5 years of loving, hating and wanting to love this game. I was invited along to the Alpha, over 5 years ago. I was in awe, what an amazing game this will be. The Destiny franchise was amazing and I was so happy to be part of it, the game grew and became incredible. Then Destiny 2 was released, seemingly by an entirely different studio. We lost our vaults and our powers due to lack of ideas for new content. "Let's take everything away and trickle feed it back". Then slowly we start to get our power back.. little by little. All of a sudden some ridiculous decisions are made and we are stripped of that power again instead of using creativity to combat our power. There is so much wrong with the game after this long and it's very clear that every decision made is a financial one. PvP will get worse, we see today the fine Bungie team were matched against an account recov. There are still too many ways to cheat within PvP without conviction. The entire system still runs on P2P networking(~1997 tech) There are many reasons for this decision. All of which come from stupid decisions made with this game. Bungie started dying when it was bought out by Microsoft almost 20 years ago and the final nail in the coffin was removing a largely influential figure from a lead role prior to the release of Destiny 5 years ago. I won't name drop as undoubtedly the forum ninjas won't want this person mentioned. It should have been clear back then when what was projected to be a huge release, was cut up into tiny DLC's to be sold over time for extra profit. RIP Bungie. P.S. Had to make a new titan so i could delete all 3 characters and uninstall the game. Thanks for the memories.
I loaded up D1 tonight after 2 years just for nostalgia. I gotta say I fully recommend anyone to do it,so much fun. Played about 3 hours of crucible using all 3 characters and had a blast. The game feels so much quicker from the characters movement to the loading screens. Grenades and melees feel so good and you can kill people in supers. So much fun,will be doing it way more often 👍.
