Bungie continues to try and improve on Destiny’s Crucible matchmaking.
How was your experience with Destiny‘s Iron Banner this week, especially after the change in matchmaking settings? Bungie hopes you had a fun time because it’s still tweaking settings.
On Bungie.net, community manager DeeJ stated that, “Your results may vary (gotta love the Internet), but we’re hearing and seeing some good things: Lag is on the decline. Match-ups are still close enough to provide the level of challenge demanded by the Iron Lords. Matchmaking time between games is less than a minute, on average. By many accounts, we’ve taken a step in the right direction, but there is always more room for improvement.
“The dev team at Bungie has deployed another new set of matchmaking settings. For the time being, they are exclusive to Iron Banner. Once again, our goals are to further reduce lag.”
It was noted that you’ll see a wider variety of skill between games even if matchmaking takes slightly longer. We’ll see how it ultimately pans out so stay tuned for more information.
