Destiny 2 will see the return of hardcore PvP event Iron BannerDestiny 2 will see the return of hardcore PvP event Iron Banner
Notellin Avatar
Anyone who has played Destiny knows there is absolutely nothing hardcore about Iron Banner. The increased damage from being higher level is so minimal it's non existent.

Only thing Iron Banner is good for is that it hands out legendary loot like candy compared to normal crucible.

But to call it hardcore is a huge exaggeration.

Last time Bungie talked about the IB power curve (around TTK) they explained that a difference of 10 Light equates to 2% in damage. That's not nothing with damage so finely balanced across weapon archetypes, but yeah, if you're 390+ IB is no big deal.


Clearly you're in that position, but consider the rest of the player base. Many aren't anywhere near max Light, and to them IB looks pretty intimidating. Personally, I know I've noticed the difference in IB early in an expansion, or on an alt, before I got my Light level up.


But hey, these things are relative. IB has nothing on Trials, for sure.

I felt exactly the same at launch, but it's much better now. When was the last time you played?

I traded it in for something like $2.50 about 9 months ago.

I'd still say just don't report on it unless you have something to report. I mean as evidence goes, I'll see yours and raise you this:

Ha, yeah I remember that. Different game and circumstances though, and in this case you've got good journos and a reliable tipster all saying it's happening.


Given we report on rumours for other games if the source seems credible, at this point we wouldn't really be doing our jobs if we didn't do so for Destiny 2, especially as it'll probably be huge.


Anyway, shouldn't be long now until we know for sure. If it doesn't happen, come back here and mock me.

I understand, which is why we wouldn't cover it if it weren't looking likely. Kotaku are prepared to go so far as to outright confirm it.


Check out our EWK for the evidence:

Uh.. *husband. I know those two aren't mutually exclusive in GoT but come on.

Yup, my bad. I've read all the books and watch the show, bit of an oversight by me. Corrected.
