[Forbes] Yes, 'Destiny 2' Needs To Cater More To Casuals (To Some Extent)
I found this on my search because I felt slightly alienated in this community. I thought destiny was a game to escape with but it turns out since I have college, a farmers ins-investment firm, and music performances taking up a good chunk of my week.... I am too casual when I log on. In other words I am not welcome here, and neither are any other gamers unless you are willing to play the game 8-10 hours a day everyday of the week.
In terms of casuals yes, I completely understand they move to the next shiny thing and ask for dumb things that yes.. before it was actually done. (Like the nerf to shotguns, golden gun, shoulder charge, universal remote, and Hand Cannons in D1- I WAS OUTSPOKEN OF MY HATRED OF THESE ACTIONS AND ANYONE WHO WANTED THESE NERFS CAUSE .... IT RUINED THE BALANCE- THEY NERFED SO MANY THINGS LOL. SADLY, most of the requests came from trials of osiris players- backed by casuals watching their streams.)
I also understand that gaming is for all of those interested. When it came to this Forbes article, Paul Tassi did go in depth and disproved lots of notions against casuals.

[b][u]For this forum thread, I wish to know your thoughts about Paul Tassi's approach to the casual players. [/u][/b]
Let me make this clear.
I really love Destiny and D2 is just warming up to me as I [b][u]JUST GOT IT, SORRY IF MY PLAYTIME ISN'T 1000 HOURS YET. I GOT IT AROUND JAN. [/u][/b]
I want this game to succeed and I want this community to succeed as well. I absolutely hate the toxic people here- most of whom are just coming from rage quitting OR are a hardcore player who made an alt account so they can troll.
I ask YOUR thoughts on this stuff. Give me a constructive answer- or else you will be disrupting my DISCUSSION.
A discussion and thread about this topic is meant so I can see other people's sides and views and I can learn more about this community as a lot changed in the 4 years I was here.
Thank you all for your responses in advance. Sorry if I cannot get to all of you.
LET ME SAY THIS AGAIN. Every type of gamer is important to me- and in a game like this- our goal should be as a community to make it as fun as possible. Look at the population in destiny tracker. A community can make or break this game. Bungie is also a big factor.... but we as a community can make an environment even they can't truly ruin!
[spoiler]IF I see any disruption, name calling, and anything that does not contribute to benefit this place as a whole I shall mute and report you. [/spoiler]
[spoiler]Great responses so far!![/spoiler]
I love all these responses so far and it is a priviledge to see other Points of View on this matter.
Thank you all!!!
Well they should cater all. I understand that all the kids and unemployed people have the time to play 8 hours a day but also there are people with a real life who could just afford to play a few hours per week.
One major Problem will always be that pve and pvp are not clearly seperated. The toxic enviroment in these forums between this two very different player bases is a huge problem. For pvp and hardcore players the game can not be difficult enough on the other hand for some casuals it is already too hard. It is a thin line bungie has to cater. In my opinion a lot problems could be solved in clear seperated pve and pvp content. No nerfs would cause negative effects on pve. People play for loot so shut down the crappy rng system. Give more quest related but guaranteed loot. Also give more difficulty level options to the pve content. Why the endgame is only possible for max. Or nearly max. Light chars. Give more choices of difficulty like that you serve the hardcore and the casual base. Bye the way sorry for my crappy english. It is not my mother language.
