Bungee emphasizes future fate 2: Season of change in splicer stagnation


Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer brings transmogs, vault of glass spectacular returns, Expunge and more. It also brings the long-awaited Stasis change. This is a feature introduced in Beyond Light that divides the Destiny community. In a recent blog post from Bungie, the studio outlines some upcoming changes to this subclass and what that means for future guardians.

Sandbox leader Kevin Yanes talked about the upcoming stagnation changes that Guardians are planning during this week’s update. The main focus of the latest Statsis headups is on PvP status. We received a lot of feedback regarding the addition of PvP. I personally love the additional challenges in Crucible, but I hate freezing, but I understand the frustration. It’s incredibly unbalanced, especially for those who play Comp. With no new Crucible Maps and perceived no meaningful updates to the PvP experience, it’s understandable why the Destiny 2 Guardian vs. Guardian side is under the bright spotlight.

“It’s clear that our vision for crowd management in PvE is successful, and players find it useful and fun,” Yanes said in his latest blog post. “We love how Stasis plays in PvE and want to maintain that experience, but many in the PvP community need too little effort and skill to make Stasis crucible. I agree that it is too dominant. “

He went on to say that feedback is important and the team is preparing to deploy some new changes based on community insights. Working hard to “get caught up in this wonderful new power,” Bungie has made some important tweaks to make Crucible more enjoyable and attractive.

“Stasis and crowd control are key components of the Destiny Combat Sandbox. We don’t go anywhere, so it’s up to us to make Stasis work well in all activities, regardless of skill level,” he said. Added. “This TWAB details a series of changes that make Stasis an equivalent rather than a dominant option, alongside Void, Solar, and Arc subclasses, while preserving the fun of the ability set. It is considered to be evenly distributed. “”

The developers continue to say that since Forsaken, the team is aware of why players feel that shooting has been “deferred”, so Bungie will focus more on weapons in the future. Crucible is a great combination of subclass power and weapons, so the balance is hard and thin, but the studio is working on it regardless.

Yanes said future changes will implement some key pillars of the studio’s creative vision of entering PvP. This includes weapons as the main focus, non-psychic abilities that act as combat enhancements, distinct strengths and weaknesses, and abilities with counters. And rewards. Overall, the point of the latest update is that Bungie is listening to players and refocusing on shooting. Core pillar.
