0. DEFINITELY want to see those larger than 3 people.  (#3 below is related)

1. THANK-YOU for a game that looks so great, and controls/weapons feel comfortable right away. :)

2. When choosing a destination, the interface lets me know where I have friends playing and how many.  But, I don't get to see which friends are in which location, and I don't necessarily get on the server that has my friends even if I choose their location.  So, is this a beta thing?  Why tell me where my friends are playing if I can't go join them?  I _WANT_ to be able to go join up with my friends whereever they are at that time.  Heck, I'd take a separate command that let me choose to join friends server even if I had to queue to do it.

3. party-up/game chat:  Game allows us to go bigger than 3 in-game party and chat in orbit/tower .  Would love to see the game allow us to take a larger party into a fireteam mission, allowing us to still in-game chat, but breaking us into groups of fireteam size  -- better would be allowing us to self-select the fireteam groupings before we arrive on the planet.  What's the plan for handling larger groups that don't necessarily want to play just in the crucible

4. loot:  my friends and I have noticed that we each see/get substantially different loot from a single drop or chest (one gets armor, another gets 2 coins).  And, we've had many instances where we each see things completely differently (a chest is there for 1 or 2 but not for all 3).  I know this is a beta, but can we look forward to having this balanced out more in the final release?

My questions.

I’ve heard of game character harassment in the Tower. I.E. Male characters hanging around female characters was mentioned. Is Bungie aware of such situations and what might be done to mitigate it?

Why say in the TXT fields that people are Dancing for other people? Seems unnecessary to me.

Is there a functional reason for the extended amount of time it takes to go from Orbit to a Destination? It seems like an unreasonable wait.

In Orbit, after we select the Destination, why is it we have to select Launch instead of just going to where we selected.

I get confused with the Grimoire and Ingram process. Why not just give us a weapon/armour selection at the Armoury?

A number of people I know had trouble with weapon acquisition, armour and leveling. They were very confused and maybe quitting before they got to know the game.

Pretty sure even I can field these questions.

1. Pretty much every game ever that has characters of both genders will have this, even in Halo if you were a female character you were WAY more likely to get tea bagged if an enemy or humped if friendly. There's nothing they can really do, even making all characters male will still lead to man on man hump time. It's an FPS on Xbox, the population is mostly young boys. Young boys like to hump things and bother girls.

2. Being able to color your armor or dance at all is unnecessary. It's just a fun little thing that doesn't hurt anybody and some people enjoy it.

3. Do you mean the load times? Doesn't seem like it takes more than 5, maybe 10 seconds. Wouldn't really call that extended. Plus it's loading a fairly large seamless map with other players and enemies and loot.

4. I would imagine it's so your fireteam can see where you've chosen to go. It gives people a moment to switch weapons/sub classes if they want depending on where you've chosen. And Since you have the option of playing with randoms who you may not be talking to, this way they can see what will be next and it gives them a chance to leave before they have to load in and out of a map.

5. Finding an encoded Engram thing adds a little excitement. Some people enjoy the mystery of finding a mystery item. Sure they could just give you that green helmet, but this way you've got something to look forward to when you finish the mission and it's incentive to return to the tower, which let's be honest here, there really isn't much reason to go to aside from that.

6. What were they having trouble with, equipping weapons? Using the automatic leveling up process and simply clicking on a circle once it's filled? It's not exactly rocket science.

Thanks guys.  I tried to get in as much from here as humanly possible.  Hopfully it was enjoyable and we can do more in the future.  Next time I'm going to make sure its only 2o2p members.  We couldn't fill the PS4 party since I dont really have any 2o2p members on my PS4 yet.  Xbox live was sadly down.  :(

Blarg! I was trying to time my Crucible matches in case I could get in the same match. Didn't know you were on the PS4. I should have just watched the stream, except I was having fun with Duke, so no time lost.

Sorry Deep :(

I put out a tweet at the last minute but Xbox live was completely borked.

Unfortunately my question was answered and I'm not thrilled with the b.s. response. I'm still on the fence. I've played too much MP during the beta because our party was too big and we didn't want to have to tell someone to take a hike.

I'm not sure I'd call the response  B.S since thats really just what Bungie decided on for their sizes, but I'm not thrilled with 3 person parties for questing either.  

However as with any game there is usually a limit to a party size (4v4, 6v6, 12v12).  I just really wish it was higher then 3 as it seems WAY to small and will almost always cause someone to get the shaft.  The real hope is that raids will be the go to for group play in larger sizes.  There is still so much we dont know.

What I thought was b.s. was when he said a large party would kill the intimacy of the story. How does having 15 randoms in the same area not do that as well? Because I can’t talk to them and work together?

Halo was about Master Chief, one guy. Yet, we could have a party of four players, all looking like Master Chief running through the campaign. Why start caring about story continuity now. Does he think that was a mistake and they’re correcting that wrong?

I thought Boarderlands was great with four players. But then Boarderlands had four classes so I guess they’re sticking with the idea of having one of each class in a party.

I can settle for the larger party raids.

Yep, they made fun of you for not liking art because you can't cancel cut scenes.  It was an awesome ROFLMAO moment for all.

I'll watch em the first time through. The 3rd+ time when I'm just trying to level a new character they're just annoying. But did he actually answer the question or, as I suspect most of the answers were, did he just hmm and haw and a lot and say he can't tell us, we'll have to wait til release to find out?

The stream was cool, nice of DeeJ to join you guys. Interesting and fun to watch, just not a whole lot of 'new' info. Nice job 2o2p Stream Team!

*I wish they would re-open the Moon on Sunday, just so I can explore it more. Saw a video at Datto does Destiny that goes through the whole Hellmouth area, very spooky and Gieger-ish.

Was away for the weekend with the family so missed it sad. Will catch it on youtube. But on the + side, got to order my PS4 Destiny bundle on Friday morning. So come the 9/9 I`ll be going this-gen for the first time, so after all the updates and downloads I should be online by the 13th.

Finally watched this all the way through....nice job, Deej has a serious radio voice!  Anyone who has not seen it, it fills the destiny void a bit.  YouTube on xb1 is where I found it.
