Loading into the Tower (Destiny)

by cheapLEY @, Monday, February 03, 2020, 07:27 (232 days ago)

What the hell happened? It just took me nearly six minutes to load into the Tower.

When I landed, it seems like everyone else landed at the same time. 12 people scattered at soon as I hit the ground.

Six minutes is absolute insanity.

This is indicative that a whole new instance was created right then. Maybe you were waiting on everyone to load up and someone had really terrible load times.

You can get a string of new joiners, back to back just as you were about to load in each time.

What is the upper limit for Tower population I wonder?

Weirdly, sometimes it won't let me join my friends on grounds of "destination full" even when it's at 17/24.

According to reddit

It's the same change that was applied to Crucible loading times as a QoL fix.

In Crucible it just means sitting in the flight screen instead of a black screen while loading everyone in. Unfortunately in the tower it means you cant load in on your own if someone else starts joining the same instance while you're en route. Have to wait for everyone, and with no matchmaking you can get a very slow trickle.

Reddit info though so pinch of salt.

Can't really do any Bounty Stuff, but you can clear out your postmaster, decrypt engrams, and load up the vault as you need. It's far far faster if that's all you need to do.

But this is Destiny.Bounties.Org

I often totally forget the farm even exists.

Recently Tower loads have been a little better for me...Around 1-2 minutes, down from that staggering six.

Anyone else experiencing different times?

Happens to me about 1/12 for the past 6 months or more?
