Due to the overwhelming interest in Waypoint Destiny Clans, Waypoint has made the decision to make them official. This would not have been possible without the hard work and effort of the clan founders. This doesn’t mean much to you, the clan member, but will allow for increased communication across all Waypoint’s platforms, as mods and staff are going to be in touch with clan leaders and in many cases be parts of the various clans. The goal of these clans is to uphold all the things Waypoint stands for, and to shoot a whole lot of aliens while doing so. Shout out to @crasstiger for these excellent banners.
Right now there are:
Friends at the Tower [FATT]
Owls in the Barn [OWLS] (closed)
Friends at the Farm [FARM] (closed)
Popplio Pals [PALS]
Red Tree Owls [RTO]
In the lead up to the Solstice of Heroes event and the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken we will be reopening our PC clan, Red Tree Owls now that Popplio Pals is near capacity. As part of reopening the clan we have removed any players that were currently in [RTO]. Apologies if you were caught in that wipe, you are more than welcome to request to join the clan again. Folks who are currently in [PALS] and would prefer to be in our other PC clan are also welcome to move over, as well as those not previously in one of our clans.
As far as our console clans go, we will continue with just Friends at the Tower at the moment but we will be watching the activity come the launch of the next expansion in September and will reopen another console clan to accomodate new players if need be.
The goal of these clans are to be inclusive fun places to experience the multiplayer content of the game, organize activities, take part in a group of like-minded players and to make playing online co-op feel safe and less daunting. The following rules of conduct are intended to promote that environment:
Rule 1: Bigotry, including but not limited to racist, transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, islamophobic, anti semitic, ableist, neurotypical bias, kinkshaming, etc. speech will not be tolerated.
Rule 2: Threatening behavior and harassment of any kind will not be tolerated.
Rule 3: When joining a group or starting a group, ask people’s pronouns. Use gender neutral language (“everyone/anyone/y’all” vs. “you guys”).
Rule 4: Abide by the larger Forum and Discord Rules and Codes of Conduct if/when applicable.
If rules are broken, admins of clans and mods of other platforms will review the incidents and take action accordingly. The most likely outcome is that you will be removed from the guild, if not other platforms as well.
If someone is called out for breaking the rules and aren’t banned, we expect them to admit they might have been wrong, understand and listen to criticism and make an effort to do better next time. Don’t repeat mistakes and learn from the experience.
If someone is making you feel uncomfortable, please reach out to the admins. We are here to help.
As a clan member, you will be able to see when fellow clanmates are online within the Destiny roster menu. Don’t be afraid to send a message to someone and ask if they want to play. Alternatively, if you receive an invitation and don’t feel like playing co-op, that’s ok too! Don’t take it personally if you don’t hear back from a player, and never feel obligated to join someone’s fireteam. Respect peoples’ boundaries!
HOW TO JOIN:
If you haven’t already, we recommend you join the Waypoint discord as that is where we organize for co-operative play. Message Mo per the directions in this thread.
If you are currently in a clan, you must leave said clan before sending a request to one of our available clans.
As well as sending a request, please post a message in the thread to let as know who you are. Alternatively you can DM one of the admins on discord. Please DM either crasstiger, Cado, or Emily to let us know you’re interested in playing in one of our clans.
The Friends at the Tower [FATT] clan roster is currently at 55 members (as of 12th September).
The Popplio Pals [PALS] clan roster is currently at 100 members (as of 12th September).
The Red Tree Owls [RTO] clan roster is currently at 30 members (as of 12th September).
The Waypoint Discord is the primary place clan members group up. You can alternatively look up the Waypoint PSN community, Friends at the Waypoint, or Bungie’s Waypoint Clan Group Chats in order to group up with fellow players.
Thanks to @Brandunn for their handy guide to help new and returning players coming back to Destiny 2 with the launch of Forsaken!
