The #DrownInTheDrip had many guardians across the globe excited the share and show off their super cool, fun, and unique fashion. I personally submitted 6 different designs I spent hours over the course of the season working on. Awaiting the newly branded “TWID” for the results, come to find out myself and many other amazing fashions were passed over for copy cat, unoriginal and boring designs. Not all but specifically the Patrick Star, The Mask, as well as the Yoda l (2 of which are copies of a previous fashion contest winner). It’s so disheartening for players that invested so much time, thought and care into these fun, unique designs when people who watch a “Fashion Tutorial” on YouTube get selected for the designs they never even created in the first place. In a state of the game that isn’t really doing any particular thing great, has me having second thoughts about the amount of time I invested into this game I used to love. What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear and hopefully Bungie can explain their selections.
Its honestly extremely disappointing and disheartening to see these contests dropped by bungie only for them to pick people who copy from originals (that already won might I add) or the fact that two winner slots were supposedly taken by the same person, who used the same twitter to post their entries. I enjoy the meme drips. I really do. They make me smile or laugh or have a moment of "hey wait a minute" and then I spend the next few hours binge watching my favorite movies from the mask line, but there is something incredibly wrong about picking these fashions/drips when they have already won in the past, and its obvious its a copy of the original winner. All this says is to go back far enough and copy old iconic fashions and you get a win in these contests. Idk I was raised not to look at my next door neighbors test sheet and cheat off their answers and that is what this mega feels like in a way, just that the person who copied gets recognized for work, creativity, and gets a reward for it on top of that. Or idk like if someone stole the test answer worksheet and reaps the rewards for doing so even though everyone in the classroom knows and points it out. No clue if I am getting what I mean across, just that this time, this particular fashion contest, I feel wronged and for many, not just myself. There were so many fashions posted that looked amazing but were looked over for literal copies. That and the literal double winner who posted twice and both entries won.
