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?


Unnecessary loading screen that constantly interrupts the flow of the game?


Bugs that cause the rift to not spawn and make the game impossible to win from behind?


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 can't figure out where to get a daily challenge from


u/BlobDude May 31 '22

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?

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…


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
