Below has been my experience with Iron banner on D2 on PC.
I went in as a solo and as a 6 man fireteam to see if any difference experience.
Solo runs: to my surprise, it wasn't that bad, while I did experience some laggy players and went against full fireteam. It was nice, was able to mercy a couple of matches and got mercied on. There was alot of mercy rule going off since some maps you can take full advantage of spawn location and practicely guarantee the win but mostly the games since most of my matches was against guardians at my lightlevel and didn't feel like my weapon wasn't doing anything compare to the last seasons of iron banners.
6 man team: while I will say I am not best PVP player but I can say I know how to play well in PVP and my friends knows how to play very well (honestly most of them are really good at PVP). We mercied almost every match we was in. It was very rare where we would match against another team that actually ended the game with the score being reached, then we will return back to wiping lobby back to back.
Iron Banner Loot: the loot was fine for this iron banner. Not a fan of the armor but the Sidearm and the auto rifle with the new perks was very nice, the weapons felt great to use in the crucible.
My concerns/questions? Why doesn't bite of the fox sniper doesn't have the new perks in its roll pool? Why does the new perks only on the new weapons?
Feel like missed opportunity to make Iron banner weapons special again since the new perks introduced and only able to get them in Iron banner and no where else.
Iron Banner Quest: It is great! Not a very long or terrible compare the the previous Iron banner quest and honestly prefer this way of quest when it come to Iron banner since the main highlight should be the event itself, not the quest.
Final thoughts: would have been nice if the new perks was also in the other iron banner guns. This iron banner is alright, it ain't great but it is not bad. Iron banner still feel like it is missing that extra something that make Iron banner unique.We been playing control for a very long time and would be nice to see Iron banner get exclusively game mode. Give iron banner Rift.
This is my feedback for Day 1 of iron banner and thank you for your time.
