Remember these bit of guidance from Guardians4u
Bungie will continue to develop Destiny 2’s player-versus-player encounters later this year, assistant game director Joe Blackburn wrote in a new article. The team aims to remove obnoxious habits like “leerathons” and “buckraking” as well as balance their subclasses, improve protection controls, and redesign the Trials of Osiris incentive structure.
The first thing to do is to remove peeking. The ability “Three-peeking” in the game “Destiny 2”, utilizes knives, and something we have called emote points. When Destiny players take out a pistol and start to use it out of ammunition, or when they pull out a weapon, but not a gun or melee weapon, the game can go from third person to a third person camera perspective. In a competitive multiplayer game, it rarely leads a few individuals to disobey the game rule that forbids players from looking behind them. In Destiny, the third person camera presents players with a lot of knowledge gathered, while supplying them with extra intel on where their opponents are. The three peeking hack (a.k.a. F3) is open to all participants. Bungie did not expect this cheat to be available, nor did they adequately plan about what it could bring to the group.
To fix this problem, said Blackburn, players would no longer be able to take out “third person weapons” (interesting wording, since swords are the only third-person firearm at the moment) if they don’t have ammunition. Bungie can also deactivate the usage of emotes in the competitive playlist and in Trials of Osiris. Players would also be allowed to use blades in these forms. They would only be able to use them while they are completely out of ammunition. Blackburn clarified that this move would take place for Destiny 2 season 15, with a deadline of September 10, which would definitely happen in the fall.
Bungie also plans to balance the Stasis and Light Spider-Man melee classes. Since its appearance in Beyond Light, Stasis has played a prominent position in the Crucible. In Bungie’s view, the active agent in the chemical mixture, for example benzoic acid, is too strong for its taste, too strong for Destiny’s usually welcoming culture, so they can subdued it a little while raising the strength of the underused Arc, Solar, and Void subclasses.

Blackburn clarified they don’t want Stasis to be a “bad” PvE skill when this is finished, they claim it must always be successful.
Cheating is another major concern inside competitive PvP, and although Blackburn did not suggest that SMITE has any built-in anti cheat software, he did indicate that the team is focusing on combatting the problem. To deter unauthorized access to the network, Bungie has scheduled to introduce or increase its protection staff by a total of 2 individuals, and also will survey players to further comprehend the issue. Recently, the studio has begun to pursue legal measures against certain platforms that are promoting and enabling cheating on tests.
As been done on blogs and other unofficial Bungie pages now, “cheating” is just one possible issue among several topics that Bungie is debating with relation to Destiny. Previously when Bungie developers addressed the problem with Polygon, they still replied, “We won’t tell you what we’re doing, so the cheaters have used it and are attempting to change it.”
The Trials of Osiris playlist is the game mode’s key product, but the other modes are not flawless either. Heral previously addressed the move to Trials in Osiris’ “reward structure”, which would see each player earn a special Ascendant object depending on their time in the arena.
The first sentence in this post is pretty confusing. I feel that the easiest way to phrase this is to boost the general health of the trials matchmaking pool by both incentivizing a larger community to participate as well as “better defining” skill tiers. This could mean that players should anticipate a matchmaking method that looks like their ability level relative to other players who are on the same skill level, rather than the pure roulette-style matchmaking in Trials.
The word is that Bungie is going to want to rearrange the prizes in the Trials of Osiris. If anything goes wrong, you won’t be allowed to use your crest again. Normally, players reset if they where to fail, since this ensures they won’t be able to go perfect and earn the greatest rewards. Trials of Osiris’ matchmaking method seeks to match players with a comparable amount of Wins, and considering that the first or second match of each card has a large population, Trials of Osiris matchmaking is more random. Blackburn said that in his perfect environment, players should have an incentive to keep going forward after a defeat — which will also discourage them from flooding the no- or low-win card players.
Along with claiming that solo players might play Trials of Osiris, I’d also like to let solo players solo trials. Currently, the mode allows three individuals to be in a premade Fireteam before it can be initiated.
Trials are characterized as having to do with “nice”, “average,” or “even” playing in order to get what is regarded as a “flawless” replication. It’s challenging to get a duplicate of something simple. This improvements aren’t that precise, but fixing matchmaking concerns can go a fair way toward fixing some of the mode’s key problems.
Think of the previous Crucible improvements as optimistic, given the way players have complained about the Crucible and how high-level PvP has been included on the Destiny 2 Season 2 Playlist. Unlike other big video games that have very little signs of player appreciation, Bungie recognize their customer base and have actively created more content that renders the game easier and more playable.
In its developer blog post, Bungie also confirmed intentions to delete “armor sunsetting”, also regarded by some as “weapon decay”, and declared a wait for the introduction of The Witch Queen extension.
