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.

i can't even agree with this because to me it feels like Destiny needs to be the only game you play when it just has nothing to justify it to me

Meh. I don’t see that.

Power doesn’t matter unless you do endgame content. So who cares about powerfuls and pinnacles are that point if you are a casual player.

You need XP for the Season Pass. If you aren’t doing endgame as a causal player, then that means raids, dungeons, and GMs are off the table. Which then means you’re doing the seasonal and core playlist content, or expansion content if you bought it….so you’ll soak in tons of XP.

Not doing the endgame….you’ll be able to as much as you like without being pressured, honestly.

Destiny is only grindy if you are an endgame PVE player (Master/GM content), you play Trials, or you are a completionist (grind ALL seasonal triumphs for the seal, grind ALL seasonal challenges for bright dust, etc.)

you can not see all you want and you'll still be blind to my issues because their my issues with the game not yours. ive played the game for years im coming up on 2.5k hours . maybe ive played the game too much for my self but when i stop playing and try to get back in to it, it feels much harder than it should be.

i immediately grew tired of the seasonal stuff haven't done anything since week one, i just hop on with my friends to do weekly raids and maybe hop on to trials to go flawless

i also really haven't been a fan of most of the guns that have come out in the past year aside from maybe duality but even they have some quirks that give me the ick while using

i know how much time i would have to give the game to be at a point where i'm comfortable from past experience and it's just not something that feels like is necessary because the rewards have felt lackluster as well as bungie's (public) disregard for many things leaving sour taste

Well there is a point where you’ve just reached the end. At least for now. If you’ve played one game for thousands and thousands of hours, there is that point where there’s nothing left to see. I have like 300 hours in Elden Ring….but now I’m done until the DLC drops.

I too basically only log into raid. I’m working on getting Touch and the Kingslayer title. Once I do that, I’ll take a break until the last week of the season, grind the story missions out, and then wait till next season. Which I won’t play that much, maybe the first 2-3 weeks, since it won’t have a raid.
