Worst PvP Season Ever

Bungie has made several claims over the years that they are listening to player feedback, they examine the sandbox closely for changes, and that they want to make PvP a better experience. This season has single handedly proved that none of that is true, Bungie is not listening to player feedback, and is in fact doing the exact opposite of what players want from a sandbox update. My list of grievances for this season include - Removing several playlists like Rumble (a mode which many consider a core experience in the PvP realm) and placing them into the rotator playlist - Unable to play Quickplay whilst Iron Banner is out - DMT meta literally no one asked for, and that was completely unwarranted given the data that Bungie claims they use to base their sandbox changes on - SBMM in Quickplay despite Iron Banner, Trials, and Competitive playlists all existing, and providing better rewards (Players do not want to try their hearts out for a mediocre weapon that changes with the season) - Introducing one new map, and that map being arguably the worst designed PvP map to have ever blessed the destiny franchise - 0 communication or acknowledgement of player frustration with the current state of PvP - Unable to quickly launch another activity after match completion (Unable to open map/directory whilst loading in or shortly after activity completion) There are plenty of other issues and I emplore the community to list out their grievances in this post in hopes that these complaints are addressed. Whilst Destiny 2 at it's core is a PvE game with an evolving story, the PvP modes are the main driving force for replayability and large portions of the community are hanging up their hats after seasons worth of neglect and abuse from the sandbox team and overall lack of effort being put into the mode. When all the PvE quests and stories have dried out for a season, and the player count drops to record lows, just like last season, the only ones left are players who weren't actually playing the new content when it was coming out, new players, and players in the crucible (yes, other minority player groups exist, but these I feel are the main groups for this discussion). Of these groups, the crucible (I would be willing to be) is the largest, and also the most vocal, and yet this group is getting none of the dedication, passion, or attention that is needed to maintain a healthy relationship with not only the mode, but the game as a whole entity. I feel Destiny 2 needs a season dedicated to nothing but the health and structure of the PvP in this game, and whilst this would most likely not happen, without it I feel that PvP is going nowhere but into the dirt. Sincerely, One of the crucible players
