    Must really be struggling for players. I've taken a step back from it for a while.

    I probably will wait to see what Shadowkeep is like, before coming back. I kind of feel like the game went down hill somewhat from Forsaken and then Annual pass onwards. Forsaken was good, but didn't feel as immersive as the previous DLCs, and Armoury was fun, Gambit Prime really sucked, and Menangerie was only marginally better. Seasonal content also seem a bit of a contrived grind fest.

    Agreed 100%. One of my favourite things about Destiny is the lore. I liked DLCs that had story not just content to grind.

    I haven't logged in since before Crissy, but I'll be all over it come the new DLC / relaunch shortly.

    As per all of the above, I don't have time for a needless grind fest. Give me some lore and story and a moderate grind is fun, but get the balance wrong and I'm out these days. It was different when I was younger.

    Yeah the game has been pretty quiet for the past few weeks.
    Shadowkeep and the add-ons to follow do look promising though.

    Not long to go now!

    I bought Destiny 2 when Forsaken came out and while I haven't played the end game seriously, I loved the Forsaken story arc. The original story arc is so meh in comparison. Here's hoping Shadowkeep is a banger as well. I should probably join a clan or something too at some point.

    Every expansion has been power creep, gear grind, then quit whenever you're sick of it.

    Depend on which age group you fall in - it usually comes down to "i/my raid group dont have time for this grind".

    Let me know what you think of it. If any decent story and lore, new weapons or mechanics, etc, I could be tempted back.

    My mate talked me into it and it looks promising, so I've pre purchased. I'll share my thoughts soon enough.

    Trailers and viddocs look promising.
    I'm pretty keen to see where it goes.

    I've been using this quiet time in the game to masterwork yr1 exotics. So far I've done Coldheart, Crimson, Polaris Lance and sunshot. Doing Hardlight now. From what I've heard, Scout rifles are getting some nice buffs in ShadowKeep, so Polaris might actually get used!

    it does say F2P on the store page :D

    you just had to make sure all your stats are transferred over otherwise it's all lost.

    Base game came out 2 years ago and is going free-to-play AFTER the expansion launches, it will be apparently known as Destiny 2: New Light
    There is also a new $10 USD season pass "Season of the Undying" (which is also included with the paid Destiny 2: Shadowkeep expansion), similar to Fortnite and Apex F2P games, with all the microtrans to suit.

    Whole bunch of bugs officially posted on Twitter, as known and expected before launch?

    Sounds like its going to be messy.
