The big Destiny 2 news this week was the launch of Season of Arrivals and the reveal of the next expansion, Beyond Light. And the insta-kill grenade launcher , I suppose. But big things are happening in the Crucible, too. Bungie announced today that it's removed skill-based matchmaking from all of the game's PvP playlists except Elimination, Survival, and Survival: Freelance. Bungie said the change was made in response to community feedback, and should shorten queue times, improve connection quality in matches, and will also "play into the strengths of Crucible being a bombastic, frenetic action game," where the priority is having fun rather than winning at all costs.

Destiny 2 Trials Of Osiris: Rewards And Weapons Of The Popular PvP Game Mode
Trials of Osiris has been plagued by cheating, glitch exploits, and lopsided matchmaking. Problems around match fixing first came to light around February Trials Report, a third-party site that analyzes player data, noticed that of the 23, players who had gone flawless so far that weekend meaning they got seven wins and no losses 16, had five kills or fewer.
Update - March Bungie's issued another fix for the match rejoin issue in Destiny 2's Trials of Osiris PvP mode, so Trials is scheduled to return yet again later today. This bug originally surfaced around February 26, when players found a way to turn Trials into a passive gambling ring by juggling characters and rejoining matches as part of a string of game-breaking exploits that will live in infamy. Bungie issued a preliminary fix last week, but after the bug shut down Trials once again, the studio warned that the problem may not be fully resolved until the release of a larger update planned for March Other changes are still planned for the coming update, most notably Eyes of Tomorrow damage and drop rate bug fixes, but Bungie hurried to release the Trials fix this week so that the event could reopen this weekend. Here's hoping Trials can actually run for its full duration this time.
