(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

    • God damn it dude....Destiny had so much potential. This is just another friggin deception just like Queen's Wrath was. Why lie, Bungie? Just...why? We're just disappointed all over again.

    • I wonder if you get an Artificial Defense Bonus and Damage Buff for being a Low Level. Im surprised he is killing them so fast and not dying. I get mowed down in 4 bullets from people and usually have to dump my clip into them to hope to get a kill. this video makes it seem so easy.

      • You're wrong. Iron Banner does make a difference but not to the extend so your level 30 Guardian will be carried only by gear and level difference. Which is good because I want low levels to have a fighting chance.

        • I've found that Iron Banner has some noticeable differences. While the difference in gear/level may seem non-existent, I've noticed myself doing much worse in my IB matches than in the Crucible. My theory on this is that the level tweaking has just enough of an effect for grouped enemies to team shot me with great ease. This caters to defensive play, as well as strategic coordination with a fireteam. I'm a very offensive player who tends to lone wolf it in most situations. I definitely go down much quicker in IB when I attempt my usual crucible strategies. This forces me to play defensively which has shown some improvements on my end, though the real advantage goes to whoever has coordination.

          • Was the other team sleep-walking? Power or skill was certainly not in their favor, not at all. That team appeared to have me as a participant on their side and that could not be since I avoid Iron Banner and Crucible like the plague. You just had a glimpse of my world. Or, maybe I just had a glimpse of why my k/d has been abhorrent in those matches? There certainly is room for a lot of questions. Bungie and Activision, the past can hurt you. Destiny is full of promise to become a huge success when much more time and effort is put into expanding story. That is your true Destiny.

              • I've actually been having tons of fun in the Iron Banner. I enjoyed it in the Beta as well. I really want my Iron Banner Titan mark back, so I can wear it everywhere, forever. No, it doesn't really feel different from Crucible in any noticeable way, but for some reason I do enjoy it more. I appreciate that I can kill 30s and 26s can kill me despite our level differences, but that's basically what standard Crucible offers. My personal enjoyment aside, it does seem like it's not exactly working as advertised.

              • guys hold on a second just think of the explanation were going to get im thinking something like oh we couldnt make you op because we wanted to give other players a chance i think that would just contradict the whole point of iron banner! i just want to hear what they have to say to cover that ass!! this game started ok and it just keeps getting more bad i really liked the game like many other people when we first started playing it but like the first week after having the cryptarch give you legendary engrams that just turned blue all the time then bungie making a joke about it that just let the players know it was shit and a waste of time basically if they would of made more of a rewarding system they wouldnt have had to make all those hot fixes and patches! and that random drop shit they got OMG! i was watching a stream one day and they were talking about some AFK method on rumble so i looked more into it and it was players going into a pvp rumble match and not even playing they would tie rubber bands to the controller sticks so the avatar would move and not get kicked from the lobby to get rewarded with stuff and it was working so here i am at home just thinking to myself WTF this has to be a joke! but no not on destiny the good players dont receive crap but the bad players get stuff and sometimes the good stuff and by not even playing the -blam!-ing game! but hey good gear cant even save your ass in iron banner!!! WHAT WENT WRONG BUNGIE?

                  • Just for comparison purposes could you get the same team to take that warlock with the starter gun into a idk 24 strike and just show the stark contrast in how jacked this event really is.

                  • Welp, I walked into iron banner on my lvl 3(now lvl 4) titan. Lost the match but walked out top of my leader board on my team. Mind you I'm rocking around a .8-9 for a K/d average. So I'm not too skilled but that was sad

                  • I just like how you used the starter rifle which is possibly the weakest gun in the game and yet you still wrecked a bunch of Lv 20+. This is just sad, lol. Bungie, fix this.

                  • I'm going to agree with everything the OP said. I was actually going to make a post of my own but I saw yours when I first clicked on "Forums". I've been damage testing the BS that is called "Iron Banner" or should I say "Iron Crucible" since there really is NO difference. I've been rocking the Legendary Shadow Price for a long time now and once I started Iron Banner, I was curious as to what my damage output would be. So I began keeping track. When I first started my Shadow Price was upgraded until the last 3 Attack Upgrades (274 I believe) and I do 32 damage on a crit at level 28 against 28-30 and even those who were lower. So I decided to finally upgrade some damage and make myself a level 29 by putting on an Exotic Headpiece. So one after one upgrade followed by another to reach Attack 300, my Shadow Price STILL does 32 damage to the head on ANY CLASS, and ANY level. So what is all this hype over Iron Banner and level advantages? Nothing...just a fancy name with more pointless gear that can't even get you to Light 30. I decided to do another test, since while playing I ended up dropping a Rare Painted Suros with the buff that allows me to do more damage while aiming down sights. (Same buff as the current second most OP gun in the game. Suros Regime) I used one bounty on it to unlock my buff and back into the crucible, sorry, Iron Banner and low and behold, I now do 39 damage to the head while aiming down sights! But wait a minute...This gun only has 224 attack. Its so much lower than a fully upgraded Exotic or Legendary such as my Shadow Price...why is this number so high? I decided to upgrade it a little bit more...sure enough, still doing the SAME EXACT DAMAGE. So Bungie, please as the OP says in his video. What on earth are you thinking? Who is in charge of the math and damage algorithms used in multiplayer? This game just continues to be broken on so many levels. And we haven't even began talking about the Vex Mythocast.
