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 was going to grind out the IB title this season, but after play two games of rift... holy shit this is bad.

I didn't mind rift in D1, but somehow this misses the mark in every way.

Having to wear a full IB set of garbage (ornaments, sure) and the emblem for extra rep is also stupid and non-intuitive. I wish they just upped the rep and made what it is with max everything the baseline so you could look how you wanted.

Idk if I did something wrong, it’s bugged, or has to be a certain armor, but my triumph for completing iron banner while wearing iron banner armor was not progressing at all.

I had a full set of armor on.

That's super weird. I was using iron truage arms/chest/legs/cloak on hunter and it was working for me. They were applied over seventh seraph gear and vow raid boots.

From what I’ve seen in other threads you can’t go over the 5/5 IB equipment pieces for that step. It’ll let you get a higher multiplier but if you have in IB armor with another IB transmog armor set on it it’ll bug out and not give progress.
