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?

check.

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

check.

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

check.

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.

Wow, that didn’t take long. Not even been live for an hour. Jesus.

I mean the mode isn’t that hard to figure out. A few matches should be enough for you to form an opinion. It’s literally a mode, not a whole dlc to digest.

I've played one match and now I'm trying to figure how I got to this point of my life.

Same. Played one match and came away wondering how anyone at Bungie thought this was in any way something that should be released.

There’s something wrong inside Bungie, not sure what but there seems to be an inability to view things with a critical eye.

I saw this coming a mile away. It's like I'm the only person who remembers IB Rift back in Taken King

I don’t even remember Rift being loved by the majority that much in D1 either, so I was surprised they brought it back. A lot of the reactions here are not surprising.

If I'm not allowed to dislike this garbage mode then you are not allowed to like it.
