    From Boots to Screen By: KSI Snipers Logic FG C-SGT (a.k.a. iFakieSniper) Some in this world take the oath to put their country before themselves and are even willing to sacrifice their lives to serve their country. But what happens when they take off the uniform? Where do the knowledge and those skills go? From behind the wire to behind the screen, take a look at how service members bring in potentially great leadership skills and a sense of brotherhood/sisterhood to our KSI family. Soldiers From being a man or woman in a uniform to a gamer, what would you see? Leadership skills? PTSD? Rudeness? These are among other questions we may have. Personally, I see how everything could potentially be a great asset to our community. Many men and women of today's society will never truly understand what it means to put their lives on the line for a country that could care less nowadays. When you see a soldier who is just getting home from a nasty place in this world, what crosses your mind? Is he “okay”? Are they the same as they were before they left? Many of our veterans are either in a hospital or on the streets because they have left to fight for this country, and, when they returned, they weren't the same. They come back physically different, or even mentally altered. Meet our Veterans Let's take a look at some experiences and see photos from a few of our members who either served or are currently serving in the military, stateside and overseas. HoneyBadger When I asked Honeybadger of Leviathan in Fallen Angels, “Do you have any leadership skills that you learned while in the military that helps with our community family?” Honeybadger responded with this statement: “The army taught me how to delegate tasks down to my guys so as to not get overwhelmed myself, I have enough confidence in my ability to lead in the army and in KSI from my time taking care of my battle buddies. In the army I'm responsible for getting my guys what they need, whether it be an ear to listen too, behavioural health, or if they are depressed and in a very dark place. So when anyone in my squad or otherwise needs an ear, I'm there.” KSI Ares 70 R-MAJ When I asked, “Do you have any experience you'd like to share? For example, what has the military offered you in leadership skills that you brought into KSI?” KSI Ares 70 R-MAJ responded with this statement: “I wouldn't be the man I am today without the training I received in the military. I was provided with a solid foundation to build upon from the very start in basic. I was provided with many opportunities to expand my knowledge base and lead others in many different environments. Everything from field operations to working behind a desk. I was provided training early on in my career at Airman Leadership School which was a requirement to actually start supervising other troops in an administrative capacity. I received additional training at the NCO Academy which prepared me to be a Senior NCO. I have had civilian leadership classes, but all have failed in comparison to the leadership training I received in the military. The core values of the Air Force is what I have accredited to most of my success. 1. Integrity, 2. Service before self, and 3. Excellence in all we do. Hard to fail at leadership if you stick to that.” Then I asked him, “And how do you implement that in today's society and in our family community?” He provided this amazing comment: “I treat everyone with the respect they deserve and consistently enforce the standards equally across the board. As leaders, we must be firm but fair. Decisions I make are without emotion and well thought out. I find it best to try and always have a game plan before I have to engage in any disciplinary type issues. I always play out several scenarios in my head in advance. Now, not all situations allow you to prepare in advance, so staying calm is key. Another key leadership quality is to lead by example. It's hard to earn trust and credibility but you can lose it in a blink of an eye.” Owner of this article is KSI Sniper's Logic Cover image from Sputnik International

    Three years have passed since Tom Clancy's The Division revealed a virus-stricken New York City. For the Division agent, however, it's only been seven months, and Washington D.C. has sent reports of an emerging civil war. As though we didn't have enough to deal with already. The beta in February sent players into the heart of the nation's capital to assist the survivor efforts in maintaining control of the White House. A few other missions were available in the area, allowing the player a glimpse of what was to come. And I do mean glimpse. Tom Clancy's Division 2's campaign is reportedly 40 hours long, but that's not all. The Dark Zone, a mixed PvE/PvP area, makes a comeback. Unlike its predecessor, this one includes PvP modes at launch. And then there's the Endgame content. Supposedly the game doesn't even start until after level 30. Additionally, players will receive a year of content, absolutely free. That's right, no season pass required. Venture forth and explore the virtual rendering of D.C. in crisis in a 1:1 scale of the capital city in this upcoming release. Speaking from experience, don't go alone. Release date: 15 March 2019 Early access (pre-order): 12 March 2019, midnight local time. (Image from game.co.uk)

    I didn't want to beat around the bush with this or play for suspense. As the title of the article says, I will be officially retiring in May 2019 and will not be seeking re-election for Executive Director. I have been apart of this community in some capacity for a little over 12 years. It's been one hell of ride. I have gained so much from this community and it's members over the years. So much so that I can honestly say that KSI has played a huge role in developing me into the person I am and the leader I am in the real world. In my time I've established friendships that have lasted for more than a decade and have had the privilege to work with some of the best leaders this community has ever seen. From being a General in Homicide SS, to being Executive Director KSI has helped me create memories and lessons that I will carry with me through the rest of my life. KSI has also been there for me in some pretty dark points in my life, and to be able to rely on my friends and fellow members during those periods is a gift I'll never be able to truly pay back. This community has been my home since I first got an original X-Box and it gave me the best possible gaming experience I can ask for. Prior to this re-build JT, Poot and I had a very defined vision of what we wanted this community to be. It was finally my chance to make KSI the community it always had the potential to be. We wanted a community that was as drama free as possible, a relaxed and enjoyable environment for our members, a leadership base that reflected all the great qualities a leader should have, quality over quantity and putting our people in the best spot for them to succeed and by extension putting the community in the best position to succeed. We had a few stumbles out of the gate as we tried to get our bearings. There was a period where we thought we were just going to be the harbingers of another stagnate, failed era. 8 months in and that could be further from the truth. With the amazing level of hard work from the Board, Elderpoot, Division and Department Leadership and the member base, KSI is more than on it's way to enjoying the greatest era in our history. Drama is practically non-existent when compared to prior generations. We have a group of leaders that are everything we look for in a new wave of innovative leadership. Our member count continues to grow without sacrificing quality. We have cultivated an environment that encourages hard work and drive from our leaders and members as well as maintaining a positive gaming experience for everyone in KSI. It is because of all these things, and more, that I feel comfortable to finally retire for good. The community is in great and capable hands. Our future is bright thanks to all the members and leaders that are in place. Our success isn't dependent on any one person, but rather dependent on all of you guys working together for the same goals. I just think it's time for me to step back and not get in the way of the new generation of membership. We need leaders at the top that still have that fire to be the best they can possibly be strictly because they want to see this community grow and not because they care about titles or power. I will be nominating KSI Elderpooter 7 as my replacement for Executive Director. The Board will vote on the this in May and I have full confidence that Pooter will be this communities next top guy. You gals and guys couldn't ask for a better candidate. Poot has almost single handedly represented the Senior Leadership of KSI and has done so flawlessly. His vision for KSI is even greater than mine. He has seen our potential and over the past couple months has moved heaven and earth to put us in our current position. He will continue to be one of the major factors of our continued success. There's not one other person that I would entrust this community to and KSI is in great hands with Poot at the helm. It's been fun guys, KSI Kered 7

    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.
