Yeah, definitely easier as you get higher. (Destiny)

(I mean, they're easier than they used to be - not so long ago, there was a time limit, as well. If you didn't finish them FAST, you were booted to orbit.


Why would the game boot you to orbit while you are still playing an activity?

Because there was a time limit. You had to finish in 15 (or 20, depending on the level) minutes or The Darkness Enveloped You. (Now it still says that, but at the time limit all of your revives go away, so the next death ends the activity. You're allowed to finish the current run.)

It's not exactly like Nightfalls, where it's just that the scoring gets borked - because the score doesn't really matter in Lost Sectors. (There are no rewards for score thresholds, and no triumphs tied to a specific score.) I guess they decided (when they opened these lost sectors, a year ago or so) that in place of reducing an irrelevant score, they'd simply put a hard stop in at a fixed time.

That changed a few months ago, I think. Or at the beginning of this season? I don't remember. Now you can take as long as you want, as long as you don't die.
