Raid Power Level... WHAT?

Edit: TL;DR - The thing that pisses me off is that people who used glitches and exploits to get higher light are rewarded by having a massive advantage over people like me who grinded my ass off for like 70+ hours. THAT is unfair. So I know they bumped the light up due to people reaching unexpectedly high light; what they did not say (conveniently) is that it'd be so hard that normal players don't stand a chance. The raid STARTS at 550, yet despite playing every single day after work and on my days off, amassing well over 100h on Forsaken alone, completing every daily and weekly challenge and I'm only 530, and my friends with similar playtimes are all 530-535. What this means is basically, WE'RE SCREWED! The people who cheated their light up are rewarded, meanwhile legitimate, commited players like me and my friends have no reasonable chance of completing the raid. I really wanted that jacket, but now I know Bungie don't want regular people to have nice things, they just cater to the cheaters and Twitch streamers (although it's not the Streamer's faults). Really killed my excitement...

    • Lets get one thing straight...Recommended light for raid was 540 (entry 520)...days before the raid dropped players glitched into the raid looting all the chests for high level raid gear (cheating). So how does Bungie respond?...THEY RAISE THE LIGHT LEVEL OF THE RAID TO 550 (entry 530) IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE??? So the cheaters dont get punished...THEY'RE ALREADY HIGH ENOUGH LEVEL TO ACCESS THE RAID BECAUSE THEY CHEATED...and the rest of us have to wait??? -Thats almost as stupid as adding Masterwork Cores to infusion costs...but nobody can actually be THAT dumb!!!...oh wait...

      • I don't care about difficulty. I care that there are teams out there like Datto's who blatantly glitched and cheated their ways to getting a rare emblem and Bungie doesn't care.

        • Didn’t people only get to one chest? So only like one drop? Meaning the glitch puts them at most maybe one light higher than everyone else? Pretty sure any of the teams taking worlds first seriously went nowhere near the glitch too.

            I think your excitement will be just fine, when you're ready. It has always been this way. Don't make Obi-wan look like a fool... he trusts in you ...in the force. He told me you would learn patience.

          • It was pretty discouraging. Me and my Bro spent 2 weeks completing every milestone on every character. Swapping the best weapons back and forth.. still no luck.. since we didn't exploit the power grind were stuck around 535 on all characters.. half the time the "powerful reward" would drop a weapon that was lower than the current weapon we had equipped.. was really looking forward to completing this raid on day 1/ first weekend.. but it's just not going to happen. Feel like I wasted 2 weeks of my life grinding to new raid ready, but RnG just wasnt on my side, and I dont condone glitches and exploits

          • Sigh. It really doesn’t boost you up that much more. They just play a lot even if you were the same light, you and your friends most likely wouldn’t have been first PC master race, we are just better players :)

          • Maybe they’ll bring the level down after world first so that everyone else can do it and it won’t matter than the cheaters have an edge because it’s not a competition anymore

              • You could have also glitched; no where did anyone say you can’t do that. Also, you might have to wait 1 more week before you can beat the raid, OH NO A CHALLENGING ENDGAME AND A REASON TO PLAY ITS NOT LIKE WE HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR THAT FOR 5 YEARS.

                  I'm in the exact same boat. Grinding my dick off legitimately only to be 532 while streamers using engram glitches get up to 550+. If I remember correctly the first encounter is 560 recommend light. After a while I got pissed off and stopped raiding. Which is saying something because I love raiding..

                • The high LL is really bad on Bungie's part. It should have been 530 or something. Difficulty should be based on skills and mechanics, not glitch exploiting and LL (artificial difficulty).

                  • ‪Ive been no life-ing forsaken and I’m still at 545, seeing how well coordinated teams of 560 guardians are immensely struggling how do you expect a bunch of under levelled randoms picked together in the forums to complete it? Please Bungie reduce the light requirement please. ‬

                  • Did the clan that completed it 1st use gear acquired through the glitch? Thus already having the high level raid gear needed to complete it? If so then there needs to be a do over.

                    • Tbh it hasnt even been fun to watch imo. Ive been desperate to jump back in and watching the news and raid, hoping THIS would be what I needed to see....but its almost meme levels of WTF Mechanic heavy, massively under levelled and the only people that can actualy compete and try it are people with A) no job or B) are youtubers/streamers. The fact the only reason they can do it is also because they abused the engram mechanics, despite Bungie saying please dont do it or you wont get engrams for the next month or so....as i they care they are getting raid loot now LOL Bungie logic FTW. Now with VOG there was some mystery and intrigue, and although under leveled it seemed engaging. 99% of people watching this raid, from reading the chat, have little interest in doing it. Being 12 hours on 1 section seems a bit dumb and im amazed how the last 2 raids have had light levels increased so high, to create the difficulty. So much in Forsaken seemed really good but some massive balls ups have taken place too and the last subclass being in th raid is kinda lolz. Bungie listens but continues to isolate its player base. TLDR Abuse any glitches or loot in the future as Bungie dont punish people, and you wont be able to even do end game at launch unless u do..... Even fully leveled up this raid will be a chore.... just doesnt have that fun factor that even an under leveled VOG had imo

                      • I see a lot of salt about people abusing exploits for an advantage. In sports, if that happens, like with Armstrong, the title was stripped from them. If these teams used exploits to obtain the emblem, same case. I haven't watched Datto, nor much of others (streamers are generally bad for the community besides a few) but from the feedback from others a worlds first completion and the belt shouldn't be awarded for those who cheated. Just my honest opinion but here we are getting punished for naming ddos perpetrators and "ruining" an image of no shaming on the forums. With bungie, cheat all you want. Hell ddos that next match. There's no punishment, you'll be awarded. In the end, it's a damn game but still it will never be a big competitive arena game. It's what it is, it's just sad that this is the way it is.

                        • I agree the cheaters have an advantagen but its also bungies fault, they can detect who cheated (i mean if you had raid gear before the raid came out its pretty obvious) and they can probably see who opened 100’s of prime engrams, they can and should have just given them a power reset yesterday right before the raid came out. Cheating/exploiting/cheesing shouldnt be left unpunished, it will make people do it again next time.
