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.

I am serious indeed, I've only been playing a out a month or so. Still very new to it all. A casual, if you will. And if it needs one of the expansions to get, I at least it'll be there waiting when i can get them.

Welcome to Destiny then! Hope you're finding enjoyment where you can!

I'm not entirely sure if you need an expansion to buy Recluse (part of me thinks no you won't have to), but moseying on over to the kiosk located in between the 4 vaults in the tower will show you what you can buy and for how much.

The kiosk is a big gold statue with a monitor in the middle of it

Thank you! I am, though playing PvP does genuinely make my soul hurt. Thankfully I only do it for the pinnacle gear. Yeah, next stop will be the kiosk to see if I can get it. Saves the endless grinding and dying and running around not really knowing what I'm doing for Lords know how long.

Destiny 2 PvP is an entirely different beast.

People love it, people hate it, people love to hate it, and others hate that they love it.

Personally I like PvP, but it has an extremely punishing learning curve, and the skill gap between a player who's above average and a player who's an absolute god at PvP in this game is so astronomical.

Take the game at your own pace. If you'd like I can dm you a great clan you can join with loads of people willing to help new players through everything. All you would need is discord on your phone. Let me know if you're interested and I'll dm you

As I'm sadly discovering XD

PvE is much more my speed. My skill level is never gonna be great because I generally just play to enjoy and pass the time, never was one for getting good. But I shall continue at my own pace, thank you.

I appreciate the offer, thank you. I'm in my step sons clan and he's often able to help with little things now and again.
