A simple answer to all this is, matchmaking. There is no reason these raids have no matchmaking.

  • I know for a fact that it wouldn’t work. Why, may you ask? Simply take a look at Reckoning. And that’s a 4-player activity. Add two more randoms to the mix, increase the difficulty by a million and you’ve got a recipe for a disastrous raid. I don’t even know how this new 6-player activity is gonna go when it’s already difficult to get 4 players working together.

  • [quote]A simple answer to all this is, matchmaking. There is no reason these raids have no matchmaking.[/quote] I honestly hope they implement this. I can’t wait for the retort posts about trolls,afkers, potato players, no mics, And obnoxious kids that think every roll they get is a “god roll” (with perks like shank burn) that you’re stuck with and can’t remove from the FT! Good Luck with that dumpster fire.

  • Theres a very good reason. If you cant put a team together you sure as shite cant raid efficiently.

  • Matchmaking for raids with be hilarious. People going in without mics, or to purely troll. It would be one hot mess.

  • You know I only want them to add match making for raids just it can crash and burn, then maybe just maybe idiots like you will finally shut up about it.

  • When WoW added this to their game they stagnated in subs and have been declining ever since and with WoW classic coming out and the game is really high in popularity on twitch the numbers speak for themselves. Also matchmaking would be a shitshow for raids anyway people without the right gear not high enough light to do specific cheeses not having the right class composition the list goes on and on just find and lfg discord for your platform it allows you to be more specific as to want you want/need in a group.

  • The problem with matchmaking for raids is that it's a sound idea [i]in theory[/i] but the reality is that it's a very bad idea. For Raids, if you haven't completed the raid you're going into, you need someone who's not only willing to teach but is actually capable of properly explaining the mechanics for each section. It sounds simple, but explaining something in a way that everyone understands is vastly different from explaining it in a way that only makes sense to you. Success is heavily dependent on communication and one person not communicating can ruin the whole thing.

  • Y'all want matchmaking in raids but in reckoning where the bare minimum of teamwork is required, its "too hard" without a premade fireteam?

  • It depends on how you look at it. There’s technically no reason not to have matchmaking. It’s not like it’d be impossible to add matchmaking. However, there are very strong arguments against matchmaking, which are likely the reasons why we don’t have it.

  • I think people should have to complete every encounter once to unlock matchmaking for that raid. Boom. Easy fix.

  • I’ve seen plenty of people with completions who would be a nightmare to have stuck on your team by matchmaking.

  • If it’s optional, then that’s on you. With one completion at least they’re familiar with what’s going on.

  • I would certainly beg to differ on that. I’ve seen clueless people with at least one completion.

  • Well, they'll have more experience than a person with no completions; and that's a fact.

  • Yes, but that experience can vary from a useful amount to an absolutely useless amount.

  • That's what LFG is for. Not matchmaking.

  • I know that. That’s why even with matchmaking, I’d still use LFG. That being said, I can still express my views that matchmaking would be an awful idea.

  • And a lot of people prefer matchmaking. Not only your preference matters.

  • People prefer matchmaking for things that it already exists for. People cannot say for certain that they prefer something that doesn’t exist, like raid matchmaking is Destiny 2. Also, not once have I said that only my preference matters.

  • We'll only know if matchmaking happens. I get a tone that you're against what other people would like to see in the game, so that generally means "I'm right, you're wrong." Just let it happen and if it doesn't work then it will go away like guided games did. It will be effortless for Bungie to add matchmaking. They've been doing it since 2004.

  • I’m not against what other people would like to see, just some of it. That includes things like raid matchmaking, and removing enhancement cores from infusion. If you’re looking for a reason for that, it’s not the whole “I’m right, you’re wrong” idea, it’s probably because I take advantage of the adequate LFG features we already have, and haven’t had issues with cores. Nothing more, nothing less.

  • Your mentality is "I don't have a problem with it, so nobody has a problem with it." Give the game room to grow because it's far from perfect for a lot of players. Good things stay and bad things go. Just look at trials. Matchmaking isn't going to get rid of LFG BTW. Just look at comp and reckoning.
