I guess it had to happen :)
I gave up on Destiny long ago, Even though i never played it seriously i still felt that the game needed something.
People keep talking about The Order game length but they forget that Destiny is the game that had a very short story i liked but its very short and for that killed the game because i like to pay for completed stories or at least with some substance...
That's because 90% of Destiny's story is buried in the Grimoire cards. If you read some of them there is a lot of backstory and information there, but many people either do not have access to or care to load up the Bungie website or the Destiny Companion app to "read up". As with the article, I agree that they definitely need to increase the vault size; 100 of each category or 500 mixed would be plenty. Something that wasn't mentioned that is a 100% MUST HAVE is the ability to skip the damn cutscenes you've already seen. I can't tell you how many times I've seen "We've woken the hive!".
That's cause Destiny isn't a offline single player game. Destiny is a multiplayer game first and foremost. And has farrrrrrrr more content and replayability than the Order will ever have.
Who cares? I am so tired of these pointless articles. So many people stop playing every game ever, yet we don't see these nonsense articles? I love this game, but even I am at the point where I have done everything and am a Crux away from owning everything in the game. Yet, I will just play this game for the Crota CP and then play OTHER games till HoW release. Do I need to start a blog about this, or write an article about it?
So its pointless, yet you read it?? The article speaks to the expectation rather than purely the content. Sure, there are many articles out there that speak of Destiny in a way that makes them all seem like its a big old whine. But its a point of view, shared by someone that plays the game, whether you agree with it or not. If it is pointless to you, so be it, but then when you see the heading, just avoid these types of articles altogether. Save yourself the frustration.
He probably didn't read it, or skimmed it like I just did. Look there's probably a dozen posts exactly like this on the Bungie forums. He's got a good point, there's millions of players who've played Destiny, we don't need an article for each of them. There's nothing in the article that hasn't been beaten to death already. RNG sucks, repetition sucks, and so on..
Gabe, I skimmed it. I get the context. It's just beating a dead horse at this point. It seems to be the only game that gets these "I am finally done" nonsense. Every game runs its course and this game is no different. It's just comes off like some entitled person expecting $500 worth of content in a $60 price point. This game release in September, his "expectations" mean nothing in March. @ DivoJones You get it man, thanks!
Dude! I gut Crux last week LOL! Finally:) I feel I can relax a little, at last.
I played for 3 weeks then retired. The lack of matchmaking for Nightfall and Crota killed it for me. I don't have many friends playing console games (most of them are on PC) and it was awful to get a group going in game without chat option. And yeah, I don't care if you need coordination and stuff like that, I just wanted to try it and eventually get it done in the hard way.
"The lack of matchmaking for Nightfall and Crota killed it for me... And yeah, I don't care if you need coordination and stuff like that, I just wanted to try it and eventually get it done in the hard way." I see comments like this and wonder how much effort you applied before giving up and started making comments like this. If you don't care about quality, then you should have been able to get a couple of people that wanted to do the nightfall or Crota off a site like LFG within minutes. Takes like 20 seconds to list your guardian and while it's arguably a tedious step, it isn't like it's impossible to find people if you apply minimal effort (post on reddit, here, gamefaqs, bungie.net, DestinyLFG, etc). Furthermore, it's entirely possible to solo most of Crota without a high level, amazing guns or other people and every nightfalls can be completed solo. Sure Omnigul might be too tedious to solo, but they can all be done.
I agree that its easy to get a group together for a raid. I use Bungie forums #Raid and it works just fine.
When I wanted to play a 1X1 match on Starcraft, I had to ask people or join a created game with that purpose, but that was 17 years ago. We are in 2015 now, quality online games should have some kind of matchmaking and chat option. I want to get from work, sit on my couch and play without having to trouble with posting around, checking websites and stuff like that. The game is fun, but there are many other fun games around that doesn't need me to do the developer's job.
@ Rhap "quality online games should have some kind of matchmaking and chat option." I'm not going to argue about the chat option, as there is one ( https://www.bungie.net/7_Vo... ) that is quite limited, many don't know about, could be better and should have been there from launch, but I think a lot of people who've played the raid would agree that there shouldn't be a matchmaking function. I've played too many games with random people off LFG and such and getting a bad person can turn a 30 - 45 minute mission into a 2 - 5 hour time sink. Now if you add in people who might be severely under leveled (you can start the normal raid 3 levels under and by the end do 0 damage), lack a mic, have no idea what they're doing and so forth, then you'll most likely spend significantly more time trying to successfully do the raid with them than finding five decent or better people off LFG. Don't get me wrong, I understand you want the process to require absolutely no effort from your part and think that a system that doesn't give the option (even one that would be a total waste of your time) is a bit silly, but when push comes to shove, I am willing to bet you would rather find a team that can quickly do it, than play with randoms that can and will make the raid feel impossible to complete.
This guardian quit after reaching level 7.
I still play, but wich that they would bring more content. It lacks a lot, and the guardian should have more evolution, more costumization to make it diferent from the next guardian. But the biggest problem was always the huge lack of content, of mission, strikes and so on.
Late to the party!! So much potential in the game, but it ended up as an unpolished turd
I had a decently good time until the original level cap and then the murderous grinding simply turned me off. Great potential but the emphasis of grinding aspects alone not to mention weak and almost non existent story were more then enough for me to move on. Another point, revisiting the same bloody areas was beyond annoying, you would think at least a variety of locations would be a plenty. :(
One thing the author left out was the absurd amount of different currency types. Glimmer, Vanguard marks, Vanguard commendations, Crucible marks, Crucible commendations, Motes of Light, Strange Coins, Black Wax Idols (for Eris)... Why? Why is glimmer not the universal currency? And on the topic of glimmer and why it requires SO much for upgrades and such, why is there no real way to earn it besides popping Ether Seeds/Black Wax Idols/Blue Polyphage/Resupply Codes and grinding the same mission over and over for a measly 1000 glimmer or so? Why are we not rewarded glimmer for completing a mission/strike/raid? If we can't sell items, why does dismantling a weapon or armor piece yield such poor glimmer payoff? I expect to get at least a couple thousand glimmer for dismantling a Legendary piece of gear but I only get 100 or so. It's ridiculous. This game is so fun, but damn, the flaws are hurting it badly.
This guardian quit after reaching level 20 and realizing that Destiny is not game, it's a full time job.
Another article speaking about the same issues others have spoke about ever since launch. I just hope the reason why house of wolves is being delayed is so that Bungie can look to properly address some of these problems and give people who quit for whatever reason a proper incentive to want to come back. I doubt it though, this new Kotick Bungie sucks to be fair. I just hope Ubi are looking at all the feedback from Destiny players and making sure The Division won't suffer from the same issues.
I guarantee Detiny 2 will be amazing just because they don't have to worry about last generation systems.
Yeah because the fact it released on last gen systems too is really the root issue with all of Destiny's problems /s
I played the game for 6 month now and I gave up on it 2 weeks ago. Destiny just doesn't give people enough incentive for staying. It got to a point where it just didn't make sense to keep doing the same thing every week. My complains are: -Lack of matchmaking for Nightfall and Raid alienates people I play on PS3 and there are countless time I tried to find people to play with. The worst parts are that needed to do that outside of the game to find people. I'm a pretty persistent guy when it comes to finding players but it can get frustrating at points especially when you want to find those raid gear. -The tower is useless The tower is a terrible place to find people...most of them that are there are there just for the bounties. Some sort of system needs to be put in place so that people who want more players can find them on a board in the tower...Player will say what they want to play and how much experience they have doing it. that will definitely help distinguish who wants to do what. Also the stats on bungie.net you be vital to see who is a good or bad player. -Random rewards are terrible These are annoying...being the good and skilled at Destiny wont net you any rewards...keep doing strikes or pvp 50-100 times you might just be rewarded with something good but not significant. Grinding is what runs destiny and it hurts the game. Its going to take some serious improvements for people to get back on destiny.
To everyone who likes Destiny, do yourself a favour an play WARFRAME ... this game is everything Destiny wants to be - just in 3rd Person, and with Space Ninjas. Armors, crazy Weapons (even better than in Destiny) and you can indiviualize every Weapon and Armor, farming Ressources, Dogs that fight for you, a Spaceship with all your stuff, a Clan Dojo, in game chat ... this game has it all, and it's free!!!! I'm so glad i found out about this game, no way i will ever return to Destiny (played it for 4 months straight and i have all weapons and everything)
You're making me wanna check Warframe out. Sounds pretty badass.
I have 3 32's and got the crux last week. There isn't anything left to do in Destiny and most of my clan has moved on to other games only getting together to do a VoG or CE for the fun of it. So some buddies said what the OP just said so i jumped on Warframe to check it out. They all had semi leveled up frames and some pretty cool ones so I went on ahead an bought the Prime Access pack. kinda expensive but if you have people to play with Warframe IS badass. It has an unimaginable learning curve which had be kinda hating the game for the first couple of hours but once it starts to make sense it is just as addictive as destiny and its rewards are much more straight forward and FAIR! My Nova Prime is one mean Chicka. You should check it out...it is free after all.
oh but warframe is badass, it is. simply said
I spent lots of time with Warframe when I first got my PS4, and once you get an understanding of how it works, and upgrade a couple of warframes and weapons it is incredible. I still enjoy Destiny but I agree with schn0dd3r that Warframe is better in every way. And free.
It's fun while it lasts.
The problem with Destiny is that it lacks a soul.
This guy has spent on average 3 hours a day on Destiny every day since launch. That is way more than Bungie anticipated and I don't think the game is even made for that much. It's not really a MMO. I play about 5 hours a week. I don't have 500 Ascendant materials. I have about 40 in total. I still enjoy the daily/weekly events.
I've got over 700 hours and still having as much fun as I was in the beta! Everyone threatens to leave but they always come back lol. I see it all the time.
I'm with you, but lately I am slowing down. It has nothing to do with dislike, but I have every exotic for X1 and when I get the Crux, I'll have everything. I am still missing the Graverobber, but that's a joke of a sparrow (a different colored Timebreaker). If I play my 3 hunters and FINALLY get the crux and graverobber, I have absolutely nothing to gain. Level 32, all exotics, etc. I only do heroic strikes and nightfalls for the XP for my factions. Outside that, I have nothing to do. I will be getting Ori and the Blind Forest this weekend and will probably mess around with GTA Heists. I wish the HoW was coming in March, May is too long away for the lack of content The Dark Below has.
you should try warframe, it's free to play and I think it will blow your mind
But you bought the game, will very likely buy then abandon the next, so what does Activision care?
Sounds a lot like another game series Activision puts out...
I mean, this isn't an subscription MMO paid for monthly, so what does it matter if some gamers are playing other games? I would expect that many who have grinded to 32 and chased many exotics will be back for HoW.
Warframe is a much better game, and it's free to play. Makes density look like mickey mouse
