Nex Addo: Tell us a little history about FA; how did it all start, and how did it get where it is today?
Heroiism: Well I definitely was not the first member here in FA. But I did join when there was only Rapture and Purgatory. The community was growing, and I was part of the Rapture and Judgment split. Things got steered in the wrong direction. I was a Lieutenant at the time in Rapture and wanted to help. I couldn't watch a squad shut down and get merged. I offered to leave my current squad of leadership to start from the bottom in square one in Judgement. It wasn’t easy, but I couldn't do it without some help and the staff who grew within the squad to get where we are today. After Judgement, we created Babylon and Judgement re-split again and created Valkyrie. Rapture split and made Leviathan, and we had Redemption made a bit after Rapture. Although we come across our differences and issues, I have seen each individual leader face challenges in this division. I guess I base myself and my goal to bring this division to the top! I want my team to be acknowledged and remembered, not for what Hero did, but for what each of them can accomplish, not just in FA, but within KSI.
For some people, divisions all look the same- they recruit, they play games, and they hang out. So when asking Heroiism what he believes the difference between his division and the multitude before his he explains,
“I think going back to our members being unique and strong-minded is what makes us different. We definitely have a lot of members and staff to see this division towards the right path. Every division strives for success and betterment here in KSI...I really feel like we are more family-oriented here in FA.”
Nex Addo: What’s the biggest opportunity they have and what’s their biggest strength?
Heroiism: The division has the opportunity to grow if we can let go of our frustrations and our past. We have equal-minded leaders within this division to develop a great home for all of our KSI members. We have the ability to achieve anything within FA.
Before the interview, Heroiism talked a little about himself and the division and elaborate what it means to see his division rise to the top,
“Rising to the top meaning I want everyone to have a clear understanding, to make great choices for the division and growing the division steadily. But overall we want to just have a good program here in FA that will allow our leaders to develop.”
Nex Addo: What is something KSI should know about your division?
Heroiism: This division is a great place to be in. We started very rocky [sic] and yet still have some ways to go but always work on improvement and working with each other. Each squad independently operates, well but some have stronger...weaknesses than the other. My goal is to get everyone under the same level of understanding in order to better understand and work with each other. I want every leader to do well here in KSI and wish for each of their best endeavors. We have a lot of potential [sic] but working on where we slack the most-communication, activity, and knowledge. But I am happy with where we are today within FA.
Nex Addo: Do you have any current plans that you're working on?
Heroiism: Currently working with Generals and their Co-Founders to better tackle fluff when it comes to recruitment and squad operations. Also working with sergeants and other members within the division to come up with ideas to include the division as a whole when it comes to game nights or just getting members to connect and meet each other.
