Every mmo has its annoying parts and this is one that bugs me a little bit too. They put a jetpack in so I guess they just wanted to give it a place by adding verticality to the world but have ended up going overboard a little bit.
I don’t think that makes it shit at all though, the game feels solid to me and I’m very much enjoying it. Raid is out today and I’ll no doubt give that a shot.
Bungie just need to keep the content going for this, if it gets stale then I’d expect the player base to beat the scalability pretty quickly and drop out.
