For those of you who actually get useful weapons, this probably isn't for you. For those of you like myself I am sure you'll appreciate this.

A little Back ground

I play destiny enough, 3 - 4 times a week. I've ran Crota a dozens times, the vault of glass many times with limited success. I have all the Crota armour, and basically nothing from the vault of glass.

Now normally I don't complain, I mean I like the grind, it's a fun game, the game controls are fantastic, the levels are fantastic, and the story.... the story needs work.

Anyway i spent the better part of the night doing the daily, weekly, and weekly night fall, as per usual grinding away hoping i'll get a decent drop.... All knowing full well this is not going to happen. It's actually became a running joke.... "Oh GREAT ascendant <insert some upgrade material here I have 100's of>. 

Insult to Injury

We completed Crota on normal because it was 1:00am and we were to tired to run through hard, we were all playing like crap. So we get out of hard more and start normal from the start only took 20 mins, probably less. I run to the chest open it crossing my fingers hoping beyond all hope I am going to get something awesome. I hold square the anticipation grows and POOF "ascendant shard!" i yell "YES! Guess what I got?!" and since it's me my cousin, cohort and friend FordOwesMe says "Ascendant shards!"  to which i reply "YOU Guess it! How did you know Thanks Bungie and F*&K YOU!".

We continue on our trek we seriously slap the smile of Crotas face in what has to be almost a record, the rewards start to roll it and I see weapon appear I am like "YES! FINALLY!" I go to my inventory to see what I GOT...  and what do you think it was ANOTHER Light of the abyss, something i already have and don't need! 

In closing:

Why thank you bungie, thanks for all the ascendant materials, all the ascendant shards, the motes of light and strange coins, thanks for all the ABSOLUTE GARBAGE I can't use, while you're at it why not give me yet another blue or green engram. You know because need more stacks upon stacks upon stacks upon stacks of weapons parts and plate steel. The second light of the abyss I got I Immediately broke down, what did I get? ascendant shards and weapons parts... but thats not all i also got a huge heaping helping of frustration, annoyance, and intense dislike, i went on a tirade for about 10 minutes to fordowesme dismay which ended with: "Dude if this keeps up I think i am going to throw in the towel on this game, all i have to say is Thanks bungie, F^&k your hat, F&* your face, F&*k your mom, and f^&k you!"

OK, i am the first to admit I truly SUCK at the crucible, I don't pretend to be good an I avoid it like the plague. In short i loath the crucible. IN fact i find it as enjoyable as getting kicked in the sack, having a tooth pulled or get shot in the face several times with a staple gun.

I just spent the better part of 2 hours getting a grand total of 146 points only to have one really terrible round(not that any of my rounds are good) knock me all the way back down to 132... yeah, fun isn't it, all the while screaming bloody murder at the people who are actually good at the crucible(not your fault sorry for the profanity). 

To the guy who thought forcing players into the crucible was a good idea:

Sorry lad but I personally think you should get your head checked to see if you have a nasty case of The brain-rabies, or perhaps your lapse of judgement was caused by an brain aneurysm, or some sort of momentary form of palsy.

Since I only really enjoy using hand cannons and my luck is beyond terrible my only hope of getting a decent hand cannon has been this thorn bounty... which in fact has been more of a PAIN IN THE ASS then it's worth... 

In short... forcing people into the crucible is a stupid idea in my opinion, and I am about to throw in the towel on this bounty.

Thanks for all the ascendant shards, ascendant material, and polyphage that I have been getting from all these "exotic chests" they have been about as useful as the breasts on a bore.

Please be informed that every time I get an exotic chest whith nothing in it or die on the crucible the middle finger i am pointing is directed solely at the moron who thought it was a good idea to force people into the crucible to get a useful weapon.

And to those who are good at the crucible well done lads it's a difficult task. kudos and good luck.
