‘Customer service informed me that I needed to wait for all the DLC (Down Loadable Cotton) to be released’
Several weeks after launch, people started to really pile on Destiny 2. It wasn’t just that it had introduced new problems that had already been solved in the first game, nor that the endgame activities were poorly handled, but a lot of the backlash was due to Bungie itself.
After years of poor communication, the studio just hasn’t learned, and as more and more major developers hash things out with their communities with direct lines, their silence and flair for the dramatic PR-laded stream reveals just isn’t cutting it. All of this came to a head when we found out that Bungie lied about XP earn rates to its playerbase by displaying the wrong numbers — only reverting the system when they were found out.
The above t-shirt, “Two Tokens and a Blue,” kind of embodies the restlessness. As a play on Public Events, the shirt implies that most of your rewards are useless, particularly the maligned token system inspired by MMOs that Bungie bungles by making it a slot machine instead of a painless alternative way to get coveted pieces of loot.
The reviews are pretty great, ranging from “Customer service informed me that I needed to wait for all the DLC (Down Loadable Cotton) to be released,” to This is a great shirt. I wanted to order more but my vault space was limited.”
