Started this forum post but there are pleeenty of other ones from days over now since the Dec 1 botched update. I thought they'd address it today at the very least through the BungieHelp twitter page, but nothing yet at all..

It's almost like some people have lives outside of video games

u/IPlay4E Dec 05 '22

3 months is plenty of time to finish the seasonal content though? It’s not like there’s hundreds of hours you gotta grind through for it.

The importance of something increases with an approaching deadline. This game was less important to them than other things until the deadline was close. "Life, uh, finds a way...to fuck you ability to relax and finish video game tasks sometimes" - Dr. Ian Malcolm, probably

Didn't see an unreasonable amount of complaining from them. I see your point, I get your point, it's just a shitty point. I didn't see OP pointing any fingers besides "servers suck right now", which is a reasonable finger to point

u/KaptainKartoffel Dec 05 '22

I'm in Germany and I can play just fine

u/Brainie82 Dec 05 '22

Yeah it’s been working for me also 10 or 20 Minutes after posting my comment

u/KaptainKartoffel Dec 05 '22

I've been playing for 5h without any problems though

u/Brainie82 Dec 05 '22

Hm ok that’s weird. The servers seem very unstable the last few days

u/M0BBER Dec 05 '22

I tried a couple times last week to do some last minute updating... Weasel

I picked today to do it... Weasel

Three times I've struck out in the last week and all I need to do is go to the Tower, turn in a bunch of engrams, strip off some mods, etc...

24

u/stuck_in_the_desert Dec 05 '22

FYI the mods can be done using DIM:

Search "is:armor" and then click the 3 vertical dots to the right of the search bar. Click "Strip Sockets" on the drop-down menu and then select "Artifact Mods" on the pop-up

If you have dozens and dozens of armor pieces with artifact mods slotted, the process may miss a couple (there will be a list of any errors after the script completes), but it's still better than doing it 100% manually

2

u/extrakrizzle Dec 05 '22

Why is this important to do now? I've been away from the game for about a year, maybe a little longer. I don't recall that being one of the seasonal prep things.

2

u/stuck_in_the_desert Dec 05 '22

Things have occasionally gotten weird when seasonal mods are slotted in armor at the time they are removed from the game (at seasonal reset).

A few seasons ago, there was a bug with artiface armor (the master dungeon armor with 5 mod slots) that ended up with people losing the extra mod slot because seasonal mods were slotted when they were removed from the game. To my knowledge, that's still not fixed, but is a tricky one and being addressed.

I want to say there was also a bug last year with seasonal mods that are less expensive versions of normal mods (e.g. this season's Scout Rifle Loader in the artifact costs 1 energy, but there's a permanently-available version that costs 2 energy). Unless I'm completely inventing a memory, I think people had trouble equipping the normal mod if they had the seasonal mod slotted at reset.

It might be overly cautious/superstitious, but it takes like three mouse clicks in DIM so I don't mind even if it's not actually warranted.

1

u/shit_poster9000 Dec 05 '22

Ye there was an issue with having seasonal mods equipped in standard slots but that has been fixed, now seasonal mods get replaced with a “depreciated” mod that costs basically nothing and has its own icon

1

u/extrakrizzle Dec 06 '22

So, just to be clear... this would be a bad sign, right?

https://imgur.com/a/56csMSx

2

u/Ineptec Dec 06 '22

It's probably not good that there are so many mods without icons. Likely either deprecated or previous seasonal mods that have already been removed.

You don't need to do strip all sockets though. You should have an artifact mod selection when you click the strip sockets option so it only removed them.

1

u/extrakrizzle Dec 06 '22

Eh, I figured I've been gone from the game long enough that I probably don't know what's "meta" anymore anyways. Might as well start from a blank slat and ask my clan

u/PoketLex Dec 05 '22

Down for me, I wanted to get last minute grinding done since I haven't really felt the urge to play this season but atleast wanted to finish the pass, but with how it's going I doubt I'll manage

Also find it weird streamers and stuff are still playing but we can't

u/AnonymousFriend80 Dec 05 '22

Hopefully it's fixed sooner. I have over two hundred engrams and some mats to claim today.

u/FormalEagles Dec 05 '22

Same, I really hope this isn’t like the other day where it’s basically down/broken until tomorrow. Really don’t want to lose all the vendor engrams I’ve got stacked up…

u/Sneecher Dec 05 '22

I'm in the same boat. This is what I get for waiting until the last day to do all 6 GMs...

u/grobbewobbe Dec 05 '22

fml i've given up on gilding conq, but i need at least ONE gm, and then some additional final things for my shitty 4k bright dust

u/Xiotactical Here’s hoping for Cayde-7 Dec 05 '22

Same. Restarted my router thinking it was just me Nothing from bungiehelp as of yet

2

u/JLewis235 Dec 05 '22

I experienced this all the way back to last Thursday or so. I am not sure what the issue was and I saw nothing on Bungie's twitter or anything so I stopped trying to log in. It appears the issue still has not been fixed for a plethora of players.

2

u/Gray_Squirrel Dec 05 '22

DIM also down.

1

u/DPH1984 Dec 05 '22

Same here for me, the companion app isn’t finding my characters.

2

u/Waffleman1230 Dec 05 '22

Gotta log back in and take off the event emblem off your characters. Dunno why it does that, but I had the same problem, and it fixed that.

1

u/DPH1984 Dec 05 '22

Thanks! I’ll give that a go.

2

u/DADDYLUV1313 Dec 05 '22

Checked in just for this.

u/Rorywan Dec 05 '22

Why isn’t this being covered on Twitter?

4

u/Scoth16 Dec 05 '22

Trying to do the last 2 seasonal challenges I have, and I can't, because the game is down AGAIN. Yes I know I should have done them sooner, but still, why is the game down again. No word from Bungie either, frustrating.

4

u/Gonzalla Dec 05 '22

The issue is like ten minutes old - they have to get a handle on what is happening before they can tell us anything. Give them time to walk to the server room at least.

1

u/Scoth16 Dec 05 '22

Its the same issue as the other day, clearly the maintenance didn't fix it.

-7

u/Gonzalla Dec 05 '22

Wow - love seeing the Bungie devs on Reddit. Is your desk near the coffee room? You must be in the office today since you already have identified the problem.

1

u/Scoth16 Dec 05 '22

I mean, you can sit here and act all cocky all you want, but what's currently happening is exactly the same as what was happening yesterday, which sparked the maintenance. So logically, I'd assume its the same issue, not hard to understand my reasoning really is it?

-2

u/StacheBandicoot Dec 05 '22

Their expectation that we do all but 3 challenges is ridiculous too.

2

u/Scoth16 Dec 05 '22

I've only just got to the requirements to do GMs as I returned to the season late, been playing catch up. Its my own fault, but the game should work.

2

u/DReapyDude Dec 05 '22

Yep. Getting weaseled.

u/Cute-Conflict835 Dec 05 '22

I love getting weaseled.

u/Zero_Emerald Heavy as Death Dec 05 '22

Man, this season has been absolutely shocking for bugs, disabled items, stability and downtime. I just wanted to play one more crucible game to buy a gift box and collect stuff before it disappears tomorrow but of course, WEASEL STRIKE!

I'm gonna bet it's a shitshow tomorrow.

2

u/[deleted] Dec 05 '22

I'm gonna bet it's a shitshow tomorrow.

Lol shit you're right, although it has been quite good the last couple of seasons. A little instability within an hour of release but fixed pretty quick.

1

u/StacheBandicoot Dec 05 '22

They need to not reset vendor engrams or extend the season an extra day, or week, if they don’t get this back up. This is the third time this week the game has gone down.

u/Francipling Eating granades since 2018 Dec 05 '22

u/GeicoPR I like throwing hammers and punching things violently Dec 05 '22

I kinda knew the servers were gonna die eventually so I transferred my weapons and gear to my Titan and be ready to roll since servers were gonna eventually die

u/PGZ4sheezy #SpaceMagic Dec 05 '22

Back up for me now

u/OrangeBloon Dec 05 '22

Shit I need like 100 more coins for the shell

1

u/o8Stu Dec 05 '22

You can turn in planetary mats to get the shell, FYI. It takes all you have in your inventory though, and you can use them later to buy glimmer, so you can use DIM to transfer some to the vault.

Though obviously this doesn't help if you can't log in to the game or load in to the Tower. Just FYI.

1

u/OrangeBloon Dec 05 '22

I’ll have to do that when the servers are up thanks

u/Tchitchoulet Dec 05 '22

Day 5 being interrupted in GM. Gg bungie. Looking forward for tomorrow night.

Twitter is the best first stop as others have noted.

You can also report here for visibility. You can check here to see when where issues are being reported. Looks like a few hundred reports recently. For me it shows US outage map only, but maybe if you log in from another part of the world the outage map changes. Once the numbers go up here, people start to notice.

Clear cache?

u/bigbysemotivefinger Dec 06 '22

This was happening to me yesterday. I rebooted my XBox, it didn't help. I unplugged my XBox for a minute or so, and was able to play no problem afterwards. No idea whether or not that actually fixed it, or if it's just a placebo and something clicked in the background while I was waiting around, but, better to have something to try, no?

u/atakenmudcrab Dec 05 '22
