Today was a pretty good day, until about an hour ago when I was kicked out of the prison of elders level 34 right after finishing round 5.
As I descended down into the treasure room I was disconnected from the destiny servers and received an error code "vulture" which supposedly means the destiny servers are under the impression that I have no Xbox live subscription, or that my "permissions" to play this game must have changed, which doesn't make any sense.
Since disconnecting I've reset my router/xbox and I'm still unable to connect to destiny.
I've put up with connection issues since the day this game was launched, most of the time not thinking much of it because it's never really a big deal. Life happens, or in this case more specifically, Internet connection problems happen sometimes.
But now, after paying $65.69 on the game, and an additional $34.99 on DLC I'm being kept from playing the game I purchased, for what seems like no reason at all.
After researching to see if anyone else has experienced any similar problems I have found that I am not alone. With forum posts reaching back to October of 2014, (as far as I can find anyway) it would seem that bungie not only knows about the problem, but their "investigation" has gone as far as them posting on their help section of their website to suggest
Error Code: VULTURE
If you are not currently signed into your PlayStation Network or Xbox Live account, please do so now. If you are currently signed in, please check your PlayStation Plus/Xbox Live Gold subscription status. A PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold account is required to play Destiny. You can acquire a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership from the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store, respectively, or from participating retailers."

What the hell am I supposed to do with such advice. I'm forced to believe that Bungie simply does not care. What the hell happened you guys. Any suggestions?
Any comment would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance Guardians.
