One of the most annoying things in Destiny 2 PvP should be mitigated with Season 19.

Getting into a PvP match in Destiny 2  is always risky if you are expecting a fair challenge due to matchmaking being weak as it is but on top of that you have the premade teams that usually mop the floor with people that got randomly thrown together.

This issue should be addressed partially in Season 19 when Bungie introduces Fireteam-Based Matchmaking (FBMM) which should theoretically match premade teams against other premades.

As the devs noted, this will generally be the case but if the team waits too long in the queue, the matchmaking will loosen up and allow them to play against five premades and one solo.

If the pool still proves to be too small to get a match, then four premades with a duo or two solos will become eligible and so on.

Since this type of matchmaking will be introduced to quickplay, it will be somewhat loose in the beginning but the team will keep iterating until they reach the sweet spot or at least its vicinity.

Once enough testing is done in quickplay, other playlists will get FBMM which should be a boon for Iron Banner especially. Premade teams were the biggest turnoff for the regular players for a very long time and that barrier should be removed in the coming months.
