May one be able to apply for the position to get first-time experience while already having the requirements of everything else apart from experience?
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

You're certainly welcome to apply! Prior experience is only desirable. Don't worry whether you're qualified - that's up to us to figure out.

Key resellers now let you gamble for game codes - pay £12.69 for a 50% chance at PUBGKey resellers now let you gamble for game codes - pay £12.69 for a 50% chance at PUBG

"If you buy two tickets, you’re guaranteed to get PUBG and a random game. "

Nope, it'll be the typical '50% chance of getting the game you want' for each ticket. I wouldn't be surprised if there's also computer math going on in the background to weight it towards the cheap no-name product.
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

The sentence I was working from is in the 'product active notice' section at the bottom of the Ts and Cs:


"If you add this product in your cart two times, you’ll get the product no matter what – and even get the complementary product as well."


The rest of the announcement is horribly written and unclear, so I totally get your scepticism :-/

I'm absolutely loving it (no experience of the first one). Personally I don't understand the shader controversy, got my inventory full of them, never missed any. The crucible probably gets bad scores because of the lack of options, it would certainly do better if players could choose what they want to play lol. At least the game mode. I'd give it 8 atm and with small changes 9.

Nice to hear some positivity :-) I do understand a lot of the complaints, but I have high hopes for the Osiris DLC.

Is this game.still relevant?

Hard to see why CA would revisit it if it weren't. Monthly concurrent peaks have been hovering around nine or ten thousand players for a year - that ain't bad.

Destiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fastDestiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fast
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

That's probably not true; power levels are unlikely to change until the first DLC, which isn't due until December - well after the PC launch. Obviously we'll update this once Raid and Trials gear starts dropping, but that won't affect the earlier stages of progression.


Edit: turns out it hasn't affected any stage of progression, because raid set gear is no stronger than Powerful Gear. You can get to the 305 cap through weekly Milestones alone.

And i saw people with a 305 Handcannon and 296 Powerlvl overall already (on PC)... i have no idea how someone can have so much luck in one week.

The season pass is £29.99 / $34.99. The expansions aren't available individually yet, but we would guess £19.99 / $24.99 each, or something similar.

Ouch. Maybe worth waiting year or two and maybe you get most of released dlcs with the game. Similar to ESO.

This is probably a bit hasty in fairness. Yes, it crosses a qualitative line into microtransactions affecting gameplay, but unless the impact of these mods is massive - which I doubt, given their descriptions - I wouldn't call it 'pay-to-win'.

An advantage is an advantage - big or small. And if there's a way to pay to gain that advantage over others - then it's pay2win, or at least pay2advantage

All of them should be - that's how it was in the original, at least. It's the strikes that are specifically designed for co-op play, though.

Yeah, I played the beta so we did the firestrike thing. I was wondering since the only campaign mission wasn't coop (I'm guessing it's the first mission?) I was afraid that the coming missions wouldn't be either.
