  1. Pvt-General~Heat FS Join Date April 2008 The way i joined KSI was like most other stories, i was in a game with a few people (custom H3 on Avalanch) and i met KSI Dethden and KSI space (my future maj and gen) they were Poop talking me in a playful mannor and i told then essentailly to Huck off and left the game, i ended up being reinvited by my buddy mogarman and made friends with the kids, they were only Poop talking cuz i kept killing them in the massive swat game. after hanging with them i met a few more guys who were apart of Firestorm. after about a week of gaming i decided to join ksi when ksi dethden said he would make me a 1 month account if i joined ksi and boosted him in H3 (i know, little messed up lol) so i did purly because i wanted a new tag to rank up in fast (H3 ranking was not like the scrub cod ranking or h4 ranking, it involved skill). and to top it all off he started me off as the 3rd captian in Heat FS....i had actually no idea what i was doing but i understood the system to an extent, give a higher up something and he will promote you. I hung around for a few weeks meeting and greeting people like KSI Holiday, KSI Apollyon, KSI Jvav and KSI mSanders. in under a month of being in KSI my two main freinds in ksi (dethden and space) hit my squad, took most of the leaders and the members. I had a choice right there if i wanted to leave or stay and i opted to stay...mostly based on the fact i was made the major of Heat and i was over the squad. i got more friendly with the upperleader ship now knowing spider, kalem and a few others. soon an new gen was brought over me namde ksi LEE. lee was good Poop and taught me a lot, ended up being one of my best mates in ksi, still talk to him to this day. he however again like the gen before hit ksiclan.net and the squad, but blammed it on his friends when he was drunk and they were former ksi friends and over. he took it to the courts, i defended him and ended up getting banned from the court area for a few days (my first exosure to the forums lol) he won the case but was not allowed to be gen anymore due to poor judgement and i was promoted. this however did not last long, i ended up getting demoted by ksi apollyon and ksi msanders for saying midget and i got the hell out of there Major~Uprise RS I got a transfer to RS (which was brand new) and started a new and the first squad of RS Uprise, i enjoyed it. i built it up and was major, it was a good feeling and i felt like i had some freedom to be my self (saying midget lol) this would not last, little over 2 months of being in there i met the director of semper fi named ksi Hypnotic 7 (hyppo) and he talked me into joining semper fi, said it was a better suit for me and he was very much right General-Founder~Semper Fi v2 I transfered over to SF due to Hyppo and i was gen over a squad (cant rememer which one) i built it up heavely and maxed it out soon after, the div leaders were impressed and ended up promoted me to Co FO and that is were i met KSI Clown who was the Poop. his squad was called clown care due to the fact he would recruit anyone with a pulse and if they were under 17 he would tell them to lie (some kids were roughtly 8 y/o hence the name clown care) i dont remember much about my squads as a cofo, i know i looked over my 2 and 2 others that i though were under me cuz the other co fo was a tool bag. one day i was brought into a party with hyppo, clown (founder) and Javelin (CoDiv) my div leader at the time army ace and they told me i was being removed from my position due to me being in a blacklisted members game and i responded by saying that was bull Poop and quitting the party...i then resieved a text from hyppo saying he was just kidding and get my ass back in the game. i rejoined the game and that is when they told me i was being removed from co fo due to the fact iw as being promoted to founder and i laughed my ass off. that however did not last long, soon after army ace was promoted to dir and hyppo to senior and the two above me were buddys of ace and didnt know much of what was going on. so i transfered to XW who's dir requested me due to needing help and know sf could spare the leadership Division leader~Xtreme Weaponry upon arrival in Xw i realized that all of what the Dir told me was a lye, there were not 2 squads, there were two tags and 10 people....so i took to the streets (game matchmaking) and started to recruit, we get xw up to about 50 people and then the dir left along with his other div BM and most of my members went with him cuz they knew him much longer then me and that is were there loialtys lie. which left XW with 1 person (me, only after 2 weeks of being in) and it was closed, so i transfered...again Co Division Leader~Dragon Realm DR was another dying division that i went to under the leadership of KSI Tex 7 as dir. after spending a week in there it was deemed to gone to work with and was closed (it again had no members when i joined and they old time theory was to never let a div die) so i was out on my own.....again Clan black ops for a months time i was in a clan called CBO and it was a paid community to hit other communities, all the members only knew the leader of CBO and had BS tags to not inform the others of who we were, i was in there under the order of KSI Worstplayer to protect ksi, after hitting a few clans and slowly realzing who some people were i outed them when they were about to hit ksi. upon this action bill not knowing i was working with worst i was blacklisted....and it was the worst because i was blacklisted the same day as my one year anniversery and the day i got y ksi t shirt in the mail, i sat all night being upset with ksi blush and drank jamason ( i am pretty sure i puked but as far as this story goes i didnt) i woke up the next moring with messages from worst and blush saying if i was not unblacklsed they were quitting and one from bill saying i was unblacklisted...this is the reason i will always respect worst player, despite wanting to kill him sometimes Public Relations After being apart of 2 different divs and having them both close in less then a month out side of my control i started to lose faith in KSI. so i seeked out and old friend KSI army ace who was now a senior director. he know that i was a talked and knew i knew a lot about ksi ( i assumed i knew it all then realized i didnt at all lol) i started hanging with all the leaders, working with the company Evil controllers with ksi bronx 7 and strated setting up live steam pay site to have pro gamers teach members who paid how to play h3 like a pro. but that didnt last long because something happened between bill and evil and we stopped getting sponsered by them, leading the leader to leave i was working with. i then started working with bamashakes on getting new sponsers, but as you guess. most companys didnt give a Huck regarding gaming communities. we then started a new program having president and vice presidents and teams. and my job was to go div to div explaining why the leadership roles and ranks were changing. they created IDD teams with these pres and vps, consisting of The Pres, VP, Senior, Graphics artist, HR and pr. i was apart of team ion. idd stood for isolate, detain and defuse....which in theory was a good accroynmy and you would want to do that in situations but our team mostly Hucked around and pink listed people....i did these jobs for about 3 months and i got online one day nad realized i didnt get the mass messages like i did before when i was in clanops and that was the day i realized i needed to get back into clan ops Director~SF I talked to KSI Hyppo who was still a senior and he told me as long as the other seniors didnt mind, he would make me a director and let me reopen SF (which had closed while i was in DR...tough times for ksi) the seniors said ok and i was thrilled. i opened SF and recruited my old buddy KSI Javelin (was the co div in sf when i was in originally) and jav was the div leader. we built up a few squads, it all went well and then i opend out 3rd squad and named it Fuzzball cuz i thought it was amazing, hyppo told me that if i got Fuzzball to 30 members in two weeks with a specific percentage of tags KSI i could leave it open and i did. This is when my knowledge of KSI actually started expanding , despite going through the ranks being a PR guy and all that, i never realized how little i knew until i was the director and the "guy in charge" and had to lead that div as a whole, this was my first real mesure of sucsess in ksi, i made my div and got it going. this was considered the bad news bears div of KSI at that point, i basicly used to recruit out of the court area and gave everyone a second chance, this is where i became friends with lil swag, black dave, dillpickle, megatron, rebellion and many more. over the 9 months i was director over it we went from rags to riches, ending up being the second biggest div in ksi at the time (800) members. we had some crazy Poop come out of SF, we were a tight unit....we made fun of one another all of the time but if anyone Hucked with our guys, they Hucked with all of us. KSI black dave was once told something rude by KSI Becca (Co creator at the time) so dave getting upset called her a *****, she blacklisted him...he then brught it to the courts and after appealing his case and the judges reading the Poop talk becca gave him unblacklisted him and this left becca pissed and her and shotty quit KSI (they will be back though, seek United Section). We had a KSI CookBook in our forum section which all the senior leders thought was the coolest thing, we got many praise but it was apparent that none of them had actully read it, it was all about pot brownies, weed pancakes, jell shots and Poop like that which made the senior praise so much better. the art of Semper fi was that people who were in it hated one another like stated before but it was a family atmishpere. We had rebel who was a straight hick from the south and borderline racist working with swag who was the biggest wigger in the world and dave who is straight out of the Poopy sections of la and them collaborating was the funniest things in the world. We had many highs and lows in that div but always kicked ass, remember the other leaders not caring for us because it was such a lax enviorment yet the guys did what they had to, and some other divs like ls were run like hitlers youth. Director FU I was begging for a second div as a director about one month in, and once the seniors decided i proved my self Shotty gave me the div FU or forever united. the div was okay but i hated the name and i hated shotty due to the fact our only convo we had had in the past was him telling me that obama was gonna legalize weed and me calling him retareded and to put it softly, we didnt like one another, so as soon as i could i dumped FU for bigger and better divs..i didnt like being under his spot light Director FS This was my main goal, when i first joined it was in FS, and it was my home no matter how much i loved SF i started in firestorm...when i joined FS was at 900 people, but by this time FS was under 200 due to multi hits and poor leadership, i begged for this div and i kept getting shut down by kalem...he didnt think i was a good enough leader to run that div, but after making sf a sucsess he finally gave in and i was given my home back. with holiday as my leader we went from 150 to 400 and built many leaders of ksi. this div worked heavely with SF, as they were my pride and joy in ksi. they bounced ideas off one another and many game nights happened between Director SD, SA I dont have much memories over these divs, i took them over when a director had to leave but they were basicly KSI Saint 777's divisions (he was a senior) i went to meetings and delt with little things but he ran that Poop Director GW GW was an interesting div, like sa and sd i didnt have to do much with them but not due to a leader above them but because they were amazing leaders. they were originally XW (xiled warfare) but when TXI left KSI (Leo's crew) i stopped that div from leaving and talked them into chagin there div and staying. they werea a sweet crew of people and i wish more leaders were like them Director FL Fuzzy Legions was more of a joke division originally but i had almost all the big divs under my belt and n one questioned it, FL was a split from SF and was the only sucsessfull all gears squad of all time....CNX was at the time doing all the gears teams but i refused to transfer my guys over there and in time cnx gears failed and FL flurished (granted only hitting 300 members but for gears it was great) Director HB WHen i was over HB (the 360 version of the H2 Divisoin that was still around) i met KSi airborn, ksi balphazarand ksi DH thymine and msnaughty, all amazing people. thymine and naughty were h2 seniors and took care of the div for the most part, i again just did routine things (this was my 5th or 6th div at the time) Head of Productions I took over head of productions for a small ammount of time, we created many montagues but soon after ksi 5 stars joined ksi and this guy actually worked on the CGI for the 3rd harry potter movie and knew his Poop so i stepped down Head of the Member of the Month As director the old of the month system was just the directors discussing who it should be and making it happen. but at this point the directors were all lazy and motm was mostly forgotten about so i took it over and polled the other leaders as to who should be the member of the month, this was in turn the beginning of the aap in reality Senior director I was made a senior director after being a director for about 9 months, being promoted by KSI Worstplayer and one other board member (cant remember) and KSI coletrain 7 (even though he was a senior at the time) along with KSI Wyatt ad KSI adam a few weeks later. the first thing i did upon gaining the rank was search my name in the seniors area to see how my many reviews went, they were all good but one, i did find one with kalem while first over SF and FS and he said the statement that i would never be anything more then a director, that was teh day i decided i wanted to be the CoS and prove them all wrong. my first action as a senior was to work with my fellow buddy and senior ksi wyatt to removed many of the dead beat directors, (backthen 2 seniors could demote/promote a director) day one of us being seniors we demoted 3 directors and promoted 2 up, we were here ot make an impact, we saw what the other seniors didnt due to being a director for so long and being one the day before, we knew our former co workers and there work ethics. there was one director inpaticular that i truly hated KSI Rhakheart 7. i knew her for almost a year, when i first met her she was hot Poop, and had a boyish voice, many people confused her with a boy, after not speaking for a few months (it happens sometimes) she got promoted to director and i went to congratulate her and to my surprise she now sounded like a girl and had a crazy high pitched voice, she had changed it to kiss ass and get a high rank. while i was running around 4 or 5 divs at teh time, prob around 1200 members she had one div, an all female div and it had about 15 girls in it. While i was stil a director i was at my brothers house hanging out and i get a text from my div ledaer of SF (megatron) he says this chick is taling Poop about me and my divs and he is arguing with her...she said i was a Poopy leader and my divs were always causing issues. so i got on my bros xbox under his tag (FuzzyMeep TWO) and i got in the party, right when i entered she stopped talking and denied everthing i was told she said. upon leaving the party i get a message from one of her members and she said that i was 100% right and she said all that Poop, so to make a long story short she was my first target when i got to senior, i wanted to demote her but the other seniors said i was too close due to our past and could not demote her, so i asked them why are we keeping her a director any ways, she has had one div for 6 months and only has 15 people in it and they agreed and decided to demote her, that was one of my first lessons in ksi on how to work with in the system to do what i need to get done Only 1 month into being a senior KSI Ringare rolled out a new rank structure with the backing of Bill. It was the Department system. there was Dept of Justice, interior and many more. i actually unlike most leades loved the idea and decided i was just gonna de security ( i had been in and out of security since i was a major in RS) but KSI apollyon (the one who demoted me years before for saying midget) requested i join the GAO (a advisement office which was the seniors and over clan ops) i gladly accepted while still assisting in security. GAO the first day of the gao was had all of the seniors in there and decided we needed to trim it to active people and non radicals, one of the radicals being KSI Coletrain (who i love to death now adays) it was my job being the FNG to tell him he was removed from the gao and this started a 1 month battle of mass messages slandering me, and me him and in many different topics in senior/leaders area. once i figured cole out i stopped responding to his angry messages with more anger, but i responded with things like pick a flower not a fight and anyone who knows cole knows it just infuriated him, this was enough to show the leaders of ksi that he needed to be regulated and removed completly from the gao presence. during this time we brought ksi from 6000 people ( a lot of fluff and bs divs) and made it much more standard and ksi to 7000 all confermed people, no silver tags and no fluff (well i am sure there as some but not much) the gao was a sucsess, and in only a few months and with apollyne (who was incharge of the dept of interior and gao) leaving for a month long vaca i was promtoed to the head of Dept of interior and gao and took over clan ops (essencially bbeing the cos position, but not the cos cuz at that time razedrake was the cos and was incharge of keeping bod member in line) towards the end you could tell there was some tension regarding the gao from upper managment, they didnt like this "new school" way of running things. very diplomatic and not in yur face, example of this is the gao and ksi solid 7 (bills lap dog) sat on the phone and discussed the directors at the time and a few we needed to demote and a few to promote. after talking a while we all decided n a list and ne of the new promotions was KSI Saint 777 (old senior who stepped away from ksi due to work and was back) Bill didnt like saint and when bill talked to solid about who promted him he said he was against it in the chat (which was bs) and that it was all me and tex, so we got demoted to sgts....and only due to the reactions of our members we got our ranks back. After that i started to hang around solid some and ask him questions (he was a guy who went from founder to senior to coo in the matter of months, dnt ask me why) and solid asked me and kered if we ever kicked somene out and they got back in from the courts, we both answered the same regarding we would watch them like a hawk and kick em if we needed to, he responeded with oh i would just make something up and kick them out again. that is when i knew this guy would be a major issue in ksi. and he was. the gao lasted 6 months was in my opinion was very sucsessfull but some old timers of ksi came back and decided that they didnt like the system despite what we had done and the dept system was over Office of Awards and Achievements During the dept system time i took over the OAA and created the system with KSI manual mist and airborn what would become the Awards and achievment program (AAP) this ended up being the best award system we ever had and many clans still use to this day Head of internal Security During the dept system i took over internal security, runnign it and creating many contacts outside of ksi that i still have today, we worked to talk down many hateful clans, worked against VGA and MEA and had many spies around other clans to watch the enemys....this all seems silly know but at the time i would swear it was the most important thing out there Head of the Dept of Justice I was promoted to this position and itwas over the court system, this promotion however happened simply weeks before the dept system closed, in which i was made into a judge afterwards FTLA During all this time i was asked by Bill in a party with KSI Javelin to either run a religious program or a Education program, i was asked frist and chose Education....i took what valient had wrote many moons before and rewrote it into what was the original FTLA class, i decided i wanted it more about colabortive communication and that it should be a discussion based class not a lecture (as it was under ringare previously) so i took what valient wrote, and worked it into my own words and own style in a 8 week program which was the longest lasting program of all clans as far as education goes. the class was simply aimed at a group of leader discussing topics that i would bring up weekly, the first 4 weeks were much simpler, based on simple problems, knowledge and a mock court case (that was real court case but with dif names) and had the leaders go through it and decide the fate of the member. there was a day were each member had to recruit me and sell me on ksi. i did a before and after recruitment cuz i wanted them to see what tehy said and then how to improve on it. weekd 5-8 were much mroe intense, dealing with suicide issues, racial issues and how to IDD and control situations. all in all i think the class was a sucsess, i had some better and some worse classes over the year. and only one time did i dump an entire class due to the members not wanting to talk. i told them this is a convesation based class and yall dont have anything to say, class dismissed. i did a total of 10 classes in my time before the leadership of the prgram went to a few others I.E Balphy and Queenjess. the class still runs today here under a new name (LEAD) and on bills site still as the FTLA (the major principles are still in it but game we rewritten it a few times) The board After the creating the FTLA, AAP and running clan ops for a long time i was offered a promotion by bill for the rank of CIO which i turned down due to the fact that there were any cios at the time and i didnt want to be the bottom feeding rank of the board...upon denying the CIO position Valient sent me an offer to be the Chief of education and i also denied that as well not wanted to limit my self to one area in ksi....i had one position i wanted and that was CoS but knowing i would not get that i got the offer i was waiting for, it was a positioin formorlly held by KSI Apollyon and KSI Ragnarok. Chief preformance officer CPO This was my rank, it was grated access over clan ops but was mainly a Education/BoD position. i was this rank for well over a year and worked most of my magic here. This is wear i perfected (well in my opinion) the FTLA and AAP, and created the Performance Opporations (which were simply HR with a new title) Performance Operations They were a team of people who i trusted through out the years and were in charge of assisting members in ksi all while secretly befriending furute leaders and training them with out there knowledge (i was under the assumption and still am that you can learn from a friend much better then a teacher) Forum Moderator I was a forum moderator for a while until i changed JT's shout once to something about rags, then logged off only to find out that jt was on the site at the time, got pissed and asked for the person to just admit that they did it....but me being offline i could not and he thought iw as Hucking around with him and removed my access New/Old KSI Leadership Blackghost, Becca, shotty, Bitbt and blackburn all came back to ksi at this point to return to power (this was right after the Dept system was shut down and coo ringare left) they came in and took over all aspects of KSI. It was not a bad time, i was only upset cuz i was removed from clan ops abilities despite being over it for months. we grew a decent ammount under"old school methods" i worked with my PO's and Big to help Clan ops as much as possible. after something going down regarding Friday night fights ( i cant say exactly what happend, i heard many differnt stories but i was not privy to actual knowledge) Shotty burn and becca all left ksi (i believe they were blacklisted previously to making united) to make united. this started a chain reaction of most the leaders not knowing waht was going on but many div leaders wanting to leave due to injustice (which again i assume was injustice cuz there was a track record in ksi's history of other leaders getting Hucked over but i am nt 100% on it) After one last board meeting, bill blacklisted Bigbt and a few others cuz he thought he was apart of united, which led to blkghost to convince the leaders who left to make it KSI united (i have always had the theory that ghost when there to keep everyone ksi in hopes of bringing the back but again i was not 100% on that idea at the time and believed it even less years after) They said united would be different and they would not have a blacklisted....except for KSI Fuzymeep, Tex and Darth Sidious 7 which really pissed me and tex off cuz we had nothing to do with anything going on. we recieved hundereds of hate messages from united for weeks after that while trying to hold the few thousand members of ksi together and get our game on in the Halo reach beta..... 2 month break It hit a point were i could not take the hate mail naymore, i was in school to be a EMT basic and a FF at the same time, me, sf and kered dabbled in united for a few weeks and then decided to be a stand alone div using both forums...we eventually dropped it and i left ksi and xbox for 2 months. upon returning to KSI forums i say that ksi jinvictis was a board member and he had only been on the forums for 2 months which told me something cant be good, a little research showed that KSI was down to 200 members (in LS) and we were hurting Co Founder-Divisions Leader~Xero Degrees So i came back and talked to J3 who was the senior at the time and asked what i could do, he told me i could either take over XD (which was just hit my Iceman and a few others) or join LS as a gen, so i told him i would rebuild XD and give ls some compatition. so we did. brought XD from 0 to 200 members making it the biggest div in ksi and doubling members, LS noticed and started picking up the pace and in no time we hit 800 members and were feeling good again. things were doing great and this is when with the guidence of Rebellion, luci jess and chaos started to emerge as leaders and kick some ass Cheif Performance Officer When i returned I asked Bill if he needed anything, he told me i could be CPO again to to start the AAP and FTLA up again, so i did Director-LE,XD,FE I was eventually promoted to director of XD and LE, and le split into FE and that was the first split in a few eyars, we were around 2000 membera again and things were looking up. my only issue was dealing with a member chimera who was my div leader over XD, i liked the guy ad even met up with him a few times. but a month after meeting him he told me he was going back to war which was retarded cuz the kid was out of shape and with in a month f that he said hewas shot in the lungs and broght home...Poop like thathappens all the time but this one pissed me off esspecially Chief of Staff From director i finally got promoted to the position i always deisred, i got promoted to CoS while i was on vacation skiing in VT. so when i got home i made some power plays and it was for the better, we created communication directors, who would hold all the Squad tag info so we could never lose a squad tag again, andwe made the permanite recuitment goal a simple 5 additional members a week, with these tactics we were on fire. We hit about 4000 members while i was cos and solid was COO and RAze drake was CEO, and then mea started to hit us and unlike my request of having our members just block them solid and raze went on the attack, they made many vids for youtube callingout mea lucky to have a 1v1 and despite what tehy thought would happen, mea just hit us more and we lost about 2000 members. solid and raze lost there jobs after that and Addidis came in to the position of Chairman with Bill stepping down. addidis has asperations of getting the FTLA accreddited by a sponsership of the US army to make it an extra ciricular credit for college schools. this did get pretty far in the process but eventually got shut down due to not having 3 years of regular activity of the FTLA Chief Operating Officer Addidis promoted me to COO after solid and raze's removal, we started to get ksi back to the 4000 mark and again were doing good. this was finally the time to show the world what we were made of. Chief Executive Officer Addidis promoted me to CEO and we where cooking, we chaged tings up and started taking the Rank structure very strictly based off how ksi chaos and ksi queenjess ran ls, they did it strictly by the books and nothing more, nthing less and proved to be the most efficient method (the way the rank structure was viewed before as more of a rough guideline) and we stopped bringing anyone is as a rank above sgt. addidis got removed form Chairman around this time and it was very dissapointing. Soon after Sanders was brought back to teach me how to be a CEO, i was told i had no control over my anger and didnt know how to get angry and then drop it when dealing with a situation so we sat and talked, i told him i was pretty sure i could talk my way though any situation with out yelling and he disagreed, so we did a test, he bagered me and called me tons of Poop, and made fun of my leadership ability and then it was my turn, instead of yelling i just told him it was insane that he was incharge of teaching me how to be a ceo due to the idea that when he was ceo ksi dropped below 1000 members and when i took over we grew above 4000 and he lost it and started yelling, this was a proving point for my self. then a few weeks later the incident that would change everything happened. there was a member named ksi muslim in ksi and he started a chat in the religious area of the forums (the one javelin started back when i started the ftla) and Bill due to unknown reasons wanted this member blacklisted for starting the chat. when rags refused to remove him due to religioun rags was bblacklisted and he demaned jt to ban him, which jt refused. sanders called me the next day and asked what i thought of the situation, and i told him that if bill does not like someone due to race or religioun that is what ever, it is his choice, but he can not do that in the public eye (i am a libitarian, i dont care what peple think or do in there home, as long as it does not effect me and mine) Bill then found out i thoguht he was racist over the whole thing and wanted me blacklisted, we sat in a board meeting that night and sanders talked about how someone was being removed and no one should freak out in which christ responded that we know he is talking about me, sanders discussed that i lied to him on phone calls and i am just a people pleaser in which i told the board they can look at my phone logs,me and sanders had talked twice in 3 months and one of the times he was drunk at a wedding and i didnt lie to him. he then left the convo (was in but not talking) and the board was discussing that it was bs that i was being removed. later that night iw as banned off the forums by sanders, and then unbanned by rags (this went on for a bit) and i was pulled into a parrty with worst player and shido (both board members) and they suggestion we just vote out the chairman of the board, as anyboard could do and we did that. we took a board vote on camera, and all but two people voted to remove bll from the island, leaving him as creator due to the fact we cant remove that from someone. we were hoping to use the original forums with all our members but people who owned stuffon the site were outside of jt...were bill and sanders so we had worst create ksi forums.org. Executive Chairman One week after creating the new site we sat and had a regular board meeting, and discussed what was to be done, we created Weekend warfare and established a new voting system so no one person had total control, we took a vote on who was gonna be CoS, CAO, COO, CEO, and chairman. i was voted into CEO and chairman being Executive Chairman, Chaos was voted to Chief of Staff, Worst was voted to CAO and COO was put on the back burner for a while due to KSI Tex not wanted to contiune with ksi after another new site/split/huge issues, she was burnt out. The first month i went out of my way to make some not so friendly friends, we made pacts with clans like TSB (still good friends with to this day), J2H and MEA....after less then a week J2H broke the pact and hit us, which led mea to break there friendship with j2h and attack them....the term attacking as far as clans go i think is retarded but w/e some people take it super serious. We stayed good with mea for abbout 9 months, when takeoutjosh sent me a message saying that mea was breaking pacts with us and going to attack all of ksi's, he said shotty told him that i screamed at him on the phone, so as i had done before i got my phone logs, and showed josh i had talked to him on the phone once and it was months befrore. then i told lucky if he can hit the other two ksi's and destroy them then i would be afraid (the other two had abbout 1500 members total and we had 5000) and that was that, the board made a decision that we dont deal with other clans or make pacts anymore and we haven again These new rules would set ksi to becoming the best again, during the summer time we decided we need to celebrate us being liberated and getting to 5000 people again, so we held the first of 3 KSI Spirit weeks, this was one of the best ideas ksi has ever had, and with jess spear heading it we made it as one of the most susessful and tiring (for the leaders) week fo the year. we had give aways, kareoke night and many tournys. all i got so far, this is a serious work in progress, so much more to add and so many spelling and gramtical errors to fix

  3. Name/ Gamertag: KSI Ivy 7 Current Rank/ Title in KSI: Founder Profile link: http://www.ksiforums.org/profile/33586-ksi-ivy-7/ Reasons I feel this member should recieve this award Ivy is one of the best 7's I have ever met. She can be hardworking and serious one second and funny, happy and playful the next. She doesnt think that her rank puts her above everyone and there needs either. If she sees that im not happy or anyone else isnt happy, she messages them and helps them with there problems. She will listen to what anyone has to say no matter what anyone has to say. Anything that will make them happy she will do. No matter what. Ivy is one of the 7's that goes above and beyond her job. KSI related or not, she makes sure to keep people happy and active as well as keeping us in line. Thank you Ivy!!

  4. Category: Senior Leader - (Board members, Senior Directors)- Gamertag; KSI Scotland 7 Forums Account Link / @Scotland Reasons they deserve this award - I meet Scotland shortly after he got Promoted to Head Department Manager, Ever since he's been earned that promotion he has been active in the Department Chats. He answers people's questions and teaches people how to be a Leader within the Department Area of the Community. I've learned how to run a Department and what it should mean to do so, Being a leader within this community is a Privilege, not a right. Scotland lives to the belief of Ideas makes Departments grow, Rather than the common idea of the Heads making all the Ideas in the Department, he tells people that everyone has the chance to grow the Department and the Ideas of the Department are mainly from them. Scotland has given me the tools and mentality of looking into a Department, and seeing the goods with the bads. Scotland is a fantastic example of something who deserves an Award in this Category. Director Gamertag; KSI Trendies Forums Account Link - @KSI Trendies 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Ever since Trendies become a Director over DW, He's been a Active part within the Division. He partakes in Events with the members of each of his Divisions He Actively puts his input when available and gives his advice to the new officers of the Division. Compared with other Directors we've had within the last few Months, Trendies is someone who doesn't stay away until needed. Category: Division Leader Gamertag; KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award - I've been with Gary sense the Beginning. Ever since he first became a Co-Founder, I've seen Gary grow as a Leader and train up new Leaders and Officers within the Community. Gary went through all of his 7 Staff leaving him when he was just a Co-Founder. Then again when he was a Founder, Gary has Persisted through the Worst of his Career. He slowly lead the Division along Havoc and King, and Made DW the Biggest Division within the Community, and with the biggest Participation. Gary is now a Director, and proceeding in his Rein of Kicking butt. Gary has been a big inspiration for me to continue my Career, whenever I was feeling unmotivated, or when I thought I needed something to learn when I just became a General, He was there to help me learn and when the other 7 Staff left, he picked up their Training of myself and the other Generals. After all that Dedication, it's Finally paid off. Gary is a good example of someone who never gives up and someone who will preserve through the toughest situation. Category: Co-Division Leader Gamertag; KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award - I met Havoc around I'd say Maybe Around January, Around the time LW merged with DR, and Made the Division DW Some notible events Havoc has done in the past; Became the Head of T&E, and Chief Performance Officer. Those are probably marked as the Top two without many details I didn't know Havoc then, but from when he joined DW, He has put all he has into the Division. He'd stay up late to make sure people were trained or if they were alright, he'd go into training or Mentoring any Members that asked and then members who didn't. Anyone who needed anything, whether it's someone to talk or game with, or if it's something like a Knowledge Workshop, there are countless examples of Havoc doing things like this. Havoc works on a Day to Day basis for the Division, making sure everyone is getting along as a family, and making sure everyone's having a good time, especially the Officers, He always says that everyone deserves time to Play and have a good time. Officers shouldn't work all the time but to remember to have fun, and to remember that's what the community is about. Havoc is a endless source of Knowledge that he is happy to sure with anyone who asks. While that's just inside of the Division Level, Havoc also runs Performance Operations and is improving the Education of the community, he is one of 3 HR Members. Havoc is active with all the Events within the Community, and is always looking for our Members to partake and participate. If there is anyone who deserves an Of the Year Award, it would Definitely be Havoc. Category: Founder Gamertag; KSI xKing 77 Forums Account Link: @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award - I first met King last Year when be transferred to Samurai LW to help. He slowly moved up the Ranks again, when he was promoted to Co-Founder Samurai was on the right track to a Spilt. But that's a different Story When King got to Co-Founder, is when I got to know who he was as a Leader. When King makes up his mind it's very hard to steer him off of it, He puts himself to an Outrageous Task out of reach, and Then Completes it! One example of this is Reviving DR and getting it ready to Spilt, which it then Spilt into CD. King makes sure that people are being Trained property and doing their Jobs, As a Quote he likes to use, "I'm not here to be liked, I'm here to get the Job done.", Is a quote a few Leaders Use. King has been in a few Departments, those being Marketing, and now, he is in History. King has been in many Divisons, and Many areas of KSI. He is also a Join Moderator, and now a Senior Moderator, and is in Performance Operations King has influenced my Career and many Others, He is a Fearless Leader and even with all the things I've stated, he still surprises me He helps other Divisons in need of Leadership, even acting as a so called "Acting Co-founder" in another Division that he's over in PO As a Founder, King has many Talents, and has his hand in many Cookie Jars as I've said above. King gives his 110% in each activity he enters, No matter how many tough situations he's put in, he always pulls through! King is the Ideal Founder Category: Co-founder Gamertag; KSI VENUM 7 Forums Account Link: @VENUM 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Venum is one of the Generals I worked along side with, there is a long list, but Venum sticks out Venum works with each and every member he sees that needs help, He's the kind of guy that needs to pick you up when you feel down. Venum makes sure that Officers are being Trained and people are having a good time in the Community, Venum ran the Headhunters and played with our Team, not in Matches, but in practices and made sure everyone was ready to go Represent our Divisons. Venum I got to know when he got Promoted to Co-founder, which he got After he Spilt Samurai after King got Promoted. He worked with me to fix my Faults and made sure I knew what I was doing, Venum was a type of Leader which I don't see very often. When he sees something that needs to get done he dones it, he doesn't pawn of work to other people. He makes each Opportunity an Educated one for those Willing to Learn. Venum is a great example of a Leader that uses Firsthand Knowledge, I believe he Deserves this Award Category: General Gamertag; KSI Artifice Forums Account Link: @KSI x Artifice Reasons they deserve this award: I've seen Artifice as a Lieutenant, to all the way to a General. Artifice has Struggled in different places, but then excelled when he learned how to properly do it, He was always willing to how to be a better Leader, and how to better himself with those around him. Artifice has had his Ups and Downs when it comes with his Squad, and an Unlucky Hand when it comes to it. He's lost officer staffs, then slowly come back up, then slowly lose them again, But Artifice is someone who hasn't given up. He's determined to Spilt his Squad or make it get to a Healthly Position. Artifice is always available when it comes to the Education of his Squad and to how the others in our Division. Artifice is a fun person to be around, He always brings a light atmosphere when he joins the Party, whenever people play he tries to make it into a Gamenight and get everyone involved. Artifice is Definitely someone i could of Worked better with, or worked harder to understand. But at the end of the Day, He is becoming a great leader within the Community and i hope he continues to have that Learning Mindset! Category: Captain Gamertag; KSI Bane 7 Link to Forums Accounts: @King Bane Reasons why they deserve this: Bane, Bane, Bane. What's about this guy? I've worked with Bane while I was a General, then seen him pushing himself in different Squads. His time in Paladin and Samurai have shaped him in the direction of a fantastic Leader. He is a Positive and Motivational Person who is always there for the Officer Staff and his Squad. Bane has been Captain in three Squads the Last year, I do not see this as a Bad thing, but something to be encouraged by. Bane would see Squads that need help and move over to go help them. When he went to Paladin and then Samurai, the Squads Thrived. He would plan and schedule as many things as possible to make sure member Retention was improving. He is always down to do a Workshop or to help members with education. He likes to implement good ideas within his Squad Samurai, where he recently became the General of! All the Officers look up to Bane as a person and someone to learn from,Bane has such a big impact within the Division, whatever party he's in he makes people Laugh but remains Professional and Willing to help. An the Different Hand, he is also the Co-Head of Productions, and a Member of Marketing. Bane is doing an Fantastic Job within the Community and has became a True Leader.

FadeZ isn't in as many Departments as other people. But he makes more of a impact on News or in a single Department than anybody else.

  5. Category: Senior Leader - (Board members, Senior Directors) Gamertag: KSI FuzzyMeep 7 Forums Account Link: @I am FuzzyMeep™ Reasons they deserve this award: KSI FuzzyMeep 7 deserves this award for holding this community together we call KSI. When first coming into KSI I first met him as a Lieutenant in LW in my Game Night I was running and didn't even know he was so high in the ranks. He has never let the 7 and his rank go to his head. When I have had questions in the past he has answered them for me in a timely matter. I'm literality sitting in a party right now and he is going above and beyond to listen to a member and giving his feedback. Member Retention and care like this member of this community is very hard to come by and appreciated. Thank You for also being there for me as well during hard times and joining parties I've invited you too. My hats off to you my friend. Category: Director Gamertag: KSI Ronin 77 Forums Account Link: @Mr. North Forward Reasons they deserve this award: KSI Ronin 77 has done a lot for KSI from Member Retention to coming up with new ways to make the community better. I will speak for what I know. When I returned to LW in 2017 he was coming up with a plan to merge DR & LW. This Merge went over very well and made one of the strongest divisions in KSI. Even after the merge was complete his great diligence with DW shined through and through. He made sure he was at all the meetings and even made appearances at game nights to find the strong members he believed that could make DW thrive. He did everything in his power, while also juggling work and everyday life to be there for the members of the division. He spent a great deal of time writing up the Ronin Shocklord's Recruiting 101 and Training notes and I for one found these notes a valuable tool. Running Lead 101 classes was one of the best experiences I had with him because he didn't just read from the notes. Thank You for all you do for the community Mr. Conversation Era. Category: Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Gary 7 Forums Link: @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award: I will start this off with the reasons I believe KSI Gary 7 deserves the "Of The Year" award. His consistent positive attitude in this community we call KSI followed by the kind of morale building attitude that anything in this world needs to be successful. I have seen him come up the ranks from Captain all the way to Director where he sits in KSI at the moment. He has never let the 7 in his gamertag go to his head either. He is always hanging out with members trying to instill the ways that have made him so successful. I have claimed this member of KSI as my mentor and for good reasons. I don't believe there has been a situation that he hasn't thought of a great way to handle and always followed to rules with great diligence. My hats off to you for your time and commitment to this community Sir. Keep up the great work. Category: Co-Div Leader Gamertag: KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award: This member of DW is to true definition of member retention. He is always around to answer any questions and always meeting new members of the division in Gamenights/Workshops. KSI Havoc 7 is the reason why I succeeded in the community by always giving me new ways to challenge myself when I thought I couldn't do it any better. There have been many times he has helped me in the community when everything was falling apart and I couldn't balance KSI and my everyday life anymore. Above all he does in KSI I will always admire him for the help he gave me when my Aunt and Mother passed away this year. He was one of the reasons I recovered quickly. Always reminding me the SGT rank is just as important as his and to take care of myself first. Keep up the great work you do for this community Sir. Thank you for always treating everyone equal. Category: Founder Gamertag: KSI xKing 77 Forums Link: @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award: KSI xKing77 is the biggest reason why I came back to KSI when it was still LW. King is always around when I needed him in different situations when we needed him the most. It didn't matter if he was at work or not. He would jump into parties on his lunch break and make sure everything in the division he was over was doing ok. Always available to teach to anyone who wanted to know the in and outs of KSI and the grey areas. He helped the squads he was over achieve total greatness and I truly believe without him that DW wouldn't be half as successful as it is now. This member always tried his best to make it to gamenights, meetings, and workshops to the best of his ability. Thank You for all you do for the community in Clan Ops and Web Ops. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag: KSI VENUM 7 Forums Link: @VENUM 7 Reasons they deserve this award: When I first really got to know this KSI member I was just coming back into the community. He really knows when its time for business and when its time to joke around. As I moved up the ranks with him I had the pleasure to work with him on a daily basis to the first ever squad split in DW. If I ever needed someone to talk to about what the squad needed, who to promote or mentor next he was there. He worked diligently to make sure the squad was having fun with his great member retention. If the squad ever had a question he didn't know the answer to he made sure to find the answer in a timely matter. Once he mastered being a General he moved on the be a Co-Founder which is his current rank in the community. Keep up the great work that you do for the community and don't let anybody stand in your way. Thank You for the experience. Category: Captain Gamertag: KSI Bane 7 Forums Account Link: @King Bane After transferring over to Paladin from Hannibal this KSI member really showed the me what being a Captain is all about. Anything I ever asked him to do, he did it without even giving me a hard time. He hosted squad meeting when I couldn't and was a all around great addition to the officer staff. Honestly this member doesn't get the credit he deserves and you truly have to work next to him to see. It's the little things. When we went on lock down and we had to follow the rules he was always making sure that everyone was abiding by them to keep the squad safe. Recently this member got promoted in productions to the Co-head spot and General of Samurai. I can't wait to see what he has up his sleeve. Keep up the great work Sir. Category: SGT/SSGT Gamertag: KSI xMinion Forums Account Link: @KSI xMinion Reasons they deserve this award : From the first moment KSI xMinion came into the community she has had the drive to do great things in the community. When she was promoted to SSGT she has hosted game nights to get the squad together. She is also always there for the members of the squad to make sure they are having a good day and if not she is willing to go the extra mile to brighten up their day. She has learned a lot by asking questions on how the community works and has never gave up. Now she holds the rank of 4CPT and I for one can't wait to see the things she brings to the table in the coming months. Thank You for your work in Samurai and all the party invites to keep Member Retention in DW. Category: Department Member Gamertag: KSI Harmony 7 Forums Account Link: @Nikki Cola Reasons they deserve this award : KSI Harmony 7 has worked very hard on the News Team coming up with new articles to write. She brings a new light to the department with new innovative ideas and it wouldn't be the same without her. The article she wrote "PubG: A Day In The Life" was one of my favorites and after reading it I knew the department had something great. Then she took on the challenge of doing member spotlights and these articles are more difficult to write because you have to get the exact details correct. She didn't stop there, she blew it out of the water with the articles interviewing our new CEO and going on to representing KSI and its departments. Keep up the great work its always a good read! Category: Department Head Gamertag: KSI Nebula 7 Forums Account Link: @Nebula 7 While I was in the marketing department and working together with this member he came up with great ideas to get participation to a new high in DW. Honestly to department wouldn't have taken off the way it did without him. Hosting workshops within KSI and teaching members how then can participate in these events. With the help of KSI Nebula 7 DW found ways to connect to each other and bought Member Retention to a new high. One of the greatest moments is when I found myself competing with him and it was great because it just benefited the community. Trying to out do each others posts or just trying to get the word out about something first. Thank You for the great experience Sir. Keep up the great work! DW Division of the Year!

Her time as a Lieutenant was amazing! She stepped up to the plate and got work done. At the time I had no CPTs and she stepped into her role and her and the other LT helped with doing Captain duties as well.

Member (Overall best member of the community for the year): Gamertag: KSI GHIDORAH Forums Account Link / @: @KSI HIDAN Reasons they deserve this award: Let us start with the first time that I met GHIDORAH over 6 months ago. When we first met, this guy was a chip of the ole block. He was the life of the party and understood how to have fun. He spent 5 months as an officer. During that time he was dealing with so many things in his personal life. This man has no quit in him and would not let things stop him from being the best that he could be. This man not just as an officer, but as a member as well took the time to break down barriers and be a friend to everyone that he came into contact with. It may seem like a difficult task, but GHIDORAH worked hard to help the members spread their wings and meet new people. He did not do any of this to make himself look better or because he was an officer. He did it because he understood his "Why". GHIDORAH's "Why" for being in this community, is to bring people together and make sure they are having a good time. Even when he personally was struggling and not having a great day, he would still put a smile in that voice and be there to cheer up the family(KSI). Thank you KSI GHIDORAH for all that you have done this year for the squad and this community! #IWouldLikeToMakeAStatment

  8. Name: KSI xMrGumpx7 Link to forums account: @KSI xMr Gumpx 7 Award/Achievement: Head Hunter, Silver (Donor), Education 101 Graduate, Gamerscore Hoarder, Fall Classic 2017. Spirit Week ( 2014, 2015, 2017) Reason/Evidence: KSI xMrGumpx 7 Well I guess the best Place to start is when I came over to the xbox 1 and met Gump as a Captain in Death DL squad. I came over from Insane to help him with the squad. We very quickly became friends and there wasn’t a day that went by that we weren’t in a party together. Gump explained that he had a lot of health issues in the past that had kept him from being a General again. He explained that he had been in a coma for 3-3 ½ months fighting for his life due to having blood clots in his intestines and that he had lost both his legs. He was climbing the ranks yet again in DL. Gump really wanted to make it to a 7’s spot, if he could just stay healthy enough to. He had said he had joined KSI back in 2013 and again in 2014. I was his General for awhile and he was an officer that not only cared for his squad but for KSI. If there was anything I was unsure of he would set me straight real quick. Although he was a lower rank then me, Gump had been around a while and he helped me to become a good leader. Gump was there when you needed a friend or if only to game with. I finally moved up and he was able to become a Gen of the Death Squad and He had managed to keep his health in check, for awhile at least. On June 8th of 2017 Gump was hospitalized again for 3 blood clots ( 1 in his lung, 1 in his intestines, & 1 in his bowels). It was the end of June 2017, when he was able to get back home and back to KSI. I had been unable to get an officer to work as hard as he had. So he came back off his Medical LOA and took back his Gen seat and continued on his work with his squad. Finally on Oct 21, 2017 KSI xMrGumpx was able to reach his Goal! I named him as a CO FOUNDER IN DL! Yes, Gump finally got what he had worked so Hard for. He was so Proud when he sent me his new Gamertag: KSI xMrGumpx 7. Gump continued to set goals for himself that he was going to take my Founder spot next. But in Nov 2017 He met with yet another fight with UIT, and Bladder infections. Because this issued had became a continued issue, they told him that he would need a kidney transplant. He went through the testing only to be told that he would not be a candidate for a replacement. So he started having Dialysis 2 to 3 times a week, but even though he was drained from the treatment he continued to be a important influence in his CO FO position. Jan. 10, 2018 Gump was hospitalized get again for the infections and like always Gump’s Mom got in his xbox to let us know what had happened and give us updates about him. By Jan. 17, 2018 he was home and back at it gaming, in parties and working toward his goal. Even though the dialysis and infections were taking their toll on Gump, He did the Hardest thing he had to do. What was best for KSI and DL, Gump Once again stepped down to a SGT in Death Once More. He continued to get in parties with me and just be there when he didn’t feel like playing. He fought the good fight until Feb 21, 2018! Gump’s body had all it could take and we lost him. Gump’s Mother is a Strong woman, She got on his xbox with the help of his brother and told us he was gone. KSI xMrGumpx 7 loved life, KSI and all his friends, and family! Gump’s favorite saying that I can remember “THAT’S RIGHT.” For ALL this I believe he belongs in KSI DL HALL OF FAME!

  9. @KSIdontask @KSI Havoc 7 @Nebula 7 @King Bane @KSIxPapi77 @KSIfiremomma7 @KSI FluffyPup 7 @KSI Ace 7 @Mr. North Forward @KSI xKing 77 Category: Sgt/SSGT Gamertag: KSI DntaskimAwfl Reason: Don’t ask I’m a waffle ( ) is one hell of a member. She joined this community and really took to it. She has encompassed what it is to be a community member at first and with in a few months a community leader. Her rank may not represent the highest of positions in this community but the amount of people that seek her out to have a talk or get advice is proof enough, she def does that job before she gets it. Now that she as started to progress the ranks a bit, I look forward to her continued momentum forward and her daily self-improvement Category: Capt. Gamertag: KSI Bane 7 Reason: Bane is one of the strongest leaders amongst the lower ranks of clan ops that we have, his dedication to not only one of the strongest divisions in this community as well as the squad within that, but also his work within the dept realm, he is a clear-cut contender for future senior leadership. He speaks well and knowledgeful of the subject matter at hand and some how deals with nebula, king and havoc on the reg. which isn’t easy Category: Gen Gamertag: KSI Nebula 7 Reason: Nebula is one of the longest reigning generals within the recent history of this community. During his run he started as a young lad, who had a lot to prove and much to improve on. Within the first half of his year long tour he began to “get it”. The squad improved, the officer staff grew, and the team worked as one. During the last final stretch of his tenure Havoc and Gary did quite a bit to get him ready for co-founder, He is a strong willed highly intelligent member who has a bright future for him where ever he goes and whatever he does. Can’t wait to see what he does when he opens Plebs Army Category: Co Fo Gamertag: KSIxPapi77 Reason: Papi is one of those leaders that does not get his name out there enough, he is an extremely well versed and strong leader. His contributions to EO have been next to none and are one of the reasons the div has had so many time periods of success. I don’t always get to talk to him, nor see his day to day activity however I do hear nothing but great things about him. Category: Founder Gamertag: KSI FluffyPup 7 Reason: Fluffy is a wonderful person and a strong leader. DM is one of the longest running highest preforming divisions we have, and it is def in part during the last reign due to fluffy. The level of comradery and friendship within the division is not easy to continue without having the passion level as high as pup Category: Div ldr Gamertag: KSI Fire momma 7 Reason: Momma is one of those “once in a life time” leaders, when I first met her, I was not sure what style leadership she possessed but I knew that what ever it was, it was effective. She has since proven to not only be a strong mentor and effective division but a motherly figure and guiding advice and hand to most in her division…but do not piss her off lol, she is strong willed, scary when angry and as fair as it comes. She has continued to impress me, and I am sure it won’t stop anytime soon Category: Dir Gamertag: KSI Ronin 7 Reason: While his run in this position was towards the beginning of the year and people sometimes forget that, Ronin was one of the break out leaders of that team, he covered several different divisions, all needing a unique amount of attention and leadership and through that proved himself over and over again that despite being a little…… strange (lawl) he has a way with mentoring and leading others, and thus earning himself apart of the senior team and the Bod. What he does is different then others, but it works due to his knowledge and work ethic. Category: Snr Ldr Gamertag: KSI Ace 7 Reason: the fact that ace has not accumulated several of these awards through out the year is….well because he hasn’t been super active throughout his entire run in ksi lol, but in the last couple years he has gone from the person who does the taxes, gives input in the board meetings, chills in streams and admin things to a regular stay and constant help within the community both forums and clan ops related. He has gone above and beyond expectation and has been the front runner of the future of the community’s websites and CMS. His “ground up” approach to redoing and reworking what we must bring us to the next level has been time consuming and a long road, but he has done it none the less. He recently went to COO and it is well deserved, for someone who spent a long time as the man behind the Curtin it is a pleasure to see him interacting with the community, he has been apart of for 11 years. Category: Forum staff Gamertag: KSIxKingx77 Reason: Forum staff is never an easy choice, there are many admin who do a lot of work, as well as mods and senior mods. But King has gone above and beyond during his mod and Join area run. After he left clan ops a while back, he stuck around and was one of the few running the join area, his movement to mod team was well deserved and just another proving ground of his work ethic and love for this community. He can be a pain in the ass, but he is a solid member and hopefully a future senior mod on this community Category: Member Gamertag: KSI Havoc 7 Reason: Jeez, what category to put havoc under…should it be Dept head OTY? For his work and drive to build up what is shaping up to be one of the major areas of the community (Education, Lead, PO, HR just to name a few). Or his work within DW Getting founder or division leader of the year, coming back from death (not really but kind of), being interjected into that div for a “temp” stay, which ended up becoming a second home for him, leading to his spot as the top dog. Or senior leader due to him being placed as an Ambassador to the BoD for his work in education and PO. Well I couldn’t decide and then I occurred to me, that member is the best choice for Member OTY, He is in almost every area of the community, assists any and all members in need, works on depts, divs and with input to the board. I am happy to see havoc back in KSI and proud to see him in all the positions he is in

  10. Category: Senior Leader Gamertag; KSI Ace 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Ace 7 Reasons they deserve this award - KSI Ace 7 is someone that I was always aware of, but did not personally know. I knew of his legendary conquests, goals and his tax filing skills. However it was not until earlier this year that I finally met Ace properly and started to learn what this man does for this community. He to my knowledge has not even complained about not receiving recognition or credit for the many things he does for us, to date the most notable of which is the G15 Omega! Ace, while he is one of the most laid back persons on the board is an amazing support structure for me. I know that should I need an ear to listen to me, then have me in stiches after words. Category: Director Gamertag; KSI Badkitty 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Myself and kitty don’t see eye to eye a lot of the time, however in her time as a director I always knew that when situations arose – and she was involved it would be handled correctly with dignity and everyone involved would know that the decisions she came to were morally sound. Earlier this year she was placed in a situation no Director wanted to be put in, and had to put her foot down on a divisional leadership team. Long story short she held the moral high ground and never let the abuse get to her. While she is no longer a director, I feel in my years in KSI she is one of the best I have seen. Category: Division leader Gamertag; KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Gary. While I feel this is all that needs to be said of this member, I will of course delve into him some more. Myself and Gary have worked together now for many a year, He was my productions head for a long time, and we learnt together, bled together, perhaps shed a tear or two together – however should you ask, I will deny it – KSI Gary 7 has while he was a division leader set a bar very high on standards for how division leaders should be. He kept his distance from being involved in officer staffs, but kept involved enough to know when he needed to coordinate his divisional staff to intervene and get things back on track. He was a model Division leader and moulded his staff below him to ensure smooth transition should he no longer be around the division, and look, he’s now a Director! Category: Founder Gamertag; KSI Havoc 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award - KSI Havoc 7 has always been someone I have been around during my KSI career. He saw my high points and my lowest points and has always stood by me, and numerous others during it. He is the best support structure I have ever seen both in my professional career and KSI. That aside I have seen Havoc go from strength to strength in DW, Providing an amazing environment in which the entirety of KSI strives to achieve. He continually ensures that everyone is happy, developing and moving themselves and their peers forwards! Category: General Gamertag; KSI hatter 7 Forums Account Link / @Hatter 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Hatter has never had an easy time within this community, however she always fights for her members and doesn’t back down where they are concerned. She is always running workshops and training sessions continually to ensure that whether she is there with her members or not, they will be best placed to move forwards and have ensured success should they want it. Category: Captain Gamertag; KSI Greenday 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Greenday 7 Reasons they deserve this award - KSI Greenday 7 has my nomination for captain of the year, not for the dedication and continual push for progress her squad and division but for the determination and passion showed in the face of adversity. Greenday continually shows how much she cares for this community, she has experienced so much strife and hardship that most normal people would get up and leave over. Earlier this year a group of misfits decided that due to a large donation that Greenday had made to the community that had supported and helped her through a very tough time in her life. She suffered immense abuse however she persevered through it and rose above to be the better person. Category: Member Gamertag; KSI VeriiTas 7 Forums Account Link / @VeRiiTaS 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Veriitas is my choice for Member of the year. He is going to be very upset with me for nominating him however he doesn’t choose my nominations! Veriitas is a Senior Director and one hell of one too! He is always involved within his divisions, gaming with the members and teaching and ensuring that everyone is happy and progressing forwards. However regardless of this, the reason I am nominating Riita is for a much more personal reason. During my current tenure as a Board member I have needed a support structure, for advice, idea brainstorming and having someone be there for me. Riita has filled that role for me. He is always on hand when I want to remove the hair from my head. He has also been there for me with my recent issues that I have encountered away from the xbox which, between him and Fuzzy have kept me sane. From the very bottom of my heart, I appreciate you. Category: Forums Staff (Mods, Senior Mods, Admins) Gamertag; KSI Riiot 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI RiiOT 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Riiot is on it. He is always doing permissions, checking things that are going on and making them right. He never misses a trick and is the up and coming admin! Riiot doesn’t get frustrated at my, and others, silly questions. He pushes past the silly and lets us know in our terms what is going on and how he is going to help. Category: Department Head Gamertag; KSI December 77 Forums Account Link / @December 77 Reasons they deserve this award - December is my up and coming superstar. He has ambition beyond his position and isn’t afraid to show it. When I made December my News & HSI Department head after the removal of the previous department head, he didn’t skip a step. He has quickly and efficiently reorganised the entire department and is currently building it up towards the coveted department split. He rebranded the History team to give it a larger function in the community rather than just gathering old information. He has developed and nurtured multiple department members to prepare them for the next step in Department leadership. While he gives me countless headaches and fills my head with more information than my small brain can handle, he ensures that at all times I am filled in on his activity’s, no matter how large or small. Category: Department Member Gamertag; KSI bane 7 Forums Account Link / @King Bane Reasons they deserve this award - Bane has for some time been an undervalued member of this community. He found his place within the productions team some time ago and had remained very quiet within it. However he quickly started to excel when He was given the Happy hour team. He is now working with Skarzx to progress further and prepare to take the team to the next level.

  11. Category: Senior Leader Gamertag: KSI Ronin 77 Forums Account Link: @Mr. North Forward Reasons they deserve this award: Coming into DW, working underneath Ronin i noticed one thing immediately he talks a lot, I MEAN A LOT, Bringing memories of college and sitting through a lecture the key difference being that a lot of the things that Ronin would say actually had application in my current style of leadership. When Ronin talks there is always something he is trying to explain or get across, even his silly metaphors hold meaning. He is the type of leader who will challenge what you think and flip everything you think you know upside down. While certainly unique when compared to his peers Ronin surly stands out as one of the most thoughtful and forward thinking leaders that the community has to offer. it would be hard to find a leader currently in the community who has not been impacted by Ronin in some way. Category: Director Gamertag: KSI Cherry 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Cherry 7 Reasons they deserve this award: So Cherry i have really gotten to know over the past couple months and she was quickly become one of my closest advisers. Not only do i value her for her knowledge and experience in KSI but also for her many attributes from outside the community, bringing a unique and fresh perspective to any conversation she is a part of. Her words always carry great weight, always ready to jump into any problem and work towards solutions. She is definitely in my opinion one of the most well equipped leaders we have in the community. She will be monumental to the progress made in KSI going forward. Category: Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award: One of the newer leaders within KSI, Gary has certainly made himself a household name. with a positive and upbeat attitude, Gary makes his presence known in everything he is a part of. not only did i get to see DW's growth from one of the smallest divisions in the community to being one of the most successful i also got to witness Gary's transformation as a leader. When i first met Gary i wasn't quite convinced he knew what he was doing, thankfully he was able to change my opinion on this, i soon realized that even Gary was handed a VERY VERY VERY Sh**** situation yet Gary was able to turn it around Not only improving the division but himself as well. If you were to ask him any of this he would probably deny a lot of it but his confidence has grown since iv met him and i am proud to see all that he has accomplished.Divine Warriors would not be the division it is today without the hard work and dedication of the one and only Wild Bill. Category: Founder Gamertag: KSI xKing 77 Forums Account Link: @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award: who doesn't know who King is? King not only has a strong appearance within DW but in the community as a whole. King and I have not always seen eye to eye and this has nothing to do with the massive height difference between us, but because we have two different ideologies. For most people this would be a bad thing to have two people who have two very different mindsets working together as a team, but against all odds King and I run arguably one of the most Active, energetic, down to earth and enjoyable divisions in the entire history of KSI. The two of us working together because of our different attitudes and approaches make an amazing team. In every regard King is one of the best founders within the community, running the recruiting and training program within DW with a masterful Precision always making sure everything is done up to date and on time. King has had one hell of a 2018 and my one hope for King is that in 2019 that he makes the year his own. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag: KSI VENUM 7 Forums Account Link: @VENUM 7 Reasons they deserve this award: No matter how great of a leader we are the is always more to learn, more to experience, and more work to do and no one understands this better then Venum. it takes a lot to surprise me but during Venum's time as an officer within samurai he did just that. iv had few people during my time in KSI that have approached me in the way that Venum did.not just seeking information, but seeking a better version of himself. what started out as a simple question of "How do i become a better leader?" has evolved into an ongoing dialogue between this individual and myself. as many members of DW could tell you Venum is one of the most compassionate leaders around, not simply just reacting to situations but proactively preparing himself and others to handle very eventual outcome of any situation, never fearing to be the bad guy, but always ready to be the good guy. Venum is a man of many talents always able to adapt to any situation. Venum is always able to do anything that is required of him. Venum is one of my most trusted peers and someone i look at to succeed me when i am no longer here. Venum is truly a leader here for his members. This will always be his why. Category: General Gamertag: KSI Nebula 7 Forums Account Link: @Nebula 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Certainly one of the most tenured generals in the history of this community, I have no doubt Nebula could write a book on his time as General. In my time in KSI I have promoted, demoted, trained, and mentored a large variety of generals throughout the community. While they all varied greatly, Nebula is definitely... unique. nebula has a huge heart he genuinely cares for all those around him. and if ever he does make a mistake he will be the first one to try to repair it. welcoming and kind it doesn't matter where your from or who you are nebula will be there as a friend to you. during his time as general nebula struggled hard to rebuild his squad several times. a few times even having to build an entirely new officer staff from scratch. nebula may be many things but one thing he is not is a quitter. he will continue to move forward even if he doesn't want to. because he knows that his true purpose for himself to move forward is not his own needs and wants but those of the members that he is responsible for . his time as a general molded him into the leader that he is today. while future generations of KSI may forget the long reign of KSI xNebula, i know i for one will never forget. Category: Captain Gamertag: KSI xKamikaze Forums Account Link: @KSI xKamikaze Reasons they deserve this award: Kamikaze has been a staple of this division over the coarse of its run, even members who have not met him know who he is. A lot of this is due to the strength of his voice, and presence within the division. When in samurai has a captain he was diligent, hardworking caring, supportive, and overall a kind individual. Along with the General, KSI VENUM 7, Kam helped bring Samurai to a split and soon after took over as a general of Paladin. During his time as Captain is when I truly saw this individual shine. He went above and beyond, always standing out from others in every situation. Category: Lieutenant Gamertag: KSI Artifice Forums Account Link: @KSI x Artifice Reasons they deserve this award: When artifice came into this division we did not like each other. Most times we we're in a party it was an argument or a correction of bad behavior. At that time I thought for sure that he would leave KSI within a month, however it's when the unthinkable happens that people surprise you the most. When his home squad of Elysium fell apart and there was a Mass Exodus if the leadership within the squad Artifice was one of the few who stayed behind. He was certainly the underdog and not the one who people expected to take charge, however I think blew away everyone's expectations. Although he was one of the top recruiters in the division at that time he was certainly one of the most blunt people around. For most people this would be seen as artifice not caring about the feelings of others and certainly that is what I could of chosen to believe as well, but the truth is much deeper. Artifice is one of those people who cares deeply for the feelings of others. For his members and his peers artifice is always willing to lend an ear. He is also vocal, if he sees something he doesn't agree with he will be the first to tell you. His members will never realize that even though they may fear him at times he will always be there biggest advocate when they need his support. While he has since moved past the rank of lieutenant I will always remember the time when I saw this leader begin to form and I cannot wait to see where he goes in the future. Category: Sergeant/Staff Sergeant Gamertag: KSI xMinion Forums Account Link: @KSI xMinion Reasons they deserve this award: whenever your feeling down, whenever your having a day when you may not wanna get out of bed, one message from minion will make your day that much brighter. Coming into this community minion would express her dislike for recruiting but no matter how much she disliked it, if a member asked her for help she would be there at a moments notice. Minion has always had this huge capacity for empathy that goes well beyond her years. Being in tune with others emotions in a unparalleled way, with some sort of mystic sixth sense she is able to tell when someone is not having a good day without them even saying a word ,and she will be there to support you. Beyond her skills for empathy she is also an avid seeker of knowledge always looking for a way to increase what she knows. Everything she learns is not only for the benefit of herself but also for the benefit of others as she will always share everything she has learned with those around her. in her days as a Staff Sergeant many could already tell that this individual carried with her a hope for a better tomorrow. i dont know what the future holds for minion but i certainly hope that DW's future is one with minion in it. Category: Member Gamertag: KSI Hellsknight Forums Account Link: @KSI HellsKnight Reasons they deserve this award: Sometimes you get those members in the community who have a true untapped potential, the potential to be one of the best officers in the community, Hellsknight is definitely one of those members. Hellsknight goes above and beyond in everything that is asked of him, even when he is still learning. When he was only just a corporal, he would help the squad in any way he could. For months he sat as a member within Paladin, just going about his day never complaining, always just being there. When I took over as acting general of paladin I saw so much of my former self in this member, he was quiet, shy, and only spoke when spoken too. However this soon all changed. KSI VENUM 7 and myself took HellsKnight under our wings and trained him in the ways of KSI. he is now easily one of the top officers in my Division and I couldn't be more proud. I will always remember the months that HellsKnight spent being a dedicated member of this community, waiting for someone to simply reach out. Category: Forums Staff Gamertag: KSI FadeZ 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI FadeZ 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Fadez is one of those people who does not place a lot of value in himself. Day to day he goes about his life and throughout his KSI Career believing that he himself does not make much of an impact, however i can strongly and firmly state that he is one of the few individuals that has had a true and lasting impact on not only how i am as a leader but how i am as a person. Being a Join/Rejoin Moderator requires you to take a step back from everything you have experienced and learned throughout your time in KSI to uphold a neutral position in regards to applicants seeking entry into KSI. now many people would approach this position by saying they are objective and claim to have no biases but this mentality as a whole is false and thankfully Fadez is one of the people that understands this. Fadez understands where he has come from in KSI, the things he has experienced, the things he has done, he knows when approaching a situation if he has to much emotional attachment to it and knows when to take a step back. He will always be able to communicate his experience with individuals and do his best to provide both sides of the story not just the one that benefits him. Being a join Moderator requires you to have true self awareness in order to be effective in your position and in this regard Fadez excels. While it may be one of the areas of KSI the decisions he has made through his job silently resonate throughout the foundation of this community. i dont know if he will ever get the appreciation that he deserves but i truly hope that all will come to realize the time and effort that Fadez puts into this community every single day. Category: Department Member Gamertag: KSI December 77 Forums Account Link: @December 77 Reasons they deserve this award: Ive been around KSI for quite a few years and for better or for worse many of those years i had no clue who the hell December was but thankfully 2018 was the year i finally got to meet December and realize just how much of a powerhouse he is, i dont know if he has a limit on how much he can do but i am certainly gonna find out what that limit is. As a leader in KSI iv always had a hard time sharing my responsibilities with others but December has more then earned my trust in the short time ive known him. I know i can depend on him no matter what the situation is and just like i will always have his back i know he will always have mine. While it may not be commonly known December is the one who created the current performance officer guidelines in use as well as being instrumental in the creation of a new program coming to KSI in 2019. On the human Resources side of my department December has become a huge resource he is Kind, Compassionate, diligent and empathetic, always being sensitive to the needs of others. No matter how much he currently has on his plate, no matter how much stress he is under, even when you think how could he possibly handle more he does, he will always be there in any way he can to to take even just a little bit of the weight off your shoulders, Captain Neck Beard is a leader i will happily follow across the sea.

  12. Senior Leader Gamertag: KSI Scotland 7 Forums: @Scotland Reasons they deserve this award: Being in departments is hard. Having a leadership role in a department is slightly tougher. Becoming a Co-Head or Department Head is even more challenging. Multiply the stress and workload of all those by 7 or 8 and you get the position of Chief Department Manager. This gentleman is one of couple people I could ever claim as a mentor in KSI. He manages a multitude of tasks every week, puts out fires left and right, is a voice of reason for upwards of 15 Department Heads and Co-Heads. And he still makes time to make sure people know they're important. Scotland is a super-soldier in KSI. It's hard to think of another Senior Leader who has been as involved and integrated in the community this past year. Director Gamertag: KSI BadKitty 7 Forums: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasons they deserve this award: I only started to get to know BadKitty earlier this year. I'm hoping the trend continues. As far as Directors go, she definitely had to make a lot of tough calls this past fall. Her perseverance and commitment to doing the right thing is well apparent to all who were affected by the FI/CD merge. She continues to be instrumental in the community as a Senior Moderator, Department Head, AAP staff member and T&E Ambassador to the Board. She's one of the most upbeat, exciting people I've met. He contributions to KSI only barely outshine her ability to make people laugh. I'm totally stoked to work with her in 2019. Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Eyonia 7 Forums Link: @KSI Eyonia 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Eyonia could easily be nominated for Division Leader OR Co-Division Leader of the year. She's held the reins in Eternal Souls while in both positions. Eyonia has shown amazing perseverance in 2018 - giving her utmost to protect her squads and support them through many tribulations. She is a determined force wrapped in a kind spirit. I honestly doubt there has been another 7 that has been put through as much hardship and struggle as Eyonia has this past year. But... She's emerged stronger than ever. This is one Leader that should definitely be added to the Hall of Fame. Co-Division Leader Gamertag: KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Link: @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Havoc and I met this past summer. If you can call it meeting. It consisted of me spamming him with messages over the course of 5 days, finally getting an invite, only to sit in a part for 47 minutes listening to him type frantically on a keyboard. At last he stopped long enough to ask me what I wanted to talk about. I told him I wanted to know more about this thing called "Performance Operations". He kinda laughed and said a long, drawn out "Well......." I think that's where it all started. When I think of Havoc, I think of innovation. Clarity. And purpose. He makes plans, he follows through, and he impacts members left and right. If you want an abridged version of what he's done in 2018, look at Performance Operations - KSI's "4th Branch" - and how much it's grown over the past months. Current and ex-Leaders in the community, working together to assist the divisions as they evolve. If you want to see the bigger picture of what Havoc has accomplished, look at Divine Warriors. Look at the entirety of Divine Warriors. The activity, the passion, the legacy they've created this year. His leadership has been an obvious and driving force behind DW's growth. And Havoc has been more than just a leader in his division. He's been a rock FOR his division. The security of knowing he's there and that he cares, in my opinion, is the main reason he's earned the trust of so many. It takes a special kind of person to remain humble and true when their success is so inescapably seen by a community of two thousand members. Havoc is that person. Co-Founder Gamertag: KSI M3NTALIST 7 Forums Link: @KSI M3NTALIST 7 Reasons they deserve this award: The past year I've watched this dude progress through his KSI career with awesome strides. He's risen from Lieutenant to Captain to General to Co-Founder. There's almost no one in his division who hasn't been affected by him in a positive way. M3NTALIST has taken the skills he developed as a successful General and continued to apply them as he mentors and oversees his squads as LS's current Founder. He's made a name for himself as one who isn't swayed by friendships or favoritism. Fairness, dedication and humility are some of the many qualities that have earned M3NTALIST respect in his division, as well as the respect of many members in the community as a whole. I'm very excited to see where this gentleman's path in KSI takes him. General Gamertag: KSI Hatter 7 Forums Link: @Hatter 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Hatter was one of the best 2 Generals Last Strike saw in 2018. (The other would be the gentleman in the previous nomination.) She brings immense passion and dedication to whatever she does. Hatter isn't the epitome of what a General should be. She IS what Generals, Captains and Lieutenants dream about being while they're asleep. On top of that, she's an awesome recruiter, an experienced trainer and a cornerstone of wisdom and loyalty all rolled into one. "Hatter is a multi-squad splitter, a Grifball junkie, a Warlock by trade and a rockstar Mom of 3." Any division that has Hatter as one of it's Generals is guaranteed to have at least one squad that grows, develops and unites as a family. I'm very thankful she's continuing her work in the community as an officer in Eternal Souls. Member Gamertag: KSI FadeZ 7 Forums: @KSI FadeZ 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Member of the Year is a big deal. I'm not nominating FadeZ because he's an awesome member of our community. I'm not nominating him because he's the most dependable and ambitious writer the News Team has had all year. I'm not nominating him because of his kind spirit or his charismatic personality. I'm not nominating him because he'll talk to anyone about their problems, no matter how bad they are or how late it is. I'm not nominating him because he works his a** off to improve himself, his squad, his division and his departments. And I'm not nominating him because he strives to better this community every single day he's a part of it. I'm nominating him because he is and does all of these things. Forums Staff Gamertag: KSI xKing 77 Forums: @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award: This dude keeps the forums safe. He's like the big guy in the Thor movies who has the sword that controls the time-warp thing that lets people into Asgard. I forget his name. Anyway. Ever since King became a Forums mod, he's been one of, if not THE most vigilant forums mod we have. He catches issues almost instantly. He keeps the members of our community safe. And his punctuality and dedication as a Join/Rejoin mod is second to none. King is hands down, the "forums guy". #chatboxbanner Department Member Gamertag: KSI Greenday 7 Forums: @KSI Greenday 7 Reasons they deserve this award: This young lady has grown more in 2018 than I have ever seen anyone in KSI grow. Ever. She's transformed from a quiet, reserved department member to a fully developed, insanely driven and intensely dedicated Co-Head. She manages staff, mentors new department hires and continually inspires those around her. Her great love of KSI history has given her a passion for work that is evident to anyone in the community. HSI has steadily grown into an almost brand new department, mainly due to her contributions and work ethic. When I think of the best, most persevering department member I've known this year, it's without a doubt KSI Greenday 7.

  13. Director Gamertag; KSI Trendies 7 Forums Account Link / @ @KSI Trendies 7 Reasons they deserve this award - We've had three directors this year in DW. An ever since Trendies came into DW as our director. He has been a definite leader to the members. He attends an participates in many of our events such as meetings, workshops, an game nights. Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Gary 7 Account Link @KSI Gary 7 Reason why they deserve this award- So for a long time it was only Gary who was the only 7 in LW before it became DW. But he never gave up on getting the division back on its feet. An eventually it happened under Gary's leadership we started to thrive an in his absence we are still thriving. But the success we found as a division wouldn't be possible if it wasnt for Gary laying the foundation. Co - Division Leader Gamertag KSI HAVOC 7 Account Link @KSI Havoc 7 Reason why they deserve the award Havoc has been to the top he has seen it all. But he is now here with us now. An ever since he's been here he has been one of the driving forces of the division. Although he does have his hand in a lot of cookie jars his first priority is DW an the members. He definitely does go above an beyond for the division. Founder Gamertag KSI xKing 77 Link @KSI xKing 77 Reason why they deserve I met king in 2014 in ES as the General of Wicked. An he eventually became my cofounder. But King is one of those special kind of leaders that can get you motivated take me for example when I joined LW last year I was definitely forgotten about but on his first day here he reached out to me an told me we we are going to get the ball rolling an we took over Samurai an the rest is history. But he has done the same thing for many squads an divisions an I definitely see him being a greater leader than he already is. Co - Founder Gamertag KSI Nebula 7 Link @Nebula 7 Reason why they deserve the award For the longest Nebula was one of my biggest competitors in DW to get the elusive CF spot. And I really didn't associate with him when I was Gen. But whenever I was his CF I had the opportunity to actually get to know him. An I was thoroughly surprised he was dedicated to his squad an the division as a whole. So when the day came for him to be promoted to CF it was definitely well deserved. An during his time as a CF he has the same drive he had as a Gen if not more. An I look forward to the day when its gonna be me an him running DW. General Gamertag KSI xKamikaze Link @KSI xKamikaze Reason why they deserve the award Kamikaze is the definition of KSI I have met many people in 4 years of KSI life but I havent met one like Kam. What can I say about my right hand man Kam that hasn't been said before. He took Paladin after the Samurai split an under his leadership its numbers rose tremendously. But growing squads isn't the only Kam does hes a excellent mentor to anybody who needs advice or guidance. I truly can see him being a 7 one day. Captain Gamertag KSI Bane 7 Link @King Bane Reason why they deserve the award Bane Bane Bane what can you say about Bane well is definitely one of the hardest working captains I have seen in a long time could have been Gen twice but in all seriousness he busts his ass everyday to make sure everyone is doing what there supposed to be doing an having fun all while managing his productions duties. Definitely a true leader in the Division an I feel he can do anything he sets his mind to. Lieutenant Gamertag KSI Majesty Link @KSI Majesty Reason why they deserve the award Majesty a fairly new person to KSI but not a newbie when it comes to Gaming Communities. But ever since she joined she has worked her butt off to get to where she is. An she makes sure everyone is treated as a member an not a number. I look forward to what she can do in 2019. SGT/SSGT Gamertag KSI xMinion Link @KSI xMinion Reason why they deserve the award Hmm she is definitely not a Minion but rather a leader. A very dedicated member to the community an division. Gets on host workshops gamenights an just hangs out with anybody. Now mind you she lives on the other side of the world an she still is able to get this done effectively. Has all the potential to be leading her own squad one day an I can it in the near future. Member Gamertag KSI DarkQueen7 Link @KSI DarkQueen 7 Reason why they deserve the award DQ as I like to call her transferred over here from CD an the moment she got here she immediately got to work an with her help we got Paladin back up an running within a few weeks. A powerhouse recruiter a fantastic leader an most of all a great member One More Thing Do You Even KSI Bro?

  16. KSI 2020 Of The Year Award Nominations Senior Leader (Board Of Directors, Senior Directors): Gamertag: KSI TexAngel 7 Forums Account Link / @: @KSI TexAngel 77 Reasons they deserve this award: Since becoming a Senior Director she has been all over the place. Voice for Clan Ops and yet still on the battlefield helping revamp and lead divisions. Taking over so many hats due to a diminished Director team and still chugging forward. The level of stress that Senior Leadership experiences can make anyone want to run the other way. Her resilience has stood still through it all. Truly one of the best Senior leaders we have. Director: Gamertag: KSI Swag 77 Forums Account Link / @: @KSI Swag 77 Reasons they deserve this award: Swag has truly excelled in his position as a Director. He has been helping SO many divisions since his promotion. He never backs down from a challenge and is always willing and wanting to meet new members and play with anyone. His fun goofy Uncle vibe makes others smile and laugh. He has made positive changes to the community due to his leadership. Without Swag’s mentorship, there would not be as many incredible leaders here in KSI. ALL HAIL THE PICKLE KING! Co-Founder: Gamertag: KSI Slick 7 Forums Account Link / @: @KSI Slick 7 Reasons they deserve this award: 2020 has been the evolution year of KSI Slick 7. His successful progression up the ranks were a sight to see. So much unlocked potential building. I saw this “X factor” like none other in this man. Before he even made a name for himself in his squad, I had this deep pit in my stomach and I can remember vividly telling my fellow 7s, “This is the guy, this is the future leadership in KSI”. Sure enough he became a much deserved CoFounder. During his time as a CoFo, Slick has never backed down from a challenge to big or small. He is a logistical beast, on point in every situation, level-headed and extremely professional. He was acting General in Knights SL twice and each time he rebuilt and trained the officer corps, he grew the squad, keep it healthy and gave it his all. He wanted to give it one last hoorah and he generated a hell of an active and healthy squad. He is always on his tasks and is a beam of light in SL. Slick is highly respected in SL and his mentorship has built up 2 more CoFos and a General in Templar since they were CPTs and LTs. He plays with anyone and everyone, gives his super useful and wise counsel, and truly treats others as brothers and sisters. This guy can not only lead the horse to water, but he can also damn near make him drink too due to his positive and uplifting nature. From his incredible analogies that bring a comedic yet clear understanding, to his drive to better the community and create amazing leaders. I am extremely proud to have been and still be in his presence each day. The sky is the limit with this man. General: Gamertag: KSI N3WERA 7 Forums Account Link / @: @KSI N3WERA 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Out of every General I have experienced; being a General came naturally to N3WERA. There was NOTHING that this man didn’t do. He was always on time with Gen Check Ins, meeting notes, Omega, etc. Always training, always recruiting, and continued to build a badass and STRONG powerhouse squad. Templar needed NO micromanagement. It was a well oiled and fully running machine. N3WERA helped build one of SL’s strongest officer corps. You tell him “Hey I’d love to see 5 recruit this week” He would be like bet and he’d get his team to crank out more than you ever asked for. Templar was about 120 members strong at one point. The largest squad in 1.5 years of SL’s history. Logistically – God Tier. Potential – Unmatched. Loyal Friend – Like none other. Captain: Gamertag: KSI WuTang 7 Forums Account Link / @: @KSI Wu Tang 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Super Captain simple as that. Even with this man’s crazy 50+ hour work schedule he did not miss a single beat. He was always learning, always training, always growing into the A-MAIZE-ING leader he is today. True definition of Time Management as well. Heavy hitter in recruiting consistently and on point with every aspect a Captain does and then some. It was a no brainer that KSI WuTang 7 (formerly known as KSI WVUA11en) would be the upcoming leadership not only in his squad but in this division as well. This guy plays with anyone and will help any member catch a WarZone win. He is always there for the members and has an eagerness to do all he can for KSI. Lieutenant: Gamertag: KSI xATHENAx Forums Account Link / @: @KSI xATHENAx Reasons they deserve this award: Throughout my time in KSI, I have seen many Lieutenants. Some have come in, done well, and gone. Some have succeeded and become Gens and 7s. But… There is no one like KSI xATHENAx. The Mega Officer. I first met Athena when she was a CPL and I talked to her about the possibility of changing her name to reflect KSI. With her sort of on the fence about it, I challenged her to a night of 1v1 Gunfight to claim a $10 gift card for a name change. This is where I first experienced her positive and friendly demeanor. Even though it was close, she whooped my butt and claimed the name change. From that moment on, I encouraged her about possibly becoming an officer one day. Even though she was hesitant at first, eventually her colors and light started to shine as a SGT and she became an officer shortly afterward. As a lieutenant there was nothing that she could not do. Prestige was okay but just plateauing. Just kind of there. Not much really happening but not dead, just more or less stagnant and continuing. Now enters Athena. Suddenly this young woman revitalizes the squad in every area. No one matches her member retention, party-busting gamenights sometimes twice in a day with new members. She is welcoming to every member and her name has definitely been heard throughout the other divisions. Members from all over have gamed with her or been a part of her Gunfight gamenights. Everyone always has a great time, and they feel included. She is the squad’s head recruiter meaning she can knock out weekly squad goals herself alone not including helping others learn to do recruiting. Because of her influence, she is the face of Prestige. With that, a few incredible individuals have been directly mentored by her. KSI KHOSEC, KSI Bearded1, KSI Shrimp not including the longest potential officer list I have seen in forever. She has successfully trained many officers and even officers in other squads during her workshops. Honestly, she not only revitalized her squad but the division as a whole. She is a sponge for more knowledge, she consistently reaches out to me and the other leaders for growth advice and is continuously trying to learn as much as she can to become a good, fair, and successful leader in KSI. She attended my LEAD101s and her responses were spot on. The notes she was taking proves the incredible student she is. Her communication amongst fellow officers is above any other LT. She became a part of the Leadership Council and is involved in so much. To put it plainly, KSI xATHENAx was CoFounder-capable as an LT. I know that is a huge stretch, but it is beyond truth. I have seen her more successful as an officer and LT when it comes to squad engagement, upholding example leadership, member retention, training, learning, squad management, officer delegation, event hosting etc then most Generals and even 7s Staff I have encountered in 2020. If she continues down this path she is on, I only imagine the wonders that she will create. She had far outreached the expectations, responsibilities, and duties as a LT 100 times over. As I stated in the beginning, there are many amazing Lieutenants in KSI and many are deserving of recognition for their various achievements. But when I think of Lieutenant of the YEAR for 2020, her name resounds 1 million miles left, right, up, down, and everywhere in between. Her achievements and work ethic speak volumes about her leadership and time as a LT but there is one more I want to point out. She is a great friend to all. She is there for everyone. In good times and in bad she can be called upon. She is an example of what it means to be a family in KSI. I could not be prouder of her and foresee greatness surrounding her name. SSGT: Gamertag: KSI KHOSEC Forums Account Link / @: @COD3SILVER Reasons they deserve this award: KSI KHOSEC is part of the next generation of leadership. He has a positive and friendly attitude, he trains others as if he has been doing it for years and makes workshops personable. Recruited and mentored by KSI xATHENAx, so the quality of this man is above reproof. As a SSGT he was tackling any challenge that came his way. He is always down to learn more and even asks the hard questions that most others would miss. I can’t wait to see his leadership dynamic continue. SGT: Gamertag: KSI Sasuke08 Forums Account Link / @: @Sasuke08 Reasons they deserve this award: KSI Sasuke08 is one of the most well rounded and knowledgeable SGTs I know. From his officer experience to his continual aide to almost anyone, he is the SGT Of The Year for 2020. Due to his expertise and dedication to keep training others, he is the SL Training Officer for the division. He is always around and even though he has a 13-hour time difference since he is stationed in Japan, you can still see him partaking in so much with all the members. He is a great trainer, funny, welcoming, and friendly to all. You see him in almost every major gamenight across the division and is out there most of the time doing better member retention than officers by 10 fold. No matter what his circumstances are, he still remains a strong SGT in SL. He also was awarded SL Hall of Fame this year. That alone should tell you his dedication to the community, his knowledge and experience, and his abilities. Department Head: Gamertag: KSI Starset 7 Forums Account Link / @: @KSI Starset 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Starset has been an amazing Department Head in AAP. He is accepting of everyone, know his way around everything and due to his overall experience as a Forums Mod, former CoFounder and a Department Head, he has to be one of the most well rounded heads currently. He is always open to suggestions and helps a lot with different questions. Even when AAP was down, he was doing all he could to get a fix and push AAP to the next level. I’m excited to see what plans are in store for AAP. Department Member: Gamertag: Loyalty Paradox Forums Account Link / @: @Loyalty Paradox Reasons they deserve this award: This man right here is ON POINT. He constantly encourages AAP involvement amongst the staff and he reaches out to members to help them obtain new awards. He is pushing announcements throughout the division, answers any questions about the Department and has been great at driving conversation and communication in AAP. Most recently became a Co-Head for his passion and dedication to the department. Forums Staff (Mods, Senior Mods, Admins): Gamertag: KSI DropShot 7 Forums Account Link / @: @Mr. DropShot Reasons they deserve this award: Extremely helpful anytime I've ever needed anything Forums based. From access requests, to profile and account issues, helping me create my forums group etc. He is always there and quite punctual too. Quick to respond and handle topics very efficiently. Thank you to all other Senior Leaders, 7s, Generals, Officers, Web Ops and Dept Ops staff. Each one of you continue to pave the way for the future of KSI.

  22. Division Leader Gamertag;KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this - Gary has been a staple of DW since its creation. He helped it rise to glory and always had a way of being everyone's biggest motivator. At the Gens meetings he liked to make them fun and interactive and to issue his Gary's(a challenge he sent out to one member of each squad every week.)and really inspired every individual to work hard. Best of all if an individual didn't meet a goal they were met with encouragement that they can still make it happen. Gary has been a motivation and an inspiration to never give up. Co-Division Leader: Gamertag;KSI Havoc 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award- Havoc has always been there for every member possible. I have only recently got to work closely with him on a squad level. Havoc has the ability to harness and notice the natural talent and leadership in a person. He will work with them one on one and help them realize their fullest potential. Through this talent many leaders have risen in our division and he has become a well respected individual throughout each squad and the entire community as a whole. Category:Founder Gamertag;KSI xKing 77 Forums Account Link / @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award King has been a Founder in DW for quite some time. He has always been available to answer questions. He has acted as General over many squads and always brings a fun presence to any party. King will pick up slack in any place neccesary and he is always available to offer advice, share experiences and does his best to improve each squad individually. He has always offered support to me and been a mediator when I have had a misunderstanding or disagreement with others. King is dependable and caring and a great leader of this beloved community. Category: General Gamertag;KSI Hatter 7 Forums Account Link / @Hatter 7 Reason they deserve this - Hatter held the General position for quite some time while I was a Performance officer over LS. In that time I gained a tremendous amount of respect for her. She not only ran the squad with a great sense of leadership but, also constantly strived to learn more herself. There are few people who come along in this community that put as much of their own heart and soul into their work as she does. She cares about people as individuals and is always a mother figure to anyone she can reach. She takes KSI seriously and she always makes sure people know they are a person and they matter. Category: Captain Gamertag;KSI xKamikaze Forums Account Link / @KSI xKamikaze Reasons they deserve this award - Kamikaze is what I would call a household name. When I was looking to rejoin KSI he was an inspiration to me that this was still a community of good people and there is still a difference to be made. Throughout my duration in KSI he has always been a rock in this division. If you mention his name in a party everyone automatically recognizes it because he puts a personal interest in meeting with each member and letting them know they matter and that he is there for them. Kamikaze has held many ranks throughout the year yet no matter the rank he always has the motto "Once KSI, always KSI."This is a testiment to how he treats members and how he continuously dedicates himself to retaining members and being a staple in this community. He is the guy you can turn to if you need anything. A friend, information, or otherwise. Category:Lieutenant Gamertag;KSI xMinion Forums Account Link / @KSI xMinion Reasons they deserve this award - I have had the absolute pleasure and privilege to watch Minion grow into a substantial and notable leader in KSI. At first she was unsure if she really wanted to be an officer but, she has always been gifted in the way of speaking to people. She is a person of integrity and you can always depend on her to speak her mind. Minion has a talent for recognizing her peers and absorbing all of the information given to her and using it to inspire others. She is selfless and kind and in spite of how hard her year has been she never lost site of why we are here and what her purpose is in this community. She sticks to her word and is a reliable ally in KSI. Category:Department Head Gamertag;KSI December 77 Forums Account Link / @December 77 Reasons they deserve this award December is the Head of News and HSI. I have been working with him since he joined and he has always been a hard worker in this department. When he was promoted to Editor he hit the ground running on innovating and elevating each section and program to its highest potential. As he became Co-head then eventually the Head of the department he began to implement his ideas and created HSI. Not only did he want to encompass History but, also the Information and statistics to have a counting record of what's happening in our community so years later we can look back and see where we have come on a community level. December continues to be available to each member of News and HSI and always keeps an open to new and innovative ideas. He is always bringing them to the table himself. Category:Department Member Gamertag;KSI Greenday 7 @KSI Greenday 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Greenday has been a constant in HSI. At times she was one of the only members still pushing for this Department to succeed. She went through and completely revamped the History and eventually the HSI sections on the forums. Once the department changed over she got to work and has earned herself the position of Co-head. She is always available to help answer questions for members of the department and has helped it reach its full potential. Senior Leadership- KSI Scotland 7 @Scotland Reason they deserve this: Scotland has always been very involved News and HSI and has been an important part of this community for quite some time.

  23. Category: Division Leader Gamertag; KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award: When i joined KSI, Gary was the division leader of DW. I believe he deserves this without a shadow of a doubt as when he was div leader he made sure that he made time for all his members both professionally and socially, he’s always positive and is forever making light of bad situations and even though he is no longer of DW anymore he still makes himself available for advice and guidance. He handles all issues tactfully and respectfully and is very approachable. He has great leadership qualities and i believe that because of that he is where he is today. Category: Co-Division Leader Gamertag; KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Where do i start? Havoc is the definition of KSI. He is always sharing his fountain of knowledge with everyone whenever he can, and will take the time to make sure you understand things no matter what he’s doing. He really is the true definition of caring and compassionate. He handles issues immediately and always looks at the bigger picture exploring all outlooks rather than taking the easy option. He is a born leader and mentor, treating everyone as equals rather than numbers. Havoc is full of nothing but positivity giving you the assurance and motivation you need when you’re full of self doubt. Category: Founder Gamertag; KSI xKing 77 Forums Account Link: @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award: King is the reason i am where i am today. Back when i first joined i had absolutely no interest in being an officer as i had severe self esteem issues but it was through his guidance and mentoring that i found my courage and motivation to start recruiting and found my feet as an officer. It’s through Kings encouragement that i found my voice within KSI and his leadership skills are those that i aspire to portray myself. He always has the communities best interest at heart and always brings positivity and entertainment to the table. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag; KSI VENUM 7 Forums Account Link: @VENUM 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Venum is a fierce leader. He is always positive and cares deeply for everybody. One of his best qualities is his compassion and the care he shows everybody individually. Whenever i have doubted my ability to succeed as an officer he has always been at hand to encourage and listen. He is fair and just and when you are wrong he will tell you and help find a resolution to your problem. Venum has helped to remind me of my Why on countless occasions. He treats everybody as equals showing preferential treatment to nobody. He is honest, loyal and trusting, all great attributes of a great leader. Category: Captain Gamertag; KSI Bane 7 Forums Account Link: @King Bane Reasons they deserve this award: Anybody that knows Bane knows that he’s all about fun. Whether he is promoting community events, streaming or just hanging with members in general everybody knows him as light hearted and upbeat. He is entertaining, funny and free spirited. These are all qualities that make him the great leader that he is, because despite all of this, he is a team player. he is all about equal opportunities and working together to achieve together. Recently becoming General of Samurai, Bane has shown great leadership skills by communicating effectively with our squad. He takes the time to listen to the needs and ideas of the members giving everybody equal opportunities to voice their opinions and suggestions. He’s not afraid to act a little silly and joke around but he always steps up and takes his role seriously handling issues in a professional manner. He is always positive and fair and that is why i believe he deserves this OTY nomination. Category: Lieutenant Gamertag; KSI Majesty Forums Account Link: @KSI Majesty Reasons they deserve this award: Since joining, Majesty has always strived to achieve greatness for both our squad and division.

She is honest and fiercely loyal. She is a both great partner and an admirable officer. She is fair and makes time for all members of the squad. Majesty is approachable and sweet natured and it is because of this that all members feel they can go to her with any issue they have, whether it be KSI related or otherwise. Although we have had our fair share of clashes we always come through stronger and better than before. Majesty motivates me to be better and do better and we each compliment each other’s weaknesses. With her integrity i can see her having a bright future in KSI Leadership. Category: Member Gamertag; KSI FadeZ 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI FadeZ 7 Reasons they deserve this award: it’s no huge secret that when i met FadeZ i wasn’t his greatest fan and kinda held him at arms length but boy did he prove me wrong. he has proven himself to be a great trustworthy ally and a strong support system, he is honest and true and always willing to share his insight and wisdom. FadeZ is all about honesty and is very easy to communicate and talk to. Though he is not overly huge on talking he is always there to listen and advise. His wit and light humour are admirable qualities and he is respected throughout the community. I truly appreciate him for his loyalty and people skills.

Category: Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Eyonia 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Eyonia 7 Reasons they deserve this award - During the past year, Eyo has been through hell and back with her division, ES. They have been hit by other communities, having SEVERAL members leave on that bandwagon. With 7’s stepping down, and not much help in sight, Eyo has given it her all and has started turning her div around. She’s gotten ES up and running again, and I dare say it will be a powerhouse not to be forgotten. She cares deeply for her members, is always online to help, and never leaves her guys stranded. As a Div leader, she is an outstanding role model for any member to lookup to. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag: KSI M3NTALIST 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI M3NTALIST 7 Reasons they deserve this award - As the only CoFounder in LS, M3ntalist has had his hands full overseeing several of the squads and never had his job cut out for him.. He goes above his job description, making sure that even the squads he isn't over has the right info, and answers that they could ever need. M3ntalist likes to make sure that no matter who you are, you feel welcome. He will do anything in his power to keep you informed of upcoming events, and always looks out for the best way to not only make our division flourish, but the community as well. He is always offering up knowledge (even if you feel you don't need it!!!), and even in his worst angry British times, is full of laughter and love for his people. Category: Captain Gamertag: KSI Pritch Forums Account Link / @KSI Pritch Reasons they deserve this award - As a Captain in Banshee ES, Pritch has been through it all. The leaving of members over the summer, the closing of squads, and officers stepping down. But no matter what happened, Pritch stood like a pillar leading his squad as a 4th CPT. He took the reins as best as he could, trying to be the glue. Willing and ready, he was on at all times, whether discord of xbox, answering questions and keeping Banshee afloat. Not being an egotistical person, he has kept his workload hush hush and his head down. Thank you Pritch, for all the work you have put in! Category: Lieutenant Gamertag: KSI Jynxie Forums Account Link / @KSI Jynxie Reasons they deserve this award - As Jynxie's previous General, I have had the luxury of watching this young lady grow within our squad. From the very start she yearned for knowledge about our community. Learning everything she could, and questioning what she didn't know, she put all of her findings into making our squad a better, more family like place. As a single mom to an amazing little girl, Jynx always finds the time to take out of her busy schedule to get with people, whether it be via discord, the app, or online. She's always blowing people up with party invites, getting people active, and making sure no one feels left out. She downloads games to make sure everyone is included, and sometimes even goes the extra mile to gift games to others when she knows that they can't get them themselves. She's always willing to help out our members, whether it be to listen to them vent, answer questions, or to host anything I ask of her. I feel that Jynx is a pillar to her squad, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her. Category: Forums Staff (Mods, Senior Mods, Admins) Gamertag: KSI Greenday 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Greenday 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Greenday is a forums junkie, plain and simple.

Greenday never hesitates to explain what she’s doing and why, and goes out of her way to help her fellow staff members when they need it. She truly goes above and beyond as a mod in every aspect and doesn't let it affect her in any negative kind of way. She is just happy to be able to keep the community safe and uphold the standards to help everyone. She truly is the epitome of the standard and those members we all strive to be. Category: Department Head Gamertag: KSI December 77 Forums Account Link / @It’s December, baby! Reasons they deserve this award - Geez, where do I start here? As a member of several depts, December has a plate full. Taking over as the Head of News and HSI was a big milestone for him, and the staff that he presides over. He has completely revamped the way things are done, making everything run smoother. Everything that goes on in these departments are organized now, which makes it easier for staff to know exactly what to expect through the months. I really feel that without his helping hand and guidance to the depts, they wouldn’t be near as great as they are now. Category: Department Member Gamertag: KSI FadeZ 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI FadeZ 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Fadez has been a dept member for some time now. During this time, he’s been a part of News and HSI. For the News side, he’s been very instrumental in helping make the change for the better. He’s revamped the KSI Speaks side of article writing. He’s exceptionally reliable, active, and communicates greatly within his departments, which landed him the Senior Writer position. In HSI he has thrown his weight around too. He’s always super active with updating his div histories, and doing everything that is asked of him and more. He will always be a great asset to any department he’s a part of.

  25. Category: LT Gamertag; KSI Kratos18 Forums Account Link / @KSI Kratos18 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. Category: Member Gamertag: KSI BadKitty 7 Forums Account Link/ @KSI BadKitty 7 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. Category: General Gamertag: KSI YAMAT0 Forums Account Link/ @KSI God Zeus 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!

  26. Category: Senior Leader Gamertag: KSI Ronin 77 Forums Account Link / @Mr. North Forward Reason they deserve this award - Ronin deserves this award because of all the hard work he has done for KSI. One of his biggest success stories has to be DW. While working closely with Gary, Ronin assisted and mentored most of DW’s leaders. He has encouraged a lot of new officers to move up as well as former ones to move back up. He helped us increase our activity as well as helping us grow. This guy deserves to be recognized for all the stuff he has done. He has been a big mentor for me and a lot of others this year. Category: Div Leader Gamertag; KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Gary has been in DW since the beginning and has accomplished so much as leader of it. Even though there were times when Gary wanted to give up he kept on pushing himself. During Gary’s reign over DW, it has won many months for Participation, and has been in the lead for Div cup since it started. Gary was one of the original 7s for DW, when DR and LW merged their wasn’t that much activity but over the next few months DW was one of the best divisions in KSI. It was all possible with Gary’s guidance and his strength to persevere through tough times. Now Gary is a director and he has definitely earned that promotion. Category: Co Division Leader Gamertag; KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Havoc started in KSI back in 2012, made it up the ranks in DM, then from there he made it to the board. This year he is back and he is moving back up the ranks. Havoc is who mentored almost all of DW’s officers. I’m happy that this year I got to expand my leadership through Havoc, this year me and havoc have had many conversations about what I can do to better myself as a leader and every time I left those parties I felt like a stronger leader. He is a big mentor for me in KSI. For almost every week since being in DW, he has hosted workshops to better the knowledge of all members in the division. On top of his responsibilities in clan ops Havoc has a lot in web ops, he’s Performance Ops & HR Head, as well as Performance Ops Ambassador. Even though havoc has all these responsibilities he has always found time for his members who wanna kick back and play games, learn more about KSI, or just need someone to talk to. Havoc is a great leader in all aspects. He defines what a leader in KSI should be. Category: Founder Gamertag; KSI xKing 77 Forums Account Link / @KSI xKing 77 Reasons they deserve this award - King has accomplished so much in 2018. Let’s run through the facts. King helped Samurai get to the best place it could be then was promoted to Co-founder, and a few months later Samurai split, him and the help of many of the members of that squad made that possible. After a few months of being Co founder King was promoted to Founder and since then has been helping squads, inspiring many to stand up and recruit, become officers, and keep members active. As founder king is acting gen over Hannibal and is helping the squad get to where it needs to be. Where king goes, great things happen. Him being inducted into DW’s Hall of Fame shows for all his accomplishments this year. Category: Co Founder Gamertag; KSI VENUM 7 Forums Account Link / @VENUM 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Venum has been grinding this year. When king was promoted to co founder, Venum picked up Samurai and after months, he split the squad, which was the first split in DW, and Paladin was made. Being one of the most successful generals in DW to this date. After the split Venum was made co founder. As co founder he made so many things possible in DW. When Elysium didn’t have a general he took over, and helped train and mentor the officers and gave that whole squad great opportunities. Venum has helped mentor many of the newer officers that are in DW, and made them into great leaders. Venum was also made acting gen of Paladin, when it needed a lot of help. That squad saw some bad days, but when Venum took over the squad was starting to rebuild, he trained up new leaders, and helped Paladin get to around 80 members and has helped them get a new general. Venum deserves to be recognized for his hard work and commitment as a leader. He shows us all that all ranks are equal, and that we all started in the same spot. How we go from there is what we need to work for, and that’s what he has done he has worked hard to get to where he is. Category: General Gamertag: KSI Nebula 7 Forums Account Link / @Nebula 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Nebula had a long road ahead of him when he became General. There were a lot of obstacles in the way. During his time he has seen his officers come and go. He has said there were times where he wanted to quit but he continued to fight through the obstacles with all his strength. I got the privilege to work with Neb as his right hand man, and it was great. I learned a lot of different things from neb. Even though your in this community for longer than someone you can still learn new things everyday from them, Nebby showed me that. As a year of nebby being a gen went by he got Hannibal to a great spot and he was promoted to Co founder. An achievement this guy deserved. Category: Lieutenant Gamertag; KSI xMinion Forums Account Link / @KSI xMinion Reasons they deserve this award - Minion never shies away from doing anything. Always doing whatever she can to help better the squad. Minion is a big assistance to all lower ranking members. She’s very easy to talk to about anything. Minion’s schedule is not so good during weekdays, plus living on a different time zone than most of Samurai it’s makes it hard for her to complete any tasks, but she gets through it and completes what’s required. Especially during the weekend she is amazing. Hosting game nights and workshops, and tries to recruit and train new members. She is an amazing leader and proved herself as a LT, and is now a CPT. I know she will continue to do great things. Category: SGT/SSGT Gamertag; KSI MrsLOWDOWN Forums Account Link / @KSI MrsLOWDOWN Reasons they deserve this award - MrsLOWDOWN is who everyone in Samurai should know. She came into KSI with high hopes. She works day in and day out for the members underneath her. Let’s take it back to before she became an officer, I transferred to Samurai and when I came here I was wondering why she wasn’t already an officer, my first week in I got a message from her, that she sent to everyone in the squad, (She was a SGT at this point) asking what my favorite game is so we can find more people from Samurai to play with, also trying to get more members in discord. Her doing little things like that showed me she cares about every single person in her squad. Showing all that no matter what rank you are, YOU can make a difference. After hard work and dedication she is now a LT, a position she’s deserved for a long time. Keep it up Lowdown. Category: Member Gamertag; KSI Majesty Forums Account Link / @KSI Majesty Reasons they deserve this award - KSI Majesty has so much free time in her personal life that she uses a lot of to help out KSI. Before being in KSI she spent a lot of time in other communities gaining leadership skills, so when she came into KSI she came in speeding. She has definitely showed off her amazing leadership and membership in KSI. Always coming up with new ideas to benefit Security and Member Retention in Samurai. Majesty is a natural born leader always trying to take charge, and she does great. Category: Department Head Gamertag; KSI Skarzx 77 Forums Account Link / @Scarface 77 Reasons they deserve this award - When it comes to departments Skarzx has been a big influence to me this year. Around the time I joined Productions Skarzx was recently promoted to Co head. I didn’t know much of him but I knew he was a great leader. I never really streamed as much before joining Productions. So I watched some of his content and it helped me a lot with streaming. Seeing him as a leader of Productions made me want to be one as well. When Gary stepped down from Head of Productions, Skarzx took over and has been doing great things for the department. Making sure everyone is putting in streams, and doing their duties as members of the department. I’m happy I get to work with him now as his Co Head. Category: Department Member Gamertag; KSI FireHeart 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI FireHeart 7 Reasons they deserve this award - FireHeart has been in Productions longer than a lot of the current members including me. He’s a very reliable guy when it comes to streaming any events. When I was put over Happy Hour, I was able to pick 2 people to be with me on the panel. Immediately I knew I wanted to pick Fireheart, due to his activity and commitment to the department. This guy is an awesome member of Productions. Always good to have someone like Fireheart in a department.

Senior Leader/ Board of Directors Gamertag: KSI Scotland 7 Forums Account Link / @Scotland Reasons they deserve this award - Scotland became BOD earlier this year now I know Scotland works his butt off for people he has been a huge inspiration to me in departments because we used to be going up the ranks back in 2014-2015 and I have seen how he grew and I just hope to do as well as him one day! Director Gamertag: KSI BadKitty 7, AKA Queen of Tacos Forums Account Link / @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Um. Kitty delt with FI and all its shannanagins. Nuff said. But seriously this woman pours her heart and soul into T&E as its head and into the Forums Join area she has been the same consistent leader since she did my Rejoin App! She has stayed kind and true to everyone and anyone who needs her. I MISS HER AS DIRECTOR!!! Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Eyonia 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Eyonia 7 Reasons they deserve this award - So being a Co department head to start off, Eyonia has been one of the most compliant and understanding 7s to the HSI Team. When my staff need information from her she gives it to us she understands how important these things are and I really hope she knows how appreciative I am of her continued support to the HSI team. The other point is Eyonia is the back bone of ES this woman is so sweet and funny and shes been through so much in the last year I only recently learned of all the hardships but she has a strong support from myself and many other members in the community. She puts her division first she doesnt take anything from anyone and she survived a butt hurt ex KSI 7 throwing TSB at her and trying to destroy her home but she keeps standing her ground and proving then that they were wrong to try and ome after her! Co Division Leader Gamertag: KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Havoc 7 Reason they deserve this award: Much like Eyonia it only was recently I learned a lot about Havoc hes one of the many old people in KSI just from how much time he has put in and I can tell with how DW has grown and changed and from meeting him many times he is there for his people like any 7 should. But he goes out of his way to help people hes also trained his 7s staff very well to follow the same foot. DW is one of the shining stars of our community and havoc played a big part in this, in addition to running both Performance Officers and being the man in charge of HR which is something amazing!

Captain Gamertag: KSI Ch4ttyK4thy Forums Account Link / @KSI Ch4ttyK4thy Reasons they deserve this award - Kathy has been my partner in crime for a long time since she basically met me because we think just alike on things and I cant think of anyone better since she has been in our squad shes a natural leader and I look up to her now as my General but I still feel like we are equals. Lieutenant Gamertag: KSI GamerJohn Forums Account Link / @KSI GamerJohn Reasons they deserve this award - John has been another person I met who can be a prime example of Dedication he has had personal life issues bad enough anyone would just leave but he lost his xbox and that didnt stop him! He managed to use the app to still recruit with his General and help out and just chill with his fellow members I cant think of anyone better than John for Lieutenant! Sergeant / Staff Sergeant Gamertag: KSI Cable Forums Account Link / @KSI Cable Reasons they deserve this award - Cable has been a person I have always been comfortable around and being a good friend to me when we were moving up the ranks together he was my right hand he helped me get all the stuff done that needed to he also didn't shy away from letting his voice be heard. When the FI Shinnanagins happened I took the brunt of the hit and it was because he got so much abuse from the past leadership that I couldn't stand it I didnt like seeing my friends get hurt or belittled at and even through it all he still remains a member he still cares even if he works alot. Member Gamertag: Forums Account Link / Reasons they deserve this award - Forum Staff Gamertag: Forums Account Link / Reasons they deserve this award - Department Head Gamertag: KSI December 77 Forums Account Link / @December 77 Reasons they deserve this award - December has from what I've seen the biggest change to News and the best thing that has happened to it in a long time News has never been better and with his guidance he helps me make the History area so much better than it used to be it actually serves a purpose now! Department Member Gamertag: KSI FadeZ 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI FadeZ 7 Reasons they deserve this award - The main reason I think Fadez deserves this is because when he joined News he made such a impact especially with the KSI Speaks articles, he loves News and his efforts are why hes one of the people who most impacted turning it around.

  28. Name: KSI Gambit 7/KSi Veriitas 7 Link to Forums Account: @KSI Gambit 7/ @VeRiiTaS 7 Award-/-Achievement: Drama Queen Reason-/-Evidence: There was a misunderstanding within the community and neither of these two handled it with out a level of drama warranting this award. They went from speaking daily to not communicating for over a week and not intermingling in each others cliques This is a story of depression, sadness, gang warfare tears tobacco and a whole lot of drama. These two young lads recently had a little tiff which resulted in both of them going to their own corners and writing mean entries in their journals. after detailing what each other did they threw them away. What they didnt understand or even foresee was @go away was living in the trashcan (long story for a different time). Luci then made paper airplanes out of them and launched them into the world where @Raggard T. Bear found them in the parking lot of IHOP., he proceeded had an interesting read. Fast forward to the following weekend Rags had to come out of retirement as Dr Phill and talk to each of the youts separately. Rita discussed the sorrows and feels he had sitting next to an empty seat at a baseball game which had a piece of paper on it stating "Reserved for Gambit". Rita took a picture with his two seats, and a shirt that just said "Best". with Mascara running he boycotted the community while trying to "Find himself", Raggard stated he was to old for this Poop, and that rita needed to talk it out and end the drama, or Rags hypertension would be the death of him. In the end rita knew that maybe things gone blown out of proportions, and Beta to beta needed to have a talk with his pal. He took a photo with a Bobble head mascot, consumed some uber eats and stopped spamming the world with negativity meanwhile Gambit was found smoking Cigarettes in the girls room writing graffiti on the wall and burning his arm just to feel something. He didnt want to talk at first, rags tried stroking his ears to calm him but the only words gambit could muster were "PLEASE". Once rags convinced him to put down the Marley Smoke, gambit began to confess the truths. He didnt want to be petty, he just couldnt make it to the game, he had to be with family but rita just didnt understand. rags convinced him to talk it out. When gambit felt better he reached in the trashcan, which concerned Raggard, and he pulled out a shirt that read "Friends", Put it on despite the stains of garbage and began flapping his majestic ears on his way to find his fwiend. Gambit and Rita Met at a mutual location, shared some hugs some tears and a little bit of giggling, things were back to normal. They took a photo and it now read "Best Friends". In the end it was learned that talking it out and not talking it up was the best way to resolve issues and keep friends. Both came back to KSI activity and got their String/Cup set up going again so they could gossip once more.

Name/ Gamertag: KSI Mpliers 7 Current Rank/ Title in KSI: Senior Director Category Nominating for: Director of the year Forums Profile Link: http://www.ksiforums.org/profile/20715-ksi-mpliers-7/ Reasons I feel this member should receive this award: What is there not to say about this guy? This dude came into our division in which barely anyone knew him. Unlike most directors who are barely involved in their divisions, mpliers came in and immediately started helping out our division. He came to gens meetings and gave us great tips to help improve our div (which we followed through with and they improved us greatly!). mpliers was always there for me if I ever needed help or I had questions. I always could count on him if I ever needed him. He is simply a great guy and whenever you're around him. You automatically can feel the mood lift. He simply brings positivity wherever he goes. And he is one of my highest respected leader in this community Name/ Gamertag: KSI VeRiiTaS 7 Current Rank/ Title in KSI: Founder Category Nominating for: Co-Founder Forums Profile Link: Name/ Gamertag: http://www.ksiforums.org/profile/35485-veriitas-7/ Reasons I feel this member should receive this award: VeRiiTaS in the short time that he has been a 7 has greatly improved his division tenfold. He took failing squads and worked his butt off and got the right leaders in place over that squad and set the squad on the right track for success. He is always willing to help fellow members with anything and everything they bring to him, and he always makes sure his members are in a happy positive environment. I respect this leader more than any leader I've ever been around. This guy makes me proud to rep FI in my profile, and makes me proud to say I serve under him. This young man has made waves in the short time he's been here, and he if anyone deserves this award for co-founder of the year.

  31. KSI KiLER KiNG http://www.ksiforums.org/profile/35003-ksi-killer-king/ KSI Mentor Reason? Pfft, I shouldn't need to provide a reason for this amazing and knowledged General and his assistance to more members than I can count for! Just kidding KiLLER KiNG deserves this award because it is exactly what he has been to me as well as many others. For me, he is the reason I am standing as a General today. This man has been there to fill my tiny head with everything there is to know about KSI. Oh, he was the biggest help there was when it came to the forums Cx he spent at least an hour helping me figure out how to post meeting notes to the appropriate section on the forums my first day as a Staff Sergeant! He has helped teach me small techniques within recruiting, teaching others, and being a great leader! This man right here should receive this reward because I have seen him inform, help, teach, and be there for any and all members since before he was even a Gen to the highest ability he could give. No one I know would testify against this nomination. I really do hope you receive this award KiLLER! <3

  32. Senior Leader(Senior Directors/BoD Members) Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI QueenJess 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/39-lilith/ Reasoning why they deserve this – Jess has been like a rock this past year for KSI and for myself, in training she has took us to new heights in LEAD, in leadership she has made so many sacrifices in her personal life, as we all have I know, but with Jess it's more like KSI is more than just a community. It is also more than just a few friends. KSI is her passion, she makes you feel like, well, that this is her “baby†and she is the Mother that takes care of it all. I feel blessed that she is here, but more than anything I am blessed that she is a great mentor to me and all of KSI and the community. Jess I look forward to the future with you and the gang, I thank God every day for what KSI and this family has done, I could never repay it. Director Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Greg 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/109-ksi-greg-7/ Reasoning why they deserve this – Greg has been a great person to work with, and to help teach me some of the things that I didn't know about being a director. He always has the time to give to you if you are in need and want to get a few games in, he will lend a ear when you need that too. Outstanding work ethic, along with making sure that each of his divisions come first when he is online. Division Leader Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI DoCNeSS 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/2253-ksidocness7/ Reasoning why they deserve this – KSIdocness7 gets my vote on this one due to the fact he is a Motivator, Planner, Precise, Inspiring, Honest, and he is Goal Oriented. Docness lets people know what is to be expected of them, then he helps them reach that by having himself or his staff available. He is very upbeat and makes sure that everyone around him are keeping it upbeat. He and his staff meet weekly to discuss the plans for the next two weeks and the past week, if anything when wrong he picks them up and inspires them to do better. All of this is done with the Divisional Goals being set and discussed, he and his staff are a dream to work with. Carry on Sir. Co-Division Leader Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Jezrien 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/1291-jezrien/ Reasoning why they deserve this – I meet Jezrien a while back and have been keeping up with his progress in the ranks and while I must say, I keep getting more and more impressed, at each rank he keeps adding more to his plate that he does. This young man is dedicated to doing so many jobs right now and we are extremely proud of you. Your work ethic is second to none. The work that you do is not easy and you should be commended so I thank you, holding down that many jobs within webops and clanops is truly a hard task... Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI ORACLEx 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/6610-ksi-oraclex-7 Reasoning why they deserve this – As founders go I had a hard time making my choice between Oracle and The Light. The deciding factor came down to time in position and projects, while The Light is just getting started with his career here in KSI, he has all the right tools and is well on his way to becoming one of the best we have seen in a while. Keep up the great work brother! Anyway this is about Oracle, she has shown me that nothing slows her down, not even me. She is always online in some form or fashion. Oracle organizes the weekly FI meeting and usually keeps the guys on the right path. She is accessible to her staff and the squads, and she utilizes her time very well to stay on top of everything inside the division from security to just someone quitting. Oracle is going to be a great divisional leader and its not going to be very long down the road. Co-Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI ViTuL 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/7265-ksi-vitul-7/ Reasoning why they deserve this – Vitul has had a rough go of it for the last few months but I have to give credit to him, he has marched on and tried to make the best of it. He has been with me since day one in KSI and has worked hard for me, never asking why or ever saying we cant do it. Vitul has always been an “OK I'll get right on it†type of guy. He's dedicated to the cause, and he is loyal to KSI. He is now a cofo again and I'm sure he is going to be one of the hardest working cofo's in KSI, one of the best trainers, one of the best mentors, one of the best recruiters, most of all to all of us a best friend, go get'em bud. General Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSIxTommieLee 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/14091-ksixtommielee-7/ Reasoning why they deserve this – I know Tommie is a 7 now but he made his mark with me as a general, you ask why well here is why....Tommie is the first General since ME that I couldn't ever find problems with his G14, squad tag, you pull him into a party, and try to mention a problem, and he has it already taken care of. He is one of the most caring people you will be around, but just wait, he's just starting out in his career. Tommie, keep up the good work brother, it never gets easier, but we can always make it a lot more fun. Captain Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI SweetTea Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/15204-pillow-tea/ Reasoning why they deserve this – Well I had several to choose from here, and this young lady won out because every time I get online to check out the squad tags, or check out the forums, she is pasted all over it. She has made a name for herself as a gamer and also a problem solver, with her squad and division. Keep up the good work. Forum Staff (AAP/GFX/MODS/ADMINS) Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Doctor 7 Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/4993-dark-samus/ Reasoning why they deserve this – Doctor is in, what a great guy, and a great person to have as a teacher and friend.

Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI The Light 7 /FOUNDER EO Link to forums account - http://www.ksiforums.org/user/14042-lightinshadows/ Reasoning why they deserve this – The Light 7 is my choice for member of the year because he is well deserving of being recognized for the contribution that he is putting forth in EO, and also for all of the other divisions. This young man ask questions, then takes the answers and implements them with authority into his division so that they can grow, and prosper. He has the greatest respect for all of the 7â€s staff, he is always trying to learn more and I feel he will shortly be the Div Leader of one of the largest divisions KSI has...thanks for your work here in KSI Light and thank you for your Service to Our Country.

GeneralGamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Hatter77 Vanquish WD Link to forums account - @Hatter 77 Reasoning why they deserve this - This wonderful woman has done so much for the division of WD. There is no doubt in my mind she is one of the best GEN KSI has even seen. She always pushes her officers to do their best and always encourages other members. I haven't known her long but her energy and passion for WD is felt through all the members in Vanquish as well as the rest of the division. I have a lot of respect for her for all that she does for KSI and still being to manage her time well with her family and maintaining healthy relationships with them. WD wouldn't be WD without KSi Hatter 77<3 Captain Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Napster8 WD Carnage Link to forums account - @KSI Napster8 Reasoning why they deserve this - Napster deserves this because he has been working so hard and within the last 2 months he has shown why he desvers his CPT position. Napster never lets anyone down with it comes to training or just hanging out with members. I've seen him move of the ranks when I came back into KSI, he is easy to talk to about any; KSI related or just personal issues. Napster has been working with a lot of the new POs in his squad to build up that officer core and still maintain his real life responsibilities. He is always giving back to his squad and community! LTGamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Blitz11 WD Vanquish Link to forums account - @KSI Blitz11Reasoning why they deserve this - I haven't known Blitz for a very long, but my time in WD. He is well deserving of LT OTM, he does a lot for the community, with hosting gamenight, workshops or just hanging out with members. He makes gamenight very enjoyable and fun! Blitz is always easy to talk to about KSI and how to move up in the ranks again. He puts a lot of time and effort into thing community, while still maintaining a healthy personal life.

  35. Senior Leader (SENIOR DIRECTOR through CEO) Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Swag 77 Link to forums account - @KSI Swag 77 Reasoning why they deserve this - This dude is unbreakable! I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this award for March. Dude dealt with DM closing while still being an acting director, acting Div Leader, and an active Co-Founder in CS. He has had to handle more drama and bull Poop than anyone else because of his rank in the community, and he does so while smiling and laughing. He is always playing with members regardless of rank. He probably hangs out with at least 50 members a day. He is always party hopping and getting to know the members. The only time he is not party hopping is when he is in a meeting, and odds are he is in a meeting on discord and still in a party with members on xbox. It doesn't matter if he is watching tv or youtube he will still get on to talk to the members that want/need to talk to him. Dude is amazing and sets a solid foundation of what leadership is in this community. Director Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - Link to forums account - Reasoning why they deserve this - Division Leader Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Harley 7 Link to forums account - @KSI HARLEY 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Harley is a fantastic leader. She has worked extremely hard to get WD back as strong as ever. Anarchy was able to split under her leadership and she has brought up two amazing co-founders and two generals. This month was a milestone and finally proved that WD is finally on the right track after all the crap that happened back in August of last year. She is always available for her members, and she is always hearing them out to make changes to benefit the squads and the division as a whole. She cares about her members and is always trying to teach them the proper foundation as well as continuously learning to make sure that she can provide the best experience for her members. Co-Founder Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Uppish 7 Link to forums account - @KSI Uppish 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - He has made huge improvements as a Co-Founder in this last month. He has always done a great job at making sure things are going great in Rebellion. He is has consistently shown that he is starting to have a divisional level thinking and has opened his mindset. He is willing to learn and spread the knowledge to the members. He is now starting to be open to change, even if he might not agree with it. He has done a great job overseeing CS and now has the responsibility of not only guiding Rebellion but also Wrath. He is doing a fantastic job as a leader and he is doing a great job at holding his squads accountable and mentoring the officers within the squads all while doing a fantastic job at member retention. General Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Fenny Link to forums account - @Fennyishere Reasoning why the deserve this - Fenny is an amazing general. She has taken Doom and literally transformed it. She had to basically fire her entire officer staff and by the beginning of this month it was barebones. 2 captains (one on military LOA) 1 LT (who was demoted), and 2 SSGT (both left the community). She now has 2 CPTs (one still on military LOA), 3 LTs, and 4 SSGTs with about 7 potential officers. She is always working her ass off when it comes to getting things done in her squad. Even if she is not online, she is constantly communicating on discord. She sets goals for officers that she wishes for them to achieve. She is an amazing trainer and has trained up a fantastic officer corps that seems unstoppable. The squad has also grown about 20 members since the start of this month. She has given the squad a direction of growth and has raised the spirits and morale of all members within her squad. She has made moves that have completely transformed this squad and has strengthened the squad/division as a whole because of her decisions. She is never afraid to ask for advice and considers all of her officers opinions before making a decision; this characteristic of hers has strengthened the officer corps because the officers feel valued and feel like they are able to help make decisions. All of the members know and respect her. She is an absolutely amazing general that has got her squad in the right direction, which if things continue the way they are she will lead the squad to a split within no time (if this where to happen it would be the 2nd split to happen since I split Imperial on 12/10/2019). Captain Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI iChief Link to forums account - @Chieffy Reasoning why they deserve this - Chief is an amazing captain. He is always thinking ahead. He has plans for the squad and has no problem sharing his opinions to help the squad move forward. He does a fantastic job at member retention, and he is an excellent squad meeting host. He does not ever lose his composure, which is what is expected of people in the CPT rank. He is always in parties with members, hosting game nights/workshops/meetings, and making sure that the behind the scenes stuff is getting done. LT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Sinon Link to forums account - @KSI Dilf Reasoning why they deserve this - KSI Sinon is no doubt a leading force in Doom. He hosts several game nights/workshops every week so that all members are able to learn and have a great experience within the community. KSI Sinon is leading the CS recruiting challenge with 7 recruits (3 as a LT), he has trained quite a few potential officers that have become an officer, and now a few that are looking to move up. He honestly rivals me when it comes to getting stuff done. He is the first one to jump on a promotion. I have stated multiple times "Oh I need to get this done right quick", and he leaves the party and gets it done before I have a chance to finish what I'm doing and take care of what needed to be done. Dude is a legit powerhouse that everyone in Doom seems to know and respect. I know he will do great things in this community, but he is 2nd to none at the LT rank. SSGT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Bane 7 Link to forums account - @Bane 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Bane made me put my foot in my mouth. When he first came over to Doom he said he wanted to move back up into the officer corps. I told quite a few people it's one thing to say it, then it's another to prove yourself and do it. I had my doubts that he was actually going to put in the efforts for his promotion, and I am glad he proved me wrong. Bane has recruited, promoted, trained, hosted game nights, hosted workshops, and party hopped like no one else in Doom as a SSGT. Bane is a well known face throughout the squad, and everyone seems to get along with him. He mastered the SSGT rank and has now been promoted to LT because all of his hard work. SGT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - Link to forums account - @KSI Ish Reasoning why they deserve this - KSI Ish was an amazing SGT. He is now a SSGT. He attended every workshop about three times while he was a SGT, and he was recruiting at all times. If he wasn't recruiting he was being trained or hanging with members, which is exactly what you want to see in a SGT. His willingness to learn, his activity, and his ambition to make the squad better is why he deserves this award. Forum Staff (ADMIN/MODS/DEPARTMENT HEADS) Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI DropShot 7 Link to forums account - @Mr. DropShot Reasoning why they deserve this -Dude does not do a single thing without weeks of preparation. Some may say T&E just hosts an event and scheduling is easy; however, that is not true at all. Drop literally plans as much as possible to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. He also takes members opinions into consideration when it comes to game types, so all members can be happy, which boosts attendance at the events. Also the Spring Break was amazingly ran and that is because his dedication to the community is unmatched. Department Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Tinc Link to forums account - @KSI Tinc Reasoning why they deserve this - KSI Tinc is a powerhouse in the AAP department. Dude is on top of everything. Whether it is verifying topics or speaking his mind he definitely takes the lead in most things. It is awesome to see what he has done in this department. Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) -Kasurto Link to forums account - @Kasurto Reasoning why they deserve this - He has only been in KSI for a few weeks but this guy is legit. He got put on the EK team and party hops like no ones business. He is one of the strongest CPLs in the community he jumps in my party and other leaders' parties just to hang out, which is what this community was designed for in the first place.

  36. GeneralGamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI FennyLink to forums account - @FennyishereReasoning why the deserve this - When I rejoined KSI back in December, Fenny has always been able to find the time in her hectic schedule to not only be an amazing role model, but also be a general that everyone aspires to be. Through all of her knowledge and experience, she has made herself a valuable tool that cannot be replaced. I know that whenever I have a question, I know Fenny is only a short message away. While we have been through some hardships, Fenny is never afraid of a challenge and she always rises to the top. She leads our squad with passion and is a great role model for all of her members. Even wile running the squad, Fenny finds the time to be a Senior Staff member in the AAP. Fenny is destined to do great things within KSI and I look forward to being there when she does. Thanks for being you Fenny. LTGamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI SinonLink to forums account - @KSI DilfReasoning why they deserve this - While Dilf has only been in case for a few months, he has definitely made his presence known. While doing a lot of work behind the scenes, he always finds the time to spend with members and make them feel right at home. With everything that is on Dilf's plate, he still finds the time to be active in our information team. As time goes forward, Dilf is going to be doing great things in KSI. I look forward to seeing what this man can accomplish. Keep at it brother!! SSGTGamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI IshLink to forums account - @KSI IshReasoning why they deserve this - Over the last month, Ish is always striving to be a better member. Through his attentiveness in the workshops to spending time with members, Ish doesn't cut corners and is always determined to getting the job done. While he just started climbing the ranks to becoming an officer, I am certain that Ish is going to be doing great things on his way up the ladder. Senior Leader (SENIOR DIRECTOR through CEO) Head of EducationGamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI DC 7Link to forums account - @KSI DC 7Reasoning why they deserve this - This man is the prime example of efficiency. From the moment he get's on to the moment he get's off, DC is on a mission to get something accomplished. Over the last few weeks, DC has been fine tuning every single workshop that KSI has to offer. While it might be a daunting task to most, this is just another day for DC. As the head of Education, he is always finding ways to improve the QOL for all KSI Members with Workshops. DC, I am amazed with all that you have accomplished and I can't wait to see what the future has to offer.

Senior Leader (SENIOR DIRECTOR through CEO) Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI DC 7 Head Of Education Link to forums account - @KSI DC 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - Since DC has been the HoE he has worked hard to get new workshops and guides made for the community. From working with him in Education on different workshops I've seen him trying to merge different workshops together so the information in said workshop would all be consistent while removing any trivial information that isn't essential. He also is always writing new material that will help our other members understand the concepts more clearly. He even hosts workshops throughout all the divisions to make sure every squad has a chance to learn the new material. I can tell he puts his all in the workshops to improve upon the information already listed to help future leaders in the community. CPT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI iChief Link to forums account - @Chieffy Reasoning why they deserve this - Ever since chief has come into the officer core and even with his promotion to CPT he has been able to stay on task and get Poop done (excuse my language). This man takes up every chance to learn that you give him. If you need something done like a promotion or a member needs an officer to help out he is there to assist and he is just a great energy to be around. I've definitely seen his leadership skills come up here and there and I believe he has great potential in the future, even with a busy work and social schedule chief is sure to be on time to any event you need him at or that he is hosting. He has done a great job at mentoring other officers in the squad and i can't wait to see what more he can do. Its a pleasure working as a team with him and the rest of his squad. LT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Sinon (AKA Dilf) Link to forums account - @KSI Dilf Reasoning why they deserve this - Dilf and Chief are essentially two peas in a pod when it comes to their work ethic. This guy is either always in a party with member/s playing and having fun or just talking to his other officers to gain more insight. Dilf is on top of promotions and is always there to jump on an opportunity when it arises. There is always good energy and vibes when you join a party with him and is always down to just talk if you don't have the games he plays and vice versa. He NEVER shys down from an activity or a chance to recruit and help other members grow their knowledge. The potential is overflowing with this one. SSGT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Bane 7 Link to forums account - @Bane 7 Reasoning why they deserve this - I know he's gonna hate me for nominating him as a SSGT but god dammit he's a great Schuckin SSGT (pardon my language). Bane is the kind of man who no matter what party you go in he seems to either follow, or already be in there hanging with members. His man's work ethic is crazy, he is constantly posting in the discord trying to get members active and play with him. He makes it a task to get to know everyone in the squad and make sure everyone in the squad knows him. He has a lot of passion and drive for KSI and we are working with that. He is always down to train and help out potential officers which I like to see not to forget he's a party hopping god. If there are KSI parties open, he's not one to shy away from jumping in and making a few friends on the spot, that's just the kind of person he is. SGT Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Ish Link to forums account - @KSI Ish Reasoning why they deserve this - Ish has been one of those members that's activity has been consistent through out his time here in Doom. Whether it be in the discord chats or participation in the gamenights he is down to chat. He's been putting time into recruiting and I can tell he cares about the community and wants to see it grow which is a great quality to have in a member. Department Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI Tinc Link to forums account - @KSI Tinc Reasoning why they deserve this - Since Tinc has been hired in AAP I've seen nothing but initiative and activity from this man. He takes criticism well when it comes to making mistakes but is never afraid to keep trying to verify awards and replying to topics. He is always down to learn something and doesn't shy away from asking questions when unsure. I can't wait to see what more he can do in AAP.

  39. KSIxROMEo 7 @KSIxROMEO 7 Outstanding Service Lvl 2 What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Personally, I’m not sure. But I‘ll bet that Romeo will know the answer. That’s because, like Santa, Romeo knows everything. So far in his tenure as DM’s Division Leader, he’s had to assume the role of Acting General of 2 squads, and Acting Co-Founder of 4 different squads! Currently, over Wrath, Sinister, and Venom. Romeo still recruits and promotes people for his squads. Actively engaging in officer's duties and responsibilities from SSGT to Div Lead on a daily basis. And since he has stepped in as Acting General of Sinister and Venom, both squads are beginning to flourish with new growth and new officers. Romeo also runs KSI’s largest Division by a wide margin. With 430+ members DM is thriving to say the least. With everyone recruiting and promoting Demonic Mayhem is growing bigger everyday and it’s amazing to see. This is in large part due to Romeo’s steady hand and commitment to excellence at every level. Romeo's to his members is extraordinary. He’s always involved and never far away for whatever you need. Romeo has personally been there for me on many occasions to answer questions, to talk to and hangout with, or bounce ideas off of no matter how ridiculous they may seem. (Ex: A 72 hour gamenight. Because I want the longest gamenight record). In short, KSIxROMEO 7 defines and codifies the type of strong, consistent, and high quality leadership that KSI needs on a day to day basis. He goes well above and beyond the normal duties of anyone in his rank, stepping into whatever role he's needed. And more deserving of this award than anyone else I can think of.

  40. Category: Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Eyonia 7 Forum: @KSI Eyonia 7 Reasoning - I’ve known Eyonia or Eyo as myself and many others know her since 1st captain and not long after promoted to General of Banshee, from day one to present she has always been welcoming, there to help in any situation and her training advice and wisdom has helped make me be who I am to this day as she was and still is a great mentor too me. As she has gone up through the ranks she has continually learned more and improved to become a personal inspiration, she continues to advise every day. She may not forgive people all the time but she is also willing to give them a chance depending on circumstances. Category: General Gamertag: KSI Hatter 7 Forum: @Hatter 7 Reasoning - I've only known Hatter a short time but it feels like I've known her longer, she's a fantastic people person and has brought members together and stronger with each other as a squad, her organization and leadership is an inspiration to many people and she knows how to handle problems and situation while showing a positive atmosphere and attitude for helping anyone no matter what she’s doing herself, I can see her being an even better leader down the line the more I work with her and I look forward to it. Category: 4th Captain Gamertag: KSI Pritch Forum: @KSI Pritch Reasoning - He’s has held the squad together and given me advice on multiple occasions on how to better handle matters if he were in my shoe as well as helping advise other members in the squad with personal and squad decision in their best interest to help them. He’s stepped up to the mark and anyways been open to improvement going up the ranks, since being a Lt and now Cpt he take more time to understand peoples matters and apply them where they are needed if helpful. Category: 1st Lieutenant Gamertag: KSI LegateShade Forum: @KSI LegateShade Reasoning - Legate and I started working more closely from my Promotion of Ssgt but better at Lt but he has always taken time out to chat generally or KSI wise whether it be gaming or just wanting someone to talk and get an opinion from a different perspective to you can count on him to be there if there's a situation you need a second person to check over or get advice on, see what they would do in the situation themselves. his advice being through what he has learned over the time in the Div and more specifically the Squad he's in is always helpful. Category: Director Gamertag: KSI BadKitty 7 Forum: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasoning - when it comes problem-solving of situations whatever it is, her communication with all parties and what's happening is great and she has the knowledge which many have learned from to take correct but yet effective steps to detail with it. She is also willing to give second chance depending on who you are and the situation as long as your willing to work with her and prove yourself too, which usually leads to improvement from the lesson.

  41. Category: Senior Leader Gamertag; KSI Ronin 77 Forums Account Link / @Mr. North Forward Reasons they deserve this award – This guy has been instrumental in my KSI career since day 1. Especially coming through the ranks and recently during the merge and creation of Sovereign Legacy along with Bad Kitty. This dude is always trying to change KSI for the better and when he sets his eyes on an objective, he gives it everything he got. Not many people can list off the achievements and tasks this man has accomplished in his career and very few have done as much even recently. The force behind the DW growth with Gary, Lead class Revamps, along with the rest of his Senior duties are just various examples of how good this guy is and shows no signs of slowing down. Category: Divisional Leader Gamertag; KSI Grimshot 77 Forums Account Link / @KSI GrimShot 77 Reasons they deserve this award – This man has done a lot for EO in his time. From Recruit to Divisional Leader he has done nothing short of establish himself as a leader and a driving force behind EO. A lot has happened in that time both good and bad, but this man perseveres and continues looking for ways to grow the division and make it better. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag; KSIxPapi 77 Forums Account Link / @KSIxPapi77 Reasons they deserve this award – This guy is another one of those members that if your lucky to know him, KSI is that much better of a place. No one is stricter and more carefree at the same time than Papi, respected and loved by all EO. When I left to take on SL, he inherited a lot more responsibility and from what I know he hasn’t lost a step. From training and mentoring this man is nothing short of a beast and I look forward to the day he makes Divisional Leader. Category: General Gamertag; KSI Rock Dogg Forums Account Link / @KSI ROCKDOGG Reasons they deserve this award – Since coming to SL, this dude has been nothing short of an amazing officer and general over Enforcer (now Knights). Runs the biggest squad in the division and is very well respected amongst the members and for good reason. He is always available to speak with his members on issues and helping them out. One of the most active recruiters I have seen in KSI since being in it and mentors some good officers below him to consistently be better, one of which is my OTY for LT OTY. We didn’t get off on the right foot initially as we were taught two different ways, but he has impressed me, and I think we are in an excellent spot now in terms of communicating about how to continue to improve Knights. Category: Captain Gamertag; KSI Sinikon Forums Account Link / @Sinikon Reasons they deserve this award - Very well spoken, great head on his shoulders and one amazing Captain. For Imperial he brings a great work ethic, respect amongst his officer staff and his members, knowledge about KSI and the never-ending desire to improve and grow as a member and a leader. I see a lot of General qualities in this man and have seen him complete tasks that normally a General would be the only one doing. Always ensuring promotions are done and keeps his officers up to date with everything they need to get done. Also, a solid recruiter and active member! Category: Lieutenant Gamertag; KSI Gamer John Forums Account Link / @KSI GamerJohn Reasons they deserve this award - This guy is probably the best officer I have seen in KSI since …… well myself lol. But seriously this guy defines what it means to making your time worth it and you always see john out there either with members or recruiting/promoting. Winner of October top recruiter for SL and is a threat to get that every month. Very solid head on his shoulders like sinikon and I see a future general in this man more and more. Category: Department Member Gamertag; KSI Bane 7 Forums Account Link / @King Bane Reasons they deserve this award – This guy is my new co-head in Productions and there is a very good reason why. Bane has been a productions member for even longer than me and has always been reliable when it comes to streaming events or just making content for the KSI YouTube. Started out with some Let’s Plays and then just became a leader within productions initially with running the happy hour team for 5-6 months. He is the most active and I know if I ever were to remove myself from Productions, I couldn’t think of anyone to hand the keys off to then this man. Also, he is the Spirit Week king…. So yeah, he’s the man! Department Head - KSI Riiot 7 @KSI RiiOT 7 This man has always tried to revolutionize his department. While others tend to change things on the backs of others , this man sets the example himself. Always there to respond if u have questions or any issues and when you have an idea he will give you his undivided attention and help guide it. One of the biggest people involved in making Divisional Hall of Fame a reality which i cannot thank him enough for. Thanks to Riiot we see people being honored for all their hard work and enshrined in the Division history forever. On top of revamping how Outstanding Service works and the several different awards he created saw the most activity in AAP than i ever saw. This guy is a game changer and i am glad he is the one to lead AAP.

  43. Category: Director Gamertag: KSI Ronin 77 Forums Account Link: @Mr. North Forward Reasons they deserve this award - As a director Ronin made a plan to merge DR & LW and he did everything to make sure that the merge went smooth, he mentored Gary on what it took to be a great leader & he was a big part of all the divisions success. Without Ronin the div merge wouldn't have been executed as smoothly or as successful. Here we are again Ronin is putting in lots of time and effort to another successful divisional merge. Category: Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Gary 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Gary 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Gary has been through alot in 2017/2018. It all started when he was Co-Founder & he got left with a div that needed alot of work to be done. After the divisional merge Gary led DW greatness by getting members motivated & creating great leaders. Gary's dedication to the community and his hard work is what made him stay and earn his way to Director. Category: Co-Div Leader Gamertag: KSI HAVOC 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Havoc 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Havoc came back into KSI with alot of knowledge under his belt. Working his way back up the ranks havoc has put in alot of hours on xbox training people on officer duties, handling issues, hosting and attending meetings and taking squad tags to be acting Gen. Honestly if you name it he probably did it. He's very determined to make DW a great place for the members while helping create better leaders squad based and within the divisonal 7 staff. I couldn't be more proud of the work that havoc has put into the divison. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag: KSI VENUM 7 Forums Account Link: @VENUM 7 Reasons they deserve this award: To start, Venum got promoted to Co-Founder after he had split Samurai to create Paladin, He did alot to bring that squad to a split, From there he had opened another cofo spot that he earned. Starting off I worked very closely with Venum trying to get him prepared and he flourished from there. He is a huge motivator and a great problem solver for any member In the division no matter what squad you're in. Venum has been acting gen of every squad within the divison some multiple times. Right now venum is taking on the task of Paladin AG, when he got the squad they weren't very motivated and they were very stagnant, with some of his magic they are now pulling in recruits, hosting gamenights and there activity is at an all time high! Someday I will run my own div and I can wait to see what venum brings to the table. Category: General Gamertag: KSI Nebula 7 Forums Account Link: @Nebula 7 Reasons they deserve this award: Nebby is a special kinda something.. when I got to LW nebula was still a general, I didnt even know him very well & I didn't know the history of his squad. When we first talked he told me he had been a Gen for an entire year and that alone showed me alot nebby, showed me he had a never give up attitude. It took him alittle over a year to get Cofo and in that time he showed alot of people why deserved that position. Nebby had gotten Hannibal to a point that it wasn't at in sometime where things were finally picking up and people were finally stepping up to the plate. Nebby is a born leader. Category: Captain Gamertag: KSI xKamikaze Forums Account Link: @KSI xKamikaze Reasons they deserve this award: Theres so many things I could say for this guy.. Kam had a rough time his first time in KSI. When I reached out to him be was quick to come back and give KSI a second chance. Kam wasn't even in a month and he became a recruiting machine. He started quickly rising back through the ranks and helped mentor multiple officers on the way up. As a captain Kam helped lead samurai to the squad split communicating with venum on any and all issues, assisting running the squad meetings and implementing member retention like never been before. I've always said it and I will say it now, Kam was and always will be the heart and soul of Samurai & maybe even DW all together. His level of dedication is unreachable and his work that he does is through the roof. This guy is a mentor to many and I can't wait to see him rise through the ranks again. Category: Lieutenant Gamertag: KSI Majesty Forums Account Link: @KSI Majesty Reasons they deserve this award: Majesty came in during my stint as acting gen so I got to work pretty close with her. She has alot of experience in leadership areas from past communites and she has brought that knowledge here with her. She trys her best to make as much time for KSI as she can and to be available for any members that need her while still being a great mother. Majesty is always trying to learn new things and implement new and effective ways to do things. She is determined to some day become General and I think that if she continues doing what she can she will get there in no time. Keep up the great work! Category: SGT/SSGT Gamertag: KSI xMinion Forums Account Link: @KSI xMinion Reasons they deserve this award - Minion did some great things when she first started coming up the ranks. She was highly against recruiting but after being taught and getting comfortable with it she started rolling. When samurai was still in the rebuilding faze minion was one of the first people to step up to the table. Shes always one to listen to the members and shes always trys to bring people together. She is now captain in Samurai and she has some pretty big goals to some day achieve. Category: Member Gamertag: KSI DarkQueen 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI DarkQueen 7 Reasons they deserve this award - During her time in CD she was in multiple squads. Her success came in Empire CD where she had worked her way up to Co-Founder. When she had gotten promoted I was the PO over her div and I got to see what she really could do. Sadly her personal life at that time was kinda hectic so she was limited. Sadly CD had been announced for a divisonal merge with FI.. DarkQueen had made the jump to DW joining over in Paladin as there 2CPT. Within her first 2 hours in the division she had already pulled In 2 recruits for the squad. Dark plays a big part in what Paladin has been doing teaching all these new officers and trying to get them all on the same page. She has turned into one of the best recruiters in the div and she is always bringing members within the whole division together during her Midnight gamenights and just in general. She is on a mission for Gen and I really hope she stays on that path of destruction. Category: Forums Staff Gamertag: KSI BadKitty 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Kitty is currently a Senior Forums Mod and shes the biggest reason why I'm a hard working mod. When I first got hired on kitty ran me through everything that I needed to know step by step instead of just throwing me to the wolves and expecting me to figure it out on my own. Anytime I make a mistake or over look something kitty is always the one to message me and explain to me what had happened and way to either fix it or prevent it in the future. One of my favorite things is that no matter how busy she is at that moment kitty will always make time to answer any questions I might have. I give her alot of credit for any of the success I might have as a Forums mod. Category: Department Member Gamertag: KSI Bane Forums Account Link: @King Bane Reasons they deserve this award - Bane has had a rocky road in clan ops, but he has more then excelled in department ops. Currently Co-Head of productions bane has brought many ideas to the table. He also was a big part of the success of Happy hour. Bane had helped skarz turn productions into something different. He definitely earned his promotion and i can't see what else he may bring to the table with his new position.

  44. Senior Leader KSI VeRiiTaS 7 @VeRiiTaS 7 Rita this year has just been dedicated to the security and future of this community. He handles issues regularly all throughout the community while still being that same guy who finds the time to be in parties talking to the members and playing games. He is involved hands on in alot of aspects specifically with assisting the Join moderators in the join section as one of the go betweens who really is essential on harder situations. He is a great assest to this community paving a way for those that follow. Division Leader KSI Gary 7 @KSI Gary 7 Gary this year was given command of DW being created off a merge of 2 Divisions not necessarily doing too hot. As div leader he lead DW , growing it and molding it into a powerhouse just bursting at the seems with activity and growth. The division climbing how it had in such a short time and excelling in every capacity would not have been possible without Gary's leadership and honestly his work shows. Co - Division Leader KSI HAVOC 7 @KSI Havoc 7 Havoc this year has climbed the ranks in DW after returning from a step away from the community for a time. The man hit the ground running returning to DW to help a new division build and grow and in that time he has been a determined force driving DW to being one of the biggest Divisions currently in KSI. He is always available for everyone regardless of your rank or position he personally mentors members throughout his div by helping them work on planning and finding the the things the Excell at. I've never seen a leader as hands on "down in the trenches" so to speak as this gentleman right here. Founder KSI AIRBORNE 7 @Airborne Airborne was Founder of FI for a time this year and in that time was a very hands on down to earth leader constantly invovled and boots on the ground with each squad. Even while doing multiple things in life and holding 2 jobs this guy still found time to always been on when needed and always be helpful to every member under him. He was truly an asset to that division at the time keeping it afloat. Co - Founder KSI xKing 77 @KSI xKing 77 King has been a very dedicated Co founder this year heavily assisting the building of DW and it's squads. He is always hands on in events and meetings and the operations of squads. He also worked as an acting gen rebuilding Samurai DW while being a cofo and his work there has allowed the squad to grow and the members in it Excell. As a co founder while this is expected it is not always done in a positive way but king truly knows how to effectively save things and has shown it with the squads under him. General KSI Hatter 7 @Hatter 7 Hatter has been such an amazing hands on General in LS this year. Her squad has shown such amazing activity across the community that you see them constantly in Weekend Warfare and doing cross divisional gamenights with members from all over especially places like ES and DW. The members of her squad truly feel appreciated and show that they are trained properly and effectively by hatter and that is in my opinion such a key thing for a squads success and a members ability to grow into their full potential. Hatter has given that leadership and guidance non stop. She also goes out of her way to make sure her people are recognized for what they do and that everything is tip top shape. Her dedication is insipring and truly an assest wherever she is. Captain KSI Harmony 7 @Nikki Cola Harmony this year has held ranks from Sgt all the way to Gen but she has excelled in her squad as a Captain. She is very dedicated to being there for the members constantly in parties when she is on holding gamenights, mentoring, and even just being a friend when it's needed. She helped build and mentor many people in her squad that have grown into officers and leaders themselves which is awesome. Her dedication is known and her drive shows in each member she mentors. Definitely in my opinion the best option for this award Lieutenant KSI xMinion @KSI xMinion Minion as a LT has been super dedicated to her squad always in parties and the discord talking and communicating with everyone while holding game nights and making sure everyone is involved and included. She goes out of her way to attend things and host things and be involved often sacrificing her sleep and sanity as she is a UK Based member in a US majority Based squad yet she still makes and runs events on US time truly showing her dedication. SGT/SSGT KSI Majesty @KSI Majesty Majesty is a very hands on officer and for a time before moving up to LT was the most dedicated SSGT I've seen in a long time. She is constantly holding game nights and workshops and helping members in her squad by making sure they are involved and recognized in every capacity. She is very down to earth and real in that aspect and her guidance is such a great assest. Member KSI Scotland 7 @Scotland Scotland is such a hands on member of this community and this year has shown it. He made strides with the departments as Chief Department Manager getting them all into tip top shape under his overall command and guidance. He has really molded how the departments operate and how department heads run their respective groups his work this year tremendously shows and it even earned him a spot on our board of directors Forums Staff KSI BadKitty 7 @KSI BadKitty 7 Kitty is always dedicated in her many jobs as forum staff, being a senior mod and a join mod she goes out of her way always with the safety of the site and the community. She is very hands on in every aspect of that. She is always on the forums making sure the standards are being upheld and continues to be a role model to her counter parts of exactly how you should be in those capacites. Department Head KSI December 77 @December 77 December has been a godsend to news without a doubt this year. He has completely changed how the department operates in such a better way that it's really blown up in a big way. With every event being covered strategically and alot more interaction with the community that news has been making you can't argue the progress of news especially with it's fledgling department of history Now HSI under his command as well on the rise. Everything is organzied and scheduled on a very personal and professional basis with this guys department that it's efficiency just continues to rise. Truly news would be a shell of what it is now without him leading it. Department Member KSI GreendayFox @KSI GreendayFoxGreendayFox History has been a small department under the news banner that has been trying to branch out and become a thing for quite some time now sadly it has not met it's full potential but this year the department has made strides becoming HSI and a huge factor of that has been Greenday and her drive and dedication. She has been on the ground doing alot of the footwork almost single handedly assisting in every capacity with each divisions histories and the new ways HSI does things. She is currently the editor and without her dedication and drive HSI would honestly not even exist in the capacity that it does right now.

  46. Senior Leader - (Board members, Senior Directors) KSI VeRiiTaS 7 (Senior Director) Link: @VeRiiTaS 7 Reasoning: Tyler has been a dedicated member of KSI for a few years now. I remember back when he was my general in FI and my division leader. This guy when he made senior director has been working his butt off from day one. I always see him online in parties with new people and in meetings. He’s always putting in work and motivating everyone around him to do better in KSI. He always gives me advice when I need it and is always willing to help me no matter what I need. He is the perfect example of what a senior LEADER should be. He doesn’t slack around, he’s not comfortable with his rank. He’s always working harder and is always aspiring to be more than what he already is. And what he already is? Well he’s the best damn leader this community has right now and it would be an insult for him to not win senior leader of the year. Director KSI Badkitty 7 (Director) Link: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasoning: I haven’t truly met badkitty. But just from an outsiders point of view I see how much this member truly does in her position. I see her everywhere. Always posting and getting members hyped for whatever. Rather that be TnE or Weekend Warfare, or whatever else she’s pushing. She’s always positive, down to earth, and very intelligent. Three things a leader needs. Division Leader KSI Akame 7 (Division Leader of LS) Link: @KSI Akame 7 Reasoning: Honestly I love akame to death. He is one of the most fun guys to just hang out with. But when he’s putting in work. You know. He’s always sending out messages reminding us of everything that’s going on in KSI. He keeps our division safe with his take no crap attitude and love for LS. He’s truly going to go places in this community. And I’m PROUD to serve under a DL that loves and cares for his members. Co - Division Leader KSI ODIN 7 (Co-Division Leader of LS) Link: @KSI ODINN 7 Reasoning: If you have never heard of this guy, than you haven’t been here long. This guy is EVERYWHERE. He’s always sending out messages and hyping his members up. When you’re around this guy, you’re hyped for not only LS, but all of KSI. He is a gem of a leader and I am proud to serve under his guidance. Odin loves this community and we love him. He’s one of the best leaders I have ever had the pleasure of serving under. Co - Founder KSI M3NTALIST 7 (Co-Founder of LS) Link: @KSI M3NTALIST 7 Reasoning: Mentalist hasn’t been a 7 long. But oh boy has he been putting in work. He’s always helping out members me included with anything you could bring at him. I could message him at 3 am and he’d be positive and tell me what I need to know. He is enthusiastic about KSI and that is one of the most important traits in a leader. General KSI MFLSwagg 7 (General of Legend LS) Link: @KSI MFLSwagg 7 Reasoning: Oh boy. If there was ever a member to deserve an of the year award, I’d think it’d be the guy who has a KSI tattoo. If you think you’ve ever seen anyone enthusiast about KSI, and swagg doesn’t come to mind, then you never met him. This dude is always positive and hyping up his members. He puts in more work than anyone in his squad and he’s a contender for most work put in for the division. This veteran has been through so much in KSI. And I would not like to be lead by anyone else. This guy is my brother. And no that’s not why I’m nominating him. I’m nominating him because he has busted his butt for 5 years in this community and I think he needs the recognition he deserves. I love this guy like family and I’d do anything for him. And I know for a fact he’d do anything for not only me. But for anyone in this community. That’s just simply how much me loves this community. Member KSI Impyyy 7 (Chief Executive Officer) Link: @impyyy Reasoning: Impyyy has risen to such high ranks in KSI simply because no one puts in work like he does. He is always striving to make this community a better place for its members. And he always has the members of this community in mind when he makes any decision. He is a great role model and someone who I look up to. Some day I hope I can be where he is. Or at least leave a fraction of the mark he’s left on this community. Forums Staff (Mods, Senior Mods, Admins) KSI Scotland 7 (Chief Department Manager / Admin) Link: @Scotland Reasoning: Scotland is always busting his butt for the departments of this community. Making sure they’re doing what they need to do and so on. But he is also a fantastic admin for our website. Always making sure his mods are on top of their job and making sure our website is a great and safe place for our members to converse with one another. We are lucky to have him. Simple as that. Department Head KSI December 77 (Head of News & HSI) Link: @December 77 Reasoning: I’m so happy and proud to be in this guys department. I’ve been in news a lot and I haven’t seen this guys level of enthusiasm for it since impyy ran it. He’s always putting in work for the department and making sure everyone knows their assignments and he’s always there if we need help. He’s a great guy and an even better leader. Department Member KSI GreenDayFox (Member of HSI & News) Link: @KSI GreendayFox Reasoning: This Member is always making sure she does everything she can for her departments. Rather that be writing articles or helping out members who need help with theirs. She’s always constantly putting in work for everything she’s in. Rather that be clan ops, her job as a forums mod, or he job as a member of news and HSI. She’s always putting in the most work and getting the most done. I hope when it comes to news and HSI that I can follow her example and make a name for myself.

  49. Gamertag:KSI KiLLER KiNG Rank: Co-Founder Nomination: General Of the Year http://www.ksiforums.org/profile/35003-ksi-killer-king/ Reason: I believe this guy deserves this award in more ways than can be explained. Ever since I joined KSI he has been the one to guide me all the way to being a General now, I've personally seen him help out members to the best of his abilities and push to be on top without trying. He has an outgoing and positive attitude and negativity isn't apart of his vocabulary. He strives for the best and works hard to keep those around him on the right track and to reach higher than they expected to. He is a mentor and helper to me in any situation and I'd never hesitate to go to him if need. He is a friend and someone to count on, I know he is going to go far into the community to make it as best as he possibly can and help everyone enjoy having a good time. If anyone deserves this award, it's the almighty KiLLER KiNG! Gamertag: KSI PaladnMouth Current rank: 4th CPT Category Nominated for: Lieutenant Of the Year http://www.ksiforums.org/profile/37765-ksi-paladnmouth/ Reason: The one and only Paladn, also known as Pally by many! This is someone who can do anything when given a task. This someone I have helped train from a SSGT all the way to a CPT, I saw great potential in him and he has proven himself in many ways and to the best of his abilities. Not only is he someone who will be there for anyone on a personal level and protect them, he has always been an active members online and on the forums, he has studied and trained himself to reach his rank and still hasn't given up. He has a very positive attitude when it comes to KSI and is willing to learn and reach further into the ranks than he even knows. He has mentored and trained those around him along with me, to keep them from falling and stay on the right track, he attends events and tournaments and encourages others to do the same along with holding workshops and working with members on the side to become a better gamer or member with high and positive spirits. He is open and friendly to everyone within KSI whether it be his squad or others. He has never let me down as his General or friend and is constantly available to help others who need it. He is a shield and motivator to those around him and amazing at proving his ability to be an officer and member of KSI . If anyone should get Lieutenant of the Year, it's this "Paladn"!
