When Destiny 2 launched, there was a lot of hype behind it, and for good reasons. Bungie did create a majestic title in the original Destiny, and though it stumbled out of the gate, by the time they ended its run, it was a good title in the eyes of many fans. Thus, they looked forward to seeing what would be advanced in the sequel. But, that didn’t happen. Instead, many players view the sequel as a step backwards, as it got rid of much of the original game, and substituted it with inferior game mechanics and design.
Yet, there’s no explanation as to why Bungie did this. What were they trying to prove? Well, Redditor Gold3nSun believes he found the perfect answer. While scouring Youtube they found a comment that paints a good picture of the situation.
“”If you look at it from a sports standpoint, they basically looked at the people in Major league baseball and the people in Minor league baseball and said “how do we get it so these two divisions can play together?””
Don’t understand? Don’t worry, there’s more to it. For they continued and stated that (in this analogy), they pushed back the fence a couple hundred feet, which would limit the chances of one team getting more home runs over another. A good idea in theory, except, people like seeing home runs, and now that’s basically impossible. As for the two teams, they never saw growth as they’re either not facing worthy opponents, or aren’t fighting someone on their skill level that they can grow off of.
It’s an interesting Destiny 2 analogy for sure, and Reddit really seems to dig it (even non-baseball fans). Players noted that this does really describe what Bungie did, as they ignored the desires of the hardcore player in order to welcome in the casual player (major league and minor league).
