Had a bit of a heart event, but should be able to hop on sometime soon.

That sounds scary. I hope it is something you can manage with treatment.

Duke, D2 will not have private matches at launch. No start date given or whether the default team size of 4 can be exceeded. 

For me, I can't see going back to D1 for private matches. I hope to be too busy in D2 for that. I also hope D2 private matches don't take 2 years to be added like in D1.

Thanks for the information, Deep! I'll weigh the options before September and after the Beta.

Doing some rehab now, got things cleared out, on some new meds and diet and hopefully back to exercising in a month or two. Said if I follow the guidelines I shouldn't have lost any time off the old lifespan, thankfully.

Good turnout as usual, 6/20. Some audio and lag problems, but consensus was they were mostly on Bungie's end.

Actually glad I didn't know about the server maintenance or else I'd have been a bit anxious up until game time.

As Deep noted, another great night with a great turnout!

-- with the caveat that we had a couple drop-outs due to connections or other issues. But they were able to get back in by the next game.

Afterwards we broke up into smaller groups to take out Taniks in the Nightfall. I teamed up with Vaht and Agent (who couldn't make the private matches). The grenades perk was a big help in surviving that final frenzy.

Taking Tuesday July 4 off. If anyone wants to host the private matches, feel free! I will be back on track July 11.

Another great session last night. We had a full group of 12 over 50s plus a short waiting list.

Looking forward to the rest of the summer, but am officially announcing that Sept 5, 2017 will be my final Tuesday hosting the Private Matches. Destiny 2 starts the very next day which means it's time to move on to new things. It's been fun, though. I will miss this!

One other item: I will likely miss the Aug 22 session as I will be driving back from a certain celestial event the day before involving the sun and the moon.

I think that is good pre-planning.

Hopefully you'll be up to starting it again when the timing is suitable.  smiley

Indeed! Especially considering the network outage overtime.

Great turnout again last night! Hard to believe next Tuesday (9-5-2017) is the last Private Match I'll be hosting for the near future. It's been fun and I've enjoyed the company.

I have a feeling the servers are going to be rough again for the last session, so brace yourselves.

You may be correct about the servers next week. Just in case it someone starts thinking Halo 5 as an alt. Phooey.

 I would thank for your very successful efforts running the priv matches but there's still one more chance to royally fuck it up. I'd hate wasting the words.  wink

Thanks, everyone! This has been a lot of fun!

Don't remember much after the last match except waking up in a ditch with a horrible headache, trashed armor, and vague memories that the Tower had gone to sh***.
