This should come as no surprise, but there is another cap in Destiny 2 that Reddit users have discovered. This time, it's for glimmer.
Sigh another one Bungie oh boy revolution
Every step of the way Bungie is ripping off their consumers. Why are people even still playing this game? I don't care that its fun, the company is scamming you every step of the way. Wake up people, damn.
Because bungie will come out and apologize like they did last time and give a bs excuse like "we were about to remove it cause of our testing then the community found out, thanks guys for the help, we do this for you at the end of the day" And the community will forgive them, even if it means bungie release some stupid item for everyone
The bigger question is.... who else?
stopped playing for a while, back only for the mayhem PvP also notice the exotic engram drop rate is much lower
@NewMonday - it's ridiculous to be honest. I used to get an exotic for like every 10 public events I do. Now I am lucky to get 1 after doing 20.
First i will say I "woke up" before the first destiny ended with its crap showing of dlc. But my brother was blinded. Second, the reason why ppl still play is cuz at the core of the game, it's probably the best "fps" game. EVER... But that being said, every thing else is just horribly bad and it took a long time for my brother to realize that. But we both have stopped playing and have no intentions to play again.
Who cares? Let Bungie screw over the sheep, let the rest of us sit back and laugh.
That explains why it takes an obscene amount of time to get Glimmer. Even with a Ghost w/ 10% bonus on planet. They truly find every and any way to screw us players in Destiny. Since we don't have the content and depth what can we do to trick players into feeling they need to play more? I know, let's cap everything. Though I will say, the experience distribution was previously better. You could get all 3 bright engrams with the weekly boost incredibly fast. Now I have to do 3-4x as much just to get the 3 bright engrams with the weekly boost. Any given week I get far less bright engrams than I use to. I have to play A LOT more to get the bright engrams I use to.
Wait you're saying the cosmetic engrams that are offered are effecting the game? No way its just cometic stuff!!! Sarcasim over. I actually had to explain to guy on bungies reddit that systems were being manipulated to sell bright engram therefore they had an effect on the game. He kept focusing on the stuff you were given from the engrams had no effect. Which is a lie because as you pointed out ghost give boosts to material gathering. As long as there are Microtransactions of any kind in a AAA game the publisher, especially Activision/Blizzard, they will build the game around them and manipulate it to find your breaking point.
This isn't new - it's literally carried over from the first Destiny - exactly the same.
My glimmer is practically always maxed out its pretty much useless
You must never mod or use skins, that's where all my currency goes, I never have enough lol.
I do mod basically everything I have 3 maxed out characters
For the "maxxed out" fellas, do you even sleep? I play the game fairly often and money is always an issue.
It doesn't take much to hit the level cap I got there in just a few days without even doing the raid or any nightfall strikes.
Yeah same. I mod everything and always end up maxed out on Glimmer. I always have 99999 glimmer at the end of the day and always over 2K shards. They really need to do invent some better shard sink. =\
Same here. Just doing the milestones for all three characters makes the glimmer full. I get to the point I see I am maxed out on glimmer so I start modding weapons I will not use lol.
Destiny 2. Battlefront 2. Shadow of War. Those three games are the epitomize of what’s wrong in today’s AAA gaming industry.
Bungie are like an abusive partner that keeps saying sorry, but won't change their behaviour until their partner leaves them... A partner that doesn't quite have the intelligence to just walk away instead of believing them every time they apologise. Please, gamers... Zero tolerance for these lying, cheating, abusive pricks.
Oh wow, Big deal....
Yeah, this is why I just don't play these shitty games. Why volunteer to put up with this type of crap? No thanks lol.
I think people are pretty much tied with bungie of crap regardless if it's a big thing or not. I'm not sure when companies are going to learn that you can't Swindle Gamers anymore like you used to. People have a voice and they'll use it. Just look at EA Bungie. No really... look at them
They really are testing they're fans loyalty and patience, this is obviously a company that takes zero feedback from its consumers otherwise there wouldn't be so many anti consumer steps taken in such a short amount of time, its really hard to ignore and it says a lot about the people that choose to continually support and defend these practices
Why did i get suckered into buying this tripe?! I should have learnt from the first steamer! Time had past, i dont play these multiplayer online games often and thought i could play this with my brother....then the memories came flooding back of the grindy bullshit of the first game but this time its even worse! Fuck bungie in the face!
Oooh bungie, why did You went to Activision? Why didnt You try a New deal with Microsoft or Sony?
bwahahahah! who are the gullible dimwits that keep buying exploitative trash like this? its hard for me to blame ppl that think this industry is for kids. most ppl in the mainstream dont have any self restraint or research skills to realize theyre being played like puppets.
Is it Bungie or Activision? I would bet Activision.
And yet so many people continue to play Destiny. What else can Bungie get away with and still keep players?
I got this game from Nvidia, played it for about an hour before dropping it forever. Don't understand what people see in this series.
Its glimmer who cares, the xp cap is a big deal, eververese is a big deal, but this not really a big deal. They had this in D1, yet no one really seem to mine. This is only a issue because of the state Destiny 2 is in.
Yea, it would be an issue if it was hard to max out glimmer. I am always maxed out on glimmer and I mod everything, change shaders, etc. This is a non-issue but people are looking for anything to complain about with this game. The whole eververse thing is laughable. People rioting and crying over cosmetic gear which is easily obtainable by playing the game. Even the Dawning, I obtained a full set of the Dawning gear for my hunter, didn't spend a penny, and still have 4,000+ bright dust. People don't realize you get bright dust for dismantling ghosts, ships, sparrows, and shaders you receive when you cash in bright engrams.
Eververese is a problem, due to the fact a good junk of the ships,sparrows, ghosts, and shaders go through her. While in D1 she had those things, you could earn a huge portion of them through other endgame activities or even buy them with glimmer through the npc. Having 4k bright dust doesn't mean much when certain things cost close to 3k+ just for one item. That's another thing that needs adjusting is the pricing on how much dust it cost to buy things. Your correct you can earn what eververse is selling through playing the game, there's only one way of getting bright engrams and that's leveling up. Unless your playing religiously you may get a couple bright engrams a week. So rather than doing tedious activities just for the xp, they'll take out their wallet instead.
How the once beloved have fallen. Wonder how much, if any, of the blame can be put on Activision?
