Complaining at this juncture would be a mute point, I got a refund. The reality is they have problems. A friend of mine did not, but then he's got a Radeon. Who knows what the problem is, but clearly they have one.

Well, since you were a early buyer, I imagine you were looking forward to it. Sorry about that. Good thing is, there's so many other good games out.

Yeah, it's all good. Funny enough, The Doom collection got a discount on GOG, and after recently discovering GZDoom, I decided to get and relive them. Not quite the same as the new hotness, but it will be a grand trip down memory lane and just in time for halloween!

So, uh... 400 people affected and overlays wasn't the issue. This story got blown out of proportion real fast.

Security update from Bungie. https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/46426

But it was more like:
- manually banned 400 people
- overturned 4 bans from beta
- then they updated with an 'oops', there was a group banned in error (unknown number), but nothing to do with overlays.
It wasn't just "oops". The project leader's response was lame and he said "That is Internet BS" in twitter.
Look: https://twitter.com/ShockAndShaw/status/923033887269257216

Just in case that link become nothing, This is his first reply "We do block programs from pushing their code into our game. Most overlays work like that. We don't ban for that tho. That's internet BS."

So basically you just confirmed, with Bungie's own updated statement, that this was not blown out of proportion and that the experiences that many have had, myself included, are in fact caused by a code problem. Thank You for that.

Dear Bungie;
Situations like this and many others[looking at you EA] are why PROPER and THROUGH beta testing is needed before releasing games and software. We, the paying public, are not your beta testers. We are tired of you treating us as such. We are tired of getting screwed over because of YOUR failures. And we are tired of being treated like criminals through sad use of garbage DRM, which has proven itself to be as effective as a screen door on a submarine.

The statistical information I get from MSI afterburner is detrimental for me to choose my in game settings. I need to know what % usage my components are at.

I guess for now I will do it the old fashion way and record my stats for a few minutes then minimize and adjust.

Anyone willing to test if they can detect Riva's 2D vector? :D
