“This week at Bungie, the Drifter keeps drifting.
We are now in our third week of Season of the Drifter and there’s a lot going on. All three tiers of the Reckoning are live. The Thorn quest is available for those who are brave enough to wield a dark weapon. Gambit Prime is on Legion’s Folly for the first time this week, and it will migrate to Emerald Coast next week.
If you’re looking for lore, Invitations of the Nine started last Friday, and it continues for many weeks to come. Complete the first invitation to discover the backstory of the Drifter and his ties to the mysterious Nine. Everyone who accepted the first invitation last Friday will have a new experience this week. If you missed it last week, don’t worry. You can pick it up this Friday. There won’t be a cutscene every week, but that definitely wasn’t the last one you’ll see.”

This Week At Bungie - 3.7.19
“This week at Bungie, we launched Season of the Drifter.
The Drifter has moved down to the annex. His new operation is online and ready for players. Gambit was just the beginning. Gambit Prime is the new hotness.
Winning a match of Gambit Prime is just the start of your new journey to max Power. For Annual Pass owners, the Reckoning is the featured PvE activity for this season. To reach your full potential as a Gambit Prime teammate, follow the loop between the two challenges. Take your Gambit Prime rewards and four-person fireteam into the Reckoning to earn new armor that will unlock powerful new perks, making you even more deadly when you return to Gambit Prime. Here is a taste of what the Reckoning has to offer.
• Top Tier •
Tier 1 of the Reckoning was your first step. From here, the challenges and the rewards escalate! Tier 2 goes live tomorrow and ups the difficulty, adding additional objectives, areas, and a new boss to the battle. Next Friday, we'll up the ante one more time.
Tier 3 is considered endgame content, requiring Power level 680 to enter and meant to offer a worthy challenge to all you powerful Guardians as you gear up to max Power this season. The activity is set to 690 so bring your best gear. We recommend forming up a fireteam for coordination, but matchmaking is still available to you.
Next week, we also have the Thorn quest kicking off on March 12. A mysterious spot in the EDZ holds a clue. Seek it out to start your journey in search of the Hand Cannon shrouded in darkness. At the same time you set off in search of Thorn, the Allegiance quest will become available. This offers you a choice: Stand with the Vanguard or cast your lot with the Drifter. The choice is made per character, so if you have multiple characters, they can each choose their own path.
On March 12, Gambit Prime will also be featuring a new map, Deep Six. Invitations of the Nine and Reckoning Tier 3 will be available on March 15. Keep your eyes on these dates. The Drifter has new tricks up his sleeve.
• Come Get Us •
We’ve firing up our streaming studio again! Our last transmission featured a Raid Along with several representatives from the team that built Scourge of the Past. If you missed it, we saved it here for you.

POPULAR This Week At Bungie - 2.21.19
“This week at Bungie, the Drifter is preparing for a turn to lead the next season.
We’re nearing the end of Season of the Forge. Guardians have plundered the Black Armory of its secrets and weapons.

Before the Drifter takes center stage, we’ll be hosting a Raid-Along livestream featuring Scourge of the Past. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to build a raid from the ground up, this is your chance to peek behind the curtains here at Bungie.
• Scourge of the Past Raid Along
Date: Tuesday, February 26
Time: 10 AM–12 PM PST
Members of the Raid Test team will be fighting the good fight, as designers, artists, producers and more lend commentary on taking an idea and creating the greatest challenge our game has to offer.”

Ok so in Gambit why run and hide from an invader when you have zero, ZERO MOTES!! And let your team members that have motes take the hit? Like if your right next to a team member that has 10+ motes and you have 0 and an invader shows up and you literally turn and run, and let that team mate take the hit. That's pretty low.
Now I understand you don't want to get taken out but hey. If you have no motes, then what's the cost of you taking one for the team. Or trying your best and taking that S.O.B out.?
POPULAR Out of Loyalty to Bungie
Out of Loyalty to Bungie I’ve purchased Destiny 2, since I’ve gotten all Halo games released by Bungie, and Destiny 1, but I am Extremely disappointed with this game, I spent money on this game and as a 15 year old teen, money is tough, and it wants me to buy the expansion pack to get past level 20, I’m so just sad to see them take this turn, and with high hopes I turn to Destiny 3, which I have heard whispers of coming out.
