Happy Friday, Guardians! How are you all enjoying these weekly Community Focus features? We have such a fun time meeting new Guardians and showcasing their communities and kindness, so please continue to suggest/tag your favorite humans!  
This week, we have RoboticAdi, a rad human from a faraway land, and we are so excited to get started!  
Hello! First up, who are you, where are you from, and what got you into gaming and content creation?  
Hullo! I'm RoboticAdi, but most people call me Adi, I'm a Partnered streamer on Twitch and I'm from the northern part of Scotland! I've been gaming for a long time, the first console I owned was a PS1, but my earliest memories of gaming was on the original Xbox with my uncle and we played a lot of Halo. 

I got into content creation just before my daughter turned two in 2018. I had watched a fair amount of Twitch and at the time, I suffered postnatal depression and found it extremely difficult to socialise outside my home. I had made a few friends through Destiny on Xbox and streaming had been suggested to me so I decided to go for it!  

Isn’t it magical how meeting humans in a game like Destiny is sometimes so much easier than in person? How did you find Destiny and when did you start playing?   
I actually found Destiny completely by accident! I was given Destiny: The Collection, which had all previous DLCs included, and popped it in my Xbox, started playing, and haven't stopped since! I met a couple of people in Prison of Elders who introduced me to their friend circle and it's thanks to them I experienced my first raid, Kings Fall, which for me was mind-blowing.  

Oh, that’s so fun! Kings Fall was also the first raid I was able to complete! So, what type of content do you like to focus on?   
I primarily focus on helping members of the community with endgame PvE content, although there is a running joke in my community that I'm secretly a PvP sweat. I love helping folk through activities like raids and Grandmasters. I tend to almost overexplain in raids, basically to give the fireteam the tools to go in comfortably the next time they decide to raid, whether it be with me or not! 

I mean, overexplaining raids to help others learn seems like a solid plan to me! So, you know I have to ask, what is your main character and favourite loadout? 
When I started playing Destiny, I was a Titan main but when Destiny 2 came out, I became a Hunter main through and through! Void 3.0 has made it fantastic to play. My favourite loadout right now is my headstone Krait, Glaive, and the trusty Gjally. It's been great to mow through ads with! 

I mean, I knew what your answer was going to be, but I was still hoping Warlock would shine through. 😊  
What kind of vibe does your channel maintain?   
My channel has a very laidback feeling, with a lot of dad jokes. I always say I want to make it feel like home. The people in my community are utterly phenomenal and I am very lucky to have them in my corner of Twitch. I joke with them a lot that it may be my channel, but a lot of people come back because of how warm and welcoming my community (The Toolbox) is. I cannot thank them enough! Although they really like to make fun of me when I screw up. (Think a Gjally rocket into an Anti-Barrier shield...) 

Dad jokes are the best jokes. And where can people find you? 
You can find me Monday to Friday on Twitch at 10 AM BST where we help people run through activities with my buddy Panda! I'm on Twitter a fair amount, and I also have a YouTube channel and a Tiktok where we post short clips of the stream!  

Anything else you want to add?    

I want to say thank you to all those who have had a hand in making the Destiny universe what it is. You all have made such a wonderful game and because of that, I've met some lifelong friends. You should be really proud.  

A big shout-out to my community, The Toolbox. They have honestly changed my life and I have no idea what I would be doing if it wasn't for them. To my mods, I appreciate you guys so much, thank you for all you do.  

I would be remiss to not mention my partner Alanah, who continuously lifts me up and believes in me, even when I don't believe in myself as much. She's one in a trillion.  

Thank you for allowing me to be a Bungie Community Focus! ❤  

Thank you so much for chatting with me Adi! If you missed last week’s Community Focus with Liana and Grant Stoner please go check that out now. Thank you again for all the comments, tags, and kind words for our Community Focus features. Have a magical weekend Guardians!
