Do they even have to? (Destiny)

I have no idea what the state of the game is now, but Crucible has been a mess since forever. And even with mixing and matching, it’s hard to imagine it mattering a whole lot for PvE. When they redid the subclasses, Solar Titan was basically indestructible and able to create infinite Solar Wells on command. Even after the balance pass, it was untouchable. Granted, I know those systems were reworked with Lightfall so maybe that’s not the case anymore.

Still, just letting players go nuts as the final hurrah seems okay to me.

Honestly, probably the right idea even from just a business perspective. Even if I have been on-again-off-again and mostly absent the last few years, seeing the franchise I've spent thousands of hours in bring its main arc to a conclusion is enticing myself (and likely many others) to return. Letting people go nuts is a good way to help bring in the strongest surge possible (because some degree of surge is GOING to happen, and there will likely be some degree of exodus afterward).
