Dude, you're supposed to switch to your sockpuppet before you quote yourself.



The OP keeps racking in views, likes and attention because of shitposters like you. Congratulations!
I just hit reply on my own quote, figuring anyone not trying to troll could follow along but that's fine, completely ignore the fact I disproved your garbage argument that Bungie is desperately trying to draw players back to the game because of low engagement. Destiny has dominated the looter shooter genre and 'fake news' shitposters like yourself will take any opportunity to muddy the waters.

Meanwhile, the pros and cons of the latest expansion remain undiscussed (usually, the latest expansion is a top-charting thread of its own, even on GAF) which I guess was your mission. So, congrats.

As usual like your fellow trolls you are quick to burrow the not so glamorous history of Destiny 2.

It wasn't that long ago that they removed trials because it was trivial to figure out how much people was playing and the Reddit had weekly threads about how this was the lowest population ever playing trials and of course that echoed all over the internet. People also complained about long matchmaking times and so on, the obvious mark of a dying community.

Bulking up the matchmaking queues with the f2p players protects them from future content droughts/fuckups and is one of the major considerations why some games enable a limited f2p model.

Which doesn't matter because you are fundamentally misrepresenting my argument since I never said they need to attract people, I only said they get to pad the matchmaking queues. Because you're arguing in bad faith.

BTW, you're all having so much fun playing the game that this thread is outpacing the Destiny OT. You'd rather shitpost here than talk about Destiny 2. But I understand you: I'd do the same if I just paid 35 bucks for recycled content from 2015.

Matchmaking was fine for me even before New Light. Maybe on the Competitive playlist because the game modes arent that great. Not sure what you're experiencing,or is it conjecture from your Google research?

Btw,we are talking about D2, to point out how much of a mistake your posts have been and its misinforming people out there.

So you can play the original campaign for free if you just fancy a quick single player experience for no money?

You don't get forsaken and its seasonal content, you don't get shadowkeep.
So... Basically... You would have preferred to pay Shadowkeep $60/70 with Forsaken included in it instead of having to pay $30 "à la carte" each expansion which is by the way stand-alone? I don't know where you went the last decade but any (lite)MMO including its old expansions into the new one cost full price (considering you're not paying an abonnement).

So essentially playing destiny costs the same as it costed before: 60 bucks a year if you want to play the latest content
Err... This has always been the case with (lite)MMOs. Except that playing the beginning of the game is now F2P. Expansions are mostly stories arc with their themed exclusives gears/activities. Every other gameplay mechanics/classics activities are available to everyone, even F2P players.

About the Battle Pass/MTx, I'm right with you. Not a fan at all. But then again nothing new, never seen a free battle pass.

"conjecture from your Google research" my ass.

The point is, one of the main reasons companies go f2p is to maintain a viable population of players. If I was a destiny player, I'd worry why Bungie thinks they have to do this.

Warframe holds no content back from players and doesn't demand a ransom for whatever the latest bit of geometry they added to the game. Which is the point: it's a f2p game. Destiny 2 is designed with the same trappings as an f2p game and the same extensive cash shop.

No it's not and has never been true since Warframe released in 2013. All missions, quests, maps, it's all free. As it should, it's f2p. Including the battle pass, it's also free.

You're using player numbers for Trials which isn't even part of the game any more.
I said: It wasn't that long ago that they removed trials because it was trivial to figure out how much people was playing and the Reddit had weekly threads about how this was the lowest population ever playing trials

To what your fellow whiteknight replied: s it conjecture from your Google research

As expected, once the receipts are shown you move your goalposts. The Destiny team has experience seeing their game crater and protecting it from future such events is important to them. While apparently innocuous, this message was enough to make you mouthbreathers go into a fit of frenzy.

And the reason it no longer is in the game, no matter what they tell you and what you want to believe, is that the word "Trials" was on top of every newsbit covering the crashing catastrophe that was Y1 because it allowed people to track population.

By the way, I have more likes than Dthomp Dthomp does in the game's current OT. All thanks to your attention. And until you learn to tolerate that there's people who don't like the game you like, this thread will continue onwards being more succesful than Destiny's own OT.

As I said it before, this should've been a one page "guy doesn't like a thing thread". Now it's the most visible, most active Destiny thread in this website. If you care about Destiny's perception in this community, good fucking job man, good fucking job.

From what I'm hearing shadowkeep is a scam. Basically a really short incomplete campaign and a raid for $35.
I didn't actually wanted to bring this up because my beef is with the cynical f2p they designed, but that's nothing new. Actual content delivered vs money spent has always been a point of contention raised against the game and the team behind it. I'd say at this point the new zone blatant recycle is worth talking about, but until more content gets unearthed we can't really call it a rip off yet. Yet.

Trials is for ultra sweaty players and it didn't work the same as in D1, the level of problems forced to remove and reconsider it. So it's an odd mode to focus on.

Trials is how the Destiny debacle become a public humiliation, the format allowed the tracking to happen. It became the showcase for their failure and that's why they killed it.

And besides your weak excuses, it's been highly requested by the player base. You can Google it yourself.

But again you're the guy who knew half the new expansion was recycled and still bought it so I'd say you have around what, 6 or 8 years of training lying to yourself and making excuses for Bungie whenever you hit that buy button again every year.

My post gets more views than the destiny OT. Everytime someone checks the gaming forum what they see is the sentence "Destiny f2p is a scam". But you're too invested in the franchise to even tolerate criticisms and here you are, bumping my thread with drive by's.

Trials is a separate piece of content that always existed for the more hardcore players. Similar to Raids, which btw something like only 6% of Destiny players ever complete a raid, so judging player counts on modes for the most hardcore players to show the game is in decline might not be totally honest.

There are players who want it back, as you yourself displayed it got hundreds of thousands of participants, that's just not that large a number in the grand scheme of the game.

I'm not sure what you mean by I'm THE guy, we all knew they were returning to the Moon and they directly told us it was going to re-use areas we'd been to in D1. Most of us have been aching for D1 areas to return if it means spending 35 dollars many of us are fine with that, critiquing others for what they consider a worthwhile expenditure of their money is kinda nonsensical, what does it affect you?

Oh, so since I pointed out your post has less likes you're resorting to how many VIEWS it gets now? That's an interesting shifting of the goal post you're doing. Negativity always generates more clicks, it's where the term clickbait comes from, nothing to brag about.

That proves nothing at all.
Just because a seasonal mode is less or more played than others in determined period?

Show us the number os players in Destiny 2 first...
You don't analise number of players decrease or increase looking only a mode in a game rotative in content like Destiny.

How many lies you will try to create yet?

Why do gamers not understand the f2p model? There is an invisible 'but' after f2p. All other content costs cash, which you obviously dont have.

So you're basically saying you want everything for free. Yup. Sounds like a gamer.

And it's not a scam. If you wish to play this game go ahead. It's free. If you like the game, there is other content you can invest in if you feel you want to further your experience.

You're quoting participation percentages in one activity and talking as if they're the same as in a different activity. That mightwork on the hugbox OT but won't fly here. For anyone that isn't a deranged destiny fan, those numbers paint a bleak picture. So much so, that Bungie killed trials.

Do you want me to post here the youtube links of Y1 destiny staff being all sad and humble acknowledging they fucked up? Or did your ravaged mind erase those memories in a fit of fanaboyism?

It paints a picture of someone who's so knee deep in a franchise he's been told he's about to be suckered and he's gladly taking it in. Let me be clear: people laugh at destiny players.

Ok, here's how it works... if there's a post that they find funny, people drop a smiley face. I can show you examples on this forum. And the triggered emoji is a sarcastical emoji being used when something is going to trigger somebody. And they're right, you got damned triggered by my post. Six pages in and you're still attempting to shut down criticism of your toy. You really think Neogaf of all places has a legit triggered emote? Neogaf?

You're making an interpretation of emojis to suit your personal narrative that Destiny isn't a fraud worth paying money for. But I understand that you can't cope with the fact that the thread proudly shouting that Destiny is a scam is the most popular Destiny thread in Neogaf.

That proves nothing at all.

You're the guy who managed to quote me twice about euro psn issues and attempted to pass a us psn link as a solution. I don't think you're capable of looking at numbers and actually extract conclusions.

Those numbers prove that Destiny suffered a catastrophical drop in playerbase. And the proof is that over similar timelines the previous year, Destiny 1 trials population was booming. Which it was calculated using the same method.

They went from 1.000.000 participants to 50.000. That's a 20 times drop in engagement.

Let's face facts, you're not going to acknowledge the truth since you're arguing in bad faith to shut down a discussion that you dislike. But the fact is, Bungie DEMOLISHED the gameplay design of launch destiny 2 in order to attempt to get back on their feet.

How about you feel ashamed about being incapable of facing the reality of Destiny 2 first year:


With a dwindling playerbase, Bungie had to respond with videos like these:


And over a series of videos they detailed their plan to destroy and discard most of the gameplay design of Destiny 2 as it launched in order to attempt to salvage the game from shutting down before the year 2 expansion hit.

That actually happened and here you are, in bad faith, pretending all of this never happened, just to attempt to shut down someone who's saying things you don't like. You are miserable.

And while you pretend that you don't use the laugh emoji as it is being used by everyone including you, here's some examples from this forum:


How long are you going to attempt to deny things that actually happened just to keep up the facade that the first year of Destiny 2 was nothing but an unmitigated disaster and you're posting to derail the thread so people cannot be allowed to say that they don't like Destiny 2?

Seriously, you're just going to spin another shitpost or are you going to address the facts presented?

D2 launch was bad not because the game was bad but because Bungie took a path with The Taken King that culminate what we got in Destiny 2. That path were praised by non-Destiny players and press in general.

Bungie believed they were so my what their player base wanted.

But anybody that played the game constantly knows Destiny The Taken King push the casual media to be happy about Destiny loosing in the process all the appeal the game have for constant play.

The Taken King was the first big change where Bungie hearing the haters like you did a step forward but several backwards... and it give birth to Destiny 2 like it was.

Now Bungie finally faced how wrong they were to hear you and is trying to back what Destiny was before The Take King.

It is possible that Shadowkeep is one pair or even better than Destiny Year 1... I need more time to have an accurate view.

Bungie nailed again.

And I can only congrats that Bungie finally created a purchase model where everybody can play Destiny together and buy the yearly expansion at reasonable price to support that amazing game going futter.

The F2P + current paid expansion should be like that since Destiny original with no Destiny 2 but incremental yearly updates.

We should be at Destiny 5.0 now instead to have two games forced by Activision business model.

Your hate thread won't made Destiny bad anymore... Bungie is not thar company anymore ;)

You mean like making level up progress bars that straight up lied about the actual xp gained? Was that something that was a result from Taken King?

You address the facts of D2 Y1, shitposter.

Wait, destiny 2 didn't get better after Bungies freedom from Activisions greasy palms?
Just starting 2 and it seems like pretty much the same game except even more cobbled together. I don't get the love for the movement or gunplay myself, everything seems so slow and fov is balls.

Gfx are bad, music is inferior to d1. there are 42 different currency systems...neverending treadmill loot grind...micro-transactions...story is a mess..yet it is one of the most popular games ever.

I am out of touch 100%.

I actually liked the movement and gunplay of the first game, even if it was on the slow side.

Second game feels stiffer somehow. Hard to explain.

Guess what, Bungie thinks it is needed why do you think the game is offering a f2p trial? Perhaps they're planning a gap year. I don't know, I don't care. But since you want to pretend the disaster never happened...


"conjecture from your Google research" my ass.

The point is, one of the main reasons companies go f2p is to maintain a viable population of players. If I was a destiny player, I'd worry why Bungie thinks they have to do this.



Warframe holds no content back from players and doesn't demand a ransom for whatever the latest bit of geometry they added to the game. Which is the point: it's a f2p game. Destiny 2 is designed with the same trappings as an f2p game and the same extensive cash shop.



No it's not and has never been true since Warframe released in 2013. All missions, quests, maps, it's all free. As it should, it's f2p. Including the battle pass, it's also free.
I even deliberately stated in my post that the Competitive playlist had a real population problems because people don't like those modes. Trials, from the Reddit post that was 1 YEAR AGO, which is not even a thing anymore at the moment, is part of competitive. Hence your post literally is a copy paste of what I stated, which adds nothing to your argument really. And Destiny is NOT a PVP only game.

And way to go pulling up history posts about Destiny 2. Anyone at this point knows Destiny 2 started as a failure in comparison to Destiny 1, and Bungie has been doing better as they progress. Sure there are times when they stumble, but the current state of the game, the content that New Light offers, is a way improved version of Destiny 2. Nobody is denying the troubled development of Destiny 2. Its everywhere man. The majority of us are talking about the game state now, not some reddit post or article that was posted in 2017?? WTF man, I'd be happy to have a discussion with you but you're just crying inaccurate things now. I'm done, this post is stupid, and I think by now people see that.

You judge the effectiveness of a post with the amount of by the amount of LIKES? And not by what is actually being discussed in the actual thread? Now you're just sad. Have fun being angry, or whatever.

The people blindly defending bungie are just shilling hard. You are giving them too much attention but you also baited them with your sensationalist title and thread. I think there was a better way to convey your frustration here.

I actually liked the movement and gunplay of the first game, even if it was on the slow side.

Second game feels stiffer somehow. Hard to explain.
I remember liking it too, but I tried playing d1 opening this week and it feels like a cross gen ps3 game for sure, so not what i would call good.

D2 does feel worse tho, i agree with that.

Why are you basing numbers of player engagement on trials? Trials in D2 sucked and they knew it and thats why they got rid of it. It wasn't that the rest of the game sucked, but they went from a tight 3v3 system to changing it up and only having 1 map and it being some shitty 4v4 with changes to the weapons and everything.

So they removed it because nobody liked playing that mode specifically. Plenty of people play iron banner and comp/casual.

So, it works like this:

As a f2p player you have access to the base game campaign (which they already gave out for free through psn plus and the battlenet launcher) and the curse of osiris and warmind campaigns. These two pieces of content are they only actual bits of new content they gave out for free.

You don't get forsaken and its seasonal content, you don't get shadowkeep.

And of course you have to pay for the battle pass.

So essentially playing destiny costs the same as it costed before: 60 bucks a year if you want to play the latest content, and if you didnt buy their stuff the year before, you have to buy last year's content drop (which is now possibly obsolete) on top of this years. Unbelievable.

This is unbelievable scummy from Bungie. They haven't really gone f2p at all. Current standards for f2p games means you get EVERYTHING for free except the battle pass and the mtx.

And I can't even buy forsaken, apparently because I got the psn plus freebie they gave out. Which means I would have to track down a physical copy, possibly. Which means getting out of the f2p cage and unlock everything is going to cost me around 90 bucks, I guess. If i were so inclined. 90 bucks! Free to play my ass.
Would you like some cheese to go with your whine?

After buying Destiny and it’s season pass, I knew D2 would be just as bad. I would say buying D2 and it’s last 2 years of junk are even a bigger scam.

Now with the new content they want you to skip the old junk content promising that this new stuff will be better, (I don’t think it will)

When people LOL at a post with no humor in it they're laughing AT YOU. I equally tag triggered when I feel the poster making a post is triggered as well as when I want to jokingly say the post "triggered" me, like someone saying Super Metroid isn't the pinnacle of amazing game. You can't spin all reactions to be positive reactions and even then you lied about having more likes!

I’ve never played either Destiny. Will I be scammed if I download this version?
No.

You're getting a ton of content to sift through and when you eventually hit the pay wall, you'll explicitly know if you want to pay for the rest. I'm talking potentially hundreds of hours of playtime for free if you choose.

Although, apparently stay away from some aspects of PVP. There's reports of a lot of people there being fairly territorial.

Edit: I'm basing my last statement from this thread on reddit:

I always cringe my ass off whenever I see the Destiny community referring to one another as "Guardians"
Right?

I have a particular dislike of the Destiny franchise and it especially extends to the blind fandom.

However, I appreciate and understand that someone may be interested and wants to explore what is there for free. And there is so much there for free if anyone thinks that they don't have a good idea if they should buy the new content after all the free stuff, then I can't help them and in fact I have some lucrative opportunities that they may be interested in. It's just a "small" buy in.
