statistics_of_the_week

In the return of Trials of Osiris, 133,444 players made it to the Lighthouse at least once. With the steeper incline provided by new matchmaking, the winner’s circle population is down from 188,442 in May.

Those sun-soaked victorious warriors amounted to 16.25% of the 820,986 players who challenged them in Trials of Osiris.

We’re looking at all the numbers. The guns you used. The ways you fought. The hammers you threw, or caught with your face. In the weeks to come, we’ll share a lot of details for how we’ll be refining various weapons and classes in an upcoming December update. It will address some things you’ve told us, as well as some of what we’ve noticed during our constant study of the battles that rage among you.

First up, we have a November Update in the pipeline, packed with the improvements to Quests and Bounties that we’ve already promised, along with some other promises we have yet to make.

Keep talking about Destiny, and we’ll keep making it a game we all want to play.

The final days of the Festival of the Lost are upon us – Nov 9th. Candy consumables, Gifts of the Lost, and Rare (Blue) quality Masks will be removed from all character Inventories when the Festival ends.

Festival-themed items provided by Eververse Trading Co. will no longer be available for purchase. More details can be found in the Festival of the Lost Guided Support.

Promises We Have Yet To Make

Need Weapon Parts?

We know! We’ve read a lot of feedback about the abject poverty that was induced when we adjusted their drop rate. My Boss says things are getting dire for him! He’s down to only 1,656 of them, so we need to act fast. As part of the November update, we’re authorizing Banshee-44 as your Weapon Parts dealer. He’ll accept Glimmer as a form of payment.

In all sincerity, as the curators of your living social world, we reserve the right to tinker with the economy. We also reserve the right to change our minds again once we’ve had a chance to read the forum. Thanks for giving enough of a damn to tell us what’s up.

On that note, you’ll see yet more welcome changes to the in-game economy in the December update.

Rumor has it that Petra will have use for your Etheric Light, and Eris has been asking if anyone out there is hoarding a surplus of Worm Spore. Turns out she loves the stuff.

Those changes, and more, are coming soon.

Cozmo will be holding down the Community Desk all by himself. He’ll have blog updates and Creations and sweet Tweets and maybe even some Patch Notes to share, if all goes well. Be excellent to him.

Upon my return, we’ll talk to you more about that December update. We’ll also pass the mic to the Live Team. Once they’re done passing out candy, they’ll have more to say about what they’ll do next to keep Year Two fresh and filled with exciting experiences we can all enjoy. There’s more to come, and we’re anxious to tell you all about it.
