Bro, they had two whole other studios and Activision cash then. Wind your expectations, lest ye be bitterly dissapointed.
I have no expectations now. I pretty much put this season down with over a month left and that was with Shadowkeep content included. If it's just Season of the Undying for the next year then I'll play it for a week and be done.

Sounds cool. Will be significantly disappointed if there's no raid though. A 6 man activity isn't enough, especially with how lackluster Season of the Undying's 6 man activity was. If there's no new raid then I'll play through the story stuff and probably put it down for the rest of the season.
Wellllll they made shadowkeep 6 man activity before getting the feed back about Menagerie, so hopefully this is more menagerie like.

I ain't gonna complain incessantly about it (even though I basically kinda am to a certain degree, but I'm just going to say that I am not and y'all will have to accept this new reality I have shaped). I understand the hardships of keeping this live service game ever so lively and I have my expectations set, it's why I'm already honking the "disappointeeeeeeeeed" horn. But I agree that I will inevitably drop it pretty early on no doubt. That's just the reality of it.
What hardships?

How many new horde modes this time?

Any content that isn't a strike or a raid is wasted effort.
Pretty much. They lost me halfway through the current expansion, and they haven't shown anything interesting enough to bring me back. The loss of the development teams Activision was paying for is really showing.

Sundial is gonna be Vex Offensive on Mercury. Everything looks good and I've got the deluxe so I'm in no matter what, but I've tempered my expectations.

Everybody is getting flash kicked though. Everybody.

Also for those wonderding: If you own D2 on Steam and in XBOX/PS4/Stadia, you only need one season pass and you'll get it in every platform. You have to link accounts and activate cross-save though.

That trailer was pretty hype. Makes me a bit sad I don't play anymore. Just a little, though.

That activity kind of looked like Vex Offensive in the sense of 6 people working to fight a boss. Hard pass.

Vex offensive was so lackluster.

So we'll probably get a weekly evolving story again, like Eris' stuff this season? Or are we getting some actual story missions?

Bungie trailers are hype as ever, but after this season idk how much I'll allow myself to get excited. I think destiny isn't able to keep me interested as much as it used to these days which definitely bums me out.

Also, fucking cabal, can we not deal with them ever again please? The most boring race in all of destiny.

I'm 110% convinced that when they do the Twitch reveal livestream, they're going to announce Trials is coming back. They're flying streamers out there. Probably not a coincidence.

I was going to use the 1k silver from buying Forsaken to buy the drop kick finisher but that flash kick finisher has me rethinking that.

I can't wait! I spent the last 2 weeks or so playing other things, so it'll nice to come back to Destiny.

Not just any streamers, either. They're flying out noted Trials streamers. It's most definitely coming back.

As much as I love Windmill, I'm probably going to drop the Silver for a shoryuken finisher, aren't I?

No new raid is disappointing, but expected. I’ve always thought they should release two decent sized raids a year (Garden sized and up) instead of one big raid and two smaller raid lairs.

Menagerie was great, hopefully this new activity is a bit more like that and less of the vex offensive. I thought the offensive was better than most people on here seem to think though, I didn't mind it. I do hate the feeling of stealing kills to get bounties though, I wish there was a way to fix that.

I have never been more hype than I have been with that trailer.

I’m ready to be Disappointed tho. Cautiously optimistic.

"I can't wait to go back to Mercury " said no one.
At first this was my approach, because you know, fuck Mercury and everything it stands for. But whatever makes Mercury an actual interesting enough location to go back to, I may just be all for it. Unless we still can't summon sparrows, then fuck Mercury still.

seems like their trailers are getting low budget. feels like dying game (i know it isn't).

could we have a good scout and what is that one shot action it's doing? well knowing the hand cannon cartel of the community, nah, they wont allow a good scout. however it looks really cool.

the event thing is just gonna be yet another horde mode, right?

I did spot some sparrow use in the trailer.

At least there's some continuation from killing the Undying Mind. I'm still wondering wtf Uldren is doing.

Trailer looks nice. Saint XIV showing up was awesome.

As for the actual content. Meh. I'm still catching up with a bunch of old quests but I'm (cynically) hoping what they provide here to be a lot more substantial than the Season of Undying. Vex Offensive was straight up trash and I hope the new activity takes a little more inspiration from the Menagerie.
