This week we unpack the Bungie Dev Update. After the long winter break hiatus Bungie returns to detail the next steps they have planned for Destiny 2. It seems by the time we reach Fall 2018 a lot of positive changes will arrive. But the players have to ask themselves, is it too little too late? Most of these features returning are elements that existed in Destiny 1. Its going to be a long road just to get back to Destiny 1 standards. However these are the steps necessary to improve the game. Should Bungie have adopted an all hands on deck approach, was that even possible in the first place? Thanks for listening and have a great week guardians!
Is Crimson Days returning? Items in the database now show the small crimson days emblem, will this old valentines day event make a return? Bungie returns from their Holiday break, the community eagerly anticipates to hear what they have to say. The future of the franchise hangs in a balance and the next 2-3 months will be very indicative as to what the next few years have in store for the game, its player base, and the success of Destiny long term. Best of luck to Bungie, here’s to hoping that they can come up with some solid solutions quickly to the problems plaguing Destiny 2. Thanks for listening. https://destinytheshow.com/
This week we talk about how Destiny 2 needs a complete makeover akin to The Taken King & Age of Triumph during Destiny 1. Eververse costs skyrocket as community creators tabulate how much real world money it would cost a user to acquire all the items in the Eververse, simply put it is absurd how expensive these items are. The PlayStation Network showed a page detailing the alleged specifics regarding Destiny 2’s second expansion Gods of Mars. Will this release in March as the listing suggests and what does Bungie need to do between now and then to fix Destiny 2? Thanks for listening!
Eververse frustrations grow as the Dawning winter event delivers 50,000 silver dust worth of items just two weeks after Curse of Osiris placed 100 new items into the Eververse store. The community pushback has been swift regarding the negative effect Eververse is demonstrating on Destiny 2. Christopher Barrett of Bungie delivers some promising news though in regards to solid changes coming in 2018. Time will tell how the rest of Destiny 2 pans out but one thing is certain, if it continues in the direction of eververse priority than engagement will continue to fall. Thanks for listening
The Dawning returns to Destiny for the 3rd time and brings with it Snowball Fights, Mayhem Crucible, and lots of Eververse loot boxes… Just weeks after the release of Curse of Osiris which already brought 100 items into eververse, we have yet another micro transaction fueled event. However this time you can purchase the armor you want outright with bright dust. Throw snowballs in strikes to stun and damage enemies or hop into Crucible to experience mayhem for the first time in Destiny 2 PvP. It does leave us wondering though, how long until we get rumble and playlist selection back into the game? Thanks for an amazing 2017 and for supporting DTS throughout the year. Have a great holiday and a fun week throwing snowballs.
Bungie Update On Prestige Activities & how Bungie plans on fixing the vanilla locked content. We detail our Curse of Osiris feedback and anticipate Update 22.214.171.124 which brings with it masterworks weapons, quality of life changes, a nerf to the Prometheus Lens, and Bungie’s new activity changes regarding prestige and seasonal activities. The Infinite Forest dances with massive potential but unfortunately misses the mark. However some small changes could make the Infinite Forest a great endless Horde Mode if executed properly. Thanks for listening!
The State of Destiny 2 Bungie blog post revealed a great deal about the future plans for Destiny 2 and acknowledged the poor communication Bungie has displayed since release. Are the changes outlined however enough to satisfy the community or are we just seeing a parade of old Destiny 1 features being brought back into Destiny 2? Ranked PvP is coming 2018 which was the biggest announcement out of the bunch. We’ll go over the Bungie podcast, the new Destiny 2 Free trial, how to get the mentor of light emblem, the release of Curse of Osiris, required hard drive space for the expansion and more. We have 3 new Destiny The Show clans, we heard your requests and have created new clans to help continue to grow and expand. Thanks for listening, have a great week!
This week we talk about Bungie caught throttling XP gains in Destiny 2, in response Bungie has removed the XP cooldown but in the process has really slowed down acquisition of Bright Engrams. The community reaction has been strongly negative as it seems like Bungie only addressed the situation after getting caught. Additionally we talk about the Crucible Radio developer interview with Jon Weisnewski and Claude Jerome which gives clear insight into the segmented nature of Bungie development. We learn about the intentionality behind the decisions regarding fixed roll weapons, more simplistic class perk tress, and the decision to go 4v4 across the board. Thanks for listening and have a great week!
Can Raid Lairs actually work in Destiny 2 or will this end up being another Crota's End, a very short raid more like a strike. The first Curse of Osiris reveal stream has concluded and things are looking alright, but it's hard not to get Dark Below vibes when IGN and PC Gamer have discussed the campaign length being only around 2-3 hours. The biggest question we have is what main quality of life changes are arriving in Season 2 and can the live team do enough to bring back the sea of lapsed players?
This week we discuss the new reset time which has North American content creators excited. More details on the first Clarion Call of Destiny 2 that will allow you to grind up some more XP before Season 2 arrives. ME Chung from the social team gives an update on Guided Games and social features, most notably guided games will finally be available to full clans. The Curse of Osiris reveal streams begin this week. An Italian IGN interview sheds further light on the Infinite Forest, Mercury Social Space, and new patrol activity. Thanks for listening
