The vault and inventory being always full impairs playing ability. Why play when you have to constantly delete what you earn, even if you just keep 1 version of randomly-rolled legendary/exotic gear? This is bad for the inventory but it is terrible for the vault. The collection is not a solution for randomly-rolled gear or masterworked (you’d lose most of your cores, kill count, & the masterwork perk) items. The vault is in urgent need of being expanded. It has UI issues but the current size is enough to stop me from playing. I am sure there are others, especially those who play 3 characters, that are on the same boat. Some of us don’t like the vicious cycle of constantly deleting our hard-earned gear and doing inventory management, as it gives a feeling of meaninglessness to the whole process (I.e. whatever you are working on, there’s a good chance you will have to delete it in the future). I believe that to be one of the main reasons many dropped the game, including me, and the player numbers prove the game is in dire need of fixes, and this is a rather simple and straightforward one, with little play-testing needed. I believe the vault should accommodate 1 version of at least every legendary and exotic item, including cosmetics (or have a separate tab/system for them), so a seasonal increase to the vault size (as eververse is refreshed) is ideal, but really, any increase to the vault size would greatly help, since it has been ignored for over a year now. There is no sense in adding weapons, armour, ghosts, ships, sparrows, currencies, etc. if there is nowhere to store them. I believe Bungie is neglecting the basics here, and that has dire consequences.
You don't use all of the stuff you keep, right? I mean most of the armor i have in there are Eververse and event armors because you can't get them anymore. And the weapons are ones I like using or have decent rolls on them for stuff I [i]might[/i] use. I'm at like 250 and i even have a bunch of legendary transmat effects, almost all of Cayde's chest oddities, and a few planet tokens (just cuz). Just delete stuff, I mean there aren't even that many weapons with random rolls so having maybe 2-3 of some of the better ones won't take up that much space. My friend was a big collector in this game and actually started collecting one of every single legendary item he could from the start then collections came around and helped ease his vault space. Then he started collecting one of all the new stuff and his vault started filling up again. Like once a week he'd go in there and start paring everything down to one or two of each item with good rolls and infuse them up, dismantling the extras.
