The Tower as a whole felt unfinished (Though I am judging from a beta), needs more things to do there. Better social interaction equals making more friends to play raids with!
I read the news today that raids have to have 5 other people in order to start. This presents certain problems for me but it can be overcome with a certain easy fix. For me, I will only have at most 3 other friends who will have both destiny and an Xbox One. I can coordinate with these 3 people easy enough but that still leaves us 2 members short. This is unfortunate but not unresolvable. An easy fix would be to ADD A MESSAGE CHAT TO THE TOWER. With only 16 people, it will not be overwhelming to have a text box. Have us type it in with smart glass/destiny app/ or whatever so we can advertise that we are looking for members for a raid and invite them to a party. I have no problem playing with other players but Bungie needs to definitely make the process easy to invite people and group up for the large majority of people who will not immediately have 5 other friends available. That is a lot to coordinate at once, with everyone's work schedules and time zones. I will definitely want to participate in the raids for the end game content but I don't want it to be a nightmare to pair up with other people. What do you think, good idea or do you have another suggestion that would be easy to implement?
