6 Things That Forsaken Could've Done Better

6 Things That Forsaken Could've Done Better

Forsaken is great but it could've done better

Back before Destiny 2: Forsaken launched I wrote about how I was worried about it. I made several predictions about what would come with the game. Some were right and some were, comically wrong. Now that the game has come and gone and was great, lets look back at what Forsaken did get wrong.

1. Variks didn't come back... sorta

Back in my first article I was worried that my favorite Fallen wouldn't grace us wit his presence. I was right to think that... sorta. Variks didn't make a return but he does have a whole lore book to himself. Its one step forward and one step back. I guess his lore book is better than nothing but I still would've liked to see the old warden.

2. Bows are a novelty

Bows were first introduced in Forsaken and people were very excited for them. I was worried that bows wouldn't be worth using because they would be bad or too hard to use. Fortunately they aren't too hard to use and can really make you feel like Hawkeye when using them. Unfortunately, they aren't able to compete with existing weapon types. Hopefully future updates will make them better but they are good little side distraction.

3. Matchmaking is a nightmare

Destiny has always had a complicated relationship with matchmaking. Iron Banner is as laggy as ever. Competitive is the biggest issue as of the time of writing. There have been several documented incidents of 5500 glory guardians getting matched up with ~1000 glory guardians. Recently there was a case of a level 7 guardian getting put on a team of 5400+glory players. Not 7 glory points, XP level 7, like not even finished the base campaign.

4. Gambit is in a tricky place 

Gambit looked so promising before release. Collecting motes, banking them, invading the enemy, all of that sounded great and looked like fun. It was fun for awhile, till someone used Sleeper while invading. That's when it all started going downhill. Snipers and linear fusion rifles have since dominated the invading side of the game mode. They made Sleeper harder to use but The Queensbreaker and The Crooked Fang took its place. The Ascendant Primeval is also another hot point. The "Meatball" is the source of a lot of frustrations of players seeking out that Dredgen title. Speaking of titles...

5. Titles are a sore spot

The titles were thought to be an awesome addition to the game, recognizing the hardcore players. However, that fell at the first hurdle. The Rivensbane title won't be available till January due to a bug. The Wayfarer title is stuck behind the awful process of getting the Braytech weapons. Chronicler is going to take forever because of the Truth to Power book. Finally Dredgen and Cursebreaker are trapped behind horrible RNG. Speaking of RNG...

The game has terrible RNG

RNG has always been a part of this game and it likely always will be. Rewards are RNG based. Well the RNG implemented is terrible. Many of the titles have at least one layer of it, two if you look at Dredgen. Exotics, the pinnacle of the rarity scale, are basically nonexistent for a large chunk of the player base.

RNG is ok if done well. To anyone who has played the game, they can tell that Bungie over corrected the RNG side. This RNG does not respect the player's time. It showers some players constantly while at the same time beating other players with the same crappy gun time and time again (12 Thin Lines in a row).

Forsaken is great in many ways, but it also has its issues. It's not "disappointing" as Activision calls it, but It isn't game of the year quality either.

10 Ways To Be The Girl Every Guy Wants

A comprehensive do-it-yourself guide to being the girl every guy wants.

1. Smile all the time.

Guys want to be with girls who are always happy. Men get severely uncomfortable when all the women around them are not Cheshire cat level elated all the fucking time. Why are you mad? Why do you look so pissed? Are you defective? Autopilot your brain to borderline creepy giddiness before men get the idea that you might actually be capable of a full range of human emotion.

2. Be smart.

Men want women to be smart, but never smarter than them. Don’t know or say anything too much about anything specifically – except sports.

3. Eat like a man, look like a lady.

How many burgers can you fit in your mouth at once? Better, even, how many hotdogs? Have the appetite of a grizzly bear, but eat like a cute tiny rabbit, or Kate Upton faking an orgasm. Oh, and never, ever get above a size 4.

4. Play video games.

No guy can resist a girl who loves to play video games (in her underwear). Fifa, 2K, Smash, Kart – know them all. If you can’t at least beat his worst friend at his favorite game, you’re not a keeper.

5. Love beer.

If you can’t throw ‘em back like one of the guys, you’re not wifey. Yeah, that Norwegian IPA no one's ever fucking heard of? You got it. Bud Light? Sure. Fat Tire? You love that shit. Feel free to let out that beer burp while you’re at it, but the burp you’d imagine a Japanese dwarf squirrel would let out after eating rainbows. Oh, and don’t forget, size 4.

6. Be a freak, but also a nun.

We all know that lyric (thank you, Ludacris, so much). Hit those yoga poses hard because he wants you to bust that shit out like you’ve done it before. But you haven’t … right? Have you?!

7. Keep him on his toes.

No man wants a woman who is predictable and boring. Challenge him. Keep him intrigued. Drop an F bomb every now and then. Learn a foreign language in your spare time so that you might give the illusion of being exotic in bed (Slavic languages sound super sexy). Induce yourself into an epileptic seizure. Whatever it takes to keep it interesting.

8. Have quirks.

Ah, quirks. The things that make people unique. The things that make people, people. You must have at least three of these but no more than five. Think relatable Stepford Wife.

9. Be hot.

This is potentially the most important, and luckily I don’t need to tell you how this works. Look at anything. Anywhere. That ever existed.

10. Never, ever get mad.

The worst thing you can do as a woman is challenge a man’s authority. Don’t talk back. Don’t think. Don’t have expectations. Sit. Roll over. Hold the bark.
