The soft cap is bad system. (Criticism)

I've been feeling it for a bit now, but the new Black Spindle mission really highlights it.

It effectively locks people out of content because they haven't played the game enough. I'll have to do a few more weeks of raids to get to to the appropriate level for the mission. Getting to the Spire of Stars was the same way. I'm skilled enough to do these things as a player, but Bungie just decides I haven't played the game enough to be able to do so.

I mean, I'm 368 Light on Xbox, and I was able to make it to the last room in the Spindle mission, which is 380, so the level difference still isn't THAT bad, but what they need to completely get rid of is the Immunity if you're below a certain threshold. Sure, kill us in two shots, but let us contribute SOMETHING.
