Opinion: This is why we can’t have nice things (Destiny 2: Forsaken – Revelry Event)

I have a question for you. If Bungie creates a horde-like unlimited mode in Destiny 2 would you…

  • A: Play the mode as intended, kill enemies, and try to get the highest level?
  • B: Speedrun and only kill majors?
  • C: Complain that this isn’t exactly a horde mode and call it trash?

I’m only asking because B and C are the most common things that I have run into while playing the Revelry Event. Not that there is anything wrong with speed running. It’s fun to test your fireteams limits. But, I have been getting mixed reviews.

I’ve played the Verdant Forest and my main objective was to optimize my clearing power while moving as fast as possible. But, I had a jarring experience with a teammate on Tuesday.

I logged in and hopped in a fireteam with my group. After running through 40 levels we ran out of time and warped to the 5 bosses. We went back to the tower, picked up bounties from Eva Levante and my friend literally says, “I’m tired of this mode already, let’s run strikes.”

Why can’t we have nice things?

You want to stop playing the new content and go back to playing the vanilla content that you complained about when there was no new content, and now that you have that new content you find old content better?

He wanted to stop because he didn’t want to grind for “no reason”.

It just started on Tuesday and trust me if it was bad, I wouldn’t lie about it. But, even if it’s not mobs and mobs of enemies attacking you in the re-imagined Infinite Forest, it’s still an activity with new triumphs attached.R

I recently wrote about Destiny being in a good place. I still believe that.

Opinion: Destiny 2 is in a great place

The content is literally 2 days old at the time of this writing and I just wish we could enjoy the content without the salt. Destiny 2 still has so many other activities to do. Plus, a new exotic to grind for. Why dog out the content? It’s meant to be an add-on to the other options available. Plus, it’s a free update and the Verdant (infinite) Forest is pretty close to an unlimited horde mode.

I am hoping for a genuine response. How do you feel about the Revelry Event?
