^Please take this link to the poll for this forum^ During the Destiny Beta I usually had more than 2 friends that want to play with me at a given moment. This made things awkward when we wanted to do something like a mission as the maximum fireteam number was 3. This is somewhat understandable as the levels appear to be built for 3 players and if more were playing the mission at the same time it would make the mission too easy. However, it was a surprise to see that the Explore mode also has a 3 player fireteam limit despite there being no missions, besides the much smaller beacon missions, that needed to have an appropriate amount in a fireteam. I was hoping that this could be changed to a larger number which is clearly possible as Crucible fireteams could have up to 6 players in the Beta. Seeing as the Explore mode doesn't need to have a balanced amount of players doing the same thing as there are no grander scaled missions so it would probably be an improvement to have more players in a fireteam for Explore mode as it would give people with more than 2 friends an opportunity to meet up to do something together in-game.
