I had like 2 paragraphs explaining, but I'll keep it short, it's definitely better than yr1, but anybody can make a game better than that trash. I think overall it's a decent game now, not the best, but not the worst either. I definitely have some fun playing now.

It's terrible in my opinion. Though I kind of brought it on myself since I pre-ordered Destiny with the white PS4 console. Did a lot of Crucible matches and the daily raids. Purchased the expansions. Had a lot of legendary and exotic equipment that's now useless in TTK, haha. Even won a Gjallarhorn in one of the raids, now the weapon isn't the most sought after anymore. I really didn't want to spend more money getting TTK so now my game is kind of just sitting there. Last I checked you need it to reach the new cap lvl. 40 and all daily's/raids had been blocked until you purchased TTK. Haven't kept up with it lately, so I don't know if they're re-opened anymore. Understandable since it's ran like an MMO.

You have to ask at some point. Is it worth all the money? The prices are steep for little content. That's my thoughts on it anyway.

Better. Economy wise I still think exotic shards are stupid gates. Getting marks isn't an issue and you get plenty of alternative loot so you don't have to spend it all on vendor gear. Gear progression is definitely better. It's easier to get to raid level to start raiding. Raid loot is bad, but CM gives guaranteed good loot. Gunplay wise it's still a masterpiece, but crucible balance is wonky right now. The cosmetic microtransactions are a good idea. Also so I can grieve whenever the cryptarch rips me off exotic engram wise (3 of coins +++++++++great!) and do the carlton on the corpses of my foes.

As far as gameplay goes, it's ironed out most of the kinks.
Event wise, IB is good, races are good, but a good PvE event is still missing.
There's a plethora of quests to do and several mini-side events on the dreadnought.
Content wise it lasts quite a while. If you haven't put in 10 hours a week since launch, chances are you still have at least something to do. For active players like myself, the fact that the expansion lasted 3 months on its own was pretty substantial.
Boss design is improved. It's more than just shooting a giant enemy.

I like Destiny. It wasn't very sophisticated and was sort of messy at the beginning. House of Wolves was a bit of a bore but The Taken King has been worth the leap. It's definitely been a rollercoaster ride for those playing since day one. I get why they would lose interest. Maybe I'm die-hard over crap gaming but I like the improvements.

I really only pop in for trials, but the challenge mode gets my interest too, well.. Up until I beat Oryx tomorrow and am shit out of luck until every weekend

beat ttk storyline and that was pretty much it honestly. haven't played it since and even when I was playing it I wasn't sure why I even bothered with ttk pack. it was pretty clear that there might be a new level cap and new weapons but it was going to be the same wash and repeat sort of thing for any expansion. if your going to keep the older armor and weapons around, why do you make people who already have them have to do more work to update them. its a slap in the face and I had no want to take it repeatedly.

I think it's far better than it was in year 1 but I still run out of fun things to do far too quickly. The Sparrow racing league was fun for about a day, but I haven' t played it since. I just have too many other interesting things to play to stick to something like Destiny. To top it all off, when I DO decide to hop back on, I usually catch up to all the daily players within a couple hours. That being said, when they bring in something new, I'll return for a week or so.
