This is what happens when people over-hype themselves.

This maintenance period was something that was told to us beta players from the beginning of this process. We were told something near a week in advance that there was a scheduled period of time the beta wouldn't be available because of network fixing and server-side things being done on Bungie's end. When did it become a secret update period that nobody knew about? People all over this forum have, for the last several days, been talking about what they want or even expect to be seen after that maintenance was up. Now that it's over and, guess what, nothing was added to the beta, there are people with torches and pitchforks looking to lynch someone for something they were never told would happen. Why do we as gamers make this so hard to enjoy? I'm seriously curious as to where this sense of entitlement has come from.

    • Ppl want an update because they feel the beta is becoming boring. If the beta is boring to them and the game comes out in a month, will the game be any better? I personally doubt it. I think if you feel the game is boring now, chances are you won't like the full game that much. But that's still to be seen and obviously that's just my opinion. I think the game is alright. But Ppl are starting to question that. So Let them question it and ask for updates. Some have already paid for the game so that's where the entitlement comes. Is it justified? Idk, but probably not. You're paying to play the game, not create it. So if you don't like it...

        • There's a difference between updates and maintenance. Updates are usually when new content is added to the games. Maintenance is when there are issues or bugs that are needed to be fixed. Get with the program ppl. People are asking why there wasn't any new content... well its because they didn't UPDATE the game. UPDATE does not mean Maintenance/ vice versa

In my line of work I see it all to often yet I'm the one who comes with a stereotype because of the profession I chose. Drives me crazy

              The reason is likely because Bungie themselves tweeted out new event and awards would come after the maintenance period. Here, these are their exact words. @Tharizdun2012 The Return if the Destiny Beta will feature special events, permanent rewards, and some other surprises. Sorry but that sounds like we could have atleast gotten one little addition.

              • People are babies, dude. They went level 15 in the BETA when the cap is 20. That's ridiculous. "hey! Bungie! Give us the full game in the beta!"

                  Well they need to chill, the beta came a day early. Maybe surprises will arrive on the originally scheduled days

                    • Bungie will probably give other platforms a chance to get to PS4 player levels before adding new content to the "Beta" if at all.

                    • Do people not even read the news and Bungie's tweets? They've said repeatedly that they'll be having additional things to do and surprises in the coming days. It's not even supposed to have been back yet. They are being silly, but it seems you might be in the dark on the fact that there will be more than is available right now. That doesn't mean it's going to be something huge, but hey, even if it's a goal to kick the soccer ball into, I'd be happy.

                      • I was really betting on more levels. Since they didn't, I'm itching even more to get the finished product. Bungie played it smart and I'm still happy I get the crucible and iron banner

                          • Well said sir, well said. I feel like Bungie gave me all the information I needed, then shoved it down my throat once more, threw it up, and then down the throat again for good measure. If people didn't know about the planned maintenance, they still have dial-up. Wanting increased levels? Was never said once. I sued to post on these kinds of boards all the time, but stupidity and trolls made me leave. Get your info and facts straight, that way there is no room for disappointment! Well done with the Beta Bungie. Haven't had this much fun in a game in a long time.

                          • I clicked on this post EXPECTING another "entitled self absorbed rant" about Destiny tbh! What I got instead was a well thought out message summing up my feelings about my entire experience surfing bungie.net forums for the first time (I joined when I pre ordered Destiny). I think, (and this is coming from someone who's been gaming since the old "Atari days" the 79 after my GT is my birthyear ;P) the new generation is simply spoiled by the amazing visuals, gameplay, and storytelling available in the modern forms of video games. Me? I'm amazed by the new tech and grateful for the strides they've made. Sure I want a good product who dosent? But I'm inclined towards patience with those who make my favorite hobby possible. I know there's a lot of mature younger gamers who feel the same way too. I just haven't met a lot on bungie.net...sounds like you have a similar problem OP. My sympathies! *srry for wall of text*

                              Mobs feel a tad harder to kill and seem to do more damage, seems like a smidgen more heavy armour (edit meant to say ammo)is dropped during boss fights.... but that could well be my imagination.

                                  Deej mentioned some surprises after the maintenance. They will probably all come on Friday though because I haven't found a single one.
