Due to connection issues for Trials of Osiris in Destiny, this week's Iron Banner Tournament will not be happening as the issues will not be fixed on time. Bungie let players know over Twitter:

The Trials of Osiris is is a weekly Crucible (multiplayer) event in an Elimination style game type. There are also level advantages enabled, so players with better gear and levels will get buffs. The playlist is avaliable from Friday till Tuesday each week, but due to connection issues with this week's event the Iron Banner Tournament was called off.

The Iron Banner Tournament comes and goes throughout the year, but is only available for a limited time. Played within the Control game mode, however, you must be at least level 40 and light level 230 to participate in this 6v6 tournament. You are rewarded with Iron Banner exclusive gear if you rank up, win, and even get buff multipliers for just taking part each day.

It's unclear as of yet when the Iron Banner Tournament will come back online, but GameSkinny will keep you updated.

In good news, any network errors with the HONEYDEW code have now been fixed.

Destiny Brings Elimination to Standard PvP https://www.gameskinny.com/bwn1m/destiny-brings-elimination-to-standard-pvp https://www.gameskinny.com/bwn1m/destiny-brings-elimination-to-standard-pvp Wed, 10 Jun 2015 05:15:45 -0400 K.W. Colyard

Destiny players can now search for Elimination lobbies in standard player-vs-player matchmaking, according to a recent announcement from Bungie. The decision follows community requests to change up Trials of Osiris, the endgame PvP mode added with the House of Wolves expansion.

Until now, gamers could only play Elimination during the Trials of Osiris weekly event, which runs Thursday through Sunday. The 3v3 game mode allows high-level fireteams to compete in first-to-five matches on a single map each week. Like the Iron Banner events, Trials of Osiris gives power advantages to players with higher weapon and armor ratings.

Requests from the Destiny community to modify Trials of Osiris included allowing matchmaking, map rotation, and daily play. The new Elimination playlist comes with all of these features plus skill-matching based on Crucible statistics. It also removes the power advantages, bringing the game type in-line with other standard PvP modes.

Destiny players who enjoy PvP should play Elimination while they can. Bungie is calling its new addition "temporary," but it's possible the game mode will make recurring Crucible appearances, à la Salvage. What do you think: will Elimination become a regular playlist, or is Bungie just giving Destiny players some practice space?

Bungie answers players' prayers in latest Destiny patch 1.2.0.2 https://www.gameskinny.com/al3x6/bungie-answers-players-prayers-in-latest-destiny-patch-1202 https://www.gameskinny.com/al3x6/bungie-answers-players-prayers-in-latest-destiny-patch-1202 Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:47:01 -0400 Ainyan

Ever since the launch of Destiny in 2014, Bungie has shown a marked tendency to listen to player feedback on their forums as well as through Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, and other forms of social media.

Patch 1.2.0.2, deployed on June 2nd, 2015, continues the trend of Bungie addressing player feedback with hotfixes for several of the most talked about bugs and features since the House of Wolves release two weeks prior.

Highlights of the Patch

Increased Treasure Key drops

  • The first Wanted bounty completed from Petra each week guarantees a Treasure Key.

  • Treasure Key drops from Ether Chests and the small chests at the end of Prison of Elders have been greatly increased.

Ammo Synthesis Glut

  • Ammo Syntheses now stack to 100, up from 20.

  • Ammo Syntheses no longer drop from Ether Chests.

Prison of Elders QoL Changes

  • 32, 34, and 35 now have a chance to drop class items.

  • The ‘Elder Cypher’ will now be sent to the Postmaster if your bounty slots are full. (Players who previously lost out on the bounty prior to patch 2.1.0.1 will need to defeat 34 or 35 PoE again; this change is not retroactive.)

  • Damage from Qodron’s bubbles decreased 25%; uptime on Jailbreaker increased 100%.

Trials of Osiris QoL Changes

  • Emblems will now be sent to the Postmaster if your emblem slots are full. (Players who previously lost out on the emblems must earn it again; the change is not retroactive.)

  • Passage Coins can now be dismantled.

Ether Chest QoL Changes

  • Ether Chests may only be looted once per spawn per player.

  • Ether Chests now grant a small amount of Queen’s Wrath reputation when opened.

  • Ether Chests now have a chance to drop Tokens of Flight, Identity, and Judgement.

Tokens of Flight, Identity, and Judgement can be dismantled for +10 reputation to the House of Judgement.

Note: A previous hotfix to Fusion Rifles (1.1.1) was accidentally reverted in the last patch (1.2.0.1). This change has been reinstated in patch 1.2.0.2.

I'd say we all feel like dancing!
Bungie Listens

Since the drop of House of Wolves, players of Bungie’s Destiny have taken to the forums, Twitter, and Reddit to give their opinions - positive and negative - about the content and features found in the expansion. As with previous patches, Bungie has shown that they are listening and have taken steps to address player concerns.

While not every request can be answered - for instance, players continue to clamor for more vault space, despite a recent increase in vault capacity, Bungie has made a concerted effort to address the most visible player concerns.
