If you still think this was for nothing or an over reaction, you are clueless. Good day

  • So how many of you pulled it through and quit Destiny? Consumables are now sold through the Halloween Event. Bungie truly stated that DLC will not be free. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/destiny-microtransactions-and-expansions-can-co-ex/1100-6431944/

    [quote]Never, ever, should one's real life financial situation affect his ingame status.[/quote]That's a noble sentiment, but not particularly realistic, is it? Real life financial status affects your in-game status in all sorts of ways. Wealthy players are the ones more likely to be able to afford the game in the first place instead of having to borrow a copy or play at a friend's house. They can afford their own console instead of having to share with roommates or siblings. They can also afford aftermarket controllers, better TVs, headphones, a faster internet connection, and other hardware that provides a distinct in-game advantage. Someone who doesn't have to work a job to pay bills (i.e., students, NEETS, and the extremely wealthy) has a lot more time to play the game, allowing them the time to get better at the game and gain more (and better) items. Look, I'm just a volunteer forum moderator around here, not an official in any capacity, and please note that I'm expressing absolutely ZERO opinion on Eververse. I'm just saying -- I love the notion that real life financial status should not have any effect on in-game status, but it is just not realistic considering the way video games work in this day and age, and it makes an extremely poor basis for the argument that you're trying to make. Someone could use that same basis to say that students should be restricted from playing the game for longer than working folks can, or that the wealthy should be prohibited from purchasing a nice television. Those arguments sound ridiculous when you think about them, so what makes them any different from the argument you're making? And if this is truly the issue that you care about and want to remedy (though I suspect it is not), rather than complaining about consumables or starter packs for newbies, you should probably start by complaining about the things that ACTUALLY make a difference in game based on one's financial situation.

      Am I really the only one here that understands this, that this is (probably) simply referring to "Silver" as the consumable?

        [b][u]Note[/u][/b]: Feel free to call me an attention seeker, or anything along those lines. I am deeply worried that they will actually implement this and I truly want an idea of how many of us are actually quitting if they do so. With that been said... [b]Sign If You're Quitting [/b] [b]Upon The Release[/b] [b]Of The Material Mentioned Above[/b] Edit: [b][u]500+[/u][/b] Guardians has officially signed Edit: I will no longer keep track of the official signs. Im sure this has sent a clear message. Continue to sign, and let the replies express our concern. I'm with you guys. Your voices are being heard. ______________________________________________ New Thoughts from the OP To all the latest and greatest responses from the majority of the community that are opposed to what we are standing for, listen. Not every topic brought up, is one to be debated against. I do not mean that in a sense that either you are 100% right, or we are 100% right. I mean that in a sense that, if we naturally feel a certain way about something, then we are entitled to those emotions and/or opinions that we create. Not every topic needs to be an argument. It's wise to adhere to "the other side of the story". But a million different debates can be created off of one simple topic of Microtransactions. Me personally for example has played a game for over 10 years called "Runescape". I feel that, that is the greatest game I've ever played. They were originally against the thought of, getting an advantage in game from outside of the game. Whether it be "bots", purchasing currency or items from other players, and ofcourse selling exp if that ever became an option. Eventually, new owners come in and change everything. Times has changed and microtransactions is a huge market in any game. Now players that dedicated many hours to the game, and worked very hard for what they have obtained see that almost any item can now be bought through a form of microtransaction. A player of 500 hours played has what a player with 1000 hours played have, if they spent the right amount of money. I felt, there is no more pride in your gear. No more value. No more purpose if everyone has it. "When everyone is special, no one will be." - Syndrome, The incredibles. Lol There is a beautiful side to microtransactions that many people can agree with. But for those who cannot agree with this, has signed, and will sign. To those saying it's only emotes, and that they have said they will not be selling starter packs and all of those loot dropping consumables, and that we are making a huge deal out of this, understand that... Some of us foresee the possible future of this system, and we feel that "that possible future" will completely ruin the game for us for whatever reason we may have. This is similar to players not liking a specific update, and the "Mature" players in our community call these players "cry babies" or "salt bearers". Feel free to call us as you please, we both love and hate the game just as much as you do, we just have a disagreement on something. Don't try to force a certain way of thinking about this on us just because you see things otherwise. That's how wars start. Sorry for all the text. I hope every single person here passing by has an amazing day/night. Feel free to sign if the original comment still pertains to you. If not, then let it be, because this is not a debate.

        • To all of you that panicked, whined, cried, complained and threatened quitting over false speculation I say this... RETARDS!!! I told you so! Stop trying to read between the lines because you fail at it. Stop overreacting to someone's guess or hunch and finally Stop slamming bungie when you clearly don't possess all the facts! We now return you to your originally scheduled broadcast

          Just watch those consumables be stuff like jackolytes or flight of shadows. It'd be really cool if there was a character redisign consumable.

          • They are selling sparks of light, items that fully upgrade a subclass, exp boosters, and items that give you some luck in raids. Basically, stuff that prevents new players from having fun while playing the game.

              • It could be ammo synths and weapon parts. They did release a paragraph on weapon parts in the update. They said they were still insure on what to do but it sounded like they had something planned already. Could be this.

                Consumables does not necessarily mean that they will be selling anything to do with power, it could still be cosmetic items, so yes this is an overreaction. Btw I'm sure most of the community would also be fine if it was just level your subclass or get to level 25 items, that would be great ideas that cut the bullshit when levelling up a new character for noobs or for an extra character.

                • Personally ill hold off on any hype until more details are released. They might end up selling more of those boost-to-level-25 items, which seems fine to me.

                • "We’re not doing that. The files in question were actually first uncovered some time ago, well before the launch of Eververse Trading Company. They weren’t ever intended to be sold in exchange for Silver. What you’re seeing are remnant files for Three of Coins or Moldering Shard like items that would have been available from Xûr. Ultimately, the team decided that they didn’t have a place in the game, and cut them from the experience. You’re seeing some dust and echoes from the cutting room floor. Files that get datamined aren’t official sources of news, though we understand why they are intriguing." Source: 10/15/2015 update devblog. /thread

                    • Check the news I was correct [quote]Did the thought of consumables similar to Jackolyte ever cross your mind? All your links to the database point to the same container that all the current consumables are in. These data mined items could be planned or reconsidered and not intended for sale. Do you think it is at all possible that the Hunter, Titan, Warlock Level 25 Starter Packs where shelved in favor of the Spark of Light (which by the way has the same icon) and was given to everyone? Are you intentionally trying to mislead people or is your post just copy pasta? See below.
