I haven't played D2 since Iron Banner ended and have no desire to log on and play right now
I'm really disappointed at the stance Bungie has taken on accessability in this game and the effect it's had on the experience of the entire community at the behest of the vocal minority.
The latest response we've gotten that there are currently no plans to adjust the infusion system makes no sense. There's no benefit to the system and removing it wouldn't negatively affect anyone's experience. If players like holding onto gear and using whatever drops, they still would have that option.
I currently have everything I want/need on my Hunter and I have no desire to log in and play anything. That never happened year one because I never got burned out on having to do things over and over and over again.
I haven't played my Titan or Warlock since Forsaken dropped. I have no desire to play either of them because of the ridiculous infusion system and the fact that again, I'm so burned out on having to play things I don't like to get powerful drops vs just playing things I like and progressing.
And honestly, PvP is basically dead to me outside of Iron Banner. I despise QuickPlay and what it's become, [url=https://twitter.com/TheTrueVanguard/status/1077978948204744705?s=19]but[/url] [url=https://twitter.com/TheTrueVanguard/status/1084449527271178242?s=19]it's[/url] [url=https://twitter.com/TheTrueVanguard/status/1088554185132572673?s=19]popular[/url] with big name influencers so...
Of course it's down to 617k players and if Anthem takes even a portion of the casual PvP players away, it's probably going to hit year one levels of grim, but don't worry, the big time PvP players have a new idea to make Crucible even better, make [url=https://twitter.com/TheTrueVanguard/status/1088221041825058816?s=19]sniping[/url] [url=https://twitter.com/T1gigz/status/1086889982692749312?s=19]easier[/url]!

I'm sure that will save the Crucible.
I want to enjoy playing Destiny again and with all that was wrong with year one, I never felt this way about the game. I have a VIP access code for the Anthem demo tomorrow. 3 months ago I had no interest in the game. Now? Different story.
I still want Destiny to be great and I want it to succeed, but I just don't know what this game is right now and I know it's not being made for a player like me.
I have no proof of this, but I suspect D2 is pretty much on autopilot at this point. Maybe a few hot fixes after each of the remaining DLCs to fix critical issues, but other than that, D2’s final state has pretty much been scripted straight through the end of its life.
The only other thing we can expect are the predetermined/seasonal meta shifts that are supposed to “keeping the game fresh” but generally just piss everyone off.
