It won't be just thumb skill...
Bungie's development team recently spoke on a podcast abvout the upcoming game's multiplayer experience, which they said would be very different than Halo. Check out the highlights:
On the use of skill in the game: "Skill is very important. [But] it's not just your thumb skill, it's understanding how you are outfitting yourself, what weapons you are taking, what choices you have made in your build and then understanding how to use them properly."
On adding new movement options: "The thing that was really hard for us at first, was trying to make movement modes make sense and not feel too powerful. And not make it so that we couldn't control where the players were going and how they interact with each other…What used to work in Halo, doesn't work as well in Destiny."
