Guardians of Destiny 2, brace yourselves. The ‘One Moment Please’ message has returned with the arrival of the latest expansion, Destiny 2: Lightfall. This error message has been the bane of many players’ existence, often taking hours to finally gain access to the game. While frustrating and inconvenient, this occurrence is not uncommon with new expansions in online games.
The Cause of the Error Message
According to PC Invasion, the ‘One Moment Please’ message appears due to an overload of players trying to log into the game at the same time. By slowing down the influx of players, the game can maintain its stability and prevent a system crash. Unfortunately, this means that players will have to wait it out until they finally get access to Destiny 2.
Other MMOs have also experienced similar error messages with new expansion releases, such as Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. While there is no immediate fix, the best course of action is to wait it out. Players should avoid constantly logging in and out of the game, as this will only prolong the wait time and possibly exacerbate the issue.
Dealing with the Frustration
Being stopped by the ‘One Moment Please’ screen is understandably frustrating, especially when friends are waiting to play together. However, players should try to remain patient and wait until access is granted. As with any online game, technical issues are bound to happen, and it’s up to the developers to address and fix the problem.
In the meantime, players should be aware of other minor issues in Destiny 2. Bungie has reported that some Exotic weapons and armor are not functioning correctly, which is being addressed and should be resolved soon. Staying up to date with any updates and patches can help avoid any other issues while waiting for access to the game.
So Guardians, sit tight, and remember that the ‘One Moment Please’ message will pass eventually. In the meantime, seek comfort in the fact that it is a small setback compared to the adventures that await in Destiny 2: Lightfall.
