Timing details for the Raid, some general stuff about Cipher Decoders, and a farewell from an old friend.

Thanks for leading the Community Team so well over the years DeeJ. Can't wait to see what's next for ya.

From the hilarious Community Theater to the way you were there to encourage and sum up the points made by sometimes nervous devs during the live streams, to having to calm an entire community of gamers when things sometimes went wrong, to helping lose the DBO vs DBO Bungie Bounty match so I could get one of those very nearly exclusive Xbox 360 emblems, you were awesome. It'll be sad to see you go, but you certainly left an impression! :)

Xbox Blind Raid?

by cheapLEY @, Thursday, October 15, 2020, 20:27 (10 days ago) @ breitzen

Who’s interested? Seems like we have plenty of prep time, and the 21st lines up with my Saturday off, so i I’ll definitely be looking to jump in.

I'm seriously interested. Normally I have a lot of family events this time of year, but I'm not quite sure which ones will actually happen. Hopefully I can work around the ones that do.

I'm willing to do some herding/scheduling.

I'd already planned on it, but my main preference is availability for long sessions. The worst thing is being in a blind raid for an hour and someone saying "I gotta run, guys."

That’s why I want to do it launch weekend. Normally I’d prefer the extra time to prepare, but this seems like long enough, and it aligns with a weekend I already don’t work. I can play literally all weekend. If we waited, it would be two weeks for my next Saturday off, and that seems like the surest way to end up not having a blind team, in my experience. We could always do weeknights, but that also leads to short and inconsistent play sessions, which always ends up frustrating for me.

And me. I'd like to devote as much time as possible on the weekend. I could easily see us hitting a wall with the contest restrictions the first 24 hours, but ideally we'd finish Sunday night or have a mechanics figured out for the final boss Sunday night (which to me is "finishing" blind).

That’s basically where I’m at. I’m willing to go beyond Sunday and even after reset, but probably not for long. Like I said last time, I think Last Wish broke me off wanting to tackle a blind raid over multiple weeks. I’m more of the mind to give it a real good shot and then just call it anymore. I consider seeing the final encounter a win anymore. Although that’s kind of screwed me—I still haven’t actually ever finished Last Wish or Garden.

We need to fix that!

Interested? Of course. But it's WAAAAAAAAY too early to say if I'll be willing or able, if not only for the life altering importance and reasons that exist outside of this game in November. We are a month and change away from the 21st of November. For this year of way too many events, I don't want to say I'll be able only to than find myself fighting off the hungry undead when COVID-19 mutates to bring em back on Halloween or whatever. LOL... goodness.

I am glad we have more than a week to bump up our light. It is a 170 point increase we'll be aiming to achieve after all, so I guess we would need all the help we can get.

I only ask a small amount of understanding when I need ~5 min breaks every couple hours to help take my [disabled] sons to the bathroom, but otherwise I have already cleared it with the wife that I will be committing to spending every other spare minute of that weekend able to raid.

Also, as others have already said, I don't like the idea of it drawing out over a couple weeks, with a couple hours here and there. I want to commit to playing as much as possible that weekend (and maybe into the next week, if needed) to get it figured out, and hopefully even done - and then free to not have to continue averting my eyes and ears from any raid content.

I’d be*, and Sammy might as well (she’s been wanting to play with some of the old crew again, and she had fun backseat gaming on our blind Garden run). But there’d be a number of caveats, with time being a big issue, as you’ve mentioned. I normally have plenty of patience for bashing our heads against the wall, but Sammy doesn’t after the first couple of hours in a single encounter. Ideally if she joins, we’d have to have a real solid team put together..

I dunno. Slap one or both of us down as tentative (weekends are great!), but yeh. Depending on several factors, I’d have to see who all I can do it with, if I’m able to at all.

Sammy’s realization for opening the door in the first encounter is a GOAT raid moment for me still. Oh be quiet Sammy, there’s no way that’s how this works!

If she doesn't want to grind all the way up to the Contest cap, guess I'll have to use one of the reddit guides for maximum efficiency that turns the game into a checklist of chores that I have to do in order to have a chance to enjoy the fun parts of the game...

So normal Destiny as Bungie wants it to be, I guess.
