Hello (Destiny)

by Anna Komnene, Monday, September 12, 2022, 17:48 (20 days ago)

Um, hi.

So, I'm posting this with some hesitation. Mainly, that it's not going to go over well. And by not well, I mean, well... not enough people will want to do this.

To start, I was a lapsed Destiny player from about 2017 until November 2021 (before that, it was early 2015 to 2017). In those four years -- and truth be told, those two years during the original Destiny -- I lost touch with many of the people I played Destiny with, people who even worked for Bungie. Dan Miller, Luke Timmins, Lars Bakken, Urk, Dawn (who's still Q&A at Bungie, I think). Dan doesn't work at Bungie anymore, Luke doesn't log into the account I'm friends with, and to make a long story short, the only person who I see regularly online anymore is Dawn, but when I reached out to her, she didn't respond. I'm not sure why, but I don't want to risk bothering her.

Anyway. I know this forum isn't... well, active as much as it once was. And that's a shame. Looking back at the first page of posts, you can see Marty, Dan, DeeJ, Urk, and a whole bunch of others posting here.

That's okay, I guess. People move on. I really wish I could go back to those days where you had this smaller place to post about video games, a place where you can interact with the people who make it, and there was a generally positive atmosphere about it all. But I guess that got all eaten up by bigger social media websites, right?

But I'm hoping there's still enough people around who are willing to do a kindness. See, I've been wanting to do some raids (or hell, even dungeons), but I honestly don't know where else to turn. I don't know enough people who play this game.

Can you guys help me out? Can we get some sort of team going? I originally did Vault of Glass back when it came out, but other than that, I haven't done any raid since the release of Destiny 2.

Claude, I'd love to play with you especially! If it helps, I used be Dax over at NeoGAF before that place turned out, well... not so great.

Hi Anna.

There's a fireteam builder event planner on the right of the forum. You can make and schedule an event with a description, and people can sign up for it to help with coordination. This place might be smaller than it was, but I'm pretty sure there are people who would do stuff with you here.

Thanks, Cody! I'll keep this mind. <3

Heh. I haven't been to GAF since... 2009? Maybe later than that. A while, anyway.

We have a group that raids regularly (on Wednesdays), and often someone can't make it; if you're available on Wednesdays at 5pm Pacific, we can try and fit you in.

That's infrequent, though, and the number of people looking to fill that extra slot is relatively high... but I play with another group that pretty much raids all the time. I'm pretty sure we could get you through regularly. Send me a FR (Louis Wu) and I'll hook you up. :)

Claude, that sounds great! I probably should've mentioned that I'm on PS5. So I think I'd have to add you using your Bungie name (and the number) if you're on Xbox or PC. What's your Bungie name if that's the case? Or is Louis Wu your PSN handle?

Bungie name is Louis Wu#5110. PSN handle is Pfhor Play.

Ha! That's old-school Bungie. I'll add you on PSN. Lemme know if I need to add you as a Bungie friend. My PSN tag is alittlelilypad. Hopefully we get to play together soon; just let me know when's a good time for your group!!! And I can definitely play this Wednesday. Thanks so much for the kindness!!!

Claude, I'd love to play with you especially! If it helps, I used be Dax over at NeoGAF before that place turned out, well... not so great.

So, I'm in the same place when it comes to Raids, so I can't help much there. In fact, if you find a good group (and I have the time to give), take me with ya! Any who, extending an olive branch just to say if you need help with something I'm (for now) on often enough that I can usually jump on for whatever in the evening.

Also, no need to be timid! The only biter who still posts here is Robot Chicken, and we make sure he gets his necessary nano-feed daily. It's all good! ;D

Welcome! -or- Welcome back! :)

Welcome! You’ll probably end up taking my place some Wednesday but I hope not, because I’d like to be part of the welcoming committee. Kermit7 on Xbox. Kermit-DBO on PS. I like to raid mainly, but I’m open to other stuff. Join the clan. You can sometimes find people in real time using the app.

If you do hear from Dawn, tell her Kermit says hi.

I know you! I met you about ten years ago at Firewurst across the street from where I work (now gone, like so many other places). I was the creepy guy in the booth, occasionally saying "Hello, fellow kids!" while you and ncsuDuncan were trying to have a young people conversation talking about young people things. You didn't make go away, which I appreciated.

I... do not remember that. At all. Huh. Funny the things we remember and the things we don't. Well, now that you mention it, maybe I sort of remember? Firewurst rings a bell.

Oh Duncan. I haven't spoken to him in so long! Hope he's doing good.

Can't wait to play with you!!!

I'm definitely up to Raid and usually am just a sub. But honestly there may be interest for another group to get going. I'd say toss a FTB up at a good time for you and see who bites. I'm generally available after 8pm EST most nights.

Speed and I talked about trying to start another regular group months ago, but never really made any progress (or actual effort, I suppose).

I’d be interested in at least a semi-regular group, and I’m usually down for jumping in if there’s an impromptu raid happening.

Hello to cheapLEY and kidtsunami!

Thanks so much for responding. I will keep you both in mind about the FTB. I'm going to see if Claude can help, or if I can get into a Wednesday Raid. If not, I'll definitely consider the FTB next!!!

Also, feel free to add me: I'm alittlelilypad on PSN, and my Bungie friend code is alittlelilypad#5306.

The name Dax01 certainly rings a dust-covered bell from back in the day. I shot you a DBO Clan invite for Destiny, so keep an eye out for that.
