Reimagining "competitive" Destiny (Destiny)

I think it might be interesting to change the rule of Supers for this new Competitive/Trials mode. Instead of “most players only get one Super per game” maybe it would be better to make it official. You get 1 Super per game. On top of that, just give that Super to players at the beginning. Leave it up players when best to use their Super.

I think that would be a cool experiment, at the very least. You get one Super for the whole match--use it immediately to get a good lead, or save it for later so you can make the clutch play on the brink of defeat. It would be really interesting.

I understand where Cruel is coming from. There is always the strategy of when and how to use your Super. But they come so frequently (especially when you start chaining) that it almost isn't a consideration anymore.

I also see where you're coming from. Not every single moment has to be exactly even and fair. But I do think it's swung way to far in the "bullshit" direction. Activating a Super should be a power play, and it should give you and advantage. However, I do think that there should be some consideration behind activating a Super, rather it's current form of being an instant "I win!" button. Damage reduction while in Super needs to be pretty drastically lowered--some classes are damn near invulnerable in their activation animation, and that's the opposite of how it should be. Activating your super should be a brief moment of weakness before your power kicks in, so that it negates the panic activation that can save a player from certain death. It should have to be at least slightly strategic.
