Late last night, because I was bored, I decided to try playing Destiny again. I’m having some fun with it because between the last time I played and now, they’ve added a number of new things to do, more periodic spawns to keep you on your toes and other interesting tidbits.
In addition, I was surfing the Destiny subreddit and found out about this cool site: The 100. You enter some information about yourself like age, play style (casual vs. serious), time zone and the like. It will match you up with 99 other folks of similar characteristics that you can coordinate with through the site … it’s like insta-guild … just add water! I signed up for the site, got assigned to a group (Alpha Company 76), signed up for a raid and raided that same night! And it was fun … none of the PUG crap that one might normally deal with. I think other games should really look at how that site is designed and mimic it for guild creation and matchmaking.
