    KSI AWOL got a reaction from KSI MeShell 7 in Of The Years 2018! - Nominations (Closing 12/16)   
    Category:  Division Leader
    Gamertag:  KSI Gruntier 7
    Forums Account Link / @KSI Gruntier 7  
    Reasons they deserve this award –  “Grunt” or “Eli” as I know him deserves this award because he runs one, if not the best Division in KSI.  Grunt, like those below him in Demonic Mayhem’s (DM) Seven staff, is a gamer at his core.  I see him online nearly every night, and if he’s not in a staff meeting, he’s out there gaming with members of his division.  He actively engages members and officers alike, and his presence is greatly appreciated.  Grunt makes himself visible and available to members and officers alike.
    Grunt is one of only a handful of people that I know in KSI (some are on this very list of nominees) who truly embraces what it means to maintain oneself in a professional manner during KSI-related parties, chats, etc.  I have never heard Grunt speak a single expletive, and no matter how heated the situation may seem, Grunt’s demeanor doesn’t change; he’s always cool, calm, and collected.
    Finally, Grunt is a man of action; he is proactive not reactive.  If there is something wrong, I’ve seen him take swift action in order to remedy potentially disastrous situations from developing.  From my observation and experience, Grunt’s leadership style shows no bias, no favoritism, and doesn’t allow any “politics” to affect his decision making when it comes to Demonic Mayhem. 
    Thanks, Grunt for all your hard work and dedication to KSI and to Demonic Mayhem.

    Reasons they deserve this award – “Fluff” or “Kyle” as I know him deserves this award because he’s left a permanent positive imprint on Demonic Mayhem and possibly KSI as a whole.  Kyle is vested in KSI and it shows!
    Not only is Kyle a hardcore gamer (he games with everyone, and frequently streams on Mixer for us to enjoy), he is our resident IT guy, maintains Demonic Mayhem Radio on YouTube, maintains a widely-used KSI information server for DM’s officers/potential officers, and like KSI Gruntier 7, he ensures he is available to both members and officers alike (and he has a lot on his plate, currently as a founder, but for many months this year he wore the acting Co-Founder hat as well).  I know that I can bounce an idea, etc. off Kyle using Xbox Live or Discord, and he’ll get back to me with an honest answer.   
    Last, this year Kyle was a charter inductee into Demonic Mayhem’s Hall of Fame (along with receiving an Outstanding Service Award).  In my humble opinion, this in and of itself is enough for Kyle to receive this Of the Year award. 
    Thanks, Kyle for all your hard work and dedication this year.  You are a stand-out amongst stand-outs, and I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me personally and for Demonic Mayhem.

    Reasons they deserve this award – “Shell” or “Michelle” as I know her deserves this award because through her positivity and engagement of members/officers across the division, she is an absolute asset to our Division (no matter what rank she holds).  Her positive attitude and likeability are not limited to Clan-Ops but spread into her Department-Ops activities as well.  Specifically, I appreciate and enjoy her KSILive streams on Twitch.    
    As a General, I’ve seen her on Xbox nearly every single day engaging not only the members of her own squad, but constantly (and positively) engaging other members in parties, DM’s Discord server, and on the forums.  It’s my observation that Shell’s engaging members and other officers alike in a positive manner has had nothing but a positive impact on the entire division.  Shell isn’t afraid to get out there and play any game and just do what we’re all supposed to be doing.  Having fun!  I believe Shell truly understands what it means to belong to a gaming community.
    Finally, Shell isn’t afraid to speak up when something is wrong, nor does she hesitate to ask questions if she doesn’t know the answer.  I’ve seen her quietly redirect public conversations in DM’s Discord server to parties or direct messages.  Shell is another example of someone I’ve observed to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to dealing with any manner of KSI-related issues. 
    If one is aspiring to become a solid officer in KSI, Shell is a shining example. 
    Shell, thank you for setting a high bar for members and officers alike.

    Gamertag:  KSI EzeD24
    Forums Account Link / @EzeD24
    Reasons they deserve this award – Recently promoted to a Captain position, and in spite of a hectic IRL schedule, “Eze” as I know him deserves this award for the sheer perseverance and resilience, he’s shown this year.  I would describe Eze as a selfless officer who puts the needs of the squad and its members above his own. 
    Like those I’ve nominated above Eze is another gamer to the core, and being an officer alongside me in Discord Squad, I know I can count on him.  On at least two occasions, I’ve witnessed Eze pick up multiple weekly game nights knowing that his IRL schedule is brutal.  Eze knew Discord Squad needed his help, and he’s been there through thick and thin.  Eze is an effective communicator and is absolutely not afraid to speak up if he believes something is amiss.  Like KSI Gruntier 7 above, I view Eze as one of those who speak softly and carry a big stick (this is a good thing).
    To me, it’s not about how much you can achieve in one year’s time, but how much effort you put forth regardless of the outcome.  With Eze, I’ve seen effort at the highest possible level, and I’m truly appreciative of his time and assistance.    
    Thanks, Eze for all of your hard work, patience, and endurance this past year.  I’m truly looking forward to 2019 and working closely with you in building a solid new squad!

    Reasons they deserve this award – (Using my best Tony Soprano impression) “This guy!” 
    “Whiskey” or “Drew” a I know him deserves this award because although he departed KSI for a short while, he came back because he realized that there was room for improvement in Demonic Mayhem and more specifically, Discord Squad.  He returned to contribute his time and leadership skills, with a steadfast determination to make things better and stronger.  He didn’t return to put a spotlight on himself, but rather to shine a bright light on both divisional and squad-based problem solving. 
    I sincerely appreciate Whiskey’s ability to speak and engage large groups of people, all the while knowing his audience.  He is absolutely not afraid to speak up if he believes there is an issue, and his no-nonsense approach to day-to-day problem solving is absolutely refreshing.  Finally, I really appreciate Whiskey's sense of humor.  Whiskey is not afraid to add some levity to difficult situations, and it's my opinion that Whiskey's leadership style of no-nonsense with some humor added in will take him as far as he wishes to go in this organization.  
    Whiskey, welcome back to KSI and Demonic Mayhem.  I’m truly glad your back and putting your leadership skills at the forefront of your return.  Thanks for all your hard work thus far, and I’m absolutely looking forward to working with you in 2019 as we build a new squad!  Cheers!

    Reasons they deserve this award – “Jester” as I know him deserves this award for his high activity level, participation, and good attitude in general as it relates to all KSI activities.  Barring any IRL circumstances, Jester is always at squad meetings, game nights, and any other activities offered at the squad level.  Jester proudly wears the KSI prefix, and by and through his actions, it shows.  Jester is communicative, has a good sense of humor, and is an excellent all-around gamer.  He actively engages other members of DM’s Discord squad and has a unique and not-easily-forgettable laugh befitting of his gamertag.
    Like those nominated above and below, I know that Jester understands what it means to be part of a gaming community.    
    Thanks, Jester for being an asset to KSI, Demonic Mayhem, and Discord Squad.

    Forums Account Link / @KSI RiiOT 7
    Reasons they deserve this award – “RiiOT” or “Super Sergeant Ultra First Class RiiOT” as I know him deserves this award because his department is brutally efficient.  Plain and simple. 
    RiiOT has shown through his leadership of the AAP Department that things get done and done properly.  From the team he leads in AAP, to the new Meta Awards, to everyday interaction with RiiOT, the man gets things done!  From my observation and personal experience, RiiOT’s AAP Department process awards properly and without delay (many times same-day turnaround for award nominations, which is phenomenal).  In the rare case an issue arises concerning anything AAP, RiiOT is there to make things right.   
    I had the pleasure of witnessing for RiiOT’s Gold Outstanding Service Award this year (an award that speaks for itself and one that I respectfully request be taken into consideration with this nomination), and it was then I learned that RiiOT had earned something I didn’t realize was possible in KSI:  Seven status in all three areas of KSI:  Clan-Ops, Department-Ops, and Web-Ops.  To me and to this day, RiiOT continues to set the gold standard for what KSI is/should be.  
    RiiOT remains a pillar of KSI by and through his actions while wearing many hats.
    Thanks, RiiOT for ALL you do for KSI, especially here, as it applies to the Awards and Achievements Department you run with great care.  Cheers!

    Reason they deserve this award:
    Grunt is a people person. Everyone here knows you can go to Grunt for anything whether it’s gaming or assistance in a serious matter. He’s truly a great leader and is exactly the kind of leader DM needs. He is kind patient but can be stern when needed. He’s a great mentor and I’m happy to have been able to serve under him. He always tries to go above and beyond for everyone he can and that’s been true this entire past year. The best example I can give (if this doesn’t explain it I don’t know what will), he was upset when he was unable to attend a Div meeting, (because he’d never missed one!). I went in his place and the fact that he was upset about missing it is saying something (you who’ve attended know what I mean). He honestly/truly deserves this award/has more than earned it.

    Reasons they deserve this award:
    The reason why Bryan deserves this award is the same reason I think that he should be the next Co-Founder. He’s taken a lot on in his real life this past year and still been an active and supportive leader to his members/officers. The times he has had to step away/take a break he’s not once not worried about how things were going on with his squad (I know because he wouldn’t leave my d.m.’s alone). He might try to act like the tough guy (at times, meaning to act like things don’t bother him) but he deeply cares about this community and his members and their overall happiness. He’s honestly grown more in this last 2 years, as a person than anyone I know. He use to be very hot headed and Roostery and wasn’t the best at communicating and overall/honestly put a pain in my a**. Now he is in my opinion one of the best leaders we have. He tries to see things from all different perspectives (now fully understands the way I see things in that you have to look at everything you do here as “cause and effect” because we are all “bodies in motion”). He’s constantly questioning things and looking out for what’s best for his member’s. He took over Discord from me and it has had it’s up’s and downs but I think given the circumstances I couldn’t have left a better person in charge. He’s sponsored gamer tag changes, help me get members dlc’s they couldn’t afford, and many many more things. He has in the past year drastically changed his style as Gen and tried to be the Gen his officers needed him to be and from my perspective he did. I think he still has some improvements to do (as we all do) in some areas but honestly, he’s my pick for Gen of the year.

    Reason they deserve this award:
    With Awol’s goal to learn everything KSI I can honestly say I can’t wait to see him as a Gen. He’s sponsored a few gamer tag changes (one example KSI MooTew’s). He’s always willing to go out of his way to help member’s do thing’s in games, even when he has thing’s he needs to do. He’s been nominated multiple times throughout this year and for good reason. He’s in my opinion a great member and a great officer. I feel he still has things he needs to work on but overall, he like The Offspring song “You’re going to go far kid” (is a chart topper, for those unaware).

    Reason they deserve this award:
    Jonathan is one of those people who you meet and you feel like you’ve known for a while. While he has since stepped down as an officer. I can honestly say during this past year helping teach him the ins/outs was probably one of the best experience’s I’ve had in quite a while. He’s a great young man who is also trying to go into the military and he has shown to me he can be a great leader. He’s a fast learner and always willing to help whoever he can (even sometimes at 5am lol). He showed me he was willing to go above and beyond & I wish he could have stayed an officer longer but I as we all should know IRL comes first and you have to do what you have to do. I wish him the best and thank him for his service to us as a member/officer and potentially as a member of the United States Military.

    Reasons they deserve this award:
    There's not much that I can say about gambit that hasn't already been said, except that he is an incredible leader in this community. Gambit isn't afraid to stand up for what's right and confront those who try to belittle others or make them feel like they aren't good enough. When I first joined KSI, gambit became one of my bestest friend very quickly. He mentored me and taught me what it takes to be a great leader and what sacrifices one must make in order to make this community a better place. He is without a doubt one of the hardest working members in here and does everything he can to ensure that things run smoothly. I have learned so much from him in my time here, but the most important thing that I have learned from him is that sometimes you just have to kick back and relax and just have fun, the rest will work itself out. I cannot think of anybody who is more deserving of this award and he is only getting started.

    Reasons they deserve this award:
    My biggest motivation in this community has always been this lovely girl right here. Kitty embodies what it's like to be a dedicated member of this community. She never hesitates, never shy's away from a fight, and will put you in your place if she needs to. It's been almost 2 years since I joined and she has been by my side every step of the way. When I look at kitty, I think of what an amazing leader she is and a shining example of what I hope to become. She is the most laid back, most awesome person you will ever meet. But, at the same time, you don't want to mess with her. She handles problems with such a calm mind and finds the best solution to every situation possible. There's not a single person in this community who is like her and everybody looks up to her. DM thrived when kitty was it's director and I hope that someday I can fill in those shoes. You deserve this more than anyone.

    Reasons they deserve this:
    Grunt has become the rock on which DM leans on. If you ever have a question, grunt has an answer. If you ever falter or doubt yourself, he will reassure you that everything will be okay and gives you the confidence you need in order to move forward. Grunt is one of the best people I know and one of the coolest. But, when it's time to get serious, he doesn't fool around. He crushes problems when they arise and makes sure that everybody is satisfied and happy with the results. He sticks his neck out for his members and goes to bat for them without a second thought. Few are like him and even fewer posses the qualities that he has. It takes a lot to become a great leader and grunt has done just that. DM is a great division and it's because of him that we continue to grow and become closer. His dedication and determination are second to none and he isn't afraid to tell you what he thinks or to call you out when you mess up. He will work with you and make you the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Grunts potential is great and I can't wait to see what comes next for him.

    Kyle has been through everything with me and we have climbed up the ranks together. His work ethic is unbelievable and matched by no one. If you have a problem, you can count on Kyle to have a solution. You can always find him gaming with members and making everyone feel welcomed. He does everything he can to help people and is always there when you need him the most. Nobody cares more about this community then he does and he always gives 110% on everything no matter what it is. He knows what is right and what is wrong and he always let's everybody know that. His passion and determination are incredible and his skills as a leader are matched by none. He inspires me to be better every single day and deserves this award without a doubt. I cannot wait to see what you do in this community.

    Fats has been an outstanding Gen right from the get go. He filled in the big shoes and got straight to work right away. He knows what it takes to not only be a leader, but be somebody who people can look up to and go to in an hour of need. He isn't afraid to tackle problems when they rise up and he makes sure all of his members are taken care of and happy. He embodies what KSI stands for, knowledge, strength, and integrity. He is one of the best Generals I know and everyone from his squad would say the same thing. I'm excited to see what kind of things he does for this community in the future.

    Reason they deserve this:
    To put this plain and simple, AWOL is the best Captain that anybody can ask for. He stretches himself thin with everything he tries to do for the squad. From keeping members satisfied, to making sure they are welcomed and appreciated it. He goes above and beyond for almost everybody and isn't afraid to let you know what he thinks of any situation. He stands his ground and tries to find a solution for every problem. If he doesn't have an answer, he will go out of his way to make sure that you get the correct information. I would not be able to run Discord as efficiently without the help of AWOL. Even though we have our differences and don't see eye to eye a lot, he always had my back on everything. I can't think of anybody more deserving and I know he will make a fantastic Gen when the time comes.

    Gamertag:  KSI Gruntier 7
    Forums Account Link / @KSI Gruntier 7  
    Reasons they deserve this award –  “Grunt” or “Eli” as I know him deserves this award because he runs one, if not the best Division in KSI.  Grunt, like those below him in Demonic Mayhem’s (DM) Seven staff, is a gamer at his core.  I see him online nearly every night, and if he’s not in a staff meeting, he’s out there gaming with members of his division.  He actively engages members and officers alike, and his presence is greatly appreciated.  Grunt makes himself visible and available to members and officers alike.
    Grunt is one of only a handful of people that I know in KSI (some are on this very list of nominees) who truly embraces what it means to maintain oneself in a professional manner during KSI-related parties, chats, etc.  I have never heard Grunt speak a single expletive, and no matter how heated the situation may seem, Grunt’s demeanor doesn’t change; he’s always cool, calm, and collected.
    Finally, Grunt is a man of action; he is proactive not reactive.  If there is something wrong, I’ve seen him take swift action in order to remedy potentially disastrous situations from developing.  From my observation and experience, Grunt’s leadership style shows no bias, no favoritism, and doesn’t allow any “politics” to affect his decision making when it comes to Demonic Mayhem. 
    Thanks, Grunt for all your hard work and dedication to KSI and to Demonic Mayhem.

    Reasons they deserve this award – “Fluff” or “Kyle” as I know him deserves this award because he’s left a permanent positive imprint on Demonic Mayhem and possibly KSI as a whole.  Kyle is vested in KSI and it shows!
    Not only is Kyle a hardcore gamer (he games with everyone, and frequently streams on Mixer for us to enjoy), he is our resident IT guy, maintains Demonic Mayhem Radio on YouTube, maintains a widely-used KSI information server for DM’s officers/potential officers, and like KSI Gruntier 7, he ensures he is available to both members and officers alike (and he has a lot on his plate, currently as a founder, but for many months this year he wore the acting Co-Founder hat as well).  I know that I can bounce an idea, etc. off Kyle using Xbox Live or Discord, and he’ll get back to me with an honest answer.   
    Last, this year Kyle was a charter inductee into Demonic Mayhem’s Hall of Fame (along with receiving an Outstanding Service Award).  In my humble opinion, this in and of itself is enough for Kyle to receive this Of the Year award. 
    Thanks, Kyle for all your hard work and dedication this year.  You are a stand-out amongst stand-outs, and I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me personally and for Demonic Mayhem.

    Gamertag:  KSI MeShell 7
    Forums Account Link / @KSI MeShell 7
    Reasons they deserve this award – “Shell” or “Michelle” as I know her deserves this award because through her positivity and engagement of members/officers across the division, she is an absolute asset to our Division (no matter what rank she holds).  Her positive attitude and likeability are not limited to Clan-Ops but spread into her Department-Ops activities as well.  Specifically, I appreciate and enjoy her KSILive streams on Twitch.    
    As a General, I’ve seen her on Xbox nearly every single day engaging not only the members of her own squad, but constantly (and positively) engaging other members in parties, DM’s Discord server, and on the forums.  It’s my observation that Shell’s engaging members and other officers alike in a positive manner has had nothing but a positive impact on the entire division.  Shell isn’t afraid to get out there and play any game and just do what we’re all supposed to be doing.  Having fun!  I believe Shell truly understands what it means to belong to a gaming community.
    Finally, Shell isn’t afraid to speak up when something is wrong, nor does she hesitate to ask questions if she doesn’t know the answer.  I’ve seen her quietly redirect public conversations in DM’s Discord server to parties or direct messages.  Shell is another example of someone I’ve observed to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to dealing with any manner of KSI-related issues. 
    If one is aspiring to become a solid officer in KSI, Shell is a shining example. 
    Shell, thank you for setting a high bar for members and officers alike.

    Forums Account Link / @EzeD24
    Reasons they deserve this award – Recently promoted to a Captain position, and in spite of a hectic IRL schedule, “Eze” as I know him deserves this award for the sheer perseverance and resilience, he’s shown this year.  I would describe Eze as a selfless officer who puts the needs of the squad and its members above his own. 
    Like those I’ve nominated above Eze is another gamer to the core, and being an officer alongside me in Discord Squad, I know I can count on him.  On at least two occasions, I’ve witnessed Eze pick up multiple weekly game nights knowing that his IRL schedule is brutal.  Eze knew Discord Squad needed his help, and he’s been there through thick and thin.  Eze is an effective communicator and is absolutely not afraid to speak up if he believes something is amiss.  Like KSI Gruntier 7 above, I view Eze as one of those who speak softly and carry a big stick (this is a good thing).
    To me, it’s not about how much you can achieve in one year’s time, but how much effort you put forth regardless of the outcome.  With Eze, I’ve seen effort at the highest possible level, and I’m truly appreciative of his time and assistance.    
    Thanks, Eze for all of your hard work, patience, and endurance this past year.  I’m truly looking forward to 2019 and working closely with you in building a solid new squad!

    Reasons they deserve this award – (Using my best Tony Soprano impression) “This guy!” 
    “Whiskey” or “Drew” a I know him deserves this award because although he departed KSI for a short while, he came back because he realized that there was room for improvement in Demonic Mayhem and more specifically, Discord Squad.  He returned to contribute his time and leadership skills, with a steadfast determination to make things better and stronger.  He didn’t return to put a spotlight on himself, but rather to shine a bright light on both divisional and squad-based problem solving. 
    I sincerely appreciate Whiskey’s ability to speak and engage large groups of people, all the while knowing his audience.  He is absolutely not afraid to speak up if he believes there is an issue, and his no-nonsense approach to day-to-day problem solving is absolutely refreshing.  Finally, I really appreciate Whiskey's sense of humor.  Whiskey is not afraid to add some levity to difficult situations, and it's my opinion that Whiskey's leadership style of no-nonsense with some humor added in will take him as far as he wishes to go in this organization.  
    Whiskey, welcome back to KSI and Demonic Mayhem.  I’m truly glad your back and putting your leadership skills at the forefront of your return.  Thanks for all your hard work thus far, and I’m absolutely looking forward to working with you in 2019 as we build a new squad!  Cheers!

    Reasons they deserve this award – “Jester” as I know him deserves this award for his high activity level, participation, and good attitude in general as it relates to all KSI activities.  Barring any IRL circumstances, Jester is always at squad meetings, game nights, and any other activities offered at the squad level.  Jester proudly wears the KSI prefix, and by and through his actions, it shows.  Jester is communicative, has a good sense of humor, and is an excellent all-around gamer.  He actively engages other members of DM’s Discord squad and has a unique and not-easily-forgettable laugh befitting of his gamertag.

    Forums Account Link / @KSI RiiOT 7
    Reasons they deserve this award – “RiiOT” or “Super Sergeant Ultra First Class RiiOT” as I know him deserves this award because his department is brutally efficient.  Plain and simple. 
    RiiOT has shown through his leadership of the AAP Department that things get done and done properly.  From the team he leads in AAP, to the new Meta Awards, to everyday interaction with RiiOT, the man gets things done!  From my observation and personal experience, RiiOT’s AAP Department process awards properly and without delay (many times same-day turnaround for award nominations, which is phenomenal).  In the rare case an issue arises concerning anything AAP, RiiOT is there to make things right.   
    I had the pleasure of witnessing for RiiOT’s Gold Outstanding Service Award this year (an award that speaks for itself and one that I respectfully request be taken into consideration with this nomination), and it was then I learned that RiiOT had earned something I didn’t realize was possible in KSI:  Seven status in all three areas of KSI:  Clan-Ops, Department-Ops, and Web-Ops.  To me and to this day, RiiOT continues to set the gold standard for what KSI is/should be.  
    RiiOT remains a pillar of KSI by and through his actions while wearing many hats.
    Thanks, RiiOT for ALL you do for KSI, especially here, as it applies to the Awards and Achievements Department you run with great care.  Cheers!

    Ninja is a captain that I can count on to get stuff done. Despite numerous personal hurdles he has had this year he is still always there for his squad and division. If he can’t be there he communicates and let’s the officer staff of our squad know do we can pick up the slack. If I’m ever unable to make a meeting he is always there to take my place. Basically he’s what you want in a backup.

    Gamertag: KSI Veritas 7
    Forums link: @VeRiiTaS 7

    Reasoning: Rita has always been there for DM and it’s people whenever he's needed. Out of all the senior directors it was a tough choice to choose just one to nominate but recently within the last 6 months or so Rita has stood out more. DM likes to take care of things themselves but in the instances where we did need help Rita was right there either giving advice or taking care of a situation that was a bit over our expertise. Rita is always there when you need him and also likes to just hangout and play games with the members. There have been a situation or two where he got yelled at and didn't deserve it but he calmly diffused the situation’s as any great leader would. In my opinion Rita stands out as the best at his position which really is saying a lot considering his competition.

    Forums link: @KSI TexAngel 7

    Reasoning: Tex has been our director for awhile now and in that time she has helped DM in any way possible. Whether it was through sage wisdom or just being there whenever I have a question or problem come up she is always available. I kind of felt sorry for her when she first became our director because for the 1st month or so every time she would pull me into a party it seemed like it was always bad news. It was something that we still joke about today it wasn't  her fault she was just passing information along. She keeps telling us that we’re stuck with her a while longer but it takes time to get to know one's director and build trust with each other which Tex has done countless times I know that she is there when and if I need her and that she has my back, which helps me have the confidence to do my job.

    Reasoning: Kyle has done a lot for DM over time but I choose to nominate him for Founder of the year because I think that at that rank he has really shined at. When he’s asked to do something it’s usually sure no problem anything to help. He’s helped out on discord more times than I can count the amount of servers that he’s created to try and help out squads or DM as a whole. I know that not all of his ideas work out but it doesn't discourage him from trying again and again. One of his best ideas was the KSI everything you need to know DM specific. It’s a server for all the officers and any potential ones to join and it has quite literally everything an officer could need. This is just one example of the many things he’s done for DM. That is just the technical aspect. I’ve seen him take potential officers and officers under his wing and help them out by giving them advice showing special interest in them and helping motivate them to be better people. He plays games with the members and makes them feel welcome like any good leader would do. Even though he does get a little hot headed at times it does show his passion for KSI and it’s people when he sees someone being mistreated Kyle isn’t afraid to speak up in their defense and when he makes a mistake he owns up to it. I’m really proud of the leader that he has become.

    Gamertag: KSI Dragons 7
    Forums link: @Dragons 7

    Reasoning: Dragons was a hard decision on what rank to nominate for but I settled on Co-Fo because he really has excelled at doing everything that was asked of him and then some. Dragons not only goes out of his way to play with his two squads but he goes around to other ones posting in different squad chats always offering advice and help to anyone that needs or wants it. He is always trying to improve his squads by coming up with different game plans finding out people’s strengths and weaknesses and using those strengths to better DM and improving their weaknesses to make them better. He never seems to lose his sunny disposition always having fun and showing the fun of being in KSI. Dragons like all of my 7's staff show an overabundance of willingness to do whatever it takes to make certain DM continues to run well. Dragons also went on the initiative and created a weekend warfare channel to help members find teams for T&E which it’s been getting used a lot. Dragons has been and continues to be a pillar for DM and I look forward to seeing what he does in the future.

    Forums link: @KSIxROMEO 7

    Reasoning: What can I say about Romeo that hasn’t been said by countless other people. Since I’ve known him he has always been a people person. He goes into a party and starts a conversation and treats them like he’s known them for years. He earned being a general by way of taking a split which he was instrumental in doing. Shortly after the split several of his officer’s stepped down it was basically him and one other officer doing all the work until he found more officers. The one fault I can give him is with his pride he didn’t want to accept help from the 7's staff. Over time he grew his squad and his officer staff and did an outstanding job on growing and building a lasting foundation for his squad. Today his squad is the biggest most active squad in DM and it is due mostly to his leadership skill and those that follow him. He has since become a Co-Fo and he’s able to pass on that knowledge to two different squads.

    Forums link: @KSI AWOL

    Reasoning: AWOL has always been there for his squad. He’s usually one of the first people to volunteer to host a game night or host a workshop. I’ve seen him go out of his way to greet new members no matter what squad they are from he’s always there for them. When the squad is having problems he actively looks for solutions if those don’t work out he tries another tactic. AWOL is really big on communication with his fellow officers which has been crucial in helping out his squad. He hasn’t been doing it alone he’s not afraid to ask for help from his fellow officers which is a really good thing in a leader. AWOL really stands out to me because like everyone else that I nominated this year truly does care about his fellow KSI members and he took on rank and continues to help out.

    Forums link: @KSIdontask

    Reasoning: anyone that has meet Dontask would agree that she not only does her responsibility's as an officer above and beyond expectations but she also has a way with people that sets them at ease after a few minutes of talking to her. I’ve noticed that when she hosts a party people just love to join it and instantly start talking freely and open with her. It’s hard to describe because I’m terrible with words but she has a natural ability for a lack of a better word to actually listen to people and their problems sometimes she offers advice and tells something personal that she’s gone through so they know that their not alone. Other times or I should say always she finds a way to encourage them and motivate people to do better be better. Whether it’s her talking in a party or through words on discord or the forums she’s always helping build people up and helping never tearing anyone down. As a matter of a fact I don’t think I’ve ever heard her say something bad about someone I’ve seen her disapprove of something someone has done and corrected them but never tear them down.

    Gamertag: KSI MeShell 7
    Forums link: @KSI MeShell 7

    Reasoning: Over the last year MeShell has held several different ranks in KSI and at each rank she really hasn't changed just the level of responsibility. The reason one of many why I’m nominating her for member of the year is because since I’ve known her she has always done what she can do to help out. When she wanted a transfer to DM for a fresh start I was excited to have her here because I had seen how she was with her fellow members in CD. I knew that if she brought that mentality to DM she would be an excellent addition to our DM family. When she transferred she didn't want rank due to IRL and had to concentrate on her studies and rightfully so. When she came into DM it was to a squad that was in the process of rebuilding activity was pretty much non existent. MeShell was instrumental in helping boost activity she would join official and unofficial game nights and she would be the life of the party. She always encourages people to play together and just have fun. On top of that she’s always chatting with members in discord asking how their day is going and just being an all around great person. There are several people that I can think of to nominate for member of the year but MeShell really has a way of standing out. She genuinely cares about her fellow members getting them involved in games even Roblox a game several people swore they would never play but she showed the fun in it and gets people to play together. People enjoy joining her party’s and hanging out and everyone respects her because she respects them.

    Reasoning: Joe has always been there for his fellow members no matter who they are he always has a way with him that is warm and inviting. Whenever he meets someone new he’s always says “nice to meet you dude nice to have you in KSI” on top of that Joe always likes to get to know the members and asks their names if they are comfortable sharing it with him and I don’t know how he does it but he actually remembers all their names when they pop into a party. That is the type of guy Joe is he cares about people he has been seen as a bit of a father figure, counselor and mentor to many in DM. Joe doesn’t care who you are he will play with you and help out.

    Reasons they deserve this award - Grunt is the most respectable man in KSI I have ever met. He always has a light attitude about everything, but when something needs done, he knows how to speak softly and carry a big stick. Through out this division you will never hear a bad word spoken about him and thats not because hes never had to piss someone off, but because everyone knows when its time for business, he gets it done. Ive witnessed several accounts of him going day after day of gettting on, but staying at the home screen just so he can hear out situations, even the ones that he doesnt even need to bother himself with. This man always has an ideal to make a bad situation, into something the members can agree on. He is the kind of leader who will listen and hear out everything before taking any kind of action. He has had the back of every one of us fellow 7s in DM and has helped us all understand what it means to be a respected leader.

    Reasons they deserve this award - I had a hard choice trying to decide if I should put him for co-fo or gen, mainly because he is/has been great at both. I chose to put him for gen because while he was general this year, he really took off with being the kind of leader he is today. Throughout all of DM, you will never find a person as loved by his squad as Romeo. He has a family and works 50+ hrs a week, but always found time to get with every member of his squad and organize all of the squad activities. The squad, VENOM, has really taken the helm of DM and become the "rock squad" of this division. This was all because of the dedication Romeo put to it and has instilled in the officers of that squad. Romeo is not just the best gen i have seen this year, but the best gen I have ever seen.

    Reasons they deserve this award - Awol has helped run the squad DISCORD for going on 6+ months now, as a captain. I have never seen a more professional mannered member throughout my time in KSI. He may not be the biggest recruiter, nor the best shooter, but it will be hard to find another member who cares about the "little people" as much as he does. Everything he has done, has not been for himself, but for the betterment of his squad and division. Infact, I remember earlier this year how hard it was to even get him to want to be an officer, but when he saw his fellow squad mates struggling, that was what made the decision to step up and be an officer.

    Reasons they deserve this award -  It would be an understatement to try and pin any one rank that he has done well. Joe has been apart of DM for awhile and really, he is the perfect example of what KSI and DM stands for. Joe has really shown all of us in DM what it means to be apart of this online family and stick up for the ones we care about. Even when he stepped down earlier this year, members still knew/know, if you go to joe, it will be fixed. It can be irritating at times how people will go to joe before they even go to an officer, but that is just to show the level of commitment to DM he has and how loved by his peers he truly is.

I always see him pushing his depts activities and he is always on the hunt for the next thing he can get going. I really appreciate him always reaching out to other depts for help such as pushing articles or requesting news images. He really shows what it takes to run a Dept and I can only hope to get the gfx team in shape as he has the News Team.

    Reasons they deserve this award - I have seen this member rise in the ranks from when he first joined KSI to now, he puts his heart into all the work that he does for his squad. He always has an upbeat personality even when things get tough. I’m honored to know this guy and to have had the chance to work with him.

    Reason they deserve this award- She has gone all out in helping with getting Discord back on track. She teamed up with me to help make a spread sheet for us officers to help keep track of our members and what’s going on. She is always ready to welcome new members into the family and tries her best to get recruits even though she works at night. It has been a great honor getting to know her and work with her as an officer. She is an amazing officer and can’t wait to see how far she goes.

    Reasons they deserve this award - This guy.. since he’s come to discord he has helped bring the activity back to the squad whether it be on discord with his good morning messages or on Xbox by getting members to play siege and have fun. Watching this guy grow into his own officer and having the privilege to work with him. He’s always willing to learn and work even when we have a “vacation”. Invalid is an awesome guy to know and to have help teach about playing siege to members who want to try it out.
  18. Thanks

    Reason they deserve this award:
    KSI AWOL deserves this award and many others, if I am being honest. He has been the rock of our squad through thick and thin. Ever helpful and almost always available no matter what time of day or night. He is endlessly positive even when the worlds gone crazy. His patients is unending. If he cannot answer a question himself, he will find the answer. He is constantly going above and beyond in regards to helping anyone, even folks from other squads, whether in game or with squad related issues. In all of KSI, he has been the one person I know I can rely on for almost anything, from help with a difficult stage in a game, to idle convo, or even simply a friendly voice in general. He is a continued example of what KSI is about and what gaming is for all of us.

    KSI AWOL reacted to I am FuzzyMeep™ in FuzzyMeep AMA   
    I would ask them to evaluate their situation, do they have enough time to provide KSI? does that allow them enough time for themselves? What are their goals, if it is to move up are they able to do that or hell even maintain the position they are in?. If someone is on the fence it is for a reason, generally external but easily internal. So how would one go about changing that and probe them for answers. Internal there are many things you can do instead of whatever it is you are doing if you do not like the job or the people, external if it is life, work, family then it is more important....
     
    at the end of the day though i would not encourage anyone to leave, They should take an LoA and evaluate things, or step down to a sgt (I know crazy concept) just get online when they can and game with people....not everything is about rank nor is it a requirement to move up. game and enjoy yourselves. especially if you put in a lot of work over the years and cant meet the level of enthusiasm or effort they set for themselves. But doing nothing or leaving altogether are both recipes for disaster,. one will burn you out and the other may "free" you for the moment but you will still want to game with these people so why not stay and chill

    Reasons they deserve this award - The past few weeks Kratos and I have gotten to know each other and the way we run as officers, I have never met someone so willing to help out the squad and go out of their way for the members other then Kratos. On a daily basis Kratos plays with the members and keeps a calm cool head even when they make him loose his rank in Ranked. The past few weeks I have seen Kratos grow more and more with the squad learning who needs what and how to deal with little problems that may occur in the squad. The past weekend the Americans had their Thanksgiving and KSI had their Turkey bowl, even though our general gave us the week off Kratos seen some non-American members playing alone and invited them to the games and parties to hang out so they wouldn't feel alone. We recently had a member in our squad that was approached by some former members of KSI now threatening to DDOS him and the other members on his friends list, even tho it was Thanksgiving Kratos went and did a security check for the whole squad with the assistance of two other members to make sure that no one's holiday would be effected by immature children. Kratos is an amazing officer and I can't wait but grow with him and the squad and learn more from.

    Reasons they deserve this award:
    So lets be honest, Kitty and I haven't always gotten along in fact there was a time where Kitty and I hated each other and for no good reason. (Our personalities are too close in my opinion) The past year Kitty and I have worked together in T&E and that was the only place we were "forced" to work together in, honestly I am so happy we did! In the past year Kitty has been my go to cat when I need anything, my questions in T&E were always straight to her, questions on awards I would go to her, damn even questions on being a better member or officer I went to kitty, she had every right to blow me off due to our past. Kitty never did though she was ALWAYS professional. Kitty has always been a member that any member can go to about anything. In T&E I do all I can to make things easier for her because she bends over backwards for us, there is no place in KSI where I don't see Kittys name pop up, there is no doubt in my mind that Kitty deserve this award, in fact she deserves more then this! I am so happy I met Kitty and to call her not only a friend but a mentor I hope to continue to learn form Kitty as the days go on.

    Reasons they deserve this award: First lets go back about a year, Bryan (YAMAT0 aka God Zeus) had two BEAUTIFUL babes! With the task of new born twins, Bryan never gave up on KSI let alone a squad who hasn't always been at the top of the charts. Since returning to DM and joining DISCORD I have been under YAMAT0's command, and I am a little too suborn to admit I have learned a lot from him, and more then anything patience, Bryan has done more then keep a squad that isn't always doing the best, together but keeps his members active, when Bryan and I met I wasn't his biggest fan but after a year of getting to know him and what he does as a gen  I have so much respect for this man!
