Weapon sunsetting in action (Destiny)

Bungie can't reasonably expect players to re-grind for the same weapons with the same perks. If the prior weapon roll can still be obtained in the "new" version of the gun, the "old" gun's cap needs to be increased to match the "new" version. Things like this make it feel like the developers don't play their own game. It's one thing to accept weapon sunsetting as a necessary evil, but implementing it like this does not move the ball forward.

It's quite simply what happens when you let metrics and data guide your game design, rather than fun and instinct.
