70% chance I’m wrong but hey)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: listen Saladin has to stand there for a looong time with not much to do but hand out goodie bags
aesir_blade: You jest, Cameron, but I've always been hung up over the thought of different people having their chirality qualia reversed compared to each other
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the man has time for Deep Reflection
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: how does Saladin not get heat stroke standing in full armor in front of a giant flaming piece of metal
BrowneePoints: my brain heard Wassail and I was like no it's not Wassailing season yet!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I mean the sky is basically an ocean we walk around on the bottom of
budbjinxed: So does that mean that the Earth would be an infinitely expansive egg that harbors the rest of the universe?
BrowneePoints: So because I find the design/ui question interesting Cam, if Strand is going to be bright lime green, what color do you think the theoretical 3rd Darkness subclass will be?
LordChrusher: Red?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: gravity is the same as acceleration in different reference frames so it’s a serious physics model to consider if say the Earth is actually constantly expanding, exerting a pressure on us, but we are also expanding at the same rate and so don’t notice the change
BrowneePoints: I wanted to say red but Color Blindness @LordChrusher plus red is used for "ability not available" and "low health" same reason I think Yellow is out
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: red probably. In my heart I dream it’ll be Seraph energy but I don’t have enough good karma with Bungie for that.
Dog_of_Myth: @BrowneePoints Plaid :p
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Maybe make void a more fuchsia purple and the third a dark purple?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Like with Arc and Stasis
Dog_of_Myth: Seriously though, some variation of red mixed with another color maybe.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Magenta and Black are the last in the 8-bit color palette I think
BrowneePoints: Yea I was thinking it might be a hot pink
BrowneePoints: or like a bright magenta

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: no everyone gets the free box
jacqui_lantern234: @Dog_of_Myth how dare u be nice to me?!?! :p
Dog_of_Myth: I dare
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Yeah I’m really interested to see what Strand looks like. Warlock pet class finally.
BrowneePoints: but yea for readability sake I don't think the 3rd darkness subclass will be Black, but it'd look neat
Dog_of_Myth: Black with red mixed in maybe?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I wouldn’t have minded poison but now thinking about it it wouldn’t have exactly been new. Strand seems VERY new, like how Stasis really shook up the spectrum of player abilities.
BrowneePoints: I'm so hyped for the Hunter Daggertail
BrowneePoints: I like that the Light classes are creation, and Darkness aren't destruction, but are more esoteric
josh___something: I'm just excited to swing into the abyss.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: somehow they’ve wedged grappling hooks and pets into the same class it’s kinda wild
BrowneePoints: cuz Stasis is Entropy and Strand represents universal consciousness I think?
aesir_blade: I want to start seeing stuff that gives cross-element synergies, e.g. get an arc soul when you get a void soul, chill a thing when you jolt it, etc
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I do like that Strand like Stasis has a theme of calling on something that’s already there rather than manifesting new power. It works with the idea that Darkness is inside everyone.
josh___something: I do kinda wish we got a healing solar soul
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: eliksni splicers can also call on ambient Light so it’s around too, but I like the Darkness subclass theme of twisting what’s already present

Raincoast_Bear: Hiya Cam. Looks like you have this under control. I'm going to head to the Warhammer store and play some Killteam. Laters!
josh___something: I usually expect my freeze melees to whiff, and get pleasantly surprised if I do hit
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh I black out from visual overload constantly. I blame my lousy PvP record on it. It’s definitely not just you.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I get overwhelmed for a tenth of a second and at the end of it I’m dead
vellebastet: Hm. So it's Destiny today, huh?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s why I particularly hate the Scorn, they have so many particle effects I overload very quickly.
josh___something: Line of Sight, maybe?
SquareDotCube: sounds like a simple solution - an Effects option in Graphics that minimizes or removes those effects
josh___something: What shotgun is that?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: There are settings to minimize some effects but overall it’s not currently an option
josh___something: oh, a slug
josh___something: makes sense
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Fractethyst I believe

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Riiswalker pretty built for PvP
BrowneePoints: yea, the seasonal is unfortunately a slug, but it also hits REALLY hard
josh___something: Demo isn't the worst
BrowneePoints: i mean, it looks like a blunderbuss
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it’s a blunderbuss and I love it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: and I usually hate shotguns
BrowneePoints: if it didn't explode things i'd be sad
josh___something: I'm mildly miffed the blunderbuss is a slug
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I like to imagine my Ghost stuffing broken ceramics and nails into it
BrowneePoints: the seasonal shotty is just Roadhog's gun from Overwatch
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the seasonal scout also feels really good IMO
BrowneePoints: Eliksni just jamming scrap metal into a shotgun barrel and exploding guardians. headcanon accepted
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: though I have to say, annoyed as I am that KF keeps giving me Doom of Chelchis, it’s also a really good feeling scout
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @browneepoints I mean that is literally how Lord of Wolves works
BrowneePoints: I got a REALLY good Doom last week
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It can roll Firefly/Dragonfly which means dual solar void explosions on precision kill and I cannot wait till I can craft one.
josh___something: Doom feels like it's in every encounter's loot pool
josh___something: every kill in a streak past 1 gives like 20%
josh___something: super energy
BrowneePoints: I god an Adaptive Dragonfly one with accurized and fullbore

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Amplified maybe?
BrowneePoints: Arc injected pcp into everyone's calves
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that amplified speed booster is no joke
josh___something: uhoh
constablecrab: My entire experience of Destiny PVP is getting killed from behind by glowing people with swords.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @constablecrab mine is getting killed from the front by people with shotguns so yeah I hear ya
mjpants06: Mine is panic blinking of the edge of the map
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Frostpulse? I’m not sure if it has enough freeze stacks to freeze a guardian…
josh___something: it does
josh___something: but they basically have to be in the rift radius
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I’m not sure, I’m looking it up
josh___something: It definitely can
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Don’t take my word for it I don’t know the new sandbox that well
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: mouse over the playlist node
josh___something: it's the golden pinnacle marker on the playlist
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: from the director
josh___something: It's a relatively new thing
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: no it’s not you it’s just very badly explained
EvilBadman: You get X a day but can make up for past days
josh___something: you've already done it it seems
Dog_of_Myth: Explaining in destiny? :p
TheMerricat: I'm sure if you went back and read all of the change notes between then and now it would be explained in a paragraph somewhere
EvilBadman: Today's day one of IB so you did them. It's usually play 7 games or something. It is abrudly obtuse
EvilBadman: absurdly
josh___something: It's not well explained at all
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It gives one new challenge a day for four days. So after four days you can do all previous challenges, but day 1 you can only do one, day 2 you can do 1 and 2, etc
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think the idea is most IB players play on weekends anyway? IDK.
josh___something: what GCU said
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It took me most of the first new IB week to figure out what the hell they were talking about.
EvilBadman: It's how they changed the 4 weekly quests that had pinnacles on them. Better in the long run, I think, but again not explained at all
josh___something: And the challenges last season was basically "complete X games of IB on solar/void"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: kinda like the weekly seasonal challenges where one set unlocks per week but you can still complete the previous weeks
josh___something: Yep
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh yes you could always do that
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you can hit the button a lot or hitting super shatters it immediately
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh also if you’re running Frostpulse, maybe try The Stag?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: just constantly casting rifts
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah IDK…the radius may just not be big enough against Guardians =\
josh___something: You seem to be done the arc/stasis challenges, so you can also switch back to void
josh___something: They basically have to be in your rift to freeze so... yeah
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: also true no need to run Stasis for the challenge
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: god did you see the creepy new Contraverse ornamnet
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: thanks I hate it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it’s just HANDS
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I HATE IT
josh___something: Love how many hands per hand ot is
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: and the hands even shade…it’s the worst
josh___something: also, it takes glows!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: one of my WWFT teammates wore it all raid oh my god
josh___something: It's basically the omnioculus ornament, but in warlock form
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I know Contraverse looks like it has a printer ribbon cable but is it really worth it
josh___something: Soon the titan will get an ornament that's just legs on legs
DEATHlikescats: So many cheaters, just ruins the fun
josh___something: (overcharging scatter with nothing manacles is redundant, so you may wanna switch out the overcharge aspect.
josh___something: I... don't remember
4 raiders from Weslyphon have joined!
josh___something: I know GLs got hit with q couple of nerfs a few seasons back
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Blinding and Concussion grenades got a damage decrease, if you’re on ghose
josh___something: Also that. if it's a blinding, it got a damage nerf to where it can't one shot
josh___something: I'm gonna look it up
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: spike may have gotten a change that wants a direct hit, I’ll check
SajuukSjet waves to channel
SajuukSjet: just finished a King's Fall :D
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: nice!
SajuukSjet: ToM eludes me still :D
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: show that king what for
josh___something: also, overcharging and nothing manacles do the same effect so, probs best to switch off overcharge
SajuukSjet: got Heartshadow finally yesterday though
SquareDotCube: I feel like, the big problem of PvP modes is, they're trying way too hard to balance for all possible loadouts and what they need to do is just not let players play with their loadouts, either by giving them a randomized loadout at start or per death, or having to pick up guns scattered about the map in the vein of a classic multiplayer shooter.
josh___something: Since void 3.0, overcharging scatters only gives tracking now
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yes okay it looks like the damage radius changes a few months back indirectly hurt spike grenades, as they moved more damage into the blast from the impact, and spike boosts impact only. So you may have better luck with a non-Spike breech loader.
josh___something: huh
MyOnlyAliasIsTaken: I don't understand anything that's happening, but you have a very pretty hat
SajuukSjet: Fashion Destiny _is_ Best Destiny :P
Rourke9: Dresstiny, if you will
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: god I love the animation on void melee ball. “here hold this!!”
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: axion darts are STUPID
Rourke9: yea, Im frustrated by how little axion does :(
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: axion darts were ruling the sandbox for a bit and reaped the consequences unfortunately
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: especially with the double darts on overcharged axion
josh___something: hrmm... looks like back in season 15 it's blast radius got decreased by .4m so min/max is now 3.40/4.15m radius
ForOhForError: I mean there was a grenade setup on arc 2.0 tree
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah the overall ballast radius were reduced. Except Fighting Lion funnily enough.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh slowva bomb. You…tried.
El_Funko: I haven't seen this map in a couple years but the memories of getting spawn camped on one point have come flooding back
josh___something: Overcharge Vortex nades are a bit of fun because of it's pull effect.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it was not the brightest Big Happy Fun Ball no
josh___something: I do miss it too.
SocraticMethod: Simulation! *Jazz Hands*
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: In-universe they’re simulations
SajuukSjet: oooh, nice use of the Titan Europan helmet
Foxmar320: They never did enough with Titan. So much potential
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: out of universe because that’s a lot of maps to replace. And New Arcadia is the last place to hear the Warmind music :<
Pazy160: Titan was so much fun, I miss that place.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: in-universe I know the Lighthouse is a simulation and the other maps get handwaved similarly
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: they haven’t made new grombit maps in ages, could really do with a couple.
josh___something: Please more gambit maps
SajuukSjet: iirc they've mentioned that there's a lot of maps for all PvP activities in the pipelines currently
josh___something: I need to not be on europa the 65th time in a row
Foxmar320: Gambit does need more maps but also needs to stop having motes glitch into the floor
SajuukSjet: not this showcase, but the previous showcase
SajuukSjet: and/or in the TWaBs
josh___something: or whatever the ice map is on
SajuukSjet: Foxmar320
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I still love New Arcadia just for the sheer fact that we’re playing with guns around what seems like an active warsat factory like how did we not get javelin’d from orbit
SajuukSjet: that's a feature at this point, surely!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: supposedly there are more maps for all the PvP activities soon
SajuukSjet: yeah, i'm pretty sure they've got new maps for the PvP stuff slated for.... within the next year? all next year?
Foxmar320: Quicksilver is the new Telesto confirmed
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: well that’s what happens when you make a gun that switches weapon classes on the fly
josh___something: They've not shown their hand regarding maps
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I’m not sure how they thought that would turn out
josh___something: combo blow?
SajuukSjet: there was a TWaB/showcase where they admitted that they needed new content for the PvP stuff, and the first part of the outcome of the new hires and such and the visible work was the new IB stuff
josh___something: Does combo blow still do that?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I just assume all Hunters have the ability to do whatever they like in PvP :P
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: nice
Cptasparagus: Sergeing?
Spades_Slicc: What's more of a feel bad: Destiny PVP or Grey Night Warhammer Game
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh is that the kill streak buff?
josh___something: considering hunters get a 90% dmg resist if they dodge while amped, I don't think anything si too far off
josh___something: 2-4 surging, 5+ primes
josh___something: primed
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think surging is the buff for your killstreak
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: goddamn arc hunters are not okay
Foxmar320: Yeah Arc 3.0 has some sus buffs in it lol
Foxmar320: Amped does a lot
TheMerricat: Surging Get one (1) kill to receive one (1) point and a normal amount of energy. Get one (1) more defeat or assist and you will become Surging. During this mode, the following will apply:
TheMerricat: Glow slightly Additional defeats generate 10 percent Super energy, 20 percent grenade, melee, and class energy Each kill rewards two (2) points When you get a total of five (5) defeats without dying, you will become Primed.
josh___something: Warlocks DO also just get amped for free if you eat a grenade, so...
josh___something: (with getaway artists)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: we can eat grenades?
apotheosis61: Always take a break while playing destiny pvp
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh with getaway
Juliamon: It's fine, run ads at the end
Juliamon: (I don't know how it works, don't take my advice)
apotheosis61: It's nice of Citial to stil let Saladman run Iron Banner
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron does the blast radius feel any better?
josh___something: The flavor of getting a speed booster now with getaway artists is kinda funny
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that does seem like a fun power?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I too would like this ability
apotheosis61: I wish they had just stuck to their guns and made it rift
josh___something: I think it does on a tooltip in the navigator
josh___something: like how gambit has a rules tooltip
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s in the TWAB but they’ve done an absolutely trash job of conveying this info in-game. They’re going to have a tough row to hoe explaining things to all the EGS New Lights I tell you ehat
Spades_Slicc: Why would a competitive game tell you things important for playing it effectively? What do the developers want, an engaging meta?
apotheosis61: TLDR its TDM but sometimes people be angy
josh___something: Destiny is not w competitive game in the slightest
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: if Destiny PvP wanted me to learn things it shouldn’t have a TTK shorter than the human reflex response time.
apotheosis61: I think of the 3 modes that Iron banner has been in the last year this one is by far the worst it has no mechanic for bad pvp players to be useful
Frankenstain: Are you a regular Destiny player? I haven't played in a few years and am hesitant on coming back and being so out of the loop.
TehAmelie: guess they want you to just practice like it's a real sport until your fingers recognize the situation and react with the appropriate response on their own
TheMerricat: Well... they could feed the other team so they get hunts on faster
SocraticMethod: They can, since being farmed means opp gets their supers up quicker
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I liked Control IB because I could capture zones and at least feel a little useful. Otherwise I’m just free kills for the other team.
apotheosis61: The youth are OP
SocraticMethod: Arc 3.0 baybee!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I don’t get it either Cameron
apotheosis61: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou big same
josh___something: LUL
apotheosis61: That person is real dead
Spades_Slicc: Are ya winning, Cam?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @tehamelie if they wanted that to be true they should at least give me the tools to recognize how to evade the situation in any way
josh___something: in russia, the grape eats you
TehAmelie: ehe
Spades_Slicc: Did that say one of your teammates had a "combat efficiency of "0.86"?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you just watched a man vaporize
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @spades_slicc yeah it’s just (K+A)/D
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: so they got fewer kills than deaths
Spades_Slicc: no multiple?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: multiple?
Spades_Slicc: wait were everyone elses in the 100's or 1.xx or 1x.x?
SocraticMethod: 1.xx or 0.xx
Spades_Slicc: Okay
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah in an IB match the highest is probably 2.5 or 3.5 if you got stomped
SocraticMethod: Top scorers got 2.xx I think
Spades_Slicc: it looked like everyone else was 100+ and one person was at 0.8
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh yeah no it should be around 1
josh___something: I've got a lifetime positive combat efficiency according to charlie. Mostly because I've resorted to using pulses so I don't have to be in the front lines
TehAmelie: been doing a bit of Elden Ring pvp since i figured out you can invite yourself to help other people's games without inviting them and invaders to yours. so exhausting, in very different ways from this
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I’m pretty sure I’m still under 1. I am a strict detriment to your team.
TehAmelie: people invade, but they don't want to fight, ever. they'll spend ten, fifteen minutes running away and trying to bait monsters to kill the defenders
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: brb goin home from work, if Cameron signs off before I return, thanks for subjecting yourself to IB for our entertainment
josh___something: @tehamelie wow, that sounds miserable
TehAmelie: well, everyone's equally pissed
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh hey
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: dude join the freaking club
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I’ve been wondering that for four goddamn years
josh___something: Gamers
Spades_Slicc: Leg Day
apotheosis61: Hunter dodge is cracked also ark 3.0 makes sure nobody skipped leg day
SportyMusic: game is filled with zoomers
josh___something: Also, maybe arc 3.0
josh___something: the banner challenge IS arc
SocraticMethod: Cam, could you please preview the rocket launcher?
apotheosis61: new iron banner set when
CAKHost: I read Iron Lord and thought "Destiny has Dark Souls content???" XD
SocraticMethod: @apotheosis61 In 1-2 season
apotheosis61: It can roll with tracking and lasting impression if you're interested in that
SocraticMethod: Aww, they fixed it. It used to be pink and purple
TehAmelie: roar of the bear feels like a translation of the name of a real russian rocket launcher
josh___something: It was always that shader to me.
apotheosis61: I want the sidearm with gutshot straight that might be fun
josh___something: I farmed for that darn adept hothead, I'm not chasing another RL D:
SocraticMethod: Tracking + Lasting Impressions sounds like Fist of the North Star Build
SportyMusic: new crucible shader is sweet bloody yourself up
EvilBadman: If you haven't yet, there's two weapon crafting quest at the Enclave they added last week. The second weapon is a real solid Heavy LFR when you craft it and level it.
apotheosis61: Shax also had a shader for you I think
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Is Raven back in the loot pool? Felwinter’s GL?
josh___something: cruci shader is sweet
SocraticMethod: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Nope
josh___something: Just the RL right now
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I don’t really need it I just miss my BFF
SocraticMethod: The sidearm got re-intoduced this week
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Amen
TheMerricat: Time to grind. :P
apotheosis61: Yo can I borrow some of your enhancement Prisims
TehAmelie: when i feel that way, i go looking for mods and cheats. but with this forced multiplayer thing. . .
josh___something: Time to bloody yourself up with the shader :p
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron come raid soon :D
apotheosis61: Floor is lava?
josh___something: Dresstiny?
ContingentCat: or both?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Four minute new cosmetics review
Foxmar320: They still get mad when they loose
Spirrie: Throw item with a glowy aura at other glowy object? Too hard
SquareDotCube: It's the ol' "treat everything as deathmatch mode" problem.
KeytarCat: @josh___something stressediny?
apotheosis61: pvp in most games where it isn't the main focus is misrable
Foxmar320: Cam my raid team for tonight needs one still. ;)
DistractedMOSFET: Objective-based games are forever cursed with the problem that people really just want to shoot things. The objective probably doesn't feel as immediately fun as blasting a fool.
josh___something: Kings fall fucks.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: If there’s one thing we learned from Gambit Prime it’s that people are the worst at doing a job
apotheosis61: Kings Fall does is great I think Cam might have cleared it a few tiems in d1 if I had to guess lol
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Even when the job is clearly delineated with appropriate colors and uniforms
Cptasparagus: helmet on?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Oh Cameron pick up the Relic Forgw quests
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: If you haven’t alreadt
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Ammit and Taipan are both worth your time
SocraticMethod: Enclave, Mars
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The Relic Forge
EvilBadman: Mars Enclave
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Enclave
apotheosis61: They're at the weapon crafting thing
SocraticMethod: Good news! Disassembling gives you patterns now
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: actually you now get pattern progress for the dismantle
Spades_Slicc: Compleating a weapon you say?
josh___something: both the guns are worth the time
josh___something: Nezarics being qrc was a crime
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The quests give you all the needed patterns though so it’s worth going through the steps
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: thanks for stream!
ContingentCat: thanks for the stream Cam
shurtal: My father had me order him a Gallon of Boat engine oil. He was sent a quart of Mildew Remover. Amazon says we can keep the remover as part of the refund process. Thanks Amazon....
