@nevalis: Sadly, just about every single thing about the game is convoluted. While I keep playing the game I honestly have lost a little bit of respect for Bungie after Destiny's release.
Man just a little? Destiny is a really interesting idea that fails in many more ways than it succeeds. This in of itself wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, but the PR hype machine prior to release coupled with their defensive/passive-aggressive statements and how they really lean into the "it's our way or the highway" philosophy all work towards putting Destiny in the dimmest of lights that even the traveller couldn't illuminate.
Personally I found it astounding that this game went through rigorous playtesting and no one raised any concerns about the many, many bad design choices present.
I can guarantee you they did, but they probably said that's how it's meant to be played/by design/too late to fix.Usually every obvious bug and design flaw the users find will have been raised by QA or playtest but waived by the devs for one reason or another.
