An interesting week swirls around 'Destiny.'
Believe it or not, it has been a very interesting week for 'Destiny.' Just as Bungie patched in some much-requested changes to the game's engram system and seemed to relent on players' desires for a more straight forward loot system, rumors began to swirl around involving a major shift in the story presentation and breadth during development and details regarding expansion content. In response, Bungie has issued a weekly update that stresses a going forward perspective.
From the weekly update, "The drama of the rumor mill is a symptom of a greater issue: We all want Destiny to be better... I’d rather spend the precious time we have together coming up with ideas for how the game can better support us as a community. I’d rather we look toward the next update. There may come a time when we take a probing look back at the challenges we faced during the development of Destiny, but those won’t be my stories to tell."
And when it coems to looking forward, the first issue up is Raid matchmaking.
"You don’t need to sell us too hard on the value of Matchmaking at Bungie. It’s something we helped to pioneer. Yet, we understand its limitations... 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."
While that doesn't indicate a timeline for adding matchmaking for the Raid, it does sound like the fan feedback is making progress, much as it did with the Cryptarch and with matchmaking voice chat.
