Speaking of Exotics, there are a bunch that I'm super happy to see returning in this expansion! Claws of Ahamkara (imagine a double Devour or Swift Strike melee build), the Armamentarium (double grenades are always a yes), Sleeper Simulant (an Exotic LFR, finally) and SUROS Regime (I don't think I even need to say anything here).
I'm also very excited about the Huckleberry, because we don't have an Exotic Kinetic SMG yet! Gah, May 8th is too far away.
I am hoping that the Young Ahamkara Spine for the hunter gets it's double trip mines back. I
I like what I saw in the reveal , they didn't show everything which is good , I don't understand why they have to bring the hive to Mars , all our enemies are trying to get a foothold on Mars , I guess it's our job to stop them . I looking forward to the new game mode , Escalation Protocol , it looks like a lot of fun !! Come on May 8th!!!
If you recall, the Hive had been trying to get into Rasputin in D1. The first time we met that awful screaming witch was in the warmind bunker. It's not a huge stretch to say they learned something and went to Mars where Rasputin was born.
Oh, we get to fight the Hive ... again ... hmmmm ...
So that makes the conflict count
1 - Vex (D1 Campaign)
1 - Cabal (D2 Campaign)
2 - Fallen (House of Wolves, Rise of Iron)
3 - Hive 3 (Dark Below, Taken King, Warmind)
I'm tired of the Hive. Frozen or not. Frozen Vex would have been more interesting.
Agreed. But I'm still hoping that there is a "new" enemy that we haven't learned about, yet.... The frozen hive are reskins, yes. But they specifically stated a "new" enemy to face. ????

Can you handle the truth...
Let me change this.
I don't think Bungie has conned us. I didn't watch his whole video. But I think his version of conned is flawed. I think Bungie made poor decisions, based on their thoughts and feedback from the community and the game suffered because of it. Did they screw up. Yes. Was it intentional as in ... they conned us. No.
I still feel the same way about D2 as I do about D1. I payed $99.99 plus applicable sales tax for this game.
I have 563 active hours invested in D2.
$100/563 = $0.178/hour played. And I'm still playing.
I have a $60 game that I played 8 hours on and lost interest. $60/8 = $7.5.hour
I know that the Warmind DLC will NOT fix everything. But it's a huge start. Heck update 1.1.4 was a huge win in my mind. The game is getting better. I still enjoy playing it.
