I still love you guys and gals over at Bungie, and always will, the studio will ALWAYS have a special place reserved in my heart because of Marathon and Halo, but all of this Eververse stuff is SERIOUSLY putting a sour taste in my mouth. I'm sick of arbitrary seasonal time limits and paywalling. I'm sick of your insistence on putting so much time and effort into expanding Eververse stock. I'm ESPECIALLY sick of how it keeps getting more and more difficult to just EARN the Eververse items through dedicated playing. To be brutally honest with you, at this point, the main reason I continue to log in and play the game after I've already completed everything I wanted to complete in a given season, is to continue to earn Eververse items. This season's Eververse sucked ass, and I still don't have the complete Intrepid set for any of my characters. Not even one. I'm also missing a ton of other things from this season (Ships, Sparrows, Ghost Shells, Ornaments, Transmat Effects, and more). Compare that to every previous season I played, where I earned everything for each character I played. I wouldn't even be playing at this point if it wasn't for the fact that I want to earn as much Bright Dust as possible before it becomes even harder to attain. It just feels like a cheap and lazy cash grab. Something that belongs in a free-to-play or mobile game, not a premium priced product. If the next season is worse than this season, which I suspect it will be, then I will be taking my money elsewhere. I will no longer financially support the franchise. Consider this a fair warning. You won't see even a single penny from me until you remake the Marathon Trilogy or something.
Soooo you’re saying you only play the game at this point for aesthetics, and you hate having to pay for aesthetics?
You've conveniently missed the entire point of what I said in order to create and attack a shitty strawman. Congrats, I bet your mom is proud of you. The entire point of the post is that an aspect of the game is getting objectively shittier because of greed. You can go ahead and defend Bungie's greed until the cows come home. That won't make me any more likely to continue to spend my money here. In fact, it'll make me even less likely. Borderlands 3 is right around the corner, and as much as I think Randy is a -blam!-ing douche, I think Borderlands 3 will probably be more fun than grinding for Armor 2.0 versions of the same gear I already have and missing out on things I previously would never have missed out on. If that's all I have to look forward to next season, then -blam!- it, count me out.
Oh okay, well see you later then!
