Anyone else just suddenly lost interest in this game?

I have 2 characters around the 550 mark and I was perfectly happy playing up until last Tuesday or Wednesday. After that I can't bring myself to put destiny 2 in my disc tray whatsoever😂🤔. I looked at the details for festival of the lost also to try bring back the spark to me but it just doesn't want to return. I think I'm actually quitting destiny without even having to try and bring myself off of it. Edit: Wow. First time trending😁. Thanks for all the mature feedback. I was expecting comments like "delete your characters and game and stop looking for attention" or the "git gud" trolls but no. There is some really interesting feedback. Thanks for that👍

  • Yeah the feeling is mutual. I rarely complain on Destiny but something needs to change. Look I dont mind the grind. Whats turning me away now is the lack of reward. 98% of my prime drops were Edge Transits. I dont disagree that its a decent grenade launcher but seriously its to excessive. Yeah it was funny at first but now its old. Second while ive been lucky,to get lord of wolves and queen breakers, every exotic ive recieved has been a y1. Many people agree. They are practically giving this game away now. What does that tell you?

    No you are not alone. The game feels like work. Ironically the last thing I want to do after a 10-12 hour day is relax by playing Destiny 2, which now feels like a second -blam!-ing job. The grind is excessive and not meant for any but the top 1-2% of players. Good job Bungie, you -blam!-ing morons. Way to kill your IP. How about you actually value the time we play in your game. I predict that this place will be quieter than a tomb when all the other games come out between now and Christmas. The “middle” ground of “casual hardcore” players, like myself, who are tired of the bullshit over 4 years and the lack of Bungie actually listening to the majority of their fan base, will have abandoned this unrewarding, brilliant but horribly flawed game. I was angry that I couldn’t be raid ready the first week it was out, due to the excessive grind and time commitment needed. I know that even as good as my raid team is we were never going to compete for worlds first. The knowledge of the fact the I couldn’t even take part due to the ridiculous grind [b][u]and[/u][/b] short time span just killed my interest in the game. It has barely recovered to a “meh”. Now I am playing this broken mess once a week and it feels, ok? I am in awe of the environments, gunplay and music. As usual top notch. The dreaming city is amazing. However once RDR2 is released on the 26th I am gone. Probably for good, I am not interested in the half-assed fix for MWC’s or Bungie’s ridiculous tinkering with a broken progression system. In catering to the top 1-2% they are going to lose everybody else. The irony is Bungie still think that they released a great DLC. Compared to D2 Vanilla even Superman 64 would have looked like a superior game to start off with. TL;dr. Sorry for the rant, also bored with D2.

    • Well it is healthy to take breaks from it. It makes coming back better because you remember just how much you enjoy the game. I'm just about there. I really want to re-set my infamy only 2 more levels to go.

    • Yea. I hit a wall this week also. All grind with no payoff it feels like. Just going through the motions until RDR2 drops then i'll take a break.

    • Since Forsaken released the game feels like a second job to me. Once that started happening it stopped being as fun and I could care less if I played. I definitely stopped playing on all 3 characters. I do 1 per week now if I even finish all my milestones on that one.

      • Lost interest in July. Keep trying to come back, but I just don’t enjoy it anymore. Forums are still fun.

      • Suddenly....? No.... I got sick of it after like 2 weeks. Came back a couple times but never really played much because I got bored so quick. I can’t bring myself to get forsaken. Just sick of the bs.

        • i lost interest because i have to equip whatever is higher then what i have, i still play the game to get my light level up but it's not fun. masterwork cores without forsaken are so rare, but even with forsaken i imagine i'd still be doing the same thing... no longer carry around weapons or armor that i like, just throwing on whatever is higher then my equipped...

          • The grind is beginning to make the game boring for me, especially with the lack of Masterwork Cores. Gambit is especially becoming very dull. The invasion kills really ruin the experience. I will probably stop playing Gambit in the near future. Quickplay is an absolute mess. Crucible is another activity on my list of activities that I expect to stop playing.

            • for me the realization that 50% of the game is unreachable for the casual gamer...seeds of light rng, and mc's rare by the day...this is a game that requires constant hours grinding or playing with your team for all activities to increase the chance of rng...good game but I am resigning to the fate of time to look for a game more my style (RDR2) which does not require PVP.

              • I play for enjoyment. I don't have the luxuries other players have like good clan mates and times to raid or nightfall. No complaints about that but I'm not a great pvp player so to me the game is limited to what a solo or fireteam of 2 can do. It is what it is but Bungie chose who they want to play their games. Just don't understand all the restrictions and annoying tweaks to the game. Just let us play how we want to. Merge D1 weapons and remaster its content to keep things fresh. Why not? D1 has a lot of good content that would be interesting with the changes in gameplay with the new weapons and things like that. Just don't get this nonsense by Bungie

                I think it's generally like politics with this game. A small tiny minority are crazy alt left, a small tiny minority are crazy alt right. The biggest portion is the people whom really don't give a rats a**, they wan't to go to school/higher education /work. Do what they need to, go home and relax and not care about anyone else. Its the same with this game A small tiny minority thinks that grinding 18 hours a day on a game is rewarding and earns you for throttling progression. A small tiny minority thinks that just logging should give you all rewards. However the fast majority want the gaming "hobby" meaning like other games, no progression throttling, you can jump on for 1-2 hours every other day or may be 4 hours a night but there can be progression for both. Its not difficult, this is bungie whom works for Activision whom have Blizzard, for pity's sake, one - two hour conference call between blizzard and bungie could come up with an amazing solution. Off the bat, selecting difficulty in lost sectors, the higher tier drops +1 power item (essentially like the bounty) you could either do solo or fireteam. Or like other mmo's out there, after the world's first maybe a few weeks later release multi tiered raid, like a story version because as by statistical fact (console trophy) only a small fraction of the player base wants to do the raid as they are now. I know I'll be jumping straight on to do a run of a raid if it was without stupid lfg requirements and hours to complete, like an larger feeling mission and yet the hardcores can still say they completed it on the harder tier, plus the best gear only drops for the higher tier.

                • Yup. Done. Finally figured there’s a whole lot of content I’ll never be able to touch (Luna’s Howl, Broadsword, Not Forgotten). Don’t have the time or patience for this game anymore. Time to move on and spend my hard earned money on better games.

                • No reason to play The content is there but there are no rewards Thanks to streamers and you tubers there is no grind, exotics and catalyst are non existent the grind is pointless because you know you are not going to get anything

Lost interest even to log in

                    • I stopped playing once I realized they make you farm materials to infuse weapons. Fruck this game, red dead is coming.

                        I hit the wall yesterday. Completed almost every activity every week since Forsaken launched but upon loading the game yesterday to finish the Crucible milestone for "powerful gear" I sighed and thought to myself what's the point? The gear I get at the end of 5 matches *might* be +1 level more than gear I have? Ugh. And on top of that I can’t infuse the gear due to the MW core economy. Don't get me wrong. I'm not hating on the game. Overall I've enjoyed Forsaken but the intense grind has worn me down. Bungie listened too much to the hardcore players and streamers and swung the grind-fest pendulum a little too far this time. I'll still play the game and will check in for FoTL next week, and possibly IB if the weapons are cool. But generally I'm gonna dip in and out of Destiny and try some other games. It's healthier that way. Currently playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey and having a rip-roaring time. It's like a breath of fresh air. RDR2 too soon. Can't wait for that.

                        • I was saying this 3 weeks ago. It all seemed great at first but by week 3 I saw the writing on the wall. Right back to playing 1-2 days a week and you’re done till Tuesday

                          • I was happily playing the game before forsaken tbh. People are saying how good forsaken is... but it really made me lose interest tbh. It changed destiny, but it didnt seem like it was for the best. I think the dreaming city was the biggest mistake. Ive played destiny since it first ever came out, since alpha, and I found forsaken the worst expansion ever since. I feel like they could have made it a lot better. For instance, if Uldren was suffering from an illness other than the possession of riven. They could have made Uldren a good guy, or given us a choice to spare him or not. The dreaming city is good, but I lost motivation to play it because it doesnt seem like Destiny. It doesnt seem good. It’s like bungie listened to the players, but none of the original players. Its like they listened to newer players that only came back for cayde’s death or havent been playing that long. But it’s just an opinion, no attacking please >~<

                            • All the loot sucks. Either not dropping reliably enough to be excited or expecting it or just the same garbage legendaries. They really need to quadruple the amount of legendaries and exotics each expansion. Not enough loot diversity.

                            • The loot part of this loot shooter is unrewarding. Just as most of my friends are finally raid ready, interest is falling off. Bungie could have done this better.
