Many redditors are accusing Bungie for the many bugs of the Hard Mode of Crota. They say that Bungie is only fixing the glitches and it doesn't patch bugs to punish the gamers.
They aren't leaving because of Hard Mode, they are leaving cause the fact that these bugs that they are encountering are the same ones when the DLC launched, making it just not fun or worth the time to do the raid. I wasn't expecting them to trea this raid any different than the last one, and that is basically ignore all the issues and just fix all the ways to cheese it. I mean, I understand, but come one do your job and make it playable at least for most people instead of having to deal with all the random bugs
EXACTLY! I would have no problem with this raid if they would fix all the bugs that infest the encounter. Just too many things can glitch out and it makes it not fun. Dying more because the game causes you to die more than your own mistakes.
We can add that after every death the amount of heavy weapon ammo decreases, cause a bug. You have to spend millions to buy purple synthesis before every raid.
I left about 2 months ago when I realized that Activision is balls deep in this thing and I'd have to pay for the other 50% of the prototype that they decided to axe and sell later at a premium. If the game was anything other than constant grinding over and over in the same environments while getting whacked by poor exotic weapons balancing in MP I might even be OK with that. And I never even ran into any of the glitches.
I saw that they nerfed (or buffed, shall I say) the mission Fist of Crota, cause I presume too many people were farming bounties on it. Because of that I barely could manage to solo it with my weaker 2nd character. (27)
we played it last night on hard...had the Templar almost dead an it just glitched out an killed everybody...we was pissed....
I thnk you might be talking about VoG. There is no Templar in Crota's raid
He is talking about the vault. But it doesn't matter because he is referencing the bugs that plague this game.
I am well known Destiny lover. But Bungie is just dragging out HM with all these bugs. I mean, I was in a group that should have beat Crota in 10 minutes. I know groups that owned Vault of Glass HM and is getting killed in Crota HM. I think it is a matter of luck sometimes. Bungie seems to forget this is just a game and it should be fun. We should be getting tons of fun through content, not making things so hard they suck to play. I know many who will not buy any DLC after the Wolves DLC until all of it is out and is discounted. IT does not speak well for Destiny 2. I know I myself will not buy Destiny 2 until Destiny 3 is 6 months away.
You know what kills me man? Watching Hallowed knights health regen in front of me. Not all the way but I'll be lighting them up with word of crota, then with a slither it just goes back to a quarter health. come on Bungie. Wait till they fix the middle platform. They will extend the boomer range.
I managed to beat HM crota with a group of randoms. So in my book this isn't diffcult. It's the small bugs that make it take longer than it should, like crota hitting the swordholder while his going down to a knee or being able to hit him as the swordholder has cleared crotas platform. small things like that can frustrate a team, especially people with no patience. But hell I got my Fang of Ir Yut so im a happy Mofo.
Bungie logic: "Let's fix VoG by releasing a new raid so very few will visit it again!" months later "Let's fix Crota's end by hyping the new raid then release it!" I gave up on Destiny after the bs responses from DeeJ. There's only so many times the phrase "we hear you" can be believed.
All a matter of luck. Getting Crota down and getting enough hits on him, repeat. Sounds simple right? Well the amount of times I've seen Crota with 0 shields, just stand there and not go down but instead swings at the guardian with the sword and kills him...just stupid. Nothing special about this raid, VoG was mechanically more impressive imo. Being teleported into another "time" killing oracles and then get back to dmg Aetheon was fun as hell. Standing there shooting rockets at Crota, while 1 guy jumps up and swings a sword at him over and over is boring... plain boring. Hope HoW is better than this let down. Edit: Bungie fixing raid bugs? LOL! There's still bugs in VoG that were there day 1.
To all the scrubs that post online how you hate Destiny, your done with Destiny and the like, let me be the first person to say this to you. No one cares. No, seriously. I don't know how we have reached a point in this world where we believe that we are all special snowflakes and that anyone should give a proper fuck about playing, or not playing a game. Destiny will be fine without you. People that play Destiny will not miss you. Kick rocks you sore losers. Lastly, if you can develop a game of this magnitude, that looks and feels this good, I will concede. You gamers have no clue what it takes to design anything on this level.
Blind loyalty is just as foolish as blind hate. I've sank my fair share of time into Destiny, bought the DLC pack, and had my fun, but haven't touched it in almost a month and don't know when (or if) I will go back. If you want to dismiss the numerous complaints about the game and say "tough", then enjoy a future of gaming where developers only do enough to take your money from your hands and never address obvious issues that a game like this has. I don't know about you but I guess I just expect more out of the industry the represents my lifelong pastime.
@Algorithm427 - so I take it that you have never voiced your complaints about a game you have played in the past? You must love every game you play then..
Nope. I don't waste my time really. I was very vocal against Microsoft for their original stance with the Xbox1.
you were very vocal because you didn't agree with what they were going to be putting out to the public. A lot of people are angry at Bungie/Activision for what they are delivering to people with Destiny. Hence the frustrations and vocal opinions. No different really. Will Destiny survive without a few players that decide they don't want to support it anymore? Absolutely, but Bungie/Activision do not want that sort of reputation on their hands. Especially considering Bungie for the most part was loved by MS fans. They aren't off to a great start on their first project away from the covering blanket of MS. I play Destiny every day, and I can be the first to tell you that there are many problems with this game and how they have it structured. If they don't have content planned for after HoW already then it's going to be a long dry-spell before we get anything new.
You think that's why they leaving? and you think they just leaving now? Keep thinking that.
I had only a few issues so far with Crota's End Hardmode MOST of the time it had to do with lag from other players. So far I have beaten it on Hardmode with 3 characters of my own, and have ran it with other groups about 4 or 5 times.
I know for a fact I have got my money's worth.
Hard mode is a pain. I have attempted it on 3 different occasions and every time I go in there is a new strategy to utilize. I swear, by the time I actually get this thing completed I will know like 15 different ways to do it. I don't mind it being hard, but I do mind it when things don't work properly or glitch out. That's dumb.. you could be having a perfect run and lose it on the last sword because something doesn't work like it is supposed to.
This is why I stopped playing. You can't keep asking me to pay top dollar just to stay current with your game and never patch the raid wiping bugs on top of all their wild and crazy new content grinds. This game is such a beta that I couldn't bring myself to fork over my cash to continue playing as a tester. Hoping destiny 2 is better.
The bugs are a problem. Absolutely. No doubt about it. But these bugs are really in the context of the content itself. Hard Mode Crota is Hard. Artifically? Maybe, but regardless, it is hard. It takes damn near perfect execution to beat Crota on Hard. Not just perfect execution of one player. But 6 players. Simply stated, that's a tall order and not all players are that good. In that context, that is what makes the bugs so bad. If you finally get a full team of 6 coordinated and doing the right things at the right time flawlessly and then the game glitches on you...It is absolutely infuriating. That said, Destiny had a rough week last week. Frustration between the difficult content and the bugs invoked some serious gamer rage. But it will cool down.
I think its exaggerated that tons of people are leaving because of crota on hard, but I don't doubt they are. The bugs are killing the raid, there's enough in crota on hard that frustrate the elite raid runners. Having the sword disappear right after killing the sword-bearer, Crota being able to spot the person who's invisible, Crota having his shield taken all the way down only to take out the sword-bearer than take a knee, boomers jumping down from their spot, Ogres not appearing like they should, slam hits not counting, I could go on. Bungie needs to fix the problems that hurt the game for all, rather than fixing cheeses that don't effect anybody who doesn't do them.
I think that people are just tired of what Destiny is offering. DLC... Grind... Bugs... Rinse and repeat...
Clearly you've never played an MMO before.
Destiny is made for grinders, period. So for all those using that as an excuse to hate the game, it's obviously not a game designed for you. I personally don't mind the grinding as it gives me something to do every weekend when I have nothing else to do. Bugs exist in every game, sometimes more than others, sometimes less. The fact that I've played copious amounts of strikes, story missions, weekly strikes, daily heroic missions, crucible, and several raid play throughs and have only experienced one bug. One night, I attempted the VoG raid with five other people and couldn't get through the first gate. Next time I played it, got through in about five minutes. I just think people are looking for reasons to complain. If you don't like the game, then say you don't like the game. If you're tired of playing the game and are moving on, then say that. Don't blame bugs or repetitive gameplay.
It is crazy with all the issues that plague this great game. The more we play the more frustrating it becomes because it's like once you hit level 32 the game losses it mind. There are a lot of things that have to be fixed....like while you are almost complete with a raid being booted out of the servers. Fix the bugs that make it difficult....user error are going to happen learning process but having to deal with bugs on top of that makes it frustrating...I still grind but it takes the satisfaction out of it.
