Raids in Destiny don’t have matchmaking, and this has caused a lot of frustration for the player base because it is difficult to find 6 players to play together with.
They have asked the developer Bungie to add matchmaking and here’s what Bungie thinks about it. They were vague about it and it seems they are studying the raid data to decide the best course of action. Matchmaking would make many players’ lives easier though.
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.
If players know how to play the raid, then it doesn’t matter if they are strangers. With proper communication one can clear the raid very easily on normal, so Bungie should look into this.
