After deactivation Fate 2Trials of Osiris mode last weekend due to an exploit, Bungie announced Thursday in its weekly blog post that it is keeping the state offline indefinitely as it continues to investigate the issue.
Last week, a win-trading method that has been around for some time exploded and Trials players all over the world started winning their way to Flawless. Here’s how it works: Players equip certain emblems to show that they are games to win with the other team; the two Fireteam leaders throw virtual dice over chat; and the winning team joins the fight on the characters they want to win with, while the losing team smokes out of the fight. Do it enough times, and the guardians who only come in when their Fireteam leader wins the role get a free ride to the lighthouse.
It is an extremely complex and complex system; you can watch Destiny PvP YouTuber Aztecross explain the bug in more detail in the video above. It is currently unclear how long it will take for Bungie to resolve this issue. But as Aztecross points out, it feels a little silly at this point to disable game mode to keep the integrity of the trial after a full year of violent cheating.
In other news, Bungie urged players to try the 12-player raid bug that is currently in Fate 2and said the studio is in no hurry to fix it. Bungie noted that because the activities in question are not intended for 12 players, things can get a little weird. The study said it would correct the mistake before Grandmaster Nightfall’s return on March 16, presumably to maintain the integrity of the rewards coming from them, like the Conqueror title.
Bungie also announced some polls in the community where players can choose between a new dinosaur-themed armor set or a movie monster-themed one.
Later this year, during Fate 2‘s Halloween stand-in, Festival of the Lost, Bungie will sell a new armor set for Silver (real money currency) or Bright Dust (in-game currency used to buy cosmetics). Silver-or-Bright-Dust armor sets are pretty common for holiday events in Destiny, but this year, players get to vote on what they want.
The first option is a set based on classic movie monsters. We have a hunter dressed as Godzilla, a Warlock dressed as the creature from the black lagoon and a Titan dressed as cyclops.
The second set features some dinosaurs looking for Guardians. There’s the hunter in their raptor armor, Warlock in theirs Triceratops armor and Titan in their T. rex armor. Based on the initial internet reaction, it looks like the dino set is winning this voice in a landslide.
Fans who want to cast their vote – to either help the dino secure victory or restore balance by voting on the movie monster set – can complete Bungie’s survey. These armor sets are likely to appear in the game between September and November this year.
