Guys let's be honest, the rest of d2 will be bungie milking us dry.

Bungie is going to keep destiny 2 on life support for as long as they can after shadowkeep. With the new battle pass format and seasonal DLC's, bungie will drip feed content and milk us as long as they can without really adding much or evolving the game in any meaningful way. Yes we are getting armor 2.0 and finishers, but outside of that and the upcoming sandbox changes, is destiny really evolving? I feel bad for d2 players on the forums that come up with really great ideas that would expand the game world, or create balancing ideas to make the classes feel more distinct from each other. New exotic weapon ideas or pve game modes. Branching storylines, new and interesting locations, skill tree ideas that pertain to your race. I feel like destiny has always been this way where the community has amazing ideas to create this bright and vibrant game world with interesting stories, gameplay content, features, and bungie settles for mediocrity but slowly trickes in slightly better features and we the community treate it as if its groundbreaking or revolutionary. Forsaken was a much better expansion than osiris and warmind, but when you look at it in comparison to other video game expansions and video game standards as a whole, it was mediocre at best. What I'm saying is that bungie starts out their games by setting the bar soo low, that when they make even the slightest progress we treat them as if they are making grand accomplishments. I wanted this game to be great, I really did, but be honest with yourself what else does destiny 2 have to offer before d3? Shadowkeep, a bunch of seasonal mini dlcs and then maybe one more large expansion? How much resources do you think bungie is going to invest into actually innovating or advancing their game over the last few years of d2? They are going to invest all their manpower to the new battle pass and seasonal dlcs in order to keep us on the monetization hamster wheel. They are going to drip feed this game and keep the destiny community on life support until d3 and the cycle continues again. This all happened with d1 and given bungie's track record the same thing will happen with d3. I'm making this post because I get depressed whenever I look at the forums and the community comes up with genuinely great ideas, but I know in my heart that bungie will choose the path of least resistance and make tiny minute innovations to their game and pretend they just invented the wheel.

    • Actually, no. What bungies asking for is very reasonable. For a full year of content support, which is a LOT of content, 60 bucks is nothing much to spare.

          • Destiny is a great experience, not just a game. It has and had the ups down. When everyone complained about Curse of Osiris, I actually liked it, and to the day every one uses the colony, the prometheus lens nad my favorite hand cannon is west of sunfall. The Dlc is cheap for the hours you will be playing. Fast food costs more for two. My concern is that I want Destiny to be dark and follow the lore, not a fornite childish toy. I want more weapon ornament, more exotic armor ornaments and more loot to use, even from evervese. I had enough with the useless ships, sparrows and ghosts! Bungie makes great games, I have played both Halo Evolved and Oni and Oni is by far my best action game alongside with Nija Gaiden in Xbox. If you want content and service you must pay, dont be cheap.

          • If i bring lunch to work 1 day that covers the 10 bucks for the battle pass that i would have spent eating out. 60 bucks for a years worth of content or 16 cents a day. Im in.

[/quote] It’s depressing how accurate this statement is. Maybe they don’t do this intentionally but it sure seems like their strategy. Everyone praised Forsaken for being an amazing expansion but have you played it lately? The story is trite nonsense, Cayde’s death has no lasting repercussion or emotional weight (as usual), the missions are typical arena fights with the odd different mechanic thrown in and the “endgame” in the Dreaming City is [i]stupidly[/i] repetitive. Forsaken just seemed “amazing” because the art was excellent and Osiris and Warmind weren’t that great, but that’s no reason to give Bungie a pass and hold them to some pretty low standards.

                    • Sounds like the ramblings of someone who will benefit from playing the free content. I suggest you do not pay anything else for any DLC or Season. Be the person in the room that wants to complain about where Bungie has been (with Activision) using that to crutch those ideas of fruition that have not come to bare. Taking no account the variables no longer in the equation and the ones now present creates a solid result of nonsense. As someone suggested, a conversation would have been better than a declaration of what little you cannot afford. If I may, this may not be the game for you. I would recommend a more controlled environment with an activity you can rely on to never change or evolve. Perhaps, a Mario Bros game. Would you like that? The points you attempted to make were mostly nonsense as that of a seer looking back in order to look in front of you. Without references of material for comparisons to that of “We should just trust you on your opinions of subjective matter over anyone else’s” mentality. If looking behind you makes you that dismal and low on funds for the future then just don’t buy anything and sit back, relax, and enjoy the free updates & events.

                      I think Forsaken was a top tier expansion compared to anything Ive seen in any game and set the bar. Youre not giving it credit whatsoever- the dungeon, raid, 3 week cycle of the dreaming city, blind well, Mara Sov offerings, patrol beacons replaced by guards, the amazing world they built, ascendant realms, the cats, ascendant hidden chests, eggs, lore, exotic quests/ sparrow, even the lost sectors, seeds of light/ new supers. They knocked it out of the park. I cant believe you were not really impressed by that.

                      • I hate when [BUNGIE] kicks down my door and holds a missile launcher to my face, demanding my money. I just hate it. If only they’d just leave me alone to play my Destiny-Killer-Game #5, then they’d never get my money! [spoiler]Guys come on, a little self control goes a long way[/spoiler]

                          Unless Bungie is at your house robbing you, or picking your pocket, you control what money you spend, and where. If you buy something and like it, i would think buying more of it will likely be a good thing for you. If you buy something, and not like it. Buying more is a likely going to not make you happy. If you keep buying it after you are unhappy with it, IE milking you. Then you shouldn't be allowed to spend your own money.

                          • That’s why I’m [i]waiting [/i]for Shadowkeep reviews before I buy. Seriously if everyone did this instead of pre-order the game makers would be forced to make good stuff.

                              This is all I can say about this post: … Bungie, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you'll never ever leave from beside me 'Cause I want ya, and I need ya And I'm down for you always Destiny, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you'll never ever leave from beside me 'Cause I want ya, and I need ya And I'm down for you always ... Shadowkeep-Crota, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you'll never ever leave from beside me 'Cause I want ya, and I need ya And I'm down for you always Devs, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you'll never ever leave from beside me 'Cause I want ya, and I need ya And I'm down for you always ... I need my Warlock Astrocyte Verse to drop And I'm down for you always 😀

                            • So for the price of one game, you get a years worth of content at the price of a large mocha, per month? Yeah, milking, so dry. It's almost like Bungie is a company who has to make money..... How can that be? Everything should be free.

                                the more players leave , the more you remaining players get milked , not just for money but also for your time the sooner you leave , the less time you waste in the long run on a sinking ship
