Didn't Garden of Salvation come out two days ago?

(If not, forgive me--I was getting some excess fluid removed.)

I can’t help but feel bad for Bungie. Just imagine—a huge encounter that took years to conceptualize, build, design, test and foolproof, and the public tears it apart in seconds. That’s messed up!!

It WAS three-manned two days after launch, though.

As I posted when it happened, a trio of PC players blasted through the entire raid. There aren't exactly many exploits to the raid (other than using Titans to avoid the wipe mechanic), so it was more flawless execution of the existing mechanics than anything, which is genuinely impressive.

There's at least one more. *3rd Encounter Spoilers*

We managed to pull one off somewhat by chance during Wednesday night's run. For the most part, we intended to run it legit, but we knew the bug existed and our Nightstalker said he'd try to make it work if everything lined up just right.

And then it did.*

For me, this is kind of like the Atheon's fall and Crota's lag cheeses. I'm glad I was able to see it once, but the encounter is fun enough that, for the most part, I'd prefer to run it as intended. Unlike the Riven fight which I want to legitimately exactly one time and then never again.

Final boss has been 2-manned now...

A little over a week since the raid launched, complete with two-manning the tethers.
