I hope I'm proven wrong cause I'm looking forward to answering the calls for help and seeing how it works....but I've just got a very low opinion on humanity in general and this system specifically.

not pointless, I want the experience of the raid and the story. Without matchmaking I would never get it, my pool of friends that play this is small and most of the time only 2 of us are on at a time if that

Video available if desired but it doesn't add more info than already shared.

O thought they were implementing a system where you had to be granted shepherd xp anyway? It would make more sense instead of request matchmaking. You could request a shepherd especially on side missions
