Destiny’s Iron Banner event has only been live for one day, and players are discovering that -when it comes to gear stats- it’s not working as advertised.
The Iron Banner is a PVP event where your gear and armour stats will carry over to multiplayer and won’t be “balanced” to provide a level playing field, instead, everyone gets to duke it out and see who’s got the best gear.
This isn’t the case though, according to some players. Bungie has heard those comments and is soliciting feedback. “Were you detecting an advantage attributed to your more powerful gear and weapons? Did the experience feel different than standard Crucible combat?” asked community manager Deej.
“Talk to me, Guardians. I know people quit games when they know they won’t win. I’m more curious about your perceptions for how the power-level advantages work. Help me help you.”
It’s worth noting that you currently do not incur any penalties for leaving a Crucible match in-progress.
