The themed map has over 200 points that are of interest in the volcanic and tropical environments. Players want to learn about the new features, but the event is making it difficult.
“Anyone else experiencing constant crashes in their game?” I’m [on] HTML5, and since the recent playlist upgrades with the ‘Secrets of the Pacific” event, I can’t play 2 minutes of a game without having a crash,” complained one member of the Vanguardsubreddit. Here is the Original Xbox One. Added another. I haven’t completed any game since Secrets of the Pacific was made without a crash.
Blizzard also confirmed that it is currently under a DDOS attack, affecting the functionality of Battle.net, its client. “We are currently experiencing DDoS attacks, which could cause disconnections and high latency for some players. The company stated that they are working diligently to address this problem.
Sledgehammer Games is still investigating the causes of these crashes on all platforms and has taken the event from circulation. You won’t lose your progress if you don’t complete all six challenges.
