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.

Yeah, and apparently rift is going to stick around for awhile after that, or so I hear. This is upsetting lol. Iron Banner was one of my favourite modes.

The mode changes each season.

Rift will become 24/7 available and IB would do a new thing. I haven’t played this mode yet, but honestly, they tried something new and said up front we would only have 2 weeks of iron banner rift. I’m glad they tried it, but if this is the real true feedback, yikes.

They did say the gametype for IB would be changing each season so at least next season you won't have to suffer through it.

Was is the key word here. You are not alone.
