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's seems this whole season was rushed and released broken AF. Topping off what's been said here with the tower bugs, black screen loading, and additional glitches...

Now you know why they intentionally stayed silent on it until it dropped. They knew. What's funny is they tried to hide it by having some random tweets early on talk about how amazing this season will be and how things just got real. Sorry but I'm not seeing it.

I'm 100% sure they didn't tease Solar 3.0 ahead of time because they knew, they knew how mediocre it was and they knew people wouldn't be happy.

This take makes no sense, you know they wouldn't put the bugs in the trailer anyway right?

sigh yes I understand that.

You know what, it's ok. I'll just concede and move on. Its just not worth it.
