Bungie announces plans to remedy Destiny 2's loot box system

Bungie announces plans to remedy Destiny 2's loot box system

As expected, Crimson Days is officially returning for Valentine's Day 2018, and will roll out on February 13.

Towards the end of 2017 players have been critical about the endgame content that was available for Destiny 2 players. Will it be just as disappointing as the 2016 iteration? Will we still have to rely on tokens and luck to claim prizes?

In a development update concerning Destiny 2, one of the game's directors, Christopher Barrett, opened the lines of communication with fans to provide a forecast of what would be coming in the next year for the game. In addition to expressing outrage over Bungie altering experience gains for players without notice, the more dedicated players found that the Eververse-the in-game microtransaction store-featured many items that were otherwise hard to find on your own.

Completing Nightfall, Raid, and Crimson Days milestones during Crimson Days will reward you an exclusive Legendary Emote, Weapon Skin, and Exotic Sparrow, respectively.

There are even some plans that stretch out to autumn 2018, though these are vague bullet points for the time being and only represent a "small sample" of items Bungie is hoping to add in the future. The biggest difference is that each faction's reward pool will replace last year's accessories with season two armor ornaments. Players have been fuming for months and reasons run the gamut. But few features draw more ire than the Eververse store, where players spend real money on an assortment of cosmetic items. Well, Bungie has finally made a decision to do something about that, too. Christopher Barrett, says "We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never meant to be a substitute for end game content and rewards". That's not surprising. But there are some changes happening to "shift the balance" of favoring activity rewards over having to earn them through Bright Engrams.

Barrett writes that future updates to Destiny 2 will also give players a "gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards (including Event Engrams)".

However, the XP situation is still up in the air, as Bungie is still working out how to adjust adjusting XP rates for both fairness and transparency.

Masterwork Armor will also roll out at the end of the month, further expanding the game's loot pool, as part of a massive patch slated for January 30.

If you're raiding, the reward is really the friends you make along the way. In addition to a reworked loot drop system, updates to the Crucible, and an expanded scope to recently added Masterwork items, the developers also included mentions of several changes that affect the quality of life for the game, which many fans have been clamoring to see for quite some time.
