Since its launch, Destiny 2 has pretty much been ripped apart by fans. There were complaints with the story (though not as many as the original game), the gameplay, the lootcrates, the endgame content, etc. Just about everything was touched in regards to how Bungie messed things up. However, one thing that wasn’t so much talked about (at least not by the majority) was balancing. Sure, there were issues with loot content being unbalanced at times, but the overall seemed good. And that’s what got players worried now.
Redditor Tequilan517 definitely is afraid, for he learned the hard way that Bungie isn’t always the best when it comes to balance patches. In fact, they were one of the worst parts of the original Destiny in their eyes:
“For every one positive weapon balance change, two things were broken (typically in PvE..) and if something was considered overpowered it was typically driven into the ground.”
They even go so far as to say that by the time they reached the end of “year 03” in terms of content and patches, the original Destiny was barely recognizable, and the things that happened in it didn’t make sense at all. So, you can understand their fear as you know that Bungie is going to be doing something in regards to balance patches for Destiny 2, and likely starting it very soon.
Now, the question is, what would they change? Well, all patches often look at what the players are using, and abusing, and then seeing how they can help “adjust” that. There are a lot of weapons in Destiny 2, so it’s natural to assume that many will get upgraded or downgraded, it just depends on what they see.
Do you fear the balance changes that are coming? If so, why? Or, do you think these changes could help fix the game? Let us know in the comments below.
