The community on this forum is not what I was expecting.

There is so much entitlement among the users here that I feel bad for bungie. Combine that with the constant pissing contest between xbox and playstation and it's really bringing this community down. Call it beta, call it a demo, call it early access sneek peek.. I don't care what you call it but I have put around 10 hours into this beta so far (just my warlock) and I was able to get some buddies in as well. All for free really, the 5 for my pre order goes towards my final purchase so I don't see what people are bitching about as far as content goes. There is more than enough content here to let you know if this is the game for you. The only major critiques I do have though are lack of penalization for leaving games early, the damage indicator could use some work and joining/leaving fire teams needs some streamlining. Something I'm interested in as well is whether or not these pvp matches are hosted on dedicated servers or peer hosted. I've noticed some matches I feel like a god with my shotty and just can't be stopped. Then other times there is significant delay between my shot and my kill. All in all I think bungie did a great job in letting us try a new game that is kinda hard to explain and really needed some hands on experience to understand what bungie was bringing to the table. TLDR: how about a thank you to bungie for an amazing peak at what we will be able to experience come fall. Instead of bitching bc you ONLY got 10 hours for simply putting a fully refundable 5 dollars to support devs who are looking to break the standard fps mold. PS: I'd love to start to see some constructive posts. Not "omg bungie this is not enough".

    Maybe if you where there to see what Bungie's promised you'd understand. Edit: And by the way. I hope you were referring to #Destiny.

    • Were you not here when the Reach forum was new? When the beta was going on? This is nothing new.

      • I live in Canada, and since everyone has their stores in the -blam!-ing USA, we have to pay full price for pre-orders, and then wait two weeks after launch for it to be shipped. but thats beside the point. i havent played the beta yet, since im on vacation (GOD DAMN FAMILY TRIPS PLANNED THREE MONTHS IN ADVANCE) but when i get back on the 25th i will definitely be playing. i hopped on the forums yesterday to see if i could play it all in two days. the answer: yes, since i dont give two shits for multiplayer. i am a little disappointed to see the level cap isnt raised from the Alpha, and our only zone is still Old Russia, but they might unlock more during the maintenance. basically as soon as i heard "WAAH -blam!- U BUNGIE ALL U ADDED WAS 4 MOAR STORY MISSIONS -blam!- STORY WAAAH" i was overjoyed. #StoryMissionFTW

        • This is my third video games forum I've been too. It's truly all the same. I heard the DOTA boards are much more worse than anybody can imagine. This is, of course, the internet. Where humans can be something they are not in real life and say stuff they wouldn't dream of saying in real life. In other words, forums brings out the worse in people.

          • you 're so right about about the bitching and that stupid console war. I have not been able to stop playing this game since the start of the Beta (only to go to work ofc ;)) so yes they did a great job on this, and the wait for september the 9th is going to seem sooooo long after this taste. It really made me hungry for more.

                • This community needs more people like you! All these new people are basically new faces to me, and they all act like they're hot shit. Do I want them to leave? No! The more the merrier, but they need to understand what's going on here and some respect.

                • Cheers mate. Been saying this from the start, this beta has been Amazing. Period. End of story. If you are complaining about a beta that you are getting free access too please uninstall the beta, then break your console, because you deserve it.

                      • I would also like to see a penalty for leaving games early. Quitters have always been a plague.

                      • I agree, although that I am not pleased with a 4 day beta for Xbox, that I will only get to play for 2 days because I have obligations, I feel that there has been a lot of banter between the users of this form. It is my opinion that as the game comes into full release the community will come together, since once everyone has the game there will be no need to dispute and all will speak of different in game moments, quests, items, or anything else. Hopefully it will be at this time that the only remaining trace of the bantering will be that of old posts, and a swapped mindset of longing to all play together in the great world Bungie has created for us.

                        • Yea unfortunately there is a lot of noise to sift through. There are some good people here though, try reading in the bungie or community forums, and look for mentors and ninjas. If your new, welcome. There is a bit of a learning curve but worth it

                        • I agree man. The number of entitled children on this forum is overwhelming. I truly pity the mods and the devs if they read some of the utter tripe posted here. My only complaint about the game thus far is that I am terribly bored......of waiting until Sept 9 :(.

                                  I think my hours of gameplay indicate my thanks, but just in case. Thankyou bungie. Bungie do not owe us any of this because its a preorder bonus. I only had the kill delay for the alpha, and i totally agree with the drop out penalty, but they probably left that out incase they had problems on their end.
