Sometimes it feels like for every new item about Destiny and its features, there are two news items about players breaking or circumventing Destiny’s intended mechanics.

I imagine this must be rather frustrating for Bungie. After all, this is all very much a learning experience for them. While no doubt they had to manage their fair share of Halo multiplayer balances and bug fixes, it must be a different breed entirely to have thousands of players battering a single encounter from countless angles and strategies.

Though I do wonder how much of this desire to fudge the game’s mechanics comes from a simple human nature (“give me what I want with as little work as possible”) and how much is a result of the ongoing perception that Destiny’s end-game is still a harsher-than-necessary, arbitrarily-padded loot treadmill (“I have to exploit because doing it the normal way doesn’t seem fair”).
