Weapon sunsetting in action (Destiny)

Not gonna lie, I would not want to be a software engineer on a large online game. You are always pissing someone off.

I don't envy the teams working on games like these. Reddit blew up because of the change to sprint and is having a collective aneurysm. I want the change reverted but I can appreciate how it could've gone unnoticed as a bug. On the other hand, sunsetting "old" weapons with identical "new" versions is an intentional design choice and it's stupid.


While I agree it's dumb, it was probably a byproduct of the overall choice of sunsetting. They probably couldn't have it two different ways so they just had to choose this was for an overall benefit. I get why it would piss people off, but at the same time it's only pissing off a small percentage of the community from what I can see so far. Community does not equal overly vocal people...
