Whereas I am unsure if that is value a whole article, even with all the opposite enhancements to Future 2, I felt like I wanted to say all of them as one thing was method behind.
The Tower, the primary social space of the sport, turns into an nearly untenable place to go to at this level. It looks as if the menu lag within the Tower is getting worse every season and we have now reached some extent the place most gamers will actively keep away from the Tower if attainable and as an alternative select to get rewards from the web app or go to their very own retailer. postmaster or vault in HELM with solo pattern as an alternative.
The issue is, the sport obtained sluggish sufficient to stutter on the subject of checking your menus or performing actions throughout the menus within the Tower. The obvious time this happens is when making an attempt to transmog with decorations or when making an attempt to use or preview shaders. However simply… even opening your character menu could cause critical lag, along with elevated load occasions to get to the Tower within the first place, the place the sport now typically ensures that *everybody* absolutely masses into the Tower. identical second.
That is an issue for Future if actually the primary social hub of the sport is the place customizing your character or performing different actions is least environment friendly. I do not know precisely what brought on this, however it has turn out to be a difficulty the place each participant realizes this and begins avoiding the Tower every time attainable.
Bungie has talked so much about sustaining the general well being of the sport, so that they began implementing content material vaults within the first place, eradicating massive chunks of the sport and plenty of content material to maintain it at a manageable measurement. defend engine and efficiency. And whereas these points aren’t almost as widespread elsewhere within the sport (though some lag persists in different areas), Tower is the exception the place issues can get ridiculous.
The issue is that that is hardly talked about and there would not appear to be a repair calendar for what is going on on right here. Bungie desires gamers to spend extra time within the sport itself somewhat than third-party apps, however in Tower’s present state, that is a troublesome demand when issues like gear shifting or pulling prizes are performed extra effectively outdoors of the sport. And once more, it feels prefer it’s getting worse with every season.
As with each new enlargement, when there will probably be different huge modifications to the sport, I hope this could a minimum of be mounted by Lightfall. Future is a social sport with dangerously few actual social areas. It isn’t good for the well being of the sport that the tower is a spot you hate to go, and I hope this may be mounted.
