    As per our previous conversation, I’m pretty much where you are too. I did finish the story, and I even did the grinding/Daily Mission stuff for a bit, but I’m definitely at a “meh!” point with it all now.

    I s’pose I’m one of those people who’s currently complaining about how broken it is, but given the DZ’s now all that’s really left for me to do, that whole ‘downed in one shot’ thing is quite frustrating! I mean, I like a challenge as much as the next guy, but I’m not a masochist….

      I’m hopeful that things will get sorted and it will get better, but right now I just feel no real desire to play it and that makes me a little bit sad.

  2. I stopped playing destiny for a few months, around about the time of the taken king. I just felt burnt out on it all, as fun as it was, it was all starting to feel like a bit too much of a grind, with too many bars to try and fill all for a very small stat buff.
    I was scrolling though my list of games, looking from a bit of a break from playing trackmania turbo (which, by the way is a great racer), and figured I’d give Destiny another crack.
    After a quick patch and update, I was back in. I picked up with my level 30 character, which is quite a way behind the current level cap, but I figured that would give me a chance to find my feet and remember how all my stats work.
    I have to say, dropping into some patrol missions, I was a little bit disheartened to find that all of my year one rare gear was easily being outclassed by literally everything else I was picking up. Not that any of this really matters as most enemies you encounter can be taken down with a few well placed shots regardless of what gear you have, which reminded me of why I used to enjoy playing Destiny. You can treat it like a complete throwaway shooter and the mechanics are rock solid. I was also reminded of what made destiny great when another random player ran into a gunfight I was struggling with, helped me clear the room, gave me a thumbs up and bounced off on their way.
    I’m still somewhat baffled as to how Destiny managed to make such a great game, and then slowly tried to make all the gaming mechanics more and more complicated, still with zero explanation or tutorial on how to improve your stats, but for now, I’ve been enjoying the game for what it is.
