Europe - most members are London time zone.
We are a casual group of players who usually play Weekday Evenings and Weekends UTC. Our average age is 39. Headsets/ Mics are strongly preferred. If that sounds like you, join us!
Note from group mod:
Originally a motley crew of like-minded destiny players from a few different clans and groups (who also share the same NSFW sense of humour and synchronised play time), who dare we say it, may have become good mates; BOOM SQUAD was created to be a friendly, laid back and laugh-fuelled place to group up and play video games.
As a group and clan, we welcome anyone who is up for a laugh, helping others and being a decent human being! We want to have as much fun getting stuff done as possible, no fannying about, but no elitist crap here either. Everyone can learn and get to that end game. There’s no dictatorship and no “us and them” between the mods and non mods.
If you are looking for a laid back, friendly group to chill with, jump on board. If you are a friendly Sherpa who would like to help people more often, BOOM! Welcome to the squad. If you’re struggling to reach that end game and can’t find a group to the get those “10 clears and a gjallahorn”, get in here!
We really want to keep this group friendly, laid back and full of laughs. We feel the best way to do this is to keep it small and personal (so well done for finding the group snoopy!), if you’ve found us and think we are a bunch you’ll get along with, we do have a few requests of all members to keep things smooth and fun
Most of us have limited playtime around full-time jobs and family commitments, please respect this time by not always turning up late or joining games that you’re not going to make. We understand that last minute pull-outs are sometimes unavoidable, but the same no-showers’ and last minute drop-outs are seriously unacceptable and eat into our playtime waiting in orbit and mess people around. If you can’t make a game, please let us know at least an hour before start time so someone else can have that spot and try to only join games that you’re sure you can make!
We’re here to enjoy ourselves, shoot sh*t and grab that sweet loot, get stuff done in the time that we have with laughs along the way, focus up and don’t fanny about! However, if you’re in a game with someone who isn’t quite “getting it”, spend some time showing them the ropes and helping them out, be kind and considerate with your fellow human beings, no slamming, bitching, moaning, blaming or just generally being a fud. Be chill, we all started somewhere and sometimes a team takes a couple of runs to gel, no raging or temper tantrums, we’re not interested in the sweaty, elitist bullsh*t.
If you’re not spending most the game laughing, you’re not doing it properly! This is definitely an adult group, and probably not the best place for a millennial-politically correct-snowflake. We’re here to have a laugh and enjoy ourselves outside of the usual constraints of work and family commitments. Everyone should be able to have a laugh and take the pi*s out of themselves without the fear of being pulled up on offending someone because of some ridiculous “politically correct” nonsense. Leave that at work guys, this is our free time.
To be absolutely crystal clear: Any form of bullying, harassment, victimising or any form of toxic player is not welcome here. If somehow, that kind of person has slipped in, they will very quickly be booted out.
We are here to hang out and have fun, not to be made to feel like sh*t from some fud. Toxicity will not be tolerated. If you think we have a toxic member in the ranks, please let one of the Mods know. If you’re a bit of a fud and enjoy talking down to people, making people feel bad or just generally like waving your E-PEEN around, please click ‘LEAVE GROUP’ because you’re not going to fit in here.
If at any point, you are having issues with another member or feel you have been treated unfairly, PLEASE SEND A MESSAGE TO ONE OF OUR FRIENDLY MODS. We aim to resolve any and all problems as best as we can, so if you think something (or someone!) has flown under the Mod radar, please let us know ASAP.
P.S. In the (albeit unlikely) event that you are having an issue with a Mod, send a PM to another Mod, we won’t gang up!
As you can see, we are pretty quiet on here, but if you pop over to our discord channel where we’re a lot more gobby, you’ll get to spend some more time with the crew, join in on the laughs and discuss any pre-arranged games and Sherpa sessions. If you're having an issue with the discord link (it's taking you to your 100 Dashboard), just let us know in the chat and we'll generate a new one for you.
You will never be under any obligation to change your clan or be bombarded with invites from us, that’s not what we are about. However, if you are looking to join our actual destiny clan “Boom Platoon”, here’s the link
We’re not just Destiny obsessed and most of us play a variety of games, so if your looking to team up on RDR2, Battlefield V, The Division 2 etc or looking forward to the much-anticipated Anthem, let us know!
We love the destiny community and being inclusive is what it’s all about, working around everyone’s busy schedules is sometimes a pain and naturally our resident Sherpas also need time to master the raid themselves and slot in a few speed runs. If you are a resident Sherpa and would like to set up a teaching session, please let us know and there’ll be others there to help. Equally, if you are looking for a few friendly Sherpas, feel free to set up a game or get in touch with one of the mods and we’ll help pre-arrange.
The founding members are predominately a raid team, however, some of us are beasts in the crucible so if you’re looking to get a team together, whether it be to take down riven or get your lunas, there’ll be a team waiting.
Know all encounters and have a good attitude.
Dashboard was looking a bit empty! No idea where I'll be up to at this point but if anyone fancies running around DC hit me up.
Petra's Run Weekend: Part 2. Bring your Warlocks (if you have 'em) and your A Game.
