I just filled out application '10 PM Bedtime'. Here is my submission for your consideration:

PSN Username = xE-T-H-A-Nx
Age = 20-25
Gender = Male
When did you start playing Destiny? = December 2014
How often do you play Destiny? = Everyday
How many characters do you have over 310 Light Level? = 3
After reading our recruitment post, what activity do you think 10 PM Bedtime primarily focuses on? = Raiding & PvE
Which class is your favorite in a raid setting and why? = Difficult to choose between my Hunter and my Titan, my first character was Hunter so that will always be my preference. They both play crucial roles in many areas of the raid which can help a lot, Warlocks self-res isn't needed in my opinion because with a good fireteam going flawless is easy enough.
Is there anything about the class(s) you play that you don't enjoy? = Nothing game changing or anything that influences my performance in raids on my Hunter, I thoroughly enjoy the Nightstalker subclass and I think it's very balanced. However the shaders and Harrowed armor for the hunter is the only disappointment I have with it. Warlock is my least played character and that's mostly because it doesn't feel like it offers very much for a raid, the only use for any of the subclasses are self-res and storm caller for add control.
What do you consider your strengths and weaknesses while playing your class(s)? = I've completed the King's Fall raid numerous times and can play all roles, I can take Golgoroth's gaze and know the callouts for both challenge and regular mode. I can be runner on all my characters (preferably hunter or Titan). Jumping puzzles are no problem. I can hold my own weight and know all if not most of the various strategies used throughout the raid. The only weakness I can think of is my Warlock being underlevelled, it is at 318 light whereas my other 2 characters are 319 and I haven't fully maxed the sunsinger subclass as of yet.
What attracted you to our particular clan? Where did you hear about us? = I was searching for a Destiny PS4 clan on a reddit forum post, I was very interested in this specific clan when I found out that it specialised in PvE because that is by far my favourite element of the game.
Have you been in any other Destiny clans? = I've been in 3 or 4 previous clans with friends, purely for the trophies which require being in a clan, no clan worth mentioning however.
Have you ever been removed from a clan for misconduct? = No I have not. The only time I have left a clan was on my own accord.
What do you expect to gain from being in our clan? = New friends to play with that are top tier players, my friends that play destiny now are mostly mid-tier and 300-310 light. It would be beneficial for me to be able to fly through the King's Fall raid as fast as possible and not having to carry someone is a huge bonus. I'm interested in speedrunning Destiny so doing a fast raid would also help practise in that aspect.
Do you utilize any outside resources related to Destiny? = I use the Ashtar Commander app to transfer gear between characters and my vault whilst in a raid, I have boss specific load outs saved to make things easier. I also use Destiny LFG to find randoms to do the raid with when I don't have enough friends online. Also I use the bungie website itself a lot.
Are you missing any key exotic weapons or armor pieces that are useful in the current raid? = No, I have a 320 Spindle, 320 ToM, 320 1000-Yard, etc. I also have most exotic armor on all 3 characters.
Do you min-max your character's stats? Which stats and gear perks do you focus on? = Yes, I heavily spec I to Intellect and Discipline, I don't feel I need my smoke grenades too often so I don't go for strength. On my Hunter my stats are 5 Intellect, 4 Discipline and 1 Strength. Gear perks I choose extra sniper ammo because this ensures I have maximum Spindle ammo when killing Golgy or Warpriest.
Have you raided in any other games? Please list your raiding history in Destiny. = I have raided in numerous other games as MMORPG'S are by far my favourite genre of game. I have raided in WoW, Wildstar, Diablo 3, FFXIV, etc.
How do you deal with high pressure or stressful situations? = Remain calm and keep trying until I succeed, I'm not one to back down and rage quit after wiping a few times. I've raided with groups that were 290 light and the raid has lasted hours upon hours with numerous wipes. I find it helps to occasionally take a break if everyone is stressed.
How do you react to constructive feedback, be it negative or otherwise? = Any feedback is appreciated, if I can do something better to help anyone on my fireteam then I'm willing to give it a shot. Many players have different playstyles and different ways they complete raids.
How are you with taking directions from someone in a leadership role? = I can do this no problem, before I was skilled in the raid I had to listen to others as they helped teach me the aspects of the game. Now I'm usually the sherpa in a raid and I help others instead.
How do you react when you realize you're putting in more effort than the next guy in your fireteam? = It doesn't phase me, if they're just slightly less skilled than I am then I can't complain but if they're not contributing whatsoever then I'll let them know they need to up their game and help out if it's costing everyone else on the fireteam time and effort.
What irritates you about other people and how do you usually deal with them? = Nothing really does, really high pitched static noises from bad mics is always annoying but that's not their fault of course. People that give up after wiping 1-2 times annoys me and also those that aren't willing to help new people out, we were all nooks at one stage.
What do you do for a living? Will there be any conflicts with our raiding schedule of Tue/Wed 7-11? = I am a self-employed IT engineer, my work doesn't consist of many hours so I am able to play destiny a lot of the time. There will never be a conflict in that time frame and I will almost always be online then.
