The new armor mod system does leave me skeptical due to how it is ultimately controlled by RNG in order to get the right setup for a player, but I’m honestly way more concerned at the moment with matchmaking and PvP going into the future. There’s a lot of problems that still need to be addressed and they are all unrelated to gear/weapons/abilities. Take for instance Comp. It in no way is stable due to the numerous amounts of issues like dcs/dropouts before the match starts, more and lesser known connection exploits and lack of proper design to match similar skilled teams only so players end up going against the same people they just fought a match with before. Because of all of those issues, there’s a rather diminished player pop there and it will only continue to shrink in the long run. Either changes need to be made to actually make Comp fit it’s namesake or it needs to just be removed outright as it really has no fit place in Destiny.
