Destiny’s Update 1.1.1 Sparks Controversy in the Masses
Bungie has been working on Update 1.1.1 for Destiny and is continuing to keep us in the loop in terms of what we can expect, but not everyone is as excited as Bungie is.
Bungie has some matchmaking changes it has planned for its next big update, and the masses aren't too happy about them. For those of you not in the loop, Bungie has been talking about its 1.1.1 update for a while now as one of the biggest patches Destiny will ever receive (outside of expansion DLC). It's winding down on the update's development and is finally almost ready to go live. Some changes that will be in the update are, "fixing a heavy ammo bug, applying some newfound balance to the weapon sandbox, and enhancing the view into your ever-growing reputation." Well, it seems with the changes announced today Bungie is also growing a reputation, and it's not a good one.
Bungie is changing the Weekly Heroic Strike so that if you're not in a party of three, you will be automatically placed into matchmaking to fill the empty spots in your group. Instead of having matchmaking be an option, Bungie will be forcing it onto people, which means no more soloing or duoing the Weekly Heroic Strike. While Nightfall and Raids won't be affected, the upper echelon of players are getting upset at the lack of options given instead of having mandatory changes.
