      Hello! We are proud to announce the official schedule for KSI's 2nd Annual Spring Break, to be held Friday, March 23 - Sunday, March 25, 2018! This year's Spring Break event is momentous in several ways. It is the first large-scale competitive event on the 2018 calendar, and it serves as the official start of KSI's new initiative, the KSI Divisional Cup. As per every large event, there will be a schedule of events, a forums poll, and a scoring system to rank divisions in the order they finish. We will also be holding a Twitch Subscriber Lottery drawing for either KSI Merchandise or a 1-month Loot Crate subscription. Schedule Friday, March 23rd: (8 p.m. EST) Town Hall -- Divisional Cup/Spring Break Q&A Rainbow Six Siege - 4v4 Secure Area Halo 5 - 4v4 Swat Saturday, March 24th: (8 p.m. EST) Rocket League - 2v2 Black Ops 2 - 4v4 TDM Black Ops 2 - 7's FFA Sunday, March 25th: (6 p.m. EST) WWII - 4v4 TDM WWII - 7's FFA Overwatch - 2v2 Mystery Heroes ** Sign-ups for these events will be posted in the weeks to come in the Spring Break area on the forums, which can be found here. Only 7s may post sign-ups for the division, which can be edited until the evening of the event. Each division is allowed just one (1) team per event. For FFAs, there may be just two (2) 7s per division. There will be a Poll posted as part of the event. It will open at 8 p.m. EST on Friday and close at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday. Votes will count toward participation for divisions and members will be asked to post a reply to become eligible for the Spring Break 2018 award! Prizes will be $10 codes, given out to the winners of each individual event. Total prizes for the competition will value ~$200. The Twitch Sub Drawing will happen on Sunday evening. Anybody who subscribes to KSILive before 6 p.m. that night will be entered into the drawing for the merchandise/Loot Crate prize. We may do more than one drawing, depending on Subscriptions. (Reminder: All Subscription revenue is used exclusively for prize pools for events, and the more Subs we get, the more prizes (and the bigger the prizes) we can offer.) Divisional Cup Division Cup will keep track of divisional participation throughout the year! Starting at Spring Break and ending with January's Award Show, we will be ranking divisions each month by their participation, growth, and officer staff ratio to develop a competition for Division of the Year! The division with the most points each month will be named Division of the Month. A list of monthly events will be posted with meeting notes and in the Marketing Area on the forums so everyone can be aware of what will count toward points! Divisions can expect to see points counted for Weekend Warfare, Montage and Clip submissions, News Team contests, Twitch Subscriptions, and OTM/DOTM award periods in the AAP. Additional events will be added depending on what is happening in KSI for that particular month. KSI's large events -- Spring Break, Spirit Week, Fall Classic, and Turkey Bowl -- will count independently and figure into the overall scores, but not the monthly tallies. Social Media Follow along on our Social Media platforms to stay informed, engaged, and to connect with KSI!

Member Management System - Squad Tags & Access Denied

Member Management System - Squad Tags & Access Denied

Squad Tags

  • What is a squad tag?
    • An Xbox account meant to manage a squad within a division
    • A member management system
    • A private account meant for the general or acting general only
    • Should only be accessed via Xbox. Why?
      • When a squad changes generals, and this happens fairly often, the account is pulled and the password is changed. If the account is logged on to a cellular device, computer, tablet, or any other device capable of internet connection, the password is normally saved. If the account is logged on to any of these devices, the profile becomes crippled and will need to be re-created.
    • Should not ever be in an Xbox Live party. Why?
      • These accounts do not belong to the members, they belong to the community. With the lack of Xbox live for silver accounts on the 360, this was not a problem. Now that "Gold sharing" is a thing, having these squad tags in Xbox Live parties endangers them to the risk of being hit offline, friends lists being revealed, squads being attacked.
  • What are squad tags intended to be used for?
    • Managing incoming and outgoing members
    • Providing a list of people in the squad to turn to in order to find someone to game with
    • Sending out messages a minimum of 3 times a week
      • What are some messages that should be sent out every week?
        • Squad Meetings
        • Weekend Warfare
        • Happy Hour
        • Game Nights
      • What are some of the other reasons you may need to send out extra messages?
        • Blacklists
        • Security Risks
        • De-fluffing
        • Potential game type changes


Access Denied

  • What is Access Denied?
    • A member management system
    • Generals and higher only
    • Is not to be mentioned by name in front of lower ranking members. Why?
      • Having the name makes access to the site to easy (Google). We do not want this information falling into the wrong hands.
  • How does Access Denied help leaders?
    • Members are found more easily
    • Upkeep with members
    • Upkeep with games and game types
    • Descriptions - What can they be used for?
      • Officer potential
      • Officer rank
      • Other game types members have
      • Activity levels
      • Fluff
    • Leaders List
    • Access List (Lv 3 and higher)
      • Shows last time online
      • Should be used to keep an eye on divisional 7s and generals
  • Why is it important to log on to Access Denied at least once a week? (Ideally, members should really go no longer than 3 days offline)
    • To make sure member lists are up to date. Ideally, members should really go no longer than 3 days offline
    • As a general, people will be coming from and leaving squads on a regular basis. This will build up if not kept up with
    • As a co-founder, Access Denied should be used to keep an eye on generals and make sure their squads are being updated accurately and correctly
    • Lv 3 and higher, Access Denied should be used to keep tabs on all leaders in your division, ensure all updates are consistently occurring correctly


Access Denied and Squad Tag

  • Both should be accessed almost daily, no less than once every 7 days. Longer than 7 days offline can mean disciplinary actions
  • Both are extremely important in squad management
    • Members come and go, this helps leaders keep track
    • Messages convey important information, access to all members at once
  • Do not share your password to either of these accounts, ever.
