Bungie Weekly Update - 10/29/2015 > News |gold[–]phorrum 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (5 children)i'm garbage of trials. gold[–]surfing_ninjas 0 points1 point2 points 7 months ago (0 children)i think we sometimes forget that a lot of the casual players have probably moved on to other games, so until a new dlc comes out there will be more sweaty matches than we're used to. is born of passion, and that’s what the trials of osiris will inspire. there are far longer search times and the players they show you before the match have traffic light internet connections, which makes for a shady pvp experience. but then ever since this iron banner i took it as a challenge to carry my team to victory (there were 1 or 2 other good players, the rest were mediocre). gold[–]deimos_f 1 point2 points3 points 7 months ago (0 children)at the very least they could have the same skill-based matchmaking in trials. there are far more instances of being shot "through" walls, which is what happens due to major ping/lag. gold[–]vault of assvolc_mob 2 points3 points4 points 7 months ago (2 children)not really, say there are five levels of skill. with only three strikes each trials passage, and the promise of very rare loot for hitting eight wins, there’s going to be a lot of frustrated losers out there. matchmaking takes ages, solo players like me constantly teamed up against parties, spawned in front of enemies all the time and the lag is hilariously bad. but then ever since this iron banner i took it as a challenge to carry my team to victory (there were 1 or 2 other good players, the rest were mediocre). there is never, ever a reason to match me with people anywhere in america. also, if there was a ranked and social playlist, how often would you play the ranked?'m not convinced there's any benefit to anyone under this system either. to 3's in extreme cases but there is always around 2 or 3 2kd players. at 8-0 we all get a "elderberry code" on matchmakingand oh look it used our mercy, very next game a teammate dc'd before we even loaded in so we have to 2v3 a very competent team with all flawless emblems and just couldn't beat them outnumbered.'ll say it again "destiny has always had skill based matchmaking!
Destiny: All the TTK Trials of Osiris Info You Need to Knowgold[–]incapreo3 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (4 children)i haven't been around since year 1 so this might be a dumb question but how long will trials stay around? gold[–]americanninja1 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago (14 children)every stream i've watched of the new trials is just basically, "sniping: the game mode". based matchmaking should be something optional, not something forced on you. gold[–]hobocommand3r 15 points16 points17 points 7 months ago (0 children)the current matchmaking has made many of my old crucible buddies quit the game, that and the lag. it's fine shooting into a wave of adds so long as 2/3 shots are still headshots anyway, but in trials you need all 3 going into 1 person and preferably headshots. gold[–]mccrangleberry 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (0 children)that's how the first iteration of trials was. gold[–]deepseadaddy 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (2 children)i have no reason to do trials except put on my try hard pants.)submitted 7 months ago by lightning-goatbefore the introduction of skill-based matchmaking, i had a lot of fun in the crucible, whether i won or lost, because i was always playing against a varied playerbase; some good, some bad, some terrible, and some absolutely amazing. sometimes it feels so bad i just want to run out there and dance in front of people. if the game didn't use our mercy for it's retarded error codes we could have won the next game but those 2 things in a row just completely sapped my will to play anymore trials this weekend. or thereabout when i first started in march 2015 to around 1. gold[–]sdwerd 1 point2 points3 points 7 months ago (0 children)could you explain how connection based matchmaking somehow shuns people outside of america? week trials, crucible, iron banner, is filled with more serious players and less casual ones, leading to a higher skill level on average. gold[–]deepseadaddy 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago (3 children)i agree, but the lmg from trials is the only trials gun that might be worth using. so when playing trials the top end pvp content, i'm not even rewarded with a gear that i would be using in pvp. my bigger issue is when i'm clearly shooting a guy in the face but he can just stand there and get a headshot. something that's fine on occasion, or if i seek it out, say in trials.
gold[–]facilis_san -2 points-1 points0 points 1 year ago* (4 children)out of curiosity, why is the matchmaking based on light level and not your individual or fire team's performance in too? gold[–]chips_w_salsa 0 points1 point2 points 7 months ago (0 children)the matchmaking ishumorously bad. gold[–]usadave85 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago (9 children)not a fan of the matchmaking. also, if there was a ranked and social playlist, how often would you play the ranked? gold[–]megarare 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (3 children)after two 8-1 cards i am now positive that getting to the lighthouse is completely luck based as far as matchmaking goes. i "massage" the k/d a bit by avoiding large fireteams when i could, thereby improving my chances at not getting stomped?'m glad i got the bounties done on that first run because there is no chance i'm going to waste my time going 7/8-0 just to get trounced on by guys who have already gone to the light house 3 times this week. some people seem to be complaining that sbmm makes it hard to play with friends because matchmaking finds opponents of a higher skill level as a few players in the fireteam are pretty skilled while the rest aren't. as a trials fireteam, defeat 3 opposing guardians without anyone in your fireteam dying. there are reward packages for two, five and eight wins. sorry but i can't, i only get enough time for my 3 trials runs each week, and that is with lots of other friends asking if i can help them. gold[–]solution_6 -1 points0 points1 point 1 year ago (0 children)i really want to be good enough to see the lighthouse, but i'm complete trash at trials and it's beyond frustrating. it seems like people enjoyed that sort of matchmaking compared to sbmm., how many console shooters with matchmaking have a solo queue? gold[–]haroldlott 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (1 child)when how was released along with trials of osiris, were vanilla players who did not own how allowed to play in the trials? there's nothing quite like destiny pvp and i really hope they listen to the feedback at one point and make some changes. sometimes there would be a blowout on one side or the other, and on the receiving end it would suck, but i could continue on and just enjoy the crucible because even if i went up against a really good team, i could fight a lackluster team and just relax.
