In a surprising bit of news, a Destiny player has hit level 30. Doesn't sound all that staggering does it? Well, it's kind of a big deal because apparently it's not the easiest feat in the world to achieve, and you have to exercise quite a bit of skill and fall into a bit of luck to achieve the Holy Grail of level 30.

Eurogamer spotted the update from some tweets sweet out by a gamer going by the handle N3ac3y, where he let loose on social media the following comments.

According to the Bungie database for Destiny, N3ac3y was the first to hit level 30 after pouring plenty of time into the game and leveling up three characters. As noted on the database entry...
“Across all 3 of his Hunters he has spent a total 107 hours 15 minutes and 22 seconds leveling to 30. About 25% of that time was spent in the Crucible while in the Vaullt of Glass he took 13 hours 6 minutes 40 seconds, died 251 times, killed 2008 enemies, and performed 504 precision kills.”

It's pretty crazy, but this guy has been playing quite a bit to achieve that score. He received a bit of flack over on Twitter because a lot of people felt as if his achievement of hitting level 30 was simply because he was playing the game as if it were a full-time job. Let's be honest, that's kind of the price you have to pay to achieve that kind of thing.

According to Eurogamer, Destiny has a soft level cap of 20, but with the right kind of dedication and gear, you can boost yourself high above that level.

I haven't played the game so I can't really say exactly how difficult it is to hit level 30. However, Gaming Blend's Pete Haas managed to get some time in with the game, in fact he's the one who reviewed the game. What did he come away with? Well, the game is like three games rolled into one, aiming to achieve greatness but settling with mediocrity.

Destiny is a hard game for me to get excited about, and everything about it reeked of being average and samey. But that's just my impression of it. Obviously, if people are racing to hit level 30 it must be doing something right.
