Destiny 2 Director Teases Upcoming Update and Economy Changes

27 November 2017

Many redditors have been compiling anecdotal evidence of the XP system and ultimately proved the faster you earned XP, the less you would receive for the same activities. The players were able to get XP but their XP would fill up the bar and out of nowhere, will offer Bright Engram.

Last weekend, Destiny 2 had its first "Clarion Call" event, which gave bonus XP to players when they were joined by at least one of their clanmates.

One of the issues to discussed will likely involve the controversy with Destiny 2's XP cooldown, with Bungie announcing recently that XP gains will now scale up when participation in more time-consuming activities. The second or third (or fifteenth) time they earned the same number of XP, the bar would get a much smaller chunk. After reviewing our data, we agree that the system is not performing the way we'd like it to.

This same system scales XP up when playing Crucible matches, the Leviathan Raid, and other activities that take more than a couple of minutes to complete.

We are not happy with the results, and we've heard the same from the community. Players will see XP gains across all formats consistently, with no interference on the user interface. Over the course of the next week, we will be watching and reviewing XP game data to ensure that these changes meet our expectations, as well as yours.

Investment updates (new reward systems for weapons & armor).

This whole situation is tied to XP gains and Destiny 2's Eververse micro transaction store, also known as Bungie's on-going cash machine.

You could also look unfavourably on the fact that it took an eagle-eyed Redditor to point out the machinations and PC Gamer to cover it before Bungie made a decision to change it and put out a public statement on a busy holiday weekend. The more sceptical side of my fat face however, also thinks that it was created to keep the rewarding of Bright Engrams down to a crawl, possibly influencing post-level 20 players to spend some cash on the in-game Silver currency. The change follows players questioning the XP system, which is apparently rigged to pay out fewer loot boxes than the game should. To sum it up, if you were grinding exp like mad in events like Public Events, you have been gaining less and less exp every time.
