If you were looking forward to playing the next Trials Of Osiris this weekend in Destiny, well you’re out of luck. Because this weekend’s Trials Of Osiris has been cancelled. But Bungie has a good reason for cancelling the event.
Recently, there was a glitch discovered in Destiny where players can obtain an unlimited amount of heavy-weapon ammo. And to no surprise, players exploited the hell out of it. So in order to fix the game-breaking glitch, Bungie has decided to cancel both the Trials Of Osiris and putting the next Iron Banner event on hold.
Bungie responded in a blog post saying,
When we learned that some Guardians had discovered a way to earn unlimited rockets, we knew it was time for a bug hunt. Rather than punish players for playing the game in a way we didn't predict, we've been waging an investigation into our code. These things happen, so please don't panic. We're on the case--and we've slayed more dreaded bugs than these.
While the bug is a doozy, Bungie seems confident that they will be able to slay the problem with ease. I like that they do not believe in punishing players for exploiting a bug. When The Division experienced a series of bugs, players who exploited them suddenly found themselves under fire for doing so. I don’t know a single play who wouldn’t exploit a bug if they found one in-game. It’s not the players’ faults that there’s a crack in the system. They’re just there to spot the bug and enjoy it for as long as they can. It happens. And what if you accidentally exploit it and don’t even realize it? Does that mean you should get in trouble too? Kudos to Bungie for recognizing it’s not our fault if we totally take advantage of a silly bug.
Hopefully the bug will be fixed soon and all can return back to normal.
