    GrandMoffMatt got a reaction from BlodVargarna in Why Can't You Be Better?   
    I quit playing because the playgroup in the area was tournament focused only in the game shops.  That wasn't what I wanted to do, and that was my call as a consumer of the product.  I did attempt to garner a casual group of just pushing around ships, but there were no bites.  It ended up more tournament only in all aspects.  The local meta for play style wasn't something I wanted to invest in, so I divested myself of the product and the game.
    I certainly don't hate those players for that choice.  It wasn't my idea of what I wanted.  I think the only issue I get is that either side of the argument is less valid then the other.  They're equally valid concerns.

    GrandMoffMatt got a reaction from FrogTrigger in Team Covenant weighs in on if the game is dead.   
    Personally, Team Covenant is right to discuss this.  They have a vested interest in the health of this game considering how in they are on it.  It is in their best interest to promote the game.  Whether or not they have an inside track on information, or have a rather huge allocation of product is the subject of hearsay and rumor.  
    I stayed on the forum for the community, but I am on my way out of the game.  I do not have a lot of faith in the distribution of product from FFG (my opinion), and I REALLY do not want to pay the prices the game stores in my area are going to charge.  I'm also in an area where a tiny handful of players have locked down the product, so in reality my only options are paying overinflated prices to even remotely compete.  Not doing that either.  Again, my choice.

    People aren't allowed to complain, share an opinion, etc.  That's the takeaway I have been able to gleam since the announcement was made by FFG.

    GrandMoffMatt got a reaction from Babyblue in The last print? WTF FFG   
    I dropped both Destiny FB groups because of the negative attacks on me personally for voicing my concerns.  I think at the end of the day, there are more people that want to play than there is product.  And Supply and Demand being what it is, that prices many of those folks out of the game..  People want to play now, which admittedly isn't going to happen without a lot of generosity, and $$ for the current pricing scheme.  The attacks on these folks on a personal level?  Really?
    I had an argument with my LGS owner over pricing.  I know for a fact they will never sell packs at $2.99 again after the announcement, and that is their right.  That said, the same three people pretty much have a lock on the product as it comes in.  It's also my right to determine what cost point is too high for me to play, and to decide whether or not to patronize the store.  To some here and elsewhere, that makes me a baby or worse.  Fascinating.
