    Old Folks Attention!

    lol ... mocking the phrasing of my message is not really appreciate but ok .... The idea of "old skool" v "modern day" has been an issue that lingered over any leader who didn't join up during the H2 era of KSI. It is about innovation and how to overcome and deal with people like me who will tell you things aren't the same as they were. Do some digging about KSI and you will find though what I mean ... KSI Events - 2005 ... https://forums.ksiglobal.com/gallery/category/3-ksi-events/?page=3 Now do we need more of SE7EN 7 standing with an Xbox 360 giveaway package in a hotel room to be a great community again? The answer is no. But look at the brotherhood among all of the members there who may have never met in person before that but were having the times of their lives because it meant something. I didn't join KSI until 2011, that era was long gone, so that memory of what we had was always there. Read from the leaders who define modern day KSI ... "Kered: You've been the leader and the owner of the forums since their conception. Which means you've seen many different eras and leadership on here. In your opinion, what was the Golden Age of the KSI forums and what made it such? JT (R00t Da3m0n): I can’t really declare any time a Golden Age. I think the needs of the community have fluctuated over time and we have continued to change. To answer your question though, I think the Halo 2 days were probably the most active days we had." ___________ Koda: "KSI has changed drastically over the years. When I joined KSI originally, it had a back-end infrastructure to support it. We utilized the forums for off-the-xbox chatting and discussion, and we utilized in-game clan battle features. The organization that was on Halo 2 was key. The support of clan battles within Halo 2, and the competitiveness between clans was really what allowed KSI to grow to the massive numbers it had. In-Game support allowed squads & divisions to be clearly defined across the game. Microsoft didn't jump on the "clan" feature, and ultimately, it was a letdown to communities like us, H20, PMS, MoB, XGN, XGC and the like. We were forced to adapt with Friends of Friends lists and other "outside the box" features. But that's just the technical side of it. Even more of a change is the behavioral side of the clan operations. Previously, the community ran with a sense of "respect" and "honor". Our members were proud to be a part of the community, and proud to be involved in something larger than themselves. They enjoyed going out every evening and bringing new people into their world, Their corner of the gaming globe. We respected those above us, we respected our peers, and we respected those below us. But where I look now, some of that sense of respect has been lost.” ___________ We had people posting topics all over the site about being an old skool member v new skool ... "After The loss of the uniforms of Halo 2, Ksi took a plunge into darkness for the most. We no longer had that Wow factor before the match and the loss of people on our teams left gaps that were rapidly becoming bigger. We lost many great leaders that became bored with the fact that KSI was becoming a drama pit with so many changes that no one could/wanted to keep up anymore. Divisions were abandoned, members left behind and no one was stepping up save the few that really clung to the old school way.. eventually things settled to where they are now.. A fraction of what we once were. Memories of greatness.." ___________ ....and that was 2013, still a number of years from today but yet it still was looking towards the past. During my active time in KSI I had some of the most memorable gaming experiences I think I ever had, because of the fact that I was in KSI. We were trying to innovate on the idea of people's pride. "As we all know, of the major things KSI stresses is the importance of a family type atmosphere in our community. Well I have come to an idea to help stress this point even more. This is going to take effort from every Division in order to work. We all know how effective game nights are to build chemistry within squads and divisions. Well let's take it up a notch. Once a day, every week, multiple members from MULTIPLE divisions will get together and just game. Doesn't matter what the game is, just as long as it's a multi player game and every can enjoy. This will not only give members a chance to game, a major purpose of KSI, but it will also break the tradition that you can only game with groups of members in your division. This will give members a chance to meet other people that they may not have had the chance to meet yet. This is all about making lasting friendships throughout KSI, and building a foundation of unity that we can build off of for future generations of KSI members. This will take everyone's help, hope you enjoy." ___________ We worked in the early part of my time in KSI to revive that pride and make something that everyone can enjoy and feel a part of. They could be of any generation, be of whatever rank, because at the end of the day we were priding ourselves of being a part of a community with such a vast history. Read some of the responses from these members, not just the important leaders / retired leaders. Read the real members posts... So what does that all mean at the end of the day... get what you want out of KSI. You do not need the old leaders to come back to take back the reigns because that is how this all repeats itself over and over and over again. I will say as someone looking outside, in, that where is that brotherhood from the Halo 2 era? What makes people stay? Join? Retain membership? Why care? Like I said all great things come to an end and I believe that to the fullest but that doesnt mean things can be changed to help delay that process. Get what you want out of the community and do the things you want. One day everyone can look back on their time active here and laugh at all the silly times and mistakes and joy they had.

    Old Folks Attention!

    To speak on behalf of all the "old folk", representation and visibility is what was lost with the move from the forums to discord. KSI is a staple in the history of gaming community history, not just KSI history. We date back to the earliest of communities and many knew of KSI during the H2, H3 era of gaming. Love or hate KSI, if you played H2 / H3 you at least had some views on KSI. There is a vast history that can be documented about the community and by now locking all that away from public eye shows to people not in the community / not on Discord that the community is dying off. All good things come to and end and even coming from a Hall of Fame member who loves / loved KSI, KSI is nothing like it was when I joined nor is it like what it was before I joined in the "golden age" -- and to be honest I don't think it ever will again. Online forums pages all across the internet are dying off as instant messaging apps like Discord are killing off the need for forums. Skype and Kik back in my day were doing the same but there was a balance still. We still had Kik chats for our officers but they wanted to be more active on the forums as that is where the "fun" was. Kik / Skype messaging was seen as the important information / meetings. Discord has surpassed both of those apps for it's connivence (and rightfully so). As you guys pull away from the forums more and more the amount of visibility goes away because you keep your Discord hidden. Look at communities in recent years that have taken off and are doing much much better, such as XGN, SmG, XS ... they are working both and are juggernauts on Discord, forums and XBL. That is just my take, not that it really matters, but yeah :p Ana out

    Fortnite: Season 5 Preview

    Fornite: Season 5 Preview KSI Packers - News Team Writer There is some pretty big news and speculation coming out of the Fortnite Franchise regarding Season 5, scheduled to release on July 12th! In case you missed it, the rocket within Snobby Shores launched on June 30th. Once the rocket broke the atmosphere, a robotic voice could be heard and the rocket came crashing back down to the surface. The rocket traveled all around the map through various portals, eventually shot out from Loot Lake creating a huge rift in the sky. This has caused a lot of the speculation surrounding what exactly is going on in Fortnite. The rift in the sky has been getting bigger and bigger each day. This is similar to how developers treated the comet in Season 4. Places around the Fortnite map, such as Motel, Tomato Town, and Lonely Lodge have seen smaller but growing rifts. Promotional Teaser Image released by Epic Games promoting Fortnite: Season 5 According to Steven Ry, an IGN Staff Member, data miners have also found files for new areas and points of interest on the map. Could we be getting a brand new map once Season 5 drops? Epic Games released a teaser image for Fortnite: Season 5 that has everyone drawing even more speculation. The teaser image depicts the rift that is found in the sky currently around the map but also what appears to be an Egyptian type Sphinx. One Reddit user believes the character is Bastet, an Ancient Egyptian goddess, but developers have yet to comment on the true intentions of the image. This Reddit theory however would certainly fit into the theories that many have about Fortnite: Season 5 being based upon time travel. We can read and hear all these speculations and theories but one thing is for certain: No one will known the true meaning behind Fortnite: Season 5 until it drops on July 12th! So gear up and get on that hype train for Fortnite: Season 5! Check out more information about the theories surrounding Fortnite: Season 5 on IGN: http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/07/09/fortnite-season-5-teaser-image-unveiled

    Advice from a KSI Leader

    Coming from a leader who has been around the block a few times, I can tell you that the only thing in KSI that stays constant is, ironically, change. I first joined KSI in January 2011 and since have had my fair share of ups and downs throughout my time in KSI. I am sure many of those reading this may also have experienced/are experiencing similar situations (and if not, you for sure will). I have learned countless amounts of skills through all the consequences and improvements that my actions have caused over the years to promote change or, in fact, prevent change. I would like to share the number one thing that I have learned that if everyone in the community worked on together, we could make KSI better, stronger, and healthier today and that is to stay true to yourself and your beliefs and not being afraid to express it. What does being true to yourself mean? Can’t that be seen as egotistical? Although it can be turned into an ego quickly if handled properly, staying true to yourself is the best thing you can do for your KSI Career. Obviously, we can’t always agree with every way different situations are handled in KSI, but that being said, we can’t also fear to be wrong. If you start allowing others to model you after themselves you lose your creativity and individuality, thus muting out many amazing ideas / ideas-to-be that you could share with KSI. Once everyone is thinking alike, KSI becomes a sort of boring, grey place where there is no real gain as we are apart of the community. Far too often I have seen people hold back an idea because it may just sound too silly to be feasible to implement into KSI when in reality they are so close to the best solution. When we hold your voice back it also takes away the chances for dialogue between yourself and other’s ideas that actually could lead to the best solution for any issue that KSI could throw out at you. Allowing one person think of the rest of us is selfless. We then have no one to blame but ourselves when we don’t agree with the direction of the community and felt it could have gone better. You can’t expect to always have the support of many but simply voicing your idea in a constructive manner is always accepted in KSI. Tell your leadership “Hey, I have an idea that I would like to share on how I think this could be better” or “Could we try out this idea?” I can assure you that not a single leader in KSI would ever tell you no, never going to happen or to leave them alone and drop it. So long as you keep it positive and express interest in helping the entire squad, division, or community, it will never be seen as ego, rather, it is seen as amazing leadership qualities! What is amazing about KSI is that if you take outside of KSI and take that tip into your real life, you may notice positive changes there too. As humans, we have this social pressure to be right 100% of the time so we would rather not take the risk of being wrong, so we hush up. I am by no means saying that once you voice your opinions/thoughts that you automatically are correct, that would be too ideal, but there is that chance for change. Feel free to have KSI be a sort of testing ground if you are too afraid to try this out in your personal life at this point. Try using your voice in your squad/division and give constructive help/thoughts/ ideas/opinions and see the changes that occur. If I had had this information sooner in my KSI Career I think I could have gotten way more out of KSI, so I encourage you all to at the very least, try.

    Update to Xbox Avatars

    We have all spent some serious time in creating our Xbox Live avatars over the years since their introduction to the Xbox 360 in late 2008. Whether we made them look comparable to how we look in person or end up becoming Master Chief in a tuxedo top, short shorts, and combat boots, we all have come to enjoy the characters that represent us while on Xbox Live. The selection of how we can make our avatars look though hasn’t changed much at all over the 9 years that they have been apart of the Xbox Live experience. There were numerous minor changes, such as the addition of the prop store, but the selection choices kept our characters very limited on how far / how close to ourselves we could push the avatar; that however is about to change! At the most recent E3 conference, the Vice President of Xbox, Mike Ybarra, revealed the updates to the avatar editor, calling it Avatar 2.0, that was supposed to originally be released Fall 2017. This week, Mike Ybarra tweeted out informing Xbox Users that the upgrade is being pushed back to early 2018 now, however from the teasers and images promoting the upgrade, as Mike says in his tweet, “patience pays off”. As seen in the article image, the level of customization is mass compared to what it currently allows. The diversity that Xbox is allowing users to consider is extremely mass too as the promotion video (linked at the bottom of the article) shows avatars in wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and even allowing for avatars to wear anything in the store to null out any gender issues. The level of care and consideration for all walks of people is something that was lacking up until now. The avatars themselves also come to life with the redesigned face, actions, attitudes, and so much more customization options. Bryan Saftler, a Lead Product Manager for Xbox says, “We built these from the ground-up, they’re being built in Unity which is a whole new engine. Avatars are meant for whatever you want your digital self to represent. We don’t want to put you in a box, there are no more checkboxes, no matter what you think you look like or what you want to present online.” An official release date for the update has yet to be announced, however, this is something that will likely be released in early 2018 so keep your eyes out for it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpMBrrgQ3Jo
  7. Hey do you have an Xbox one I have several people asking as well as myself who would like to know more about the productions team. It would great if we could speak sometime this evening.

    Community Focus: Lost Empire

    Community Focus: Lost Empire By: Chaoticz News Team Writer **2017 banner** Guess who’s back… back again? Lost Empire’s back! Tell a friend… For those who did not hear, very recently Lost Empire was revived from the ashes of KSI History. LE was a division many years ago, a flagship division of sorts at its time. They are back once again and with some familiar faces! Lost Empire is an old division, but just how old are they? GIVEAWAY TIME! Comment below what year LE was first created; the first person with the correct answer wins a 14 day Xbox Live Gold Code. Originally created by KSI Legacy 7, Lost Empire was not a split division; divisions started from scratch were not uncommon in this time and Lost Empire proved that it works. Throughout the many years that LE existed many leaders were created - KSI TEX 7, J3xRG, KSI JO3 7, KSI Lil Cutie, KSI Truth 7, and KSI CadJuice 7, to name a few. KSI Legacy 7 eventually moved on to become a Co-Creator. KSI TEX 7 was one of many legends in the making who started out in Lost Empire. Recruited into Sparta LE in 2006, TEX eventually moved up to as high as Director. She was either in or over: Lost Empire {LE}, UnderGround {UG}, Most Wanted {MW}, Elite Unit {EU}, and Krime Syndicate {KS}, contributing to the builds of each division. TEX was described as being a very respected and strong female figure in KSI. In the Web Operations side of KSI, TEX also achieved the following: Chief Information Specialist {CIS}{2011}, Chief Advisor {CA}{2009-2011}, Chief Operations Officer {COO}{Date Unknown}, and Information Officer {IO}{2009}. In the history of Lost Empire, there was a consistent pattern of squads being closed, then reopened, then closed, etc. This therefore, has resulted in not too many squads existing in Lost Empire’s history. Squads that have previously existed in Lost Empire are as follows: Aztec Maya Pompeii Rome Vanguard Athens Sparta Mongol Atlantis Olympus Babylon Greek Troy Where did it all go wrong? What happened to Lost Empire? As far as history shows, Lost Empire was one of many divisions that departed KSI Global in 2011 when KSI FuzzyMeeps 7 created his alternate KSI gaming community, more commonly known as “.org”, in reference to their website ksiglobal.org which contrasts to our website ksiglobal.com. As to what happened to Lost Empire over there, we don’t know the details, simply that it failed and eventually died off. However, Lost Empire is back and kicking a**, but where exactly did it come from and who is in charge? Lost Empire in this current day has four squads. Atlantis, Rome, Knightswatch, and Sentinel - Rome and Atlantis being squads in the previous Lost Empire. - Lost Empire is a mixture of both Final Reality {FR} and Twisted Reality {TR} squads. Final Reality, a division of people that up until being shut down were dealing with some struggles; Twisted Reality, a major flagship division in KSI currently, put their heads together for a solution. Twisted Reality sent one squad - Light {a Destiny squad}, which was ready to split. - KSI Spoonz, General of Light TR, split his squad and created Knightswatch whilst renaming Light to Rome. Final Reality sent its remaining squad Supreme {a BO3 squad} over, which was renamed to Atlantis upon creation of the division. Sentinel {a Destiny, CoD, and For Honor squad} is a PlayStation 4 squad within Lost Empire which consists of the remaining members from the division Blades of the Eternal, which until its recent shut down was the sole PS4 division of KSI. KSI Mizz Airy 7, - Co-Founder over: Light, Chronos, Valenwood, and Darkness - within Twisted Reality, was promoted to Founder over Lost Empire. LE’s two Co-Founders are: KSI Bojangles 7 {Over Atlantis} and KSI Spoonz {Over Sentinel, Rome, and Knightswatch}. I asked Mizz Airry 7 how she felt about bringing back old divisions in KSI, she replied, “I love the idea of resurrecting some of the old flagship divisions because it restores a sense of our history and identity as KSI.” “I also want to highlight how new and old can come together to bring KSI back to the forefront of gaming and create an environment that will set the foundation for the next generation.” In KSI we have leaders and members from all sorts of old divisions. However, we have very few LE ‘oldies’ still in our midst. KSI Stylez, KSI Anatomy 7, and KSI Anubis 7 are some of the few that remain. KSI Anubis 7 had something to say when I asked him about Lost Empire, New vs Old, “It's a great idea! Veterans like myself know KSI from their old divisions especially the old flagship divisions. Those divisions are what made KSI great with the people in them. It's nice to see them return. I would like to see more return so that the new members can be a part of the history these divisions have. LE holds a dear place in my heart it's where I started and I want to be here when I retire.” KSI Anubis 7 was in Lost Empire nearly 10 years ago; he will get to experience the new Lost Empire whilst comparing it to his old experience. In one word, Anubis described Lost Empire as “Memorable”.. A division where he was able to grow as a leader up to the point of Division Leader. Now sitting as Rome LE General, I have no doubt that Anubis will make it to the top again. Everyone's least favorite User Support Admin, Anatomy 7 was even in Lost Empire! As stated in his history topic, Anatomy and his best friend at the time KSI Ranger 14 illegally transferred to Sparta LE, - which at the time was a dead squad that someone had brought back without notifying leadership. - Anatomy 7 was a 3LT at the time before he was then found out in regards to his illegal transfer; KSI Chaos 7 transferred him back to Last Strike {LS} and mercifully avoided a DNH. Together with the current leadership and the history of the old leadership, KSI Mizz Airy 7 and her team will make Lost Empire greater than it previously was! I interviewed KSI Silvu 7, - previously Director of Twisted Reality {TR} and Final Reality {FR} - , but now Director over Loster Empire {LE} and Twisted Reality {TR}; Q: “What is your opinion on bringing back old divisions from KSI’s history?” A: “I think that bringing back some of the older divisions is a great idea, it allows members to experience some of the history of KSI and get to grips with the legacy which we have.” Q: “What are your goals for Lost Empire as a Director?” A: “I think that moving forward there are a couple of goals which I would like to see achieved: firstly is a growth which is steady and well managed coupled with training that will see some of the future leaders of KSI blossom and come into their own. I’m also looking forward to seeing regular game nights and social aspects so we can really enjoy what matters most here at KSI. having fun.” Q: “Are there any current leaders or upcoming leaders in Lost Empire you would like to give a shout out to?” A: “I could go on for hours as there is a whole host of great people in LE that deserve to be mentioned but I will limit myself. First is KSI Mizz Airy, she’s the founder leading the way in LE, and with a wealth of experience she really has the skill set to take these guys straight to the top of the pack. Second is KSI Spoonz, I haven’t had the most to do with Spoonz but when I have been around him I could instantly tell that he has a lot of energy and some great ideas, a real force to be reckoned with. Last but certainly not least is KSI Beat 7, Beat is a guy that you can easily approach when you have a problem, he’s a natural leader and I expect we will see some great things from him in the future.” There you have it. Look out for Lost Empire in lobbies and parties, they are going to be a strong force. For nostalgia sake, below are old Lost Empire forums banners: **2009-2011 banner** **2007 banner** **2007 banner**
