I'm gonna get some hate but I kinda agree with most of what Buggy said on this, & I'm a huge destiny fan, but I'm tired of defending it. Although I'll most likely pr-eorder D2 doesn't seem like enough of an upgrade to make it 2.0, more like 1.75 at best.Buggy166 wrote: ↑Jun 1st, 2017 9:50 amEverything they added was what was missing from Destiny 1.0 and was never added, even though the players complained about fixes continuously for years.
if it makes you feel better knowing you were playing Destiny 0.5 and this is Destiny 1.0, so be it. I personally dont buy it. Given their track record of half-assing everything they do and double dipping on the game's price by bundling exclusive to reward new players only, I'll wait this out.
This would've been Destiny 2.0 if it was revolutionary instead of evolutionary. They reworked supers? WOW! No patch in any other game has ever done that before. They needed to release the same game all over again just for that!
They added LFG? Just in time, 20 years after every other mmo in the world had it.
Destiny 2.0 on paper is the equivalent of the iPhone press conference about the ground breaking ability of having folders.
I get that its a sequel, but all their major changes are literally things that they could've patched in game on Destiny 1.0 but withheld on purpose. Save for the new "story chapter" that will probably take 4-6 hours to run through, it will have the exact carbon copy game as last time. Nothing horrible about it, but on par to what a COD game, that comes out every year, offers. People expected something better after so many years of waiting.
If you're already a dedicated fan, then its a pointless discussion. If you're a general gamer, its worth considering the pros and cons.
They claim fixed load times, now maps and missions and all modes are playable without having to go back to orbit. Sadly no custom or hard to farm gear or decisions will be carried over from D1.
Not much on the faux matchmaking system they are implementing, I don't expect to as refined as LFG /100's or don't expect it to be become obsolete.
Any word on if they are upgrading the horrible vault system and if they are making a new a D2 Ghallyhorn?
My expectations are petty low for this, and I expect there to be a gang of micro transactions.
