As grindy as BA may be, if that was your focus, you missed a lot of good shit.

There was more to it than going from forge to forge? I'd finished CoO/WM/Forsaken on all 3 characters and had got them all to 600. The need to keep grinding more levels as part of the DLC did my head in and the cosmetics aren't worth it. If they implemented cosmetics as in Guild Wars I'd be interested.

If there is more storyline etc I'd try forges again but TBH I can't see it being worthwhile. I didn't get past the first forge because it was a case of grind some more for higher level gear so that you can do the content. It's as bad as the  Ace of Spades shit which I'm still not over - playing crucible on Aussie ping made that shit un-doable.

I'm sick of Bungie locking stuff behind grind and PVP.

Bungie tells Activision to piss off and keeps Destiny in the process.

Considering Kotick is still a goatfucker, this is good news. They also got a cool 100 mil in fresh funding to throw at a new game, which I'm hoping is related to Marathon.
It's interesting they were able to get out of their contract a year and half or so early (was supposed to last until mid-2020). Bungie must have been costing Activision a decent chunk of money.

Rise from your motherfucking grave for one last hurrah.

Tomorrow:

- 2nd expansion launches
- PC finalizes move from Battle.net to Steam
- Game is now F2P with a Fortnite-style progression system
- Levels are gone. All new players start at 700ish Power.
- Brand new players will get the OG Destiny 1 starting story, not the D2 tower-attack-Light-loss fiasco.
- Cross-saved play is now available. You can't play cross-platform, but if you've got multiple platforms to your avail, you can access your same account and hang with your appropriate homies.
EDIT: - This seemed worthy of edit: Armor system also getting overhauled or something.

Having the base system as F2P I suspect will inject some life into the platform. I'm going to give it a stab, but I'm not buying the expac unless I get really caught up in it.

I'm sitting with all 3 classes on 750 light waiting for the expansion to release.

Chalice was a lot of fun and I finally got into playing Crucible, finishing the Ace of Spades and falling in love with hand cannons.

I'm going to miss my furnace armor though.

By and large, Forsaken was a great expansion and moving to Steam should be great. I was sick of the Blizzard launcher.

A shame they couldn't make the expansion purchases cross platform like the characters.

Eh, gives them something to shoot for with Destiny 3  why so serious?

16400 in a queue.

That's what happens when you pre-purchase the expansion. I should have realised that Bungie had no hope of handling all the free to pay players and forgot about their user base.

Back to WoW classic and Warframe for me

The launch was a shitshow. They tried to do too much at the same time.

That said, once you got in, the storyline is fucking fantastic. If you've been playing this since the first one, the echoes of your entire life as a Guardian spring out. The flexibility of the new armor is a lot better and the addition of the Vex deciding to start some shit while we're off balance is just, *chef's kiss*.

Yup - I'm slogging through the grind to 950, with 2 guardians sitting at 920+

I must admit I am rolling as much Black Armory armor as I can - I like the aesthetic and the energy rolls seem pretty good so far.

I really like the artifact leveling and also the rewards (I'm on a season pass).

I'm in my Destiny phase of "Warframe or Destiny", I'm sure it will swing back as I hate the PvP of both but it's more intrusive in Destiny.

RIP PoE and WoW classic.

I too have been enjoying this more and more over the past couple weeks. Didn't get Shadowkeep or the season pass yet, but there's so much to do with the New Light F2P I don't feel like I'm missing out. I might go all in come next season.

Oh, hey, new content roadmap.

https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/49189

tl;dr: Fuck Destiny 3, here's three more DLC expansions for the next three years. Also, we're cycling old content, so if you didn't play D1, you'll get a chance, and if you haven't played D2 year 1 yet, DO IT NOW.

The content cycling is kinda wild, almost half to zones are going to be archived for some time. I like that they're apparently focused on making a Destiny living world instead of launching a new game every few years.

The one major thing that would make them AWESOME would be to make expansions populate cross platform, so I can play on PC in my den and PS4 in the living room without buying xpacs twice.

They're not quite doing that but if you cycle up generations on the same platform (PS4-PS5, for example) your account goes with it, along with any expansions you bought.

Beyond Light was pushed back to mid November, ostensibly because working from home for everyone makes shit weirder.

It's also, conveniently, right around the PS5's projected launch date.

I'm not particularly mad at them for the move. I was just hoping I'd get a week or two of the newest expansion in before America collapsed.

Also if you have Xbox Game Pass, Destiny 2 is going to be on there next month with the expansions and will also be getting the new expansion when it launches on there. XGP is a pretty good deal to begin with and at the online event they had recently they announced that every game they showed off there was coming to XGP whenever each game launches. I've been having a pretty good time with XGP on the PC so that might be your best way to get access to the expansions on your PC, and then also maybe buy them on your PS4 if you need.
