Midland Base Weekly Update January 26, 2015


Hey everybody, lets get this week started right! Here's a quick recap of last week so you don't have to worry about missing anything.



343i News

Quick reminder, if you have any feedback for 343 regarding Halo 5, you can use this link to voice your opinion. Remember to be polite!


Halo Championship Series

They talk about the Halo Championship Series here, but it all goes right over my head so if you're interested in it click the link!


Halo: Escalation #14

The newest Halo comic drops in just two days! For those who haven't been keeping up with it, the story is now getting into what Halsey is doing with the elites. Exciting times!


Bungie News


Crota's End - First Hard Mode Completion

The world's first completion of Crota's End hard raid was accomplished by a group called "One and Done." They completed it 11 minutes faster than it takes my laundry to complete a cycle. For those of you unfamiliar with my laundry routine, they completed it in 27 minutes. I don't know about you guys, but I'm super Jelly.


Doubles Skirmish

A new Cruicible playlist has come out called Doubles Skirmish. It's 2v2 game where you kill others and revive teammates. You know, for when you have two players but done want to play PvE. /sarcasm


A Numbers Game

We were given some interesting numbers regarding Xur's stay in the tower the weekend before last. He collected 19,436,440 strange coins, which is equal to 2,159,604 level 30 Weekly Heroic Strikes. He sold 1,143,320 Icebreakers

Leaders Wanted

We have gotten a lot of help recently from our members in becoming leaders but there is still more to do. While the MCC still isn't up to full working order yet, the Halo 5 beta gives it another two weeks before I'm interested in it again anyways. Basically, we need some leaders interested in making Halo gamenights. You can volunteer to be a leader here and we’ll use your help to continue to grow and become the best group of Halo/Destiny gamers ever!





Midland Base Clan - Destiny

You should all know this by now, but it bears repeating for our new members who found their way here. To participate in Midland Base events for Destiny, you need to be apart of our clan.  It is super easy to join up and Dredd has all the steps laid out nice and easy for you here.  Make sure you join up so we can all enjoy Destiny together.


Raiding

Make sure to watch our forums to participate in officially lead Midland Base raids.  All leaders at this point who are doing them have completed the Vault, and many are qualified to lead a Crota's End run. Make sure to sign up early to secure your spot and your riches that await.


Also, we like the idea of having ribbons for people who have completed the raids as well as helping others complete the raids, but lack the artistic ability to creat said ribbons. If you have some free time, artistic ability, and the desire to leave a lasting impression on Midland Base, please post some ideas for ribbons! The dimensions at 79x21 pixels.


Group Battle - Epsilon Fleet

Our group battle with Epsilon Fleet is taking place this Friday at 8:30pm central. While we have a full roster of people ready to play, please sign up if you feel you could be an alternate. It's super helpful! Also, we'll end up going strait to gamenight with them afterword, provided that all goes well in the actual game. So sign up here!


Fresh Meat

No new members to Midland Base this week. That just means that next week we need to get extra welcoming for the new members!

Midland Base Weekly Update January 19, 2015


It's the most wonderful time of the... week. That's right, hear all about the sector of the gaming world that can be defined - most wonderfully - as Midland Base. As always, let's start with the Halo News.



343i News

The Halo 5 beta is dead! You blew it up, you damn dirty apes! Just kidding everybody. Except the part about the Halo 5 beta being over. I hope you all enjoyed it while it lasted! If you have any feedback for 343, you can use this link to voice your opinion. Remember to be polite!


MCC Update

You can read the whole list here, but it's basically just 343 is just making it connect better. I don't know how much better it's gotten the last few weeks, having been playing Halo 5, but I guess I'll find out at gamenight this Friday! While not back in rotation yet, the following playlists re being worked on and will be added soon: Team Snipers, Team Doubles, and Objective-Only.


Bungie News


Crota's End - Hard Mode

Crota's End Hard Raid will kick off tomorrow morning, nice and early! I'd actually love to give it a try, but I'm also not willing to grind to level 32. For everybody in Midland Base who has, have a blast and please shoot some Hive for me!


Raid Weapons - Crota's End

Here's images of the four primary raid weapons that will drop in Crota's End on hard, as well as the Necrochasm, the Exotic Autorifle that can be upgraded from a Husk of the Pit, but only with a Crota's End Hard Raid completion. Check it out. You can also find a new ship and new shaders.


The Iron Banner

The Iron Banner is complete starting tomorrow morning at 3:00am Central. So if you're still missing some gear, now is the time to go get it!
