Destiny 2's first 11 months have been chock full of many "accidents," most of them not so happy. But none have been

But the Crucible has only felt those changes the most in the past two weeks.

Destiny fan matchmaking some reason, Bungie made all Crucible modes four-vs-four at the start of Destiny 2.
This created a meta where teams played very passively, stuck together in close proximity, and attempted to team-shoot anyone who strayed from the path. It made every game more tense than it needed to be, and the pace of play was miserable.
Four-vs-four works for competitive modes like Trials of the Nine or the new Competitive playlist which comes with its own rank system and rewards, but it's a drag in Quickplay. By definition, Quickplay is the more casual playlist where players can queue up for some quick matches. On July 17, Bungie made six-vs-six the default for Quickplay in the Crucible, and the difference was night and day—Quickplay was fun again. But then in the middle of all the fun, on July

The combination of six-vs-six and no skill-based matchmaking has brought players back to the game, as evidenced by the replies to the announcement.

It won't be long now...
Even in the games where you get stomped by a far superior team, that's okay. The mode is enjoyable enough to make players want to re-queue. There will undoubtedly be some pushback from solo players who are getting destroyed by teams in every game.
A simple solution would be to add in a solo playlist for players to queue up by themselves in. Destiny 1 had that, so it's not unprecedented.
Well, here's a

Over the past few weeks, I have played more Crucible than I had in the past seven or eight months.
Let's keep this happy accident on the canvas, maybe paint some bushes around it, and call it a success. Bungie should keep skill-based matchmaking out of Destiny 2's Quickplay PvP.
