Name: KSI Swag 77
Link to Forums Account: @KSI Swag 77
Award-/-Achievement: Die Hard
Reason-/-Evidence:  Its clear that this man is long overdue for this award however I will recap the crazy amount of bs and stuff that only I have witnessed during my time of KSI. I first met swag in SL where he was the division leader at the time. During that time there was struggle to find which CoFo would be the best fit to lead the div, so on top of in house disagreements there was multiple attacks on SL from TSB members (blacklisted at the time) trying to DDos KSI members myself included. On top of that multiple leaders weren't getting along in the community however swag was the mediator. Even as a division leader he would play with members and make sure POs were getting properly trained and always was open to getting feedback to improve leadership and how to make things run smoothly and this was on the daily. Just with being COS he has helped create CS a division with the squads happy and helped negotiate what would be changed since it was a SL squad and a DM squad coming together there was plenty of disagreements and going back n forth on standards but he never gave up. Even while helping other divs including WD at the time DM shut down and he helped merge Wrath into CS and make sure all the members were accounted for. He has always been there for his members and you can see it in everything this man does from talking to members to making sure officers stay happy and everyone is heard. He has been acting div leader over multiple divisions like previously mentioned but even though he has had multiple people bash him and disapprove of his ideas or ways of doing stuff the fact still remains that none of the Divisions that I have seen him over haven't closed nor does he LET them close.  On top of daily struggles trying to make sure people don't kill one another he stays strong and never lets weakness show. He may not be a man of many words but when he talks it comes from a good place and he is the definition of a die hard in my opinion.

The man of the pickles. Swag has gone through so much crap in this community that I myself cant even understand at the ground level. But through all of the stuff he has been through that he is the most deserving of this award. He has had to deal with bad leadership, and deal with members who have made his life more difficult than it ever need to be. With dealing with past directors not doing their jobs, or even fighting him over things that are clearly not necessary. He everyone now is dealing with several division who are hurting and trying to keep them afloat while dealing with the other division which are healthier than others. ON top of that he is also been trying to get the officers in those squads trained up which as been a pain as well. He is always there for the members and had been here for a long time with out complaint. Talking with Swag many times he is always happy go lucky and never complains about the problems he is having and is always having a positive outlook to his job and being there for the members. I will not call out names for this but we all know the struggles this man has faced over the years.

Bring on multiple statements to show Swag is a die hard member of KSI. 
keep this definition in mind.

 

A Member that has gone through multiple instances of strife and plagued by daily issues in KSI and persevered onwards where one would normally give up and walk away, but has come through and continued their dedication to KSI and not given into the pressure. -Member must still be in KSI-

***NO SELF NOMINATION***

KSI Swag 77 deserves this for the crazy amount of Poop I personally have seen him do. I have seen him bring the fledgling Chaos Syndicate up and make it into the powerhouse div it is today, I have seen him run this division as acting div lead while maintaining his Board Duties, I have seen him start the ES Revive which to my understanding is coming along nicely, I have seen him handle a multitude of situations that were bad and getting worse and correct those situations for the betterment of the community, I have seen this man have sleepless nights in conversation on how to better clan ops as a whole. This dude is a beast and does not hesitate to help anyone who needs it. He has a Die Hard helping and positive attitude for this community and if yall fail to give him this award, I will be highly disappointed in yall.

I am dropping my vote to witness for @KSI Swag 77. I have known Swag for two years now. I am going to go through every ounce of everything that this member has been through since I have known him, which is only 2 out of the 8 years that he has been in KSI. Swag has battled his way to COS, but the journey there has been full of strife. The first obstacle that he had to overcome was SL as a whole after his division, Last Strike, closed down. Although Swag came in and immediately hit the ground running trying to get to know everyone and help make SL become a better division, he faced extreme backlash because people were upset that his division closed down, yet he got to remain a co-founder instead of being demoted to Captain since we had generals ready to become a co-founder. He then faced even more backlash and hatred because he was promoted to Founder over KSI Rogue 7, whom had been a co-founder in the division before Swag was transferred over from LS. A lot of people were slandering Swag because they thought Rogue should've been promoted. People were threatening to quit and cause a riot if Grifful didn't change his decision and promote Rogue to Founder. He dealt with a lot of hate, yet continued to work his way up to division leader and turn SL into the best SL has ever been with over 400 members, 6 squads, full officer staffs in each squad, and split the division. He faced a lot of challenges as division leader where people constantly threatened him because he was ultimately calling the shots. He faced numerous threats from former generals who decided to quit KSI, faced backlash for changes he made throughout the division from numerous officers and members, faced continuous harassment from members, officers, dealt with harassment from LC members during the Hydra peace talks (some of which were in his division), and 7s when he demoted Rogue from Founder to Co-Founder (decision was later reversed by Ronin,  yet he was still constantly attacked afterwards). That sounds like a lot, and that was only the stuff he faced in SL. He then was promoted to Director and not only was directing SL but WD as well. He tried to implement changes that helped SL become a powerhouse division after WD lost all of its 7 staff besides KSI Inked 7 and then myself after I transferred. He was acting division leader and immediately faced criticism and hatred by WD members that did not want to change what they were doing. He implemented new programs that would benefit WD in the long run, but he was constantly being criticized by the members that everything he was doing was wrong. He faced the same issues he did in SL, yet he continued to work his butt off and become Senior Director then COS. He then was put over SL solely so that he could focus on splitting. SL wasn't the only division used to form the new division because things didn't go accordingly to plan. He was named as the director over and the acting div lead of the brand new division CS. He faced a lot of problems here as well because he had to take two completely different mindsetted squads, Elysium from SL (now DOOM) and Hellborn from DM (now Rebellion) and make them become a cohesive division. He then had to help build the new division while facing major resistance from Rebellion since they did things a different way in DM. @KSI Uppish 7 was promoted to Co-Founder and they butted heads at first due to the training that both received from their divisions. CS had major issues during its creation. Doom almost folded because the Co-Founder over the squad wasn't extremely active and eventually stepped down, so now Swag was Senior Director, acting director, acting div lead, and acting co-founder. He had to help rebuild Doom because they lost a majority of their officers within the first few weeks after the new division was created. Swag then was promoted to KSI's Chief of Staff. He then had to deal with DM and doing what he could to preserve it until DM eventually shut down after the two 7's left. Rumors were spread, and he was slandered by about 100 members who left with the two departing leaders. He took the brunt of it and let it roll of his back. He has continued to be degraded because of his position as COS when people don't agree with him. That sounds like a lot, but the story continues. He then decided to help ES and is now the acting Director over ES all while doing his Chief of Staff job. I know if I had as many responsibilities as him or had to deal with all the drama and BS that he dealt with in every division that he helped, which he was in a divisional leadership position in every single division that is alive and the divisions that were alive that are now in the graveyard (excluding DW) since I have been in KSI: LS, SL, ES, WD, DM, CS just since I've known him, then I would've quit. He is the definition of a die hard for this community just on the lone fact that he has been in this community for 8 years and even has a KSI tattoo. He definitely deserves this award, and I hope that when it is my time to persevere, then I can keep moving forward like he has.

There is a clearly obvious case of someone who deserves Die Hard without much question. The Head of Clan Ops, literally EVERY major issue ends up on his plate. He has been here for literal years and still takes the time to put nose to grindstone almost every day, even when you can tell he is ready to lose his marbles. I know my statement isn't long or completely specific, but Swaggy deserves this hands down or you guys should probably just take Die Hard away from me too

Swag to me is the definition of Die Hard in my opinion for various reasons Swag has been around the community for a long time but honestly the first time I had heard of him was during my time in PO and this was during the time of the closing of LS and he was a Co-Founder and he was gonna transfer over to SL and the division leader at the time told me he wasn't sure how Swag would work out in SL and if he didn't he'd get demoted but he definitely didn't get demoted he rose through the ranks achieved Div Leader and now he is the COS which I will touch on later now how does my previous statement tie into the Die Hardness of him from someone who has had a division close as well I can safely say when you put your all into to something and it just dies out you honestly feel a type of way and you can quit or you can keep going and with Swag he didn't quit he kept grinding and persevering now as the COS the Head of Clan Ops Swag has taken on many projects during this time but much strife as well when your the head of something when something goes wrong your usually the one who's gonna get blamed for it but during his time he got CS up and running and it is currently the largest division in the community but he's also involved with everything clan ops related everyday you see Swag doing something to better this community but there is negatives to this as well and with the rank he's in sometimes you have you have dealt with the mess that past leadership has made and you gotta clean it up and Swag does that never complains about it he just does it plus if we really wanna talk die hard Swag has a KSI Tattoo and if that ain't die hard then I don't know what is
