Timeline Update, Update?

10 March 2019 - 01:13 AM

Dear Staff,

 

Been almost 4 weeks since Feb 11th when ya'll announced a timeline update would be up "...in a couple of weeks." So. Can a feller' get an ETA or what?

 

Also. Ya'll said that every six months we might get another update. When does that start up? Or is it just a normalized calendar thing like: Jan - June end, July- Dec end?

 

Thanks.

 

- The letter between H and K on your keyboard. :D


How To Kiss Your Dragon (For Muad)

07 March 2019 - 05:33 PM

As someone who back in the day actually faced off against another player using a giant flying fire-breathing, force-using lizard. It was funny to see the species get unbanned recently. However, I also felt rather joyful of it too. Mostly because since then, I've gotten rather good at fighting dragons. Especially in a symbolic sense. As a writer and as a director.

 

See. Fighting a dragon in pvp isn't very different from fighting anything else in pvp. There's the stage. The characters. And your infinite imagination. Infinite possibilities. Just like in every other fight. I mean. Sure, you can say that when fighting a dragon there are wildly terrifying things present such as the heavy weight class, the fire breathing death, it's flying annoyance, and it's always impenetrably tough iron scales that you have to overcome? But. Really. Isn't that the same when fighting a Mando too? Think about it. They're bigger, badder, impenetrable, fire-breathing, flying professional hunters. Just like the spirit of a dragon. Heck. It might be easy to get the two confused when you think about it that way. After all. What is a dragon? What makes something really really, a dragon?

 

Well. Perhaps a dragon is what every apex predator has in common? A giant fire-breathing combination of every scary thing we can think up. They are as scary, and as fierce, and as indomitable as we can make them. Especially in mythology. Ancient and modern mythology. Heck. Just calling a man a dragon and you've probably just elevated them to one scary, powerful place. After all. Dragons do it all. They do everything good. And rightly so. Because anything less then the best, the most teeth, the most claws, the most terrifying; and it's really not a dragon anymore is it? It's,.. Well. It's more of just a lizard then isn't it. Something we keep as pets or deal with like bugs or pests. No. Not very dragon'y at all.

 

So this begs the question. How do you fight a dragon in pvp? And I'd say. Well, probably just like everything else. You take hits, you build a drama. You both have big awesome moments of power and both give each other gaping holes of vulnerability. You sling bullets, lasers, rocks, or Force'y magical powers at each other like two drunk men boxing in a thunderstorm. No biggie.

 

However. I also remember that dragons got banned for a reason. People, myself included, thought they were a bit OP. Especially Force-sensitive dragons with thousands of years under their belt. So I've decided to open a discussion for the community about how we can prepare ourselves a bit better for when these giant flying creatures start taking to the battlefields en masse. (Though, admittedly, giant sithspawn and towering robots will probably always outnumber them.) So yeah. Let's do this like a round table. Because we could all use some cool ideas anyway.

 

Q: How would you, as a Star Wars fan writer, go about fighting a dragon (in pvp)?

Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter

05 March 2019 - 11:14 PM

Jumped back into Destiny today for Season 6. Got to try out the new game modes, Reckoning and Gambit Prime. Thusly,

 

 

Gambit Prime: - It was fun enough that I played five games. Sadly, I played with randoms and, (since it's brand new today,) nobody had the Four Designated Roles armor sets yet. But it was still fun. Adds had tons of health, goblins cast invulnerable shields, and you die just as fast too. Sadly, I hated how long it took to DPS the Primeval Boss. Usually three whole waves. Meanwhile, the invader from the other team can seriously ruin your progress. Adding huge amounts of heath back to the boss when he gets kills. Also, the 3rd Envoy drops his damage well in really stupid places. Either too close to the Prime or too far away.

 

Final Thoughts: - 9/10. With the Four Designated Roles armor sets and a good solid team of friends, I can see this being a blast. Just remember Rule 1: Don't get killed by the invader. Alright, alright, alright.

 

 

Reckoning: - I actually did this Public Event inside the Drifter's Spaceship just once. It was crazy confusing, the level design was wacko, the adds kept coming in swarms of dozens, and you have to jump into huge pits to teleport around the continent. So weird. And all I got for loot after killing the Champion and winning the event was a Blue Uncommon. Bug maybe?

 

Final Thoughts: - 8/10. Read the world buffs and bring a gun for add spam. I had Breakneck and Thunderlord and did just fine. Here's hoping Tier 2 and 3 are harder than Tier 1.
