Kiss Destiny 2’s Crimson Days Goodbye
No Valentine’s Day for Guardians this year.
All Guardians know about Crimson Days. Whether you’ve been playing since Destiny 1, or you’ve only picked Destiny 2 up in the last year, you’ll have seen and heard about Crimson Days. It’s a fantastic in-game event that brings a new game mode forward for a week, and turns the Crucible into a land of love. Sadly, that event will no longer grace our lives, at least not until Bungie relinquishes it from the vault.
In their latest This Week At Bungie Article, Bungie announced that Crimson Days is being thrown into the Destiny Content Vault. This is because they want more resources to focus on the seasonal event that’s coming with the game’s next season. It’s a reasonable explanation, and one I’m on board with. I just wish they’d attacked a different event instead of the best one in the game.
Crimson Days introduced a game mode to the Crucible called Crimson Doubles. It’s a mode in which teams of pairs of Guardians compete for domination in Elimination matches. The close you are to your teammate, the more damage you guys deal. Get too far away, and you’ll be debuffed and become visible to the enemy team.
I loved this game mode because it was fast-paced and very different. I just clicked with it for some reason. I’m not a big Crucible player, but whenI do get into it, it was usually always with Crimson Doubles.
The event also brought some of the best rewards I’ve ever seen in this game. The Vow is just one of those, but there are also loads of fabulous cosmetics that came with it.
So let’s all say goodbye to this incredible game mode. I honestly think that we could do without Iron Banner and keep this, but Bungie knows what Guardians play, and this event must have super low numbers.
Unfortunately this means that there’s no event to play over Valentine’s Day. We’ll have to find a new excuse to play Destiny 2 on that most loving of days. Maybe we could all raid with our partners, or just spend hours grinding out quests while holding hands.
Let us know what you think of this tragedy in the comments.
