Probably should read ALL replies before jumping in, but... (Destiny)

I'm confused again. There's talk of people cheesing their ways to thousands of cores. Is that innacruate? If people really were generating 5,000+ enhancement cores, would that lessen your anger?

Yes, you're confused. Yes, this current glitch let a small subset of people generate thousands of cores. This glitch is the result of Bungie trying to fix the fact that if you picked up Pinnacle quests on all the characters, you could get three copies of every gun, which you could then dismantle for cores (at a whopping 7 per gun!). So instead of letting people get a small pittance of extra cores, Bungie created a situation in which an even smaller subset of players could get thousands.

I agree, Bungie should have left it alone. But I disagree that they should have done nothing once the larger exploit did occur. I think Bungie should attempt to fix every exploit as quickly as possible, no matter if it's gameplay breaking like the infinite Shadowshot or Monty Python emote, or economy breaking like this current one.

As usual, I'm all for banning players who willing exploit the game. If all this was over an additional 14 cores, then yeah, Bungie overreacted. If people really were getting over 2,000 cores, then I am glad Bungie cut things off for less than a week to solve things:

Why? What did that person having 12,000 cores do to you?

Because I don't like people who cheese or cheat.

If I'd have been able to do this glitch, I'd have done it for as long as possible to accumulate as many cores as possible so that I could ignore that whole stupid mechanic going forward.

I'm all for Bungie eliminating the gameplay loop where I never have enough of X to infuse the Y I had to hope dropped from a limited supply of Powerful Engrams. Playing Destiny should be about playing Destiny. At the same time, if the economy or grind gets to be too bad, I'd rather play something else until it gets better than be one of the few who are lucky enough to circumvent the rules while the rest of the player base has to suffer under them.
