Bungie tweaks Destiny 2’s Crown of Sorrows Raid for World First contest


Good for streamers... bad for normal players?

Destiny 2‘s upcoming Raid, Crown of Sorrows, will be tweaked upon its launch in order to service a World First contest hosted by developer Bungie.

For a full 24 hours after the Raid’s launch on 4 June (or 5 June here in Australia), “players will face an enforced challenge throughout the Raid,” Bungie advised in an update. “This means, Power beyond certain levels will provide no advantage for a given fight (e.g., for the first fight all Power above 700 won’t provide an advantage, and for the final fight Power above 720 will not provide an advantage).”

After the 24-hour period, the amendments will be disabled and Power higher than the levels detailed above will benefit Guardians.

It’s an interesting move, to be sure — but begs the question of how this will impact Guardians who are wanting to play the Raid for their own pleasure and not the honour of trying to become the first team in the world to complete it.

The Crown of Sorrows Raid will launch the same day as Destiny 2‘s Season of Opulence, 4 (or 5) June.

Destiny 2 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
