I'm not in favour of nerfing any weapons. But I was thinking about this earlier. Trials of Osiris and Iron Banana are supposed to be about the best of the best right.....

Isn't it meant to be seen as separate from ordinary PvP crucible and marketed as being tournaments for the best to participate in to show off their skills and see how they match up against each other?

So, why not make Iron Banana and Trials of Osiris a LEGENDARY GUN ONLY tournament?

The exotics can still be used in regular crucible, just not in event based tournaments in the crucible.....

I'm half decent in PvP and I hate the easy kills afforded to average/below average players by guns like Thorn, Vex, Hawkmoon, icebreaker, Gjallarhorn etc.

IMHO, anyone who claims to be a decent player doesn't need overpowered weapons to get cheap ass kills. It's too easy!

+DBMgamer I would have agreed with you IF Bungie hadn't made a "one gun to rule them all" total F up. No gun/piece of armour should be king in any mode.

Each exotic should have been designed for specific one/two use only scenario's. Not the equip it once and never change loadouts, like EVER, clusterfuck we have now.

I often see posts saying "Bungie should fix this/nerf that" and i often see responses by Luke Smith "Bungie officials" saying "Fuck you whingers!" "We know there are issues and are working on it!"

Constant patches and still broken..... Not a good way to instill confidence!

You should post this on your main page +DBMgamer

Sick of setting all these whiny posts lately. If you don't like what Bungie are doing then I suggest you either find a different game to play or accept things as they are and STOP WHINING. 😉

"The gubmint made me write it, cause they said it's true. So we wrote what THEY wanted us to write"..... Sunday Times reporter on Snowden leaks supposedly hacked by China and Russia which led to spies being compromised.

Okay so I paraphrased a bit. Hey, if its good enough for them.......

Question.... Have they changed the Deathsinger on hard mode?

I can usually solo it easily. Doing my run this morning and Nada. As soon as I take out the first wizard/shrieker combo and set about to take out the second wizard the liturgy begins. I'm getting killed by the liturgy at under 2 mins on every attempt!!! Don't you have 2 mins 30 (including liturgy) to complete the section?

Also, noticed that the Deathsinger still moves around when the liturgy has started. Hoping it's just a glitch.........

It has been a bit glitchy recently, our deathsinger started that lithergy and had no flames. That was on normal though.

So, how many of you have encountered these "paid" government trolls in online posts? I have, on numerous occasions, and have taken great pleasure in outing a fair few of them.

They really don't like that.... But hey, all's fair in psychology and war..... Right 🙈🙉🙊
 
Government Trolls Are Using ”Psychology-Based Influence Techniques” in Social Media http://b4in.org/tOpn

Have you ever come across someone on the Internet that you suspected was a paid government troll? Well, there is a very good chance that you were not imagining things.

Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have solid proof that paid government trolls are using “psychology-based influence techniques” on social media websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Documents leaked by Snowden also reveal that government agents have been conducting denial-of-service attacks, flooding social media websites with thinly veiled propaganda and have been purposely attempting to warp public discourse online. If we do not stand up and object to this kind of Orwellian behavior, it is only going to get worse and worse.

In the UK, the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) is a specialized unit within the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). If it wasn’t for Edward Snowden, we probably still would never have heard of them. This particular specialized unit is engaged in some very “questionable” online activities. The following is an excerpt from a recent piece by Glenn Greenwald and Andrew Fishman…

Though its existence was secret until last year, JTRIG quickly developed a distinctive profile in the public understanding, after documents from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the unit had engaged in “dirty tricks” like deploying sexual “honey traps” designed to discredit targets, launching denial-of-service attacks to shut down Internet chat rooms, pushing veiled propaganda onto social networks and generally warping discourse online.
