Making this require five other people with no matchmaking in a game with very few community options seems like a real bullshit move.
It certainly is, but on the other hand, there's almost certainly five other people in Lincoln force who will take on the challenge with you.
Yeah but requiring people to use 3rd party message boards or IRQ chatrooms to group up with effective strangers instead of working on an in game solution seems to me to be the biggest "we don't get it" out of date decision in Destiny. I like the game a lot but that really feels like antiquated design from years ago.
For real, I completely agree. I mean if you're gonna make an upscale Phantasy Star Online clone at least have the decency to mirror its social functions at their most basic levels.
I'm really hoping that since a ton of people are talking about this and there were lots of reviews with middling scores, the people invested in the game's long term success will work on addressing these issues (similar to Diablo 3) that they apparently ignored during development.
