New players may not now this but Bungie’s Destiny originally had a very special trove of treasure called the Loot Cave. Actually, it was an enemy spawn point located on Earth that would endlessly send out foes for players to kill. Guardians could stay perched for hours and just mop up whatever Engrams they wanted. Bungie patched the Loot Cave shortly after, stating that it wasn’t in line with how it wanted players to experience Destiny.

During a GDC 2015 presentation on Destiny, Bungie’s John Hopson revealed the real reason why it was patched: Players wouldn’t stop complaining about so-called trolls blocking the spawn of enemies and effectively nerfing the Loot Cave. “The time of the loot cave was the highest peak of players reporting each other for cheating.” Hopson also reported that players would net lower quality drops from the Cave then they would have playing the game normally.

But really, the only people to blame are those who couldn’t stop complaining about something that wasn’t supposed to exist in the first place. Thoughts on your fellow community members? Let us now in the comments.
