Isn't it meant to be seen as separate from ordinary PvP crucible and marketed as being tournaments for the best to participate in to show off their skills and see how they match up against each other?
So, why not make Iron Banana and Trials of Osiris a LEGENDARY GUN ONLY tournament?
The exotics can still be used in regular crucible, just not in event based tournaments in the crucible.....
I'm half decent in PvP and I hate the easy kills afforded to average/below average players by guns like Thorn, Vex, Hawkmoon, icebreaker, Gjallarhorn etc.
IMHO, anyone who claims to be a decent player doesn't need overpowered weapons to get cheap ass kills. It's too easy!
Each exotic should have been designed for specific one/two use only scenario's. Not the equip it once and never change loadouts, like EVER, clusterfuck we have now.
I often see posts saying "Bungie should fix this/nerf that" and i often see responses by
Constant patches and still broken..... Not a good way to instill confidence!
