There is so much to do and none of it matters~Datto

This seems to hit the nail on the head for me. In the current state of the game, there just isn’t anything exciting anymore. There are a lot of things that I have not done in D2. I did everything there was to do in D1 and enjoyed it thoroughly. In D2 it just doesn’t seem to be worth the time. I play solo almost exclusively and that make raids and high level PvE almost impossible. To try and find a group that would be cool with running me through a raid is difficult, if not impossible. Even if I could find this group, what would be worth chasing? The weapons and armor from the raids pale in comparison to what we received in D1. But hey, what do I know? Edit: 800 responses and not a word from Bungie. Who would have guessed?

    • I cannot stand datto . I go out of my way to not watch his videos . Avoid him like the plague. Except this time. Someone referred me to his state of the game video. I watched this one and everything he’s said is right @ the state of the game. Tons to do and None of it matters. Nothing good to chase which makes it a no go on playing it dedicatedly . I love destiny , the world the characters the gunplay. I’m afraid d2 has run its course and that stale boredom is magnified by reskins , crappy bounties and lack of rewards that are worth a damn. I don’t think anyone can expect much more from d2 at this point . The game has run its course and I. Sure they have a small team doing these updates and seasons while the core of their team are working on new projects . Don’t expect much in d2 anymore . It doesn’t have much life left in it.

      • As a side note to all the people saying Datto should just play another game or move on need to stop. The man has tried that since D1, and every time is met with backlash saying "Where's Destiny Datto? Why aren't you playing Destiny?" I can guarantee some of the people saying this are even some of the people who gave negative feedback when he tried to play something else. Leave the man alone for what he does as a living and give it a rest with saying it's entirely his fault. If you want proof, go look at Datto's overview of his career throughout D1, he even said it himself.

      • I wonder what would have happened if you didn't put datto in the title. Then this would have 1k+ upvotes and everyone agreeing with you. But everyone here was a hive mind idea that they must hate datto no matter what happens. He can say eververse sucks and people will complain about him complaining.

          Datto is a jaded elitist, who clearly doesn't enjoy Destiny anymore....and who doesn't remotely speak for the community. While he is a talented theory-crafter and build analyst...he is the LAST person I'd turn to for game design advice. Literally....the last person...if I wanted to actually make MONEY with that game. 1. Datto comes from a back ground in World of Warcraft. In the early days of his YouTube Channel, he was pretty open and self-aware that his aspiration for this game was for it to become World-of-Warcraft-with-Guns. A brutally difficult, super-hardcore, mega-grindy RPG. (One of the nicknames for WoW is "The Addiction Simulator"....in reference to how much of your life it will consume trying to play it). 2. The Division 1 tried to be that game in its first year...and it was a DISASTER. The game lost 98%% of its player base by 6 months post launch...and the devs were openly at-war with the player base, lecturing them about their "design goals" despite feedback that was rattling the walls about how much the community hated the state the game was in, and how the game wasn't even remotely fun to play. At the last minute the devs-----Massive Entertainment----finally got their heads out of their asses. Retuned the game for a more average player base....and saved the franchise. 3. Datto is also an outlier in terms of skill level. One of the things he used to do with his channel was self-imposed raid challenges Where he'd try to---and usually succeed---clearing various Destiny raids with these really bizzare, off-meta, and dreadfully underpowered loadouts. 4. Datto used to care enough about the game that he'd keep his content preferences to himself. Realizing that if he got what he wanted....they'd wind up with a game that no one else would want to play. But something seems to have happened, and he just doesn't seem to care anymore. He's cynical to the point of near-toxicity....and derives very little pleasure from the game. TLDR: Datto sounds like he's got a horrible case of burnout, and needs to take a break. But probably isn't in a position to do so because this is how he earns his living. The last content creator that I saw get like this was BBK Dragoon (Destiny The Show podcast). By the end he was so toxic that I could barely stand to listen to him talk about the game. But he eventually realized that he needed to change....he quit covering (and playing) Destiny and moved on to other games. Although I don't watch his content much anymore, he seems happier....and the choking cloud of negativity that used to surround him and his work seems to be gone.

            • I do have to agree in some part on the Raids, early on in D1 I was not in a clan yet finding a group to do the last part of Crota or VoG was easy mainly in part that the raids were not overly complicated.... 10 - 15 minutes with a decent group and you got a finish. D2 no such luck, seems like Bungie doesn't like to make anything for those not in Clans..... everything now seems so clan devoted or fire team based.

                Again with these streamers. Why do some of you care what they say?? They don’t represent the majority of Destiny players. They make a living playing Destiny so they always whine when they feel there’s nothing to do. They constantly want more content so they can get more viewers and more subs and donations from these viewers. They don’t care about the game as much as they care about the money they make from sitting and playing Destiny for 20+ hours everyday and when they devour all the new content they go back to complaining again because they have run out of stuff to do. Go play other games! It’s annoying. Look at Gladd right now, he’s been streaming this new Osiris puzzle for more than 26 hours. I don’t get why some of you people bring up these streamers like they are some kind of proof. They don’t even represent 1% of Destiny’s playerbase.

                • Datto has every single seal in the game, so of course there’s nothing to do because he literally did it all already. It’s like a gambler complaining about spending all their money because they’re addicted- oh wait that just summed it up perfectly. Datto and many other gamers alike who have as much playtime and time devoted to Destiny are in themselves addicted to this game. It’s a lifestyle addiction. Despite all of these complaints people simply can’t help themselves to stop playing, or take a break. But if this game is earning you a living of course you won’t stop. The thing is though unlike Datto and other streamers the vast majority of destiny’s population don’t earn a penny while playing, and yet the amount of time dunked into this game for many have reached absurd levels throughout these last 5 years. Destiny 2 in itself can use a shit ton of improvements, but given the nature of the past of how D1 had a 3 year life cycle it’s likely D2 will suffer the same fate. It’s all a build up to D3. Otherwise what reason would we have to continue? The plan is to blue ball the everlasting shit out of the player base until Destiny 3 is concluded. That is the 10 year plan after all TLDR; Bungies plan is to keep us addicted to playing to this game. It’s working and it’s been working.

                  • I’ve watched this video and while he is correct about it meaning nothing, his video is basically him complaining that he has no reason to play and by extension make money from videos Because of this, it lessens the effect I’m guessing he wanted and just makes him look more pathetic than he already did

                      • Perfectly stated... there is a lot to do and none of it matters? Could not have said it better. Game has lost its soul and Bungie could care less. I and many others will remember how Bungie dropped the ball with D2 and it will impact whether or not I purchase any content or games from this subpar company.

                        • Datto is correct, but you have to understand that he is a hard core raider that will not be happy unless he is playing the most challenging content. His opinion does not represent the majority of Destiny players. At the end of Summer I noticed that weapon grinding was slowly coming to an end. Now in Season 9 acquiring new weapons does not really matter. Nevertheless, this will not prevent me from playing. I always find something to do every time I log on.

                          • Datto is one the few people responsible for giving Bungie bad input on where the game should go, he made his own situation. But the issue with of no pursuit existing I agree. However things like Gally, Fate bringer, whisper was they made the haves and hav-nots. In D1 it worse since people would get kicked for not having them.

                          • What is the point in doing x activity or x quest for the reward to be underwhelming or nerfed into oblivion. A weapon that has been obtained via hard objectives or long quest line should have something about it that stands it apart from a legendary open world drop. There is very little incentive to do end game activitys or really long quests with the current system in place.
