    I originally thought Underground in D1 didn’t have matchmaking and you had to go in with squad formed from friends or inviting random people standing around in the little waiting room... buddy told me there was matchmaking though. If they made a waiting room type deal for raids I think it could survive without matchmaking. But without something like that they gotta add it. Especially since there’s supposed to be 1-2 parts where you have to split up a group.

    They figured out how to keep non-season pass holders from playing the classified missions. Thought we could back door into it by me starting it and then inviting people to join. Nope. Invite party to game? Nope.

    Is it not still “max attainable gear score” where it factors in the highest GS you “could have” based on all items in INV-Stash?

    I’m only 493 and getting 500 drops from all bosses and caches

    Only things build-wise that could have been fucked up we’re Bezerk and Unbreakable talents bc of attribute # requirements. Unbreakable was more of a commodity in the first place so replacing it with Unstoppable Force in the 3/7/7 build no problem.

    I’m down for this. And likely could get 2 more good players w mics.

    GF just left town and won’t be back until next Wednesday. Working from home tomorrow and off at 11c Friday with forecasted shitty weather. Hit me up I’ll light every goddamn thing I see on fire fore everyone. (Might be worth taking whatever type guns your build uses for primary and secondary, and find a good one of each to roll Ignited onto, ie - if you’re an AR/LMG guy then next time you pickup one of each of those that’s pretty good, roll on Ignited and make a “fire raid” loadout for stash). You can ask AIP playing with me and a lot of randoms I’ve played with entire waves constantly get engulfed. And AIP hasn’t even played w me since I got up to 12 ammo on fire starter.

    Could even go a step further and include a holster with Reassigned and gloves with Wicked.

    Gonna be on most of tonight trying to farm for a couple pieces of gear if anyone’s around

    Double tap RB/LB after firing ignites all of them that are out.
    You/enemy shoots cloud of gas (don't think teammate fire counts)
    Any explosion/fire, ie- red shootable object, nades, seekers.

    Enemies at higher difficulty dive away if you shoot close to them, 50/50 on being able to double tap before they get out of the radius.
    Pegging them with it almost guarantees immediate fire.
    Pro-tip from a pyro: get cluster seeker as other skill, throw that out as you walk into a room, see where they're headed and start pumping out rounds, seeker explosions hurt enemy + ignite fire and immobilize them. If close enough together one nade ignites all others within range. And if it's a tank/heavy just keep pumping them into him with a ~2sec interval and team shoots him as he does burningmandance.

    We were taking out named tusk tanks waaaay too easily on challenging yesterday using that strategy. Part of which I think is the whole "white shield icon" deal that tanks/elites have. They're basically immune to damage while the full shield icon is up. Only things I've seen turn it into a Broken Shield, where their armor takes damage, is destroying a red weakpoint, burning, or shocking. So if you're in solo and having trouble with that shield icon bullshit just kill everyone else so it's 1v1 and go RB>Fire>Y>Unload clip while broken shield, repeat.

    Base Skill power is ~1700. Have a couple gear mods that are +125ish skill power / +300 chem launcher power

    Think it’s around 2400 chem total enables a +5 ammo on the left and +4 on the right.

    The Destiny team (Goth, ProBro, Tea) are having a hell of a time with the boss they're at. Guessing they aren't too far into it. They said another team was at the final boss already, though.

    There was a mass Delta error about 2 hours after it was released. Luckily you have a "raid journal" that keeps up with what checkpoints you've made it to. The raid leader I believe can control the fast travel to the checkpoints... idk i was the original leader before the delta and rebooted raid at helipad officer and it gave us the option to travel to the room we were in before crash. We probably played for an hour before people had to start doing other things and disbanded. 3 from my clan, 3 from another, and 2 randoms.

    • matchmaking is a bitch everyone is spamming raid/XBL Party invites with a 2-6 spots full at helipad. someone on your team basically needs to hop out of the party into the other groups and see how many they need/have, it's the only way we got the other 3 to join.
      • Adding more people/changing specializations: At any point when your group isn't in combat (pretty much when you're inbetween battle scenes) you can fast travel through social menu "back to outpost" and then talk to the guy at the dock gives you option to FT to the BoO where everyone can change up their specialization if needed. There's a stash at the outpost if you only need that. To invite new people - the leader has to FT to BoO and go back to helipad agent's menu. Grab people > Resume raid. As long as the group hasn't started triggered the next rooms NPCs to spawn the new folks just jump right in.
    • First scene is tarmac that's got the enemy layout of a challenging/heroic end mission. Not that hard though with 8 people
    • Second scene - TBD goddamn that was tough
    There's a "puzzle" type scenario for room 2, which is the first boss of 5. We had a general idea of what to do but definitely not all the way figured out, I'm sure this is on reddit hopefully by now after people watched streamers. big square room. 2 turrets with 1/2 room range of motion each. 4 "shield nodes" that put off a blue circle that activates a forcefield on the NPCs armor when they're inside it. Each turret knocks out the nodes in the 2 corners on each side. Biggest tank enemy I've seen yet has some eye of Sauron thing and a puzzle type sequence for who can inflict damage when...

    Fun as fuck though with 8 people and chaos

    After 3-4 tries in that main room, I know I have some changes to make. Problem is the first scene was perfect for my build and 2nd one was worthless. Who knows what would be optimal for the next... however many conflicts there are.

    LMAO - as i'm typing this and watching one group figured out the final step, got the ridiculous process over, and then a surprise twist killed them all... amazing

    we figured out the majority of the first one. couldn't tie how the 4 laptops factored into the equation. put the streamerhouse twitch on my 2nd screen while doing some work and saw how to do the first few encounters. I'll put the strategies they used in spoilers individually

    4 laptops in each corner of the middle computer area. Screens on the outside of the computer area corners you gotta watch.
    Shoot out the 4 nodes - at some point the screens will flash up a/b/c/d and that computer has to be interacted with quick or all 4 nodes go back up.
    This is autonomous from the boss - they give a forcefield for NPC armor

    Boss - whoever has the red eye on their screen is the bait. he's fast and chases you. lead him to middle of one area where a big eye on the ground is - turret and everyone else light up the red box on his back til he drops = about 7-10 seconds of "DPS Phase" where everyone shoots him. He gets back up and repeat.

    Red box on his chest can only be shot by whoever has the red eye (we think) - whenever it starts glowing green the redeye player/maybe everyone shoot it or it heals him.

    Takes about 4 DPS phases to kill him if everyone's ready. Gotta take breaks at times for everyone to kill the "ADDs" (guess this is streamer talk for extra NPCs).

    Other ones I was only kinda paying attention and have a general idea...
    2 groups on opposite sides of planes have some nade heavy guys to fight. some computer panels light up and people on both sides have to interact with them simultaneously to get the plane to "join together" - not sure if you can beat them before the plane joins but once one boss goes down a gigantor spawns so this group killed them at the same time to focus on the 2nd boss spawn together.

    didn't get to watch this one bc I was busy but I heard people yelling orange and purple. orange is when you can shoot, purple he's immune. fuckload of ADDs

    Didn't see the next fight so no clue on that one. which is still ongoing so the spoiler only has the initial puzzle

    1 - 4 generators have to be charged at once by staying in each circle - when they hit 100 the big truck opens up and like 30 drones come out.
    2 - critical spot on the front and back side of the truck to shoot. opens up a hole where you throw in nades at the same time
    3 - opens up a panel on each end - each panel has 2 targets.
    4 - once all 4 are destroyed it opens up another panel on each side with a target for Damage Phase.

    Damage phase is limited time so looks like you should go 1 > 2 > 3 then kill 1 target on each end, and damage the other side on each end to where they're almost dead, let it close and repeat 1 > 2 > 3. because 3+4 are on one timer, so you want to start the timer with just a few shots left on the #3 targetsto trigger #4

    At some point in 3-4 phase a Heavy will run out from a door to one of the 4 corners, next to each generator is a missile launcher they try to fire. Kill them before that or it wrecks the whole group. I'm not sure if that's the only thing that triggers these missile launches or not.

    There's plenty of time to reset between cycles, gotta regroup and communicate

    Looks fucking impossible and I definitely need a new build. Offensive skills aren't that useful. Healer drone/reinforcer/revive. Need a good DPS build with an AR or SMG with LMG.

    User TLAU will you link your build websites again? My issue is I don’t even know how to go about getting the gear needed for a meta. I have made the mistake of selling everything so I’ve got no gear to recalibrate.

    Also, I saw people saying to shoot for a 5-7-7 base build. I can get like 5-7-6 right now, but not great perks.

    AIP the next group me and my buddy joined up with was their first time too. literally had to explain the entire scenario all over again.

    Once you get down the process of 1-chest, 2-nodes, 3-laptops, 4- turret to back and the group doesn't run around like goddamn chickens, it's not that hard. 2nd group we played with got him pretty far down in health but 2 of us froze up. If Massive doesn't remove the restriction to get back into the fight after a disconnect they can suck a dick. Once my game froze I rebooted D2 and was back reloaded in maybe 2 minutes. My guy could have still been alive... can't fast travel to group in combat. Fuck off don't penalize me because your game crashes.

    Happened when I was playing with yall too. with how painful the raid-invite process is they can't pull that shit when you get disconnected.

    Also finally caved and bought a keyboard and mouse setup. Only $200 was less than I expected. Looked into it pretty hard back in ~2012 for COD/BF. Ended up just scrapping the idea and stopped playing those games instead. Now that all of my friends are into shooters like ghost recon, Apex, COD, and division, I need to go back to when I was actually good at shooting things in games, which was on counter strike on PC
