Imagine a new player buys Destiny 1, which the collection is still a substantial price at most outlets They are getting an incomplete experience , you can't complete the record books, there are no trials or iron banner , so you can't get the shield of the city emblem or the other rewards , so those milestones need to be removed and book xp requirements lowered to make up for them if you haven't completed them . And Legacy raids need matchmaking, you will never find a complete raid team for D1 content on any LFG app, so you are reduced to begging people at the social spaces. Either offer it free, or fix it so new players can earn all the rewards
This is the problem with any game like destiny. If you come into the game late, you will have a hard time completing or getting the full experience because many people are not willing to help.. when destiny 2 released, I continue to log onto destiny 1 to help people. But finding enough people to raid was the hardest part. Some experienced players don’t want to carry someone who are not experienced. I once spend 2 days carrying 5 inexperience players through Crota. We raided for 7 hours on Saturday and I needed to take a break and met up again on Sunday and it took us another 5 hours to beat crota. I wouldn’t that again because it can be frustrating but I have to admit, the joy of hearing the player scream in excitement when crota goes down is something that you will always remember.
That’s another reason I don’t care for 6 man raids that have heavy mechanics like standing on plates while others have other jobs. When the player pool thins out it’s much easier to scrape by with finding three people todo it with. Crota raid was perfect before then changed the bridge because you could solo it . It was a fun challenge and you didn’t need to put together a lot of people. Design for three with the ability to solo like the dungeon would be perfect.
Mate it gets better than that. Some people are genuinely buying destiny the collection and finding out of date dlc codes inside. Which is getting a really incomplete game. Destiny always about being there for the experience, if you missed it, you missed it. I saw it all.
Lol that happened to me. Rip
