After disabling Destiny 2’s Trials of Osiris mode final weekend due to an exploit, Bungie introduced Thursday in its weekly blog post that it’s conserving the mode offline indefinitely because it continues to research the problem.
Final week, a win-trading technique that’s been round for a while exploded, and Trials gamers all over the world began win-trading their technique to Flawless. Right here’s the way it works: Gamers equip sure emblems to point out that they’re recreation to commerce wins with the opposite group; the 2 Fireteam leaders roll digital cube over chat; and the profitable group rejoins the match on the characters they wish to win with, whereas the dropping group backs out of the match. Try this sufficient instances, and the Guardians that solely pop in when their Fireteam chief wins the roll get a free journey to the Lighthouse.
It’s a particularly advanced and convoluted system; you possibly can watch Destiny PvP YouTuber Aztecross clarify the glitch in higher element within the video above. It’s at the moment unclear how lengthy it should take for Bungie to repair this situation. However as Aztecross factors out, disabling the sport mode to maintain the integrity of Trials intact after a full year of rampant cheating feels a little bit foolish at this level.
In different information, Bungie inspired gamers to try the 12-player raid glitch that’s at the moment in Future 2, saying that the studio isn’t dashing to repair it. Bungie did notice that as a result of the actions in query aren’t meant for 12 gamers, issues could get a bit bizarre. The studio stated it should repair the bug earlier than the return of Grandmaster Nightfalls on March 16, presumably to keep up the integrity of the rewards that come from them, just like the Conqueror title.
Bungie additionally introduced some neighborhood voting, the place gamers can select between a brand new dinosaur-themed armor set or a film monster-themed one.
Later this 12 months, throughout Future 2’s Halloween stand-in, Competition of the Misplaced, Bungie will promote a brand new armor set for Silver (real-money forex) or Brilliant Mud (in-game forex used to buy beauty objects). The Silver-or-Brilliant-Mud armor units are fairly frequent for vacation occasions in Future, however this 12 months, gamers get to vote on what they need.
The primary risk is a set based mostly on basic film monsters. We’ve bought a Hunter dressed as Godzilla, a Warlock dressed because the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and a Titan dressed as the Cyclops.
The second set options some dinosaur appears to be like for Guardians. There’s the Hunter of their raptor armor, the Warlock of their Triceratops armor, and the Titan of their T. rex armor. Based mostly on the preliminary web response, it appears the dino set will win this vote in a landslide.
Followers who wish to solid their vote — to both assist the dino set safe victory or restore stability by voting for the film monster set — can fill out Bungie’s survey. These armor units will possible seem in-game between September and November this 12 months.
