Breaking The 4th Wall: https://bIt.ly/recklessBT4W Hey everyone! It's Reckless and I am back with another Poll of The Week question. I make these polls to get the Destiny Communities input/opinion then I share them with everyone on my Destiny YouTube Channel Breaking The 4th Wall. I do these videos every Thursday 1 week after the question is asked to give the community a chance to respond. I post a lot of the comments in the video whether good or bad because all sides need to be heard. So please be very creative with your comments and your responses because your comment just might get featured! I will post the link to the video next week after we get enough input from the community.

  • 6 months ago i told everyone destiny 2 is really destiny 1.5. The beta in two weeks will confirm this and people are going to be disappointed (except for the top 1% who play everyday and don't play anything else). Everyone else will be disappointed and preorders will be cancelled.

      It's releasing on the two current-gen consoles as well as PC for the first time. It will be a financial success definitely. Subjectively speaking is an entirely different matter.

        • By judging how subpar D1 was and the success it got D2 will be amazing. Sad I put so many hours in D1 and going to be doing the same for D2

        • This is my guess: Sales numbers will be slightly less than Vanilla Launch or around on par with those numbers. I don't think D2 will blow Vanilla sales numbers out of the water. I also think that even if D2 sales numbers break even, it will not represent the kind of grand success Bungie would want you to believe it is. Consider this: Vanilla's sales numbers consisted ENTIRELY of sales on two brands of consoles: PS and Xbox. D2 will launch on three platforms: PC, XBONE, and PS4. If they sell the same number of copies of D2 as they did Vanilla, it simply means that they lost sales to console players who effectively quit the game or didn't re-up, and they broke even by selling the game to PC users instead. To say this differently, they will have expanded the availability of the game to other players, but were unable to expand their total customer base. And of course, this begins to look far worse if sales numbers of D2 don't even break even with those at launch of D1. Will it be a success? I think it'll be a success with certain members of the communities: Players who are hardcore, super sweaty, ultra competitive PVP players will probably love the game. Casuals who just log on a couple of times a week to run a strike will probably love the game. But the results will likely be a big mixed bag of nuts for those who lie in between those two groups - and I would assert that those players make up a majority of the community. For those players and players like myself, D2 is just the same old shit, just a different package. They didn't separate PVE from PVP, they went out of their way to develop the game exclusively for PVP, and will only try to "make it work" in PVE, meaning PVE is going to be playing second fiddle, and PVE players will just have to do what they can to get by. This effectively means that the loot-n-shoot aspect of this game is effectively dead because anything that makes you feel powerful in PVE will wreck balance in PVP. And that is part of what attracted me to this game in the first place. Overall, I'm going to say that its going to be a whole lot of MEH. It'll be like Dragon Age 2. As a stand alone game, it was a decent game. But was it better than the original (Dragon Age Origins) - not even CLOSE.

              • Let's get one thing straight: Destiny 2 [i]will[/i] be the game of September. Activision will pour a ton of money in marketing and advertising. It's going to sell a ton, no doubt about it. The [b]real[/b] issue is longevity. Everything they've shown so far shows that not much is deviated from D1, especially the end game loop. That's where the war on attrition begins, because that's when you'll lose a lot of players. They haven't changed too much from the formula, so there won't be that feel of freshness. Players will go "I feel like I've done this before, and I didn't like where it went last time, so I'm out". Standing the test of time like D1 did will be the challenge here.

                What standpoint are you coming from? A consumer or a marketer? Destiny 1 from a consumer standpoint was poor in all aspects. Destiny 1 from a marketer's standpoint was extremely successful for such a poorly developed game.

                  A successful flop 1.5 sound right, I could be wrong.

                • It's not going to do so well I think many players have been told BS.. Again.. I met two really cool US Southerners last night, one has pre ordered the Ultimate Destiny 2 edition. We got chatting but when I told him all PVP modes 4v4 he felt hurt and I felt like a f-wit for telling him.. but it's not on me @Bungie. The shocking thing is Most of your followers don't even know. It's f'n sad.. 4v4 is a joke, Less isn't more. More is More. Bungie said they invested in P2P hybrid server technology to improve performance yet they have cut 4 players from all PVP modes. Whats going to help lag in PVP New technology or Ctrl - Alt - Del for 4 players? Run the PC code on X1X.

                • I honestly think that it'll be like a fountain firework. Once it gets started up you'll see all the pretty flashes and noises that it has to offer, but it'll quickly fizzle out once it does what it was intended to do. Thing is, D1 did that pretty well a lot of times and I honestly don't see how D2 will be able to top that. It's not just gonna be a Destiny game, it'll be the [i]second[/i] Destiny game. That honestly sounds less appealing when you say it aloud.

                • I see Destiny 2 on consoles to get a substancial drop of players in favor of PC. So, my concern at this moment (and my bet for the future) is that console players will become 2nd class citizens (as happened to previous generation console players, ex: PS3) and all the 'competitive' fun will move to PC. I expect to see it as a success for PC (with a larger player base), but at the same time things will shrink in the console world.

                • I think the console launch will be under what it was for D1, but I think the PC launch in October will be a major success. I have a feeling some of the bigger PC streamers will be switching to primarily Destiny content after October.

                • When D1 launched I was in a clan with around 20 others. We all played with each other for years before and were very excited for Destiny. By the time HOW dropped there were 4 of us left, when TTK dropped I was all that remained. I have spoke to most of them asking if they are getting D2 and the answer is no by every one of them. No matter how much I tried selling the improvements that bungie made to D1 they are not going to be fooled again. I'm sure there are many people out there that feel the same.

                  • I honestly don't see the selling numbers being any where near some of the expansions let alone the Vanilla game. At this current moment they haven't done much to reel in the masses after the shambles that was the vanilla launch. Heck they have barely wowed the current playerbase.
