    Play or Skip: Call of Duty MW

    2019 was home to many great games, including Kingdom Hearts 3 in January, Anthem in February, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Ones in November. Among those popular releases was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This game was officially released on October 25, 2019. As with any game, there are pros and cons. Starting off the list of cons for this game is the game was a big download of over 120GB. Depending on the internet service and the storage space on one’s console, it was taking up to a few days for it to completely download. Recently, there was another update that adds to the size, leaving it to sit at about 153GB. This update was one where no one knew until they logged into the game and went to play. It was also a two-piece update, which some people only had to do one and some did both. Another downside is that the battle pass must be purchased to obtain certain characters and weapons. One last con to this game, is it sometimes takes a while to find a game mode. Some game modes are more popular and are easier to find matches in, while others are not as popular and may take a little more time. On the flip side, there are plenty of pros to this game as well. One of the pros is that by now there are pre-owned copies available at some GameStop locations, but the game is only $60 dollars normally, which is decently affordable. Another pro is the graphics. The graphics and sensibility on this game are a lot smoother than those of Black Ops 4 and previous games. There are also many game modes that are fun for everyone involved with. As previously mentioned, there are game modes that more people are going to enjoy including basic domination and search and destroy, as well as infected and shoot house, and many more. They have most of the modes in both core and hardcore as usual. A big pro that it has, is cross-play. People are able to play games with mouse and keyboard players, ps4 players, pc players, and Xbox players. Call of duty has given the gaming community many great games since 2003 and they continue to improve and make things better as the technology around them gets better. Modern warfare seems to get more positive reviews than negative ones. Ultimately, the consumer will make the choice that is best for them. Allow this to be an aide in the decision making process. Happy gaming to all. Written By: KSI Ethera

    December Member of the Month

    “A leader is best when people barely know he exists…when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will all say: We did it ourselves." - Lao-Tzu Being noticed and chosen as Member of the Month is for some an amazing achievement. To go above and beyond the normal duties of the written description is in itself amazing. This is why we are celebrating two amazing people, KSI Babytree 24 & KSI_KIMBER_1911 this month. ---- "Now that I processed everything, it’s a good feeling. Everyone puts in so much effort for this community, it’s rewarding for what you do for your members and that goes to be recognized." - Babytree24 “I feel honored to be nominated, I love it here in KSI. I feel like KSI is my second family.” Kimber_1911 ---- Quotes about Babytree24 "They are a great and outstanding officer and they do their best in everything they do." "Babytree has grown as a member just as other members have grown in this division. She is excellent access to have not only in her squad but to her members. Joining the education department has truly been her niche and provided her services to help and assist other members with KSI and support their growth. This member is a bit nervous sometimes but finds her way. She has come up a long way and replaced Bubba shortly after his departure. I am extremely proud of her and her accomplishments here in KSI and is why I am nominating her." "Member [Babytree24] has been doing alot for their squad, especially in the absence of their general. Picking up all the slack and growing the squad." --- Quotes about KIMBER_1911 "He has been amazing general and friend anyone can ask for hes been a true role model for me" "I am nominating number [because] he does a good job at running the squad and he is a great guy" "He has stood by his squad regardless of who left, or caused drama. He kept his squad together. He leads his officers to be supportive of each other. He has been reliable. An I’m very happy with the way he communicates with div staff. Always very respectful. He sets the bar high. Quality family member!"

    Game Communities Still Matter

    Humans are social creatures as many studies have pointed out so it comes as to no surprise that gaming communities are extremely popular and have been for a long time. At this current moment, there is a vast amount of these communities that can claim longevity and membership. These communities were not easy to make and didn’t always remain stable. In fact, some go through splits causing massive numbers to leave communities, some don’t make it past console changes, internal disputes and more. Community is defined as “a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals”. The definition best defines what video game communities are all about. Most people join through the common interest of a particular game. For example, recruiting in some communities is done through voice chat during matches or private parties. This is when the current members of the community chat and “screens” the player finding out if they seem to be a good fit for their particular group. This particular set up can be a bit biased though. While the current recruiter may find that they don’t like the player for some reason another person attempting to recruit may find it hard to get the new person in resulting in that they [new person] may not be added; disallowing them to join based on poor judgment. It’s not to say that this method is a terrible idea but in fact, it teaches social cues which in long term helps protect the group as a whole. The recruiter must be able to pick up on subtle non-visual cues. These might be a poor attitude which may result in future confrontations, argumentive behavior about group sportsmanship, and general behavior towards other players. Communities teach structure and command. Today the world is set up in a corporate structure and it matters how you act, speak, and behave. Quite a few communities break up members into small groups that allow for growth and support. Groups are lead by one or multiple members which allow the important skill to be fostered. Allowing members to create their own type of group within the confines of the rules and guidelines set above himself. Becoming a leader helps you learn problem-solving skills, internal dispute resolution, and politics. For example accusations of cheating, behavior, and ill intent require leaders to get involved. A poor judgment made by leadership may cause membership decline, arguments, and much more. Leaders must make decisions based on facts and witness statements. What makes this harder for communities is that this is not done in person to person but over voice and text. This is not to say that you cannot learn something but it allows leaders to learn how to maneuver a conversation with delicacy. Communities make great strides in group participation. Requiring people to work together teaches trust, verbal communication, and support of each other. Today we must be able to trust each other to get ahead in the world even though it is a dog eat dog world. Basic verbal communication is taught in these types of events and group projects which allow others to express themselves and teach which words best describe situations. Situational awareness forces people to learn what to say, how to say, and when to say something. For example, people must be able to understand when presenting and who they are communicating with what is appropriate and when it is an appropriate time. Some people acquire these skill sets outside of communities and allow them to practice in this setting while others learn through the communities itself. Besides skill sets being taught gaming communities affect gameplay. Some small groups that now are professionals came from small or big time communities. Nowadays getting a large group together seems to be a great idea to go match by match and dominate your opponents. This allows for friendships that go beyond the game and stretch for over many years. Games themselves teach but communities enhance the experience allowing for so much more. Instead of just playing by yourself you have a community of people who are ready and eager to log online and play. The video games don’t have to be just violent as some would say and shooters but you have calmer games such as Minecraft, Animal Crossing, Mario games, and much more. Hoping that communities can stay on track for stability we shall see in the future what will become of them. Will they start to end or will they prosper bringing new ideas to the table.
