Alot of people want trials to return and so do I. I have been back to d1 last month because how bad crucible in d2 is. I can say d1 crucible is so relaxing without rage like it's a knight and day difference.
It’s all about the money my friend $$$$$$$
I read somewhere that a 3v3 elimination game mode is coming to competitive play, which will hopefully fill the "Trials" void. I agree that Trials was a ton of fun in D1, but I don't think that we will see it in D2 any time soon.
Bungie's reasoning because trials of the nine didn't feel like trials of osiris. You didn't have to go flawless to get the loot which made the card useless really. I get it they arnt wrong. But that just means they needed to take out how easy it was to get the loot. But that's to Much work."
