With the latest stream, the developers intended to address all ongoing issues in-game. And also give insights to the fans of all the upcoming changes.

While talking about the mixed reactions received from the fans for Tenrai, the head of design for 343 said, “I didn’t do a good enough job of reviewing a bunch of the assets that went out”.

As a part of the much-needed changes, Jeff Hook confirmed the massive changes fans can expect to see with coming events. For instance, the event pass will now include more content (shoulders, coatings, gears, etc.) in place of challenge swaps and XP boosts.

Moreover, sites limited to the store and event passes will only be available in the Fracture: Tenrai event.

As a part of Fracture: Tenrai, the developers intended to bring forth a brand-new line of armor inspired by samurai. The free 30-tier event rewarded players with different gears of the Yoroi Legendary Armor on each level, requiring players to complete all the requirements to earn the samurai look.

However, to the community’s surprise, the gears designed for the event pass were available in the shop for players to purchase. Needless to say, this infuriated the fans, with many even stating, “Boycott the shop” during the stream.
