Destiny servers collapse under the weight of returning Guardians

2 min read


I’ll never really understand the love for Destiny, but that’s okay – I don’t have to love or understand everything. If you’re one of the many, many people still regularly playing Destiny, then you’re probably already geared to jump in to Rise of Iron today.

Unfortunately, the sheer number of returning Guardians is giving Destiny’s servers a solid hammering. Users have been complaining of not being able to connect to the game since the new content went live.

Players have been getting a new animal-based warning, this time in the form of a Tapir. Naturally, Bungie is aware of the issues, and hopes to have them fixed post haste.

Those that do manage to bypass the Tapir have been put in to a queue – and that queue is very, very long.

Reports suggest that some in the queue are being kicked out, having to start the wait all over again. Hopefully these issues are all resolved within a few hours, so that our resident Destiny-head Darryn can stop crying.

Remember, if you’re jumping back in you’re going to need a character who’s at least at Level 40 – but if you’re still playing Destiny, chances are that won’t be a problem. You’ll also be able to get your light level all the way up to 385.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
