Guys since the Tues refresh we have had HUGE ..! problems with completing Crota. Typically we beat him (with the same group, team, sword carrier, sniper, Etc. in a few turns and maybe 20 minutes or so but now ... holy SHIT ..! - it has been an up hill battle. Crota will regain shield, the sword carrier can't land hits even when the shield is gone, Crota timers are way off from normal - when moving center, right, left, Crota recovers very quickly from a knee much quicker than before, and the best one - the sword carrier will drop the sword and the sword will disappear from the ground or while in hand - the hell is going on ..?? I have captured film of some of these issues and they ARE REAL. I can post in my xbxlive feed if requested. The sword disappearing, Crota recovering ninja quick, me being invisible on my screen at Crota but not on my friends screen, and his (Crota) shield being gone on my "shooters" screen but up on mine ..? Are you guys havening similar issues since the servers have been acting strange; we have seen huge differences in this raid since the fixed problems with the bridge, death singer, and Crota glitches. We just want a few people to speak out if issues like this are common since this past Tues 1-13-15 - thnx guys ..!
Same issue here! We got to Crota (without cheesing) easily as we work well as a team but beating Crota when its laggy is damn near impossible!! When we came back later to kill him, it was smooth so we killed him with 3 sword bearers. Please Bungie, invest in some more servers or fix the ones you have to operate efficiently.
