You can actually see the leg buckle after it sets down.

Was it too rough a landing? Were the joints/welds weak? Or were they weakened by the landing jets themselves?

IMO this wasn't a failure really. Their objective of landing on an ocean pad was a success. Right on spot from what I saw in the video.
