Things I feel can be improved. -Fire Teams: 3 seems a bit low. I understand that they probably didn't in a hat and pick out the number of players on a FT, but I feel that 1-6 would be appropriate for the game. Both story/explore and crucible. To go along,l with that, joining a FT should be easier/quicker. If I am standing next to a guy and (assuming he has his privacy settings set to public) join his FT, I shouldn't be sent to orbit just to wait 2 minutes to be placed somewhere near him in the map. I was right next to him ffs. -Decision Times: Meaning the time it takes to go into orbit or do anything with a fireteam. I understand they don't want someone to push a button on accident which launches them into orbit or removes them from matchmaking in the crucible, but do I really need to hold a button for what feels like 5-10 seconds? 2-3 seconds seems a bit excessive, but surely would be an improvement. -Vaults: Add a sort function the vault. Since it is shared between your Guardians, please add a way to sort things so that cleaning it out is easier. Sort by level, guardian type (issue with gear, but not weapons), etc. -Item Management: In my search to come across the best level 8 gear I can get for my Guardian, I have come across a lot (A LOT) of lesser gear. They should add a way to sell or share that gear. I know I can dismantle the item, but when I see it at a vendor in the tower for 250 glimmer and dismantle it for 12, I feel a bit cheated. Not a big issue, but at least use Vaseline... I'd also like the option to share items, at least with friends. If I just found a great gun, but want my friend to have better gear than he currently has, I can gift my old gun(s) to him. Remember Bungie, sharing is caring. Voice: The more I think of this, the more it bugs me. The game is set up to be social...but you can't easily voice chat with people unless you join in a FT with them. I know I have read on the forums suggestions for proximity chat. Especially with the ability to enter a new area and meet/play with new people, voice chat gives you a great ability to use teamwork or verbally signal you've been "consumed by the darkness" and need a pick me up. I wouldn't make this an area wide thing, just close proximity (maybe link everyone who engages in a public events too). The proximity should help avoid people spamming the mics with their music or obnoxious behavior. Another way to overcome that is having a mute button optional... Just tough to realize the only way you can be social with random people in a social game is to point/wave/dance. Those often don't convey quite the message I would like to send to someone who just helped me out. These are just the thoughts that spring to mind quickly. I should take notes while playing for a more thurough suggestion for Bungie...not like they will read this anyway though. Hope they do, hopefully others comment on this and agree or disagree with my suggestions.
Edited by Skyknight11: 7/22/2014 2:12:08 PMI agree with almost everything you said. I'm not liking everyone asking for trade/sharing loot system. I know maybe your friend could use it but that would bring in people running other places to get them better gear. Me personally I would rather earn it myself than get it as a gift from my friends. One of the best parts of gear dropping is seeing what you have earned not what you friend just gave you.
Fair enough. A trading system may also encourage people to pay others for doing the grinding or heavy lifting to acquire items for them. I definitely don't agree with that kind of a system. I can definitely live without the gifting system.
