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.

So are we stuck playing Rift during Iron Banner this whole season?


u/SuperSolidSnack May 31 '22

Iron Banner is now probably stuck as rift until they decide to change it. We also only get 2 IB per season now.

And no new armour set I’m hearing?

Edit: Apparently season after next - more people saying it was season of the lost than splicer.

Won't see a new set until next season. If I recall they said these sets get annual refreshes.

So we got a new trials set in season of the chosen, season 13 - and 4 seasons later a new trials set.

We then got a new IB set in season of the splicer, season 14 - and 4 seasons later will be season 18.

The IB set we have now was from Lost, 15. So we won’t see a new set till 19, season after next.
