(Edited) Absolute proof Iron Banner is complete bullsh*t!

I was making a new warlock and got through the 4th mission or so. I was level 4 with my friends who are all high level like my main. I decided to test Iron Banner because last night I really didn't see much of a difference playing with my lvl 30, it felt like regular crucible. So I joined up with my friends to play some Iron Banner. I was expecting to walk in and get one shotted with an ankle shot, instead I was baffled at what happened. Watch the video, and let me know what you think. Edit- Here is my second video as well, this was my third game and did even better than my first. http://youtu.be/h2rUdKnB_4M Check it out and let me know what you think! Also thanks Deej for replying at least, I was not expecting that. Although you did leave us with your usual vague wait till the update answer. Please don't just address it, please actually fix it! A big shout out to my fireteam, thanks for helping me make this video ClearVue, AssasiNinja187x, ojndeath1, DukeNukem786, and xxKunntryxx

  • I got a feeling it won't be fixed. This week. We'll more than likely see the event again, but I bet the fix for it next time will be making it a level 20+ playlist event to lock out lower levels and hide the fact those balance parameters are still in play. Just my guess.

  • Some good stuff. Apart from the fact that you were camping in the beginning... yea I agree you should've been killed rather easily.

    1. U had a full team of friends. With chemistry ur natural tendencies change because u want to be close with ur friends, u got their back and they got urs. And that's all it really takes to succeed in destiny. Everything else just falls into place. 2. Most of ur kills were clean up kills and the 1 on 1 battles u had superior position and the drop on them. 3. Nothing needs to be fixed. If anything this shows how balance the mechanics behind destiny are.

    • Here I'll throw more proof it's bullshit into the mix. Picked up the epilogue on Tuesday from the raid used it in iron banner 16dmg head shots. 3 days later after a few upgrades in damage still 16 dlc head shots.

    • When a game mode for the elite, intended for exotic weapons and gear to be supreme. Gets trashed by the very first weapon you pick up in the game... When lvl 30 players drop to a lvl 4 because he fired first.... Your game mode is broken. A lvl 4 vs a lvl 30 in iron banner should do nothing to said player.. Just like in pve with ??? Enemies.. Iron banner is a joke

      • Yep, it totally works out that the starting rifle does more damage per shot than an upgraded Bad Juju. Bungie STP'ed this one.

      • IF, and that's a big if, they decide to respond to this, I foresee two responses: 1. You're not playing the way we dreamed for Iron Banner to be played 2. Let me stop you right there bud, I know you would like to know why Iron Banner is nothing like we said it would be. But let's instead talk about how awesome Iron Banner is!!!!

          • How is this proof it is BS? You proved the game works. You were only doing 26 damage with that AR. My legendary AR not upgraded does 36 damage. Case closed.

              • This should not be complicated. If they want it to work as advertised, a level 5 player going into IB should be like a level 5 player going down to face those Hallowed Knights in the tunnels near where you spawn in the Cosmodrome at the beginning of the game . In short, it should be limited to those people who have pushed their gear to the limit. I really don't think we need 500+ posts to "debate" this.

                • It does seem like your bullets should inflict much less damage. However, you can't honestly evaluate iron banner from your one video clip. You have multiple advantages:1) you have a full fireteam of friends(huge advantage), you had an advantage on position(huge advantage), you rarely had a 1 on 1 match(huge advantage). Majority of your kills you weren't the primary target of your enemy and were earning clean up kills(enemy had a min. of 3 players target him). However, your weapon should do a lot less damage and their armor should have more of an impact of the few examples i've seen. Show a video of a random group and more 1 vs 1. A player with skill > an average player with great gear. Does it need fixing, yes, is it completely broken, No

                  This is definitely an issue needing to be addressed. The disparity between Iron Banner & standard Crucible isn't there. Even in standard Crucible was killing 20+ players at level 2, which required me to run around half the map to get to control points, having no double jump available. To the naysayers, there are a lot more examples of this disparity out there. Gamespot even has one, if you want a name to place with it.

                • Hey dude I watched your video and I think I know what the problems are that your having 1) your a sponge 2) the majority of your kills were aided by team mates.

                • Haha that was rad. Warlocks rule. Hopefully Deej says something helpful in the update. Part of me thinks we will either hear how "it is different than crucible! Trust us!" Even though its definitely not, or they won't really explain anything

                • Honestly, I agree 100% with the OP. He's right, this game is complete BS. Deej I'm sorry but nothing you say in the weekly update will make me come back to this broken POS game. Iron banner is not "Iron Banner". I will not be coming back to destiny unless they fix all the glaring issues that come with basic game development. I will say this, I did have fun playing regular crucible and I thought the PvP was decent. But the Iron Banner just put me over the edge for the exact reason the OP explains.
