In other news, our friend Mesa Sean was recently featured by Bungie!

A great source for information you need to make your Guardian more powerful is MesaSean. He’s a newer face among the crowd that plays Bungie games, but his voice is worth hearing. And, as it turns out, he thinks the same thing about you.

    I feel that with Bungie releasing this community spotlight article and never mentioning anything to do with Destiny or any of its problems is just a big slap in the face to the community. There are literally people begging for Bungie to say anything at all about Destiny and it’s problems because Bungie has barely addressed anything with Destiny since launch and Bungie isn’t doing anything. I guess we will have to wait for Friday when the weekly update comes out to see if Bungie actually cares about the community and what we have to say. This is becoming a problem and it needs to be fixed.

      Have you not seen the change-log and the dev notes as well as the hotfixes to lootcaves and gear that have already happened?
      They’ve addressed just about everything that needed changing; from farming caves for hours because of the high enemy numbers, the drops you get from finishing strikes and other activities, to balancing of overpowered weapons in the crucible like shotguns and auto rifles.
      What else needs changing? because they’ve addressed just about everything wrong currently until something new comes up, and then I’m sure they’ll get to that too.

        They haven’t addressed a thing. They have said they will, there’s a big difference. They also said the patch would be out this week, but the day they update destiny has come and gone. We’ll see if it happens today (the day Xbox consoles get game updates) but Bungie has been silent on the issue after saying they were going to fix it all.

        • Chuck

          The day they update the game isn’t necessarily the day they do patch updates. When they took the ascendent materials away from the queen’s armor last week, it was on different day from when they released the update. They said they will put the patch up this week, so maybe you can stop the complaint until that is proven wrong?

        • realtuathafc

          They patched the game today dumby

            And they hadn’t when I posted the comment, cumstain.My point was last week all they did was prevent engram farming. It doesn’t matter, though. Drops may be better now but they still cut the story all to shit so they can sell it back as DLC. Until we get substantial content I have no faith that this game can make it a year, much less 3 until the next game.

    Anyone know when this app update will roll out? My phone does not show any of these improvements.

    I wish In could get Companion on my windows phone. It sure sucks that I can’t get most things with it :/
