Bungie Outlines Changes Intended To "Create Unified Experience" For Destiny 2 Ritual Activities

Over the past few seasons in Destiny 2, Bungie has been working on adjustments to how players earn rewards and reputation via the Ritual rank system. Yesterday, in the weekly (aptly named) This Week at Bungie, a portion of the post was dedicated to the topic of rituals and reputation, and what's being done to make the experience better for players.

As mentioned, some of these changes have already been in the works, but in a preparatory way -- particularly with some backend work that occurred at the start of Season 14. With Season 15 on the way, the devs will be renaming the ritual reputation systems to Crucible, Gambit, and Vanguard. Infamy and Valor are to be retired, but Glory will remain as the competitive Crucible reputation system. In addition, they're introducing Trials Ranks. There's not a lot of information on the last bit, as they intend to provide more later.

As the systems are renamed, they're also being rebalanced to have somewhat equal progression times, allowing players to reset them a little bit faster than they can currently. They're also eliminating ritual-specific rules that can slow things down and exchanging win streak bonuses for activity streak bonuses.

While the post doesn't go into explicit detail on each of the ritual reputation ranks, they do cover Vanguard Ranks. These are tied to Commander Zavala, meaning they now have a full ritual reputation all their own. Vanguard reputation can be earned by completing Strikes, Nightfalls, and Battlegrounds -- although Bungie suggest going for Nightfalls if you're really up for a challenge, the more difficult the better.

As is the case with all This Week at Bungie posts, there is other news players may be interested in checking out -- things like the Bungie Foundation charity update. It looks like things are going well and y'all broke that $500k wall, so there's a lore reading waiting for you. Excellent job, folks. There's still a week left and about another $150k to go to hit the goal, if you want a chance to get in on it. If you want to see the lore reading an all the other news, be sure to hit up the post on the Bungie site.
