    Yes, and wow I’m not happy as a loyal year one customer :-(
      
    I’m not so worried about not being able to rank up past 34, since I didn’t buy the DLC I don’t expect anything new.
      
    But why am I losing features I love from the last two DLC’s I PAID FOR? 
      
    Quote from above article:

      
    “But for Destiny players who aren’t yet sure if they want to upgrade — or can’t afford it yet — it’s something of a slap in the face to see half the old endgame content suddenly disappear. On September 14, anyone with a copy of Destiny could play a variety of crucible modes or take on the nightfall and weekly heroic strikes; as of September 15, they can’t.”
      
    I never really played crucible, but I did notice I lost Eris and Queen bounties, but I PAID to get access to them, so what gives?
       
    But then I read this:
     

    “Under the old system there would be a new max-level strike playlist that included the DLC strike(s) and without the latest DLC you could not access it.”
     
    “After TDB when the level cap was raised to 32, there was a level 28 strike playlist (I want to say Vanguard Roc?) and when HoW came they gave us Vanguard Dragon, which was level 30. With the base game you could still play up to level 26, Vanguard Tiger IIRC. There was also level 20, 22 and 24 difficulty…. it’s been awhile since I did anything but Roc or Dragon.”
     
    “(However,) under the (new TTK) present system, there are only three strike playlists: Legacy, which is level 20, a middle-tier list which is level 36, and a heroic list which is level 41.
     
    If you have all the year 1 content but not TTK, you only get access to legacy”

     
    Well, I didn’t realize I also lost my Strike playlists too – I really enjoyed play strikes and I knew as a DLC owner I could play some strike lists others couldn’t, but now I’ve lost all but level 20?
     
    Really?
     
    I’m feeling ripped off.

    The more I think about it the more I see a class action lawsuit brewing – really, hear me out…
     
    Destiny promoted the DLC as including new Playlists and Bounties (and Crucible content.)
     
    On the DLC package nothing stated it was only for a limited time, like you only get some items for 6 months.
     
    I that had been the case I wouldn’t have purchased them.
     
    So, seeing as TDB and HOW DLC owners just lost a large portion of what they paid for, I can see a class action suit coming… BUT I hope Bungie restores our Bounties, Strikes, and Crucible content long before that happens!
     
    Come on Bungie, do the right thing and restore the content we paid for!

    My hd is almost full and I’ve been looking for something to delete. Looks like Destiny is it. Had fun, but time to move on I think.

    I can understand not receiving the new weapons, armor, etc. and MAYBE even the level cap but to take away modes, for no good reason as far as I can see, is kind of ridiculous.

    I totally agree – no where on my receipt did it say the content I paid for was only going to be available for a limited time :-(

    This seems to be an angle that is not really getting coverage.  Most major outlets have talked about the positives of the Destiny content, not the losses.  Thank you @OsirisPrime for finding this.
     
    @Greylock3491, I think there is something to be said for Year 1 fans still having access to the previous playlists.  I hope this does get stored.  Any MMO moves on with new content, but old players still have access to older zones.  
     
    I’m glad I have the new content, but I spent 11 months playing just the base game before buying the old DLC in the expansion.  If I wasn’t able to keep playing modes, there would have been no way I would have bought the Taken King.  All this new move does is isolate older players, not invite them back.

    Yeah, if you don’t buy TTK the end game has vanished.
     
    Yes, I can play the story missions and do patrols, but all my Eris and Queen bounties have disappeared, and my several options of strike lists, especially the 28 and 32 levels included with the DLC, have also been deleted.
     
    That, along with the nerfing of the Crucible, just seems like tthose who didn’t buy TTK are being politely asked to leave… finger in the eye for supporting Bungie through year one (with no year one goodies to boot)

    Ouch! What are they thinking?? 
     
    This is going to get ugly, quickly. I know the majority of players ran out and bought the expansion, priced the same as a game, but there are so many people that may have picked the game up for the first time, simply to move up to the expansion because of it. 
     
    This is like Blizzard taking the past DLC or expansions out of WOW… you just can’t take content people have paid for away.
