I really hate how the industry has repurposed the meaning of Open Beta from "we want feedback to help us find the things we missed" to "here's the game two days early because you paid for it already"

I really hate how the industry has people paying them to test their software. With any other kind of computer software it's the other way around. But hey, people seem to want to do it so more power to them. Though, I can't believe the quality of the feedback is all that great. That's probably why many games are such buggy messes upon launch.

Paying for QA shouldn't be optional, but the game industry seems to think that it is and fans have short memories anyway so why not?

Having a good time with my friends on the strike and PvP. If the first story mission is any indication of how the rest will be for PvE I'm excited! Also the scale of the Strike is huge and I hope they are all like that.

The pace in PvP is a little slower(TTK in PvP, ability cool downs, etc..) and I'm digging it. Also each match isn't a super and heavy weapon fest like D1. You have to plan when to use them and it makes for a more intense, team focused experience.

I personally like being rewarded for supporting a game I love. So yeah I'm OK with buying a game early(because I would buy it day 1 anyway) and getting some reward in exchange(early access to beta, content, etc.). It's win win in my eyes.

As for QA I agree with this to some degree however it depends on the game. A game of this scale needs to run in the wild to truly test it. The sheer amount of people and resources it takes to run Destiny is more than a simple in house QA team could handle. Much less really push it to see what would happen under real stress. So why not use the fan base to do it? Fans get a taste, designers get results, and the game is better(hopefully). I think the feedback is pretty solid. Games like Destiny will have trends in forums that will scream what is wrong and instantly give designers feedback on what they should look at.

I'll screw around with Destiny 2 for a bit, if you're getting rid of an extra code that may or may not exist.
