Customs Night: Destiny edition (Recruitment)

by General Vagueness @, The Vault of Sass, Saturday, October 01, 2016, 21:15 (1107 days ago)

Hello again, DBO. Things have been hectic but I'd like to try this again (or, again again). It's simple: we get in a private match and play whatever we feel like for however long we want and most likely have some idle conversation.

Fireteam event: http://destiny.bungie.org/forum/index.php?mode=fireteambuilder&event=1979
(you can also join on "Gnrl Vagueness" on the Xbox One)

I saw some videos the other day that gave me some ideas for what we can do if standard games (like Clash) and semi-standard games (like "let's all use year 1 gear" or "let's only use abilities") get too boring. My favorites are this:

and this:

and this:

These do involve honor rules, but if you guys are up for them I think they could be really fun. There are a lot of other ideas out there too, and they can get pretty specific, like matches for Hunters, Titans, or Warlocks.

This will hopefully start at 9:00 PM EST-- tonight.

but that's only two hours from now

Like I said, things have been hectic around here-- birthdays, jobs, school, getting sick, etc. If you've had a hectic month too, why not come blow off some steam?

I would love to play some custom matches where everyone agrees to play with the HUD turned off. I think it would be great!

We tried that a bit for Kermit's screenshot activity and it was fun but kind of confusing!

Just played it last night, no HUD rumble. So fun. The audio cues in the game become incredibly important when there's no radar to look at, and - IMO - they're way more accurate in terms of telling you where the other players are. I got killed while corner camping with my shotgun because my opponent heard me aim my gun. Seriously, when you ADS it makes an audible click.

This is the big thing we learned - everything that makes a sound effect for you when you do it, makes that same sound effect in the game world for everyone else. It makes sense, but it's actually not normal in FPS games. Like in CoD I know ADSing doesn't make a sound, nor does kneeling or lying down, but in Destiny they do (well, lying down means you're dead, but you know what I mean).

Nice, I don't have the link at the moment, but I learned last night that you can apparently fire a shotgun shell (1 kill), then immediately shoulder charge (2 kills). If you still have your melee charged you could potentially pick up a triple kill off of that!

How? Shouldn't firing mean you are no longer running?? I could see Shoulder Charge, Shotgun, Melee.. though really there should be a brief cooldown somewhere in there too...

Titan Skating.

As long as you don't cancel your sprint, your shoulder charge will remain "charged" while you are gliding in mid-air. So you can sprint, jump, and fire your gun without cancelling your sprint.

So what you're saying is that Sprint cancelling as a Titan is user error? Good to know. ;)

That's what I assumed, but I watched the guy do it! I guess a shotgun trigger pull doesn't immediately cancel the shoulder charge just like how you can slide without breaking your shoulder charge for a short time period. It might be _really_ short though, I haven't tested it yet.

I can confirm that you cannot do this with fusion rifles though.
