Constructive criticism of eververse and how i think it could be changed
I know the best solution is to put everything in the game for free and have 0 microtransactions, but we all know that is never going to happen in Destiny 2 - so here is my pitch for how to fix the microtransaction model.
Remove all current eververse items and add them as rewards to the game.
Turn Tess in to a vault space vendor that you can buy vault space for real money.
Huh? Vault space for real money?! What am I thinking?!
I think this could benefit the Destiny community more than you think at first.
Benefits for Bungie:
This allows Bungie to keep a micro transaction model in the game while addressing the vault space issue.
For the players:
By making the vault space the main source of micro transactions for Bungie, this incentivizes Bungie to continue to add earnable content to the game.
Why? Because by having more content in the game, increases our need for vault space.
So the collector types can buy more vault space with money, because they are PLAYING the game and earning more loot than they can manage.
And those that don't collect, can keep the current vault space and still have stuff to earn, but may eventually still hit the vault space cap due to having way more content in the base game.
So what about bright engrams?!
I think Bright engrams can still have a place, this is with making them SHADERS ONLY.
I think what is missing from the shader system is adding in exotic shaders that give unique effects, such as adding a taken effect to your armor pieces with an exotic shader. Keeping stuff like this in Bright Engrams still makes them rewarding, but allows regular shaders for normal in game customization but adds an extra incentive to grind Bright Engrams to make yourself look like the cream of the crop of guardians.
I understand this maybe divisive in the community as vault space is a hot topic, but I think this may actually be the best way to go to get content in the game and increase vault space whilst benefiting both parties.
i don't think a vault space vendor is the way to go. enough vault space should be a core feature of a looter shooter. also, what would tess do when everybody bought their vault space? or would it be vault space for rent?
they could keep all their stuff as is if they put a fair price tag on each item in the eververse store. you earn a bright engram and it gives you a shopping boon for a set amount of items and/or bright dust. eververse problem salved. they still make enough money from the silver they sell and micros are still in the game so they uphold their contract crap with activision. after that they have the time to fix the other problems...
