Some welcomed changes are coming to Destiny beginning this week. Bungie stated in its weekly update that it would start making changes in an effort to "reduce lag." Some of these changes include player-versus-player matchmaking that uses connection quality into account when setting everything up.
The new matchmaking feature will implemented Jan. 27 at 10 a.m. PT. This comes 24 hours after the Iron Banner event went live. This will give Bungie "two sets of data to compare and scrutinize," which is "all part of the plan," according to community manager David Dague.
The matchmaking changes will emphasizes the quality of the connection, but Bungie assures players that "there will still be some consideration given to matching you with worthy adversaries."
