Midland Base Weekly Update December 15, 2014

Hello everyone. Welcome to your next weekly update.  

343i News
While the video is not playing well on my computer rite now I did get to watch some of it. This weeks bulletin talks about updates to the MCC, the Halo 5 beta and the recent Halo championship.

Bungie News
This weeks Bungie update talks about The Dark Below. We are introduced to the voice behind our new best friend in the tower and we get an interview with the leader of the first fire team to complete the new raid. Bungie also confirms that the new strike will continue to be included in the weekly and nightfall rotation but the old strikes will be used as well. The new weekly strike starting tomorrow will be one of the strikes available at game launch.

Leaders Needed
Whether you are new or have been here since the beginning most of us have come to call Midland Base are home.  We fight together, we raid together, we laugh together.  The biggest reason this group is the way it is, is having members like you step up and help lead us.  We still have lots of things to help out with and are looking for members to help.  If you are interested in making sure we stay awesome here, look to the volunteer thread here.  We look forward to you joining us in the Head Shed.


Midland Base Clan
There are now several game nights in both Xbox One and 360 dedicated to Destiny but to participate 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.

Vault of Glass
As the 360 leader I am planning of hosting hard raids through the VoG now that more of our members have reached level 30 thanks to the new content.

Crota's End
Many of our leaders are now hosting raids on Crota's End. If you are interested in taking part signups are available in the Destiny part-up forum. For those of you on the 360 I am planning on giving this raid another try as soon as we can all get together again. We had one good run with no prior knowledge of the raid and got to the gatekeepers. For those of you trying this raid I recommend coming prepared to be swarmed by never ending waves of every hive you can think of. It wouldn't hurt to check out this weeks Bungie update either since they interviewed the leader of the first team to complete the raid.




Here it is, your moment of Zen...

Midland Base Weekly Update December 5, 2014

Hello everyone. Welcome to your next weekly update.  

343i News
I'm not seeing a whole log on the 343 front this week. On that note let me share a new experience with you. I finaly got to play Halo 2 Anniversery:

The graphics looked incredible and the game play was everything I expected. I played co-op split screen with a friend with no errors. It was weird adjusting to the controls but the game was every bit as good as I remembered. I can't wait to play this with everyone here. 


Bungie News
This week was big news on the Bungie front as this is the last update before the launch of The Dark Below. It looks like we have a lot of changes on the horizon. Let me attempt to summarize them.

The new Dark Below expansion maps will be included in new playlists so that people that buy the expansion get a chance to play them.

Iron Banner will be coming back with another fresh start. That's rite everyone, we are talking a reset. The good news is that they will be offering level 31 capable gear, So players that do not buy The Dark Below and put in the effort in Iron Banner can reach level 31.

Bungie is working of a balance between the new powerful weapons and the ones you already have.

Vendors including Xur will be offering new gear from the expansion.

The new raid will be available day one but will require at least one level 30 to go in. For those of you on the 360 that means either relying of the help of some of our other wonderful leaders jumping over to the old system or we need to step up our raiding.

All this and much much more.

Looking to get your hands on some sweet loot like Raid Tier armor or Praedyth's Revenge? We are regularly having raid run-throughs. You can look on any forum and see the upcoming runs in global posts with the tag "Raiding" next to it.  Be sure to sign up quickly cause spots go fast and it is a first come first serve in most cases.

On this note I want to add that Dredd1973 is considering no longer hosting normal raids due to lack of participation. If you wish to continue taking part in normal raids hosted by our fine CO please post your interest.
