Destiny’s new expansion creates a headache for non-buyers

Destiny players are flocking by droves to upgrade to the new Taken King expansion… but what about those who decided not to jump on board? It turns out that Bungie is making life quite difficult for those trying to stay in the old content.

Players without the expansion have found themselves locked out of parts of the game that are now under the umbrella of The Taken King. This means that the core game population can’t access heroic strikes, nightfalls, or many tiers of PvE and PvP playlists that they used to enjoy. Gear vendors are also locked, as is the ability to select a level when accepting a mission.

To make matters worse, Bungie never gave its community a heads-up that they would be locked out of this content if they didn’t upgrade.

You and I are never going to stop or convince MOP from sourcing Reddit. Instead, I take the information they source on a case by case basis and judge from there if it has merit or not or something in between. Most of stuff has been of merit. I guess they know how to separate the wheat from the mountains of chaff there, even when I don’t appreciate the medium because of the chaff. What can I say?

DestinyPlayer SwiftlyJonathan Quincha You’re trying very hard. I mean, I think online games should just make xpacs mandatory, but when they pretend that they aren’t going to force you to do it…it shouldn’t be that hard to defend them.

To be more specific. Using Reddit as a news source was considered a joke, not so long ago. We also flamed MMO companies for using Reddit as a “cheap” communications outlet vs official forums.

I am not sure what was said that turned this conversation into a “hive of depravity”. Must of been something Bree cleaned out and I missed out on all the fun. /not :(

Non-expansion folks have access to the strikes individually and on the level 20 Vanguard Strike playlist but Bungie pulled the scaled playlists which is a bummer. On the other hand it was exceedingly easy and fun to rip through strikes and get needed upgrades.
I ran through all of the abandoned content before doing the Taken King. This got me to level 40 and about 200 light from dropped engrams.
If folks can’t afford Taken King I understand, but then you pretty much abandon the right to whine.
I am not a fan of them taking away content I paid for but this is the first RPG/MMO that I have played which irrevocably changed the game world to match the progression of the story and I kinda dig it.

jackofrost Estranged Someone pays for the tokens, at a premium.  

Yeah, I have a twink level 20 as well. However, I don’t expect anything else.
