Destiny Matchmaking Changes Ready for Guardian Testing

Destiny Matchmaking has been an issue for many, and it has been noticed. Today Bungie have revealed some changes that are coming to the game.

In an update posted today Bungie has revealed that a Destiny Matchmaking update they have been working on has finally gone live in Control:

“We’ve taken additional steps to increase the emphasis on connection quality. Skill ratings will be less a factor in finding you a match. Lag will be even further diminished. Enjoying a game with your friends who are more/less skilled than you are will be easier, but your opponents will be more random, so you will stand a better chance of getting your ass kicked – or vice versa. There is still some form of protection to insulate the casual players among us from the most hardcore, but those considerations will have much less impact on the technical quality of the matchup.”

This will be good news to many, but I’m sure those waiting to see an improvement will be sceptical as to the success of the update. What is important is that the players give Bungie some feedback on the success of the changes they have made:

“As always, your visceral real-time reactions to these changes in a live-fire exercise are more important than the math. Sound off and let us know how it feels. For now, your test-bed for the new settings is exclusive to Control. Get in there and control the zones. Let us know if you’d like to see these changes deployed far and wide.”

It is important to note that while they are making changes, this is still in progress. We’ll have to see just what changes this will make to the matchmaking process.
