D1 vets especially will know the original struggles and gripes with sending gear out to pasture. Enough people are talking about that topic by itself, so I'm here to say something different.
The game feels like it's forcing focus more on gear and loadouts than what's actually going on in the world of the game.
Don't get me wrong, the Saint-14 missions, the Shadowkeep stuff… I thought that was great. The concept of the Sundial? Awesome. I really enjoyed the fact that it was Menagerie-esque with a story (loosely) tied to the previous season.
Has it been nice to get a boatload of gear season over season? Absolutely. Have I used all of it? No, I've got Vex Offensive guns in my vault that I've never squeezed the trigger for even once. Much of the deeper lore, the stories we've been presented with that has been unresolved, has been on the back-burner for a *REALLY* long time now. Deep Stone Crypt? Revived Uldren? The Curse on the Dreaming City?
How much more of this game is only going to be talked about in lore books while the seasons are spent doing a singular activity for gear when the meat and potatoes is happening elsewhere?
I understand Destiny is one of, if not THE looter-shooter to a lot of people. I'm a die-hard addict and avid fan of this game and have been since Destiny 1. However, when did Destiny go from a story-based shooter with MMO elements to a month to month get-a-new-gun gacha simulator? We're told we're able to build our "perfect monster killing machine", but the thing is, we've… already done that. Many times over.
We've been getting cool mods. Guns. Cosmetics. Season over season, new stuff. It's stuck for some, not others.
Now, when do we get to kill the *REAL* monsters out there with the loadouts we've perfected over time? When are we going to contribute to the evolving world in an impactful, meaningful way?
Because rather than killing those monsters, I feel like I'm constantly having to improve my gear just to improve it again. And again. And again. And now, with the forced "need" to get new gear, I'm gonna have to do that even more. Makes all that time spent feel wasted and pointless, especially in regards to armor–all the mats and random rolled gear to finally get a decent build, just to have to try and do it all over again.
I'm not looking for a gear grind with a story in the background. Destiny, for me, has always been about the story, and I want to see that story live and breathe again. I don't want to farm gear for hours on end with the only story being a weekly text blurb or tweet that barely tells us how things are actually changing.
