Hi, my name is Bill, and I am addicted to Destiny. Before Destiny, the last FPS I played was Goldeneye on N64. I was hesitant to buy Destiny for that reason alone; but one of my good friends kept pushing to buy it; needless to say, peer pressure is a motha... I didnt buy the game new, picked up a used copy from Gamestop, figured if I didn't like it, I am out $15 less dollars. After about 30 minutes of playing the game, I forgot that it was a FPS and was completely intrigued by the game. My first patrol through the cosmodrome took place around 3am cst and there werent many Guardians on my map. I didnt know what I was doing, dregs and vandals running around, thinking about being alone in an environment full of enemies was intense and captivating. Each day that I play the game I fell more in love with it. I thoroughly enjoyed it, prior to Destiny, I was all about that GTAV life... to date, I havent played GTA since before the heist release.. I have never had as much fun playing a video game as I do playing Destiny. Just when I thought the game couldnt get any better; I happened upon and joined Alpha Company 85. This took my enjoyment to a new level; the group of guys/gals that are in my group/clan are truly amazing. We play regularly just about everyday and I feel like my circle of friends has expanded. We are all like minded and have terrific conversations that span beyond the world of Destiny. The Destiny community is something I never new existed but now I cannot picture playing Destiny without it. We find new ways to enjoy the game together, just recently we began holding Raid Races where you can GET PAID TO RAID. I am a Mod, and one of our other Mods suggested that we hold Raid Races. 2 or more fireteams start a raid at the same time and the first team to beat the boss wins. Then that winning teams votes on an MVP, and that MVP receives a PSN gift card code for $20 provided by one of the Mods. There is nothing to gain here but fun, nobody is trying to earn profit, just increase the amount of fun that we share together. The generosity and support among our group I feel is second to none. Our the100 group is Alpha Company 85 and our official PSN clan is Alpha 85 Reloaded. We are a close group that welcomes all who want to maximize their fun potential while playing Destiny. If this appeals to you, and you do not belong to a clan, or are not happy with your clan, visit us, you are more than welcome. I do not intend for this message to be a ruse in order to "promote" our clan, I just wanted to share our experiences as I feel they are unique and are a testimony to the great Destiny community. Just the other day I was patrolling Venus knocking out some Queens bounties when I happened upon a group of 5 that was trying to enter VOG. I noticed they were struggling to get the spire erected. I hopped off my sparrow and lent a hand in knocking out the Praetorians. Instantly I received party and game invitations, unfortunately I did not have time for a raid, but I stayed until they had the spire up. This was just a chance encounter, yet it resulted in me befriending some really good Guardians. They were very welcoming and appreciative of my assistance and expressed their gratitude. To me, this is another example of the extraordinary Destiny community. Though I love playing Destiny I feel my addiction is bittersweet in the essence that I do not play any other games. I wanted to buy Battlefield, The Witcher, Arkham Knight, but I didn't because I knew they would just be collecting dust right next to Dying Light on my shelf. I wish I had more time to play these games, but honestly, I think I would just play more Destiny. The game is great, but the community is greater. If any of you are like minded and enjoy playing this great game, feel free to add me or join our group, my tag is, LTsMIGHTYMIDGETS. Take care of each other Guardians, kill them dead!
