Client fixes

  • Added more data logging for matchmaking systems
  • Improved connectivity failure handling to reduce beaver (Kick To Orbit events) KTOs
  • Improved logging of player disconnections
  • Internal tools fixes to speed up our release process
  • Fixes to the roster system to allow us to tune the frequency of roster updates on Xbox One
  • Fixed a bug that allowed users to quick scope on some weapons

Server Fixes

  • Security fixes
  • Server performance improvements
  • Fixes to reduce the frequency of some KTOs
  • Better logging to help diagnose connectivity problems
  • Fixes to some Centipede errors that were exclusive to specific player characters

    How about a fix for how boring this game is. I’ve been grinding level 27 for the past 1.5 weeks. Happy about finally getting my first exotic armor. Sad to find out it set me back 6 light and I’m starting over on 27->28.

      Dude, 27->30 is the very very end game… iv been 27 for ages now just waiting for the right exotic and raid gear to upgrade. Do you expect to be spoon fed the hardest lvls of the game? The fact of the matter is: its supposed to be tough, so dont cry that u spend a few weeks on it, im certainly not. Secondly ur gear gives less light right now because its not upgraded, once you do upgrade it, you will most likely reach higher levels, personally iv been saving all my materials for the right gear, currently at 38 ascendant shards. as soon as i get the gear i like and lvl it up, ill sky rocket. So have patience and you will get there

        Oh I’m not crying but it is a grind. It’s not helped by the fact that I don’t have friends who play so the Weekly Strikes are out of the question with no matchmaking. Not to mention that to upgrade, you’re looking at hours of farming materials.

          Use when looking for raid or weekly strike partners, aside from that, use chest runs for farming materials, it’s pretty quick. If you can’t be bothered using an lfg site then solo the strikes, level 27+ can pretty well if you know what you’re doing

    Not to mention spammers of shotguns & rpgs in PvP.

    What happened with bad juju and thorn buff?
