WHY? No private matches?

No competitive destiny multiplayer. The only thing there will be is bare bones matchmaking in an almost complete TDM filled system? Machinimas, Playing with other clans, Messing around and playing silly games like michael meyers or just playing against freinds in general. All gone. A staple of gaming. Not just the FPS genre. And after all of the time that bungie had praised their community for making machinimas, for making crazy games, for doing funny and entertaining stuff with their game. They end up just removing that option entirely for no reason. Oh well. Figured i'd share my thoughts. Here comes the storm of people telling me to go back to Call of Duty for wanting private matches. Edit: Just noticed there are already threads on this... Edit: Edit: Video evidence: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4tqNJCilKBA Skip to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Deej- Community manager and bungie employee confirms.

    There's hope it will be added down the line, but those that want it have to make themselves heard: [quote]TSA: But there won’t the kind of custom modes which you had in Halo games? Jonty: Um, I think we’ve been asked quite a bit about whether or not we’re going to do private games and things like that. It’s certainly an active discussion, but it’s really about how we wanted to make sure for launch that we had the best gameplay that we could offer for the core competitive multiplayer activity. I think what you’ll find is that over time we’re going to see some things arrive, and[b] I think players are going to inform our prioritisation of what features we update[/b]. We’re going to build on Destiny. 9/9 isn’t just launch and forget. We did a bunch of this with Hoppers [temporary playlists], I guess, in previous Halo games, but we’re on a much greater scale of potential change, if we choose to do it.[/quote]

  • Me and one of my halo friends I know in real life got hyped about destiny like a year ago. After we watched some of the alpha gameplay, we were convinced that this game would be in the MLG/competitive game scene, so we practiced shooting and communication by playing halo for months. We wanted to go to local tournaments, try to have a high ranking in the leaderboards, and practice in private matches in Destiny and what not. But now that he's heard there will be no private matches, and probably no ranking/leaderboard, he says he's not going to be focusing his time on Destiny when it comes out.

  • Welcome to the club, people asked why is there no MM in Raids, why is there no in game chat, why is there no in game clan support. Now, why is there no private match making. Perfectly legitimate questions and things that should be included. Yet, some people act like you walked up and punched their sainted mother for bringing it up.

    • Poor you, you need to remember that bungie will only focus on the mass market first and foremost not the minority competitive players you are an after thought deal with it.

        • So...... you don't think machinimas can't be done on Explore mode, which is a much wider landscape, and variety of location, than the Halo MP maps? You think machinimas can't be done with characters of much more visual variety than just color variants of two/three people? Only thing you have is the loss of MP variety, but guess what: It's a fresh IP from a group who've been forced to drone out Halo titles until they bought their freedom, and now they have a large amount of new people. Give them a game and DLC to make changes. If they wound up making the perfect game right here, how could you improve the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th titles, or add DLC? Those games would be boring according to you and this forum if the first game was perfect.

            • The amount of pub stomping in this game is going to be ridiculous. Glad I got a good crew, so all the people who think private matches aren't necessary can get crushed. We'll see how fun they think it is then.

                    Because the PvP system has rewards my guess is it is to stop people abusing the system.

                  • Can we just round up all these "private matches" threads and put them in internment camps? Too soon? I'll leave now.

                      • They didnt have private servers at the beginning of bf4. But they added that later once the game had been fully released maybe that is what they are doing somthing similar?

                        • It's not possible with Destiny, because all servers are privately hosted. So it would be impossible to make private hosted matches.

                                      • So what DOES Destiny have? TDM matchmaking, with no ranking system, against random opponents and easy COOP missions that you can only play with people on your friends list. This game will be dead a month after launch...

But it has been stated that Bungie intends to make Destiny more accommodating for the competitive player post-launch. We already know this will include more Crucible modes and playlists. I assume private matches will also follow.[/quote]
