Destiny 2’s 1.1.2 patch drops today with the return of Iron Banner

It’s not a major expansion or DLC, but today’s Patch 1.1.2 has a few surprises and treats in store for Destiny 2 players.

For starters, the patch brings back Iron Banner, challenging players to fight each other for some hot new rewards and additional paths to obtaining desired rewards. Then there’s the implementation of armor masterworks to go along with the established weapon masterworks. Players will be able to rework stats on their armor if they’re disatisfied with what they get on their masterwork. And finally, what about some better raid rewards? That’s part of the package, too.

Destiny 2’s game director, Christopher Barrett, has been dropping all sorts of information and keeping the community informed on Twitter as of late. Barrett mentioned that the team is looking to improve the Trials of the Nine, hinted at strike-specific loot, confirmed that the Prestige Eater of Worlds update is still forthcoming, and said that the team will continue to import exotics from the original Destiny.

For everyone i know its been too little too late. Monster Hunter is scratching all the itches and no lockboxes or focus on hollow pvp in sight. They assumed they could coast on the pvp like D1 did.
Trouble is D2’s pvp is bad. Really, really bad.

As a non-raider and non-PvPer this patch doesn’t do much for me at all beyond the addition of masterwork armor. I’m still doing my “log in once a week and clear out weekly milestones then log back out” until some significant headway starts getting made in other areas.

So…pretty much till fall/DLC 2 release, though I’m rapidly approaching 335 with super casual play so may not even keep logging in much longer for milestones.

Yup…. the game will still be on my “havent played since november” list. Glad they are catering to the minority here. /sarcasm

Did they explain how better raid rewards would make any difference in a game that scales to your current gear level? In all honesty I’d like to know. I quit because I realized the whole gear grind appears to me to be smoke and mirrors because whether I was gear level is 235 or 335 I did about the same percentage of damage to the enemies making it all just a cosmetic number to fool me into thinking I made progress.

Yes, they’ll improve your performance in raids, specifically. Which is what the rewards are designed to do.

There’s not going to be standard linear progression in the game, and I doubt Bungie will ever add it as it would undermine most of the design they’ve done thus far and invalidate huge swaths of content.

I still play it, but you can tell the population is low. Sucks to tackle a heroic public event on your own..

The gameplay itself, along with your friends in a strike or whatever, is still really enjoyable.

How many people still play this game on pc? 20-30k maybe, If im generous? This game is an accumulation of everything that is wrong with the gaming industry today.
