KSI Spring 2018 Donation Drive 05/09/2018If KSI has made a difference in your life and you want to make a greater difference in the community, please donate here. Every donation that KSI receives is immediately put toward tournaments, events and site upgrades that improve the KSI experience for all members. “The members are KSI’s driving force, and this donation drive is an opportunity to play a larger role in creating the future of KSI,” Chief Operating Officer KSI ImPyyy 7 said. “We’re continuing our efforts to make our events and support structure bigger and better than ever, and every donation goes toward that goal.” The emphasis of this drive is improving the swag we will be giving away for Spirit Week, as well as making some necessary improvements to our server/sites. However, no donation drive has ever had the rewards and incentives this drive has. During the current donation drive, any member who donates $75 or more will receive their own customized group on the forums, complete with unique color and sprite image next to their display name. Anyone who gives *any* amount — through donations, bits, or subscriptions to KSILive — is eligible for a VIP-only event that will be hosted at Spirit Week. Should you feel usual donations are too much, but still want to contribute, you can subscribe to our Twitch channel, KSILive. All subscribers will still receive a Twitch Sub award, the “I ❤️ KSILive” group, and be entered into the VIP only event at Spirit Week. This will allow members to show off the perks of contributing more to the community. As always, despite the rewards for higher-level awards, there are still perks for those who aren’t able to reach that threshold. Any and all donations will be thanked and rewarded with the “I ❤ KSI” member group on the forums, ‘Spring Chicken’ donation award, as well as specific tiered forums awards based upon the amount donated. The awards will be: Platinum $1-$25
Oynx $75 Thank you, KSI Web Staff

A Co-Founder or higher in the division is responsible for posting the sign-ups. No other members should be posting the sign ups. The rosters can be changed up until the sign-ups close thirty minutes before the event begins. All members who compete must be registered on the forums and/or documented on G14/Omega before 21 May 2018. Any member recruited into KSI and entered into the CMS after 21 May will not be eligible to compete in the games on the consoles. They will be eligible for the Forums Poll, Minecraft build-off, Donor FFA, and Social Media events. --- **Donor Free-For-All** There will be a Donor-only Free-For-All event on Sunday, June 24 at 2 p.m. EST. To be eligible, you must donate at least $5 to the Donation Drive through our PayPal, a Twitch Subscription to KSILive, or Bit Donations in the stream between now and June 20, 2018 -- the start of Spirit Week. The Free-For-All will be a UNO tournament at https://play.unofreak.com/. Those who play UNO will be eligible to get one (1) participation point per division, and winners of the event will be eligible for individual prizes. --- **Prizes** Individual prizes must be redeemed by contacting KSI's CFO, KSI Ace 7. If a prize is not claimed by 1 August 2018, you will forfeit your right to them and they will be recycled for future use. In total, more than $300 in prizes will be up for grabs between individual winners and the top-3 divisions at the end of the weekend. --- **Divisional Cup** As with all of our major events -- Spring Break, Spirit Week, and Fall Classic -- the final standings of the event will contribute to the Divisional Cup standings. --- **Scoring Guide** Each event will be graded as follows. The Forums Challenge Poll will open in the Spirit Week section of the forums on the first night. For a division to get a participation point for the Challenge, they must garner 20 votes in the poll. For the rest of the events, they must have one team show up and compete. If they field two teams, they will not gain a second participation point. 1st = +3 points
2nd = +2 points
3rd = +1 point
Participate = 1 point --- **Social Media** If you don't know, we have a Facebook and Twitter! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/KSIGlobalOfficial/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/KSIGlobalGaming Divisional activity for Spirit Week will be judged by KSI's Board of Directors and Social Media curators. The official hashtags for Spirit Week are #KSI and #SpiritWeek. Using those hashtags and denoting your division in your posts will make it easier for us to see and rebroadcast your posts. Divisions are eligible for additional points as a result of their social media activity, including posting, new followers, new likes, and posts showing KSI Spirit. --- **Scoreboard** --- Thank you for reading, and we hope to see you all at Spirit Week 2018! Love, The Board.
Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Skarzx Founder EO Link to forums account - @KSI Skarzx 77 Reasoning why they deserve this - He has gone out of his way being available whenever needed and does an exemplary job of spending time with members and making the whole community a better place, giving members opportunities to step up in addition to inspiring members to want to move up and be better each day. General Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Kaos Reeper GEN - EO/Defiant Link to forums account - @Kaos Reeper Reasoning why the deserve this - Kaos has been a great person to work with. He goes out of his way to make each one of our members feel at home and takes extra time to play with everyone. He even came up with a day for random game types based on what the members were into that day which gives more diversity to the group and more opportunities for members to play with each other. He guides all the members forward and helps them strive to be better each day and motivates each and every one. Captain Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Sinz - 4CPT EO/Talon Link to forums account - @KSI Sinz Reasoning why they deserve this - He has stepped up and shown leadership qualities when his squad needed him among making sure his members feel at home. Whenever anything needed to be done he made a point to keep everything and everyone together attending every meeting and taking responsibilities above his when asked. Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Envy Sol SGT - EO/Defiant Link to forums account - @FoxFireNyoki Reasoning why they deserve this - I'm simply amazed at how some people you bring in can make such a difference in the atmosphere of a squad. Since he has been here he has gone out of his way to play with new members even if it's not his normal game type and even gave a name change he won to someone interested in being an officer, the kindness and overall productiveness of this member has stood out to me immensely and I personally think deserves to be rewarded, I would love to see more members as him flourish in KSI.
I came into KSI seven months ago having no idea what to expect from joining a gaming community. Defiant has had many ups and downs in the time I've been here even moments where it felt like nothing was happening. From the moment I said I wanted to move up, he's been there every step of the way to support me and help me achieve not only my personal goals in KSI but overall to help everyone have a good experience in the process. He has contributed to a growth in the squad that wasn't just numbers but participation. There are no amount of words to describe how much KSI Kaos Reeper has done for not only Defiant but EO; to say it plainly whenever anyone needs someone he's always willing to be that person, just compassionate and caring of everyone he comes into contact with.
