The Destiny faithful who don’t yet have access to the Destiny 2 beta, will probably be spending their time playing the original Destiny.

There’s also another group: people who used to play Destiny and are just curious about the weekly changes. Whatever reason you have for reading the weekly reports, you can count on them to have information on the new Nightfall, Heroic playlist modifiers, featured raid, and the rest.
