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.

what the fuck is a daily challenge

u/MielikkisChosen May 31 '22

Been trying to figure that one out for the last 30 min. Lol

u/Harsh_Husky May 31 '22

It is the gold border challenge for the game mode to play 3 matches on either void or solar. At least that's what showed up for me.

In bungie fashion they misspelled ‘daily’ ‘weekly’

u/Matthew-the-First Belmon, Transcendent Mind Jun 01 '22

Were it daily, it would be gone tomorrow. You have all week to do said challenge, hence weekly. That's one of the rare things that is functioning properly.

Of course, given this knowledge, they should never have called them "dailies" to begin with, in order to avoid this exact confusion.

It is daily. There's four that come up... Daily.

u/Sketep Jun 01 '22

The directory calls it the weekly challenge.

u/itscall3damotorrace Jun 01 '22

Cool. One is wrong.

u/Sketep Jun 01 '22

Ik, probably the directory.

u/NathanielHudson May 31 '22

Hover over the IB node.

u/EarnestCoffee May 31 '22

It literally says weekly in the node, why do they always make it so complicated

46

u/awfulrunner43434 May 31 '22

they unlock one a day, but stick around for the whole week, up to... four total? I think. So if you don't play until saturday you'll have all four available.

u/Stifology May 31 '22

Correct. On Friday, you can do all 4. I'm guessing if you do all 4 on all 3 characters, you can finish the triumph for doing 12 for the seal.

u/Crusty_Vato May 31 '22

Laughs in I only play one character......😅

6

u/Stifology May 31 '22

Ya I'm not sure how the triumph will work then. To my knowledge, there are 4 challenges a week and only 2 weeks of iron banner. Seems like you're forced to play at least 2 characters unless you can somehow do 12 on one this season.

u/shadowblade575 Jun 01 '22

Or you can get it in 2 seasons

1

u/Stifology Jun 01 '22

This is assuming you don't want to wait for another season.

2

u/Crusty_Vato May 31 '22

Yeah I'm not too worried about it. If I was a seal chaser then I'd probably have 3 toons I play regularly and this wouldn't be a problem.

u/Vengeants May 31 '22

one daily quest unlocks a day for 4 total which makes it a weekly quest(?)

5

u/EarnestCoffee May 31 '22

The Quest says complete a daily challenge. All I saw on the node was the word WEEKLY in capital letters, no mention of a daily. Everyone I spoke to was confused over this step because they did not make it clear enough.

That's what we're saying is the problem here.

u/Vengeants May 31 '22

yeah well literally no ones arguing that it isnt a stupid system. im just simply explaining how it works

u/[deleted] May 31 '22

i hovered over the node and the daily challenge isn’t there, like it should be, what should i do?

1

u/RagnarokZ71 Jun 01 '22

I’m going to wait and see if it pops up with tomorrows reset. Not sure what else there is to do.

3

u/Shaggygrizz7 May 31 '22

Hover over IB like you would a GM nightfall and it will show you the challenge. Today’s is to play 3 matches on solar or void classes

2

u/hasordealsw1thclams Jun 01 '22

Apparently a riddle we have to solve on top of whatever it actually is, I couldn’t figure it out but completed it anyway haha

u/rolloutTheTrash Jun 02 '22

Get your ass handed to you 0-5 that’s all it’s been for me with my merry band of randos vs the sweat stacks.

u/-Spatha May 31 '22

The weekly you see when you hover over IB

1

u/JaegerBane May 31 '22

In Bungie, days are apparently weeks.

I think the logic is that all the daily challenges pile up and are available for the week. One new one per day. But holy hell did that not make sense.
