I would count on running this one without me. (Destiny)

I guess we'll see. I don't know what Disciple's frustrations are, but there is plenty frustrating about it. People aren't evenly leveled or skilled (guilty!). People aren't committed to staying blind. People aren't willing to make it a priority or simply don't have the bandwidth or schedule flexibility to devote the time to it. Getting people to commit to meaningful blocks of time is a significant headache (Words that drive organizers crazy at the beginning of a blind raid session: "I've only got an hour, guys.") People don't like "beating their head against the wall."

I confess that I probably have a preternatural tolerance for the latter, but I'm weird. Raiding has always been favorite activity. Blind raiding has always been an extra special form of it (most of the time). I imagined at this point in the life cycle of the game, I could find a group who felt like I did, who might be able to prioritize raiding for a few weeks, but even I have gotten burnt out on the cat herding. I don't mind some frustration inside a raid, but I'm not as interested in beating my head against the wall to organize it.

Maybe that's a sign. :(

My preferred model: Level up on Tues-Thurs, devote significant chunks of time to raid Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, maybe Monday night (but it can be a good night for a break). If level is the issue, spend a few nights the following week leveling, then dive back in with big chunks of time over the next weekend. If I could find five people who could do that, I think we'd have the raid beaten or all but beaten before the third reset, but there's been major schedule obstacles preventing that the last few times.

I'll miss not doing it. Hope it happens in some form.
