@vitor: I'm pretty sure you won't be able to do the raid successfully if you don't grind for 100+ hours. That's good design right there.

Yeah it's Level 28+

Well, now I'm confused. I'm sure I originally read somewhere that the first raid would be level 22, then over the weekend it surfaced that it would be level 26, now you're saying it's level 28? At this rate, it'll be at level 34 by the time it comes out and I'll never get to play the ghost damned thing.

The raid has 3 phases which you can do individually (though sequentially). The first is level 26 (but you can attempt it when you're lvl 25).

Oh, well fuck that then. I have no patience to go up 4 light levels. Also, I do worry that a significant portion of the raid will be reused content. Although there are a few areas in the game world that are weirdly barren so they could add stuff there, evenif I doubt there will be new enemies outside of some minibosses.

And yeah, the endgame is incredibly poor if they really expect you to repeat the (already minimal amount of) content that the game has just to maybe get a new piece of gear with one different stat. While I'm not a huge fan of borderlands, at least the loot was neat. Every piece of gear had like several different attributes that might be different.

Ya, you'll see a new experience bar under your profile. It isn't your XP 'till your next Mote of Light; it's actually your Light progress toward your next level--only increasing when higher ranks of Light-infused gear are equipped.

Well, I'm level 21, and matchmaking just made me play through the same two strikes 3 times each. I might be done grinding until the raids are out or they release new content. My Warlock armour is awesome, all black and silver, and no decent weapons are dropping past the endgame rifle. The loot lust is minimal.

I'm bored. The endgame is just replaying the stories/strikes with harder enemies.. So repetitive. Sure, I probably put in 20 hours since Tuesday but, man, I'm burnt out.

Well I'm an idiot. Just got to 21. Guess the light count just means your current 'actual' level and not the total amount of light you have. That's the progress bar underneath.

So, my light count has been at 20 ever since I got my first piece of light gear (which was a +7). I'm now 17 total and it hasn't changed. What gives? Do I need to level up the gear or is there something I'm missing?

Yeah, I watched the Purge video. I'm more interested in talking about Techies on the forums than just watching streams. I kinda did all that before I got here: not this guy's first rodeo and shit. I'm more interested in whether anyone has actually been successful using them.

Purge plays kinda poorly in that video. The only reason he was able to do any of that was because Slark was snowballing out of control. In a more balanced game, I feel like he would've had a much more difficult time. Ancients stacking is pretty cool, and good to know, since it's hard to farm with techies it seems.

Eh, Ancient techies, like ancient most heroes barring Tinker, is useless. Keeps you out of the game for too long.

Offlanne techies works great. Why? Because you can't be ganked. As soon as the game starts, run to the offlane, and mine all the gank passages. Stack mines on top of each other. It's a guaranteed kill and you don't need to worry about warding for vision. You can also mine just in front of the pull camp to be super annoying.

Then, just get levels, a soul ring, and rush ags.

Only ever put 1 point in suicide to deny enemies kills. And make sure to max stasis mines early as they're so damned good.

Turns out DOTA was just a fad. It's officially over guys, pack up, no-one cares anymore.

Last year's tourny was fun - especially well casted too. I'd be up for another.

@dudacles: Brazil have won all three prior games against Mexico in World Cups and have yet to concede a goal against them. They also won convincingly against them in the Confederations Cup last year.

Will be a fun game to watch but a massive upset if Mexico manage anything more than a draw. Then again, as a Brazilian, I'm maybe a little biased.

Also, Xbox One Controller drivers are out!

Seems like MS is doing quite the PC push. As someone who has no interest in a Xbox One for now, can't say I'm complaining.

Gosh darn, what a hard thread to come back to. Miss you duder.
