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

PSN Username = Hazymage
Age = 26-30
Gender = Male
When did you start playing Destiny? = Alpha/Beta/Day 1'er
How often do you play Destiny? = 3-4 Days/Week
How many characters do you have over 310 Light Level? = 2
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?
--I juggle bewteen what is most needed from the group, but I prefer my Sunsinger the most. Granted I always pic the mage class in gaming so I have a bias. Self-Rez is key to effective raiding as it is impossible to control all threats. The best raid group in my mind would be 1 Defender, 1 Nightstalker, and 4 Sunsingers

Is there anything about the class(s) you play that you don't enjoy?

--Nothing truly. I love the warlock! I would love to see Voidwalker gain some more raid utility.

What do you consider your strengths and weaknesses while playing your class?

--Strengths: I am a dead-eye with headshots. Currently I play Hawkmoon, and I have Black Spindel for certain bosses. As far as HM Kingsfall is concerned, I am able to perform any roll in the entire raid. I do not have a Touch of Malice yet, but I am normally the relic runner or on add control. Weakness: I can let my overconfidence drop my guard sometimes. Sometimes I bite more than I can chew.

What attracted you to our particular clan? Where did you hear about us?

--I heard about you from a Reddit personal I posted. I was responded to by TerminalFury46. I read over the clan synopsis and based on the dedication to consistent raid schedules, I was wanting to apply.

Have you been in any other Destiny clans?

--Since the Alpha I have been playing with a clan that is a mixture of both friends in real life and people Ive met online. Recently, many of my friends have quit playing due to life events and former avid raiders no longer play. I have been very reluctant to part ways as the raport with certain members is quite strong. However, recently the guild has not been raiding, and when raids do occur, members have been leaving mid-raid to go play other games. the combination of not being able to raid, and having non-dedicated raiders has convinced me to move on. I view leaving any clan run raid as a cardinal sin.

Have you ever been removed from a clan for misconduct?

--Negative. I still maintain good friendships via PSN and Facebook will all my clanmates past and present. (A decade worth of raiding)

What do you expect to gain from being in our clan?

--All I would like to gain from this is a group of good laid back folks who like to have fun, and down the toughest content. A consistent schedule is something I am seeking paramount to all else.

Do you utilize any outside resources related to Destiny?

--I have the Destiny app on my phone, and have been curious about the Item manager add-on. Aside from this, I have used Clans of Destiny.com Destiny LFG, Destiny Tracker, and pre-launch, crafted 6 videos detailing classes that garnered 50k+ views on youtube, Youtube.com/Uniquelyaveragegamers

Are you missing any key exotic weapons or armor pieces that are useful in the current raid?

--I do not have Touch of Malice, but I make up with this with effective skill and sniping. Additionally, I can run the relic for both Knights and no-Knights strat. I can farm Touch of Malice in no time if this is a requirement no problem.

Do you min-max your character's stats? Which stats and gear perks do you focus on?

--I focus on Intelligence and Discipline on my sunsinger. Currently I have 306 Int and the rest in Disc. I put Strength on the backburner, as I only use Scorch to give me Shielf of Flame in a pinch.

Have you raided in any other games? Please list your raiding history in Destiny.

--Raided in the following: World of Warcraft (Vanilla through WOTLK), DCUO, SWTOR, Phantasy Star Online 2, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I have a history of Tanking, DPS'ing and Healing. During SWTOR I tanked for a guild that World Firsted Warlord Kephess. I have been raiding in Destiny since the beginning. I have played since the Alpha, although I took a break during House of Wolves. Completed Hard Mode for VoG, Crota's End, and Kingsfall. When new content drops, I try and have it cleared before the weekend ends

How do you deal with high pressure or stressful situations?

--When gaming? I do not get stressed when playing multiplayer raids. I never rage quit, and I understand that banging our heads against the wall is part of progression. In my single player games, my frustration is handled with cuss words and fuming, but I ALWAYS mute myself for these.

How do you react to constructive feedback, be it negative or otherwise?

--People are trying to help. I understand that and build on it. I have a very corporate real world job, so I know the importance of taking positive criticism.

How are you with taking directions from someone in a leadership role?

--"I only need to know one thing: where they are" -Vasquez (Aliens)
Give me orders and I follow

How do you react when you realize you're putting in more effort than the next guy in your fireteam

--Not everyone is at the same skill level. It does not affect me at all. If the boss dies, then I am a happy camper.

What irritates you about other people and how do you usually deal with them?

--When people are dismissive, or when people move from positive feedback to insults. I despise guild drama, and I admire those who can work together. I am a very polite and friendly person.

What do you do for a living? Will there be any conflicts with our raiding schedule of Tue/Wed 7-11?

--I work National Sales for a large Investment firm in KC. It is important that I mention that I do not get off work until 7:00PM EST. I am normally home at or around 7:20 PM. EST So I would be about 20 or so minutes late if starting at 7:00 EST sharp. If this is okay with the fireteam, I can raid for 5 hours straight

Relax and take notes
