The Trouble With Destiny 2 Trials Of Osiris, No Fix In Sight

Trials of Osiris is the hardcore game mode for PVP Guardians who love to team up with two friends and shoot the crap out of other Guardians in a Power Level enabled match of might. Unfortunately, the game mode seems to be losing interest as Guardians get frustrated with ancient issues.

As reported by Forbes, the Trials of Osiris Guardian population, the Guardians who log in on Friday and play through until Sunday, have dropped by around 50% since the game mode launched with Season of the Worthy. This could just be the natural percentage of Guardians who wanted to try the game mode out but ultimately aren’t bothered enough to play it for rewards each week.

Adding to the Guardian population drop could be the fact that there are fewer low skill Guardians to face off against. With a shortage of easy prey, the better Guardians are left fighting each other, making Trials a much harder experience than ever before.

Unfortunately, as there was with Trials in Destiny 1, there are cheaters. These Guardians prey on certain weaknesses in Bungie’s infrastructure, but they’re also using strategic disconnects to help them automatically win matches. These issues are far more prevalent on PC, but that might just be because of the number of Guardians on that platform.

Finally, there’s a huge barrier to entry for Trials. Not only do you need to be an extremely high Power Level, but you also need to get at least three wins if you want a decent reward. The rewards drop at three, five, and seven wins, otherwise you don’t get anything.

Once again as pointed out by Forbes, it would be better if there was a more open loot system for the game mode, allowing Guardians of all skill levels to get a reward for a win. Having something available for one win, and the ultimate reward reserved for seven, would be fine. It would encourage everyone to play, and that’s really what Destiny 2 is all about isn’t it?

Let us know what you think in the comments.

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.
