Bungie Preview Update 1.2.3 For Destiny 2

Update 1.2.3 for Destiny 2 is a little way off and won’t drop until July 17th but we do have a preview of the changes coming courtesy of Bungie.  Supremacy is being removed from Quick Play, I know a lot of people don’t like it but it was my favourite mode, and Rumble joins the playlist permanently.

There will also be a Prestige difficulty for both the Eater of Worlds and Spire of Stars raid lairs. These will use activity modifiers and a new system of curated loadouts which means you can only take certain types of weapons in to battle, for example  Auto Rifle/Submachine Gun/Sniper Rifle or Scout Rifle/Hand Cannon/Rocket Launchers. That sounds hideous to me, my Guardian is specifically set up to be a Auto-rifle, rocket launching tank, I don’t have any buffs for other weapon types.

Here are the Crucible changes coming next month:

Crucible Playlist Update
  • Quickplay
    • Increasing player configuration to 6v6 and updating the playlist description
    • Removing Supremacy from the pool of available game modes
    • Control
      • Updating Control win score to 150
      • Control Zones will initially be neutral
    • Clash
      • Updating Clash win score to 100
  • Competitive
      • Bomb Fuse timer in Countdown lowered from 40 seconds to 35 seconds
  • General
    • Rumble will become a full-time playlist
    • Supremacy will be added to the weekly featured playlist, updated to 6v6, and have a win score of 150
Crucible Ranks Update
  • Players will be able to earn Valor rank from additional playlists:
    • Competitive
    • Crucible Labs
    • Iron Banner
    • Trials of The Nine
  • Joining a game in progress will protect your Valor Win Streak for that game
    • If you lose: No penalties incurred to your Valor Win Streak
    • If you win: Valor Win Streak increases
  • Players will be matched using their Glory rank
    • This means your opponents will be of similar rank to you
    • The higher you climb, the tougher the opponent
  • Glory Loss Streaks will be re-tuned to be less punishing over time
    • Consecutive losses will decrease the Rank Points lost instead of increasing
    • Streaks will still cap out at 5
  • All Rank Streaks will no longer reset once they hit their cap

    No mention of the ridiculous over abundance of power ammo in the crucible sadly. Ah well, the changes they have listed are all good though.
