I hope Bungie is aware that if they add matchmaking to Escalation Protocol, myself and many others will more than likely play it over and over again until our eyes bleed. by Fosteroid in DestinyTheGame

/u/Cozmo23 Keep in mind that EP is at it's best when there are 9 underleveled players. This mix of giant scale chaos and difficulty has been the pinnacle of Destiny for me.

Sick of having Bungie respond to your threads? Try this one simple trick! by [deleted] in DestinyTheGame

Hey, I deleted this because it turns out they have replied, BUT, the point is that 9 man EP is insane fun.

9 man Protocol is one of the best group experiences I'hv had in gaming. It needs to be experienced, by all guardians, sooner than later. by kid0m4n in DestinyTheGame

inb4 Escalation Protocol is left behind and the next iteration still doesn't include 9 man matchmaking because Bungie didn't get the memo that we like this large group content.

spoiler, Bungie hasn't responded to a single 9 man EP thread.

Wow, some great points there. Nothing like the feeling of walking away from a hearty conversation, filled with new and exciting ideas. I, for one, wholeheartedly appreciate the time, effort, and thought you put into that four word comment. You can almost HEAR those words coming to life.

Great to meet you, friend, and so long!

I know EXACTLY what you mean.

Thanks for explaining your side of things, and of course I could have been more tactful than I was.

I appreciate you dude...

Huh, remember the massive potential we thought the infinite forest has shortly after the launch of CoO? And how infinite forest was then promptly forgotten?

Yeah , welcome to Escalation Protocol, surely things will be different this time /s

What if.... Bare with me here... But what if..... Just imagine..... Like, this crazy idea I had.... Like if.... If you just SPAWNED WITH SNIPER AMMO... In some sort of special weapon slot.... And you acquired more by picking it up in these REALLY WEIRD GREEN BINS around the map.

Wouldn't that just be SO WEIRD!?!?!

I mean, yeah, the loot chase and rank systems make the game have a longer lasting appeal... But that's not what we're talking about in this thread.... Lol?

So, it's a tricky situation, and obviously I could be wrong, but here's why I think lowered TTK will lessen the effectiveness and frequency of team shot.

D1.

In D1, if you were getting stomped by a 4 stack, you could still get that flank, pop a few shots off and nab a kill before they could react. If ttk is low enough, any solo player with the right position and timing can disrupt an enemy stack of players. Having access to OHK melee and grenades was a big thing too. Striker Titan charge followed by a flash and grenade / 2 tap last word? That's a double kill before anyone else on that team can respond.

Now, I'm not asking for the return of OHK options, but the point is the faster you can get a kill, the more effective a good flank from a solo player can be. And the less time a team can react to said flank.

I think people would complain less about matchmaking (less, not entirely) if solo players had a chance in this meta. In D2, teamshot and close grouping reins supreme.

LOWER. THE. TTK.

And you'll find the game is more enjoyable for all, including solo players.

If only Bungie had a working system to go off of. One that was generally accepted as a "good idea" and had 3 years of testing behind it...

If only.

This is not the Bungie that made Halo, the one that knew what made games fun. This company is "Bungie" only in name.

Competitive is one of the worst solo experiences I’ve had in gaming. It needs to change, and soon. by RiseRugby in DestinyTheGame

[–]MrDysprosium 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It wouldn't be so bad if teamshot meta wasn't so powerful...

Lower TTK, game becomes more fun for the solo player.

Bring back specials, it gets even better.

Skilled solo players can not enjoy this game. Team shotting, power ammo control players are the ones that win.

Bring back D1. Buff primaries

Just more examples of Bungie watering down the experience.

Just... What the fuck are they thinking.... What.

And the teamshot is still there, for the few moments in each game (those very few and rare moments) where power/super isn't in play, team shot still reins supreme. The only difference is that the team with the better teamshot gets the heavy, and then the snowball effect takes over and... Yeah, not fun.

It might not bother you, but you can at least rationalize how the way it is currently handled could be improved further, right?
