Bungie Is Looking Into Matchmaking For Destiny Raids


Raids are easily the biggest challenge in Destiny. So much so that Bungie has been adamant that you need well-oiled team to beat them, so they don’t allow random matchmaking at the moment, But it may be something they are reconsidering.

"You don’t need to sell us too hard on the value of Matchmaking at Bungie,. Itt’s something we helped to pioneer.Yet, we understand its limitations. In the recipe of a Bungie game, Matchmaking has always contributed the ingredient of a team built to play one match of competitive multiplayer. As you’ve probably witnessed in recent weeks (or years), many of those fresh allies have failed to go the distance together.The Raid was designed for solid teams of killers who have made a commitment to solve a dense and explosive riddle. Most of the raiding parties who have emerged victorious from the Vault of Glass have sworn that one weak link would have doomed their chain. There have been other stories, of course. We’ve heard tell of Guardians who met each other just outside the door that leads into that vault. Strange tales have reached our ears – tales of total strangers who have banded together to see the Raid all the way through to a triumphant finale.Those stories surprise us, but the players of our games always have. The best I can do to answer your question is to let you know that you’ve been heard. We’re having conversations about how Matchmaking might support the more challenging activities in Destiny. It’s a start. Keep sounding off about it, and maybe someday some matchmade Fireteam mates will hear you, too."

I hoe someday is not too far off into the future, because frankly most of us who have jobs and families find it pretty hard to get 5 other people on our friends list to have hours free to participate in these raids. Look for me to discuss the raids and more in my Destiny column, which will be a monthly thing and be up sometime in the next week or so.
