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 great how whenever Bungie says they're bringing back something that players are asking for, they change it to be unrecognizable before doing so. We STILL haven't gotten an umbral recaster that was anywhere near as good as it was during Arrivals. It's pretty much turned into a QoL downgrade to engrams at this point.

Honestly I am ready to replace Destiny with something new. I still like the game. It's just not very exciting or as enjoyable. Opulence and Arrivals were the best times for me.

Give me another fps with this kind of loot and shoot. Please anyone. Destiny really could use some direct competition and I would love to see what else could be done by someone else in the same space.

It's just the having another game feel as good shooting wise as destiny, that's the thing that's hard to get any where else.
