The real end of Destiny 2 is not sweating in Grandmaster Nightfalls, nor is it trying to avoid Shatterdived in an existential crisis while playing Osiris Trials. The real challenge is to find out which of your God Rolling Adept weapons you want to delete, in order to preserve the shrinking corners of the free vault space you are using.
Quick View Destiny Item Manager, Excellent third-party application, without it, our inventory will disappear completely Unable to manage, it shows that I currently have 489/500 slots full. Reader, let me tell you that by my standards, this is relatively spacious.Anything over 490 I start to panic, because it means another round of Sophie’s Choice when I work hard to study the weapon to cheer up Light.gg In order to decide which of my treasures to delete.
Now, non-Destiny 2 players are likely to think: “Why you may need more than 500 weapons, which is enough to launch an effective coup in many countries”. There are many reasons, but the most important thing is that weapons no longer expire. During a relatively short and extremely unpopular period, Bungie tried “sunset” weapons, which involved giving them a shelf life, after which they would no longer be able to inject maximum power, so they could not actually be used in advanced content.
Rolling back to the sunset is the right decision, because it is stifling the motivation to pursue the perfect combination. Players just don’t want to invest so much time in honing guns that they know will not exist forever. However, the problem that the sunsetting aims to solve has not disappeared.
1) Power creepEach new season of Destiny brings a new set of weapons, but as old weapons no longer gradually withdraw from metadata, Bungie’s sandbox team must continue to add ideal new perks to mix them. They need to make sure that there is always a reason to install new 140 rpm hand cannons on all 140 rpm hand cannons that have accumulated dust in your vault.Creative benefits such as headstone, Tube perspective, with Rewind round Without ensuring that the new gun is strictly superior to the old one, it has done a great job in generating this interest. Only the combat designer knows how long Bungie can last, but so far, everything is fine.
However, it is worth noting that Bungie’s sandbox team’s increased responsiveness to balance changes is a double-edged sword. Players don’t know which privileges may be enhanced in the future, so due to a slight balance adjustment, it is easy to stick to a roll that may become spicy overnight. Recently, the community manager dmg04 revealed that the much criticized Adrenaline Junkie perk is being redesigned. Good news for grenade spammers, bad news for those of us who have removed hundreds of adrenaline junk guns. Almost everyone is like this.
Psst… stick to your adrenaline junkie roll. The team has interesting and good news, which will be launched soon.October 12, 2021
2) Vault space. Bungie was unsuccessful in persuading players to delete their old equipment. Everyone I have spoken to is distressed by storing all these things, especially since your Vault is also used to store ships, armor, sparrows, ghosts, and various other items. For the seasonal model of adding new weapons and armor every three or four months, excluding special events, it will always become a substantial bottleneck. All my characters are filled with as many items as they can carry with them, and I use their mailboxes as spillage-at the risk of being forcibly deleted when they are full.
The last time Bungie increased the size of the vault was in August 2018, when it added 200 additional slots, bringing us to the current limit of 500. “But if they give you more, won’t you fill it with rubbish?” Probably! But the point is, it will take a while. In the past three years, the previous bumps have almost kept our heads on the water. , But now we are drowning. I have to spend a quarter of the game time playing with inventory blocks, sullenly breaking down guns with a lot of potential into a pile of legendary pieces. Obviously this is not ideal. So why doesn’t Bungie do anything? ?
What does Bungie say about this problem
At the end of August, I interviewed Game Director Joe Blackburn and General Manager Justin Truman and asked them directly if they could do anything. Both are very aware of the problem and sympathize with the real trouble it caused, but it doesn’t sound like a quick solution.
“Adding Vault space is more technically complicated for us, and at the back end of our entire player base, I think people are aware of this,” Truman explained. “So it’s not just that we press a button, and then, hey, we give everyone more vault space.”
Blackburn went on to say: “The problem of bungee jumping, imagine that the vault space is a highway through major cities. If we want to expand the highway, we will also have to demolish some people’s houses. We will have to do it in a very harsh way. Pay the price for this.”
I am absolutely certain that Bungie will not avoid adding more space just to be capricious or to teach us some lessons about difficult personal choices. I have no doubt that a major Vault Space expansion will involve a significant investment of time and money, but what I want to say is: let’s talk about it. Because I prefer to spend $10 on another 100 slots instead of another fashionable emoji in Eververse. If cost is the biggest problem, please solve it for us. You may be surprised at how much people are willing to contribute to this quality of life change. Especially with the release of the next major expansion pack, the Witch Queen will be released on February 22, and another major influx of equipment is in progress.
Some potential solutions
The silver lining is the weapon production system launched with the Witch Queen. Although the specific details have not been revealed yet, Blackburn told me Players will eventually be able to make any possible gun version based on their perk template. “When you can make an accurate scroll, you will be able to make all the versions of the gun you want,” he explained. “So this is really a long-term pursuit of weapons. And we think that if you are willing to spend so much time on the gun, we can let you make any version you want.”
We don’t know exactly what the resources or time training involved will look like, but in theory, production should reduce the pressure on our Vaults. You will no longer need to keep a bunch of different versions of the same gun. If you want to try, you just need to keep your favorite and then make a different one. However, making it is not a panacea for the problem. At the time of release, production will be limited to the new Assault, Seasonal, and Throne world weapons of the Witch Queen. Older guns will be added later, but it sounds like we will definitely keep a lot of old things.
I don’t like playing armchair designer because I don’t know the exact problem that prevents the expansion of Vault Space. (Although I suspect that continued support for PS4 and Xbox One will be a factor.) But it is easy to identify several potential pain points, and if alleviated, can help Vault space compression. First of all, please stop complicating the workings of elemental armor associations. As far as the current situation is concerned, we must keep multiple copies of each armor to ensure that we can use Solar, Arc, Void and now Stasis mods. This can be solved by making it, once finished, a piece of armor can be switched between each element without additional cost.
On this basis, if there is no in-game loading system, please remove the shimmer cost of the application module. Ideally, this would enable third-party tools to replace the entire build. I am also talking about coloring devices and decorations, for my fashion pioneer. All of a sudden, we can reduce the number of armors in the cabinet and keep only the things with the most statistics.
We can do this tomorrow. All we need is Bungie to give DIM the same authorization as in the Destiny Companion app today. https://t.co/ofZn0Z1KjFOctober 3, 2021
The good news is, to be honest, I think Bungie understands. The people at the top had a lot of fun, and there is no doubt that they will encounter the same Vault space struggle. In terms of how fast they can make route corrections, live games are like super tankers, but if there is already something that can help us hoarders, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Let’s hope so, because damn it, I will not dismantle any of these six time lost corrective measures before I know it. Exactly The look of Adrenaline Junkie buff.
