Only way Bungie can increase Trials Player base...???

Instead of making the activity rewarding and preventing cheating, Bungie is trying to artificially increase the Trials player base by forcing people into the activity via Moments of Triumph and Solstice. Goes to show how out of touch Bungie is with their player base and how little they care.

      They don’t play their game on live servers. They only play on internal servers against each other on admin accounts. It’s why they can’t get rewards right. They don’t have to experience the game way we do and don’t keep anyone on staff that HAS to experience the game in a live setting.

    • I'm still not going to run trials, would rather leave solstice and moments unfinished.

      • Take the sensible approach. Don't do trials. Sure, your moments of triumph and solstice stuffs won't get completed but this could work in the larger playerbases favour. Bungo will see the lack of interest and the lack of money spent in everworse and will, hopefully, do some remedial work on trials and other parts of the game that need it. The only course of action we have as paying customers is to vote with our wallets and as players vote with our time and participation.

        • Balance! The crucible needs balance and overpowered penicle weapons that only a portion of it's players can get! Auto rifle meta isn't at all fun! Too many bullshit special weapons that damn near every player relies on to get kills. Too much aim assist and not enough pure -blam!-ing skill!

          It's pretty sad when a company creates an event that is meant to be casual, to have fun to force players to play other parts of the game because their couch potatoes "need to make money". You know, how their couch potatoes were crying that there weren't enough players playing Trials so I guess this is a way to show numbers huh? Trials is a game mode that is more toxic than anything in this entire game has ever been in 6 years especially today's Trials 🤦‍♂️ I've seen a hell of a lot of dumb decisions this company has made over the years, but this is in the top 10 list of the dumbest decisions this company has ever made. This is the BS we get to look forward to while the WoW guy is at the helm for the next 3 years, all that wonderful talent this company sees that he has to offer this game that has saved this game right? Correct me if I'm wrong, this will be the 3rd Solstice event. The first one went from fun that didn't have many conditions and you could acquire things like the glow packs through the shop for only 1000 bright dust. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xWPuCaYsZI The next one changed adding more conditions and the glows became a profit or you grind a lot to save up bright dust, the catch though, this company removed a lot of the options that we were able to collect that bright dust to how many options do we have now? The glows were 800 silver or 5000 bright dust. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLnIyxGkH0E So here we are with the 3rd one and the conditions have changed for the worst. [spoiler]Yeah, yeah, all you Trials/PvP players saying how it's not that bad, blah blah blah trying to boost your ego just showing how lost you actually are. This game has a variety of players and I can only imagine how the LFG is going to be off the hook with paid carries, a hell of a lot of toxic PvP players that won't even except anyone that has never run trials or rarely plays PvP. All the stupid requirements, checking your stats and if they don't like it, you will be instantly booted from that fire team before you go to orbit. All the crap a lot of the newer players are going to have to deal with that will push players away that may want to run this to complete the event. LFG will chase off players that will end up saying screw this shit.[/spoiler] If this company is trying to chase the player base off, this is a great start to show how they just don't give a crap about what these events were actually created for, that profit and their couch potatoes have become more important then creating a decent game.

          • Its mental. if you create an elitist activity for the top 1-5% of the portion of the players that actually play pvp you need to make sure that this activity works with said portion of the game and that you dont need 15% pf the playerbase forit to actually work.. meaning Trials should have had dedicated servers and a ranking system that allows the entire activity to work flawlesly evenw ith only 6 players attending the match ..

          • The only way to increase the player base, is to give everyone who completes their trials card access to the same shït you’d get if you went flawless...it’ll get rid of recovery’s..streamers in general...paid carries...and the forums would be on fire.

          • LOL. They always do this nonsense. Forcing players into the crucible and other activities they don't want to do. Bungie wants you to play D2 their way. They don't respect their customers at all.

              Ik you guys love the whole "increase playbase" conspiracy. But how does that help Bungie in anyway? The reason they have it as a challenge is because it's a pinnacle activity. This isn't some secret ploy to get numbers back into trials. Because it doesn't -blam!-ing matter to them. Oh for sure a temporary bump in people playing trials is going to make such a huge difference. It's not like people are going to never play it again once they get 7 wins. Bungie knows that they are likely never going to increase trials player counts until an effective anti cheat is added, and they add some good rewards for people to play it. Stop for a minute, and think. If anything, this decision is harmful to them because it makes a bunch of crybabies not spend money in Eververse. Bungie is a company, they're here to make money. Increasing the player count of trials doesn't increase profits at all. Take your damn tinfoil hats off.

              • You know a better way of making trials more appealing to the average player base is to get rid of the damn lost counter. Yea eventually everyone can get any of the trials gear but with how crucible is how often does a normal person win constantly. If you go by the posts on the forums about how bad some players are they don’t win all to often.

              • do you not know what free to play means? even if bungie were to ban the cheaters, which they won't, they can easily circumvent the ban by making a brand new account. only an ip ban would put a stop to it, and even that doesn't work as good as it used to.

                • I just get frustrated with matchmaking. I'm not great but I give trials a good go bc it's content and why not. I just don't quite understand how once I reach 2 wins I'm suddenly going against people who have 20+ flawless runs. Seems like every match I've played after the 2nd win is that way. I get it's end game content and not intended to just give away loot but if they want more players that certainly isn't helping.

                • Yeah trials has been cancer this weekend. You are led to believe from regular crucible and regular elimination that you’re decent at the game. Then you go in Trials and get castrated. My trials KD is always like half of my regular KD. If it’s 1.0 in normal crucible it’s .5 in Trials.

                  • It's much easier to try to force people to do something than invest the time and effort to make them enjoy an activity and want to do it. I have zero incentive to play and instead of 8 hours a day playing Destiny with 3 characters, I'm down to maybe 4 hours a week with one character. I'm actually having more Fun in Anthem (and I've beaten the game and have all the Achievements) than in Destiny - and that's saying a lot.

                      • Moments of triumph is about celebrating a year of doing bounties with more bounties, so why everything isn't bounties is beyond me.
