Geez, I guess I had assumed the dailies and weeklies would just show up as one of the "core" missions if you didn't have the DLC-- that's the way it is with the Vanguard vendors and "regular" vs "expansion" item sets they're selling, right? I certainly hope so!
I mean, taking away a feature you already had access to and then making you pay them more money to get it back is pretty close to the line as far as "a bad deal" vs "something that should actually be illegal" goes.
The one thing that mitigates this a little is the fact that the dailies/weeklies won't be expansion content every time... but that doesn't eliminate the issue. In fact, it'll just keep getting worse over time!
I wonder if Bungie have plans to make expansion content available to everyone after some particular length of time has passed. That's the way it worked with most of the Halo games' DLC, and it'd be even more important in this case, to avoid reaching the point where people get so far behind they feel like they can't even play the game anymore.
Get better, Destiny! This shit ain't gonna fly for ten years.
