When in a Twab it was said that there were no plans currently in place to sunset exotics, I think a lot of us breathed a sigh of relief, but I have always had that in the back of my mind, thinking about the word "currently."
I think that most people agree that while some exotics are pretty good, most of them aren't breaking the sandbox. Anything that is usually just needs a bit of a tuning.
Besides, while exotics are just as much a part of the sandbox as legendaries are, they've always kind of operated differently. While there are plenty of good legendaries, there are only a few really exotics that match up at any given time. Considering that, it should be far easier to balance out the exotics in the sandbox than the legendaries.
All this to say, most of us don't think there's very much reason to sunset exotics, and most of us would like to see them stay uncapped, especially when so many of them have never had their chance to shine.
Edit: I probably should have guessed that my first post to make it to the top of trending would be one about sunsetting.
Honestly I'm just glad that this is getting some visibility. As much as I think bungie isn't going to make that mistake, I'd rather give them the feedback now and leave it up to chance as little as possible.
So thanks for putting me here.
