-Desired custom game options here-

I will give a quick summary here real quick, so basically I'm making this topic a related topic to where I confirmed private matches and clan matches "aren't really a thing". So, I posted the proof that private matches aren't in the game and I got alot of feedback. [url=http://www.bungie.net/en/Forum/Post/67844613/0/0]With a majority definitely in support of private matches with this poll by Palindrome to back up that claim[/url], I'll just go ahead and share with Bungie what options we want in custom games. The options presented will be for a regular slayer match and not for objective. I'm not going to both going into objective game modes because Bungie will assume those options. I know an intensive custom games isn't already planned for Destiny, so I know this won't be ready at launch probably. As a *temporary* fix I would request that multiplayer game modes allow the full amount of players be able to search with. That means if the game mode is a 6 person FFA, allow 6 people in a lobby to "search" and play by themselves, not actually requiring searching for players. For control, a 12 person playlist, allow 12 people to be in a lobby and start up a matchmaking control game. This could be abused for boosting, but I think it should be used anyways as a temporary solution until Custom Games are in Destiny. Alot of you don't know but Rumble pit has this feature already and it's not used for boosting. I can't see anyone actually boosting anyways because Destiny has no ranking system.

  • You aren't giving more customization, you are taking it away. If I spend 50+ hours in PvE to get guns, armor, stats for my character those are all rendered useless with only three of your so called awesome options. [b]Weapons? Only 4 specified ones.[/b] There goes all the time I spent to get a good gun and renders all the guns useless. [b]Supers?[/b] Off.[/b] While, why did I even bother with a class? We are now all re-skinned spartans. [b]Player Traits/Movement? Off.[/b] There goes all the custom work I put into what I believe gave my character an edge. Yay! Now we have Halo and I only altered 3 of your so called options that add so much to this game. Good call N E S S I. I'll say it again, Private Matches are well and good cause then clans and MLG (which is garbage but should still be allowed to play) can play in those to compete and see who is best without stripping what Destiny is. Custom Options are bad because then people will just make it so that all the PvE work you do is useless because they wanted a "fair" playing field (in their opinion). All the people play Dark Souls and Dark Souls II because they spend 100s of hours in PvE to craft the best PvP character. With your custom options in these games, it would strip away all the PvE because every match someone is invited to would be sword/shield, no magic, base armor. Destiny isn't as extensive with character customization but it's the same concept.

  • I don't really care about custom pvp games at all, the is a very simple solution to stop it being abused, no xp. You play custom games you recieve no rewards. Job done. On a side note, I don't believe that Destiny will ever include custom or private servers, and that poll is probably only a small percentage of the pre ordered player base. What bungie need to work on is simply (although the actually coding of such is probably lengthy) have the crucible matchmaker match groups wirh groups. If your a full 6 man team going in have it match you with a 6 man team of equal level and within the average gear bracket. Then you wouldn't meed private or custom games.

      • You know Ness. Your an idiot. Why would you want something so dumb? It will only lenghten the games replay value. Make clan vs clan viable. And let us do countless other fun, time consuming things. All with no experience if course. Why put something dumb like that in the game? And for all the idiots crying about private matches, I ask one question. Why? Whats the harm? This clearly isnt halo. It isnt cod. Customs are fun. Period. Thats all there is to it. Without customs you can never play with more than 5 friends. Ever. Period. Add them. Theres no harm to it. If you dont support it. Come up with a valid arguement. Something the community will take seriously. Not " itll attract 1v1 players lulz" Gt- Ghunshot. Most people who are complaining suck anyway at Destiny.

          I understand the want for this, but did you at least re-read your thread before posting this? You're literally trying to change Destiny into Halo.

          • So basically you want it to be literally JUST like Halo? That's greeeeat. Let's give people more of a reason to say it. Private Matches also don't automatically mean completely custom games. And realistically you will be seeing Private Matches sometime after launch, so be happy. Your posts just scream "gimme gimme! I wanna change this game so much before it's even out!" to me. All I see is want, want, want and if someone disagrees with you, you're quick to attack them by calling them 'idiots' and I do believe I saw an insult calling someone autistic. Bravo. You can certainly dish out opinions left and right but cannot take criticism at all.

              [quote]I'll just go ahead and share with Bungie what options we want in custom games.[/quote] Who the hell are you to speak for me? I don't remember us all sitting in a pow wow and saying N E S S I shall here by be anointed as chairman of Private Lobby options. People throw this 'we' word around like it's going to give face to your argument. All it does is say, 'I think I'm speaking for everyone but really I just want my opinion to be passed off as a fact.' And even then it's not a fact, it's just a faked majority opinion. Also, I'd just like to mention you were the little bitch who posted a similar topic and cried pretty hard at the people that opposed your ideas. EDIT: Would also like to mention that if you want all that shit you listed. Go PLAY Halo 5. This is Destiny, you are just turning it into Destiny: Halo Evolved. I would be in support of Private Matches if they didn't count towards anything and IF they were played the same as MM games. This gives you the option of having Clan Matches but won't let you butcher everything that makes Destiny different from other FPS games.

                    So just like halo custom matches? Like we expected out if Bungie? Guess they don't want us to play with friends unless it's only 2 other people or against ransoms.

                    • Private Matches =/= Custom Options. The poll has no significance. I don't see how the poll you posted shows any proof that people want custom options. It clearly asks "should destiny have private lobbies?" And answers are yes, no, idc. Where does this poll mention all the shit you listed. You are assuming that everyone who voted for private lobbies also want custom options. From what I've seen, people want private lobbies for clan games and 1v1s, training, etc. I'm not saying there is no one that wants custom options just that you basically piggy backed a poll that may or may not be relevant to your topic just to try and gain reputability.

If anything the pole could be used as a argument against private matches, by pointing out how much 1300+ votes for yes dwarves the 4 million+ players in the beta. Not saying you shouldn´t campaign for it, just saying you be even´t more credible if you [b]didn´t[/b] use the poll argument.
