Trials of Osiris, Destiny 2's premier PvP mode, was disabled last weekend after issues caused by "fireteam rejoin functionality".
Considering the mode went offline just a week or so ago due to match-fixing issues, it's not been a great time for Destiny's top-tier competitive experience.
Destiny 2's Trials of Osiris Was Disabled Again Over The Weekend
Despite arriving in Destiny 2 in 2020, almost three years after the game's launch, Trials of Osiris is like that friend who you hope to see at the weekend, but you're pretty sure they don't want to hang out and are just expecting that "I can't make it" message.
In fact, community manager dmg04 posted on Twitter that there may not be a fix in place by the time next week's patch arrives - so we probably won't get to jump into Trials of Osiris this week, either.
"To set expectations, we may not have a full fix until the Stasis tuning patch on 3/23, meaning Trials may also be disabled next weekend as well," he explained.
That's not a good look for a mode that was a core part of Destiny 1 after it was introduced, and was long sought-after by the community in the years that followed.
For those that aren't aware, Trials of Osiris is a 3v3 activity where players bid to earn seven wins in a row to earn the top rewards.
Unfortunately, many players have taken to varying extremes to ensure a win. There was the aforementioned match-fixing issue, while some players are so keen to simply complete matches that they'll spawn in and jump from the map to make it finish more quickly so they can secure a reward.
This time, players were using a "dummy" character to prevent any losses, before switching to another character with a stacked "Trials Card" if they felt it was going to be an easy win.
As you can imagine, disabling the mode halfway through a weekend has been a painful experience for some. Many players responded to Bungie's tweet with screenshots of their 6-win tickets, understandably miffed that they won't get their "Flawless" reward.
It's clear that Trials of Osiris is both struggling to provide the high-level competitive environment that Bungie wants, as well as having an issue giving players a reason to play.
Here's hoping for some more updates as we approach the Witch Queen.
