THAB—Content Vault Edition (Destiny)

I don't think this is true. Too much shallow, uninteresting, or repetitive content makes it stale. Perhaps Bungie has simply run out of ideas for Destiny, or stretched it for far too long.

I think what's actually most frustrating for me about this is that there are things that are being Vaulted that are not stale - they just aren't very useful because of the increasingly complex gear-transience systems Bungie has layered on top of the game as it's progressed. The Menagerie (essentially a matchmade raid-lite experience) is being Vaulted even though it fills a niche no other content in Destiny does. It was universally praised when released, and pointed to as a the high bar for seasonal content, but nothing Bungie has done since then has tried to replicate that achievement. It seems like a content that could easily be expanded on (a new encounter or 2) and updated to be relevant (replace the gear drops), but instead it's being removed after only a year without any apparent replacement.

So you're telling me the investment system is what's having a negative impact here? Oh wow, who could have imagined that! :-p
