For those of you who are unfamiliar with Destiny‘s leveling system, once a player reaches Level 20, leveling ceases to increase from experience points and instead focuses on gathering resources in order to obtain better weapons and armor.
LMFAO. Epic, just epic. Bungie should be ashamed of themselves for making a game so utterly rubbish.
If you the grind, don't play it. Seems simple. And don't play any mmo, b/c the grind is often the point. In FF14, there are many players from FF14 that don't think the game is grind enough. For many, spending 18 hrs a day grinding is what separates them from others. It's definitely not for me, but it's either RNG or grinding as a way to obtain the gear needed in most mmo's to get you strong enough to do the most challenging content. And as I said, many see it and it's rewards as a mark of commitment. Many devs have found ways to spruce it up, but it's impossible to make enough content to keep hardcover players busy. Also, if too much content is made, no new players will ever start.
What if I NOT the grind, though? Where does that leave me?
I canceled my subscription to FF14 because it became grindy.
Arrrrg, Destiny is not a bloody MMO, so stop with that nonsense, even if you were to consider it one, it's still pretty bad by MMO standards
I the ENTIRE grind!
All your grind are belong to us
To be the grind you have to beat the grind.
Just when I thought I had heard of all the ways to deal with Destinys GRIND! Lmao
Kind of impressive but really stupid. Why play destiny if you don't enjoy playing destiny? What exactly does he want to do with the rank and gear that he gets from this? I don't get why people are obsessed with trying to get the best gear and highest rank, if they dont have fun doing that. Is he going to like to play destiny when he gets everything? Or will he just stop playing and have waisted even more time making a way to grind stuff he wont use. Destinys design is not the problem, is some people's strange need to have the best stuff, even if they dont want it. I play destiny every once and a while ( would be more if there was stuff to do) because I enjoy the gameplay and have fun with friends. I don't try to pointlessly grind; thats not fun.
Some games are enjoyable but to get to the enjoyable part u have to deal with the bullshit first. 65% bullshit grinding fest that nobody enjoys, just do it because they have to, and once ur done u can enjoy the rest. So basically he was a genius he said fuck the bullshit Im just going to build something that deals with that instead of me and after, once done, I can get to enjoy the rest of the game. kinda like wow. there is always grinding, though I enjoyed it way more in wow, but sometimes it was a chore. in Wow the game only begins in the end game.
But none of that references destiny really. We aren't talking about wow. What is he going to do differently at level 20
@wsoutlaw87 I donty know, future expansions may change the game and what not, personally I never got destiny as I saw what they were doing with it. but all im saying is that some games have a part grinding and that the enjoyable part is at the end.
This guy isn't smart. He put way too much effort into this All he had to do was start the highest ranked Vanguard Strike Playlist, wrap his mic cord around the left stick so that his character just stands there spinning in circles, and let the other gwo random people he got teamed with through matchmaking do play and finish the level. Then he would the rewards and gear just like them. Seems much easier than building a friggin robot.
You're the guy I would kick or just leave you there
Grinding is apart of every mmo so people complaining about leveling from 16 to 20 in Destiny would have died leveling 45 to 60 in vanilla wow or leveling 1 to any level in EQ. With that said, I'm sure they'll patch ththat spot sooner or later. That's really the go to spot for everything at this point.
I played the original WoW (before any expansions) and I don't remember doing anything quite like this leveling from 45 to 60. I was constantly doing instances of slightly higher degrees of difficulty doing quests and farming. WoW was nice because every 5 levels you could go to a new region and do stuff related to that level. Destiny lets you play the story missions if you want, or you can do the same bounties over and over again each day to help you level up.
I remember Wow and burning crusade back in the days. so much grinding...
EQ "Grind" was wayyyy more fun than Destiny.....and still is
It is a bit of a grind but they made that to get from 16 to 20? everything up to 20 is easy, its grinding for legendary and exotic gear that sucks.
Lol! Reminds someone I know playing Wyd II using macros for this type of stuff. And with 2 desktops in the same PC. All day grinding with 2 characters. When compulsion surpasses fun. Really, for me, such a waste of a good shooting game.
Craigslist, robots? Pffft. I have my own slaves. *slaves whimper in background* WH-TSH!!!! BACK TO WORK PEASANTS! LESS WHINING MORE GRINDING.
Destiny was the first Bungie game I didn't have fun in. If you don't have fun with it why go to these great lengths for virtual gear and a rank that you didn't even work for? To me there is no sense of accomplishment.
I liked Destiny until I hit level 20. Then it just felt so much like work. Then I quit.
That's what happened to me
getting to level 20 was the worst part of the game, everything after that is infinitely better.
I got sick of grinding so I havn't played Destiny since like September. Also I got Shadow of Mordor when it came out, and there was no looking back lol
Titles like these need to be banned.
Bungie really shit the bed on this one. Way too much hype and budget to wind up with this unfinished paper thin joke. Graphics and gameplay are spot on including enemy and level design but that's it. I stopped playing at level 15 and won't pick it up ever again. Waste of time. Filler story. Lack of levels within each locale. Reminds me of Brink in the way it failed. Separate campaign and multiplayer exist for a major reason. I as the game purchaser should decide weather I play on or off line. 6 out of 10.
Not much different to using a Bot or macro on MMORPGs, which will get you banned.
Getting to level 20 is a little bland Getting to 32 is an entirely different game, is easily 100x better. I don't even want to look at my time played because it's probably close to the time I spent on Socom 1, 2, 3/CA, and Confrontation and those that know, that was best a shooter can get. I'm not saying this game is great, but it is highly addicting. When you find friends to constantly do your weekly's and raids it makes it much more enjoyable since you're experiencing the entire game. Make a 2nd character if you find yourself grinding mindlessly, like I did. Then you find yourself trying to gather materials for the new weapons and armor you find/buy along the way. If you haven't tried it, just get to level 20, takes about 2 full days of playing to get there, but once you start getting your first legendary/exotic pieces you just want to keep getting more. BTW I hated the beta and it almost made me not buy this game. I didn't get this immediately on launch day until I watched some more vids showcasing the full game.
I think Destiny is the greatest FPS ever made. However, this article is ruined by a picture ad of a pregnant woman in a bikini with big fake boobs. Sigh.
