Title: Destiny 2 Comp grind (LFG)
Post by: MattyAu on 05:18 PM - 11/11/18
Hey fellow Ximmers,
Aussie here; have been attempting to grind Comp (mostly solo) to get the 2100 glory points for the Luna quest, currently sitting on ~1800 (was as high as 1950) but constantly coming up against sweats and matched with spuds and it's getting rather frustrating. I play with a few mates when I can, but unfortunately they're usually jumping on when I'm getting off, so I generally only get a few matches in with them over the weekend. Most of my clan are sub-par at PvP, or avoid it altogether (good group of people though).
So if anyone is on around between 730-9pm AEDT, would love a hand to hit the required glory rank.

I ended up grinding out the Luna mostly solo last season and haven't really played since. I was hoping to see a return of the original Trials mode, but alas, I have to wait longer.

I hear everyone make similar comments, but it's not an accurate one. Destiny 2 servers operate under several protocols while finding matches. Matching locally is toward the top of the list, but if you don't have a large population pool to pull from it can (and often does) actually hurt your matchmaking. After a short while of searching, the matchmaking protocol will simply skip the locally hosted matchmaking requirement so that they can match-make quicker. This often results in grabbing a match with someone in the US. The Ping times to Destiny 2 servers are much better in the U.S. as the servers are in PST. This is part (and I stress only part) of the reason why there is so much lag in the game.
