    Boss was as usual kind of annoying as you can't do consistent DPS on him until the latter phases. When we finally got him, it was using a combo of shields dropped by Lakiboy on the circles, with me dropping healing circles and dirtydisc dropping empowering rifts. You really need to focus on staying alive and putting DPS on the final boss once he stops that moving around nonsense.
    Picked up the engram last night from Hawthorne, thanks guys!
    The wife and I took a stab at the NF, considered looking for an available MP to fill out the fireteam, but she's still unsure about the whole playing with "strangers" thing. I try to tell her MPs are strange, but not strangers, so maybe one of these days. She'd never attempted a nightfall, and I hadn't done one in years, so it was good to get an idea of the new mechanics and the general difficulty without feeling like we were dropping the ball for anyone. Obviously with a fireteam of 2 "casual" guardians in the 275-278 power range we didn't stand much chance of making it in time. But it was good practice and nice to have a different sort of challenge in the game. Look forward to doing more of these going forward, and hopefully managing to get on at the right times to take my 2nd character on some runs with other MPs.

    I think for most of the engrams we need 50% or more MPs in a fireteam. 2/3 for most things. If the crucible engram doesn't pop sometime today I'll probably be looking for folks to jump in with this evening. I still haven't played any crucible in D2, should be interesting. Or maybe I can convince the Ol' Warlock to give it a go. She's never been one for PvP, but you never know. I imagine lots of yelling when she dies, but we all know addictive it can get once you start getting some traction and have a round or two where you give as good as you get.

    I have to say I'm getting very addicted to competitive crucible. I don't recall this format being in D1, but the limited lives/no respawn makes it so intense. Last night I ran with a friend on mine (who I'm trying to get to join MP, he's got two kids), and we ended up in Survival with one other guy. For some reason it made us 3 v 4. Other games always fill in the empty slot but it doesn't seem Destiny does? Neither of us is great at PvP, but I figured what the hell lets see how we do one man down. We lose round one, but not badly. After our first win, I kind of thought to myself that we could pull it off. Finally get to the last round, three wins for each team. The last match is pretty even, when my friend and our random partner pull their supers and wreck them. The timer runs out, and somehow we pull off the win. I'm so lucky I didn't wake my daughter, because I'm sure I squealed with joy just how she does.

    Was away for two weeks and disappointed to return and see that it looks like many of the PS players that are most active in the game have left the MP in-game clan.

    Where did you guys go and should I just disband the MP clan?

    Presto Bitch!!

    There are a few on the Xbox side still playing. I’m not advocating disbanding but much of the defection has been due to too few players to maximize clan engrams. If you do disband it isn’t just for The PSN side but both consoles.

    As Busy said, the in-game clan is now both consoles, and there's still a decent number of folks playing. We're still maxing out 100k clan XP each week, and at least getting the crucible engram. I don't see any reason to disband it, if for no other reason than it's good to have an 'official' clan connected to Team MP. Besides, we've maxed out the perks for the season, and I'd like to take advantage of having those, however unnoticeable they may be.

    The main reasons folks have stated for leaving are not active enough, no groups to run NF / Raid / Trials, or leaving for a clan with more folks in their particular timezone.
    To some extent those that have left have scattered, aside from about 6-8 who all went to the "Casual Elitists" clan, ironically stating there weren't enough folks to do NF / Trials... but the number that left are more than enough, so I don't get that. Aside from that, Moe, Mecha, Madlob are still off in their "CRAP... Just Wipe" clan with Kamikaze, etc and don't seem interested in rejoining us.

    There's several of us I see on PS4, though we may not play together much, we enjoy the clan rewards. I suspect as the game gets more updates and expansions we'll see more activity. At least I hope so.

    In the three years I have been playing Destiny almost every night (yes, it's sad), I can mention maybe a couple of times I have played with fellow MP clan mates. So detached is this clan from Destiny, I created my own group within Destiny. My name on the PS4 is TheViolentLight. While I still identify as MP, it became necessary to start a clan that can achieve the various objectives of the game.

    Not here to step on any toes, I've been with MP since just about day 1 (that's right COD Wii Daddies and Moms!) and dont plan on going anywhere (same for my nintendo switch)

    Later!

While I still identify as MP, it became necessary to start a clan that can achieve the various objectives of the game. We now have 40 members and we achieved level 6 a number of weeks ago. If you're looking for a group on Destiny 2 with players who play on the regular, look it up. I'd love if we could have all the MP crew who plays in the DESTINY clan.

    Not here to step on any toes, I've been with MP since just about day 1 (that's right COD Wii Daddies and Moms!) and dont plan on going anywhere (same for my nintendo switch), just offering an option for those of us from MP that play a bit more in Destiny (2).

    FYI we run everything and help everybody.

    Later!

    Huh, guess you've been an MP longer than I have by about 2 years. Oddly, in 6 years as an MP, and having played Destiny and Destiny 2 with the PS4 crew... I have no idea who you are.

    Not trying to be offensive, just have to question the statement "so detached is this clan from Destiny..." coming from someone who wasn't around the site in 2014, didn't show up on the Destiny 1 player list until 2017... so missed out on the years when a lot of MPs were actively playing Destiny. I mean, if you don't have the MPs actively playing the game on your friends' list, and vice versa, of course you're not going to play with them. But you can't really make claims as to the general interest of MPs in a game, when you aren't engaged with the group playing the game, nor frequent the forums much in general.

    See, there's the rub. There're actually a lot of MPs playing Destiny 2. But their spread across a variety of in-game clans, and much of that has come from various members, at various times, decrying that there aren't enough people playing, there isn't enough interest, etc etc and then splitting off for other clans. Basically, you've all created the problem you're complaining about.

    Team MP has an official Destiny 2 clan, and we've been level 6 for quite some time. We hit the weekly XP cap quicky and easily each week. Now, what we don't always get are nightfall and trials engrams, and have yet to get a raid engram. Why? Because everyone interested in, or who have time for those activities decided to split off and go to other clans. So those who have remained loyal to the MP clan, even if they do those activities, generally don't end up doing them with a team of 50% or more MP clan members, so... no engram for the clan. Oh well.

    Lastly. While MPs are welcome to play with whoever they like, and go off and join whatever in-game clans they like. Coming here to recruit for other clans is clearly prohibited in our Code of Conduct. I'm not going to start handing out bans or anything, but I do have to ask that you edit your post to remove the name of your other clan and anything that asks MPs to come join your clan instead of the Team MP clan. Sorry, them's the rules.

    Well said Gink.

    I really wish we had all stuck together in a single clan instead of what happened. However, I have seen a fall off of people on my friends list in the game the last few times I got on (which - admittedly have only been a couple of times in the past couple of weeks). I think a lot of those guys who went with the "Casual Elitists" stopped playing because of the lack of interesting end game content.

    I still get on once a week and pick up the clan engram - which you are correct is still being earned every week - and will usually complete a couple of the weekly assignments, but still haven't done the raid ever, and haven't done the nightfall for a couple of weeks now.

    I tried for a couple of straight weeks to organize Thursday or Friday night raids, and was largely ignored. Me, dirtydisc, and helmethead got up to 5 players one time, but just couldn't find that 6th for the raid.

    Dirtydisc and I may try using reddit or LFG tonight if anyone is going to be on.

    Presto Bitch!!

    It seems like Destiny 2 hasn't held folks' interest quite as well as the first game. I try to run 2 characters through Flashpoint, Clan XP, and Call To Arms each week, and take a whack at the nightfall every now and again. Could probably do all that in 2 evenings each week, but usually end up playing more because the wife insists on it. I still love the gunplay, but like to have some sort of payoff for my time, which the game is lacking at this point.

    Fortunately we are less than a month away from new content. I doubt it will fix everything wrong with the game, but should at least bring another flurry of activity as folks come back to the game.
