Weapon sunsetting in action (Destiny)

Also, not everyone will care about this, but lots of players care about their masterwork kill counters. For those players, it sucks to have to reacquire their favourite weapon, AND lose their kill count in the process. Why not just let them infuse their original up?

This is a great example of one of the most serious disconnects in Destiny right now. There are many mechanisms in the game that promote becoming invested in your gear or collecting things, while at the same time they keep making changes that make it incredibly un-fun to manage being invested in your gear or collecting.

I really get the feeling that some part of Bungie wants Destiny to become a completely transient game, where the only things that matter are the current things. But this is almost entirely incompatible with the foundation that's been previously laid of long-term connection to gear and items. The whiplash from these changes are the 1000 cuts that lead to fatigue and apathy with the game despite the fantastic gameplay and super-fun new (real not bounties) content.
