I totaled everything up and you can’t get to 400 points without extensive amounts of Crucible play.
This is a bummer because I don’t like crucible; it’s joyless and unrewarding. To understand why, I reflected on my time in Destiny 1 and why I played PvP.
I have never enjoyed PvP in any game, but I did play it in D1. Here’s why:
Grimoire, Weapons, Light Level and Iron Banner.
I tried maxing out my Grimoire in D1 because it qualified my status as a Destiny player.
Crucible weapons were good enough to warrant playing.
Light Level mattered in Iron Banner and Iron Banner offered rewards to get to max light. The first time I ever played PvP was IB to hit level 30. When I was level 30, I felt like a god.
Iron Banner was worth playing because the armor looked good, the emblems were cool and the weapons were OP.
Crucible in D1 was stomach-able for me because I could be effective as a solo player. I sucked at crucible, but in grinding for Grimoire, I improved from a 0.3 K/D to a 1.0. Big whoop, I know, but I did that. My “skill” got me there; team shooting wasn’t it; I solo queued and worked at it. My K/D was a reflection of ACTUAL effort, not this kill / death / average / damage / effectiveness / support / help / participation trophy crap that literally tells me nothing.
The removal of everything as listed above, is why I don’t touch crucible. I really want to get all of my Moments Triumph, but am not willing to part with that much of my soul in engaging in something I hate.
There is minimal pvp requirements for YoT, like it or not, pvp community should be included in some part in these as they are part of the game. It is not like it is requiring a flawless or competitive play.
