Maybe Bungie can learn from this? (Destiny)

I’m not sure Diablo 4 is a game anyone should be looking to as an example of how to do anything correctly, and definitely not in the way this article talks about. Would you really want to play more Destiny if it took away all your gear and upgrades and made you start from zero every three months?

I wish they’d learn from something like Baldur’s Gate 3 instead (based on what I’ve seen about it so far).

Don't know anything about either game really, so I'll defer to you. Bungie devs have rhetorically encouraged people to take breaks. I'd appreciate a reasonable way to reduce FOMO.

1. Let people bank rewards. Don't do your activity this week? You can do it twice next week and get rewarded twice.
2. Don't vault anything. That way you can always go back and do a thing.

Problem solved. No FOMO.

Someone explain to me why this solution is somehow unworkable because it seems so obvious.
