Spike McDougall commented on Bungie responds to disappointment of Destiny's The Iron Banner:
If people are seriously crying about not being able to absolutely CRUSH low level in PVP IRON BANNER is stupid! I went in with a bunch of high level (26-28) friend and I was a 20. I thought I would get crushed but I still managed to have fun because SKILL is involved! I think it balanced pretty well from my point of view. You cant just expect to have a game dev hand you PVP wins just cuz you have high gear. You gotta earn it sucka!
