I don’t know the technology behind servers for video games like Destiny, but for quite some time now I have seen no other players. I was on Mars for quite some time, gathering relic iron and waiting for a public event, and I didn’t see a single soul the whole time. I went to Venus to gather spirit bloom and saw . . . not a single player. I went to The Tower and saw no one. But, right now, the little “radar” map in the upper left corner is showing people around me (blue dots and blue arrows); yet I see no one. The radar on the planets never indicated that anyone was around the whole time.
I haven’t found anything online about this, so if you know anything about it I’d love to hear it. I would also love to find a REAL place where a person can report bugs and tech issues to Bungie. If you know of such a place, please leave a comment! Also, if you’d like to do the special level 26 strike for The Thorn hand cannon, let me know–my son needs to get that finished and it’s a bit of a strain doing it alone.
Update. This morning, the issue was still the same. I went to the Bungie “help” page (what a joke), didn’t see a post with the same issue, so reported it. But, having the notion that Bungie wasn’t going to actually help, I took the disc out of the XBOX one, put in Garden Warfare, and played a round. All was good – it’s not our internet settings or the like. I then put the Destiny disc back in, signed in, and now I can see players. This is just weird and we have not had issues like this with other games. There is also a weird sound issue that is unique!
