Knock it off. The raids are not that challenging and would totally function with matchmaking. Hell, people already use matchmaking for raids they've just had to use a third party app to do it.
Knock what off? No need to talk to me like that.
Except with traditional matchmaking there is no way to require use of mic. I cannot imagine doing Aksis with a group not on mic. Even basic stuff like making sure there is one empowered member on each side and they're in position before dropping his shields would be extremely difficult.
Edit: Even Voksis phase 2 with making sure everyone gets into a cleansing room before the Siva saturation goes off. Or getting people on the platforms in the Oryx fight in the correct order with the correct timing. The raid encounters are puzzles that are DESIGNED around communication.
They may not be hard but they definitely require communication.
It's not about playing with people you don't know - I've done heaps of that in Destiny, it's about the fact that with automated matchmaking the chances of people using mic is so slim, and the chances of everyone in a group of 6 all using it is next to none.
