    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

    Author: KSI Chimpy Fatal Genesis was my first home when I initially joined KSI about 8 months ago. I’m proud to announce that they have done something that we have been looking forward to for a while here in KSI, splitting PS4 division, FG. Infinite Reality, or IR for short, is the newest division to breathe life into KSI. FG has accomplished so much in KSI since I first joined and even though I left my home for a new division FG will always be home base for me. We need strong leadership and teamwork to make the new division, and I am confident in the leadership that IR will have. Congratulations to everyone who made this split possible and to the new division leader of IR, KSI Riverrzz 7. With the split comes many promotions and opportunities for our members. KSI Johnson 7 will be promoted to Director for all his hard work in getting FG to a splitting position. KSI Poseidon 7 is the new Division Leader for FG and the future Co-Division Leaders are in the pit training for their next step. The leadership in both divisions is solid and sharp. I have no doubt that both divisions will thrive and improve our home in KSI. I asked everyone for their opinion on the division split and where they see it going in the future and those who responded had some interesting things to say. It’s nice to know that everyone is on the same page and sees the work that needs to be done. This accomplishment is what keeps KSI alive and growing. Being able to split your divisions and squads is one of the best feelings for me. Getting a successful split, seeing your family rally together to finish the process and rebuild feels great. Here’s what our members have to say about the split: “I'm excited to see where things will go. It's a huge step for PlayStation in KSI. I remember when KSI split last year and PS4 was the small division. Now to see it at the forefront of KSI is amazing to me, and I'm glad I was able to help it get there. Working both in the limelight and behind the scenes has been a great experience and has taught me a lot about leadership. I want to see both divisions flourish, and I think they will.” -KSI Icespot 7 “I am very proud of all of the members of FG on this accomplishment. Them splitting is a testament to all of the hard work that everyone puts into KSI on a daily basis. With the split, I see both of these divisions flourishing as they continue to help grow KSI!” -KSI Elderpoot 7 “My thought on it is that I think it needed a split personally. KSI itself is gonna last, they put in too much work into this community and they ain’t gonna waste it. The role I feel like I played in is, that I did the best I can do for everyone and my squad.” -XxGhostkiller178 “My thoughts on the div split are that my members, officers and div staff have busted their butts to help us build a division we could be proud of and, because of their hard work and my own, we have been very successful at building up our squads, leadership and staffing, in general, to be the best division we can be. I see us building up both divisions to have more successful division splits in the future. As long as we continue to focus on quality over quantity, we will continue to have great things to come in our near future. I feel my role in the division split has been to help with mentoring those who are new to leadership in KSI. I spent time with all the officers and leaders I have worked with to get them experience with sharing in the decision making process. "From the time I was general, all the way up to when I became div leader has been spent making sure my members have a say in what we do as a squad and captain and up gets a say in who gets promoted to officer positions. I consult my div staff regularly to see what their opinions are on the various topics we handle and, we come to a mutual decision on how to handle issues. It has done us very well as the officers and divisional staff get on the job training if they are less experienced and get to feel like they are a part of this decision making process whether they are a new leader or an old one. I look forward to continuing to work with these guys and gals in the future.” -KSI Johnson 7 “Well, it was certainly a long time coming. Coming from the KSI I came from back in 2013, I didn’t envision this happening at all. There was a point in my KSI career where I thought PlayStation would never rise back up, and I had lost confidence in myself as a leader after all the trials and tribulations I went through in TreadStone. Throughout my time there, I felt my work there was under appreciated, and there were times people were rewarded for the work I put in....the entire culture has changed here for the better because we finally have the right people in place. It makes me proud to see we are finally making this happen, this was only a pipe dream in 2013. "We’ve already surpassed the old division on PS3, and I believe we’re on the up. Like I said before, we’ve got the right people in place to get the job done. We aren’t playing the favoritism card that was so heavily played in TS, we’re putting people in place who genuinely care about this community and want to make it flourish. The role I feel I played is a huge one. I helped bring Exodus squad to a split and brought back a dying Rainbow Six Siege squad. This was all very personal for me, when I came back to KSI I set my sights on helping whatever way I can to eventually, finally become a 7. To be able to achieve what been wanting for 6 years, and to be a tool in this division split is a huge accomplishment for me. I’m massively proud of what i’ve been able to create here, and even more proud to have helped create something bigger and better than what we had on PlayStation 3.” -KSI HulkHogan 7 “I'm very excited for this division split. this is the first division split on PlayStation in KSI history, and I’m really excited to be part of it! I've been here for more than a year now, and there were multiple times when FG overcame really tough odds. I see us turning this div split into many more! I think the biggest role I played in this was keeping the Destiny side of the division thriving. We went through some tough situations, and I felt I along with a really great group of leaders turned it into its own division. However, I wouldn't have been able to do any of this without the other leaders and friends I’ve met here and worked with. if i miss anyone im sorry, but the Destiny side of the division wouldn't be here without Ice, Ronald, Warbling, Johnson, and Viktory. Huge thanks to all of them and any others I’ve missed!” -KSI Riverrzz 7 “This will be my first div split so I’m extremely excited about it! I think it’s going to be great. I’m really looking forward to the changes. This split is happening in a very healthy way. So many have worked very hard, and this split shows everyone’s dedication. As for the future, it’s looking bright. We will be in different divs but still be working on KSI as a whole family unit; that part won’t change. This growth is making room for more opportunities and positions.” -KSI THEDRAMAMAMA 7 “I think it's wonderful. It's great to see the PlayStation side really growing and being embraced in this iteration of KSI. It’s a very positive development and shows that this community has changed so much over the years to get to this point. It's an excellent time for our community. It’s the first div split since KN broke off from KSI, so exciting times. Can't wait to see what happens next! I see KSI continuing to grow, and go through this process of developing new Divisions and Squads, more members and more leaders consistently as we have for years. I think we're finally beginning to approach that point where we can take the next step; reaching 1000 members, maybe 2000 this time next year. I don't really feel that I played any direct role in the process, but like any officer I contribute in the ways that are important at the squad level. Training, organizing events, contributing to recruitment, involving members in the day to day activities. "All onus to the success of this process goes to the leaders who organized it. Dealing with accurate rosters and ensuring everyone is aware of what's going on, kudos to them for the smooth transition! Last question: how do you feel about seeing the Division you created split make you feel? I'm honestly very proud. I started this Division in late of 2017 as kind of a KSI afterthought. Lost Empire Division had lost their Division Staff entirely. A bunch of pandemonium ensued. When it was all said and done, KSI Cali 7 wanted there to be less confusion about the PlayStation group being mixed in with Xbox. He put me in charge of the remnants of our group and started up FG, with Exodus and Leviticus as the first squads. To see the Div in a great spot now, after a lot of work, lots of members coming and going, in the midst of some big time changes for KSI; I couldn't be happier. It's always been in good hands. And I am looking forward to being apart of the new Division; Infinite Reality.” -KSI Viktory 7 (Original creator of FG) All this is true. We’ve had a lot of people working on this for some time. Everyone in FG and IR deserve thanks for what they have accomplished. Now all that’s left is to keep growing and being the best we can be. The moral of this story? Work hard and never give up, if you want to go somewhere in KSI you can if you work hard enough and stay true to your goals. Thank you to everyone who made this split possible.

    What Does KSI Mean to You? By: Frostiie Writer Knowledge, Strength, and Integrity. Three word's that mean a whole lot to the members of KSI Global Gaming. Whether you are new to the family or an old head of the community, KSI seems to attract many gamers over multiple platforms. KSI is a great online based gaming community where gamers can explore their own interests and discover new people who have the same interest who you can hang out with. (KSI is a lot like a Family and we enjoy hanging out with each other; Its a place to come and have fun. -KSI Migraine 7). In KSI we are all about making memories with each other and having a good time. Since 2003 KSI Has been giving gamers a good time with a friendly environment. (KSI Halo 2 Custom Games were so fun. I would be at my friend's house playing on his Xbox with KSI and my parents would call me asking where I was and I would say I'm on my way. Two hours go by and they would call again I would say I'm on my way. By this time it would be 11pm on a school night and they would come get me p***ed off but I could not put down the controller. -KSI CurlyFry). Now I personally thought this was so funny because I can remember myself doing close to the same exact thing on Modern Warfare 3 Myself. Now KSI is not only about gaming, this online gaming community offers positions in GFX Design, Productions, and much more on the forums which allow you to explore and perfect different skills of interest. With programs like the gamer pic request on the GFX sub-forum or KSI live streaming to Twitch that any member can sign up to do really gives you the chance to practice and hone your skills. Web Ops has played a huge step in me discovering who I am and what some interest I like that I feel like without it I would never of known. KSI does seem to have a huge impact on players (Since being in KSI the influence of KSI has grown tremendously than what I thought it was originally going to be like. -KSI ClaiireBear. I can relate as i have seen it in members myself. With being a Family/Friendly oriented type of community people tend to grow bonds with each other and start to trust and understand one another. But we do have to make sure we have the Knowledge to keep moving in a positive direction, the Strength to be there for one another and the Integrity to stand by each other in our community. KSI means a great deal to me and I know it means a great deal to my fellow member's so let's keep up what we are doing and remember to have fun gaming together.

    As a former die-hard Destiny fan, I avoided news about BioWare’s Anthem, convinced it would be a copy of Bungie’s work. Now that the release is nearly here, and Destiny 2 was extremely underwhelming, I can no longer ignore Anthem’s presence. Anthem, it seems, does not refer to the world itself but rather a power that can create and destroy. Which means that a baddie wants it like a kid wants candy. The inhabitants of Fort Tarsis, called Freelancers, have something to say about that. In this game, players are called pilots. Why? Because they control a Mjolnir-style supersuit called a Javelin. But it can fly. And swim. And do some other neat stuff. There are four basic Javelin types to choose from - Storm, Ranger, Colossus, and Interceptor - each of which has its own merits ranging from elemental attacks to lumbering defense and heavy hitting attacks. From there, the pilot can customize their Javelin further, creating different types of layouts for different encounters in the world. Everything is customizable from the armor to the boosts, enabling players to change the Javelin to fit their individual play style. Additionally, there are two types of leveling systems: a pilot score, and a javelin score. Similar to many other loot-based games, there’s a tier system in place that ranges from Uncommon to MasterWork. What Anthem seems to be striving for is to take the varying elements from previous shooter RPGs that made those games great and smash them together in a very ambitious effort. From the gameplay footage, I can see things that look like Mass Effect, The Division, Titanfall, Overwatch, and, of course, Destiny. Granted, many of these games share similarities already, but it looks like Anthem will be the top dog this year if BioWare can successfully pull it off. If you happened to pre-order the game, the VIP demo ran this weekend from January 25 to 29 after some initial issues. KSI players from across the community took to it immediately. “So far it’s great,” said KSI Harley 97, General of Leviathan FA. “Very smooth gameplay. Only issue I have is the loading screens taking forever.” I was able to watch the General of Integritas IR, KSI Ronald_McFallin, play as a Ranger. He directed his Ironman-esque Javelin in a couple of encounters with Scars. Even while on fire, he was able to boost over the head of a Scar Enforcer and use a laser ability to take it down. An open demo of Anthem will be available February 1 through 3 before the game releases February 22 on EA Origin, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep an eye out for KSI streamers this weekend!

    Written by KSI Alastair There is some interesting news for Halo fans. As of January 28th, we now have a community representative apart of the Halo Infinite development team. This will mean, along with all the other ways to give feedback to 343i, we now a direct way to communicate our thoughts and ideas for Halo Infinite. Justin Robey aka @RobeyoneKenobi on Twitter is now the Director of Player Voice at 343i, and he will "work with the Halo player, to have an active voice throughout the development, launch, and lifetime of Halo Infinite... using different methods to ensure that Halo Infinite is built along with the community, and that players voices are being heard." * For more clarification of what Justin will be doing, the Halo community manager, Sketch says, "Justin sits on the development team to do critical work inwards and will partner closely with our community team, research, analytics, etc."* Essentially, he has the authority to say, "the players want this, do it,” and the dev team will do it. 343i has been putting a focus on player feedback in being heard, and this will only help 343i's image and will, of course, help with sales when Infinite launches. Let's take a look at who Justin is and what he has done. Justin Robey has worked for Microsoft for least 17 years; his roles included Software test engineer and then senior producer for nearly two decades. He's a Mixer partner and co-hosts Powerbuilds and This Week In Esports on Mixer. Despite what Justin tries to present himself as, he isn't "just a fan" of Halo. He's a Microsoft veteran, and is very connected to them in his professional life. He will not be the "fresh perspective" 343i needs for Halo. I'm not saying he was never a genuine fan of Halo, nor that he isn't now, but the fact is that he's a Microsoft employee through and through, and his job is to ensure they look good. His role as "Director of Player Voice" is merely a ploy to make 343i appear to be taking more player feedback. I seem negative about this, but I am actually happy this development happened, because it means we as Halo fans have even more ways to voice our opinion and now with someone with authority to make it happen. I said ploy, because it is mostly to create good PR for them, but it can make a difference. Here is the main question though, will Justin Robey be able to take our feedback and make large important changes to Halo Infinite? If the majority of the Halo Infinite fan base has an issue with main features with the game, such as the story or sandbox, will Justin make a difference? I would say, since Justin is a Microsoft employee first, and a fundamental Halo fan second, Justin will not force changes. That is a hard pill to swallow, but it's ok. I believe Justin will have effects on playlists, updates, weapon tuning, events, and things of that nature. That will still be more than we have had in previous titles, and it will make a large difference in my opinion. So this is where I hand this to you, the reader. What are your thoughts on this development? What do you think about our new "Director of Player Voice"? How will it affect Halo Infinite at launch and how will it affect Halo Infinite during its life span? * @RobeyoneKenobi on Twitter * @Ske7ch on Twitter * Cover image is a compilation of those posted by Microsoft and Justin Robey and are not in their native format.

Examples of organization skills: Well I don’t wanna type an essay for you to have to read so i’ll keep it short and sweet, I keep every. single. thing. in my room organized. Deodorant, body spray, lotion, everything has its own place. At school I keep every last paper in a folder organized between notes, HW, and class work. I cannot stand a single thing being out of order as i am probably the most OCD person you’ll ever meet  4. Why do you want this role: Organization is something I enjoy with a deep passion and when i graduate college i would love to handle organizion for some company. I wish to be as much of an assistance to KSI as i possibly can.

    The Hall of Fame is one of the longest standing traditions in KSI. The members included in the Hall of Fame are the greatest leaders this community has ever seen, with their accomplishments still echoing into this new era. They embody all the ideals and skills we look for in a leader. Dedicated, focused, loyal, innovative, fair and open minded, intelligent, to just name a few. Over the past couple years the concept of the Hall of Fame has, sadly, been diluted from what it once was. The prestige wore off and people began to see it as nothing more than a collection of names. The deeds accomplished by leaders like KSI Oldman 7, KSI Shamen 7 and KSI Apollyon 7 were forgotten and they weren’t replaced by anything new. It’s been a few years since someone was officially inducted the proper way. Because of that, the Hall of Fame isn’t what it used to be. That changes today. From this day forward the Hall of Fame should be seen as a KSI career milestone where your name and deeds can be remembered for years to come. We’re going to put the prestige and pride back into it. It’ll be the example of what every great leader can achieve. So, JT and myself couldn’t think of a better way to start reforming the Hall of Fame by inducting three new names that will help bring the standard back to where it should be. KSI Johnson 7, KSI Poseidon 7 and KSI Chaoticz 7 have officially been inducted into the KSI Hall of Fame. Their dedication and work they’ve put into the community make this an easy decision. KSI is surging right now and a culture has been established like we’ve never seen before. And this largely has to do with everything these 3 have done. They are the exact standard JT and I envisioned our leaders should meet when we discussed excellence in our leadership. Poseidon, Johnson and Chaoticz have done more than enough to join the leaders currently in the Hall of Fame, and we are lucky as a community to have them working for the betterment of our future. A future that is good hands. Sincerely, KSI Kered 7 Executive Director

    A Year in the Life of KSI Global Written by: Chaoticz 7 Edited by: ThatLilyDoe Alas, we approach the end of another year. We’ve had our ups, and we’ve had our downs; we’ve had our gains and our losses. However, as the celebrations near and the resolutions roll out, we take a moment to reflect on what this year has brought. 2018 started off shaky. With leadership slacking and growth lacking, we needed an effective change. Once again, people came together to develop a plan, make decisions, and take action. In April, the majority of KSI leadership, along with the Xbox member base, decided to depart this community. They formed Killjoy Network (KN). This left the community very low on numbers and leadership, but in reality, left a great opportunity for new leadership and much-needed change. The actions of the previous leadership administration left naught but a handful of leaders and the PlayStation 4 division - Fatal Genesis. In the words of many a KSI leader, “People come and go, but KSI will never die”. It was that motivation that allowed the following leaders to come together and devise a strategy: KSI JT 7, KSI Kered 7, KSI Elderpoot 7, KSI Crusader 7, KSI Vikktory 7, KSI Chaoticz 7, and KSI Toxic 7DS. Thus began the new era of KSI. Each individual agreed to one promise, “If we do this, we cannot give up, we cannot fall down flat. We must continue, work hard, rebuild, and regrow KSI Global”. Fatal Genesis continued to be the cornerstone of the rebuild over the following months. Currently over 300 strong, this division, under the devoted leadership of KSI Johnson 7, has provided a dedicated home for KSI members on the PlayStation 4. Coming very far over the past year, FG recently went through two squad splits - creating Sanctus FG and Cerberus FG. The division now has a Division Leader, two Founders, three Co-Founders, and 6 awesome squads. Once the powerhouse of KSI, the Xbox side found itself crumbling into near extinction. Those who remained sought the perfect name to show their new origin yet inspire the future for the division that would grow to be the new foundation of KSI on the Xbox platform. The name Fallen Angels was agreed on for the first Xbox division. KSI Chaoticz 7 opened Rapture FA, the first and longest enduring squad, which is based on CoD: World War II. After months of work and various leaders, Rapture FA eventually split to create Judgement FA under the guidance of KSI Migraine 7 and KSI BIG JOHN 7. Around this time, Purgatory FA was created by KSI Vanilla 7 starting out as a Halo 5 squad and eventually transitioning to be a Destiny 2/Battlefield V squad. Redemption FA was then created by KSI Koda 7 to be the first successful Fortnite/PUBG squad. Fast forward to late 2018 when both Rapture FA and Judgement FA (CoD: Black Ops 4 squads) underwent their respective squad splits. Rapture FA split under the leadership of KSI Joker 97, KSI copperhead6, and KSI Harley 97. Judgement FA split under the leadership of KSI Heroiism 7, KSI xTITANx 7, and KSI Chaoticz 7. Fallen Angels, currently over 200 strong, has come so far since the start of the year and overcome many difficulties and obstructions. It wouldn’t be anywhere if not for the members who get on, play, and contribute on a daily basis. During the early stages of the community rebuild, KSI Crusader 7 was given the opportunity to take the structure and prospect of KSI Global over to the PC platform. Grimoire Heart was created and has been growing at a steady rate over the course of the year on World of Warcraft. Closing in on 100 members, it really is great to see how far KSI can stretch out and achieve the goals if we put our minds to it. 2018 started off rocky. However, with the dedication and momentum of every single member in this gaming community, we have blasted through and achieved a great atmosphere and enjoyable place for people to come and share/enjoy. In my personal opinion, seeing KSI at some of its worst and better times, I would like to mention that this is the best I have ever seen this gaming community at and I am extremely proud. Keep up the great work everyone, the only way from here is up! From myself, the Board, and the Senior Leadership of KSI; Happy New Year and all the best for 2019!
