Rip, why the hell would you uninstall one of the greatest looter-shooters of all time?! Thank you for your question, random person. Allow me to elaborate.
Destiny 2 has been in my gaming rotation since its release on September 6, 2017. As the sequel to the original title, Destiny 2 took off with great anticipation. The campaign was fascinating and the recently formed original Guardian Down Squad (GDSQ), formed in the tribulation of King’s Fall, took to the new challenge with gusto. After a quick rise to level cap, the Leviathan raid beckoned and the GDSQ decided to take the Oath of Darkness while completing the raid. Simply put, we chose to avoid all hints, guides, and spoilers while pitting our own wits against the Leviathan test. Truth be told, it took months of casual play but through effort, skill, and a touch of luck, we finally defeated Calus and took our prizes with great satisfaction.
After defeating the Leviathan raid, most found Destiny 2 had universally become rather bland experience. The community outcry was deafening and, to their credit, Bungie began to respond, albeit slowly, to the concern. Players began to leave the game in droves, YouTube content was continually being posted about the negative state of the game, while devs feverishly worked to resolve content and weapon issues. Roadmaps were published, promises were made, and was rectified with the brand new Forsaken expansion. Suddenly, all seemed right with the [nerd] world.
Excited to move forward with a new Destiny 2 experience, the GDSQ gathered once more to crush the campaign, while keeping one eye on the (rumored to be much more difficult) Last Wish raid. Again, we took the Oath of Darkness and would accept no assistance in our journey — a decision which was both horrendous and rewarding. Arguably the most difficult raid ever conceived by Bungie, the Last Wish raid took months of effort and setbacks, while providing only marginal victories. One by one, bosses fell and puzzles were solved until, about two weeks ago, we finally finished the Last Wish raid — start to finish, in one weekend. And it was an epic [nerd] adventure.
After hours of gameplay and the much rewarding culmination of completing both raids without assistance, it’s time to hang up my cloak. I’ve accomplished all the high points and feel good about the exit. Been playing in the Destiny world for better than four years and we’ve all put in some time. What kinda time? As of this writing:
- GroovyTimBob // 30 days, 1 hour
- Ripcordless // 16 days, 8 hours
- Angel // 13 days, 3 hours
- Chica // 13 days, 21 hours
- TangoChaser // 11 days, 21 hours
- Darth Sacko // 11 days, 2 hours
- MaxiusPower // 10 days, 23 hours
- MuricanSheepDog // 10 days, 6 hours
- Hellian // 9 days, 12 hours
Kinda been there, done that, enjoyed the hell outta the ride but time to move on. Don’t get me wrong, once Bungie settles and is focused on Destiny 3, I’ll be there but until then, it’s time to uninstall Destiny 2. Enjoy.
