Raid this Saturday anyone?

[i]Looking for a few people to fill out the 6/6, already have 3 including myself. Must have a mic, be at least 16 and have stats similar or higher to mine. Starting around 4pm, who's in?[/i] [b]This is an example as to how to pull together a team for a raid on short notice.[/b] Edit: The truth of the matter is that Bungie is not going to integrate matchmaking with Raids. We need to make the best of a bad situation and use the tools we have at our disposal to make it as painless as possible. [b]Use the forums to your advantage. [/b] [spoiler]This is for all the people who are perplexed as to how to raid without matchmaking.[/spoiler]

  • Can you really not make it through a raid with say 3 or 2 people?

    • To be fair, your example is about as a selective as random matchmaking, so uhh I guess thanks for the bad example?

        I am content with the no matchmaking so this will not be me ranting but just stating my situation and opinion on the matter. I'm 28, work 40 hours a week, go to college 3 nights a week, and am recently engaged. My time with my 360 is very limited. I only get on once to twice a week. I never have a set time to play. My friends are all around my age and more or less in the same situation (except they have kids!). For me personally, it will be near impossible to schedule Raids with my friends or people on here. I don't really ever know what nights I'll have off from everything. I just get on when I have no homework and my fiancé and I don't have plans. For my predicament, I would not mind playing with random people. I just want to enjoy all the content on the game. For most people arguing about MM, you know you always have the option to not use it. I never really got that mentality of people arguing over how bad it would be and how bad randoms are. Well if you have friends and a clan to do it with, then why would you protest adding MM? Anyways, that topic has been beaten to death so we can leave that alone. I would like MM so I can get into a group when I have the time to do so. I'm not raging that there isn't MM., but damn it sure would be nice for a person with this much stuff going on in his life.

            [i]No thanks mate, my clan already has a team set up and I'm on it. We've got a second team forming with four open slots if you're interested. Here's a link to our clan.[/i] bungie.net/exampleclanlink

                    Anyone who plays raiding in WoW would understand why Bungie decided to do this for raiding. It is very importatnt for teamwork and communication to be an effective group. You'll probably argue that they have LFR which is matchmaking and I'd argue there are always people who take charge in the group and lead them to do the right thing. Consoles are not so fortunate to have another form of communication besides mics which not every player has. If you're not able to hear what your teammates need you to do you'll be another lone wolf with a separate goal. Even with communication you'll run into people who are "do it my way or the highway" and then you'll have yet again another lone wolf. Matchmaking would just lead to fruitless efforts and wastes of time. If you believe logging on to bungie.net and looking for a group on here is too much of an effort then you are simply lazy. If you argue these people are still randoms you'd be correct, but these people have already expressed interest and effort into doing a raid. Matchmaking randoms tend to have their own goals and will not follow a group goal (I can tell you from my ridiculous number of hours on CoD BO2 zombies). Also how often can you say you're always in a matchmade game where you win 100% of the time with randoms? I know for a fact I can't and that alone would discourage me from doing a raid with a 6 man group of them. Don't forget this is my opinion and if you disagree that's cool, but in the end I don't care what you think of my opinion.

                    • what timezone u in im 15 am i still able 2 play with u ,yes i have a mi they should alow MM as an option for the people who want to try thier chances at playing with randoms and if it fails then they can make a group on forums such as this one. not allowing ingame gamechat prevents making friends to ply raids with BAD MOVE bungie.

                      • Even though this is a point being made about matchmaking raids from what i can tell... Who wants to raid Bungie to get the game now? No player cap for the fire team. We will need pitchforks, torches, toilet paper cannons, egg throwers, food and snacks for the participants, firecrackers, 3 albino tigers, 47 and a half packs of batteries and a partially eaten pickle. Who's with me!

Good luck with the spam fest What is the difference between this and a matchmaking ? [b]none[/b] What advantage do you have using the forum ? Do you stupid noobs think that every one is XxX 420 No Scope God or something ? People who are against MM are noobs who are left behind because they are bad at the game and will hide behind a clan. You have a higher change to beat the raid ? [b]NO[/b] and it will take 30+ minute to set it up and you will fail after 10 min You have the right to remain bad at the game. You want me to join your party for raids ? Pay me , I take paypal. #SocialSkills, more like #RetardSkills

                          Ok, now, those people you obtain from the forum... Are they any different than the people that a MM service would throw at you. NO. THEY ARE STILL RANDOMS! Now.. let's look at how easy it is to do the same thing you just did... The proper way. I' don't have to log into a forum I don't have to make a thread I don't have to spam invites I don't have to add people to my friends list who will soon be deleted shortly after the event. I just hit a button and wait for the MM service to throw randoms at me. Same outcome Less hassle. And everything is done in the game, instead of using a 3rd party solution outside of the game. Logic, it works. Quit defending Bungies Laziness. I can't wait to see what the player retention is going to be on this game. Cause I already know it's going to be shit. It's probably going to surpass Titanfall as far as how quickly people dump it because of the developers stupidity and stance on what variety means. Bungie... Your job is not... to control the type of people I choose to play with. Yet, that is exactly what you have been doing since Halo 2. Let's take your idiot logic to the real world. Uh... we can't have cars, cause some people might crash Uh... lets ban alcohol, because people might become shit-faced drunk Uh... We can't have electricity, because someone might let there kids stick their fingers in the socket and electrocute themselvs. Uh.. We can't have public custom games... because players might get trolled with stupid gamesettings. Uh.. We can't have MM for Raids, because people might get trolled, or have a bad experience, or .... whatever Uh.. We can't have Proximity Chat, because someone might yell obscenities in their mic. Uh.. We can't have private matches, because....... WHO THE -blam!- KNOWS WHY? And yet, in the real world, people lives are at stake. and these things still exist. Because it's stupid, to deny others based on the actions of a few. This is a game.... And your denying people options, based on the assumption that someone "Might" have a bad experience because of it. An Experience that passes very quickly I might add. Because, even if you do ... join up with someone who quits on you.... WHO THE -blam!- CARES! You act like it's going to happen 100% of the time. Do you get in a car wreck every time you get behind the wheel? Well guess what? Every second of the day. there are probably over 100 car crashes, happening each and every second. And yet, cars still exist and are available to us. But your too -blam!-ing tied up in worrying about a few people getting trolled on an internet game. Bungie.... you know what you resemble? You figure it out.

                            • the community forum exists in part for this kind of thing to happen. Just like when teams were needed for the vidmasters in halo 3, raid teams can be filled out here with a high success rate.

How far off is Saturday @ 4PM... how long are you going to be waiting to get replies? And then.... What happens, when one of those people from the forum..... quits on you? Back to the forum...... to spam more invites. What happens, if you don't get enough people by 4PM? Back to the forum.... to spam more invites. Only this time... it's now 5PM
