It is somewhat ridiculous to only receive this warning once you fly into the tower to discover that you've been overflowing for God knows how long. Last night after running a couple nightmare hunts, a moon vex event and an altar of sorrows, I flew to the tower, was told my postmaster was full (way too late), and realized I had lost all the stuff sitting in there from before and numerous other items. I lost all the excess item stacks such as vex components, black armory items, and phantasmal fragments. For all I know I probably lost an exotic and maybe some high level pieces I needed or God roll weapons. The postmaster was filled with 3 fresh rows of blues and a few legendaries, and had pushed out everything else. This is crappy. Please give us a warning when we actually need it. Not when it's way too late. Edit: Also, blues should get pushed out first, then legendaries or consumables, then exotics. Or some sort of similar system. To lose your potentially good stuff just to get a bunch of blues is maddening. Tl;dr: "Postmaster is full" only gives you warning when you finally fly back to tower to check if it is full. It never warns you beforehand. It's currently more of a "hey btw, you got screwed the past couple hours, just to let you know." Tldr2: Perhaps have something pop up "postmaster is full" in the same manner in which "level up" pops up in game. Just less extravagant. Simple and effective. Obligatory edit to mention that the highly requested "auto dismantle blues" option would save a ton of postmaster space to begin with. Still, I'm having fun with Shadowkeep 😎 Final edit: I know how the apps work. This would just be a simple QoL fix. To be upset about this suggestion is a ridiculous waste of energy. I initially made a post just to vent but I'm glad it struck a chord with many other veterans of the game who agree with the post. Good day to all. Thanks to Bungie for replying.
I have brought this up to the team and will let them know this is still something the community would like to see changed. The reason we didn't want to show this while in activities is we thought it would get pretty annoying as you probably still want to finish what you are doing first. Let us know what you think about changing to show in activity or in orbit. Thanks!
