I didn’t want to make a post about this until I’d had a chance to play with the other clan members, but for those who don’t know Destiny revolves pretty heavily around interaction between players. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic game on it’s own…but it can very, very quickly get boring if you aren’t willing to work with, team up, and help your fellow players—friend and stranger alike. Which can be somewhat off-putting at first if you’ve had really bad experiences with random gamers on other MMORPGs, like I have, or just aren’t willing to link up in voice chat with utterly random people you run into on maps.
Destiny does have a fairly good clan and group system, however, through their site (Bungie.net) that can help you find people you’re more inclined to get along with. The very first thing I did after realizing this was search for groups dedicated to making safe spaces for women and/or members of the MOGII (LGBTQAI / QUILTBAG) community. I found two for PS3/4 fairly quickly, and thus far they’ve proven to be exactly what they claim: inclusive and friendly spaces that can play without a lot of the conventional gamer baggage.
Females of Destiny: While I have an issue with calling human women “females,” the clan itself so far seems inclusive and everyone I’ve met is an absolute joy to work with. The age group is varied, with the average being somewhere in their mid-twenties. It is restricted joining, however, to assure that it is a safe space for women. Most of the group is on PS4, though I think a few members have it on PS3 as well.
Children of Nyx: I have a little less experience with the players here, as the group primarily exists on the PS3. Those I have met, though, are very fun and sweet. The premise of the group is, once again, providing a safe space for women and MOGII individuals, but allows for allies and other genders to enter as they please.
And as always, if any of my followers here have Destiny on PS4 and want to play, don’t be afraid to message me!
