SIP celebrates its 7th birthday today!

SIP_7year

Today, the Spartan I Project celebrates the seventh anniversary of its founding on Bungie.net, and seven years of making friends, blowing stuff up, and unlocking achievements.

It only takes a few button presses to start an online community, but it takes the combined effort of all of its members to keep it going strong. Whether you’re a member of one of our achievement teams, a spam-a-holic, or a new member looking to join our Destiny clan, every single member has contributed to the continuing success of SIP. To everyone, thank you for your dedication to this community.

As part of the celebration, Shoutbox access is being temporarily extended to all members. In addition, the front page is getting a graphical overhaul. If you like what you see, let us know! If you find something that needs to be fixed or have a suggestion as to how to make it better, be sure to tell us that as well.

Three ODST achievement teams join forces to form The Helljumpers

The upcoming release of Halo 3: ODST for Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One has the members of our ODST achievement teams excited to revisit the streets of New Mombasa. To improve the ability of team members to set up runs, we will be consolidating the Brigade Team, Highwaymen, and Team Punishment into one single team, The Helljumpers. The team will support all achievements previously supported by the three individual teams (200k Firefight scoring, Vidmaster Challenge: Deja Vu, and Vidmaster Challenge: Endure) on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and will be under the leadership of Reaper and aDrunkBaconGod. If you need to unlock these achievements, head over to the Helljumpers’ board and request help from the team in the appropriate thread.

The team is also looking for new team members willing to help with these achievements. If you would like to volunteer your time to help members of SIP get achievements, please message either of the team captains.
