They weren't under the influence of Activision when they made Destiny or started Destiny 2 IIRC
I think Activation started to influence bungie around the time the first dlc for destiny dropped. I think Activision was ignoring the humblings of Bungie up till then becasue the game sold well at the start but around the time the first dlc hit is when the commuinty was pretty much ready to rip bungies head off and DLC sells numbers kinda reflected it. I think a lot of it has to do with Bungie not knowing what to do with the game and creating with an egingine more finiky to program for then Bethesda's.

The worst part is if you want to play the original WC3 you have to install the Public Test Realm and even that requires Internet to run.

Pre-ordering is charity. That goes for pre-ordering any game from any company. You're not buying something, you're giving them a gift and hoping they will give you one in return. If you want to give charity to a large corporation then that's your business but realize what you're doing first.

Believe it or not back 20 years ago if you didn't preorder a popular game, you wouldn't get it on release day, and sometimes you'd have to wait a month for the second print run. I don't disagree that there is no point in preordering today now that digital content has removed scarcity from the equation, but it was totally legit back in the day.

For some niche games, even today if you buy physical, if you didn’t pre-order or have the luck of a god, you wouldn’t ever get a copy.
