So you're saying I should go with a lower load out? I can put on crap armor and reduce my guys down to 32 or so...
After a few hours yesterday, I think that might have been only a bonus that bungie added during the first IB, 1st one when Wolves came out I mean.
I had my hunter on 31 and 33 and a half and got the same XP for a win, so I think it was simply a bonus on the previous one to allow players to level
I just never get put on a team that wins for IB.
I went through about 12 or 15 matches yesterday without win might have been more.
Previous IB, when I had 5 or more losses and got the coins you get so for your next win you get extra XP I was getting over 400XP for a win after
having 5 losses, yesterday with a lower level I only got just over 300XP with the 5 losses prior (or in my case 15 losses).
So if you are trying it, I wouldn't bother, Just make sure you have iron banner gear, 1 piece of armor, Iron banner shader, and the Iron banner
thingy where you name is displayed and you get a little extra XP for wins, it helps having finished a nightfall and don't forget the IB buff.
Still its taking me ages even to get level 3 rank, with just one character, I doubt I will pull off what I did the last banner with all 3
I hear what your saying with the matchmaking,
I suspect it might be an option when or soon after Taken king is released.
Too many players asking for it, matchmaking where there isn't, hopefully Bungie will listen.
I have been soloing the nightfalls I can, the moon one thats available now is doable, Venus, not nexus but the other is probably the easiest, and
also the earth strike, not Omnigul the 1st one, there is a real cheese spot if you can make it all the way to the end and you don't get touched by any
enemies, but you do need a sniper with armor piercing rounds. The mars one from last week is also doable solo, get o the end and hide under the steps
to the left where the boss comes out and just takes shots when you get the chance.
They all just take time and patience when trying to solo a nightfall.
Although I am happy when a friend joins, it just makes it a little easier even though I die more often when playing a fire team, I guess soloing or
at least trying to solo a nightfall really makes me cautious, the Venus one takes me just under and hour, The moon one the other day with no rewards
(stupid rewards system) took me about 35 minutes.
Mars takes about the same, so with patience they are doable on your own.
I did the one the other day with my gunslinger Hunter on 33 and a half. Solar burn so I used gunslinger, Killed most of the enemies using
Icebreaker and solar machine gun until the end when I used a few rockets and Icebreaker to kill the troll.
Hit me up if you ever want to do anything, I too am keen on doing more 32 POE, that I cannot solo past the second round when mines and what not need
to be cleared, screen name is posted in this thread, sonjalovestyson
