There was some confusion as far as whether or not your stats amassed in the Destiny beta would carry over into the full game, but now we know that they indeed will not carry over. Phooey.
There was some confusion as far as whether or not your stats amassed in the Destiny beta would carry over into the full game, but now we know that they indeed will not carry over.
"Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game," designer Tyson Green said over on Bungie.net. "The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled. Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the Beta Build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst."
"What you just experienced is something we’ve been through countless times here at Bungie," added community manager "Deej." "We feel your pain, and then some. Making a game requires iteration and progress. When we reinvent the world where the Guardians live, sometimes we have to leave them behind.
"This is the last time we’ll ask you to part with your hero. On September 9th, you can create a Guardian who will keep you company for a good, long time. On a long-enough timeline, you might decide to delete him or her and start over again – but that will be your call to make.”
