Destiny just gave fans something new to complain about.
The first-person shooter/massively multiplayer online game hybrid (available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC) has already received criticism for its weak story, lack of content, and repetitive gameplay. Now, the video below argues that its newest event, the Iron Banner (detailed here), isn’t what developer Bungie advertised it would be.
While characters receive a balance adjustment in normal multiplayer modes (meaning that those with higher levels and better gear shouldn’t have an advantage), the Iron Banner supposedly makes your improved stats matter. However, this video shows YouTube user OohaPieceaCandy dominating the mode with a level 4 character equipped with a level 1 auto rifle. Huh?
I’m sure the player is good and all, but should a level 4 character really be able to so easily destroy people closing in on the level cap? People can play the regular Crucible matches if they’re looking for balanced player-vs-player content.
The Iron Banner also earns players reputation that eventually lets them unlock new gear and items.
