Greeting everyone! I go by Edoctor7 on Xbox, but my friends call me E. I’m 39 years old, a father of 3, and I’m from Chicago. I wanted to join a group because now that my kids are a little older, I finally have free time at night to start gaming again once they’re in bed. I actually haven’t played a video game in 4 years, so getting my finger dexterity back has been a bit of a grind. I returned to playing Destiny after my long hiatus, but I found it incredibly difficult to try and play the endgame content as a solo. I tried some other clans but found it incredibly frustrating and this seems like the right place. I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hello Everyone. Thanks for the welcoming. Im 47 years old. I play mostly fps games but sometimes you'll find me playing racing games aswell. I spend a couple hours a day on COD vanguard or Cold War. I can hold my own on both. I do stream under the same name on twitch when im having a good day. I work 3rd shift so most of my gaming is done between 3pm and 8

Hello, I'm Bloo. Not much to say really. I'm just a middle-aged gamer looking for a community to be a part of. I play NMS, Diablo 3, Warframe, Borderlands titles. Occasionally some 7DTD, POE and Red Dead online.

Hello all. I am an old gamer (beta tested Ultima Online) quickly closing in on 73 years of age who often plays Destiny 2 (currently Witch Queen). I also have somewhat controlled Parkinson's disease and thus am a bit weak on the twitch skills and thus am a real sluggard at jump puzzles. I am the president of a business and work full time, but I play most nights in NA (Central Time Zone) and often with my 43 year-son who is a software developer (and skilled at gaming beyond my wildest comprehension). Frankly, I find plunging into a Vanguard mission that takes me into an unknown instance at breakneck speed uncomfortable and I am sure it is frustrating to the other Guardians with whom I am grouped to have an old fart like me that has to really work at jump puzzles, and at least part of the time hasn't a clue as to what we are doing other than killing aliens. I play a Titan, currently, season level 90, power level 1562 but still feel rather ignorant of many of the game mechanics. I do follow well though.

I am also a veteran (Army) and have difficulty plunging into a fight blindly. I prefer to take it at what I consider a reasonable speed, taking a good look before, sometimes literally, jumping into a brawl. Years of military experience have built a set of behaviors in me that make crazy runs into the middle of a hostile situation critically uncomfortable for this old soldier. I enjoy working with an organized fire team, as I did in the real world, where we shoot, move, and communicate as a real team, with each member assigned a role and an area of responsibility.

As a wee bit of background, I qualified as an Armor and Armored Air Cavalry commander, as well as an AH1 Cobra attack helicopter and Air Cavalry aviator and commander. I have been married for 51 years and have five successful adult professional offspring and nine grandchildren. Post-Army, I started a financial business and it has been reasonably successful now for forty years.

I am looking for a clan with members who are willing to take it a bit slower than the usual crazy Destiny 2 crowd and who will tolerate a fumble-fingered old soldier who prefers to not blindly jump off cliffs or dive into ambushes but wields a mean rifle, bow, and/or machine gun. If I would fit in here, let me know. My in-game Destiny (Bungie) name is Loden_The-Gray #9090.

Greetings all. I play Destiny 2 as "Loden_The-Gray #9090", primarily as a Titan in the evenings and on weekends in the U.S. Central Time Zone. I am 73 and have Parkinson's disease, thus am a real klutz at jump puzzles. I am also an Army veteran and tend to not like diving into unknown areas at breakneck speed. As a result, 3-person matched missions are a real pain for me and, I am sure an irritant for most high-speed Guardians with whom I am matched in a three-person mission. I have tried and to some degree succeeded in keeping up, but it is a bit like putting lipstick on a pig, irritating to the pig, and pretty uncomfortable for everyone involved.

I am looking for a clan that might have a few others who prefer to take things a bit slower in multi-person missions and even set up a bit of organization before diving into combat.

Hey everyone :)

I'm Nacho and I guess I am considered to be an 'older' gamer. I'm 54 and married, we have 3 adult kids.

I started gaming with Counterstrike many years ago and have played many games since. Most recently I
have been playing Destiny 2 however I have got a bit bored with it recently so just this week I began to play PUBG
and Fortnite.

Disclaimer: I'm not great at PUBG or Fortnite however I am improving everyday. I play to relax and have fun
therefore if you are a 'serious/hardcore' player I will most likely annoy you unintentionally. If having fun with a chilled
team mate is what you want then I'm your guy. :D

Hello,
My name is Klug and I just learned about this community today. Let's see, a bit about myself... I'm a 42-year-old, happily married, father of 3 who enjoys spending his evenings after kiddos head off to bed playing video games. I grew up in the midwest but have lived on the west coast for going on 20 years now. I moved out here when the Army stationed me at Ft. Lewis, WA where I met my wife, and aside from moving around a bit, we haven't left the PNW since. We have 3 children, twin 12-year-old Girls & a 15-year-old son. While they are mostly self-sufficient these days one of my daughters has CP and as such on occasion, I need to step away from the PC for 10 minutes or so to take care of her in one fashion or another. These events are unplanned so the folks I play with, need to be aware that this happens sometimes, and please do not get upset. She comes first when it comes to gaming.

My normal schedule is that I typically sit down to play games after 8 pm Pacific although sometimes I sneak on early :P and play until midnight or so. I try not to stay on too late on work nights but have been known to keep trucking until 1 am if I'm having a good time or working on something in-game and I'm not ready to stop yet. On the weekends, it's a bit more of a crapshoot... I like to take as much time to game as I can but I also like to go camping and have movie/date nights with my wife. (depending on the game I'm playing, she plays too).

As for my personality... I'm pretty laid back and easy to get along with. I'm a redneck at heart, meaning I am a country boy living in a city world. I grew up with strong values to have respect for other people but that doesn't mean we don't harass each other in good fun. I'm not into the Racist crap either, although a good joke is a good joke and I am not easily offended hahaha. I tend to laugh at just about everything because life is too short to get hung up on the bullshit.

Edit: Completely forgot to mention the games I like to play....

Currently playing:
  • Diablo 3 (hoping to find an active clan to play with throughout the season not just the beginning)
  • Ark (looking for a new modded server cluster for my wife, son & I to play on)
Plan on returning:
  • WoW Retail once Shadowlands is finally over :P
Enjoyed but lost interest after my group fell apart:
  • Lost Ark
  • New World
Interested in but havent found others to play with so lost interest
  • Neverwinter
Ive played many other games over the years too, but these are my current favs
