Bungie Cancels Destiny 2's Trials For Two Weeks Because Of Glitches

Destiny 2's competitive Trials of the Nine multiplayer mode will be delayed for two weeks after a glitch involving emotes allowed players to hide out of bounds. SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT... IN TWO WEEKS

Earlier this week, Bungie removed players' ability to purchase the "bureaucratic walk" emote after discovering they could could use it to clip out of bounds.

Players who previously bought the emote can still use it, however. In a blog post yesterday, Bungie announced they would be postponing Trials of the Nine until the issue can be resolved.

"As a follow-up to reported incidents of emote glitching in the Crucible, we are investigating a fix that we plan to deploy during the first week of November," community manager Chris "Cozmo" Shannon said.

This is not the first time Trials of the Nine has made changes due to out of bounds glitches. Last month, the playlist changed from kill-focused Survival matches on the Altar of Flame map back to the bomb defusal Countdown mode on Eternity. Players on Altar of Flame could score kills against opponents before winning a match while hiding safely out of bounds.

As a big time Trials player, this news is a bit of a bummer. Still, it's better than getting outplayed by a ton of Monty Python goofballs glitching their way to victory.


Comments

    typical reaction by the community makes me laugh. Reddit flooded with armchair geniuses saying it ridiculous they cancelled it, because they were too lazy to remove one emote. some players seem to think it went down is like: devs arrive at work have a meeting "now we could just remove the emote and that way our single most popular feature can stay online, nah lets cancel it for a few weeks, the reddit army has been quiet few a few weeks, the community needs some extra salt to shake them up, they will hate but gosh we will laugh and laugh (insert maniacal laugh here)', It cant possible be because technically it is not just the one emote that is causing the issue and it will take time to find and triple check everything
