SIP’s Official Destiny Clan is now active

I announced a week and a half ago that we were using a new group as SIP’s clan for Destiny because activation of clan features for a private group is a founder-only privilege. Now that Mahdi has made a triumphant return to SIP, our original group/old home is now our official Destiny clan.

If you are already a member of SIP on, all you need to do is set it as your Xbox and/or PlayStation clan. If you’re not yet a member, you can join today! (Admin approval of membership is not required) If you were a member of the interim clan, please switch over to the official clan as soon as possible. Also, please tell clanmates who might not check in online about this news. Clan features on the interim clan will be disabled in the near future.

Lastly, we have members gearing up their Guardians so they can figure out strategies for the Vault of Glass raid and ultimately help others complete the raid in true SIP fashion. Stay tuned for more details on the possibility of a new achievement team for this activity.

Mark of the Unbroken: 4 Years of Weekly Challenges

Yesterday marks the four-year anniversary of Halo: Reach’s release date and every year has contained 52 weekly challenges to complete for credits. You may remember our own Pokenut/Stig Assassin literally taking the “One Down, 52 to Go” achievement name to heart in the first year, and continued on to repeat the feat in the second and third year since Reach’s release date. Last week, he completed his 208th weekly challenge in as many weeks and carrying on an unbroken streak of four years’ worth of weekly challenges. Now Holmes, THAT’S dedication. Although most of the weekly challenges are recurring and no longer difficult to complete from a skill perspective, just having completed all of them without missing a single one puts Stig in a very select group of gamers who have ever played Halo: Reach; only three people in the world (as far as we know) belong to this group.

Please join me in recognizing and congratulating Stig Assassin on completing yet another full year of weekly challenges in Halo: Reach!
