Quote from: Bungie Weekly Update
Bustin’ Caps

Thanks, Lars! You’re not the only one grinding their way through the Warrant Officer ranks. According to our forums, you’d be led to believe that we’re all at max rank with nothing left to live for. Of course, our stats say otherwise.

But Luke promised we’d talk about raising the level cap soon and today we have the details. Hope you’re up for a challenge. In the very short term future a thermometer will appear on the Bungie.net front page charting the community’s collective progress towards completing, wait for it…

117 Million Daily & Weekly Challenges!

Don’t freak out. Currently, our online engineers project that you’re on pace to hit that milestone sometime in November. I’d wager to guess that you’ll hit it early in the month, but hey, what do I know?

Well, I do know that when you do cross the 117 Million mark, we’ll celebrate by blowing the lid off the level cap! In the immediate aftermath, new ranks and armor will be made magically available for you inside The Armory, provided you have the rank and credits required. Time to get to work!

Not sure how I feel about this bullshit

I remember when they were doing "kill five enemies with the energy sword in firefight" a couple days back, every firefight game became this utter farce of players crawling over each others' bodies for those precious challenge points.

My favorite bit: two players charging for the sword, a third flies over them, littering the ground in front of the fallen elite general's body with plasma launcher balls - two betrayals, last man standing, the guy grabs the sword and is immediately killed by green plasma rockets. We hear only "fucking gay" before he quits out of matchmaking.

In light of me and Ziiro's game having been Ultimate Good Times, I'm thinking we should try to work a game with Bal, Ziiro, myself and Newbie relatively soon. Maybe Wednesday night, 8 EST?

I'll be there with bells on

EDIT: Nevermind about the bells, they cost 150k cR.

I've plotted out my next armor purchases:

-80k Wrist GPS
[The next items require the rank cap to go away]
-28k Right Operator Shoulder
-40k Left Commando shoulder
-85k Commando Helmet

Looks like I'm gonna be a couple hours late, if I make it at all. This whole "getting married" business is hell on my schedule; I'll be glad to see it finished.

They finally lifted the rank cap. But now I'm not interested enough to grind out the items I want.
