Bungie isn't lazy. There have been numerous stories about how awful their engine is to work with. If you look, every DLC they come out with is a different studio. They are throwing coders at it as best they can.

Not long ago, people asked for a way to mass delete shaders. Simple, right? Well, no it was a major pain in the ass for them to make (and was still half @ssed).

Of course they get me mad at them and then win me back with this.

Another pointless eververse emote. Awesome! Just another eververse event with rehashed armour and if we are super lucky maybe a reskinned old weapon. Yay!

Yeah the lack of weapons is the big issue. I have had one new gun drop in the past 2 months (and no exotics of which I still need several).

What is funny is it is so easy to just play for Eververse stuff that nobody pays. Probably another reason why their revenues are down.

Bungie making a few more changes towards the good (unfortunately I gotta keep playing to get my annual pass value out) :(

Prime engrams are going to be more frequent and better under 600.

They are also making power ammo in pvp less frequent, which is long overdue IMHO. One of the many things that broke PVP.

The more I look at "what went wrong", part of it is the gamers who Bungie is now listening too as well. I don't know who they are listening to anymore, but it isn't the D1 crowd. I think the PC crowd is new to Destiny and it is pretty clear they never touched D1. They seem to be the ones pushing the game in wrong directions.

There's lots of people on Reddit who think the game is in the best spot ever. I had to turn my notifications off on my phone for the Reddit app because I make one negative complaint and my phone explodes.

The best way I can say it is I think people are confusing grind with loot grind.

The game feels like a chore I have to do every week like take out the garbage, not something I want to play.

They put random rolls on some of the best guns from year 1! But all I ever get is some year 2 primary sniper and that edge transit grenade launcher.

There's just not enough loot. Sure, grinding to 600 is one heck of a grind. I did 2 milestones this week and got 0.1 power levels higher. If I was getting more loot, that would be more tolerable, but it just isn't. I haven't changed my loadout in weeks. I just plug along and do the easy milestones.

It just feels empty. It also hurts that so many gun types are completely useless. They've done nothing to even bring a relative balance even in PVE. Pulse and auto rifles are the only viable primaries.

Missed opportunity by Bungie not adding Y1 armor with random rolls and matchmaking for the Blind Well and EP.

Hopefully the raid is good because there's not really anything exciting about Black Armory but then again you can't really expect much from content that costs less than Curse of Osiris.

Been grinding away on Gambit to get the amazing new auto rifle.
Tonight I got "the meatball" to spawn for the first time ever to start the Malfeasance quest.
We killed it first by like a second before the other team finished off theirs.
The other team must of been choked huge.
