Destiny 2 – Why I sided against the Drifter

I know it’s been mere days since my last post about Destiny, but as of yesterday, the next story step of the Season of the Drifter became available. One that is pretty unique as far as Destiny content goes, in that to forces you into making a permanent choice between two factions. (Warning: this post contains me droning about Destiny Lore)

This choice is based around a growing unease between the Praxic Order of warlocks; a sect as traditional as a guardian can get, and the Drifter; everyone’s new favourite roguish scoundrel.

Destiny: Year 1 as a Guardian

The first year of Bungie’s supposed 10 year plan for Destiny has been somewhat shaky for us: the faithful guardians. In the 12 months since the game’s release there have been ups and downs, but if I had to describe Destiny in any way; I’d call it a redemption story. But maybe I’m overstating it, because to some it’s been a battle. A constant back and forth between the players and the developers of power creep and rebalancing.
