Destiny 2 Freelance Trials is much better than Competitive Trials

According to Aztecross, the biggest detractors of Freelance Trials are the mode’s regular players. Many fans believe that this mode can split the player base of Trials of Osiris. They have used the example of how no one plays competitive because of the split player base. However, Aztecross believes that the mode’s decline primarily involves the lack of loot for players to earn. That’s not the case with Trials of Osiris and Freelance Trials so far, as it offers some decent rewards.

Level playing field for everyone in Trials of Osiris

Plus, he also mentioned how Freelance Trials provide a new type of PvP gameplay. Regular Trials of Osiris involve fireteams with a lot of synergy and teamwork between the three Guardians. Players can change their playstyle based on their teammate’s play. This puts them at a serious advantage over Solo players who are at the mercy of their newfound squad. But with Freelance Trials, everyone’s on a level playing field, which suits the solo community of Destiny 2.

The community has some concerns with the decision from Bungie to split the Trials player base. However, there are a lot of players who play solo in Destiny 2, or don’t have a squad to go flawless all the time. For that crowd, Freelance Trials make perfect sense. As Aztecross stated, it’s not perfect, but that’s mainly due to how Trials of Osiris is at the moment. Plus, it offers a level playing field for everyone, and that’s what players have wanted for a long time. Hence why, Guardians might be looking at the future of the mode in Freelance Trials.
