Since we can't have matchmaking for raids, I think we should be able to just do them by ourselves. I mean, what if we have no friends to raid with? You could just cut some time aside from developing new content to go back and rebuild the raid we have and split time in future so that raids are leveled be played solo or with a 6 man fire team. I mean, think about it, if we want to just raid for like, 30 minutes, we can do it grab some cool loot then just quit without letting teammates or even randoms (if we had MM, that is) down! Bungie, you made a great game here, but you forgot to pander to your super casual player base who want access to the most time and strategically intensive game mode without devoting the time or the strategy required to play it as it is now.
Im completely for MM and being able to enter a raid with whatever party size we want but the content is designed from the ground up to be done by 6 people if you do it with just 4 then its a damn achievement on your part but the content shouldnt be nerfed to allow you to do it easily with 4 [quote]if we want to just raid for like, 30 minutes[/quote] this is like saying I want to only play 3mins of CTF your missing the point of the content you should expect a raid to last 3hrs like you expect a CTF game to last 10mins (i think never really timed it) but we shouldnt have to waste 20mins looking for partners if we dont mind who joins us just to fill up numbers or feel like taking it on as a group of 4 good friends
