Fanboys defenses, and why this shit is garbage and inexcusable.

Defense #1: "[i]It's only been out for seven hours. Why are you angry that you have to level up? It's like that every DLC."[/i] Yes, it's been out for seven hours, and the only DLC related thing I've done is kill powerful enemies with power weapons for quest steps. The main meat of the DLC, which is the forge, requires a power level that will take at least another week or two of milestones to even comfortably participate in. I don't want to do the same shit I've been doing for the past 2 months to play the new content. Just imagine if the first story mission of forsaken launched at level 50 with a 500 recommended light. I came into this update thinking I was going to grind the forge and get some new gear. Turns out, I have to grind old shit still just to even [i]consider[/i] grinding the forge. Defense #2: [i]"The annual pass was only 30 dollars, that means each update was roughly 10 dollars each. What did you expect?"[/i] See, I didn't pay 10 dollars for black armory. I paid [b][i][u]THIRTY.[/u][/i][/b] YOU HAVE TO PAY 30 DOLLARS OUT OF THE GATE TO PLAY BLACK ARMORY. AND THIS IS WHAT WE GET FOR PAYING THIRTY DOLLARS. THEY ARE NOT SOLD SEPERATELY. My friend, who got the DLC this morning, dropped THIRTY DOLLARS to play this wack ass update. There is NO EXCUSE. Defense #3 [i]"This isn't an expansion, though. Don't treat it like one."[/i] Yes, the -blam!- it is an expansion. You have to pay money for additional content that expands the game for you and adds new activities. That is DLC. It is an [i]expansion.[/i] A terrible one. Defense #4 [i]"It's just the first day. More is coming later on."[/i] More content [i]later,[/i] doesn't excuse what we have [i]now.[/i] What we have [i]now,[/i] is an activity that barely anyone is able to complete because for some odd reason, they wanted to set the light level to 15 above what the max was [i][b]yesterday.[/b][/i] By the time the raid and the second forge come out, most of us will just be nearing the point where we can actually beat the [i]first[/i] damn forge. If I drop 30 dollars on something, I expect to be able to play the content it brings. I can't do Black Armory Forges, which was the main -blam!-ing selling point. I'm not high enough yet. I have to keep running the same milestone hamster wheel that I've been running since last expansion until I am. That isn't good. That isn't fair. The verdict is: If you haven't bought the annual pass, then DO NOT BUY IT UNTIL: *They lower the light requirements of the forge and allow people to start playing and grinding what they just -blam!-ing paid for. *They sell the expansions separately for 10 dollars. *Until every content rollout up til March has released. This literally feels like a free update with a 30 dollar coat on. Keep in mind, this cost more than Rise of Iron from D1. Let that sink in. This is unacceptable. I don't think Destiny has ever put this much of a bad taste in my mouth.

  • They told you that it wasn't going to be a DLC. You didn't listen. You are unhappy because you failed to adjust your expectations to what it was that Bungie clearly said they intended to make. Not because Bungie somehow failed to deliver on what they promised. Your unhappiness is your fault. If I invite you to my house for a steak dinner, and I prepare steak....I'm not responsible for the fact that you wanted fish. Especially when I told you that steak was on the menu.

    • They literally said they were gonna drip feed the content over the season, dont expect to be able to do the end game content comfortably on the first week, by the end of the year your getting 30 dollars worth of content, the content your getting from black armory will be 10 dollars worth of content spread through the season. How a out this one... dont preorder 3 dlcs from bungie after all they have done with dlcs. If they release 4 shit DLCs and 3 decent ones over 2 games, what do you think preordering 3 small expansions will hold for you? If you hate it, to bad if you had a bit of common sense you would have waited to purchase the season pass.

    • Of course you leave out the biggest fact, probability because you have now answer to it. Black Armory was advertised as an add on to the [b]END GAME CONTENT[/b]. The endgame for this update is from 600-650. If you are below 600, of course you aren’t going to get into it day one but guess what? Just because your favorite youtubers/streamers are doing the new activities the first day does not mean you have to. Why is this all so difficult for you kids to understand?

      Ok but you didn’t pay 30 dollars for black armory. You either paid 10 dollars for each of the three new expansions or you paid 30 dollars for black armory jokers wild and penumbra, meaning that you only have 1/3 of the content you paid for. And it’s not even that because black armory isn’t fully out. For the record, I also think it’s dumb what they did for the forge, but I also think it’s excusable because most o the player base will be able to do it within about a week or 2. I also don’t think it warrants going apeshit and saying this is the worst thing to ever be released

      • OP calls the “expansion” garbage, yet still plays with it. Probably will do so more. Why are you at 612 light, presumably to acquire black Armory gear, if you think the content is inexcusable?

        • They did say multiple times that it wasn’t a typical expansion. You only have yourself to blame for not doing any research before impulse buying the pass

            • Asking for money while promising more content later is what Bungie has been doing since the beta of D1. Really, it’s on you if you’re still falling for it. Warframe is a better Destiny than Destiny ever was.

              • The community is the reason we keep getting Trash DLCs, We criticize Bungie over & over and yet we keep throwing $ @ the screen everytime they decide to milk us, Forsaken hadn't even come out and they were already pushing an Annual Pass down our throats, and we literally had no idea what were being sold, but now we act all surprised and Pretend we had nothing to do with all this players should start wising up to Bungie's content Offerings, im not telling you what to do with your money, but if you want quality content instead of Trash like this Black Armory BS, if you want the game to improve with every content drop not every other content drop, then stop preordering all this Hype Crap and learn to wait a day or 2 for solid reviews

                • This is why I never bought the season pass, forsaken was a good step in the right direction but it still need constant care cause for the few things they got right in that dlc they -blam!-ed everything else up an considering forsaken is the biggest chunk of content we will get till D3 launch I knew it wouldn't be worth the money, time gating content literally showcase how little there is to do that's it's needed to be stretched across 2-3 months. It's a shame to see what this game is but it's a hard pass from me from now on, they seriously don't know what they are doing at bungie that they are so out of touch with what this game needs to actually be fun again.

                • I agree 100%, I started the expansion and was a little excited once I saw the first cut scene. not soon after I wandered around the black armory and said to myself "This is it?" this hyped up area is just a small room with weapons in bags. "alright" I thought to myself, when the next thing hit me, there is no milestone update other than complete the machine gun schematic. once again, I though "alright, might not be that bad" then shortly after that though I hovered over the image in my menu, and what do you know [KILL HIGH VALUE TARGETS WITH HEAVY]. why? why does killing powerful enemies help craft a weapon? why cant I go to some area of the map, find the pieces and make the gun like how you actually would. soon after this I looked online and found that nothing is accessible until later, and once again Bungie, the geniuses that they are time gated -blam!-ing everything. I want the last word, guess what -blam!-o, you gotta wait until the end of the month for some -blam!-ing reason, like WHY, why do I have to wait for shit I paid for? why can't everything be accessible straight out the gate, why do I have to -blam!-ing wait every god damn time something comes out, and on top of that they added more -blam!-ing weapons to the god awful RNG lootpool, MAKE THEM QUEST EXOTIC, I DON'T WANT TO PLAY 40 MORE HOURS OF YOUR SHITTY GAME FOR THE CHANGE OF GETTING SOMETHING NEW. After following this game for years, i'm finally done, and I wont be returning back to this game. Time and time again they repeat the same mistakes and never fix anything, and when they do occasionally fix something, there is another shitty system in place, or bug that they then need to fix 6 months later. We complain that exotics are too easy, they decrease the drop rate to maybe 1 every 30-40 hours of game play, but don't add a knockout system, so after getting a golden boi drop you're always like I really -blam!-ing hope that that's not another exotic edge transit. Concluding, -blam!- this game. they know what their doing, and they'll continue to do it until the DLCs life cycle ends, and it starts a new.
