Right now, the only way to tackle Destiny’s Raids is to have a group of high-levelled friends who want to get shot in the face repeatedly in the perpetual quest for better gear. That’s right; there’s no matchmaking for Raids – which means it’s impossible to jump in to a raid with a group of strangers for a few arduous hours of shooting. That could change.

Maybe.

According to Bungie’s David Dague, there may be some changes coming that include matchmaking for Raids.

“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.”

Destiny is still quite a lot of fun, and I know very many of you are still playing the thing, trying to farm for ascendant shards, but the game certainly has its issues. They’re encapsulated perfectly in this “Honest” trailer for the game, from the chaps at Smosh. It is, as its title suggest, honest – and 100% accurate.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
