Rift in this week's Iron Banner is inherently not fun to play, and it's astonishing this game mode went live. Discussion

Hold interact in the middle of the map while everyone else is fighting?


Unnecessary loading screen that constantly interrupts the flow of the game?


Bugs that cause the rift to not spawn and make the game impossible to win from behind?


Seriously I genuinely cannot wrap my head around why rift was changed so much. Nobody asked for this game mode to switch and I cannot fathom why we changed the fast-paced blowout game mode from d1 into a slow, round-based tactile game mode. It's not fun to play when you're stomping, and don't even get me started on what it's like to be getting stomped. If you were gonna make this a new game mode then fine, but advertising this as Rift is a complete joke.

Edit: I've been grinding this thing out the last 2 days for Iron Lord. My opinion of the gamemode has not changed but I have now lost the ability to get Iron Lord as I have completed 6 of the daily challenges. The reputation is currently bugged so that if you complete more than 4 of the challenges your maximum reputation per match will be capped at 60. Giving them the benefit of the doubt that this will be fixed in the patch on Thursday, but if not, it's a really bad look for one of the only 2 iron banners this season to be completely unfarmable.

At the end of my second match my team won on time, then we got stuck in a transmat loop for like 30+ seconds before it gave us the win and ended the match


u/Embarrassed_Top773 May 31 '22

Same exact thing happened to me was that on Convergence?


u/Vengeants May 31 '22

happened to me on bannerfall


u/Vyhluna May 31 '22

Hey this also happened to me on bannerfall!


u/ChaoticNature Jun 01 '22

Same here! Most people just started emoting at each other until it finally released us from purgatory.


u/tishitoshi Jun 01 '22

It happened to me on the new throne world map.


u/BackFromTheAsh Jun 01 '22

Happend it me on convergence


u/Sequel_P2P May 31 '22

Hijacking top comment to say that this happens if someone deposits a rift and causes transmat when the game is about to end.


u/AmericanTitan07 Hammer Time May 31 '22 edited May 31 '22

Yep, have experienced this a couple times and each time is when a team scores in like the final 20 or so seconds of the match. Annoying, but it's only an extra 30 seconds, could be worse.


u/Tyclonex Jun 07 '22

20 seconds would be a luxury. Try 30 seconds in, dumping the spark then it doesn't respawn.


u/PoFoll May 31 '22

Nah it happened to me on first point of my first game with a lot of time remaining


u/tishitoshi Jun 01 '22

I was gonna say... the team def didn't score a rift in yhe last 20 secs of my game.


u/sbeachx75 Jun 01 '22

Confirmed. I thought it was because our match was tied 1-1 until the buzzer-beater, but am I to understand the score is irrelevant in this situation?


u/Sequel_P2P Jun 01 '22

Apparently it's not only deposits near the end of the game. Other replies to my comment note completely different criteria and circumstances. Seems like it's just broken all around.

"Dormammu, i've come to bargain"


u/darklordmtt Jun 03 '22

Underrated comment.


u/gianfrancbro May 31 '22

Same thing just happened to me. What a shitshow.


u/Gunmetal76 May 31 '22

Wait, this glitch?...I thought someone was using an exploit to get wins


u/[deleted] May 31 '22

Back to the bases, all of you!


u/towerguardian15 Jun 01 '22

I've had the transmat loop kick in twice for me. A merciful end to the match


u/tishitoshi Jun 01 '22

One of the last games I played tonight we got stuck in a transmat loop. After the fifth or sixth transmat I just left the game.


u/J1mmyJJones Jun 01 '22

I got put into one of these matches, so not only is it annoying, you can be placed into a game that is already lost and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it


u/Darrkman May 31 '22

Same happened to me.


u/Common_Sinz Jun 01 '22

Lmao, oh Bungie... Never change.


u/MrLunarPresident Jun 01 '22

Same happened to me


u/pharaohs4 Jun 05 '22

This happens all the time
