Bungie: You'll Never Have To Ditch Your Destiny Guardian

We heard it many times leading up to the launch of Destiny: Developer Bungie has a massive 10-year plan for the game.

And they're not kidding, either. In a recent GamesRadar interview with Destiny engineering boss Luke Timmins, we find out that avid players will never have to make a new character or switch to another one.

Doesn't matter if they produce more expansions or a sequel or whatever. Said Timmins:

"We certainly take it seriously that Destiny is a ten-year thing. It's a long-term thing and with these adventures that we're adding my contract to you--and any player--is that your Guardian will always be there. We're going to keep adding new stuff for you to do and I'd hope you'll look at The Taken King and be like, 'I'm looking forward to logging on again and hooking friends online.'"

That's certainly good to know. Given the sheer number of hours some players have invested into building up their Guardian, it would really suck to tell them they had to start over, regardless of the game's lifespan. Speaking of which, don't forget about that huge expansion, The Taken King, which is set to arrive in September. Bungie says it's so big, they think of it as a whole new game.

So, how long do you plan on playing Destiny for?

I'll keep playing Destiny for as long as it stays entertaining for me. I have no idea how long that will last.

I sorta see why a Bungie didn't have matchmaking for weekly nightfall strikes. The average gamer on there may not be smart enough to hack it.
I wasted hours last week with guys through matchmaking that never bothered to equip a weapon, secondary or heavy, that complements the damage burn type. Last week's strike was void based burn. Essentially every team I was matched with either went into the strike knowing they didn't have void damage or were completely oblivious to it. You'd think when they saw the death screen stats with me around 145 - 245 kills in the Archon Priest fight alone while they're all below 100 would've tipped them off. Like "hey, why does he keep getting so much kills and rarely dies?"
Yea. It's not the skill it's my legendary void damage shotgun. I'd message them if I could but the game appears to block in game messaging.

Definitely think some peoples intelligence is lacking on the weekly - amount of times I saw people rush enemies spewing out void based damage (basically minotaurs and hydras) only to get wiped out almost instantly. If they had paid attention to the modifier they'd realise that thing will 1-2 shot me.

I terms of how long will I play destiny, same as temjin - as long as I find it entertaining. Managed to get rumble matches going last night between 6 of my clan who were in party chat, was great fun, and allowed for different rules to be applied.

I'm in shock after me and one other good matchmade guy took out the archon priest nightfall strike by ourselves. It was actually easier playing with only one other partner who knows what they're doing opposed to two idiots who don't.

I believe in matchmaking for nightfall. There are tons of people who need help and I dont mind it one bit.

Yeah i think they should offer more "matchmaking only" lists. Especially for the stuff that is more difficult like trials, nightfalls or POE. i think Trials could be more fun if it was matchmaking only, so no parties, just luck of the draw every map, if your good enough you will persevere, this also gives people who don't have alot of friends who play the game a chance to experience the endgame content. I don't mind helping people one bit, i constantly get random invites from people in the tower for raids or strikes and always help if i'm available.

Considering the game was rather small to begin with there's not much they couldn't produce that wouldnt be similiar in size. I'll continue to keep playing as long as they keep supporting it. But I won't go all in on every piece of dlc as soon as it releases. In just a matter of hours you can be finished with the last two pieces of dlc and that's just not enough time to make it last until the next dlc release.

I don't consider grinding for hours and hours to get one item as part of the dlc either. That's just poor design and I just couldn't include it in total game time to finish and be satisfied.
