+1 & 2¢ (Destiny)

It recently came to light that a member of DBO didn't know much about Champions, in part due to the mod system requirement. Before this, I would have expected that all of us who at least post here (as I have recently seen some new names in the clan that I don't yet recognize,) would understand the ins and outs of this game. I can only imagine how "Destiny the Game" at this point may feel to someone who really is coming into the game alone. That hill outside the wall may be more or less the same, but it sure is different now, yeah? (Which also compounds into the above observation.)

This problem could be fixed by better tutorialization and information access. Genshin Impact, a game that came out in September, has already implemented an archive system (that wasn't available at launch) where, among other pieces of information, tutorials can be reaccessed. Champions, while introduced in an alright fashion in the season they were introduced, were never given context again.

IMO, Bungie leans way too heavily on its community to do the heavy lifting. Then again, I feel that Bungie primarily designs Destiny for group play, for better or for worse. That does make starting them game overwhelming if doing so outside of an existing group of players.
