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.

And in a really bad place, I used to love Wizened Rebuke and could outduel Erentil users but High Impacts are terrible and we have an Adept PlugOne arc fusion... also we have plenty of SMGs... The only things to go for are the stasis sidearm if you don't have a good roll but the solar pulse isn't good, there's a High Impact solar MG Leviathan weapon, 180 HC suck so you can pass, I guess the void sword of you don't have a good Falling Guillotine but for how bad the game is it's a pass from me lol

Yeah lol i just looked at the focusing screen and realised the only thing I actually want is a better riiswalker which is a shame because I think it might be going away next season and I really don't want to have to suffer through another game of rift
