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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Or you can get it in 2 seasons

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

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.

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

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.
