Remember when they said they were going to fix the frustration of getting a pair of Peacekeepers or Tricksleeves with perks that don’t even fit the exotic? Well that still exists, because if you get a different affinity than is associated with those weapons you’re out of luck. This isn’t just a problem on exotics, but on all armor, there’s just too much RNG to get the thing you want, time spent grinding doesn’t matter, odds are you just won’t get it. Pulling these Destiny 2 Year 1 dumb decisions is already making the player base fall off pretty drastically, this game needs to start being for the players, or they’re not sticking around. EDIT: There are some great suggestions here, I really hope Bungie at least reads some of them: •At the very least remove the affinity from exotics, totally agree •Include the option to reroll the affinity with something like Glass Needles, and this wouldn’t be random, you’d choose the affinity you’re rerolling to •Or allow you to mix and match with mods work with which affinity, to create your own perfect mod setup for a build
Thanks for the post. We've been collecting feedback on affinities, how they currently work and what players would like to see. If you have any other thoughts, please post 'em!
