A key, ironic difference (Criticism)

The community has been clamouring for 6-9 player matchmaking in Blind Well and EP, because we think of them as 6-9 player activities. But Bungie has always talked about them in terms of being 3-player activities. Now we have matchmaking for the Forge, and it basically locks us out of doing them with groups larger than 3 players.


I thought it was funny how Bungie was patting themselves in the back during their infomercial about how Forges were them Listening™ to the community about the requests for matchmaking since the days of CoO, but these Forges aren't in Patrol spaces, and they don't have the same scope. These are essentially just Strikes that take place in a single room, or a three-wave Prison of Elders, Both things that have had matchmaking since Destiny 1.

So no, this doesn't address the issue, because we're still locked into a 3-man fireteam in a non-raid PvE activity, while Venus Wolves and Escalation Protocol have both shown how fun the events are with a larger coordinated group. THAT'S what people want.
