I guess I just don't understand how you can knock it out of the fucking park with TTK and fail so spectacularly on everything else you ever do in a game.
Destiny 1 and almost all of its DLC: Garbage.
Destiny 1 The Taken King: One of the best MMO experiences I've ever had.
Destiny 2 and all it's DLC: Less smelly garbage.
So Bungie is apparently just straight up removing the original campaign from Destiny 2 as well as all the locations from the launch of the game, and I gotta say I just don't understand this series at all.
What kind of brain poisoning do you have to have where you spend literal years working on content and then completely scour it from your game? What's the fucking point of getting invested when you know that zones and stories will just disappear forever?
Like, the campaign wasn't great, but it still deserves to exist in order to make sense of what's happening next.
I feel like Bungie can't decide if this game is competing with an MMO, where players can chill and explore old maps at their leisure, or the COD series where there's a content refresh every year and the population of the old games disappears. This weird middle ground they're trying to straddle is bad.

I've actually really been enjoying tanking in 14. I never realized how much I don't enjoy the feeling of making a misstep and instantly dying as DPS. Being able to survive a massive hit as a tank and keep fighting is pretty awesome. Plus the feeling when you're the last man standing and you strategically pop your damage mitigation abilities, and you think "Maybe I can beat this on my own" is exceptionally empowering.
The one thing I'm not sold on for DRK is Living Dead, which basically let's you survive a fatal hit for 10s so long as you get healed back to full health.
It's a great idea in theory, but usually when I pop it I either don't die, wasting it, or I don't get healed to full because the healer doesn't know what that ability does. Might try to write a Macro that says something like "Living Dead cast, heal me to full!" Not sure it'll make a difference but who knows.
Alright, if we're doing Thomas the Tank Engine here's my contribution to the mix. https://youtu.be/VALJZBKFEFQ

Uspol, voting, gross
There's an old saying about US elections, where our system often forces us to choose between two poor candidates.
"Every election is a choice between two turd sandwiches. You might as well pick the one with the olives."
Biden is an embarrassment of a candidate. An absolute turd sandwich that we have to choke down. But he comes with olives, like not trying to defund social security every year, or withholding disaster aid from States he doesn't like, or throwing children into concentration camps as a matter of immigration policy.
He will not solve all of our problems. We'll have to do that ourselves by marching and continuing to fight. But you'd better believe it'll be easier to do that with him as President than Trump. Plus he'll probably make a few things better on accident.
In other words: voting is the equivalent of "We should improve society somewhat."
