Watching PAX stream Luke said the AR [quote]"won't be the god killing machine it was"[/quote].
People crying about the nerf of the ARs are just mad because deep down they know it was easy mode. This type of game NEEDS diversity in weapon types and that was simply impossible with the ARs in their alpha and beta state. How anyone thinks they had "skillz" using a fully auto weapon with 44 bullets, laser like accuracy, and incredible range well outside what it was intended for is beyond me. You AR sympathizers are truly pathetic. Thank you Bungie for analyzing your data and trying to make your game the best it can be. Can't wait for 9/9!
