Stop Punishing Skill in PvP

Destiny 2 PvP, as addictive as it is, is deeply flawed. One of these flaws is the fact that the matchmaking algorithm places strong players with extremely weak players in matches. I have noticed this not just in Survival, but Quickplay as well. I have never understood why Bungie seems to presuppose that I can carry two players who cannot help me in any capacity and still win. In a sense, PvP matches will be won or lost on the degree to which one's teammates are useful or not. One can get 45 kills in Clash with a 5 K/D and still lose. Likewise, one can get 30 kills in Survival with a similar K/D and still lose. This shouldn't be happening. Bungie should be aiming to matchmake teammates based on similar skill-levels so that games in upper-tier brackets of Survival are more fair and so games of Quickplay are more fun. This is NOT to endorse skill-based matchmaking, but rather, to endorse a more balanced model for finding teammates. The current system is a nonsense system that persecutes the hardcore under a false presumption that it is feasible (or even fun) to double, triple, quadruple or even quintuple carry. For the sake of the sanity of those with thumbs, it ought to change.

  • Its Destiny pvp...nobody takes it seriously. Least of all Bungie. Use your "skill" in a real competitive game.

    • I keep using this analogy even though I hate analogies, but Crucible is like constantly forcing high school and college football players to play with the NFL. There should be some kind of skill based matching. With that said, the minute good players keep getting matched in all sweat lobbies they will complain that they can't get an easy game. Just go ask some streamers...

      Know how many times we lose bc the top player in thelobby crushed us? It works out both ways. I wish most of the people that post would stop and consider every angle. Instead you lost a few PVP games and now blame the algorithm. Want to guess what your win percentage is?? Bc it immediately dispels your post.
