    ...BUT KSI WILL NEVER DIE After over a decade of being around this community, a lot of things start to come into perspective. One of the sayings heard around KSI, even years ago, was "People come and go, but KSI will never die." Seems kind of insensitive at first, doesn't it? After all, every person should matter. And they do. Every person has the ability to contribute great things to KSI and to better themselves through those efforts. But that's the thing, it's up to each individual to decide how much energy they want to put forth. And, in the end, if they want to depart from KSI, that's also their choice. There is so much potential brimming in this community. People from literally all over the world and tons of skill sets take part in the various divisions. Thousands of people are bonding together, learning together, and gaming together. Those bonds can mean you make the best friends in your online life. And if one of them leaves, it can be really painful, more so than you'd think possible with this being an online community. Then you're faced with a decision to follow your friends out the door or stay and continue to push forward with KSI and make other friends. Either way, KSI will survive to see another day, another month, another year. And, for the most part, the community will welcome back those who decided it wasn't for them at that point in time. They'll come back someday. Or they won't. But KSI will never die.

    A story of triumph, determination, and glory. A war that we all can connect to at one point in time within our designated divisions; a division that faced the trials and tribulations of a deserted Empire. A warrior who was appointed to this division by higher leaders, believing if one man can rebuild this ‘Huck' can. KSI Huckleberry 7 (also known as "Huck") came into a troubled Synthetic Reality, but not to take over the division right away. He was there to help the current Division Leader of SR conquer these hardships. SR was a lingering 170 member division still struggling with booters, fluff, and drama. The members understood the severity of their situation and faced the challenge with the mentality that "Nothing Fails Unless You Give Up!" Huck and his team never back down from a fight, no matter the casualties. When Huck got the reigns of SR he made a very bold step to get rid of Kik, gossip, and drama. This was put in place so members could focus on the goal at hand and making sure they followed the standard operating procedure - never say SOG in a SR party. They believe in making risk and, if it fails, they know they have the talent to fix it. The division staff even created their own squad, showing that, no matter the rank, they can go in and recruit and train with the squad officers. This Resurrection was not easy physically or mentally, but with Huck and his team's mentality to never give up, to trust and believe in their members, and putting this division of people first, they were soon on the road to recovery. SR is compared to an estate that burned to ash, until Huck's gallant noblemen took it and didn't look at it as work but as a home that needed loving and care. They build on the key values of loyal, valuable, and passionate members. Huck believed that SR needed a foundation first, motivating the members to do their best as he would for them. The resurrection was helped along by many knowledgeable members of that division who all knew that it's ok to take 2 steps back to go 3 steps forward. Huck connected to the division in a way many people don't realize. He has always wanted to achieve one of the coveted Resurrection awards, and he says, "I don't want to leave SR if my higher ups don't think it’s ready." But if it is, he believes that it is in good hands. This resurrection is a huge stepping stone for KSI, as it shows no matter how hard and tough the struggle in a division may be, if you utilize your resources and trust in each other no matter what division you hail from, it strengthens us and KSI as a whole.

    Each year, nearly a million people die from suicide around the world. As a global organization, supporting opportunities around the world, KSI feels this is an issue that needs to be addressed. Alongside daily support to our members, KSI will be doing special events throughout May-June 2017 to acknowledge and support suicide prevention. Link to Donation page: https://tinyurl.com/ksiasfp (For those that don't want to read the entire article) - A 48-hour stream to raise $2,500 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention on June 10th - A tribute from our military members - Personal stories highlighting how people have overcome their struggle with suicidal thoughts ...and more. Established in 1987, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a voluntary health organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education, and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death. Being based on a militaristic structure, KSI whole-heartedly supports the men and women of the armed services in their respective countries. In 2014, a U.S. Navy studied confirmed that at least 20 veterans a day committed suicide. Brothers and sisters-in-arms stand together to support Got Your Six and other veteran mental health support programs. KSI Global Gaming Network is the result of several people who played together and decided to start a gaming community, which turned into the largest community on Xbox, as well as setting the foundation for many others. Dedicated to bridging age gaps between youth and older players, KSI focuses on building leaders for every age group to reinforce real life work ethics, build skills, and develop goal-oriented lifestyles. The global reach of KSI is limitless, providing opportunities and support to any member, regardless of their country. The KSI community has helped thousands of gamers around the world, and we are committed to furthering that goal. Our wonderful Twitch Team will be streaming different games throughout the support stream, showcasing a couple of tournament rounds, our newly revived all-girls group Sirens, and the various divisions found in KSI. All $2,500 and any extra donations will go directly to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention via a secure link. Donations will be accepted at the time of this article posting until the end of the stream, though any foundation can always use continued support. Be on the lookout for the coming events!

    Athens. Rome. Egypt. These are just many of the few Ancient Empires that embodied the qualities of what working as a team is. They upheld great armies and with those armies they ruled over an expansive amount of land; there leaders helped to navigate, organise, strategize, like a map they lay out the landscape. Except they changed it to how they like it. E.g. Egypt used pyramids to show great power – the bigger the pyramid, the more power they had. With their armies they had great names Of course, today. We don’t have Empires anymore, we developed democracy and with that removed monarchs and suppression of dictators. However, we still develop great leaders -e.g. Nelson Mandela - these people fight for a different purpose: one that helps the abused and relives the government of their control. Now. With this being said, I’ve probably gotten you wondering what the heck this has to do with KSI? Well this directly links with KSI because as a gaming community certain members in the past have develop brutal reputations with themselves while playing games online, this made the whole community directly at the forefront of the battle and we had to rebuild to create what KSI truly is, Knowledge, Strength, Integrity. KSI is built upon the meanings of those words. Knowledge is the facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. Without knowledge we couldn’t have made the six all-inclusive divisions and to do to that we needed teamwork. Strength holds everything together there is a saying, ‘Strength shows not only in the ability to persist, but the ability to start over. This for many squads is what each leader had to do. Rebuild. A city is not built in a day but the love for doing it will last a lifetime. Integrity, a word that has many interpretations. I see it as two meanings: the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, while also being the state of being whole and undivided. This is significant in building squads and divisions; choosing a name for that has to represent KSI, its meaning and value. Like a symbol of god, it has to be something that is recognisable. From my personal experience, I joined KSI late February into SPARTA, I made a choice to make a difference in KSI, for me, my mentor – Zeus – and everyone else in KSI; it was as if I had sworn my life over a bible – a bond which cannot be broken. – Since then, - I have worked with Zeus as he led SPARTA, he truly grasped what it means to be a leader. A king. and with every king there is always an heir to the throne. He taught me the ways of being a leader, the ways of becoming a great mentor and motivator and still to this day I have always shown gratitude for the things he has done. He took me up as a member, mentee and a good friend; form there on a choose not to disappoint. I became Major of SPARTA, tasked with the duty of resurrecting the ancient warriors. Sitting at 40 members in March 9th I have brought it up to 100 members, all showing true qualities of team work and know what hard work is. Now that a am General I am now going to be splitting my squad. This is a huge honour and had me feeling like I was being knighted by the Queen and joining the house of lords. However, in my elapse of excitement and feeling like a small child that has just won a trophy, I remained calm and still had work to do including the burdan of choosing a squad name. All over KSI, Generals/co-founders have chosen different squad names for different reasons, some hold an ancient meaning, while others hold a hope for the future. I however wanted to choose I name that I will come use to teach my mentee’s. I looked for an hour or so debuting different names when I saw how tough it was a then looked for motivation elsewhere. Imagination plays a huge factor when creating a squad, having a vision to be able to create an image of your squad and its members in your head is a quality that not many people develop and will always separate leaders from followers. Using my imagination, a looked for something to help me decide where to look. That’s when I saw a Greek God in the sky, which brought me to think about how the Greeks worshipped Gods, followed Gods, used Gods as motivation. I search the wonderful invention called the internet, I studied it as if I had no other purpose in life. Of course there are obvious names probably flying around your head like Zeus – the god of the sky, lightning, thunder, law, order, and justice. Or Ares - the god of war. Quite on the contrary in my 30 minutes of searching the internet I found out that there is 12 Olympian Gods: Zeus, Hera, Hephaestus, Athena, Hermes, Artemis, Apollo, Dionysus, Ares, Aphrodite, Demeter, and Poseidon. However, these Gods gave birth to separate gods that are just as important. Themis – God of Law, order and justice – was one of those options and as soon as a saw it I found it to be a perfect fit. Reasons? Certain reasons are that he is related to Zeus and Ares which interlinks the idea of power with reasoning. They act as the leaders are Themis follows them according like a child to a parent. Moving on from the historical context of the squad, my new squad will be called Themis. But to make this decision I had to use ideas. Imagination. Integrity to get there. You have to choose the name based off what your vision is for the squad and not to follow your leaders above you, ‘Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk besides me and we can be equal.’ Certain things aren’t as they seem and if u follow them you will never find out what they actually are. ‘Leaders are made; they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that’s is worthwhile.’ Themis will capture that element as a squad and will grow leaders forward as a Themis member.

    KSI Official Discord FAQs & Policies With Discord as popular as it is, Its about time we have some policies, guidelines, and FAQs surrounding the Discord Server system to prevent it from getting out of hand and becoming more of a problem than a helpful system. When utilized correctly, Discord is a great asset to the KSI community and an excellent tool in communication between members. Official KSI Servers KSI has several official servers in the Discord system. Each server has an overall purpose for being created, as well as a set of individuals that manage it. Below is a list of servers along with a point of contact of who's in charge there. KSI Official Clan Ops Server - KSI Mizz Airy, KSI Koda 7 KSI Official Web Ops Server - KSI Mizz Airy, KSI Nex Addo, KSI God of Rage KSI Division Servers Sirens - KSI Mizz Airy, KSI SugarMama 7 Hell Fire - KSI Space Ops 7, KSI N3XUS 7 and KSI HysteriaX 7. Immortal Empire - KSI Big D, KSI N3XUS 7 & KSI Mizz Airy Lost Empire - KSI Mizz Airy, KSI Silvu 7, KSI Cali 7, & KSI N3XUS 7 Reality Dynasty - KSI Mizz Airy & KSI Cali 7 Synthetic Reality - KSI Huckleberry, KSI God of Rage. Twisted Reality - KSI N3XUS 7, KSI Silvu 7, KSI Cali 7 & KSI Mizz Airy. Fierce Uprising - Techh & KSI Mizz Airy Looking For Games Server - SugarBaby, Devil Cat, & KSI Mizz Airy KSI Discord FAQs What is Discord? Discord is a cross-platform chat client that allows users to create & join servers of communities for the purpose of real-time conversation and media sharing. How can I join a server? The list above shows each official KSI Discord Server with links to the profiles of the members that manage them. Simply send them a Private Message requesting a link to join the server and they will be more than happy to provide you one. Why can't I create a KSI Server? You can. Anyone is entitled to create a server for their friends.But it won't be considered an "Official" KSI Server. There is a main server for both Clan Ops & Web Ops. Then, each division & official group is allowed one official KSI server. (Official groups include: Sirens, Pro Teams, or other supported group). If your response is "But I can run it better than these jokers currently in charge!", then its up to you to use your charming personality to convince them to let you help out. Each server has a set of admins dedicated to managing it. Are there specific rules per server? Yes. Each server has the ability to create specific rules relating to their server to help it function better. Does the Code of Conduct apply? Yes. The KSI Code of Conduct applies to all servers (and subsequently, all channels) on the official KSI Server list located above. - What about in NSFW Channels? NSFW Channels operate in a slightly different manner. No, the name isn't "Not Safe For Women", its "Not Safe For Work. Meaning that the content within this channel is usually something you wouldn't want to pull your phone out and have "Sally from HR" see while walking to the coffee room. That being said, content in NSFW channels is deemed "No Man's Land" or "Everyone For Themselves". KSI Leadership, Discord Admins, and the like cannot be held responsible by what you see in there, hear in there, or do in there.* *The only exception is any illegal offenses can (and will) be reported to law enforcement authorities. No discussions of, or material relating to: child pornography, bestiality, incest, or orther illegal acts, etc. Why was I removed from a server? The Official KSI Servers follow all KSI Code of Conduct and Standard Operating Guidelines. Most servers also have additional rules specific to that server, or even channel-specific (such as overuse of the @everyone tag, or being an overall nuisance). With that said, if you violate any of these rules, or are warned to stop any particular behavior by a member of that server's admin team, you're likely to receive a "kick" as a reminder to "knock it off". A kick serves as a gentle reminder that your next step is no longer being allowed on that particular server. Why can I not rejoin a server? Chances are if you cannot rejoin a server even with an invite code, you have likely been banned. This happens if you violate the rules of that server, repeatedly cause conflict within the server, or have violated a rule from the KSI Code of Conduct. KSI Discord Policies & Procedures In order to continue change & adapt to our audience, KSI is adopting the use of Discord as a communication tool for the community. As such, there are certain rules and policies that need to be in play to maintain a sense of order and prevent chaos. These polices may be updated at anytime with or without prior notice. You have no rights. - You are not guaranteed access to any server for any reason. Server admins may deny your access at any time for reasons they see fit. KSI Code of Conduct, SOG, and KSI Handbook Rules apply at all times in all channels (minus NSFW channels with exceptions) Each Division is allowed ONE official KSI server. Any additional servers created by division leadership will not be supported & will be considered unofficial. Discord is In Addition To the forums. Not In Place Of. Please utilize Discord for real-time informal conversation only. Any lengthy, more organized, or structured discussion should be held on the forums. For example: asking how peoples days are? Discord. Changing divisional policy? Forum. Senior Leadership reserves the right to request entry & receive admin rights on any server they feel necessary, at any time, for any reason, without questions asked.
