With such an abundance of 6 stacks in IB...

... you would figure Bungie would be smart enough to match 6-stack vs 6-stack. I’m matched against 6-stacks nearly every single game. That means queue times wouldn’t be bad. Just do it Bungo Edit: I can’t wait for Freelance Iron Banner next season 😍🥰😘

    My 6 stack lost 10 matches in a row to randoms. You’re welcome, everybody.

    • you would think, by now, people with no friends, wouldn't play a team based game mode. but nope, they just come to the forums, to cry about other people having friends, and its not fair.

      • I really don't get why a team of 6 people would even want to play in Iron Banner. You go to the trouble of gathering 6 players/friends, to play this mode?? Why? This isn't a raid and it's not trials. You aren't going to get any more rewards than Mr. Solo. It's kinda pointless.

        • An alternative that really could work is: ♦ 4, 5 and 6 stacks will face a 4+ stack guaranteed. Any extra wait time is par for the course, and it stops wasting even more time for lower stack and solo. ♦ 1-3 teams face 3 or less. Yes that does mean a 4 stack could and would face 6 stacks. Also solo players could and would face 3 stack. But that's as bad as it would get and is very much improved on 6 stacks Vs solos. The alternative is to provide a freelancer version which is long overdue anyway.

          • Hey BOONGLIE!!! I'm already screening my matches and bailing in orbit if I see stacks thus -blam!-ing up queue times anyway. Why don't you just cut out the middleman and implement FAIR matchmaking? Throwing solos in to get curbstomped just reduces your player base.

                But then how would the 6 stacks feel good about themselves when they stomp people with no communication?

                • The 6 stacks don't want to play against 6 stacks either. Especially not 6 stacks of equal level.

                • Bungie: Ok nerfing shotgun range on legendaries by 70% to allow forth horseman to shine as an exotic. This will also shift the meta, but we're unaware of what will take its place. Exciting!!!

                  Still waiting for a vendor refresh... - old

                  You people really don’t know how to think, do you? If there are so many players in stacks, which is likely, then do you really think that the matchmaking system will be able to find other stacks for them to play against every single time? Or that it could always find 12 solo players to put into one game? What I really don’t understand though, is why so many players who go into iron banner solo are still complaining about going against stacks. First of all shut the -blam!- up. Second you should know by now after years of iron banner that you’ll go against stack. This type of matchmaking should be expected, but for some reason it isn’t? If it’s so much of a problem for some of you, then maybe you should try getting into a stack yourself? It’s not some really hard thing that only some people can do, there are tons of clans and places where you can lfg to get into a stack of your own. If you choose to ignore those opportunities and still go in solo, then don’t complain when you play against players who did the smart thing and found a team.

                • I'm a relatively good player and got mercy'd five or six times in a row lol; PvP is dog shit now, who wants every match to be a blowout? I don't see this season working out too well, other than the people that are fooling themselves into thinking Trials is good. PvP has never been in a worse spot and IB exposes all of the willful flaws.

                  • I usually play Banner solo so, when I see I'm against a 6 stack...I consider it "challenge accepted" and majority of the time, I beat them. Not really an issue when ANYONE can join a clan and stack up.

                    • Wow, imagine being angry that others are playing the game smarter and more efficiently than you and there’s no reason that you can’t do the same yet instead you choose to complain about it on the forum, what do you think that by some miracle bungie suddenly say oh you’re right we’re disabling fireteams in ib because the casuals are too lazy to use the same forum they complain on to instead find a fireteam. 🤦‍♂️
