5 years for me in December, 8 on B.net in October.
i checked bungie and my account is 9 years old, here it's almost 5
i tried to post a comment on off topic for old times sake and i cant even do that. says i gotta reach a certain point in destiny 2
The forums were being spammed with "Remove Eververse" because they were displeased with how Bungie were handling microtransactions. Literally several pages in #Destiny2 were nothing but requests to remove Eververse. Those who were spamming obviously got banned and so they started making alts because of how fast and easy it was. The requirement to reach the Farm in Destiny 2 made it so the spam would stop, as the process to make an alt would now take around 30-40 minutes instead of 10.
The low iq retards spamming the forums of course accomplished nothing, and fucked over a majority of the older users who had not played the game but were still sticking around in Offtopic.
