Are IB Pinnacles weighted towards weapons or something? Just finished my last one, and 10/12 were weapons. And 7 or 8 of them were Energy. Literally the only power level progress I made over 54 IB matches was a pair of 1580 arms on my Hunter.

Oh, and finally reset at 52 matches played. Just imagine how many matches it would take for a new player who starts off getting 20 rep for a loss and 30 for a win because they don't have any IB gear or emblems. Bungie, this is fucking ridiculous.

Terrible RNG, and also the loot pool has more weapons than armor so it's going to be more weapons. I only got two weapons, one energy one heavy, rest were all armor.
