Destiny 2’s new season brings endless night and a classic raid
I should have listened. Bungie was right.
When Bungie said there would be no matchmaking in Vault of Glass there was a mini-uproar. Chiming in with the rest of the chorus was easy.
Bungie should allow matchmaking in the raid, I said, as failing to do so would wall off the best content from users incapable of assembling a sufficiently powerful team. While this was correct, Bungie maintained that the raid itself was too complex to be attempted with randoms.
Phooey, I said. The first involves all members of the fireteam standing in specific places on a map and clearing adds while shooting oracles, which take the form of spawning balls of light.
Steam linking is here!
If the team misses an oracle, everyone is forced to run to the centre of the level before a boss enacts a ritual and ends the raid. There are seven oracles to monitor, and they appear in seven waves.
Without someone orchestrating and everyone in a vocal party, completion would be excruciating. Not impossible, but certainly horrible. The encounter begins with the players standing near a portal.
Three of the fireteam, selected randomly, are then teleported away to either Venus or Mars to retrieve a relic. Whoever picks it up is unable to use guns.

The other two members of the away team must then shoot seven oracles, within ten seconds of them spawning, while moving in a specific direction at a certain speed while they go gradually blind. The relic-holder is unable to cleanse the away team if it drifts apart and the raid will fail. Once the relic is back in the room, the fireteam then jumps to a platform in the middle of the area, and the relic-holder puts up a protective bubble to allow direct attack on the Atheon.
Rocket strikes are needed to bring Crota to his knees before he can be hit with a sword to deplete his health, and the team needs to stop firing on him after he initially succumbs.

At points team members need to fire into the sky together. The raid wipes if insufficient damage goes up into the air. With randoms and no voice? No chance.
Yes, we know Crota can be soloed on hard. There would be little fun. This is a long-winded way of saying I was wrong.
Buy our t-shirts, yeah
Imagine a group of randoms taking on the Atheon with no voice chat? No, neither can we.
