...blaming Destiny and the King's Fall Raid...

...on Saturday I was having a TERRIBLE time playing Destiny...I was continually getting kicked from the servers...loosing connection to the servers once, twice or even thrice an hour...and except for one or two longer periods, it was basically UNPLAYABLE!!! Sunday morning I fired up the computer to check on a few things and noticed that I was having issues, so I took a quick Speedtest.net reading...now, I am normally a 12ms Ping, 75 Down and 5 Up; but this morning I was getting 100+ms, 2 Down and 4 Up...that's right TWO (2) Down!!! ...rebooted the modem and the router and now I'm back to my 10/75/5...so maybe it wasn't Destiny's fault after all and I take back all of those harsh, foul words I was using to describe Destiny last night...

...as a side note on the King's Fall Raid...though I do a lot of pissing and moaning about running that Raid and could probably stand to have some cheese to go along with my "whine", I really do want to run it sometime...but to mmattes, Danomight and bierpanda, last night was not a good night...it showed that you guys left the fire team and then everyone just DISAPPEARED in The Tower, and then I was booted from the server, respawned in The Tower and then immediately lost connection AGAIN!!! ...I rage quit...sure, I'm probably gonna' die, A LOT, in the Raid, but to be trying to accomplish something and having your attempts DENIED due to circumstances beyond your control...well, that's just not kewl...

...now, to get dressed and go see if this rebooted modem allows me to play without raging so much...

I have the same problem sometimes. I have to reboot and clear out my cache. The more I play online the more it seems I have to do both.

Hey Caddec, I'll run the raid with you any time, though I haven't even stepped foot into it yet.  Would love to get a Central/Pacific time group running this because no matter what night I'm on, there's usually one or two groups already running it and a couple of us one-off's playing grab-ass on patrol.  I say we try to join a group on LFG if we can't muster one up ourselves next time.  Hopefully we can find a good group that will explain the mechanics to us.
Your Speedtest.net stats made me want to run my own, knowing I tend to have some nights where I get booted repeatedly and other nights are just fine.  Right now, I'm running:
22 ms ping
30.08 Mbps download speed
6.23 Mbps upload speed
I'm somewhat in the middle of your two quoted stats, but would love to compare to others... I have no idea if this is good/bad/ugly.

I haven't attempted the King's Fall raid either, Destiny isnt a game Im very good at & I still feel lost half the time but Ive managed to get by. I dont usually join a fireteam with OaD'ers from reading posts there are some "serious" Destiny players here & I would probably be dead weight....but I would like to tackle that raid one of these days, preferably b4 BLOPS3 comes out. lol

We have gotten almost a dozen people their first completion and would be glad to help out. We have been able to get a team with multiple people new to it through in a night or two. Just pick a time and we will set it up.

Coffee, Caddec, koojo, and anyone else just let us know when you are available. We aren't all that serious and half the fun is rolling new folks through it so don't even sweat it. Just pick a time that works for everyone and we will rock that thing.

...my "re-booted" modem and Wifi did just fine Sunday, with only a couple of "glitches in the matrix"...but my son (in-law) on Sunday said that it probably wasn't "me and my modem" but my ISP (he works IT for a good sized Midwest city, and I tend to listen to him on 'puter matters)...maybe my re-boot just coincided with the ISP clear up, but at this stage, it doesn't matter now...

...hey, guys...don't you also have to have all 50 Calcified Fragments to obtain the Touch of Malice? ...I thought that was also one of the requirements...congratulations to Panda by the way...I've seen this Raid (on Twitch) take well in excess of an hour to run...what kind of time frames have you folks been completing it in and how many times have you all run it now? ...curious minds want to know... ;0)

Well the group we played most with got a good vibe going and we can do it in 90 minutes or less. With new folks just because it takes a while to figure out the jumps and strategy can take a bit longer like 3 hours to do it all. Longer if it decides to be a pain

As for the Malice you need 45 to get it out of 50.

Yep .. what those guys said. If I can help, fill out a team or whatever, i would also be happy to join up.

Some are speculating 50 fragments will get you a new quest for another exotic weapon. The last 3 fragments will be obtained from the 'challenge mode' of the raid. Sounds intriguing ...

I'm always willing to help out out prior raids as well (I know more about those) for anyone wanting to beat Atheon or Crota.  Lately, I've been on Monday nights around 7:00 or 7:30 PST and sometimes Wednesdays and/or Saturdays around the same time.  It's hard to predict my weekends as my family does things kind of spontaneously, but I'd be willing to even go through it (or attempt it) with a whole fireteam of Oryx virgins.
Having played many games with everyone in this thread, no one should shy away from joining up with anyone in OAD... the only thing we're really serious about is chronic health conditions.

I just want to give a big thanks to the guys that took me through the raid my first time. All were patient while I jumped and died over and over. 
it really is doable. Still working on my lar two fragments, CoO is a pain sometimes.
I am open for more runs, still have two characters to get through.

We have been rocking several people through. If anyone still needs to do it let us know and we will try to set it up. Just let us know when you can play for about 3 hours or so.
