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
So here's what I got from the first video. Keep in mind, this is based off of the thoughts of a guy who only plays crucible when absolutely necessary. 1) you obviously know the good choke points and are very good at moving in and out of cover. 2) your team worked well together. You guys did a great job assisting each other. 3) you're obviously good at PvP. 4) Your lvl 4 did only a few less damage per shot to high level players with a white weapon than my lvl 28 does with (almost maxed) shadow price. Last night, the last two games I played in the crucible I had a K/D of 2 and then 2.5. The first few games were much worse. It took me some time to figure out that most people just rush an area and hope to kill via brute force. Once I learned to step back and wait for teammates, and then give myself some room to operate, I did much better. It seems like regardless of crucible mode (including iron banner), working as a team and playing smart are more important than weapons. I would have liked to see a bigger difference in damage, truth be told. It's hard to see a lvl 4 take on a lvl 28 with no discernible disadvantage.
