Destiny 2 has actually been going through a little bit of an ordeal with its XP system, and Bungie has actually now upgraded us on exactly what’s taking place.
We just recently discovered that Destiny 2 has a surprise XP cooldown that begins after you strike level 20, indicating that you’re not being rewarded for your actions in the very same method you view you’re being rewarded. This has actually been seen by numerous as a transparent effort to restrict the variety of Bright Engrams you make, in the hope of making gamers purchase more with real-world loan. As it ends up, we might have been making 50-95% less XP for activities than we understood.
Today, Bungie is resolving its absence of openness in how it has actually gone over Destiny 2 and the systems that underpin it. Many modifications are being presented to enhance the video game, they guarantee. As part of this procedure of being more open, they’ve likewise straight resolved the XP concern.
As part of a long post on the state of Destiny, Bungie has actually gone over the XP mechanics, and exactly what has to alter.
“Last weekend, we disabled a scaling mechanism that adjusted XP gains up and down without reflecting those adjustments in the UI”, the post checks out. “Our intention was to keep slower-paced activities as rewarding as high intensity grinding without confusing variations in displayed XP values, but the silent nature of the mechanic betrayed the expectation of transparency that you have for Destiny 2.”
This system has actually been handicapped, today the XP requires rebalancing– today it takes 160 k XP to level up, which suggests that leveling takes place exceptionally gradually on some activities, making them feel meaningless. “We have begun the process of collecting data and recalibrating XP earn rates to improve them as quickly as possible”, the post checks out.
“Expect to see a lot of conversation from our team on this front, as XP rewards are updated and brought back in-line with player expectations”, this area of the post concludes.
Hopefully we’ll discover something more conclusive about this quickly, particularly with the video game’s very first piece of DLC right around the corner.Related youtube video: (not from post)
