I read something that said the HDR brightness adjustment screens are misleading. It said the best thing to do is leave both adjustments at default. I did that and it does look better (still a bit oversaturated). When I adjust the HDR brightness as directed on the two icon screens on my CX, it introduces lots of black crush. Leaving them at default looks better.
The brightness in game was the one thing i tinkered with and the black crush on the moon was unbearable, so like you I set it back to default.

I played a bit more last night and noticed that I still get some black crush in dark areas, specifically most rock shadows are devoid of detail. For example if I enter one of the lost sectors that are in a cave where you have to use a flashlight. Does this happen to anyone else, if not, what settings are you using? I just recently moved to a OLED from my DELL 34" ultrawide, so I havent really change much setting on the LG with the exception of lowering the SDR brightness to 30. I did also lower the HDR brightness to 45, but increasing it doesn't seem to make the black crush any better.

One thing I learned a while back so far as the game settings go (this sounds strange but it matters): Dial in the game brightness and so on without HDR on first or leave it at default which is in the middle. Then turn HDR on and work from there after that.

Loaded up Shattered Throne yesterday and finally polished off my Ager Scepter and Lorentz Driver Catalysts in the Thrall room. Scepter is awesome for add clear. In fact, here is an interesting video for the Warlock mains (can also translate to other classes to a large degree):



One of my buddies (local) and his two boys invited me to their Clan. We had so much fun together I bowed out of my large, frequent engram dropping, Clan to join them. With my hours and age, it seemed more my speed. Rarely ever did play with the other Clan, and the 20-something drama got old fast when I did. Good peeps though, helped me out and were patient with me when we were on a Raid, it certainly wasn't due to hard feelings. Went to our Discord to explain myself, and everybody seemed cool.

The local buddy is on Crossplay (PS5), which has been interesting. Have to say I'm impressed with how Bungie mitigated the pros and cons between the two platforms. He also got a god roll Messenger (Desperado, Rapid Hit, Ricochet Rounds & Smallbore) and Reeds Regret (Vorpal, Triple Tap) in the same day. I've gone through 20+ Messengers and haven't seen a Desperado yet, let alone a god roll. I told him we cannot be friends any longer, lol.

Eager to see where the story goes at reset today. Nearly there!

Man, so we just went on a 50 game win streak in iron banner as a random 6 stack, what's even better is it was a group of 4 console players and 2 PC players so we got alot of matches against PC lobbies but we still kicked ass.

What's disgusting is the amount of 6 randoms we faced as a 6 stack, I think out of those 50 games we faced MAYBE 4 other 5+ stack groups.

I don't know if I'm just grumpy these days, but I just seriously dislike pvp. It's just frustrating as I don't enjoy the ability/special spam. I was still working on getting my warlock to the pinnacle cap this week and decided that I would try some IB bounties. Matchmaking was not kind to me at all. One mercy game and I was done. I used to REALLY enjoy IB too....especially when I spent my time farming for a good Swarm of the Raven.

In other news, what is the GM level requirement for this season?

Destiny 2 arrives on Xbox Game Pass for PC on October 12th

While the looter shooter has been available on the Xbox console side of Xbox Game Pass for more than a year, PC players have been patiently waiting for it to be included on Xbox Game Pass for PC...Microsoft is now bundling Destiny 2: Beyond Light on Xbox Game Pass for PC on October 12th...Witch Queen, Destiny 2’s next big expansion, won’t be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch
