To add overall. (Destiny)

I know I sound overly judgmental most of the time. I’ve accepted that they’re making a game I don’t particularly like anymore. And that’s fine. I wish it was different but it’s fine.

I have a very hard time believing they’re allocating resources intelligently based on the content we’ve seen over the last two years though. I miss the ambition of old Bungie. Maybe that’s not fair, I don’t know.

I'm just not saying either way. Yes, I feel they have lost a bit of a spark as well. But I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for a first time chance at something. If they never learn from this experience with future live events then feel free to call me out :-)

They don’t have to give me perfection, but I need to see something interesting. They can talk about all the technical challenges they want, this event still wasn’t impressive on a moment to moment level, no matter how difficult it was to pull off. If it leads to something amazing, I’ll concede, but I’m not sure sharing live skyboxes across different bubbles even measures as a blip on the radar for “cool” stuff I’d like to see out of the game.

I share your frustration with the moment to moment enjoyment. But I also think that if they hadn't had the technical issues and the timing was a little better then it would have been amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience apart from that.

I genuinely hope they’re working towards something incredible. I just don’t see it.
