 The Last Word #100 ft MyNameIsBYF - Destiny 2 Lore, Trials Change, Fixes & Cheating Addressed, Seasonal Model Thoughts | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 10886

#TheLastWord #MyNameIsByf #Destiny2 This week was special as we got to celebrate out Centennial episode with MyNameIsByf. He is the the Lore Professor of Destiny 2 and we got to go deep into many topics with him, past, present and future for the story of Destiny. Next we get into the status of Trials.  Tokens have made some issues arise, Flawless Loot feels lacking and could use some changes as well. Cheating is an issue as well and went deeper into acknowledging which cheats they are seeing on both PC and console, and some fixes they can't fully explain to not help the cheaters. Finally we discussed the Seasonal model, how it works but isn't perfect and can still improve as we move forward. It was an amazing episode and couldn't have been more honored to have the Lore Professor himself celebrate our 100th. Thank you all!

 The Last Word #99 ft Mr_Ar3s - Trials Status, Pyramid Ship, Future Season Speculation, Guardian Games | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7731

This week we have a great guest Mr_Ar3s, a great community mod and does a lot of behind the scenes for the Destiny world. After that we got into a discussion about where Trials of Osiris is at right now and the thoughts of a pretty avid player from our guests. That led into the discussion of what could come next season and also in the fall with the Pyramid Ships slowing growing in number each week. Guardian Games launches next week along with other things and for the mid season update so lots to do come Tues.

 The Last Word #98 - Story Implications - Pyramid Ships - Next-Gen Destiny - GrandMaster Nightfalls | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 8456

This week we got started talking about the IO bunker reveal and the Zavala cut scene we got as a Bunker Clear. Zavala talked with Rasputin a bit more openly than usual and we get a projection and wall lights showing the looming pyramid ships coming close. We speculate the order of events that will be coming to the world of Destiny 2. We also get into what Destiny Next Gen (Destiny 3) could look like with the new SSD capabilities. We do dive into the Grandmaster nightfall reveal later in the episode and our thoughts on how this does seem to be a misstep in a few ways both the timing of the reveal, lack of earlier communication, rewards being lackluster and more.

 The Last Word #97 ft Man_at_Arms2112 - Trials Woes & needed Fixes, Hardlight meta thoughts, Bungie w/out Activision? | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7333

On the podcast this week we have our guest, Man At Arms, and this episode may have a bit more language in it but its a great listen. We discuss the state of Trials with regards to cheating, rewards, meta weapons like Hard Light, and its Longevity. We also discussed the idea that is Bungie doing a better job with Destiny 2 since the departure from Activision. Seasons and activities right now are light for PvE and Trials isn't hitting. It's an odd time in Destiny for sure. You can find Man_At_Arms in any of the places below: https://twitter.com/Man_at_Arms2112 You can find us here.

 The Last Word #96 ft CaptainMcFly - Moon Bunker, Trials Issues?, Hardlight Dominance, Future Subclasses | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 6979

This week we have CaptainMcFly join us to discuss first his history in shooters, gaming and esports which was quite interesting. Don't underestimate this Dad, he's likely a better shot than you are. We then get into talking about Trials and Hardlight both which are quite prominent on weekends in Destiny right now. The moon bunker was underwhelming and maybe we can get a crazier world in Destiny 3. Twab didn't have much but a small armor change is coming. Enjoy this episode.

 The Last Word #95 w/ Guest Brian Moncus Art - Destiny Art, Fourth Horseman, Trials, Season Pass, Iron Banner coming | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7433

This week we have an awesome Artist in the Destiny Community, Brian Moncus art of https://www.brianmoncusart.com/.  We first discussed his journey as an artist and how he has grown to be one of the key Destiny Artists in this community. Then we spoke out the journey to The Fourth Horseman new exotic Shotgun. The trailer dropped to spoil any possible surprise, and then we got to the quest. It was rather grindy but its really tough to ask for epic exotic quests ALL the time from Bungie as they are stretched fairly thin. Do you want less quality or more filler content, its a tough call. After that we got into the discussion of where Trials of Osiris is at and thoughts about its various rewards, errors and so forth. Iron Banner comes next week but we don't have much more than a couple new bunkers in the coming weeks. Guess its still on the wait and see mentality unless you are really jumping heavy into Trials.  You can find our Guest, Brian Moncus Art on twitter here: https://twitter.com/mrmoncus You can find us here.

 The Last Word #94 - Season of the Worthy Launch, Seraph Tower & Bunker, Grandmaster Ordeals & Trials of Osiris | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 6754

This week Lord Cognito and I discussed our thoughts and community rumblings regarding the Launch of Season of the Worthy. Is the grind a little to heavy, are the Power Level Requirements too high. Obelisks 2.0 and few weapons do limit the appeal to many players. Trials launched today so we will discuss that next week, but let us know your thoughts about trials and Season of the Worthy for you so far. You can find us here.

 The Last Word #93 w/ Guest Bobizard13 - Season of the Worthy Trailer - Rasputin Story, Power Level, Season Pass, Exotics | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 10510

This week we were joined by a great guest and pretty hardcore Destiny player, Bobizard13 who is the other half of the great YT couple of LaurenZSide. We discussed the new Season of the Worthy Trailer, the Season 10 story with Rasputin possibly saving us from the Kamikaze Almighty ship, and arming of the Warmind. New PvE activity include new Seraph Tower Public Events, Seraph Bunkers and even Legendary Lost Sectors. Later in the Season we will see changes to Pinnacle Gear drops as we get ready for Grand Master Ordeals as a new Endgame Pursuit. Trials of Osiris Returns for PvP as the pinnacle activity, 3v3 Elim and Lighthouse Visits to match. Lots of Exotic Armor changes are coming along with a new power level of 1000/1010 for Powerful/Pinnacle Respectively. Looks to be another cool season and we are very curious where this season will take us.    You can find our Guest, Bobizard on twitter here: https://twitter.com/Bobizard13 You can find us here.

 The Last Word #92 - Trials of Osiris - Directors Cut - Seasons - Retiring Weapons - Sandbox Changes | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 8645

This week we had so much news drop for what is coming in Destiny 2. Fractaline Donations were finished, we lit the beacon on Mercury and Trials of Osiris teaser trailer dropped about 10pm at night. 3v3 Elim Trials Connection based & card state match making, and through community feedback Artifact Power Level will NOT Affect PVP. Lots of positives here, the main thing needs to be good rewards and hopefully quick action on cheating. Then we get into the Director's Cut for Feb 2020 from Luke Smith. He discussed the changes they want to make for Seasons in Year 4 and the game world. And then of course the big topic is Retiring Weapons in Destiny and how long is the expriation date, and should exotics ever be included. Finally we cover sandbox changes about coming up for Season 10. Melee abilities and a few subclasses are getting reworked. Sorry the audio is off on this on, Cognito wasn't at home so we did the best we could.   You can find us here.

 The Last Word #91 - Osiris vs Rasputin, Major Sandbox Changes, Destiny Long Term, Loot Retention Debate | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 10436

This week was a great episode. First we discussed the new cinematic to tease Season of the Worthy where Osiris squared off with Rasputin on Mars. We aren't sure what is coming next or where the story is going. Next we covered the MAJOR sandbox changes coming with Season 10. Lots of changes coming to Izanagi's, Snipers, Grenade Launchers, Shotguns, Fusion Rifles, The Last Word Hand Cannon and more. Should be an interesting season..... THEN the debate started. We are in our third year of Destiny right now looking at the fourth coming up. I (Ebontis) am thinking some things need retired and Cognito would only see a "Destiny 3" as the time to start fresh. Its an interesting one, hit us up on twitter if you have an opinion about this one. You can find us here.

 The Last Word #88 - Corridors of Time Interview, Bastion Reward, Calendar Reveal vs Surprise | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7580

The Corridors of Time have been solves, and the whole community was about to contribute in small or large parts. We got a couple of gentlemen who were deep in the mix of getting this thing solved. Art Teams, Data miners, Streamers as figures to join for images. So many cogs in this machine, and Zycore and AetherLore were some pretty important parts to it. We got to hear from them about how they got into helping solve this thing. Some cool facts about the scale of the puzzle, the number of images that were received, and the struggles during the solving that they faced. This was a huge community moment and a great puzzle to solve. We also have the reward to discuss and we had some opinions about that and the fact it was a known an entity on the calendar and ended up being the reward.  I hope you enjoy this one.

 The Last Word #87 - Corridors of Time Puzzle, Community Effort to Solve it, The Future of Destiny | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 6253

This week the community dove head first into the Puzzle in the Corridors of Time which phase 1 alone took 19 hours to complete. After that we now are into part two, which sees everyone in the community submitting their final image of phase 1 to build a giant map of some kind to find the end game of the puzzle. I wonder if the community may be going too far or building puzzle as opposed to solving it. We also get into spoilers about what comes at the end of the maze and also where Destiny may go in the future. It was a fun one this week, I hope you enjoy. You can find us here.
