#2684840 What Are You Playing?

Posted by Jedi on 15 August 2016 - 03:49 PM

Back to Destiny for The Taken King expansion. They made this game so much better on so many levels with this update, i'm hooked right back in.

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!

#2683462 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

This guy will probably help this small market team grow some more. 

 

Preds really were the winners in this trade. For both on-ice and off-ice reasons.

#2682698 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

Posted by kickazz on 09 July 2016 - 11:39 AM

Lol at Z & Pav and not Feds/Osgood

It's a legitimate option because Z and D played entire careers as Red Wings while Feds and Osgood did not. It's not singling them out, it's a categorical option. Some people value whether or not a player dedicated his entire career to the franchise.

theres nothing about that I "like"




#2682077 Who do you have as the top 5 Wings of all time..

Posted by kickazz on 03 July 2016 - 01:42 PM

On topic..my list is as follows. 

 

1) Howe

2) Yzerman

3) Lidstrom

4) Sawchuk

5) Datsyuk

 

I'm torn between Datsyuk and Fedorov, I think I give Dats the edge for having the more complete all around game, but it's a difficult choice. 

 

I don't think it's that close between them to be honest. I think Dats just has the "WoW" factor because of his dangles. Truly Fedorov was the best player in the league for a good 2-3 years. 

 

Feds was a 50 goal scorer, had more than 10 game winning goals in so many seasons. He also had 31 short handed goals! (holy crap) And the fact that Bowman was able to put Fedorov on defense (where he did really well)  truly shows how good he was as a two way player. Also I think there was a time when Fedorov was one of the best faceoff guys in the league as well. 

 

Not to mention Fedorov was the fastest hockey player in the world for a long time. A lot of these factors are something Dats lacked imo. 

 

I think if there's any player that I've witnessed as the most complete player, my vote would go to Fedorov. However I'd rank Yzerman before him simply because Stevie was a better playoff performer. Which at the end of the day.. is what matters most.

Preview of the 2016/17 season:

 

Nielsen to Zetterberg to Nyquist.

Back to Zetterberg, over to Nielsen.

Fakes the shot, passes back to Nyquist.

He waits... passes it to Zetterberg.

I'm a fan of Matt Martin. It would be great to have a guy like that, even if we have a dismal season, at least he punches people in the face. That's something to cheer about.

And he hits everything that moves...To top it all off - if he rams an opponent hard into the glass, and it knocks/spills the fans' beverage - Martin has a tab, and ensure that fan will be given a fresh brew...Mind you this only takes place at home games.

Merged both of our Offseason threads, not sure why there were two. We can keep it all consolidated here. Carry on.

 

One was for the Wings moves specifically, the other was for all other teams
