      If people were complaining about the amount of cores they get, I’d be happy. But people don’t care how many they get, they want them removed entirely from infusing. And from that standpoint bungie’s decision is a terrible one and they should really read these posts more thoroughly.

        • I clicked the last option because I really dont see an issue there. I mean scrapper bounties give you enhancement cores and spider sells them, and you can even pick up bounties from spider to have a piece of legendary gear and/or an enhancement core. So yeah

                  Changing the very common (free) source of cores into another sold bounty does not solve anything.

                • Cores do nothing to make an impactful choice; for me it means not masterworking my Armour, and holding onto gear I don’t want simply for its power level until I reach max power and can start infusing the gear I enjoy. Pretty sure sure that’s the opposite of what they want.

                • I hope Bungie reads this but imo the [b][i]Hawthorne change was the best and most underrated change towards the right direction.[/i][/b] I read about planning to add more bounties, more currencies, and more consumables. And although I think it's great that it's on their radar, I think it's not the best idea to start adding MORE of these things when the game is already almost full to the brim with it. That's why the Hawthorne change to a progression weekly quest was probably the best for me. In it's own way it: 1. It reduced inventory clutter 2. Reduced inflated playing time 3. Rewarded the player for his time on the game, playing the actual game. Imagine if instead of picking up 5 daily bounties, you picked 1 card for example. It has a progression bar that says "Play strikes, defeat enemies, and use your abilities. Class abilities, Shotguns, and power weapons count more towards progress" and it rewarded 30 Vanguard tokens and 3 enhancement cores. The game does not need anymore dead time, "Inventory" time, or "Tower" time. Imo, it's not a good idea to add more currencies (considering Synths has just been added and only stacked to 20) and bounties when managing the ones we have is already taking too much time. Destiny 2 at it's core is fun. Inventory Candy Crush, Baryon Bough scavenger hunts, and playing "Spider says" is not.

                • Coming from a hardcore player who plays the game every day, I am not. I am out of cores and I play the game constantly, I can’t imagine what it’s like for someone who has a limited time investment.

                • If the new bounties are more like go kill 100 enemies with arc damage or something similar that can be completed through playing how you want then this could work. However if they are like spider bounties where you have to go do random lost sectors or hang out somewhere in the edz waiting for a wanted enemy then this is just a waist of time and resources that could be used to address other issues. With that thought why not just update spider bounties to be achievable in any activity or just have cores drop from said activities. Or maybe just remove them from infusion?

                    I know I will get a lot of hate for this, but here goes nothing... First off, let me say that I am one lucky SOB as far as cores go. They seem to drop out of the air for me. In a few hours of play, its common for me to collect 20 or more each time I play. With that being said, I have to agree with Bungie that infusion and masterworking items should be something that takes some work. I agree that it would be meaningless if there were not some time needed to get your gear to the highest level. I also understand the problems that those that do not have the same luck with cores, are going through. The truth is though, that if done correctly, you can get your favorite items masterworked and infused to the highest levels, you will just have to put up with being mish mashed for a little while. Equip higher light items when you get them. Work your way to max light, THEN start infusing and masterworking. By the time you get to 700 light, you should be able to mass enough cores to easily infuse items to max light, as it makes no difference in core cost to infuse an item from 650 to 653, or 650 to 700. You just have to be able to put up with your character looking all mixed up for a little while. By the time you hit 700 light, you should have enough cores to masterwork many items as well. Trust me here, I feel the game has gone elite, and that it has become more of a job then a game, but infusion isn't really that bad, if you can just stand waiting a bit. Asking for cores to be removed from infusion completely, is not likely to happen, and I think its a bit much to want to be able to infuse several sets of armor to the highest level, without working for it in some way.

                  • I get to run milestones for 6 weeks to get 700 and get enough infusion fodder and cores to bring the gear I really want to use up to that LL. Just to turn around another 6-7 weeks after that and do it all over again. I'm just starting to feel like Sisyphus. Enhancement cores aren't the only problem, it's really that this game is so dry on loot that all there is to do is chase numbers.

                      Bungie needs to stop when it comes to making comments that are misleading to what this game has actually become. Trying to get most of the player base to believe that the cores are meant for gamers "to make meaningful choices" is not true at all. The way this game is designed it has far fewer options then it should have that leaves less interest in wanting to level up a lot of the gear in this game among weapons. Making meaningful choices should not lead to limited options that it is kind of forcing gamers to only use certain items, [b](there should always be a variety option's given to the gamer when it comes to progression)[/b] IMO Bungie seriously needs to look at D1 progression system and what it actually offered that kept many gamers interest in wanting to level up most of the gear in the game and weapons. Most of it was worth the times spent grinding in the game. When most don't like the grind in D2, it's common sense to say that, that is a big red flag that they need to change their ways on how they have been handling this game. [b](No people, this is not a "hardcore gamers game" nor is it a "casuals gamers game".)[/b] Those are just only labels some of you guys made up for yourself and nothing more as an excuse for some of you to either play the game or not to play the game. Think about this... [spoiler] If you are grinding for everything Bungie wants you to each and every week to level up or acquire certain items? You're not a casual gamer. Casual gamers don't play along with what they are told to do, yet the ones that say they're a casual gamer are doing exactly what Bungie wants them to do every single week. If you're grinding for everything in this game knowing there really isn't much to grind for at all other then material to level up? You are not a hardcore gamer, you are only grinding at the mercy of RNG that is far worse off then D1 ever was.[/spoiler] Putting as many limits as Bungie has in this game that was way overdone because of the lack of in-game content has hurt this game more than anything else. As I have been saying for a while, there are many small things Bungie can do right now that would actually improve this game. The problem is, they have refused to and since they have it is why so many gamers have been unhappy with the direction this company has taken with this game. Bungie literally needs to stop with this obsession on controlling how gamers play their game and give them more options that will allow them to play how they would like to play the game.
