The last 4.5 years of this show have been incredible and that is all thanks to you, the listeners, followers, & supporters. You gave us the chance to be a part of a community that was incredibly special. After 4.5 years of weekly Destiny podcasts, Ditty and I have decided to hang up the proverbial headphones and retire DTS. With the release of Destiny The Show 224 we will be concluding the Destiny The Show podcast.
Ditty and I began Destiny The Show back in June 2014 and have done a weekly news-focused show ever since. Over the years, our real life jobs have become more challenging, and require more time as well as effort. As a result, it has been tough to dedicate the time towards DTS each week & maintain real life responsibilities.The DTS Discord (discord.me/destinytheshow) isn’t going anywhere. With over 1,300 awesome members strong, the Destiny The Show discord will continue to exist and provide a location for Destiny fans to team up, discuss, and become legend. The website and podcasts will remain up for the foreseeable future. I (bbkdragoon) will still be making YouTube content regularly.
We thank you all so so so much for the support over the years. This was an incredible experience for us, and you all made DTS extremely special. We wish you all the best and remember... Eyes up guardians

Update 1.2.3 for Destiny 2 releases today bringing with it the return to 6v6 quickplay of Destiny 2 PvP, the permanent addition of Rumble to the crucible playlists, & more. Bounties quietly return to Destiny 2 but in a very similar fashion to how they existed in Destiny 1, leaving us wondering how & why Bungie opted not to expand and improve upon the daily incentive system. This week we also learned that Nathan Fillion did not voice Cayde-6 in Forsaken, leaving many questions unanswered. Thanks for listening to this week's Destiny The Show podcast.

Giant Destiny 2 story spoilers as the narrative takes a darker turn. Will this story of revenge deliver? Gambit game mode impressions and feedback. Black Ops 4 Season Pass has angered its community and very clearly has overlap with the Destiny 2 Annual Pass. Is Activision treading on thin ice with these decisions?

Thanks for listening to this week’s show.
This week we discuss the Destiny 2 Exotic Armor Changes coming in update 1.2.1. With the Weapon Slot Revamp coming this fall, should players have a chance to test or give feedback on these big weapon slot changes before they are pushed live in the Taken Queen? We recap the Iron Banner emote controversy and talk about the first 6v6 event of Warmind. Anthem E3 2018 has been confirmed, we'll discuss what we want to see from it and hopefully get some more (less scripted) Anthem gameplay. Thanks for listening to this week’s show.
This week we discuss the updated Road Map for Destiny 2 in 2018. A new summer event is coming to Destiny 2 plus prestige mode for both Eater of Worlds & Spire of Stars Raid Lairs. The TWAB gives a review of the investment economy in Warmind currently with some changes coming to Escalation Protocol item drop rates.

Warmind is releasing May 8 so now is a perfect time to hop back in to catch up before the expansion launches next week. We'll also talk briefly about Elder Scrolls Online & its Summerset Expansion at the end of the program. Thanks for listening to this week’s show.
This week we talk about the Warmind reveal stream trailer with the new game mode Escalation Protocol. This new game mode in Destiny 2 could have a ton of potential if done correctly. We then recap the Bungie Community Summit, what are the impressions we are hearing from the folks that got to spend the weekend at Bungie sharing feedback on the state of Destiny 2. We close the show with a recap of the Kulve Taroth event in Monster Hunter World. Thanks for listening to this week’s show.
This week we talk about Destiny 2 Warmind Expansion as we now have the official release date of May 8.

Then we recap Warframe devstream 109 as it brought with it a new game mode Sanctuary Onslaught and a new warframe Khora.

Today we discuss the upcoming Destiny 2 community summit in which many community members and influencers will spend time at Bungie HQ to talk about the future of Destiny 2. Expansion 2 has been teased now twice online with Chris Barrett being at the center of each of these peaks under the curtain. We'll also review the Bungie Bounty Q&A stream as well as answers the devs gave. World of Warcraft Battle For Azeroth releases August 14 2018 and we are excited! Plus the Spring Blossom festival is now live in Monster Hunter World for the next week. Don't miss out! Thanks for listening to this week’s show
Activision Blizzard Stock (ATVI) has dropped 11% since March 12 over investors growing concern that the massive popularity of Fortnite will pull players away from Activision Blizzard games. We discuss how agile developers like Epic Games are paving the way forward for more fast-paced, innovative, update philosophies that are surpassing the competition at every corner. Bungie’s slow paced update schedule is showing its age and become antiquated in 2018. The old style of development with major updates once every 6 months are just not cutting it anymore as younger studios are taking the market by storm. We will also cover our feedback of update 1.1.4 in regards to both PvE and PvP. Thanks for listening
This week the Destiny 2 Go Fast Update is live with Patch 1.1.4. Bungie is also looking for a contract position that sounds like an endgame tester. Could this position be for The Taken Queen launch this fall/winter? Sea Of Thieves is out and we’ve had some hands on time with the game. It makes for a great initial 5 hour experience but feels like a very unfinished & shallow game past that point. Is the new games as a service model taking over the investment game genre? We’ll also briefly talk about Monster Hunter World & the new Deviljho patch feedback, plus Monster Hunter World is the best selling game in February for both consoles making it the best selling game of 2018 so far. Thanks for listening.
This week we cover the final faction rally of season 2 in Destiny 2. We then chat about Warframe's 5 year anniversary with free goodies for players to collect before March 26. The Division 2 was officially announced and we have some thoughts on the press release. Monster Hunter World is receiving a giant free title update in the next few days that looks awesome, and Battlefront 2 is bringing microtransactions back to the game. Thanks for listening!
This week its all about update 1.1.4 Preview, no more radar in trials and competitive moving forward. Buffs are coming to most weapons across the sandbox along with big movement speed changes across the board as well. Is this enough though to bring back lapsed players? Bungie has a tough road ahead between now and Expansion two. Thanks for listening to this week’s show.
This week we go over more details of update 1.1.4 arriving in a few weeks. This update will bring sandbox tuning, rotational PvP playlists, and more. Iron Banner 6v6 will be introduced shortly after, which will be Control but with some game tuning adjustments with 6v6 in mind. Will 6v6 be chaotic on some of the smaller maps, and will the sandbox changes address the communities concerns with the TTK of Destiny 2 PvP? Nightfall scoring has been launched and of course cheese was discovered and utilized. Thanks for listening to this week’s show.
This week we cover the new Nightfall Scoring Emblem system with Auras, score thresholds, emblem variants, and more! Mods 2.0 has been delayed beyond Expansion 2 unfortunately but there are some elements moving up in the development timeline such as Rumble. Rumble will be returning to Destiny late March but as a weekly rotational playlist. The Destiny community is left in an odd spot as Bungie shifts large scale improvements further back on the timeline. On the one hand we want to see these features implemented in an effective way, but on the other hand player's patience has run dry. Thanks for listening and have a great week guardians.
Should Destiny 2 have been a sequel? For months the community has been discussing the concept of Destiny 1 vs Destiny 2. This week we cover the february faction rally, the main changes coming to the event, new weapons and more. We'll also dive into a readers question that digs deep into the idea of the consequences of a sequel, and the expectations associated with them. Thanks for listening and have a great week guardians. Join the DTS Discord https://discord.me/destinytheshow All the links and sources can be found at https://destinytheshow.com
This week we break down the new Nightfall Scoring system coming to Destiny 2, complete with challenge modifier cards, new timing mechanics, emblems, auras, and more. We will also go into detail with curated raids explained. This new high end raid activity will each week bring forth a curated prestige mode raid with load out restrictions, modifiers, and tweaks to make the experience fresh more challenging and to keep players raiding. Whether it is a Raid Liar, the Leviathan Raid, or new raids this new activity sounds like a great idea. We’ll cover Crimson Days and the new crimson days rewards plus how they are earned. Finally we’ll close with the Activision Blizzard Q4 Investor earnings call which gave a lot more insight into the state of Destiny 2 than what listeners expected. Thanks for listening.
Mods 2.0 has been pushed back until May, as has the start of Season 3. We can assume as well that DLC 2 will be releasing in May alongside the launch of Season 3. Timelines are the focus of the discussion as the pace of Destiny 2 renovations are quite slow unfortunately. Prestige Eater of Worlds will also release in May which begs the question, did the second Raid Lair get delayed to sometime this summer? The ball is in Bungie’s court, hopefully they can find some ways to score soon.
This week we talk about the epic raid reward updates coming this week plus the new masterworks armor system. Honestly this is the best TWAB of Destiny 2. If Bungie can keep supplying updates and transparency like what was seen in this week’s blog post then the ship can be turned around for Destiny 2. Iron Banner returns this week with positive changes to the reward economy. The raid reward overhaul details not only positive changes but a fantastic long term pursuit for raiders to engage with the Leviathan and Eater of Worlds every single week. Bungie addresses the shader issue head on and concedes the point that the community wants unlimited use shaders back. Bungie talks about exploring methods in which we can achieve a better state of shaders, either with the return of unlimited use, or a kiosk that will help with the mass delete issues present currently. Anthem has been pushed back to 2019 in an attempt to polish the game further, and a CNBC article on Destiny 2 urges vigilance from investors in regards to Activision Blizzard due to Destiny 2’s recent community reception. Thanks for listening!
This week we recap the Faction Rally from this last week, token farming lockouts had a negative impact on the event in tandem with a new exotic ghost shell being sold for almost 3,000 silver dust from reverse that helped increase drop chances of faction consumables. Mods 2.0 is supposedly releasing in February, what could the system bring to the table and will it be a step back in the right direction? Thanks for listening!
This week we unpack the Bungie Dev Update. After the long winter break hiatus Bungie returns to detail the next steps they have planned for Destiny 2. It seems by the time we reach Fall 2018 a lot of positive changes will arrive. But the players have to ask themselves, is it too little too late? Most of these features returning are elements that existed in Destiny 1. Its going to be a long road just to get back to Destiny 1 standards. However these are the steps necessary to improve the game. Should Bungie have adopted an all hands on deck approach, was that even possible in the first place? Thanks for listening and have a great week guardians!
Is Crimson Days returning? Items in the database now show the small crimson days emblem, will this old valentines day event make a return? Bungie returns from their Holiday break, the community eagerly anticipates to hear what they have to say. The future of the franchise hangs in a balance and the next 2-3 months will be very indicative as to what the next few years have in store for the game, its player base, and the success of Destiny long term. Best of luck to Bungie, here’s to hoping that they can come up with some solid solutions quickly to the problems plaguing Destiny 2. Thanks for listening. https://destinytheshow.com/
This week we talk about how Destiny 2 needs a complete makeover akin to The Taken King & Age of Triumph during Destiny 1. Eververse costs skyrocket as community creators tabulate how much real world money it would cost a user to acquire all the items in the Eververse, simply put it is absurd how expensive these items are. The PlayStation Network showed a page detailing the alleged specifics regarding Destiny 2’s second expansion Gods of Mars. Will this release in March as the listing suggests and what does Bungie need to do between now and then to fix Destiny 2? Thanks for listening!
Eververse frustrations grow as the Dawning winter event delivers 50,000 silver dust worth of items just two weeks after Curse of Osiris placed 100 new items into the Eververse store. The community pushback has been swift regarding the negative effect Eververse is demonstrating on Destiny 2. Christopher Barrett of Bungie delivers some promising news though in regards to solid changes coming in 2018. Time will tell how the rest of Destiny 2 pans out but one thing is certain, if it continues in the direction of eververse priority than engagement will continue to fall. Thanks for listening
The Dawning returns to Destiny for the 3rd time and brings with it Snowball Fights, Mayhem Crucible, and lots of Eververse loot boxes… Just weeks after the release of Curse of Osiris which already brought 100 items into eververse, we have yet another micro transaction fueled event. However this time you can purchase the armor you want outright with bright dust. Throw snowballs in strikes to stun and damage enemies or hop into Crucible to experience mayhem for the first time in Destiny 2 PvP. It does leave us wondering though, how long until we get rumble and playlist selection back into the game? Thanks for an amazing 2017 and for supporting DTS throughout the year. Have a great holiday and a fun week throwing snowballs.
Bungie Update On Prestige Activities & how Bungie plans on fixing the vanilla locked content. We detail our Curse of Osiris feedback and anticipate Update 184.108.40.206 which brings with it masterworks weapons, quality of life changes, a nerf to the Prometheus Lens, and Bungie’s new activity changes regarding prestige and seasonal activities. The Infinite Forest dances with massive potential but unfortunately misses the mark. However some small changes could make the Infinite Forest a great endless Horde Mode if executed properly. Thanks for listening!
The State of Destiny 2 Bungie blog post revealed a great deal about the future plans for Destiny 2 and acknowledged the poor communication Bungie has displayed since release. Are the changes outlined however enough to satisfy the community or are we just seeing a parade of old Destiny 1 features being brought back into Destiny 2? Ranked PvP is coming 2018 which was the biggest announcement out of the bunch. We’ll go over the Bungie podcast, the new Destiny 2 Free trial, how to get the mentor of light emblem, the release of Curse of Osiris, required hard drive space for the expansion and more. We have 3 new Destiny The Show clans, we heard your requests and have created new clans to help continue to grow and expand. Thanks for listening, have a great week!
This week we talk about Bungie caught throttling XP gains in Destiny 2, in response Bungie has removed the XP cooldown but in the process has really slowed down acquisition of Bright Engrams. The community reaction has been strongly negative as it seems like Bungie only addressed the situation after getting caught. Additionally we talk about the Crucible Radio developer interview with Jon Weisnewski and Claude Jerome which gives clear insight into the segmented nature of Bungie development. We learn about the intentionality behind the decisions regarding fixed roll weapons, more simplistic class perk tress, and the decision to go 4v4 across the board. Thanks for listening and have a great week!
Can Raid Lairs actually work in Destiny 2 or will this end up being another Crota's End, a very short raid more like a strike. The first Curse of Osiris reveal stream has concluded and things are looking alright, but it's hard not to get Dark Below vibes when IGN and PC Gamer have discussed the campaign length being only around 2-3 hours. The biggest question we have is what main quality of life changes are arriving in Season 2 and can the live team do enough to bring back the sea of lapsed players?
This week we discuss the new reset time which has North American content creators excited. More details on the first Clarion Call of Destiny 2 that will allow you to grind up some more XP before Season 2 arrives. ME Chung from the social team gives an update on Guided Games and social features, most notably guided games will finally be available to full clans. The Curse of Osiris reveal streams begin this week. An Italian IGN interview sheds further light on the Infinite Forest, Mercury Social Space, and new patrol activity. Thanks for listening
This week we cover additional details coming out about The Curse Of Osiris expansion arriving December 5 for Destiny 2. We·ll talk more about Bungie·s first procedurally generated playspace the infinite forest, the new level cap and new power cap coming with Season 2. What does the phrase ·new raid content· actually mean, will the Leviathan be following us around for all of year 1 Destiny 2? The Faction Rally returns with some tweaks and its the first time PCplayers will get the chance to pledge to their choice of faction. Finally we·ll briefly cover the Activision Blizzard Q3 investors earnings call. Thanks for listening!
The Curse or Osiris Expansion trailer was released yesterday and we have a ton to talk about. From the new Mercury playspace, the infinite garden which features a procedurally generated environment, to the new cinematic story missions featuring the mega lore character himself Osiris, this is looking to be an ambitious DLC. We’ll also cover the PC launch, the unfortunate Ban situation which was not handled smoothly by Bungie. Then Chris Barrett joins the TWAB for some awesome communication about what the team is working on. The quality of life improvements Chris shares bodes very well for the future of Destiny 2 and that type of transparency and communication from Bungie is what the community craves. Thanks for listening!
This week the Destiny 2 PC launch is finally here, welcome new PC guardians to the world of Destiny! Tons of great news happened this past week in the form of the Seasons announcement stream. The Destiny community learned about the new quarterly update system that brings with it a new season every 3 months. With these updates come new gear, quality of life changes, shaders, ships, sparrows, gear, The Dawning in Season 2, and a whole lot more. Finally we have a roadmap of an update schedule outside of the normal DLC launches which feels good as a player. Communication is key, and the more Bungie can share with the community openly and honestly the better. Thanks for listening to this week's Destiny The Show
This week we talk about Baby Bumper Calus, yes you can knock Calus off of his throne platform. The Prestige Raid has gone live, don’t do the Calus exploit however as it will nullify you for world first. Cosmo in this week at Bungie shares with us that the developers are reading our feedback on endgame but don’t have a plan in place yet for trying to improve it. SC Slayerage put out an amazing post regarding Destiny 2 feedback that we recommend all of our listeners read. Links on our website. Thanks for listening and have a great day!
This week we talk about the Endgame controversy that was stirred up by the Friendgame comments at the end of the TWAB. The Destiny The Game subreddit began voicing criticism of Destiny 2’s current endgame progression loops (or lack there of). We’ll touch on the new Iron Banner which is live now. The Prestige Raid delayed due to a raid glitch in the Calus room that causes no enemy adds to spawn during the Calus fight. Bungie’s Christopher Barrett asked the community what they would like to see added in Destiny 2 ’s first expansion. The pillars of community sent back some great feedback and suggestions. Thanks for listening
This week we explore the Prestige Raid gear, how it looks, and will ornaments return to Destiny 2 at some point? Jon Weisenewski Senior Designer at Bungie joins the TWAB to talk about the popularity of the Mida Multi Tool and what they are doing moving forward regarding balance. Ditty and Dragoon don’t think we’ll see any formal balance changes until November and December, we really hope they balance PC separate of console as well. Then we talk about guided games and how it has failed to deliver a positive experience for most users. What can Bungie do to salvage guided games, are there ways they can incentivize and fix the big problems? Thanks for listening!
We talk about The Leviathan Raid and how it is the LFG Destroyer. The Leviathan Raid is straight up epic, is this one of Bungie’s best raids? We’ll talk about the new Trials of the Nine gamemode, whats changed and what has remained the same. Competitive matchmaking tweaks are underway as Bungie changes matchmaking parameters and settings. Next week the new Faction Rally event begins, what lovely gear will it bring with it to Tower 2.0?

Bungie fights back against cheating at streamers’ expense, the restrictions placed on the upcoming Destiny 2 PC Beta and full release will make streaming Destiny 2 more challenging for streamers who don’t have a capture card or multiple PC setup. Our hope is that these restrictions do in fact help mitigate cheating in Destiny 2 on PC, but community members are not please about this decision, as it has left even experts at OBS & Xsplit confused. Thankfully the DLC for Destiny 2 on PC will not be delayed whatsoever and will release in unison with the console versions of the Destiny 2 Expansions. More Destiny 2 merchandise is coming to the market as the release date for Destiny 2 draws closer and closer. Thanks for listening this week to Destiny The Show!
