One of our engineers recently discovered the cause of the [url=https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/87rbip/even_after_this_update_tower_black_screen_is/dwfmbol/]Tower backscreen issue[/url]. While working on a fix for that he was also able to discover the root cause of the raid spawning issue. I’ll let him explain. [quote]While working through some of our most painful bugs, I was able to get my hands on a repro of the raid spawning issue and tracked down the bug. The good news is that I believe you may be able to avoid this issue with a relatively simple workaround while a permanent fix is on the horizon. As long as you are launching into a check-pointed raid or the fireteam leader launches solo into the raid before others join, you may be able to avoid this bug. The root cause is the cinematic at the start of the raid pushing some of our memory budgets over the edge as players swap around their gear later on. Cheers, Lemming[/quote] We are still investigating a permanent fix for both these issues and will let you know when you can expect them to be deployed in game. Please let us know if you still hitting the issue when trying the workaround for the raid spawn issue mentioned above.
Endgame needs a system of activities that prepare players for the raid. Story, strikes and public events where players can be carried isn’t enough to get them ready for end game. A SOLO arena with raid like activities and encounters preparing players on their own for the raid would be a huge step in bringing more players to endgame. Players can get gear and weapons with raid specific perks to help them. A SOLO activity with great raid difficulty!! Once this is completed unlocks a raid matchmaking system that requires a mic and guardians to be above min recommend raid light to join que. This system would really bring more players to the endgame. The 6 man raid activity should have gear with perks that benefit the next upcoming raid activity. A ladder system for endgame with each raid preparing you for the next adventure. This would give endgame a lasting purpose. Fight forever guardians!
