Poll: Satisfied with the Changes?

Published on: Sep 26, 2014 @ 14:50

In our most recent poll we asked you all if you were ready to Raid, and many of you are ready to attempt the challenge! If you tried to conquer the Vault of Glass, let us know in the comments your thoughts about it, and if you were successful or not.


Update: Patch 1.0.2

With the recent patch, and what has been announced to be coming in the near future, there’s been a lot of mixed feelings from players. If you haven’t already read the updates that are coming, click here. We’ve got a few discussions in our community forum about this topic, which I encourage you all to check out.

I’m very curious to see how you all feel about these proposed changes. Overall, are you happy with what’s coming? disappointed? Does it affect you at all? This week’s poll is all about the recent changes, and those that have been announced to be coming soon. If you’d like to expand on your choice, please feel free to sound off in the comments section below.

[divider]The following is an excerpt from a post by Reddit user kittens_anonymous, which mentions some of the changes that were listed in the Dev Notes, as well as the game overall and its current state.

In regards to progression: I did not farm the loot cave. I did not use any exploits. I did not get lucky at all with the RNG. This is one of the points of complaint that I truly do not understand. All the talk of “RNGESUS” and what not. I guess a lot of players just didn’t get it, but there is a very clear progression path.

  1. Level 1-20.
  2. Choose a Faction.
  3. Run strikes and complete bounties to steadily raise your light to 24.
  4. You should have enough reputation at this point to get legendary gear from your faction. This should pop you up to 26, if not 25.
  5. Weekly, nightfall, raid. Endgame.

To be honest, I see no issue with this, especially when you take into account my other points. I received my legendaries through reputation and the raid. I received my exotics through Xur, and beating Nightfall this week.

In regards to a lack of story: I’ll admit, this one is impossibly hard to defend. Bungie’s stories were always amazing. To see such a lack of anything here is pretty disappointing. I would assume this is why Joseph Staten left. Knowing Activision, they probably literally dumbed down the story, and put the entire budget towards gameplay and graphics. I’ve watched the story of WoW tank over the past few years, so I’m not surprised. This is an issue though. I have a feeling it will not be corrected. If there is one thing to complain about, it’s this. [divider] What do you all think of these comments by kittens_anonymous? In addition to these recent updates, how do you feel about the overall state of the game right now?

Finally, I’ll leave you with this interesting perspective from ThePwnstar4hire
