Crucible update – 6v6 is Back!

The Crucible team at Bungie has been hard at work over the last few months, digesting player feedback and tuning the experience. Normally we’d have a Crucible representative jump in to give some commentary on goals, but they’re currently all hands on deck working on the future of the Crucible. Here’s a quick Patch Notes preview for what you can expect to become available when Update 1.2.3 is released on July 17, 2018:
Crucible Playlist Update
  • Quickplay
    • Increasing player configuration to 6v6 and updating the playlist description
    • Removing Supremacy from the pool of available game modes
    • Control
      • Updating Control win score to 150
      • Control Zones will initially be neutral
    • Clash
      • Updating Clash win score to 100
  • Competitive
      • Bomb Fuse timer in Countdown lowered from 40 seconds to 35 seconds

Crucible Ranks Update
  • Players will be able to earn Valor rank from additional playlists:
    • Competitive
    • Crucible Labs
    • Iron Banner
    • Trials of The Nine
  • Joining a game in progress will protect your Valor Win Streak for that game
    • If you lose: No penalties incurred to your Valor Win Streak
    • If you win: Valor Win Streak increases
  • Players will be matched using their Glory rank
    • This means your opponents will be of similar rank to you
    • The higher you climb, the tougher the opponent
  • Glory Loss Streaks will be re-tuned to be less punishing over time
    • Consecutive losses will decrease the Rank Points lost instead of increasing
    • Streaks will still cap out at 5
  • All Rank Streaks will no longer reset once they hit their cap
