Midland Base Weekly Update September 15th, 2014


Going to be a short update this week.  Most folks are already playing Destiny already whether on Xbox 360 or Xbox One.  There are a couple things to go over in Destiny and Midland Base but no new news from 343i this week.  So let us begin.


343i - Halo News

Nothing new this week.  Stay tuned next week for some news about Halo stuff hopefully.


Bungie News

Not much from Bungie this week either but it was launch time so it was to be expected. I hope you all are enjoying the game as much as I am.  I have a level 26 Hunter with 3 Legendary armor pieces and one Legendary weapon.  If you see me on feel free to just join up without invitation.  Also there wasn't much significant news in the Bungie Update but you can find it here none the less.


Update 1.0.1 Patch

Right off the bat Bungie had an update ready to go before you could play.  A lot of the changes made were to make the game play more even.  Some of the feedback they got from the beta was implemented.  For full list check out the official post.


Destiny Events

Some of you may notice that not everything is unlocked yet.  This will change very soon.  The "Vault of Glass" raid will be available to those with the item level to do it.  The raid is a level 26 raid so if you stand any chance of doing half way decent job you should be level24 or higher.  Here is the list of events unlocking over the next while.



Remember you will need to grab your own team for the raid as there is no matchmaking for this playlist but rewards are supposed to be amazing.  I can't wait for Queen's wrath, I really hope that means we get to check out the reef some more.  


Midland Base News

Leaders Wanted

Destiny is finally here and we need your help to make sure it feels welcome here and Halo doesn’t feel like we are leaving them for someone younger, its not like that Halo, we promise.  We need leaders more now more then ever to help keep this group great.  Are you willing to help us keep this group fun?  Sign up here and get started.  Make sure to read the requirements before committing to the awesomeness.


Member Spotlight

Are featured member this week is none other than ChickenMnkyDuck.  Duck as she is affectionately called, is a close personal friend of mine and is 1/2 the reason I joined Midland Base in the first place (the other half being her husband FunkyChickenLvr).  If you have not played with her yet you are really missing out.  So jump onto Destiny on Xbox One and join her, tell her TurboDew sent you.  Congrats Duck!


Grifball

Grifball is officially on hold right now.  We hope that it will be back up later and that it is not lost forever.  But we will have to play it by ear.  Also to the members who were in grifball, be aware, without a team there is no need for medals so grifball members will be without until it starts back up again.



Midland Base Clan

We have a clan at Bungie and need you to go and sign up for it.  It’s a very easy process and will show all those other clans you are proud to be a Midland Base member.  To find out how to join, check out the official thread.  Make sure to do it sooner rather than latter, no one likes a procrastinator.

Featured Forum

So I again feature the entirety of Destiny thread.  With the game freshly out of the box, make sure you head here to let us know your opinions of the game.

Make sure to check out our event calendar to see all the changes.  Since Destiny dropped, we are getting a new night (or rather an old night revitalized) and some game days that were Halo may now be in Destiny.  Also make note as to which console it will be played on.  Don’t see your console supported?  Join the leadership and start hosting!  We are waiting for you.

Midland Base Weekly Update September 8th, 2014


I am back from my mini vacation and with little time to prepare for Destiny which is less then a day away, and depending on when you read this, it might already be sitting in your console ready to go.  This week both 343i put out a tone of news in preparation for Halo: MCC and Destiny alike.  There are a lot of videos as well and so you don’t have to go looking everywhere for them, I will make sure most end up here for easy access.  So let’s hop to it.  Also here is some music to list to while you read.


343i - Halo News

Halo Bulletin

343i was at PAX Prime this week and was busy showcasing Halo: Nightfall, Halo: MCC, and Halo Channel this week.  We start with Halo: Nightfall, the new Halo series that seems to be set up like Halo: Forward Unto Dawn.  They have let a little more knowledge about what to expect go in this short behind-the-scenes look.



So it will be a quick recon to find out what is going on before time runs out and they are all fried eggs sunny-side up.  No pressure.  What secrets could this soon to be destroyed piece of Halo have in store for the intrepid heroes.  We will have to wait to find out.


They also released some remastered sounds from Halo 2: Anniversary.  The music is getting remastered to sound even more amazing then the original (which for the record, was my favorite soundtrack to any of the Halo series), as well as the weapons getting finely tuned.  While on vacation I went to the firing range with my sister-in-law and her husband who is a firearms instructor.  So having this as a fresh noise in my head, listening to the remastered weapons fire, sounds a lot more like the real deal.



One of the new featurettes you can expect from the new Halo Channel is new maps walkthrough.  Bravo was giving us a little taste as to what he has planned for showcasing new maps while simultaneously giving us a more in depth look at Lockout.  One of the coolest deals I saw was falling stalactites you can shot down on top of your opponents, be watch out, they are not forgiving so make sure you and your teammates are out of the death zone before shooting them down.



One last thing to mention is that Halo 2: Anniversary will have forge and have some awesome improvements to the process.  To see the full list of changes make sure to check out the Halo Bulletin.


Bungie News

Destiny is just a few short hours away and I am excited.  I will be taking a nice nap up until the time I need to head out and get the game so I can enjoy it as soon as I get home.  So that is it, no more news to be had, I am done… or am I?  


Destiny Live Action Trailer

With no time to spare Bungie and Activision released the new live action trailer for Destiny and I loved it.  Although there is little live action as most of it requires heavy CG there is something always cool when they use real actors in costumes with the CG work.  I loved the look of the titan’s Fist of Havok and being as I will mostly be playing the hunter, the blink with grenade drop made me envious that I would never be able to do that in real life.  Check it out and let us know what you think of it here.



Those of you who are wanting to rock Destiny to this song but don’t know who it is, the song is ‘Immigrant Song’ by Led Zeppelin.  One of my favorites.


Destiny Planet View

Even though the wait is almost over to go exploring the Destiny world, if you have some time to kill you can head here to see Mars, Venus and the Moon with some lore mixed in.  If you expire everything you will also get this sweet emblem.  You will receive a code you can redeem on you bungie.net account, and while you’re there make sure you join our group and clan.


Open House

For those of you in the area or can get in the area, Bungie is opening their doors at the Washington Headquarters at noon today (9/8/14) with cool prizes and possibly even a tour of their facility!  Man I wish I lived anywhere near Bellevue.  Those of you who are near enough make sure you seize this very rare opportunity.  Make sure to take lots of pictures and say hi to DeeJ for me.  For the details check out this post here for the skinny.


Bungie Weekly Update

There is a lot of good news for those who like getting rewards.  Bungie has just announced some more emblems that will be available to those who meet the requirements.  Along with the one you got for playing in the Beta if you were able to during the Saturday event, what seems like ages ago, here are a few more and what you need to get it.


Shield of
Heroes
  Once reached Heroic forum status
Shield of
Legends
  Once reached Legendary forum status
Shield of
Mythics
  Once reached Mythic forum status
Song of
Spheres
  Participated in the Alpha Lupi experience
The Inner
Chamber
  Played at least 4 of the last 6 Bungie games
Pathfinder
Sign
  Registered on Bungie.net prior to 2013
Star of
Moderation
  Bungie.net Ninja
Mentor's
Badge
  Bungie.net Mentor



There will be plenty of in game emblems if you don’t qualify for any of these so don’t fret, there is still plant of items out there you to obtain.  


There is also a nice Q&A with Luke Smith and Tyson Green about end game content.  For most of us who are used to Halo, end game content really only consisted of PvP or Multiplayer Matchmaking.  Destiny is trying hard to really expand and allow you to have something to do no matter what mood you are in.  I welcome this.  I am not always in the mood to fight other players I just want to play some PvE and with exploration, story, strikes and raids I will have more than my fill for other times I will have fun playing some PvP with you all.


Even though the level cap seems to be 20 this is not the end to your leveling, they have what they are calling "Light Level” which will reflect the upgrades to your specialization progress as well as you armor and weapons.  You will also be able to level up with different factions unlocking rewards such as better armor and weapons.  Choosing which faction you want to back will be based on what rewards are available so you might be  wanting items that add more Discipline so you will choose the faction that gives you armor with the most Discipline.


There will also be modifiers added to certain strikes and story missions such as "Heroic” and "Arc Burn”  this will add some challenge as well might help you out.  As a Hunter your Bladedancer will increase in damage but so will your enemies Arc damage abilities. 


So much more was discussed so head over to Bungie and read the rest there.  One more thing I will mention here is when Vault of Glass will be available.  Since you won’t be level 25 day one Vault of Glass will be available September 16th, 2014 to give you time to get yourself up to level 25.

Midland Base Weekly Update September 1st, 2014

Hello folks and happy Labor Day to all you state side.  Everyone likes a three day weekend and what better way to celebrate then a weeky update by yours truly.  Some good stuff announced this week.  Another Halo 2 map facelift is announced, some mystery behind the new raid system in Destiny was unveiled, and I get cold water dumped on my head.


343i News

This week has shown us some cool stuff going down in Seattle.  Another map from Halo 2 gets the anniversary polish, the next comic is available, and bikers everywhere have hope for being augmented road warriors.


Lockout

For those of you who played Halo: CE you might remember the early days of SWAT, for my group of friends we called it pistol and was all about the devastating power of the scoped pistol and no shields.  No matter what you might have called it, SWAT has been one of my favorites from the start.  In Halo 2 we got the Battle Rifle with pistols to enjoy the game type and one of my favorite maps to play it on was Lockout.  This is a very fun asymmetrical map that many have loved to the point where there were remakes in Halo 3 and Halo Reach. I also remember the CTF games where you would jump from the top of the lift down to the bottom ramp cutting down half the map.  This is a fantastic map and should be a lot of fun to play again.





Halo: Escalation #9

For you fans of Halo lore the new comic is out.  This is the second part of "The Next 72 hours.”  A continuation of what happens to the chief after Halo 4.  I would include images but that would be major spoilers.  So if you want to check out a few pages to wet your appetite, you can fine the pictures here.


Master Chief Helmet

It seems car owners have all the fun putting decals to show their love for their favorite games for all to see while bike owners are left high and dry.  I myself have the Destiny Tricorn on my car.  So want to show off your love for Halo while riding your bike?  343i has been working with NECA to make all your dreams come true.  They are working on a Mjolnir motorcycle helmet that Frankie was nice enough to test out and show all of us.  The helmet is not ready for mass production yet (2015 release is what they are saying) but it is coming along.  Personally it is a little to bulky for my taste but I am sure this is going to make a lot of folks out there very happy.



Bungie News

Bungie has let out some hints as to what to expect as far as raiding but only a little bit.  They also released some panorama scenes from their advertising, one I am currently rocking on my Enjin profile.  Unfortunately no Mail Sack this week though.



Weekly Update

With Destiny a week away it is no surprise that there has been advertisement out there but someone took a snap shot of what looks to be a subway Destiny mural.  




They put the advertisement panorama up on there site for those of you who want them.  They look incredibly epic and I have, as previously stated, found good use for one of them already.  If you want to download one yourself just click on the pics below and get to it.






They also teased some facts about raids.  Some people where worried about the prospects of long hours raiding just to open the door to the raids and not being able to put in said long hours.  Although yes it will be initially long the more we play and learn the quicker things should workout  during raids.  Raids and their mechanics are no new news for PC MMORPG gamers but this seems to be something entirely new to FPS gamers.  At least I haven’t seen any console titles that have this kind of end game feature, though I don’t have many games outside of Halo.  The long hours are not in fighting through wave after wave but more of discovering how to open things and how boss mechanics work.  


What are boss mechanics?  I don’t know how specifically they do this in Destiny, but these are things other than point and shoot to take down bosses. In MMORPGs this can be anything from stand here to keep everyone alive to everyone must do XYZ to take down defenses of the boss.  That is where the long hours will come in, finding out how the mechanics work.  Once we know it should be easier but still require a lot of coordination and teamwork.  


This may put some people off from doing raids but the promises of loot that only drops in those raids may be enough incentive for most.  If you don’t feel like learning these on your own I am sure it won’t be long before there are plant of walkthrough guides on the internet to take the guess work out of it for you.  I hope to add some of my own if I can find the willing participates here at Midland Base.


Midland Base News

Leaders Wanted

With Destiny a week away we are in need of leaders.  We will be fully supporting Destiny and will continue to support Halo.  However with the limited number of leaders we have now the choices for what games will be played during Game Night might change and go by the way side.  It is up to the leaders to decide in which game they will play.  So if you want to make sure the game you want to play gets the attention you think it deserves or if you just want to help make sure this group stays as awesome as it is, please volunteer here.  Make sure you give the responsibilities a good read to make sure it is something you will be able to do.



Grifball

The Grifball team is still very much alive and it is more fun then ever. It is a lot more fun to go into matchmaking having a team that is all talking to each other and having a good time. We need your help though. The more people who join us, the more fun we can have. If you feel like smashing some peoples heads in with a Gravity Hammer or Would like the opportunity to craft you skill as the Grif, running the ball in and scoring the "touchdown" as it were then join up. If you are terrible at Grifball but want to enjoy playing on a team (like me) I assure you skill means nothing to us, just that you have a fun time, please join us. We still meet every Friday and you can join in Friday game night right after. And you still get some bling for being on the team. If you are interested then sign up here. Two practices a month nets you the sweet medal.



Midland Base Clan


There is still plenty of time to sign up in our Bungie.net clan. We have room for all of you there. This will be the way we do official Destiny game nights with both Crucible and Raids. To sign up and get help check out this thread and make sure you sign up before September 9th. (note: you can sign up after September 9th but you will not be able to play in official Destiny game nights without being in our clan). If you sign up before 9/9/14 and you played in the beta you can get this sweet bling for your war chest.



Member Spotlight

I made a big boo boo in my haste last week to post the update last week.  OUTLAWs BOUNTY was featured last week which was for his exceptional attitude he has presented since joining only three weeks ago.  Good on you mate.


This week we honor BattleBug85 for all the tireless work she does around here.  From making sweet emoticons like this one , to making sure our caption contest looks awesome.  She does that and so much more.  How can you help her for all that hard work?  You can help her by adding some more sweet screenshots for said caption contest here.  Please do it, the well will soon run dry.


Ice Bucket Challenge

I told you guys Thursday that I had been challenged to do it, although I did not post the video within the 24 hour mark I assure it was done on time I chose to hold of on posting the video so it would be fresh for the post.  I called out my dad, a friend, and the rest of my fellow Leaders.  Yes, yes, Midland Base leaders you have been challenged.  So Dredd1973, Ec1ip53, Silient Hit86, BattleBug85, Poetepoet, and Chipk77, balls in your court.  And if you allow me, I will show off your videos in next weeks update (that is if they agree to let me show them).  For now, here is me, and yes the water was very cold.

Midland Base Weekly Update August 25, 2014



Sorry for the long delay folks.  I was well under the weather but am fine now.  Rest assured I will have the next update up on time.  Lots of great news this last week with videos of new horizons, pictures of mysterious foes, and a ghost gets the Ice Bucket challenge.  



343i News


Not much in the bulletin as far as new news more on the Halo: MCC and Sanctuary. As well as the finals of the first Halo 2: Anniversary tournament.



Halo Bulletin

Well the winners of the $5000 top prize was not one of the teams who fought their way into the tournament but a team that was personally invited by 343i as well as 2nd place.  I have my own thoughts on this but I will save you from my personal opinions here.  So congratulations got to team TCM.  If anything else it was great to see old Halo 2 back in action and with a gorgeous facelift.  Check out the finals to see some great views of the new maps.



There was no entry from Midland Base to win the screenshots of the week but I am including one I loved and all you Red vs Blue fans should enjoy as well.


Titled: Why are we here? by ComicBeast1212


Very clever.


Bungie News

This week Bungie added 2 more videos, one taking us to Venus and one in Destiny Launch Gameplay with a very interesting tidbit I missed the first time, and Bungie Bulletin with some great mail sack questions and answers.


Venus

In stark contrast to the deserts of Mars and barren moonscapes, Venus looks to be a lush tropical world fild with exotic plants and the terrifying Vex.  This looks to be more of jungle warfare that looks very inciting to me to explore.  Get a look for yourself.



Launch Gameplay

We all enjoyed the Beta I think, some more than others, but that was a mere tasting to what is to be the full game of Destiny.  With a whole Solar system to explore and enemies to fight it looks to be a very interesting game in the least.  And with a glimpse at something terrible to come at the 0:48 marker in the video below.  I can’t wait to see everything the game has to offer come Sept. 9th.



Bungie Weekly Update

Destiny is Gold!  That’s right folks the game is finished and being made into the disc you and I will be placing in our consoles and drifting off into a magical world called Destiny.  More then a little exciting for me I will be in line at midnight to pick up my copy and then a 40 min drive home and no sleep for the wicked as they say.  The trick is a nice big nap before waiting in line at the local game store.


Bungie also did the Ice Bucket challenge for ALS.  This has become a viral phenomenon that has swept the internet in donating for a great cause.  I too have been challenged and more on that next update.  Bungie did it in a great way too, the gave the in game ghost the ice bucket challenge and called out some other great characters from games.  Very nice twist to the challenge.



Mail Sack

Some great Q&A so let’s get to it.

Isaac Andrews  Will you make Sparrow races?


We’ve made a game that can be whatever you want it to be. Will you make Sparrow races? Some Gunslingers I know cobbled together a tour back in Halo 2 with nothing but some gentlemen’s agreements and a few course marshals with sniper rifle scopes for spotting the race. We’ll be watching you, to see how you spend your time in this brave new world. The ways in which you surprise us will spark the inspiration that leads to innovation.


Zokz18  Will [Destiny special events] work like they did in the Beta when you opened the doors for the Iron Banner for two hours?


No! The Beta was all about driving traffic toward the game at key moments. Those brief and urgent flash mobs of violence and glory were what we needed to test our spine.


Next time, the Banner will fly for longer. Everyone will have a chance to rally to its call.


Im SteelAssassn  In what ways can we expect clans to interact within the game?


We hope they’ll band together to tackle everything that Destiny has to offer. Clans can build their strength by outfitting their members with what they need to kick ass in every mode. That will mean sharing activities. That will mean playing games. We need clans to bring this new world alive and infuse it with some culture and civilization.


We hope Clans will have storied collisions in competitive matchmaking. It would be awesome if they were known to many people, instead of just each other. Clans can set a great example for lone wolves who aren’t sure about adding a team name to their nameplate.


The very best Clans will be the ones that can meet every challenge in Destiny. They will be the most vivid warriors out there in the wild. Destiny will serve up achievements that only Clans will be able to claim.


There are a lot more questions and answers so be sure to read the rest here.


Midland Base News


Leaders Wanted


With Destiny less then a month away we are in need of leaders. We will be fully supporting Destiny and will continue to support Halo. However with the limited number of leaders we have now the choices for what games will be played during Game Night might change and go by the way side.

So if you want to make sure the game you want to play gets the attention you think it deserves or if you just want to help make sure this group stays as awesome as it is, please volunteer here.
