    Well this is a really shitty move by Blizzard to be honest, the one true thing we could always trust in is the quality of the games provided on the battle net and now it's just reduced to been another EA Origin platform full of potentially awful games such as this rather low end PC port. Disgusted.

    really? why would that trailer encourage me to play a game that seems like wow -- and perhaps many other such games? there doesn't seem to be anything new or inspiring based on that trailer.

    REALLY??? REALLY??? No, for real.... REALLY???
    You gone downhill so much you now becoming nothing but a steam game copy, where other games non-blizzard gets to get in on the launcher.
    REALLY???
    Is Activision that hard up on selling their games they now abuse Blizzard name and good launcher by adding crappy non-blizzard games
    Then truly... battle.net is nothing but a steam copy and a bad one at that.

    "I'm so fucking pissed at you now Blizz!!! I don't really know why, but I am going to pretend that I am and grasp at any straw like usual!! (while I still secretly love WoW and continue financially supporting the company and games I supposedly dislike)" - vast majority of people commenting.

    Always facepalm the comments about Blizzard being FORCED by Activision to put this up. Seriously. This is good for both Activision AND Blizzard, and they're technically the same company but different divisions. Like how stupid can you be.

    Oh, so you've played the PC version of Destiny 2 from start to finish and have experienced everything it has to offer? Surely you have, otherwise you wouldn't be making such claims, right? Right?

    Money. Anything else we need to cover? I don't think so.

    I'm pretty unfamiliar with the first Destiny. Does it have a subscription fee? if not, then I'll likely give this one a try eventually (not crazy enough to go there "early access" or fresh launch, I bet there'll be a billion bugs and inbalance issues at launch). If it does have a sub, then meh, pass.

    To be fair...

    So they couldn't justify the investment for dedicated servers, even though D1 made plenty of $$$ and D2 will likely rake in plenty as well, and every other game in the Blizzard/Battle.net launcher has dedicated servers?

    Yeah, sounds like a quality game already. P2P networking hasn't been a massive issue with other games like For Honor at all.

    While I can't argue the fact that it's absolutely retarded that they don't have dedicated servers for PvP in this day and age..........no dedicated servers =/= bad game. Especially when PvE is such a huge part of Destiny (and that's what the vast majority of its playerbase does most of the time) and generally doesn't have any issues in this regard.

    I see what you're trying to do here though. But you're gonna have to do better than that for it to stick.

    I actually haven't played D1. I was just looking forward to D2 (I'm primarily a PC gamer). Researching Destiny's P2P implementation reveals a lot of videos that look scarily similar to my experience with For Honor. It's just disappointing is all. From what I've read it seems like a lot of the changes for D2 are mainly about slowing the action down to help compensate for the P2P issues (also not a good sign).

    I was excited to try D2 out but the P2P news has certainly tempered that excitement. I'm also not sure why there isn't better matchmaking or cross-platform play (at least for PvE).

    Destiny 1 was console only and didn't require subscription to play on single player mode. Although to play and group up with friends for dungeons/raids u needed to have PSN or Xbox Live subscription. Idk how they'll handle it being a PC port, most likely the same way Overwatch is... just a 1 time fee with micro transactions in-game for cosmetics

    After watching a few videos on Destiny 2 - after having played D1 for a while, especially after it got revamped and better via Expacs - I'm probably out.
    It looks the same, "feels" the same, sounds teh same - even dungeons are the same. It should have been a DLC I guess, but marketing wise it's a good move. A lot of app users will at least try it out and that's what they'd want.

    Now the P2P move is cheap, ofc. But seeing how D1 is usually just single player PvE with some minor grouping (when doing strikes, pvp or later mini "raids"), it should be okay-ish. Still a cheap move, but hey.

    In no way. The only thing they share is that you point at things and shoot them.

    First of all IT IS NOT YOUR LAUNCHER. It is Blizzard's Launcher. They will and can put anything on it. You are complaining about 1 game. Let me up you one.

    I dont play, HoTs, HS, SC, Diablo or OW. However I never went into a forum whether official or unofficial and complain about I see games on THEIR Launcher that I have no Effing interest to play.

    "Oh they better not have a cross promotion." So what if they did, it is not a big effing deal.

    Lastly, it is a smart move on Activision to put their game only on Blizzard's App, they are not sharing profits with other online stores.

    If this is not a move to inherently, and eventually, turn Battle.net (Which is called the 'Blizzard App') into Activision's choice or go-to for any future release I would be partially surprised. Honestly, the Blizzard App is an alright client and definitely a conduit for any kind of game because of it. To be quite honest, it was either this or a Steam release -- and I think Activision is MORE than happy to allow Blizzard to host the front end of re-directing things for Destiny 2.
