Let's catch up with some older news - there's some good stuff floating around the interwebs! Luke Smith posted a note on NeoGAF that is worth reading, if you're one of the people who've wondered about how Raids in Destiny will work - and wondered why Bungie has made it clear that you will need to put your own team together for a Raid. (At least at this stage, we've been told that the Raid will not be accessible via Matchmaking.)
That barrier to entry - the requirement that you get a group of people together and venture into something that is going to challenge your ability to work together (first) and your thumbs (second) - is a barrier I was willing to erect to preserve the activity goals.
I appreciate a developer who is willing to make decisions that don't cater to the bottom line, solely - it's refreshing! (Raid icon comes from OverwatchGraphics - definitely explore.)
