Tweet on Twitter It seems that regardless of player feedback, Bungie really wants you to play Destiny the way they want you to play. I feel like any time there’s something players figure out or do in the game, that was originally unintended by Bungie, they patch it to their liking. And then, if there’s something players really want, they simply ignore it. I know this is a blanket statement, and it’s probably a little exaggerated as past patches have done good for the game, but I honestly believe players are getting fed up with some of the changes Bungie implements. I know I am at least. The latest move from Bungie, which will arrive in update 1. According to this week’s post , update 1. That means no more soloing for you. No more playing with just a friend. Now you’ll be at the mercy of Destiny’s matchmaking algorithm.
Destiny has no matchmaking…?
Trophy Guide Strike Strike Missions are cooperative missions that can be done by players. Upon selecting the Strike Mission, the game will attempt to find either an ongoing session with an available player slot where you can join or find other players within your level range to start the mission together. In case there’s no other players who can join you, the game will start with you as the solo player.
Don’t worry though; random players can still join your session, as long as you have space in your party. The Nexus Strike Missions are supposed to be challenging, which requires the cooperation and teamwork of everyone in the Fireteam. The first few areas will be manageable alone; but the real problem starts when you have to face the boss.
Weekly Heroic Strike not matchmaking Like it says in the title. I’ve launched the weekly several times in order to take whack at it and I just get dumped solo onto a map with low lvls mostly.

Destiny 2 Update 1.2.1 Adds New Catalyst And Faction Rally, Patch Notes Released

The Matchmaking could look for players of similar level to match you with to make sure you’re not going in with anyone too low to survive, as well as balance the group by diversifying the classes, bringing in 2 of each class for raids (2 titan, 2 warlock, 2 hunter) and one of each for the Nightfall and Heroic strikes.
If you’ve ever finished Destiny 2’s Exodus Crash strike, you’ve fought him, and probably hated him. Strikes in Destiny 2 are standalone mini-adventures designed to be taken on by three players. Each one usually lasts around 30 minutes or so provided nothing goes wrong and has you move through a few challenges until you get to a big room with a big boss. The boss of the Exodus Crash strike is a big Fallen Vandal named Thaviks, The Depraved, and he is probably the most hated foe in the game. In fact, Exodus Crash is easily fans’ most loathed strike, and has been more or less since the game launched.
There are forum threads and reddit posts from last September, when Destiny 2 first came out, talking about how annoying the strike is, and that annoyance has only increased over time. The early tipping point was probably when the strike had its turn as the modified, more difficult Nightfall strike, when it was so difficult it required players to use out-of-bounds “cheese” strategies to win.
Parts of the strike are fine. People aren’t mad about the story, which has you fighting off a group of scavenging Fallen from the Exodus Black, a crashed ship that belongs to the friendly A. It’s not the challenges leading up to the boss room, which have you collecting pulses out in the Nessus patrol zone annoying but easy , fighting off waves of Fallen while you wait for Ghost to hack something as standard a Destiny encounter as exists , and taking down a Fallen spider tank except maybe that.
No, the vast bulk of complaints about Exodus Crash are to do with the fight against Thaviks. The Exodus Crash boss room, annotated.

However, a new update from the developer indicates that big changes are coming in the next update, changes that will affect how players group up. Bungie’s community manager Deej says the team has been working hard to be more transparent when it comes to letting players know what tweaks and updates are being prioritised. His latest update details a major update with the next “Destiny” patch, introducing matchmaking for Weekly Heroic strikes.
Information on the new patch posted on the Bungie blog also details a fix for a long-standing heavy ammo bug, but the big news is that matchmaking for Weekly Heroic strikes will be mandatory at all levels. Chung, explains the team’s decision to make the change. The overwhelming community response was such that many players didn’t have the numbers on their friends list to experience the activity on a weekly basis,” she said. Chung went on to answer a few questions, providing further clarity on the new functionality.
First, players will no longer be able to solo Weekly Heroics, a change which applies to all levels of the strike. There is also no matchmaking on raids, which could prove problematic and controversial, but the team is reportedly working hard to figure out a way to make this more manageable.
No Matchmaking For Weekly Heroic Strike
A piece of activated equipment, called the bubble shield, is shown. Halo 3 is a shooter game where players primarily experience gameplay from a first-person perspective. Much of the gameplay takes place on foot, but also includes segments focused on vehicular combat. The balance of weapons and objects in the game was adjusted to better adhere to the “Golden Triangle of Halo”: Players may dual-wield some weapons, forgoing the use of grenades and melee attacks in favor of the combined firepower of two weapons.

Page 2 With the imminent reveal of Destiny 2: Forsaken, it feels like we might finally be on the cusp of a huge and crucially, positive watershed moment. Between a community summit at the studio, a well-received, empowering sandbox update, and the generally rather good Warmind expansion, Destiny 2 has lately felt like a game starting to regain its identity. And now Bungie is ready to unveil Year Two, just ahead of previewing its large-scale, September, Forsaken expansion as one of the biggest E3 games.
Forsaken, absolutely has to be. Here, we’re covering every aspect of the game, from the shooting to the story. But starting with the most important, core stuff The fundamental Destiny 2 experience 1. Bungie has now stated that it wants to rework the game to serve players who want to make it their hobby — ie. And that needs to happen. I often compare playing Destiny to being a hobbyist car tuner, and there are good reasons so many Destiny players love Monster Hunter.
The kind of deep, gratifying Destiny that keeps players around for years rather than weeks is as much a theoretical pursuit as a practical one. Until recently, much of Destiny 2 has shied away from this.
‘Destiny 2’ Update 1.20 (1.2.1) Adds Armor Rework, Crucible Labs – Patch Notes
Each person might see a rose with a different shade of red, but the fact that we can all agree on is beauty — that is a miracle. That’s what most people seem to do and there’s always someone who will respond. Those three items require more teamwork than a standard tiger strike or pub crucible match so I can see why the choice was made to exclude matchmaking from them. Also, once you do it once with those people you can usually add them to your friends list and do it again with them in future weeks.
Wow, that sucks, on top of not being able to do Raids now I can’t do Weekly Heroic’s because of no matchmaking. I noticed last night that it would throw me into a solo Heroic which are impossible by myself but I just thought the matchmaking was messed up.
As there’s always two sides to every situation, there’s no shortage of high level players grumbling about the inability to solo the Weekly Heroic Strike post-patch.
