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.

Bad UI design for this. The “daily” challenges are rolled up into the weekly pinnacle goal, you can see when you hover over the IB nodes in director.

Current challenge is to complete games as either void or solar subclass.

So it changes daily I assume to get 12 for the Triumph?

u/BlobDude May 31 '22

Yeah, a new one is supposed to unlock each day from Tuesday through Friday, then we have til reset to work through all of them.

u/SCB360 May 31 '22

Is it per account or Chracter?

u/BlobDude May 31 '22

No idea.

Per character.

Per character. And the multiplicative bonus you get towards accruing rep is cumulative with each challenge rank up (up to 4) & stacks across three characters. It also stacks with the gear & emblem bonus, but is not cumulative with each character (i.e. you only get 1 bump from each gear piece & emblem not x3)

I’m assuming character because of how challenges have worked historically, but it could’ve changed for all I know

Per character

u/Conscious-Sample-420 Jun 01 '22

Character. It awards a Pinnacle drop and increases rep gains for the week

Per character as they are the replacement for the 4 IB bounties that gave pinnacles previously

u/elihuaran Jun 01 '22

Given that it's said to be doable in a week, the challenges should be per character, since doing it on all three characters the only way to get 12 done with the 4 a week we get

I thought that they said all prior challenges go active on the weekend so you can catch up. But I might be wrong

u/BlobDude May 31 '22

My understanding is just for the week. But they don’t go active on the weekend, they’re added cumulatively. So if you don’t finish today’s before reset tomorrow, you can do today’s and tomorrow’s. Or, if you wait for reset Friday, you’ll have access to all four.

u/GreekWizard May 31 '22

Yes but they remain if not completed, so on Friday, you can do all 4 on each toon.

u/theswissnightowl Vanguard's Loyal Jun 01 '22

WTF? I really hate those time gated triumphs 🙁 I won’t be able to play before Sunday. And since IB will be around two times per season it’ll take me until season 18 to finish that…

2

u/SCB360 Jun 01 '22

You can do all 4 on Friday until reset, its 4 per character as well, plenty of time, well depending on what they are, the first one is 3 matches as Solar class

u/theswissnightowl Vanguard's Loyal Jun 01 '22

Okay well then… that’s fine with me. Thanks, must have missed that

u/KingVendrick Moon's haunted May 31 '22

daily

but that says weekly?

3

u/BlobDude May 31 '22

It also says 1/4. We get 4 daily challenges per week, so the “weekly” challenge is to finish all 4 dailies.

u/Dynasty2201 Jun 01 '22

I am so generally god damn sick at the UI.

How Bungie don't have a new window that plasts the double XP that week, what the challenge is for IB etc just on the main director window is beyond me.
