Vidoc proves this game is for streamers, not us

I watched the vidoc and read some of the feedback about it. I have come to the conclusion that Destiny 2 is a game for streamers, not for us regular players. For clarification, regular players don't get paid money to play video games. Anyway. This all stinks of streamer friendly content. Each season starts with some big thing. Bungie is forcing the FOMO for better or for worse. At the end of the season, if you weren't there, you'll never get to be there. That approach had pros and cons, but mostly cons. For starters, regular players who don't get in on ground zero miss actual storyline content and can never get it back. That's an insane amount of pressure for a video game, especially one where the meta is so meticulously crafted for the top 1% (don't say it's not. No average player is getting any of the PvP pinnacle weapons). Here's the thing, though. If you, say, leave destiny 2 for 6 months and need to get caught back up on what happened, who do you HAVE to turn to? The streamers. They get fresh content every 3 months to keep up the numbers. Then they get archived content on YT for people who need to see what happened in the previous season for the next season to make sense. I know streamer hate is a real tinfoil hat in this community, but to me, this vidoc, Shadowkeep, and Y3 seasonal content kind of prove the conspiracy theorists right. Bungie invites these people to summits to discuss the game, a ton of their ideas get molded into the game (while virtually none of ours are), Datto whines about Well and now it's gone, and now year 3 will have disappearing content you can only revisit through streamer content. I canceled my Shadowkeep pre-order months ago, not that anybody cares, but every new thing I learn makes me happy I did. I don't know when Bungie decided that the livelihood of a dozen or so streamers meant more to it than its own community, but wow it's so pathetic to see people who work for this company day things like "we're all journeying together" when Bungie and streamers do their own thing and don't care about anybody else. No real point to this other than the feedback that I think this crap sucks. Nothing you do will make me want to watch Datto, Bungie. Stop trying.

  • Dattokeep is for people that don't mind wasting their time and money when it first releases and when the battle passes come that will be more wasted time and money because of the people that will buy because of FOMO. Not because of (quality content. )The funny thing is, they are going to be WTH did I pre-order this 😄 It's fine that some will buy Dattokeep because they like the game, but Dattokkeep is going to lose a lot of sailes and that alone says enough for me when it comes to Bungie creating content, all hype, no action...
