This community will never be happy...

I am going to make an extremely broad general statement. This community will NEVER be happy. Why? Because you want everything handed to you on a silver plate. Bungie has stated that is a MMO style game more than once. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I have to wonder how many of you have actually played an MMO before, where stuff is only relevant for that expansion/season and you have to either start all over, or spend any entire expansion just to get ready for the next one. I've also on many occasions challenged not only content creators, but people here on the community to assume the role of Bungie and design your own version of a small fraction of this game. Raid, Gun(s), Season, Expansion, whatever it may be and few have been able to do it. You can call me whatever you like, or think whatever you'd like to think, but in my opinion the harsh reality is a select few of us (and NO I am not one of them) can even begin to comprehend what goes into making a game of this size. So I once again challenge you the community with this scenario: The Witch Queen main raid: Describe to me since everyone seems to think they know best, the encounters, loot, story behind the raid, etc.

  • Mmos don't take away your purple gear. Guild wars 2 has been going for almost TEN years. My favorite characters are still wearing the EXACT same gear and weapons i bought them year one. Because the game is actually about playing the content not regrinding to simulate content

  • MMO veteran here. Played DC Universe Online from 2011 Launch to 2016, wrote guides for the game too. Played FFXIV from 2013 Beta to 2020. What Bungie is doing with D2 disgraces both of those games. Straight up removing entire pieces of content, especially content that people paid to access is not a regular practice of MMOs, or any game for that matter. Now, do things get streamlined and adjusted? Sure, but outright taking content from players? Not a chance in hell. MMOs focus on expanding the game and adding [b]more[/b] things for the player to do, so that they don't get bored. Like, FFXIV has so much content it's crazy to think about at times. I'll be honest man, it's funny how you claimed people here haven't played MMOs before, becauae I think it might be you who hasn't played any MMOs before.

Most mmos offer so much content per dlc it takes even the hardcore grinders months to get through - destiny needs to time gate content to stop even casual players from being done by week 2. 2. Destiny doesnt need to copy what other mmos do or dont do - we had a system that worked for [u]5 years[/u] perfectly, not to mention several mmos dont kill thier players progression per dlc. 3. Nearly every mmo uses class abilities or power as thier main sense of focus. Those NEVER get retired ever. Destiny doesnt have that. The guns ARE its focus. Every mmo player that had thier class progress deleted and made to regrind the same thing again would drop the series within a minute.

How anyone can praise bungies creativity when beyond light dropped with frozen versions of fallen after fighting scorn versions of fallen after fighting siva versions of fallen, taken versions of fallen and blue fallen in the prison of elders is beyond me.

Nothing you say can defend that.

  • Do not sweat it. This game is marketed towards teens anyways.
