    Nice studio set-up. Kind of sloppy with weak evidence to back their points.

    I don’t agree with them on this one, but it is what it is.

    In all honesty, people should stop getting excited over seasons. they're SEASONS not dlc. They are merely minor additions.

    Perhaps, but it is rather complicated these days. Whether considering a developer’s perspective or that of a consumer, it’s difficult to balance content, interest, and engagement. When Destiny was first introduced, it was fairly unique as a console-based looter-shooter MMO-esque experience. Now though? It has heavy competition from similar titles in Warframe and The Division 2. Even worse, Battle Royales have captured engagement far better than a narrative-heavy game can, and each with their own time-sink battle passes. So, Destiny 2 is forced to up their game to try to compete in kind. That’s why the base game went free-to-play and now the seasons have their own battle passes. Bungie has an uphill climb, and I’m not sure it’s the right move...

    Small seasons allow for bigger scale things to go on in the background, which could mean a better contect load later on down the road. take the community challenge for example.

    Oh yeah, they could certainly be doing something fantastic here, but it’s more of a conflict with the typical pace of expectations. I’m in regardless, just hoping it’ll be enough to retain the current community and increase growth overall.

    Seeing as they are bringing back a crap ton of fan favorite thing's(SRL, Elimination, that one crucible map, Saint), I think it will be enough for the community until the next big thing.
