Iron Banner and me

I got my Titan done, LVL 5, my Hunter (master class) is almost done somewhere around 4.5 or so. I decided even though my Warlock has no business in the IB I’d give it a try, all I could do is lose. I give my Warlock my best weapons and ghost and she is sitting at about 257 light. I play my first game and i get thrown into a match but it is just a couple points into it so I think it wont be bad… It gets called when we are down by 10K. Very first time I’ve ever seen a match called. I’m thinking this must be my fault but I’ll try one more time just to make sure, after all I’ve seen other people play at that light. I check out everyone’s light before the game starts and no one is above 300 or below 290. We ended up losing but I came out on top of my team! I even lucked into a triple down with 2 rockets, and once with my shotgun and Warlock melee. The guys I was playing with should be embarrassed on both teams. Letting a low light like me get over 3K points in a game. I did have to play smarter and a bit different than how I normally play but I did well.

TL:DR Try out one of your low light characters, you might be surprised and you can pic up your class item for the next time IB rolls around.

They say that gear level is so important in the Iron Banner but I didn’t really think it’s the case. While 257 vs a 300 sounds like a huge difference it most like really isn’t. Game play probably over comes the slight advantage they have in gear.

As for the Iron Banner. It was a very disappointing waste of time. In all the games I’ve played, I’ve only witnessed one weapon drop. WTF. I’ve played a ton of hours on 4 nights just saw shit for drops. That’s not just for me but for my entire party. It’s just really sucks.

At this point, I need to finish out my huntard to get that damn pulse rifle. I’m about 400 points shy.

yeah everyone is upset at the low drop rate which wasn’t supposed to be low. I think they will figure it out and fix it next time. they said you shouldn’t have to buy anything unless RNG hates you. I got a few things but nothing spectacular.

Did buy the Pulse Rifle tonight. It’s ok. Not sure if I’m in love with it. Also got the Hacksaw on a drop in the Heroic Strikes.

I think I’m done with IB this go around, hopefully the drops will be fixed for next time. Ran a few heroic strikes, and walked away with an exotic engram that turned to a telesto, and a legendary engram that turned into last word. Also got a few blues, one of which turned into Apple of discord. Pretty good night, and only played for around 2 hours.

IB Pulse Rifle is BAE. Two bursts headshots and it’s guardian down!
I chewed up a bunch of fools using it on my alt after getting it with my primary.

We don’t use the term BAE in this community. Thanks for understanding!


WTF is a BAE. Is that like Prolly and Tho?

No wonder @Claude505 went into hiding…

I hate to admit you’re right ever :slight_smile: but you’re right, at least in standard crucible. Last night in IB there must have been a couple very low light opponents that I did in with 2 bursts.

PS Gunnys Sister is BAE.

That’s definitely part of it. Y’all just let me know when there’s a game worth my time and I’ll be back. Until then, with all due respect, fuck off.

Who are you?

Someone else must be using Claude’s computer.

Landdon returned the hack.
