When Destiny 2‘s Season of the Worthy began, one change immediately stuck out to veteran players: the stat trackers that had once displayed on certain emblems were now missing. Many were not pleased.

Bungie announced that the stat tracker system had been altered for Season 10 with the intention of allowing players more ways of displaying their achievements in game, even making trackers optional, should some players prefer a clean emblem.

This sounded like a great idea on paper, that is, before it removed the stat trackers players had equipped with pride. Now players are upset with the publisher, expressing that after seeing their stats disappear, the time and energy they dedicated towards building these stats now feels like a waste.

Among those removed was the one on the Empyrean Foundation emblem, which tracked the amount of Polarized Fractaline a player donated to the Season of Dawn event that set the stage for Season 10. Those players who had donated the most Fractaline to add to the community’s progress would not be able to display that feat come the new season.

In the patch notes for the 2.8.0 update, Bungie stated that emblem perks and auras had been removed, but they did not mention a removal of most of the stat trackers players valued. Now the publisher wants to rectify the situation.

Update 2.8.1 – Returning Stat Trackers

Bungie has expressed an understanding for players’ dismay. Now a few weeks into the Season of the Worthy, the publisher has announced that they will be releasing a new update later this month that will bring back many of the stat trackers Guardians have been missing. One of those is the tracker for the amount of Fractaline donated to the Season of the Dawn’s Empyrean Foundation. The following is a list of the career stats that will return with Update 2.8.1:

Bungie acknowledges that this is not a complete list of all the trackers that were removed with the Season of the Worthy, but they invite players to continue giving feedback with the knowledge that there is a hard cap on how many stats can be listed on emblems, and room must be left for future seasons and activities. There simply isn’t enough space for all the stat trackers of the past 2.5 years.
