    Finally, one of my favourite video game events returns, albeit with some changes

    Begins: October 10, 2AM Pacific
    Ends: October 17, 2AM Pacific

    The game is Control.

    What’s different?
    Combat will be between two teams of four players
    Your fighting abilities, not your power levels, will decide the outcome
    Bounties and Ranks have been replaced with an Iron Banner Engram

    How can you compete?
    Complete the Destiny 2 campaign – the only way to reach the Tower
    Visit Lord Saladin in the Tower to begin the Iron Banner Quest
    Fight in the Iron Banner playlist with Quickplay modes and matchmaking

    What’s in it for you?
    Earn Iron Banner Tokens in every match (earn more if you win)
    Daily and Season* Milestones that track your progress to glory
    Claim brand new armor wrought in the forges of the Iron Lords

    That armour is gorgeous. Best looking armour in game, for me. Clearly influenced by Samurai warriors. May now have a reason to get the 3rd character through the campaign.

    We can now all look like Samurai's. Great looking gear sets all round.

    This is quite good imo. You can go on some pretty soul destroying loss streaks playing solo. It all seems to balance out in the end but when you've lost 5 in a row you question the sanity of it all.

    For once I prefer the warlock to the titan, but whats with all the fur. Hopefully the guns will be good too.

    That gear looks pretty nice!

    Maybe we can kiss and make up Generic and run PvP teams.... you know... on Tuesdays and Wednesday nights :p

    Erm.... Weapons?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,870 ✭✭✭✭ Generic Dreadhead


    Erm.... Weapons?

    You already have some weapons.
    Iron Banner is about finding new and exciting ways to use them.

    ....by playing normal control?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,781 ✭✭✭ PetKing


    The gear is savage! Warlock gear above (and in general throughout D2 dare I say) is fantastic.

    I hope that's there's enough incentive with the token system to keep players in games and not quit at the first signs of defeat.

    I need to run through with my Hunter too :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 648 ✭✭✭ SeanHarty


    the thing I think I like most about the titan armour is that he has shoulder pads that are cool looking and fit the bill in what a titan is supposed to be but there stupidly big like a lot of the armour seems to be...


  • Registered Users Posts: 853 ✭✭✭ DeadlyByDesign


    This could not have come at a better time for me. I am gonna ding 20 tonight, and mrs is gone on holidays for 2 weeks. I will need to have the controller surgically removed. That armour is amazing looking

    Really loving those titan gauntlets.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,470 ✭✭✭ SolvableKnave


    New map being added for IB. Distant Shores. Will be in all playlist once IB ends.

    Pulse with the Striker sub-class that gives you another?

    Edit: I somehow read "gauntlets" and it translated to "grenades" in my mind, hence the confusion.

    Can you use Irob banner to gear for raid? No idea on the light levels for it etc


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,781 ✭✭✭ PetKing


    Has anyone played IB yet? Is it live on reset or 6pm? Curious to know is there a separate milestone for powerful gear.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,870 ✭✭✭✭ Generic Dreadhead

    You can use anything to be perfectly honest, even blue gear

    Sorry potatoed my question, what I meant to say is will it get me to the light level needed? But cool if you can even use blue gear to get to that number

    Almost any activity will get you there. The Raid is 260 -> 280. Blues from anything will drop all the way up to 265.
    Only once you hit 265 do you need to alter course. At THAT point you want to focus on your Milestones, particularly Powerful Engrams that you get from Milestones and Clan stuff.
    Essentially, just keep playing the game and you'll be fine. Once you hit 265, focus Milestones and the 4 Blue Quests on each of the 4 planets

    For after you hit 265, have a read of this...

    First IB game, slaughtered by a clan

    Second IB game, join in halfway through being slaughtered by a clan. 3 of us for most of it, felt like we were being spawn camped

    Third game, mixed teams, we basically do laps of the map capturing flags and not really seeing each other. Lost by one point I think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 853 ✭✭✭ DeadlyByDesign


    Whats really the point of IB if the level advantage is gone? Was that not its selling point in D1? I'm not getting the pitch here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,394 ✭✭✭✭ gimli2112


    I thought the real selling point of IB was to level up but that's not really here in D2 as there's a lot of ways to get to 305. I mean if I'm getting destroyed by clans every second game it will lose it's allure pretty fast.

    You guys just wouldn't understand it...
