Friday Night Raid By the Numbers

Last Friday, the 2old2play Friday night raid group achieved a major milestone by clearing the entire normal mode King's Fall raid for the first time, and doing so quite quickly, I might add (1 hour and 45 minutes). To celebrate, here are some Friday night raid statistics!

We've done 18 raids so far, starting Oct 16, 2015 and running every Friday except for the one that fell on Christmas Day.

We opened the Warpriest's door the very first raid (Oct 16), and then killed the Warpriest for the first time a week later (Oct 23). Two weeks later (Nov 6), we killed Golgoroth for the first time, and two weeks after that (Nov 20), the Sisters. Starting from an Oryx checkpoint, our first Oryx kill was Dec 18, and we successfully completed the Oryx Challenge that week. The full clear last Friday was our second Oryx kill.

Eighteen 2old2play guardians (list below) have participated in one or more Friday night raids, and a couple have been to almost every single one. Here they are!

DarthTabasco, BKVic, OldnAchy, BLAMnation, Hammerdrake, ver7igo, uamanchild03, SoulTerror, Duke12, Ra Darkman, bryjoe, x77x, Vaht Vokuree, DEEP_NNN, DoctorDoom71, Tenryuu N7, Krak64, EVILCLAW

Several more of you have supported the raid by your expressions of interest, contributions of advice, or signing up to be alternates. It's been a real community project. Kudos to all of you, with my thanks for many fun Friday nights. I look forward to more to come!

Edit: Added EVILCLAW to the participant list! Anyone else I forgot?

It has been a struggle at times, but Friday night proved Oryx is our bitch now. Bring hard mode on! I ran it Saturday up to the piston room when my internet dropped; we were flying through it. I expect us to have some issue but I don't see why we can't at least drop Golgoroth this Friday.

Congratulations!  Definitely a big milestone and one the entire group should be proud of.  Big thanks to Krak for coordinating every week.  Kudos also to Krak, Soul, Achy, and all the other raid vets for teaching / explaining mechanics.

I really enjoyed running the raid with you guys in the past but unfortunately can't make the regular 9pm ET start times anymore.  More than happy to sign up as a late alternate whenever I can.

Any plans to start hard mode runs anytime soon?

This Friday we are starting hard mode I believe is the general call. I'm sure we will still make some normal runs here and there for alts and to help out noobs.

Let me echo everyone else's comments! Thanks all and especially Krak. As far as numbers go, I was wondering how many of us 100% learned the raid in our Friday night sessions? I know that's true for me. I got a random invite to the raid the other night and was quite pleased to be one of the best informed in the group!

Would like to be apart of this again this Friday if there is space. I did,I  think, take Deep's place as an alternative on a Friday night back in January and we got to Dick wall when everyone quit. When I have checked forum raid list there always seemed to be a full list and then some. If there is room and you see me on, hit me up for normal raid.

Thanks

I appreciate the thanks, guys, so here are some of mine. This has been a great community to be a part of this past year. Thanks to doodirock and company, who keep this site up and running. Thanks to several of you who helped me out when I was just starting out in Destiny.  Those were my first Destiny groups, and they helped me a LOT. I'd like to add that I found DEEP's efforts with Tuesday night Halo inspirational as well, even though I've never participated (probably a good thing for everyone, given how awful I am at Halo).

EVILCLAW: You are right, and I will add you to the player list above! We are full and doing hard mode this week, but watch for the signup post to go out late Friday (almost always) or early Saturday (and sometimes full by Sunday). You would be most welcome.
