You know the outdated saying: if it ain’t broke, do not repair it. But whether it is broke, be sure you do not break one thing extra necessary when fixing it. Unfortunately, that appears to be what occurred to immediately when Bungie rolled out a hotfix as a part of the 1.zero.6 Patch, which was meant to resolve the efficiency degradation being attributable to a bug that additionally means clan rosters weren’t displayed in-game.
The excellent news: The clan bug has certainly been resolved. You can now see your clanmates listed within the clan menu, and my efficiency has remained constant even after leaving the sport operating for a few hours. However, it’s now constantly problematic differently. Both James and I are experiencing micro-freezes that final a couple of second or so, notably throughout busy public occasions. Note that these weren’t current when enjoying on the identical beforehand.
A fast look on the mbadive Destiny 2 group websites reveals many gamers complaining of the very same factor. The present most up to date publish on the Bungie Help discussion board is titled ”1.zero.6.1 Patch Random 1 second Stutters”. A Bungie helper has responed saying: “Thank you in your studies. I’ve begun forwarding info to inside groups for investigation.”
Meanwhile the Reddit thread devoted to the patch is filled with PC gamers describing the problem. A typical remark reads: “Ever since this hotfix, I have been getting very sudden freezes. Every sixty seconds or so, my display screen will cling for what seems like perhaps 1/10th of a second, simply lengthy sufficient to be noticeable. Before and after, it is silky easy 60fps. This wasn’t taking place earlier than immediately’s replace.”
Hopefully Bungie acknowledges the problem and rolls out one other hotfix quickly, because it appears odd that one thing seemingly really easy to identify was shipped. I’ve requested them for remark. On a extra cheery observe, the bug that led to public occasions typically being empty has been resolved. The ones I’ve tried this morning have all had a number of different guardians current. So at the least you will not should be salty by yourself.
UPDATE: Bungie Help has tweeted to say they’re wanting into the problem.
