Bungie’s Holiday Card Cryptarch is a Troll

If you’ve ever found a Legendary Engram in Destiny only to be dispirited during decryption, then Bungie has the holiday card for you.

Community Manager Eric Osborne (Urk) tweeted the following card for all of the Guardians who constantly get ripped off by that pesky Cryptarch:


Upon closer inspection of the Cryptarch’s gift, you can see a small glimmer of green shining out from a crack in the wrapping, indicating exactly what you might fear: that smirking message of “May you get everything you wish for this Holiday Season” is a touch insincere.

My Opinion:

I think it’s great that Bungie can not only laugh at itself, but also at its community’s languish without appearing too cruel. Instead of looking at smaller community complaints as a need for improvement, they use it to build a relationship and a stronger sense of culture within their world.
