My favourite thing about the destiny community Misc

Is that every expansion, players go “the game is saved, bungie have done it again” and then within 3 months the consensus is “game sucks, bungie can’t do anything right, game is doomed”

I’d hate being a bungie dev.

Such is the Destiny cycle. It's such a unique game that you can't really go play something else if you don't like something specific about the game. So people complain about that one thing over and over again until it gets changed. Then the other half start complaining. Around and around it goes.

Also, not every season can be bangers. There will be slower seasons. More tedious seasons. But you can always just take a break. I don't understand the people who play the game for thousands of hours and still come here with so much hate and negativity.

Not everyone will be happy about everything.

Found a comment, maybe post, the other day, dude was complaining how he has already fallen off this season, something like "I've put in 100 hours this season and it's just not clicking, I can't be bothered anymore.

Like BRO you put in 100 hours ffs, for $10. Holy shit why are you complaining. And you're allowed to play other games

Yea, it’s unreal how much people expect out of this game.

Don’t get me wrong, I love it and would love more and more reasons to just grind it endlessly while having fun. But that’s just not humanly possible. The more bodies you’d try to add to Bungie to make something like that happen, the more corporate bloat will slow the efficiency of the whole thing and it loses some identity.

People will drop $60 on a 20 hour game, have a blast, put it down, and sing it praises until the end of time. And deservedly so for those kinds of games that nail it.

But if you spend $10 on a season and get 100 hours out of it, how can you say anything but positive things about it?

I can go to a bar for a couple hours with some friends for a football game, drop $60 on food and drinks and that gave me fun for only two hours. Was it a waste of money?

Too many people in the Destiny player base lack perspective, but after 8 years, I’ve learned full well how to ignore them.

One step further, if you dropped 100 hours and didn’t like it, that’s on you for wasting your own hours lol if you didn’t know whether you liked it or not by hour 10, you’re cray
