Poll: PlanetDestiny Content

Published on: Oct 14, 2014 @ 17:04

In last week’s poll we asked about Iron Banner, and whether or not you all were enjoying it. We got a lot of great responses from people who chose “No” and hopefully Bungie will take your criticisms and improve it in the future.

DeeJ talked a lot about Iron Banner in the weekly update, and it was brought up in a Guardian Radio podcast, and basically he said that it will work differently the next time we have access to it.

What content do you want us to put extra focus on?

This week we’d like to know what you all think about our content. Our goal is to branch out and cover as much as possible, and we want to know what you all are most interested in.

What do you enjoy most? exotic weapon reviews? class guides? If we’re currently not covering a topic that you want to read on this site or watch on our YT channel, please share that with us in the comments below – we read them all!

We’ll still be covering all of the latest news and post original articles as much as we can, but the feedback we get this from this poll will let us know what to put extra time and effort into.


Check out forums.planetdestiny.com if you’d like to talk to others about Destiny in a friendly and welcoming community! :)

    The only annoying thing about PlanetDestiny is that you’ve swapped over to a new URL. The “planetdestiny.com” URL doesn’t work for me; it flat out doesn’t load. So I have to swap the “planetdestiny.com” in the URL to your old one, “destinynews.net”. This lets me read the pages in base HTML with images; I guess that the PHP and CSS are linked to the PD HTML and not the DN. Pretty much what I’m trying to say is, “Don’t get rid of your old URL, “destinynews.net”. Please. I enjoy reading all of the news you guys put out.”

    • what browser are you using?

      • Yhgi117

        I’m using Chrome, but I’ve tried it in both IE and Firefox. I’m kinda not willing to install Safari or Opera.

        • It shouldn’t matter, I’ve tested it on all browsers on multiple computers. What’s the exact error it gives you?

          • Yhgi117

            It’s not a regular error. I forgot to mention earlier that I’m going through a proxy with a filtering system, which has a finger in this particular pie. Sorry about that.
            It states that the website is either unavailable or the URL is “corrupt”, which is BS, because clearly you guys are accessing it with no ill effects. It then states that this instance has been logged in my laptop’s filtering system for “further study and implementation of safety”.

    I enjoy reading what you’re posting so keep up the good work! May I add that I especially appreciate the exotic reviews in how in depth they are with the stats and the perks, and was hoping you can extend that to legendary weapons and armor. I am hoping to find out if there are any differences between them (Shadow Price/Vanquisher/Grim Citizen anyone?). Also regarding perks, what the hidden stats may be. Keep up the awesome job!

    • Paratrooper2000

      Yes, comparing similar weapons with in-depth damage that they do would be awesome!

        I would also enjoy reviews on the legendaries that are for sale in the various faction stores. Thanks for making a great site that helps satiate my need for more Destiny, especially when I can’t stay connected!

  • BuckshotGeorge

    This place seems to be the quickest I can find for new destiny news, and interesting features. Keep up the good work.

    I would possibly like to see a “top 10” of the best weapons available, how to get them etc.

    The thing I love most about destiny news is getting to know what is coming up in the game. I’m not very fond about the videos of people exploiting the game to get into DLC areas. Feels a bit tacky, but news is news I suppose.

    I love the more ethical news like what the new Weekly events will be. That is my favourite kind of post.

    I also love exotic reviews, they help me get a good insight on what I have or hope to get. I also enjoy the videos that put light into things and educate. Tutorials and Tips on how to play the game and specifics on in-game features.

    What I’d like to see more of Is tips and tricks on how to use certain weapons. “What Is for you?” sort of stuff.

    To put it bluntly, I love pretty much everything the site is already doing. Everything should be kept going because I am finding it hard to say I want to see different stuff (:

    I’m a mix between do what you’re doing and adding my 2 cents. Keep up the Exotic reviews, and as I can see here, others along with me would like some Legendary reviews too if you can. I specifically would like reviews of the weapons available to purchase in the Tower from the quartermasters and faction representatives, as spending marks is a big deal for me. And I would also say to keep a slight priority on the latest news, rumors, and glitches, that’s what drew me to the site anyway. Keep up the fantastic work!

    Hey I love this site and the forums, im here just about everyday…my problem is with some of the videos, if youre going to do a review on a weapon, show it to us upgraded. Then I just watched a video about all the hotfix stuff and it was very informative but it was basically just someone reading the same notes from the press release and playing crucible. I would try to edit the videos in a way so that whatever youre talking about is visually represented on screen, for instance the templar glitch fix, show a part in the video as to what that is and we can see why its a problem or not. Just some constructive criticism guys, I love the site

    I think it’d be nice to see some videos/articles on effective builds for each class, and what gear, weapons, and talents you should have equipped to do so. That would be very interesting to see, and I think would help a lot of players in choosing what’s the best gear for their specific character.
