In Other News

“In Other News” is a new segment we’ve started to let you all know about some miscellaneous Destiny news or information that isn’t quite ‘news-worthy’ enough to warrant an entire article by itself. To see the previous In Other News article, click here.

First Look

As we’ve outlined in the expansion exposé article, there’s going to be a new content coming in the Dark Below DLC. Could this area be a part of it?

And another image, possibly for House of Wolves?

Sony Server Maintenance

If you’re on the PS and unable to play Destiny, it’s because Sony’s servers are undergoing maintenance… on Saturday of all days.

All Tower Coins

DeeJ set a goal for the community to find all of the secret coins in the Tower, and it’s been accomplished! For more on the subject, check out this Reddit post.

More quitters in IB?

It appears that people have been leaving Crucible matches in droves, long before the Iron Banner. These stats from DestinyDB show that the amount of people leaving in Iron Banner, and the amount of people leaving in regular modes, is negligible.

Quitting is still a huge problem obviously, and needs to be addressed in some way. If you haven’t already, check out our poll this week – asking how you feel about IB overall.


10/02 (Crucible live, Control only)

  • Total matches played: 48,757
  • Total players in roster: 612,544 (12.56/match)

10/09 (Crucible and Iron Banner live, Control only)

  • Total matches played: 173,847
  • Total players in roster: 2,177,703 (12.53/match)

The difference in leavers is down ~0.3% between last week and this week.


Did you know? РФБА, РОССИЙСКОЕ ФЕДЕРАЛЬНОЕ БЮРО АЭРОНАВТИКИ, stands for Russian Federal Bureau of Aeronautics.


Destiny’s hair looks great, but are you curious about the process of making it? the design philosophies behind it? This PDF is a sort of BTS of the process that went into making the hair styles.


Speaking of hair, check out this gallery by w0odyallen with some hair styles at all angles:

    I just sprained my wrist yesterday an I can’t play without some pain so the PS server issue was perfect timing. lol

    There is no way that there is only 12.53 player per crucible match. Something is definitely not being factored in there. That would mean there is only 1 leaver per 12 games. I see more along the lines of an average 2 players leaving per 1 game.

    • Krysl3r

      12.53 per match equates to just over 1 per game dude 🙂
      Still though, it most certainly seems like more, but there are probably a lot of groups hitting them.
