Destiny‘s Trials of Osiris took place on Twilight Gap from May 5th to May 8th, 2017.
This is the fifth time that the Trials of Osiris has taken place on Twilight Gap.
I was a little perplexed by my weekly performance at the close of day one (1.50), especially when reviewing it against my overall record (6113/3154=1.9382). By the end of day one, I’d succeeded in adding 289 kills and 193 deaths to my record (289/193=1.4974).
It didn’t occur to me until I expressed my disappointment over these numbers in stream… One of my viewers pointed out that the meta had changed since the last time (January 20th to January 23rd, 2017) that Twilight Gap was played.
As a former Last Word + sniper main, the natural choice would have been for me to switch to Palindrome + Ice Breaker.
On Sunday, I ran a marathon session with NDS TaLoN. I put in some deliberate practice with my Striker Titan’s movement on Saturday night, knowing that its lightning grenades would do work on this map. I should have spent more time practicing my nade throws on Twilight Gap, as they ended up being the death of me on more occasions than I would have liked. I didn’t know how long I was expected to be on, but I do know that opportunities like this don’t present themselves every day. We ran lighthouse virgin carries from his stream for almost eight hours. By the end of it, I was worn out. I lay down and fell asleep for a few hours.
I’ve run carries with NDS TaLoN once before, on Asylum. Like last time, he stayed mostly quiet across party chat. As one of the Destiny community’s most-viewed Twitch streamers, he spends a significant portion of his time on-stream interacting with chat, and team comms suffer as a consequence. Some of the best moments were found when the whole team moved to play up close and personal with the opposing team: the full court press, if you will.
In spite of the fact that I was running carries with another strong player, my record remained virtually unchanged from the close of day one. New weekly totals: 581 kills to 391 deaths for a 1.486 K/D.
I wrapped up Trials of Osiris on Twilight gap with a Win/Loss record of 88/31, giving me a 73.95% win percentage, and 712 kills to 459 deaths for a 1.55 K/D.
I had the opportunity to play with the following individuals:
- Flame oT
- uck bungie
- THE W0RMW00D
- NDS TaLoN
- a box 0f juice
- The Devil Prada
My thanks go out to you all for being a part of my weekend 🙂
