There is no place in this game for mid to low skill/experience players who don't have a full fireteam of friends to play with. Bungie is saying, in no uncertain terms: "Be a hardcore Destiny player with years of experience or play another game. Casuals or people who would like to develop as a Destiny player are not welcome here." New players or those who want to get better can't learn the ropes in Quickplay; it's far more sweaty than even comp. The way I see it, Bungie had a choice: make a game that everyone can play through fair matchmaking and risk actually challenging the top players, or let them keep stomping new players so they can feel good about themselves. I think we all know what they chose.
Dead on. The power of a lot of the gear makes crucible all but inhospitable to new/low skill players. I have suggested something like a "Straight Crucible" where there are no buffs, weapon effects, mods, or supers. It could just be base attributes like impact, fire rate, stability etc. Then at least some new players could hold their own. It's sad how spot in you were in your assessment. People don't have a right to a power fantasy when they're playing PvP.
AND...."negative" review on steam
comp is sweaty. quick play is super easy and I can use green guns and still do well. only people who say comp is less sweaty are people who never even gotten to legend.
Since Bungie has a shitty hybrid P2P connection (in lieu of actual dedicated servers), CBMM is practically a requirement compared to SBMM. Until Bungie is willing to shell out some dough for dedicated servers, the matchmaking in this game will be perpetually awful.
