You’ll find out on 07/07.
For the Destiny Player Support team, keeping you connected and well-informed is job number one. They make an appearance in every Weekly Update to point at their works. They can always be found in the #Help forum.
DPS: With the announcement of the Red Bull Quest, we’ve added a few new Guided Support articles to help you along the way. You can check them out on the Guided Support landing page. If you encounter any issues with your Red Bull codes, be sure to speak with Red Bull customer support for the best results.
We are aware that the Doubles Grimoire card is not properly unlocking for some players when accessing the Doubles activity in the Crucible. We’re currently investigating the matter.
Finally, please see our Taken King pre-purchase FAQ for all available information on purchasing the Taken King or the Legendary Edition. Stay tuned for further updates!
On the Engineering side, we’re seen some great success for the Connection Recovery feature that keeps Guardians with intermittent Internet connections in the fight. Ever since we put the new functionality into effect, 4.8 million Guardians have been rescued from being kicked to orbit.
Keep on playing, and we’ll keep enhancing the tech that keeps your feet on the ground of your favorite destinations.
This has been widely reported and shared around while we were at E3, but it deserves top honors where we celebrate the best of our community. Sometimes, the movie of the week is a fanciful display of action and adventure. On this occasion, it’s far more somber, but undeniable evidence of the fact that players of Destiny are bound to each other by more than a game.
On June 8th 2015 we lost a friend, and fellow dad to Cystic Fibrosis, Joshua R. Stokell.
We will miss you sir and may you "Find the Clearing at the end of the path…."
Friends of Joshua, along with other people in this fine community, will be playing some games in his honor during a 36-hour marathon. We think he’d be as humbled and inspired as we are by this act of remembrance. They’re raising awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. They’re also raising money to fund research. We’re contributing some loot for them to share with viewers. #blacksmith
The events that led to this moment are sad. The response from the community is amazing, and of little surprise. The heroes in the world of Destiny are the players.
On a personal note, I have been three times now to E3. This last one felt like my first as a Community Manager. It was amazing to meet so many of you, and hear your stories. If you were one of the people in line to enter our booth, or you caught up to me on the convention floor to tell me why you love Destiny, I thank you. We’ve had a great year together and I hope that party continues.
Thanks for being awesome, whether you were able to infiltrate the Los Angeles Convention Center, or you watched from afar.
We’ll talk more next week.
