Nerfing things based on popularity has got to go.

Just as the title says, just be happy people are still playing your game. If people prefer certain weapons over others because they are better don’t bring the better weapons down to the level of the weaker less used weapons. Try the opposite and bring the less used weapons to a place where people want to use them. I think this has always been a huge problem and has been a top bullet point for community complaints, but has never been addressed. If something is broken then ok fix it and there’s lots of bugs you could fix but knocking weapons down a peg or two just because people like using them seems pretty backward to me.

  • They nerfed the glow on gambit jadestone because glow was very popular.

  • Bungie should instead buff the most unpopular weapon each season. Focus on positive reinforcement.

  • It's just Bungie using the weapons as an excuse not to change their gameplay design. It's been like that for years now. Look at Witherhoard. In endgame PvE content, all ads spawn as a group, in set locations, and move in the same direction. Instead of thinking of new ways to spawn in ads, they would find it easier to just nerf our primary way of dealing with this scenario. In this case, Witherhoard.

  • I mean when the devs are stating they are changing 27 exotics and20 out of the 27 exotics changed are not actual meaningful changes u know there is an issue with the development team. They are afraid to make things strong and I have no idea why. The stronger things are the more options u have the more options u have the more fun the game becomes. They have to stop worrying about pvp balance so much and make the game fun.

    • Blame the game being FTP & catering to it casual player base.

      • Outdated enemy's are a bigger issue that Witherhoard. Don't spawn a entire raids worth of adds through two doors and I won't plug those doors with Witherhoard. PVP players need to walk around the puddle.

          Game is being ran by by a circus and whatever the worst idea is, gets put in the game.

          • Only weapon they need to seriously ruin is Jotunn... enough said. Jotunn needs to -blam!- go.

            • Keep in mind, a lot of the nerf's also happened because of people whining and crying.

              • It wouldn't be an issue if they actually made every kind of weapon optimal for DPS. Like snipers are a joke or at the very least the last resort once you're out of heavy but their damage is almost laughable

                • They have to force metas if not players continue to use the same gear. Which leads to more crying similar to right now where players demand a switch up.

                • The only way it could be justified is if the adjusted enemy stats and numbers to compensate. Which they'll never do

                • What if usage is based purely on fun factor rather than just being OP. That should be considered. Like Bungie killing the fun in their video game.

                      The whole reason we use the weapons is that they actually work for the intended purpose. We cant help it that Arbalest is a multi tool and actually is usuable in any pve content. If Bungie doesnt want us using a small sample of weapons than increase the efficacy of the other weapons. This isn't rocket science. They will continue to nerf weapons into the ground to the point people wont want to play the game. It's difficult to understand how that much talent in Bellevue cant seem to understand the player base.

                      • Lol I remember when they said they weren't going to do that and were going to try and balance underperforming weapons. Nothing in the game was broken, would've been nice had they stuck to that statement 😥

                          Instead of nerfing the popular weapons, BUFF THE GARBAGE ONES. There's a reason half the exotics aren't used

                            It’s more simple than you think. They just want to sell you a season or DLC so the old stuff is made weaker than the new stuff. Isn’t a new dungeon coming in a week?

                            • At this point, with the vast array of abilities, weaponry, etc, it is painfully apparent that Bungie is over their heads in trying to balance a game that is just bloated beyond belief. Also, PvP and its sandbox need to be completely severed from the main hub of the game. I love D2, but the game and the company need a major overhaul and rework.

                            • Nerfs should be based on RNG. That way, like Pinnacle drops, the one item that least needs to be nerfed, would be nerfed six or seven times consecutively. Working as intended.

                              Hey bungo here's a novel thought, how about instead of crippling the player every chance you get you fix some of these glitches and broken bosses that have been around since you put them in the game, yeah? I mean Garden is a glitch filled mess that is nearly unplayable and you won't do squat about that, not to mention the other raid bosses who will just randomly become invincible. I've never seen a company that so actively works against it's players before

                            • Witherhoard has had its time in the sun, and while it lasted, it was a no brainer. That’s what happens to all of our favourite weapons…until the next one emerges. Gally was reintroduced to drum up interest and increase player numbers; and it worked a treat. There have been so many of our favourites nerfed into doorstops, and then, later, recycled. It’s the BHQ way. It’s what they do. It’s what they’ve always done. And it’s going to happen again, ad nauseam. Suros, Vex M, then Thorn…ToM (🤬), Icebreaker, Luna, Mountaintop, NF (HC), Black Hammer / Spindle / Whisper, etc. - to name but a few. Dangle a carrot… It’s manipulation writ large. Slot machine management. Hook ‘em… Dangle a carrot… Feed the addiction… Rinse. Recycle. Repeat. Crafting: once we’ve grinded our g-roll favourite guns…and use ‘em because that’s what we like to do! Begs the logical question: how long before they get sunset, too? My vault is full of ‘just in case’ weapon rolls…or guns used for specific roles. BHQ flood us with recycled stuff, some of which is ‘keepable’ - just in case!? They keep us guessing…on our back foot…fomo-driven…just in case. Slot machine management. The forums are ablaze with disenfranchised players…more so than the usual list of moans and groans. There’s an edge to things now. After all the nonstop nonsense and mismanagement by BHQ, even the main body of the BDF have retreated into the shadows. [i]Where’s this going?[/i] Switch to… [b]BHQ Emergency Meeting[/b] 🤥 Underling 1: (shrieks) Sir, Sir, they’re revolting!! Boss A: Yes, ‘they’ are. Underling 2: Sir, they’re serious this time… Boss A: cue <crickets> Underling 1 / 2: Sir?… Boss B: Launch Operation Icebreaker. Underling 1: …but Sir?… Boss A: (snaps) Do It! Now! SMH 🙄 Winter’s coming! ❄️🐲❄️ TLDR: 🍋 Cheers! 🫡 MDGA - it’s too late…

                              • Bungie can't balance anything correctly so they nerf things instead of raising other things up.... been doing it for years now. It will never end

                              • The most used weapons are often the best weapons. if we buff the worst weapons to be on par with the best, we are increasing the level of power in the game across the board. that is power creep.

                                • Thing is though, Majority of the time something is super popular is because of how high it stands above everything else and buffing everything else wont change anything, That weapon will still remain at the top until SOMETHING happens to it that makes people actually swap to something else. Power creeping is not the answer although I'm sure everyone would love for everything to be as OP as possible.
