Each year, there is a new drama related to Destiny 2 and the developers of the game, Bungie. This year (2023) is no different, as Bungie started laying off some of its employees.
These employees had a serious role in the development of the studio, and this backfired, as fights between different employees and users of Twitter (X) commenced.
Former First Raider and Bungie Account Manager (Hippie)
One of the former first raiders who helped recover the account started going after the account manager of Bungie, known as DirtyEffinHippy on Twitter (X). Below, we have the conversation from Hippy himself.
In response to that, former first raider “Slap” had a tweet mentioning the struggles of dealing with Bungie, because they had to pay him. The response from Slap is as follows.
Why is Bungie laying off employees?
Checking out the response above, it is clear that Bungie started laying off employees who were doing “Paid Account Recoveries” for individuals.
But, since laying off is totally on the shoulders of the company, the individuals are left out of this. Thus, the community backfires on the company, instead of checking out the details of why they are doing that.
Account Recoveries of banned individuals
Account Recovery of the individuals who were banned for doing some unlawful things is prohibited. Thus, whoever, from the company goes ahead and personally gives back the account without proper notice is in the red area.
Bungie’s Destiny 2 Drama – Laying Off Employees Justified or Not?
Bungie is crystal clear about their terms and service, from the player’s side and also the employee’s side. Thus, whoever tries to break the terms and services to get paid is a criminal.
All in all, Bungie Laying Off Employees is simply justified, as the employees were breaking terms and services by unbanning the banned accounts while being paid for that. That’s all in the Bungie’s Destiny 2 Drama.
