Bungie Considering Matchmaking Option For Destiny Raids
With a fluid game like Destiny, things can always change.
For instance, how you join Raids in the future might be different, as Bungie community manager David "DeeJ" Dague wrote on the Destiny Blog.
Right now, you need a group of friends to form a Fireteam before you can attempt a Raid. Some players say it would be more convenient if they could simply form a team online via matchmaking, and just restrict admittance to those Lv. 20 and up. This would discard the need for organizing teams and scheduling play times, but the developer isn't so keen on this idea. After all, Raids are tough, and teamwork is key. Said Dague:
"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."
However, he added that there's another side to the coin:
"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."
He said such stories surprise Bungie, and they want gamers to know they're considering Matchmaking options for the more challenging quests. "It's a start," Dague finished. What do you think? Should there be an option for high-level strangers to get together for Raids?
