Destiny 2 Faction Rallies Start Soon, Guided Games and More


GameSpot has word that the first Destiny 2 Faction Rallies event starts on September 26th.

Quote:
Weapons tied to factions have begun to pop up in Destiny 2, but things will soon become much more involved. Bungie previously revealed that something called Faction Rallies would begin on September 26, but we had no idea of what those would actually entail. The developer has now provided details on how they'll work and what you can get by participating.

Faction Rallies are a special event that kicks off with the weekly reset on Tuesday, September 26, at 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET / 9 AM BST and runs until the same time on October 3. All three factions return from the original Destiny--Dead Orbit (represented by Arach Jalaal), Future War Cult (Lakshmi-2), and New Monarchy (Executor Hideo)--to task players with "gather[ing] supplies for their faction and destroy[ing] enemy resources." This is done by simply playing the game--you'll choose one of the three factions to align yourself with and then earn Faction Tokens by completing public events, Lost Sectors, Strikes, or the Raid, or by playing Crucible.
Destiny 2 Guided Games: What You Need To Know Ahead Of Launch

Quote:
One of the new features coming to Destiny 2 is what Bungie is calling "Guided Games." This is where a solo player can group up with a higher-level players to help learn the ropes of end-game activities such as Nightfalls and Raids. The Guided Games feature officially rolls out on September 26, but it's been available for testers for a little over a week now in beta form, and Bungie has now talked about how many people tested it out and what it learned from the beta.
Destiny 2 Known Issues List Includes Clan XP Bug And More

Quote:
Starting off, the limited-time multiplayer event, Trials of the Nine, was disabled at the wrong time this week. Going forward, you can expect it to run from 10 AM PT on Friday until Tuesday at 2 AM PT. Another issue Bungie is aware of and working on is that Clan XP is not always being awarded upon completion of public events. Bungie said it's also aware of a problem where Clan Engrams are not given to members. One note Bungie provided is that you can't earn a Clan Engram if you quit a clan and join another one before the weekly reset.

Additionally, there is a problem with Destiny's microtransaction store, Eververse. Players are experiencing delays in receiving Silver after buying it through errors such as "Silver Sync Pending" and "Query Failed."
Destiny 2 Going Offline Next Week, Here's When And For How Long

Quote:
Starting at 6 AM PT on September 25, players won't be able to sign in. At 7 AM PT that day, everyone who is logged in to Destiny 2 will be kicked off. The maintenance period is scheduled to run until 12 PM PT, so all told, there will be interruptions for around six hours. That's if everything goes to plan; there is always a chance the maintenance period could wrap up sooner or, as was the case last time, take longer.

I tried the Guided games thing and no one else ever showed up. It is still no substitute for a true matchmaking system for the Raids and Nightfall missions. I'm not sure why they seem to reluctant to just add what should be kind of a given. How long has WoW had in-game matchmaking for Raids? A decade?

Let's form a raid team some time. We should have enough members in the clan by now to do this! So let's do this! Woo!

What's our clan, I would like to join. I only ever completed Vault of Glass in Destiny 1 with some PSNTrophies clan that seems to have booted me probably because I immediately stopped playing Destiny for 3 years after finishing that raid because it was so intense. Would like to try again with Destiny 2 I have the Deluxe Ed. Thanks for considering me.

Granted it will take me weeks to get up to the required light level, so if some kind souls here will help out by then with a replay since you will be old hats by then, would be amazing.

I happened to grab mine on the 2nd week's Nightfall which was not all that difficult beating with 5+ minutes left on the clock. In fact I had some friends that did it with over 9 minutes left.

This week's Nightfall is complete ass when just being played as a regular strike. Add in the modifiers and the clock and you have a potential controller breaking evening ahead of you.

Are all Nightfall events timed? Timed events suck.

I get bored with Destiny 2 after about 20 minutes of play now. I'm too burnt on the gear leveling system from the first one.

The shooting mechanics and players movement are top notch. I just have no desire to grind for lame gear.

The official Evil Avatar Clan is here!

I'm always up for grouping. My fireteam setting is open to friends and clan drop-ins, so anyone is welcome to drop in at any time if I am fireteam leader. Or just invite me and I'll be happy to come along, regardless of level or progress. I am always happy to help!
