Crucible is Legit Hell for Solo Players..

Crucible almost forces you to queue up as a team and if you do not, you will most likely go against a 4 man clan, while your team is most likely a team of solo players and beating a GOOD 4 man team with ok communication, is almost impossible. They will mostly likely stay together, which forces the solo players into a 4v1 and 4v2 situations which are almost unwinnable. What makes it worse thats there is no game mode on crucible, that is 6v6 like destiny 1. Adding 6v6 will be really helpful for solo players because, you will not have to deal with a whole clan vs solo players 90% of the time, most of the time your go against groups of twos or groups of threes and your team will most likely not be a team full of solo players as well. Crucible is actually extremely fun if you play as a team, but if you play solo it can feel like hell. Also why is there no option in these game to choose your game type, I miss being able to just play control and avoid the other game modes.

  • Preface: I'm not the best crucible player, no 1%er here, but I'm better than average (1.65kd/ through 60 matches mostly solo in D2.) During the D2 beta I quickly found that I cannot run into engagements where I'm outnumbered and rely on a crispy stick and a three tap from a HC. The time to kill (ttk) is just too long and I would generally get turned on and get one kill out of two... not helping my kd and certainly not helping my team. What I have found to work is trying to back up my teammates. You have to read the flow of the game and try and keep track of where your team is and where the enemy is and is going to be. Without communication it can be difficult but you can gain insight based on experience and patterns (this honestly just develops from playing way too much :)) The thing that I have found to work best is to follow a teammate and look for his engagements and simply back him up from another angle that the enemy doesn't expect. If you run around solo trying to execute your own plan which no one else is following all you're going to accomplish is getting team shot and at best a trade. This can be difficult for me to do as when I play in a team I'm generally the shot caller. Every group needs someone to rally the objective and keep everyone positive and that's the role I try to fill in team play (the positiveness is a work in progress (:). Keep in mind that your teammates are not always going to intuitively do what you think is the next right move. They're not always going to want to take B. If I'm not getting help capturing objectives and continually get wrecked trying to do so then I just go with the flow and stay by my team and back them up. I may not always win that way but at least I'm not forming bad enagagement habits like I would be running to my death over and over in outnumbered situations. When these games come up for me I have to change my mindset from one of trying to win the game to one of trying to personally improve my gameplay. Hope some of that makes a little sense and helps you in some way! See you out there guardian! Jvdged
