On January 3, Bungie is suspending all activity on its Destiny 2 servers for maintenance from 10:00 ET to 3:00 p.m. ET, approximately. This means that gamers that will not be online during that time interval will no longer be able to log into the game’s servers.
Players who are online will be reportedly kicked out of the game one hour later. You should see the title screen at around 11:00 a.m. ET. During the maintenance, the studio will release a hotfix that will upgrade the current version to 188.8.131.52.
It wasn’t immediately clear what the new upgrade will contain as Bungie failed to offer any details. A spokesperson for the company said some of the most important fixes include access to Faction Rallies and the Iron Banner.
Players speculate that the Faction Rally event may be revived with the new patch. In December Bungie delayed the Faction Rally which was initially designed to be open between December 12 and December 19, 2017. The previous patch was supposed to offer Destiny 2 users multiple events with limited time.
Destiny 2 Community on Edge
Destiny 2’s patches usually fix minor bugs or create the framework for a more comprehensive update in the future. The gaming community has been debating for months Bungie’s repeated delays when issuing much-anticipated updates.
The studio promised to be more transparent this year and announce gamers in advance about incoming fixes. Yet, players’ frustration has peaked in recent months since they want to know what is going on in Destiny 2’s first year.
Fans think the game developer should focus more on core issues like deleting Eververse or revamping Masterworks.
While wiping Eververse is not possible at this point, since the game’s economy needs an ongoing source of revenue, the system could be improved. Fans want an alternative place where they can get ghost shells, sparrows, and other cosmetic upgrades.
Armor sets should not be purchased from Eververse anymore, as this could give them more perks and stats without them relying on Eververse. In addition, the Bright Dust economy should be replaced with a like-something-buy-it-type of economy for a steady source of revenue.
