    Also, I don’t see a single freakin reason to play crucible unless your LL 6 billion. I get killed in 1 hit and it takes me 2 magazines of 36 to kill a single person! I hate it. 321 stands no chance in there. Takes the fun out of it. I had the same issue with D1 until I got near maxing of LL for it. I’m not the greatest at it but still, I get 1-2 kills per match and die 10-15 times. I’m better off to a team just trying to stay alive and not hunt people haha

    Rant over...

    Not on PS4. But it happens every now and then. I got booted a couple of times yesterday but nothing major. Gambit seems to be the most unstable right now. After a match it's almost inevitable that one or two of us will get disconnected from our fireteam. So we just join back up. That seems to be the only real issue right now.

    Crucible is non level matched unless it's iron banner. You need better weapons ;)

    Ummm... level advantages are turned off in crucible. So it doesn't matter what level you are. Your guns do just as much damage as everyone else's. So it's not other peoples guns doing more damage to you because you do just as much damage to them. The only time level advantages are active right now is Iron Banner and when Trials returns. So once again... your weapons do just as much damage as someone that is 600 power level.

    So there are two things you can do. Get better weapons and get good. Practice, practice, practice. You're just getting outplayed right now. If it takes you two mags of 36 to kill someone your missing almost all your shots.

    Nah I gotcha. Little bit of hyperbole there but it’s frustrating when 1-2 shots with a pistol or shotgun kills me and I spent almost a mag on the person and they have a cm of life left.

    I still don’t 100% agree it’s evenly matched though. I think 98% maybe haha I get the weapons are “equal”.....but some pigs are more equal than others

    Well... hand cannons are three taps now. Shotguns you have to learn to counteract them. Radar is your friend. If you know someone is coming down a hall try to anticipate how long it will take them to get to you. Most shotguns have a 10 meter range give or take. If you are trying to go up against a rushing shotgunner with a primary like a pulse / auto you will lose every time if they close the gap. So you are just going to have to practice. Sidearms are a good counter but if someone is rushing you, you will have to back peddle to stay out of range.

    One other thing that I always do is I'll set down behind a wall at a corner and see who is coming and wait until they get close and shotgun the shit out of them. PvP is dynamic. You CANNOT stay on the ground and expect to win battles. Use your vertical space. Never go around a corner on foot. Either slide around the corner or be in the air. Most won't be expecting it (especially snipers). There is a lot to learn in PvP to be effective. It just takes time and practice. PvP is about all I play.

    I need to slide around corners more. That's been my biggest downfall, although I have gotten better anticipating a shotgun around the corner and I get mine off more often than not .

    If you are 321 you have access to weapons that can compete in crucible. You just need to find the ones that fit your playstyle. Pulse rifles are pretty much the meta right now for medium distances and sidearms / shotguns for close up battles. I use many different loadouts while playing depending on the map. Longer maps... Sniper / hand cannon. Medium maps... Pulse rifles and shotguns, sidearms, or hand cannons. Your heavy can be whatever you feel comfortable with.

    Every since gambit came out I just use the sleeper in my heavy. 4 rounds when you pick up heavy and if you're lucky you might find some laying on the ground. I can usually get 3-4 kills just with the sleeper alone not counting switching back and forth between my primary and secondary. I run Nightstalker 90% of the time to shut down supers so I know that pisses others off (which is the point lol). A well placed tether if I've got a nova warp WL chasing me is the most satisfying kill to get to me as that super is the most OP in the game right now because it lasts so goddamn long.

    Thinking about PvP a little more...

    Don't feel like you're alone in thinking you suck right now or the game is unfair. When I first started playing PvP in D1 I got my ass handed to me for a long time until I started watching how other people play that were much better than I was. Map knowledge is a HUGE part of being successful in PvP. Knowing where the other team spawns and what direction they may go will help you out. Sticking with your team is also key. That can be harder if you are playing solo but as long as you stick with one or two of the other people on your team it will make your chance of success much better than trying to run solo. Since D2 PvP is very much different than D1 PvP you have to really anticipate getting team shot so try not to place yourself in those situations. Sometimes that is impossible if the spawns flip and you get shot as soon as you spawn. But that's just part of the game and you just have to go with it.

    I finally got around to finishing up the Ace of Spades quest solo the other day and I went in with a hand cannon and used nothing else (and I mean nothing else). No primary or heavy. Just running around with the hand cannon to get my 25 headshots which can be a pain if someone else on your team is shooting the same target. The only matches I went negative in was when I dropped into 2 matches that were already in progress and supers were up and being used. Unfortunately... there is nothing you can do when that happens so you just have to bite the bullet (pun intended lol) and finish the match and see if you can get any kills.

    Here is the match summary of that day using strictly a hand cannon and nothing else. One match wasn't even played and it counted as a win but the other team dropped out so we didn't even get a chance to get a kill anyone. The ones where I went negative were matches that I dropped in mid match. If I can run around using nothing but a hand cannon and stay positive you will be able to start going positive once you start to figure out the flow of the matches and learning to anticipate what the other team is doing.

    [​IMG]

    PvP is hard in D2 but that's what appeals to me. I'm not a PvP god by any means but I can hold my own. Very seldom do I go negative. But I still have bad games because as good as you think you are... there is always someone out there better than you are. I used to get tilted pretty often and when that happens you might as well put the controller down and take a break. The more tilted you get the worse you will play. I don't get tilted anymore since most of the times when I have a bad game it's because of poor decision making on my part. Not that I'm getting outplayed (even though that happens from time to time).

    Use this time in PvP as a learning experience and you will get better I promise. The more you play the more it will make sense to you and you will be able to pull off plays that your opponent didn't see coming. Good luck in there :)

    I still suck at PvP, but not nearly as bad as when I started. I rarely had a positive KD, and I still go below zero but usually not less than 0.8. I loved the Ace of Spades, so I went after that as soon as I could. I was getting 3 or 4 headshot kills per round with the hand cannon, so it took me several rounds. BUT, I used to be lucky to even get a kill or 2, mostly with a lucky grenade. I thought that quest would take me forever, but I got it done without any help a lot faster than I thought.

    I've found that doing the PvE story things and other challenges on my own without any help improves my game. Lots of times friends want to jump in and help you get through it fast, but what I need is some patience and using my head -- I tend to Leroy Jenkins when I have good support. Getting through the stories and adventures fast is not what I want to do anyway.

    That's the difference between you and I ;)

    I want to burn through the story (which I don't care about honestly) and get to the endgame where all the good shit is. I'm sitting at 600 now depending on what weapons I equip. Now I'm searching for a few different pieces of armor that I can switch between during PvP depending on what class I run.

    The thing is... all the stuff you do in game leveling up really makes no difference to me. It's all the secrets at the end of the game that I'm interested in that you don't have access to if you haven't finished certain parts of the game. I want to finish the raid and get everything out of it etc... I'm working on the Redrix's Broadsword and the Luna's howl right now so that takes up a good part of my time. Add to that, I've barely even touched my WL and I haven't even logged into the Titan at all. I've been focusing on the Hunter and getting everything I can get on it.

    The loot is what drives me in the game and I want the things that 90% of the other people in the game don't have. Sure... I have plenty of time to play but it wouldn't change my playstyle if I didn't.

    I'm still happy with this in PvP. I'm leading the clan with the exception of one column which got surpassed the other day for longest kill streak.

    [​IMG]

    I still hold the best single game kills (and no... that's not Mayhem. I hate Mayhem)

    [​IMG]

    Longest single life. Never died during this match

    [​IMG]

    And I doubt that anyone will catch up with me in PvE activities

    Just checked my PvE kills and although it isn't completely accurate as it's only taking into account kills on my hunter and not my WL. It's still a lot of kills

    Depends on what mode I suppose? I would like to know how many Nightstalkers have as many kills on that class as I do? Unfortunately I can't find a site that breaks it down like that. So I have to go by total kills over all characters which I'm sitting at 3000 in the world right now. Nightstalker alone I would imagine would be much lower.
