So, is anthem good yet?

Last I heard it was still booty for various reasons. But it's been a while. Any updates that turned the tide? I've pretty much detoxed myself of d2 fomo addiction the past few months so I have a slot in my playtime that I wouldn't mind filling with anthem for a while if it's worth the time and effort. Thoughts?

    Define "good". The game is in a better spot than Destiny 2 was in at this point last year. 1. It has very good core game play. 2. Its stability problems have largely been fixed. Had my first server disconnect in weeks this weekend. But like Y1 Destiny 2 the game suffers. 1. Minor game design problems. Freeplay (their version of Patrol)...just doesn't work. The game puts far too few people in too large of a space. So you wander around kind of aimlessly and hope to (randomly) bump into events. Problem is those events were designed for multiple players to play cooperatively....but most of the time you're fighting on your own, because no one else is nearby. The experience doesn't work, and its not fun. 2. Major loot problems. Like Destiny 2 in Year 1....the lootpool is shallow. Like Destiny 2...even to this moment----the devs feel that the key to keeping players playing is to be withholding. 3. A player base that wants to play as LITTLE of the game as possible to get its loot....while at the same time they complain that the game doesn't have enough to do. Verdict? Good time to START playing....because you won't hit most of the game's problems until your about 100 hours into the game. Not a good time to return to playing if you already have an end-game level player...and hit your head against the game's loot problems. The game right now is in the process of ramping up for the release of The Cataclysm. Which----by what I've heard----is supposed to be fun to play content that somewhere between Menagerie and Prison of Elders. New loot is being added to the game. New abilities and New weapons. I'll probalby come back and play some to experience it...and get some of the new gear. But the game is probably about another 5 or 6 months away from fixing all of its issues. They've laid a good foundation (now that the stability issues have been fixed)....but they've run into the end-game problems I feared that they would. The game's problems are just being blown out of proportion because of the game's rocky release.....the hate and hostility towards EA....and YouTube bottom feeders who never miss an opportunity to trade shitting on the game for clicks and views.
