Going for Glory
Progression isn’t just achieving new levels of Power, we also look at how players are rising through ranks of Valor and Glory. We’ve gotten some questions on the hows and whys of the ranking system. PvP Design Lead Derek Carroll has some answers.
Lord Saladin returns—with updated rewards!
BEGINS: Tuesday, May 22
ENDS: Tuesday, May 29
The game is Control!
The ways in which players earn rewards have also been updated for Season 3. Saladin will feature a similar reputation system to Vanguard, where players can climb the ranks by turning in Iron Banner Tokens. Each reputation rank up will lend progress to unlocking desired rewards.
New Ornaments have also been added, each with specific objectives for players to complete in the Iron Banner playlist when available.

This is their report.

This week was a wild one. I had a great time last night showing PopeBear the ropes in our 1v1 match. Cheers to the Destiny Community Podcast team for taking on Team Bungie in the first “Bungie Versus” stream. They bested us through refined teamwork and perfect strategy. Cheers to all involved!
We’ll be planning more of these matches in the future, and we’ll have more information in the coming weeks. We learned a lot yesterday in terms of running the show, so we’re refining our layout for how we determine the game modes, match lengths, etc. Got suggestions for who should be featured next? Feel free to shoot me a tweet (@A_dmg04) or post a suggestion to the Community forum on Bungie.net.
See you on Mars? Maybe we’ll bump into each other. I have a bit of data to collect.
