Bungie pulls tonight's livestream to confront Destiny 2 criticism

Bungie was supposed to have their third and final Curse of Osiris stream this week, a mere seven days out from the launch of the somewhat anticipated first DLC for Destiny 2, but after the recent controversies, the unusually silent developer has chose to cancel the Twitch stream.

"Tomorrow, we had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of "Curse of Osiris" to show off some of the weapons and armor the expansion includes". Instead, it will release a blog post penned by studio leadership to address the current atmosphere of anger which has engulfed in the game's community. Instead, we are investing all our efforts into delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2.

This all follows from last week's news that Destiny 2 contained a hidden XP scaling system, which would actively lower the value of each experience point for players chaining together multiple activities. As for that whole XP thing, Bungie states that it has "begun the process of collecting data and recalibrating XP earn rates to improve them as quickly as possible", adding: "Expect to see a lot of conversation from our team on this front, as XP rewards are updated and brought back in-line with player expectations".

The court's original conviction said Tudjman played a leading role in a plan to create a small Croat state in Bosnia. According to Croatian State Agency HINA, a helicopter has been sent for Praljak.

None of this has sat well with gamers, who are understandably miffed about the situation. We want Destiny to be a game that fits into your life, providing you with reasons to log in and play with your friends, clans, and families. Now the storyline is good, but the insane loot system, the tokens, and the zero personality to crucible choices, weapon rolls and the one use shaders are, in my opinion, ridiculous. More fixes and adjustments are on the way as Destiny fans patiently await the upcoming expansion, Curse of Osiris.

If you're on the fence about it, Bungie is offering a free Destiny 2 trial beginning today for PS4, Xbox One, and the PC version of the game.
