Bungie says it's a 10-year project, but with a failing player-base is it realistic?
Nope , was good till it lasted. Lack of variety killed the fun.
Same here. Haven't picked it up in months. Hell, one of my four raid buddies has already sold his copy despite having purchased the season pass back in September... Honestly, at this point, the only reason I'll be breaking it out is to get the remaining achievements -- and even that is seeming like it will be more of a chore than anything else. :/ Sucks, cuz I really wanted to love Destiny. But, alas, that was not it's destiny... (I'll show myself out.)
Ah see, if my mates sold the game then I doubt I'd be playing. I still am playing it though. Its good to dip in here and there. I did crucible yesterday. Was good for the most part....then this happened in a game full of laggy B.S: http://xboxclips.com/SEPTIC...
"Sucks, cuz I really wanted to love Destiny. But, alas, that was not it's destiny... (I'll show myself out.)" you and me both I can remember drooling over the concept art and with glazed goggles of their past achievement I didn't take the time to really see the writing on the wall
I was done in january ... love it but not satisfied by the content added so far , and well with constant output of games we care about since january , My friends and I moved on . I have a feeling we'll ony be back for Destiny 2 , if the changes satisfy us
@texag 6 people in a raid. Shouldn't take hours.
@Septic "6 people in a raid. Shouldn't take hours." When NO ONE knows what they're doing and you are wiping time and time and time again, then yes it can take hours. Trust me I've been on the receiving end of that kind of crap-hammer on more than one Strike. People need to learn to communicate as well as listen. Also, WTF on your Crucible match? I don't know if that was because of lag or if the game glitched to all hell because you launched out of the arena like gravity just went sideways. @texag2011 If you own Dark Below you can go past level 28 easily with equipment available from the vendors and at least 1 exotic armor piece (Xur if you can't get drops - buy the engrams if you have motes instead of coins; 1/3 chance it will be for your class unless you play all three). I have a 29 Titan, 30 Hunter, and 31 Warlock and the Titan and Hunter took almost no work because they received 33 light Legendary and 35 light Exotic equipment that I received with my Warlock. Without even upgrading that gear my Titan and Hunter reached 28 by just equipping the gear. With a little more ascendant material both will be 31 along with my Warlock (33 light gear starts at 24 un-upgraded and 35 a bit higher than 24 - can't remember the exact amount).
For me I only do nightfall and weekly. After that I don't even bother with the game. I'll play full-time again when House of Wolves drops then get all my gear and weapons then stop playing full-time again lol. Lack of variety is the reason why I bought remaster of BL2 for PS4, it's what Destiny should have been.
I used to do the same but i havent touched it in about 5 weeks now. The dark below didnt have nearly enough content to hold me over!
I never started playing.
Same here. I definitely got my monies worth with over 300 hours logged but I have no need to go back at this point. For a while I ran relic in raids to keep me interested but after a bit that got stale as well. Hopefully bungie learns from there mistakes mainly to quit being lazy about variety in missions and gear, most peoples biggest gripe is cookie cutter missions and everyone looks the same with same gear @32.
I haven't touched the game in months I have 3characters at 32 have every exotics and legendary in the game you name it I have it gjallerhorn hawkmoon vex nechrochasm everthing no more challenge to be met sorry im back to dc universe an relm reborn oh and bloodborn
To be honest once they announce raid matchmaking I'll be back in a flash!
got a few friends who still plays it. I like it for a while. I just stop playing it and do either dead island , gta 5 or Advance warfare
you only have to visit the official Bungie forums, under recruitment, to know that there are still many people playing it. Everytime I want to join a raid or nightfall, all I have to do is go into the forum and Im gaming minutes later, sometimes people compete for the raid spots. If you refresh the app you can see new posts every minute.
I got bored after 2 weeks, people are just playing the same few maps this whole time?
Been a few months. Had they gone full mmo, I may have b/c I think it could have been one of the best mmo's ever. Oh well...bloodborne.
Nope stopped after the Hard Crotas End launch. There has been nothing to do in this game for over two months now. It's dead to me now. Have Season Pass but may wait until this rumored Comet expansion hits in the Fall and see if Destiny actually has anything to do at that point. House of Wolves won't be enough to bring me back.
Exactly same here and I think House of Wolves won't save it at all. Just 1 raid and few items...I'll get everything there is to get in a week by ver boring and repetitive grinding. Unless they add some stupid enchancement system again where you need 10000 shards to upgrade an item and you'll get maximum of 5 per raid/week.
Trust me, this game doesn't need "saving ". Millions play every single day and it will continue to be the that way until Destiny 2.
I agree. And even after Comet there's an entire year before a Destiny 2 could come. That would put it on a 2 year dev cycle which isn't good either. If the Division is anything near what it's looking like, that's probably going to keep my away from Destiny.
Gotta admit I haven't played in over a month. I don't mind grinding, but the end result is the exact same for everyone. The game needs variety.
The only sense of variety is the colours you use for your armor and the ships. At best you can try to obtain the rarest colours through the factions, but even that is a random (literally) drag. I am 27 levels into Dead Orbit and not one DO colour option, some have had it worse and others have been so lucky as to obtain all 4 colour options by level 13. Random is not variety, it is the lack achievement.
I still play but not get bored really quickly,(level 32 on two characters) what kept me playing before was ghorn and since getting it all other exotics I didn't even think I wanted have dropped so there is no more carrots to chase.
Thats my problem too. I dont have Gjallahorn but i dont have a real desire to get it either. Last week i had amazing drops. I got Monte Carlo from a Crucible match and Suros Regime from a Nightall. I have all the other exotics aside from Gjallahorn. I have no reason to keep playing considering i have 2 characters leveled up. I'm jist waiting for the House of Wolves.
I had three 32s I got so tired of the game I deleted both my Titan and hunter.
With the new DLC there is still the possibility of having to level up your exotics all over again, or some new "exciting" method that still requires the similar time it would take to level them up normally. If they allow the levels to remain as is, then they lose the longevity of the DLC. The DLC is suppose to keep players occupied until September for the release of Comet (Destiny 1.5). Guess what Bungie's secret card for adding artificial length? My guess is Osiris Trials, the event that gives you the Solar primary exotic...lol I've already begun to forget the weapon types and names.
@ Rezzah Their secret has already been done, they just delayed the content from March to May. This now makes the gap from HoW in May 4 month wait till Comet as opposed to 6 month wait if they released in March. The content is a joke. Where are the single player events? Where is the effort of giving the playerbase something new to do?
I was done after 2-3 weeks. I do still see a few on my friend's list on. Not sure what they could be possibly be doing at this point.
Yeah I'm still playing it.. Always on the hunt for Gally.. I do the nightfalls and crota.. I'll play strikes and iron banner with buddies from work and even hit patrol if I'm leveling something new.. Still fun for me.. But desperately needs new content
The secret behind the g-horn is that once you get it, everything in PVE becomes easy and the paste of doing things quickens a great length. Sure you'll run through raids quicker, but that means you'll run out of things to do that much faster. Then it all comes down to trying to find more reasons to remain playing destiny: trying to get some armor colours, ships, exotic armor pieces that combo with exotic weapons, etc. You start bleeding the game for every droplet. And no matter the time you put in the things you aim for are always random; nothing is certain except for marks and glimmer (lol).
No doubt.. Its just one of those things that keeps me playing.. I still need a hoc and fang.. So there's that (tho double rolls on hard make getting hoc pretty... hard lol) Exotics... Think its suros (had it and dismantled it way back like a dork), nlb (don't want it) and I think that's it.. Oh and I suppose I still need a crux to get a worthless ar lol
yup, 800 hrs in and im still having fun with it. helps when you have friends to enjoy it with. Looking forward to House of Wolves and Comet
Friends are the sole reason why this game continues to go on (what would you do if they stopped playing?). The only reason why I ever go on is if my friends ask me for help. Some still play, their either raiding or hunting Grimoir.
(what would you do if they stopped playing?) It does help to have friends but I would still continue to play even without my friends. Destiny LFG is a huge help for finding raid groups, everything else can be done solo
Until I hit level 32 ️yea.
The support for it wasn't what I was expecting. Bungie dropped the ball on a game that had wild potential. I'm playing Bloodborne.
Desti-wat? My destiny is with bloodborne.
Not for about a a year now? I guess. It was cool until I capped at level 20. Then the grind started and I uninstalled it. Thats not what makes a game fun. Getting rocks, leaves and gas to incrementally and artificially level up your character more. LOL. Yeah its pretty lame.
I played alott for the first few months, then haven't touched. It's a great game, could've been even better if the grinding wasn't so tedious. I would've loved it back in my teenage years, but now I just don't have time to do the grinding. Plus it just turned into a chore after a while, every day you have to log in, do the missions over and over just for the sake of doing them.
yup still playing.
Im still playing as well...but it is getting really repetitive...playing with my friends is what keeps me going. But once I get the order, bloodborne...etc then I will not play it as much. Needs more variety and something to entice me to want to play.
I loved Destiny. But now that there're no plans for RAID matchmaking I've stopped playing. There's no point in leveling up if I can't play RAIDS. Spending 45 minutes trying to manually matchmake myself and 2-3 friends isn't worth it. The arrogance of Bungie in thinking that they're justified in ignoring the fanbase's pleas for matchmaking because they feel it makes for a worse experience. At least youd have a chance to actually play a RAID when you wanted. And it not like after spending 45 mins assembling team of randoms that people didn't sometimes drop out anyways. Bungie arrogance has ruined Destiny.
I don't know if if it's arrogance or incompetence that's preventing matchmaking. Pugs are generally terrible but I've met more destiny friends doing strikes than I have begging in destinylfg.com. There should be a general chat in the tower to search for groups. It would at least add something to do in the tower aside from getting boned by the cryptarch Or kick a ball. It's flat out stupid to have to go to a 3rd party site to play a game that intentionally left out matchmaking for 2 key areas of the game.
I have never played a Raid, because not enough friends play Destiny, and out of principle I will not manually go looking for a group. I also find it annoying that Bungie dictates exactly how we play the game. One of the things I really enjoyed (and others too) was attempting the Weekly Heroic solo as a test of strength and skill. But now I am forced in to Matchmaking - no option to go in solo any more. Just seems Bungie are clueless or ignorant to the player base.
What annoys me is that people make groups on forums and say it's pre made when it's literally doing what matchmaking does but you have to go elsewhere to do it... This is just stupid and is why i haven't played Destiny as no matchmaking for raids throws away over 90% of the people who brought the game... Bad decisions by Bungie on alot of things with Destiny. No idea how and why people still play it tbh.
Exactly, making Raids as the only way to get exotic gear without matchmaking is killing the game...
Don't forget RAIDS are needed for radiant shards too. No game pisses me off like Destiny. I really enjoyed it but without RAID matchmaking there's really no point in playing anymore. What am I leveling up for if I can't do anything. I've done a few RAIDS from manual matchmaking from 3rd party sites or the Destiny app but the time and energy - not to mention the bloated 'friends' list, is just not worth it. Last Friday I spent over 45 mins trying to do a RAID with two of my friends and it never came together. The week before that, after 30 mins finding a team, two people dropped out and we were done. And now my friends and I are done with Destiny. They even bought Hardline for something else to play. If it took 20-60 minutes to get online in any other game I'd trade it in instantly. Well, I'll have to do that now anyways. There's no point of trying to progress in the game anymore and it's so lame matchmaking randomly. I thought Nintendo had ridiculous online restrictions, Destiny should win game of the year for worst online experience in a coop game. Well bungies not getting anymore of my money (or my friends). We were happy hanging out online and making Destiny a consistent play and bought the last dlc and planned on continuously buying fresh stuff to keep it interesting, but what's the point after level 28, without RAIDS it's a wasted effort. Game's a total dead end.
Never even bought it.
Negative. I really wanted to like it a lot. The marketing was excellent. The game was fluid being able to play with friends and setting yourself apart from others. Ultimately, I stopped playing back in November and traded it in shortly after. To be fair, I'm not the MMO type of gamer. I enjoy a campaign that has an ending in sight whether single player or cooperative. Also, I can't say I'm surprised to see the player base falling. Personally and also because I'm a working father of two, I don't have the luxury of pouring hours to days into a video game. Not that Destiny requires it, but hopefully you can understand what I mean.
Played NHL15 a helluva lot more. Lost interest.
Still playing 1 or 2 days a week. Which is perfect for right now, so many other games to play and catch up on.
I normally log in once a week. Play through the Daily Heroic, and sometimes the Weekly Heroic. It's become a bit of a Saturday morning ritual with me for for some reason! I still enjoy the game, and will probably play a bit more once the next expansion drops. Nothing will shake my disappointment that the game could have been so much bigger and better, but it is solid and fun - so I like re-playing the missions to see if I can complete the quicker or more efficiently. And if some good loot drops, that's a bonus.
The only reason why I play this game at all is the Crucible. I stayed away from the raids because I really protest the idea of what should be the most difficult portion of the game being completed in an hour. I thought I could reach level cap in the crucible and get gear that's just as good but damn was I wrong. After hundreds of hours in the crucible and IB and getting the best possible gear, I join a group and run from a few thousand thrall for about 5 minutes and immediately get a pair of gloves that poops on my Iron Banner gear. What sense does this make? So the crucible is beyond pointless. It takes less time and effort and SKILL to run a raid but you are rewarded with shards and gear. I had a string of 30 and 40+ kills in a freaking clash Playlist and got 3 blue items and a mote of light. So the game slaps me in the face daily with its disregard for solo players and competitive players but because I hate what cod has been for 2 years and find Battlefield unplayable, I'm forced to deal with people who show up with Hawkmoon and the last word with my vendor weapons.
I find it odd and bizarre that there are no equivalent Legendary items from playing Crucible. Seems insane to me. Bungie should look at adding Crucible only Bounties that lead to top end gear that is equivalent to Raid gear, or the Legendary Bounties randomly dished out.
I have mostly moved on. I hop on once every couple of weeks for a raid or nightfall but for whatever reason as much as I completely enjoyed my time with it, I have wanted to play other stuff *cough* Bloodborne *cough*. I will likely try out the new expansion when it comes out. Hopefully it will pull me back in but I am having a good time with the other titles.
No. Finished the campaign in mid october and that was it. Was gonna achievement hunt for the 100 kills per class but changed my mind.
Not really only do the nightfall that about it.It such a boring game now. It sad to because community was strong in the beginning. Hope next dlc is extremely good but it not so hype and care is gone.
Nope sold mine a wail back and so far I don't regret it. Had high hopes for destiny, but I guess just maybe destiny 2 would be better.
I stopped back in October prior to the first raid - I was level 22 and couldnt be bothered grinding to 26. A lot of people on my friends list still play everyday - i don't understand it, but admire their dedication
It's probably because they waited for the raid. The end game is the best part.
I got rid of it a couple months after it came out and then I just picked it up again like a month ago. It's cool in spurts.
Destiny is the new Titanfall. It started strong but then slowly fell out of favor. The only online shooter that never falls out of favor is COD.
TitanFall has only gotten better! best online shooter right now by far...
I don't know where you get that, I got on it for the first time in awhile a couple weeks ago, can't remember if it was a Friday or Saturday night, a prime time for going nontheless, and it was DEAD. There were like 200 players shown between all the modes. I wanted to play the Defense survival mode and there were like 15 people. I figured whats the point and shut it off. There is barely anyone playing that game. Maybe a few groups of gamers here and there but its dead. Thats why all DLC is now free. Knew I sholdn't have bought the season pass
No one seems to be talking about Titanfall. Usually if an online shooter is good and attracting a lot of gamers. The media and public will hype it up. That's not happening. That's not to say it's bad, but it's obviously not setting the world on fire like COD has for the last 5 years.
Nope, I only go online if someone asks for help or wants me to play pvp with them. I'll jump back on for the final DLC since I got the season pass. Bungie will have to actually put effort into the future of the series to get me to buy another Destiny game.
My friends and I moved over to Warframe, and are loving every second of it. Destiny was great, but we just ran out of stuff to do and things to get. I would have stayed forever if they would just feed the beast once a month or so. Now, good luck getting me back.
