CEO-@KSI xKing 77 I believe that King deserves of the year for CEO because of his work in ES. When I first joined in July of this year not fully understanding what I was joining he took the time to help me gain a better understanding of not only the Community but his vision for ES and KSI. He helped me realize that I could best assist KSI to be better by becoming an officer and offer my unique brand of insight and help ES and Hydra to grow and become strong. If it had not been for him and several others I do not believe I would still be here. I know you have had so much on your plate and soon to become a dad for the first time. You are more than you give yourself credit for and I am proud to call you friend. I cant see there being a KSi without you my friend.

COFO-@KSI Gambit 7 Where do I begin about this young man. Gambit is literally the life of the party. He reaches out to new and old KSI members he teases us and goads us into reaching for and becoming better. If Gambit had not mentored me the way he did I dont know if I would be in the position I am now. As he says I have the "it" factor whatever that means but his tutelage and drive to quickly move through the ranks I am not sure I would be GEN. it took all I could do to keep up with this young man as we moved through the rank structure and he taught me as we went and made me think as if i were already 2 steps ahead of my current rank. He is a wonderful person who it has been a pleasure to get to know. He has taken the role of mentor a step further and has become a member of my family his children are on my shopping list and his wife is adorable. KSI would not be the same without him.

Captain-@KSI Nagisa although its traditional to name people from your own squad to the of the month or of the year awards and both of my captains are amazing I cant help but want to recognize Nagisa. Despite dealing with his own issues and problems he helped me learn how to game he helped me get to know our squad and has always been available when i had questions even though our squad has split and he is no longer a part of hydra he is still apart of our division of ES. I have watched him struggle with the decision to step back into the officer core and once he did to assist his squad as they struggled. He is continuing to try to help his squad grow and recover. He is being a mentor to several of his young officers and continuing to be a friendly ear for me when I just need to vent to someone who understands what comes with this position. KSi would not be the same without him

Forums Staff-@The ChadMinI recommend you for the Forums and your join area. Despite not ranking up through clan ops he still makes his presence known. He has made himself available to help when needed and has given advice freely. He has also mentored me as i trained to be a join mod while simultaneously working as a captain and most recently becoming gen . He has continued to encourage and be understanding despite the fact i am currently busy with clan ops he is allowing me to slow down in web ops instead of having to step down. i consider him not only as a mentor but as a good friend. Throughout my time in KSI his presence has been needed and a voice of reason when situations arose and advising me as necessary when I was unsure how to handle situations. KSI would not be the same without him.

SSGT_@KSI BIKRMOMA SSGT- you were so unsure of joining our strange little family but once you decided to you took us by storm. Learning everything you could and asking questions and participating in everything you could. Not only do you help our squad by being so active you have become like a sister to me and I highly value your friendship. You have taken the time to take nearly all the workshops needed to move up throughout all the ranks even before becoming an officer so you would understand what is asked and what is expected of each rank. You help keep myself and Gambit humble by your thirst for knowledge and your passion for our squad i couldnt picture someone else to be the epitome of what a SSGT should be. For this and many more things I truly believe that you deserve of the year award.

LT-@KSIEZCHOCLAT LT- When you first joined our squad and stated you were interested in becoming an officer I was unsure of how or where you would fit in. As I got to know you I have come to value your insight your drive and passion for wanting to make Hydra the best squad in KSI. You continually ask questions and despite your work hours you are one of my most active officers and I am most pleased to watch you bloom and grow as you move up through the ranks. As much of a hard time you give me you also push me and help me be the best general I can be. Because of your passion and your drive I can truly see you moving as high up as you decide you want to just remember as you do that your story started here in Hydra and we will always be your first family.

Corporal-@Killermolly8 where to begin with this young man. Despite his disabilities he out games me every time!! He is a sensitive and wonderful young man who despite the problems of the real world making it difficult for him to be as fully active as he would like and through the loss of his brother he still remains a positive young man in our squad. He is usually one of the first to greet me when I go online if he is on and one of the last to say goodnight. He checks in on other members and jokes around with the best of them in our squad. Although currently he is a corporal in our squad I would say he has become an integral part of our squad like the kid brother everyone finds adorable and wants to help. He may have only been part of KSI for a relatively short time he is definitely a member that makes being part of KSI fun.

Gamertag: KSI Shadow007

Forums link:  @KSI Shadow007

Reasons they deserve this award: Shadow has always been there for anything I've needed and for anyone else that's needed it from what I see. He personally even showed and taught me some ways about what I was doing wrong when coming up to CPT as a LT still and I respect him so much more for just showing me what was needed and being blunt and honest and helping me see what needs to be done and to help other officers and not just wait n see if they will but to show them and help them and explain when . Besides that I just always feel he's there for any need no matter how busy he may be he takes care of it and I have nothing but respect for him as a director.

Gamertag: KSI Babytank

Forums Link: @KSI Babytank

Reasons they deserve this award:  babytank has been the life of the party lol. I never seen such a squad be so happy and comfortable hopping in the gens party and being able to either talk bout there day whether its how good of a day it was or bad . I loved it right away when I joined samurai because I felt it's how it should be in a gaming community everyone hanging out laughing gaming. We all get along and have a good time. And when time come she puts the joking aside and gets down to work and does what needs to be done for her squad. I've had my own altercation with her but we always help each other out and just want the same goals for this squad and to see it grow and I'm so thankful for a great gen over my squad. For that I feel she's well deserving of this OTY award.

Senior Leader

KSI Swag 77 

@KSI Swag 77

Swag has always had an incredible impact on his members and leaders no matter what his position is. He has dedicated most of his adult life to KSI, but his dedication has really shown in his most recent role as Chief of Staff. Swag Takes the time to get to know every member on a personal basis. He is constantly looking to innovate and improve the KSI experience for his members and is always one party invite away. He has shown tremendous character and integrity in his role as Chief of Staff, and always makes decisions with the members in mind. Since Swag has taken command, the attitude of clan ops has taken a significant turn for the better. He stresses the most important part of KSI to his leaders, which is to have fun. He's truly a pivotal leader in KSI and I'm excited to see where he's able to take clan ops.

Division Leader

Gamertag: KSI Uppish 7

Forums Account Link / @KSI Uppish 7

Reasons they deserve this award:KSI Uppish 7 has always helped me with any issue that has come my way. He stays active with his members despite how busy he is and is always fun to be around. There have been a few times where I’ve just spoken with him about things going on in real life and he was always there to listen. He’s helped me with multiple situations whether it was KSI-related or not. There are a few reasons why Uppish deserves the award but to give a few ones that stick out to me. We can go to any event and I promise you will see Uppish’s name 10,000 times, Uppish is constantly pushing out the forum's challenge and hyping up the events every chance he could. Uppish plays a big part in why people in CS are as active as they are, whether it’s party hopping between every squad, showing up to officer and squad meetings, or even hosting game nights now and again. When you think of CS he’s one of the first people that comes to mind, he’s joyful while being a doody head at the same time. He’s there when you need him and is always on top of his game. And he does all this while working 12 hour shifts on the regular, “breaks are for sissy’s” is the man's motto. His work ethic shines in CS and there isn’t a reason he doesn’t deserve this. Uppish is extremely hands-on since he’s been DivLead with Calamity and every other squad here,while still managing the Division as a whole.. He’s always worked great with the officers in CS and he’s constantly learning new things and thinking of new ways to better the KSI experience for every member, officer and 7 here. Pushing us all to become better officers and to perfect our craft. His goofiness and drive haven’t changed much since he’s taken on his new role, he’s still jumping in parties, helping people with one on ones regardless of whether it’s training or just some advice. Overall Uppish is just the GOAT.



Gamertag: KSI Grogu 7

Forums Account Link / @KSI Grogu 7

Reasons they deserve this award:KSI Grogu 7 is easily one of the greats when it comes to the leaders in CS. He has helped guide me through many tough times whether it was keeping my head on straight while dealing with a struggling squad or even just day to day struggles of being an officer. He has played a major role in bringing calamity out of multiple rough patches. He has kept our officer core motivated even when it seems impossible and is extremely active in our day-to-day activities. He’s always joining random parties or helping organize officer goals for the week as well as delegation for a day to day process.He helps keep us in check when we need it while also building us up every chance he gets. Grogu is in it for the pure growth and betterment of this community. He is one of the most understanding people in KSI I’ve met. The man knows what he’s doing and his opinion on any matter is extremely valued by myself and many others. If he says he’s got you, he’s got you. He’s never one to disappoint and is without a doubt in the top tier amongst the KSI divisional 7s staff, Grogu makes everything his own and is extremely meticulous and wise while completing tasks or making decisions. He leaves his mark wherever he goes. Grogu was always there to help even when he was the Gen in Wrath, with advice or even just to chill out and think some things over. Since taking on CoFo he’s been one of the main leaders I go to and trust with anything. During my training as acting Gen Grogu helped guide me in the right direction by showing me how to set proper goals in place on a squad-based level, as well as communicating with my squad professionally while keeping it friendly. There isn’t a single reason he doesn’t deserve this award and I’m sure many others would agree.

Endless... Endless is the amount of effort I see being put in by Chocolate. I'll be quite honest, and say, that I envy the drive that pushes him forward. Each and every coming day brings new challenges to the table. These tasks are like a rough wind beating against a stone. As the wind continues, the stone will erode and eventually cease to exist. The stone is ones will to continue if you hadn't guessed yet. Each person is made from a different material. For example: I view myself as if my spirit is made of limestone. It can handle some wind, but it will erode with enough pressure. On the other hand. Chocolate is a hardened steel ingot. I can only assume this is from working experience, and I'm sure others are used to the work as well, but it's different for Chocolate. Even when he was a staff sergeant, he never ceased to amaze me. While I was recruiting a few a week, he was pulling in many more. I would promote people, but never as much as Chocolate. We were at the same rank, yet I felt the need to follow his lead. The beacon he created through his resolve undoubtedly lights the runway for those who follow. With the amount of announcements he sends out, you always know what is happening and what will happen. As I sit at my desk look at discord, I can not help but see KSIEZCHOCLAT racing beyond our standards into a not so far away light. Chocolate, please continue to lead the way and continue to be the kind man you always have been. Thanks
