You know, what? I used to be one of those people that said "I wish there was matchmaking for raids". But then I thought about it and decided, no, that's got to be the worst idea in the history of anything.
Let's say you're either on your own, or maybe you have a friend or two, to raid with. You get matchmade with the rest needed to make a 6 person team. Now, imagine if only one or two of these people have mics and imagine if the others don't want to listen to what anything anyone else has to say and wants to show off how good they are. You can't communicate with some of them, the others won't listen and the other guy is the worst player on earth.
Sound like fun? NO. I would much rather raid with 2, 3, 4, 5 people i know or even people i've found on the forums. I dont want to be matched with idiot 10 year old kids that have no respect for anyone else and won't work as a team.
I'm not saying everyone out there is like that. In fact, I've made some of my best friends online with random people, but they were found on the forums.
FFS Bungie, DONT ADD MATCHMAKING TO THE RAID. I swear, if you do, I won't even bother playing the game any more. I bet you wouldn't care about little old me saying I wont play the damn game if you do it, but I can almost guarantee you that a LOT of people feel the same way. Adding matchmaking is your one way ticket to failsville.
If you agree, please, PLEASE, up vote and make this known.
