I'm... not sure I understand the logic. (Destiny)

I get the concept of card-based matchmaking; it makes sense for a mode like Trials. I also get the idea that the most efficient balancing will often put the best player on a team with the two worst players, and make that person feel like he's carrying the whole time... and that Bungie is trying to avoid that, when possible.

I thought the point was the Bungie is not trying to avoid or create that situation - there should be no team balancing in Trials at all. In which case, this was the (bad) luck of the draw.

I'd have to go back and read their recent comments on that - I must have misunderstood.

It feels like more than bad luck - it's the third Trials week in a row where this has happened to me on the game that WOULD be the 7th win (and while it's happened in other places in the series, that's the only consistent place). I mean, 3 data points is STILL bad luck, not a real pattern... but it feels bad, man. (The previous two weeks I tried again, and was successful the second time around. This time, I gave up.)
