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.

    • By comparison, Warframe makes things you could pay for available by doing quests, relic farming, or wait for it... Trading items with other players.. It is sad that a game I liked and played as much as destiny turned into a d2 which has sworn me off frome EVER pre ordering bungLe products. Just checking in after updates to see if d2 is worth playing again... Apparently not

        Never give a baby a sword - old

        Anti-Fan Boy defenses. ^^^ Nuff said. It's not a DLC. It's dlc. (That was a joke) You don't eat a piece of seasame seed off of a burger and say that it is the main meat of the sandwich. 2: Separately 3: WRONG! I paid 110-120 dollars for "[i]D1: the casualness returned[/i]" 4: I don't understand where the 30 dollars came from. I thought it was 40? Nevermind. 5: I see where you get 30 for black armory, but in that case, I'd either have paid nothing for the next two pieces. Or black armory includes the next coming pieces. 6: Does this thing make my butt look big? 7: Why is graviton lance still part of the meta? 8: Why do people still rant like this on open forums? 9: It's a cool number. 10: Just because I wanted more money. 11: Communities can become factories for disease. 12: Warlock masterrace. 13: CAPS CAN BE MISREAD AS EXTREMELY HATEFUL, YELLING, OR POSSIBLY ASSUME THAT THE READERS ARE DEAF AND/OR CANNOT READ SMALL WORDS WELL! 14: Reasons why emotions lead to toxicity. 15: Dragging out stuff is fun. 16: By now you would have realized that I am up to something. 17: Why are you still reading this. 18: I'm an adult now. 20: Do you know the muffin man? 21: a multiple of three. You definitely should know where this is going... [spoiler]But I guess you are smart enough to figure it out.[/spoiler]

      • I like it the expansion, and don't use any of those "defenses" that you mention to justify my liking of it. Your arguments are classic straw men.

        • My main issue is the power level grind. I like grinding for guns, I could give a crap about some number on my emblem. I wouldn't mind if the power level grind was not as long, but it is too much as it stands. In D1 I did all the raids, now I have yet to do the raid. Mostly because after the month long grind to get high enough to do it, I lost all motivation to get a group together.

        • Drop the Fanboy bullshit. If you're not a fan of the game, why are you here? Anyone who liked anything about the casual game that was year one was dismissed as "fanboys". Now that everything's too grind focused, it's "fanboys". Maybe it's that no one can give any real feedback about what actually [i][b]is fun and works[/b][/i] without people like you going ad hominem. Just a thought.

          • I get where y'all are coming from now. You were expecting the able to play that egc day one of the dlc considering you are at or close to Max light. And I fully understand if that is what you are looking for. But if you were expecting mission, and a full story? You tricked yourself and have no reason to be mad. Especially if you paid $10 for either the emotes or ornaments....this is a $10...🤔 Can't call it a dlc. Whatever, in this content (when you are able to access it) you are kinda getting more that a freaking emote or ornament...but you shouldn't have bought it. Its about value.

          • Wow, I've not really bothered doing the forge thing yet (I mean I have got to the part of killing 25 powerful enemies, but nothing further) and from the mood of the internet this is a common feeling. It seems Bungie gathering all the streamers to their shows hasn't quite gone the way they thought. Escalation protocol - catered to the elite on release. Lunas Howl/Redrix Claymore - catered to the elite. Black Armoury - catered to the elite on release. Make a game for the few, lose the crowd. Well done guys.

            • I would rather pay for dark below than this convoluted POS. Can't quite recall what was going through my brain when I bought the season pass to a game I barely play and don't really enjoy when I do. Desperately hoping it would be more like d1 given time...... It's not.

              • The horde mode can be completed if everyone is At least 606 preferably 608. It was already done with 2 608’s and a 601. Get your thunderlord for red bars, just to clear the space around the yellow, shotgun for yellow bar scions. Shotgun the machete yellow bar together. When the yellow bar legionaries come out, usually in groups of two, nuke them with a high damage super. Blade barrage, chaos reach etc. cycle orbs. Most importantly stay mobile. Staying in one spot will generally get you killed. If you’re going to camp when the boss spawns you should atleast have one well of radiance.

              • You forgot the other defence. They explained there would be new gear to chase, check, a focus on endgame, check, a clear rollout of the content, check. Shockingly you seemed to have got what you paid for. I hope you weren’t one of the people I told to stop preordering? One of the many people who told me not to tell them how to spend their money.

                • New content! That you have to farm the same boring shit to access. If this is the future of all content updates then this sucks ass. At least I’ve got PvP.....oh wait.

                • I didn’t even finish the first stage of the Forge, yet I had a blast with my clanmates laughing our butts off horsing around as usual. In one day only doing half the milestones I hit 604. We’ll smack the Forge by the end of the week and keep it moving. We would have a riot playing Farming Simulator. All these games are going to be what you make it. I get it; it’s not for everyone. But try not to take it so serious man.

                  • You have one character at 610, you can do the forge right now. Players at 606 already done it 'til the end.

                        To be honest I can't play the game for more than a couple months before every activity and play space feels like a prison yard chore. The game is just generally outdated, beautiful environments to be sure but ultimately they'll always feel like movie sets as opposed to living breathing worlds. The original vision of destiny was just a vision but it is what had me so interested and hooked into this franchise up until recently when I logged in and just stared blankly at the start screen and thought what is the point? Sure looking cool in front of other players and raiding can be incredible but ultimately that's about all it'll ever amount to in appeal for me personally. It'll never really be what had my imagination running wild over 4 years ago about what this game could be. There's many factors for this, Activision being probably the biggest as they want a sequel set up model. You can bet they'll be a Destiny 3, and the cycle will repeat. Untapped potential, as fun as this game can be it really is only scratching the surface. This Dlc is just kind of another example of that, it sounds great having a continuous stream of stuff to apparently do but this simply isn't engaging enough on the first day to warrant applause. Edit: my phone sucks, ignore shitty paragraph spacing.

                        • The best way to buy Destiny still remains when you can get he entire collection on sale for $20. Otherwise you’re just buying a 2-3 year beta.
