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

PSN Username = belgian_rofl
Age = 26-30
Gender = Male
When did you start playing Destiny? = September 2014
How often do you play Destiny? = 5-6 Days/Week
How many characters do you have at max 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? = Titan. Great support (WoL comes up big in King's Fall) and awesome damage with Sunbreaker if need be. I like the balance of survivability and damage and I feel like I'm really contributing to a raid when I've got a bubble and I'm blowing stuff up.
Is there anything about the class(s) you play that you don't enjoy? = Striker is a bit underwhelming in PvE and PvP. Otherwise I love Titan.
What do you consider your strengths and weaknesses while playing your class(s)? = I know my class, I know how to position bubbles, I know what I can and cannot do. I don't run in out of cover, guns blazing, like I own the place. Knowing your limitations is important. Weaknesses might be overall damage but I try and do as much as I can while buffing the group. Also Titans are a little slow compared to other classes.
What attracted you to our particular clan? Where did you hear about us? = I heard about you searching for #recruitment on the Destiny forums. I'm looking for a clan of mature players - no kids - who understand the importance of real life commitment. I'm married and I'm looking for a clan of people who understand those commitments. Mature players with a sense of humor matter too.
Have you been in any other Destiny clans? = No.
Have you ever been removed from a clan for misconduct? = No.
What do you expect to gain from being in our clan? = Friends. Honestly, I love progression and endgame content. That's awesome. But without people, it's just a game. Players who I can have fun with, who I feel comfortable with, who are good at this game - that's what I'd like to gain from this clan. Let's want to chill on Google Hangouts together even when we're just farming or doing Court of Oryx.
Do you utilize any outside resources related to Destiny? = Destiny app, DestinyTracker, Destinylfg.com and .net
Are you missing any key exotic weapons or armor pieces that are useful in raiding? = Touch of Malice. Have 39 fragments on my Titan, 42 on my warlock, so I just have to get those and do the strike. No exotic sword either (not for lack of trying, just need those 25 Crucible kills and I'll be fine the rest of the way.)
Do you min-max your character's stats? Which stats and gear perks do you focus on? = Yes, I prefer INT/DIS but with the two pieces of raid gear I got, I'm currently more STR. I'm balanced right now but again, don't need my melee up that much.
If you have prior raiding experience in other games besides Destiny, please list it here. = Raided in WoW during Wrath, had raid nights and a weekly schedule but was in second raid group which got little attention compared to main group. Ended up leaving WoW during Wrath and never went back. Raided in FFXIV for a while too, did all endgame dungeons available on release.
How do you deal with high pressure or stressful situations? = Google and relax. Take a breathe and see what I did wrong. Did I jump on the platform early? Did I not take cover? Reevaluate and take it again from the top. If I don't know something, I Google it or ask someone who does know. If someone is being difficult, I tend to speak up and try and calm things down. I work with doctors all day so I know a thing or two about egos. Best not to let them get in the way and just approach things with a level head.
How do you react to negative feedback, justified or otherwise? = I process it and see if it's good or not. Does it help me? I don't get mad, I don't fight, I don't retaliate. If it's not helpful, if it's just mean-spirited or dumb, I brush it off and move on.
How are you with taking directions from someone in a leadership role? = That's life, man. Do it every day. Let the people who know take charge and I'll follow. With raids, I could know everything about it but somebody will know more, always. I can't be the smartest guy in the room. We can all learn from one another and listening is the best way to do that.
How do you react when you realize you're putting in more effort than the next guy in your fireteam? = Maybe that person is having an off-day or maybe his/her kid is tugging at their leg. Maybe I'm just having a good day and I'm kicking ass. It's not about who is better or worse, it's about doing your job, your assigned role. No reason to get upset. If it effects the team, then maybe I'll speak up and see whats' the trouble, make sure everything is alright.
What irritates you about other people and how do you usually deal with them? = I'm not a huge fan of the tryhard MLG gamers who eat Doritos and teabag my corpse and don't know what the sun is. I don't have sixteen hours a day to play and those kind of people bum me out. Otherwise, just being a know-it-all is annoying and I let it slide most times, don't be bothered by it. People making the same mistake over and over is annoying too. Just teach them to stop doing it and hopefully they'll stop.
What do you do for a living? Will there be any conflicts with our raiding schedule of Tue/Wed 7-11? = I work 9-5 M-F at a hospital. My schedule doesn't change so I am always around for evenings and weekends EST.

We have a couple HM Oryx kills to clean up from earlier in the week tonight at 7:00 PM EST. If you would be available before, say around 6:00, that would be great. If not, we probably won't get to you until 9:00.

Sorry, I've been out of work recently recuperating from surgery (nothing major, septum surgery) and I've been sleeping all day from the pain killers. By tomorrow, I'll back back to my normal schedule. Anyway, I'm about to eat dinner so I can't do 6 but I'll be around after your HM Oryx clean-ups. Whenever you are available, I'll be on farming and cleaning up quests.
