(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

  • The problem with Iron Banner goes beyond the balance of levels as well. One of the biggest problems with it is that the losing team gets zero compensation for their efforts. Because of it, if you start out losing, or the other team seems to be a friendly fireteam, people on your side quit and run to another game that they CAN win. As a person who has few to no friends on the game, matchmaking is a bear, especially when 80% of the games end up being 6 on 2 because people leave. And what do I get for all of my hard work and dedication? A whole lot of nothing. Because one man, no matter how good he is, cannot solo a match against six others. Now I admit, I'm not the best player out there. I'm what you might consider average, and I do have some shining moments and some complete fails, but that should balance out. The mechanic of IB, like much of Destiny, rewards you for having online friends and being able to play non-stop. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE. Here's a little easy math I did: If you win a match, with the shader and emblem equipped, your rep increases by 30. From rank 1 to rank 2, you need 1200 rep. So, 1200/30 = 40 games I have to win. Simple enough. Alone, at an average of 11.5 min per game, I need 7.7 hours of pure IB to get to rank 2. Now, as a solo player and because of the mechanics and people dropping out, I win about 1 out of every 6 games. Which means I need 6 times the amount of games. In the end, I have to devote 46 hours to IB just to get from rank 1 to rank 2, which is absurd. I don't want to see what I need for rank 3...
