Communication is a must in that. I'm fine with no matchmaking if I'm not gonna be able to hear the guy. Wasn't hard for me to find a group, just joined a clan and posted on the wall "Hey anyone wanna do the weekly heroic? The problem is these clan functions can't be done in-game at the moment. The social aspects of the game are all handled outside the game as is the story of the game. Separating game functions to Bungie. Believe me, I feel your pain. I love my Lumia , but the lack of app support from big companies is just crushing.
Why do I have to waste my own time when a working system is already in game and could just be applied to heroics?
But its not seemless and the ps4s dogshit and slow friend request system makes this so frustrating. The reasoning for it is stupid. Yes , for higher level stuff like this, coordination is pretty useful, and playing with a group of randies is gonna make it tough Or not even that. Seriously, people on here seem to understand the reasoning, so just let those people form their groups and play as intended. Just make matchmaking an option. Maybe we'd get creamed, but that's for us to discover. It should be a choice, so all parties will be satisfied.
And you could find the gem's in the pugs that you want to befriend so you could have a bunch of friends to coordinate with eventually. It's really annoying how stubborn Bungie are, they really only want people to play they way they think is best.
I hope that after all the complaints, and the fact that people made their own matchmaking system, that there's no benefit to the restrictions they put in place. Its obvious - Random strangers you assemble on a forum outside the game are more competent and invested than random stranges you assemble via an ingame matchmaking function because MAGIC. I had to do it alone. Would have been nice if I had at least someone to distract the enemies. Raids are fine for friends only, but strikes?
Haha I soloed it too.
The hard part was waiting for the lasers to be disabled. After that the rest was easy, just time consuming. I finally pulled it off when I hit level Well I would have raged if I was with randoms. I am glad I had people on mics and that were friends. Why is there no matchmaking for story missions?? It doesn't make any sense why they want to restrict your ability to play with others SO much. Same reason there's no proximity chat or chat of any kind. Bad game design by a bad project lead. Looking to do it on lvl DrkGhst87 I'm a lvl 24 Hunter.
Need me some coins!!! So I've been hearing people say you can do weekly heroics more than once a week by doing on different difficulties. I didn't know you could select difficulty for it. That's fine, they can add matchmaking to it, but I pray they only allow rewards once a week like the raid. Yea, it isn't even that difficult. If Bungie would get their heads out their asses and add voice chat with people in your group since those you are matchmade with aren't considered part of your "fireteam" and add matchmaking to easy weeky heroic strikes, a knowledgeable player could just inform the others what to do in order to achieve victory, which ends with everybody leaving happy.
Instead, they alienated a huge part of their playerbase by not allowing this and force those players not in clans or those who don't have many friends to go outside of the game in order to find players to party with. Unbelievably ridiculous in this day in age in gaming. Can someone explain to me how the voice works for matchmaking? Like say for a level 20 strike, or any strike I guess, it doesn't put you in a fireteam, why not?
So there we are doing a strike in silence. No one wants to take the time to try and invite the other two people to a fireteam, people just run off and start the strike it seems.
There should be some kind of voice this for strikes, either put the people in a fireteam, which has voice, or make some other way people can talk in strike. So, be the guy who invites everyone. That's what I did to get a team for last week's strike. I ended up meeting some new people and getting a bunch of players on my friends list for later strikes. I don't agree with the way Bungie handled this, but it's not insurmountable.
Yeah, that did surprise me quite a bit, especially since all the other advanced strikes do have matchmaking. On the other hand though my brother and I did play through this week's strike and it required a lot of teamwork and communication. Granted, it was just the 2 of us levels 23 and 21 , but with all of the modifiers turned on I know the average random strike team would go through a lot of frustration if they didn't take the extra step to both party up and make a fireteam.
And this another guy wasn't even my friend, I just went for the Strike and he was at the same place so I invited him. Not only did I get my bounty, I also grabbed the achievement for not dying in a Strike I'm sure I could have easily done it with two other randoms. I wouldn't mind optional matchmaking for everything else as well stories, patrol, etc. When firefight was first introduced in Halo 3 ODST it didn't have matchmaking and everyone complained like they should have so it was added into Halo Reach's firefight mode and it worked perfectly fine with randoms as team mates.
The game isn't broken. But there are some questionable design choices that should be reconsidered to improve the experience for everyone. There is no reason to exclude them from public matchmaking when they're made from the exact same content that does have it, with just a few modifiers for difficulty attached. The entire game up until level 20 has been Drop in Drop Out Matchmaking Or your own group, that's fine too And then it's dropped at the end-game for no reason other than to annoy those who casually play on their own schedule without a list full of active friends. You only get the coins 1 time, if you keep doing it you'll just get regular loot, the weekly nightfall is a better bet.
I've never had any issues soloing the weekly heroics. It is certainly more fun with friends, but you can do it yourself too. Because they're genuinely hard, and it'd be incredibly frustrating doing it with pubs that can just leave whenever with no penalty. I did it with a couple of my friends, while we were on skype, and we still got dunked a few times until I started making calls on where to concentrate fire and who was watching our asses with their shotgun out in case of invisible assassins while the other two people were sniping.
watch I honestly think it would have taken 4 times as long possibly a few hours if we weren't able to talk on skype while playing, and that's if we finished at all without someone leaving - ain't nobody got time for dat. Look on your left right side of your internetbrowser, its a link there in Orange called Fireteams. There you can search for people who wants to do thing, or use the site http: The reason I think its not a matchmaking is because the higher you go, say for example Heroic Lvl 28 you need more teamplay then three randoms doing stupid stuff like the regular Strikes are.
Because you need to be able to communicate for coordinated attacks and ressing each other. Yeah, that was Bungie's reasoning. But still, it's cutting out a lot of people that will buy this and get turned off by something like that. It's like kicking them in the nuts for not having friends. It's a pain in the arse since I only have 3 friends who bought an Xbox one who will play the game as much as me. Damn I really sounded like a douche with that comment. Englisherino not my native language.
This is so stupid. Why would they not do matchmaking for this? Also why am I getting hunter vanguard armor drops when I'm a warlock? I solo'd it yesterday at level Just give it a shot. Use a sniper, and a decent primary. If you can, take advantage of the modifier for arc damage. I have thunderlord and it uses arc. The thing was tearing through most of the mobs. Arc weapons straight steam roll through sepiks and the walker.
Blue is arc, orange is solar, purple is void. There will be a symbol next to the attack power. If it's white with no symbol, it's just kinetic damage. It's not something on our end. The modifier is comparable to the skulls in halo. Whenever you'd turn on a skull, it would alter gameplay. In this case, all arc damage is substantially increased, even for your weapons.
Got a guy in and we owned it. By broken I think we mean.. Haven't had any real terribads. It's a pain in the arse since I only have 3 friends who bought an Xbox one who will play the game as much as me. Its obvious - Random strangers you assemble on a forum outside the game are more competent and invested than random stranges you assemble via an ingame matchmaking function because MAGIC. I don't care where a person is from, I just want to see everybody on a certain platform. Weekly Heroics are the best.
I've played all week and still not played with friends due to time differences so i wouldn't of minded playing with strangers because I feel its slightly boring being on your own. I feel the reason that we have to make are own time for the weeklys is to challenge us I mean come on, we get exotics in exchange for strange coins, we gotta work for them some how really ain't we. Otherwise the gear would be handed on a plate: This may be a unpopular opinion but I like that the Weekly doesn't have matchmaking.
It's tough enough that I don't want randoms and if your friends aren't on that day, you still have the rest of the week to get it done.
And honestly, its the only reason to actually socialize with other players in the game. If not, everything would be matchmaking and I would have no reason to get to know any of my fellow Guardians. Because the difficulty is too high for the average person. That's why people solo it, because the difficulty is too high for an average person Reminds me of OG wow battlegrounds when a group of 10 people would party up to make a "plow", and then get stomped still.
Took an hour, but we did it. Just let us use damn matchmaking. Weekly nightfall strike matchmaking. Quickly wrong with music today and chosen for altar. Bungie has revealed that Destinys next patch will introduce matchmaking to Weekly Heroic Strikes, meaning. People are rerolling Weekly Heroic Strikes so much that weve started to. I really hope that Destiny 2 has better and more matchmaking. Looking to join in on a weekly raid team. Keep me logged in on this device Forgot your username or password? Don't have an account?

Boards Destiny why no matchmaking for weekly heroic???????? Please don't assume the tone of this message is hostile. They said they're working on it. Honestly, the only thing that not having matchmaking does is make setting up matches more tedious.
