Today thousands of gamers around the world met in Destiny 2 and then spent like a solid hour waiting and waiting and waiting for the game’s first big live event. Eventually, something happened.
A big ship was destroyed. It took a long time, it wasn’t very exciting until the end and a lot of people were disappointed by the whole thing.
However, it wasn’t all bad! A lot of folks gathered together and had fun with emotes and posting about the event on Twitter. And because the whole thing took so long and was a bit late, it meant a lot of people on the internet had time to react. This took the form of a lot of jokes and memes.
Before the ship was destroyed, there were a lot of jokes about waiting…

After the ship was destroyed, the jokes and criticisms continued to flow like low-level engrams.
It’s cool. But if it starts at 10am PST… it should *start* at 10am PST.
Grace period of 5 minutes. These things are like a concert. The show starts regardless of audience members not all being there. :b
Buddy of mine had to go to work because it took so long.
