It’s a decent start. (Destiny)

I’m still not sure why they introduce Heavy into the match so quickly. First Heavy spawn should be at two minutes, not 45 seconds.

What the Heavy spawn really does is establish the conflict. You have to at least contest it, and in most games a clean pickup by one team off the bat is unusual.

A lot of the complaints about D2Y1 were related to the slow pace of PvP, where hanging back and getting picks was more rewarding than aggressive gameplay. I like Destiny best when it rewards decisive, aggressive strategies, and contesting Heavy spawns usually results in that type of gameplay.

Now, in the situation where someone actually does get clean Heavy, things can get frustrating, so I'd like to see that amount of ammo reduced (which I think they did here as well). Especially for Machine Guns.
