It's not supposed to be an even playing field, that's the point in having better armor and better weapons. How can you not comprehend from Bungies own quote they "presented 1 thing and put out another 1" ("The way we pitched Iron Banner did make it sound like... In reality, we delivered") from their own mouths. So you know what developers go through to make the games even hu, how do you know? Again Iron Banner IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EVEN if you are 26 lvl's higher, thus all the complaining in the forums. If we were all to expect Iron Banner to be this bad from playing the beta as you say, then why is everyone flooding the forums with complaints. Maybe it's because they thought it would get fixed...possibly, maybe because they didn't play the beta...yea could be, or maybe BECAUSE THERE WAS NOT A 26 LVL DIFFERENCE TO IN THE BETA TO TEST THE ISSUE. I still say you can't calculate/know the outcome/severity of this issue only using the beta because you are missing variables needed to complete it. It has always been about destiny brother, how you take the comment is all up to you. Maybe you shouldn't have come out in the first place talking as though everyone should have known Iron Banner was going to be this way. It's like saying you should have known the story and all the characters already because you played the beta "not possible". I got one for you can you tell me now what is going to happen over the next 10 years in the game "all the story, all the characters, all the events"....according to your first comment we should all know considering we played the game already. You could have worded it different maybe saying "When I played Iron Banner in the beta I noticed it was not much different than regular crucible" or something like that.
Edited by DragonLTD: 10/11/2014 7:06:22 PMI worded what I said on purpose as I am dissatisfied with how the game came out. Lots of let downs for me. So what I said stands and your last bit there looks like you came to the same conclusion if I would have just used different letters on a screen. There a many other things I could say to defend what I already have said but what's the point. Sorry you felt I was being pretentious. And to add Bungie has said a lot of things that didn't quite come to fruition, so my comment was hurtful but could be viewed as justifiable.
Oh I also know a few developers, some have even worked on halo games, ya know? Wife is from Seattle.
Wife from Seattle, Wow you should be an expert on gaming because of that reason alone. So now knowing some developers that so called "worked on halo games" makes you know what developers go through? I know that when I go home I don't tell my wife, family, friends, or anyone else what frustrations I go through on a daily basis with our games. I don't tell them about the long meetings, the great time I have coding, or the fun I have when the test teams come back to tell me all the issues they found that now need to be fixed. Maybe I don't tell them because of the NDA or the fact that they don't care or just the fact that it's my job and I have to deal with it. It is common sense to NOT make the part of a game balanced that is NOT supposed to be balanced (AKA Iron Banner).
