The understanding of Sparrow racing

Greetings from the Awesome Red Headed Titan Wanted to share my thoughts on The new Event, "Sparrow Racing". This Event, being the key word, is a pass time event free to the public who wanted it to exist. Its a fun distraction to the Grind and shooting world that destiny is. As an event it serves four purposes. The first one is to provide a unique experience of racing your prized sparrows. People asked for it and now its there. You may not be for it, others might now play for long, some will play it while its here. Destiny is responding with this update to let people enjoy a dream they had since vanilla. This Event is like the POE (Prison of Elders). Some liked it and when you played it you earned high light gear that was attuned towards the arena. This provides New sparrows, Shaders, and gear with high light and perks for both battle and sparrows. Yes, the perks for sparrows effect you while on it, not you in the event. The second one is to give new bounties. These custom bounties give you a challenge to strive for to earn More glimmer and experience for your hero. It even has missions/tasks that are given out to players to add to that feeling. Goals to strive for can range from completing a lap in 3 minutes to placing in the top three 5 times. My first task was to kill taken and taken Ultras while driving. They are fun and not to hard to complete, as long as you continue to race and check back in. The third is to give out new loot and items with a certain kind of leeway. When you partake in a race you are simply trying to finish three laps on a day/night cycling map. You can race to try to take first, or you can just try to learn the track or even just ride with the group. Once the player in first passes through the finish line, your given a 25 second opening to cross the line before your DNF (Did Not Finish). Everyone who finishes will be awarded random loot regardless of position. This eliminates the need to be first to earn the best loot but still necessary to be top three for bounties. The Forth reason is to provide special gear due to it being a limited time event. All destiny events have gear that is hard to get or limited time offer. We all just went through with the Halloween theme with the mask hunt. Now we have limited time offer sparrows, gear, and Horns! Like the idea of only keeping legendary items after, you can now honk you custom horn while driving your sparrow. Like it or hate it, its there and can be amusing. I'm enjoying this event because I wanted to race my sparrow. I'm bummed out that placing doesn't matter except for your own personal goal. However you take the event at least give it a try. Now I understand that people are having a hard time with it. From being sent to orbit to placement glitches. Let them address these issues within a week and try again. If the problem persists then just continue what you do. Remember, this is optional Event. To read more find my forum posts with the search word "Rain". Thx As always... The Awesome Red Headed Titan
