Sunsetting should end destinys popularity

Bungie told us they would respect the time and effort we put into this game only to completely go back on their own words with this new sunsetting announcement. They want us to literally grind for the exact same weapons we already spent alot of time grinding for our favorite rolls on. To make matters even more insulting they announce they are literally removing half the content in the game that we already purchased in order to force us to buy the so called new expansion pack which seems to be a reboot of destiny 1 content. So now i get this feeling that they are just basically reselling us content we already played in order to grind for weapons and armor we already own. Now add this nonsense to the already monotonous power leveling every season and you have created the perfect time to move on to some other game. Its sad because i really enjoyed this game but i will not continue to give bungie money for things i already supposedly own. (Or used to own)

    Sunsetting wouldn't be such a bad idea if 1) Bungie didn't make it so [i]blatantly[/i] obvious that we wasted our time grinding these weapons by making us grind the EXACT SAME weapons, and 2) we could trust Bungie to add enough new weapons and armor to fill the void left by the gear being level-capped. They could have done this differently. They could have made this an easier pill to swallow by introducing the mechanic in a way that doesn't insult player's time spent and explaining how they are going to be increasing production of new content to fill the gaps. But this is Bungie. They care more about shoehorning their half-baked ideas into the game more than they're concerned with player experience.

      • Well it's simple fella . Don't buy anything else unless they change. Don't buy the new dlc. Start looking for another game to invest time in. 👍

        Destiny is not popular anymore, they took care of that with the start of D2, which sucked more than anything could suck. Ever since, it sucks, with the exception of Forsaken, which is the work of another company, not Bungie. Now, their tactic is equal to throwing a handful of sh-it in the air and telling us it’s sunshine (aka Sunsetting) The game is in fact dead. There is no new real content, re-skins, an unintelligible power system, and lies. Yes, I keep playing, like so many others because when there’s nothing else to do, like taking a Harry or eating, maybe picking the kids up... This game can still entertain for about fifteen minutes. Bungie has morphed into a yard sale of a company, they have no clue where they’re headed or what they stand for. Also, Bungie, please stop with the political BS, it’s unbecoming, especially when you do not educate yourselves on the issue.

        • Nah it'll be fine. You all will buy the September dlc in secret and for some odd reason the population will go waay up in d2.

        • Destiny hasn’t been popular for a long time. No ones talking about destiny anymore. Allot of big games on there way though, loads of great games to look forward to.

          • It won't! Do you wanna know why? Because other games suck more and offer less content then destiny does. It's why we are all here. Look, I play other games lots of them. I like getting bored so I can play other games, it's healthy. I hate the season model it makes me feel like I have to stick around or I'll be behind when the next yearly dlc comes out. I miss playing for 3 months getting max level and leaving for 9 months to play other games but no! if I do that now, I have to grind 120 light levels plus the new dlc. B.S.

            • I bounce between Destiny2 and The Division2... Both of these games have serious issues . Either not listening to the fanbase or perhaps catering too much the fanbase. Something Strong comes out, people cry NERF. Fans cry we need more content, they then throw seasonal Drip-fed content and its too much for the same fanbase that cried about content. Nobody can win. Me personally was cool with the Long content droughts with things in between

              • So the community asked for a reason to grind new kit and not keep on using old stuff season after season. Bungie created a reason... yet the community is not happy that they are not able to power up items that are OVER A YEAR old. End result... the community asks for everything and when Bungie does something they want they want they complain about it.

                          It won't, though. You're screaming into a void for no reason. Bungie will do what they do, which is make THEIR game THEIR way. If you haven't figured that out by now, you haven't been here very long

                            • If you’ve been playing since d1, your stuff has been sunset like 4-6 times by now.

                                Why? I mean... every time a new season comes along, there are new weapons and armor at a higher level. Apart from the exotics, I don't usually spend a ton of time levelling the old ones up. I find that the new ones do about the same job in about the same way. Matter of fact, I just cleaned out my vault because it was finally full. There's no reason to have 500 old items of 750 or 900 power sitting around. My stuff pretty much sunsets itself.

                              • We've had several sun set periods in d1 but it worked back then and the way it was done was better and more natural with an almost yearly sunset with each new expansion. With d2 we've gone this whole time without a single sunset till now making the sudden introduction of a sunset forced. Like I said we had sunsets in d1 but with each sunset period we got equal amounts of stuff to chase like when vault stuff capped out we got all that stuff replaced by the dark below stuff and so on. With this sunsetting period coming in d2 we are losing alot of loot with little to replace it. I've been through the sunsetting in d1 and pretty much see it as both a good and bad thing, good because we can see new things added to the game finally and bad being that we aren't gonna get worth while stuff to replace the stuff lost. Bungie talks about power creep and how we need more powerful stuff but that's not the case we don't need more powerful stuff just equally as powerful stuff.

                              • it probably won't but it might see a slight dip in player base but only slightly, the amount of pre order i see is insanely high so i highly doubt it will huge drop

                                • Or we could just go back to sbmm. The sweatiness is killing me. Every game is push push push...rush rush rush..win lose doesnt matter. And the meta isnt helping either. Oh well whatever. At least the IB quest is a breeze. Which is nice. So.guardiand just run and dont worry about it. The guns are kinda fun.
