Bungie acknowledges matchmaking glitch with Destiny 2’s Blind Well, suggests workaround
For over past couple of days, the massively popular game Destiny 2 players have been reporting issues finding other players while doing Blind Well. Within a short span, online discussion platform Reddit (1,2,3)and micro-blogging site Twitter got flooded with complaints.
Here’s how some of the users word the issue:
Yes, the instance seems to be bugged. Can follow someone who isnt in your fireteam into blind well and you don't see anyone.

@A_dmg04 @shackleshotgun anyone having issues in blind well? Doesn’t seem to allow any blueberrys to spawn into session. Tried running it for 3 hours last night and not a single person joined despite lots of players around. #destiny2

Is something wrong in the blind well? I have a couple of hours trying to find people but it’s empty all the time.

I’m trying to find people in The Blind Well, it’s been an hour and nothing. It’s fun getting new content that you can’t play so you have to play old content. pic.twitter.com/jQjtFfBVqX

Soon after, they acknowledged the matchmaking bug within the Blind Well and suggested the players a workaround unless the developers fix up whatever’s causing the issue. Here’s the workaround:
As a workaround while we work on a fix, players are advised to enter the Blind Well slowly via the right side hallway while hugging the wall.
Following is the acknowledgement that came through Bungie’s official Twitter handle:
