    Escalation Protocol is great, but they need to find a way to get 9 players together through matchmaking. Right now you have to get three different people searching for each other in an instance and then inviting the other 6. A solo player(myself) will not find EP very fun or easy to get a group to finish. Even if you get 9 people, and finish it, the guns after round 7 are a 5% drop rate.

    I personally think grinding for weapons is fun and I did a **** ton of it in D1. The difficulty is great as well. The problem is the event does not include an easy way of getting the proper number people.

    I think (hope) it will be doable with a group of 3 plus some randoms once everyone is close to max light.

    Seems like there about 4 of us in the Clan that are playing the new DLC. If we can get all of us on (or most of us) we can LFG for the rest. First raid is pretty easy now. We never ran the Osiris raid.

    Anyone else having fun with this game again?

    I really enjoy the grind even if it is a little wonky in terms of progression. They have a lot to iron out but logging and knowing that I have things to do feels pretty good.

    I've been playing a bunch on PC, mostly crucible quickplay. I do enjoy the new Mars patrol, grinding for exotic masterworks, the Ana Bray weapons, etc. I am looking forward to the new crucible labs at the end of the month.

    The drop rates on the masterworks are pretty infuriating. I've only gotten the Tractor Cannon. Really want the Crimson MW. Haven't done the 2 new raid lairs either. Most groups won't take someone without experience. Just like real world entry level jobs.

    I'm enjoying it, but i'll always play Destiny when there is atleast PVE stuff to do. Was invited to try EP with some randoms last week, it was fun but we weren't high enough level to get it done. I'm interested to see how 6v6 Iron Banner is.

    I don't have any gaming friends that play this on PC and over the last week I've met some pretty cool people from there. The PC crowd seems to be more relaxed than console. Just try and find matches that are labeled 'Beginners welcome' or start your own requesting a sherpa.

    Logged on this weekend for the first time in months, since I had already paid for the DLC (never buying the "big edition" of a game again... at least from Bungie). The story was actually fun and the Valkyrie is fun to mess around with, as is that Evacuation Protocol thing but... it's still a long way from being good. How much was it to purchase that DLC separately? Anything more than $10 and it's a flat out waste. Likely not going to bother trying for max power level this time.

    Every so often I think back on Destiny, how much fun I used to have killing Phogoth with my friends or when we used to go kill Crota. So much potential...
