Hahah perfect GIF.

And yeah I always thought "CAGcast" was a lame name too.

How about in the interim as we all wait we think of a better name this time around? Like I said I can put it together we just need a solid name!

Obviously still incorporating "CAG" somehow. "That CAG came from the moon" hahah

Anyone know the character limit on the Clan names? That would help.

25 carachters.

Shorthand name "shown next to players on post game carnage reports." - 4 characters

TLDR -I have an extra exotic (yellow) engram stress ball I may be willing to trade / sell. PM me if interested.

I was at GS today and they happened to have 2 stress ball engrams. I picked up 2 a few days ago and got lucky they were distinct - uncommon and exotic. Well not that lucky, I had a 75% chance that would happen.

I was a little hasty buying the 2nd 2 knowing that the probability of getting a 3rd distinct engram in 3 consecutive tries was 37.5%. And even worse was 4 distinct engrams in 4 consecutive tries at a 9.375% success rate. However, 3 distinct engrams in 4 consecutive tries has a success rate of 75% so I decided to do that and buy both. Based on $6 purchase price, expected value of the gambit was $8 to get only 1 more distinct engram. Even worse is the expected value for 2 distinct engrams on tries 3 and 4, distinct from each other and distinct from the previous 2 engrams, as it paid a measly $1.12. The goal here is to minimize loss as you can never exceed the value of the wager itself.

Engram 1 was a success with a rare engram but engram 2 failed with a 2nd exotic. Probability never lies.

So, to minimize loss I'm willing trade my exotic engram for a legendary engram or sell my engram out right.

Throwing this clan name out there because the motto works.

Clan name: Black CAG
Short Name: BCAG
Clan motto: Black CAG kills dead ... on contact.

I'd love to go with Cheap Ass Guardians, but I doubt they'd let that fly. 

 

How about: CAG Guardians from the Moon

And the tag can be" CAG2 or CAGG

Motto can be: Shaq Fu Ghaul, we're coming for our stuff

 

Or something like that.

Anyone try sending their receipt by email? Sent it twice, but kept getting a notice their inbox is full haha. I have Sprint and short messaging doesn't work for me. Hoping I can get it to go through tomorrow when I am assuming they will be back at work and checking emails again.

I'm clan-less now as I doubt the people I used to play with will be picking it up this time around.

 

I'm up for whatever name.   Also, yeah, haven't heard back about the PopTarts receipt but with the holiday we'll see - maybe tomorrow.

 

I went back to the GS where they were unpacking Pop figured on Saturday evening finally today (Monday).  They didn't have a single trace of one anywhere and the guy, who was the same one who unpacked them, couldn't believe it.  But apparently they all sold in that day and a half.  Oh well, it's not like I needed something else to collect anyway.  I got the Ghost at Target and that is way cooler.  I may try to get another one tomorrow if they actually put them out. (Edit: well, maybe not.  Looks like the are OOS at all of the nearby stores.  It isn't worth driving to one of the further ones).

 

I guess I'll be playing Destiny 2 around 10pm Pacific tomorrow  - enough time to get the game at the 9pm release, get home and install/update it.

Wrong thread?

For clan name I'd say keep it simple.

CAG Family / CAG XBOX Family
CAG Guardians
Guardians of the CAG
CAG XBOX / XBOX CAGs
Brotherhood of CAG

Looks like I'll have to install the companion app on my $35 tablet as my phone is not compatible. Companion app requires Android 5.0 or better and my phone is 4.4.

Anyone know if bungie is providing game stats/data at bungie.net this time around?

I've been watching some videos on mods, engrams, and rep almost seems too much this time around. With the length of the story I can't see how anyone can run multiple characters.

If you're looking for Destiny pops wild card toys has a set of 5 for pre order @ 29.39 + 7.99 shipping. Works out to about $8 per pop. The caveat is that delivery is expected mid to late October.

 Love it.  1000-CAG Stare it is.  Good work, Broly!

 

So, what's everyone's plan for the game?  I went physical edition with the gamestop exclusive deluxe edition and I'll pick that up at 11 PM tonight.  I probably won't play tonight as I'll still have to install it.  I'll start tomorrow night and get through the opening mission(s).

I've pre-ordered four copies of the game at GameStopall :xb1:):

 

1 x CE - I will probably not keep this and instead put the money towards the PS4 Pro bundle with the game and sell the game.

1 x LE - for me

1 x LE - for my buddy

1 x standard - for my nephew

1 x Engram stress ball set - probably for the new puppy

I got the physical copy from gs and decided to add the expansion packs yesterday. Have to pick up at 11 pm EDT. probably play some after installing tonight. Hope the download severs can handle the traffic.

FYI, this is being discussed in the CE thread. I'm quite excited for this.

Here's the print you get when buying the Destiny 2 season pass or a digital copy this week. Cost is $9.99 if you want it separately.

I just went with the digital deluxe $100 edition. Didn't care for the ce stuff this time around. I instead spent that money on the Mcfarlane Lord Saladin, GS exclusive Lord Saladin and Wolf Pack and the vinyl Ghost from Target.

And sounds good, 1000-CAG Stare it is unless we get some crazy objections haha I will set it all up as soon as it let's me in the game! :)

Clan is set to open for now but if we start filling up fast since there is a 100 member limit I will set it to invite only!

Also open to a better motto haha I am super busy at work and just threw it in there
