Bungie.net has announced that a new update patch for Destiny has officially gone live. Update 126.96.36.199 features a hotfix patch to make changes to certain matchmaking settings. This new patch will help players in matchmaking for the Crucible in Destiny by prioritizing connection quality over other factors. You can check out the full breakdown of the update patch below.
- Updated all of the matchmade Crucible playlists to make use of the higher priority on latency settings
- Enabled Damage Referee for all Crucible playlists
It’s almost hard to believe it’s taken this long for a connection issue for Destiny’s matchmaking on the Crucible to come up. At least the problem has apparently been fixed for now.
In addition, the “Damage Referee” is now enabled for all Crucible playlists. The Damage Referee is a system to improve the overall matchmaking experience to help out when things go wrong. How well this system works or if it even helps remains to be seen. More details on the Damage Referee are available at this link.
Destiny is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. New details on the game’s big spring update are expected soon during an upcoming livestream event. Destiny is expected to receive a massive expansion sometime later this year. Destiny 2 is currently scheduled for a 2017 release.
