The ENTIRE Destiny Community Just Got PUZZLED – Destiny 2

The ENTIRE Destiny Community Just Got PUZZLED – Destiny 2

Some Footage in this video is from players
around the community, their links will be in the description of this video, as well
as all music too! I want to give a massive shoutout to literally
everyone that is in the Destiny Community! All of you, actually all of you! Without your
help revealing codes this wouldn’t be possible, so if I show clips of people or spreadsheets,
say names, just know you’re still apart of it all, just can’t add all names, thank
you! Never did I think that Bungie would have hit
us with a puzzle this elaborate and collaborative in the same season that we had an exotic “quest”
that took us 15 minutes to complete. Corridors of Time has not only been one of my favorite
events of all time, but serves as a beautiful spiritual successor to Niobe Labs & Outbreak
Prime. We have a big story to tell including secret missions, lore to reality, Magic Hexagons,
ARG sequences, community collaboration, spreadsheet stories, and to top it all off, a jarring
climax! Bust out your thinking tin foil hat and come through a journey of time with me
as we talk about the forest that is truly infinite, Niobe Labs 2: Vex Boogaloo. We already
have videos on the channel dedicated to these stories, but it’s important I talk about
them again. Bungie is no stranger to excellent puzzles and communities coming together, I
mean hell Luke Smith and his team on World of Warcraft were the first to complete the
Scepter in the Shifting Sands and he still has the title of Scarab Lord on there! Now,
I have never played World of Warcraft, but reading up on the steps involved for that
sounds reflective of what is done in the philosophy of these community events on Destiny. Outbreak
Prime for example had players looking through an Owl Sector Rabbit hole, then getting a
sequence of codes for the ARG map of the room, to get a final piece to start a quest of the
weapon. Niobe Labs had players using ideals from the lore of the forges and mapping together
their clues for Niobe to help them solve a very difficult enemy filled, race against
the clock challenge. Even more recent than those 2 events, Bungie gave everyone who owned
the collectors edition of Shadowkeep, a rune to solve the puzzle and when opened had little
unreadable codes for each person, with hundreds of different codes to read. This turned into
the community forming chapters of lore from it. All of these will strike in similarity
with this new secret event of Destiny, but I want to make the message clear, these are
all very well done events and this one may take the prize as the best puzzle we’ve
ever seen Bungie do, but also the most perplexing finale! So, on to the story of the community
that cracked the code! January 14th, 2020. Bungie help releases a statement that server
maintenance will be delayed and that the new hotfix won’t be put in. This threw me for
a loop when I woke up to everyone tweeting that Osiris had a non advertised mission and
that it was just to explore the corridors of time! Myself and many others immediately
jumped on to see what the heck this could all be about, but we also knew this wasn’t
the first time Bungie has dropped something on us like this. The thing that was off for
me at first was, why did Osiris just have the secret mission? These missions are usually
hidden in other places around the world or in the case of Niobe, in a sequence of symbols
to start, but what we would all come to find later is that this was the point, Osiris gave
us the quest and it wasn’t a hassle to start because we would be here looking for answers
for DAYS or if you waited weeks, but more on that later! You were thrown into the corridors
of time with no real objective, just to explore this truly infinite forest with an array of
symbols and I want you to pay attention to these callouts because they will come into
play a lot in the time spent doing this puzzle! Traveler, Clover, Diamond, Hex, Snake, Plus,
and for later on Blank. All of these outside of Traveller & Blank are going to be potential
doorways every single time you need them for a sequence of doors. Think about it like this,
you have 5 potential paths each time you enter a room in a needed 7 sequence code to reach
what we will call a checkpoint. To even guess the right room once is ⅕ . Now do that 7
times of guessing the correct path. You are left with the chance of guessing ONE PATH
at 1 and “78,125”. Now keep in mind their are 18 different 7 sequence paths to find,
one 11 sequence path, and then the final path, which we will get to later in the video, and
you have a hell of a guessing game at hand. Or, you have clues hour. You know that grandfather
clock at your parents house that is so loud and you just ask yourself why even have it
if it makes this loud ring and OWWW my ears, why are these so loud? Anyways,these clocks
reveal that the top of the hour is significant in some way and this is also the case for
the obelisks inside of Destiny 2. The season of Dawn introduced these obelisks for guardians
to connect planet to moon, to shore, and even the tower for some purpose that we will probably
be shown at the end of the season, but these obelisks had an odd thing about them. Symbols,
symbols much like the ones we already describes around the outside! What we didn’t know
until this event was well underway was that the obelisks were the key to the sequence.
At the top of every hour, the obelisks would spit out a bunch of symbols in a different
order for players to relay to teammates inside the corridors of time. The way to read this
was always the same on the obelisks with one starting top right then moving clockwise,
till the 7th symbol was in the middle. Once you ran through these 7 sequences, you made
it to a room called the time lost vault. What was this? The time lost vault had two major
keys to it, a piece of lore to collect and a puzzle piece in the center! This piece would
be a small piece of a map to the end goal! Here’s the catch though, every hour, we
knew a new route to that goal. This started out with many hardcore players asking themselves
why would Bungie give us the answer every hour? I want to solve it myself, not hand
fed. Well, this quickly became, holy crap the answer is taking too long to get here,
someone please make it 30 minutes, I want to see my hexagons! Players were so perplexed
by these 6 side panels around the middle hexagon and the lights in the center of the hexagon!
I want to break this down so nobody feels confused in the future, but I kind of doubt
this will make full sense. These rooms were actually puzzle pieces, you hit the ??? and
three things happened. #1, you recieved lore, #2, you saw a grave with a sword, a ghost,
and a guardians crest at the foot, WAS THIS A TEASER FOR THE REWARD? And #3, you looked
down and saw the symbol in the middle with surrounding doors and symbols around it. This
hexagon was made up of parts to connect onto a map The middle symbol meant that you were
to go through that symbols door, but the lights or lack thereof, were created in a way that
you needed to reorder your symbol path to fit them, but the cue was the outside hexagons,
which needed something to mirror to be able to connect, so for example, if I had traveler,
traveler, hex, hex, snake, traveler, traveler on one side, that meant I had to mirror those
little symbols to another one for it to fit. See, told you it still wouldn’t make sense.
This went on for a long time and players truly were trying to bruteforce early to find the
end, but they were going to be in for one. We knew about 2 symbols thanks to a Bungie
Press kit that had been leaked earlier, thanks Lono, and other than that, we didn’t know
the rest. Players tried to use the other symbols as clues to put together the next route, but
their just wasn’t a route to be had, the obelisks were the only way, so once all except
for 3 remaining were found, the community came together in BULK! This is where the community
clustered together! With over 1000 possibilities left and only 3 codes out, this was madness
as far as which route to take, but who cares about chances when thousands of people in
the destiny community were able to find our HUGE path we had been waiting all day for
and over 1000 possibilities remaining in only… ya know, 20 MINUTES! Yeah, once the community
found the path, it was time to beat the secret mission, grab that sword off of the grave
and slay out! This was about to be a pretty cool one day event and.. Oh, an emblem too?!
No worries, I’ll just be taking my sw… why did I get teleported back here again?
Oh no! It’s NOT OVER!?! Oh boy, how innocent we were on Day 1. You recieved lore, an emblem,
and a new code when you made it to this seemingly final room, but no mission complete and hey,
my friend revealed a different code than me? Why can I keep revealing codes? Players originally
had speculated a couple of ideas, #1: We were going to have to wait for all the other hint
rooms and do those, that was quickly debunked, and #2: Theories of taking just your fireteam
and redoing the other sequence, but with your new codes were had, but the main problem with
this was that the middle symbol most of the time, was a blank! This wasn’t a glitch,
this was for real! We were about to be in this room for the next 6 days! From being
apart of the main team of streamers, data wizards, map artists, and transcribers, some
of the stories I will share will be the first time anyone is ever hearing these publicly,
so get ready because just like the puzzle itself, this video really begins here! Night
1 was a shock to all of us, not only were we just beginning this puzzle, but when the
realization of how long this was going to take hit us, we were baffled. Yes, you heard
that clip correctly, 1 match in 2 hours on raid secrets discord and honestly
that was surprising given that we were about to need 5040 total unique pieces and we would
need to match almost all of them to find a path to the solution! Originally on Night
1, we were throwing all of our community photos into a google drive that was shared, thinking
that, well their can’t be that many and this would organize them, but we were thinking
on a smaller scale since the final one to get here was only 18 pieces, so it wasn’t
unrealistic that we were only going to be looking in the max 1000 range and given how
Outbreak Primes ARG was around 1000 pieces, we were thinking on that scale. We were counting
the number of sides that had blanks to throw these pics in at first, but this quickly sparked
confusion as the community was mistaking the reveal room unique code for rooms before it.
Also, this was just not an efficient way to sort through data. Day/ Night #2 kicks off
and WOW do we have a different system entirely, we have now ASCENDED into spreadsheets and
mapping out data entry points! TJ09 built a code that would map our data for us and
without this, we wouldn’t be where we are! This was about to be HUGE! This was our old
map… okay ponder that for a second, and BOOM that’s the new map.. My job, was what
I will refer to as toothpaste capping. It felt like the factory job since I was rotating
players into my game to screenshot their unique code. I want to add something I didn’t say
earlier. This unique code changed every hour for a max of two hours and was changing for
every character you had on your account. So, a max of 6 total codes, per person, per day,
every day, for everybody who owns an account on destiny. People were rotating into the
game in masses, I don’t even think I ever had a point where someone wasn’t in my game.
The reason why I especially was taking screenshots and putting them in a spreadsheet for the
rest to transcribe was because other than organization, it also was meant for us to
take a nice clear image of the floor. Just look at some of the bad screenshots we received!
I wish so badly in the next puzzle, the room is dark for my eyes sake and that there’s
a spot where players can take their screenshots very clearly. For all the screenshots that
myself and MANY others in the community were taking and adding, it just wasn’t enough,
just like the sleep we were all going to be having this week! Transcribers and data entry
team was going to have another problem of their own! This is the day that we decided
to bring in another coding expert outside of our own. We met another person that without
their program for our spreadsheet, none of this would be done yet! Zycore built a code
that would auto sort our transcribed data. So, think about it like this, if you are entering
a ton of unique pieces, it’s hard to keep track of everything right? How do you make
sure that what you’re entering isn’t a duplicate? Use this system that he built.
With this, anything that showed up in column M was detecting if the piece was a dupe or
not. So, any false or unique would automatically show up as so and if it was true, you knew
to stop there! We went from 300 transcribed data points to 1129 in a day, Now here’s
another major problem that we discovered with this. We had made a ton of transcribing errors
and this was not going to be a fast process to fix. When I say that by this point we had
over 9000 data entries, that sounds good, but I’d say a good 7800 were going to be
scrapped! This took pretty much all day to fix the errors, but lots of people in the
community just kept going while some spent over 24 hours fixing these entry points! This
was causing madness to occur! The map was starting to look very
very clear, these are the days where the whole community was coming together and working
harder than ever, we wanted to see this done as much as the next person, to the point where
you literally had people sleeping on stream, just to get back to transcribing and screenshotting!
We were going to need help! I don’t mean in the sense of sharing data, no, I mean in
the sense of teams to transcribe, screenshot, dump data, and map. This was already happening
on day #3, but day 4 & 5, I’m not even joking when I say that we were receiving resumes
from people and that we legitimately had a hiring process for people to be taking on
these jobs! It was officially like working a 9-5, except much longer hours. We had people
who were showing us their stuff that we had to even fire for some jobs, we had people
who couldn’t commit long term, and then we had the rat pack who were like coked out
monsters in a wolf of Wall Street like office! Seriously, when I say that 500 data entries
needed to be transcribed and the rat pack was done in 30 minutes, I mean it! We
also had a ton of help from other communities such as
chat rooms [sweat bobbers], discords, reddit communities, and other websites along the
way! This was truly a community project from the ground up and a big thank you to everyone
out their who helped, but we are NOT done! By the end of day #5, it was apparent, we
were going to need certain puzzle pieces to begin mapping out our route, so we sent out
bounties for puzzle pieces by using surrounding data to know which side fit where! Anyone
who wanted to try and brute force was going to run into some problems with the official
amount of unique codes being 5040, which is 7 factorial, Bungie loves their 7’s, and
the possible route ranging from 30 to 50 potential doors to be opened, you were looking at odds
in the 20-70 million chance range since you didn’t know all symbols and you didn’t
know if a puzzle piece door was going to be blocked on the map. The map had also hit the
point where we knew it was going to be a full on maze for us to draw through, just like
the 18 piece one before it! Another thing that I noticed to be very cool during my time
taking screenshots was that the emblem you got for hitting reveal also had a purpose.
Sure, it was a reward for hitting the reveal room, but it was also an incentive for players
to show their code. Think about it like this, if you were to give thousands of people the
option to come in and help a puzzle they wouldn’t get a reward for till it was solved, sure,
some would help, but not everyone. This emblem insured that people were revealing their codes
and we found that by day #4, that Bungie was rotating a new code for everyone every hour,
each character, instead of a max of 6, you now had a max of 72 per day! We went from
2680 to 3460 contiguous puzzle pieces in 4 hours as compared to about 100 in the 5 hours
before it! We were getting very close, but a few obstacles still stood in our way! I
am all for gatekeeper… wait… I am collaborating gatekeeper… wait.. I am all for collaboration
and helping one another and oppose gatekeeping information because it just feels wrong! During
this process their was so many accusations of us withholding information for other sites,
discords, reddits, etc. This was simply not true, all data was made available as soon
as we possibly could have made it! The other problem with letting everyone see the sheet
we were working away at every second was that Google sheets couldn’t keep up and was SLOW
from the traffic! So slow and so much data on these, that Google shut us down actually!
They shut us down and thought we were trying to flood their servers or in other terms,
DDOS them! This is such a hard topic to talk about because I feel that what I’m about
to say will upset some greatly, but that is not my intent! We tried so many different
spreadsheets, data collection, other websites, and slowed down a lot to try to work with
everyone because let’s be real, this wouldn’t even be possible without everyone! The problem
here is that we may have worked with almost too many different sites & data entries. Look,
there’s nothing wrong with this and I love that so many wanted to collaborate data, but
I also felt that this may have slowed us down in doing so. The main reason was that we already
had a process that was working and then it was like shifting new corridor management
every day! Some methods were great, but data wasn’t transcribed well, others had great
data, but the sites had trouble working! This is a tough balancing act because everyone
should be included, but we had a system that we were just bangin out data and getting it
done! This also created a negative headspace in the process because nobody was sleeping
and their was a clash on what we should be doing constantly, but this turned into a groove
eventually. I think this will be a learning curve for everyone involved in future puzzles
going forward! This was the final day, the day that we were going to beat this damn puzzle,
the day that the map was going to be given a path, and the day where we could all reflect
on the crazy week it had been, this was also in a way bittersweet. The people I have met
on this journey made it special and I could tell that Bungie designed this puzzle for
all walks of communities and players to come together. As we neared the final hours, we
shifted from data collection to mostly just bounty hunting puzzle pieces. It was insane
because due to the viewership through streams and social media, we were able to track all
of our bounties in very very short time! The other thing was that the map team was working
endless hours to get this thing done and was feeling the pressure from everyone wanting
to see the progress since the new map was to have over 1000 new pieces added and lots
of them were ones that Sweatcicle and others had drawn a path for! The final stretch to
the madness being over was happening! Zycore pulled a play that only few knew about, he
decided to put in a fake symbol at the end! A diamond. This could have thrown us into
a different room, or, the correct path! In the final moments, the data team, streamers,
map editors and transcribers were pulled into one Voice channel to go over the code [parisito]!
And the rest was history! Yes, that was me legitimately crying! With over 100 hours put
in by almost everyone from this community and all the others listed in the graphic,
this moment was special and culminated everything we loved about community wide puzzles! Now
it was time to claim our sword? The final voice lines showed us that the grave in the
corridors was not saints, but our grave, the grave of the guardian that avenged Cayde-6,
and the grave that had a significant story clearly. Does this mean we changed our path
in time? Does this mean someone saved us? I’ll let you wait for the My Name is Byf
video to explain all of that, but for now, we knew one thing. The quest gave us a weapon
core, that core was to be returned to Saint 14 and the quest led us to change our fate
and kill a boss in the Hallowed Lair strike, However, this gave us what many had feared
or thought it could. This was not a sword at all, actually this was a weapon that was
already planned on the road map a week from now, this was the Bastion. A fusion rifle
shotgun kinetic hybrid. A weapon that shot hexagon forms and a weapon that players would
be at Bungie’s throat about. I want to say a couple of things before I ask your opinion
so hold onto it for just a second. The thing I can really appreciate is our roadmap isn’t
exactly as planned, we can jumpstart some pieces in it, making it more malleable. I
mean we literally jumped into the future to snag a weapon so everyone in the community
could use it early. I also think the weapon is very unique and interesting, it adds a
new presence to the fusion archetype and is a blast to shoot. The problems that I and
most of the community can probably agree on are as follows. I think if this wasn’t on
the roadmap or have been datamined, more people would love this weapon, but I have a perspective
of someone who chose to stay up all week to get it done, my choice, not Bungie’s fault.
I also felt that this puzzle, although not gatekept, should have been more inclusive
for the whole community, remember, my perspective is a bit jaded considering I was apart of
the core of it. The other thing was that I felt we were teased with a sword and trust
me if this isn’t over and we do get the sword, expect a video on that, but the sword
was on our grave and etched into it for a reason, Saint called it our favorite weapon
and yes it was, we killed Oryx in his original form to have the chance to unlock swords,
so getting Bastion felt odd because we have never used it before. Also, the dialogue at
the end, saint says the weapon will never be used against a guardian again, but this
thing slays in the crucible and isn’t insane inside of Strikes and Raids? No matter what,
when you have a puzzle like this and players don’t get EXACTLY what THEY want, you can’t
please everyone with the reward, I just wish some things were changed. I appreciate the
new approach to an exotic locked behind a puzzle as this ties story and gameplay in
very well and leads me to believe Bungie is getting more creative than ever in their storytelling,
I just still feel perplexed by this and I’m scared that after Niobe Labs demotivating
players to want to help with puzzles and now this reward to many feeling that it missed
the mark, that player participation will go away for these slowly and I don’t want the
puzzles to go away because for me, I didn’t care what the prize was, I just enjoyed the
puzzle with the people I met. Like I said before, making a dark mode in the reveal room
and adding a spot for players to take screenshots would have helped a lot for data, but also
maybe adding an in game map to the area to update our progression, and please don’t
even putting a sword on the grave. What did you think of the puzzle & reward? I think
it’s important to keep an open mind about this one! I think in general, SayNoToRage
summed up the whole experience pretty well. This is the “where are we now” portion
of the video and to be honest, this one may turn
into a part 2 if Bungie releases something else on the 28th of January because we just
got Bastion early, but who knows. Bungie received a lot of flack for the reward at the end and
I think your perspective on it comes from which type of player you were during this.
If you were in the position of the hardcore bunch, you probably aren’t too happy with
the reward, but if you had been lightly following and then scooped your reward, you probably
didn’t have all that much care for it. Bungie also released a post that they will be closing
the corridors of time starting on the 28th as well, so the puzzle will never be able
to be seen again after that and I personally feel like it’s erasing all of the work we
all put in as a community, but they’re probably just prepping that area for end of season
content. As of this current reset, players don’t even need to run the 30 sequence code
anymore, they can just pick up the quest from Saint 14 at any time, making the work put
in by the community feel like it’s also being lost in time. I think going forward,
this needs to not be the case as this allows the player base to appreciate the work to
get there, just feels hand holdy is all, especially given that the 28th, the quest would still
be with Saint 14 anyways. The morale of this story is not just expectations vs reality,
but more so unity and community, we quite literally formed together as an entire community
on this one and worked together to reach into the future to snag an exotic, how cool is
that?! The end of all of this is bittersweet for me because I met a ton of amazing people
from all over and I get to hopefully do justice in sharing those peoples stories, hopefully
as many as I could. All I know is that I hope more puzzles come to us in the future and
I hope we can all work together again. Through the ups and downs, the rewards, the feelings,
one thing was made clear, this UNITED us ALL! If you did enjoy this story, a like would
be greatly appreciated, as well as a subscription! We are getting close to partner on Twitch,
so if you want to catch me live, just click the link at the top of the description and
follow me there, anyways, next video will be a lot less time waiting and I appreciate all
of the support, BLOOPER TIME!

100 thoughts on “The ENTIRE Destiny Community Just Got PUZZLED – Destiny 2

  1. Tried to do my best to credit everyone involved and tell the story as objectively as possible! New video will be out sooner rather than later, thanks for all of the ❤️

  2. Correct me if i’m wrong but i keep hearing people say “it was OUR favourite weapon”. But i can’t find that anywhere in the dialogue. It says it was Saint’s favourite weapon, not ours. Our favourite weapon (the sword) was shattered in our final battle and is on top on our grave. Please correct me if i’m wrong

  3. Well done. My hat is off to all of you who worked on this. coding has passed me by. To me an old gamer I have to say I am very impressed with how all the people became one team and worked to solve a complicated puzzle. I do have one small question, is their another code that works that will get you a different weapon?

  4. Everyone and I literally mean EVERYONE was hyped up for a sword. That was the let down. Bungie executed Outbreak Perfected PERFECTLY! I dont see how they missed the mark on this one. smh

  5. This was an amazing event for one reason only…Unity… We are guardians. Not bloody vault Hunters or scavengers. We fight TOGETHER to protect the last city, this event in my eyes was bungie's way of telling us, we are guardians and coming together is the Destiny, bastion is a cool gun but it wasn't about the reward, stuff like this will never be about the reward, coming together, standing by each other side by side and working as one is the reward. And that's what I love about Destiny 2

  6. Chevy deleted that shit I died lol. Weapon should NOT have been on the roadmap. Highly doubt anything else is coming for this.

  7. I was hired to transcribe, and that spreadsheet was the gnarliest thing ive seen in a WHILE. It was really well organized two, We were grouped in pairs of two, and the spreadsheet would verify if we got the same codes from an image.

  8. Not sure why so many people thought it was going to be a sword, aside from the sword on the grave. However, swords have come to represent guardians in general, especially the player character as one of the crowing achievements was forging a sword using the core of oryx’s sword
    Also swords aren’t good don’t @ me

  9. As said by many "I loved the process and colaboration to solve the puzzle not necessary the end of it. I liked that b/c the puzzle was solved, we got the weapon earlier and I don't mind the CoT being closed but I think that the mission for Bastion should only be avalaible through the final puzzle map before it's closed (maybe keep it open for one more week) then after it, you could get from Saint-14. In my clan (around 50 players) only I got the mission through the final map puzzle (and in the first day), all the others waited and got it from Saint-14, this is not good and erases all the work to solve it. Finally, thank all of the ppl for the massive work to break this code, that gave us this amazing path throught the Corridors of Time <3

  10. I love it how Bungie makes Quests that really get the Community together and ive never seen that before so big and heavy that ppl have to do stuff like that

  11. I get the angst, but I get perplexed by the community sometimes. People complained that Devil's Ruin was too easy, so they give you a weeklong puzzle to solve and people are disappointed by the prize at the end?

  12. You really compare this to the Scarab Lord progression and amount of effort? Clearly you weren’t there around that time in WoW..

  13. Say no to rage is right, this perfectly illustrates the community … but also the game. Hardcore players LOVE this shit and have an idealistic vision of the community ; "we all needed each other (casuals and hardcore) to get there"…. BUT GET WHERE EXACTLY ? This is a great community for a shitty game. We're all in a relationship with an abusive partner.

    The reward was a gun that everyone gets in a week anyway ?? NO. Stop it bungo, stop undermining every fucking thing I do and/or achieve in your game. It started with mythoclast nerf, for me personally it ended with the whisper nerf … and they keep doing this shit.

  14. This was the biggest event I ever had the privilege to whitness. I did pretty much nothing, but the community coming together like this was something extra special. I'm really greatful to be part of this community. You guys are awesome!

  15. The rewards should have been a choice between Ghorn, Vex Mithoclas, or Dark Drinker! Either way everything about this was awesome. Thank you!

  16. I did everything and it did not drop for me. At some point I must have deleted the "save st.14 quest" IDK so now I cant get the weapon. This is such a broken part of this game you should be able to go back to collections and grab a quest you accidentally deleted. Bungie is so closed minded.

  17. I was there from the start and i dont care about bastion being a shit reward, the journey was the best ive seen the destiny community at, also it was amazing that it was finished on my birthday.

  18. it was ok to receive this weapon because the bastion was his weapon and he got the perfect paradoxon from us when we travelt in the past to safe him and make him the greatest titan and send him on the persuit to be like us, which led us to the point were he send us on the hunt for his weapon, this season had and still has a great storyline but of course we wanted the sword. when he said he possesed the sword after we died and he broke it means we can`t have it because we should have it right now but it exists only in destiny 1 which is bonkers to me

  19. Thank you for telling this story. Such a cool week. Stressed out so many times that it's gonna get cracked while I'm sleeping, and then finally had literally just got my morning coffee in front of me and sat down by my computer as I heard the words "We've got it! Everyone get to the same channel!" Had my girlfriend sitting beside me reading the map from the picture shared on Discord as I ran through CoT. Admittedly slightly disappointed that the end reward wasn't a sword, but damn did getting to the final vault and hearing that Saint-14 speech send a shiver through my spine.

  20. Should have been Raze Should have been Raze Should have been Raze Should have been Should have been Raze Should have been Raze Lighter

  21. Having been a part of this… it was amazing. You did a great job with editing this. It was a lot of long hours put in by some insane people and you summed it up very well!!!!

  22. anybody notice that Saint put our WEAPON in our grave, but we got a weapon CORE and not the weapon. I don't know if this is over just yet.

  23. Yeah It brought us together and that was pretty cool! but at the same time it's a good example of how lazy Bungie can be. They could of made a new exotic weapon after they were done making this big puzzle but they stuck with the asset they already had. (Sort of anyway because for some people the quest didn't even work. Saint 14 doesn't even have the quest for me in a tower🤦‍♂️) The quest was buggy, lazy and had as working days again just to get an exotic we already were going to get.. Regardless of the incompetence as far as the reward is concerned, The hard work the community has done was definitely a good example of how great the community is and that's one of the reasons why i play the game.

  24. Wanna comment again and say, even if it was a sword it would've been shelved and collecting dust in the Collections just as quickly as Bastion did. Swords are good for quick movement and all, but against every other weapons like the Wish-Ender pre-damage bug hotfix or Whisper of the Worm or some other exotic that did more damage and is currently highly sought after? Sword's are left with barely much use, and I've rarely if ever seen anyone do a raid with a god-rolled sword, and I've not seen anyone use them for speedrunning strikes either.

  25. The dialogue mislead a lot of people I'd say. That was the main issue that seemed to bait people, as well as the sword being on the grave to begin with

  26. I understand where evanf1997 is trying to say but lets be honest here Bungie could have introduced totally new exotic weapon that no one has ever seen in the game, a weapon like the legendary BFG from Doom, a weapon that defined the power of our guardians that we spend so many hours playing.

  27. As someone who is married to someone who worked heavily on Corridor Crunch, the last room of the puzzle should have been called "time wasted vault" rather than "time lost vault". Seriously though, it was an experience. You can't deny that. Thanks for emphasizing that in your video! As for Bastion, it fills a niche. I wonder if they changed gears and swapped out the intended weapon at the last minute for some reason. Hmm.

  28. It's pretty sad that it wasn't as thought out as something like outbreak prime. It was just a big jigsaw that had pieces locked behind even and odd hours, and days. It wasn't complex, it was severely tedious, and to top it all off, when it was finished by the community and the 30 doors were run through, Bungie then stated, they unlocked the quest for everyone and was removing the jigsaw code input mechanic. What a slap in the darn face. I spent time putting so many pieces together, to find out it was absolutely pointless. It has actually made me ready to uninstall, after i come back next season to finish what i already paid for. I'm out. Won't be touching bungie with someone else's D.

  29. Bungie keep hinting at stuff (sometimes too implicitly) and then blames the community for being unrealistic and then comes the fan-boys shit-talking everyone who is "criticizing" how said thing was communicated, just look at how Bungie keeps hinting at Trials, and again having a secret quest akin to Whisper and Outbreak and then finding that the reward was a road-mapped gun that was supposed to release a week later, that for me took away a lot of the enjoyment i had participating in this puzzle as it is my first, i hope Bungie does better next time because these moments in-game are supposed to be Legendary from beginning to end.

  30. I was one of the people who came in after the fact and snatched the gun after the puzzle was complete, but running through the corridors was a unique experience that I enjoyed and I was disappointed to see the next day that the corridors would be going away on the 28th.

  31. What weapon would you guys like to be buried with? I personally would like to be buried with my Lumina or Last word. Lumina says something and the last word is just baller.

  32. I could be wrong & I'd love to check the lore & look at it in more detail, but I think we're getting it wrong when we're saying bastion is our favorite weapon that we are entombed with.

    Bastion is one of saint's old weapons so it doesn't make sense that his old weapon would become our favorite. I think completing the 30 piece code allows us to travel across time & doing so allows us to discover the core for Bastion.

    I think our favorite weapon is a D1 sword since it was on top of our grave & that we were mislead a tiny bit since we could see it. Overall I loved watching the puzzle be solved & assisting with my pieces whenever I had a new one! I hope more things like this happen in the future.

    I don't think we'll get any of the D1 swords back since World-line Zero pretty much does what dark Drinker did except you have to sprint, & black talon is pretty much the arc sword.

  33. The puzzle was a waste of time how dumb are people all it did was unlock bastion quest a day early. I'm upset over this.

  34. Unless it's still going to tie in, they shouldn't've put a sword on the grave. That I think is the reason Bastion stung so hard.

  35. I was so dissapointed by the Bastion, but I couldn't really put a finger on why until this video. There was a sword on the grave. we are told we are getting the weapon on the grave. yet we don't get a sword. It's like telling someone you are giving them a chocolate chip cookie, except you actually give them an oatmeal raisin cookie. It's not like Oatmeal Raisin cookies are awful, but I was reasonably expecting chocolate chip, so don't get upset when I spit the cookie out and am upset with you. honestly, if they had not put that sword there and instead put bastion, or something hinting to the bastion. there would have been much, much less outrage

  36. Where does this community come together for chatting etc? I'm seeing chat channels and such…but I have no idea where that is.

  37. And now the community is pissed and wants bungies head for releasing this quest a week early when we expected a new heavy weapon but oh no we got bastion instead oh and let’s not forget that bungie then change it to where you don’t even have to the code just as long as you saved saint-14 you can go pick up the quest which is even more bs

  38. I only watched on Twitch and was only thinking to myself how the hell is the Destiny community gonna solve a puzzle of gigantic proportions????? I think I did tell someone on Twitch to maybe think about the end part of each corridor going to get a lore. No response but I tried. And yes Bastion is not my favorite weapon at all if I died trying to help Saint-14 or Orsirus!!!! I wanted the Vex Mythoclass, Gjallahorn, Fate Bringer (not the exotic version please) or the Dark Drinker. Hopefully Bungie finds a way to bring back the classics and do a major spice to the community. Thanks for the video and I had fun listening to your tale of the Corridor of Time race. 😒😒😒 My name is Byf would of made it better 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣 just jokes

  39. My opinions pretty much mirror yours…
    – The event was amazing, I was so glad to be part of it and watch it unfold even if my contribution was limited.
    – Although the weapon was secondary to me I think having it on the roadmap really did kill the feelings, you want this level of work to be surprising ALL the way through.
    – I REALLY don't like that it's being removed, but I feel that way about all the recent seasonal content. To me the "You had to be there" comes from the solving it…not it being in the game. From start to finish the event is only 2 weeks long…some people take vacations longer than that and could potentially miss everything and I think that's a real shame.

    Luckily though you've got a video like this to keep a record of it for the future.

  40. So what, people wanted…a sword? I would have been far more upset having investing the time, to get a sword. I hate swords. Honestly, I feel like it would have been the perfect opportunity to re-introduce an updated Vex Mythoclast into the game.

  41. Great vid….the stuff you guys did was amazing….but I don’t participate in these puzzles so it just feels to me like resources that could of been put into more strikes and actual story missions…bastion is a unique weapon but I was already waiting to do the upcoming quest when the puzzle came out…the reward was definitely not worth it for you guys and it’s just a bonus for me…bungie messed up in the end…a more common occurrence for them recently 😕

  42. Hi there, I finished the explore the corridors of time mission and input the 30 symbol code correctly, I then received that chronometric core, I have gone back to tower several times to speak to saint 14 but the next part of the mission never shows? Is this a bug? Or am I being dumb and need to do a specific mission before it appears?

  43. I wasn't doing any transcribing but I watched the entire thing through streams. Watching more twitch than I have ever watched before. The puzzle was amazing to watch come together seeing so many content creators and community members working together towards a goal is something I will never forget. But the reward didn't match up. If bastion had been hidden, it would have been better but even then, and amazing puzzle deserves and amazing reward. If they had just left it at the dialogue from Saint it would have been better than bastion. While its not a bad weapon it isn't amazing and falls short of even tempered expectations.

  44. Nope, I completely disagree, imagine jumpstarting the season by solving it, then spending seven days for a cool reward only to get baited by bastion. I feel bad for folks that actually get that and at the same time this should be a wake up call for Bungie to actually stop the season of insert throwaway event for ten bucks here. I rather finish, get my shit done and come by for my other guardians then be done or play a game that has a clear end or endgame loop that isn’t new weapons that aren’t worth much. Unite us my ass. It in fact splintered us

  45. It was for sure one of the worst things I've seen. Why would bungie have a sword on the grave and then have Saint say that he "marked" the grave with one of our guardians favorite weapons? If the marking on the grave looked like bastion would this quest have been this disappointing? To be honest, I don't think so. I also think that there would've been two outcomes if they had marked the grave properly:
    1. People wouldn't have put anywhere near as much work as they did to get that lame excuse for a weapon
    2. People wouldn't be nearly as upset to receive bastion as the reward

    In my eyes it seems like we were just lied to. This gun isn't flashing any sick "Corridors of Lost Time" feel and just seems like a really random reward for what these puzzle solvers were put through. It doesn't feel like there's any REAL connection between the weapon and the Corridors. I think the puzzle itself was fucking insane though. I sat around for hours watching gladd take screenshot after screenshot and I'm pissed for him. I can't even imagine how some of the people who put these crazy amount of hours into this puzzle feel. It was overall just a terrible quest, with a terrible reward, prettied up by a super complex puzzle which ended up being one of the biggest disappointments bungie has ever thrown at us.

  46. 35:06 – In my opinion everyone was disapointed mainly because the grave mades us think that the reward would be a sword and because bastion already was coming in january 28.
    The puzzle was so hard and took so many time to solve that everyone was hoping something completely new
