They would take the world first over good loot 100 times out of 100. That was the entire point of what they were doing.

That being said I'm certain Bungie will change the look rewards, and these first groups that did it will probably get something special anyway.

Wait...no loot.....what's the point? I loved this interview but I don't want to spend 10 hours and not get any loot. Am I missing something?

@deadstar: I think when they said "we got the bug" I think they are talking about a in game bug where the expected loot drop didn't end up in everyone's inventory. Something Bungie CS could fix (if that is what he meant).

Hearing this actually makes me more interested in the game. Also shows a bit more what Destiny seems to be going for.

Good stuff. Doubt I'd be able to get a group together on PlayStation 3 to even try this, but hopefully once I get a PlayStation 4 in December most of my friends will still be playing on there.

Completing a Destiny raid for the first time is still one of my favorite gaming moments. Curious what we'll see in Destiny's future with Bungie having severed ties with Activision.
