Love having to grind public events for 30 of the 'whatever item'... especially when they don't drop on every completion. And my absolute favorite is doing a Heroic PE, not getting the thing, then the chest giving me a single token.. really makes me feel like my time and efforts are being rewarded.

Or how about strikes and crucible dropping loot at soft cap power levels? Remember when leveling up the Vanguard or Shaxx would drop loot at or above your Light Level? Like doing those things would actually matter to your progression?

I feel like I'm getting tired of justifying this game to myself... D1 turned into such a good game. I feel like I'm playing D2 with the grim hope that somehow Bungie will magically turn it into everything that I loved about D1. But then rationally I know that won't be the case. For me, half the fun was grinding to get that perfect roll. Fixed rolls killed that for me.. And the Masterworks system isn't different enough from the regular guns for me to care.

I feel like this is a bad relationship. Bungie ****ed up so badly, but I'm here trying to justify staying together despite knowing it's over. And I just can't bring myself to leave...

Feel very similar. Honestly, haven't played any of the Osiris expansion or holiday event with the terrible things I've been hearing from my old crew. Been going through my backlog of unplayed games, having quite a good time.

I think I'll honestly wait until all the Season pass is out, then marathon it, then probably not pick it up again.

I'll still jump on on the weekend to game with a friend. As I posted though, I'm losing faith Bungie will turn it all around.
