Destiny 2’s announcement was yesterday, as a huge Bungie fan and a big fan of the original game I am very excited to go back to Destiny later this year and I know I will have a good time but it got me thinking what feature Bungie could add to the game that will make the game much better than its predecessor, here are three things that I thought of:
- Ditch the loot drop and pick up crafting
One of the reasons why most players got really frustrated with Destiny was the Loot Drop system, every week I played the Nightfall hoping for a Hawkemoon and after one whole year I still didn’t get it, that is really terrible! but imagine if Hawkemoon was a craft able gun and I could have gathered couple of components and crafted it myself, it doesn’t matter how hard it is to obtain those components but knowing that if I put in the time and effort I will get what I want is the best way to motivate the player, Monster Hunter does that perfectly and it is in my opinion one of the best systems ever.
- PvP enabled Patrol Zones.
I am not talking about getting rid of the Patrol from D1 but I am asking for zones where PvP are enabled by default, having bounties and specific quests in those zones to encourage players going there will make them very fun and engaging to play, or maybe they could add a feature like The Division’s Dark Zone or some kind of survival element that could make even more interesting to play.
- For the Solo player
The fact that D1 didn’t have anything for Solo players was really sad, I really wish they did have something beyond Bounties, this is why I think the previous point could be very fun because it will allow solo players (like me) to find things to do and also not fall so behind, The issue with D1 was the fact that it appeared that the most skilled players were those who did the Raids while they just teamed up with someone and he carried everyone, I really hope this wont be the case with D2.
there are many other things I wish it will change with Destiny like Light Levels, but I think that could be ok if other aspects of the game is better designed.
