'Destiny 2' beta brought new changes, Bungie applying new matchmaking rules

"During the console Beta, we learned a lot from the players who entered the Crucible", reads a Bungie blog post. The option reduces loading times comparatively, with the trade-off being that Skill is no longer factored, so there's no guarantee that your opponents are near the same level as you. The Farm is located in the European Dead Zone, itself a new region in Destiny 2, and will only be accessible for one hour in the console beta for Destiny 2 later this month, with no details yet on whether the same will be true for the PC beta in August.

In Quickplay, matchmaking times will be shortened but at the expense of skill levels being less emphasized in the process.

"As a part of our security efforts, we have designed Destiny 2 for PC to resist all attempts from external applications to insert code into the game client", Bungie said. They're also upping the Control winning score from 75 to 100. Because too many matches were shorter than we expected (some Guardians weren't even able charge their Super) we've extended the trigger for the Mercy rule so it will come into play less often. Bungie will also improve skill calculation in Countdown to better show how players will perform against their opponents.

Another issue found with the help of our friends in the console Beta. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".

Moving on, Bungie's fixed the Warlock glide glitch ("this bug was awesome.so awesome it hurt us a little bit to kill it"), and the infinite grenades glitch. Also tweaked is the Warlock melee attack, which will now have the same range as other classes (the exception being when perks increase range). Our PC friends will get a chance to experience a world with consistent base melee ranges.

"The release of the highly anticipated "#Destiny 2" from Bungie fast approaching, and now is the season to participate in the game's #Beta.

TWEAKED: Increased Grenade Damage in PvE Increased damage helps Grenades feel as powerful as they should facing hordes of alien combatants and, more specifically, makes the longer cooldowns more palatable.

"We want abilities to be slightly more rare, but worth it". It does include some tweaks from the console beta plus a new multiplayer map.

The console beta was held back in mid July, giving Bungie plenty of feedback on their networking technology, as well as player response on gameplay changes and tweaks, but now the developer has outlined what adjustments have been made since then, and in-turn will be live in the PC beta. The drop rate for Power ammo has been increased and is now a guaranteed drop from Major (yellow health bar) enemies.

Destiny 2 launches on PC on October 24th.
