Selling and Buying.

Soo to make this more clear, the rants to do with my experiance on multiple places for buying and selling. These include Ebay, LTT classified thread and Facebook/ Direct messeging.   Buying: So as a buyer their are things expected of ya, being able to purchase the product, be intrested in the product and be able to communicate with the seller if needed.   As being a buyer on Ebay three times now (positive n Negative) and a buyer here on the LTT forums i tend to be understanding,    Ebay- first purchase was two monitors going for £55 total, a steal right? Well it was a complicated one. It never arrived the currior never arrived at our door yet it was signed for? I went around my estate and to the area that a GPS would take you to if following it asking if they have recieved a large package sent to this address. Sadly no. Contacted the Seller who said he will contact the currior on this and try to find out. Done what he could so just told me to request the refund and all that would happen is i pay the return fee £12.50 total (could be how he got money without sending an actual package who knows) but lo and behold the same delivery company is seen coming bacl into my estate and stopping infront of one of the houses a retrieving packages.   So this turned out negative as this could have been a fault on the delivery service, lies from neaghbours or just a none existant package.   Purchase other products on ebay (wifi card and GPU) both came with no issue bar the GPU having a coil whine under load (never mentioned in listing).    LTT Forum: So cant say much here dealt with the same person each time who was willing enough to low prices down if reasonable and would keep me up to date on the status of the items along with being a good seller and seeing if they had any other products i would be interested in.   All came in good condition and no hassle what so ever bar name of reciever due to goin to a uni accomodation that wont give parcels to a sibling if it not addressed to them.   Selling:   I have sold two thing that required postage & packaging   One being a halloween costume and the other being a Ps2 bundle.   Halloween costume was odd it got bought, sent and recieved without a single word from the buyer. Bear in mind this is with me informing them on whem it would be posted, and when it was posted so they could expect it soon.   Now the PS2 how ever is a whole different story, bought, sent and recieved with contact to the buyer. Answering queries and when they should recieve it.   Item was posted on ebay with everything checked. Controller, Buzzers, Mic, games, eye toy and console.    Listed with what all was working. (Bar a game that i dunno why i listed)   Got contacted by the buyer that the product was recieved and that some of the games where not reading.    I responded saying that it could be a problem with the reader lense and suggested cleaning the lense or doing a reset of the disc reader lense with a link to a guide. (Console never had this done before so could have resolved the read disc error)   Got back saying they didnt want to make it worse (assuming they never opened the console or cleaned the lense) and requested a refund.   So before i decided to request the refund i asked for the info of all the discs that where not reading, image of which one are reading and proof.    Got a response saying that one set of the buzzers aren't working along with the discs.   And later then got a response saying what discs where not working, that a set of buzzers aint working, a usb isnt working and that i had the eye toy pluged into the none working usb port (no photos had any additions plugged in during the listing) and questioned why a guitar hero mic was in it and not a kareoke mic that i had listed (was added at a later date with no cost increase) but thought due to it being a guitar hero mic they thought thatw as the fault with it.    Now i could he wrong and the console deteriorated during the original post and the purchase of the item.   So it felt off as the refund request came in saying it was not working as hoped and discs not reading or taking long loading times. Then came the response of oh this is not working and then the list of faults along with a fault that i never had with the console since it use and that was the disc tray getting stuck. I have had many consoles, xbox 1(like the first one) the PS2 , xbox 360 and the xbox one. Ony the 360 was the one with disc tray issues.   So ya, currently not havin positive effects with ebay. Anyway if i get it returned and the device isnt working as it left, addditions have been changed or games been swapped out.

Destiny 2 - Why? 18/04/2018

So as visible from the title this ones on the famous flop of a game Destiny 2 which was launched on all platforms. So what is their to rant about with destiny? Their base game is actually designed well, inventory system is clean and flush, The maps are clear and understanding, Gameplay in PVE is well and when you get use to it if your a Destiny 1 player the Crucible is alright. So what is the problem with the game? Oh right the End-Game content and content in general.    So to start off lets talk about the End game content. Hmm wait there isn't much really, You have Public events and patrols, the weekly and daily milestones, Nightfall and the Raid. But that sounds like a decent amount of end game content. Well in retro speck it isn't purely due to a system they implemented called 'Clans'. When you in an active clan you have many members going around doing things for the clan and getting the clan reward for all members so whats the problem with this? well the system includes Raid equipment drops and not just the Tokens (which I would prefer) so people who don't do the raid will have a chance of getting a raid weapon or gear for minimum effort and to kick in the teeth of the ones who ran the raid the clan engram for the raid will drop it at a higher light level... So like I mentioned if you are in an active clan you can get these drops weekly and with less effort.    Now what else can I talk about? well the remaining of the end game content is stale (prior to the nightfall update) nightfalls previously didn't drop specific gear for said nightfall, Public events just get repetitive and milestones are usually done within a day (excluding Raid depending on your play style) So what could they have done? Well below i'm gonna give some opinions.   1. Bring back the Daily/Weekly Campaign missions at a harder difficulties, This can provide replay ability and also give the player another thing to do and possibly find a rare weapon only available within the Daily/Weekly campaign event... *Cough* Black Spindle *cough*   2. Add an intractable door in the tower which takes you to the last city. So to explain this in detail the door would bring you to the last city which would have patrols that would have you clearing out the remaining cabal that are within the city, Have an area like Court of Oryx on the Dreadnaught where you must fend off a wave of Cabal attacking the city from the wall or ones heading towards the tower. It could include things like intractable AI which will give you quests or simply a different prospective of the fall to add to the already 'existent lore', and when you have explored for a while your vanguard will radio you saying that they have a reward for you when you return for helping in the repair of the last city (Daily rewards) nothing amazing maybe vanguard gear which is a light level higher than the current peace you have or randomly give you and exotic engram.  This would give more end-game as having a court of oryx type event happen that you can start can lead to more gear to collect and well a fun massive event that more than 6 guardians can participate in.   3. Add back the Randomised weapon roles (I heard they are possibly being brought back) This added to the end-game in a way because people would grind to get the 'perfect role' of a weapon and this would then in return improve the crucible than just seeing the Uriels Gift and all the other generic weapons that are soo so common in the Crucible.    4. Remove the Raid gear engram from the clan post, Meaning they will not get raid gear but be given tokens for the raid vendor (Which only unlocks when you ran the raid once) So this give people the incentive to run the raid to use said tokens and will also provide players with more things to do and or raid helpers. So for this I was thinking you would need to get this drop of tokens for 3 weeks in a row to get one piece of armour/weapon form the vendor.    Like this is minor things that could use recycled aspects of the game to make possible, You have the assets for the City already since it was used in the second mission (technically second mission) you have the script for the randomised roles on weapons from Destiny one and the same script for the daily/weekly missions   No to be fair this wasn't much of a rant but my opinion on the game and showing what I see as flaws for the hardcore area of the community

Fortnite Rant 16/04/2018

So as the Title spells out for you all this is me going off on a wobbly over Fortnite, This fairly new Battle Royale game made from Epic games. Now I have many things to give off to epic games about this games system etc but firstly brief intro on the game.    Fortnite is a Game which has two modes save the world and 'Battle Royale'. I'll be Ranting on the Battle Royale aspect of the game which is a 100 player island survival and who every is last standing get to be lonely on a island that is not destroyed by giant towers, half destroyed buildings and no way to escape a storm which surrounds it. So my issues with this game dominantly comes from two aspects the Building and the Guns. Going off on the guns it removes a high part of Skill from the game as the better the weapon the higher the damage it outputs per shot. This means if your in the end zone with a grey weapon you may as well turn the barrel and end yourself as it ain't gonna be easy. So to me I don't like the aspect that one of the key aspects in winning is getting a higher coloured weapon instead of skill.    Upon other things the Weapons have this really odd RNG bullet recognition damage system I assume, Where you can hit someone point blank range and get a measly 8 dmg show up from a shotgun, which is completely absurd due to the fact the guns already have increasing damage based on the colour of said weapon why add in a RNG bullet which is like, "hey 8 dmg  you know that your dead now because of that measly 8 dmg" . Anyway other than those areas the gun play is good I do enjoy the gun play when engaging players from time to time.    Coming onto the other Rant topic would have to be the building, And no before people say just get better at building it isn't that aspect. I Don't like the building because it leaves players to not plan out their movement as much and just run from point A - B  as the bird flies. Which is basically because you can just run and as once you get shot at or hit you just build 4 walls and a ramp to bunker down.... which just to me kills to strategy aspect of the game when solo because how are you meant to plain going against a player doing that if your low on ammo? Like you can't waist shots on him and then he gets the advantage as he can peek you without being too out of cover. Only option is to do the same of fuck off away from the dude. Soo yeah the building is a good concept to the game but at the same time removes some skills that could be used if without it. (I know this would just make is a cartoon Battle Royale without its own spin off).   Finally the last thing that just get me soo annoyed In the game and doesn't really affect me would have to be the constant Adding of Content to a basic game mode. Like I know other companies do this for their games but no where near as often as this. Like since Fortnite Battle Royale launched it has had a Chain gun, Crossbow, impulse grenade, boogie bomb, Hunting rifle, Homing Rocket, Hand Cannon, InstaFort and other if I have missed any within a short span. The fact that Fortnite needs to keep bringing out content to have people enjoy it kind of begs the question, Does the players play Fortnite for the base game or for the new gear, Skins, cosmetics and loot that you can acquire via money or via finding in game for the match. Like I'm only basing this off what I know, People who still play PUBG only have packs to get clothing and even then it doesn't control the game and why people play it. yet for me it looks like the skins n all is why people play Fortnite which is fine, if you like wasting money on making a nice looking character that will eventually be abandoned because it is no longer the craze.   So to summarize this I would have to say why do people play this game? Is it for the Actual gameplay or for the cosmetics and gear you get? What would make me enjoy this game as the shitty player I am? Well if the Bullet damage was static meaning depending on range it will do said damage in this body area and none of this hey 8 damage at close range bs with the Shotguns, That and well just cleaning up the game give players other play styles than build n hide or build and run.    So that's the end of my Fortnite Rant that was fuelled by the rage of getting the damn 8 dmg pump hit markers in yesterdays game.... Please feel free to leave your feedback or toxic hate of my view on the game. As I said it is only my opinion others could agree of disagree on it.
