Community Focus- Andy Edition
Our focus this week comes from across the pond. He is part of the German community and is an avid fan of the stories we tell and enjoys sharing the deep lore with his followers.
Please meet Andy Edition.
Welcome to our Community Focus! Tell us about you and your role in the Destiny Community.
Andy: Hello Bungie, thank you for inviting me to do a Community Focus. It is an honor to be here. I am an avid Warlock who loves the Destiny universe—especially the lore. I have met many players from different countries through the game, many of whom I’ve grown very fond of. At the end of 2016, I decided to upload videos about the stories of Destiny on YouTube. My small community grew large quickly, and I reached almost 33,000 subscribers in a short time. It's an incredibly nice feeling when people tell you they would like to see more videos and can’t get enough. This motivates me enormously to continue telling the German community about the exciting story in the Destiny universe.
Where can we find you online?
What made you decide to start making content on Destiny’s lore?
Andy: When you play Destiny 2, you often meet new people, and I always like to ask Guardians why they chose a particular faction. But not many seemed to know the background story of the factions and were absolutely thrilled when I told them about it. That's how the idea arose to create a YouTube channel about the Destiny 2 lore.
What would you say sets you apart from other content creators?
Andy: I think the whole thing is special, because there is no other channel in Germany that is dedicated to the story part of Destiny 2. My goal is to bring the German Destiny 2 Community closer to Destiny's captivating story. Furthermore, my videos are a place where I can be myself, do what I love, and grow as a person.
Thank you for filling that need in the community. What is your favorite subclass and your favorite weapon?
Andy: My favorite character is the Warlock. The Titan is great as well though lately I like to play Hunter. Basically, I like all the classes. But my go-to is definitely the Void Warlock. When it comes to guns, there are so many that I would like to name here but I will settle for my top 5: IKELOS_SG_v1.0.1 Shotgun, Nation of Beasts, Better Devils, Bygones, and One Thousand Voices.
That's a great arsenal you've acquired. What Destiny 2 content are you most looking forward to?
Andy: I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds in the following months. I’m super curious about Quria and Savathûn. And of course, as a team player, I'm looking forward to jumping into the new raid lair!
Is there anything else you would like to say to other members of the community who may be interested in creating content?
Andy: When it comes to creating a YouTube or Twitch account, I recommend setting small goals and not losing sight of them. Stay positive, and do not let it get you down if things do not go as planned. Persist and new opportunities will appear!
Thank you for stopping by to share your story.
If you speak German and have an appetite for a deeper dive into Destiny 2 lore, give Andy’s channel a look.
