Destiny 2 Disabling Artifact Power For Trials Of Osiris After Fan Backlash
The original Destiny gave players the ability to take each other on in a 3v3 Crucible event called Trials of Osiris, pitting players against each other in elimination-style matches consisting of multiple rounds. The Trials were also unique in that light levels made a difference in each game, as those with higher light levels had a small advantage over others. The game mode was impressive and intense, but when it was revealed that it would be making a return for Destiny 2 complete with light level advantages enabled, fans were a little less excited for it. Now, the developers have revealed that they’ll be making some changes to the upcoming Crucible event.
The issue fans have with the upcoming event has to do with seasonal Artifacts that, in essence, remove the normal power level cap within the game. Those who are able and willing to spend hours upon hours of grinding PvE content would most certainly have an advantage over others in Destiny 2’s Trials of Osiris thanks to their highly increased power levels. This could potentially ruin the experience for those who may not have as much time to spend working through their artifacts, and many fans have expressed their concerns throughout multiple social media outlets.
Thankfully, the developers have announced that they’ll be disabling the Artifacts for “Power-enabled PvP” such as Iron Banner and Trials until the developers are able to come up with a solution that makes the gameplay fair across the board. Destiny 2 director Luke Smith recently posted a Tweet explaining the situation and claims that the developers will go into a deep dive on just how power levels will affect PvP content later down the road.
We will be disabling the Artifact for Power-enabled PVP (Iron Banner & Trials) until we can implement a Power Cap feature.
This cap will allow us to weave Artifact and Power Pursuit together while preventing unbound Power growth in PVP.
