Bungie Considering Adding Matchmaking To Destiny’s Vault Of Glass Raid
A weekly update from Destiny developers Bungie has revealed that the studio is considering adding matchmaking to their end-game raids. Destiny’s raids are the most challenging parts of the hit game, requiring six players level 26 or above to team up for a lengthy test of endurance. As it stands the game’s only raid so far, Vault of Glass, requires six players who know each other — rather than matching up strangers through the matchmaking system used in other areas of the game.

One of the highlights of Destiny , multiplayer-wise, are the challenging Raids. Players work together, sometimes for hours, to complete high level raids and reap in the potential loot they carry. Well, Bungie has heard a ton of feedback over the course of these last couple of weeks and is discussing the addition of matchmaking within these Raids.
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, ” writes DeeJ on the Bungie blog , “There have been other stories, of course. 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. Through internal discussions, the developer is trying to ascertain the value of adding matchmaking of some form to parts of the games more notorious challenges, particularly the Raids.
And that’s about it, just discussing the possibility of this feature being added:. In the recipe of a Bungie game, Matchmaking has always contributed the ingredient of a team built to play one match of competitive multiplayer. Although Bungie iterates that this might prove to be “really tricky”, they have seen that there is wonderful potential to include a matchmaking addition for players entering Raids, like the infamous Vault of Glass.
Player feedback seems to be working and the developer does want to make improvements wherever possible, adding more value to the original game without the DLC’s holding it up. However, for the time being, matchmaking is still not supported and Bungie insists that fireteams are to be made up of online friends only.
Keep sounding off about it, and maybe someday some matchmade Fireteam mates will hear you, too. Source: Bungie. Tags playstation 3 xbox bungie 3 player online co-op destiny playstation 4 xbox one matchmaking raids vault of glass.

I should have listened. Bungie was right. When Bungie said there would be no matchmaking in Vault of Glass there was a mini-uproar. Chiming in with the rest of the chorus was easy. Bungie should allow matchmaking in the raid, I said, as failing to do so would wall off the best content from users incapable of assembling a sufficiently powerful team. While this was correct, Bungie maintained that the raid itself was too complex to be attempted with randoms. Phooey, I said. The first involves all members of the fireteam standing in specific places on a map and clearing adds while shooting oracles, which take the form of spawning balls of light.
If the team misses an oracle, everyone is forced to run to the centre of the level before a boss enacts a ritual and ends the raid. There are seven oracles to monitor, and they appear in seven waves. Without someone orchestrating and everyone in a vocal party, completion would be excruciating. Not impossible, but certainly horrible. The encounter begins with the players standing near a portal.
Three of the fireteam, selected randomly, are then teleported away to either Venus or Mars to retrieve a relic.

Destiny considering adding matchmaking for Raids
Across Destiny and Destiny 2, Bungie has delivered 10 raids, each with their own quirks, themes, and memorable moments. The short platforming stint gets interesting when you introduce the optional objective of making sure a ball makes it all the way to end, but is too short and lacks the visual flair to stand as a good breather from the action. The last two fights are surprisingly nuanced, however, with a number of different phases and sequences which teams must work through in order to succeed.
The layering of multiple elements works well and still makes for some rewarding moments, but the familiarity of its encounters as well as its loot being recolored versions of the Eater of Worlds sets make it the raid we ran the least. Kicking things off with a platforming segment is a bold move, but the focus on making sure everyone is in the right spot at the right time instead of having each player conquer the challenge on their own is a step forward.
Shooting things in Destiny is fun in and of itself, but expectations for how that shooting is contextualized are a bit higher.
