News like this just keeps pushing consumers away. I have other things I can spend my Gaming money on, as we all do.

I received a free copy of this game with my 1080Ti but still haven't played it. Articles like this and all the bad things I heard from friends about the 1st game are keeping me from even bothering to try it. Oh well, back to Pokemon on my 3DS. At least the 1080Ti is making me a little money mining while I'm not playing games on it.

All of these schemes are going to be scrutinized from now on and developers and publishers will soon have to be transparent about them.

This makes sense as a casual gameplay scenario... its well within the dev's rights to do this kind of thing.

Unpopular maybe, but seriously: xp is "your character learning"... go memorize a spanish bible in 1 hour and get back to me.

I mean it is published by Activision the company with that manipulation patent. This game along with Overwatch and any game they have a hand in is ripe for the picking to even have profiled lootboxes bough with money for fixed odds so this isn’t surprising at all not what happend with destiny 1.

they also lied about Xûr's offerings being random pregenerated under their control back in D1

edit: source 1 -- "Bungie has explicitly and repeatedly claimed that Xûr’s stock is both random and out of their control."

still looking for something directly from Bungie...

edit 2: source 2 is Deej on Bungie's forum -- "we can't reach out and stock his shelves ourselves."

If Megamanexe4 is right and Bungie has been able to alter Xûr’s stock all along, then they’ve either been lying to Destiny’s community or at least intentionally misleading them

Xur is randomized. There are times when we can pull off miracles like making him stay in the Tower longer when Christmas is cancelled, but his inventory is governed by the same chaos that influences all the loot drops

Yup, this game is staying off my list, no matter how interesting it might be.

I miss when Bungie was actually a decent company that made GOOD games.

You know what?
This is good.
This is Great!

We need more angry gamers. I don't mean that hardcore gamers should spend "even more time" whining and complaining, but getting casuals to care is going to take a landslide event. We need this thing to hit critical mass and actually see tens of millions of gamers avoiding products that don't conform to Fair Play practices. Battlefront II is a good start but we're not there yet.
As successful as CD Project RED was with TW3, they should sell Ten Times more copies of Cyberpunk (if it's good, etc...).
Good developers who respect the gamer need to become the pillars of the industry, and the mainstream aren't aware enough yet to make that happen.

I know in the long term it's just a cycle: Small company does good work. Small company becomes big company. Big company gets bought out or sells out. Big company becomes evil.

But at least right now it's time for a changing of the guard. Hopefully Activision and EA will go the way of THQ in the not too distant future.

@tpi2007 You should add this to the first post:

Effective immediately, we are deactivating this system. As a result, players will see XP earn rates change for all activities across the board, but with all values being displayed consistently in the user interface.

Edit: added more to quote.

Ah, that's why I wasn't noticing any ill effect; I was mostly in the Crucible to begin with. Either way, good change, though the fact that it only really affected Bright engrams wasn't filling me with rage. Got all my cosmetics from the faction rally anyway.
