Destiny 2 has once again come under fire from its community, with players now learning that its Curse of Osiris DLC has locked them out of its Prestige Leviathan raid.
wow.. way to go Bungie. That's because they changed the level requirements for the Prestige raid to 330. So in order to achieve a LL of 330 you need the DLC.
But, I'm sure it was an oversight. Had to be...
Nothing new here. They did something very similar in destiny 1 and barely anyone batted an eyelid. Bungie and Activision are just as scummy as EA.
Destiny is a game that is meant to have DLC. If you never plan on buying DLC don't buy it. They are making all the old content relevant with each new season .. BRAVO Bungie...this was the move to make and thank you. Now the new campaign kind of stinks but the other new content is pretty decent.
When Bungie was making Halo for Xbox they where better. Then they tripped, now they are falling. They used to be a company that cared for players along with business. Now they have the too greedy to be loved attitude. Now they are becoming EA SCUM.
Glad to see you all got the obvious sarcasm...
@killswitch80 So, we're not supposed to buy a game to enjoy all it has to offer unless we are ok with them taking modes from us until we cough up more money? Wow, glad the future of gaming isn't in your hands.
Is it Bungie or their publisher? I'm willing to bet the latter made the call on this. They need to start selling cologne. "Lubeless By Activision" Probably smells like bare skin.
So glad I decided to get off this particular merry-go-round.
Sadly this has been an issue since the Halo 3 days. Couldn't enter Big Battle Mode or do certain mutliplayer activities unless you owned the DLC maps. It was BS then and BS now.
Also locked out getting a platinum on the main game now, one requirement is completing either the prestige raid or nightfall, both of which are now 330 now!
So it's best they just leave Raids left behind each DLC like they did in D1? Not to say I agree with the move but if it's this or flat out leave old Raids behind then I'll take upgrading them to match the max player level every time. While I've never been a fan of them removing content such as strikes during year 1 and their entire process and model sucks but it's what they do. I could write and entire article, perhaps book about problems Bungie creates for itself with Destiny. Bungie themselves have no clue and it's shown for 3+ years. D2 gamers have had the past 3+ months to complete the Prestige Mode if they wanted to. The raid, in the past, has been completed and played by a very small minority of Destiny gamers. And even then few, if any likely continuously run the Hard Raid for months on end. Though the lack of a new Raid with the DLC might lead to people continuing to play Leviathan longer than normal. This is what Destiny is though. A game that requires continuous DLC or Season Passes to play. Whats most unfortunate is the fact they sell us a vanilla game for $60 then add minimal DLC/Season Pass content. Though that's only a small portion and I'm not going to write that book right now. Point is. Is they left it alone it would be a problem. If they upgrade, as they did, it's now a problem. There's really no possible win in this situation for Bungie and it's funny to say this but, it's really unfair. There's far more to gripe and complain about regarding Destiny than this.
well that is what the new "Raid Lair" was supposed to be for. Leave that to the new content and leave the old Leviathan raid as is. I get what you are saying as it gives us players a chance to keep playing the raid and not leave it alone like D1's older raids (until they updated the raids with max light level right before the end). But for people who bought the base game and were able to enjoy this content, now suddenly they can't is a little shitty and a bad practice.
This is a dumb move, Bungie !
Good job BUngie / s
? lol I tried looking up what the short cut " /s " means could not find it. Someone help
It means the statement was sarcastic.
Yeah that was smart.... guessing it's Activision behind this bone headed move but then again, you'd be surprised where bone headedness can come from.
It's no dissent than the first game, if you didn't want round robin matchmaking for Pvp you Had To Buy the New Dlc When Released.
Seriously, is there not a single person among the devs or in the marketing team that could say: "It might not be a good idea to do it like this" !?
I'm sure there were but greed is a powerful mistress.
I agree as a business developer I have had conversations like this to marketing executives. There will be a greedy but kisser that will convince them otherwise because of greed.
or they were like well everyone that is still playing Destiny 2 would love if the new stuff would scale. It would be terrible to waste content as the seasons progress because the old raid content is no longer rewarding...I am so happy they did this so I can still revisit old raids and get rewarded several seasons in.
Except you don't have content laying around that could be wasted. They did this on purpose no did waste scenarios ever happens. Content takes lots of man hours to make. Plus you don't have to put a hook into software. That takes money to do. It was concerted and on purpose.
Hear you cant even do Heroic Strike Playlist without the DLC
This is why i wouldn't buy a device which focus is on playing 3rd party games because these games are becoming worse and worse thanks to these greedy big publishers who account for the often cited 90% of available games are trying to squeeze the last penny out of us gamers. I it will only get worse. In most cases i will just let the majority buy these games, i rather stick with the showcases which are there lure gamers to a specific platform. They mostly are quality experiences to serve as bait and have more down to earth ways to make money (worthwile dlc etc).
Yea....only played the story and finished it. Dont really feel like going back til the raid comes out and play it with my buddies...very disappointed in this so called "expansion". Tired of the grind, nerfs, and horrible tactics like this theyre doing to us...
Yeah and Nintendo locked Zeldas hard mode and the ability to level up your master sword to DLC... get over it.
Nintendo didn't get enough flak for that. thanks for mentioning it but doesn't make this one right here right
That was new content, and didn't lock out previously released content... It's still dumb to pay for a hard mode, but the master trials was a separate thing unrelated to the story.
Don't respond to jinger. He loves any thing anti-consumer.
That's why I took a dig at Nintendo and what they did with Zeldas hard mode? Shut up
Games dead, deleted it after the second mission of dlc took me back to earth.
LMAO I am sure the huge player base would disagree ...oh wait the game is dead because SirBradders stopped playing it LOL
Glad I learned my lesson from the first game.
Time for gamers to stop playing and teach them a lesson.
They gotta get that community service cash some how right
stop buying games from these guys , I mean stop completely and they will understand why after about 2 months . Stop buying the game not just the expansions
Didn't expect otherwise to be honest. It's Activision.... And they are just as worst as EA
Yet somehow this was voted as GOTY?
The sheep will keep buying, there is nothing we can do.
I think your being sarcastic. But if not Don't believe that bull. There is something you can do. And people did it. People Stopped buying battlefront and was cancelling pre orders. It lost BILLIONS it was to be the first GRAND theft auto in sales that did not take years. But instead EA was FORCED to take micro transactions out. And it still never returned to expectations. If we can beat EA with the largest IP on the planet earth then we can beat them all. They are trying to convince us that we cant do anything about it. They only person that thinks they cant do anything about it is the person that is unaware of his power.
Good job Bungo.
ROFL good one. Bungo thinks of how to get greedy. Bungo says BINGO! I have a evil Idea!
I am glad they did this. I love that I can do the raid and get high end rewards still. Lets be honest everyone that is doing prestige raid content is going to be buy the DLC. Hopefully these Raids continue to scale into Season 4.
They did the same thing with almost every other DLC release for D1 and it sucked. Wish they would have took a different approach this time. I suspect this is Activision's doing but they just seem to want to piss people off. So much wasted potential...
These gaming companies be robbin its supporters. This is madness.. I'm glad I didn't buy this crappie game
Good thing I skipped over this game. There was so much hype, so much "Bungie/Activision learned their lesson(s)," and so much down voting for people who knew better; yet it's the same garbage as the first game.
