I have put in some major time in the Destiny Universe, Both Destiny 1 and Destiny 2. Among the many changes that D2 brought they removed any skill from their PVP mode, not much was required before but now there is none required.
All end game PVP activities used to require that you at least played through end game activities to be able to compete in PVP. In D2 PVP no longer takes your power level in to account, at all. All the raiding and nightfalls you did to get strong gear and weapons no longer matter, A person with almost no game time and shitty blue quality weapons can kill you, in fact they will do the same damage as your end-game gear.
So what is the point in progressing in PVE activities if you can get gear of the same power from Crucible events. This honestly makes me want to just give up Destiny all together. When I use my time to grind out gear and power levels I expect my work to give me an advantage over those who cant or refuse to complete end game activities.
This article started out as just an article to outline the Destiny 2’s upcoming Iron Banner. As I read the press release and saw the changes they made it made me angry, angry for those of us who work and play hard just so people who don’t put as much effort in can be on the same level as us.
Bungie is activating D2’s first Iron Banner on October 10th and it runs until October 17th. Looks like all the part timers will have something to do.
