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 would just like to point a few things out. First, the Attack Power has no effect on the weapons ability to cause damage. This is only important in PVE. Your weapons Impact is what actually effects the amount of damage you cause. -The Attack power represents your ability to damage certain leveled opponents in PVE. You take the attack power divided by 10 and that is the level of enemy which you can do full damage to based on the Impact rating. (Example: an AR w/ 224 will do full damage to a lvl 22 opponent but will suffer a slight penalty against a lvl 23) Second, Everyone has the same amount of Health (base). In IB your Armor stat gives additional health which must be depleted also. Lower levels will have less armor equipped which leads to them dying faster than others in a direct fight 1 on 1. Third, In your videos (yes i watched both) rarely are you taking on an opponent directly 1 on 1, most of the time the other players are not shooting at you or are using a Hand Cannon or Scout Rifle (and missing a lot) so its hard to compare between damage output based on level. But when you are in direct 1 on 1 you get wrecked. Finally, I am not a fanboy or anything like that for Destiny. I am in fact, deeply disappointed in the game. What we got as an end product is in no way, shape, or form of what was originally presented to us or which was awarded so highly. (But that's a whole other topic) I can, however, see an alternate side to the IB. Sure it sucks for all those people who spent the time acquiring the best gear. But in absence of having a dedicated lobby for certain leveled/ ranked players, being a low level character like 4 or 6 and trying to partake in the event with level 20+ players and not being able to get cause damage would have been more of a nightmare than what Bungie did deliver us. For everyone to be able to compete in the event is what I think Bungie were trying to do. Do I think that they severely miscommunicated the actual setup for the event? Absolutely. Do they need to fix it? Absolutely. Instead of making it like PVE where player 4 levels above you are immune to damage, there needs to be a tier system where when you join a game you are matched with other like level players. Only then will Iron Banner actually work the way it was advertised.
