Bungie are firing on all cylinders with Trials experimentation in Destiny 2 but it's good to know they are willing to roll back when a change doesn't pan out.

Destiny 2 has had a rough run with Trials of Osiris ever since the mode came to the game but it has finally started gaining some popularity after Bungie made sweeping changes to the reward system but also started other experiments.

Most of the Trials experiments were well-received but the change to matchmaking wasn't. Namely, Trials previously used matchmaking based on the passage, or card if you will, of participants in the matchmaking pool in order to determine who to pit against whom. 

The aforementioned infamous change made it so the game takes into account all the Trials matches players had under their belt, as well as their success in them. As a result, it was much harder for anyone to reach Flawless, which made players ask for a reverse en masse.

It appears to have worked as Bungie announced they would return to the card-based matchmaking as soon as November 5, 2021, when the next round of Trials is due.

The game mode will retain the Flawless pool in order to filter out those players that stand out from the rest and give the opportunity of going Flawless to a wider range of participants.
