Destiny 2's microtransactions are getting a major shake-up

Destiny 2's microtransactions are getting a major shake-up

Leveling up each time during the event will reward one Illuminated Engram and one Crimson Engram, which the latter will be "strongly weighted" to give players new rewards until all event items have been received. Improvements are also coming for Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, end game player pursuits, additional vault space, and changes to Heroic Strikes.

Bungie says it's making big changes to Destiny 2, in terms of how players earn rewards, how the game's Eververse microtransaction economy works and other aspects of the game that have elicited vocal dissatisfaction from the game's playerbase, in a far-reaching development update. Christopher Barrett, says "We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never meant to be a substitute for end game content and rewards".

The recently added Masterwork system for weapons now extends to armor.

You can reroll the armor stat type on Masterwork Armor, and similar to Masterwork weapons, you can upgrade a piece of armor to Masterwork by spending Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards.

Mazda's $1.6 billion Alabama plant leaves room to expand
US sales of small cars fell almost 10 percent past year as buyers continued a massive shift toward SUVs and pickup trucks. In 2017, the company announced a $10 billion investment in the United States over the next five years.

Raid rewards will also be improved before the end of the month, with a Raid item dropping after each major encounter and an expanded array of items available for purchase through the Raid vendor. We intend to return to creating more Raid and other activity-unique rewards in the future.

Guardians will also get the chance to score "a new Ghost with Raid-specific perks" from the Leviathan and Eater of Worlds final encounters. Barrett explains the scoring system works similarly to that of Destiny 1 but emphasizes "competitive execution of Strike objectives and support for player selectable score modifiers".

"Strike Scoring is coming to Nightfall [Strikes] and replacing the current time limit mechanic", Barrett said. Players felt like Bungie was using Bright Engrams and Eververse to serve as new content, without actually giving players much to actually do. Clan and Community High Score plans are also being made. The mod system will be reworked to "reducing redundant mods, more unique theming, and greatly increasing their impact on your power", though Bungie noted parts or all could be pushed to early Spring due to scope. Lastly, this update will include PC Tower Chat, quickplay improvements, the appearance of Fireteam members on the destination map. This will favor activity rewards over Bright Engrams. Moreover, many felt like Bungie was encouraging players to spend money on Eververse if they wanted to collect all of the enticing Dawning armor and items.

The Spring update focuses on the Crucible with the addition of private matches, a 6v6 playlist, seasonal Crucible ranks, and the Mayhem gametype becoming a limited-time event. "The team is eager to show you what they've been working on".
