  1. April 2018 OTM nominations (Closing April 30)

    Division Leader Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSIfiremomma7 (Division Leader - DL) Link to forums Account: @KSIfiremomma7 Reasoning: After working with DL for the past few months as their director, the one thing that became immediately apparent was just how short of a hand momma has been dealt time and time again. From abusive leadership, to severely undertrained officers, fluff counts the highest Ive ever seen, and just all around in activity, it was safe to say that momma was dealing with a titanic situation. Yet despite all of this, she not only took this as a learning experience, but was able to grow from it and has worked hard enough to bring an entire division back from the brink with constant effort and unwavering leadership. She is highly revered by her members due to her willingness to listen, her immediate reaction to every situation that requires her attention, and most importantly, the compassion and kindness she passes along to all of her members which has made her not only a leader, but a friend. Although sometimes over emotional (snowflake), momma has proven that she has an adept leader and one who gets better when the pressure starts building, not one who folds. She absolutely deserves Div leader of the month. Co-Division Leader: Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI Gruntier 7 (Co-Division Leader - DM) Link to forums Account: @KSI Gruntier 7 Reasoning: After having the privilege of working with Eli as both part of my Divisional 7 staff and later as his director, It is truly incredible to see the progress hes made in both personal and leadership qualities. Although quiet at first, Gruntier has always had an extremely level head in any situation and a rather calming demeanor that naturally puts those around him at ease regardless of the situation. Hes not easily shaken and always stands firm to his beliefs yet in situations of conflict, is never bias or to swift to cast judgement. He is always going above and beyond when it comes to his responsibilities to his divisions and is the first to volunteer himself and his time when something needs to be done. He has become an excellent leader and is someone with a very bright future ahead of him in terms of leadership potential. Founder: Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI Prophecy v7 (Founder - DL) Link to forums Account: @KSI PROPHECY v7 Reasoning: When thinking of someone to nominate for founder, no one comes to mind more than Prophecy. With so many holes in the DL staff, Prophecy has bent over backwards in order to give his all to every squad or position that needs him. His work in Ares DL has absolutely saved that squad between playing with their members, retraining the officer staff, and helping to solve issues or meet needs that come up. He is always the first responder when there's an a problem or a member needs help and his constant activity has been a savior to the division. Prophecy is never one to have idle hands and is always pushing himself and others around him to be better and do more. Co-Founder: Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI Blood 7 (Founder - DM) Link to forums Account: @KSI Blood 7 Reasoning: The most outstanding trait about Blood that almost anyone who knows him could tell you, is his loyalty to his friends and his people. In this case, Bloods loyalty and 110% commitment to every member of DM and anything they need to thrive is truly something I wish was replicated more often. There isnt a time of the day where Blood isn't in the know or has his ear to the ground with the members to find out what else can be improved and done better. He has done a lot of working in improving himself as a leader and it shows by the amount of respect hes gained in DM. Definitely one to watch in the future. General: Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI SourPeaches Link to forums Account: @KSI SourPeaches Reasoning: Peaches has been an absolute force to be reckoned with in DL and has made her squad the cornerstone of her division. She has gone above and beyond in everything she does in terms of squad leadership and her duties as a general. She took a group of members that was a collection of remnants from two failing squads (about 30 members) and have turned it into a thriving squad with 60 plus members and higher activity levels than they've seen in the past 3 months. She is constantly brainstorming new ideas to drive recruitment, promoting her members to get involved on the forums, and trying to build relations with every squad in her division. She has proven herself to be an adept general and hopefully will go very far in her division. Forum Staff (Mod): Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI Badkitty 7 (Division Leader - DM) Link to forums Account: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasoning: I really don't know someone (besides best friend RiiOt) that deserves this award more than the Kitty. Cat spends about 80% of every single day on the forums reading posts, watching new topics, or completing the hundred tasks that she fulfills while on the site. From all the duties and responsibilities of a Senior mod, to also largely participating in the join/re join section in the quickest, most efficient ways possible, I don't think there's anything on the forums that she doesn't have a hand in or do well. On top of this she has gone out of her way to train me in everything I needed to know becoming a baby mod (multiple times at that since I was quite the slow learner) and is always willing to do the same for others. Im pretty sure she wouldn't be able to function without the forums and I mean that with all sincerity.

If at any point you have an issue, please talk it through with the Performance Ops staff. We are humans and realize that not everyone takes to changes like these immediately. Conversations are better than arguments. -In the next few months PO will also be rolling out new workshops (forums and recruiting), training and recruiting guides, a new KSI Welcoming Committee and much more! -Finally, all Generals and up please add KSI Gandhi 7.

  8. Overview: This thread is specifically designed to present an accurate representation off post season play-offs for those teams currently participating in this years Call of Duty: WWII Head Hunters season. In this thread you will find: The rules and regulations set forth specifically for all play off matches An updated list of match ups and map selections for those teams who progress in the tournament Any additional disclaimers, notifications, or disqualifications dictated by HH Moderator: KSI Gambit 7 If there are any questions, comments, or issues, these are to be reported directly to KSI Gambit 7 through the following means of communication: Discord: Gambino#5224 Kik: xxGambitIXV Xbox: KSI Gambit 7 Rules & Regulations: The rules and regulations for play-offs are identical to those of the regular season (listed in the Rules and Regulations thread in the Head Hunters sub forum) except with the following additions: All play off games up until the final match will be played as a best 2/3 style. The final match however will be a best 3/5 series. All games will be played the same day on the same map (i.e. no playing game 1/3 today and game 2/3 tomorrow etc.) The team with the HIGHEST SEAT will decide which side they would like for game 1 (Axis or Allies) The team with the LOWEST SEAT will decide which side they would like for game 2 (Axis or Allies) In the event of a game 3, the team with the LOWEST SEAT will decide which side they will play on. All games will be played on a 5v5 basis, this is MANDATORY. If a team only has 4 members, they are at the mercy of the team with 5 members. IF that team agrees to play 4v5 then the game will be permitted. IF the team declines, the team with 4 members will be disqualified. All games are to be played within 4 days of the originally posted date. No exceptions. Example: If matchups are announced to start Tuesday the 12th but one team needs to reschedule in order to have 5 members, they have until the 16th to reschedule or the team will automatically forfeit. In the case of a needed reschedule, BOTH TEAM MANAGERS must agree to the newly rescheduled date of the match. There will be no complaints of L-A-G or complaining about HOST. If teams can not agree to which side can host the game, ahead of time, a Neutral Host (NH) is to be requested per KSI Gambit 7 to host the match. If you know that your members struggle with connection and foresee this being an issue, it is the teams responsible to reach out for a neutral host, there will be no after the fact complaints accepted. Round 1 Schedule, Matches, Map: - Matches are set to start this Friday, April 6th 2018 - Map Selection: London Docks Round 1 Matches: Eternal Souls (2) V. Final Strike (8) (WINNER ES) Wayward Desolators (3) V. Dark Legions (9) (WINNER WD) Evolution (4) V. Forced Induction (6) (WINNER DW) Demonic Mayhem (5) V. Primal Predators (7) (WINNER DM) Crimson Knights (1): First Round Bye
  9. KSI BadKitty 7 OS Lvl 1

    Of course I'll witness for this: I have said this many times before and I will start by saying this again. When nominating Cat for any award there are two things that remain constant. First and foremost, there is not an award designed by this community yet that she does not deserve nor is there one that can truly thank her for the time, dedication, and energy that she has invested into this community. Secondly, when nominating Cat, it is 3x easier to compile a list of things she hasn’t done than a list of things she has done and is involved in and if that doesn’t say enough about her character, I don’t really know what does. When I first met Kitty she was KSI KillrKitty who had just recently changed her gamertag (not without much convincing) and had no aspirations whatsoever of attaining rank or joining departments in KSI. Beyond this, we did not get along very well at all and the word hate was actually used on her side of things very often (lol). Fast forward to now, I think one of the most cherished memories I will have after leaving this community and one of the things that Im most thankful for now, is being able to witness the absolute growth and development of both her KSI career and as a person. Having worked with Cat for over 1 year now in both the clan ops side (running DM and eventually becoming her Director) and web ops (Fellow PO officers, Forum Moderators, and Head/Co-Head of T&E) I can personally vouch for the fact that there isn’t a single aspect of anything she does that she does not pour her 110% into. I would bet my career in saying that there is not another leader in this community of her rank or below that stay up later, spend more time, or devote more of themselves to their work in this community. I have always said that what I’m most thankful for in KSI is all of the benefits we as members receive on a daily basis however with Shanda, I think it may actually be the opposite. Through her work in departments (AAP, Perfomance Operations, Senior Moderator, Tournaments & Events) and in Clan Ops (taking over DM with 220 members on the G14 2 months ago who now sit at 305 applying for Flagship status) , she has proven time and time again that she IS a benefit to the community in itself and myself, those who witness for her here, and a plethora of other members from ranks Private all the way to the board, are extremely grateful for what she has done and the lives and careers she’s changed in the process. I’m sure many people other than myself can say the same in saying that this award is just a small way of saying thank you to Kitty for all she has done. I view her as a partner, a best friend, a pirate queen and although she may be of lower rank, most certainly a mentor and outstanding leader. She truly deserves the award of outstanding service level 1 plus about 19 more levels. Mickey Mousin it bud. XD. - Gambit

Please make sure we include all members equally or maybe find a new game to play with others. 7 Staff Tension and Conflict: - If you have an issue with fellow members of any officer rank especially in divisional leadership (7 staff and above), these conflicts need to be handled in a mature and private setting. - There is no reason that two leaders in the same division cant settle an issue and work together if needed like adults. - IF mediation is needed: Reach out to your Director for help so they can sit in and help both parties reach a happy medium.

Venting down causes issues and discrepancies. Lower ranking members do not need to know the issues we struggle through as leaders, especially with each other. Problems should be vented about in the proper atmosphere where they can be handled and solved. Workshops: - Let's make sure workshops (SGTS, recruiting, officers etc) are being hosted weekly. - Make them fun and engaging for the members (Hide and Seek, Michael Myers, etc with a Q&A) - Divisional 7 staff should be making sure these are happening. Knowledge is the key to success! G14's & Clubs: - It is crucial for generals to make sure that their squad tags/ clubs match up with G14's (This includes EXACT proper spelling of gamertags) - Make sure that as you are promoting recruits or removing fluff, these people are also removed from the recruit club if promoting or removed from the squad tag if fluffing. - 7's need to be holding your Generals accountable but not touching anyone's G14 for them - IMPORTANT: please make sure that the privacy settings for squad tags is correct as well. Lets keep our members safe. Creating Schedules and Activity Awareness: - Officers of every squad should create a weekly schedule for their members to access with dates and times of gamenights, workshops, or meeting times. This organization will boost participation and attendance! - Sending out a message in one place about a gamenight or squad event isn't enough! Utilize the forums, discord, and squad tag/ clubs in order to get the message out to as many people as possible. - Follow through with events, if you schedule a workshop or gamenight, make sure to execute it or have a plan B. Divisional Transfer: - As of now, the new time period for divisional transfers is 3 days barring any unforeseen circumstances - This is to make the process easier so members can find a place that better suits them but is NOT to be abused

  15. Headhunters

    Hello Cable, My name is KSI Gambit 7 and Ill be the one responding to this as it was myself, not KSI Badkitty 7, who is solely in charge of running this years Headhunters season and also came up with all of the rules that seem to be an issue for you and your team. First of all, it has come to my attention several times (as I explained to both of your team managers who also brought up these exact same comments) that the idea of this headhunters season and the idea of KSI being a gaming community has been severely neglected. I would like to remind you, as stated to them, that KSI is a gaming community in which every event hosted tries to incorporate participation from as many divisions as possible and allow their members to compete rather than be turned away due to being short one or two members. This being said, although Call of duty is a "very popular franchise" Id like to remind you that there are a plethora of other very popular franchises which other divisions have been founded on and primarily thrive because of (i.e. Halo and Destiny). These should be facts to take into consideration before blatantly criticizing a division on their ability to assemble a team based on ones self perception. In regards to your statement on this being a competitive season, its only competitive if you have teams to play against correct? Would your team not benefit from having more teams to play against? There is a difference between playing a 7 for necessity or simply because you want to. This tournament was designed for the members to be able to play, have fun, and represent their divisions as those 7s were allowed to in the past before they became 7s. I have spoken with the teams that employ 7s during matches, and they dont even want to play. They do it simply so that the few members they have that actually want to participate can play and not be held back, not because they themselves have the burning desire to do so. I will not criticize a team for this as that's what being a leader in this community means. Doing whats best for your people. Addressing the schedule, match type/ round number, and uniform there are several points to discuss. When creating a schedule with an odd number of teams that needs to fit an allotted time period without coinciding or conflicting with other KSI events, it gets a bit difficult to assure that every team gets to play every single map as much as they like and still hit the number of games needed. As this is your first headhunters season and you did not personally participate in the seasons of the past which had no schedule, no guidelines as to who to talk to or get with to schedule games, and games could be rescheduled within a few months rather than a couple days, id say that the very few reschedules this time around has been quite fortunate. People have jobs, school, and work all of xbox which can create very hard situations when it comes to match time. To assume that people are just aren't using their reserves or haven't checked with them as well before rescheduling is as stated, an assumption not fact, and we all know how that saying goes. I understand your concern of wanting to do a best two out of three against teams to be able to re-adjust and such, but look at any major league sport. When a team loses they aren't given a chance to say best two out of three. Instead, they look forward to playing that team again, later in the schedule and using the changes and tactics they've come up with then. Finally, asking teams to be in uniform for a match serves literally no purpose. Why would it matter to be able to see the seat of who you killed in game besides for ones own personal satisfaction. If you would like to have your team do that for some reason, then you are welcome to by all means. Ultimately, I hope you have enjoyed this years Head Hunters season and all of the perks along with it such as the schedule and roster availability, personal stat tracker, streamed games, new awards, all-star game, and play off tournament. Each season seems to get better and fine tuned so I hope the next one might be better for you. Sincerely, Gambit
