Matchmaking needs to evolve, you listening Bungie?
Bungie's No Matchmaking Stance for Destiny? | ResetEra
About two weeks ago, The Messenger came up as a reward for Trials of Osiris. A highly sought-after Pulse Rifle, The Messenger could roll with the unique Desperado perk, increasing its rate of fire compared to other Pulse Rifles. Getting that perk was all a matter of luck, of course. Still, many Guardians who would otherwise never have engaged in the pinnacle PvP game mode tried their hand at rolling a Messenger just for the chance of getting one with Desperado. Normally, getting a Messenger would require achieving three victories in Trials of Osiris--a difficult task even for the 50th-percentile of Destiny 2 PvPers. This bounty means that even if you never win a match, after completing enough matches you were guaranteed at least one Messenger.

That's twice the amount of people playing Strikes, Nightfall, Raids, or Gambit. For comparison, if we look back at July of , the PVP population was k, less than half of what it is today. So while there was an increase, it should also be considered that this is a new season where everybody is trying to hit the new max power level. Especially now that skill-based matchmaking has been turned off. For most events in Destiny 2, I like to play solo.
The Destiny experience as it is today would be hardly recognizable to someone that only played the game at launch. While it's still the same core experience, Bungie has endlessly updated the game based on feedback from fans, tweaking things here and there, and adding often requested features to try to make Destiny the best it can be. Unfortunately, while Bungie does a pretty good job at listening to their fans for the most part, there is one issue that they seemingly refuse to budge on, and that is matchmaking. At first, fans demanded that matchmaking be added to Destiny's raids, as they are almost impossible to complete solo with some exceptions , and quite frankly, some people simply do not want to take the extra effort to have to seek out others to play with personally.
