Bungie cancels Destiny 2 expansion livestream in order to address player concerns

Bungie cancels Destiny 2 expansion livestream in order to address player concerns

As expected, today Bungie published a blog outlining the state of Destiny 2, and what they plan to do going forward to address community's concerns over the game.

"We had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of Curse of Osiris to show off some of the weapons and armour the expansion includes", Bungie community boss David "Deej" Dague explained last night via a post on the game's forum.

The case became a political lightning rod in the debate over immigration policy. The city has been plagued by an epidemic of auto burglaries in recent years.

Bungie has addressed the issues with Destiny 2's XP gains in a post listing a range of improvements set to arrive in the game early next month. Bungie even acknowledged the desire for some sort of ranking system in PvP although the game's directors were not willing to commit to any kind of timetable for when such a feature would be added to the game. Players can either gather XP and receive a Bright Engram (Destiny 2's loot crate, albeit with no major game-affecting boosters à la Star Wars Battlefront 2) or pay real money to receive one instead. But players soon found out that the solution apparently involved doubling the amount of XP necessary to level up, which only caused a further outcry in the community. Just look at the angry threads on the front page of the Destiny subreddit, which touch on issues like PS4-exclusive content, exotic emotes and a lack of variety. Cue the justified outrage.

All of this has left a bad taste in the mouth of hardcore and casual players alike, and when coupled with the nearly three months of zero game balancing (in the form of weapon and subclass nerfs and buffs), the community is at a boiling point. But it's probably wise for Bungie to cancel a promotional event for a paid add-on at this time, considering the animosity that many Destiny 2 players are now feeling toward the studio.

Formal presentations will be made to MLS Commissioner Don Garber and the league's Expansion Committee on December 6 in NY . Major League Soccer announced Wednesday the four final cities competing for the league's next two expansion teams.

It's all part of a four-tiered effort by Bungie to improve the Destiny 2 experience, including better rewards for advanced payers, more control over rewards, making shards useful, and providing "general quality fixes wherever possible".
