  2. For those keeping score at home, the Red Wings have lost Landon Ferraro, Martin Frk, Andrej Nestrasil and Teemu Pulkkinen to waivers and have had zero return for them. Thanks a lot, Holland...
  3. Good times were had by all...
  4. BTW, Mabus, if you're still playing Destiny and are curious about the upcoming changes with Rise of Iron, the following post on reddit is very detailed and thorough...
  5. Saw this from the Red Wings facebook page, and thought I'd post it here. Newsworthy enough since we're in the offseason doldrums... (Because Mrazek hates and/or loves puppies)
  6. The hand cannons available today aren't what you likely remember from your previous stint in the game. They've undergone some pretty massive changes, including nerfs to range, damage dropoff, and carried ammo capacity. Bungie actually over-nerfed them pretty badly when TTK came out, but a couple of rebalances later and they're a bit closer to what they were, but still not quite "there" yet. Best exotic HC's are easily Hawkmoon or (if you're a Hunter) Ace of Spades. Personally, I've been a Scout Rifle user since about 3 days into the game. About halfway between Taken King and the April Update, they became the meta in the crucible too, with most users now using the MIDA Multitool (and for good reason, it's a damn fine weapon). A good scout rifle is pretty much a requirement for the King's Fall raid too, since 3 of the 4 boss fights take place at distances outside AR & HC range. Best exotic SR is the MIDA Multitool, followed by the Jade Rabbit and the Tlaloc for Warlocks. (Not counting the Touch of Malice, because while it is absolutely DOMINATING, it's only really feasible to use in 2 segments of the King's Fall raid, and that's about it). A user on Reddit went through and posted a breakdown of all available weapons from the vendors, and then followed that up with a breakdown of which of those weapons he would recommend. They're lengthy (full of details and stats), but well worth your time to read through, so you can hopefully find something that will fit your playstyle. At 297, one of the most loot-lucrative activities you could be doing is the Court of Oryx on the dreadnaught, and if you have 2 friends who are willing to carry you, the Challenge of Elders (will cost you 100 glimmer). At 297 you will die A LOT in Challenge, but if you can complete one run with a team score of over 30,000 (fairly easy to accomplish, even under-leveled) then you'll get a guaranteed legendary weapon drop. If you can rack up a cumulative score of 90,000 (which can be done in multiple playthroughs), then you'll get a guaranteed legendary armor piece to drop. These drops are all guaranteed to be at least at your current light level, and can go up to 5-10 points above.
  7. BTW, Mabus, If you're anywhere above 310 light, I'd strongly recommend playing in the Iron Banner event while it's going on. It's a great way to get good legendary gear for your character, especially since the drop rate was increased a few months ago. You don't even have to win, or even do good at all in the match, to get a great drop. Plus, since the game mode for this IB is Clash, it's easy to join in with a group of complete random players, and still do well. Last night I picked up the next to last piece I need to make my primary character hit the light cap of 335. If I can get a 335 ghost once I hit Rank 5 in Iron Banner, then I'll be at 335.
  8. The Taken King update was terrific, no doubt. However, the April Update (known lovingly as the Taken Spring) is where the game REALLY hit it's mark. (I've played Destiny pretty much exclusively since launch/vanilla, so I can easily say the game is at a point where it's the best it's ever been). The April Update eliminated the "Double RNG" for gear drops in the raid, and other end-game content. Previously, you had the first RNG, which was even getting a drop at all. Then the 2nd RNG kicked in, which was what light level the gear dropped at. You could get gear drops that were well below your light level, which caused many players to stop grinding to get to the light cap. NOW, any piece of legendary equipment dropped in the raid/end-game is guaranteed to be no lower than your current light level, and can max out at something like 5 points above. So there's constant progress towards your goals. I really wish you were on PS4. I'd be glad to run any of the raids or Iron Banner with you. Oh, and Rise of Iron is out in a little over a month. Things will only get better then. New missions, raid, strikes, gear, and (what I'm MOST excited for) the ability to choose what type of reward you get from faction level up packages! Woohoo!
  9. Rosemary Grace was born at 9:10am this morning, 8lbs 8oz and 20 inches long. She's absolutely perfect. Mommy and baby are both doing well!
  10. From Matt's text back to me (hope this helps)... "It's probably because his computer previously used OpenID to log in an that method has been disabled/removed because it is no longer supported"
  11. Per Aaron Ward... And Ansar KHAAAAAN!!!
  12. He may have a lot of things going on in real life that could be keeping him pretty busy. He's usually pretty responsive to my texts, so hopefully he'll be able to take a look at it soon. I'll do my best to follow up with him if I don't get a response in a couple of days. Sorry for the inconvenience that you're experiencing!
  13. I just sent a text to Matt to see if he knows what's going on. In the meantime, I'm moving this thread to the Member Services subforum. (edit) Apologies if you saw this as a deleted thread. Don't know why that happened, but it definitely wasn't intentional.
  14. Trade

    Terrific trade. Quite un-Holland-like. Which surprises me.
  15. Saw this and thought the community might be interested in this. Since it's one of the factors that contributed to me becoming a Red Wings fan, I thought it was best posted here. Why Cameron Frye Wore a Gordie Howe Jersey in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
