Bad news: Loot cave to become less efficient (40 second respawn rather than 6)
Good news: Lots of "fixes" that shouldn't have been issues to begin with. I like that they add their perspective as developers to the choices they made on the features we've instantly bashed
The loot cave patch was needed, a lot of people are going to be unhappy about it but there are still a lot of ways to rank up without it.
The only problem I see with todays patches is the nerf of the shards you get from dismantling legendary gear from the queens missions.
If you dismantle legendary gear you get shards, thats how it works. To nerf that is essentially changing the rules of the game in the 3rd quarter and it just seems like an amateurish decision by bungie.
I'm sitting on 6 legendary queens helmets and 8 legendary queens chest pieces that are pointless since I get no reward for dismantling them.
They're now pretty much pointless. Why should I do them if it's gonna give me the same helmet/chest armor over and over again?
