XÛR, AGENT OF THE NINE

A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. (Note: Xur offers random rolls on Exotic Armor meaning the stats/numbers are different with each purchase. Legendary weapon/armor stays the rolls that it shows but change every time Xur arrives.)

TRIALS CHANGE TO MATCHES AND FLAWLESS POOL

Info below is from This Week at Bungie article by Bungie:

“Bungie has are rolled out a new system and leaning into weekly performance metrics. Whenever you match in Trials, in addition to trying to match with people with the same number of card wins, you will also attempt to match with people who have roughly the same number of overall wins for the weekend. If you can’t find anyone to match against, it will eventually expand out to find you a less similar match. 

For the PvP gods who go Flawless 10x a weekend, they will end up matching with other players who have (for example) 70+ wins on their cards, no matter how they got them. For the average team who gets a lucky Flawless in on Friday or Saturday on their first card, well, they will be matching against other players with around seven wins, no matter how they got them. Bungie is hoping this will give us many of the benefits of the Flawless pool system (somewhat fairer matches) without the significant downsides. Specifically, there should be no major inflection point where everything is smooth prior to a win, and then everything is overly challenging after. 

While this allows Bungie to remove the Flawless pool, it does have a potential downside: longer matchmaking times. They think there is a reasonable tradeoff here between match quality and matchmaking time. Average Trials matchmaking times currently sit at around 50 seconds. Over the next few weekends, Bungie is going to be looking at how much matchmaking time goes up, and how it affects the match quality. 

The outcomes of the previous non-Labs week were: 

Game outcomes: Overall % / Fireteam vs Fireteam / All Solos 

  • 5-0 games: 28.4% / 22.8% / 27.6% 
  • 5-1 games: 25.6% / 25.6% / 25.4% 
  • 5-2 games: 18.6% / 20.2% / 19.0% 
  • 5-3 games: 14.7% / 16.8% / 15.4% 
  • 5-4 games: 12.3% / 14.5% / 12.6% 

In an ideal world, we want to get each of those numbers as close to 20% as possible, but we would rather see more 5-4/5-3 outcomes than 5-0/5-1.” -Bungie article

BUNGIE’S PLAYER SUPPORT

Rutabega Error Increase

Recently, an exploit was discovered that allowed players to generate more Orbs of Power than intended when triggering certain Supers. To prevent exploitation of this issue until a fix can be deployed later this year, players who experience extreme sustained framerate issues in PvP environments may now encounter more frequent RUTABEGA errors. Some of these errors can be mitigated by not alt-tabbing or changing your video settings during matchmaking.
Players who encounter RUTABEGA errors while participating in PvP for reasons other than reproducing the Orb generation issue should report the details of what they were doing to our dedicated Help Forum thread.

Hotfix 3.3.1.2 is LIVE

Yesterday, Hotfix 3.3.1.2 was released to the world. This hotfix resolved several issues including: 

  • Mini Screebs will no longer sink below the ground in the Grandmaster Hollowed Lair Nightfall. 
  • Exploits for Telesto and Raiju’s Harness have been fixed. These Exotics have now been re-enabled in all activities. 
  • Year-1 faction, raid, and Trials armor ornaments now correctly list class specific Synthweave as unlock options in the Appearance screen. 

Final Week of Festival of the Lost

Festival of the Lost concludes at the Weekly Reset on November 2, and players should ensure that they turn in their collected Candy for rewards, redeem all Manifested Pages, and collect all available Triumphs before it ends. 
Players should also keep in mind that the Power level of the Masquerader’s Helmet will return to 0 after the conclusion of the event, and should make sure to unequip it prior to attempting to participate in high-level content to ensure they meet the entry requirements.
