This was exactly my thinking, I posted on reddit about this that the devs are just doing what they are told but the true fixes are being shot down by the higher ups to get us to this point. I do remember that stream though, Deej has hardly ever had a leveled up character but he is basically the PR and voice of the company with Cozmo and Dmg. The people making decisions are not the people that should be, as they aren’t play testing these things. They look at numbers, financial papers, player count, and run the business. We have entered a completely Bungie run game now, and with all the people pretty much gone that made halo what it was, these events unfolding is interesting as they unfold.
