I’m not a Destiny 1 veteran. I got into the franchise when Destiny 2 released because my friends loved the first game and wanted me to experience the series too. A few years ago, they bought me the Destiny Collection so I could still experience what it was like, and I’ve started going back to the first one more and more. While I’ve poured countless hours into Destiny 2, I’ve seen the game become more and more complicated over time, almost more-so it seems than the first one, and while I love some of the new editions to the story and game mechanics that Destiny 2 has introduced, Destiny 2 feels almost weaker compared to Destiny 1. I mostly play my warlock, and in D2 I’ve reached the Light Level cap, I’ve done almost all of the endgame content at least once, and yet my blueberry of a warlock in D1 kinda feels more stable and easier to use. I’m really excited for Witch Queen, but I don’t want Bungie to think that by making the game more complex, it’ll become better, because I don’t think that’s the case. I love getting to set up builds so maximize my character, but at the same time I feel so fragile having to rely on a specific set of mods in the right spots. I think what I’m trying to say is please stop pushing more and more into the mod system. Destiny is a power fantasy game, I shouldn’t feel “weak” when I don’t have a specific mod on. Mods should feel like a little bonus, not a necessity to enjoying the game to its full potential.

Almost? Nah, it's definitely weaker. I guess you can mantle in D2, but other than that? D1 was the better game, even at the end when they started down the road of ruining PvP.
