This online MMO shooter is free to play Fate 2released in 2017And It is one of my favorite video games. I play it all the time. I have multiple personalities. I own all the latest seasons. It is great. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in the future of the game, for example With every seasonIt seems to be more prone to fracture. In fact, as I write this very paragraph around At 4:00 PM on January 24th, the game remains offline as Bungie continues to investigate the latest issue. Meanwhile, many players are hoping to get a brand new engine and game, most likely in shape Fate 3. But things are not that simple.

While Bungie studied the progress of losing players for victories and seals that act as achievements and challenges in the game. It’s not the end of the world, of course, but the past week has been a bit boring Players have reported losing their characters Along with their progression and items. and then, . And before that it was something else. In 2023, after years of updates, expansions and more, this is what it looks like .

Take a look Bungie’s official support Twitter account— which is updated frequently to let players know about upcoming patches, server issues, and other important information Fate 2—You can find a lot of tweets that sound like Bungie saying, “Okay, it’s not working. We are trying to fix it. More information later.” Online games not working every day is nothing new, and it’s not an exclusive problem Fate 2. But it’s starting to become a more common problem for older shooters. Looking at this support account, many of the tweets about bugs or broken tasks aren’t weeks apart, just days or less.

Novels, my playtime Fate 2 Lately it has been more than ever. This new season brought new awesome heist missions and a weird shift I’ve never seen before. I still have issues with the game not counting every PvP match which forces us to play more to complete the weekly challenges and missions. I just agreed that game rewards for kills, quests, or other actions won’t always update as they should. In fact, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I and other gamers I know are used to it. Fate 2 Unreliable. And it seems to be getting worse, not better, as the game expands and adds more layers and systems.

Look online and you’ll quickly see players suggesting that Bungie needs to move on to a theoretical Destiny 3, a game that likely will happen—and is maybe in development already—but which hasn’t been confirmed. During today’s extended downtime, Fate 3 It was trending on Twitter Where players argued about the future and stability of the shooter. for some

The new regulation seemed promising, giving hope that it would solve many problems Destiny 2′Problems. how to A brand new game that is not easy to make Or simple to use and possibly missing features or content at launch. In addition He will solve all the problems that arise.

personally i think fate That would probably be a good move to make at the end. This could allow developers to create something more flexible and capable of handling the kind of events they’ve spent years developing and perfecting. But I’m also not naive enough to think that this will fix everything or be easy to build. However, I feel that the players feel the frustration Fate 2 It’s still not consistently consistent.

like an old computer or mixer, Fate 2 It mostly works, but it’s covered in tape, scratches, and dirt. And every now and then you have to kick or wire it to start it. Sure, it’s still bubbling for now, but it may need to be replaced at some point. and with Fate 2I have a feeling Bungie is going to plod along on the tape for as long as possible Fate 2 to survive until the end of the planned roadmap, with the final season likely to arrive in 2024. After that I don’t know. Hopefully by then the game will at least feel more stable and reliable, not worse.
